Things to Do in Star Valley:
Hike to the world's largest cold water geyser. This beautiful waterfall turns on and off every few minutes. This is close, beautiful and easy hike.
Golf on the beautiful golf course designed by Johnny Miller on the highway south of Afton.
There is great fishing in Star Valley! There are sporting goods stores on Main Street that can sell you a license and tell you where the fish are biting and what kind of flies or bait to use.
Mountain biking, tubing on the Salt River, and kayaking are popular.
National Forest picnic sites are available up Swift Creek Canyon and at Allred Flat. Swift Creek Park in town also has picnic facilities.
The mountain pass at the south end of the valley has great hiking in the summer and snowmobiling and cross-country skiing trails in the winter. You can even get a permit to cut your own Christmas tree in the National Forest on top of the mountain pass.
Great skiing just 70 miles north in Jackson.
Between Afton and Jackson, the Snake River provides world-class rapids for rafting or canoeing.
Yellowstone National Park is 125 miles north. Star Valley makes a great base for exploring the park away from the crowds.

Year Purchased: 1960
About the owner: I grew up in this beautiful home, and we were thrilled to be able to purchase it from the family trust after our parents passed away. We love spending time here with our family whenever we can get away.
Why the Owner Chose Afton, WY, USA:
My parents, a pharmacist and a nurse, built this beautiful home in 1960. It has many original and charming features, including a cozy fireplace and built-in cabinetry in each room. Our family has made cherished memories here and we know your family will too!
The Unique Benefits at this House:
This spacious home has plenty of room to spread out and relax. In the winter, you will enjoy watching your own private herd of deer! One renter wrote, 'We stayed at Star of the Valley for a week last summer. The home was so welcoming. It was beautifully furnished and comfortable. Our favorite thing was the portable fire pit. Each evening we talked and roasted marshmallows and had the camp fire feeling without the camping. There were games to play, movies to watch, and a big grassy backyard to play croquet in. Our little boys liked the play tent and the teenagers loved the ping pong table. We all enjoyed eating our meals outside on the patio. We loved singing around the piano in the living room. With an early start, the home was close enough to visit Jackson Hole and return in the evening.We also enjoyed the hike to the intermittent spring right in Afton. It was very lush and cool. Our family can't wait to stay there again. We had such a great time!' Elizabeth Guertler, Sandy, UT
