Owner purchased this House in 2009
Why Owner chose Wilson
The property was acquired due to the fantastic view of the valley and the mountains, as well as the vissibility of the 460 acre Fish Creek Ranch that provides the picturesque view available from the property. This ranch has been placed in a perpetual conservation easement so there will never be any further development in the valley below.
What makes this House unique
The town of Wilson is 5 minutes away, the Jackson Hole Ski Resort and the town of Jackson are both 15 a minutes drive away. The south entrance to Teton National Park is 20 minutes away and the south entrance to Yellowstone National Park is 55 miles from the house. Major airlines fly into Jackson Hole which is a 20 minute drive from the house and Idaho Falls, which is a 90 minute drive from the house.

Amazing views and gorgeous home
We stayed here to celebrate my husband's 40th birthday with family and a couple friends and to check off one of the places to visit on his bucket list. It fit all of us comfortably and each had our own bathroom. We had a 3 year old and 10 month old with us who also enjoyed the stay. The views of the mountains were incredible and easy rides to Grand Targhee and Jackson Hole resorts. Outside of the busy ski town with the feel of a quiet getaway. We saw a moose and her calf 2 days in a row, and a fox hunting early morning. Highly recommend staying in this lovely home for a large family and/or with friends.
Thanks for your review. Everyone always loves seeing all of the wildlife around the property.
Amazing property! We definitely will come back!
We are a group of friends who get together for an annual ski trip in a different city each year. We always rent through VRBO and believed we had a clear expectation for the house. That said, this house in Wilson set a new standard for the houses we rent. The photo of the house does not do it justice. We were absolute surprised at how beauty the house is. It is the perfect balance of large rooms, intimate atmosphere, with a magnificent view of the valley. Based on this beautiful location, don’t expect great WIFI connectivity. We made great use of the kitchen, BBQ, and hot tub. It was conveniently located 15 minutes from the town of Jackson as well as skiing in Jackson Hole. The entire vacation exceeded our greatest expectations including the day we took off from skiing to spend a day in nature snowmobiling. We definitely will come back!
A perfect spot for a week with our adult children and spouses. Centrally located for anything you want to do. A beautiful home with more than enough room to spread out, relax and enjoy Jackson Hole.
Beautiful house and convenient to area to get around.
Very nice home.
This was an amazing property with lots of space for our family of ten.
Previous reviews mentioning that the pictures and description in the listing did not do this rental justice were absolutely true. Having private bathrooms for each bedroom was unusual and appreciated. The outdoor patios were great for relaxing, enjoying the views, soaking in the hot tub, and BBQ's. The dining room table Really did fit our family of 10 comfortably. This was truly a wonderful place to celebrate our many special occasions and create new and lasting memories.
I do wish that our local caretaker had been available for questions before the last day of our stay. Perhaps a notebook of some sort answering frequently asked questions could be made available. That being said, our stay was delightful and we hope to return often.
Many thanks to the property owners for sharing their beautiful home with us. The Hirst family from Cache Valley, Utah
Beautiful setting to take in the beauty of Jackson Hole! The house is amazing and fit our family of ten perfectly! This is our third visit to this house and we've loved every minute of it! This year we were welcomed by a mama Moose and her baby that were only steps away from our front door. This house is full of amenities and beautiful decor! Can't wait to go back!
Thanks for your repeat visit. Glad the moose family provided greetings as baby continues to be curious about the house.
