Rusty Parrot Lodge and Spa
Travel Blogs from Jackson
We had a great Holiday out west. The girls learned to ski, very well. We went to Cadilac Cafe, the Silver Dollar, Tijuana Garage Snow mobiling in Yosemite National Park and saw Ol' Faithful. We went mushing with a dog team through the woods along a stream - This was an experience! We toured the Elk Refuge, saw elk right up close and a bald eagle.
The last few days have been busy, with SO much to cram in - two National Parks, Grand Teton and Yellowstone. The Tetons are majestic and beautiful whilst Yellowstone is vast and peppered with geysers, mudholes, hot springs and other thermal and volcanic wonders. However if we never see another pine tree again...there are millions of them in Yellowstone and driving for miles past them can be hypnotic! Old Faithful geyser lived up to its name and was accurate within a ...
... hot springs. The drive was dusty, but the grey mountains with green trees against the blue sky made up for it. Once we got to the hot spring (GraniteSprings) we walked up a dirt path above a running creek through some trees a reached a cabin and a fenced in pool. The pool was surrounded on one side by grey rock, and the other side was mountains, trees, and bright skies. The water felt warm at first, but I fell in and the ...
... of laundry. We went to dinner at a restaurant in town and Riche had elk and I had rainbow trout. Then we went to the Jackson Hole Rodeo ... yahoo! It was a fun night. This was the first rodeo the kids had attended and they had lots of questions. Jackson couldn't understand why they wanted to rope the young bulls and make them fall down. I said it's a cowboy thing ... we probably can't understand it. ...
... As you can imagine, Ethan is thrilled at the attention. And so it is time for the Chuckwagon dinner. When we arrive, we have to queue and get a ticket for ribs, chicken or beef. We are not seated around a fire nor do we go anywhere in trail wagons as you might expect. Instead we are seated in a huge barn - our neighbours are four lovely girls who are from Salt Lake City and are on a senior break before they start college. It all seems mega touristy ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Rusty Parrot Lodge and Spa Jackson
This place rules!
This is by far and away one of the best lodges I have ever stayed in. Great service, hospitality, ambience, food, and overall just wonderful. Worth it from the warm, comfy rooms to the the lovely breakfasts, to the cozy rooftop hot tub -- particularly nice during the winter. We'll be back here soon.
i generally agree with the positive reviews here and don't wish to be redundant. however, one plus that is overlooked is the location. its across from a nice park, on the edge of town and away from the hustle and bustle of the main drag. jackson traffic and crowds can be surprisely
annoying particularly for one from a metro area seeking solitude. additionally, if all the perks are considered, i think it is inaccurate to characterize it as pricey. my room rate included afternoon beverages and a first rate breakfast. considering the quality and great service, i consider the price reasonable.
My husband and I stayed at the Red Parrot in June, and left feeling like every penny spent was worth it. We don't normally treat ourselves, so it was such a delight to arrive in the room to find ripe, juicy apples waiting on our desk and a soft, cuddly stuffed bear perched on the bed that we promptly named and took home. The breakfast still lingers in our conversations all these months later - the most amazing eggs and belgian waffles we've ever savored. The bed was like melting into a cloud, and the linens were so soft that we asked the manager for the manufacturer so we could buy a set, and she happily gave us the information. The bathroom was even stunning in heavy rustic marble and rich wood cabinetry! Located close to everything downtown, but perfectly private, there is NO BETTER place to stay in Jackson Hole. The best!
Worth Every Penny!
Just returned from a stay at the Rusty Parrot in Jackson, Wyoming. This is a first-rate guest house. No detail is overlooked. The room was lovely, the service impeccable, and the food delicious. From laying a fire to dinner reservations, every request is handled with charm and grace.
Yes, it's expensive, but worth every penny. A great way to end a visit to Yellowstone and Grand Teton National Parks.
We stayed at the Rusty Parrot Lodge from August 25 - August 28, 2004. This small hotel was one of the nicest places we have ever stayed. The rooms were large, well appointed and the staff was amongst the most accomodating I have ever encountered. Due to circumstances, we needed an extra room on the second day of our stay and they were able to accomodate our needs. The front desk staff was also right there when we needed dining recommendations and reservations.
When you want to live a little.......
this is the place to stay in the town of Jackson. Large, comfortable rooms, fully stocked bathrooms, and funny bears on each bed. A full breakfast is included and has everything! Fresh fruit, breads, breakfast cakes, and made-to-order omelets or eggs any way you wish. There are also specials every morning such as waffles, etc. Late in the afternoon they put coffee, tea, and homemade cookies out in their library which opens on to a wonderful deck with a hot tub. Their restaurant is top notch for dinner. They have a spa which we didn't use. Great location, great service!
The Best Hotel!
My husband and I stayed here for 2 nights in mid June. It was one of the best hotels we have ever been in. Thr rooms wee wonderful, the breakfasts incredibly delicious and the staff seemed to know eveything we wanted before we asked for it.
I can't wait to go back. Worth every penny.
Wonderful Staff and Food!
My wife and I recently stayed here and loved it. The rooms are comfortable and the staff is fantastic. If you get a chance, eat at the Wild Sage which is easily one of the best restaurants in town. Although you give up a view of the Tetons by staying downtown, you gain the convenience of being able to walk everywhere. We definitely plan on staying there again.
Best hospitallity in Jackson Hole
We had a great time. The hospitallity was great everyone welcoming from the moment that you arrived to the time you left. The food was fantastic. Breakfast was incruding and it was great, evey morning was omlets, crepes, or french toast. The rooms were very well decorated and the beds very comfortable with down comforters and pillowtops on the beds.
Worth every penny!
Don't stay anywhere else!!!
We wouldn't stay anywhere else in Jackson Hole!!! What a treat! "Over the top" hospitality! And big Kudos to the chefs for the 5 star dining experience!!! You feel like you are in a cozy chalet and are catered to on every level. Location is excellent too! Worth every penny and then some.
