Driggs cabin description

Thistle Dew Cabin is a custom built log and timber frame home situated in the middle of 45 acres and boasts 360 degree mountain views. From the cabin porch enjoy your coffee while gazing at the backside of Grand Teton National Park. The cabin has 2 private bedrooms with queen beds (one with it's own bathroom and sitting room). Two lofts with queen beds overlooking the living room. There is a wood stove for that cozy feeling, in floor heat, huge windows to let in the afterglow from the mountains and a tower for morning coffee, evening wine or that romantic dinner. The dining room and sun room are made from custom hand carved timber frame old Vermont maple beams for a warmth that only comes from wood. The fully outfitted kitchen has everything you need; microwave, coffee maker, pots, wine glasses, dishwasher and granite counters.The front porch off of the living room is a favorite with rocking chairs, a swing and wide open views of the Grand, Middle and South Teton.
Outside there is a fire pit for roasting marshmallows and telling stories and a wood fired hot tub to soak in and look at the amazing stars. The property also has a bunkhouse for the kids and a real tipi to enjoy. VRBO # 396712 is Thistle Dew Guest House also located on the property. This guest house is separate from the cabin and fully independent. The two properties can be rented together for family reunions or small weddings.
Only 40 miles from Jackson Hole, 1 hour from Grand Teton National Park and only 5 minutes from Wyoming wilderness, Thistle Dew Cabin is a perfect place to relax after a day of hiking, rafting, skiing or fishing. Three of the West's most famous rivers: Henry's Fork of the Snake, South Fork of the Snake and the Teton River are all within an hour's drive from the cabin. Grand Targhee Ski Area is less than 20 minutes away. In winter it is famous for the best powder in the West and in summer every weekend there is a music festival. The area is famous for gorgeous, uncrowded hiking, wildlife watching, clear, cold rivers and the best powder days the West has to offer.
Thistle Dew Cabin is known internationally. Visit the Netherlands travel site Journeylism - http://journeylism.nl/a-potato-palace/. (It is in English)
The town of Driggs is 5 miles down a good paved road. Driggs is the outdoor adventure capital of the area. It boasts great stores, wonderful restaurants and a modern, full service grocery store. Farmer's Markets, Balloon Festivals, an outdoor movie theater straight out of the 50s, running and bike races and Music on Main all make the town of Driggs a fun place to visit.

                  Owner info

                  About the owner: Leslie and Don purchased the 45 acres in 1993 to build a cabin where their family and their grand children would love to come to spend their summers and Don and Leslie can eventually live in retirement. It started off as a small cabin project built by the Roth family; Don and Leslie and their 3 children and guided by Leslie's brother Peter. The labor of love, and tenacity lasted more than 15 years; building up, adding on, tearing out. The resulting home is the original log cabin with timber frame additions. The tower and timber frame entry way was a gift from Leslie's brother. Come explore our custom home and the 45 acres that surround it. Enjoy, relax and get to know us by the personal touches throughout.
