Situated on eight wildlife-filled acres where moose, elk, red-tailed hawks, bald eagles and deer roam and nest, you’d never know Fireside Resort was a mere seven miles from Jackson’s bustling town square. Just south of Grand Teton National Park with views of the Grand Teton Mountain Range from the property, Fireside Resort offers the intimacy of a boutique hotel, the atmosphere of a wooded campground and the ambience of a cozy vacation home.
Bed & Bath
Walk into your personal one-bedroom cabin, designed in a modern rustic style, and any ideas of cowboy kitsch disappear. Constructed from recycled Wyoming snow fence, the sleek structures have gas fireplaces, plush chocolate leather couches and bright contemporary art, all softened by the gnarled exposed wood beams overhead. Each comes with a furnished deck, a full kitchen, and a Tempurpedic pullout couch (in addition to the comfy King-sized bed in the bedroom). HD flat-screen TVs and rain showers add to the contempo-cozy charm.
There is no restaurant or even a central building; most guests cook in their kitchens or eat in nearby restaurants. But the staff can guide you to the top local pros-in-the-know who will assist you in biking, rafting and fly fishing trips in the summer, or skiing and snowmobiling in the winter. The Fireside Resort experience is simple: It’s a comfortable, tucked-away haven to relax, rejuvenate and set up headquarters for all your Jackson adventures. And while it might be tempting to hole up by the fire in your homey pied-à-terre, Yellowstone National Park, Jackson’s saloon-filled downtown and the world-renowned Jackson Hole Mountain Resort are all an easy drive away.
In the Area
Fly over the 305,000 acres of legendary Jackson powder with High Mountain Heli-Skiing to make those first backcountry tracks. Or, explore Yellowstone National Park by snowmobile and enjoy lunch at Geyser Grill as Old Faithful erupts in front of your eyes. In the summer, Jackson’s Snake River is famed for having the strongest population of cutthroat trout in the Rocky Mountain West. Learn to reel them in on one of of Fireside Resort’s own guided fly-fishing trips. The on-site stables and 60 horses make Spring Creek Ranch the perfect place to have a quintessential dude ranch experience — from hour-long trail rides to overnight mountain excursions. Worked up an appetite? Jackson’s pitch-perfect Snake River Grill offers a luxe spin on Wild West dining with dishes like black angus New York strip steak and truffle fries.
How to Get There
Our family of 5 spent 4 nights in the caboose cabin, #22. The cabin was well appointed, plenty of towels, comfortable king sized bed and surprisingly private considering the cabins are sited close together. One morning we had two moose outside our front porch peacefully grazing on the aspen trees. It was an incredible site! Staff is friendly and helped us plan our trip into park.
We had a great time this past weekend. Cabin was clean and amenities were modern. Bathroom and shower were very nice size. Enjoyed the firewood and the fire pit. Loved the cabin! We will be back. Thank you
My wife and I stayed in one of the 1-bedroom mini-houses on our recent anniversary trip to Jackson Hole. Perfect accommodations, with privacy and all the amenities you could need. The staff is awesome and took very good care of us. We unfortunately arrive a day late do to travel problems, but they were very understanding and went out of their way to make us feel welcome and comfortable. Each unit has its own fire-pit. They even give you a bundle of firewood as a welcoming gift when you arrive!
