You need to use the lodge snow coach or bring your own snow mobile to access this property in the winter. No problem, once you arrive everything, EVERYTHING is provided. In the middle of the Shoshone National Forest the mountain views are breath taking, along with great access for cross country skiing, snow shoeing, and snowmobiling. The outdoor spa allows you to feel toasty while snowflakes brush your cheeks. The attached warming building allows you to comfortably change out of your swim suit, enjoy a dry sauna, sit back in a comfortable chair, read, have a cup of hot tea. Fluffy cotton robes and pool shoes provided.

Our suite had its own natural stone fireplace, library, kitchen, dining room, hot tub, bedroom...a spectacular view of the mountains and the frozen lake. A fabulous home away from home.

The food provided was first rate. Usually two choices of mains for dinner all provided fresh to order. One evening we had grits for the accompanying starch...grits delicious like I never had before. Upon questioning the cook these were a heirloom variety she brought with her from her mother's garden! Wow.

Safety during Covid - 19 was everywhere. Staff members were masked up and worked to keep surfaces clean. For extra security we had our meals in our room...no problem. Every reasonable request was responded to as "no problem." Stay in paradise be treated like royalty. A special shoutout to the manager, Matthew Tousignat who was present 24/7 to assist his guests and his staff.

Brooks Lake Lodge (BLL) is a Winter Wonderland outside Jackson Hole/Yellowstone WY. After lots of research this was our pick for our winter honeymoon destination (5 nights 4 days - March 2020) and it was the BEST decision. We had the time of our lives. Absolutely LOVED our time here. 5+****

First and foremost the staff here is AMAZING! It was like visiting family. Everyone is down to earth and super super friendly. From housekeeping, Natasha our server (Ice Fishing Queen), our guide Max, the departing GM Adam, the new GM Matthew and everyone else, we can’t say enough about how well they all took care of us. They went above and beyond to give us the best experience possible.

Snow taxi to Lodge:

First our driver greeted us at parking lot just off the main road, loaded our bags and we were off to the historic BLL. It’s about a 5-mile ride from the main road and you literally feel the stress and worries leaving you mile by mile as you enjoy the serene beauty that is all around you.

Lodge:

Once we arrived at the lodge tucked away between the snowy capped mountains of Pinnacle Buttes, Brooks Mountain and Richard’s Peak, we were welcomed by Matthew the new GM. Received a tour of the lodge while they delivered our bags to our cabin. The views from the lodge (and cabins) are stunning! I can’t put into words the granger of it all. The fireplaces in the lodge are just magnificent. We loved sitting by them enjoying morning coffee, afternoon tea with fresh baked cookies and before & after dinner. The lodge is the main gathering spot, best place to receive WiFi (if you even want to connect to the outside world) and a place where guests visit with one another and exchange stories about their days adventures.

Cabin:

We stayed in the Prospector. Historic rustic, warm, cozy but very roomy one bedroom, one bath cabin with oh so comfy king bed, living room with couch, 2 chairs and a log burning stove. There was wood delivered daily so we never ran out and we used A LOT! Loved our early mornings watching the sunrise with a fire going, drinking coffee looking out at the Pinnacle Buttes was the best way to start our day. Housekeeping was very attentive to our requests and the cabin was always clean.

Experience:

There is so much to do. You would be amazed at how much FUN you can have when its cold and snowy outside. We spent our days relaxing in the cabin and lodge, snowmobiling (2 days), mornings of ice fishing, snow tubing down a hill (a BLAST), enjoyed the outside hot tub looking out at the spectacular winter wonderland and had an awesome massage at the onsite spa.

Snowmobiling:

This was the absolute highlight of our trip. Everything was amazing but snowmobiling in the backcountry is just plain EPIC. Such an amazing experience, one we will never forget. My husband has some snowmobiling experience and I had none. But I can tell you with the help of our guide Max, explaining everything and helping me ease into it I was able to keep up with them. Max was so good to us. He took us way out in the back trails, the views were incredible, husband got to do some off trail riding through tons of powder (a snowmobilers dream) saw herds of Elk and some moose. On our second day of snowmobiling Chef Whitney packed our lunch so we could be out all day and we ate in the backcountry looking out at the Grand Tetons. Not a soul around just peace and quiet with a picturesque back drop. Side Note: The snowmobile gear they provide is top notch and super warm.

