About Joseph

All of the owners of this property have spent a lot of time in Jackson Hole. This photo is actually of a few of us in Granite Canyon.

Joseph purchased this house in 2006

Why Joseph chose Jackson Hole area

The deck and access to the Snake River sold it for us.

What makes this house unique

Being so close to the Snake River is fantastic. It's easy to kill a couple of days just hiking around the property and going down to the river. There is a bald eagle that lives on the opposite side of the river who you can oftentimes see hunting!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Snake river rental was lovely. We had a lovely visit.

Thanks you for making our stay really special. I hope we left it as you like.

a river runs through it

  • 5 of 5

I was a guest of this house last fall and was blown away by Jackson Hole in the fall. Myself and 3 other couple stayed here. The colors of the trees were incredible along the entire river area. Every morning I would walk down to the Snake River and get my line wet. I even reeled in few cuttys and rainbow trout. I felt like i could walk along the property for an hour before i reached the next house. It was my own private fishing paradise. Also I hired a guide and floated other sections of the Snake as well as a couple trips to the Grey´s and Hoback River. All were within a half hour of the property. The house was immaculate and I would recommend this place especially for those who like to be near Jackson but without all the madness the center of a tourist driven town. I hope to go back in the future to hunt in the fall as its located in the heart of the elk migration.

I was surprised at how reasonable the price was after seeing the hotel rates in town, not to mention the kitchen was perfect for meals for the 7 of us.

Roomy comfortable house with great patio!

  • 4 of 5

Great roomy house with lodge feel. Loved the patio fireplace and somewhat challenging access to the river. House was clean and comfortable. Kitchen was well supplied. Wifi and cell service was sporadic at best.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the kind words. We really pride our home on being comfortable. It's by no means fancy, but very practical and yes the back patio is wonderful. The path is a bit tricky and the reason why in our description we write, "The path is rustic and may be difficult to navigate for people who are not sure footed. " I'm out here now and the cell phone service from Verizon is not very good. I can get calls outside, but not inside so I rely on our wifi for most communications. This is hopefully something that will improve as they improve the corridor between Jackson and Star Valley. Please come again!

Reasonable Value and Location

  • 3 of 5

House was well equipped and big enough to accommodate our party of seven. Location was close enough to Jackson and allowed for reasonable travel time to the National Parks. Property could use upgrades to the sliders/screens but overall was well maintained

Owner's Response: Thanks for the review. The sliding door in the back is a bit heavy. It's an incredibly thick glass as to not let in cold during the winter months. The property is large and we do not water the lawn because we find it to be wasteful. By the time August rolls around in Wyoming the laws aren't so green. We are looking into alternatives to create a more natural landscape that will be more visually appealing.

The house was very spacious and clean. The landscaping could have been better maintained. The house is on a very busy highway and with the windows open, this created a lot of noise. Sitting on the deck was not as enjoyable with the traffic noise. Rental period should be 7 days not 6 days. Overall very nice house.

Owner's Response: Thanks for the kind words. Landscaping in front of the home is our biggest challenge, but we are looking into natural solutions that doesn't involve watering the lawn because we find that wasteful. Enjoy the rest of your summer.

Simply Amazing! Nature, Wildlife, River, & More!

  • 5 of 5

This was my first time visiting Jackson Hole, WY, and we could not have picked a better place! The house was extremely comfortable, clean, and spacious. We weren't right in the downtown "touristy" area, yet a short distance away...which was great because we really got to enjoy the peace and tranquility of our surroundings. We did venture to the many restaurants and nightlight downtown, yet ended each night circled around the fire-pit out in the backyard. Overall, I would without a doubt visit Jackson Hole again and if it's available, definitely picking Joseph's house!

Thank you, Joseph! We thoroughly enjoyed our vacation!
