200 years ago, a young group of trees in Yellowstone began to sprout, and grew to enormous heights…and when they were strong enough, they were brought to Jackson Hole to serve as the pillars of a stunning architectural spectacle just shy of the Snake River and the Grand Teton National Park known as The Bentwood Inn. A luxury B&B which is as charming and majestic as its incredible surroundings.

There’s something just a bit extra special about this 6,000 sq. ft log cabin-style mansion…perhaps it’s the 3 story river rock fireplace in the Great Room, or the massive outdoor decks which beckon you to literally just sit back, relax and enjoy the view. Or maybe it’s the cleverly decorated rooms, each with a theme all its own from Cowboy chic to Native American nuance and the cozy friendliness and sheer natural beauty of Jackson Hole in general that wraps you up like a warm blanket.

What’s great about Jackson Hole is (ok, the list is long but….) the fact that it is truly a year-round destination. Sure, the skiing, snowmobiling, skating and the snowcapped mountains bathing in the azure twilight skies are all fabulous, but spring and summer open up an abundance of things to do including hiking, golfing, whitewater rafting, canoeing, horseback riding and even covered wagon outings. And the food’s pretty rib-stickin’ as well all around. Why oh why aren’t you in Wyoming yet?
