About Matt Hail

I've been a Teton Valley resident for 10 years. I'm a Realtor at Sage Realty Group in Driggs. I met the love of my life in 2008, and we married in 2011.

Matt Hail purchased this house in 2015

Why Matt Hail chose Galloway Hills

We purchased this beautiful property as an investment in October of 2015. It's way more than we need, and we have no children, so we're offering it as a vacation rental.

What makes this house unique

This property is located in the very back of a secluded subdivision the woods. Our property borders Wyoming BLM land, and we have a private trail that leads from our property directly up Commissary Ridge to Targhee National Forest. The house is suitable for large families, as well as large functions, such as weddings and family reunions.

Great place to bring people together

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at this lovely Mountain Home. We brought together multiple families with little kids and we really enjoyed the layout that provided everyone with their own space while having spacious communal areas for hanging out as well. The kitchen is well stocked and we enjoyed cooking for everyone during our stay. The owners were very responsive and helpful. They even offered to grab a sprinkler in town and bring it to us so that they kids could run through it in the yard. So thoughtful! We highly recommend renting this home. It is beautiful. Thank you!

Absolutely perfect!

  • 5 of 5

This is an amazing house. Our family came together from all over the US for a reunion. The house was so perfect. It was CLEAN, well-equipped, comfortable, and beautiful. The owners have thought of everything and live nearby, so they are available if you have questions. Have used VRBO homes many times, many places, but this was the best ever!!!!!

Family Reunion

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for a family reunion to celebrate our mothers 80th birthday. It was great there was 10 adults and 3 children and we had plenty of space inside and out. It was everything that we were expecting it to be. Matt was great he answered any questions that we had. Would stay here again.

Great place for a family reunion

  • 5 of 5

Thank you, Matt. All 11 of us had a great time at your house. We made good use of everything available to us—the hot tub, grill, porch, yard, fireplace, laundry, etc. The kitchen was well stocked with everything we needed for big family meals, and we really appreciated having a fully stocked spice cupboard. All we needed to do was shop for the main ingredients, and that was easily done at Broulim's in Driggs (though Broulim's is closed on Sunday).

The house is a beautiful 16-minute drive from Driggs, which isn't far when you have the peaks of the Grand Tetons to look at. With this as home base, we took day trips to Yellowstone NP and Grand Teton NP, went to the Rodeo in Jackson, and some of us took a breathtaking lift ride on the lift the mountain at the Targhee ski resort.

  • 5 of 5

Had 4 children & families ages 77 to 10 wks, lodge fit us well. great kitchen with 6 burner stove. outdoor fireplace being worked on, close to hiking and lots of sight-seeing, great drive to Jackson. Very convenient to Rexburg & Idaho Falls. Just thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Matt was there if we needed him but was invisible otherwise. Highly recommend it. (Pictures are quite accurate).
