This mountain town is chock-full of luxe lodgings, but Rustic Inn stands out for its idyllic setting. The inn’s outdoorsy amenities include teepees, a boardwalk that winds above a wetland, creekside swinging benches and multiple firepits. But for all the natural splendor surrounding it, the inn is just five blocks from downtown Jackson and it’s a convenient basecamp for exploring the town’s charms, escaping to Grand Teton or Yellowstone national parks, or shredding Jackson Hole Mountain Resort. Well-manicured paths wind around the outdoor heated pool toward Flat Creek and the 28 cozy log cabins. Guestrooms are done in an off-white, maroon and brown palette and accented with plush carpeting, wrought iron light fixtures, leather ottomans, cowboy prints, and dark wood furniture. Their best feature is the private deck, where guests can settle into a swing or Adirondack chair and watch deer, moose and other wildlife wander about. Come morning, fuel up with the extensive full breakfast buffet: fresh pastries, scrambled eggs with basil and cheese, fruit juices, bacon, fresh fruit and yogurt, before heading out.
In the Area
Both Jackson Hole Mountain Resort, a 20-minute drive away, have hiking trails — at least until it starts snowing. Starting in mid-December, take a horse-drawn sleigh ride into the middle of a herd of 8,000 elk at the National Elk Refuge. Elk begin migrating into the refuge, which is literally across the street from the Rustic Inn, as soon as the snow starts to fall. Year-round BrushBuck Guide Services offers half- and full-day wildlife safaris around the valley; you’re likely to see bison, moose, birds of prey, coyotes and, if you’re lucky, wolves and grizzly. The National Museum of Wildlife Art takes a broad view of the genre. The museum’s 5,000-item permanent collection includes the expected Rungiuses, as well as Audubons, and also some Picassos and Maurice Sendaks. Wander over to Jackson’s town square and check out traditional Western and wildlife art at Trailside Galleries, contemporary art at Diehl Gallery, or designer togs at Terra.
How to Get There
I loved this place i would definitely comeback. Customer service is awesome and the view is amazing, well atleast for me that i come from arizona and we dont have green nor ice. The little town has everything you need. Some heads up. Is dangerous to drive when its snowing in the mountains.
Initially I had some reservations about staying in individual log cabins, but when we arrived and walked into our cabin, what a great surprise...not only meticulously clean but also an immediate luxury feeling takes over. Great accommodations with high end furnishings and super comfortable beds. The Rustic Inn is located within an easy 10 minute walk in to the center of town providing great restaurants and shopping. On site hotel restaurant was great and the morning breakfast buffet is something not to be missed.
I would like to say that this place is rustic, folksy with all the perks and frivolities included. The team of people who work there are delightful. They must have a super wonderful boss. Enjoy your stay
We have stayed here now a few times. It has always been an off season stay so the resort was quite and the bistro was not open, so cannot comment on the bistro. We stayed in a King cabin. These are lovely rooms. Since they stand as independant structures they are quite and there is no way you will hear your neigbors. The rooms are very comfortable & a good size. The only thing I did not like was the pillows too high for me. Breakfast is good. Even in the off season with very few guests there was a full choice for breakfast. The chief made a great omelet to my order and is a very pleasant person. Walking distance to downtown resaurants for dinner. Check in staff very firendly and efficient. Enjoyed our stay there very much.
We stayed here on a bus tour of National Parks. The Inn was truly a delight after a long day of travel. The rooms were individual log cabins that were very modern and well done. The staff were very helpful and friendly - couldn't ask for better.Dinner at the Inn was also very good - since we were there in September we enjoyed the outdoors
