A fine location and a splendid home in the heart of Driggs, ID - near Grand Teton, well near enough!
"While in Yellowstone we had the choice between Gardiner and West Yellowstone and found we preferred Gardiner hands down to West Yellowstone. While in Grand Teton National Park, one has the choice between Jackson Hole and Driggs and the choice is very much the same - a tourist trap versus a real working town. Driggs wins - no contest really. I mean Jackson has a Ripley's Believe It or Not - do I need to say more? Driggs has Teton Thai and Pendl's Bakery! And Big Hole BBQ is just down the road in Victor, ID - their Mac & Cheese should not be missed. And you have the added bonus of traversing the remarkably impressive Teton Pass every day on the way to the park. The sight of the valley with Jackson spread out below as you hit the apex of the pass is not available to those who only stay in Jackson. (Driggs adds only a few more minutes to your commute.) The cottage is a gem. One of the warmest and most welcoming VRBOs that we have enjoyed. The kitchen is well-appointed and surprise of all surprises - THERE WAS A TEA KETTLE! We drink tea. Everyone else in the dang world seems to drink coffee and every VRBO is well set-up for coffee drinkers but never for those who drink tea. We even travel with a "traveling" tea pot and no tea kettle is an inconvenience. Kathy listed the Broulim's Grocery store in her VRBO listing but failed to state that IT IS ENORMOUS! A huge grocery store with everything you might ever hope to find well-stocked and ready to consume. Gardiner does not have this - neither does West Yellowstone. Even Livingston does not have such a large grocery store. It's an asset. The house is well-located in town. Ans easy walk to Pendl's delights as well as Teton Thai (I have two words for you: Bison Pho. It's out of this world.) One could even walk to Broulim's. The bathroom is modern and there were more than enough extra towels and washcloths and the water pressure is very strong and satisfying. The beds were comfortable. But it is the atmosphere of the cottage that makes the place. Others have mentioned the lack of curtains over the raised decorative windows but we did not find this a problem. There was no ambient light to speak of in the night so no light shone in. And we are up with the dawn most of the time so I see it more as a natural alarm clock than a deterrent to sleep. Kathy sent a "welcome note" via e-mail. I always like to have some means of contacting the owner in case something goes wrong. Nothing ever does, but it's better to be safe..."

"We enjoyed our stay. The location is perfect; we could walk to town and come back for meals and to enjoy time on the lovely deck. Everything was clean and comfortable.
Recommendations: Replace the broken wine opener. (We were excited to open a bottle of wine after unpacking and found the broken wine opener. The shops in town did not have one so we drove back to Safeway and bought a new one. Not a show stopper.) It would be nice to have something under the BBQ to catch the drippings."

"We used the loft for our family vacation. It was exactly as depicted in the description. Jodi is so great to deal with and was always very quick to respond. Everything was very clean! Great Parking...quiet...and close to all amenities of downtown Coeur d' Alene! We will definitely return!"
