Family-Friendly Lodge With Convenient Access to Ski Resorts and National Parks
Throughout the 1950s and 1960s, a group of local businessmen fashioned hundreds of elk antlers into four vaulting sculptures in the center of Jackson, Wyoming. Today, those antler arches mark the corners of the tree-lined Town Square and are a fitting symbol of the town’s status as a gateway to untapped wilderness. Located downtown, Jackson Hole Lodge makes a convenient base for exploring the region—it's just minutes from Yellowstone and Grand Teton National Park, and only four blocks from the Town Square, a popular spot for shopping and riding stagecoaches.
The lodge’s lounge evokes Jackson’s western atmosphere with its knotty pine paneling and stone fireplace with a log mantle. Rooms sleep up to four guests and many activities make this inn a family-friendly destination. After a day spent exploring the national parks, you can come back to the hotel and watch a complimentary movie from the hotel's film library, connected to the high-speed WiFi, take a dip in the indoor pool, or relax in the sauna.
Offsite activities range from fishing and rafting to skiing on a variety of runs and open bowls, depending on the season. The lodge’s staff can help set up trips, recommend trails, and otherwise facilitate excursions in the Jackson Hole valley.
Highlights of Jackson, Wyoming
- Town square: Old-fashioned saloons and high-end galleries line this charming center of town
- Two national parks: Grand Teton National Park is just a few miles north, and Yellowstone National Park—home to Old Faithful, herds of bison, and its own grand canyon—is a short day trip away.
- Why visit in Spring: As the snows begin to melt in May, the rivers swell and fill with rapids. There are about a dozen rafting outfitters in Jackson that run whitewater trips on the Snake River and scenic floats on a calmer stretch upstream..
- National Elk Refuge: This conversation area borders downtown Jackson, and spring is when a multitude of birds migrate to the area.
