If your idea of a great vacation involves snow, skis, and the sun’s rays on snow laden slopes, then a ski trip vacation is just the thing. Think snow, light, fluffy, powder, soft landings, groomed trails, deep bowls, low humidity and high frequency glittery days with perfect conditions. Think cozy nights, warm fires, hot spring pools, exceptional dining, and a big comfortable bed. Then think no more – time to book a vacation at an amazing bed and breakfast – skier style.
The Bentwood Inn
Jackson Hole Wyoming is known for its slopes, and few hotels or inns in Jackson Hole offer the unrivaled character and qualities found at the Bentwood Inn. The Inn is situated in a beautiful wooded setting, beyond the majestic Teton Mountains and across from a tree-lined path leading to the Snake River. It was constructed in 1995 with massive 200 year old logs from Yellowstone National Park after the great fire of 1988. The Inn is an architectural marvel that ignites the senses with its natural beauty. This is the place you are looking for.
There is more than 6,000 square feet of luxurious space, including a three-story river rock fireplace in the Great Room. The large, expansive decks are perfect for relaxing and socializing in warm weather. And each of the five guest rooms has a private deck and fireplace. The Bentwood breakfast begins with fresh brewed coffee, baking bread, something sizzling on the griddle, fresh seasonal fruits, and bowls of berries. Guests are treated to a different menu each morning with fresh, organic and locally raised ingredients in season. Each week on Tuesday and Saturday the Bentwood Inn chef offers a fresh, seasonal dinner with three to four courses, specially prepared and served family style.
The Bentwood Inn is centrally located six miles from the world famous Jackson Hole Ski Area at Teton Village and the south entrance to Grand Teton National Park. It is six miles from the town of Jackson and twelve miles from the Jackson Hole Airport. It is a spectacularly scenic sixty-five mile drive through the National Elk Refuge and Grand Teton National Park to the south entrance to Yellowstone National Park. Any way you come and anywhere you go - nature and beauty rule.
