The location is great for leaving Grand Teton national park. The atmosphere is very quiet. All people are very polite and happy to serve you. The food at both restaurants is spectacular. All you need is right inside the resort and available for you.
First, we stayed in one of the standard rooms, not one of the cabins that seem to have the most negative reviews. We stayed two nights while exploring Jackson Hole, Grand Tetons and Southeast Yellowstone. The location was the closest I could find and was not an unreasonable distance away. Our room was nice, it met expectations. Bed was comfy, rooms stayed warm despite cold temperatures, towels were soft and TV had a good amount of channels. This may be hard to believe, but the dinner food was outrageously good (breakfast was great too), as was the service. We are huge foodies and we were blown away. A restaurant in the middle of a town of 300 people served the best food out of our entire trip, including Jackson Hole! When we come back to the Tetons, we will stay here again. Manager and all service folk were very accommodating.…
Advice for Wedding Planners This review is provided based on our experience working with The Hatchet Resort for our daughter’s wedding for the benefit of others desiring to have their wedding at this venue. We began our discussions with the Lodging Manager about a year ahead of the desired wedding date. As of this posting we recommend you ask for Val Meinen. She is very collegial and will guide you through their room block process and disclosing the room rates. The Hatchet has a variety of rooms from a standard room with bath, to suites and rooms with shared baths at different rates. There is also the option of renting The Osprey House, which is an A-frame house with full kitchen, small living room, queen bedroom, two single beds in separate bedroom and bath down stair and three double bedrooms and bath upstairs. The rooms are sparely appointed and rustic. The beds were uniformly comfortable, plenty of hot water, wifi had ample bandwidth and was very reliable. Satellite television was available in every unit. We would rate the overall quality of the lodging as average. Once the lodging arrangement was in place, we started our coordination with the banquet manager. Here you want to ask for Brandy Roberts. The Hatchet doesn’t use a standard Banquet Event Order or similar process. Instead, we discussed the menu options and conveyed our desires for the rehearsal dinner and reception meal and Brandy told us what they could and couldn’t do. Eventually we were able to establish prices for each meal and add on the sales tax and gratuity. Each bill had to be settled at the end of the night. The food was well prepared and served as a buffet. Disposable bamboo plates, regular silverware and plastic cups and glasses were used. We had separately contracted for a tent, chairs, tables, dance floor and lighting to mitigate exposure to COVID. Overall, the presentation was nice and quality of the food was average. As the rehearsal dinner and reception date drew nearer we were asked to confirm our head count for each meal. The number you provide is the number the Hatchet will prepare food for and you will be billed for at the negotiated price including tax and gratuity. No deposit was asked or provided. While we had a budgetary number in mind for each meal our recommendation is make sure you have plenty of credit on your favorite credit card, especially if you are planning an open bar. One option is to set an upper limit on your bar bill and have the staff cut off service at that level. All food and all beverages must be procured through them. No outside liquor or beverages are permitted. Brandy suggested two special drinks themed around the Huckleberry that were a big success. Dealing with Val and Brandy was easy and generally responsive. Remember you aren’t the only one have an event at their resort. On the flip side is the Pat or Patrick who is the Day Manager for The Hatchet. Patrick is ill suited for customer interface or customer service. We all know finding service industry workers is a challenge. With that knowledge our entire group was sensitive to reduced level of expected service. There were numerous comments on requests for extra towels, additional complimentary coffee packets or other asundry items being rudely rejected by Pat. We would rate the quality of service from the registration office as below average/substandard. Since the lodging and food service is rated as average and office registration as below average why hold your wedding at The Hatchet Resort? The answer is location, location, location. The views of the Grand Tetons is spectacular wedding back drop. Since their business model is based on pay as you go we strongly recommend detailed advanced planning. Confirm what is and what isn’t going to be provided by The Hatchet Resort. Avoid contact with Patrick in the front office, seek out Val and Brandy and we are confident you will have a memorable wedding venue.…
The only good thing I can say is the people go out of their way to be helpful and courteous. That fails to matter when you go into the cabin. This is the most uncomfortable cabin I have ever stayed in. The bed is very old and hard. There is only one chair and it is a wooden chair from 1965. There is no refrigerator or microwave. The shower is the size of a telephone booth. I could tolerate these things if I was spending $60 (that is all this cabin is worth). But we paid over $200 for this crummy cabin. Go elsewhere, this place is a ripoff.
We stayed at the Osprey and it was not clean. Toothpaste on the wall. Shampoo on the curtain, Ants everywhere. Actual Food in the sink strainer. Used straw on the couch. Holes in our blanket. So disappointed. VERY PRICEY!!! For the price......we didn't expect new but we did expect clean. Talked to Management and they were unwilling to compensate. In fact, they hung up on us.
