Overview

Driggs House Rental Photos and Description

Beautiful Modern Style House, Unreal Views, 3 Bedrooms+Loft, 2 Baths (Sleeps 10)

Beds for 10 in this beautiful and spacious 3 BR + loft, 2 full baths house on 1.5 acres off of Ski Hill Road, between Driggs and Grand Targhee Resort. Air conditioning installed May 2015--rare for Teton Valley! Great views of Grand Teton and surrounding mountain ranges through huge picture windows, plenty of privacy, and peace and quiet. It is a 5 minute drive into town, where there is an excellent, modern grocery store, a fine wine shop, several outdoors shops and outfitters, and many other stores, as well as several very good restaurants. It is 9.7 miles (about a 15 min. drive) up to the ski area, where there is fantastic downhill and nordic skiing, as well as a tubing hill.

Grand Targhee consistently gets more snowfall than any other ski area in Idaho, and has unbelievable powder skiing! Additionally, throughout the valley there are multiple opportunities for nordic skiing and snowshoeing in the winter.

When the snow melts, the trails are great for hiking and mountain biking, and there are fantastic outdoors music concerts and festivals. There is also fabulous fly-fishing in the area with 3 world-renowned rivers (S. Fork Snake, Henry's Fork, and Teton) and ~ 20 productive smaller streams within 40 minutes.

We are a 45 min drive over the pass to Jackson Hole, and an hour drive up to Yellowstone National Park. Many people say that the summers in the Teton Valley are even better than the winters--come see for yourself!

For details about skiing / snowboarding / nordic skiing during the winter and music festivals / mountain biking / hiking during the summer at Grand Targhee, check out Grand Targhee's website.

Amenities in the house include:

Main floor:

* Master BR with king size, Sleep By Numbers bed, huge walk-in closet, and large bathroom that includes oversized tub, shower, and double sinks.

* 2nd BR with king size bed

* 2nd full bath with shower / bathtub combo

* Large great room / den with incredible views through the many large picture windows!

* Dining area with dining table with leaves and chairs that can accommodate up to 10 people

* Huge, full kitchen with all appliances

* Full size washer and drier

2nd floor:

* Loft area with TV / DVD, 70% sized game table (ping pong / air hockey / pool), and full size fold-out futon

* 3rd bedroom with 2 single beds and 1 queen size bed

* Anteroom with futon cushions that could potentially sleep 2 additional people (this would allow sleeping space for 12 total).

I have chosen to not have cable or satellite television, internet, or land line telephone, because we regard this house as an escape from everyday life and an opportunity to get 'off the grid.' If needed, there is great wireless telephone access at our house, with 4G data via both AT&T and Verizon, and perhaps others. We use our cell phones for communication, and in the rare event that we require internet, we use our cell phone as a hotspot via its 4G connection.

Please come check out my house, and one of my favorite places on Earth. And please let me know if you have any questions or need any recommendations during your stay. I want you to be thrilled with your stay in our house and your time in the Teton Valley!

About Perry Brown

I am a pediatrician who teaches at a family medicine residency. I have a daughter, and a son. I love to do just about anything outdoors as a family.

Perry Brown purchased this house in 2011

Why Perry Brown chose Driggs

I discovered Driggs and the Teton Valley back in 1999, and immediately fell in love with the area. During the winter, the powder skiing at Grand Targhee is UNBELIEVABLE, plus there are many different places to nordic ski and snowshoe. The summers are fantastic, with beautiful weather, cool nights, and unending outdoor activities that include hiking, biking, fishing, rafting, and many great outdoor music concerts and festivals. Throw in the great restaurants and outdoor shops in Driggs, how nice the locals are here, that Jackson Hole is 40 minutes away, and that Grand Teton and Yellowstone National Parks are only an hour away for some fun day trips, and you have my heaven on earth--Driggs and the Teton Valley.

Perfect for our ski/board trip!

  • 5 of 5

The cabin was the perfect location for our ski/boarding trip! We spent a couple days at Targhee and then a day at Jackson. It worked out great with the drive being less then an hour to both hills. The cabin has a lot more space then I expected. We were a group of 10, but there was still ample space to hang out and sleep without ever feeling like we were in each other's space. The kitchen is large and very functional with all the necessities and more, which we really appreciated as we cooked most all our meals. I've arranged a lot of ski trips in a lot of different locations, and using this cabin was definitely the best worth for our money. I would definitely recommend staying here, and hope to use it again for future trips!

Great Experience Every Time

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at this property twice per year for the last three years. We have spent 4-5 days/ trip in both the summer and winter. We love this location and the house. It is located only a 5-10 minute drive from downtown and 15-20 minutes from the ski resort. It has amazing views, great amenities, and comfortable/ spacious bedrooms. We have stayed with as little as two people or hosted 3+ couples. Every time there is more than enough space for everyone. We love the kitchen and open first floor plan. Its great for cooking a meal together and enjoying it either around the large kitchen table or by the fire place. I would highly recommend this location to anyone. A true gem. Thank you Perry.

Perfect home and location - we'll be back:)

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect house for our family of seven. We were visiting our daughter and son-in-law who live in Driggs and work at Targhee. We were central to all we wanted to do and very comfortable in the house. We stayed for a week, but wished for more time there. The house afforded the most incredible sunsets on the Tetons. It was"fire on the mountain" every evening. Gorgeous!!! Activities included: downhill skiing at Targhee, cross country skiing in Teton Canyon, movies in Victor, hot springs above Flagg Ranch, snow coach into Yellowstone out of West Yellowstone, Audubon bird count, great restaurant/distillery in Jackson,etc. We were always happy to come back to our amazing home away from home where we ate many delicious meals. Expect to go back whenever we visit our children. Thanks to the owners for sharing your home with us!!

This home is the perfect place to launch your adventures in to the gorgeous mountains, or to experience world class fishing. Driggs is an outdoor persons dream! The home is comfortable and well appointed with awesome views and plenty of space for relaxing. Plus, the outdoor space is private and great for a group gathering.
