Beds for 10 in this beautiful and spacious 3 BR + loft, 2 full bath house on 1.5 acres off of Ski Hill Road, between Driggs and Grand Targhee Resort. 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 is fantastic outdoors music concerts and festivals. There is also fantastic 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!

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

I am a pediatrician who teaches at a family medicine residency and my wife is a physical therapist and certified yoga instructor. We have a daughter, a son, two dogs, a cat, and too many other little pets. We love to do just about anything outdoors as a family.
We 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 youhave our heaven on earth--Driggs and the Teton Valley.
