|Minimum Stay||3 nights|
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.
This cabin kicked off the first three of seven nights within the Tetons and Yellowstone. It surpassed our expectations in every way. Immerse yourself in the experience. Light a fire outside. Read and glance over the novels the owners keep in the cabin. Get up at dawn to view wildlife around the Mormon District. Take the scenic float trour down the snake river. Pour a glass of scotch, pull up a chair, relax and take in the view of what might be one of the most beautiful places in the country. We can't wait to come back.
Tip: There is no cell service. Make sure you have all the information you need to access the property when staying there before you arrive.
Location nice, but decided not to stay there due to the bad odor and unkept conditions of the cabin.
The cabin needs renovated. Appliances, furnishings etc., need replaced They even had a cooler to store dry food due to mice and holes in the walls. (Which still had old food in it when i arrived.)
Very disappointed and robbed!
We enjoyed using this lovely little cabin as our home base for our Teton adventures.
Quiet and beautiful settings in the trees with a mountain view.
We stayed for three nights. Nothing fancy, beautiful location and great place to stay. Our three kids loved staying here and playing around on the property. I appreciate Candra and family renting out and sharing their family cabin with outside guests.
This is the best spot in the area, everything you want quiet and serene. The cabin has everything you need for your stay, you simply shop like you would at home they have all the basics. This is my second year their and will be booking for next year as well. It really feels like home...oh yeah and the view is spectacular!
We loved it here. The cabin is simple and comfortable. It's one of those places you want to tell everyone about, on the other hand you want to keep it your secret. It feels remote, but with neighbors a comfortable distance. It is in a great location. Candra was very helpful, and provided us with excellent instructions. We spent time playing cards, taking pictures, making meals, reading books, painting, and watching wildlife. If you like seeing wildlife in the back yard, then you'll enjoy this. The large window brings the outside in. We tend not to repeat visits with so much of the world to see, but if we were to visit WY again, this would be where we'd choose to stay. The cabin has the feel of a well loved private retreat, not a rental. It has great energy.

The town of Jackson offers Western fun, great dining and shopping, art galleries and performances, entertainment for children. Jackson is an example of a community dedicated to conservation -- and there's lots to learn about what's being done to assure the future will be as good or better than the present.
