Golden Spur Presented to Lindsay Schaefer of the Wort Hotel


The Jackson Hole Chamber of Commerce Membership Committee is pleased to announce that the Golden Spur was presented to Lindsay Schaefer of the Wort Hotel at Business Over Breakfast on Thursday, August 1.

Lindsay’s caring nature is well regarded by her colleagues and guests at the Wort Hotel. One story in particular inspired Christie Reinhardt to submit a nomination for the Golden Spur. A hotel guest was planning to meet with a business colleague in Old Faithful and was desperate to find a ride. Visiting form Asia, he expected that it would be easy to hop on a train or a bus. After diligently working but failing to find a ride that would accommodate the guest’s budget and schedule, Lindsay offered to drive the guest to Old Faithful…on her day off!

Christie wrote, “There are many many stories that I could share about Lindsay's caring nature. Just last week, we had a guest that caught a few lake trout and he wanted to freeze them and take them home. The health department frowns upon storing such an item in our kitchen, so Lindsay offered to take the trout home, freeze it for him, and bring it back in the morning on her own time.” She concluded, “Lindsay is a true ambassador of Jackson Hole and should be recognized as such.”

Lindsay will receive a prize package of gifts from supporters of exceptional customer service in Jackson Hole – The Blue Lion, Judge Roy Bean’s Old Time Photos, the Homewood Suites by Hilton or Lexington Inn & Suites, Jackson Bootlegger, and LOCAL. The Jackson Hole Chamber of Commerce thanks our sponsors.
