About the property

Cabin, 1 Bedroom, 2 Baths (Sleeps 2 adults)

This is the classic log cabin (with new kitchen!) you've been looking for. Sleeps 2 adults in one queen bed, and one child could sleep on sofa. Located in Driggs, Idaho - 45 miles from Jackson Hole and 97 miles from Yellowstone. Named by Men's Journal 'the best small town in America'. We also have 'Horseshoe' Cabin next door - 3 bedroom plus loft - see VRBO #19652.

Perfect for family vacations, singles and couples get-away, artist/writer retreat, honeymoons, bird watching, hiking, kayaking, skiing, fishing, and just enjoying the fresh air.

Colter Cabin is located on 7 acres surrounded by ranches and aspen trees. Views of Grand Targhee ski area and Grand Tetons from the front deck. 25 minute drive to Grand Targhee for great powder skiing and 65 minute drive over the pass to ski in Jackson Hole. Cross-country ski and snowshoe out the front door or on many groomed trails close by.

Great kayaking on the Teton and Snake Rivers and mountain biking in the Big Hole Mountains. Fly-fishing at Leigh Creek, Teton River and Henry's Fork. Hiking out your door in the Jedediah Smith Wilderness. Beautiful Leigh Creek within walking distance. Horseback riding and golf available 5 min. away. Darling town of Driggs with cute restaurants and shops is a 7 mile drive.

About Ginger Howard

We bought this cabin as a vacation get away for family and friends. Since then we have had the opportunity to live here full time! Our family uses the cabins often, so the kitchens are well equipped and the beds are comfy. We love to hike and kayak and cook dinners for the family. We have two grown children who live in San Francisco and Oakland.

Ginger Howard purchased this cabin in 2001

Why Ginger Howard chose Tetonia

This area of Idaho, Wyoming and Montana is just gorgeous. There are so many beautiful areas to visit - mountains, waterfalls, rivers, fields of wildflowers, throughout the summer, great snow all winter - you will want to be outdoors every day. Late spring is the best time to see the animals with their new offspring, and October brings the spectacular golden 'quaking' leaves on the aspen trees.

What makes this cabin unique

Quiet, beautiful trees in all seasons, overlooks 2000 acre ranch, rolling hills, yet 7 minute drive to tiny cute town with amazing big grocery, health foods, Austrian pastries at Pendls, more. Hiking trails surround us.

Wonderful cabin feel with high tech capability

  • 5 of 5

The Colter Cabin makes you feel like you've stepped back in time while you surf the internet on the extremely fast Wi-Fi or watch Apple TV on the large HD television.

The hosts are friendly, prompt, and provide many informational resources at the cabin to learn about and enjoy the area.

We truly enjoyed our stay!

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Colter Cabin. It a wonderful, comfortable, classic log cabin with all the amenities of home. The area is peaceful and beautiful. I highly recommend the Colter Cabin for your holiday stay in Teton Valley or the Grand Teton National Park!

Isolation Therapy :)

Peaceful perfection just about sums it up. We loved coffee on the upper deck every morning and having a quiet comfortable place to relax after all of our adventures. We marveled at the construction of the cabin and all of the attention to detail.

Owner's Response: So nice to hear you enjoyed the cabin. We just hired the best crew from Jackson to rethink and seal all the big handhewn logs. And added a nice coat of gloss. We treat the cabin like a finely made wood jewel box! Sometimes from the upper deck you can see all the way to Sun Valley...

We stayed 5 different places over two weeks on our trip to Glacier, Yellowstone & the Tetons. This was our all around favorite. Our teenage boys loved this leg of the trip - which is surprising because it was the most relaxing. The mountains were fogged in the entire time we were there - but we loved warm nights in the cabin playing darts and cooking meals (what an amazing kitchen!!). I ordered a new fridge shortly after we came home like the one in that kitchen! Just a beautiful place. Our only negative is that we didn't stay longer!
