While there are certainly a healthy number of lodging alternatives to select from in the Jackson Hole area, picking a B&B in which to temporarily hang your hat means you’ll experience a more intimate style of accommodations here in the Tetons. A B&B offers a smaller, more homelike setting than a larger hotel or resort. And Jackson Hole Hideout is without a doubt a B&B option that boasts its own unique character and special brand of serenity.
Unique, Cozy Lodging Choice
Jackson Hole Hideout is at once far from the visiting crowds, yet still nearby all the action that Jackson Hole and its environs has to offer. Nestled amongst mighty evergreen trees and tucked back on a hill in Wilson, the B&B at first glance resembles a quirky treehouse. In fact, before Greg and Beth McCoy bought the B&B in late 2015, it was called A Teton Treehouse, due to its location in the trees high above the valley on the western slope of the Tetons, as well as its multi-layered aesthetic. The McCoys renamed the house “Jackson Hole Hideout” in a nod to the Old West and because the B&B is a true sanctuary—a “hideout”—in which to stay during a visit to Jackson Hole.
“If you have ever wanted to experience living in a mountain home, this is the place… The breakfasts were amazing and the inn was spectacular.” – TripAdvisor reviewer from Washington.
The McCoys performed a complete restoration of the B&B during the winter of 2016, updating all the bathrooms and bedrooms with new fixtures, showers, beds, paint and new carpet. They also updated the main living area, kitchen and outdoor areas. The new interior design also has a more Western flair than it had previously. The B&B features five spacious rooms on different levels of the house—including a suite—that are designed to fit anyone's budget and taste for lodging in Jackson Hole.
“It’s like staying in a house without the cost of renting one,” says owner Beth McCoy. “It’s cozy and comfortable," she says.
“Guests tell us it makes them feel like it’s their home,” she says. “They can cook on the grill if they’d like, and some even feel right at home enough to wear their pajamas at breakfast!”

Secluded—Yet Still Close To Everything
Jackson Hole Hideout may be a bit off the beaten path, but it is nevertheless close to all the ski resorts, town, hiking, biking, rafting, golfing, horseback riding, shopping, restaurants and, of course, two of the nation’s most spectacular national parks.
You came out here to experience this special place and you can still do that from Jackson Hole Hideout; it’s that convenient.
In fact, the B&B is just 15 minutes from Teton Village and Jackson Hole Mountain Resort and a 15-minute drive to downtown Jackson and Town Square. The Granite Canyon Entrance to Grand Teton National Park is approximately 17 minutes away; Yellowstone National Park is an hour-and-a-half drive.
Peaceful, Restful, Serene
Jackson Hole Hideout’s more home-like setting means the innkeepers—Beth and Greg—are readily available for answering questions and offering suggestions about where-to-go and what-to-see in Jackson Hole. The B&B has the extra caveat of feeling like a true retreat after a busy day spent sightseeing and taking advantage of all the outdoor physical activities in Jackson Hole and Grand Teton National Park.
“You can go out for a day hike and when you come back to our B&B, still feel as if you are out in the woods without having to actually camp out,” Beth says. “It’s adventurous to be up in the trees.”
The Hideout offers two rooms with king-sized beds, two with queen beds, and a suite called the GunSlinger which features two private rooms. One of the rooms in the suite has a king bed and beautiful window seats overlooking the valley, as well as the forest. The other room can be configured as another king room or two twin XL beds. It’s the only room with a private entrance and large foyer, and is ideal for families, honeymoons and anniversaries.
All rooms have private decks, allowing you to wake up to the sunrise while spying some wildlife below and taking in the scents of the forest. There is also a firepit on one of the decks off the breakfast room where you can relax day or night.
In addition to the breakfast room, the B&B has a generous-sized, yet cozy, living room with a large, flat-screen TV and a huge stone fireplace, plus lots of books for you to peruse. The subjects of these books include the history of Jackson Hole, the American West, the Old West, Yellowstone and Grand Teton National Parks, wildlife and photography.
A couple from Michigan that was recently checking into Jackson Hole Hideout on their first trip to Jackson Hole, said they chose a B&B “because it’s different and it’s friendly. You get to know the local area and feel like you live here.”
“You’re not hanging out in a hotel room… Instead, you’re hanging out in the B&B’s living room; it’s more relaxed and inviting.”
So, if you like that home sweet home ambiance, and you want to also feel like you’re a local, then Jackson Hole Hideout is for you.
