Elk Lover’s Package at Jackson Lake Lodge Offers Savings, Scenery and the Wonders of Wyoming Wildlife

GRAND TETON NATIONAL PARK, Wyo., July 16 /PRNewswire/ -- A spectacular setting for experiencing the wonders of wildlife in its natural state, Jackson Lake Lodge is offering a special $179 Elk Lover's Package from September 2 through October 4, 2008.

As a part of the package at this full-service resort, classic cottage accommodations and a breakfast buffet for two in the Mural Dining Room are included for a savings of 25 percent off regular pricing. Also included with each stay is a welcome gift with a self-guided excursion to help guests experience the Park at one of the most colorful times of the season.

Each September, elk can be found in abundance migrating through Grand Teton National Park toward their winter home near the town of Jackson. Their unique bugling call starts as a low whistling sound that builds and culminates into the high-pitched sound of a flute. These distinct sounds can be heard throughout the area and are an added bonus to the vibrant fall colors seen in the aspens, willows and foliage in the Park.

Jackson Lake Lodge's $179 Elk Lover's Package is valid for new bookings only, and is based on space availability for single or double occupancy. The package rate includes one-night accommodation, buffet breakfast for two in the Mural Dining Room, a welcome gift and self-guided elk excursion, and is exclusive of tax, gratuities, and incidental charges. Use of a private car is recommended to enhance the overall experience, and transportation is not included. The package rate is not applicable to groups or conventions, and other restrictions may apply. Advance reservations are required and can be made by calling 800-628-9988.

Located on a bluff overlooking Jackson Lake and the stunning Teton Mountain Range, Jackson Lake Lodge is perfectly situated to watch elk and other wildlife in their natural habitat right from the windows. Look out the 60-foot windows of the upper lobby with views that put you face-to-face with Teton Mountain Range and you literally get the picture. Immediately captivated by the scenery and beauty of the national surroundings, visitors to Jackson Lake Lodge often return year-after-year to reconnect with nature and one another.
