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
Great location between Jackson and Teton Village. High prices based on location. All hookups worked well - we had a 50 amp site. Cable and WIFI worked well. Site was level gravel with grass and shade. Cabin out front looked nice. Friendly staff, all seemed helpful.
Nothing in Jackson Hole is inexpensive. This lovely spot is no exception but when you compare it to the price of the Motel 6 in Jackson (I’ve stayed there and simple, nice and clean), the cost is more in perspective.
The setting is quiet, lovely and quaint. The “cabin” is great with a grill and a dishwasher! Very cool! There is an outdoor fire pit for a nice evening by the fire!
The bathroom and shower is a multi-jet happiness after a long day of hiking or running. It was a place far beyond my expectations. It also made me think about how little space a person really needs to be comfortable.
There are TVs in the cabin which I never used. I did use the WiFi which seemed to have reasonable bandwidth. There is a small grocery store within 2 miles of the resort.
The back end of the resort is an RV Park. There are some huge RVs which will pass by in the afternoons, but most seem to arrive by early evening. And everyone seems to enjoy the quiet mornings.
There is a hot tub nearby but I did not avail myself. The cabin shower was great!
Go and let your self be in Jackson Hole. You will be happy here!!
So we didn’t actually stay here because we booked a larger venue for a family of 6. We did drive through last night and will book on our next visit! It is amazing and very cozy! The cabins are very modern and the layout is incredibly neat. There is a fire pit shared between the cabins. As we drove through a few curtains were pulled (we’re really not creepy..lol). The inside layout looked like it had a full kitchen and living area up front. We assumed a bedroom in the back. If you are hesitating to book...just do it! We will on our next visit!
- this was our first time to Jackson, Wy :) please read all below for details! :)
- photos from their website of the wedge cabin are accurate!
- upon planning our trip, we looked for a place with a cabin-feel but the luxury of amenities beyond your typical campout :)
- this was a perfect size for us, a young couple
- the cabin had a small main room with a cute gas-fireplace and kitchenette; great bathroom; and one bedroom.
- Kitchenette = sink, microwave, two range electric stove top, tea-kettle, coffee pot (only coffee was included in our room), small refrigerator, plates/bowls/glasses/mugs, utensils, salt/pepper, and dish soap. We loved the kitchenette! We enjoyed getting supplies from the local grocery and cook/prepare meals throughout our trip to save money.
- great control of temperature in each room - fireplace for small main room and a thermostat in the bathroom and bedroom.
- the shower was great! wonderful water pressure and great temperature control! also, included shampoo, conditioner, and bath soap (great as I forgot to pack any of those!). Hairdryer and lotion included as well. Plenty of towels and washcloths.
- there is housekeeping available if you would like for $35/day; we did not participate in this but sounds great if need it!
- great location! it was only about 20 minutes into town to Albertson's Grocery Store (where we got all of our grocery items, bear spray, sunscreen, etc.) and 10 minutes to the entry of the Grand Teton National Park. It is a longer drive to Yellowstone but we loved going through Grand Teton to get to Yellowstone. (**We recommend purchase the entry for both parks on your first day, for us it was $50 and good for 7 days, keep the receipt** as you use that to enter either national park)
- there is a t.v. in the small main room and bedroom.
- the cabins are right next to each other but once inside you feel like you isolated. There is a small area to make a bonfire -- and your first set of wood/starter free!
- we did not explore the RV area so we cannot comment if this would really be a place if you plan to try and stay at the site for most of the day --- our days often included waking up early, meal prep sandwiches for lunch, grabbing protein/granola bar, out all day hiking/driving, and return home in late evening to eat/shower/relax/sleep.
- Matt was really great! He called me to let me know when the office itself was closing ... since our flight came in late that night (about 8:40 pm), he left the lights on and key in our cabin which was easy for check in. Also, check out is really easy - just drop your key off at the office before 11am.
- wi-fi is available but must comment can be spotty at times -- may take some time to upload an instagram but can be done! :) FaceTime may be a bit more difficult but with patience can also be done :)
- there is a hot tub on site. we did not use this but did see others using it.
- We would recommend this place to anyone! :) again, cabin feel but luxury amenities for a memorable experience! We loved it for out needs - place to meal prep, enjoy a good shower after a long day of hiking/driving, and experience a good sleep.
Clean site with hook ups. Great showers and clean bathroom and laundry facilities. Friendly and accommodating. Beautiful country. Lots of moose. Highly recommend. Easy to find. Close to town. Great recycling bins. Great family camping.
