Business meetings always productive and inspiring at Teton Springs Lodge & Spa!
Whoever said that for a business meeting or corporate retreat to be successful you had to stuff participants into a stuffy conference room located in some generic USA downtown city or an off-airport hotel? I remember all too well being in just those kinds of sessions with other dozing participants taking in the classic power point presentations, and most often the less than inspiring lectures on budgets, sales projections, market analysis or whatever it is that people are meeting about. Do we really need a bland meeting room with four walls but no windows to be productive, and even better yet, inspired?
I watch and talk to the guests who are at Teton Springs Lodge & Spa for a meeting. The size and dynamics of the group vary. It’s usually a small business or non-profit from the region, an executive retreat or a sizable group of physicians from around the country gathered here with the hefty goal of trying to make the world a healthier place. There consistently seems to be a common thread among the participants as they pack up and leave Teton Springs; they feel more optimistic about their company or organization, and their place in it, and feel ready and excited to help achieve their team’s particular vision for the future. This place is simply perfectly suited for that kind of an outcome.
Beautiful Lodge Rooms and Luxury Mountain Log Homes
It’s relatively easy to get the creative juices flowing at Teton Springs. It starts with the lodging. The lodge rooms are lovely; quiet and clean with a hardy western flair. However, often the groups will opt for the luxury mountain log homes that dot this community perimeter. These 3, 4 and 5 bedroom “cabins” offer spacious open areas for entertaining (or perhaps that small meeting), private decks and patios .
Once outside, one simply has to open their eyes. It’s incredibly beautiful in every direction you look. The Headwaters golf course surrounds the property and it’s green and lush. Beyond the links are the Caribou-Targhee National Forest, the Big Hole and Teton Mountains. Not a bad backdrop. Frankly, it’s impossible not to be inspired by the views and the open space. But hey, don’t just take my word for it; there is
plenty of kudos to go around for this resort!
Sure, there are the more traditional meeting rooms at Teton Springs but they all sport windows looking out to this glorious Teton world. The Caddis Lake Overlook Tent is the latest meeting/event venue to be added by Teton Springs Resort and can accommodate large groups, wedding receptions and the like. It overlooks the 9th & 10th holes of the Headwaters golf course. Word of caution – the views can be very distracting.
Then there’s the Sage Café. The Sage is a warm, intimate room with a lovely patio affording great views of the surrounding mountains. Suffice to say, we have the right space for your next meeting or event and the staff at Teton Springs are notorious for taking care of everything – soup to nuts is this resort’s specialty.
I think it’s a given that meetings are probably not scheduled at Teton Springs because of the meeting facilities, as nice as they are. After all, everyone needs a break and when the day’s work is done, the group scatters with folks headed every which way to sample the incredible activities in this vast Yellowstone-Teton region.
Everyone needs a break and there are plenty of distractions; reeling in that monster cutthroat on the South Fork, a round of golf (or friendly group tournament) on the Headwaters course, day trips to the national parks or leisure hike into the national forest that surrounds this property. The list of things to do goes on and on.
Often, meeting goers head straight to the Stillwater Spa & Salon for a message or some other well-deserved treatment after straining that brain all day!

Warm, sun-filled days & cool breezy nights in the Tetons sounds like the place to be this Summer!
Even with all the crazy weather issues our nation has experienced over the past few years, I continue to be shocked, dismayed and totally in awe when I see what is happening again this summer across the country. Seriously. How does it ever get to be 106 degrees in Rapid City in June, and, will poor Florida even have the time to get back on its feet from recent catastrophic floods before their next wave of natural disasters hit, namely hurricane season?! Not to mention the brutal devastation occurring in Colorado. So much of the entire country is way out of whack for sure. Except for the Teton Mountain region, and for that, we are truly blessed.
The first few decades of my life was spent by the ocean. My grandparents owned a gracious home a mere block from the beach in South Jersey (thank goodness before Snooki and company permanently tarnished Jersey’s rep). What a glorious way to spend one’s entire summer vacation with my siblings and occasional stray cousin – covered in warm sand, riding waves and discovering the mysteries of the vast ocean landscape on my uncle’s fishing boat. I just returned back from a trip to the shore, a special place where that first pungent smell of the bay seems to jostle every single memory of those lazy, hazy, crazy days of summer.
Family Outdoor Activities for Everyone to Enjoy
Coming home to Teton Valley, I had the same flurry of anticipation and excitement as I landed in Jackson Hole and seeing those magnificent Tetons bathed in their evening light. Those jagged peaks rising into the cloudless sky always evoke an array of emotions in my heart as they seem to almost reach out and greet me like an old friend. As I touched down on Wyoming soil I also realized that I’ve celebrated an equal number of birthdays living both by the sea and in these glorious mountains – how did I ever get to be so darn lucky!
