ON-SITE AMENITIES

YELLOWSTONE VACATIONS ON-SITE AMENITIES

At Yellowstone Vacations, we are excited to provide you with a number of ways to relax and have fun just steps away from your hotel room or cabin. With options including video games, swimming, bicycle rentals and even roasting s’mores over the fire, there is an activity for everyone at Yellowstone Vacations.

Outdoor Fire Pits

What would a vacation to Yellowstone be without the time-honored tradition of gathering around the campfire? You won’t find this feature at most hotels, but we’ve got the campfire handled when you stay at the Explorer Cabins at Yellowstone, Gray Wolf Inn & Suites, Ridgeline Hotel® at Yellowstone or Yellowstone Park Hotel!

At the Explorer Cabins at Yellowstone, and Jim Bridger Explorer Cabins you will find a community fire pit near each cluster of cabins where you can meet your neighbors and share stories of your day’s adventures.

Outdoor Fire Pits

We also recently installed a gas fire pit right next door at Gray Wolf Inn & Suites on our new outdoor patio, and another at Yellowstone Park Hotel in our new outdoor entry area! And, just to make things a little sweeter, complimentary s’mores kits are available at all three of these lodging options. Come pull up a chair and sit a spell, and warm yourself by the comforting fire.

Fires are lit from 5pm – 11pm for roasting s’mores.

On-site Laundry

Being on vacation means taking a break from the household chores of everyday life. But let’s face it. Sometimes there just isn’t enough luggage space to pack all the clothes you’ll need. The good news is we have free laundry facilities available! Guest laundry is available year-round at the Holiday Inn® West Yellowstone and Gray Wolf Inn & Suites, and seasonally at the Yellowstone Park Hotel.

Heated Underground Parking

A winter trip to Yellowstone is an experience unlike any other, and will leave you with memories that will last a lifetime. But digging your car out of the snow each morning is not necessarily something you’ll want to include in those memories. When you stay at Gray Wolf Inn & Suites, however, this is not a concern thanks to our heated underground parking! For some guests, this amenity alone is reason enough to stay at Gray Wolf Inn & Suites. Simply park and drive at your leisure, and don’t worry about having to deal with the snow shovel.
