The deck and access to the Snake River sold it for us.
What makes this house unique
Being so close to the Snake River is fantastic. It's easy to kill a couple of days just hiking around the property and going down to the river. There is a bald eagle that lives on the opposite side of the river who you can oftentimes see hunting!
Guestbook comments from the owner
Snake river rental was lovely. We had a lovely visit.
Thanks you for making our stay really special. I hope we left it as you like.
I was a guest of this house last fall and was blown away by Jackson Hole in the fall. Myself and 3 other couple stayed here. The colors of the trees were incredible along the entire river area. Every morning I would walk down to the Snake River and get my line wet. I even reeled in few cuttys and rainbow trout. I felt like i could walk along the property for an hour before i reached the next house. It was my own private fishing paradise. Also I hired a guide and floated other sections of the Snake as well as a couple trips to the Grey´s and Hoback River. All were within a half hour of the property. The house was immaculate and I would recommend this place especially for those who like to be near Jackson but without all the madness the center of a tourist driven town. I hope to go back in the future to hunt in the fall as its located in the heart of the elk migration.
I was surprised at how reasonable the price was after seeing the hotel rates in town, not to mention the kitchen was perfect for meals for the 7 of us.

This was my first time visiting Jackson Hole, WY, and we could not have picked a better place! The house was extremely comfortable, clean, and spacious. We weren't right in the downtown "touristy" area, yet a short distance away...which was great because we really got to enjoy the peace and tranquility of our surroundings. We did venture to the many restaurants and nightlight downtown, yet ended each night circled around the fire-pit out in the backyard. Overall, I would without a doubt visit Jackson Hole again and if it's available, definitely picking Joseph's house!
Thank you, Joseph! We thoroughly enjoyed our vacation!
We had the pleasure of staying at the Snake River Retreat. A modest and functional home with just about all you would need to have a nice base of operations to explore the Jackson Hole / Teton area.
We stayed with a party of nine, and that worked out just fine. The nights were cool, so opening a window allowed for a comfortable sleep.
The grocery store was just a mile south of the house, and had everything we needed. The location was far enough out of Jackson to avoid the traffic, but close enough that a day trip to the Jackson / Teton area was convenient.
The back deck provided a relaxing space to enjoy the river and converse with friends. There was ample parking for the two vehicles, and the on site washer / dryer came in handy.
I liked the homey feel of the place, which worked fine for our group.
All in all, a great place!

Owner's Response: Thanks for writing such a helpful response. We love guests who understand the best part of Wyoming is getting out and taking in the beauty. Our home is a great landing pad after a day exploring the hot springs, mountain lakes and stunning wildlife. I personally like hanging out on the back patio, taking in the river and listening to the sounds of the numerous species of birds on the property. I suggest going white water rafting at least once. It's easy to schedule once you're in town. There is a koa campground a few hundred meters away from our home that runs buses to the rapids. It's a scenic 15-20 minute trip and this way you don't have to run into town just to come back out.
We had a great time in Jackson. The house is in an excellent location outside of the busy town, and still close to everything you want to see (though on the main road). The house was clean and is well maintained on the inside, except that back door slider needs fixing, and the master bathroom tub doesn't drain. There's plenty of room for 8 people to be comfortable. The house does overlook the river, but it's a hike down/up a steep incline. We sat outside every morning and enjoyed the view, and the ospreys and eagles flying the river valley looking for fish. This was our first VRBO.com rental, and overall it was a good experience and good place to stay. We went white water kayaking (rendezvous sports), white water rafting (JHWhitewater), and 2 fishing float trips with Snake River Anglers. I would recommend all of them.

Owner's Response: The master bathroom drain was fixed in mid August. We weren't aware of this problem and had no way of knowing this was a problem. Hair clogs drains and if we do know about these issues we will get our caretaker to address them. In my last trip we also cut down a significant amount of the foliage around the back deck so now the view of the river is better than ever. The back door has been fixed and the sliding door has been replaced.
Pros: lots of space and clean Cons: although clean, the place needs updating. Screens have holes in them to the point where squirrels were climbing in through kitchen window and pulling food off counter! Sliding patio door was a pain in the butt to open and close..screen came off track every time we used. The bedrooms where comfortable but the master bath tub would not drain. The furniture in the living room was horrible to sit on, but luckily we spent most of our time outside. The path to the river is very HARD for anyone over the age of 50 or anyone out of shape to traverse. It is very steep. House is very close to busy road so there was a lot of road noise.
Overall thought was a bit pricey for what we got.

Owner's Response: We recently replaced the sliding screen door and replaced all the parts so that the glass sliding door is easy to use. The path down to the river is not that difficult to walk down, but we can see how some people think it is. I was out there in mid August and my father who is 74 walked down a number of times only wearing flip flops. My dad is tough so this might not be the norm, but everyone in my family except for my 71 year old mother who recently had knee surgery had no problems. I always recommend a walking stick for those people who are not used to the back country environment.
We enjoyed our stay at the Snake River Retreat, and i will describe some Pros & Cons Cons: Outside of the property, not maintained at all, and it was dirty. One of the tables is all run down, not appealing at all. No A/C. It was hot during the day, and with no A/C it was a little uncomfortable. There are some small fans in the property, which we had to use even at night. The furniture is definitely dated, and only 1 TV for the entire house, making it difficult if you have kids who want to watch cartoons all the time. In spite that there was a sign to go down to the river, it was impossible, my grown kids, and grand kids tried but it was too steep. I didn't even try as I didn't want to fall. 20 minutes from Jackson and almost an hour to get to the Grand Teton entrance. Pros: The property is very relaxing being right by the river. We sat outside every day, and across the river we could see deer, and one day we saw 2 moose. We enjoyed this very much. Kitchen is well equipped. For a large family the house is ideal in spite that there is no luxury and is plain, but for the time you spend inside the house, it is not such a big issue. It has a washer and dryer which is very convenient. The only problem we encountered, was the sliding door was not working properly which the owner let us know but since it was the 4th of July week, we never got it fixed, and were struggling with it. Other than that we enjoyed our stay away from home.

Owner's Response: I think I addressed most of the responses in terms of the path down to the river and the sliding door in my previous responses. We will be replacing one of the tables on the back deck for 2013 but the other table is in excellent condition and the chairs are in great shape. The one thing that I find strange about this review is the no air conditioning. I was out there in mid august about 6 weeks after these people and jackson had a heat wave.
That means that is was 40 degrees at 8AM. 80 Degrees at noon and 95 from about 3 to 6PM. The house is made of cinder block and retains the cool air from the night before incredibly well. Even at the hight of the hottest part of the day as long as the shades were drawn the home stayed in the mid 70's. Now if you opened up all the drapes especially in the grand room I can see how the hot sun would warm up the house. I slept every night without cracking a window with a full down comforter. It's unusual to have ac in a place in Wyoming when the nights are consistently below 50 degrees. There is plenty of ventilation in the house and the ceiling fan keeps the air circulated.
