Rapid Creek winds like a blue ribbon down past Rapid Creek Lodge, a robust, luxurious Western log house on ten acres of pasture and aspens, with the Grand Tetons towering behind. Elk, deer and moose often come out of the vast forest to visit the creek.
The centre of the three-bedroom house is one great vaulted room, divided by a massive stone fireplace into living and dining areas, and by a granite-topped breakfast bar from the kitchen - which is professionally equipped and has an absolutely spectacular view.
Soaring windows bring the outdoors in. The master suite and guest room are set on opposite sides of the first floor. Upstairs, a bridge leads to a loft-like game room, and the third bedroom and bath.
Rapid Creek sits in the very heart of ski country, next to the nation’s best powder at Grand Targhee, and 45 minutes from Teton village. Summer here is magical; a horse corral, four-stall barn, and trails into the Jediah Wilderness are just out the back door. Perhaps best of all, a full-time caretaker lives on property.
