Bright Star Ranch is a big, traditional, family-style house set on the broad valley floor like a ship at sea. Long porches, a deck and many windows survey twelve rolling acres of private pasture and rangeland and the great, encircling ring of mountains. Grasslands give way to sage-covered buttes; big old trees sigh in the breeze, and the vast dome of sky plays its constantly changing show of light, clouds and stars above.

Inside, Bright Star has an open-arms feeling of welcome and authenticity; rooms are spacious, simple and brimming with sun. The living room is a high-ceilinged space, centered on a river rock hearth built of stones worn soft and velvety by millennia of rushing water. Two plush couches face each other before the fire, and windows are filled top to bottom with a glorious panorama of fields, mountains and sky. The kitchen is airy and open, with a wide, stone-topped center island and an induction range; a round breakfast table stands in one windowed corner, with built-in upholstered benches perfect for long, lazy mornings spent talking and gazing out at the view. The dining room is open to the kitchen; the polished table can seat eight, and three more may sit at the bar if extra space is needed.

The master bedroom is on Bright Star’s main floor, at the very heart of this wonderful Jackson Hole vacation home - private, quiet, carpeted and spacious. Huge picture windows on three sides frame the enormous expanse of the valley outside and the jagged, majestic mountains. A door opens to the master’s private wood deck. The king size bed looks out to the staggering view, and to a big flat screen television as well. In the sumptuous master bath, double sinks bracket a vanity, and a piano stool set before the mirror suggests that beauty is an art, too. A claw-foot soaking tub stands in a windowed alcove; an upholstered armchair and ottoman wait beside the walk-in shower.

Bright Star has three sunny guest rooms on the upper level, and an office loft as well - where a long desk offers a peaceful, light-filled spot to work, privy to the goings-on below and yet set apart.

The first guest bedroom is a handsome space, with the rich fabrics and warm wood tones of a private club. A queen bed is flanked by matching side tables and fringed reading lamps; a table for two stands beneath a picture window and can serve as desk or quiet dining space. The en suite bath is both rustic and luxurious. A sink, hand-painted with fish and fishing ties, sits in a tiled vanity with cupboard handles cast in the shape of trout. A twig-framed mirror hangs above.

The second guest bedroom is simple and pleasing: creamy walls, carpeting, a full-size, leather-upholstered bed and a long picture window bracketed by two smaller ones that may be opened to the sage-scented mountain breeze.

On the far side of the office landing, the third guest bedroom is a kids’ kingdom. A king bed, a twin and a trundle can sleep four children in great comfort, with cheery yellow walls, room to unpack and open floor space for play. A long, cushioned window seat is set temptingly beside a well-stocked bookshelf. This bedroom has a private bath with two sinks, a bath and shower combination and a summery mural of foxgloves and wisteria twining up the walls.

Much of life is lived out on Bright Star’s back porch, where the stupendous panorama summons an I-can’t-believe-I’m-here feeling every time you step outside. Big, comfortable chairs are pulled up around a granite-rimmed fire pit, where you can roast local sausages, vegetables or perfect your own s’mores. The family picnic table waits beside a gas grill. A long bench wraps around the porch; game day front row seating for Frisbee, football or just watching the kids play tag. In the winter, set out on cross-country skis or snowshoes from the porch and go for miles. World-class ski slopes and the small, sophisticated city of Jackson are both just a short drive from Bright Star Ranch - a marvelous home in a marvelous setting.

Reviewer Comments:

This home, land and views were beautiful! The beds were very comfortable and the home was very clean. Our family enjoyed romping in the snow in the large yard and spending our Christmas holiday there! We loved the master suite on the main floor! The laundry room with full size new washer and dryer was an extra plus. The only things I would suggest would be to have a better equipped kitchen with sufficient casserole dishes, cookie sheets, etc. and replace some of the older supplies and update living room furniture. But, overall, we had a great experience with the rental company and had a fabulous time at the home. The home is also in a good location; close to Jackson, but far enough away to feel like we were in the open WY landscape.

Reviewer Comments:

Jackson Hole is a fantastic place to go for both skiing and relaxing in a quaint town with lots of neat shops and restaurants. The house we rented (Star Gazer) for our family was very nice; lots of natural woods and stone, and nicely decorated for the area. The scenery was breathtaking. We had a total of 10 people staying, with plenty of room. The kitchen is well appointed with everything needed, and the wifi, etc., all worked well. We did have some issues while we were there that were not resolved; the steam shower did not work (and without a hot tub, that was quite disappointing, especially after a day on the slopes), and the heating system in the basement was stuck in heat mode and was unbearably hot. When we were there, it got down to 25 below; the basement issue left us no choice to open the windows to let cold air in to adjust the temperature. Am sure the owners / management company will do what is needed to fix the issues; it was disappointing they did not do so while we were there. With all of that said, if I were taking my family back to Jackson Hole for another trip, would definitely consider this rental again.
