What’s for sale in Teton Village?

As I look out the window of the Jackson Hole Sotheby’s sales office in Hotel Terra in Teton Village, the weather is gorgeous, perhaps even perfect. Visibility is low and temperatures are in the teens as a heavy snowstorm blows in from the southwest. This late December squall comes on the heels of one of […]

Teton Village real estate enjoying sweet spot

The sales desk at Teton Mountain Lodge is quiet this first week of December, with occupancy at Teton Village core hotels far below capacity. The slopes of Jackson Hole Mountain Resort are wide open and the smiling, freshly trained ski technicians, bartenders, bellhops and shopkeepers just might outnumber the guests. The calm, however, will be […]

Frosty sunrises give way to gorgeous days with mild temperatures and gentle breezes. The summer crowds are thinning. Quite simply, it is the best month of the year for golf […]

Melody Ranch: A neighborhood in full

Regular readers know Melody Ranch is one of my favorite Jackson Hole neighborhoods, with a mention in just about every post. Why?

Gill Addition: Jackson Hole’s hottest address

The property listing in the Gill Addition near downtown Jackson wasn’t very large, with about 1,200 square feet, two smallish bedrooms and a single bathroom. Certainly it was not new or in superior condition, having been built in 1957 with few updates over the ensuing 56 years. Also not enticing for potential buyers was a […]

Fore! Golf real estate drives 10% of Jackson market
