Since opening in June 2020, our guests have loved everything about our unique, themed Moonlight Cottages. A slightly campy but very comfortable stay. Our four Moonlight Cottages were built by the Amish in Salmon, Idaho, and have fun themes and curated decor-- A:"Ananda" yoga bliss, B: "Hoot" campy, C: "Howdy" western, and D: "Schuss" ski. Each has a feature wall-- Ananda has a venetian plastered wall with a large Nigel May Photography "Teton Sunrise" picture, Hoot and Schuss have hand-painted paint-by-number full wall murals, and Howdy has a bark-on chinked log wall with a John Hart original oil painting. A retro microwave and a fridge, 2 luscious queen beds, plus 1 twin bed (A and C) or 2 twin beds bunked (B and D). Spacious and airy, the Moonlight Cottages have two sources of heat for cooler months, and A/C for the summer months. Cottage guests use the very close by Loo-euvre Restroom and Shower House with a well-lit short path from each cottage. The Cottage Courtyard has a picnic table and a charcoal/wood grill. BBQ grills available upon request and a fee. Firewood $5 from camp host. Extra pet fee of $15 per stay/per pet; please pay when you arrive, and kindly disclose at the time of your booking request.
Our deluxe no-fee Loo-uvre Restroom and Shower House is a welcome amenity to campers, and is a short walk.
90 minutes to the east to Jackson/GTNP/then South Gate in YNP (2 routes-- the mountain pass or the easy Snake River route), and 90 minutes to the north to West Yellowstone/Yellowstone West Gate (2 steep mountain passes). Both routes are beautiful with waterfalls, gorgeous mountain views, and Idaho countryside.
ESSENTIAL-- Given that we only run self check in, have dark skies with no street lights and few street signs, and the spottiness of non-verizon cell service, please expect a text with pictures to your cell phone listed with Hipcamp. In order to not get totally lost and not being able to contact our staff, pretty please take a full screen of the entire text and pictures. With the directions in your photos, you will get here in good order. You've been kindly warned. Welcome!
