Property description

This multimillion dollar 4,000 square foot log home sits on 5 1/2 acres and is bordered on two sides by the Elk Refuge, with breathtaking views of the entire Teton Mountain Range from most rooms. Abundant wildlife including herds of Elk, Buffalo, Moose, Big Horn Sheep, Deer, Antelope and Coyote roam free all winter. The on-sight corral and pasture lands back up to the Elk Refuge and National Forest offering wilderness horseback riding at your doorstep.

This upscale 4 bedroom, plus sleep loft western log home (1 king, 2 queens, 4 twins) plus 3 full bathrooms, sleeps up to 10 people. Exquisitely decorated with cathedral ceilings, custom lodgepole furniture, antler chandeliers throughout, also boasts a diverse collection of trophy animal mounts and a remarkable museum like sculpture garden of 16 life size indigenous bronze animals situated among the wild flowers.
Great location only 10 minutes to downtown, 25 minutes to airport, 60 miles to Yellowstone.

'This is our first (but not our last!!!) stay at the Jackson Hole Elk Refuge Ranch Home. Everyone loves it and my 2 1/2 year old grandaughter wasn't even afraid of all the wildlife! The deck is GREAT, we had a full moon on the Tetons last night - HEAVEN.'
S.C. Tucson, AZ

'What a special place...our family was mesmerized by the views everyday...throughout the day... beautiful sunrises and sunsets. We felt at home, comfortable and had everything needed to create great meals and memories.'
T.P., Jacksonville, Texas

'We had such a wonderful time at your house. We saw tons of wildlife, enjoyed big dinners with the whole group, and took peaceful walks. The kids had a blast and we hope to come back one day. I'm also passing your info on to some other friends.'
C.P. California
'Don't even know where to begin. This was the best vacation we EVER had. The house was absolutely beautiful, comfortable and everything we could ask for. My family did not want to leave, but unfortunately we had to. The scenery was breath taking and not to mention all the wildlife we saw right in the backyard..... Coyotes, badgers, moose, sheep. pronghorn and plenty of colorful birds. My husband is not a coffee drinker but he couldn't wait to wake up in the morning and sit on the deck and drink a hot cup of coffee and enjoy the beautiful sunrise. We are back in the South sweating our butts off, wishing we were still there. We are definitely planning to come back next year. Thank you so much for having us in your lovely home and creating the BEST MEMORIES EVER. So sad to leave. '
