There is so much to see and do around Jackson Hole that you’ll want to spend at least a few days here – time enough to recharge from your flight or drive into the valley, to adjust to the higher altitude, to get your bearings, and to simply get around given all of the other visitors and locals on the roads.
And, either before or after booking a room with us at the Hideout, know that we are ready, willing and able to help you plan your trip to Jackson Hole. We’ll be glad to answer questions, provide recommendations – based upon our own or shared guest experiences, and offer up general considerations for making the most of your visit. For right now, we’ll just remind you that during your visit you’ll want to drink your water, to wear your sunscreen, to dress in layers, to respect the wildlife big and small, and to admire the wide open spaces and western heritage of Jackson Hole.
We initially ventured out to Jackson Hole for the well-known skiing and hiking, coming back to explore the wonders of the national parks, and returning again to saddle up for the trail riding at the dude ranches.
In October 2015, we finally made the move—and lifestyle change—a permanent one, foregoing annual vacations for a new home and business in a place we absolutely love. Given how much we like to enjoy the great outdoors, to travel, and to host family and friends, we jumped at the opportunity to purchase the home of A Teton Tree House Bed & Breakfast, one of the original B&Bs in the valley whose owners were retiring.
We felt that the home’s unique location up in the trees—almost like you are in a tree house—interesting four-level design with access to the grounds from every level, and inviting atmosphere—a home away from home, where you can settle down in style—would continue to be a wonderful B&B.
We wanted to keep the spirit of the previous B&B, described as “a whimsical, multi-level playhouse of a place” and an “aboreal retreat” by the National Geographic Traveler (March/April 1997), while truly making it our own.
After seven months of extensive renovations and updates, we opened the new Jackson Hole Hideout in June 2016.
For us, the experience of Jackson Hole —authentic, distinctive, majestic, breathtaking—is second only to the guest experience at the Hideout. We hope to prove that to you when you decide to visit.
