Overview

About the property

Beautiful Modern Style House, Great Views, 3 Bedrooms+Loft, 2 Baths (Sleeps 10+)

Beds for 10 in this beautiful and spacious 3 BR + loft, 2 full baths house on 1.5 acres off of Ski Hill Road, between Driggs and Grand Targhee Resort. Air conditioning installed--rare for Teton Valley! 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 are fantastic outdoors music concerts and festivals. There is also fabulous 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!

For details about skiing / snowboarding / nordic skiing during the winter and music festivals / mountain biking / hiking during the summer at Grand Targhee, check out Grand Targhee's website.

Amenities in the house include:

Main floor:

* Master BR with king size bed, huge walk-in closet, and large bathroom that includes oversized, soaker tub (jets do not currently function), shower, and double sinks.

* 2nd BR with king size bed

* 2nd full bath with shower / bathtub combo

* Large great room / den with incredible views through the many large picture windows, and TV with Roku for streaming content (no broadcast channels)

* Dining area with dining table with leaves and chairs that can accommodate up to 10 people

* Huge, full kitchen with all appliances

* Full size washer and drier

2nd floor:

* Loft area with TV / DVD (no broadcast channels), 70% sized game table (ping pong / pool; air hockey does not currently function), and full size fold-out futon

* 3rd bedroom with 2 single beds and 1 queen size bed

* Anteroom with futon cushions that could potentially sleep 2 additional people (this would allow sleeping space for 12 total).

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

About Perry Brown

Perry is a pediatrician who teaches at a family medicine residency. Desiree is a sociology professor at a nearby university. Together, we have 1 daughter and 5 sons. We love to do just about anything outdoors as a family.

Perry Brown purchased this house in 2011

Why Perry Brown chose Teton Valley Area

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 you have my heaven on earth--Driggs and the Teton Valley.

Loved it

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week here while we exploring the Teton Range area and loved it. The pictures don't really do it justice, the place is very comfortable, and all the light is amazing.

The kitchen/dining/living room is very functional, and very comfortable. The kitchen was well stocked, and everything worked well. All the light from the windows was great.

The patio is awesome, we spent our mornings having coffee outside, and made all our meals out on the gas grill. Had a couple fires in the pit as well.

The bedrooms were comfortable, the master is very large with a nice walk in closet. The guest room is a little smaller, but still comfortable.

The master bathroom was nice, as was the guest bathroom.

We didn't use the loft area, but for groups traveling with kids it was be great.

Driving over to the Tetons is a little tedious, as you have to cross over the pass on a steep/winding road. We got tired of that drive after a few trips over. The good thing is we found plenty to do on the Idaho side of the Tetons in close range to the cabin. Highly recommend Table Mountain, Wind/Ice caves, and visiting the ski resort for hiking options using the lifts. Table mountain was probably a favorite hike of the trip, and it was minutes from the cabin. Wind Cave was also great, and my 68 year old parents were able to do that.

The owners were very responsive, and offered some great suggestions for hiking, etc.

Couple things to note:

The cabin isn't in perfect condition, some stuff is a little dated and rough, but this doesn't impact the functionality at all. Just something to be aware of.

If you use the washing machine, but prepared for some serious vibration!

The guest bathroom doesn't have a vanity cabinet, can't put toiletries anywhere

Don't plan on watching much for TV, not a big deal, but worth noting. Wifi worked well.

They have a nice little stereo to use, bring some cd's!

The grocery store in Drigg's is great, plenty of selection, and good prices

Overall we really enjoyed this cabin, we could have stayed for another week. I would definitely come back here if we decided to visit this area again. Great memories.

Beautiful view, great house for kids, drive to Tetons

  • 5 of 5

The views from this house are gorgeous! Lovely little town not far from the Tetons. Took us about 45 minutes to get to the Tetons, Teton Village and Jackson. We were much happier in this home than staying in the busy, touristy town of Jackson. We ate at the Royal Wolf twice. It was delicious! Comfy master bedroom bed. Loved the fire pit, the horseshoes and the billiards/ping pong table! We loved it so much that we were lucky enough to stay an extra night. The loft was a little warm at night but there is a fan and the kids were fine. Perry is very responsive to any questions. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay! BTW, we are a family of 6 and we had more than enough space.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your kind review! We enjoyed hosting you, and are very happy that you had such a fun and relaxing stay! Yes, during more extreme warm weather, like you had during your stay, the loft can get a little warm during the day, but the cooler nights combined with the air conditioning and the overhead fan allow the loft area to cool off quickly during the evening, thankfully. I hope that the rest of your travels were also great! Thanks again!

Wonderful Vacation Home and Good Location

Despite an early hiccup which was quickly remedied, we had an awesome stay at this property. House had all of the expected amenities and we enjoyed ourselves during our 3-night stay. Owner promptly returned all messages and answered all questions and helped resolve any issues that came up.
