Property description

Enjoy the quiet side of the Tetons in a lovely guest house with a huge deck overlooking the Grand Tetons and the Big Hole Mountains. Grand Teton National Park and Yellowstone are just a short drive. Nothing can compare to the full moon rising over the Tetons or being able to hike or snowshoe out the front door into the scenic rolling hills. Thistle Dew Guest House is the perfect base for enjoying this beautiful area.
You will have all the comforts of home in the fully furnished apartment. Built in 2009, Thistle Dew Guest House is a post and beam beauty with wood floors, large windows, comfortable beds and a huge deck for enjoying life. The kitchen is fully outfitted right down to the spices. The master bedroom has a queen bed and the other bedroom has two twin beds. The comfortable couch in the living room folds down into a bed. The living room has a TV with DVD's and videos. There is wi-fi throughout the guest house. Parking is in the garage downstairs.
The sauna was built in the Swedish style with interior rock walls and steaming stove.
Thistle Dew Guest House sits in the middle of 45 secluded acres surrounded by gorgeous mountain views. Access is from a good county road. The guest house is available all year round so our guests can enjoy all the seasons of this spectacular area. Thistle Dew Cabin #473319 VRBO shares the property. The cabin is not part of the guest house but both can be rented together for weddings or family gatherings. Both properties are unique and separate but share the same gorgeous view.
In the summer be adventurous and hike (or horse back ride) the many trails connecting the foothills to Grand Teton National Park or go fishing on some of the West's premier fishing rivers. All are within a few miles of Thistle Dew Guest House. You can easily explore the wonders of Yellowstone National Park (only 90 miles north) or Grand Teton National Park (50 minutes East in Wyoming). Jackson Hole, Wyoming is 45 minutes away with some great shopping, excellent music from the Summer Music Festival and diverse restaurants.
In winter, after a day of powder skiing Grand Targhee Ski area, come home to your comfortable apartment and enjoy a barbecue. Or appreciate the convenience of a day of cross country skiing the trails of Jedediah Smith Wilderness within a couple of miles from your mountain retreat. Snowmobiling is offered in the Big Hole mountains to the west of the guest house.
Thistle dew Guest House is located 5 miles from the cute town of Driggs, Idaho. Driggs has all the conveniences you will need; huge grocery store, coffee shops, post office, shopping, outdoor shops, back country and fishing guides and great restaurants.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2008

About the owner: Don and Leslie Roth live in Laramie, Wyoming. Don is a professor and administrator at University of Wyoming. Leslie also works at UW and is a former junior high Reading teacher. They are avid hikers and skiers who have explored most of the back country in the area. They have 3 children and 6 grand children who love Thistle Dew.

Why the Owner Chose Driggs:
Don and Leslie Roth have lived in Wyoming since 1978. They purchased the 45 acres of land in Tetonia in 1996 to build a family vacation home. Thistle Dew Cabin was built by the Roths after 10 years of hard work. Thistle Dew Guest House was begun in 2008 and completed in 2009. It was built to accommodate a growing family of grandchildren who all love the area. Summer vacations and every other Christmas are now spent at Thistle Dew.

The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
The property is surrounded by beauty and tranquility. It shares the 45 acres with Thistle Dew Cabin but it is totally unique. When the moon comes up behind the Tetons or the snow geese fly over head in the fall it is magical.
