Tibet meets the Tetons

  • 5 of 5

This house is beautiful and comfortable. The heated slate floors make jumping out of bed in the morning easy. The living area with its fabulous views is wonderful and open to the kitchen, which is well stocked with everything needed for cooking great food. The hot tub is warm and inviting when you arrive. And the many decorative touches make you feel like you could be in the Himalayas! Thank you Robin for sharing your wonderful home with us!

Heaven / Tetons

  • 5 of 5

Great place, tailored made for views of the Teton's just far enough away from Jackson but close enough to play all over the area.. such a wonderful home...

Amazing!!!!!

  • 5 of 5

The photos do this property justice but the privacy, western view of the Tetons, and shear spaciousness of the home and acreage for my party of 2 couples cannot be described accurately!! Robin was wonderful and accommodating and she truly provides the feeling like it's your own getaway cabin in paradise. We watched the fireworks show from the nearby Idaho town of Driggs on the Fourth of July and enjoyed the Western night sky from the privacy of a clean, functioning and spacious hot tub! Her gardener, Jamie, our only visitor in 3 days (unless you count Dotty, the Mule deer fawn in the yard), was very unobtrusive as she busily improved the landscaping. Though we were obviously not in season, the location for skiing at The Grand Targhee Ski Resort is perfect! Oh, to see it in snow... I can only imagine!!!

My only disappointment was that the property wasn't available the whole six days I needed! So, schedule as early as possible; Robin's calendar fills up fast!!! Thank you again, Robin!! It was a grand treat for these flatlanders! Dennis

Peaceful Country Setting With Stunning Views Of The Grand Tetons And Teton Valley!

  • 5 of 5

We will be back! This was the perfect place to come back to after day hiking in the Grand Teton National Park! This home is an oasis from the crowds and chaos of the busy season. The home is warm and comfortable with big views through lots of windows. We enjoyed the open floor plan of the kitchen, dining and main living area which allows for conversation while preparing and cooking dinner, lunch, or breakfast.

Though the photos of this lovely Alta home were great, we were pleasantly surprised to discover that they did not truly take in the beauty of this amazing setting. The eastern view of the Grand Tetons is magnificent! The western view of Teton Valley and the sunset is peaceful, serene and equally magnificent! These Incredible views are seen through openings in an intentional grove of aspen, blue spruce, and a sprinkling of colorful wild flowers that surround the home. We were welcomed daily by a Mule Deer and woke to the sounds of meadow birds singing their daily praises. If you enjoy the peace and quiet of nature, this is an incredible place to find it.

The owner, Robin, was responsive, thoughtful and helpful. The home was clean and beautiful, the bed was comfortable and the bedding cozy. We stayed in Alta for 4 days and wished we had stayed longer. The town of Driggs has a wonderful whole foods/co-op type store with lots of yummy organics and the Teton Thai restaurant is our favorite "ever" Thai!

Thank you Robin! Our stay at your home in Alta was more than we had anticipated!

Wonderful house for family Christmas

  • 5 of 5

We just stayed at this house for Christmas 2015. Great location and a beautiful view of the Tetons, a fresh 40+ inches of snow made it even more enjoyable. Owners had very good communication and they made sure everything was clean and ready for our stay. We didn't think or say once we wish this place had this or that, this place has everything for a great vacation.

Simply Amazing!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed at Robin's home during part of our honeymoon and cannot say enough good thihgs about the property. We had everything we could ever need there (and then some). We used the home as a base point for traveling into the Grand Teton and Yellowstone parks, but we would've been content to just stay at the home the whole time too! The hot tub is great, there is a grill and an outdoor shower, and the views of the Tetons are unbelievable - they're right in your backyard! We had also never seen the stars at night quite like you can see them at Robin's home - the sky is so clear and beautiful there. We would recommend this home to anyone. Robin was great - very prompt and accommodating the entire time. If you're still trying to decide where to stay in the Grand Teton/Yellowstone area, go with this home - you will NOT be disappointed.
