In 1994, after spending several holidays in the Teton Valley, Frank Reilly fell upon the Rancho Alegre property. Frank and brother, Tom, had an interest in Jackson Hole, mainly for the unsurpassed powder that Jackson Hole’s ski seasons offer and the majestic beauty of the area. Frank decided the best way to know a place was to experience it, so he checked into the lodge as a guest for a month. Immediately, he fell in love with the property and the house. Shortly thereafter, he became the proud owner of Rancho Alegre Lodge. Since July 1995, thousands of guests have come to Rancho Alegre Lodge to experience all that Jackson Hole has to offer. There is no better way to enjoy this valley than to experience it from a hill-top with awe inspiring 360 degree mountain views and the comforts and charm of this gracious home.
Frank purchased this Lodge in 1995
Why Frank chose Jackson
The comfort and serenity of Rancho Alegre Lodge provides a backdrop for lifelong memories and traditions. The perfect blend of Eastern ambiance and gracious hospitality of the West offer year-round enjoyment for all who gather at this home away from home.

Paradise in Jackson Hole
If you have a large party and you’re looking for a beautiful scenic location that can accommodate your group, this is truly one incredible property . There is someone available daily for any questions and this house has everything that you would ever need for your vacation in Jackson Hole. Also, there is a very special additional experience with the beautiful animals that live on the property... And I will leave it at that. Five stars all the way !!
Thank you for the nice review,, Hope to have you back soon. Frank
Owner not responsive to condition of kitchen
We arrived with $500 worth of food to cook Thanksgiving dinner only to find stove and ovens inoperable. Owner told us, after we arrived, he had “ordered parts to fix it”. Not acceptable! Also, we found the dryer inoperable after doing wash. Owner said he had ordered a new one.....too little., to late. We had our two dogs with us which website said was acceptable when I originally booked. Owner called me and was VERY rude and threatened to make us leave. Our dogs were never off leash. We left the property cleaner than we found it in spite of being deceived as to condition of facilities.
Unfortunately I was not able to host your group as I was visiting my family in Florida. The gentleman who was watching over the property called me upon your arrival to inform me of two dogs. I strictly do not accept dogs and it says that clearly on the contract. I love dogs but as you are aware I have free roaming barn animals and dogs have killed many of my ducks and chickens in the past. As of the stove/oven, ... I explained to you that the group before you, a wedding had broke the knobs. There are a total of three ovens in the lodge and I suggested for you group to use the other two. The Dryer in the garage stopped working ironically before your arrival. Both the Dryer and Stove have been fixed. Jackson is a small town and it is extremely difficult to get help in a timely fashion. As per the dogs... I had to have the carpets professionally cleaned for urine stains as well as constant vacuuming for dog hairs . I take pride in my lodge and the reviews I receive. I am sorry that some things were not working. I hope your family enjoyed what Rancho Alegre Lodge truly offers besides the mishaps you experienced.
All the best ,
Great Change from the Beach
Our family usually vacations at the beach. Decided this year to change it up. The result was fantastic. Eight adults, two teenagers, and one child....they were all fully entertained for the week. Location of Rancho Alegre Lodge is perfect. Minutes from Jackson Hole and Teton National Park. Yellowstone National Park was an easy drive. Rafting, fishing, and horseback riding were all within minutes. And we got to gaze at the milky way....that never happens at the beach.
The property is very unique. Very well layed out with plenty of group space, and private space. And the kitchen was awesome. With several good cooks in the family, there was nothing they needed that was not available. We even had one night catered (the night it was my turn to cook) and Frank's recommendation was great.
The farm animals provided an added experience that we had not anticipated. Goats, chickens, ducks, pigs, and a horse kept everyone entertained and inquisitive. We did not know goats have some much individual personality. The teenagers even got up early to "slop" the pigs. Oh, and all the eggs we could consume.
Frank was a great host. From the first communication to our departure Frank made all efforts to ensure our stay was what we wanted. No requests were denied. Additionally, Frank is a great story teller.
Overall, Rancho Alegre Lodge was a great break from the beach. So much so everyone wants to come back to the mountains again next year.
Thank you very much for this review.I enjoyed sitting on front deck with the Wilsons nightly!! Come back soon Frank
Stayed for a family reunion
Stayed for a family reunion and the communication was amazing and everything was great. Would highly recommend
Great spot for family reunion
We hosted a week long family reunion at the Rancho Alegre Lodge and everyone had a fabulous time. The owner is easy to work with and very accommodating. We did his breakfast option most days and it was great. The house is amazing and has so many sitting areas and living rooms making conversations easy.. The 8 bedrooms was perfect for our families. The farm animals are very entertaining as well.
Paul family reunion
Best reunion ever for our ten family members! Great host! Incredible lodge with 8 bedrooms (sleeps up to 24 in beds!), library bar, incredible kitchen (breakfast buffet that changed each morning), den and family room with pool table and large dining room. Tetons views from large deck. The best fun was interacting with the goats, pigs, ducks and chickens! Ask Frank to take you on an evening goat walk. We will go back!
Thank you for your great review. I really enjoyed your family and look forward to another goat walk with you. All the best... Frank
