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.

Right on the River

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here as a family reunion of six adults and one teenager. We thought it was perfect for our needs. It's just 10 miles south of Jackson and close to the Park via Moose-Wilson road.

The house is for sale so one thing we did notice was that some of the furniture has been removed (for staging purposes I assume) but if I hadn't seen the pics I wouldn't have noticed. The house is roomy, spacious and comfortable. I saw some of the reviews about road noise. The house is on a main road but the walls of the house are well insulated so really when you're inside you can't even hear it. As a city dweller I didn't even notice it. My parents live in a small town and even they said they thought the river was noisier than the road, which they loved. The river was flowing at full capacity due to a very wet winter. It was so much fun watching it go by with the occasional rafter floating by.

The kitchen is well stocked with a full size fridge and plenty of seating for our large family. It was just the perfect location for our family vacation. The best part of the house is sitting out on the deck watching the Snake River float by. If you decide to stay here be sure make some time sitting out on the deck. It's beautiful, quiet, and relaxing. It was our favorite part of the house.

Owner's Response: All star guests! The reason why we purchased the home was because of the river. Glad you enjoyed it as much as we do.

Nice, but not what's pictured.

  • 3 of 5

We liked it, but the pictures do not show the current state of the property. The sleeping arrangements are not accurate. The furnishings are not accurate either. The home is for sale, which wasn't made known until the week we were arriving. There are several things they should disclose about the property in the listing, in addition to the above discrepancies; the sliding glass door does not close without being wedged shut with a board (no lock), the stove vent doesn't work, the main doors (front and garage) have no dead bolts so if you're traveling with young children they can open the doors easily (we left behind a door bar we had to purchase) and the house is located on a very busy highway making it quite dangerous, the deck and stone porch are swarming with ants(we sprayed but they really should professionally exterminate) and there is little or no cell phone signal. The owner said they would contact us 24 hours in advance of showing the home, however having no cell phone coverage while actually INSIDE the house it was impossible, so they showed it anyway, which was rather awkward.

It was great!

  • 4 of 5

We had a great time at the snake river retreat. Everything was clean and comfortable. We enjoyed the deck and my boys fished quite a bit. We didn't spend a ton of time at the house but when we were there it was great! We would definitely stay at Joseph's again!

Summer at River House

  • 4 of 5

I stayed at the snake river house in mid June of 2016. The place was really clean and neat. Was a bit different in the pictures like in leaving room and the bedroom at corner were different layout. The property offered everything like extra towels and bed sheets, Shampoo and cleansing stuff and pots and pans for cooking. The only thing I can criticize about the house were: Internet connections was really weak. And extra soft, uncomfortable mattresses. I could not receive any phone calls or text in the house as well as emails (it was extra slow). The mattresses in all rooms were not very comfortable to sleep (very soft). This is general information that if you plan to visit Yellow Stone, The drive to south entrance Yellow Stone was about one and half hours. But in general I give a good feedback and recommend it to everyone who is wants to spend a good time in nature.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your feedback . Some people prefer soft mattresses. We had previously added new mattress covers as we've had feedback to have softer bedding. The living room has been upgraded since the last set of photos and will be updated on the site. The internet can be slow which is typical of the area , we bought the fastest available package . ATT service is the best in that area as far as mobile phones. Sometimes we make compromises to live in beautiful mountains and river valleys. Thanks again for the feedback. We do our best to make a co
