Guestbook comments from the owner
Your house was by far the nicest place we have stayed. We loved the beautiful view and gorgeous furnishings. The hot tub and stars were so relaxing after a long day's drive through Yellowstone. Happy 4th! Hope to come back in the future.

I grew up in Southern Utah, north of Zion National Park. My childhood was spent surrounded by beautiful landscape. Since my father was a cattle rancher, I had many opportunities to enjoy wide, open spaces. When I had a chance to buy a vacation home,I knew Driggs, Idaho, nestled near the Teton Mountains,was the place for me. The skies are bigger and the stars brighter. I like to spend time in places where people are friendly and hard working.This home in Teton Valley is truely western living at it's best !

Carolyn Leigh purchased this house in 2007

After an active day, you can relax on the porch or decks in a rocking chair looking at the gorgeous view of the Tetons. However, it doesn't matter which direction you look. The view is everywhere. In the early morning, having a cup of coffee in the swing counting cows and horses on the north deck is fun. As soon as the house was completed late 2007, wild grasses were planted up to the lawn. It gets better every year as the landscaping has matured and naturally fits with the surroundings. Highland Meadows is 130 acres of land with 6 homes on it. Eventually, there will be more homes but it's peaceful and quiet. It's a short drive into town, but I bought this home because of the feeling you have while you're there.

I enjoy the sun on my face and breathing crisp mountain air. If I want excitment,the Jackson Hole and Teton Valley area offers every kind of recreation imaginable whether it's fishing the Snake River, river rafting, hiking, golfing, riding horses in summer, or skiing and snowmobiling in winter. Sitting on the lawn at Grand Targhee or Jackson Hole Resort in the evening listening to music is my definition of a really great time. I also try to get to the Jackson Hole rodeo at least once every summer.

BEAUTIFUL COMFORTABLE HOME WITH MAGNIFICENT VIEW.

  • 5 of 5
This house was exactly as described. It was perfect for three couples.The views from the porch were beautiful and the hot tub was very relaxing! We were surprised at the nice grocery store in Driggs. The furnishings were nicer than they appear on the web site and the kitchen was very convenient. We arrived after dark and we followed the directions as sent by the owner and they were exact. We were surprised that the house sits on a gravel road which just made us worry we may be in the wrong place! The drives to Teton National Park and Yellowstone National Park were scenic. I would highly recommend this house for the vacationer who wants to get away from the crowds and save money on hotels and dining out. We thoroughly enjoyed it.

COMPLETE AND UTTER SERENITY... WITH A VIEW!

  • 5 of 5
Our family really enjoyed our stay! The setting is unbelievable and it truly was the most restful vacation my husband and I have ever taken! My teenage daughters made friends with the neighboring cows that visited every evening. My young son enjoyed watching all the ground squirrels that are EVERYWHERE! We made good use of the hot tub, rain or shine. The house was very clean and had all the comforts of home. Our family visited Yellowstone (about a 2hr drive away) and the Grand Tetons (about 45 minutes away). My son played 9 holes at the Targhee Village Golf Course, very reasonably priced and the owners are very friendly. Well stocked grocery store in Driggs. Definitely recommend TWR Grill for breakfast and Tony's Pizza for dinner, both located in Driggs. Our only regret is that we couldn't stay longer. We hope to be back soon!

FRIENDLY, KNOWLEDGABLE AND FAIR OWNER

  • 5 of 5
My party had booked a week over the upcoming summer to stay at this beautiful home and enjoy all of the nature that Idaho and Wyoming has to offer. The owner was very honest and informative through the reservation process and even gave me some preliminary ideas of things to do during our stay. I could tell she is proud of her property.
Though we were greatly looking forward to the trip, some unexpected medical costs forced us to have to cancel our vacation. I contacted the owner about our situation and she was very gracious. I felt so bad about it, but she was nothing but kind, quickly refunded the deposit without taking any sort of fee, and then encouraged us to look her up again if we get a chance to make it out. We definitely will, and hope it's sooner rather than later! If any of your are looking to book with an owner who genuinely cares about your experience and treats people fairly, look no further. I will not hesitate to book through her again. Thanks again for everything! Hope to be out someday soon!

WINTER WONDERLAND

  • 5 of 5
We just returned from our amazing 11 day Winter Wonderland vacation in Driggs. Every detail of our stay was perfect from the easy reservation process to the beautiful home. The owner has created a house that immediately feels like home. We enjoyed hours outside playing in the snow and then soaking in the hot tub while admiring the amazing views of the Tetons. We skied at Grand Targhee which had the best snow we have ever seen, we took a snowmobile trip through Yellowstone, went sledding and ice skating in Victor and enjoyed amazing cuisine at the local restaurants. It was by far the best vacation we have ever experienced.

SERENE AND COMFORTABLE

  • 5 of 5
We found this property to be enchanting with a 270 degree view of the Tetons, fields and mountains. The home couldn't be more comfortable. We found ourselves wanting to stay and "eat in" rather than venturing out because it was so lovely to be there. It was a great refuge after days of touring, fishing and golfing.

PEACE, TRANQULITY AND VIEWS TO DIE FOR!

  • 5 of 5
You never quite know what the setting of the accommodation will be when you book online, but I can guarantee that this has to be one of the most amazing settings with the most stunning view we could possibly have picked. It is so quiet at the house, just the occasional 'moo' from the resident cows and after a busy day out and about, it's the perfect retreat to come back to and really relax. We BBQ'd almost every night and the kids loved the Jacuzzi. There were also games for the kids to play and loads of channels to choose from on the TV. The interior is beautifully decorated and super comfortable with additional mattresses in the main bedroom for little ones if needed. Having a washing machine and dryer was also a bonus. The town of Driggs is lovely and definitely worth spending at least a morning exploring. Victor is also fantastic with quite a few shops which I think is not to be missed. Jackson Hole is an obvious must, but much bigger than either Driggs or Victor so one could dedicate a whole day to shopping in Jackson Hole. We spent 3 full days exploring Yellowstone and the Tetons as there is so much to see and although a long day in the car we loved every minute of it! We entered from West Yellowstone one of the times and then from the Tetons in the South the next 2 times and came back via West Yellowstone. Another not to be missed area which is really close to Driggs is Grand Targhee Resort. We wanted to go horse riding and found a place there - and what a find! They only run in the summer, but the guide was superb and the trail was incredible, you slowly climb up to the top of the hill through meadows, trees and grassland until you get to a view point - and wow what a view - and it was really reasonably at about $39 pp. The Spud Drive-In in Driggs looked pretty cool as well, but as we were in a big 15 seater van, it wasn't the most practical car for a drive-in so we didn't get to go. The supermarket in Driggs was also great, really big and easy to get to. All in all we had such an amazing time, it really felt like a home from home and I think I could quite easily relocate to Driggs one day!! Thanks to Carolyn for letting out her beautiful home so that we could experience a piece of paradise for a week.
