Just adopted three children! Let’s go to YNP!
I’m internet savvy yet our decision to take our family of seven (youth: 12-19 yo) to YNP during this last week of August is stressing me out because I've never had to think of a "we need either two rooms or a place big enough for..." New territory.
We are planning to stay 5 nights specifically for YNP.
1. My search and impulse so far has me thinking: nail down accommodations ASAP before your options narrow more; then consider itinerary. But I've read in several posts that some travelers switch lodging within their stay to have better access to some part of park. What are the pros and cons of staying put versus staying in one place with my clan? Do you really save a LOT of driving time by moving around? It seems from anywhere outside the park it's prepare to “drive, drive and more drive" to see the sights, yes?
2. Can someone recommend specific VRBOs which provide good access to the park and were wonderful to come home to in the evening? A view would be great.
There is Absaroka Lodge, which is not a vrbo, but fits our budget, places us in adjacent rooms and says it has great views. But even better lodging would make mommy very, very happy if it’s out there to be had and we can afford it.
If we spent a little more than $250 (for absaroka’s 2 rooms) does someone have a place I should look into from personal experience or recommendation to you? Budget: will pay up to $350 inclusive of taxes for something more special and less than an hour from park entrance.
Thank you so much in advance!
