One of a Kind Cabin Located Within Grand Teton National Park

Bedrooms 2
Property type cabin
Minimum Stay 3 nights


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 Kelly

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.

Roughing it, just enough

  • 5 of 5

Centrally located to so much of the Grand Teton and Jackson Hole area. Great place to untether the kids from tech! Cozy, eclectic, and rustic cabin. We came down from Yellowstone and peeled away crowds and traffic. Excellent wildlife viewing every day, some

right on the property.

Rustic, peaceful getaway!

  • 5 of 5

This cabin is the BOMB! Yes, rustic. Yes, old - but I call it "vintage"! Eclectic decor, interesting artwork, sooo much character in this amazing hideaway. The views are to die for, wildflowers for days, chirpy birds, chipmunks (and flies, lotsa flies! We need a fly swatter!)... It is tucked away in the woods, just one cabin on a dirt road with only two other houses. Unfortunately, one house is close enough to hear the loud partying just up the road - - I felt slightly nervous being there alone and not knowing who the characters at that party were, so I just locked up everything tight... all was quiet when I awoke the next morning! (I think that house is used by park staff during the summer, and it was a Saturday night so they were probably just letting off steam.) Otherwise, super quiet and peaceful for my three night stay!

The lack of wifi is definitely frustrating and cell service was basically unavailable with AT&T (couldn't call out, receive calls, or even send/receive basic texts) - - nice to be off the grid, but inconvenient as I couldn't even research tours and things to do, and glad I didn't have an emergency... (Highly recommend a router is installed so guests at least have the option to use it...)

The heater in the bathroom didn't work, but the bedroom heater worked great, and the wood burning stove was awesome to heat the entire kitchen and living room!

Bottom line - perfect home base to explore GTNP, as long as you can tolerate being off the grid completely! :) HIGHLY RECOMMEND to singles, couples or small families!

Owner's Response: Dear Jen, Thanks for your review. I appreciate your kind words and want to make a comment about the wifi access. There is no wifi available at the cabin's location and we make that clear to our guests before they book. The cabin is remote and not served by any company. The cell service does work for most phones. Sometimes guests have to go outside for the cell service to work properly. We've never had a party in the National Park staff house before so that's a rare occurrence. I'm glad you enjoyed your stay despite these inconveniences.

Fantastic remote cabin

  • 5 of 5

My family stayed in this cabin four nights recently during a visit to Grand Teton NP. It is about 20-25 minutes from Jackson and about 10 from GTNP. We loved it!

If you want amenities, luxury, and convenience then do not stay here. If you want a unique experience in a very private cabin with a view of the Grand Tetons, this is it! The cabin is wonderful! Not fancy, but it just feels like a trip to the west. Loved every minute of it!

Absolutely ideal place to end each day we were at Grand Teton!

  • 5 of 5

This charming little cabin was exactly what we were looking for! Cozy and quaint with outstanding views of the Grand Tetons, functional kitchen and unique decor. Everything was perfect! The owners even have everything needed for exploring the area. We couldn't have asked for better accommodations.
