A boutique base for mountain adventure in Grand Teton National Park and Wild West fun in authentic Jackson
Jackson has traditionally been the province of dated motels at the edge of town, but the Rusty Parrot stands as the in-town outpost of upscale lodging. The hotel evokes the feel of the grand lodges of the Adirondacks, with exposed hand-hewn wood and stone, a roaring fireplace that greets you in the lobby, an attentive staff (the front desk is often manned by the owner) and a fantastic spa.
Bed and Bath
Each room at the Rusty Parrot is unique, but all have the finest linens, plush towels, soft terry robes and slippers, L’Occitane bath amenities, flat-screen satellite television and free wireless Internet. Baths have large, deep tubs for soaking after a day spent rambling through the mountains.
While other ski towns attempt to reinvent themselves as four-season destinations, Jackson doesn’t have to. With the exception of a few slow weeks in April and May, it’s one of the only top ski towns that’s just as busy in summer (if not more so), when it’s a major gateway to Yellowstone National Park and Grand Teton National Park. Grand Teton was recently enhanced by an enormous donation of land between the ski resort and the park entrance that makes it even bigger — and closer than ever.
