In winter, Old Faithful Snow Lodge offers a truly unique experience.
Lodging in the area began with the Old Faithful Inn in 1904; nearly two decades later, the Old Faithful Lodge was built, after the park was opened to automobiles. Travelers had always requested lodging close to Old Faithful and the hotels allowed visitors to spend comfortable nights close to the geyser—in the summer, at least.
Winter travel into the park took off in the early 1970s, creating the need for a winter Snow Lodge, which stood from 1971 to 1998. A new lodge was completed in 1999 and has welcomed guests as the most modern hotel in the park since that time. While it may be the newest and most modern, the lodge structure harmonizes with the surrounding landscape to complement the other historic buildings in the area.
A short walk from Old Faithful Geyser, the hotel’s location makes it possible for us to set out on a variety of explorations right from our door. When we are not outside, enjoy the fire as you sip a hot beverage in the lounge, while the snow falls outside.
