Step into a simpler, quieter time. Beautiful views all around, horses happily eating, wildlife coming and going. This is the real deal - an authentic guest ranch that has been greeting guests for over 70 years. Summer or winter, there is no prettier place to be.


ne of the most unique and beautiful places in the country. Grand Teton and Yellowstone National Parks, the Snake River, wildlife, adventure - the possibilities are endless.


Private one- and two-bedroom cabins, suites and simple guest rooms keep our guests coming back year after year. Kitchens or kitchenettes, full private baths, comfortable beds donned with yummy pressed sheets and fluffy down comforters for the cool nights. Sitting porches to enjoy the clean mountain air. You'll find your home away from home in the mountains.

"Trail Creek Ranch was charming and centrally located. The ranch has a rich history and wonderful, accommodating employees. I loved enjoying a hot cup of coffee in the morning overlooking fields of horses with a backdrop of mountain ranges. The cabins were adorable and provided enough privacy from other guests staying at the ranch plus the beds were comfy! It was a short drive into Jackson and Grand Teton National Park. Will definitely stay here during our next visit!"
Trip Advisor Reviews
"Trail Creek Ranch is a magical gem tucked into the mountains, offering good old-fashioned hospitality and privacy on the most beautiful ranch in the valley of Jackson Hole. We offer a variety of accommodations, with a variety of price points, free wi-fi and an outdoor heated swimming pool. One of the last authentic Jackson hole experiences. Close to Grand Teton National Park, the town of Jackson and Jackson Hole Mountain Resort but peace and quiet away from the crowds. This is a little slice of heaven!"
Trail Creek Ranch is a private, clean, beautiful environment that is easily accessible. We liked the casual style and trust between you and the guests. We look forward to a return visit.

This is a real treat from the hustle and bustle of town. A fantastic setting.

Loved the room – very cozy and beds are very comfortable. Beautiful ranch – love the view and the land.
We highly recommend Trail Creek for anyone looking for a peaceful escape to enjoy the beauty of the mountains. Trail Creek is very laid back and family oriented.

Your setting was the perfect place for our engagement- secluded, cozy, gorgeous views – just what we envisioned! We’re planning to return to celebrate in the coming years with you!

Amazing Winter Destination! My wife and I just got back from an amazing stay at this historic ranch in winter! It’s gorgeous with a nice blanket of snow, and the rooms are cozy and comfortable! The views right out of our bedroom were spectacular! Our hosts were gracious, kind and happy to provide the local knowledge that made our stay even more special. We saw a variety of wildlife, from the horses that live in the pasture, to elk and moose that pass through the ranch occasionally. If you’re there to ski at Jackson Hole, you’ll be closer here than if you stayed downtown, and it’s a short drive to a big park-and-ride where you can catch the free shuttle buses the rest of the way to the resort and avoid parking hassles. There’s also amazing cross-country skiing right out of the ranch! We thoroughly enjoyed our stay, and highly recommend it!

Best ski touring lodging in the world! We stayed with my wife and two kids. Skied, watched wildlife, enjoyed a total wilderness lodging experience in complete comfort. Escaped the Jackson craziness into our little perfect world at Trail Creek Ranch. Clean, easy, perfect, friendly.

Amazing, peaceful property. My husband and I stayed in the Suite for 5 nights at the beginning of September. I am a horse person so sitting on my porch every morning watching the horses grazing, running around and being wrangled to come in was amazing. The view from our Suite was amazing. We saw Moose and Bear walking across the fields and beautiful sunrises and sunsets. It is such a beautiful setting. Everything was clean and comfortable and Alex, Mugs and all of the staff were so welcoming and friendly. We loved every minute of our stay and would love to come back again! Thank you!!
Love Everything about Trail Creek Ranch Our cabin was nestled in the forest with incredible views all around. Everybody we spoke to was helpful, friendly and did their utmost to make sure we were comfortable and happy during our stay. We will definitely visit Trail Creek Ranch again.

