Surrounded by towering peaks and a national forest rich in wildlife, and boasting a thriving downtown area, Jackson isn’t your average mountain town, and nearby Jackson Hole Mountain Resort – a world-class skiing area – is one of Wyoming’s most celebrated destinations. Whether you’re here to hit the winter powder or go hiking in the warmer months, first you need a home base, and luckily, Jackson’s accommodation scene stretches beyond the usual cookie-cutter hotels. Here’s our pick of the best boutique hotels in Jackson – all bookable with Culture Trip.
The Wyoming Inn is all hands on the Western luxury deck, calling on a marriage of stone and wood that instills a heightened sense of mountain mania among its common areas and 69 rooms and suites. Paired with one of the world’s largest private collections of famed wildlife photographer Thomas Mangelsen’s work (along with other wildlife art and bronzes by numerous Western artists), there’s no doubt you’re sleeping among the Tetons. Whether you’re gnawing on a Rocky Mountain elk tenderloin at the Whistling Grizzly restaurant or sinking into overstuffed leather chairs in your room, way out West fantasies are exaggeratedly catered to with alpine-sized aplomb.
This upscale Jackson hotel offers the intimacy of a boutique with the kind of amenities and infrastructure normally reserved for much bigger hotels. Jackson Hole’s only USDA Prime Steakhouse, a fully equipped fitness center, a full-service spa, a ski valet and a concierge are just some of the services and conveniences that serve an inventory of just 17 rooms. Spacious rooms skew more motel typical than boutique, but are outfitted in rich leather, wood and natural stone finishes, corralling that much sought-after mountain vibe. Sitting just three blocks from Jackson’s charming Town Square, you’re never more than a horseshoe’s toss from the action, either.
Rustic-accented mountain vibes are infused throughout this modern boutique hotel in Jackson Hole, offering wilderness refined in a cozy environment that values blending in with the natural surroundings. Inside the rooms and suites, a polished Western design prevails, with custom wood and leather furnishings that lean towards mid-century-modern, mountain-inspired artwork from local artists and cozy fireplaces, all decked out in warm, neutral palettes that seamlessly merge with the mountain scenery outside the windows. It’s hard to beat capping off a day on the slopes with an exquisite duck confit with huckleberry bison sausage and cannellini bean cassoulet at the Parisian bistro-inspired restaurant, too. Cuddle up, cowboy!
Jackson Hole’s Brentwood Inn is the epitome of log cabin luxe with an eco-edge – the gorgeous structure was constructed from massive 200-year-old reclaimed logs from Yellowstone National Park’s great fire of 1988. Five unique rooms typify the cabin in the woods experience, with design touches like snowshoes, fishing creels, English antiques and lodgepole ladders complementing luxurious amenities like tailored down-filled duvets and extravagant linens.
Moose, elk and mule deer are living their best lives at this luxury lodge and wildlife sanctuary 1,000ft (305m) above the town of Jackson, an anchor town in the Jackson Hole valley overlooking the spectacular Grand Teton mountain range. Combining rustic cowboy culture with modern luxury, Spring Creek Ranch is best described as a lavish lodge, awash in hardwoods and providing all the trappings of an idyllic Rocky Mountain high: an outdoor saltwater hot tub; wood-burning fireplaces in its rooms, townhouses and mountain villas; spa treatments in a tepee; an equestrian center; and so on – all within easy reach of both Grand Teton and Yellowstone National Parks.
