We've stayed at Grand Targhee twice now and love this resort. To be totally fair, the rooms aren't the greatest. It's basically a motel room with an upgraded super-comfy bed. Which, is just what you're looking for when you check in to a place like Grand Targhee: a comfy place to crash after spending all of your energy outdoors. We haven't been up during the winter, but in summer it is reminiscent of your favorite camp, with outdoor activities galore to keep you occupied throughout the day (archery, climbing wall, mountain biking, swiming, hiking, frisbee golf, horseback riding...).
The staff is extremely nice, helpful, and laid back. On multiple occasions they have gone out of their way to make our stay more enjoyable.. even going so far as to.. gAsP.. bend the rules! (Unlike corporate chain establishments). We'll be back another summer to enjoy the great views, peaceful, secluded atmosphere, and the fantastic time that we have up in Wydaho!
