If you’re looking for a mecca for year-round outdoor activities—plus some western flair—then you’re in luck. Our Jackson vacation rentals are the place to be for your Wyoming getaway, whether you’re lacing up your hiking shoes, shredding fresh powder, or just exploring this high-end mountain destination.
You’ll find our Jackson cabin rentals nestled in the scenic valley of Jackson Hole. (The word “hole” comes from Wyoming’s early fur trappers, who used it to describe a high mountain valley.) The town of Jackson was incorporated in 1914—to this day it’s the only incorporated town in the valley—and its “wild west” roots are evident from its architecture and establishments to the town’s adventurous way of life.
Undoubtedly, the things that draw so many visitors to this town every year are the dramatic landscape and abundance of ways to explore it. Three ski resorts are within easy reach of Jackson—and one of them is actually in downtown Jackson. Snow King, known as the “town hill,” is just moments from the town square and offers skiing, a treetop adventure park, an alpine coaster, and even an ice-climbing park. Or you can experience the famous powder and trails of Grand Targhee Ski Resort and Bike Park, located about 75 minutes from downtown Jackson.
Just a 20-minute drive away, the world-famous Jackson Hole Mountain Resort awaits. Its nickname, the Big One, is from its enormous continuous vertical rise—the longest of any ski area in the U.S., in fact. From the top of Rendezvous Mountain to the valley floor is an amazing 4,139 feet of vertical drop. While the resort is known for its difficult, steep terrain, there are still beginner slopes and activities like tubing and snowshoeing available. Plus, Forbes named Jackson Hole Mountain Resort a Top 10 Ski Resort in North America, so you know it's worth a visit.
When it comes to outdoor adventure in the warmer months, the possibilities are near-endless. Our Jackson vacation rentals are near some of the most beautiful state and national parks in Wyoming—and, some would say, in the country.
Yellowstone National Park is just over an hour away from Jackson, where you can see the incredible power of our planet at famous landmarks like the geysers at Old Faithful and the jaw-dropping colors of Grand Prismatic Spring, the third-largest hot spring in the world. The town of Jackson also sits at the border of the incredible Grand Teton National Park, which is brimming with opportunities for hiking, rock climbing, whitewater rafting, fly fishing, and wildlife-viewing.
If sticking closer to your Jackson cabin rental is more your style, you’ll still find plenty of things to keep you entertained or relaxed—or both. The town is brimming with fun western vibes, perhaps most famously the town square, where a beautiful archway built from naturally shed elk antlers stands. It’s the perfect spot for a family or couples’ photo, so be sure to stop by as you explore the town.
The arts are alive and buzzing in Jackson. Spend a memorable evening of live performances, from concerts to plays to ballets, at Jackson Center for the Arts. Peruse the local galleries displaying fine art and crafts, or pamper yourself with a massage or body wrap at a spa. When it’s time to grab a bite, you’ll find everything from high-end restaurants like Gather, to hole-in-the-wall pizzerias that are perfect for a chilly evening.
No matter what brings you to Jackson—the national parks, the skiing, the nightlife, or something in-between—you’ll find plenty of reasons to fall in love with this town. Browse our Jackson vacation rentals and start planning your adventure today.
