We had a large cabin (833) - perfect for my granddaughter and I. Very quiet, comfortable beds, and lots of room.

We stayed in a one bedroom cabin. The bathroom was small and clean.
The cabin was very romantic, good beds. the staff was very helpfull.
If you have a cabin near the office you have wifi. But you can also go in the office to use internet on your computer.
There is a nice restaurant in Colter Bay Village.
We liked our stay.

We stayed in a 2 bedroom cabin with our 3 small children and 2 golden retrievers and had a wonderful time! The cabins are rustic but very clean along with very comfortable beds. The staff was extremely friendly and knowledgeable. The atmosphere is very relaxed yet there are plenty of activities to fill your day. We stayed at Colter Bay at the end of a 2 week road trip throughout the west and it was our favorite stop.

Booked a two bedroom cabin sight unseen. We were trying to find a reasonable price in the Tetons or Jackson Hole areas, but not much luck. I came upon Colter Bay Village and they were offering what I thought was a pretty good price for a two bedroom cabin, $199. You can't touch that price in the Jackson Hole or Teton area for anything with positive ratings. So I thought I'd try it. The cabins are historic. They were all brought into the resort about 100 years ago and then were brought up to date through the years. They are charming, rustic, not fancy, but had nice decor and adequate furnishings. I just loved it. The location is right on Jackson Lake in the middle of the Tetons. Breathtaking views, great hiking trails, great restaurants, general store and a really neat Native American restaurant. Highly recommend it and will definitely go back. Take some bug spray though - they sell a great Eucalyptus and citrus one at the General store. Worked well. It was my birthday an we had a wonderful fine dining experience in the Ranch House. No Internet or TV though, but who needs it in that location!

Colter Bay Village is about 30 miles from the Jackson Hole Airport. We stayed here two nights after camping in Yellowstone. It was like the lap of luxury after camping. As a previous reviewer wrote, "if you don't already know you have to understand that everything in Grand Teton and Yellowstone National Parks are somewhat overpriced compared to what you get in most other parts of the country." These were great compared to the cabins in Canyon Village we visited in Yellowstone. Our duplex log cabin in Colter Bay more than acceptable, but don't expect lots of amenities + there were soap/shampoo dispensers in the bathroom. Our cabin had two double and one twin bed in a single room. We could hear our duplex neighbors occasionally though not loudly, and you could also hear when the neighbor's had the shower running. The bathroom is small, but it served its function, and its not like you are going to spend a lot of time inside your cabin while visiting the Grand Tetons or Yellowstone. The mattresses were fine, the room very clean, and no mosquitoes to speak of; however if you leave your door open, even for a short time, in the evening or morning you can expect the visitors to come flying in. Perhaps previous mosquito issues were b/c of early or late day cleanings.
The staff was very friendly and helpful. We got ice from the ice machine to fill up our small cooler. There was Wifi at the office (or from your car parked outside). Note that currently cell phone signals are spotty down by the lake but better in the cabin area.

The grocery provided the necessities - wonderful homemade cinnamon buns (caramel-cinnamon at the gas station - yum). There are two restaurants on site - one sit down and one cafeteria style. We only used the cafeteria style one at which the food was pretty good. For great pizza and ice cream head up to Leek's marina a few miles up the road - awesome crust.

The visitor center in Colter Village is OK - nothing compared to the new one in Moose. We did the morning buffet cruise to Elk Island. The food was very good and the boat ride was fun and educational. Be aware the am is mosquito time, but the staff had plenty of Off on hand. We also did the GTLC sunset float trip. The was very relaxing, and Steve was a good experienced guide. Although now bears or wolves, we did see beaver, eagles, herons, osprey, elk and even a full rack bull moose at the end. Next time we would do the 645a for maybe a little more wildlife and better lighting on the Tetons. Make sure you do the hike to hidden falls and inspiration point, but there are also good hike around String Lake and Leigh Lake

We also stayed two nights at the beginning of our trip in the Coulter Bay Village Tent Cabins. This is basically two wooden walls and two canvas walls. The wooden walls are in X shape with another cabin on your back or front side (hope your neighbors are considerate). Essentially this is fancy camping. There are two bunks on each wall with thin but adequate mattresses. The community bathrooms were fine and the community showers very clean. Note that as a visitor to Colter Bay Village you can use the pool at Jackson Lake Lodge - free hot water showers as long as you are not right after another group who used up all the hot water ;-o. Our experience was fine the first two night, but we are glad we did not stay here on the way out as it was the beginning of Pioneer Days and there were some rowdy folks staying in the tent cabins. if you sleep lightly. I would recommend earplugs regardless.

We stayed in a cabin with one double and a single - it was the only reasonably priced accommodation in the park that we could find on a July weekend. There are quite a few cabins here and some have better locations that others - make sure you ask for a quiet one up the back. Also, because the cabins were sourced from different locations they are all different sizes - we had a massive one, although the bathroom was a bit on the tidgy side. Can't understand what people are complaining about - I certainly didn't go on holiday to GTNP to complain about the lino in the cabins - get a grip!

We went on a float trip with GTLC - we did the 6.45 am one - early but you have the advantage that no one else is out. It also leaves from much further up the Snake River at Moran Junction and you get out of the raft at Deadman's Bar (where the 10 am people get in - this place was very busy). It also means that you get views of the Tetons from far away and then relatively close. Apparently this is a good section for wolf and bear sighting - but we didn't see any. Sam (a Jackson Lake local) was an excellent guide. Be careful of trip that don't float 100% within the park.
