Jackson Lake Lodge officially opened on June 11, 1955 and has since been
visited by millions of Americans and foreign guests. In its long history,
the lodge has been host to numerous dignitaries as well as high-profile
conferences. President Kennedy, President Nixon, President Reagan,
President Clinton and Lady Bird Johnson have all visited Jackson Lake
Lodge. The lodge was also the site of the 1989 U.S.-Soviet talks between
U.S. Secretary of State James Baker and Soviet Foreign Minister Eduard
Shevardnadze where the two nations signed a statement of peace and
friendship which helped establish the detente leading to the end of the
Cold War.

Perched on a bluff overlooking Jackson Lake with the Grand Teton Mountains
as a backdrop, Jackson Lake Lodge offers 385 guestrooms, suites and
cottages with spectacular views. The full-service lodge’s upper lobby
features 60-foot picture windows framing the Teton Mountain range and
providing a relaxing place for guests to watch for moose, buffalo and an
abundance of other wildlife that gather near Jackson Lake.
