Cabin for a family of five?

Which areas have cabins that can sleep five? We will be traveling with 2 adults and 3 kids. One of our kids will be more than happy to grab a sleeping bag and/or air mattress and sleep on the floor (in fact they will probably argue over who will be able to do that). I would rather not split up into 2 cabins.

I would suggest that you call Xanterra to find out which facilities can accommodate a family of 5 - they don't list that info on their website.

I do know that the larger rooms book up very quickly, so depending on when your trip is, you should call as soon as you know your dates.

Also, if your children are younger most of the cabins with double beds (esp. the "Western" ones) have enough room for a sleeping bag on the floor.

Good Luck

We are a family of 5 also. We are booked at Canyon Lodge for 3 nights in July. We will have 2 double beds, 1 single and a private bathroom.

If you're open to staying just outside the park, in Gardiner MT .. North Yellowstone Guest Cabins are a great option, located on a privately owned ranch.

I emailed Xanterra a few months ago with this very same question, as we are also a family of 5.

Options are: Old Faithful Inn old house room (no private bath)

Cabin at Canyon (don't remember if if had private bath or not)

Roosevelt Rough rider cabin (no bath)

Yellowstone Lake Hotel room (private bath)

They also said that the rooms/cabins that sleep 5 (and sometimes six... I think the Roosevelt cabin has 3 double beds) are very limited. In fact, Roosevelt only has one cabin that will sleep over 4! So, you'll want to call Xanterra direct ASAP to see what they still have available.

We are a family of 5, also. We stayed in a Western Cabin in the Canyon Area this past August. We had two beds, and one child slept on the floor in a sleeping bag. We had a private bathroom and the room was very nice. In fact, it was one of the nicest rooms we had on our trip.

Hope I'm not too late in replying. We recently stayed at a cabin in Gardiner, just 5 minutes from the north entrance to the park. Go to abovetherestlodge.com for information. There are 4 or 5 cabins. The owner told us he built each one bigger than the previous one, so you should have enough room. The cabin was great and the views from the cabin were just incredible!!!
