This lodge and the surrounding area is one of my favorite places in the west. This trip I only had time for lunch, so a buffalo burger was a must. A short walk across the road and there are some neat easy to walk trails which take you down to the river. Make sure you check out the cabins for your next overnight stay.

Rustic elegance framed by the majestic Grand Tetons

Jenny Lake Lodge combines luxurious, yet rustic accommodations and gourmet dining in a peaceful setting beneath the overpowering presence of the Cathedral Group of Grand Teton mountain peaks in the southern region of the national park. The location is just a short walk among the pine trees to Jenny, String and Leigh Lakes. They recommend carrying bear spray if you take that walk. Though I have never encountered a bear there, deer frequent the Lodge grounds daily, and I did come upon an elk herd early one morning hiking beyond one of the lakes. My wife and I have stayed several times, for several days plus a week-long anniversary trip. We fly into Jackson Hole Airport, located within the national park, and little more than a 20 minute drive to the Lodge with a rental car. The cabins are cozy and comfortable with plush bedding and all the other amenities . Friendly, attentive staff refresh the ice in the afternoon and perform turn down service during dinner, which is a five course feast each evening. Several main entrees are offered that cover the meat, fish, poultry and vegetarian options. A couple of my favorites were bison rib-eye steak and venison osso buco. The included horseback riding provides a unique experience covering meadows, forest, and along the lake with an informative guide. Of the activities, we enjoyed most the astronomer on clear nights, park ranger show and tell,complimentary bicycles, evening guitar player, and the historian who recounted the colorful history of the Lodge and its founder. Nestled in the woods, the Lodge escapes the crowds that descend on other parts of the Park during the summer. The Lodge is a welcome retreat after a day of touring the Park, or a restful spot to read a book and absorb the grandeur of the iconic mountain range.

This beautiful lodge has beautiful view of the Tetons mountains. The accommodation cottages can be improved' for this high prices one would look for higher level of facilities un the room. Great breakfast choice and very Hugh quality The diamond in the crown un the Chef's dinner, simply excellent, both food quality and Sevice. Its location in the park center and the view from any window are great.

Some thoughts on Jenny Lake Lodge: • Accommodations are quaint – artfully appointed and harkenning back to a more civil era • The lodge is comfortable and welcoming. • Staff is totally awesome. They care well for the visitors and seem to enjoy their work. • Wifi is strong and works w/o hassle – this was not expected given the remote setting. • Be advised - Jenny Lake Lodge is NOT on Jenny Lake. Indeed, it is not on any lake. It is located in a thicket on a wooded plain with an obstructed view (tall trees) of the Tetons. The name of this venue is sorta bogus.

Best National Park Lodge We've Ever Stayed At!

We found that the staff from top to bottom were all extremely genuine and passionate hospitality professionals. Beyond that though, Rachel and her team all seem to really love the lodge and the park, and the people they share it with. This is something we rarely experience in the National Park lodges and it made our experience very personal and special. The food in the restaurant was absolutely the best we've had in any National Park over many years of visiting different park lodges. We liked it so much we reserved another table the very next night. It was extremely refined and dialed into the local theme, while still staying approachable. That isn't easy to do! The chef and wait staff absolutely equal and even surpass many of the multi Michelin Star restaurants we've eaten at. We will most certainly come back and recommend the Jenny Lake Lodge to our friends and family. Thank you all so much!
