Overview

About the property

Cabin, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible Bed(s), 1 Bath (Sleeps 4-6)

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.

What We Offer

• A simple, comfortable cedar log cabin with a master bedroom, a small bunk-bed room, a comfortable living room/dining room/kitchen area and a small bath with tub and shower

• Sleeps 6, including the fold-out couch in the living room

• 100% homelike atmosphere, not at all a hotel room or rental condo. A family retreat and favorite-place-in-the-world ambiance

• delicious well water, probably best-tasting water on the planet

• outside deck and outside picnic area with BBQ grill

• piano and keyboards, lots of good books, fireplace and firewood

What We Don’t Offer

• TV or reliable cell phone service (smart phones seem to work fine and there is a land line)

• Luxury accommodations. This is a small, simple cabin, 100% comfortable, but nothing fancy.

• Internet service is not working this year. Sorry! Smartphones are usually OK.

About Candra Day

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.

Why Candra Day chose Jackson Hole area

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.

What makes this cabin unique

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.

Guestbook comments from the manager

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.

Perfect for us!

  • 5 of 5

The cabin was absolutely as described; comfortable, rustic and secluded, but not at all out of the way. However, the description, and even the photo's of the scenery and view, do not do it justice...absolutely beautiful. I don't know how many times my wife and I just looked around and said "Wow" (with a giant smile). Our kids loved playing outside the cabin and exploring the surrounding mountain and meadow below.

We're planning another trip to Grand Teton in 2018 and this cabin is a big part of that. I hope that sums up just how happy we were with our stay.

Thank you so much for sharing this treasure.

Location Can't Be Beat!

  • 5 of 5

The location of this cabin can't be beat for touring the Tetons! Our family of 3 stayed here for 4 nights, using it as our home base for touring the area from Jackson Hole on the south to Jackson Lake on the north, and the proximity to the park's main entrance is nearly unbeatable. And while the cabin is remote, there are a few neighbors within close proximity, but you are really secluded due to topography and trees, so you *feel* as though you are truly alone. And what a view from the deck and yard area, where we hung out in the evenings and built a fire in the firepit, just amazing! Better yet, the stars at night took my breath away. The cabin itself is quaintly rustic, but from my perspective having owned an older cabin, that is where its charm shines for me. While the cabin is not new or updated, it is really quite comfortable (we used the cast iron stove for heat on chilly nights rather than turn on the baseboard heaters), it is clean enough for an older cabin (who doesn't have cobwebs in their corners in the middle of the woods? I have them and I live in the city!), and most importantly, the has what you need at the end of the day in the park... comfort, silence, relaxation. Had it been available for a longer period of time during our trip, we would have stayed on longer. The bed was comfortable (though my 9-year old daughter was too scared to sleep in the bunk room, but that's not a criticism, that's just her), so we also used the pull-out couch which was a bonus because otherwise she would have been in with us. We used the grill for dinners and the stovetop and toaster-oven for breakfast. There are charming touches of the builder/owner in every corner, which were so much fun to see (my favorites were the star finder and the owners 15-plus-year's-worth-of-summer's handwritten weather log). We brought games along with us, but there were plenty in the cabin, as well as stacks and stacks of books, so my goal of a "no technology" week was met successfully! I'm thankful to Candra for sharing her family's cabin with us, I simply love its story!

A Cabin to get away from it all or give a central base for exploring from

  • 5 of 5

We arrived at night, so the view upon waking amazed us. This cabin is a true gem for someone looking to get away and enjoy beauty and solitude. the cabin is full of character and charm- lots of books, fun nature artifacts and historical items to enjoy along with fantastic views. It is a 16 mile drive to town that passes bison and elk, and yet has park entry half that distance away- a great location to explore from. It has simple decor, a patio and firepit. The cabin has basic necessities and lots of information within the cabin to encourage local exploring. An easy place to hangout and relax, wander local woods and dirt roads and enjoy nature from. If you truly want to get away from it all, yet have running water and electricity this is a great place to do it. We were a party of four so the bunkbed and double were just right for our needs.

Awesome rustic vacation home

  • 5 of 5

We loved every minute of our stay in this cabin. It's rustic charm delighted and rejuvenated us. All of our needs were met. The fire pit was perfect, the view spectacular, the welcome basket, delightful. The cabin's placement between Jackson and Yellowstone was perfect; the view of Cathedral Group sublime. If you're wanting a rustic get-away, this is your place!

Love, Love, Loved it!!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 4 included 2 boys ages 9 and 13, visited over Memorial Day weekend. It was exactly what we pictured and the views and solitude was more than we could have hoped for! Loved the rustic feel of this ole' cabin. My favorite spot was to sit in the rocking chair in front of the picture window, with view of the woods and the Tetons. Absolutely spectacular view just across the dirt road as well. There is a clearing across the road behind the cabin. A short 2 min hike up the hill with some camping chairs--A-mazing!!! Thank you for sharing your little piece of heaven with us Candra! ~ The Baldwin's.
