New Lodging Trend, "Cabineering," Debuts in West Yellowstone
WEST YELLOWSTONE, Mont., May 15, 2013-- "Cabineering," a new trend offered in West Yellowstone, provides the comforts of home and the perks of a hotel for adventurous travelers in remote areas. Explorer Cabins at Yellowstone, a 50-cabin property, is scheduled to open July 1. Explorer Cabins will provide a unique vacation experience by combining several lodging trends, including cabineering, "generational travel" and dog-friendly travel.
These self-catering cabins are located just minutes away from the west entrance to Yellowstone National Park and a short drive from the Old Faithful Geyser. The cabins are clustered in five distinct natural camp settings to encourage a sense of community for families or friends traveling together. The five camps are named after early pioneers and explorers of Yellowstone National Park, namely Washburn, Colter, Bridger, Russell, and Langford. The Washburn Camp includes dog-friendly cabins.
"These cabins are an exciting concept. They offer a shared vacation experience for extended families and groups," said Delaware North Companies Parks & Resorts President Rick Abramson. "Our guests can immerse themselves in the natural beauty of Yellowstone National Park while enjoying access to technology, modern conveniences and hotel amenities. The Explorer Cabins provide the perfect combination of style, convenience and location."
The Explorer Cabins are the first newly built lodging option in West Yellowstone since the Delaware North Parks & Resorts-owned-and-operated Yellowstone Park Hotel was established in 2007. Delaware North also owns and operates Gray Wolf Inn and Suites and the Holiday Inn West Yellowstone.
