Het Yellowstone National Park werd in 1872 als eerste park ter wereld tot nationaal park gedoopt. De meer dan 10.000 geothermische attracties, zoals geisers en modderpoelen trekken toeristen van over de hele wereld. Het park strekt zich uit over het zuiden van Montana en het noorden van Wyoming. Het grootste gedeelte van Yellowstone National Park bestaat uit bos. Onder het Yellowstone National Park bevindt zich een vulkanische hotspot. Dergelijke hotspots komen wel meer voor, maar het is een zeldzaamheid dat ze onder een continent liggen en niet in de zee. De vulkaan onder Yellowstone geldt als één van de grootste ter wereld. Yellowstone geldt als één van de populairste nationale parken en wordt sinds de jaren zestig jaarlijks bezocht door twee miljoen toeristen.
We stayed here one day on our bus tour of Yellow Stone. The setting for this hotel was more beautiful than I expected. The hotel itself was old but well cared for. The rooms were comfortable with high ceilings. Be prepared for no tv or wi-if. There is entertainment in a ball room with a piano player and beautiful views out the many windows. The lobby is beautiful with comfortable sitting and fireplace. Since the hotel/rooms are old, the heating/cooling of the rooms can be a challenge. The heat is radiator and the the cooling is a table fan and windows. Our early October stay was a good time for temperature control. There were some rooms that did not have a bathroom but required using a public restroom in the hotel. There is also the wildlife that gets lots of attention here. The main attraction is the elk and the main elk is the buck nicknamed "touchdown". There is a separate dinning room in a building that is a short walk from the hotel. The beautiful hot springs a short walk from the hotel. There is also a convenient store / cafe and gas station near by.
"Quaint and relaxing"
We loved our cabin! Quiet, clean and relaxing, the cabins are located behind the main hotel on narrow streets that form little "blocks". Front doors face a central green area perfect for talking with your neighbors. Porches have chairs and it is very relaxing. Our cabin was attached to another, but there are single cabins as well. Quick and convenient walk to main buildings and restaurant as well as the main attraction: the terraces.
"Charming and Quaint"
Beautiful setting, right at the edge of the Mammoth Springs area. Plenty of things to see, places to hike and a resident elk herd. "Touchdown", the bull elk and his harem serenade travelers with their bugling. The hotel is very clean and staff is friendly. We didn't even miss having a television in our room.
We visited here after being in the cabins at Lake Yellowstone and we were very happy with Mammoth cabins. They were more appealing inside and out and had a seating area outside. Not very big, no coffee making facilities but shower and heating worked well. To be inside the park and to be able to watch the Elk grazing was worth staying in basic accommodation.
"Great comfortable cabins with resident elk"
We'd previously stayed at Yellowstone Lake which is much more isolated, but Mammoth hotel & cabins are just a few miles inside the park boundaries, by the main north road into the park with also several admin buildings around, so it feels much less in the wilds. There is a resident herd of elk on the lawns around the property. Front-desk were spectacularly brusque and unhelpful both on arrival and departure - they might as well have worn a badge saying "oh no, not more nuisance customers bothering us". Our cabin was just 100 yards from the hotel, smaller than our cabin at Yellowstone, but very nicely renovated with some nice touches to give the feel of a 1930's place. Quaint and more importantly, comfortable. Female elk browsing 10 feet from our window next morning. Average food for dinner, but at reasonable prices. Bar has great selection of whiskies including Montana & Wyoming brands and a friendly knowledgeable bartender. Breakfast isn't included, but we had porridge which was fine, though it came luke-warm first time around.
