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.

after 6 nights in park lodging this house is heaven!

  • 5 of 5
We stayed in Signal Mountain at GTNP for 2 nights and then 4 nights in YNP. We loved the parks and had a great time but after 6 nights sharing a hotel room with our kids, 11 and 12, we were thrilled to arrive at this lovely, well appointed and peaceful house for 3 nights to end our vacation.
The house had a great layout. We immediately raised all the blinds to have an open airy full view of the mountains and fields. Not sure which we liked more! Kids were thrilled to have a big tv and wifi and I was thrilled to do laundry, meet locals and read on either the front porch, back porch or swing, and we all loved the hot tub.
Although the weather did not cooperate enough to allow us to do whitewater rafting in Jackson or the double kayaks that Carolyn recommended on the Teton River, we still had a great time playing games that were at the house, hot tubbing, bike riding, going on the chair lift at Grand Targhee and doing some short hikes and eating some amazing meals at Teton Thai, Brakemans, the Royal Wolf, Hacienda C, and War Birds. Kids loved the milkshakes at the Victor Emporium.
Watching the storms was amazing-there were times you could not see the Grand Tetons at all. After one storm, we saw a double rainbow and one of the rainbows was complete from one end to the other.
The locals were so friendly. We even turned on the fireplace a few times after a storm would roll through. I loved being wakened by the mooing cows.
Carolyn, thanks for such a lovely house and for being so responsive. Scott, the caretaker, was great too-he got us an extra bike and helped with a medical issue.
We are trying to figure out when we can return next. This was a wonderful end to an amazing vacation.

The best place to stay in Teton Valley!

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I have been making annual visits to Teton Valley, the quiet side of the Tetons, since 2007. This is the sixth property we've stayed at and it is by far the best. The home is beautiful, the area is peaceful and the views are amazing. There are so many things to see and activities to participate in in this area. Yet, we couldn't wait to get back to the home each day to enjoy the views from the deck.

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.
