Set in an idyllic location near Wyoming's renowned Grand Teton National Park, the Caldera House hotel celebrates the area's remarkable natural beauty, while also providing guests a spectacular hospitality experience. 

Elements of the American West blend with natural materials and rich textures to create a warm, welcoming retreat that celebrates great design.

Created by owner Wesley Edens—with the help of friends and co-owners Michael Novagratz, David Barry, and Randal Nardone—Caldera House blends contemporary European design with the spirit of the American West to create a posh, modern ski lodge. 

The impressive property which includes four 5,000-square-foot, four-bedroom suites, along with four 1,500-square-foot, two-bedroom suites is not only a place to stay, but a complete experience of high-end restaurants, bars, and even a locker room and ski shop for the outdoor enthusiasts. 

The Valles Suite radiates rustic luxury with warm textiles and accents, contemporary furnishings, a wood-burning fireplace, as well as various natural elements. 

The warm tones of wood echo the birch, pine, and maple forests of the surrounding vistas. 

This private bath is a dream retreat after a long day exploring.  A tin soaker-tub, lush fur rug, and large tiles in natural tones create an idyllic, calming escape. 

The warm and welcoming interiors carried throughout the complex are the collaboration of two award-winning design firms: Los Angeles based Commune, who led the design of the public spaces and two suites; and local studio Carney Logan Burke who designed six suites and the building architecture. Together, they have created a modern chalet that is the perfect stomping grounds for experiencing all of Jackson Hole in one all-inclusive stop.

Large Sheepskin Throw
This natural, ethically sourced sheepskin comes from the Northwest coast of Ireland, a region known for incredibly soft and dense sheep’s wool.

Warm rustic colors make bold statements against the calming natural palette. No detail goes unnoticed—even the headboard is a custom-made creation that embodies modern rusticity. 

The Newberry Suite is a sophisticated take on the American West. With deep wood tones, oak millwork, artisan furniture, and floor-to-ceiling windows, this suite is a lovely place to enjoy views of the surrounding mountains.

Contemporary in design, the suites include custom-built furniture and carefully procured accent pieces that fill the spacious living rooms and bedrooms. With floor-to-ceiling windows, the mountains are always in view. Private outdoor balconies provide an ideal location to relax after a day on the slopes, while still being immersed in natural wonders. 

In the Pacana Suite, modern European influences are replicated in the clean lines and exquisite detailing. 

The rough texture of the tiled walls adds a natural element to the refined, elegant bath.  

Large living spaces embody modern comfort.  With a stone-clad fireplace, lush furnishings, and custom built-ins, you might want to extend your stay, multiple times.

Each suite includes private outdoor balconies complete with fire pits. Thanks to the snowmelt patios, you can enjoy this view and the great outdoors year round.

With elements of the American West, the luxury suites evoke nodes of a simple, rustic cabin. Warm, cozy, and inviting, the spaces celebrate the great outdoors through design and wonder. 

Prints, plaids, and furs provide warmth and coziness, while introducing nods to the rugged American West. 

Simple and elegant, the suites are sure to provide a remarkable stay for enjoying nature year-round. 

The two bedroom suites resemble a modern take on a classic mountain cabin. Thanks to the large windows and a spacious balcony, guests can soak in the views in their own private setting.

Each unit is complete with a chef's kitchen and high-end appliances. Simple, elegant, and full of light, they are delightful kitchens for those who desire to cook a meal high up in the mountains. 

The ski-in, ski-out location is the perfect place to pursue your Jackson Hole bucket-list. Stop by the Mudroom to fine-tune your ski gear before you head out on the mountains for the day. Upon return, culinary delights, warm fire pits, and relaxing environments will be awaiting to fulfill your luxurious mountain dreams. 

Italian comfort-food meets vintage, club-like interiors at the Old Yellowstone Garage. With mountain-facing views, an outdoor patio, and upscale mountain furnishings, this onsite restaurant is an ideal location to enjoy delicious cuisine accompanied by a great view.

Clad in copper, the bar at the Yellowstone Garage is a statement piece which blends the rich, warm tones, natural elements, and modern, rustic flair displayed throughout the complex. 

There is also a boot room and changing area for skiers, which features rustic wooden lockers, dark accents, and decorative rugs to continue to draw in the mountain style.
