Wooden cabins, rental boats, tour boats, restaurants, RV park
We stayed here in 2003 in RV and in September, 2018 in cabin. Cabins are old, however, have updated small restrooms with shower. The tour boat by lake into Grand Tetons was very nice. Cabins do not have wi-fi although it is available at check in area and adult gathering spot cabin. The cabins do not have coffee pots, so bring you own.

Great location but very rustic
We stayed in a large studio cabin with 3 beds and 1 bath. There was no in-room coffee. No phone, no TV. If you are a coffee-hound and you don't want to go stand in line at the general store in your pajamas for coffee, then bring your own. The cabin was rustic with a warning to keep the door closed to ensure bats and other critters don't get in. Beds were comfortable but not the newest bedding. Overall it was fine as a crash pad since the reason you're there is not to hang out in the cabin, but get outdoors hiking, fishing, biking, birding, etc. Keep in mind Coulter bay is a pretty large lodging area, I'm guessing there are a couple hundred cabins and campsites. Check-in and -out could take some time if you're trying to do that when everyone else is too.

Stayed 7 nights at a shared bathroom cabin — we had a large room with twin beds.
The room was very large, there were twin beds with a desk, chair plus closet. No TV, no WiFi. The shared women’s and men’s bath was similar to dorms. There was enough privacy that we were comfortable using it. A short distance down the hall — four motel type rooms in our building. We were next to the Guest Lounge building which provided many upholstered chairs, sofas, tables and chairs and restrooms. There was free WiFi and an ice machine there too. Would be happy to stay there again. There are various choices of type of rooms with price tags to match.

We stayed in a cabin at Colter Bay Village in early September. The cabin was fine, very clean, pretty comfortable with space for some unpacking. Bathroom and shower were great. But the real draw of this place was the location, right on Jackson Lake, stunning scenery, great facilities (hire boats, launderette, places to eat, a reasonable shop and deli, excellent ranger station and visitor centre) but not over the top, unlike parts of Yellowstone. We saw a pair of beavers swimming in the bay on our first night and had two wonderful days canoeing and walking in the area. The staff were all very friendly and helpful. Food at the restaurant was a bit pricey like all the parks, but you pay for the convenience. Worth visiting Jenny Lake for a walk up the Cascade Canyon and the various turn-offs, especially Oxbow Bend where we saw a family of otters in the river. I feel sure we'll be back to Grand Teton one day.

Nice roomy cabin in excellent location; a bit pricey but Recommend.
Apparently this review is too similar to my review of the Old Faithful cabins but the problem is they are very similar. So will try to mix it up hoping it will get posted. We stayed in a cabin with a private bath. It was a good size for 2 adults; bigger than Old Faithful cabins. But take note it did not have the following: a TV, fridge, microwave, coffee maker & hair dryer. It was clean and the bed was comfortable. It had no A/C but was not a problem since we stayed after Labor Day. It did have a heater and it worked fine. Without daily housekeeping (save $5/night) it cost $198/night after all taxes/fees. It was our most expensive lodging during our 2-week trip out west but worth it to stay in the park in an excellent location.
