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

About marc baxis
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
marc baxis purchased this Lodge in 2000
Why marc baxis chose Irwin
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....
What makes this Lodge unique
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

Snake River Lodge
We had a wonderful week with our daughter's family at Marc & Linda's home. It is a beautiful home--very conducive to a large family gathering! We were not able to enjoy the river as there had been unusually high water levels and the gates to the dam were open causing dangerously swift current. But there were numerous other sight-seeing treks that we wanted to do, so no problem. All in all a great week-- the kids had a wonderful time!
Wonderful Secluded Lodge
We rented the lodge as part of a family reunion and it was a great place for us to relax and entertain. We were fortunate to meet the owner (he just happened to be onsite when we arrived) and he was very responsive to our needs. If you need a quiet, secluded and wonderfully designed retreat in Swan Valley, this is a good choice!
Great location on the Snake River!
Lovely property. Owner was very accommodating. Next time we are staying longer!
Great home by the snake river!
This was a very nice home to base our daily trips out of to Jackson, Yellowstone and Genny Lake.
It was clean, inviting, charming and perfect for our group in all ways.
It is open concept and rooms are comfortable. Marc was very easy to work with and we will be referring our friends here as well.
Great place to have a family reunion!
Thank you Marc for sharing your beautiful Lodge with us!
It was a great place to host our family reunion of 10 adults! We had a lot of room without feeling on top of each other. The huge deck was a hit for all evening meals and star gazing.
There are numerous outdoor activities close by to choose from or if you prefer to do nothing, relaxing by the river in a hammock with a book can not be beat.
Marc is a great a host. He quickly responds to any inquiries a guest may have and makes you feel very welcome.
If our group is ever back in this area, we will be sure to stay here again.
A lot of fun and beautiful memories were made here!
Thank you again, Marc!
Thanx Jennifer you are welcome guest at the lodge anytime ....and I really appreciate your taking care the lodge ....you were an excellent steward!!
Fantastic Corporate Outing location
With our group of individuals, all committed to fishing one of the finest rivers in the PNW, this property proved to be ideal. Easy access to the river and the boat launches and take outs, our days were efficient and productive. Relaxation and comfort awaited us at the days end with all amenities necessary to recharge for the next day. Property offered ample parking (even with drift boats), home offered space for all individuals and, most of all, a serene environment for relaxation and achieving a level of comfort. I will need to return to explore the hiking, Jackson and the other surrounding attractions. Owner was exceptional in answering questions with quick response and accurate information. I look forward to returning to this outstanding home and location.
Owner will assist in setting up guided fishing trips or horseback trips into the local mountains
