Another cabin option is located in an area of Yellowstone considered a favorite by President Theodore Roosevelt. Family-style dining is offered, as well as a corral operation providing horseback trail and stagecoach rides, as well as an Old West Dinner Cookout.

My expectations were a lot higher than Xanterra is willing to deliver. They must find the lowest bidder for feeding their guests, and then gouge the guests with ridiculous pricing. Not fresh, not flavorful, not at all what Teddy would have desired! DO NOT get the "bison tamales" - had no flavor and you could tell they were the lowest quality just by looking at them.
The coup de gras, however, was the mouse that came in from a crack in the floor to feed on the droppings. If it's in the dining room - he & his pals must run havoc in the kitchen!
We loved our little cabin in Roosevelt. We stayed a few days in mid-August and it was perfect weather for hiking and adventures. Went on the Horseback ride/cookout and had a great time. My hubs couldn’t quite make it comfortably on the horse so they quickly added him on the wagon ride to the cookout and all went well. Our cabin was clean and well appointed. This was our first stop in Yellowstone and after a staying in other lodgings, this was our favorite. Many less tourists than Canyon and Old Faithful made it much more relaxing. The food was good in the restaurant and everyone was helpful.
To quote John Muir..”To sit in solitude, to think in solitude with only the music of the stream and the cedar to break the flow of silence, there lies the value of wilderness.”
