A truly beautiful home and very special place!

  • 5 of 5

Star Valley is absolutely wonderful area! The house provided all we needed for a wonderful gathering of our family from near and far. We had 7 staying in the home and 9 for meals and fun together! This home lives up to all that is described and more! We took advantage of all the amenities—large gorgeous kitchen, all the bedrooms, loft, laundry, garden fresh veggies, hiking, ping-pong and relaxation on the huge deck. We had a fun day using the kayaks in Alpine! Karen even provided extra nice use of toiletries, and food and spice items!

Fabulous time and we didn’t want to leave! I might mention that the listing is incorrect as far as bedrooms is concerned. There are actually 4 bedrooms, each with a queen size bed. There is also a single bed in the loft, and The Porters set up a queen size blowup mattress in the family room for us. Still, we give it 5 Stars!

A five star lodge

  • 5 of 5

Excellent accommodation for ten guests. An extra 'blow-up' mattress was quickly provided, after contacting the owners, for our party of eleven. John & Karen Porter provided many extras, which were greatly appreciated. Wonderful views and a night sky of indescribable beauty - Star Valley Ranch certainly lived up to it's name. Humming birds,which fed from various feeders hung around the balcony, delighted us whilst we ate breakfast and Cheetah, their outside cat, popped in to say hello each morning, much to the delight of our grandchildren. It was a wonderful three day stop over and we were all very sorry when we had to leave to continue our trip.

A truly fantastic home!

  • 5 of 5

Exceptionally beautiful home! Has everything you need. Gorgeous view and peace and quiet. Cheetah the outdoor cat was very friendly too. She loved to curl up in our laps in the early mornings on the deck that overlooks the valley. Just over an hour from Jackson and the Grand Tetons which makes it great for day trips to the attractions. Karen was fantastic to talk to and was always just a phone call away. I would highly recommend this place to everyone. We will be planning a trip to the area next year and this will be the first place we check availability! Karen, you rock!! Thanks for everything!!!

Beautiful 3 story house overlooking the mountains.

  • 5 of 5

The house is beautiful. About an hour to Jackson. Very quiet. Overlooks the mountains. Almost every morning a mule deer would come by to graze. The Porters have a little garden in the back with fresh strawberries. We didn't spend a lot of time at the house as we were busy going into Jackson everyday to visit the Tetons and Yellowstone but we did enjoy coming home to peace and quiet and getting away from the hustle and bustle. There was plenty of room for everyone to have their own space to enjoy time to himself or gather as a family. The Porters were very accommodating. Thank you for sharing your beautiful house with us.

The property was perfect for the ten of us, it is well appointed, and the decor fits the outdoors and awesome scenery and views. I would rent this house again.

Jackson Hole Mountain Resort

Star Valley Ranch is privately tucked away within the mountains, yet only a mile from championship golf courses. We are located less than an hour outside of the hustle and bustle of Jackson Hole. Our home is close enough to restaurants, churches and stores, yet far enough away that you feel the freedom of nature and truly can be on retreat. If you are a water lover, stroll down to Palisades Reservoir where you can cool off while kayaking (2 kayaks included), paddle boarding, fishing, water skiing or just lounging. If you prefer the river, you have three to choose from. At the famous Snake River you can dive into your wild side on a whitewater trill ride. The Greys, and Salt are also easily accessible from the ranches. Cedar Creek golf course offers 18 holes, a lap pool with burger shack and a fun recreational park for kids of all ages to enjoy. If you aren’t golfing or playing in the water, take the short trip to Jackson where you can try out the cowboy lifestyle and enter Teton and Yellowstone National Parks.
