Hotel Terra Jackson Hole, A Noble House Resort strikes an ideal balance between luxury and crunchiness. It’s a completely modern hotel that’s LEED certified. Nontoxic paints and carpets, low-flow water fixtures, the use of reclaimed or sustainable woods throughout, 100 percent organic mattresses, in-room recycling — the list goes on. The décor also takes its cues from its surroundings with sunset-hued walls, striking wildlife photography and natural textures, from rough-hewn woods to cowhide.
Bed & Bath
Rooms have a cozy, clean-lined modernism with dark wood headboards, moss green blankets and cowhide lamps. Flat-screen TVs and iPod docking stations are standard; most rooms have gas fireplaces. All have oversized picture windows looking onto stunning Jackson Hole views. Double vanity bathrooms have deep-soak tub-shower combos.
There’s no more indulgent way to unwind after a long day of hiking or skiing than with a soak in the sexy slopeside hot tub. Follow that up with a massage and a eucalyptus steam at the Chill Spa, which overlooks the Tetons. Then settle in for wood-oven pizzas, antipasti and some bottles from the stellar wine list at the hotel’s Il Villagio Osteria. Out of the seven luxury lodges in Teton Village at the base of Jackson Hole Mountain Resort, the eco-chic Hotel Terra is the youngest and undoubtedly the coolest, so you don’t have to leave the hotel to be in the middle of the scene.
In the Area
The Snake River flows through the Jackson Hole valley and its twists and turns can accommodate everything from adrenaline-pumping whitewater rafting to chilled out floats to fly fishing. Head to nearby Yellowstone National Park for hiking in the summer and for showshoeing and dog-sledding in the winter. At night it’s all about indulgence, whether you want a romantic fondue dinner by a roaring fire at the Bavarian-style Alpenhof Lodge in Teton Village, nouveau American fare at Couloir or a rowdy Western time at Million Dollar Cowboy Bar in Jackson, where the barstools are saddles and country/bluegrass bands jam nightly.
How to Get There
We (husband and teen son) loved the location of Hotel Terra. Very convenient to all activities and sightseeing. I really loved working with the concierge team and a special shout out to Natalie Mc Branch who helped me plan my vacation weeks in advance of arrival and booked my activities. With her help we created a great itinerary, from Fly fishing to white water rafting, to Dusk Wild Life safari, an epic guided tour day in Yellowstone National Park, rodeo, chuckwagon dinner, bike riding, hiking paths and dinner reservations. All the vendors were great and Natalie was responsive and truly attentive to our needs. The hotel hot tub was great to use after our active days
I'd recommend Hotel Terra and Jackson Hole for a active summer vacation spot!
First visit and was slightly disappointed.Facilities and room was clean and spacious. Upgraded to a suite and view of parking lot nor worth the extra charges. Service was average with the staff breaking a wine glass into the sink when first arriving. Clean up was poor with small particles of glass found throughout the stay. Also no secure facilities for bike storage and we inquired about air compressor to fill bike tires. We were told they would be filled and the next morning were still flat. Would not repeat the experience.
Our family of five stayed here for 3 nights. Hector, the manager, was incredibly nice and accommodating! The rooms are nice, clean, and comfortable. The ONLY partly negative part is the rooms are a bit small, but hopefully you won’t be hanging in the room too much. Just out the back door of the hotel is biking, ropes course, dining, bungee, rock wall, and shopping. Great hotel with tons to do!
We stayed at Terra when they first opened, and just returned this summer. Getting a small suite was perfect for our family. Having the fully kitchen is ideal for a long stay. We were able to keep snacks, groceries, and leftovers in the fridge, and not have to go out for every meal while traveling. The kitchen is stocked with plates, pots, pans, cheese grater, toaster, etc - whatever you might need. There is a dishwasher so you can take of of what you've used and not wait for someone to turn the room over. Relaxing by the fireplace in a chilly day, or taking a book to the balcony on a warm day is the perfect way to rest and rejuvenate while in the mountains. We enjoy walking through the village, and Terra is an ideal location - being right in the middle of it all. There is a playground (for small children) right outside and a splash pad in the summer. You can view the gondola going up and down the mountain from your balcony. Free self-park right in front of the hotel. The pool is on floor three (lots of lounge chairs to sit in and read a book, or to just soak in the Teton view), and hot tub on the top floor. In the room, it's very clean, comfy bed, black-out shades for sleeping, and the suites have a very nice sitting area. You can open the windows to get the fresh mountain air in the room. Staying at Terra you are so close (on the back road) to get to Teton National Park, and around a 20 min drive to Jackson, giving you quick access to the park, as well as shopping and dining in town (don't forget you can also find restaurants in Wilson and in the village too). Each floor has washers and dryers (complimentary), so you can lighten the amount you pack, and do a quick load of laundry while hanging out in your room. Ask at the front desk for complimentary detergent, softener, etc, as well as other items if you need them. Terra is our mountain happy place, and we can't wait to return!
Let me make two points from the start. 1)I am not a chronic TA complainer. Normally I write careful and often rave reviews. I rely on the TA community for candor, so I'm doing my part here. 2)The staff is lovely, notably Murilla at the front desk. And housekeeping, concierge et al couldn't have been nicer. That said: We paid nearly $450 for a room that was not much bigger than the size of the king bed; husband and I kept having to move to let the other pass around. We were on the side of a noisy hostel, when I had asked for a quiet location. After 7 a.m. there is no coffee, tea, water you name it in the lobby...no cookies, no fruit, nothing gracious. And our keurig machine in the room was broken. They charged $4 for the bottle of water in our room in a high altitude climate where you must drink a lot of water (note to guests: go to any of the general stores in the Village and the price of bottled water drops sharply); they plopped a stuffed animal on the bed--cute!--with a note that you can pay $22 if you want it. One day the gym had no towels. (Note to those with bad backs: no recumbent exercyles here, though they've got a Peloton?) Another day the gym had no cups for the water dispenser. The outdoor pool (none indoors) is not big enough for lap swimming. The closet has a peculiar, illogical design re the lights. The price does NOT include breakfast. Everything is extra. ...Was it clean? Yes. But it was utterly unremarkable. Phenomenally overpriced. I have stayed at Marriott Residence Inns that were less than half the price with three times the amenities. I have stayed at wonderful inns, etc that were comparable in price and felt absolutely worth the splurge. Here?There was nothing about the experience here that felt "special," or "luxurious" or remotely exciting or fun...It was deeply perfunctory. And felt like such a ripoff.
