In Teton Village, just a short walk from the slopes
Teton Village is a tiny place with limited attractions -- there are a few restaurants around the immediate area, though most people come here in the winter (when prices soar) to ski the challenging slopes of Jackson Hole Resort, which is just a short walk away.
In recent years Teton Village has started 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.
The 132-room Hotel Terra is a trendy, eco-friendly ski lodge that offers a nice break from the often-standard mountain-lodge decor found in other area hotels. The lobby has the characteristic fireplaces and antler-adorned walls, but they're complemented by pops of color and modern furniture. The rooms are sleek, with flat-screen TVs, iPod docks, free Wi-Fi, and organic toiletries in the bathrooms (complete with heated floors), though standard rooms are a bit cramped. Perhaps most importantly, the hotel is just a short walk from the slopes and has on-site ski rentals and a ski valet. But it feels a little more geared toward couples than families, and lacks some of the kid-friendly amenities you'll find at the Four Seasons.
