We stayed 5 nights in cabin 2, returned home today and my husband is ready to plan another trip there. The cabins are in a beautiful private setting. Our cabin had a large stone patio and stone steps down to the lake. The loft was a huge bonus space, we used it to watch movies and play card games with the teenagers every night. The loft ceiling is pretty low and if you have small kids , the steps up were pretty steep. The kitchen was equipped with everything you could need, washer and dryer, there was even a gas grill on the patio. There was a table full of maps and brochures for us which was nice.
It was about a 20 minute drive into Jackson, but like the rest of the reviewers mentioned...loads of wildlife along the road and it is a very easy drive - no steep mountain roads. There is a a short gravel road to the cabins, we were in a minivan and it was fine. Most of it was along the antelope flats. We hiked in the Jenny Lake area several times and I think it was actually quicker for us to get there using back roads than what it would have been if we stayed in Jackson.
We were originally booked to stay in the cottage across the lake, but after seeing the cabins decided we would rather stay in a cabin. Jane Budge was very nice about letting us switch. The cottage was fine and maybe even bigger than the cabin with a huge usable front yard. Our tastes just run towards cabins with lofts and stone, while other people will appreciate the claw foot tub, etc. of the cottage.
We made our reservation just a few weeks before our trip. I honestly believe that if the Budges had more information on the internet (prices, availability calendar, etc.) that it would have been much more difficult getting a reservation.
