As the first in a collection of boutique eco-lodging launched by MetWest Terra Hospitality, the LEED-certified Hotel Terra Jackson Hole offsets 100 percent of its electric and natural gas usage by purchasing alternative clean energy. Computerized systems shut down power in rooms when they're not in use, native landscaping means there's no need for wasteful irrigation, and beds are completely organic (including their salt-water based flame retardant). Featuring Chill Spa, Il Villaggio Osteria and accommodations so mountain lodge chic you'll never want to leave, this gorgeous Grand Teton getaway is an excellent example of creative responsibility — even its elevator tiles are made out of leather from tannery scraps and the bathroom countertops are crafted from reclaimed glass.
