My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our week-long stay at Teton Shadows, and we really appreciated the nice touches provided by Jackson Lodging Co. Since we're recent retirees traveling without kids, and didn't need to access the bedroom loft, that wasn't an issue. (I'd have no trouble climbing the stairs, but my wife would have.) Everything else about the townhouse was wonderful. We especially liked the ultra comfy master bed (even though its height makes it a slight challenge to climb onto), the conveniently organized kitchen, the PC-friendly wi-fi, the washer & dryer right off the kitchen, and the modern flat-screen TV over the fireplace. The only quirky things I can think of were the roller shades that made me feel like I was hoisting a flag up a flagpole every time I would roll them up in the morning and down at night. (Note to designer:vertical blinds are so much easier as window treatments for sliding glass doors.) Anyway, the location about 7 miles north of town is perfect. It took no more than 10 minutes to drive into Jackson for shopping & dinners, and yet it's only 20 minutes or so from Jenny Lake in the Central Tetons. So access to everything in the Park is relatively easy from this starting point. We've been renting condos & houses for vacations for more than 15 years now, and nearly always enjoy them much more than hotels. As long as you don't mind tidying up after yourself, there's really no comparison. Places like Teton Shadows win out every time.
