Jackson Hole, Wyoming and us. A little of the history and the difference.

Jackson, Wyoming is a study in contrasts. In the early 20th century it was horse thieves and royalty. Today it is Old West saloons and art galleries, incredible outdoor recreation and outstanding restaurants, world class skiing and European spas. It has always attracted those who want to savor the full flavors of life.

Like the town itself, the Rusty Parrot is a paradox: A family-run 32-room lodge that's one of the top small luxury hotels in the world. It caters to the traveler—not the tourist. The owners and staff delight in sharing inside information about the town and area they love. Their passion for Jackson Hole and personal attention to guests just isn't found at larger hotels. Earning the AAA Four-Diamond award for eighteen years in a row attests to that passion.

Even the name is surprising—parrots aren't the first animals that come to mind when you think of Wyoming wildlife! The story of how the Rusty Parrot got its name has evolved into a campfire tale. The only way to get the real story is from Ron Harrison, the owner. When you stay at the lodge, you can see the Parrot behind the front desk…and get Ron to tell you the real story.

A member of Small Luxury Hotels of the World, the Rusty Parrot is Jackson's most acclaimed lodge. The hotel has earned a long list of awards and been featured in national and international publications. Some of the highlights are below:
