This gorgeous home is designed by a historian and a Washington Post Recipe Tester. Enjoy the 3 en-suite bedrooms with a total of 3 ½ baths, map room/den, large gourmet kitchen, dining room looking out to the pond, and two-sided fireplace in the great room to warm your toes. Sleeps 11 and has a pull-out mattress that sleeps an additional 2 in the den. The clock on the wall is frozen at two minutes before high noon.
Test your grilling prowess on the hand-crafted iron True Texas Pit grill with smoke chimney on the patio. Retire in front of the fireplace as the sun sets or try out the vintage and western games in the map room’s closet. Then forget your troubles in the scented bubbles of a warm, jetted tub in the master bedroom.
Plan your adventures in the map room/den with eclectic guides detailing the area’s flora and fauna, bears, and the bright stars above you in the night sky. Then sling binoculars around your neck to spy moose, bison, or find those bears here in nearby Yellowstone and Grand Teton National Parks. Fish for trout, golf, mountain bike, and ride horses. With a guide for bird watchers bulging in your back pocket, hike trails for any experience level. On the drive back try locally-harvested huckleberry shakes at the nearby general store.
In the winter if the vintage skis on the walls inspire you, drive 11 miles north to Driggs, gateway to Grand Targhee Ski Resort. Slip on your cross-country skis and catch the trail right across the road. Jump aboard a helicopter at the landing pad in Teton Springs for high adventure downhill skiing. Enjoy snowcat skiing, snowboarding, and snow shoeing.
Come home and sink into a chair with a book chosen from the loaded shelves while sipping at a steaming mug. The owners are published writers. Look for one owner’s paintings hanging on the walls.
Don your apron to cook in the gourmet kitchen. It’s ready for your reunion, Thanksgiving, or Christmas dinner stocked with premium appliances: Ninja coffee maker, Vitamix, Kitchenaide mixer, Cuisinart food processor, double waffle maker, slow cooker, and coffee grinder, plus a diverse collection of premium spices. Surprise your party with scratch waffles, fresh berry smoothies, pizza, a roast chicken, grilled steak, late night warm cookies, and more! If you don’t see what you need, let us know.
