Why you will love this house:
In the heart of everything and perfectly situated in a quiet and private neighborhood with an adjacent bike path yet only minutes to the Jackson Hole Mountain Resort, Teton Pass for back-country skiing, and numerous cross-country ski centers. Additionally the charming towns of Jackson and Wilson are very close for dining and shopping.
THE HOME :
Architecturally creative with beautiful clean lines and playful decor. Every room in the house was planned around the expansive mountain views and natural light. The feeling is open and clean.
Besides all of the fun mountain activities right out your door, the newest addition is a Rec Room with ping pong, foosball, exercise equipment, and a big comfy couch and TV. In the summer there is a trampoline and soccer net out the door. If you have kids there's nothing like this hideaway for them to ruff and tumble! There is ample storage for coats, boots, skis and even a ski tuning bench in our new gear room.
You will enjoy the JH Land Trust open space out the front door, beautiful mountain views, migrating and resident wildlife including moose, elk, deer, eagles, hawks, osprey, fox, coyotes and the occasional bear. There is also a bike path out the front door which is wonderful in the summer for biking and hiking and winter groomed for skiing, snowshoeing and walking the dog.

Centrally located to everything. Beautiful mountain views and wonderful neighborhood.
Where do I start? Getting up in the morning and seeing a mother moose and her baby sleeping on the kitchen porch...the elk that migrate through the front yard....hopping on the ski shuttle and onto the ski lifts in 10 minutes...skiing with my kids to school along the bike path that is winter groomed for skiing and pedestrians....walking 5 minutes over to the Snake River for some fly-fishing....I could go on all day.
Our family had a GREAT time at the Stilson Fun House! The owners were kind, friendly and accommodating. The kids loved the trampoline and the media room was a big hit for everyone - foosball, ping pong and watching the summer Olympics. The home's location was so perfect - right near the bike path...most enjoyable for our family! As an added plus, the "neighborhood" moose spent a good 15 minutes grazing in the backyard - an exciting start to our summer vacation!
My ski-nuts family spent a great time around Christmas-New Year's. We booked for a week, but then worked out with the friendly and warm owners to stay another week. The listing is accurate, but we found these features particularly pleasant: heated concrete floors downstairs. So, barefoot most of the time -- a great antidote to ski boots. Dog liked this, too. Great light and views. You track the sunlight around the house ending with a view of the Grand (tallest of the Tetons) glowing at sunset (on the few days it didn't snow). Cross Country ski trail (also walking) 100 feet out the door (Moose visits even closer). And, the big family room with ping pong table and TV won the vote for best feature because the ballot box was stuffed by our college age offspring and their friends.
Location was perfect for us. I've stayed up at Teton Village (the ski mountain base) and that's great -- particularly with young kids. But I actually preferred this. Better views and light; half way between the ski mountain and town; easy to the the Jackson Hole ski area at Teton Village via free bus (10 minute walk or 3 minute drive from the house) or car drive. We often had one group go early in car and others follow later by bus. Good flexibility.
All in all, excellent choice for us. It is not fancy, frilly, fussy. It is comfortable, practical, fun, uplifting.
This place has a great location on a lot in Stilson Ranch, private, peaceful and quiet; accessible to skiing, hiking, rafting, fishing and biking. The house seems spacious and the owner recently completed add-ons providing privacy and separate living, sleeping and recreational quarters -cozy. Lots of windows and great views of the Tetons to the north, Glory Bowl to the west and the Bridger-Teton Nat. Forest mountain range to the south. We walk, bike or ski an easy mile or so to the town of Wilson for Latte's, banking, grocery shopping, or the post office. The Stagecoach Bar & Grill in Wilson, Rendesvous Bistro and Snake River Grill in Jackson are "must visit" eating establishments. We are active folks so a trek up "Old Pass Road", Philips Canyon, a walk on the Snake River dike or biking the miles of paths in the area, suit us. Grand Teton and Yellowstone National Park are ideal and easily reached from this property for a day-trip or longer.
