Moose Head Ranch is completely surrounded by Grand Teton National Park, providing guests with a panoramic vista of the Teton Range. Imagine riding with your family and seeing elk, bison, mule deer and antelope up close. Picture meadows of alpine flowers such as lupine and fireweed as you gaze down at the legendary Snake River. At the end of each ride relax on your cabin porch or the lodge deck with the majestic Tetons in the distance.
Unique Features: The Grand Teton National Park supports a rich array of wildlife and stunning scenery, including the iconic, rugged mountain range that gives the park its name. Sometimes overlooked due to its proximity to Yellowstone National Park, Grand Teton is a hidden gem teeming with history, geologic mystery and majestic creatures.
Accommodations: Moose Head accommodates approximately 44 guests in comfortable and well appointed cabins that are scattered amongst the cottonwoods and pines. Many overlook the stocked trout ponds. Most have wood burning stoves and all are equipped with small refrigerators and coffee machines, and ice is delivered daily. Flowers are an important part of Moose Head, and hanging baskets can be found on cabin porches.
As Suite As It Gets: When money is no object, go for the Cabins. They are all equally as nice. Enjoy total relaxation. Have some early morning coffee in front of a roaring fire. Put your feet up and relax on the deck after a ride. Play ping pong with the kids. Bring your laptop and check your e-mail. Grab a cookie and some lemonade and read the paper. Join other guests for cocktails and hors d’oeuvres before sitting down to a delicious gourmet meal.
Dining: Breakfast offers an extensive buffet of freshly cut fruit and pastries with hot entrees made to order from the kitchen. The lunch buffet has a variety of fresh salads, a hot soup and entrée as well as Boar’s Head meats for sandwiches. Multiple dinner entrées, including fresh fish and game selections, are ready to entice you. The Sunday Night Cookout is often considered the highlight of the Moose Head week when guests and staff come together to eat, mingle, toast s’mores and sing.
Activities: Saddle up and go for a morning, afternoon or an all day ride. Moose Head’s minimum riding age is 6. Families and couples ride in small groups always accompanied by a wrangler. Try fly-fishing on one of the well stocked ponds. They have the equipment and would love to teach you if you have the desire to learn. The more experienced angler may want to fish the Snake River, which is easily accessible from the Ranch. Take a light hike down to the river, or simply relax and enjoy the splendor of the Grand Tetons from your porch. Challenge your kids to a game of horseshoes or croquet.
Spa & Fitness: There is no spa or fitness center on the property.