Alex's Cabin/Trail Creek Ranch I almost hesitate to post this review for fear future availability might be more competitive. However, our stay at Trail Creek Ranch was so wonderful, I feel I owe it to fellow travelers to share our experience. If you are seeking to relax in a beautiful setting with amazing mountain views surrounded by wildlife, horses and ranch animals with crisp clean air and delicious drinking water from mountain streams, then Trail Creek is the place. Convenient to Jackson and the town of Wilson along with the Grand Tetons and Yellowstone, you will be able to enjoy town activities, good restaurants and shopping all the while retiring to a serene setting for rest and relaxation. The property owners are delightful, helpful if needed, but also good at respecting privacy. The ranch history is very interesting and you will be happy to be a part of it, if only for a short stay. The cabin was clean, efficient, comfortable and cozy. All provisions for cooking were available (but it was a vacation, I indulged in all the good local restaurants). One night we had a catered meal from a great place in Wilson. We did a few easy breakfasts...but tried our best to stay out of the kitchen. A really nice feature is the washer and dryer making it easy to pack lightly. The master bed was comfortable and warm allowing us to sleep in cool temperatures (20 degrees) with windows slightly open for a delicious night's sleep. One morning enjoying our coffee, we had a moose walk right in front of our cabin. And while the hiking in the National Parks is great, it was good to have developed trails ascending Teton Pass just behind the ranch property. We are making this an annual destination! So maybe you better make your reservation now, LOL.
From the first-day greeting to the lilacs in the cabin, Trail Creek Ranch is top-notch with every detail considered. Our family of 4 adored the Wyllis cabin and it was the perfect way to end our week in Teton National Park. Thanks to Alex, Bill, and the TCR crew for making us feel welcome and comfortable. We plan to highly recommend Trail Creek Ranch to our friends and hope to make it back some day!
I cannot say enough about our 3 night stay at Trail Creek Ranch. Our hosts Alex and Mike were so hospitable and made us feel like home from the moment we arrived. We stayed at the cabin “The Ritz” and it was perfect for our family of 4. There is a bedroom upstairs with 2 twin beds and then the queen room down. A grill, coffee maker, mini fridge, and small kitchen with dishes, utensils etc. would have allowed for us to cook if we had wanted to. But we chose to eat at the several amazing restaurants nearby. Wilson is a 1.5 mile drive with some incredible places - Nora’s Fishcreek for breakfast is a must! And Streetcar is an excellent choice with a great variety of quality food from Tacos, hamburgers, Poke bowls, fresh salads, and more. Or head into Jackson for more great choices - Snake River Brewing is recommended. We also were able to book a Wildlife safari with Brush Buck into the Tetons and it was incredible. We saw a grizzly and 4 cubs, a moose, mule deer, elk, pronghorn, and marmots. The boys also had an AMAZING guided fishing expedition up to Jenny lake (the Snake River is not fishable this time of year but the lake trout was abundant!). But back to the ranch. The Ritz cabin is adorable with a screened-in porch, fireplace, winding staircase and HUGE open windows that allowed us to admire the incredible view. Lilacs were left for us upon our arrival. The property is a horse ranch. Also there are a bunch of other cabins to choose from so if you need something larger, etc. check out the website. The horses are from private borders so you can’t ride them, but you can feed them apples or carrots; which was the highlight of our experience here. Just spending time with the horses, walking trails, etc. There are several trailheads 1/2 mi up the road from the ranch, which one leads you up to to an incredible calm lake at the top of Teton Pass. I would HIGHLY recommend this amazing gem in Jackson Hole. It was the perfect place to rest and experience being on a horse ranch and enjoying the majesty of the Tetons. I cannot thank Alex and Mike enough for everything!!! Read less
We've stayed in many places around the world, and Kevin and I agree that Alex's cabin at Trail Creek Ranch was the very best of all. We had a very special and memorable week.

Love this Place Trail Creek Ranch is a "Diamond in the rough" so beautiful, peaceful and charming. Nestled in the quaint village of Wilson, with surrounding views of the Tetons. It was nice to be out of the busy streets of Jackson but close enough to enjoy everything Jackson and Teton Village have to offer. Alex has a long history with the ranch and knows most anything you would like to know about the area, great restaurants, hikes, walks, guides, fishing, even looking up old friends. Trail Creek ranch is a reason to revisit Jackson Hole.
Heaven Alex, Mike, Jules , the horses, the moose, the cabins, the snow the mountains, the magic. Came to WY solo and had the time of my LIFE / even extended my stay. The most magical trip and I take many. I miss everyone terribly and will never forget my stay at the ranch. Every day was full of adventures with even two weeks not being enough time. During my time I got to stay in two different rooms/Alex' cabin and you literally cannot go wrong. Did I mention it was magical? Thank you Trail Creek Ranch!
Elopement Trail Creek Ranch, Alex and family exceeded our expectations for our recent elopement. We stayed in Alex’s cabin and it was just perfect and had absolutely everything we needed. Alex had great recommendations and was extremely helpful throughout our planning process and stay. Our private ceremony took place in front of the most beautiful barn with our only guest being a wild moose! We look forward to many more trips to Trail Creek Ranch.

