Shooting Star Cabin Number 16 is a large house of weathered barnwood and stone in the Shooting Star Golf Community, set at the edge of a frolicsome stream. Its many roofs and wings create an impression of old homesteader’s cabins and barns joined together in a pleasing, cohesive whole.
The majestic great room—a lofty, open barn-like wing of the house—holds the kitchen, living and dining areas. The wood-burning fireplace, the large flat-screen TV and the great spread of Jackson Hole outside the huge picture windows can be seen from any place in the room: the long, welcoming couch, the dining table, the tidy and efficient kitchen. Overhead, the rough-hewn rafters and wood ceiling recall 19th Century construction, and an antler chandelier hangs down over the table. Glass doors open to the stone terraces, and let the great room become part of the wide outdoors. The kitchen is set off from the dining room by a high breakfast counter. Rustic barnwood cabinets are stocked with fine equipment and appliances—including an under-counter wine cooler and refrigeration and freezer drawers—and high-quality china, crystal and linens. A walk-in pantry, a fine range and a second prep sink make cooking a job to vie for.
Every window at Shooting Star Cabin 16 holds a million-dollar view: the golf course unrolls voluptuously in front of the house, while behind it the huge bulk of the ski mountain, ribboned with trails, rears into the sky; and Fish Creek (a Class-1 trout stream) provides a constant, cheerful music just outside the back door. Shooting Star Cabin 16 has a stone patio that overlooks the 18-hole, Tom Fazio-designed golf course, and, which save for the occasional golfer, cross country skier or stray moose, feels private, even secluded. Out here are the gas grill and the outdoor dining table, the fire pit and the hot tub—a magical, al-fresco “great room” with no walls whatsoever.
Shooting Star Cabin 16 has four big bedrooms. The master suite stands in a wing of its own, just down a glass-walled hallway from the front door. Charming and well-proportioned, the master suite has a deep leather reading chair and ottoman, a gas fireplace, a TV hidden in a cabinet that rises to viewing level at a touch of the remote. Windows on three sides allow a long view from the bed of ski slopes, the golf course and the tumbling stream. The master bath is lovely, all paneled in painted wood, with a soaking tub and a separate shower.
From the front door, a staircase leads to a large landing furnished with a game table and a foldout leather couch. Three guest rooms extend from the landing, and share the seating area between them. A large king suite is set over the garage, spacious enough to be considered a second master bedroom, with a coffee bar, sitting area, desk, breakfast table and a private bathroom. A door off the landing opens to a sunny, pretty room with two twin beds standing side by side.
A glassed-in hallway leads, bridge-like, to the final guest bedroom, where the queen bed commands a fabulous view of the high blue mountains. This is an elegant, sumptuous room, with soft carpeting underfoot and branch-like reading lights flanking the bed. The private bath has a tub and shower combination, and a double vanity clad in barn-red custom cabinetry.
The Shooting Star Golf Community lies within Teton Village, all of it carefully designed to harmonize with the natural landscape and the staggering backdrop of the Tetons. Guests of Shooting Star Cabin 16 have access to all of Shooting Star’s many amenities: the ski valet barn and the shuttle to the mountain, the fitness center, golf, spa, pool, hot tub, club house bar and dining. Shooting Star also has a wonderful Activity Barn with a “kids only” section, sure to be a hit with the younger set. But Shooting Star Cabin 16 has a pull all its own—the hot tub and fire pit on the terrace, the long view, the pervading sense of luxury, comfort and peace. Jackson is a quick drive away; and The Clear Creek Group can assist with ski passes, personal chefs, theatre tickets or anything else to make your Jackson Hole visit a tremendous one.TripAdvisor property ID 4463130...Read more
