Alpine House, Jackson, Wyoming $$$$
Concierge.com's insider take:
In a town that can smother you with faux cowboy paraphernalia, the Alpine House is refreshingly devoid of buffalo and coyote motifs. Owned and operated by Hans and Nancy Johnstone, two homey former Olympians, it has a cheery ambience and a Scandinavian-inspired decor. A mural of brightly colored, strangely amiable Vikings adorns the bar, and each of the 22 rooms is individually decorated with antiques from New England handpicked by both of the owners' mothers. The aptly named Little Spa is more than adequate, since the clientele tends to be younger climbers and backcountry skiers.
