Long gravel driveway to get to the Moonlight Cottages
If you stayed here and have some insider info for us, let us know!
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.
Beautiful, lots of rules
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.
More like glamping!
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
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.
Hoot cottage experience
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 :)
A lovely place to stay!
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.
