If you don't already know you have to understand that everything in Grand Teton and Yellowstone National Parks are somewhat overpriced compared to what you get in most other parts of the country. That being said our cabin in Colter Bay Village while basic in ammenties was more than acceptable. When we first walked into the room I was somewhat taken back by the fact that the cabin was truely a log cabin with the inside walls being logs and the rooms are rustic and basic and the look was something I really liked. Our cabin had two double and one twin bed in a single room duplex cabin. The log wall must be very soundproof because we never heard our neighbors. The cabin was very clean, the beds were very comfortable, and while small the bathroom was worked fine for our family of 4 including 2 teenagers. The only real downside for the cabins was the lack of a table for eating on and the amount of drawer space for putting away clothes. We packed some extra hangers so the drawer space wasn't too much of a problem. We were glad that we packed an extension cord to extend blow dryers etc to mirrors within the cabin. The staff was very accomodating and quick to provide anything we needed which was just a couple of extra pillows. The maid service was always done well. The lodge office had wireless internet along with a computer for public use for checking email etc.
The Colter Bay location is somewhat north in GTNP but we were quickly and easily able to get most everywhere we wanted to go within GTNP for wildlife watching and hiking. We even mad e 2 drives to Jackson which was less than 45 minutes from Colter Bay Village.
While we loaded up on slightly less expensive groceries in Jackson before heading up to the parks the store at Colter Bay Village was very well supplied with everything from drinks, snacks, groceries, to souveniers.
There are nightly National Park Service presentations and events at the amplitheater next to the Park Museum in Colter Bay VIllage that are well worth checking into. There are different topics every night. The night we went was really neat because as we listened to the Ranger talk and watched a video on GTNP there was deer that kept wanding in and around the amplitheater giving us another neat experience.
We really enjoyed our experience at Colter Bay Village.
The only issue thoroughout Colter Bay Village, GTNP and Yellowstone were the swarms of mosquitos that would come out about sundown .
