It’s hard not to let the buzz of everyday life simply slip away at Rocking Rackets, where the magnificent landscape and open space, abundant with wildflowers and wildlife, serve to remind its visitors to slow down, breathe deeply, and effortlessly soak in the natural beauty of the West.

The Rocking Rackets cabin is a unique and historic western property that was hand-built in 1925 with a larger addition added later. Rocking Rackets is a two bedroom, single bathroom cabin that sits on two private acres inside Grand Teton National Park, granting its visitors a blissfully-secluded atmosphere to unwind in with family and friends. Whether you’re in the mood to just soak in the natural beauty and enjoy the fresh mountain air or work up a sweat in some of the most stunning nature in the West, Rocking Rackets is an exceptional location for either. Unobstructed views of the picturesque Tetons and sage meadows below can be admired from any of the decks at the cabin, or visitors can easily get up and personal with the alpine terrain with direct access to countless biking, horseback riding, and hiking trails nearby. Rocking Rackets is also just minutes from Teton Village and a beautiful 20-minute drive to the historic town of Jackson when you’ve had your fill of pronghorn and bald eagles for the day and are looking to treat yourself to an evening of dining and drinks at one of the many lovely restaurants in the area.

Walk-Through:

Shortly after entering Grand Teton National Park you’ll find the private gravel road that leads to Rocking Racket’s driveway and the quiet of the area will have already set in. The front door is on one of the three decks, in front of which you’ll see outdoor seating. Once inside the cabin you’ll see the open concept living room and dining area are straight ahead. Wooden stairs between the dining and living areas will lead you up to the quaint guest bedroom loft which hosts two twin beds. Back in the dining area, if you take a right you’ll find the kitchen and then the bathroom to the right once in the kitchen. Past the kitchen is the master bedroom with one of the two wood-burning stoves in the cabin. Additionally, the decks on the property almost completely wrap around the cabin.

Bedroom Configurations:

Master Bedroom - The master bedroom is located on the original side of the cabin with original wood floors and log beams. Additionally, there is private outdoor access from the master bedroom. Charming paned windows behind the king-sized bed fill the room with natural light. The room also hosts a sitting area and a small wardrobe. Grab a book, a loved one, or a glass of wine and curl up next to the fire while the peace and quiet of the national park settles in.

Kitchen - The kitchen is also located in the original part of the cabin, between the master bedroom and the living and dining room areas. Enjoy a peaceful breakfast in this charming kitchen while sitting at the breakfast nook with a hot cup of coffee and fresh eggs scrambled in a cast iron pan, gazing out the paned windows and soaking in the beauty of Grand Teton National Park.

Living and Dining Areas - This part of the home was added on later to the original cabin. This bright area has high ceilings, light-colored wood, and abundant windows. The dining room hosts a wooden table with places for ten guests. After dinner or a long day spent in the wilderness, there is plenty of space for family and friends to sprawl out into the living room and play games while cozied up to the warm, wood-burning stove. From the living room you have three access points to go outside. The front deck is covered, spacious and has two sets of outdoor furniture. Often there are a dozen or so different bird species that can be seen while sitting on the deck as well as other little critters such as chipmunks and squirrels. Deer, moose, and foxes have also been known to make an appearance now and again.

Loft Bedroom - The wooden stairs in the living room bring you up to the loft, a quaint room with two twin beds, a nightstand, a wardrobe and two dressers. The view from this room of the surrounding scenery is quite stunning! This room is often utilized by children to sleep in, but please be careful on the wooden stairs with very young children or people with disabilities in order to avoid any potential safety issues from slipping or falling.

Additional Information Regarding Rocking Rackets Cabin:

- As fore mentioned, the cabin is located in Grand Teton National Park and offers the opportunity to enjoy the beautiful scenery and to connect with nature, that being said, there is a high possibility that some of that nature may want to come into the home. It is not uncommon for a chipmunk to pop in and say hello if you leave the doors open for too long. Additionally, mice are a part of the natural ecosystem in Grand Teton National Park and given the natural setting at Rocking Rackets, they are part and parcel of staying at a cabin in a location like this. We do our best to reduce the occurrence of such but it is an inevitable part of staying at the cabin.

- There is an outdoor fire pit on the property, however, it is strictly prohibited for guest use. The risk of starting a wildfire in the national park is simply too high. There are two fireplaces in the home and if you would like, a staff member can come to the cabin and manage the outdoor fire pit for a fee.

- The road to the cabin is a dirt gravel road. It is necessary to have an SUV or other vehicle with a higher clearance as the road is dirt and commonly rutted for a half mile.

