TETON SPRINGS LODGE & SPA RATED TOP RESORT IN IDAHO AND EARNS TRIPADVISOR "CERTIFICATE OF EXCELLENCE" FOR YEAR 2011
Teton Valley Property Honored as a Highly Rated Hotel as Reviewed by Travelers on the World’s Largest Travel Site
Victor, Idaho – Teton Springs Lodge & Spa today announced that it has received a TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence for the year 2011, which honors top-rated lodging businesses, restaurants and attractions worldwide, as reviewed by travelers on the world’s largest travel site. To qualify, Teton Springs Lodge & Spa had to maintain an average rating of four or higher out of a possible five, as reviewed by travelers on TripAdvisor. Additional criteria include volume of reviews and how recently they have been submitted by travelers.
Top Resort In Idaho… Bringing Beauty, Adventure, and Relaxation Together
Teton Springs Lodge was rated "Top Resort in Idaho" based on guest reviews of 334 hotels/resorts in the Gem State. "This powerful endorsement from our resort guests is indeed humbling," said Jeff Naylor, General Manager for Teton Springs Lodge & Spa. "It’s an honor to receive this recognition from the people who matter the most, our guests. I’m proud to be associated with this property and I can’t say enough about our staff’s commitment to provide exemplary guest service every day," continued Naylor.
The TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence program gives exceptional businesses the recognition they deserve," said Christine Petersen, president of TripAdvisor for Business. Traveladvisor.com, founded in 2000, provides consumers with one-stop-shopping travel information on hotels, resorts, airlines, events, and activities to pursue in any particular destination worldwide.
The Number One Hotel In Idaho
Situated in the heart of Teton Valley, Teton Springs Lodge & Spa opened in December 2007. This year-round resort offers 52 casually elegant guest rooms and suites in the main lodge. Teton Springs also manages three-, four-, and five-bedroom mountain log homes situated on the award-winning Headwaters Golf Course. Teton Springs is the only resort in Eastern Idaho to offer its own luxury spa, golf club and onsite fly fishing to their summer guests with heli-skiing, Nordic skiing, snowshoeing and snowmobiling in the winter. The private Headwater’s Club is an 18-hole course designed by the late Byron Nelson, Steve Jones and Gary Stephenson as well as a nine-hole Nelson short course and practice facility. The 5,000 square foot Stillwaters Spa & Salon, Headwaters Grille, Swim and Tennis Complex, and a 25-meter pool and Fitness Center, round out the resort’s facilities.
O.K., I’m taking some liberty with the words to that terrific tune sung by Nat King Cole many moons ago. Winter in the Yellowstone-Teton area is anything but lazy, but it is absolutely crazy, crazy good that is! Do people truly realize the sheer magnitude of our personal playground?! This entire Yellowstone-Teton area is there for our taking. To offer some perspective, Grand Teton and Yellowstone National Parks together total more than 2.5 million acres. Yellowstone Park alone has more acreage that the states of Rhode Island and Delaware combined. Granted, summer and fall seasons present the opportunity to sample a lot more of this area, particularly the backcountry, than say winter. Still, the possibilities for adventure are virtually endless in every season, and all in our very own backyard.
October in the Teton Valley – An Absolute Dream
Personally, I’m not ready to give up these glorious fall days. October has been an absolute dream in Teton Valley. Mother Nature has been ever so kind indeed. In fact, the Headwaters Golf Course at Teton Springs even extended their season for members and resort guests by two full weeks. That’s big! Sure, we had the reality check, around mid-October, when 2 to 3" of snow blanketed the valley floor. That’s pretty typical. I also think in some cosmic way it just happens so people at least start to think about snow tires and packing away their garden hoses. Yeah, October was a real beauty and the fall colors as splendid as I ever seen them.
Now moving on to winter, which just can’t come fast enough. It’s this interim time between seasons that can be so annoying. My snow tires are on, garden hoses secure in the shed (and sadly golf clubs too) and even the visqueen is stapled to unused doors and windows. Ah, looking at the world through opaque plastic. It’s a way of life when you live in the Northern Rockies and your whole life is about dealing with all this fabulous snow. But it’s why we’re here and why visitors come and take a peek for themselves each year. I love winter in the Tetons!
The Best Skiing in the Country is Right Here
Our local partners and friends from Teton Valley Trails and Pathways will start preparing the Nordic track at Teton Springs as soon as possible, usually around Thanksgiving. They sure groom a sweet track! Turkey day also signifies another winter highlight in our valley, the ski lifts at Grand Targhee start going round and round, or at least we hope so. This powder paradise is pretty consistent when it comes to opening its slopes on time and the highly anticipated grand opening for the 2011-12 season is slated for Friday November 24th. The other neighbor to Teton Springs is Jackson Hole Mountain resort, also known as "The Big One" and with good reason. With a solid dose of November snow they too could welcome skiers and snowboarders early. So, we’ll spend the next few weeks glued to the daily snow reports, exploring ski swaps and sport shops searching for the perfect powder skis, tele boards or snowshoes. We will be ready and we’ve got some incredible Winter Skiing packages available to choose from!
