Our lowest price ever for our Hipcamp guests. A fantastic stay, super luxurious beds, brand new cottages with themes, a mini kitchenette, and a deluxe restroom and shower house very close by. Only the best for our Hipcampers! Two queen beds with nicely appointed linens, and one or two twin beds. Extra pet fee of $15 per stay/per pet; please pay when you arrive. Choose between themes of Ananda, Hoot, Howdy, and Schuss.

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!

I loved the ability to self check in. Sharon’s instructions to get to the campgrounds made it easy to navigate even in the dark. Very cozy and cute cabins with lots of amenities.

This was a lovely place to stay, once found. You will be sent a ton of information and it’s hard to sift through. See below for simpler directions, and also know that it might have been a great ‘dark sky’ location, if only the extremely bright light from the shower/restroom building. No Milky Way for us on a clear night.

DIRECTIONS: Do not follow the confusing directions sent in your 4 emails and one text, of you’ll be as turned around as we were for :45 minutes.

From WB I-26: DO NOT FOLLOW GPS TAKING YOU ON N175th - we were told that the bridges are out. Take next right one road further west - N 160th. Then a right on E 100 N, quick left on 5050 E. Look for ‘Aspen Grove Inn’ sign on the right. This is where ‘Moonlight Cottages’ are. It’s an RV park too. Take first driveway to the right and look for lettered cottages. If you cross Heise bridge, you’ve gone too far.

In your cottage you will find a two-page laminate ‘rules and regulations’ sheet of do’s and don’ts. You will find signs with warnings and instructions in the bathrooms, lounge chairs, kiddy swing, and, yes, you get the idea. We were so paranoid of our dog’s hair getting on the beds, we stripped all 3 of their comforters and put our camping bedding on top. Dog hair on beds is a big charge - so be aware. Not sure why dogs are allowed with all of the stipulations.

Again, a lovely place, unclear directions and lots of rules.

Sharon and her husband went above and beyond to provide a save storage space for our bikes! In addition, the entire stay was wonderful to include paddle boats, kids playground with bunnies, Camp bikes, and all the amenities anyone could wish for. We’ll be planning another trip to this wonderful facility. Thank you for everything

Very peaceful place. The cabin was so cute. The bathroom/showers are really close. Extra care was given to make the room feel unique and homey.

Excellent weekend in the cottage. Friendly hosts. Only 20 minutes from downtown Idaho Falls. Very close to a number of outdoor activities. We loved the Borrow Barn. We only wish we had budgeted more time for golf and possibly a trip to Jackson.

The cottage we stayed in was lovely and very clean. The beds were incredibly comfortable and the kids loved the bunk beds. Very kid friendly area. Wish we could have stayed longer :)

What a great place to stay! We got to stay in the Hoot Cabin and it was not only super cute - but super cozy! We had everything we needed, including a lovely little bath house to freshen up in. We also really enjoyed the close proximity to the Snake River where we took an evening drive and saw lots of wildlife.

The Hoot Cabin was so cute!The Snake River that flowed nearby was beautiful.
