There's always an excuse to take a summer escape. I can think of many. This summer started with the destination of Jackson Hole, Wyoming. This wild place is packed with animals of all sorts. Activities like hiking, rafting, and biking. More adventures than anyone could ask for. One of the best parts of taking a vacation is learning to balance your stay with enough experiences to truly see a place alongside with time to take a much-needed break.
When choosing a hotel, I like to keep both in mind.
The Four Seasons Resort and Residences Jackson Hole purely combines enough to do and not to do for their guests. The mountainside escape sits at the base of Rendezvous Mountain where one could spend their hours poolside, or even out in their backyard climbing the Wildflower trail. There's truly something for everyone.
Just a quick thirty minutes from the center of Grand Teton National Park, you have the opportunity to spend the day exploring the terrain and keeping your eyes out for the moose, bears, and bison. Along with being steps from the Teton Village, you could have endless meals at on-site restaurants like the Handle Bar and Westbank Grill and partake in the wide variety of activities in the village. The possibilities are endless from the Four Seasons.
After a day of adventure, the inviting resort sets a relaxing mood by easing you into comfortable luxury with an array of in-suite and on-property amenities. Each room and suite is designed to fit into it's background of pine trees and green valleys, creating a smooth transition from outside to inside. Amenities like espresso machines, plush robes, and a fireplace add a special touch for a cozy stay in the room.
"I could have easily spent most of my day curled up fireside reading a book and enjoying a coffee."
Each room is spacious with a private terrace that opens up with two chairs and a table, making the perfect location for a pre-dinner drink. Of course the beds are nothing less then the ultimate down duvets and pillows. The leather-padded couches, the stone fireplace, and a tub for two remind you to sit back and relax.

Taking a trip to Jackson Hole should invite you to experience nature, relax in nature, and be in nature — something the Four Seasons Resort and Residences is doing spectacularly.
