Things to do during "cabin time" in West Yellowstone
West Yellowstone lodging and cabins offer a vacation experience, not a hotel experience. There is never a bad time of year to visit Montana and stay in famous West Yellowstone lodging. All seasons are great for trips to this scenic destination. The town is adjacent to the Yellowstone National Park, making it a great place for cabin rentals. With so many things to do and so many places to stay, West Yellowstone lodging is a great option for vacationers from all over.
In the spring, Yellowstone National Park opens again as the snow melts. This is a very unique time of year to be at your West Yellowstone cabin. Motor vehicles are not allowed in the park and the spring and early summer bring out many different types of wildlife. The lodging in West Yellowstone is the perfect basecamp, allowing your group to experience the park at this time of year. Bears and bison emerge from their winter hiding spots and make for great wildlife watching opportunities while staying at your private cottage.
While summers in West Yellowstone get hot, the beautiful weather offers so many fun ways to spend your cabin time. Hiking, biking, fishing, kayaking, horseback riding and nature watching are only a few of the many things that you can do while visiting West Yellowstone. Find the perfect vacation rental on Hebgen Lake for fun water activities and close to the mountains for high elevation hiking and bike trail riding. West Yellowstone also offers many events near your cottage in the summer including weekly performances at the Playmill Theatre, a rodeo and several different tours.
As the weather begins to cool off, the fall colors bring beautiful scenery to the front door of your Montana vacation rental. This time of year is best for wildlife watching with many opportunities for stunning pictures at and near your West Yellowstone lodging. As the snow falls, new outdoor activities present themselves. With 143 inches of snowfall on average, skiing and snowmobiling are very popular winter activities. Snow-covered trails right outside your cabin are irresistible for outdoor enthusiasts. Take a guided snowmobile tour or explore the trails on your own. Ice fishing, ice-skating, sledding and snowshoeing are great ways to spend your winter cabin time.
