A choice pick.

We found the cabin at Henry's Fork Ranch to be an ideal vacation rental. As impressed as we were with it, we were even more impressed with our hosts. In 15 years of renting vacation properties we have never encountered owners as proactive as Bill & Teresa. The orientation they provided included a rolling tour of their ranch, advice about fly fishing, a tour of the area rivers, and a trip to Ashton. After that we were treated to a tasty supper of homemade cornbread, split pea soup, pie, and piping hot coffee. And they made a point of being available the rest of the week.
The pristine cabin is sweet. Superbly restored, furnished, and updated, it even offers WiFi and has a good home theater with satellite, surround sound, and a 42" LCD TV in the upper loft.
In our opinion the Chester/Ashton area is a great location, only about an hour from either Jackson Hole or West Yellowstone. Compared to the eastern side, the western side of the Tetons is sparsely populated but access to all the rivers, mountains, attractions, and tourist traps is easy. And because the majority of the tourists prefer to crowd into the overpriced Wyoming side of the range, there are no traffic headaches and plenty of room to stretch out and enjoy the sights. Take some time to enjoy St. Anthony with it's growing folk art community that includes shops displaying painting, photography, stained and fused glass, home furnishings, and leather crafting.
We enjoyed the week and have no reservation recommending Henry's Fork Ranch.
