“True Hideaway”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 18, 2011

Loved the tranquility of this place. Old fashioned charm. Ideal location near hiking trails. Splendid views. Not far from the hub-bub of downtown Jackson, but felt like another world. Those who want air conditioned standardized hotel rooms, this is not for you. Those who want a comfy cabin retreat in a very special part of the world: ideal! Share it with someone you love.

We have stayed at Trail Creek twice: each time traveling with horses and our dog. We found the owners to be friendly, knowledgeable and helpful--they know the area and trail riding options. The rooms are clean, quiet and close to the horse quarters. The setting has a fabulous view of Sleeping Indian and is only a few minutes drive to Jackson Hole. There are unlimiited trail riding options either directly from the property or within a few miles drive. We will go back often!

  • Liked — Great horse facility. Real ranch experience. Access to trails.
  • Disliked — Bed

This was my third visit to Trail Creek Ranch. I've come both alone and with my family, and on each visit I've been bowled over by the beauty of the place, the warmth of the hospitality, and the sense that this gorgeous piece of Old Jackson Hole is precious and unique.

One can do everything one does on an old-fashioned dude ranch--there are horses to ride and trails to hike--but unlike most dude ranches, Trail Creek allows short stays. Many of the guests never saddle up but simply use the ranch as a base from which to explore Jackson Hole. It's less than fifteen minutes from the town square in Jackson, and it's hard to believe anyone would prefer a crowded hotel in town to a bucolic cabin in a field of wildflowers, with a view of pasture and mountains. Alex, the ranch manager, can recommend float trips on the snake, fly-fishing charters, hiking trails in Teton National Park, and the like.

Denise's breakfasts are wonderful. Though you can eat alone if you wish, breakfast is often a time to meet other guests, who are invariably interesting. The ranch is child-friendly. (When I took my kids there a couple of years ago, the wrangler was extremely gentle and encouraging, and they greatly enjoyed their morning on horseback even though they had little riding experience.)

The cabins are simple but comfortable, cozy, and nicely appointed. Trail Creek isn't the place to come if you're looking for glitz, but if you want a deliciously old-fashioned slice of the real outdoors, I can't imagine anything more satisfying.

  • Liked — views, hospitality, feeling of "old Jackson Hole"
  • Disliked — no complaints whatsoever

What a wonderful family experience...we took a chance on staying at this ranch because it was one of only a few who allowed you in this area to stay less than one week. We have 3 children (ages 11, 10 and 7) and had an amazing experience here! Starting by getting greeted by Alex, the owner, who checked us into our cute cabin and had us select our cowboy boots for the stay! They have about 80 pairs on the front porch, all sizes, for everyone to wear while there! We met their fabulous and friendly staff, the gourmet cook who made unbelievable breakfasts and snacks for the afternoon and had a great time horseback riding with their horses. The location is perfect...only five minutes from the town of Jackson, yet you feel like you are really remote on this beautiful ranch overlooking the Teton Mountains! Our only regret....we didn't stay longer!!!
