We stayed at Jackson Lake Lodge in mid July for 2 nights. Our second floor Mt. view room was located in the 500 block. It was far enough away from the main lodge to avoid the crowds of people trying to catch the sunset on the lodge’s back deck. The lodge is within walking distance – IF you have the time..we mostly drove b/c we were always heading out- The cabin style room was more than adequate for our needs- It had electricity- water- and a private bathroom. The room was clean but “cabiny” if you are expecting a hotel room you will be disappointed. This is a cabin- imagine luxury camping.
Running water- 2 sinks and flushing toilet all inside your room- you even have electricity to charge your camera batteries. The bed was surprisingly comfortable-and the room was really clean. The screens had a few small holes- which let some flying guys in…but it was no big deal. The bathroom was clean but showing it’s age- the shower head in our particular room was terrible- it shot water out of the tub. But we never mentioned it to the front desk- so they didn’t have the chance to fix it.
The second floor room was great for us. Second floor though means you are carrying all your stuff up the stairs. That was fine for us…but be sure you are expecting that. There is no fridge- so have your cooler ready.
There is also no TV-or AC but we knew that and were thankful. Our balcony overlooked Willow Flats and the short trail around the flats. Though our view of the flats was slightly obstructed we still were still able to see sand hill cranes and a moose family moving through the area. WE also heard coyotes at night- what a treat! The Tetons of course, rose majestically above the trees and were an amazing sight no matter how many times we looked out the window. The trail near the cabin was closed due to bear activity while we were there; however, we never saw the bear .
When we entered the room it was HOT- we arrived in the early evening and the room had heated up b/c the temperature that day had approached 90. However, opening the windows (don’t forget the bathroom window) and propping the front door for a while to get some cross ventilation cooled the cabin to a comfortable temperature by bed time and by the middle of the night it was cold enough to need another blanket.
I wish we had more time to stay here and enjoy the area. We had many activities planned in Jackson and found this to be too far of a drive to be able to do our activities and still return in time to just relax on the balcony.
We ate once at the Pioneer Grill for breakfast and it was fine- it wasn’t fast- but it wasn’t s-l-o-w either.
Our only complaint was that we happened to be near some really loud people who didn’t seem to appreciate the idea of a peaceful place. Going on 8:00pm and the kids were outside screaming- that is not the properties fault- but perhaps this review will help those people find a place closer to a mini golf or go cart facilities so they can enjoy the kind of vacation they might be looking for. The front desk did ask them to quiet down once…and that helped for about 20 minutes.
Our 3 kids LOVED this place- (6,9,12) in fact they say it was there favorite place of the entire trip. But our kids really love and respect nature. They never asked for their TV or their i-anything for the entire week were in Yellowstone/ Grand Teton. If we ever return we will stay again- and plan more time for just sitting and enjoying the view!!!
