In 1994, after spending several holidays in the Teton Valley, Frank Reilly fell upon the Rancho Alegre property. Frank and brother, Tom, had an interest in Jackson Hole, mainly for the unsurpassed powder that Jackson Hole’s ski seasons offer and the majestic beauty of the area. Frank decided the best way to know a place was to experience it, so he checked into the lodge as a guest for a month. Immediately, he fell in love with the property and the house. Shortly thereafter, he became the proud owner of Rancho Alegre Lodge. Since July 1995, thousands of guests have come to Rancho Alegre Lodge to experience all that Jackson Hole has to offer. There is no better way to enjoy this valley than to experience it from a hill-top with awe inspiring 360 degree mountain views and the comforts and charm of this gracious home.
Frank purchased this Lodge in 1995

Great Change from the Beach
Our family usually vacations at the beach. Decided this year to change it up. The result was fantastic. Eight adults, two teenagers, and one child....they were all fully entertained for the week. Location of Rancho Alegre Lodge is perfect. Minutes from Jackson Hole and Teton National Park. Yellowstone National Park was an easy drive. Rafting, fishing, and horseback riding were all within minutes. And we got to gaze at the milky way....that never happens at the beach.
The property is very unique. Very well layed out with plenty of group space, and private space. And the kitchen was awesome. With several good cooks in the family, there was nothing they needed that was not available. We even had one night catered (the night it was my turn to cook) and Frank's recommendation was great.
The farm animals provided an added experience that we had not anticipated. Goats, chickens, ducks, pigs, and a horse kept everyone entertained and inquisitive. We did not know goats have some much individual personality. The teenagers even got up early to "slop" the pigs. Oh, and all the eggs we could consume.
Frank was a great host. From the first communication to our departure Frank made all efforts to ensure our stay was what we wanted. No requests were denied. Additionally, Frank is a great story teller.
Overall, Rancho Alegre Lodge was a great break from the beach. So much so everyone wants to come back to the mountains again next year.
Thank you very much for this review.I enjoyed sitting on front deck with the Wilsons nightly!! Come back soon Frank
Stayed for a family reunion
Stayed for a family reunion and the communication was amazing and everything was great. Would highly recommend
Great spot for family reunion
We hosted a week long family reunion at the Rancho Alegre Lodge and everyone had a fabulous time. The owner is easy to work with and very accommodating. We did his breakfast option most days and it was great. The house is amazing and has so many sitting areas and living rooms making conversations easy.. The 8 bedrooms was perfect for our families. The farm animals are very entertaining as well.
Paul family reunion
Best reunion ever for our ten family members! Great host! Incredible lodge with 8 bedrooms (sleeps up to 24 in beds!), library bar, incredible kitchen (breakfast buffet that changed each morning), den and family room with pool table and large dining room. Tetons views from large deck. The best fun was interacting with the goats, pigs, ducks and chickens! Ask Frank to take you on an evening goat walk. We will go back!
Thank you for your great review. I really enjoyed your family and look forward to another goat walk with you. All the best... Frank
Our stay was beyond our expectations. We had 17 people in our family and we were all very comfortable. The kids enjoyed the farm animals. The fire in the evening was so enjoyable. The views were great. On our last night we watched a herd of elk graze and run thru the back area. Frank was very pleasant and helpful. Everything was clean and organized. We can’t rate frank and his property high enough. They were over the top. The property was beautiful. We would go back in a heartbeat!
Words cannot do justice in capturing just how incredible our experience at Rancho Alegre was over the holiday weekend. My wife and I had been planning this trip for well over a year to celebrate my 40th birthday. We arrived with 15 friends, five kids, and super high expectations given the many moving pieces we had in place for a memorable trip. And without fail, Frank and Rancho Alegre delivered at every turn. To start, the property is perfect - the views (!), the friendly animals, the size, location, attention to detail, decor, games (indoor and outdoor), cleanliness, vibe, you name it. Every room had gorgeous views, soft bedding, interesting artifacts, and private space, perfect for a large group with differing needs. The main rooms were also ideal for games, pool, ping pong, hanging out by the fire, large group dining (indoor and outdoor), photos, etc. The kitchen had everything to meet our cooking needs and the needs of the catering team we hired for the big party. And, truly the best part of it all was Frank himself. I have met a lot of property owners over the years and Frank is by far the most gracious and easy-going host I've had the pleasure of working with. Email communication was prompt, contracts and payments clear, and he was present enough on site to take care of our (many) needs (i.e., wifi, setting up Sonos speakers, finding the bikes, removing trash and recycling, calling in a masseuse on a holiday, helping us with laundry, and even folding my friend's clothes!). At the same time, he allowed us to do our thing and was not pressed about kids running around wild on the property, late night sing-along's, an accidental broken chair, texting him 24-7, etc. At every step he was friendly, easy to talk with, and happy to help us have the best time possible. And we did. Every single guest present wants to return ASAP. In fact, we would like to make this an annual trip! It was truly the best group vacation I have ever had. I never write reviews, but this one deserves it. Please be good to Frank and his family, the animals, and the property because we want everyone to have the chance to experience this place to its fullest, just as we did. Thank you, Frank and team, this is a trip I will never forget.
Thank you soooo much. This was a well written review. I really appreciate it. Come back soon Frank
