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.

About Ginger

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.

Ginger purchased this cabin in 2001

Why Ginger chose Tetonia

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.

Pleasantly surprised

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed at Colter Cabin last week for four nights. We also stayed at another cabin in Gardiner, MT at the end of the week. I have to admit we were originally more excited to stay at the other cabin but it turned out we liked Colter Cabin more. The pictures really don't do it justice. The cabin is very clean, well stocked and more than enough room for the two of us. The setting is very quiet and tranquil and the views are amazing. It's a 10 minute drive to the town of Driggs where we ate all of our meals and did some grocery shopping. It's also about an hour drive to Jackson Hole and Grand Teton National Park. The drive was spectacular. I can't even find the words to describe how beautiful it was. We travel a lot and this is one of our favorite rentals. Ginger was very responsive and easy to work with. She even returned my security deposited in under a week after we left. I highly recommend this cabin.

The most picturesque and lovely place we've ever stayed.

  • 5 of 5

From our first view of Colter Cabin we were smitten! It looks fantastic, is in a beautiful, peaceful location and has everything you need and more. It is cosy, unique, well equipped (best equipped kitchen of anywhere we've ever stayed), comfortable and a home away from home. We wanted somewhere peaceful but within reasonable travelling distance to the Grand Teton national park and Colter Cabin certainly fit the bill. We actually came to the area to elope so we wanted somewhere special and this certainly delivered.

A special thanks as well to Ginger who was quick and helpful with communication and was also happy for us to have wedding pictures taken at the property. They turned out fantastically and even the photographer was very taken with the cabin.

We were very sad when it came to leaving but have both agreed we will return!

Beautiful Cabin in Beautiful Setting

Our stay at the cabin was great! The views and sunsets are amazing. Very remote and private. Did some throwback gaming on the original Xbox. Would definitely stay here again!

We'll be back!

  • 5 of 5

We couldn't have asked for a better home base for our recent Idaho fly fishing trip. Everything was perfect from the well stocked kitchen to the sleeping arrangements. Loved unwinding on the rear deck after a day of fishing Henry's Fork. Don't miss checking out the little booklet with restaurant recommendations.....the Tai restaurant in Driggs is a great choice. Gonna try to make this trip an annual event
