... John isn’t a reader and wouldn’t do well sitting that long. So after a day or two, he gets the itch, and we have to move on. He just doesn’t know how to relax; at least like I do. Give me a good book and beautiful scenery and I’m happy.
(John) At the Colter Bay Campground I met a guy who trailered along a 1920’s speedster roadster as a get around vehicle. It was pretty cool. He made the roadster himself ...
Tuesday was our day in the Grand Tetons. The park is laid out north to south from Yellowstone to Jackson (aka Jackson Hole - the famous ski resort town) with the mountains to the west and a main road alongside Jackson Lake and the Snake River on the east. We headed out from the campground in Yellowstone at 0900 (we always try to get off earlier but we almost always depart at 0900 on the nose). I forgot to mention yesterday that we crossed the Continental Divide yesterday when we got to ...
The Plan- Ethan's ninth birthday today - need I say more. What really happened- Fortunately we are not eaten by bears in the night. We have to get up early today to get to the place for white water rafting. Andy has brought some presents for Ethan with him (Lego as usual) and Ethan is really excited and surprised, marvelling at how we have managed to get him something in the wilderness (don't you love the wonder of children) None of us have been whitewater ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Spring Creek Ranch Jackson
Spring Creek is a resort in the ranch-style and sits 1,000 feet above the valley floor on 1,000 acres. The views are the very best you can get of the Teton Mountain Range. Accomodations are nice. The hotel room I was in had just been remodeled. The restaurant was excellent. Great food and very good service. The views from the restaurant are memorable. The ranch will be 25 years old in 2005 and is offering 25% off their rack rates in January and they have a great Fall Promotion that includes breakfast, dinner and accomodations for 2ppl at $190.00 per night and their Wilderness Adventure Spa is offering incredible prices during November ($90.00 for 1hr hot-stone massage). I had one and it was the best massage I have had anywhere!
we had a 2-bedroom condominium. although the carpet was dirty, the condo was a great place to
My family and I stayed at Spring Creek Ranch from August 28 to September 2, 2004. From my first contact with Joanna in reservations until we checked out everyone was pleasant and more than accomodating. We asked if we could check in early and Andrew took my cell phone niumber and called when our unit was ready. We were originally booked in a 2 bedroom condo that had bedding for 5 people. However, when we checked in our unit did not have the promised bedding set up and therefore would not work for us. A quick call to the front desk remedied the situation. RJ offered us a 2 bedroom loft unit, but said we'd have to wait 2 hours until it was cleaned. If that didn't work for us he offered us rollaways for the night, and we could move in the morning. We opted to wait and were given a wonderful 2 bedroom loft condo with amazing views of the Tetons. The condo was bright, clean and a wonderful place to just sit out on the porch and enjoy the view. We ate breakfast in the Granary on two mornings and enjoyed great food and adequate service. We did have to wait to be seated one morning when the restaurant was basically 1/2 full and that was probably our only complaint about our stay. The housekeeping staff was thorough and accomodating. We often were not out for the day when they wanted to come and they graciously agreed to return later. It was a wonderful place to spend 5 days. It took only minutes to get into Jackson where we enjoyed many of the fine restaurants. We recommend Spring Creek highly and would return in a minute!
Great views Poor Service!
The views are incredible, but the service is terrible! One morning we awoke to find no toliet paper or coffee, one day no new towels. The room came with breakfast included, but there was virtually no help at the restaurant, but while what little service was cheerful the food was terrible with over-cooked eggs every morning and coffee cup always wanting. The rooms are poorly designed and not much sound proofing. We had a 2 bedroom that entered downstairs to walk up 14 steps a narrow halway and also not very clean. The rooms are expensive and we would not recommend staying there or eating at the Granary restaurant. Very disappointing!
The Spring Creek Ranch is very relaxing and well-located. It is a hybrid of a condo development and a resort, which is a little confusing when booking but really just means more to choose from in terms of accomodations. We stayed in a studio condo which met our needs beautifully and really felt like a home away from home. It had a very well-equipped small kitchen, a dining table, a murphy bed which was left down and didn't crowd the room, and a nice sitting area down a few steps with a fireplace, sofa, chairs, coffee table, TV/DVD, and finally a deck with an amazing view of the Tetons. The room wasn't luxurious, exactly, but yet it contained everything you might need plus some: iron, ironing board, radio/cd player, books, afore mentioned kitchen with literally every item most home kitchens contain, starbucks coffee and coffee maker, etc. Housekeeping did an unobtrusive and excellent job. Loads of firewood outside room and matches and firestarter right next to fireplace-I don't know about you, but I hate it when a room has a fireplace yet it's a struggle to procure what you need to use it!
We just returned from a business meeting at the Spring Creek Ranch in July. Our two bedroom condo was nicely decorated and had amenities such as a sub-zero frig, wash machine and dryer. The property is 2.5 miles up a winding road, just outside Jackson, offering a magnificent view of the Teton Mountain range across the valley. The property including the reception area and Granary restaurant are somewhat rustic, but certainly adequate in the services such as riding stable, pool and tennis. Jackson Hole has a fun, cowboy town which is not too far of a drive. We drove out to Teton Village and much preferred our location to the base mountain. If you decide to travel to Yellowstone National Park it's a minimum of two hours on a two land road just to reach the entrance, but well worth the effort.
We enjoyed Spring Creek Ranch very much. Rooms were clean and well furnished. Nights were very quiet. Since we were on top of a butte, there was no nearby traffic -- just beautiful fields of wild flowers surrounding us. We needed the washer/dryer that was included after traveling for a week.
5 stars, 6 diamonds, what ever it takes, this is the absolute best place we ever stayed, and we have been around this country. Condo was wonderful, service was great, staff was friendly and helpful and the views were indescribable. Food at the Granery was top notch. If you visit Jackson Hole and do not stay here, you have missed something.
Week at the Inn Room - nice room with an excellent view of the Mountains and city of Jackson. Staff of Spring Creek is way above the average. A lot of personal attention from everyone - shuttle service is outstanding - no need to rent a car. Overall very nice trip to JH - will come back next year.
Best of the West
The best value. Stayed with family in a condo. Resort is away from ski area but shuttle service works wondefully. Veiws are fantastic, When you arrive at resort you know you are in Wyoming. Views are the best in the state. A lot of other activities snowmobiling, dog-sledding, hot air ballooning. food was very good at resort and town offers a lot of choices. Also used kitchen and cooked in once. To sum it up. Our children said it was the best family vacation we have ever had. My wife and I agreed. we rebooked for next year wherethey have a ski free program.