- The cabin does not have a dishwasher or a clothing washer and dryer. The closest laundromat is "The Missing Sock" near Smith's grocery store in South Jackson.

Absolutely Perfect

  • 5 of 5

Great property just inside the south entrance to Teton National Park. The "newer" side of the cabin was great for late evening gatherings around the wood burning stove listening to old 33's on the turntable and playing Trivial Pursuit. The original cabin contained a well appointed bath with all the necessities, a well stocked kitchen to cook whatever you desire and the main bedroom with a super comfy bed. Highly recommended to anyone who is looking for that perfect "rustic" cabin with many modern amenities. If your lucky you might even see the abundant wildlife in the neighborhood. Thanks to the the entire family for sharing their place with our family.

Wonderfully spot, but needs some work

  • 3 of 5

Cabin is located in a great spot, but it was a bit rougher than anticipated or advertised. At night it got a little cold and there is only two baseboard electric heaters, one in the main bedroom and the other in the bathroom. There are wood stoves, but they are not really practical for on the spot heat. We also encountered many flies in the house, both alive and dead which was quite offputting upon arrival and the first few days. We also had bees getting inside through cracks and crevices too. We also had mice and traps all over the place including several dead ones that were rotting under furniture. The main bedroom bed is small and not very comfortable, so our sleep wasn't terrific. For what we paid, which based on other properties was a good rate, we were expecting a smoother time from the issues above, to the fact that our local management company in charge of the property wasn't very responsive before or during the beginning part of our trip. but about half way through they were much more so, and gave us a credit back to make up for issues related to cleanliness above. We also didn't have wifi for several days, whch had become an issue for us, but it did finally get corrected. All in all a great vacation and this house will hold some lovely memories, but as a family we had higher expectations and would not do I think again here at this property. Last issue, home away seemed totally disconnected from all of this, my online account was never up to date and was unusable and not at all helpful.

A rare gem inside the park at the foot of the Grand Tetons

  • 5 of 5

I have been to this cabin twice and count each time as an unforgettable experience. It is a rare inholding within the park and the fact it can even be rented is extraordinary. The property is a mix of rustic and modern with a lovingly hand crafted original cabin and beautiful expansion seamlessly joined to form a warm, family friendly home under the peaks. The views from the living room and loft beds are spectacular. One of my favorite memories from the last trip was sitting with my wife in the early morning (tea in hand) on the front deck watching a thunder storm gather and spawn huge rainbows over the Grand Teton. The kitchen is a galley with a table nook and provided everything we needed. The back bedroom in the original cabin is quiet and cozy. The bed was very comfortable for my wife and I. The kids enjoyed being in the big (and safe) loft. Trails right off the driveway connect with the major trails in the valley and you can be in the mountains in no time. It is a short drive or bike ride to Teton Village and getting into town requires a car but is an easy drive. The big lakes are also a short drive in the other direction which makes this location so much better than being in town. If you want quiet, a place where the kids can explore within sight of the cabin, no traffic, and fantastic views this is the spot.

Rustic and warm cabin with cool history and in Grand Teton National Park! Glamping and awesome views

  • 5 of 5

The cabin is a unique property in Grand Teton National Park. It was very cool to hear the history of the cabin and the fact that the original part of the cabin where the bedroom, kitchen and bathroom is was built in 1920! The wood floors are the original as well as all the logs. Love the feel of old wood, in Jackson in a 100 year old cabin, talk about perfection.

The full size bed in the master was not ideal and we would have preferred a Queen but we made it work. The loft was perfect for our two kids, I was a little worried that the 5 year old would fall on the stairs but it has double railings and no problems there.

The newer build on the cabin has the loft and the HUGE living/dining room. It's a nice light colored wood with natural light. It was wonderful to play games and sit around in the great room with the fireplace going.

I was surprised that there was WiFi at the cabin! Great reception, almost wish it didn't come with internet :D

Bathroom has a new shower, the bathroom is a little small but they provide lots of towels and amenities enough for our family of 4 for the week and half we were there.

The miles and miles of hiking trails just down the road were awesome.

The road up to the cabin was exactly as the lady who booked us said. It is a private dirt road that winds up a bit to get to the cabin. You need a vehicle with higher clearance, standard SUV is what we rented and it was perfect.

Sat on the deck everyday and couldn't count how many birds we saw, lots of little hummingbirds. We had a little chipmunk friend come in the cabin when we left the doors open but there staff came up and got it out right away. One morning we walked out to find a Cow Moose and her calf in the back yard!

We will be back to this cabin and want to make it a regular yearly trip!
