Visiting the Grand Teton National Park and Yellowstone has become an annual tradition in the last few years, since rediscovering the place I first stayed as a teenager with my family. Now, we go and enjoy the perfect weather just as it's getting hot and steamy back East. Decided to try the cabins at Colter Bay Village for a six-night stay, and was really pleased. First, it's a great value, especially compared to other more upscale options within the parks or even the high-priced hotels in Jackson. At $155 per night, the cabin was basic but clean and exactly as advertised. Some cabins are stand-alone; others duplexed, but be sure to get one with private bath as we did. Ours was more quiet than expected, and right in the woods, laid out beautifuly amongst the trees and spreads of wild lupines. No AC, TV, etc., but why would you want that? The only issue we had (expected in the woods) were some spiders and ants that had to be squashed from time to time. The hot water worked great, and the shower had better pressue than most hotels do. The really great thing about Colter Bay is the location, just 18 miles from the south entrance to Yellowstone; close to the other attractions within the Grand Teton park; close to the amenities and fine restaurant at Jackson Lake Lodge; and just 45 minutes from Jackson Hole Airport. Colter Bay Village has a great marina, and the setting is beautiful. We loved kayaking just steps from our cabin with a good supply without a wait. We rented two single kayaks for three hours for $90. What a fantastic activity so close. The bookstore, convenience store, general store, all had good supplies, including hand-dipped ice cream! The two restaurant options, in the same building are an easy walk from the cabins; and we had breakfast there every day. The buffet is a good value, but there are other options like great (huge) pancakes; trout (had this three times!); and even steak and eggs. Coming back late one night from Yellowstone, we were glad the Cafe Court was open until 10pm for a sandwich and beer. Just up the road, don't miss Leek's Marina for some great pizza. At $155 per night, this was a great value, in a great location, with friendly staff and scenery that simply cannot be beat. Stand at the marina and view the Tetons, and you will never want to leave.
