Jackson Hole beckons with top B&B and scenery

See also

Care to awaken to a curious moose looking into your bedroom window? Then this summer you need a trip to Jackson Hole, Wyoming – more specially the Bentwood Inn. The luxury bed & breakfast on 3.5 acres was built in 1995, constructed with massive 200 year old logs brought in from Yellowstone National Park. The logs were salvaged from the great fire of 1988.

Besides a moose at your window, there is the Great Room with its 3-story river rock fireplace and baby grand piano. Most of the guest rooms have a private fireplace and personal deck or porch, and most have a jetted spa tub. The large outdoor back deck facing the Grand Teton Mountains is perfect for relaxing and socializing in warm weather.

Trip Advisor rates the inn number one in Jackson Hole. It’s also one of the top rated properties by Outside Magazine and Away.com. The latest honor is an invitation to be a part of the BedandBreakfast.com Diamond Collection, a distinction reserved for elite inns offering extensive amenities and top-rated guest reviews.

“When planning a vacation escape, discerning travelers want the assurance of knowing that they’ll be staying at a B&B or inn that meets the highest standards of quality and service,” says Gregory Sion, general manager of BedandBreakfast.com. “The Bentwood Inn is a perfect addition to this group of premier inns.”

Forget the sleigh rides and dog sleds at this time of year. Now is the time to browse the art galleries, do some shopping and dining, and enjoy guided wildlife safaris, fly fishing, scenic river floats and exciting white water rafting. The Bentwood Inn has bikes for free.

Summer or winter be sure to visit the National Museum of Wildlife Art. There are concerts by world renown musicians at the famous Walk Theater, known for its fantastic acoustics (no electronic amplification), and live music every night at a dozen watering holes – most free. The Off Square Theater Company produces exceptional plays with some of the finest talent in the country many have acted on Broadway.

In the spring and fall months, many of the finer restaurants offer 2-for-1 and galleries offer enticing discounts.
