Shooting Star Cabin 6675 is a large house of weathered barn wood and stone in the Shooting Star Golf Community, set at the edge of a frolicsome stream. Before it the golf course unrolls voluptuously, while behind the house the huge bulk of the ski mountain, rears into the sky.
The great room – a lofty, open barn-like wing of the house – holds the kitchen, living and dining areas. The wood-burning fireplace, the large flat-screen TV and the great spread of Jackson Hole outside the huge picture windows can be seen from any place in the room: the long, welcoming couch, the dining table, the tidy and efficient kitchen. Overhead, the rough-hewn rafters and wood ceiling recall 19th Century construction, and an antler chandelier hangs down over the table. Glass doors open to the stone terraces, and let the great room become part of the wide outdoors. The kitchen is set off from the dining room by a high breakfast counter. Rustic barn wood cabinets are stocked with fine equipment and appliances – including an under-counter wine cooler – and high-quality china, crystal and linens.
Shooting Star Cabin 6675 has four big bedrooms. The master suite stands in a wing of its own, just down a glass-walled hallway from the front door. Charming and well proportioned, the master suite has a deep leather reading chair and ottoman, a gas fireplace, a TV hidden in a cabinet that rises to viewing level at a touch of the remote. Windows on three sides allow a long view from the bed of ski slopes, the golf course and the tumbling stream. The master bath is lovely, all panelled in painted wood, with a soaking tub and a separate shower.
From the front door, a staircase leads to a large landing furnished with a game table and comfortable, soft seating. Three guest rooms are extended from the landing, and share the seating area between them. A glassed-in hallway leads, bridge-like, to one guest bedroom and its private bath, where the queen bed commands a fabulous view of the high blue mountains. A large king suite is set over the garage, spacious enough to be considered a second master bedroom, with a coffee bar, sitting area, desk, breakfast table and a private bathroom. Finally, a door off the landing opens to a sunny, pretty room with two twin beds.
The Shooting Star Golf Community lies within Teton Village, carefully designed to harmonize with the natural landscape and the staggering backdrop of the Tetons. Guests of Shooting Star Cabin 6675 have access to the ski valet barn and the shuttle to the mountain, as well as the fitness centre, spa, pool, hot tub, club house bar and dining. Shooting Star’s stunning, 18-hole golf course, designed by Tom Fazio, borders the Class-1 trout stream Fish Creek. Shooting Star also has a wonderful Activity Barn with a “kids only” section, sure to be a hit with the younger set. But Shooting Star Cabin 6675 has a pull all its own – the outdoor dining and grill, the hot tub and fire pit on the terrace, the long view, the pervading sense of deep comfort and peace. Jackson is a quick drive away; and we can assist with ski passes, personal chefs, theatre tickets or anything else to make your Jackson Hole visit a tremendous one.
