About the property

Stunning log home with separate studio apartment 3 bedrooms, 3 baths on 2.5 acre

Our custom built log home on 2.5 acres is located just 15 minutes from Grand Targhee Ski and Summer resort, 45 minutes from Jackson Hole WY and 1.5 hours from the West entrance of Yellowstone National Park making this a perfect location for year round outdoor activities. The main house has a master bedroom upstairs with a queen bed and twin sofa sleeper, bath with beautiful claw footed tub and private deck. Downstairs has a guest room with queen bed and den with a queen sofa sleeper. Full bathroom on main floor. The great room has soaring two story windows overlooking the private pond and the Grand Tetons. A river rock wood burning stove fireplace will keep you toasty on cold winter nights. The fully equipped kitchen with a Viking stove and outdoor BBQ makes entertaining a breeze! A 1600 square foot deck wraps around the home offering spectacular views of the Grand Tetons and Big Hole Mountains. Relax in the private hot tub on the deck while enjoying an incredible view of The Grand Tetons. A separate studio apartment over the 2 car garage gives family members and guests the ultimate privacy. The studio has a full kitchen, bath and a queen and a double bed.

Grand Targhees's 500 inches of annual powder, challenging trails and reasonable prices make this a great family resort. In the summer, it gets even better. The resort has festivals, mountain bike racing, horseback riding, hiking trails and gorgeous views of the Teton Valley. You can enjoy day trips to Yellowstone and Grand Teton National Parks to experience their natural wonders. World class fly fishing on the Teton River is only 5 minutes away and the world famous "South Fork" of the Snake River is a quick 30 minute drive. The house is within one mile of magnificent hiking trails in Jedediah-Smith Wilderness. A perfect year round getaway!

About John Meeks

After vacationing in Teton Valley, my wife and I fell in love with the "quiet side of the Tetons". We purchased this beautiful log home so we can someday retire here. We were married by the pond in the shadow of the Grand Teton. With two additions to the family, we now enjoy great family vacations up here. We hope you make some great memories at our cabin in Teton Valley.

John Meeks purchased this house in 2005

Why John Meeks chose Teton Valley

Beautiful custom built log home hand made by the previous owner. Close proximity to all outdoor activities.

Guestbook comments from the owner

My wife and I and our Lab vacationed here for a week and loved it. It was a perfect base for our day trips into Yellowstone. We were very impressed with the view of the Grand Teton right in front of us. The house was clean and far enough away from town that we felt secluded but close enough to get groceries. We'll be back in the future.

Beautiful house and views!

  • 5 of 5

We loved this house! The house and the views were spectacular! The space over the garage was an added bonus and gave us plenty of room for our group. We enjoyed visiting Jackson and Driggs. We would definitely stay here again.

Fantastic location. Grounds need upkeep.

  • 3 of 5

The view on the "quiet side" of the Tetons is truly magnificent. And the setting *is* quiet. Ponds and lawn were very well-maintained. Weeds, though, created walking hazards on two sets of outdoor stairs, so we had to trim them back. A thistle "forest" of up to 7 feet in height is growing between the garage and the house, giving this part of the property a sorry, long-abandoned look, like the broken washing machine off the kitchen (the working one is in the garage). A left section of the main stairs going up to the front door will likely not survive another season. The bridge over the creek, while still fully drivable, also has a noteworthy hole in it. This beautiful place deserves some TLC, and soon.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your feedback it is greatly appreciated. I arrived the day after you left for vacation with my family and noticed the thistles you referenced and removed all of them and notified the gardening crew to make sure they don’t come back. I also had the bridge completely resurfaced as the tenant before you drove over it with a trailer and punched a hole in it. I was unable to get that replaced before your arrival so my apologies for that. As for the other items mentioned all are working fine. I’m glad you enjoyed your time in Driggs and thank you for for your candid feedback it helps me keep the home in excellent condition.

Nice place but poorly maintained.

  • 1 of 5

Was probably a nice place a few years ago but lack of maintenance made our stay unpleasant and leaving early before our booking was completed. Many problems. Very surprised at the poor condition. Owners did refund us for one night which we requested but offered nothing more. Would not recommend this home in its current condition.

Incredible views and location

  • 4 of 5

We came to Driggs for the wonderful views of the Tetons, the "alternative to Jackson, Wyoming" atmosphere that Driggs and Victor, Idaho provide. These towns are lovely, have nice little restaurants, shops, and never overcrowded. The house suited our extended family, grand parents, parents and grandkids. It had nice rooms, an amazing great room with floor to ceiling windows that looked onto the Tetons. Only 30 minutes from Jackson and from there easy drives to Teton National Park and Yellowstone.
