What's great about staying in Teton Village during your trip to Jackson Hole? 

Teton Village is a quintessential little town at the base of the Tetons that offers the perfect basecamp for Jackson Hole summer adventures. Quieter than Downtown Jackson, the Village offers space to roam, explore, relax and spot wildlife, while offering excellent restaurants, shops, live music and events.

We love the resort-style area of Teton Village for lots of reasons, but here are just a few: 

  1. Teton Village has fewer crowds. Less crowds means more space to roam and explore. Several of our homes and condos are tucked into the forest at the base of Jackson Hole Mountain Resort, walking distance to the heart of Teton Village and all the shops & restaurants.
  2. Teton Village is close to everything. It's an easy 20-30 minute drive to Downtown Jackson Hole and just a 5-minute drive into Grand Teton National Park.
  3. Teton Village has the best views. Come back from your adventures to the perfect home or condo with incredible views! 

While the town of Jackson is lively - full of specialty shops, events, boutiques, restaurants and more - it tends to draw quite the crowds in the summer season. Teton Village boasts fewer crowds during summer, plus plenty of activities to enjoy. It's also prime for wildlife watching as moose, bears and other critters call this area home. It's the perfect central location for a Jackson Hole vacation.

What’s the Difference Between Teton Village and Jackson?

Teton Village is a mountain village area located just a short drive outside of the city of Jackson. This area is situated at the base of Jackson Hole Mountain Resort and is home to many boutique shops, awarded restaurants, family activities and more.

Both Jackson and Teton Village have a wide range of fine dining, entertainment, and adventure options to choose from. The main difference between Teton Village and Jackson are the crowds. The summer months tend to draw a larger crowd of people to the town Jackson, while Teton Village offers a much more relaxed pace. We have a wide range of vacation homes, condos and cabins in the Teton Village area to fit every budget and family size.

Teton Village is located close to the Teton Mountain Range and is about:

  • 30 minutes from the town of Jackson

  • 5 minutes from Grand Teton National Park

  • 1.5 Hours from the South Entrance of Yellowstone National Park
