United States / Wyoming / Wilson
When you walk in through the gate of our rustic paradise, you enter a world unto itself. Yet outside the gate you're in the most sought after neighborhood in the Rocky Mountain West! Our house is a french inspired log home with all modern amenities.
2 bdrms, 2 baths, huge decks, great gardens (including organic raspberries which are available in our freezer if you're not here in summer! ) Old world fixtures, claw foot tubs, floor-to-ceiling barn sash windows in bathrooms. Small rooms, low ceilings, exposed log perlins, plank floors and ceilings, hand scribed chinking. Friends who have spent time in Provence and Tuscany say that this house has a distinctive character not unlike homes in those regions (In Wyoming. ! ? ! ) I think of it as Authentic Wyoming with a flair.
I love to cook (gourmet, organic, wild and indigenous foods) so the kitchen has a good amount of counter space and clean and well functioning appliances (some new stainless)
Bring a book or borrow ours--we have an interesting collection of regional to international writers, particularly with environmental and conservation themes. Relax and listen to one of the (over 1000) CD's (all genres, heavy on jazz, acoustic, classical)
You'll not find a house like this one anywhere in the world. Nearly everyone who sees it is charmed, with comments such as â€œThis is the dream Wyoming house! â€ This is not a luxury homeâ€š but is classy and cozy (the luthier who built both our guitars designed and built it--it's a work of art. ) A large skylight over the master bed lets you moongaze in the Big Wyoming Sky. The â€œdecorâ€ reflects 20 years of living in Jackson Hole and going to every ranch estate sale/auction in the Old West, as well as 15 years touring nationally and internationally as music acts--and my love of gardening (lots of iron, distressed finishes and garden furniture)
There are 8 small rooms in the living section of the house, and 3 more downstairs that house the TV and high speed internet, laundry, etc. the house is an adventure in itself.
We're in Wilson, 7 miles from Jackson Hole Ski resort, 3 miles to unparalleled back country skiing, 7 miles to town of Jackson (world class restaurants, shops, library, pool, many galleries. ) 9 miles to south boundary of Grand Teton/Yellowstone National Parks (see maps of the region)
It's an incredible environment any time of year.
This is a unique place that everyone should see at least once in their lifetime. For pictures of Jackson and northwest Wyoming, see numerous web sites by searching for Grand Teton, Yellowstone, Jackson Hole. Be sure to check out www. jhalliance. com, the local conservation group's site. Also visit www. bentwoodinn. com to see the bed and breakfast that is less than one mile from our house--this gives you an idea of the neighborhood accomodations. Our house is similar in feel although much smaller than this wonderful inn.
The house is not in a subdivision, rather it's one of two small lots surrounded by 5+ acre parcels, one of which is an historic ranch, 110 acres on the Snake River. Within 2 miles of our home (you can walk or ride down the newly constructed bike path which connects to Grand Teton National Park and Teton Village) are the following:
*Prime Snake River access point (1m)
*Nouveau Italian and Mexican dining (1/4 m)
*Elite Teton Pines Golf and Tennis complex (great little shops, banking, post office, gourmet deli, a very decent wine shop, great garden store, etc. ) (1m)
*Montessori school (1m)
*Health food store (1/4 m)
*Environmentally based K-12 school. (1/10m)
*Old West "General Store" (2m)
*Espresso/Bagel shop on a little creek (2m)
*Public Transportation (directly to and from ski area-adjacent to our property)
*Western Art Gallery (across the street)
*Old West Bar-B-Q and Music Revue show (great for kids) June - Sept
*Excellent Sushi (Really! )
*Yoga Studio/Health Club
It's â€œvillageâ€ living at its best!
Moose live in our yard in winter, in summer the Osprey nest 100ft off the back deck houses the same pair year after year. Bald eagles, blue herons, owls, trumpeter swans and many kinds of hawks are some of the birds you'll see from the deck (and often from the bathtub! ) You'll hear coyotes howl and the Snake River rushing by from our back deck and our high back windows.
