Teton Timbers Ranch, listed for sale on July 10, sparkles like a wilderness gem between the forested slopes of southeast Idaho’s Big Hole Mountains (part of the Snake River Range) and the peaks of the Grand Tetons to the east. This wild and beautiful 960-acre private inholding is almost completely surrounded by national forestland and is an easy drive to some of the best fly-fishing and skiing in North America.
Unspoiled and undeveloped—save for a platform yurt serviced by electricity, gas and water near the ranch entrance—the acreage presents its new owners a blank canvas on which to create the ultimate recreational retreat.
It is extremely rare to find a wild and beautiful forest service inholding of nearly 1,000 acres lying only 12 miles from a year-round recreational town and within an hour of a world-famous resort community like Jackson Hole. Undoubtedly, this piece of wilderness could be one of the most desirable mountain retreats in the region. – Trent Jones, Hall & Hall Broker
Accessible via paved road connecting to the town of Driggs, Idaho, the property is threaded by ten miles of roadway that open the ranch up to spring and summer adventures including hiking, horseback riding, mountain biking and ATV riding. Explore the ranch during the winter months via snowshoes, cross-country skis or by snowmobile.
Teton Timbers Ranch is surrounded almost entirely by the 2.5±-million-acre Caribou-Targhee National Forest, which itself borders Wyoming’s Grand Teton and Yellowstone national parks. This extends the ranch’s backyard far beyond the property boundary, adding even more year-round recreational opportunities and bringing the ranch owners into contact with moose, elk, deer, raptors and all of the wildlife of the area.
Only a single private landowner joins the ranch. Located along the southeast corner of Teton Timbers, this property consists of 120± acres held in a conservation easement with the Teton Regional Land Trust, thereby limiting future development.
For hunters, resident and non-resident deer and elk tags are available over the counter in Idaho and the ranch itself offers good on-site hunting plus direct access to thousands of acres of public lands with big game including deer, elk, moose, mountain lion and black bear.
As if all the on-property outdoor action isn’t enough, the wider Teton Valley area is packed with adventures that include world-class trout fishing—former veep Dick Cheney is known to enjoy casting his line in streams throughout the region—skiing and snowboarding at resorts including Grand Targhee and hundreds of miles of trails for biking, hiking and ATVing. The valley’s tourist and other amenities are centered around the outdoor-centric towns of Driggs and Victor, not to mention the upscale cowboy town of Jackson just across the Idaho-Wyoming line.
