Jackson Hole’s Spring Creek Ranch sports contemporary Western decor in lieu of loud cowboy kitsch. The soaring wood and iron structure, with a copper-framed fireplace, is set off by view-framing floor-to-ceiling windows. Soft, cognac-colored leather armchairs are as inviting as the staff, whose professionalism strikes the right balance between sophisticated service and warm Western hospitality.
Bed and Bath
Ranging from inn-like cabin studios to full-blown mountain houses, each of the 123 living spaces has an unobstructed view of dramatic Grand Teton peak, the jewel in the range’s rugged crown. These luxe getaways, constructed from fir, spruce, and lodgepole pine, seamlessly blend into their alpine environment and are kitted out with a wood-burning fireplace and private terrace.
The ranch is situated on a 1,000-acre wildlife sanctuary where moose, elk, red-tailed hawks, bald eagles, buffalo and antelope roam and nest. Explore Spring Creek’s expansive grounds by snowshoeing up and over the butte with an on-site naturalist, or, for a more relaxed approach, hop on a horse-drawn sleigh — especially romantic at night. Finish the day with a massage that uses products made from local alpine juniper and cypress. Meals are served at the Granary, a spectacular dining room built into the cliff, with walls of windows framing the mountains. In warmer months, sit around the firepit for s’mores and an astronomy lesson.
In the Area
While there’s plenty to keep you occupied on-site, a trip to nearby Yellowstone National Park, Jackson’s saloon-filled downtown or the world-renowned Jackson Hole Ski Resort are just a free shuttle ride away. Adventure-seekers can hover over the 305,000 acres of legendary Jackson terrain with High Mountain Heli-Skiing. Don’t miss downtown’s pitch-perfect Snake River Grill, with its luxe spin on Wild West dining and melt-in-your-mouth dessert soufflés. Explore Yellowstone by snowmobile and enjoy a lunch of hearty beef stew as Old Faithful erupts before your eyes. Each year, Jackson Hole’s slopes and backcountry bowls get about 500 inches of fresh powder, ideal for days of schussing.
How to Get There
My wife and I came here for our 38th wedding anniversary. We stayed in room 2207. The property gave us a bouquet of roses for our anniversary. We were thrilled with that gesture and looked forward to a fantastic vacation. The view from our cabin of the Grand Tetons was amazing. We got to the room, and it was 12 degrees. We found out the heater in the bathroom did not work. We called and they sent someone over to look at it. He said it needed a new part. My wife asked , can you at least bring us a space heater. He did, but it was still freezing in the bathroom to take a shower or bath. The sad thing is nobody ever checked back with us to let us know what was going on. So the whole week we had to make do with a little space heater to try to help warm the bathroom. Also the last night of our stay, the smoke alarms kept going off when we had a fire in the fireplace. It could be soot has started to clog the chimney. Again phenomenal view, the attention to detail was lacking.
Emily the Wrangler lead us on a wonderful trail ride, up to the crest of a sagebrush covered ridge. The view of the Tetons at the top was breathtaking. Emily pointed out a moose down below that I would have missed. Peak Experience that I will remember for a long time. Thank You.
We enjoyed our stay at Spring Creek Ranch.
The location was just right for us being about 10 minutes out of town.
We stayed here for the views which did not disappoint.
The rooms were nice but not what I would expect for the amount of money paid.
Our room had a little porch, fireplace and standard amenities.
We ate breakfast at the Granary restaurant every day. The breakfasts were ok but it was worth it for the views.
