Private villa rentals and yacht charters with a sense of home & style.

Jackson, Wyoming

Redwood and stone may be classic building materials for a mountain home in the West, but this particular wood-and-stone lodge is hardly traditional. Ranch View Lodge is airy and contemporary with a focus on the wilderness setting of the East Gros Ventre Butte above the Snake River Valley and near the Amangani resort. Comfortable, overstuffed furnishings and a large gas fireplace offset and soften a wall of windows in the great room. The kitchen, all wood and black stone, is equipped with high-end appliances, a wine refrigerator, and sliding doors that open onto a stone patio with a gas grill and a hot tub. The master bedroom also leads to the patio, and the four other bedrooms include a bunk room with two pairs of stacked, stick-built beds. A lower-level media room is a cozy cocoon for watching television or playing poker.

Rates: $14,392 to $20,160 weekly. Contact: The Clear Creek Group, 866.724.1884, info@tccgjh.com, theclearcreekgroup.com