Yep, it’s good to be home, and fortunately for us "locals" and guests visiting the area, it’s easy to get here from virtually anywhere. Flying into Jackson Hole offers the traveler an incredible sense of arrival with the airport flanked by the iconic Tetons and the impressive Gros Ventre Mountains to the east. It’s also the only airport in the entire country located in a national park, the spectacular Grand Teton National Park no less. That explains why when you exit this airport you immediately spot an elk or two wandering through a herd of Bison and a moose leisurely enjoying an evening snack in the Snake River (just look for a gaggle of humans holding cameras.) http://www.jacksonholeairport.com/
While you may not spot the moose on your way to the resort driving the eastern Idaho route to Teton Springs, the short trip is equally as beautiful as you follow the Snake River surrounded by endless acres of wheat & barley bending in the breeze. Don’t forget to stop at the scenic overlook and when you reach Swan Valley, stop and sample one of their famous square ice cream cones. You’ll be finished it just as you drive into the resort.
Luxury Log Cabins, Beautiful Lodge Rooms
Hope you’re planning on a long excursion; there’s just so much to do, for all ages. Your lodging options will also cause your head to spin – but in a good way! My friends recently stayed in one of the luxury log mountain homes, and everything was deluxe but the price. It’s amazing how affordable these well-appointed and beautiful 3, 4 and 5 bedroom homes are and what a terrific place to come home to in the evening after a full, action packed day. Put your feet up on the patio, take in the scenery and plan tomorrow’s adventures. Lodge rooms and suites are also a crowd pleaser and it’s now easier than ever to book online.
Teton Springs Resort straddles the Wyoming/Idaho border, an area known for its natural resources and unlimited adventure opportunities. As a guest of Teton Springs Lodge, the term "perfect day" takes on many different meanings – enjoying the resort’s 25 meter pool and hot tubs, basketball and tennis courts, fitness center, reeling in that monster cutthroat in one of the resorts’ stocked ponds (we offer instruction too – for all ages!), a family-fun golf outing on the Par 3 golf course (or championship 18-hole Headwaters Golf course), and taking in the neighborhood on a mountain bike, which just happens to be the Caribou-Targhee National Forest.
Yellowstone Wildlife and Scenic Tour
Both the kids and adults will remember this outing for a lifetime! A comfortable Suburban pulls up outside your lodge door and off you go to Yellowstone National Park. It’s the only way to go – no distractions that come with driving yourself through the park and your professional guide points out all the breathtaking scenery and points-of-interest along the way. Your tour of Yellowstone is a full-day filled with information on the park’s history, its eye-popping geological formations (Old Faithful is just the most famous but you’ll see others that will take your breath away) and you’ll learn about the Native Americans and settlers who roamed and lived in this area years ago.
There are frequent stops for pictures and time to truly experience our country’s first national park. Your viewfinder will likely focus in on deer, elk, bears, buffalo, moose and other animals and birds living in this splendid and natural environment. You will also stop at the most spectacular Grand Canyon of Yellowstone and the Upper and Lower Falls of the Yellowstone River. We’ve got Summer vacation packages for the couple and entire family!
Book your trip to the Tetons now. As I’ve mentioned earlier, it’s the perfect time to be here! Call 877.787.8757 and visit Teton Springs Lodge. The real memories start here!
SKIERS, SHOPPERS AND KIDS All HAVE PLENTY TO BE EXCITED ABOUT THIS HOLIDAY SEASON!
Sometimes when we wish for something hard enough, it really does come true. This time it’s a simple request for a snow season like last year. Teton Valley had one of those over-the-top winters in 2010-2011. Grand Targhee reported close to 600"of snow during their operating season, and then mid April arrived. The lifts stopped, as did the resort’s impressive count on daily snow accumulation. When all was said and done, it was guesstimated when Targhee reopened in June that well over 800 inches had indeed fallen at the resort November thru June. So, many ask, why do our local resorts hit the stop button come spring in those magi al years when it’s obvious winter is steadfastly hanging on?
It’s a natural phenomenon really. Spring signals a time when our thoughts naturally turn from snowsports to other outdoor pursuits readily available in this amazing Yellowstone-Teton area. After all, all that snow turns to water and water flows into the rivers and rivers are where the fish live. You get my drift. When we’re not hunting the big browns still dazed from their long winter nap, we dust off the mountain bikes and lace up our running shoes. There are plenty of cool trails on the valley floor when the grass finally decides to break free and the days are longer, and the brilliant sun once again warms our soul. We have many fun and affordable Winter Package Deals for the family!
Oh, but I do digress. It’s only November and we already have lots to look forward to this holiday season. Storms continue to roll directly over the Tetons dropping impressive quantities of white gold, and that means turning the boards downhill and not the kind of turns that one potentially has to work for this time of year. The lifts will go round and round at both Grand Targhee and Jackson Hole (November 25 & 26 respectively) proving that the local prediction for a glorious repeat of La Nina is true. It appears she is indeed back, with vengeance, and winter aficionados are once again dancing in the streets.
