The Brooks Lake Lodge and Spa in Wyoming's Rocky Mountains


Located in the Rocky Mountains near Yellowstone and Grand Teton National Parks one mile from the Continental Divide and within a short drive of Jackson Hole, Wyoming, Brooks Lake Lodge and Spa awaits. Their style? Where Luxury, Adventure and Classy Rustic meet.

Below, a 35 foot river rock fireplace is flanked by huge picture windows framing magnificent views of Shoshone National Forest. It’s all about tranquility here in this peaceful gathering room, which is where guests can read, relax or meditate.

When you visit Brooks Lake Lodge and Spa you are following in the footsteps of generations of adventure seekers. In other words, they tout a whole lotta history. The Lodge, which is listed on the National Park Services Register of Historic Places, was built in 1922. Known at the time as the Two-Gwo-Tee Inn, the Lodge first served as a stopover for vacationers headed to Yellowstone National Park.

Soon thereafter, the Two-Gwo-Tee Inn was converted into a dude ranch, renamed The Diamond G Ranch, and became a vacation destination in its own right–serving well-to-do Easterners in search of a Western-style vacation. They obviously attract a lot of California residents as well since its such a short flight and would make a great escape for Europeans and others interested in experiencing America’s rustic western landscape.

The main lodge was constructed in a record four months time in the Western Craftsman architectural style that developed in the Rocky Mountain Region during the early 1900s. Through multiple renovations and additions this architecture has been carefully preserved–more recently during the building of their spa which emulates the main lodge.

The Lodge sits 9,200 feet above sea level. It is one mile from the Continental Divide and surrounded by mountain peaks including the Pinnacle Buttes, Austin’s Peak, and Brooks Mountain. This natural beauty is what surrounds you in a very intimate setting – they only have a handful of lodge rooms and private cabins.  They also have a rustic cowboy bar on the premises where you can hang out after a long day of skiing (if winter) or hiking in the summer and the Governor’s Tea Room for a cozier ambiance.

The rooms are also rustic in design, but most certainly not basic.

There’s also a fitness center and spa, where you can get typical spa services such as facials and massages, including hot stone massage treatments, which are not commonly found. Even though its in the mountains, they offer lush white robes, and there’s a sauna and hot tub for the taking. Afterwards, you’ll want to curl up with a cup of tea or a glass of wine and a good book by the tranquility room’s fireplace. It won’t be long before you’ve forgotten the rest of the world even exists.

Imagine a hot tub with a view like this? Brooks Lake is no ordinary place.
