Read all about it

The AMK Ranch, on the eastern shore of Jackson Lake, was built in two phases, one during the 1920s by William Louis Johnson, and the second in 1936-37 by Alfred Berol (Berolzheimer). The Ranch is significant because it exemplifies a portion of Rustic architecture at Grand Teton National Park, namely the rustic architecture of twentieth century vacation homes. During Johnson's ownership of the property a small lodge, barn/garage, and boathouse were designed and built in 1927 of log to capture the western atmosphere and the feeling of the natural pine forest surroundings. After Berol acquired the property he added a number of cabins, a new boathouse, and the main lodge.
