Our favourite rooms
One thing's for certain: there’s no such thing as a dud room at Caldera House. Each of the eight suites has been designed down to the finest of details – whether that’s the lustre and rich grain of a wooden floor, the texture of a stone wall or the colour of the crockery, chosen to match the kitchen and dining room. We could wax lyrical about all eight of them, but in the end, choosing one will come down to the size of your party and the design that grabs you the most.
There’s a large, infinity-edge hot tub on a terrace overlooking the valley – the perfect spot for your apre-ski or post-hike soak. In the depths of winter, order a whiskey or two for added warmth.
Having limbered up in the plunge pool, step into the spa, where there’s a cedarwood sauna and a treatment room. The therapists are experts in restoring muscles that have been tested by Jackson Hole’s mountainous terrain, and can tailor massages to specific problem areas. The facials are also geared towards the alpine climate, using cutting-edge technology to rejuvenate skin that’s been put through its paces by cold or dry air. If you want to save yourself a walk, individual and couples’ treatments can be done in-suite.
Don’t forget your GoPro. In summer, you’ll capture first-person views as you clamber over precipitous peaks; in winter, film your death-or-glory descent into Corbet’s Couloir, Jackson Hole’s most (in)famous run.
All the public areas are wheelchair accessible, and the Yellowstone Suite is ADA compliant.
Dogs of all shapes and sizes can stay free; bowls and food are available on request. See more pet-friendly hotels in Jackson Hole.
All ages are very welcome. Both the two- and four-bedroom suites have ample room for families, and there’s no shortage of activities to keep little Smiths occupied. Babysitting is available for $60 an hour; a day’s notice is needed when booking.
