We arrived after dark and they assigned us a room that was already occupied. There was no linens for the bed unless you wanted to pay an additional $20 to them for accommodations that were already over priced with no amenities. The showers cost 25 cents for 30 seconds and it took about one minute get hot water and it didn’t last long. The bathrooms were clean but the soap dispensers were empty. WiFi was none existent. I don’t believe they get any repeat business. Don’t waste your money there are nicer places in town.

I wish someone had written a review about the reality of this place, because then I could have saved myself $187. I'm writing this review so others can make a better decision on whether or not they want to stay here. We stayed here for one night in August. PROS: Cabin is very well insulated, great for winter. CONS: (1) no dropbox for the key when you check out before they arrive in the office, we left at 6 am so our only option was locking the key in the room (2) no deadbolt on the door (3) no smoke detector (4) no air conditioner (we were roasting in the room at 85 degrees, and opening the windows and front door helped temporarily because we were choking on wildfire smoke) (5) filthy bathroom (see photos) the shower curtain was yellow and crusty with scum, the tub and sink were brown, I used a Clorox wipe and was able to clean off the dirt, so it wasn't mineral deposits (the toilet looked filthy too) (6) no bathroom fan switch, the fan was there but there was no way to turn it on (7) no television, not even local channels (8) no microwave (9) no fridge (10) stained sheets on the bed (11) porch lights didn't work (12) the water lines were full of air and every single time we used the sink, shower, or toilet, the water would sputter violently (13) the office closed and everyone left at 8 pm, but the email I got said they closed at 10 pm, so if you get there after 8 pm you might not be able to get a room.

Ads as rv park . NO! Grounds are horribly kept. Full hook up offered, well must be dry, all we had was air and spitting water. Junky looking. Not at all like the pics. Overpriced. Left after one night. Ask for a refund, because of no water. Man at the desk argued and said we did have water. How rude! He said he would ask corporate...LOL! Who is that? Oh and the restaurant... the cook was dripping sweat, so NO!

I chose the "park modle" for our stay and it was $199 per night. Things in this area are so expensive. The pictures were true to what we received. I did not realize that the loft with 2 beds, you would have to crawl on your knees around that room as the ceiling is very very low. This place is 30 minutes from the Dubois city and 30 minutes from Grand Teton entrance, so truly in the "middle of nowhere." There is no service and their internet is spotty at best. There was a tv in our unit, but we could never get service of any kind to use it. Every dish I pulled out of the kitchen was dirty...either greasy, dirt or bugs in/on it. Our unit was stated for 6 people and there is no way 6 people could fit in there. I assume the couch was a pull out, but there were not any sheets anywhere if we had wanted to use it and the couch needed to be thrown out...you could not even sit on it as it just dipped down in the middle. There is no AC (which they told me) and in July/August it starts getting hot in the unit by 10 am. I would not stay here again. I would pay the higher prices and stay in the park or Jackson Hole.

We were accused of stealing tv. There wasn't even a tv there and we were accused of it. Staff played cheap tricks to steal money from us. There was no evidence that there was a tv and they didnt had any proof either that we stole it. Beware of this property.
