YOU SPEND THE DAY SCRAWLING STRATEGY on floor-to-ceiling whiteboards and drafting plans for moving the corporation forward. Instead of traditional office suites, however, you’re enjoying this productive workday at Open Meadows, a large rental property brokered by Abode Luxury Rentals. It offers long, partially shaded decks, an up-to-date office, professionally equipped kitchens and formal dining rooms—all in a master-crafted home. As the last of the day’s sun bathes the Tetons in alpenglow, you and your colleagues relax in the hot tub or sit by the re, sharing an aged single malt.

Perhaps instead you’re in search of the perfect wedding locale where everyone can stay in one location. Located in Wilson, Wyoming, Open Meadows provides the perfect setting for a corporate retreat, wedding or vacation. Visitors have access to three buildings: the master home, a guest cottage and
a retrofitted barn. There are also basketball and tennis courts for pick- up games and a private pond stocked with Snake River cutthroat trout that can be coaxed with the right y. You can paddleboard on the pond, too.

“Unlike other rental property brokers, we do not dabble in real estate,” Rachel and Rob Alday say. The Aldays and their team focus on transparency and honesty with their homeowners and renters, without the distraction of running another business.

One aspect particularly important to the Aldays and their clients is cleanliness. Rachel says, “We’re crazy about cleaning. It’s very important for homeowners to know we’re stewarding their property, and for renters to walk into a spotless home when they arrive.” Indeed, cleaning crews triple-check everything before they leave a home.

Just as in fine hotels, Abode also offers concierge services at its 17 Jackson Hole properties, from arranging spa treatments to apre?s- ski bar and hors d’oeuvres services. Renters will find locally brewed beers in the fridge and fine wines on the kitchen counter when they arrive. Abode also provides ski and snowboard delivery and arranges floats and fly-fishing expeditions on the Snake.

The great room will accommodate your family, wedding party or board of directors for a musical interlude or the chance to gaze on passing wildlife.

For the Jackson Hole visitor seeking private lodging for a retreat, wedding or vacation and five-star service, there is no reason to look beyond Abode.
