Jackson vacation rentals

Jackson—a friendly base for all seasons

From cozy log cabins in the mountains to spacious family homes with magnificent views over the valley, Jackson vacation rentals make the perfect base for exploring this unspoiled corner of Wyoming. Visitors flock from all over the US and beyond to snap selfies beneath the town’s famous elk-antler arches and visit the nearby National Elk Refuge. Grand Teton National Park is a popular destination for summer hikers and mountain bikers, while the nearby Jackson Hole Mountain Resort offers experienced skiers one of the highest vertical drops in North America.

Jackson—a step back in time

The town square is the epicenter of social life in Jackson. This vibrant quarter of stores, restaurants, and bars is framed by giant arches made of shed elk antlers that have become one of the town’s quirkiest features. A walking tour of downtown will also reveal many original buildings dating from the turn of the 20th century. A special highlight is the Jackson Hole Playhouse, which started life as a livery stable and served as a bowling alley and post office before being converted into a theater in 1948. Downtown Jackson vacation rentals are a great way to step back in time and soak up the ambience of the Old West.

Alternative views of Jackson’s famous elks

The National Elk Refuge is one of Jackson’s best-loved attractions. The refuge was created in 1912 to protect the habitat of one of the largest elk herds in the world. Many of the animals come from as far afield as Yellowstone National Park to overwinter on the grassy plains around Jackson. During the winter months, the refuge provides horse-drawn sleighs for visitors to see the herd up close. The National Museum of Wildlife Art, abutting the refuge, offers an alternative view of these graceful creatures. Its centerpiece is a collection of paintings by the pathbreaking American wildlife artist Carl Rungius.

Jackson’s seasonal highs

Jackson’s humid continental climate and high elevation result in wider temperature variations than in many other parts of Wyoming. Extremely chilly nights frequently follow hot, sunny days, even in the height of summer. The plus side is that the ski season typically lasts from November through to late spring, with rainfall quickly converting to snow at higher altitudes. Many Jackson vacation rentals in the mountains come with hot tubs and saunas to shrug off the winter chill, while barbecues and patios provide the perfect setting for dining under the summer stars.

Jackson’s wild beauty on the doorstep

Grand Teton National Park encompasses the Teton mountain range and the Jackson Hole valley. The park is connected to its more famous neighbor, Yellowstone, by the scenic John D. Rockefeller, Jr. Memorial Parkway, named for the conservation-minded philanthropist who contributed to the creation of Grand Teton park. This untrammeled habitat of mountains, lakes, and rivers offers a pristine environment for native flora and fauna species dating from prehistory to thrive , and provides protection for endangered trees such as whitebark pine, right on the doorstep of downtown Jackson vacation rentals.
