$6,995,000 Victor, ID 12± Deeded Acres

Executive Summary

Situated along the banks of the Teton River, the Willowbend Retreat represents a highly sought after executive’s ranch located in the heart of the Teton River Valley. The 12.2± deeded acres offer an abundance of diversity with willow-lined riverbanks, manicured lawns and gardens that transition to picturesque grassy meadows and ponds framed by the Teton, Big Hole and Snake River Mountain Ranges. The well-appointed improvements, which include a custom-built main residence and guest lodge, only add to this beautiful setting. Referred to as the “quiet side of the Tetons”, the Willowbend Retreat is located in Teton Valley between the two charming mountain towns of Victor and Driggs, Idaho. This area offers year-round recreational opportunities with nearby access to some of the best trout fishing in the country, convenient access to national parks and forests, as well as two of the country’s most desirable winter skiing destinations, Grand Targhee and Jackson Hole Mountain Resorts. In addition to the local amenities of Teton Valley, Idaho, the Willowbend Retreat is located just 30 miles from Jackson Hole, Wyoming and all it has to offer, including a commercial airport. The Driggs Reed Memorial full service FBO is just 10 miles away for private aviation use.

The land is complemented by a custom-built 2,575± square foot two-bedroom, two-bath single level log home just steps away from the Teton River. A spacious and open floor plan with gourmet kitchen and bar, a large wrap around deck, firepit and dock on the river add to the main home’s charm. From the main residence, an elevated boardwalk spanning a lush spring corridor takes you to the two-story 5,046± square foot guest lodge complete with two-bedrooms and two-baths, pet washroom, a large family entertainment room with a wood burning fireplace and full kitchen, and a multi-purpose space used as an office, art studio and tack room. Both homes were completely renovated from the foundation up in 2018 by one of the valley’s most reputable, high-end home builders.

With approximately 800 feet of river frontage, the Willowbend Retreat offers world-class fishing right out your back door. The Teton River is known for its incredible dry fly fishing and prolific hatches during the summer and fall months. With its gentle meandering flows, this upper reach of the Teton River is more like a spring creek providing opportunities to catch Yellowstone cutthroat trout and rainbows sipping on small dry flies or taking big hoppers along the grassy banks. It is not uncommon to catch cutthroat and rainbow trout in the 20-inch range. The Willowbend Retreat’s river corridor and ponds are a haven for local wildlife. Frequent visitors include moose, whitetail deer, birds of prey and waterfowl.
