No development will ever harm the natural beauty around Flat Creek because this area has been protected since the 1980s, and will continue to be protected in the future. Once you reach Flat Creek Ranch, you won’t have any reason to leave!

This is the perfect place for your family to hike the mountains, fish a legendary trout stream, and return to your intimate, luxurious space for peace and quiet found only at an exquisite ranch like Flat Creek.
In 2001, Flat Creek was officially added to the National Register of Historic Places.
In 1981, Dick Cheney and his family are invited to Flat Creek Ranch, and Lynne Cheney is so fascinated by the ranch’s history that she publishes an article called “The Countess of Flat Creek.” While the rest of the family fished, Lynne wandered the ranch trying to understand how it came into being.

The Jackson Hole climate (and temperatures around the Teton Mountain Lodge) varies greatly form season to season. Though it can sometimes rise above 90 degrees in the summer, the valley also has a reputation for arctic cold in the winter, with a temperature that rarely climbs above 10 degrees. However, the curious phenomenon called the Inversion Effect can sometimes drive residents to higher elevations on the coldest days to get warm! Don’t believe us? People talk about this as a gift from God because when an inversion hits, cold air is held down near the valley floor by high pressure, so the high mountain regions will be 10, 20, or more degrees warmer!

Where I sat on my horse stretched a broad, peaceful valley. I stood closer that day to nature’s heart than ever before.”
