Highs & Lows

  • They really nailed the combo of mountain-town naturality and homage to the property's history, updated in modern design and all the small details. The owner's relationship with the place really comes through.

  • Partnerships with so many local vendors really invite you to explore the community. Hot springs, kayak school, trail yoga — the staff will talk to you about anything and help arrange.

  • Community programming is printed weekly and available in the lobby so you're aware of every Western swing lesson, town square pancake breakfast, farmer's market and hootenanny.

  • Also on the property is Cache House, the very fabulous hostel-style partner. Gorgeous common areas and the most well designed community bunks I've ever seen, but it's a fraction of the price without discounting the cool or the access.

  • Parking can be a challenge. There is a limited lot by reception, but it's small and you could be stuck trying to find a spot on the busy village streets.

  • Health & Wellness

    Ask the front desk for resident programming on all things Jackson — skiing, white water rafting, trailheads, etc. And borrow one of the many cruiser bikes parked outside

    The onsite restaurant, Glorietta Trattoria, is a major plus. Modern Italian with a wood-burning grill and fresh pasta. Don't miss Glori Gelateria, the house-made gelato stand

  • Bar, Events & Nightlife

    Glorietta's bar is a chic subway-tiled situation with great cocktails from the Death and Co. people. It was open late, welcoming, and filled with locals and guests after we returned from drinks in town
