Property description

Windigo Lodge is a beautifully appointed and unique family-owned retreat that is nestled in one of the most pristine yet vibrant areas in North America. It's location was carefully chosen by our family for privacy and solitude without isolation. Come and enjoy all the modern conveniences with the best of rustic feel.

Take a wildlife walk right from our doorstep up aptly named Game Creek and be prepared for lots of encounters. Or launch off from our doorstep on an epic hike, snow shoe or cross-country ski tour through the Jedediah Smith Wilderness and into Grand Teton National Park. With your morning coffee in hand, be sure to check the ridge opposite the Lodge for moose, elk or deer, using the spotting scope on the stairwell. Don't be surprised, however, if you see a 'visitor' behind the Lodge! World class fishing spots are too numerous to mention, and golfing opportunities abound. Dry Ridge Outfitters, which operates horseback riding and pack trips out of Moose Creek Ranch in the next drainage over from Game Creek, offers a 5% discount to folks staying at Windigo Lodge.

Quaint Victor, Idaho is three miles away, and provides a high-quality fish market and grocery, espresso and malt shops, a first-rate supper club, and a great video store. It is only 11 miles to Driggs, Idaho, which features full-service grocery and hardware stores, plus outdoor clothing and gear shops. Jackson Hole is 20 minutes away over beautiful Teton Pass. Dine and play in the western town of Jackson, then drive through Grand Teton and Yellowstone National Parks.

On winter mornings, call the snow report and choose between the endless steeps and glades of Jackson Hole, and the world famous powder of Grand Targhee resort. There is plenty of track-set cross country skiing nearby, and you can take the kids to Snow King Resort for affordable day or night skiing. Or, for the adventurous, zip up Teton pass to access some of the best back-country skiing in the world.

We invite you to experience the warmth our family holds for Windigo Lodge and this amazing part of the country.

Year Purchased: 2000

About: Our 'family members' come from 4 states - Alaska, Hawaii, Washington and Jackson Hole, Wyoming. Personal trips bring us together today,as they have for the last decade, to hike, fish, kayak, raft, ski/snowboard, and explore Grand Teton and Yellowstone National Parks. Windigo Lodge is a special place for us - an active, yet peaceful retreat from our hectic professional careers in medicine, law and business. Windigo trips always feature gourmet meals served family style, to nurture our souls and fuel our bodies for adventure.

Why Victor, ID, USA:
Our family sought year-round recreational property in a scenic, secluded setting that offered nearby skiing, hiking, fishing, whitewater rafting and more...and we found exactly what we were looking for in Windigo Lodge, set on 3.4 acres in beautiful Game Creek.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Windigo Lodge easily expands to hold a large group of friends and family and offers a special peace that converts busy, overextended professionals into relaxed outdoor enthusiasts. The fully equipped kitchen has hosted many a gourmet meal, and gatherings naturally spill out onto the deck or to our private hot tub.
