The apartment is a third-floor walkup in a mixed-use residential and office building, with two reserved (off-street) parking spots. There are two bedrooms (both brand new Queen beds) to sleep four people, sharing one recently updated bathroom. You can also rent the apartment next door (same layout) to sleep 8 people.

About Andy and Carolyn Ripps

Our family has lived in Jackson Hole since 2000 and love calling this special place home. Neither of us ever thought we'd stay here long term, so we always warn visitors that they might be caught by the Jackson-bug as well!

Andy and Carolyn Ripps purchased this apartment in 2007

Why Andy and Carolyn Ripps chose Jackson Hole area

I've lived in Jackson Hole since 2000 and we have owned this building since 2007, renting out the commercial spaces to my Mortgage Brokerage company, a Law Office, a Spa/Hair Salon, along with four residential units. The building is unique - there's nothing else like it downtown - and the location is unparalleled.

What makes this apartment unique

The apartment is in the lodging-overlay, so it is legally rentable to short-term guests (which is unusual in Jackson). The building has received approval from the Town, meeting current fire safety protocols, and is registered to accept short-term renters (which is also why we charge the lodging tax). License #6561-16.

Could be five stars with some easy fixes

  • 3 of 5

Two couples for four nights. Here are the pros and cons:

Pros:

Great Location

Easy Parking

Price

Cons:

There were only four towels in the unit. With hiking, fishing, etc. this was not enough for 4 people over five days.

The towels and sheets all smelled like they had been left in the washer for a couple of days. I can tolerate a little funk but these were next level. Everything had to be rewashed (but no washer/dryer in unit)

No extra pillows or bedding. The beds each had two small pillows.

Less than one roll of toilet paper in the unit. We had to go buy our own.

No paper towels. Again, had to go buy which isn't a big deal but should be unnecessary.

Minimal kitchen amenities.

"sitting" chairs in the living room are horribly uncomfortable and built for a DMV waiting room, not an apartment where people want to sit and relax.

Hallway and stairs need to be either cleaned or re-carpeted (this unit is up three flights). There are some interesting odors as you ascend to the unit.

EXTREMELY noisy neighbors. I suspect a neighboring unit has been rented by seasonal workers who threw parties every night that lasted until 3 am. I had a tough time sleeping even after lots of whiskey. Fortunately, on Saturday night the police showed up (not from us calling) and broke things up around 1 am.

Lastly, and I agree this is trivial, the temp control in the shower is backwards. I initially thought there was no hot water but there is...once you turn the knob to cold.

As you can see, other than the neighbors, these issues are all easily resolved and hopefully the owners take these comments into consideration and make some changes that will allow the next tenants to leave a 5 star review.

Owner's Response: Hi Joshua -- I am so sorry that you had such a bad experience in our apartment! I would have hoped that you would have contacted us immediately with any of these concerns -- we have lots of extra sheets, towels, pillows, etc that can all be exchanged out quickly. We also store extra toilet paper and paper towels in the hallway closet for guests to replenish and I'll make a note to make this more clear for our future guests. I really do appreciated all your the comments and will work towards fixing, as you mentioned most of them are easy and involve a conversation with our cleaning help (who are usually really terrific). Especially appreciate the tip about the noisy neighbors next door as we know those landlords and can work to have this resolved asap. All the best, Carolyn

Charming!

  • 4 of 5

We loved staying here! The location is perfect! You can walk to the town square! Instructions are clear and accurate, we had no problems finding or accessing the apartment! It was clean and nicely decorated! The kitchen was fully stocked with dishes, pots/pans, utensils and we made good use of it all! It's a comfortable home and the beds were comfy! The stairs are no joke in that high elevation, but we managed!

We only had two concerns/complaints: The last night we were there, around 1am, someone was trying to open the front door. We were 4 women and it freaked us out! Not sure what that was about. Also, we had to strip the beds on the last day and put all our linens and towels in the bathtub, which wasn't an issue. But when my cousins stripped their bed, there was a nasty blood stain on the mattress pad of their bed! They were disgusted to think they had been sleeping on that the whole time we were there!

Owner's Response: Oh no! I'm so sorry to hear about the gross-out stain. Yuck! I had no idea and spoke with our cleaning helpers to make sure that doesn't happen again. And I actually spoke with the folks who were staying next door and they were the ones that disrupted you late at night and were super apologetic (in retrospect). They were just arriving that night and said they were confused which apartment was theirs. So sorry for the scare!

Comfortable Apartment in a Great Location!

  • 5 of 5

My group of 4 stayed at Andy & Carolyn's apartment for a few days while visiting Jackson & the Grand Tetons. The apartment - on the 3rd floor of an office/apartment building - was in a great location to the downtown Jackson Hole area. We were able to walk wherever we need to go in Jackson Hole from their place. Additionally, the apartment was only a short drive from the Grand Tetons, making it very easy to get around during our trip. The apartment itself was very comfortable, clean & easily fulfilled our needs. Andy & Carolyn had great communication with us before and during our trip. We were happy to stay at their apartment & would recommend it!

Fabulous location with everything you need.

  • 5 of 5

I stayed here with my family at the end of a 9 day trip to Yellowstone and Grand Teton. After staying in the lodges we were ready to spread out a bit and have some town-life mixed in with all our hiking. This apartment really fit our needs-- it is much more spacious than it appears in the photos with plenty of room for a family of four and it had everything we needed from a well equipped kitchen to a comfortable communal room. Best of all, it has off-street parking and is right in the heart of town, an easy walk to coffee shops, restaurants, the children's museum etc. but also allows for a quick drive back to the Tetons. It was also spotlessly clean and nicely decorated. We all agreed that we would happily stay here again!
