I've been in the process of planning our trip for next summer and trying to arrange the lodging accommodations in the park is like putting together a 1,000 piece puzzle and not knowing what the pieces (choices) look like.
Depending on the date I choose, either 'x' is available but not 'y' or 'z'; or 'z' is available but not 'x' & 'y.' Then there's a whole bunch of variations of 'x' 'y' & 'z'
I'm hoping to divide our time between Roosevelt Lodge Cabins, Lake Lodge or Lake Hotel Cabins*, & Old Faithful Inn**.
The dates that have some form of availability now is June 27 - July 5th & June 6 - June 14. Which week do you think is better or do I base it on the availability of 'x' 'y' or 'z'? I know I can check back & hope for cancellations but for now do I book around 'x' or 'y' or 'z' as I don't know which property is more likely to open up.
*Lake Hotel Frontier Cabin vs. Lake Lodge Western Cabin ??
**Old Faithful West Wing Frontside vs.Old Faithful Inn Old House Shared Bath??
All rooms are based on 2 doubles or 2 queens. We don't mind a shared bath as we are campers & it might keep our 2 teenage daughters from fighting over the bathroom : )
Money is not THE determining factor as we want a real Yellowstone experience but we won't be staying in any suites either.
