"... A spectacular house with incredible uninterrupted views of the Grand Teton—— close enough to the town of Jackson Hole to be able to pop out for dinner, and we found it clean and perfectly stocked with anything we might have needed. There are also fantastic jogging opportunities from right outside the property, and hiking trails just a few minutes away—— waking up to that view is worth the trip alone! We recommend it for a wildly out of the ordinary stay. We’ll definitely be back!”

B.G. Sacramento, California

“An experience our family will never forget and you are without a doubt a very gracious hostess— we had a huge Bull Elk come into your backyard a thrilling experience to view one so close…. Also a great treat to have mountain Rams come up to our vehicle on the road to the house! Several Coyotes and a Fox.” “We loved it and look forward to going back again.”

F.S. San Antonio, Texas

“We had a fabulous time, enjoying the views from the house, cooking in the well equipped kitchen, sitting on the veranda, exploring Jackson Hole, hiking in the Grand Teton Park and rafting the Snake River. The ranch makes for very comfortable living and it’s location is second best to none!"

C.H. England

“Wyoming completely won our hearts! The house was so welcoming and comfortable, the weather was perfect, and the scenery was The BEST!” C.S. Cary, N.C.

C.S. Cary, N.C.

"... Your home was just great: comfortable and warm, with spectacular views and location. My husband particularly enjoyed the heated stone floors!... But the highlight has to have been awakening on Christmas morning to the full moon setting over the Tetons and the sunrise just turning the tops of the mountains pink shortly after. It was magical, and an unforgettable experience...We were able to see coyote, elk, and big horn sheep every day in our drives back & forth to the house. Visiting the park in the winter after all our years of summer visits was just amazing...Enjoying the bald eagles and sighting a few moose as was an incredibly special and memorable week."

S.H. Oakland, California

"...Wow! It is exactly as you described but even more so. As soon as we walked in the door we knew it was special and we appreciate your sharing it with us. Our guests too will be delighted when they see the house but we are glad they don't arrive for several days so that we can enjoy it ourselves...We are still exploring and learning our way around all that this beautiful house and setting have to offer."

"Don't even know where to begin. This was the best vacation we EVER had. The house was absolutely beautiful, comfortable and everything we could ask for. My family did not want to leave, but unfortunately we had to. The scenery was breath taking and not to mention all the wildlife we saw right in the backyard..... Coyotes, badgers, moose, sheep. pronghorn and plenty of colorful birds. My husband is not a coffee drinker but he couldn't wait to wake up in the morning and sit on the deck and drink a hot cup of coffee and enjoy the beautiful sunrise. We are back in the South sweating our butts off, wishing we were still there. We are definitely planning to come back next year. Thank you so much for having us in your lovely home and creating the BEST MEMORIES EVER. So sad to leave"

Incrediable Wild West safari

  • 5 of 5

Fantastic location !! The children loved the Western Decor and animal mounts. Herds of Elk and buffalo surrounded the house. It was our best house rental by far.

No "possibly" about it, this is the most desirable house!

  • 5 of 5

This house delivers! True western-style ranch house in a western-style town. The house is absolutely stunning. The views are mesmerizing and wildlife is everywhere. Our trip to Jackson was a bucket-list trip and this house only enhanced our experience. Not to mention we spent Christmas here, which made it extra special. The house is well stocked with everything you need, including firewood for the awesome fireplaces. Simply put, for those looking for a beautiful house, look no further. Awesome! Congratulations and thank you to the owners of this amazing property. We hope to return!

Lovely family vacation

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from a multi-generational family vacation at this house (3 - 75 yo). The house worked very well for our party of 10 to sleep there and also was excellent for our family celebration of 20 people for many dinners. The views are spectacular and the location is very unique - it's reasonably close to town (5 - 10 minute drive) and yet still feels private & remote in the Elk Refuge (where there is a lot of wild life). The house is also very well stocked with lots of toilet paper, paper towels, condiments, dinner & glassware for 24, etc.. Finally, the deck and the pool table were a big hit! Thank you for a great family vacation!

This home is absolutely incredible!! The home is very spacious and warm. The views of the Elk Refuge snow-capped Teton Mountains are amazing. We really enjoyed grilling the local fare on the spacious deck and perparing a meal in the modern kitchen for our friends. The location is perfect. Just 5 mins to the heart of town, 10 minutes to Teton Village, 15 mins to Teton National Park and 45 mins to Yellowstone. And staying in the Elk Refuge was truly amazing. We definitely plan to return again. Hopefully, around the hoilidays.

Amazing retreat in the Tetons

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week here with friends and family and this house provided the ultimate getaway experience. It has every amenity we could have wanted but more than that, the home itself is so unique and we loved it. The bedrooms all offer comfort and privacy, the kitchen is well-appointed, and the hot tub, pool table and dartboard were so great to have on hand. The western decor is all-in and we were amazed by the sculptures and taxidermy on display. Lastly, the setting is breathtaking. The whole house offers unrivaled views of the Tetons and we witnessed an elk run that made us feel like we were in Africa. A spring break we will never forget.
