About Laura Defty

Our family has been visiting the Alpine area and Alpine airpark for only a couple of years, but we have enjoyed the most every visit. We enjoy the summer with all the fishing, rafting, and hiking. During the winter, we take out our snowmobiles and hit the fresh powder and hundreds of miles of trails with our kids. No matter what time of year we are here, not only do we enjoy the incredible beauty of this area, but we enjoy the community and people and how they always make us feel welcome.

Laura Defty purchased this house in 2010

Why Laura Defty chose Wyoming

Our property has so many great features, from being recently remodeled, to having a hanger for your airplane, to accommodate your family comfortably. The kitchen is fully stocked and ready for your arrival. We have coffee and seasonings and all the cooking ware you should need.

What makes this house unique

The unique benefits would be to have a 40' x 36' airplane hanger to use and a late model vehicle (additional charges will apply).

We also have a lovely back porch that looks over the Airpark and has partial views of Lake Palisades.

Everything you could ask for......

  • 5 of 5

This is the perfect destination for those that love to fly, love the mountains, and want to experience the wonders of Jackson Hole. Land on RW 13, turn off the runway to your hangar and most comfortable accommodations. A car is available should you choose to lease so all you need to do is unpack and begin enjoying this GREAT home. We wanted for nothing. The owner was a text away to resolve any problems and most accommodating in dealing with ours. Their maintenance rep was equally accessible and accomodating. The Eagles Nest will not disappoint. We will be back.

Clean and comfortable

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay. The home is beautiful and everything we needed was included. We really like renting homes rather than hotels. We have a common group area that we spent a great deal of time talking, laughing and playing games. The kitchen is beautiful and fully functional. What a great way to have all family or friends together in one place. We will be coming back.

Excellent stay!

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful stay in a beautiful setting. The house was large enough to comfortably accommodate our extended family of 5 adults and 3 children. The house was well stocked, very clean. Simply gorgeous. An added bonus was the air strip in back of the house. We all enjoyed watching planes land and take off. Not in the least intrusive; could rarely hear the planes from inside the house. We completely enjoyed our stay and would highly recommend.

The only way to run the river and visit Jackson!

  • 4 of 5

This is the second time that we've stayed at the "Eagle's Nest." We look forward to many more visits! Clean, comfortable, spacious, and close. My whole family was able to share time together in one location. Convenient to running into Jackson or playing on the river. The grand-kids especially liked watching the planes fly in and out. The home is due for some maintenance, however. Specifically: pest control (spiders, earwigs, cobwebs inside and out), lighting (many fixtures either not working, missing bulbs, or burned-out), and plumbing (basement toilet leaks, basement master has wet damaged carpet & wood trim, and the ceiling in the basement family room is damaged from past and currently leaking pipes to the main floor kitchen or bathrooms above. Except for the maintenance issues and perhaps a few more needed chairs around the dining room table or in the basement family room and loft, this is the perfect family retreat. We hope to be back again soon!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review. As soon as we heard about any moisture we immediately had our maintenance man on site. We noticed the damage caused by a leak in a pipe and stopped the leak causing the issue. We take excellent care of our home and are quick to respond to any maintenance issues. I have an excellent staff of guys and gals that clean and keep up on maintenance and we take pride in providing a super clean and well maintained home to each of our guests. This is an unfortunate incident that was out of our control. It is scheduled to be fixed as quickly as possible. The light bulbs you mentioned must of recently went out and they have been replaced with new. I am sorry it was your family that had to find the leaking pipe and wet carpet. I glad you still had a good time and enjoyed your stay.

An Amazing 4th of July

  • 5 of 5

This house has an excellent deck to relax on both front and back with views of the mountain ranges so bring a spotting scope for the mountain goats! In the back yard you'll be able to enjoy planes and helicopters taking off from the runway. Once the sun starts to die down enjoy the spectacular view of the mountains and sunset. Once the sun has gone down unpack the camping chairs you brought and sit around the camp fire! The house is spacious and was big enough to accommodate all 10 of us staying there. I hope to stay here again and the friends we were with are already booking it again!
