The SpacePlease read all the details before requesting the space, there are particular features that would not be agreeable to some. This 2-story cottage is located in Grand Teton National Park on the SW edge of the old town of Kelly. The local tour groups bring their guests along the highway to Kelly for major wildlife viewing of bison, moose, elk, deer, antelope, bald eagles, wolves, grizzly bear. The cottage has a bedroom loft, bunk bedroom, sleeps 4 comfortably & 6 if you use the couch bed in the living room. The cottage has a full kitchen and spacious mud room for ski equipment. There's a pellet stove for added warmth and high speed internet access.
You also have the possibility of adding additional guests in the basement apartment of this cottage, if it's not occupied (occasionally, the apartment is used by the local science school or wildlife, research biologists for temporary faculty or scientists. There are no views from the basement but there is a workout room w/ping-pong table - a fun kid hangout). This overflow has a 3 night minimum and would be $65/noc or if you wanted the basement apartment alone, it would be $75/noc with a 3 noc minimum. If you had additional people with a motor home, they could plug in and use the bathrooms but this would also be for an additional $65/noc. Guest AccessGuests may access everything in the main part of the cottage and the common areas of the basement, but not the basement apartment when another renter is there. Interaction with GuestsOur family home is in the same compound as the cottage. We're on the premises most of the time and eager to answer questions about the area. Since the lists of things to do in the area is so long, we have lots of maps and information booklets in the cottage as well. The NeighborhoodKelly, WY is surrounded by Grand Teton National Park. It's the funkiest, eclectic part of the valley made up of a wide variety of do-it-yourself people (NY Times best selling author, BBC cougar, research biologists, Himalayan trekking guides, world's leading doctor in high altitude & 3rd world illnesses, backcountry horse guides) with the best views in the county. You can almost touch the stars at night while listening to the rush of the Gros Ventre River and watch bison graze on the lawn. We have a post office with limited hours and a place to get great coffee and a sandwich next to the highway Getting AroundThe airport, also in Grand Teton National Park, is 7 miles away and has all rental car services.
