About the property

House, 5 Bedrooms, 3.5 Baths, (Sleeps 9)

This House was lovingly built in 1998. It overlooks the historic Trail Creek Ranch, which is a property that is protected by the Jackson Hole Land Trust and will always have the lush hay meadows, willow banked Trail Creek and beautiful old growth timber. And this house has one of the few incredible views of this little slice of heaven.

The Main House has four bedrooms, beds for 7 guests. The Living room, fully equipped modern kitchen and dining are all one open floor plan with a vaulted ceiling, two bedrooms and 1.5 baths on the first floor. The Master bedroom/bath and small fourth bedroom are upstairs. The master bedroom has a queen bed, and a very special reading/napping nook surrounded by windows, with stellar views. The master bath has dual sinks and double shower with dual heads.

The washer and dryer are on the first floor. A mudroom with lots of room for all the gear, and the entry, both with fossil stone floors.

There is a six person hot tub in the yard for soaking after a day of activity. And, of course there is wifi and one television with direct tv satellite.

The Guest Apartment over the garage is a studio with a queen bed, small kitchenette, full bath, wifi and satellite TV. A blow up mattress is also available. It is set up to be completely independent. It also has beautiful views of the mountains all around.

There is a small deck and a picnic table outside on the lawn for outdoor picnics and a seasonal stream that flows happily through the property. It is quiet and peaceful. We are surrounded by lush greenery and wildflowers.

Moose, elk, ducks, hawks, fox, coyote, and an occasional bear can all be seen out your window, and in the ranch field below.

This is a one of a kind property that is stunning to all who come. The location paired with its natural beauty make this the perfect spot to base your vacation in Jackson Hole.

The house is on The Old Pass Road, the entry to a very popular recreational area for hikers and bikers, and skiers. You can walk the road every day and it never gets old – gazing down on grazing horses, views and wildlife everywhere. It looks out to the Gros Ventre Range and the infamous Sleeping Indian. The sights are amazing!

The bike path to Wilson begins at the end of our road and the hiking out our back door is great. There are also world class mountain bike trails that are all around us.

We are three minutes from our little town of Wilson, where there is Hungry Jacks General Store, the Post Office, Pearl Street Bagel, Nora’s Fish Creek Inn and more. We are 10-12 minutes from the town of Jackson and Teton Village (ski resort). Grand Teton National Park southernmost entrance is 12 minutes from our door.

A winter wonderland in the winter months...we are 12 minutes from Jackson Hole Mountain Resort, 50 minutes to Grand Targhee Resort and backcountry skiing a quick 10 minute drive up Teton Pass. There is cross country skiing everywhere and a 15K nordic track on the ranch across the road.

About Alexandra Menolascino

Mike and I have been in the valley for over 25 years and love it for all there is to offer. We are bringing up our four boys in this incredible place! In the summer, we move to Trail Creek Ranch, that I manage, so I can be on the property and the boys can get a taste of real ranch life. We love our home and built it with special care, and wish to share it in the summer with people who love adventure and wish to experience all that Jackson Hole has to offer.

Alexandra Menolascino purchased this house in 1998

Why Alexandra Menolascino chose Wilson

This property is private, unique, loved, just like home. The location is incredibly convenient. You can bypass the busy town of Jackson and busy summer roads, and get to Grand Teton National Park via the back road - Moose Wilson Road.

What makes this house unique

Where do I begin? The views from the house are breathtaking. The wildlife around. The trails out the back door. The biking all around - trails or roads. The quiet. Wilson and the community. Nora's Fish Creek Inn for breakfast, lunch or dinner, Pearl Street Bagel-the everything bagel with herb cream cheese, Chippy's Restaurant, The Stagecoach Bar - a Sunday night must do - music and dancing with the locals, Hungry Jacks, the Lemonade stands...I can go on and on. And that's just WIlson. Grand Teton National Park, the hiking and majesty. Climbing, biking through the Park.

Terrific home for a full experience in the Tetons

  • 5 of 5

The owner, Alex Menolascino, was very responsive and welcoming to us and our grandchildren. The house offers privacy and comfort with a yard full of visiting animals, including raccoons, deer, foxes and a moose! It is walking distance to multiple trail-heads into the southern end of the Tetons and the Teton Pass into Idaho. There was no problem getting into Jackson for dinner or for grocery shopping. We made many memories and would certainly consider returning if the opportunity allows. It would be delightful to see what winter would be like!

This property is great! It was very clean and was exactly as described!

  • 5 of 5

We had 8 people staying in the house (and guest house) and it was perfect! We had plenty of space to gather together or be alone. The hot tub and fire pit were great options! This place was so clean and was exactly as it was described. We will definitely go back and highly recommend this place!!

Great rental!

  • 5 of 5

Stayed here with extended family for son's wedding. Liked the privacy and location. House was well laid out, providing a variety of options for those staying there. Loved the master suite with bathroom mirrors which took 20 lbs off my appearance. Lol. House was modern, clean and lent itself to various nice areas to socialize. Loved the ironed sheets. Host was easy to work with.
