Jackson House Rental Photos and Description
Quintessential, ski-cabin, vacation rental, located in the heart of the Jackson Hole ski area's Granite Ridge.
**Minimum Night Stay Requirements May Vary**
A handsome, traditional house of log and mortar over stacked stone, MOOSEHEAD CABIN is centered amongst a cluster of Granite Ridge Cabins on a wooded hillside over Teton Village. One open, high-ceilinged room forms the heart of the cabin, where the living, dining and kitchen areas are lit by floods of light from the big windows and warmed by the fire in the stone hearth. Rich oriental rugs lie upon the floor and fine art hangs on the walls. Decorative “nailheads” detail the massive beams overhead; hand-built furniture adds an atmosphere of rustic luxury and whimsy to this wonderful home. True to its name, a majestic moose head surveys the Great Room from its mount above the mantelpiece.
From the Great Room – where a long taupe sofa can be pulled out into a queen bed – a ladder climbs up to a romantic sleeping loft with a big king-size bed. A bear skin rug and cowhide pillows make sleeping in the loft feel like old-time camping, and the sound of the crackling fire in the Great Room below provides a little night music.
Moosehead Cabin has a sunny, airy lower level with two bedrooms, each with a private bath and a TV. In the first, a sturdy log bed faces a reading area and a trio of mullioned windows. A TV rests upon a rustic dresser, a matching armoire stands nearby and a hide rug is spread over soft carpeting. A door opens to the lower terrace with its long view of the ski slopes. In the bathroom, a deep oval soaking tub stands next to a separate, tiled shower. The second bedroom has two twin beds spread with pretty flowered coverlets and an isinglass lamp between them. The beds can easily be converted into a single king bed upon request. In the bathroom – just past the walk-in closet – double sinks are set into gorgeous mission-style wood cabinetry; there is a tub/shower combo and a separate water closet.
From the lower stone terrace, Teton Village and the great rising slopes are spread out in full array. The wood deck above feels like a treehouse, lofty, private and screened by the aspens; many a fine evening may be spent cooking dinner out on the big gas grill, dining at the picnic table and relaxing afterwards in the hot tub, while the bright red tram ascends the mountainside and the stars wheel overhead.
Moosehead Cabin is positively magical in winter and summer alike, a festive, welcoming retreat right in the middle of one of the most gorgeous places in the world. Lantern-lit pathways lead from house to house down to the village, where shops, restaurants and world-class adventures can be found in abundance. A two-minute walk (or one-minute ski) will take you across to the legendary ski slopes of Teton Village, the Four Seasons Resort and the Snake River Lodge and Spa; and a mere five minutes in the car will bring you to the immense, craggy solitude of Grand Teton National park.
