About the Property

Cabin, Studio + Convertible bed(s), 1.5 Baths, (Sleeps 2-4)

Welcome to our cabin retreat located at the base of Caribou Mountain adjacent to both the Caribou National Forest and the Grays Lake National Wildlife refuge in Southeastern Idaho. We sit on approximately 80 acres in the midst of a recreational wonderland.

There are miles and miles of forest trails to hike, bike, cross country ski, snowshoe, snowmobile, ATV or horseback ride right from our front door. You can be fishing premier trout streams and mountain lakes within minutes, including the South Fork of the Snake River, Blackfoot River and Reservoir, Salt River, Grays River and our home water Tincup Creek. The Grays Lake National Wildlife Refuge is home to many species of wildlife and a birders haven. We often have resident populations of moose, deer, elk and sand hill cranes right on our property. This is a trophy hunting area for all big game species. Arrangements can be made with local outfitters and guides for both hunting and fishing.

Most of all we offer tranquil seclusion. Enjoy some downtime and the beautiful scenery and wildlife. The closest towns with facilities are 30-40 miles away. Jackson Hole, Wyoming is about 70 miles and a great day trip. Your accommodations are self sufficient and luxurious. The guest quarters are not in the main cabin but occupy the upper floor of an adjacent log sided building. The accommodations feature an open floor plan of approximately 1000 square feet. There is a king size bed, double sofa sleeper, hardwood floors, eat- in kitchen, full bath, gas fireplace and laundry facilities. Even though we are secluded you will enjoy high speed internet, telephone service, satellite television, shared use of the spa, barbecue, outdoor campfire and much more.

We welcome guests with horses and can arrange boarding for up to four horses. We have a three-stall barn and three adjacent outdoor pens. Additionally we have approximately 10 acres fenced with horse-safe Centaur fencing. We also have facilities for trailers and RV’s with one full hook-up. An adjacent ranch has additional RV facilities.

Your hosts, Cheryl and Chuck Greenhawt, or our neighbors Brian and Alicia Muir can assist you in planning your visit. We are always pleased to share our knowledge of the area and can often be persuaded to ride or fish with our guests.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1996

Why the Owner Chose Wayan, ID, USA:
In the mid nineties we were searching for property to someday retire to and spend our summers horseback riding and fishing. We wanted more than just a couple of acres in subdivision. We found this property that fulfilled all of our dreams. 80 acres adjacent to national forest riding tails and many streams and lakes nearby to fish. The isolation and serenity were welcome but we were persuaded to build a cabin big enough to welcome lots of family and friends. In 2007 we finished building our dream retreat and now split our time between our cabin, travelling and our other home in Salt Lake City. .

The Unique Benefits at this Studio:
There aren't many places where you can truly enjoy 360 degree views of breathtaking scenery. We enjoy simply sitting on the back porch to enjoy the views and watch the wildlife.