Family trip to Jackson Stunning property & great hospitality. My family came here in February for a week to ski at Jackson Hole. the ranch is just a 15 minute drive or so from the resort, and 15 mins to downtown Jackson. Super easy but location in Wilson made it out of the bustle of downtown Jackson. We had one suite (Betty’s suite) and a cabin (Alex’s cabin). Everything was super clean and cozy, and well thought out (e.g. extra blankets, many hooks for jackets / ski wear). The suite had a peaceful view over the horse pasture and we’d regularly see moose in the distance around the property. We also got to participate in some ranch life (!) and fed horses one morning with the crew on a cool vintage snowcat. You can see it pictured on their instagram. Super fun. This place is very much a one-of-a-kind gem. Can’t wait to come back!
What a place! We just returned from our trip to Jackson and had the most incredible time at the Trail Creek Ranch. Alex, Mike, and Jules were wonderful hosts. They go out of their way to make sure you have a great experience. The Moose and Elk passed through the property each day and were so much fun to watch!
Beautiful and Quaint Trail Creek Ranch was charming and centrally located. The ranch has a rich history and wonderful, accommodating employees. I loved enjoying a hot cup of coffee in the morning overlooking fields of horses with a backdrop of mountain ranges. The cabins were adorable and provided enough privacy from other guests staying at the ranch plus the beds were comfy! It was a short drive into Jackson and Grand Teton National Park. Will definitely stay here during our next visit!
Trail Creek Ranch Trail Creek Ranch is a must when visiting Jackson Hole. The ranch was unbelievably beautiful, Alex was very accommodating and the cabins are very well maintained. Trail Creek is just a short drive to Jackson Hole airport, The Grand Tetons and downtown Jackson. We will certainly be visiting Trail Creek Ranch again!
Incredible ranch in the heart of Jackson Hole Trail Creek Ranch is truly a piece of paradise in the heart of Jackson Hole. The Sargent Room was perfect for my husband and me. The room was beautifully appointed, and had everything we needed to relax and unwind after days of hiking. The Adirondack chairs on the porch provided a perfect place to sip morning coffee, and better yet to drink wine and watch the sunset over the beautiful mountain range. Everyone was so helpful and kind, a special shoutout to Alex for texting me to tell me that I left my sapphire ring in the room after we had checked out. That says everything! We will be back to Jackson Hole and we definitely will stay at Trail Creek Ranch!
Loved Our Stay at Trail Creek Ranch Trail Creek Ranch is a hidden gem! We are a family of 4, who had a wonderful stay at The Ritz. From the views to the hospitality, everything exceeded our expectations. You get the "dude ranch" feel but with the freedom to plan your own vacation.
An amazing, wonderful place We stayed in Betty's suite 5 nights in early May. It's hard to describe how beautiful the property is. Because there are so few cabins you feel like you have the whole ranch to yourself. "Check in" is when you see the owner in the driveway and she gives you the keys and shows you your cabin. It honestly feels like you're staying with friends. The cabins are cozy, comfortable and nicely outfitted and decorated. Huge bathroom with a very large tub. Comfortable bed. The kitchenette was a huge benefit---small fridge/freezer, toaster, microwave and coffee pot. This is a working ranch so you sit on your porch, drink coffee (stronger stuff in evening) and relax as the only sounds you can hear are the horses or the adjacent stream. There's just something about stepping off the porch and feeding the horses. There are many hiking trails literally out the back door. The trailhead is a 5 minute walk. Wilson is a 4 minute drive and Jackson about 10-15 minutes. My wife and I travel a lot, and I can honestly say this was one of the most relaxing, beautiful vacations we've ever had. Alex the owner and Jules were simply amazing and friendly. We definitely plan on coming back!
Wonderful Winter Retreat My wife and I spent a week in February in Alex's Cabin at the Trail Creek Ranch. The cabin is very comfortable with a full kitchen and bathroom, bedroom and living/dining area which looks out over the magnificent ranch property with mountains and moose in view. The ranch is a short drive to the towns of Wilson and Jackson where there are numerous shopping and dining options. Alex, Jules and Mike provided exceptional hospitality with recommendations for activities and dining as well as the opportunity to share in feeding the animals. There are a number of other suites and cabins on the property but the size of the ranch makes you feel like you have the beautiful property to yourself. The ranch receives significantly more snow than the nearby towns though the roads in and out are well maintained in the midst of the winter wonderland. A stay here is a unique lodging experience without compromise and we will be back for a fall visit!

Things to Do

Trail Creek Ranch is minutes to all that Jackson Hole has to offer! Incredible hiking, climbing, world class fly fishing, rafting the Snake River, and of course visiting our wondrous National Parks. Visit our Things to Do page for so many fun adventures.

TCR is just minutes from our little town of Wilson, where you can get just about anything for your stay at our local general store – Hungry Jacks. Wilson is also the home of The Stagecoach Bar, where you can go western swing dancing with the locals every Sunday night – famous for the Stagecoach Band, who has played every Sunday night for over 45 years!  

We are only 12 miles to the town of Jackson and minutes from the Moose Wilson road (the scenic route) taking you to Grand Teton National Park.

Places to eat

Wilson is small, but mighty when it comes to food and restaurants. Right in downtown Wilson (3 minutes from the Ranch) you will find Nora's Fish Creek Ranch - a James Beard recipient (have the Huevos), Pearl Street Bagel (the everything with herb), Rations - cool new lunch place at the uptown gas station, StreetFood at the Stagecoach Bar (tacos or bowls) and Chippy's (whatever she has!). Further afoot on the Teton Village Road is Persephone Bakery (anything!), and The Calico Restaurant (anything, again!). 

Lots of options in Jackson, too. You will not go hungry!
