The Catamount House is a luxurious, five-bedroom lodge built into a hillside of boulders and bright Western wildflowers, surrounded by trees and the high Wyoming mountains. Its large, paneled front door opens onto a quiet Granite Ridge cul-de-sac – and from there it is just a short walk to Grand Teton National Park, the slopes, and the Four Seasons hotel, where sushi and cocktails await.
A thoughtful, attentive owner and a well-known designer have made Catamount into a marvelous, hospitable vacation home. The lodge is in accord with the mountain landscape all around, its log frame and peaked roofs brushed by high pine boughs. Inside there are five distinctive, comfortable bedrooms, five and a half bathrooms, and every modern convenience. Art from around the West hangs on the walls. Throughout the day, golden light fills Catamount’s high-ceilinged rooms, and there is a constant feeling of alpine spaciousness and peace.
Catamount is as suited for relaxing after a day of skiing or hiking as it is for high-style entertaining. Full sets of table linens, china, crystal and elegant flatware are at hand, and the dining room will easily seat ten. Catamount’s second-floor kitchen, with its big gas stove, Sub Zero fridge, granite countertops and array of gourmet cooking equipment can accommodate cooking enthusiasts or a professional chef. The room has an open layout and a bar that make meal preparation easy and communal. Just beyond the kitchen is a deck with a gas grill for cooking in the open air.
The second floor of Catamount is also the main living and dining area. Just up an art-filled staircase from the entryway, the great room and dining room are divided by back-to-back river stone fireplaces that stretch up to cathedral ceilings. Tall windows frame the trees outside – seasonal art in themselves, ablaze with color in fall or garlanded in snow. French doors open to an outdoor living area with willow chairs, a dining table and the fresh balsam air of the forest. Next to the dining room, there is a sunroom where the flowered hillside fills the high windows like a painting; and outside, a hot tub on its own private deck.
The second floor also holds the house’s two biggest bedrooms, both with rough-hewn, log frame king beds and private baths. A fully-equipped laundry room is also on this level, and everywhere you turn there are quiet alcoves with game tables, comfortable chairs, and reading lights. A porch under the eaves sits just above the front door.
Catamount’s other three bedrooms are on the first floor. Two bedrooms each have a twin bed and a bunk bed; the other guest room can be set up with a king bed or two twins. There are three full bathrooms on the first floor, one with a steam shower. The first floor is where guests will find some of the home’s great diversions: a game room, and a media center with television and stereo. A mudroom with lockers is ready to store boots, skis and snowshoes, and from there the back door opens onto the vast Wyoming wilderness.
Catamount is a charming, personal, and welcoming lodge that makes its visitors feel like they are guests in a very special home.TripAdvisor property ID 3550344...Read more
