Great house and wonderful location.

  • 4 of 5

Bridger Cabin is a great location. Just minutes from Thayne and about 15-20 to Alpine. Close to much of the attractions in Star Valley. Horseback riding, ATVs, boat and kayak rentals are all super close. We enjoyed camp fires in the backyard fire pit and made s'mores every night. Stunning views of the mountains/valley from the living room or the full length patio outside. The steam shower was great after spending the day on horseback or on the river. We'd definitely stay here again.

A wonderful log home in a beautiful place.

  • 5 of 5

This is our second trip to the Star Valley area. We stayed previously in the town of Alpine, which is about 15 miles north of this home. Peter's home here in the valley was another wonderful experience.

Because this "cabin" is nearly 3,000 square feet, our family (which consists of 7 adults) had plenty of room in the home. The large living/dining room area was perfect for meals and game nights. The kitchen is connected to this great room area so that even those whose turn it was to cook and clean were still able to be a part of the activities. The kitchen was well-stocked with everything we needed to prepare meals and there was a full-sized laundry room to keep us in clean clothes. The bedrooms--especially that master suite--were very comfortable and quiet.

The home is in a rustic development of sorts with gravel roads, no streetlights, and underground utilities. However, most of the nearby lots are still undeveloped and the nearest homes are approximately 100 yards away so we were never bothered by any noise from the neighbors. There is a large vacation trailer park just up the road and a community of second homes called Star Valley. We enjoyed the two golf courses that are open to the public. The surrounding mountains and meadows make for incredible views throughout the day. We especially enjoyed the huge decks on the north and south sides of the home. The weather was very warm while we were there but we were able to sit in the shade during most hours of the day by moving from the south deck to the north as the sun traversed the sky.

Even though the home is down in Star Valley, we were able to make a few day trips up to Jackson (about a 55 mile drive north along the beautiful Snake River) and a long day-trip (a 15 hour day of driving!) through the Yellowstone Grand Loop.

We enjoyed our stay at Peter's home tremendously! The home is currently on the market but we will definitely stay there again if it is available for our next vacation in the valley.

Stunning Location, Great little house

  • 5 of 5

We got off to a bad start because we arrived well after dark (and quite wonderfully, there is NO outdoor lighting in the area) and we could not make out house numbers and could not locate the home. We thought we were going to get shot prowling around people's houses with flashlights at 11:30 p.m. Problem was that google maps was pointing to the wrong side of the road. The owner since fixed it by adding better directions to his instructions.

That being said (it was no one's fault), what a WONDERFUL property to just chill out and use as a home base to see a vast number of fantastic attractions in the area - Jackson Hole is driving distance, the Intermittent Spring (largest intermittent spring in the world) is right in Star Valley and is just a short hike away (check the times of year when it's active).

We arrived after dark after a 13 hour drive from Nevada but the reason we were so late was quite wonderful. The last stretch of road on Highway 34 from Lava Hot Springs was TEEMING with wildlife (including many cattle, with lots of nursing Mamas in the roadway) and we had to go quite slow. We saw a huge owl, elk, many deer, raccoons, something that looked like a falcon, a river otter and more. My gosh what a roadway that is!

The home was wonderfully equipped with all manner of kitchen implements, which I very much appreciated as I prepared several family dinners for extended family that also arrived in Star Valley to bury my beautiful Mother in Fairview. We barbecued, played several family games that were in the property's goody cabinet. My family especially loved the steam feature in the master shower!

Oh, there were just a few not-so perfect things about the property, but in the big picture they didn't matter. The wifi service is poor (almost worthless) but there is fine ATT cell signal there. I found the same wifi condition when we rented a large house in SV Ranch a few years earlier. Perhaps good service is just not available there. There is no cable TV, but there is a huge television and a person can go use the Netflix and Amazon video service on it.

The star gazing possibilities at the property are WONDERFUL and the home is equipped with a telescope. Hint: The garbage disposal switch is along the top inside front of the lower cabinet. We had a hard time finding it and my brother finally thought to trace the wires to the switch).

All in all, it was memorable trip and thanks to Peter and this property for making it extra special

Large well-equipped home with beautiful views

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay very much. The bedrooms were large, the master bed was very comfortable and there was plenty of room for our family. The great room has amazing views-we loved watching the hawks swoop around. Peter was very easy to work with; we appreciated his kindness.

Great place for quiet, beautiful scenery, family gathering. No large mixing bowl. Had food in refrig. We brought our own. Hard to keep separate. Had mouse poop. I cleaned counters with disinfectant. We really enjoyed our stay. Would recommend and come again.
