We had a great stay at Signal Mountain Lodge. This was the last of 5 places that my husband and I stayed on a trip through Glacier, Yellowstone, and Grand Teton National parks, and it was certainly the nicest (the rest being mostly very basic motel rooms). If you are used to luxury hotels or business travel, you will probably not be very impressed with Signal Mountain. However, if the rustic charm of staying in a cabin appeals to you, this is a great place. We stayed in a 1 bed cabin with a gas fireplace. We actually used the fireplace even though it was August (it can get pretty cold there in the evenings - pack a sweater!). Our cabin was very cute and had a fairly modern bathroom. During a rain storm we did see a small amount of water seeping in through the logs over the fireplace. This was very minor, however, and didn't cause any damage to our property or to the room since it just dripped onto the stone fireplace.
The location of the property is great, right on Jackson Lake with great views of the mountains. There is a marina onsite where you can rent kayaks, canoes, and I think maybe motor boats too. We met up with some friends who were staying at the adjoining Signal Mountain Campground and found it very comfortable "hosting" them in the beautiful hotel lobby (which also has great mountain views) and in the Trapper Grill (the casual onsite dining option where we actually ended up eating all of our meals during our stay because it was so convenient). There is also a more formal restaurant which we didn't try.
We had a little trepidation in staying here because I had read a review that said that this was the height of 1970s luxury. After staying there, I think it is safe to say that the heyday of this lodge was probably in a different era (not necessarily the 70s though), but I think it is still a great place to vacation and would recommend it!
