About Kathy Runyan, Broker/Owner Alta Realty

My husband , Cody and I live on our ranch in Alta, Wyoming just 7 miles up the road from The Cottage. We raise registered Missouri Fox Trotters and have nearly 100 chickens which we feed organically and in turn they provide us with fabulous eggs which we sell at our western store 'Broken Spur' located one mile north of Driggs. We also own Alta Realty located adjacent to The Cottage. Formerly Cody's law office, The Cottage has been renovated to it's present condition, maintaining the original hardwood floors, beams and windows. We love this valley and everything it has to offer--gorgeous scenery, skiing, fishing, horseback riding, golf, and fabulous restaurants.

Why Kathy Runyan, Broker/Owner Alta Realty chose Teton Valley Area

We traveled the western US looking for a beautiful unique location to raise our three children and settled on this 'mountain town'. Our children are now grown but they loved living in Teton Valley, Idaho with all the outdoor activities and beautiful scenery it has to offer. Ask about our new rental at our 50-acre ranch in Alta! Bring your horses and ride the Tetons.

What makes this house unique

When you stay at 'The Cottage' you can enjoy a day of skiing at Targhee then walk to one of the fine restaurants such as O'Rourkes, Three Peaks Cafe, Teton Thai, Pendl's Bakery, Tonys Pizza, Royal Wolf, Agave Mexican Restaurant or Provisions. In case you need to rent skis, bikes or outdoor equipment, three outdoor shops are located close by. Peaked Sports is directly across the street and Yostmark's new location is just 1/2 block away as well as Habitat. Broulim's grocery store is also a short walk away and offers great organic foods. Barrels and Bins Health Food store offers a variety of organic veggies and fresh smoothies. Beds feature Egyptian cotton linens and Ralph Lauren bedding. Enjoy eggs from our free-range vegetable fed chickens. Fish on our private pond at Sleepy Hollow Ranch in Alta. Take the bus to Grand Targhee Ski Resort-located on bus route-easy to catch!! The location of The Cottage has great access to all amenities.

A real American craftsman cottage

  • 4 of 5

This residence is immaculate and comfortably spacious. The only blip was that we thought the full bath would be part of the master bedroom instead of the half bath. That was our fault for not paying more attention.

The queen size bed was very comfortable. Location was perfect for us.

Great place for a family of four!

Cute little cottage in mountain resort town

  • 5 of 5

Cute, clean, well equipped rental in the heart of a charming mountain resort town, close to restaurants and outdoor activities. Perfect at any time of the year. Close to summer activities such as biking, fishing, and hiking trails. Just a few miles to Grand Targhee for winter skiing with the best powder in North America, and less than an hour to Jackson Hole at a fraction of the cost. If you can't find it here you don't need it!

Nice little cottage in downtown Driggs

  • 5 of 5

Two of us shared this house on a late March ski week at Targhee. Would be comfortable with max 4 people, two sleeping together. Walkable to supermarket and four or five places for dinner, and two great bakeries for the morning. Great food for a little town. Ski shop across the street and another just around the corner. Targhee is a pretty easy drive up the road.

West Yellowstone is about an hour and half north, and is a pretty drive.

Only complaint is minimal channels on the cable system. Bring a Roku device. Wifi was strong.

A Cozy Home!

  • 5 of 5

We rented this property for two months, and loved it! The house is cozy, comfortable and welcoming. It is an older, well-maintained house. It was fully furnished and the kitchen was fairly well-equipped. The appliances are new. The bedrooms had comfortable beds with nice linens. The bathrooms had plenty of good quality towels. Having a washer and dryer on site was great, especially with the need to launder winter sports clothing often. The Cottage is within easy walking distance to an excellent grocery with deli, wonderful restaurants and bars, and two ski shops. There's even a bakery across the street! Also, the shuttle stop for Grand Targhee (only $2.00!) is only 2 blocks away; as we only had one car with us, this gave us great flexibility for activities.

The owner, Kathy Runyon, was responsive and welcoming. We noticed a couple of small issues when we first arrived, and she addressed them immediately, and to our satisfaction. She was always available if we had questions.

As mentioned in other reviews, the Internet connection was sluggish and weak. It made streaming movies, or using the Internet on more than one computer at a time painful. Because we both needed to use the Internet for some work, and since there are very few local TV stations available, (no satellite or dish), having a high-speed connection was important. We were able to pay for additional bandwidth, which helped, but it was still a frustration.

We would definitely recommend this property to anybody. During our stay, we had guests visit for 1-2 days at a time, and there was enough room for all of us to feel comfortable and cozy, without feeling crowded at all. The dining room seats 8+, which makes it lovely to have dinner guests. ( Note: The fireplace is not a working fireplace, which we were disappointed in, as the pictures made it seem to be an integral part of the living room. Not a deal-breaker, but maybe good to know.) This property is a gem - a real home away from home, with an owner who does everything she can to make your visit perfect. We hope to be back again for another visit soon.

Perfect home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

Loved staying here! It was so close to restaurants bars within the town of Driggs. We loved sitting on the front porch relaxing and enjoying the quiet! Kathy was wonderful to work with and was very accommodating. We loved it here!

Best of Teton Valley

  • 5 of 5

The Cottage in Driggs exceeded our expectations. Owner was incredibly easy to work with. Simply the best VRBO experience I have ever had. The property was nicely appointed. I sensed a little influence from DIY show "The Rehab Addict". A lot of little things that made the place seem more homey, made our stay even better. There was plenty of space for 3 or 4 persons. The twin beds in the second BR were comfortable, even though I am used to a queen sized bed. Bathrooms were very clean. Hot water always worked on demand (not waiting). The entire décor was extremely well done and in keeping with the craftsman style construction. The veranda in front was especially welcoming. We were a half block from the center of town. Walked to breakfast and dinner. Except when going out of town to eat, the only driving required was a short trip up to Grand Targhee. Even with heavy snow it was a short and pleasant ride. We had considered staying on slope at Grand Targhee, but when comparing the layout and amenities with The Cottage - it was a "no-brainer". It is always enjoyable when you arrive at a rental location and find it was more than you had anticipated. I would highly recommend this property!!!