Looking for a Thanksgiving Getaway?
There’s something else to be excited about. If you book a few nights at Teton Springs Lodge & Spa over Thanksgiving weekend, they treat you to a night, yes, treat as in absolutely free! Check out some of our very affordable Fall Getaway packages. You can book a comfy lodge room, or a deluxe one or two bedroom suite, or really indulge and stay in one of the totally buffed out mountain log homes that dot the beautiful landscape at Teton Springs. They’re not only knock-out gorgeous but affordable too.
This book two nights and get one night free promotion applies to all the sweet accommodations at this resort so I would book early. At the same time I would also make my reservations for the famously fabulous traditional turkey dinner at the Headwaters Grille. If you insist on making mom’s tried-and-true cranberry stuffing yourself, that’s easy to do. You and the family can make all the fixings’ in your full-kitchen suite or private home.
Don’t Forget to Pamper Yourself While Staying at Teton Springs
There’s one more solid reason to visit Teton Springs over Thanksgiving this year. In the 5,000 square foot Stillwaters Spa & Salon, your 60 minute massage just turned into a 90 minute massage, all for the 60 minute price. After skiing all that powder, you’ll need it. I promise you.
Check out our many affordable and fun vacation and get-away packages, or give us a ring at 877.787.8757 to speak to the nice Guest Services staff. Let’s all make this a Thanksgiving to be truly thankful for; a chance to play in the snow with friends and family. Come on November!
I could never understand why people flocked to warm weather destinations over Spring Break. What’s so terrific about dipping your toes in the warm ocean, sipping umbrella-topped drinks by the pool and constant worry about that dreaded sunburn? Well, I guess if I really stretch my imagination I can fathom it at some level, at least deep in my sub-conscious. Particularly this winter. Unless you’ve been hibernating like Yogi the Bear the past few months, you know that very few Americans have escaped the wrath of Mother Nature. Even those safely nestled in the Deep South have experienced the shock and awe that come with finding yourself in a full-on blizzard. These guys don’t know what a snow plow is; have never owned a shovel and the only snowman their kids have ever known was named “Frosty.” The news was constantly filled with tragic tales of cars sliding off highways and people unable to reach their workplace for days.
While I could empathize with the angst many were feeling with every new major storm alert, these tales of blizzards sounded heavenly! It’s all in your perspective. We live in snow country here in the Yellowstone-Teton region. Our panic-button-pushing time comes when days pass without a winter storm or at least the promise of one. When Spring Break time arrives we are gloriously surfing a different kind of wave, the Teton Reef. As I speak, we’re in the throes of another amazing storm front trashing up against the Teton Mountains. While storms like this bring other regions to their knees, well, we’re simply reveling in the knee-deep powder.
For my money, March, and even well into April, is the best time to visit Teton Valley. Statistically, lots of new snow during this period is continually added to the charts but spring is definitely in the air. Days are longer (perfect for that après ski umbrella drink!), sun is warming (you’ll still take on that glorious bronze God/Goddess look, only with different tan lines!) and the sky takes on that cobalt blue hue that is as dramatic as the scenery itself. Jackson Hole Mountain Resort, a neighbor to the east has already reached 350” of snow this season and Grand Targhee, our hometown ski area, is mere inches away from hitting that same mark. It appears both resorts will easily top their 500” average snowfall this season (we love it when snowfall records are broken!). So, you can see there’s plenty of incentive to spend your much-needed Spring Break at Teton Springs Lodge & Spa this time around.
The fact that this luxury eastern Idaho resort sits perfectly perched between the two Wyoming ski & snowboard giants is only one of many reasons. The value is also there. The nice folks at Teton Springs are filling their 52 room lodge over President’s Weekend with their value-packed “buy three nights and your fourth is absolutely free!” and have decided to extend this generous deal over Spring Break as well. It even gets better; the free night applies not just to the lodge rooms but to the one and two bedroom suites and the 3, 4 & 5 bedroom Luxury Mountain Log Homes that border this exquisite property. And whatever you do, visit the Stillwaters Spa at Teton Springs; their treatments and guest service easily rival any spa experience found in a resort destination.
Getting here is easy. Fly into the Jackson Hole or Idaho Falls Airport and Teton Springs is a mere skip, hop or jump (short drive too!) from both. World-class skiing is just one of the many delightful activities that you and your family will enjoy while visiting this extraordinary area.
When you do take that break from surfing the big white waves at Targhee be sure to check out the 5,000 wintering elk still taking up residence at the Nation Elk Refuge in Jackson Hole; you won’t see this phenomenon on any silly beach!
