Fireside Resort Jackson Hole, Jackson Hole, WY

Just 5 1/2 miles from Teton Village, the cabins at Fireside Resort Jackson Hole have all the wintry musts—fireplaces, pillow-top mattresses, and decks big enough for snow gear—in a compact, eco-conscious package. The siding is reclaimed snow fencing from Interstate 80; the hardwood floors are made from Douglas fir deadwood; even the ceilings are recycled barn wood. The 25 cabins are close together, but they’re so well designed, with a glass doorway and high windows that let in lots of light, that your neighbors seem to disappear once you step inside. For extra privacy, they’re angled to maximize views of the woodsy property. The resort supplies firewood and s’mores kits for use at the shared campfires. When you’re ready to reenter civilization, free ski shuttles run on the hour. From $225; 2-night min.; firesidejacksonhole.com
