"For the past two summers this lodge has been the perfect escape for our family. My husband and I have been fishing the South Fork for over 20 years and as our family grew we began looking for a place that would accommodate all our needs, and this is it. It has a beautiful combination of luxury and comfort yet rustic enough to not let you forget where you are. The location is ideal for enjoying all the wildlife, sweeping sunsets, and the storms that roll in and out. There is plenty of space for my kids to run and play and they've even hooked a few fish from the bank. When we do finally pull ourselves away from the lodge there is plenty to do near by. Besides drifting down the Snake River, we've enjoyed horseback ridding, ziplining and day excursions into Jackson Hole and Driggs. We greatly appreciate Marc opening up his lodge to our family and being so attentive and accessible whenever needed."Guest: ZFamily Date of Stay: June 2014 Review Submitted: August 16, 2014View listing
"We had a great time, and slept very comfortably for our weekend stay. Stand up paddle boards, hot tubbing and Bon fires were the perfect way for us to end our summer. We will be coming back next summer, and making it an even longer trip!"Guest: Samantha Date of Stay: September 2014 Review Submitted: September 21, 2014View listing
"We took advantage of the seasonable late fall to roam the adjacent hills in search of the striking fall colors. We may have been the last vehicles to travel the length of Bear Valley and the Yankee Fork road, we saw no traffic on either and both were lined with brilliant golds and oranges of the turning birch and poplar leaves. The cabin was very well appointed with all the necessary things to make for a pleasant stay. The owner was very gracious in my (limited) contacts with him. Though adjacent to the highway, the traffic noise is not intrusive nor does it seem to affect the local wildlife. While watching the lunar eclipse we saw a fox visit the next cabin when it triggered the motion sensor light the owner had thoughtfully installed to illuminate the front step (if there is no moon out you may have a hard time FINDING the front step without them). The Milky Way shines brightly through the trees, a sight seldom seen by those of us from more urban areas. One key point that differentiates this cabin from most others on VRBO, the owner does his own maintenance and servicing, there is no cleaning fee in addition to the rental costs. This results in a savings of 15-25% over adjacent cabins with absentee owners. This cabin is an excellent value and a comfortable stay that we look forward to using again, soon."Guest: RobNDeb Date of Stay: October 2014 Review Submitted: October 11, 2014View listing
