We stayed at GVRR this August for our annual family vacation. The staff goes above and beyond to make sure you are comfortable and having a good time. We stayed in one of the lodges that has 2 bedrooms with a great room in between. You walk into a mud room with a long bench and pegs to hang your coats plus there is a washer and dryer. In the great room, there is a full size refridgerator and mini kitchenette. Each of the three rooms have sliding glass doors out onto decks that have a fantastic view of the Grand Tetons. There are also hammocks to go hang out in as you watch the cattle and horses graze in the pasture. There are no televisions, just beautiful views and outdoor activities. You can choose to ride in the morning, afternoon or both on the horse they have reserved for you for the week. Or you can go down to the river or pond to fly fish, go into Jackson which is about a 25 minute drive, to whitewater raft or shop. Slide lake is 2 miles away with rocky and sandy beaches. I will warn you that the Internet on the ranch is practically non-existent and if you have Verizon for cell phone service, it does not work on the ranch. AT &T only works at the barn, so plan ahead. There is a hard wired computer you can use in the main lodge if needed. We would drive a little ways towards Kelly (@3 miles) to get cell phone service when we needed it. The food was varied and good with 2 cookouts. All three meals were provided and they would pack you a lunch if you went on an excursion during the day. If you are looking for a vacation where you can totally unplug and enjoy being outdoors, then I highly recommend this!
