Caldera House hotel - Jackson, USA
There’s never a bad time to start making plans for the winter. At the top of our list is Caldera House. Cocooned in Wyoming’s Teton Village at the foot of the Jackson Hole Mountain Resort, the boutique hotel is a public off-shoot of the members-only club and features eight sprawling suites – specifically, four 5,000 sqft four-bedroom suites and four 1,500 sq ft two-bedroom suites.
The bright, warmly furnished interiors by LA-based Commune and local studio Carney Logan Burke (who also designed the building) are quietly Euro-alpine by way of subway-tiled floors, knotted timber wall panels, oak accents, textured rugs, grey stone and low-slung customised furniture – the whole cosily warmed by wood-burning fireplaces, fire pits, and patios with the obligatory hot tubs.
The tectonic views of the Grand Teton National Park, just a few minutes drive away, through the floor-to-ceiling windows are, of course, impressive, but so is chef Paulie O’Connor’s Italian menu of potato gnocchi with morels, pizzas, and lasagne. If the on-site ski shop and ski-slopes don’t tempt, the yoga studio and spa might – the latter is dramatically headlined by an heated infinity plunge pool.§
