My wife and I stayed here the week of Aug 17-24, 2019. Great place, great staff! Cabins are very nice, immaculate, efficient heater, comfy bed, good shower, etc. Nice view of the Tetons! Don’t worry about having no food service. You have a great gas stove/oven, microwave, and frig. And if you choose to go out as we often do, you have easy access to Hatchet resort for breakfast, dinner, etc., and you’re only a. 20 min ride to Jackson Lake Lodge or Signal Mountain, both of which have multiple places to eat with crazy good views of the mountains and Jenny or Jackson Lake. The food was great at each place. You are also close to the Teton wild buffalo herd just south of Moran jct on the road to Jackson Hole, and Jackson is an easy 30 mile drive, with lots of stuff there of course. On your way to and from Jackson check out the many overlooks. Black Pond area has had a bull moose on it but we missed it when we looked. The trip to the Yellowstone interior is a bit of drive but not bad- roads everywhere were in excellent shape, and the only hang up was some repaving near Colter Bay which resulted in a 5-20 min delay depending on when you arrived.
You’re also near the Snake and Buffalo Fork Rivers for fishing. On the Buffalo Valley road that you take to the Buffalo Fork River, and which is very close to the cabins, there was an osprey next with two fledglings and two parents. The female adult would go fishing and bring back a small fish, then feed it to the fledgling. Great viewing with a spotting scope or good telephoto camera lens.
Here’s some other highlights: we did one all day fly fishing float with Jackson Hole Anglers, floating the Snake below Jackson Hole. The fishing was great and we had a great guide (Jason) who I highly recommend. Saw many eagles that day. We also did a 1/2 day scenic float with Ewing-Barker from Deadman’s Bar to Moose Jct. Again, many eagles, a moose, a beaver, and just great scenery. Highly recommend that.
You have quick access to Teton Park and we recommend the Cascade canyon hike off Jenny Lake. Take the boat across the lake if you want to do that hike, otherwise you’re adding significant time walking around Jenny Lake (a nice hike in itself). We had seen moose there before but not this trip. Nice falls. Its a bit of a climb so be aware of that. Not difficult, but there’s some elevation.
If you have time, drive deep into Yellowstone to the Lamar Valley. More buffalo and lots of other great places for fishing, Slough and Soda Butte creek, Lamar river. People saw wolves the morning we were there, but we missed them. Go early in the morning or twilight is what everyone says. However, there is a wolf pack near the Teton buffalo herd as well, but we didn’t see any of them either. All in all, fantastic place with great central access to Teton, Yellowstone, Jackson Hole, etc.
