Yellowstone National Park Post Cards & Postcards
The oldest hotel in our national park system, Lake Yellowstone Hotel is home base to us anytime we travel to Yellowstone. There is, quite simply no other place like it in the park. It's like stepping back in time to the very beginning days of our national park system. The style and the ambience is exactly what you would expect. The lobby is the centerpiece of the hotel with great seating for relaxing, reading, gazing out over the lake, having cocktails, etc. There are also a number of small tables with 4 chairs around for playing cards or board games with friends or family.
