The Huffington Post recently published a piece titled “On the Culture Front: Exploring Yellowstone and the Inaugural Beer Fest in the West,” and the Delaware North-owned-and-operated Explorer Cabins at Yellowstone were included for adding to the overall experience.
“It helped that my digs, a two-bedroom Explorer Cabin operated by Delaware North just outside the park gate, came with an electric fireplace that came to fiery life with the flick of a switch,” writer Chris Kompanek said of the Explorer Cabins. “Smores and a nearby fire pit were also included. The location was ideal for its walking proximity to the beer festivities.”
In addition to managing Yellowstone’s retail experience through its partnership with the U.S. National Park Service and owning and operating three hotels in West Yellowstone, Mont., Delaware North developed the 50-cabin Explorer Cabins, for which the company coined the phrase “cabineering.”
The Explorer Cabins bring a combination of hotel amenities mixed with the comforts of home – against the backdrop of a national park. These self-catering cabins are located just minutes away from the west entrance to Yellowstone and a short drive from the Old Faithful Geyser. They’re clustered in five distinct natural camp settings to encourage a sense of community for families or friends traveling together. Some even welcome dogs.
Meanwhile, aside from writing about his experiences at the inaugural Beer Fest in the West, Kompanek spoke to the world-renowned beauty of Yellowstone National Park.
“Almost felt like I was stepping onto another planet. Vapors rise from jagged craters and mix with an early morning fog that blurs the lines between earth and sky,” Kompanek said, referencing Yellowstone’s incredible concentration of thermal features. “Wooden pathways connect what seems like an endless expanse of these natural wonders and often ice over, amping up the adventure quotient. Just don’t fall in.”
