... conditions were not optimal so we enjoyed the beers we had put in our pockets and then hit the road. I took it slow as it was getting dark and the snow was intensifying. At times we could only see 15 feet in front of us, it was hairy. We were fortunate that it wasn't sticking to the road until the last ten miles or so when the road was less mountainous. We made it to the cafeteria just before it closed, got some food to go and retreated to the cabin. We awoke ...
... been friends for 45 years. They met at an educational conference that was snowed in in 1968. Originally, there were 12 of them, but a few have died, moved away, or lost touch. They have taken trips together throughout the years, leaving their spouses and children behind. When one of them died, she left $10,000 for the rest of them to take a trip. What a great friendship. The four of them take trips to ...

Went to Prismatic Geyser, the largest (in area) and most colourful. Also saw Old Faithful twice more. Spent time at Old Faithful Lodge on wifi and trying to sort Anna's phone -- she's not happy unless she has a data connection. This isn't a Facebook ...
... continue on. The wolf climbed higher and higher and we finally lost it in the trees. Wow and wow, we were so elated!
The view from on top of Uni hill is great. You are looking down on the reservoir and across to another hill covered with trees. Watched as some bull elk and then cow came out of the woods to feed on the open grasses. They were keeping a close eye out so don't know if they could smell the wolf or knew they might be ...
... how to spin-bounce stones into the Lake. Plan is to come back here and take some kayaks out... Then back to Signal Mountain, shorties on all round and an evening dip in Jackson Lake....f***ing freezing to start with but once in, it was lovely, and some great mountain views helped as well. We also saw two Elk in the campground right down by the Lake, which was great. Then dinner on the fire again, and kids in bed when someone told us we had a flat, a proper ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Signal Mountain Lodge Moran
The price you pay is for the view....not the rooms. Luckily, the clouds lifted late in the day of our one-night stay so we could see the mountains. We experienced rain, sleet, and snow showers during our few days in the Jackson Hole/Teton area so we didn't get to do much hiking. We spent one night in the park here at Signal Mountain before moving on to Yellowstone. We stayed in a Lakefront retreat with an unobstructed view of the lake and mountains (and clouds!). The room was a little chilly at first and the maintenance staff promptly brought an electric heater to us. The Trapper Grill restaurant was good. Beware, the portions are huge! Kitchenette in room was sparsely supplied. You would need extra cookware if you intend to actually cook anything. Full sized refrig was nice. Walls were thin. Did not hear voices but did hear plumbing noise. Beds were comfy and room was clean. Not much interior atmosphere but a priceless view out the window. Deer grazed just outside in the evening. Convenient central location in the park. Nice gift shop. Friendly staff.
Views 2 Die 4 but not the Ritz
Views to die 4 in lake front units. It is not the Ritz. We have stayed twice and the SML guided fishing was fun both times. The restuarant is also suprisingly good. No excessive noise issues either stay. Good for families who like outdoors activities. We went hiking, climbing with Exum(advance reservations)
, horse back riding outside the park, fishing and fooling around in the lake. About 1 hour to Yellowstone where you have to stop for buffalo herds in the road. Wildlife abounds away from the hotel. Great restaurants in Jackson Hole, Nani's pasta house(casual) and Snake River Grill(expensive).
We spent four nights in a lakefront retreat unit here. It had a living/cooking area, separate bedroom, and bath, but the big attraction was the deck looking over Jackson Lake and the Tetons. Spectacular! Staff very helpful, putting our groceries in the refrig before the room was cleaned for us to occupy. The cooking area is very tight, but you can manage. We ate in the bar one night to take advantage of one of the few tv's in a national park (the opening NFL game) and had excellent burgers. Great location for experiencing Grand Teton. Only drawback is that the lakefront retreats are four units to a building (2 up and 2 down) and you hear everyone else's plumbing noise. But I'd put up with that again for the view.
OK, it isn't the fanciest place to stay, but remember you are on Jackson Lake in Grand Teton National Park. Really you couldn't be in a better location. We stayed in a two room cabin. It was very nicely furnished and VERY CLEAN. The beds were excellent. It also had a desk and a small refrigerator. There was no TV, for which I was thankful. We had a partial view of the mountains from our window and a nice porch with chairs and a picnic table. We ate at the Trapper Grill twice and had good food both times. It is a cabin and the door hinges do creak. If your neighbor slams the door you'll hear it. We had no troubles with our fan like other reviews I've read. We couldn't hear anyone talking next door so the walls can't be that thin. The staff and the guests were all friendly and respectful. It was a pleasant experience and I would certainly stay there again.
Stayed in an upper lakefront retreat at $199 per night for two nights in mid June. The 1960's pre-fab looking unit had been recently remodeled with new kitchen cabinets, bath, and flooring. Even with the improvements however, the four unit building showed its age. There was no sound proofing between the units and none in the exterior walls. Could constantly hear doors slamming and cars pulling in and out. The view of the lake was beautiful but the accomodations were just satisfactory. Had no electricity the second morning of our stay. The front desk staff was very pleasant and helpful opening a small convenience store for us after our luggage was lost by the airlines. The food in the grill was also very good. Found ourselves gravitating to Jackson Lake Lodge for activities.
Doesn't get much better
With its dramatic view of the Tetons and Mount Moran, of Jackson Lake - and with its comfortable lodging and friendly helpful staff - well, it just doesn't get much better. Spent only one night in a Lakeside Retreat - May 16, 2004 - but wish it were much much longer. I can't recommend Signal Mountain Lodge enough. It surpassed my (high) expectations!
I have been to Signal Mountain Lodge twice. The first time in the summer of 2002 and then again May of 2003. We got married and our group of 20 stayed at the Signal Mountain Lodge. Both times I have been totally impressed. I have stayed in both the cabin and the Lakefront rooms. They were always clean. The staff is fantastic. I love the food. The breakfast is an event I look forward to everyday. The resort is quite. I would stay again and again at the Signal Mountain Lodge! Try the Black berry margarita in the bar!
OK especially for families
stayed July 5, 2003- the Grill was better than average- room was OK- had king bed- obstructed view of lake- $168 was expensive for us! Lots of families who seemed to be enjoying themselves- enjoyed the microwave and frig
We stayed there in Cabin 111 this past weekend (June 6-7, '03). From the outside, the log cabins are neat and attractive with a tiny private porch for whiling away the afternoon. Inside, it was very dark with loud, creaky floorboards and we agree totally with the first reviewer as far as the noise level from the bathroom fan. Plus, the insulation was poking through between the logs in the ceiling and the bathtub contained dried vomit, which we did not notice until we went to shower the next morning. Gross! The room overall was small but cozy, and our heater worked, thankfully. The bedding was clean and the views from the porch were very nice. Food at the Trapper Grill was unremarkable (typical hotel food). We did not get to eat at The Peaks (fancier venue) because their hours did not fit our sightseeing schedule but the menu looked enticing. The price was definitely right at $80 per night, so if you don't mind a few glitches and sloppy housekeeping, this may be all right for you.
The other reviews here sound great, but we would not stay here again - at least not in the type of room we got. We rented rooms in the log cabins which consist of three adjacent (shared wall) units comprising a single cabin. $137 per nite. They have two double beds in each room - no fireplace or frig. The room was dirty. We stayed in Room 131 the first nite and the heater did not work. We wore sweats to bed and piled up all the comforters from all four beds on ours. It was still too cold to sleep. In addition, the water heater for the three units is in the bedroom right next to the bed and was quite noisy. Not too charming.
