Very nice cabin. Outside is old and historic, inside is new and clean. Large size room and good size modern bath. It appears to have been refinished fairly recently. Area is wooded and very quiet. Location is good for exploring Grand Teton national park. Restaurant, general store and National Park visitor center very close and convenient. The room does not have fridge, microwave, coffee maker, hair dryer, Wi-Fi or TV (if you need a TV you are in the wrong place anyway). We enjoyed our stay and would certainly stay there again.

Empty Bay and Unfair Treatment

Colter Bay doesn't exist any more. The body of water called Colter Bay was created in 1907, when the Bureau of Reclamation dammed the Snake River to make Jackson Lake larger. The government's justification for the dam was creation of a reservoir for potato farmers in Idaho. Now that drought and climate change have affected irrigation, the government is releasing so much water through the Snake River dam that Colter Bay is completely dry. Grass is growing around the formerly floating docks that sit on the dry bottom. I booked a trail ride at Jackson Lake Lodge, which is owned by the same people who own Colter Bay. They left me a voice mail a day before saying that the schedule for the ride was now earlier, and that if did not show up on time I would not be accepted. There is no cell service at Colter Bay, which the Jackson Lake Lodge people must have known, since they own both properties. I didn't get the voice mail until I was back home. GTLC does not give a damn about the customers who stay there. They are trying to run out the term of their concession with the National Park Service while losing as little money as possible. Don't go.

Clean and functional

Nice and cozy, clean with plenty of room. We had a 2 room. Good bathroom. Nothing fancy, just right. Adequate parking. Even though it is at the north end of the park it doesn’t talk long to get to the major sights. Would do it again.

This is probably 45 min from Jackson but in the heart of the park. The cabin we stayed in (622) had a full and twin bed but there was lots of room. We had 2 dressers and a desk. The room had it's own bathroom (shower only). There was a place to get ice by the cabins office. It was nice to be in village with stores, 2 restaurants, and the visitor center. You are only a few miles from Jackson Lake Lodge which has more restaurants, activities, and stores.

I was not very happy with the accommodations at Colter Bay cabins. The pictures on the national parks reservation site do not depict the current condition of the cabins. The bathroom was new and very nice. The beds were squeaky and old. Yellow painted headboard on logs!The bedding is not the same as in the pictures. No rug on the floor. The window curtains were mismatched, one was shorter than the other and short for the windows. Some were inside out, the hem facing inside instead of toward the window. Not all the windows worked. I read some of these reviews before I wrote my own. People were complaining about no coffee pot, no microwave, no air conditioner, double beds. That is stated directly on their description. So I don't believe anyone can complain about that. Would it be a nice amenity in the future, absolutely! Overall, I was not happy. I felt it was expensive for the type of facility we got. It was $340. I tried to post pictures of how it looks like now, but I'm not sure they're going to show up.
