1. Well-appointed rooms

The comfortable and well-appointed rooms are equipped with everything necessary for an excellent stay. The comfortable queen bed with a twin pillow top mattress and high thread count sheets is perfect for a good night’s rest. Plus, you can even book a room with your own fireplace. Talk about pumping up the vibe! The room darkening blinds can be closed to ensure that the morning sun does not shine and you can sleep well in the morning.

In the living room area, there is plenty of space to relax on the pull-out sofa bed or put your feet up on the gigantic ottoman. The kids in your life will love snuggling up on the sofa and feeling at home away from home. The smart fridge is close at hand and the large 50-inch smart TV is prominently displayed, so they’ll have everything they need right at their fingertips.

For those who need to get some work done, you can stretch out on the executive desk and send all those emails over the fast, free Wi-Fi. And, no worries if you can’t make time for coffee downstairs before an early morning conference call. You can have all the caffeine you want without leaving your room with personal in-room Keurig coffee makers.

After a day on the slopes or trails, the relaxing rain shower with traditional shower head will be appreciated. The clean lines of the glass shower give the tub a modern look. The spa feeling continues with premium bottles of shampoo, conditioner and body wash.

And, if you plan to skip the long lines at the park, you’ll really appreciate the convenience of the small, in-room smart fridge. Large enough to hold all your picnic essentials, you’ll save time and money by taking what you need to the store and keeping it all in your room for each outing of the day. Any lunch leftovers are easily taken out of the cooler and stored in the fridge for the next day, or reheated for dinner in your in-room microwave.

Pro tip: Ask the reception to prepare a lunch box for your busy days in the park!

Jackson is known to be a bit pricey, so it pays to save up wherever you can. Your breakfast is included with your stay here and it’s one less expense for you and the family. If you’re traveling with children, you know that breakfast for the whole crew can really put a dent in your wallet. The Lodge at Jackson Hole is to the rescue!

You’ll find all this and more in the deluxe breakfast served each morning. The whole family will find plenty to satisfy their morning cravings. With Starbucks coffee included in the buffet, what’s not to love? My favorite item might be the blueberry yogurt parfait!
