Most of the time here on Pineapple Outfitter we talk about the coastal design we love, but today we’re going to switch gears and look at something different. The rustic mountain design is outstanding and definitely worth a look. Have you been to the Old Faithful Inn and Yellowstone National Park?
Each time we visit a national park I expect to see exceptional rustic mountain architecture and design. Why? Because Yellowstone spoiled me. Yellowstone was the first and original National Park and the architecture definitely reflects its heritage. The architect Robert Reamer wanted to create a hotel that reflected the natural beauty of the park.
Fun facts about the Old Faithful Inn at Yellowstone
It was built in 1904. The east and West wing additions were added in 1919 and 1927 to house 340 guest rooms along with a restaurant and a lobby that is six stories tall.
Dances ware held here six nights a week for many years.
It closed early for the season once in August 1959 due to some structural damage from the Hebgen Lake earthquake in nearby Montana.
In 1988, the Old Faithful Inn had to be evacuated due to the North Fork Fires getting too close. Luckily, firefighters were able to save the building.
The Old Faithful Inn sells out fast, so you might want to think about putting in a reservation for next summer.
Do you want to stay at the Old Faithful Inn and bask in some rustic mountain design for a weekend? We want to hear from you. Have you been to Yellowstone? What did you think? Where did you stay? What did you do?
