'50-Cabin Complex' near Yellowstone Natl. Park
Delaware North Cos. Parks & Resorts has added to its hospitality portfolio near Yellowstone National Park by developing a series of self-catering cabins that just opened.
Dubbed the “Explorer Cabins at Yellowstone,” the 50-cabin complex is at attracting tourists who want to combine rustic ambiance with modern amenities, Business First of Buffalo reported.
Buffalo-based Delaware North decided to move ahead with the project to take advantage of the “cabineering” trend that’s taking place around Yellowstone and other, major national parks. Cabineering provides home-like comforts and perks but in more remote destinations. The development represents a multi-million investment by Delaware North.
Designed in three different models — the Montana, Old Faithful and Yellowstone, the cabins include such amenities as working fireplace, private bathrooms, free Wi-Fi, flat screen HDTVs, cable, wireless phone service and modern kitchenettes. Some of the cabins are also “dog-friendly.”
Yellowstone related artwork from local, Montana-based artists are in every cabin.
“These cabins are an exciting concept,” said Rick Abramson, Delaware North Cos. Parks & Resorts president. “Our guests can immerse themselves in the natural beauty of Yellowstone while enjoying access to technology, modern conveniences and hotel amenities.”
Abramson said the cabins are in clusters of 10 spread over five different “camp” locations – each named after early Yellowstone pioneers and explorers. One cluster, the Washburn, includes dog-friendly cabins.
Delaware North has developed 10 Montana Cabins that can house up to four people, another 10 Old Faithful Cabins that can also house up to four people and 30 Yellowstone Cabins that can handle up to six people.
The Explorer Cabins are Delaware North’s first new development near Yellowstone since acquiring the Yellowstone Park Hotel six years ago. Delaware North also owns and operates the Gray Wolf Inn and Holiday Inn West Yellowstone near the park.
