PREMIERE LODGE ON THE SOUTHFORK OF THE PRISTINE SNAKE RIVER

Swan Valley House Rental Photos and Description

House, 5 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 4 Baths, (Sleeps 8-10)

This Lodge was built by Master craftsman Jay Thornley. It was built from the wood of an 100 year old factory. This lumber was sent to a mill and refinished to create this one of a kind property. It is a magical place built to the highest standards.It boasts 3000 sq.feet of indoor living with a 1000sq ft deck. There is a covered porch and balcony off the Master bedroom. Huge great room ,wonderful kitchen with porcelain farm sink , copper fixtures , saltillo tile floor,thermador range. Custom built bar with vintage saddle stools.You'll marvel over the 9' wood plank floors in the great room and all the bedrooms. All the woodwork has the patina of a lodge from the era of the famed Adirondack Lodges.That coupled with all the modern day comforts you would expect. It has 3 beautiful rock fireplaces ( wood burning )to create just the right ambiance.

But most importantly this lodge sits on the Snake River.With 800 feet of river frontage on 12 beautiful acres.It is just over the Teton Pass from Jackson Hole. All rooms view the river and the Majestic MT. Baldy. It is one of the most precious fisheries in the world. Home to the native cutthroat, lunker german browns , and acrobatic rainbows. If you are a fly fisherman this is truly nirvana. Launch a boat from our gently slopping banks or have a river guide pick you up right outside. Any number of world class guides from the area can assist you on a fishing trip. Of course this area is also home of the famed South Fork Lodge ( owned by Mark Rockefeller). And if fishing is not your thing than maybe being able to almost reach up and touch the stars of our Milky way galaxy might be the stimulation you desire. Whatever it is you will remember this place

I am avid fly fisherman with a young family. We have enjoyed many special times with extended family at the Lodge. Where bonding and memories were experienced that will never be forgotten

The Owner purchased this house in 2000

I had this custom lodge built in 2000. I bought the property in 1990 back when larger parcels were still available on the Snake in Swan Valley. So it is one of the few larger sites on the River

I love the 3 wood burning fireplaces....nothing creates the warmth of crackling fires. The 6 foot tub in the Master Bedroom and french doors that open to the private deck that overlooks the River and Valley has been the setting for many wildlife sightings

LOVELY LODGE. GREAT LOCATION

  • 5 of 5
I visited in the late fall with my wife and another couple. This lodge was a perfect home base to explore eastern Idaho and western Wyoming. Very convenient to airports in Idaho Falls and Jackson. The house is spacious and comfortable. The views off the back deck were spectacular. We especially enjoyed the eagles, osprey and other wildlife on the Snake River. This lodge is perfect for people who love nature and natural beauty.

PERFECT LOCATION FOR FISHING/SIGHTSEEING SNAKE RIVER-HENRY'S FORK-TETONS-YELLOWSTONE-JACKSON HOLE

Perfect location for fishing/sightseeing Snake River-Henry's Fork-Tetons-Yellowstone-Jackson Hole
  • 5 of 5
I chose this lodge because of its central location for fishing and sightseeing eastern Idaho's many rivers and Wyoming's Tetons, Jackson Hole and Yellowstone Park. All these areas can be leisurely accessed on one-day excursions from the Lodge. Most of my time was spent float-fishing three separate segments of the Snake River in Idaho and also south of Jackson in Wyoming. All-in-all my invited guests, youngest son, and I floated the Snake River seven times over a three week stay at the Lodge. My son also wade-fished the Teton and Fall Rivers. Fishing was great! Besides fishing we made several sightseeing forays to Yellowstone, the Tetons and Jackson Hole. Each day we began with breakfast at the Lodge and ended the day with a family-style dinner at the Lodge - the kitchen facilities are excellent and dining on the back deck is wonderful with a view of the river and surrounding mountains. The property description was accurate, it was clean and well maintained, the owner answered my email questions, and I would certainly recommend this property to friends and relatives.

What an amazing Lodge and property....our family did not want to leave.... Owner was very helpful in directing us in our trip planning....snake river float trip with guide Ed Emory ( who owner suggested) was spectacular. Visits to Jackson Hole and Yellowstone fun our kids were amazed by the whole experience...accommodations were incredible. Master suite was huge(the huge walk in shower and separate clawfoot tub were perfect after the days activities . Barbecue on the huge deck was a daily treat....sipping wine watching the locals ( ospreys,bald, and golden eagles) fish was also a treat. Checking out local hang outs ...we will definitely be back .

CAN'T MISS!!!

To echo the other reviews... simply awesome. Had a fantastic week 4 adults, 6 kids under age 10. Ate on deck every night, marshmallows by the river. Went hiking down Grand Targhee, a day in Jackson rafting, Yellowstone, Tetons. Took Marc's advice on shopped Dot-E-Dot antique shop hard (lucky we have a big van) and spent two days just upriver swimming/fishing in Palisades Reservoir (first caught cutthroat, then went swimming at Little Elk- had entire place to ourselves!). River was too high to float ourselves (Bill at the rental place really looked out for us), but we did get some great float fishing with the guides at Southfork Outfitters. Key move was buying supplies in Idaho Falls, then just enjoying our week. Marc was fantastic every step of the way.

RELAXATION AT ITS FINEST

  • 5 of 5
Calling this home a "retreat" does not do it justice. Our party consisted of four adults and we stayed for a week in early August 2011. Coming from hot, humid Iowa, I was immediately struck by how comfortable it was outside, regardless of the time of day. The huge deck overlooking the river draws you right outside and we spent much of our time on the deck or sitting in the shade by the river. The afternoon breeze made even the hottest days comfortable enough to lounge on the deck. There's a gas grill, as well as a charcoal grill, and we used these almost every night. My husband fished every morning and evening, and hauled in some nice trout. There's a closet full of DVDs to watch but we actually never used them because it was so nice outside, we spent most our time outdoors. The photos don't do this place justice. It's a beautiful home and has the feel of the old west without sacrificing comfort or convenience. If you are looking for a place to relax, fish, and just enjoy nature, this place offers exactly what you are looking for. We were definitely not ready to leave at the end of the week. If fly fishing is in your plans, there are several outfitters that will set you up with whatever you need, including a guide and drift boat. If you come through Victor on your way to Swan Valley, definitely stop at the Victor Market for wonderful sandwiches and a decent selection of groceries. The gravel road is a little exciting the first time but we quickly got used to it. Best of all, we saw a bull moose browsing on willows several different times while coming and going up near the main highway. Keep an eye out while driving and pay particular attention along the river banks, especially where the willow-covered islands are, as there's a decent chance of seeing him there. This was definitely one of the highlights of our trip.
