The Lake Lodge Yellowstone National Park offers a variety of cabins. The Lake Lodge is perfectly placed for exploring Yellowstone Lake and seeing Elk.
Lake Lodge - Yellowstone National Park
The Lake Lodge is located on the shores of Lake Yellowstone and has 186 cabins. There are recently renovated Western and Frontier cabins along with basic Pioneer Cabins.
Don't miss the gorgeous large porch that has rocking chairs perfectly placed for looking out over Yellowstone Lake.
The main lodge also has a gift shop, lounge, and two great fireplaces with chairs for relaxing.
Western Cabin 2 Queens
The Yellowstone Lake Lodge Cabin we stayed in had 2 queen beds, a shared nightstand, a larger dining/work table, and a dresser with a private bathroom.
These cabins are great! They are located in the perfect location for exploring the West Thumb Geyser Basin, Hayden Valley, and Yellowstone Lake.

I will say that the bed mattresses are very firm. They had two small pillows for each bed so if you are someone who loves pillows you may need to request more or bring your own pillow.
There is no air conditioning in the cabins but there is a fan. We were able to open the window and sliding glass door before we went to bed to get some cross ventilation with a plug-in fan to cool the cabin down.
We did find the sliding glass door was unlocked when we first got to the cabin. This is well worth checking before you leave any gear or your stuff in the cabin and head out to explore.
Overnight the cabin was really quiet and peaceful. When I got up in the middle of the night you could see hundreds of stars glowing.
The bathroom has a deep tub with a shower and toilet. The sink is just outside the bathroom near the main room. The shower had amazing water pressure!
The tub is fairly deep so if you have any knee or mobility restrictions it may be hard to step up into.
One tip is to not judge the cabins by how they look on the outside. The grounds are a bit worn and the road does have quite a few potholes. The buildings look warn and kind of blah but trust me the insides are fantastic.
We did not see a ton of electrical outlets in the room so you may want a charging bar if you need to charge multiple camera batteries or phones.
There is no television or telephone in the room.
Outside the sliding glass door, there was one Adirondack chair.
We stayed in a Western Cabin with two Queen beds.
Western Cabins have private baths with a shower or tub/shower, toilet, and sink.
This is one of our favorite cabins in Yellowstone National Park.
