We hadden een beetje pech want toen we net begonnen met het bezichtigen voor Grand Teton toen ging een lampje op t dashboard van de auto branden, een of ander engine probleem. Gelukkig deed de auto t nog wel. Al met al hebben we 2-3 uur besteed aan het omruilen van de auto, maar t is gelukt. Nieuwe auto is een chevrolet impala, grote lompe bak. …
Vandaag een enorme rit gehad van 800 km door Colorado en Wyoming, we zijn in totaal 8,5 u onderweg geweest. Wat wel bijzonder is aan de omgeving rondom de Rockies is dat alles ongeveer op 2000-2500 meter hoogte ligt, maar relatief plat (wat heuveltjes) lijkt. De bergen die je ziet zijn dan ook rondom de 4000 m. In Wyoming lijken echt weinig mensen …

Historical Traveler Reviews Cowboy Village Resort Jackson
Little cabin in the mountains
My husband, 10 year old son and I just returned from a 4 night stay at Cowboy Village. All the lodging consists of small separate cabins. We had the single queen cabin with living area (TV/pull-out couch/small table, 2 chairs), bathroom, separate bedroom with queen bed and another TV. The cabins are very clean, maid service every day with a simple western/rustic decor. There is a small kitchenette with a 2 burner stove, small under counter refrigerator, sink and a supply of dishes, utensils, small coffee pot. It was not really large enough to cook a big meal, but certainly reasonable for breakfast, lunch. Bathroom well stocked with towels and a good shower, plenty of warm water. Our cabin had a view of the Snow King ski area, but others face a parking lot or the street. You may want to ask about that. The people in the office were very friendly and helpful with advice/suggestions. Continental breakfast served in the office in the morning and coffee, cookies and apples/oranges served the rest of the day. We did not rent a car, but got easily to the JH ski area on the daily free shuttle. The town bus was easy to use as well. Downtown Jackson is about a 4/5 block walk. Lots of cute shops/galleries and restaurants. We went to ski so spent most of our time out and about, but it was nice to come "home" to our little cabin.
Great Place to Throw Down your Saddle !!
Great location, walking distance to everything in J-Hole, including the rodeo !! From breakfast on the cabin porch, to late-night meteor-gazing, a perfect place to stay !! We were first-timers at the Village, but we'll be back again !!
A GREAT place to stay (with a few annoyances)
Wow! What a great place to stay. We reserved three cabins (one with a fireplace) and stayed two nights. All the cabins were clean and spacious, and include two TV's, a kitchenette with refrigerator, stove top, toaster, coffee maker, an assortment of plates, pans, silverware and utensils. Outside the cabin on the porch was a picnic table and a BBQ grill. The cabin with the fireplace had a pile of split logs to use as well. You can park your car right next to the entrance of the cabin for easy loading/unloading. The bathrooms were clean with a full tub/shower unit. Hot tubs are available in a central location amidst the cabins. If the review stopped here, this place (now the Togwotee Resort) would get 5/5 rating - but there were some problems - the chef at the one restaurant at the resort loves his salt! The soup and pot roast I had were so salty, it was inedible! The TV reception in our room was pretty bad - lots of snow, bad audio. I would blame it on the remote location, but the other cabins had perfect reception. On the flip side, the buffet breakfast was excellent for the price (we paid $7, kids were $4). The self-serve waffle makers were great, even if you had to wait in line to use one. The breakfast also featured bagels, scrambled eggs, potatoes, cereal, rolls, muffins, fruit and juices. The restaurant was under-staffed - there was only one girl working there (and for being alone she did a GREAT job), but items were constantly running out.
All in all though, a GREAT place to stay and highly recommended.
Really good place to stay in Jackson Hole/Grand Tetons
Pros: good location with parking *right* next to cabins, nice sized rooms with kitchettes/barbeque grill/picnic benches, helpful staff, hot tubs and coin laundry, complimentary coffee/hot chocolate/apples.
Cons: not a *great* value but the Jackson area in general is pricey anyway (one of the top 5 richest communities in the US).
Overall, I liked the place a lot; it would be IDEAL for a ski trip.
Beautiful Area Short Drive to Parks
My husband and I spent our honeymoon at Cowboy Village Resort in Jackson Hole Wyoming, a short drive from Grand Teton National Park and Yellowstone National Park. It was very conveniently located in town, but had the feel of a country setting in the mountains. There was a beautiful view of mountains from every window. It was a modern cabin with a rustic look. The cabin was immaculate with daily maid service that was unbeatable. There were hot tubs on site...great way to relax after a day of hiking. The cabins were beatifully decorated and had all the amenities, such as a sofa, cable tv, a grill outside, and a kitchenette. The only thing that I would complain about is that we had a queen bunk cabin, and the bunks are so close together that my husband hit his head every time he got in and out of bed. Overall, this was a wonderful experience, and I would highly recommend Cowboy Village to anyone from a single person to a family.
We stayed at the Cowboy Village for 5 nights and were very happy with our small cabin. It was very clean, had a helpful staff and a great location. We stayed in #110 directly next to the office. The ski shuttle picked up 10 feet from our front porch. We also walked downtown every night. It was cold, but only 6 blocks to the square. The Cadillac grill and bar is great for happy hour. Very nice locals who seem to enjoy the tourists/skiiers.
Great Little Getaway
My son and I visited last February. He is eight and we both enjoyed the simple ruggedness of the hotel. The hot tubes were nice and clean as were the rooms. The grill is expecially nice since after a day of skiing a youngster is very tired. Found a place to buy Buffalo and Elk tenderloin so the grill was perfect. We have already made reservations for next season.
Spent two nights at the Cowboy Village Resort in Jackson, Wyoming, and enjoyed it very much. It was our first trip out West, and the log cabins were fun to stay in. They were clean, well equipped, had a charcoal grill and picnic table on the porch. The Resort is within walking distance to downtown Jackson and not a far drive to National Parks. Would definetly stay there again! Wish we stayed longer!
