    Mountain Time Jackson hole may be widely known for its spectacular skiing in winter—its slopes boast a vertical drop of 4,100 feet—but its peak season is actually summer, when five times as many visitors come to bike, hike, fish, and simply relax at the down-to-earth resort. Vacation homes here, whether perched amid the rush of ski runs or set on secluded ranches, tend to exude the rustic aesthetic that has dominated the area since Jackson was settled as a cattle town in the late 1800s. A number of antique log cabins have been carefully preserved and updated, and newer builds, many with home theaters, bowling alleys, and indoor spas, are in keeping with that design sensibility—perfect for style-savvy guests who want authenticity without sacrificing comfort.

    The Cabin This 1940s log home has been meticulously restored and furnished with charming antiques and Great Camp decor. Teepee table lamps, vintage photographs, log-framed mirrors, and Native American textiles lend character, while a large central hearth original to the home serves as both a fireplace and an oven. Modern appliances and flat-screen TVs will appeal to the home’s 21st-century guests.

    Bedrooms: 4. Rates: $5,000 to $7,500 per week. Contact: The Clear Creek Group, 877.427.3400, www.theclearcreekgroup.com
