About Candra Day
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.
Why Candra Day chose Kelly
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.
What makes this Cabin unique
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.

The cabin is in a great location with a beautiful view but rundown is a far better description of this property. First we were greeted with a very bad odor when we arrived. We had to buy scented candles to cover it up. Then after my first shower the tub was clogged so we used a dirty plunger to get the water down and pulled three handfuls of hair out of the drain so we could shower. The bed was so worn out that my husband never did have a good nights rest and even slept in a chair a couple times. They could at least provide a decent place to sleep for the price they charge to rent this place. We felt the electrical system in this cabin is unsafe and would never pass an inspection. The lights and appliances are all plugged into a series of ungrounded extension cords and then into an outlet splitter which then plugs into the receptacle. I couldn’t even use my hair dryer because the circuit was so overloaded. There was also an empty smoke alarm mounting plate on the wall near the wood stove with no smoke alarm to be found...
We expected rustic but this place is just plain rundown. It needs some serious repairs and upgrades. “Rustic” should not mean unsafe. We never did contact the manager because we knew that we most likely would not receive a refund and would have to rent another place for the remainder of our vacation. In the end we decided to cut our vacation short and left a night early.
We have stayed in many VRBO rentals throughout the years and this is the first time we have been disappointed. After staying here, I have to agree that these rental units should be more regulated to ensure the safety of the people renting them.
I'm very sorry that you were disappointed. It's true that the tub drain needed repair (it was the end of a busy summer) and has been repaired now. I have never experienced a bad odor at the cabin -- I clean it all the time -- but I'm sorry that happened. I don't know what that could have been. Every once in a while we have a guest who is not comfortable with the cabin -- In over five years of VRBO guests, with more than 200 different families visiting, we have only received two bad reviews, including this one. Most people really love the cabin. I believe it is a matter of taste. This is a 50-year-old, traditional log cabin in the Tetons. It is not AT ALL like a condo. It is a family-built and family-loved place, with all kinds of odd and idiosyncratic improvisations. And yes it has extension cords connecting lamps. I sleep in the bed often and find it very comfortable -- it is quite new and rather firm -- so I'm not sure what to say about that issue. I'm sorry that this guest did not contact me because I would have been glad to provide a refund. For people considering our cabin, please expect a cosy, old-fashioned cedar cabin.
Wonderful Rustic Cabin
What a wonderful getaway! Minutes from the Moose entrance to Teton Park. Unbelievable views from the property. The cabin is adorable! Perfectly functional and a wonderful escape from the crowds at the park.
Thank you for this lovely review. And thank you very much for leaving the cabin so clean and tidy. We appreciate it!
Great little cabin for Grand Teton getaway
My wife and I used this cute little cabin as our base to explore GTNP and Jackson. It was perfect for what we were looking for! We enjoyed exploring and hiking the park during the day, and relaxing by the fire at the cabin at night.
Candra was great to deal with and we had no issues getting checked in.
Thank you! So glad you enjoyed your stay.
Relaxing and beautiful
We spent 5 nights in this little cabin after spending 2 weeks in Glacier National Park and Yellowstone before flying home out of Jackson Hole. It was the perfect end to our trip. We relaxed and enjoyed our down time among the aspens. I highly recommend it as long as you're not looking for luxury. This is truly a mountain cabin. It is well equipped, but rustic. We enjoyed every minute!
P.S. You don't need bear spray, they have plenty :)
Thank you very kindly for this review and so happy to know you enjoyed yourself. And yes .. our cabin is not a luxury condo by any means. It's a traditional mountain log cabin, simple and very family-feeling. Thanks for mentioning this. We want our visitors to know what to expect. Come back soon!
Was blown away with the location and view of the Tetons. Its about 15 minutes to South Jenny Lake. The cabin was perfect for our family and the kids loved the bunk beds. I just wish we could have stayed longer.
This simple cabin with a beautiful view. We stayed for 6 days and we had a wonderful stay. The big window we sat in front of to start and end our day with the gorgeous view and the cozy chairs. The master bed is small but we made the best of it. The kitchen was efficient and we enjoyed the fire pit. It was en easy drive to the park as well as town or the village. The peace and quiet was wonderful.
