Thistle Dew Cabin is a custom built log and timber frame home situated in the middle of 45 acres and boasts 360 degree mountain views. From the cabin porch enjoy your coffee while gazing at the backside of Grand Teton National Park. The cabin has 2 private bedrooms with queen beds (one with it's own bathroom and sitting room). Two lofts with queen beds overlooking the living room. There is a wood stove for that cozy feeling, in floor heat, huge windows to let in the afterglow from the mountains and a tower for morning coffee, evening wine or that romantic dinner. The dining room and sun room are made from custom hand carved timber frame old Vermont maple beams for a warmth that only comes from wood. The fully outfitted kitchen has everything you need; microwave, coffee maker, pots, wine glasses, dishwasher and granite counters.The front porch off of the living room is a favorite with rocking chairs and wide open views of the Grand, Middle and South Teton.
Outside there is a fire pit for roasting marshmallows and telling stories and a wood fired hot tub to soak in and look at the amazing stars. The property also has a bunkhouse for the kids and a real tipi to enjoy. The hot tub is not available from Nov. through April.
The owners live in an apartment above the garage on the property totally separate from the cabin. The hot tub, sauna, and fire pit are for use by cabin guests exclusively.
