Overview: Crashing at the Alpine House is like staying at a favorite uncle’s place—if said uncle was a great breakfast cook, had 22 plush guest rooms and five cottages, and was a badass mountain guide. And oh yeah, your dream uncle’s home is right downtown in Jackson and his property is eco-certified.
Notable: The famed Exum Mountain Guides are typically here meeting clients for breakfast—probably because Hans and Nancy Johnstone are both former Olympians and guides themselves.
Stay Here If: Ambling to Jackson’s bars and restaurants after a long day of ski touring in Grand Teton National Park, or riding lifts up at the village is more of a vacation than riding in a shuttle. And you dig a nonintrusive bed and breakfast vibe imbued with Wyoming mountain culture.
Information: Rooms start at $160 per night. alpinehouse.com —Marc Peruzzi
