... of nationalities including: Americans, Australians, Germans, Swiss and of course the English. It was such a fun group to be with! It was a two hour hike up to Inspiration Point. Everyone kept a good pace and were well motivated to reach the top in good time. We made a few stops along the way to enjoy the view. Caught a brief sighting of Hidden Falls before continuing our climb up to Inspiration Point. Once we reached the top the views were incredible and well worth the effort! ...
... made you wonder who lived in this wilderness and then it occurred to me that all this ranch land full of cattle would need a large number of hands to work them.

The park has numerous lakes, including 24 km (15 mile) long Jackson Lake as well as streams of varying length and the upper main stem of the Snake River. Though in a state of recession, a dozen small glaciers persist at the higher elevations near the highest peaks in the range. Some of the rocks in the park are the oldest found in any U.S. National Park and have been dated at nearly 2.7 billion years old.

Back to our campsite where we hung out until the mosquitoes drove us inside. Mosquitoes here is something we are not used to. I guess because it has been wet here this season, there is a bloom going on.

Historical Traveler Reviews Four Seasons Resort Jackson Hole Teton Village
Great location. Excellent Service. Worth the $$
My only knock on the JH Four Seasons is the fact that they offer, in essence, "time share sales" from the hotel. Other than that minor insult, the service, location, room amenities, spa/gym and overall ambience is, to be expected from Four Seasons, first rate.
Ohh, and if you like fresh powder and challenging ski conditions, this is your place.
We will come back to JH yearly.
Nice, very nice place
Great hotel, great location
We loved this hotel. We had wonderful service and found the hotel to beautiful (in an understated western way). We had a package that included lifts and rentals and it made the price not too expensive for what you get. I would stay there again in the winter- ski in/out. For a summer visit staying in Jackson may be more fun but in the winter this can not be beat. Reminds me of Ritz-Carlton Bachalor Gulch.
Superb ski in/ski out hotel
Having skied at many resorts in the USA, our whole round experience at the Four Seasons cannot be beaten. The ski in/ski out location, combined with the fabulous, wonderful, superb ski concierge service, is simply the best. The service at the hotel was second to none and the food, whilst not cheap, was worth the every penny. The outside pool and spa area is incredible - with personal service of hot chocolate and snacks - or try one of the Four Seasons Hot Chocolate cocktails. We are already planning our trip back in 2006.
Love Teton Village
We thought it was a lovely place. Also consider renting a Teton Village Condo at Rendezvous Mountain Rentals.
Good building, bad views, poor location, high prices
This hotel has a fine building, but is located in a down market place, 20 minutes from Jackson, called a "village" with poor views from the rooms and restaurants, very high prices for average food and poor wine and no visible staff aged over about 25. The site is also very tight, jammed up against other buildings and the ski lifts.
Teton Village is a collection of down-market hotels, tatty tourist stores, two ski lifts and a gondola. There is however a fine concert hall. There is nothing about the place to justify calling it a "village", which one would expect to have residents, school and place of worship.
The hotel's main dining room has a very unattractive view of all three lifts. So far as I could tell, few, if any, of the rooms faced the Tetons. Ours looked over a loading bay, car park and houses, with very distant views of hills.
The prices are very high and there are hidden charges for parking. The restaurant's food does not nearly justify the cost - around $225 all-up for two people including a bottle of indifferent wine and a cocktail. The wine list is very short and none of the very young staff knew anything at all about it. There is also what they describe as a "pub", serving drinks and food. The prices here are even sillier than in the restaurant.
We decided to stay there because of our previous experience of other Four Seasons hotels and their fine reputation. Four Seasons are damaging their brand by operating this hotel in this way.
Finally be aware that the hotel admits guests carrying side arms. When I complained about this, to the two front desk people then on duty, one said he hadn't seen it, the other said that carrying firearms was lawful in Wyoming.
First Class Mountain Hotel
The Four Seasons is truly a beautiful hotel with a wonderful settting right at the foot of the mountain. The woodwork throughout the hotel is outstanding. The staff is extremely friendly. Although the bathroom was huge, the room itself with 2 double beds was a little snug. They could use a bit more space on the sides of the beds. The room had a fireplace, however, and the furnishings were top notch. I have stayed at over 20 hotels in the Jackson Hole area, and this is the finest the area has to offer.
Great Staff and Great Facilities
Stayed here for 6 nights in July 2004. While the staff is a mix of career hotel employees and seasonal workers, every employee really made us feel welcome. The hotel made a buffalo cookie with my son's name on it and left it in the room with a cold glass of milk at check in. All rooms have gas fireplaces. The bathrooms are excellent with a large shower and separate soaking tub. Room pictures on the hotel website are accurate. However the balconies are small. Just enough room for two chairs and a very small table. The hotel has an upscale restaurant, a casual restaurant and a separate bar. You can dress casually in any of the three. Food is typical four seasons, good quality, definitely not cheap. You get what you pay for. This hotel only has 144 rooms, so the breakfast buffet has limited selections, but good considering the location. (You are not in Vegas, but 25 minutes from the Grand Tetons!) Room service staff was great. We arrived from a late trip to Yellowstone at 1:00AM. All the restaurants in Jackson were closed. Room service served us happily within 25 minutes. (24 hour room service in a wilderness location is a rarity.) In summary this is a great place to stay if you want to do day trips to the Tetons and Yellowstone, but do not want to rough it. Paid 550 per night as the hotel is always at maximum capacity, there are no deals except for AMEX Platinum deal for free breakfast. I would definitely return, the hotel has done a great job in the limited time it has been open.
Teton Village joins the Big Leagues!
Bravo to the Four Seasons chain for opening up in Teton Village and taking their first dip into a mountain village. This hotel will meet all your expectations. Now I know why they have captured 7 of 30 Mobil 5-Star ratings for lodging. This new four seasons hotel is well on it's way to at least a 4 star rating from Mobil in 2005. Only problem may be the fluctuation of mountain town workers, but they seem to have enough "regulars" to keep the "ski dudes" in place and remind them what chain they are working for. Brought the kids and they were well recieved by the staff and never felt out of place. Spa and fitness center is an experience in itself, well attended and treatments are excellent. Expensive, but worth the plunge. Was wishing we visited in Winter since this is a true ski-in, walk to lifts location. This hotel is a gem that brings true class to the village.
Beautiful Hotel Still Working Out The Kinks
As always, a beautifully designed Four Seasons in a great location. Visited in off season (May) besides the weather being lousy many things were closed in the vicinity of the hotel and staffing was maybe 70%. Hotel is new and staff seemed to still be learning the ropes - service seemed forced and fake many times - like they were reading from the 'FS How To' manual. Once this gets worked out though will be top-notch - rooms and common areas are out of sight. Watch out for the parking charges!
Closest to the lifts at Teton Village
This is the best hotel at Jackson Hole and it should be for the rates they charge. I've stayed at Teton Mountain Lodge and Alpenhof and the Four Seasons is clearly superior. Of course, Teton Mountain Lodge and Alpenhof are fine hotels that cost less. One important notet that you won't find on Expedia, Orbitz, etc: this hotel is literally right next the Bridger Gondola and Teewinot Chairs. Hotel guests can just walk on level ground out the back door of the hotel to the lifts. Snake River Lodge & Spa is also a fancy and expensive slopeside hotel but you have to walk UPHILL a little bit to get to the lifts.
