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.
The Four Seasons has created an oasis beckoning the traveler who seeks tailored adventures with a balance of relaxation and wellness. With adventures exclusive to guests like family stargazing with an in-house astronomer, wildlife safaris with the in-house biologist, or guided fly-fishing experiences, you can truly experience the Grand Teton National Park unlike any other visitor. 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.

PS — Are You Booking a Trip Soon? Use My Booking Checklist!
These are the sites I use most to book my own trips. Using the links below is a great way to support Bon Traveler’s travel journalism at no extra cost to you. If you need help organizing your itinerary, get my free travel itinerary template here.
1. Book Your Flights
Use Skyscanner to find the best flights. It searches 100s of airlines and websites across the globe to ensure you’re not missing out on any route options or deals.
2. Book Your Accommodations
Use Booking.com for hotels and guest houses. They have the biggest inventory and consistently offer the best rates.
3. Book Your Tours & Experiences
4. Book Your Car
Use Discover Cars or Rentalcars.com to find the best car rental deals. I recommend comparing rental agency reviews on Google to ensure you are booking with the best company in that destination, as the reviews are often more accurate than the car rental search engines.
5. Don’t Forget Airport Lounge Access
Get a Priority Pass membership to gain access to 1,400+ VIP lounges and airport experiences worldwide. The Priority Pass app is the first thing I check when I have a layover. I’ve been a member for over a decade, and having a comfortable place to relax before and between flights makes air travel so much more enjoyable.
6. Don’t Forget Travel Insurance
I never leave the country without travel insurance. It provides comprehensive protection in case anything goes wrong (ie. illness, injury, theft, and cancelations, etc.). I use it frequently for my travels to stay protected.
My favorite companies that offer the best coverage and rates are:
