When it comes to traveling with young children we often opt to stay in a home rather than a hotel. I love having a central place where we can all hang out at the end of a long and adventurous day, so when we found this lodge it looked like exactly the thing we were looking for; lots of bedrooms/beds, great location, and incredibly beautiful! Little did we know, we would be getting so much more than we ever could have hoped. It was without question, the best vacation home we have ever stayed in!
From the moment we walked in the door I immediately fell in love. The main living area is huge with high ceilings and is directly connected to the kitchen/dining area, which is everything I look for in a vacation home. I don't like to lose out on any time with my family when I'm vacationing so being able to cook and still feel part of everything that is going on is an essential element for me. It was immaculate and had a fully stocked kitchen with everything you might need to cook and prepare meals.
To top it off, the lodge overlooks some of the most beautiful country I have ever seen and with large windows that reach the ceiling, you can enjoy the view from the comfort of the home. HOWEVER, there is also a beautiful deck that wraps around half the cabin where we spent our evenings playing cards and enjoying the summer weather!
My kids loooooved the built-in theater downstairs. We grabbed blankets and popcorn and had an awesome movie night without actually having to leave the house. If you have kids, this is bound to be one of the highlights for them!
The location couldn't have been better either; a 30-45 minute drive to Yellowstone and about 20 minutes from Cody. We were so close to everything we needed but just far enough to feel like we had been transported and tucked away in the mountains with no distractions around us.
I honestly cannot say enough good about this cabin! If I could stay there again and again, I would! So many wonderful memories came from our stay here and if you get the chance to stay there, do not pass it up!!
