About the Property

House, 5 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 4 Baths, (Sleeps 8-10)

This Lodge was built by Master craftsman Jay Thornley. It was built from the wood of an 100 year old factory. This lumber was sent to a mill and refinished to create this one of a kind property. It is a magical place built to the highest standards.It boasts 3000 sq.feet of indoor living with a 1000sq ft deck. There is a covered porch and balcony off the Master bedroom. Huge great room ,wonderful kitchen with porcelain farm sink , copper fixtures , saltillo tile floor,thermador range. Custom built bar with vintage saddle stools.You'll marvel over the 9' wood plank floors in the great room and all the bedrooms. All the woodwork has the patina of a lodge from the era of the famed Adirondack Lodges.That coupled with all the modern day comforts you would expect. It has 3 beautiful rock fireplaces ( wood burning )to create just the right ambiance.


But most importantly this lodge sits on the Snake River.With 800 feet of river frontage on 12 beautiful acres.It is just over the Teton Pass from Jackson Hole. All rooms view the river and the Majestic MT. Baldy. It is one of the most precious fisheries in the world. Home to the native cutthroat, lunker german browns , and acrobatic rainbows. If you are a fly fisherman this is truly nirvana. Launch a boat from our gently slopping banks or have a river guide pick you up right outside. Any number of world class guides from the area can assist you on a fishing trip. Of course this area is also home of the famed South Fork Lodge ( owned by Mark Rockefeller). And if fishing is not your thing than maybe being able to almost reach up and touch the stars of our Milky way galaxy might be the stimulation you desire. Whatever it is you will remember this place

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2000

About the owner: I am avid fly fisherman with a young family. We have enjoyed many special times with extended family at the Lodge. Where bonding and memories were experienced that will never be forgotten

Why the Owner Chose Swan Valley, ID, USA:
I had this custom lodge built in 2000. I bought the property in 1990 back when larger parcels were still available on the Snake River in Swan Valley. So it is one of the few larger sites on the River...I was actually headed to explore Montana and Wyoming by myself with my dog. It was the end of the day and I was tired from driving...as I descended into a small valley town high in the mountains I was awestruck by a beautiful sunset and decided I would stay at the next place I came to ...It was the Southfork Lodge then owned By Spence and Linda Warner. Basically a rustic but highly acclaimed destination for the most serious fly fisherman...I woke after spending a great evening with the guides and Spence and Linda and grabbed my rod and waded the banks and had an incredible fishing experience...witnessing Bald Eagles, Ospreys and a Moose...after coming back to the Lodge I inquired to Spence if there were any riverfront parcels for sale...he sent me on a journey to the backside of the River where I found a 12 acre parcel that suited me...I purchased it before I left for home ...and there you have the abbreviated version....

The Unique Benefits at this House:
I love the 3 wood burning fireplaces....nothing creates the warmth of crackling fires. The 6 foot tub in the Master Bedroom and french doors that open to the private deck that overlooks the River and Valley has been the setting for many wildlife sightings
