Hal and Iola Blake started renting the Moulton Ranch Cabins in 1999 after Hal's grandfather Clark Moulton and his wife Veda May Moulton retired to their winter home at the age of 86 and 84 respectively.

Hal, a descendent of original Mormon Row homesteaders, has had a love for the Tetons and the surrounding Grand Teton National Park since a very young age when he would spend his summers helping on the ranch.

Iola grew up on a farm in Southeast Idaho where she learned to love the country way of life. The first time Hal brought her here, she fell in love with the cabins north of Jackson Hole and the view of the Teton Mountain Range behind the oft photographed Moulton Barn.

Hal and Iola spend their summers renting the guest cabins conveniently located near Jackson Hole, where they enjoy the beauty of the land and getting to know wonderful people from all over the world. Their winters are spent in Idaho where they were both born and raised. They have 4 children and 5 grandchildren and love to spend time with them in the glorious shadow of the Grand Tetons.

 

It has been a joy to be able to own and operate these little "off the beaten path" cabins. The history is abundant and we never tire of looking at the Teton mountains and informing others about the sacrifices made to tame this land before the Grand Teton National Park was established. It is part of a great heritage that continues to be displayed through the loving care of the cabins and the grounds. People often leave here with a longing for the simple times gone by, where families worked together for the common good of each other.
