Grand Tetons Lodging

A visitor to the Yellowstone region will soon discover that booking their Grand Tetons lodging stay at Teton Springs Lodge & Spa, in Victor, Idaho is an optimum location for regional exploring and adventure. Jackson Hole, Wyoming is is a 20 minute jaunt from Teton Springs, with absolutely eye-popping views along the way and another 15 minutes to Grand Teton National Park, one of the most scenic treasures in North America. Teton Springs Resort is literally in the heart of the Grand Tetons lodging community, perched on the eastern border of Idaho and with recreation options galore only minutes away in every direction.

It’s tough to leave Teton Springs Lodge & Spa, for the first few days anyway, given the mother lode of activities right outside one’s Grand Tetons lodgingunit. If you’re staying in one of the deluxe cabins surrounding the resort’s 18 hole golf course, you can stroll down to one of the nine stocked ponds and lakes surrounding the golf course. Test your mettle casting the perfect fly to one of the prize Yellowstone Cutthroat’s lurking just beneath the surface. Bring your camera for the abundant wildlife you’re likely to see as you stroll into the neighboring Caribou-Targhee National Forest and to capture that Bald Eagle that’s normally perched on his favorite 7th fairway cabin top. Don’t worry; bikes don’t frighten this magnificent specimen so that’s another terrific way to explore this complex.

Springtime In Yellowstone National Park

Springtime rings eternal (and free) in Grand Teton & Yellowstone National Parks for Teton Springs Lodge & Spa guests!

Here’s one for your “bucket list” – VISIT YELLOWSTONE PARK! Chances are you have already experienced this wonder of the world, our nation’s first National Park, at some point in your life. After all, Yellowstone has been around for well over a hundred & thirty years. So, if you haven’t felt the spray of the most famous geyser in the universe erupt, Old Faithful, or explored its 2million plus acres, then you better get going! At Teton Springs Lodge & Spa, we pride ourselves on having the world’s best “neighbors” – Teton & Yellowstone National parks. There is virtually never a bad time to visit these world-renown treasures, but for me, spring time is best.

Come early May, the roads open to motorized vehicles, although, with so little traffic this time of year you’ll wonder if the roads are truly open or if you alone have some mystical pass to enter this magical world. The only thing better than a magical pass is a FREE one and the staff at Teton Springs will make sure you’ve got one of those too, right there among your regional maps and “please don’t feed the bears” pamphlets! There are manyoutdoor activities in the Teton Valley and Yellowstone Park.

It’s a short and scenic jaunt to Grand Teton National Park from Teton Springs. You’ll love the trip, especially if you visit Jackson Hole along the way. Don’t forget to stop, or at least slow down, when you see the National Elk Refuge just outside Jackson’s city limits and bordering Teton National Park. You may see the magnificent Trumpeter Swans that call Flat Creek home, and the largest elk herd in the world, or at least part of the pack who haven’t yet boogied for their summer habitat in Yellowstone. Marvel at the Grand Teton Mountains as the sun glistens on their peaks and set your viewfinder on the mighty Snake River, running wild with spring runoff.

Springtime in Yellowstone means spotting baby bison literally napping on the roadways and an invite to see all of the park’s famous creatures coming out of their winter slumber; coyotes, eagles, black & grizzly bears, mule deer, elk and the great gray wolf. The wildlife is not nearly as leery of human types this time of year so up-close-and- personal viewing is probable. Yes, it’s a glorious time in the parks, for you, and the mostly 4-legged “neighbors” who reside there.

Enjoy your special time in these national treasures, spring or summer, on us! Just remember, don’t feed the bears and we’ll see you back at Teton Springs Lodge!
