Lobbies in Lodges

Another type of architecture that I like VERY much is the lodge style. Rustic and yet very grand at the same time; I find it stunning. I've collected a few postcards depicting some examples. At Yellowstone National Park, the lobby at the Old Faithful Inn:
Glacier Park Lodge in Montana:
At the Ahwahnee Hotel in Yosemite National Park, this room is actually known as The Great Lounge:
The gorgeous lobby at Disney's Grand Californian Hotel - we had the pleasure of staying there just once, a few years ago - what a beautiful place!
And the Wilderness Lodge at Walt Disney World - we spent our honeymoon trip there, and it is gorgeous, as well:
If I am lucky, sometime in my life I may get to stay at another of these fabulous lodges. A simply spectacular architectural style.

I haven't been to Glacier Park or the Wilderness Lodge at Disney World, but the others are all just breathtaking. I really love the Yellowstone Old Faithful Inn. I remember the rug in the restaurant at the Grand Californian in Disneyland. What a great place! Super post Heidi. Love T

We stayed at the Wilderness Lodge for the first time last summer. Had previously stayed at other places in Walt Disney World. Would have to say we liked the Wilderness Lodge the best. Can't wait to go again, hopefully soon!

I especially liked the Ahwanee one because it reminds me of a Frank Lloyd Wright style. Twyla
