The Alpine House Lodge & Cottages

Built from century old timbers, our European-style hotel is run for, and by, people who share a passion for the mountains.

We built the first part of our lodge in 1994 as a seven room bed and breakfast, and expanded in 2001 to the twenty-two room lodge that we now have. In 2009, we renovated five cottages on Flat Creek, making The Alpine House Lodge and Cottages what it is today.

Through our travels, we set out to build a place in Jackson Hole that reflected the kind of hospitality you find in the small mountain towns of Europe. All the places we stayed were family owned, and each one had its own distinct charm. You could always count on a fluffy duvet and a welcoming atmosphere. You felt a connection to the area through your stay, since these small hotels were a reflection of the mountain way of life.

We both had the privilege of representing the United States in the Winter Olympics. Hans was a six year member of the U.S. Ski Team and competed in the Nordic Combined event at the 1988 Olympics in Calgary, Canada. He is an accomplished climber and ski mountaineer, with many first ascents and ski descents in the Tetons. Hans works as a guide for Exum Mountain Guides. Nancy was a six year member of the U.S. Biathlon Team and competed in the 1992 Olympics in Albertville, France.

We make our home in Jackson Hole where we live, work and play with our three children.

Decorated with care, each of our 22 guest rooms possess a perfect blend of Scandinavian elegance. Pine trim, pastels and European antiques complement subtle amenities such as down duvets, plush bath robes, luxurious linens and hand-crafted bath botanicals. Perfect after a long day of exploring the mountains!

Breakfast at The Alpine House is not to be missed. Relax in our sunny dining room, or on the porch in summer, while enjoying your first cup of organic coffee.  Each morning, our chef will prepare a delicious entree using only the finest ingredients, including our signature eggs benedict, lemon-ricotta blueberry pancakes, smoked salmon omelets, or buttermilk waffles topped with fresh strawberries and Vermont maple syrup. In addition, we serve a buffet of home-made granola, home-baked pastries and muffins, artisan breads and fresh fruit.

Nestled on the bank of Flat Creek, our creekside cottages cabins offer visitors more privacy and the opportunity to enjoy our wonderful outdoor patios, gardens and lawn. The cottages are perfect for long stays with families or entertaining small groups.
