Overview

About the property

2 bed, 2.5 bath, sleeps 6

Beautiful home on a hill with panoramic mountain views and easy access to Caribou-Targhee National Forest, 80 minutes to Grand Teton National Park and 2 hours from West Yellowstone. Hiking, mountain biking, xc skiing and snowshoeing right from the cabin and blue-ribbon fly fishing and world-class skiing within 20 minutes.

Multiple tall windows and a elevated wrap-around deck bring the natural beauty of the outside in. You’ll enjoy curling up on a window seat to read a book, enjoy the sunset or just watch the snow fall. After a long day out skiing or hiking you can relax on a new soft leather love seat or lie on a bear rug and watch the fire.

The upstairs bedroom is a stargazer’s paradise. We call it the “Eagle’s Nest.” You’ll enjoy watching for shooting stars and identifying the constellations before dozing off for one of the best night’s sleep you’ve ever had on a temPurpedic mattress. Wake up early enough and you can watch the sun rising over the Grand Teton from bed.

Located at the base of the Tetons, and bordering a national forest, the area attracts an abundance of wildlife including moose, deer, foxes and many types of birds including great gray owls, bald eagles and sage grouse.

This is a three-level home with sleeping on the top and ground floors and an office/entertainment room, kitchen and living room on the main floor. Bedrooms are separated by the main floor offering privacy. The large office/entertainment room includes a desk, games, books, Internet access and Teton views. The downstairs bedroom opens to a garden and patio, with a hammock for the lazy days of summer.

This is the perfect summer or winter retreat for active couples, families or the business or creative person seeking a remote office and a peaceful, inspirational setting surrounded by nature.

About Steve Gramme

We split our time between Tetonia and California. We enjoy the balance of mountain living and time by the ocean.

Steve Gramme purchased this house in 2013

Why Steve Gramme chose Tetonia

We've been traveling to Teton Valley a few times a year for the last decade because we love the winter and summer outdoor activities it provides; especially cross country skiing, snow shoeing, hiking, mountain biking, kayaking and fly fishing. Our property is near two of our favorite national parks: Grand Teton and Yellowstone, and we love to visit them frequently.

What makes this house unique

Our home has fantastic views of the Teton mountain range, plenty of wildlife viewing and is located on a private 3-acre aspen-wooded lot. It is only 10 years old and is very well constructed and maintained.

Spectacular vacation home in Tetonia!

  • 5 of 5

We spent three nights in Steve & Susan's home in September. It's in a remote location but definitely worth the drive. It is a very modern, well appointed home with all the amenities one could hope for. Steve texted us upon our arrival to make sure all was well. He also pointed out that there was local craft beer in the refrigerator to welcome us! Steve & Susan's attention to the small details and hospitality made this a very welcoming place to stay.

In a word, the home is beautiful. Furnishings are modern and there is a large, comfortable window seat which is perfect for reading books or enjoying the mountain view. The kitchen is very well equipped and stocked with anything you might need. There is a wraparound deck with outstanding views of the Tetons. Overall, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay here and would love to come back. Thank you Steve & Susan for making this a memorable vacation!

Very nice property. Will visit again.

  • 5 of 5

The property was very nice. It was clean and had a beautiful interior too (not shown in the pictures). The house is close to hundreds of hiking trails. My family initially planned to visit Grand Teton National Park for hiking but decided to hike other trails near the property as we're arriving the house. While driving from Yellowstone to Tetonia through Grand Teton, we found the view around Tetonia was as beautiful as what we saw in Grand Teton. Not only Steve was really kind and accessible during our stay, but he was very helpful providing us suggestions on scenic hiking trails near the property based on our trip schedule. Thanks to Steve, we saved at least 2 hours on travel time each day and enjoyed more hiking time. Plus, hiking to the Table Mountain, which we took as Steve recommended, is a must if you visit this property. It's tough, but the view from the top is breathtaking.

Owner's Response: Thanks for the great review Jeeyeon! We are glad you and your family enjoyed our place and the Teton Valley. There are so many things to do in our valley that are very unique to the area like hiking, biking, fly fishing in the summer and cross country and alpine skiing or snow shoeing in the Winter. Table mountain is definitely a challenge, but well worth it as you know. There are many more less traveled hikes on the Idaho side that give you stunning views of the Tetons. We look forward to seeing you again soon.

Private with beautiful mountain views

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed here for three nights and wish we booked it for longer. It was a great spot as we visited the Grand Teton National Park. We spent a few relaxing hours kayaking down the Tetonia River and saw a handful of moose on the riverbank and did a 10 mile hike in the park. The house has everything you need for a perfect retreat and the area was beautiful in July. Don't pass this house up! If I had to give any thoughts on what would improve the home, I would suggest a fan as the nights were a bit warm. We tried to fall asleep upstairs as the view is so nice with the stars and mountains but had to move to the basement to sleep where it was cooler. The only shower is in the basement and it is small but with what the rest the house had to offer, I didn't mind running up and down the three flights for a shower.

Owner's Response: We are glad you enjoyed your stay at our cabin Katie! Thanks for the great review thanks for the tips regarding the fan. We will get a fan in the house as soon as we get there. It is very rare that it hits 90 degrees during the day in Teton Valley and when it does, we open all the windows at night to let the cool air in and close all the windows in the morning before it heats up. It usually dips to 40-50 degrees at night, so natural air conditioning usually works. You will find some European style features in the cabin, such as the bathtub only in the master bathroom which we mostly use instead of taking a shower. I might convert this to a bathtub shower sometime in the future since some people prefer a shower instead of a bath. We are glad that you enjoyed your stay and hope to see you again soon!

Really Love the house

  • 5 of 5

It's REALLY like a home away from home. Thank you so much for providing such wonderful place for our family. Very quick, like living in the forest. The house has everything we can think of. Steve is super helpful to answer all our questions. Wonderful experience. I will definitely come back if we visit the area again.

Perfect spot for our trip!

  • 5 of 5

Our family greatly enjoyed this unique location and would definitely rent this again if we are going back to the area. We will recommend it to our family and friends. The views were incredible and the privacy remarkable - but we were still close enough to where we needed to be. Loved the view of the Grand Tetons and close to what we needed but far enough away for privacy.

Everyone in our family loved this place and were sad we had to leave.

Nice house in beautiful setting.

  • 4 of 5

We stayed 5 nights in Dec. Picked this place mainly for its proximity to Grand Targhee. The location is very peaceful and the views are incredible. The house was immaculate and well appointed with cookware, utensils, bedding, games, books, and movies. Steve does a fantastic job. He was very responsive and even checked in with us to see if we arrived ok or had questions. If I could give 4 1/2 stars I would. It was almost excellent, but there were a couple of things that could be improved. The master bedroom upstairs has amazing views and a nice bathroom, but the bed is tucked in a nook so you can only climb in and out at the foot of the bed. We decided it would be better to let our teenage son use the master and we took the downstairs room. The downstairs has a tiny bathroom, and the utility room next door can be noisy when running the washer or dryer. There was also a plastic matress liner that made me sweat even though we kept the room at 60 degrees. The bedroom windows don't all have window treatments, so sleeping late may be hard for some. None of these were major issues, and and we really enjoyed the place. I don't want to discourage anyone from renting this house. It was a great value. With a couple of minor changes it could be perfect.
