If I'm not sleeping in a tent in a national park, the next best place is a cabin, preferably a log cabin. And there certainly are lots of them, from the Colter Bay cabins at Grand Teton National Park to the tent cabins in Yosemite National Park. Which cabins are your favorites when it comes to visiting the national parks?
The Colter Bay cabins certainly are charming, while Yosemite's tent cabins might require a cultivated taste for some. I've been intrigued by the Roosevelt Fireplace Cottages in Olympic National Park, and enjoyed the rusticity of the Roughrider Cabins in Yellowstone National Park.
But those are just scraping the surface of the many options that exist out there. Since some parks are ringed by cabins just beyond their borders, for this week's survey let's also open it up to cabins and cottages that are within 5 miles of a park. That should toss into the mix the cottages near Acadia National Park, cabins that surround Great Smoky Mountains National Park, those at the Tioga Pass Resort outside Yosemite, and any others that attract national park visitors.
So, what say thee?
