Hidden near Wyoming’s rushing Snake River at the foothills of glorious Grand Teton National Park lies an idyllic four-season destination: Teton Village, home to one of the world’s most prestigious ski mountains. The region offers so much more than “just” fresh powder, rugged mountains, and 130-plus world-class ski trails. Nature enthusiasts, thrill-seekers, and casual adventurers alike will discover that Teton Village is sublimely positioned at the Grand Teton’s front door, where hiking, horseback riding, fly fishing, and mountain biking excursions naturally transpire. There’s never been a more suitable time to research, book, and plan a secluded, undeniably stirring escape to the United States’ least-populated state. And there’s no better place to start and finish each day of outdoor recreation, fine dining, and utter relaxation than at Garnet Lodge, Teton Village’s crown jewel.
Teton Village’s Finest Vacation Home: Garnet Lodge
Elite Destination Homes has lavish vacation rentals all across the globe, and this sophisticated Grand Teton lodge remains the crème de la crème among ski homes near Jackson Hole’s genuinely head-turning Rendezvous Mountain. Most skiers and snowboarders find their mouths agape when they first spot this world-renowned mountain. But the truth is that Garnet Lodge itself is equally spellbinding, with its colossal fireplace, sparkling chandelier, overlong oriental rug, and oversized bay windows. The architecture and decor are both exceedingly sleek and modern, while also maintaining an ode to Wyoming’s 70s-style lodges that swept through the region several decades ago. Yes, winter is a “peak” season for travelers here in Teton Village, but autumn’s golden radiance and summer’s idyllic temperatures allure an array of shrewd travelers that value soundless mountain valleys just as much as cosmopolitan luxuries.
Explore Grand Tetons National Park
As mentioned earlier, Garnet Lodge, as well as a variety of classic Wyoming luxury homes, lies at the southern rim of Grand Teton National Park. The Grand Tetons are often overlooked because of neighboring Yellowstone National Park, which, in its own right, is one of the world’s true visual marvels. That being said, the Tetons are equally stunning, much less crowded, and only 1/14th of the size, allowing visitors to cover a great deal of territory in only three of four days. Again, Teton Village is quite literally a stone’s throw from the national park, where you’ll discover some of the best fly fishing in the country, as well as horseback riding, whitewater rafting, and, of course, countless hikes to many of the state’s most picturesque locales. We’re partial to Cascade Canyon, Delta Lake, Hidden Falls, and Colter Bay.
An Authentic Jackson Hole Rodeo
Before we let you go, it’s vital to mention our neighbors to the south in historic Jackson Hole, home to the West’s wildest rodeo. The rodeo is as old as the town itself, which boasts a modest population of approximately 10,400 people. Attending the Jackson Hole Rodeo is a rite of passage (for lack of a better phrase) for those who visit the region during the summer months. In the weeks surrounding Christmas, skiers race down the mountain en route to this well-lit village to spread some holiday cheer! Oh, and the National Museum of Wildlife Art is equally thought-provoking and aesthetically brilliant.
