Welcome to the Elk Refuge Inn
The Elk Refuge Inn is nestled up against the foothills that surround the National Elk Refuge, about two miles north of downtown Jackson and about a five-minute drive to the entrance to Grand Teton National Park. Our location is unique in that our guests are able to enjoy the breath-taking natural landscapes found in Jackson Hole while still in close enough proximity to the historic town of Jackson to easily drop in and enjoy the numerous local restaurants, shopping opportunities, family and adventure activities, as well as nightlife.
Sitting adjacent to the National Elk Refuge, our visitors are granted an incredible vantage point to view the native wildlife. During the winter months, elk herds in the thousands come to feed at the refuge. As the morning sun rises it glistens off the freshly fallen snow, illuminating the magnificent sanctuary filled with countless bugling elk, grazing bison, soaring bald eagles, and graceful trumpeter swans gliding across the misting ponds. Often times many other indigenous animals can be seen in and around the refuge such as big horn sheep, foxes, and even a bear now and again! We are truly lucky to have such a breath-taking location to share with our guests from all over the world. Each and every day is filled with exchanging wildlife sightings, shared stories of adventure, and of course, an excellent recommendation for dinner and drinks at a favorite local restaurant after a full day of experiencing the magic that is Jackson Hole. Thus we kindly invite you to enjoy Jackson Hole with a stay at the Elk Refuge Inn. We’re the perfect launching point for your outdoor adventures.
