Colter Bay Village was easy to find, the road and signs were well marked. We were pleased with the location too...we had considered Flagg Ranch and are glad we didn't stay there (too far north...almost can't see the Tetons).
We arrived in a downpour, cold and wet. Front desk were super friendly and efficient in getting us checked in and squared away in our cabin. Loved our log cabin! Woodsy, nice furnishings, wall heater (some cabins have wood stoves). In summer the heat probably isn't an issue, but since we arrived on a very cold wet day, we really appreciated the heater in the room.
Our cabin (212) was very spacious, and had 2 queens and 1 twin bed, a large sofa, desk, several chairs and generous closet space. The bathroom was OK, poor lighting and a shower insert that was dark. However, this was easy to overlook because of the charm of the cabin and its proximity to Colter Bay Village (walking distance to general store, launderette, restaurants and marina).
When we checked out, the staff went above and beyond in helping us resolve an unpleasant issue involving the Mural Room restaurant (at Jackson Lake Lodge). This staff is dedicated to customer service. Oh, and housekeeping overlooked our cabin one day...not sure what happened there. We got fresh towels but she didn't make up the room. No big deal to us, but it might bother some. Our daughter was a housekeeper at Yellowstone Old Faithful so we know how the stress of that job is, we are probably more forgiving in that regard!
If you decide to stay here, you might want to look into how your cabin is heated (if that's important to you). No microwave or fridge in our cabin, that was not an issue for us. Also, there was a barking dog in a nearby cabin...apparently the vacationers just left their dog inside all day (why take your dog on vacation then??). No wi-fi or internet at all inside the cabin, and even though you're supposed to be able to connect to wi-fi from the general store or launderette, we found that unreliable.
Overall we had a fantastic stay (with the backdrop of the Tetons it's almost impossible not to) and were so sorry to leave!
