The peace and seclusion of the setting fill a dream for many visitors, to feel as one with nature. Surrounded by Aspen and Pine trees, the Retreat sits on a hill overlooking pastures and fields. Wildlife often come out of their protective habitat to roam the area, giving we humans a wonderful glimpse of nature and forest animals as they should live.

The 1500 sq/ft deck is the perfect place to relax and enjoy nature, the sounds and scenery of the mountains, and breathing the crisp, clean air . Thousands of stars fill the skies at night.

The large lawn offers plenty of room for camping in tents, campers and RV's (no hookups). The large Quonset hut behind the Retreat has a cement floor, electricity for night meals/meetings, tables and chairs...a perfect place to feed a group, in the shade and out of the weather.

This secluded area can accommodate large groups for reunions, weddings and other large gatherings.

About Nessie Zitlau

Carl and Nessie Zitlau are long-time farmers/ranchers of this property.

Nessie Zitlau purchased this house in 1998

Why Nessie Zitlau chose Swan Valley

The land adjacent to Granite Creek Ranch became available some years ago and now our cattle herd grazes the fields. We saw an opportunity to share the beauty of this exceptional 'corner of the world' with others, so are opening up the Aspen Hills Retreat to families and other groups for their vacations, retreats and reunions.

What makes this house unique

Peace and quiet, clean, fresh air to breathe, and beautiful mountain scenery at Aspen Hills Retreat - no one else for a country mile.

2 hours south of the west entrance into Yellowstone National Park,

1 hour west of Jackson Hole, Wyoming.

South Fork of the Snake River, world-class fly fishing...Conant Valley Boat Dock only 3 hours from Retreat.

4-Wheeling and Snowmobile trails within 5 miles.

Idaho Falls, Idaho is only a 50 minute drive (Pop. 50,000) with Museum of Idaho. The Idaho Falls Temple and Visitors Center, and a Greenbelt around the Snake River are landmarks of the city.

Heise Hot Springs Resort with 2 cool pools and 350 ft slide, and a natural hot pool entertain everyone in the family. A new Zip Line has been installed on their mountain.

Yellowstone Bear World - a drive-thru bear and wildlife park is a 35 minute drive.

A 'home-base' for many activities a short distance from the Retreat: Palisades Reservoir and Ririe Reservoir are 30 minute drives for boating and fishing.

The famed South Fork of the Snake River with world-class fly fishing is just a short 3 mile drive, plenty of space for parking your boats.

Other nearby activities can be found on the websit

Tranquil Beauty

  • 5 of 5
This was our family's first stay in Idaho and we certainly hope it is not our last. The house was large, well equipped, and had everything we could have asked for in a vacation home. The owners are accommodating and friendly and Lori, our trail guide at the ranch, was equally as welcoming, knowledgeable, and friendly with adults and children alike. But perhaps the best part is the serene setting of the house itself. The beauty of the surrounding land is breathtaking and inspiring. The solitude and peaceful setting makes one long for simpler times and less congestive places. I would be remiss if I did not mention the deck off the house and the nights here, for in the gathering darkness there appears on a clear night a nighttime sky that rivals any I have ever seen. Words do not do it justice; it is simply something that must be seen to fully appreciate. My lone regret....is that I did not have more time to stay!

Awesome home for family

  • 5 of 5
We had a great time at this house with our grown children and our 6 grandchildren. Lots of fun for the young ones to play in the yard and sandbox and in the garage with the game tables. We have our own raft and did several trips on the nearby Snake including the rapids below Jackson, Wyoming. The house is in a great location for rafting. We also enjoyed Yellowstone, Grand Tetons, & Heise Hot Springs. Beautiful location and great set up!

Owner's Response: We've hosted many families who come to our area to enjoy all the natural beauty and opportunities in our Eastern Idaho 'Neck of the Woods!" The location of Aspen Hills Retreat is central to great fishing boating and other adventures, including Yellowstone Park and Jackson Hole, Wyoming. We're happy to offer this opportunity for creating wonderful memories with your families. The recently added playground area for children has been well used and appreciated by young families. Quonset Hut has lighting, tables and chairs for larger groups as reunions. We're so happy to be able to offer this venue to travelers.
