Maybe Jackson would’ve suited us better.

We booked the Headwaters only a month out, so not a lot of choices. I haven’t been to the Grand Tetons as an adult, so unfamiliar with locations of hotels vs. park sites. The Headwaters is actually outside the Grand Teton park and closer to the Yellowstone south border. 1:15 drive to Jackson and at least 30 minutes to Jenny Lake and most of the sites we wanted to see. In September, it’s dark by 8pm, so without TV, Internet, and cell phone service, you might as well drive to Jackson for dinner, which we did one night, and had to personally read the second night. In hindsight, I would have paid the same costs in Jackson, but at least had some amenities available. The facilities are like a 2 star hotel, but with a view. The porch had 2 rocking chairs and a very comfortable mattress. There’s only a small round table for 2 inside so when we ordered food from the restaurant, (takeout only) we had to eat inside our room.

We had a great visit this spot is in between Yellowstone and Tetons, it's a great spot to hit both parks. There's a nice trail to river, a store, gas station and visitor center. The laundry room was clean with enough washers and dryers to get things done.

We enjoyed a couple of days here in one of the cabins. Fantastic location to Tetons and Yellowstone. Clean, comfortable and very quiet. Once our hands stopped shaking from internet/cell phone withdrawal, we enjoyed sitting, reading, talking, looking at the stars, and some nice quiet time. This was a great place to stay.

One night stay in premium cabin

Stayed here on our way up to YNP as it’s literally 5 minutes from south entrance of YNP if that. We stayed in a premium cabin that sits on a bluff overlooking a nice wooded valley that you’d think be great wildlife viewing but the animals did not cooperate. However it was a very nice sunset and also nice to eat dinner on our patio as restaurant was take out only. However, they advertise “sitting on the banks of the snake river”. That is a stretch in my opinion. For premium cabin you’d think maybe at least view of river. Nope. It was nearly 4 minute walk to river from cabin 315. Not sure any cabins had view of river off in the distance. So for the cost of premium cabin running north of $350 no river view. Each cabin is a duplex and our neighbors had no idea how to talk softly on the porch. If they were not out then it was ideal. Cabin was nice and warm on the chilly late August night so no worries there. Next morning they do contact less checkout. Just call office and tell them your leaving. If driving through to YNP its one of few options but I’d likely stay here again.

Quiet cabins in Tetons

These cabins are affordable alternatives to staying at one of the lakes nearby. The major sights are 30-60 minutes away, but you can hike in the nearby mountains. We stayed one night because the prices at Yellowstone Lake were outrageous during peak season. The cabins are rather nice, more modern and comfortable than the cabins at Colter Bay.
