About Steve Affleck

Karin and I have loved having this home as a gathering place for our family of nine children and 40+ grandchildren. Reunions, Thanksgiving, Christmas, honeymoons, anniversaries... are just a few memories that have come to mean so much to us. We are retired from the automotive parts distribution business. I am a serious fly-tier and fly fisherman. Some of the finest 'Blue Ribbon Fishing' is close by. We built this home as a gathering place for our family. It can be just that for you.

Steve Affleck purchased this house in 1997

Why Steve Affleck chose Star Valley

LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION! This family retreat is in a beautiful location, close to places like Jackson Hole. The Cabin @ Star Valley is designed to accommodate large family reunions or business retreats. You may want to go to Jackson Hole to do some shopping, visit an art gallery, see a movie, ride the white water rapids of the Snake River, go to dinner, listen to cowboy poetry or a see live play. You can hike local canyons to beautiful waterfalls.

The surrounding communities are full of western culture, hosting fairs real western rodeos and more. You won't want to miss a thing while staying at The Cabin @ Star Valley.

What makes this house unique

In my humble opinion, the Cabin @ Star Valley is on the very best lot on Star Valley Ranch. The large bay windows reveal a stocked fishing pond only 100 yards from the back porch. The spectacular view of the pond, golf course, fairways, towering aspen trees and lodge-pole pines is a sight to behold. The large bay windows bring the wonders of nature's beauty almost right inside with you.

You can have access to golf carts and all-terrain vehicles to help you get around and explore the wonders of nature around you! This is the view for anyone sitting at the 18 place dining table.

The gourmet kitchen has two of everything...ovens, stove (one gas, the other electric). A dozen people can sit around the large kitchen island.

Each bedroom on the lower level has a decorative theme. The Cowboy Room, the Lighthouse room, the Lovebird's Nest, the Norwegian room and the Disney room. There are two laundry rooms; one on the main level, the other downstairs.

Amazing Cabin for a Perfect Vacation

  • 5 of 5

My siblings and I have stayed twice at this large, beautiful and conveniently located cabin in the last few years. This August, my children, their spouses and grandchildren (26 total) were able to experience the majesty of mountains, rivers, lakes and wildlife while using the cabin as our base. It is located within an hour or so drive from the Grand Teton Nation Park which is a great asset.

The arrangement of the bedrooms and the number of beds exactly matched the numbers of our individual families. We could all be seated at the kitchen table and bar as we ate, or visited or played games while grilling meals on the deck. The deep decks were constantly in use for relaxing and the driveway has ample parking. The home was better than described on the website. Steve answered our few questions promptly.

We took advantage of several Star Valley hiking trails, floated the Salt River and fished and traveled into the Park for whitewater rafting, Bar J Wranglers and horseback riding; however it was THE CABIN which created wonderful memories.

Like Karin said, people come to the Tetons, drive for the views and 'hot spots' and then realize the best memories are made at the Cabin with family - instead of 'on the road'! That is why this cabin is so precious to those who visit it!

Thank you Steve and Karin for sharing your home with us!

Great place for large family reunion!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here with 10 adults and 12 children ranging from 1 - 11. This is a large home in a beautiful setting with plenty of space for all to sleep. We loved the huge kitchen table! Since the kids are smaller, we were all able to squeeze at the table for meals. (There was seating at the island but we chose not to split the group up - though we would have if the kids were older.) Lower level rooms were comfortable at all times. The only downside: the summer sun heated up the kitchen and main floor family room, making them quite hot late afternoon and early evening when we wanted to sit and talk - especially since we were using the stove and oven at that time too. Steve and Karin provided some fans and portable a/c units. Those, along with the open windows, helped cool those areas off later on. (This will not be a problem any time except the hottest summer days.) The home is close enough to travel to the Grand Tetons and other hiking spots; one family even went to Yellowstone for a day. We would highly recommend this place. Thanks to Steve and Karin for sharing their beautiful home with us.

Perfect spot for our large family!

  • 5 of 5

Our family has stayed in the Affleck's cabin twice and had a wonderful vacation both times!

The cabin is very clean and well stocked with everything we needed. Beds are comfortable and there is plenty of room to spread out. Owners responded right away to questions and requests and couldn't have been nicer to work with. This location is on the beautiful Star Valley Ranch Resort and very convenient to all kinds of activities. Can't wait to come back!

Family Friendly

  • 5 of 5

This is the perfect cabin for a family reunion.

The lawn in front is just big enough for family Olympics, the basketball standard keeps kids busy while meals are being prepared or parents talking, and the kitchen/dining area is big enough for everyone to eat together.

The washers and dryers were an added bonus for those who had already been on the road for a while and needed some clean clothes.

The setting is beautiful, deers and squirrels roam freely. There are areas for hikes and star gazing, as well as a porch swing, for just sitting back and watching all the fun.

Best Family Reunion Location!

  • 5 of 5

We had a family reunion at Star Valley Ranch in June 2017 to celebrate my in-law's 50th Anniversary. There are 23 people in our family, ranging in age from 2 to 70, and this house was the perfect location. This house is huge! We did not feel cramped at all; there was more than enough space (kitchen space, fridge space, laundry space, bathroom space, etc) for all of us!

This house has it all: impressive views, great location, an amazing dining room that can seat your entire family, and most importantly - awesome owners who are friendly, helpful, available if needed, and who add amazing touches of hospitality that immediately make you feel at home.


- If weather and traffic are in your favor, Jackson, Teton Village, and Teton National Park (Jenny Lake, Rockefeller Preserve, Craig Thomas Discovery Center, etc) are about an hour drive.

- The house is just under a 4-hour drive to Old Faithful, making it a doable day trip if your family wants to see the famous geyser and not linger too long within the park to view other wonders.

- A favorite of our family was the hour-and-a-half drive to Lava Hot Springs, Idaho where there is a fabulous Olympic-size swimming complex with speed water slides, rock walls over the pool, high dives (including a 10-meter platform), and a great kiddie pool area. Additionally, Lava Hot Springs has natural hot springs pools and OUR FAVORITE tubing on the Portneuf River! Rent tubes and have hours of fun "miniature white water rafting" a 1/4 to 1/2 mile route down the river and run back and repeat.

- The rental house is also only a mile away from a local community swimming pool that is a very nice facility.

- Only a 20-30 minute drive away is the trailhead to hike to Intermittent Spring. It is one of only three springs that naturally turns on and off. It's a very easy hike, and GORGEOUS. We went during the time of year that there was too much water from snow melt and spring rains that the spring never ceased flowing; however, it was still beautiful and worth it!

- Be sure to check for local events. Alpine Mountain Days was going on when we were staying in Star Valley Ranch, and it was a fun little festival.

- There's an awesome little ice cream shop about 2 miles or so from the house. It was awesome! Who doesn't love ice cream?

Thanks for an amazing family reunion! We loved every minute in Star Valley Ranch!

Wonderful home. Well stocked with everything needed for a weks stay

  • 5 of 5

Had a sibling reunion for 14 people. Everyone had a great time. Lots to do in the area for everyone. Golf courses wre very good. Poor fishing in the pond--2 fish for 3 expert fishermen. Scenic raft tour down the Snake River was well worth the money. Thanks Steve and family for sharing your mountain home.
