This is the classic log cabin with new kitchen and stone fireplace that you've been looking for! The 2-story log cabin features a master bedroom with fantastic views that sleeps two (2) adults in a cozy four poster queen bed. The other bedroom doubles as a den for TV watching and has a twin daybed and an extra twin mattress that can be set up on the floor. A central great room with a modern kitchen, large fireplace, elk horn chandelier, and dining table rounds out this romantic cabin set amidst rolling ranch land and stands of aspens.
Colter Cabin is located on 7 picturesque acres just north of Driggs, Idaho near the Wyoming state line. Rolling ranch lands and stands of aspen and pine trees extend for miles in all directions. The cabin is 9 miles from downtown Driggs, 13 miles from Grand Targhee ski and summer resort, 45 miles from Jackson Hole, and 97 miles from Yellowstone National Park. Men's Journal named Driggs "the best small town in America" in 2002. It's still true today!
Past guests have remarked that Colter Cabin is perfect for couples, a small family, artist/writer retreats, honeymoons, bird watching, hiking, kayaking, powder skiing, fishing, golfing, or just enjoying the fresh air and open space. This corner of eastern Idaho (also known as "Wydaho") delivers an authentic Western experience year round.
Enjoy your morning coffee on the front deck with views of Grand Targhee ski area, the 2,000 acre ranch next door, and the majestic Tetons. Winter brings deep and dry powder skiing without the crowds at Grand Targhee or head over the pass to world-famous Jackson Hole Mountain Resort to ride the aerial tram. Cross-country ski or snowshoe right out the front door to access the many groomed trails nearby.
Summer delivers excellent family kayaking on the slow-moving Teton River or more adventurous excursions on the Snake River through Grand Teton National Park. There's also mountain biking in the Big Hole Mountains and fly-fishing on Leigh Creek, the Teton River and Island Park/Henry's Fork. The Jedediah Smith Wilderness is just a few miles down the road into Wyoming and features miles of beautiful hiking trails. Leigh Creek is an easy walk right down the county road. Horseback riding and golf are both available inside of a 10-minute drive. The town of Driggs features cute restaurants like Teton Thai and plenty of great shops.
Jackson Hole (45 miles) is full of art galleries, shopping, museums, restaurants, and outdoor activities like cross-country and downhill skiing. Idaho Falls and Jackson airports are both about 75 minutes away if you're planning to fly. The West Yellowstone entrance of Yellowstone National Park is 97 miles north across the Montana state line.
