Our cabin has a spectacular location, directly in front of the Grand Teton peaks. A rare National Park in-holding, the cabin is on the border of Grand Teton National Park and Bridger-Teton National Forest, looking out over the Park and offering superb hiking out the back door.
The cabin is located on Shadow Mountain, so named because the Grand Teton casts its shadow on this exact spot when the sun sets behind the mountains. This is the place for viewing gorgeous mountain sunsets, each one unlike any other, with rays of light beaming off the peaks for just a few moments before the starlit evening descends.
The cabin is set in a 1-acre open meadow filled with wildflowers in the summer. It is away from other homes, but it doesn’t feel remote. It is a quick 10-minute drive – or a lovely bike ride – down to the National Park entrance and Dornan’s grocery store, restaurants and legendary wine shop. There is a warm springs nearby where children chase tiny minnows with their nets while their parents practice kayak rolls. Herds of bisonand antelope roam on the flats below the cabin. It is a 25-minute drive to the town of Jackson, where there is much to explore and enjoy. It is about a one-hour leisurely drive to the south entrance of Yellowstone National Park, where we recommend you plan to spend the night to allow enough time to explore the world’s first national park.
Our cabin is a restful and refreshing oasis set in “America’s Serengeti”. Families often come back to the cabin year after year, making it their second home in the Tetons.

This has been our family retreat since we built the cabin almost 40 years ago. The 4th generation is now in the process of falling in love with the cabin and the Tetons. The contact person has lived in Jackson for more than 20 years and is happy to provide any assistance, including local tips.
Our family came to Jackson every summer to climb in the mountains. Father (grandfather, great-grandfather) was an avid mountaineer. We were very fortunate to be in Jackson when this unique parcel became available: an old-time ranching family decided to sell a few acres at the edge of the National Park. A handful of parcels were snapped up in a matter of days -- including our purchase! -- and the Park bought the rest.
The first dramatic feature you'll notice about our cabin is the views of the valley floor and of the Grand Tetons directly in front of you. The next thing you'll notice is the quiet. And the next thing you'll notice is a feeling of peace and delight. Works for everyone, all ages.
Thank you for sharing your wonderful cabin in the Tetons with us. Everything was just perfect. We enjoyed the bowl of goodies, especially the cheese. That was so thoughtful!
Your cabin was beautiful in its simplicity. It was very welcoming and very comfortable.
The cabin is in a peaceful & secluded wooded area with gorgeous views of the Tetons. We even saw a rainbow over the mountains. It is a rustic cabin, just exactly as described, with pleasant seating in the living room and a piano for fun sing alongs. The campfire was awesome each night and the seating area was great for afternoon reading in the sun. We even slung a hammock between 2 trees for naps. The kitchen was small, but easy to use and stocked well with equipment. We made and enjoyed many lovely meals during our stay. The kids loved the bunk bed in their cute little room. From here we went hiking in the whole southern part of the Teton National Park. If you are a light sleeper like me, then I would recommend bringing your own pillows, as the ones provided are old and quite flat. It was a lovely cabin and just as advertised. On a side note (that the owners are not responsible for) - Be advised the dirt road to the cabin is quite deeply rutted on the sides and high in the center. this caused us some trouble in our minivan, as we scraped the bottom when fully loaded. The edge of the road is overgrown with roses and other plants, so when we tried to bridge the high center and edge of the road to prevent damage to the underside of the car, we scraped up the side of the car instead. Just don't bring low clearance or a heavily laden mini-van and you will be fine!
