Exquisitely decorated with cathedral ceilings, custom lodgepole furniture, antler chandeliers throughout, also boasts a diverse collection of trophy animal mounts and a remarkable museum like sculpture garden of 16 life size indigenous bronze animals situated among the wild flowers.
Great location only 10 minutes to downtown, 25 minutes to airport, 60 miles to Yellowstone.

"... A spectacular house with incredible uninterrupted views of the Grand Teton—— close enough to the town of Jackson Hole to be able to pop out for dinner, and we found it clean and perfectly stocked with anything we might have needed. There are also fantastic jogging opportunities from right outside the property, and hiking trails just a few minutes away—— waking up to that view is worth the trip alone! We recommend it for a wildly out of the ordinary stay. We’ll definitely be back!”
B.G. Sacramento, California

“An experience our family will never forget and you are without a doubt a very gracious hostess— we had a huge Bull Elk come into your backyard a thrilling experience to view one so close…. Also a great treat to have mountain Rams come up to our vehicle on the road to the house! Several Coyotes and a Fox.” “We loved it and look forward to going back again.”
F.S. San Antonio, Texas

“We had a fabulous time, enjoying the views from the house, cooking in the well equipped kitchen, sitting on the veranda, exploring Jackson Hole, hiking in the Grand Teton Park and rafting the Snake River. The ranch makes for very comfortable living and it’s location is second best to none!"
C.H. England

“Wyoming completely won our hearts! The house was so welcoming and comfortable, the weather was perfect, and the scenery was The BEST!” C.S. Cary, N.C.
C.S. Cary, N.C.

"... Your home was just great: comfortable and warm, with spectacular views and location. My husband particularly enjoyed the heated stone floors!... But the highlight has to have been awakening on Christmas morning to the full moon setting over the Tetons and the sunrise just turning the tops of the mountains pink shortly after. It was magical, and an unforgettable experience...We were able to see coyote, elk, and big horn sheep every day in our drives back & forth to the house. Visiting the park in the winter after all our years of summer visits was just amazing...Enjoying the bald eagles and sighting a few moose as was an incredibly special and memorable week."
S.H. Oakland, California

"...Wow! It is exactly as you described but even more so. As soon as we walked in the door we knew it was special and we appreciate your sharing it with us. Our guests too will be delighted when they see the house but we are glad they don't arrive for several days so that we can enjoy it ourselves...We are still exploring and learning our way around all that this beautiful house and setting have to offer."
A.H. Atlanta, GA.

"...your very impressive furnishings make the house both warm and enchanting...we slept in the most panoramic bed in the world."
P.G. Vienna, Austria

S.E. Calif.
"Thank you so much for sharing your home with our family...your amazing home-spacious, beautiful, warm, inviting and that view!!!! Having all my children under one roof in your home was the best... We could not have asked for more! Watching the herds and herds of elk and other wildlife each day and in a home that echoed the natural beauty of Jackson Hole. Thank you for making it all possible... We hope to return soon"
P.H. Manchester, Ga.
"We had such a wonderful time at your house. We saw tons of wildlife, enjoyed big dinners with the whole group, and took peaceful walks. The kids had a blast and we hope to come back ... I'm passing your info on to friends."
C.P. California
"Don't even know where to begin. This was the best vacation we EVER had. The house was absolutely beautiful, comfortable and everything we could ask for. My family did not want to leave, but unfortunately we had to. The scenery was breath taking and not to mention all the wildlife we saw right in the backyard..... Coyotes, badgers, moose, sheep. pronghorn and plenty of colorful birds. My husband is not a coffee drinker but he couldn't wait to wake up in the morning and sit on the deck and drink a hot cup of coffee and enjoy the beautiful sunrise. We are back in the South sweating our butts off, wishing we were still there. We are definitely planning to come back next year. Thank you so much for having us in your lovely home and creating the BEST MEMORIES EVER. So sad to leave"
F. & S. Families
"We absolutely enjoyed your wonderful home. Our stay was perfect. We especially enjoyed our evenings out on your deck!! I got in some good long distance trail running and the boys rode their mountain bikes into town frequently. Thank you again for a perfect Wyoming vacation."
P.C. Boise, Idaho
"To wake up to such natural, majestic beauty every morning was a little piece of heaven. This was a Christmas to remember and we thank you for your part in it. I will have fun piecing together a scrapbook of pictures and memories from our Jackson Hole Christmas. Hopefully we will have the opportunity to return one day soon."
G.C., Sherborn, Mass.
"Yes, we throughly enjoyed our visit. The house has a nice flow to it and of course, the views are the best in the world. We will miss it terribly! You can get accustomed to that in a month."
S.M. Great Falls, Va.
"We really enjoyed our stay... so much that we are considering returning for Christmas again next year."
M.B. Houma, La.
"thank you! It was most memorable- better than we hoped with all the snow that week. To be able to enjoy it from your home with all the amenities was fantastic. Two moose walked by before lunch one day. Hopefully we can return."
