For the first time in 26 years the United States will enjoy what is being called the “Great American Eclipse” and Jackson Hole has been called out as “the place” to see the eclipse this summer. If you haven’t heard already, the moon will completely block the sun during this event turning daylight into a deep twilight. If you want to position yourself in one of the most beautiful natural settings to witness this natural phenomena than the southern border of Grand Teton National Park is, arguably, one of the best places in the country to be.
Jackson Hole typically has great weather that time of year for positive viewing. And why not just make a vacation out of it as there are numerous things to do here in August from fishing the Snake River to hiking in Grand Teton National Park. Jackson Hole has much to offer. The town is reporting that all hotels are completely booked so, if you are considering planning a trip here for this once-in-a-lifetime event and need lodging, please give me a call.
I have a 9 bedroom, 8 bathroom lodge located 40 miles west of Rexburg, ID and about 90 minutes from Jackson (also within the totality line) available. It can sleep up to 18 people and sits on 2200 acres bordered by National Forest. This location will be one of the choicest in the area.

Looking to be in the path of totality and learn more about the eclipse from real astronomers? There are a few rooms available as of May 9th, 2017 at a Jackson Hole Wyoming resort on August 20 and 21. This location has all the views of the Grand Tetons, an impressive unobstructed sky view and a 360 degree view of the surroundings to make the eclipse an awesome experience for you. The Eclipse package includes an evening reception (Aug 20) with eclipse lecture by an astronomer followed by a celebration- with live band, dinner and dancing- the evening after the mid-day eclipse (Aug 21). The resort is located on the center of the line of Totality, no need to drive to a better spot and fight the crowds. Here’s your chance to experience a solar spectacle in a spectacular setting. The eclipse package is $1800/night for the two nights (Aug 20 & 21), double occupancy including all food, events, taxes and resort fees. Travel to and from the resort is not included. Please inquire.
