On a quiet road in Teton Village, about a 15-minute drive to downtown Jackson, but within walking distance to Jackson Hole Mountain Resort
Located on a quiet road in Teton Village -- a small town about five miles north of Jackson -- a few restaurants are within walking distance, and the base of Jackson Hole Mountain Resort is just steps away. Meanwhile, the entrance to Grand Teton National Park lies only a mile away, and some of the park's best spots are within a 30-minute drive. Yellowstone National Park is about an hour's drive north.
Jackson Hole, near the Wyoming's western border with Idaho, is a low-lying valley surrounded by mountains that are frequently used for various outdoor activities, like hiking, biking, and skiing. It's also home to Wyoming's busiest commercial airport, Jackson Hole Airport. Grand Teton National Park encompasses most of the valley of Jackson Hole, and various wildlife roam the area, including moose, deer, antelope, elk, and grizzly bears. Although skiing is the area's main draw, some other attractions can be found in town, like a few steakhouses, bistros, and bars.
In keeping with its name, Teton Mountain Lodge's 145 condo-style rooms and common areas have a distinct mountain-lodge vibe. If the rooms weren't amply supplied with up-to-date amenities such as flat-screen TVs, iPod docks, and new appliances in the kitchens, you might feel as if you were staying in your own remote log cabin. Being that most nearby restaurants and bars are expensive, the full kitchens in most rooms (all but the Lodge Room) help to combat the high prices. The whole hotel is cozy, including the beautiful lobby, with its two tall, towering stone fireplaces and exposed wooden beams. All guests have full access to the Solitude Spa facilities: two pools, five Jacuzzis (great for sore post-ski muscles), steam rooms, and a nicely equipped fitness center.
