Heather's favorite room, the library, features a tiled fireplace and cherry bookcases that line the walls. Oak floors with Oriental rugs warm up the room. Guests can enjoy high tea and cocktails, or check their e-mail with included Internet access. Although Heather says, "We really hope our guests can lose themselves in the mountain beauty and dozens of available activities, and pack away their laptops for awhile."
Rancho Alegre guests enjoy private suites, each with its own personality, décor, and breathtaking views. Make your guests feel comfortable with our Bed & Bath Essentials--including bedroom furnishings, bathroom accessories, and home spa essentials.
When it comes time for guests to gather at the end of the day, the Grand Room beckons. "This is where guests hang out, where casual corduroy sofas let them sink in comfortably," says Heather. Here, guests can watch TV, movies, play chess, or challenge friends at the billiards table. The Grand Room, which opens up to the back deck for alfresco enjoyment, is adjacent to the formal Living Room and Dining Room. Here, guests enjoy elegant candlelit dinners. All three rooms encompass a 3,000-square-foot space with French doors that lead to a spacious deck with a gorgeous view of the Teton Range.
Downstairs, a spa area with the latest exercise equipment, a sauna, steam room, space for yoga and massage, plus an outdoor hot tub, is dedicated to health and wellness. A staff concierge is available to arrange for a personal massage therapist, personal trainer, or yoga instructor to work with guests whenever they desire.
"Some guests come to Rancho Alegre for the coziness of the lodge, the gourmet meals, and the wonderful amenities. We have one lovely elderly couple who arrive every year for a week and stay inside the whole time. But most guests take advantage of the outdoor activities," says Frank. "We'll dedicate time to understand what excites them so that we can customize an itinerary to achieve the ultimate Rocky Mountain getaway for each guest. In our years of operation, we have established relationships with the best vendors in the valley so that we can offer the best services to our clients."
The choices are many; Jackson Hole is a natural playground. In spring, summer, and fall, there's rafting, fly fishing, hiking, biking, kayaking, rock climbing, tennis, and horseback riding. In winter, skiing, tubing, sledding, snowmobiling, and dog sledding are all close by. "Whatever our guests want to do, we will arrange it," says Frank. "We are prepared to be personal chef, concierge, butler—anything a guest would like is possible at Rancho Alegre."
Rancho Alegre includes such Frontgate items as solar pathlights to illuminate outdoor walkways, and high-quality coco door mats to ruggedly welcome in visitors. Find both of these fixtures in our expansive Outdoor Living collection.
There's No Place Like Home
Rancho Alegre is truly a ranch. Animals roam the grounds freely. Ranch manager, Jeremy Horn, says the grounds are like a family-friendly petting zoo. "Guests always tell us Rancho Alegre has an incredible family feeling to it, not like a hotel at all. That's the way we want it to be," he says. His wife, Jennifer, is the ranch caretaker and gardener; together they maintain Rancho Alegre's memorable ambience. The management and operation of the ranch is a Reilly family affair, with Frank's father also playing an integral part to ensure that the Lodge provides excellent service to every guest.
Offering high-caliber service is something the Reillys have in common with Frontgate. Both Frank and Heather have modeled for the Frontgate catalog. "We are Frontgate fans. It's always a pleasure to deal with Frontgate as a customer," says Heather. Frank adds, "Their service is consistently first-rate. Because we don't have many stores out in the Jackson Hole area, we rely on Frontgate for what we need around the lodge and in the garden." Along the meandering driveway to Rancho Alegre, a series of solar pathlights from Frontgate leads the way after dark. Frank and Heather chose Frontgate coco mats to welcome guests to the lodge, and their quality has endured even through long Wyoming winters with guests in snowy boots coming and going.
Heather and Frank spent most months of the year at Rancho Alegre until 2001, when their two young sons became school age. They then moved to Miami, Fl. "Being at Rancho Alegre is still dear to all of us, and the boys ask about the animals all the time. It's a little piece of heaven and a place where we strive to give our guests a blissfully relaxing, unhurried experience away from the stresses of the modern world, close to the natural beauty of the West," says Heather.
At Frontgate, that is our wish for our customers. Peace, serenity, and starry nights with the ones you love to surround you. Merry Christmas from everyone at Frontgate, and from the Rancho Alegre Lodge in Jackson Hole, Wy.
