Made our trip even more perfect
I was there photographing a wedding, and I’m still in awe of how majestic this place is. Cottages are large, cozy, spacious and comfortable. Dining options were perfect you MUST try the trout chowder; so delicious. We watched sunset over the Tetons with a glass of wine and sunrise over the damn 5 minutes from the resort. Activities are a must weather it’s a hike or kayaking on the lake. You can’t go wrong. ~ Kathy Thomas Photography

Too much for too little
I booked 1 night at the lodge because of my husbands birthday together with our 2 kids. Ofcourse the view is what you pay for! But the beds were pretty small, the interior of our room dated, a small bathroom. It was just too expensive, no luxury in return, just the awesome view.

Sure, you're in the park, but the lodgings are 2-star max level, a little smelly/musty, and really, the town with lots of places to stay is very close. I was expecting a really extraordinary property. It was meh.

Every moment to be treasured
Staying at the Jackson Lake Lodge, particularly in a mountain view “cabin”, was unforgettable. This is technically not a cabin, it’s a building separate from the lodge, containing several rooms. Our room had a lovely picture window, and had a door leading out to a small patio with two chairs, looking onto a meadow with the mountains beyond.
The room itself wasn’t extraordinary, but it was clean, and pleasant. For the money, it is more about the view and location, which was fine with us.
The food options were diverse. The famous Mural Room, with a beautiful view and a relaxing atmosphere, was a bit overpriced for food which wasn’t up to the prices charged. The Pioneer Grill is a fast option, but the food is GREAT. I ADORED the Blue Heron Lounge, with great, fun snacking foods, wonderful for a drink and the view.
The gift shops were well merchandised and have a LOT to tempt you.
THE LOBBY AND THE WALL OF WINDOWS FACING THE MOUNTAINS. NO WORDS.
M husband and I took a 2 hour trail ride, which we THOROUGHLY LOVED, even though I couldn’t feel my legs when I dismounted. We hung around the horses a lot, an added joy of the Lodge. The staff is so welcoming at the corral.
While Jenny Lake Lodge is highly touted, the general area around Jenny Lake is so busy.The benefit of the Jackson Lake Lodge is that it isn’t! We went in September, which had its share of adult tour groups, but still didn’t feel terribly crowded.
I highly recommend this delightful place.

The Grand Tetons spoke to my soul
The view out of this lodge is arguably life changing. There’s plenty of food options to match the view. Lots of activities around for adults and kids. Visit the concierge to get all the info so you don’t miss out. Tip - you will have to pay park entrance fee to get to the lodge. Also, you might get an Uber/Lyft from the airport but you sure won’t get one back. Either see about the shuttle or rent a car. I’d rent a car if at all possible.
