The space

What's so great about our humble, simple, older abode is, it can be a relaxing getaway or the center hub of adventures all year round.

The perfect vacation destination for the adventurous, and those wanting to experience the nature, sights, and peacefulness that this little town offers.
You HAVE to meet our hummingbirds all summer long! They're just too adorable to miss.

Located in a little town that embodies the charm of country life in Irwin, Idaho, on the SE Idaho / Wyoming border. Easy to find and an ideal location for day trips to surrounding areas like Teton Valley, Idaho, Grand Targhee Resort, or Star Valley, Wyoming to name a few.

OR, it can be a stop on your way to Jackson Hole, Wyoming, Grand Teton National Park and Yellowstone.
*We are one hour southwest of Jackson and Grand Teton National Park, and three hours south of Old Faithful.
If you want to stay closer to Yellowstone, MT. we have references on a great place to stay near there, in Island Park. Ask us and we'll get you that info.

This is your own private house right on the River for that incredible feeling that lasts all day and all night. A place you'll remember for pristine mornings and sunset evenings. Perfect for a couple, small family, or solo adventurer.
It's nice.

Our hope is that you'll come stay with us. The house comes with everything you will need for a great stay. We have everything you need to spoil yourself for a change!!

Coffee, tea, hot cocoa, juice, and other kitchen basics, and including microwave, toaster oven, ninja blender and coffee maker, pots and pans, cookie sheet, popcorn popper, dishwasher, and more. Lots more.

The living room, master bedroom, & backyard has a spectacular view of the Snake River; from up above, to enjoy.

BBQ grill, nice patio table, chairs, and umbrella, or the bench, to relax at on the deck in between your summer days adventures.

Two Lounge chairs: Don't forget your Summer Read. ..or you're welcome to read any of ours.

Outdoor Patio shaded under the deck above.
A porch swing to relax in while listening to the birds and keeping track of those feisty hummingbirds; and watching the boats & fishermen drift by.
A metal mesh fire pit and camp chairs to sit around and relax, visit, roast hot dogs, and marshmallows, and a place to warm up to in the evenings. *Just remember if you're not roasting but enjoying the warmth of a fire, keep the mesh cover OVER your small fire to keep flying embers from going airborne, thanks! A handy bucket of water is left next to metal fire pit... just in case it's needed.

There is a path to your own secluded and private water-front spot and fire pit. Please use care and caution when you build a fire, of course. Later summer months there is usually a burn-ban. Will keep you notified when there is.

When you're not outdoors hiking or biking the trails, boating, fishing, floating the river, or any number of activities; enjoy family time on the big comfy couch viewing Netflix or Prime Fire Stick TV; which is included on all three Smart TV's. No cable TV services available. Cards and board games in the front room closet.

How about a good soak in a claw-foot tub after those long summer days of outdoor adventures?
Come try ours out, it's here waiting for you.

You'll find Idaho at it's best, winter, spring, summer, and fall.
It's here for you to experience; it's not just a place to spend the night.

This place has it all. Location and view are just amazing. The house has been remodeled very nicely and has so many great touches. The owner has thought of everything you could think of. Don't worry if you forget something she has you covered. What a great value and what a great place to stay. We came down for some duck hunting and fly fishing and it worked perfectly for me and my business partner.

What a delightful cottage by the spectacular river.!! You will feel immediately at home when you step inside this enchanted dwelling. Ani and Alice have thought of your every need. Their attention to detail with the amenities they have provided are perfect: from the books to read, the games to play, the bath salts in the claw-footed tub to the Apple TV. You will not want to leave this place. I highly recommend this cottage for your gateway stay to the Tetons, Yellowstone, Palisades Reservoir and truly... God’s Country!

We loved staying at the cottage. It was comfortable, very clean, and had a fantastic view of the river and mountains. Also, Ani had just about everything you need - from basic cooking condiments to toiletries. We'd love to come back.

Ani User Profile

One of my many nicknames is Ani.
Our family Motto is: Work Hard and Play Harder!
We raised our three sons and three daughters doing just that. We all moved pipe, rode horses; moved cattle to the range and back, on the family farm in Victor, Idaho. We rode motorcycles, skied at Targhee, hiked, and camped in Swan Valley and Teton Valley; fished, water-skied and played at Palisades Reservoir from sun up to sun down. No Disneyland trips for us guys, not even once. Too many great things to do right here! The kids are grown-up and gone now with babies of their own. We are only left with the memories of those good times with family and friends... which we cherish most and we wonder, "where did the time go?"!

Recently Retired we are looking forward to the next chapter in our lives, traveling to see those 15 grandbabies.

Hope you'll come stay, relax, and enjoy our little get-away spot... Your New Favorite Riverside Retreat!
