Jackson Lake Lodge is located near Moran in Grand Teton National Park, in the U.S. state of Wyoming.[3] The lodge has 385 rooms, a restaurant, conference rooms, and offers numerous recreational opportunities. The lodge is managed by the Grand Teton Lodge Company, and is not affiliated with the National Park Service. The Grand Teton Lodge Company also manages the Jenny Lake Lodge, as well as cabins, restaurants and other services at Colter Bay Village.[4] The lodge is located east of Jackson Lake adjacent to prime moose habitat below the Jackson Lake Dam.

In 2003, the lodge was listed as a National Historic Landmark. Designed by architect Gilbert Stanley Underwood and completed in 1955, the lodge is an example of the National Park Service's interpretation of the International Style which was commonly seen in structures built on U.S. Government parklands in the mid-20th century. The lodge combines elements of the more rustic structures of the earlier decades of the 20th century with a more modern design elements that became standard for the next couple of decades.[2][5]

Old Jackson Lake Lodge[edit]

The resort complex was built over the site of the Amoretti Hotel and Camp Company's Jackson Lake Lodge, built by Eugene Amoretti of Lander, Wyoming from 1922. Amoretti's lodge, boasting the first hot and cold running water in the valley, featured guest cabins and tent cabins. It was purchased by the Snake River Land Company in 1930 and continued to operate until 1953, when its 23 cabins were demolished in favor of the new resort.[6]

The Jackson Lake Lodge was designated a National Historic Landmark on July 31, 2003.[2]
