Destination guide

Hikers, give it some welly in Wyoming's Kelly

A 20-minute drive from Jackson, within the boundaries of the Grand Teton National Park, Kelly is a small western town with a big heart. Get your Wyoming adventure rocking by booking a Kelly vacation rental. Surrounded by the peaks of the Grand Tetons, Kelly is the ideal spot for outdoors enthusiasts and nature lovers. Skim stones on Slide Lake, wake up nose to nose with a friendly (ish) bison, and meet the hairy-chinned elks at the National Elk Refuge next door. After dark, cozy down in your remote Kelly lodge under a shimmering blanket of stars.

Things to do

Forget roller coasters, welcome to nature's theme park

Wyoming is often called the first state in outdoor America. When there's this much nature on your doorstep, who needs theme parks and roller coasters? Well, tell that to the kids! There's plenty of natural attractions within easy reach from your Kelly vacation rental. It's a mere pebble's skim from Slide Lake, a beautiful glassy lake formed in 1925, when 50 million tons of rock slid down Sheep Mountain. While there is no actual slide into Slide Lake, it offers excellent fishing and hiking opportunities.


Go wild for wildlife in Wyoming's high country

thanks to its lush pine forests and craggy alpine terrain, the Teton Range is a prime destination for hikers. Book a Kelly vacation rental and have more than 200 miles of hiking trails at your feet. Visit Snake River, which runs right through the national park, where you can fish or kayak down the rapids. Or take a scenic drive through the mountains and spot bison, elks, or rare pronghorn antelopes, the fastest land animal in North America, grazing by the rivers. Twitchers can see ospreys, bald eagles and American white pelicans gliding above.


Winter in Wyoming is wonderful

Wyoming's temperatures vary from season to season, ranging from warm, sunshine-filled summers to knee-deep snow in the depths of winter. While each extreme is popular with visitors, the shoulder seasons of spring and fall, can often be the most pleasant times to visit; the park's fall colors can be spectacularly beautiful. Winter is high season in the nearby ski resorts of Jackson Hole, while summer attracts the king's ransom of visitors to the Grand Teton National Park. For the best choice of Kelly vacation rentals, book as early in the season as so not to disappoint.

Natural features

The views in Kelly turn legs to jelly

Nestled under the steely gaze of the Grand Teton mountain range in northwest Wyoming, the small western town of Kelly is blessed with 360-degree national park views. Bordering the Gros Ventre Wilderness to the south and Yellowstone National Park to the north, it's truly Wyoming in its prime. While the Teton's craggy alpine peaks attract serious mountaineers and rock climbers, there are plenty of accessible hiking trails closer to sea level. It's home to a variety of wildlife, including mountain lions, elk and rugged American bison, which roam the Wyoming plains like hairy quarterbacks.
