The Jackson Hole valley is a place synonymous with wild and free places, one of the last true frontiers of the West. Unique in landscape and diverse in its people, the valley offers mountain living unparalleled in quality and grandeur.
Historically, Jackson was a place where people came to experience a taste of the Western lifestyle. Many came to visit dude ranches, and often times an immediate connection was made, thus an early trend was set in finding a way to return to the magical valley.
It has been said that no one can come to Jackson just once. The enchantment and splendor of the Jackson Hole Valley have a unique way of calling to your spirit, beckoning your return. There is no greater place to come home to and owning a home in Jackson Hole is a dream come true for many.
Originally known as Jackson’s Hole, the valley name was coined by early fur trappers, who used the term ‘hole’ to describe the valleys surrounded by mountains. Davey Jackson was a well-known trapper of the day, and thus, the valley’s namesake.
Surrounded by federal lands, the private lands of Jackson are limited and thus, extremely valuable. Beyond the lifestyle allure of owning in Jackson, a purchase is a sound investment as there is a finite supply of land available.
While the name Jackson refers to the actual town limits of Jackson, the term Jackson Hole is more often used to describe the entire valley. The Jackson Hole valley contains three towns; Jackson, Wilson and Teton Village, and a unique mix of neighborhoods and developments that offer a remarkable variety of luxury property possibilities. Whether you are looking for an urban, resort or remote feel, you will find it in Jackson Hole.
