About Carolyn Leigh

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

Why Carolyn Leigh chose Driggs

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.

What makes this house unique

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.

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.

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.

Great Vacation House

  • 5 of 5

Stayed here for eight nights while enjoying Jackson, Tetons and Yellowstone. The house easily accommodated two adult couples. The house is well furnished as advertised and the kitchen was convenient and well utilized. The drive over the pass to Jackson was an easy drive and we made the drive on several days. Enjoyed some of the local flavor in Driggs also. O'Rourke's was a nice sports bar and eatery, also Tony's italian was enjoyable. The local grocery was well stocked. Enjoyed a short trip to Grand Targhee. The trip to Yellowstone was a little far to do an up and back in a single day, but we enjoyed it nonetheless. Carolyn was easy to work with as well as the local property manager. Thanks for an enjoyable vacation.

This is THE place.

VIEWS!! Clean, comfortable, well designed, great hosts and fishing for my hubby. What more could a girl ask for but to peacefully read a book and look at that marvelous valley and Teton peaks? We'll be back.

Best vacation house ever!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I loved this place so much we came back! The house is beautiful, spacious and private, amenities abundant, hot tub fabulous, and view spectacular! Carolyn is great to work with as is her manager.

My husband had great time successfully fly fishing a different spot each day we were there. He generally travelled only 5-10 miles with only xception bein Henry's Fork which is closer to 50-60 miles. Plus, Jackson is a only a 30 minute drive. The countryside is diverse and beautiful, worth driving around to see.

I highly recommend making this a vacation home base and even a destination!

As Advertised

  • 5 of 5

Recently spent nearly a week at this beautiful home. Whenever I was at the house I found myself constantly shooting pictures of the Grand Tetons. Everything was as advertised in the listing! The hot tub received regular use and was quite relaxing to those who chose to use the tub. Did I mention how supremely quiet it is at the residence?? The only thing you hear (outside of the occasional plane flying overhead...to include the occasional military jet, which was neat in and of itself) is the mooing of the neighboring cows.

Yellowstone (West Yellowstone) was around an hour and a half away, while Jackson and the GTNP was around 45 minutes to an hour away. Both definitely within driving distance. Stopped by GT Brewing Company in Victor, ID, was not serving at the time, but was still able to purchase a sample pack to bring home. Ate at several restaurants in town, Hacienda, Provisions (the old TWR Grill), Warbirds and Three Peaks. No complaints and recommend them all.

In a nutshell it was an awesome stay and vacation for myself. If I ever return to the area (which is a foregone conclusion) I will definitely consider this rental again.

The Cajun's Magnificent & Peaceful Stay

  • 5 of 5

We had the BEST time there on vacation! The home was beautiful and truly felt like home to us! Each day we would venture out, starting out early and coming in late afternoon, sometimes later and it was wonderful to see that beautiful home at the end of each fantastic day! We are Cajuns and love to cook, so we did cook several times and had everything we needed in the wonderful kitchen. The hot tub was wonderful! The first few days we were there it rained and we weren’t able to see the tops of the Tetons, but the weather cleared and it was simply magnificent! Each morning we saw hot-air balloons in the distance and it was just icing on the cake, so to speak. Your home made the trip that more memorable!
