About 30 minutes from the Jackson, WY airport, nestled among the snow capped mountains and lush peaks of Jackson Hole basin, stands the rustic yet luxurious Four Seasons Resort and Residences Jackson Hole. This resort offers expansive views of Grand Teton National Park along with the accessibility of being only about 25 minutes from downtown Jackson.
Our family spent five nights at the resort in one of the 3 bedroom villas. *I was not compensated in anyway for this post. We just had such an incredible stay that I wanted to share our experience with you all. At the time we stayed in June, they had a special of getting a 5th consecutive night free. **Please check the resort website for current rates and room options along with specials, as they vary based on the time of year and so on.
This resort is definitely on the pricey side. However, it includes so many included perks and amenities, as well as outstanding service. I’ll get into all that is included with your stay as well.

You will be stunned with the immersive beauty of Jackson, WY the moment you deplane. You actually walk out right into the majestic land rather than straight into the airport. Our family opted to rent an SUV for our 5 night stay in Jackson Hole since the Four Seasons doesn’t offer their own transportation. Well, unless you want to take advantage of the resort’s one day Mercedes Benz experience, which maybe we would try next time.
It took about half and hour to get to the Four Seasons Resort, but time seems irrelevant when you are surrounded by such natural beauty! We visited in June, so there was still a chill in the air and I recommend bringing a coat if you visit in the early Summer like we did.
The downtown area of Jackson, WY is bustling. We did run into some traffic during the busier times of the day, so the commute between the resort and downtown Jackson did get closer to 45 minutes , depending on the time. There are many charming shops to choose from, whether you want pastry, local food, or collections of Yellowstone clothing, eclectic jewelry, Huckleberry syrup, coffee, etc. No matter where you walk you will see breathtaking views!
Four Seasons Resort Jackson Hole
Upon arriving at the Four Seasons, we were greeted by several people and offered cartons of water. We opted to use the valet service for our car and had help bringing all of our luggage up to the room.
The lobby has fresh apples available all day, along with cucumber mint infused water, and Huckleberry Lemonade. For the children, a wagon awaits that’s filled with toys and activities like coloring books, pop its, and more. This was such a lovely touch that Bea and Tilly were so excited about.
We had a variety of dining options. The Handle Bar offers casual dining and is perfect for lunch. The portions are huge, so it was the perfect spot for sharing a few dishes. The Ascent Lounge was more of the common area of the resort and offered complimentary coffee and hot chocolate in the morning, along with pan Asian food served indoors or on the heated patio. This is also where s’mores kits are found after 3 pm for kids. The pool also has food and beverage service. And the Westbank Grill is a fine dining steak house that had the most expansive views along with breakfast and dinner meals. You can also get in room dining for an extra fee. They set it all up at the dining room table and then offer cleanup as well.
Rooms With A View
All of the bedrooms had rustic furnishings, expansive walk in closets, and incredible views!
Amenities Included In 3 Bedroom Villa At Four Seasons Jackson Hole
We did get a larger style of the room types offered at this Four Seasons. We got a 3 bedroom since we were with the girls and Grant’s parents. So we all had our own rooms with 3 accompanying bathrooms that featured Le Labo shampoo, conditioner, and soap.
The 3 bedroom residence includes a large kitchen with dishwasher, microwave, fridge fully stocked with included drinks such as simple syrups and a ton of beverages including cartons of water and sparkling water.
Our residence included a large balcony with a valley view. The balcony comes with patio seating to relax and take in the fresh air and mountains! Our views happened to include hot air balloons and paragliding as well!
Housekeeping came twice, once in the morning for a deep clean and once in the early evening for a lighter clean. In addition to this, they also provide turn down service.
Each evening we were left a lovely surprise on the dining table (which seated 6). Some of these included treats were chocolate truffles, desserts, a cheese plate with house-made cherry compote, bottles of Huckleberry soda, wine from the local winery, and popcorn.
Here is where the fun begins! The resort did check on the ages of the kids. So when we walked in they had so much set up for the kids!
The resort had included stuffed bald eagles on each of the beds in the kid’s room. They also had kid sized bath robes and slippers. Their bathroom included kids gripper toothbrushes along with children’s toiletries. Such a nice touch!
Activities in Jackson Hole
We truly made the most of everyday we spent in Jackson Hole! The resort backs out into vast hiking and mountain biking trails, ski areas, lifts, and a tram that takes you to the top of the mountain for the best waffles ever! I’ll get to that part soon. No matter what time of year you go, there is an abundance of activities.
A tasty bonus of the Four Seasons, they have complimentary nightly wine, liquor, or beer tastings in the Ascent Lounge near the Lobby. Additionally, for children, they provide s’mores kits to use with the lounge’s outdoor fire pits.
We got a family tram pass that got us all the way to an elevation of 10,450! This is where you have a chance to nosh on world famous Top Of The World Waffles. These waffles are so light and airy. I heard that the batter is made at the base of the mountain, then takes the 12 minute tram ride up, and that rise to the top creates a texture like no other.
Our team pass gave us access to all the lifts. So we tried them all! We took a lift up and hikes down various paths. Then did a final ride down on a different lift. It’s great you have this option, as it does get steep in some spots and tiring for kids along the way.
Activities Through Four Seasons
The concierge worked with my mother in law to plan some epic adventures! We did a safari that picked us up from the resort and took us around The Grand Teton National Park for a few hours. Our guide took us to areas to see animals like bison and a young moose.
We went whitewater rafting and horse back riding, and even rented electric bikes for half a day. That was really fun! And Grant and I even rode by a grazing baby moose along the way.
We visited The Jackson Hole Winery and the views were incredible!
here is so much to do in Jackson Hole! And of course, the girls got gift shop souvenirs from their Grandparents!
This was a magical vacation! We all had a chance to fully immersed ourselves in nature and enjoy so much special family time during this trip. I would highly recommend visiting Jackson Hole and The Four Seasons!
