About the Property

Cabin, 1 Bedroom, 2 Baths (Sleeps 2)

This is the classic log cabin (with new kitchen!) you've been looking for. Located in Driggs, Idaho - 45 miles from Jackson Hole and 97 miles from Yellowstone. Sleeps 2 adults in queen bed, and 1 child could sleep on sofa. Named by Men's Journal 'the best small town in America'. We also have 'Horseshoe' Cabin' next door - 3 bedroom plus loft - see VRBO #19652.

Perfect for a couple, or small family, artist/writer retreat, honeymoon, bird watching, hiking, kayaking, skiing, fishing, or just enjoy the fresh air.

Colter Cabin is located on 7 acres surrounded by ranches and aspen trees. Views of Grand Targhee ski area and Grand Tetons from the front deck. 25 minute drive to Grand Targhee for great powder skiing and 65 minute drive over the pass to ski in Jackson Hole. Cross-country ski and snowshoe out the front door or on many groomed trails close by.

Great kayaking on the Teton and Snake Rivers and mountain biking in the Big Hole Mountains. Fly-fishing at Leigh Creek, Teton River and Henry's Fork. Hiking out your door in the Jedediah Smith Wilderness. Beautiful Leigh Creek within walking distance. Horseback riding and golf available 5 min. away. Darling town of Driggs with cute restaurants and shops is a 7 mile drive.

Jackson Hole (50 minute drive) is full of art galleries, shopping, museums, restaurants, float trips on the Snake, cross-country and downhill skiing. Idaho Falls and Jackson airports are both 75 minutes away. Yellowstone National Park is 100 miles north - enter at West Yellowstone. Island Park and Henry's Fork, an area of world famous fly fishing, is 40 minutes north.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2001

About the owner: We bought this cabin as a vacation get away for family and friends. Since then we have had the opportunity to live here full time for a year! We split our time between the cabin, Berkeley and Uruguay. Our family uses the cabins often, so the kitchens are well equipped and the beds are comfy. We love to hike and kayak and cook dinners for the family. We have two grown children who live in San Francisco and Berkeley.

Why the Owner Chose Tetonia, ID, USA:
This area of Idaho, Wyoming and Montana is just gorgeous. There are so many beautiful areas to visit - mountains, waterfalls, rivers, fields of wildflowers throughout the summer, great snow all winter - you will want to be outdoors every day. Late spring is the best time to see the animals with their new offspring, and October brings the spectacular golden 'quaking' leaves on the aspen trees.
