Superb, rustic lodge in fantastic location near lake with breath taking views and many trails to choose from. Cabins are roomy with great WiFi, no cell service. Excellent breakfast and dinner with to go lunch option while lodge dining only open to guests this season
We loved our stay at the Jenny Lake Lodge, particularly after The Lake Yellowstone Hotel. The customer service is great ….they all were cheerful and professional and went out of their way to ensure guests had a good experience. The location is quiet and secluded, on a one way section of the Jenny Lake road, off the main park road. The cabins are simple but comfortable and they even have WiFi. Walking trails along lakes and streams are literally right out the door of the main lodge. And the food was outstanding!! Dinner there is a real treat ….particularly for a National Park Lodge.
Lovely historic cabins and lodge. The 5 course dining experience at night and for breakfast would be hard to top. The wait staff were amazing. The cabin was clean and homey, and all the staff went out of their way to accommodate us and provide assistance with directions and recommendations of sights and trails. The horse back trail ride provided gorgeous views of the forest and String Lake-one of 3 lakes easily within walking distance. Nicole and Ali did a wonderful job of preparing us for the ride and shared lots of interesting facts about the area. Definitely would ride again.
This was a beautiful and charming place to take in the majesty of the Tetons. A well managed facility with cabins that were simple but had all you needed for a relaxing stay. Great hiking right near by. Even in the rain that was abundant during our stay we loved it. Great food as well and staff was exceptional. Worth every cent. And do not stay in Yellowstone at their overpriced lodges that are horribly managed. It is an easy two hour meandering drive from Jenny Lake Lodge.
Like most NPS lodges within National Parks, Jenny Lake Lodge offers simple, historic lodging. Nothing fancy, and the cabins are small, but what you are paying for is the location-right in the center of Grand Tetons with incredible views and access to all of the best trails. We were there for 2 days and didn't use the car once. Aside from the spectacular setting, the real treat here is the customer service and dining room. Every single employee I encountered, from the front desk (thank you Joelle!) to the dining room (Cathy, Lance, Michael, Rachel) to jack of all trades (Alton) and the general manager, who remembered our group at the cornhole gathering was OUTSTANDING and really did whatever they could to make our stay enjoyable. The food was spectacular. Beyond the quality and presentation, just having set meals and the luxury of not having to hunt around for food every day was so relaxing. We opted for the boxed lunch as well and it was totally worth it-yet another detail I didn't have to think about. And yes, the food really is incredible. The bikes are awesome-really fun to bike around the lake and Jenny Lake loop as well as over to String Lake for a quick dip. There are hosted events each cocktail hour which are a fun way to relax before dinner and I agree with previous comments that the manager is omnipresent. The only thing that was so-so was the horseback riding-the head wrangler (Nicole?) seems a little angry and is a tad abrasive with guests. I appreciate that she has a lot to manage, but a softer touch might be helpful. And the reservation system could be improved-I know everything is jumbled with COVID, but having to sign up in person at the corral 24 hours prior to a ride is a big barrier. JLL ranks among the top NPS lodges, and unlike El Tovar or the Awahnee, it is intimate and small, allowing for a total immersion into the park.…
