Rustic & Mostly comfortable
Posted Aug 7, 2016
We don't need a lot when we travel. We spent the days hiking in the Tetons. What matters most is that we have a clean place to shower and sleep each night. The cabins at Colter Bay were perfectly satisfactory in this regard. They're a bit rustic. They are log cabins that were moved to Colter Bay in the mid 1950's, and plumbing and electricity were added. The floors are not what you would expect in a motel today....They are 1950's linoleum tile, which is kind of cold on your feet. It's within easy walking distance of Jackson Lake and the marina. The restaurant dining room has good food, but it's expensive (no surprise, since it's the only regular restaurant around). There's a cafeteria that's more reasonable. We bought breakfast and lunch at the general store, which made the expense reasonable, especially for food to take hiking. There's wildlife in the area, as well. We saw a bald eagle near the marina, and had to cut an evening walk along the lake short because there was a bear a bit too close to the trail for safe passage.
