The Sweetest Valentine for This Hotel – Come Stay With Us

When you’re in the hospitality business, there’s nothing more gratifying than when your property and staff are recognized, especially when the kudos are primarily coming from your guests.

Teton Springs Voted Number One in Idaho… Again!

As we sit here assisting our hotel guests in the morning hustle and bustle as they head out the door anxious to hit the slopes, and watching the snow fall, which is a frequent ritual in Teton Valley, I’m allowing myself a brief moment to gloat. It was just announced that Teton Springs Lodge & Spa was named the “Best Hotel in Idaho” for the fourth straight year. Any recognition as the “best” is quite the honor, but to be named the “Best Hotel in Idaho” by the prestigious U.S. News & World Report, well, that’s something that warrants bragging rights.

This is a publication that is easily considered a stalwart of American journalism, a true media news giant since the early 1930′s. It has always distinguished itself as being top notch with its editorial content, always resisting the urge to cave to the public’s morbid curiosity for any morsel of celebrity shenanigans, pop culture, sports and the scandal du jour. Instead, U.S. News & World Report built its reputation on giving sound advice to its readers by publishing rankings & analysis, from the “best of” in hospitals, colleges, automotives, health plans, finance, and the like. Information people really need, imagine that.

What determines the “best” of anything can be so subjective, a personal appraisal often reflecting a consumer’s limited snapshot in time. U.S. News & World Report takes a more scientific, multi-faceted approach to determine their ratings. Travel industry leaders consider a hotel’s star ratings, recommendations, consumer appraisals and travelers’ reviews to comprise their list of who should be considered the crème de la crème in each state. Think it’s accurate to say the accommodations and overall quality of the property have to be top-notch and possess those amenities that separate your hotel from the hum-drum, homogenized properties that dot the country.

Congratulations Teton Springs Lodge & Spa – your pride of place continues to shine brightly!

Valentines Day in the Teton Valley

Teton Springs also holds the recipe for romance this Valentine’s Day! Why settle for same old, same old, which usually means chocolates and roses. Other than to fill the coffers of Hallmark, Valentine’s Day presents the perfect opportunity to think outside the box and truly recognize how much we care about someone. Yes, Cupid reigns supreme in this month of February, and our guests will be looking to us for advice on how to honor all special relationships.

It’s easy to come up with heartfelt ideas while you’re a guest at Teton Springs. There’s adventure, discovery and even pampering galore. Here’s but a few ideas on how to spend this special day with someone you love!

Snowcat Skiing at Grand Targhee

Snuggled up in the back of a snowcat with your sweetie at Grand Targhee as it chugs up Peaked Mountain for a day of powder skiing sounds pretty special to me (23″inches of fluff fell on the slopes at powder Mecca Grand Targhee this past week.)

Speaking of powder – a heli ski trip into the Tetons says “love” loud and clear!

Wildlife Extravaganza

Start the adventure with a scrumptious breakfast in the Lodge’s new Storehouse Café, then off to Jackson Hole for a delightful horse-drawn sleigh ride into the National Elk Refuge. Toasty under cowboy blankets, you’ll find yourself eye-to-eye with as many as 14,000 majestic elk that winter here, in the shadows of the Tetons.

Stillwaters Spa & Salon

The  Stillwaters Spa & Salon commemorates Valentine’s Day the entire month of February with sweet specials! They also recognize the importance of de-stressing, and what offers the perfect balance of relaxation and pampering better than a 90 minute massage (and worth noting – at the 60 minute price throughout February!). This way you both get the ultimate and heartfelt gift!

Fly fishing on the South Fork River!

Trust me; it’s never too early to book a spring or summer fly fishing excursion on eastern Idaho’s most renowned river. Book a day trip, or a multi-day all inclusive stay, at Teton Springs’s sister resort, South Fork Lodge, undoubtedly one of Natural Retreat’s most pristine and ruggedly elegant properties. And, it’s worth repeating that this could very well be the best dry fly fishing in the entire country.

Happy Valentine’s Day, and remember, nothing says LOVE louder than adventure and discovery in Yellowstone-Teton country!

What Off Season – Birdies and Trout

What off Season? Birdies on Headwaters Course & monster trout on the Henry’s Fork!

Some folks may refer to this time of year as the “off season.” Most of the regional ski resorts have closed or are getting pretty close to hitting the off switch. The ever present shuttle buses carting anxious skiers from Jackson Hole to Teton Valley are mothballed until the snow flies again next winter.

There’s still plenty of snow at Grand Targhee, but of late it’s the buffed out groomed runs and high altitude deck parties filled with music and the aroma of sizzling burgers that are the main attraction.

The days of the heavenly powder face shots are more or less behind us.

Golfing the 18 Hole Award Winning Course – Golfing Stay and Play Packages

Who cares what’s behind us; it’s what’s ahead that is always the most exciting and now we’re talking golf & fishing. Oh boy! That’s why there’s no such thing as “off season” at Teton Springs Resort. The Headwaters Golf Club maintenance crew is out in full force evaluating just how quickly they can set up the tee boxes on this 18 hole award-winning course. The opening of the Byron Nelson short course at Teton Springs will happen even sooner.

The privilege to play both of these private courses, at a discounted rate I may add, are yours for the taking when you book hotel and golf packages at Teton Springs Lodge & Spa.

That’s always the case at this most gracious resort. But this spring they’ve gone crazy -they have a special that’s the absolute best offer of the season and includes a night in their deluxe lodge room, and a day of golf, plus…… plus……..

Check it out; it’s valid from May 1 – May 25. So dust off the sticks; that’s right around the corner, check out our wonderful Spring Packages for Golfing!

Relax at the Stillwaters Spa and Salon

April is also bonus month at the resort’s Stillwaters Spa & Salon and the “90 for 60″ is back. Book a 60 minute massage and they massage those winter weary bones an extra 30 minutes for free!


Fly Fishing  – Waders – Good Times with Friends

Pteronarcys you say… That means one thing, salmon fly, and BIG TROUT LOVE SALMON FLIES!

The other reason you gotta love the not so off “off-season,” is the chance to plant your feet firmly in the waders once again. The folks at Teton Springs have been booking summer fishing packages for months; the serious anglers are always too anxious to wait.

Now there’s a new offering on the table, fly fishing trips to the world renowned Henry’s Fork for the coveted salmon fly hatch.

These guided fly fishing trips with Teton Springs Lodge partner WorldCast are happening May 1 thru May 31. Grab a bunch of buddies and head to Idaho but you’ll need to call Teton Springs Guest Services to book this one. This package is even too hot for the web!
