The only dilemma with planning family vacations in Idaho is trying to squeeze all of the amazing activities into one’s agenda. As a guest of Teton Springs Lodge & Spa, in Victor, Idaho, the term “perfect day” takes on many different meanings. The lodge was built in conjunction with the full-service Teton Springs Resort and it’s obvious that this destination was planned specifically for family vacations in Idaho. It’s literally a basecamp for adventure, whether you spend your entire time on resort grounds or venture out into the great Yellowstone-Teton territory. Exploration in this environment is highly recommended; it’s a wonderous world to be discovered.
A favorite summertime activity for all Teton Springs Lodge guests is a visit to the pool, just steps from Lodge accommodations. This is not your average hotel pool. It’s a 52-meter pool flanked by a large sunning deck and the kids will have a blast playing in geyser land. The glorious scenery alone surrounding this sports facility gives further credence to the special environment you’re in. If a snack is in order, or lunch, the poolside Rocky Mountain Beach Bar is happy to oblige offering delectable summertime fare. For a more formal dining atmosphere and a seasonal culinary menu that is sure to delight one and all palates, the Grille at Teton Springs is a favorite choice for both resort guests and local residents. More casual dining can also be had while enjoying a meal at the Grille’s full-service bar, with unobstructed views of the golf course a pleasant mealtime distraction. During the winter months guests cozy up to the Grille’s warm and welcoming fireplace.
With so many outdoor activities at one’s fingertips in this region, it’s difficult to imagine anyone would want to raise their heartrate with indoor conditioning activity. However, for the winter guest, or simply to get a quick exercise fix in any season, the Teton Springs Gym offers a full-service workout alternative. A solid training session with stationary bikes, elliptical machines and treadmills can be topped off by a relaxing steam in the Spa. Winter visitors can also improve their cardiovascular outlook with a jaunt on the resort’s cross-country groomed trails. It’s the optimum mode of transportation for checking out this vast neighborhood which borders the Caribou-Targhee National Forest.
Another amenity that sets this resort apart from all its local Idaho competitors is the Stillwaters Spa & Salon. Located on the first floor of the Lodge, this 5,000 square foot full-service spa & salon is further complimented by this area’s pure, clean mountain air that envelops this Teton region. An imaginative choice of services is available; massage therapies, body treatments, facials and skincare, nail and hair services.
The Teton Mountains should definitely be in your sights for ski getaways. The Teton Mountains host two of America’s best resorts, Grand Targhee & Jackson Hole Mountain Resort. Both of these Northern Rocky areas are easily accessible to Teton Springs by major airlines into two viable airport choices; Jackson Hole and Idaho Falls Regional airports. Families choosing Teton Springs Resort for a cozy winter getaway are best served by choosing a luxury mountain log home. Cabins range in size from 2,700 to 4,200 square feet.
