Right by the lifts in Teton Village, a tiny resort at the base of Jackson Hole Mountain
The Alpenhof Lodge is located as close to the chairlifts as you can possibly get while staying in Jackson Hole. Teton Village is a tiny place with few attractions -- there are a few restaurants around the immediate area. Most people come here in the winter (when prices soar) to ski the challenging slopes of Jackson Hole Resort, and there’s little to do besides enjoying the great views and the charm of a mountain village.
Teton Village is starting to become a real ski resort town, with more dining options and spas than a few years ago -- but it’s also alive during the summer, when families and outdoor types come to this side of Snake River to enjoy the rafting trips and hard-to-beat views.
This no-frills 42-room ski lodge, with its wood-panel walls, worn carpeting, dated furniture, and occasional cheesy design touches, feels like it could have belonged in the Swiss Alps two decades ago. But the location, just steps away from ski lifts, is hard to beat. The outdoor pool and Jacuzzi are huge pluses, but the great freebies are what could definitely tip the scale if you’re looking for a good value: free hearty breakfast, free Wi-Fi, free parking, and free fondue parties in the winter. Just don’t expect a luxurious stay -- for that you may want to consider nearby, often comparably priced Teton Mountain Lodge.
