JACKSON, Wyo. — A “re-imagined” Virginian Lodge will open in January 2022, as new owners have renovated and brought back to life many of its beloved and classic features.
In its return, The Virginian will have 165 new rooms situated around a recently added central pool and a large courtyard. Also promised is the return of Billy’s Burgers and Ginny’s Bottle Shop.
Once a Jackson classic, Billy’s Burgers will be reborn in a new space that honors the original location alongside the Saloon outfitted in leather banquettes with mountain décor, all centered around a roaring stone fireplace.
Ginny’s Bottle Shop, the hotel’s onsite store, will service the drive-through window and curate craft cocktail kits, signature sloshies and a unique selection of wines and beers.
Additionally, the Virginian Lodge’s 13-acre downtown property will feature an all-new event space called Wister Hall, in addition to a ten-person board room.
Hospitality veteran and longtime Jackson resident, Stacey King Brogan, has assumed the general manager role.
Brogan previously held general manager posts at Rustic Inn Jackson Hole Creekside Resort & Spa as well as The Lodge at Jackson Hole. She will oversee all management of the hotel’s day-to-day operations and will play an integral role in bringing the vision for the new Virginian Lodge to life.
“The Virginian Lodge is a dream project to lead. Thoughtfully restoring and modernizing this legend of a property is an honor and a whole lot of fun,” said General Manager Stacey King Brogan. “The Virg’ is a remarkably special place that embodies the adventurous spirit, sense of community, and laid-back hospitality for which Jackson is known. We can’t wait to share The Virginian’s renewed sense of warm nostalgia and contemporary comfort with our guests in January.”
