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 Ranch

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.

A wonderful summer family getaway!!

  • 5 of 5

We are a family of 11 ranging in age from 4 to 65. The house was a perfect fit for all ages. This beautiful home was very well stocked with high quality linens, kitchen ware, and appliances. We had everything necessary to cook all our meals at the house for a full week. The owners met us on site when we arrived to provide a complete overview of the home and were back again when we departed. They were very generous to open their entire home to our family and all of the little extras were sincerely appreciated; like the play kitchen and all the fake food for the little ones, the games, the golf carts, movies, stuffed animals, piano, etc. The location was fantastic to Afton, Jackson Hole, Tetons, etc. We were within 1 hour of world class hiking, rafting, biking, swimming, etc. The community the home is located in was very well kept with nice paved roads and the amenities were incredible. We golfed, swam, played tennis, went running, watched wildlife and it was all just outside the front door of this beautiful home. Our entire family felt at home here and would absolutely love to return.

Fabulous accommodations for our large family reunion!!

  • 5 of 5

We had a family reunion with 25 people and this cabin was perfect for our large group! The cabin is in a pristine location, surrounded by beautiful aspens and views that are serene. The cabin itself is very clean, comfortable and well stocked for large groups. There was ample space for sleeping and cooking meals for a large crowd. The wrap around deck was perfect for sitting at the picnic tables to eat meals and the dining table indoors was great as well because it accommodates so many people. The kitchen is very well stocked and there are tons of bath towels which is nice when you’ve got a large group. Our family truly enjoyed our stay and we were more than comfortable! This is definitely a place we would to return to!

The home is beautiful and verywell kpt, we had everything we needed for our stay. Beautiful 'veiws !

  • 5 of 5

We had such a wonderful time and have such great memories. Steve and Karin were so helpful and answered all our questions and gave us some great ideas of things to do. The "cabin" is beautiful, everything we needed was provided other than the food. There are so many things to do right there, fishing, swimming, golfing, and we had some pretty fun games of basketball! I would highly recommend this as a vacation destination for any large group. We planned this family trip for two years, I can honestly say it was everything I had hoped for. Thank you Steve and Karin for letting us use your beautiful home for our vacation, we have such wonderful memories and it is so much fun to hear the grandkids talk about what a fun time they had.

Made a wonderful memory to last a lifetime!

  • 5 of 5

First of all, Steve and Karin are such welcoming, helpful, and easy to like people you could ever meet. Everyone had fun picking their room and the grandsons were delighted when they realized they didn't have to sleep in the same bedroom with their sisters! We celebrated a birthday and were all able to be around the table which we have never done. Spent many evenings sitting on the porch with guitar and singing while kids played basketball with Grandpa on the driveway. But by far the highlight was staying up super late one night to lay back and see the stars! It was like nothing the kids had ever seen before. I know they will never forget all the wonderful moments we spent at this beautiful cabin!

Perfect for our family of 8 with plenty of room and space for more! Beautiful views and location!

  • 5 of 5

The owners, Steve and Karin, are the sweetest and very accommodating. We decided to take our 6 x "kids" ages: 14-22 out of the Las Vegas desert for Spring Break to visit friends in Alpine, Wyoming. This property was close to our friends, but also within proximity to all the beautiful places we visited while on this trip: Jackson Hole, Grand Teton, National Wildlife Art Museum, Elk Refuge, Afton, Snake River and more! Prior to our arrival, the owners made sure to provide us a very thorough walk-through of the house along with a bonus list of Things to Do while staying in town. Since we were arriving late in the evening, Steve and Karin were more than happy to show our friends the property and fortunately we were able to meet the owners upon our departure. Our usually picky teenagers were happy with the choices in rooms and beds along with the WiFi service which turns out we didn't really need because we spent so much time playing outside in the snow during the day and plenty of board games, puzzles, books and movies are provided in the house for your family's enjoyment. They even have a piano and organ for family enjoyment... like dueling pianos! We had so much fun and are already planning a return visit in the near future. I secretly want to keep this property quiet so that when we do return, it will be available... however, Steve and Karin are the greatest so I want everyone to know that if you are visiting this area - this is where you want to stay! So spacious, clean, pristine, great value and most accommodating owners. What more could you ask for? In our case, all we wanted was more vacation time! We highly recommend this property whether you plan on a large family gathering or a small group getaway, look no further. 3 levels of perfectly sized and spaced out bedrooms and bathrooms, along with great movie watching room with fireplace and giant bean bags for the entire family to hang out and watch a movie after a long day sight seeing outdoors. You know you discovered a great property when the entire family (teens who normally disagree with everything) wants to stay longer and does not want to go home. Thank you for letting us stay in your beautiful home, Steve and Karin!
