“Great Experience”
Reviewed February 16, 2007

My ski group rents a house or condo somewhere in "ski usa" or "ski canada" every year. This year we had the great pleasure of staying at the Teton Teepee. What a laid back, comfortable and cozy stay! The personnel are terrific, attending to every need and treated us like old friends. The food was very good and always more than we could eat. We enjoyed the concept of family dining and common area lounging, meeting people from lots of different places who were all there for one thing: skiing.
A tremendous place for families, couples, singles....everyone!

My husband and I go on ski-fari every other year--Hop in our car, and try to find good snow. We rarely make lodging arrangements in advance--We use the internet while on the road to locate places, then stop in to visit to see if it's what we want. Sometimes you spend a night somewhere you wish you hadn't--but sometimes you find a little gem--Teton Teepee Lodge is one of those gems. The whole place looks like something out of the heyday of the swingin' '70's--sunken circular firepit, bar with dance floor, lots of little nooks with squooshy couches to snuggle with your honey--it also sports an outdoor hot tub, TV room and game room. You can imagine Roger Moore hanging out here in some vintage Bond film. The whole place is teepee shaped (hence the name), with private double rooms radiating out all the way around. A fabulous breakfast is served family style at 8 in the morning (put out a sign if you don't want to be woken up), and the hostesses remind you why people in Wyoming (some vice presidents excluded) have a reputation for old school hospitality. The rooms themselves are kind of spartan, but very clean, all with private baths. There are also separate boys & girls bunks downstairs--perfect for a group with kids, or college students looking for a cheap sleep. This isn't some self-conscious, so-hip-it-hurts place--it's the real deal, and close enough to Jackson Hole and Grand Targhee ski areas that you could do both in one trip and never change hotels.

  • Liked — The vibe
  • Disliked — rooms could use some flavor
  • Tips/Secrets — stay here to ski both Jackson Hole AND Grand Targhee--much less expensive than town of Jackson accomodations
  • Stayed December 2006, traveled as a couple

One of the best vacation I ever had in my life was spent at the Teton Tepee. We where treated like Kings and Queens. The most fabulous food, the best people in the owrld took care of us. They shuttled us to the mountains everyday. We even headed out to Yellowstone to snowmobile out to Old Faithful. If you want to be papered and ski in the best powder-go Teton Tepee!!! I still have the fondest memories and I was there in 1985!!!

The Teton Teepee is a small lodge a few miles from Grand Targhee ski resort. We ski in the West every winter and this is by far the best place we have ever stayed. Breakfasts and dinners are included and are excellent. There is a hot tub , pingpong, pool, table shuffleboard, plentiful board games, large screen TV. Shuttles to the slopes provided - and Grand Targhee is uncrowded and has some of the best snow in the US!