One day we hope to be the level of Skinner Bell one of BLL guides (LOL I’m Dreaming) If you don’t know who he is, he is a BEAST on a snowmobile. If you are an extremist, or just love to ride in powder Skinner is your man. He will give you the experience of your life. Snowmobilers come from near and far to snowmobile with Skinner. While we were there they had a group in from Iceland - YES Iceland. They come annually to experience EXTREME snowmobiling in the backcountry. The stories we overhead at dinner were jaw dropping. To say the least, they had a BLAST!

Food:

The food was 5-star all the way. Breakfast was different every morning with variety of options, ie. fresh fruit, muffins, yogurt, granola (yummy good) breads, pastries, eggs to order, waffles, bacon, potatoes, etc. Lunches were BIG and HEARTY. Choices from appetizers (note: the appetizers are a meal in itself) soups & salads, entrees and desserts to die for. Dinner we dined on Elk tenderloin, Duck, Chilean Sea Bass, Idaho Trout, Buffalo Sirloin, Salmon and more. We were never hungry.

Suggestion:

BLL is at 9,200’ elevation. We live in San Diego which is only at 62’ elevation. If you have never been at high elevation, prepare for altitude sickness. Not everyone has issues but if you do it WILL ruin your trip. We prepared ourselves by hydrating (drinking lots of extra water, some with Nuun tablets) one week prior to our arrival. We also stayed at The Wort Hotel in Jackson which is at 6,237’ elevation the night before to give our bodies a little time to acclimate. As an extra precaution we both received a prescription for medication that was only needed to take for 4 days. (2 days prior and 2 days while there). We had no issue with the elevation.

Overall:

We had an awesome Honeymoon! It was worth every penny. We didn’t want to leave but we left feeling like we now have a bunch of new friends. Thank you Brooks Lake Lodge! ALL of you created a wonderful memory for my husband and I. We will be back, hopefully for a longer stay next time!

We just got back from our second visit to Brooks Lake Lodge. Our first visit was 3 years ago, and we loved it so much we decided to come back this year. This summer's visit was particularly good for the soul, since this place is the perfect escape from politics and pandemics. We traveled with our two girls (ages 15 and 16) and another family with a boy and a girl, 16 and 12. For our first night we were the only 2 families at the ranch, and it was so nice to be able to be in a place away from home where we could walk around without fear of catching COVID. The staff there are very attentive but also respectful of allowing your family to have a relaxing vacation. For each full day you are on site you have the option to choose a morning and afternoon activity (fishing, hiking, horseback riding, or archery). At any time during your stay you can also enjoy the spa (including the outdoor hot tub with an amazing view), take a canoe on the lake, or fish in the small pond by the horses. We stayed in a family cabin which has two bedrooms and a loft (5 beds), so with a family of 4 we had plenty of room to spare. But we spent a lot of time down at the main lodge playing foosball, shuffleboard, chess and board games (and the adults enjoyed beers and huckleberry margaritas). What sets Brooks Lake Lodge apart from other lodges, though, is the amazing food. The all-inclusive nature of the place makes the gourmet food even more enjoyable, since you don't have to worry about prices or tipping while you are there. The new manager this summer seems to be bringing some fresh spirit to the place, and the new assistant manager (who was previously the head chef) helps maintain the great traditions with her experience. A quick note about face masks/COVID precautions: the staff was willing to wear masks but we discussed it with them upon arrival and due to the very small number of guests and staff on site with us (and low numbers of infections in the local area) we all opted to not wear masks. There is ample space for everyone to stay at a safe distance in the main lodge and restaurant.

WOW! We didn't expect this level of dining at all. We were on a Togwotee Powder snowmobile tour with Scenic Safaris and stopped here for lunch. We were greeted like old friends and brought into the dining room where there was a nice fire blazing. Our server was prompt and professional with perfect timing to ensure our drinks were filled and our meal was perfectly paced-including dessert. The food was outstanding. Very tasty with large portions-just what we needed to make our day even more perfect (yes, it is possible). I got a pumpkin creme brulee for dessert and it was world class. What a great place filled with great food and great people. You should go.

The location is as good as it gets; not sure there’s a more gorgeous spot in the country with a hotel, other than the dreadful Centerra-run lodges in the Parks. The snowmobile trails are superlative and the rentals fairly priced. The food is generous and tastes homemade; the rooms clean and comfortable. It’s a warm, unique and extraordinary place.

A few nits: the bathrooms are due for a refresh and could be cleaner (they stick out as grungy compared to the rest of the hotel, which is spotless). The WiFi is super fast (remarkably so given how isolated the hotel is!) but there are significant gaps in coverage, even in the main lodge: the main dining room and some guest rooms don’t have usable WiFi, which was problematic for us.

But big picture, if you love the west, this hotel should be on your bucket list.
