... we headed into town to buy a few forgotten things and replenish our ice supply. While we were there, a thunderstorm rolled in. The clouds were spectacular. We saw lightening for the first time in a while. E made up her mind that she was terrified of the storm and was insisting that she hide under her bed when we got back to camp. The rain thwarted our plan of another campfire and ...
... to live with such protected peace and tranquility (bar the tourists). Yellowstone had started to feel like a huge safari park where visitors play 'spot the animal'. It was quite an exciting experience as we weren't sure what we would see next! Moving on. We passed more and more bison and started to feel a little less excited by this sight; we wanted to see some wolves or bears, but all we kept spotting was bison. After a while, the bison could have been cows, there were that ...

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.
Worth every cent - treat yourself!
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.
I can't say enought about the included breakfast provided each day in the gathering room. There was a buffet of breads, fruit and cold cereal and then you could order just about anything hot you wanted from the open kitchen. The specials (which changed every day) were scrumptious and ranged from hot cereals to apple clafouti to egg scrambles with smoked salmon or chorizo. Every afternoon there were fresh, hot cookies or brownies and every evening there was coffee,tea and hot chocolate on the second floor landing.
The Rusty Parrot is far from inexpensive, but for an intimate, well appointed hotel, with a staff that bends over backwards to be accomodating without even trying...and succeeds beyond expectations, you can't do better. It's location is just a few short blocks from the town square and is perfect for a walk after a great dinner at one of the many terrific Jackson restaurants. We look forward to returning to the Rusty Parrot.
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.
