Jackson Hole, Wyoming might be the complete description of the term “cozy”. Dramatic peaks, gentle snowfall, local eateries and log structures come together to make an incredibly magical destination and one of the most beautiful mountain towns in the U.S. Whether staying in downtown Jackson where there’s a winter skating rink, adorable shops in the square and Snow King Mountain, a few minutes down the road in Teton Village, you’ll find no shortage of charming little places to stay. These are the coziest Airbnbs in Jackson Hole.
Equipped with three bedrooms, this townhome is ready to host the entire family for a winter wonderland vacation. Intricate cabinetry and granite countertops will likely be the gathering point for everyone, where all can enjoy coffee from a local roaster or a meal full of local ingredients from the markets in town. You don’t need a car to access some great hikes, or the National Elk Refuge, which is within sight. Seeing wintering elk in the fields is a majestic experience.
Also known as ”The Baitshop Cabin”, the bungalow is a minute or two walking distance from actual downtown Jackson Hole, where you’ll find town square, the famed cowboy bar and unique shops. Snow King Mountain is the most proximal ski resort and is truly down to earth, while Jackson Hole Mountain Resort is only a short drive away, at Teton Village. Full glass doors let in light from the generously sized patio, where there’s space to dine or grill when the weather is right. Six guests could easily split the price tag.
Homey but swanky, guests get to take in views of downtown Jackson from a large deck, complete with a steaming hot tub. The Pearl at Jackson is a newer establishment that still holds true to the town’s pleasantly gritty style. Two bedrooms and two sparkling baths are spread throughout the naturally lit nook with straight-on views of Snow King Mountain.
You don’t need much to feel snug as a bug in Jackson Hole, and this precious studio cabin, simply furnished with a queen bed, kitchenette and seating area, is the perfect place to watch the snowfall. A log structure with gentle flakes piling up on the edges—magic. The best part is, it won’t break your bank.
Another adorable log cabin at the quaint Elk Country Inn is the epitome of the area’s historic structures—guests can even explore old photos from a bygone era hanging on the walls. This particular dwelling has two queen beds and sleeping quarters in the living space, so it’s great for families. Enjoy the hospitality of treats and a continental breakfast at the inn.
High ceilings, updated paneling, stunning stonework and an overall open feel have made this “hideaway” in Teton village a high end yet welcoming escape for snow bunnies. Teton Village is the place to stay when wanting to experience Jackson Hole’s big-time ski spot, Jackson Hole Mountain Resort. Even if you don’t ski, ride the big red tram up the mountain for views and waffles, at the cutest little shack.
Cute as a button and with generous room for four guests, one can just imagine sipping hot cocoa by that stone fireplace. The home is much bigger than it looks, coming in at about 2000 square feet. Outside you’ll find a scenic deck, with a private hot tub for majestic nights under the stars. Keeping it consistent with other log structures, this one too has a polished aesthetic.
This cozy one-bedroom cabin accommodates three, ideal for a couple or small family. It offers a magnificent direct view of the Grand Tetons and an ideal location just minutes from the national park while being far enough from town to enjoy a brilliant night’s sky. During the day watch for the moose, elk, and bison that frequently visit the property or take advantage of a wealth of activities from fishing, whitewater rafting, kayaking and hiking in the warmer months to snowmobiling and cross-country trails for skiing and snowshoeing in the winter. It includes a full kitchen, Wi-Fi, and a 42″ HDTV with Netflix, Amazon Prime Video, Chromecast, and HBO Max.
This gorgeous two-bedroom cabin is located right on the 8th fairway of the Jackson Hole Golf and Tennis Club next to Grand Teton National Park. It boasts floor-to-ceiling windows that showcase a breathtaking view of the Grand Tetons and the wildlife that like to graze on the front lawn, including elk and buffalo. Other highlights include redwood decks, a huge rock fireplace with wood supplied, a 60″ flat-screen TV, an elk antler chandelier, and a high-end kitchen. The master suite has a king-size bed and its own flat-screen TV as well as a bathroom with a separate glassed-in shower and jetted tub. Laundry facilities are included too.
Just minutes from all the shops and restaurants in town and the national park, this two-bedroom townhouse accommodates up to four guests. It includes large windows for enjoying the Grand Teton views as well as a deck that’s ideal for sipping cocktails while watching the sun go down over the mountains. In the living room, you’ll have a sitting area with a cable TV and wood-burning fireplace, while the kitchen is fully equipped for preparing your own meals and dining. Guests frequently rave about the wildlife sightings that have included moose, elk, and mule deer.
Enjoy an unforgettable mountain retreat for six in this two-bedroom condo with a rustic interior and private deck, ideal for stargazing while enjoying hot cocoa or perhaps a glass of local wine from Jackson Hole Winery. You’ll be far enough from the hustle and bustle to enjoy a tranquil setting yet the town can be reached in just a 10-minute drive. Watch for wildlife along the way and occasionally right in the yard. After a day of play, you can look forward to relaxing in your own private sauna or cozying up to the fireplace. A full kitchen, cable TV with a movie collection, and a washer/dryer are all included too.
This is definitely not your usual cabin. It’s filled with luxuries and delivers when it comes to jaw-dropping Teton views that can be enjoyed from large picture windows or the spacious deck. Whip up gourmet meals in the well-stocked kitchen, cooked while enjoying tunes from an outstanding sound system, and look forward to movie nights or game nights with games and puzzles included too. You’ll be just minutes from world-class shopping and dining in Jackson or the park, and nearly every activity imaginable, including scenic trails for hiking and biking, fly fishing, whitewater rafting, and skiing. Complimentary mountain bikes for exploring on two wheels are included too.
