What to expect when staying at the Old Faithful Lodge Cabins in Yellowstone National Park. These historic cabins are located near Old Faithful.
Old Faithful Lodge Cabins - Yellowstone National Park
Don't miss the epic views of Old Faithful Geyser from the lobby building. The Old Faithful Lodge is located just down from the Old Faithful Inn.
The main lodge was built in the 1920′s featuring massive logs and stone pillars. This is a great place to take a break from any inclement weather if you run into it. There is an amazing stone fireplace in the lobby.
One of the great things about the lodge cabins is being within walking distance to Old Faithful and the Visitor Center.
The Old Faithful Frontier Lodge Cabins are located in the perfect location for exploring the Old Faithful Area, Midway Geyser Basin, and Lower Geyser Basin.
The cabins are behind the lodge in two groups. One great thing about these cabins is there is parking really close to each of the cabins.
While our cabin did not have a view of Old Faithful we could easily walk to the boardwalk and watch for an eruption or walk into the main lodge building for meals or to check out the great gift shops.

Frontier Cabin 1 Double & 1 Single
We stayed in a cabin with a full-size bed and a twin bed. I will say these cabins are not huge but they are super cute and in a great location.
The cabin had 2 beds, a sink in the main area, and a nice size desk. There was a small shelf by the door for hanging clothes and a metal fan.
The bathroom is TINY! As in you will need to straddle the toilet to close the door to get to the shower. The bathroom has basic toiletries and towels.
There was a small heater but we visited in August so we just left the windows open for fresh air and to keep the cabin cool. It was a bit chilly in the morning even in August. When we woke up it was 37 degrees out so make sure you pack a sweater or warm clothing to start the day if you plan to get up early.
I found the bed to be pretty comfortable. It was not super hard and I had a great night's sleep.
The cabin we stayed in was one of 4 cabins within the same building. We could hear people getting ready for bed and showering at night. It wasn’t crazy loud but if you are a light sleeper you may want to pack earplugs.
Our cabin was along a road so we also heard cars going semi late and early in the morning. One thing about Yellowstone is there are people up and moving at all times of the day.
If you are looking for basic accommodations in a great location the Old Faithful Frontier Cabins would work great!
The Frontier Cabins come with either one double bed or one double bed and one single bed. We stayed in a cabin with 1 double bed and 1 single bed.
These cabins have private bathrooms with a shower, toilet, and sink.
There are also historic cabins that have a sink but no private bath or toilet. Toilets and communal showers are located near these cabins.
Things to know
We did have 3-4 concrete steps to reach the entrance of our cabin. It looked like some cabins have only 1 or 2 steps. If you have any mobility restrictions make sure to let the lodge know.
