About the property

Chateau / Country House, 5 Bedrooms + Office, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 11)

We have a beautifully furnished 5 bs log home at AFFORDABLE RATES, situated at the base of the mountains on 2.5 acres adjacent to National Forests, in a quiet setting but close to everything.

Based at the gateway entrances to both Grand Teton and Yellowstone National Parks, we have the full scope of outdoor recreational activities and amenities to make your visit to the mountains memorable. Groceries are 1 mile away in town of Victor. Driggs- 10 mi, Jackson- 26 mi. Yellowstone- 90 mi. Grand Targhee- 25 mi. See map.

The LOG HOME is 2200 square ft, and boasts five bedrooms , three bathrooms,

2.5 car garage, with hot tub, pond and waterfall, beautiful pool table in garage. Large south and west-facing decks, and windows overlooking the mountains. We are in a rural setting on the sunny, west side of the Teton Range. We have a pond with waterfall and lots of open space with views. Floating on the pond and sunning on the decks are exceptional in the summer months. Highlights in the winter are the Hot Tub and the Wood Burning Fireplace.

Spacious bedrooms are set up with a king bed in the master suite, a second king bed in a large bedroom, and 3 queens in the remaining three bedooms with one having a twin bunk above.

The newly remodeled kitchen is an open layout for easy socializing with the dining and living rooms. It has a semi-circular granite bar with 4 high stools and gas stove in the island. Dining area has a table that seats 6-10.

The living room is a cozy place for evening fires, TV viewing, family games, or simply reading or lounging on 2 large sofas.

Ben is the owner an property manager and lives nearby the property. He is available to you for whatever needs you have, and to help you plan your trip to maximize your vacation time. He is very conscious of maintaining your privacy, but is more than happy to discuss your outdoor activities. Please contact him to discuss your plans.

SUMMER: Imagine waking up to a Teton sunrise with horses running in the neighboring pastures and the tranquility of a truly private mountain setting. Then breathe in the clean mountain air and soak up the morning views.

Your only concern is to decide between a hike up Coal Creek to Mt. Taylor, a day fly fishing on the south fork of the Snake River, a mountain bike up Pole Canyon right from the house, or a day tour at Teton Village in Jackson Hole. Or, you go on a raft trip down the canyon of the Snake River, golf at one of the six local golf courses in the area, a horse back ride up Darby Canyon, or a day on a scenic drive through Grand Teton and Yellowstone National Parks. Speak with Ben ahead of time to set up an itinerary for your trip. We will set you up with all of the famous local outfitters!

WINTER: Wake up in the morning and decide which place to ski based on the morning snow report. Equidistant from Grand Targhee and Jackson Hole Mtn Resorts (30 min each). Or cross country skiing right from the house! If you walk across the street to Teton Springs you can skate ski or nordic ski their 10 K nordic track open to the public for free. Perhaps you like back country skiing and want to spend the day in some of the best back-country terrain in the Tetons just ten minutes from the house atop Teton Pass and Mt. Glory. Snowshoeing is accessible 5 min from the house up Moose Creek, Pole Canyon or Game Creek. Then come back to the log cabin for a warm hot tub and drinks by the fire.

More Details on the House:

All of these activities are based from the comfort of a large but cozy log home offering a spacious living room with rustic hickory hardwood floors, bar, baby grand piano, fireplace and outdoor hot tub. Our large kitchen and atrium connect to the living room and offer great space for holiday parties. Spacious rooms with hand-peeled authentic log interiors make for private settings. Also a lovely bench seat window in the master offers a quiet resting spot to enjoy the waterfall view in the summer.

The large master bedroom with walk-in closet offers a double shower head, jacuzzi tub, and a travertine tile bath. There are now 3 bathrooms including a Jack and Jill bath accessible from either side of two bedrooms. This bath has heated floors and nice tile shower. Extra bathroom is comfortable and nicely appointed with granite counter top and double sinks. A spacious laundry room allows for convenient upkeep during your stay.

Sorry no smoking, dogs CONSIDERED.

Serious inquiries only.

Look forward to your visit!!

About Ben

Ben is an active outdoorsman who spends his free time in the mountains or on a warm beach when on vacation. He works in the restaurant business, and in property management, is a handy man, and very knowledgeable about the area. He is available to assist you with designing your trip.

Ben purchased this chateau / country house in 2003

Why Ben chose Victor

This property is located perfectly to avoid the hustle and bustle of Jackson Hole in the summer, yet have easy access to both National Parks, and many trails right out your door for hiking and biking. With a quiet feel, and plenty of land, you won't feel crowded by neighbors, the forest is in clear view, and yet there is a full service grocery store 1.5 miles away. Great in the off seasons with even more peace and stillness, for anyone wanting a creative retreat.

What makes this chateau / country house unique

The clean mountain air and lack of crowds will leave you marveling that you have it all to yourselves. If you are looking for some nightlife or non-nature activities, Jackson is only 30 min away, and there is even live music in Victor! and in the summer its MUSIC ON MAIN free concert every thursday eve!

Guestbook comments from the owner

The glow plug on the stove went out the day this group arrived. They were planning on using oven. I had a appliance repairman on it the same day. They had to order a part so unfortunately this was repaired the day this group left.

Everything is in working order now

The house was perfect for our large family

  • 5 of 5

Ben was very helpful in letting us know what to do. We used the hot tub a lot Set up the volleyball in the yard and corn hole game on the nice days and plenty of hiking around. Kitchen was nice open floor plan so while cooking see what was going on. Pool table in garage was nice so the boys could be out there enjoy themselves while the girls watched a movie. Thank you Ben we will be back

We enjoyed staying here during our trip. The home is cozy. The 3 bathrooms made it perfect for our group. If there were ceiling fans in the bedrooms it would be perfect!!

Great place for a group with kids!

  • 4 of 5

We all really enjoyed the house. The snowblower and the (pre)chopped firewood were definitely time-saving bonuses. The yard was perfect for the kids and the open floor plan in the living room/kitchen made it easy to keep an eye on them while cooking. The house is in a great location- just a few minutes from town and you don't even have to cross Teton pass to get to great skiing & snow shoe trails! Ben was always quick to resolve any issues we came across, thanks for the great trip!

Absolutely beatiful, loved the view, location and comfort of Ben's home.

  • 5 of 5

Ben’s beautiful cabin was perfect for our vacation. It was so convenient to be close to the Grand Tetons, Yellowstone, Jackson Hole, trails and great places to eat. It is very cozy to come back from a long day, make as fire and have a glass of wine. We would go back in a heartbeat.
