Shooting Star Cabin 17 is a large, handsome and entirely welcoming house, a classic Shooting Star abode set beside a clear shallow creek. The mountains and ski slopes form a magnificent backdrop for Cabin 17, and its tall windows look out in all directions to the stream, the woods, the rolling green golf course, and the great soaring mountainscape beyond. A heavy, iron-studded front door opens to the foyer. Here a tranquil and inviting color scheme of ivory and smoky blue is introduced by way of a painted dresser and a cushioned chair. It is a chromatic theme echoed throughout the house, serene and soft against Cabin 17's stonework and thick log-and-mortar walls. A curtained doorway in the foyer frames the front hall, an invitation into the grand and intimate spaces of Cabin 17; all singularly peaceful, lovely, full of light and air; all feeling of home.
The lofty, open living area – a Great Room anchored by a cut-stone fireplace at one end and the kitchen at the other - is the heart of the house. Matching armchairs and sofas surround a big upholstered coffee table in front of the fire, all in serene blues and creams. In the daytime, huge windows flood the room with sunlight and astonishing views, and doors open to terraces on either side.
The dining table stands just behind the couch, under the high vaulted ceiling shared with the living room; steps away the ceiling, criss-crossed with rough-hewn beams, drops to foster a sense of warmth and containment in the kitchen. This is a kitchen in which a home cook or professional chef would be equally happy. Luxury appliances, a center island with a prep sink and a wine cooler, a breakfast bar and ample counter space make cooking a treat. Many a joyful meal is spent within the interlocked spaces of the Great Room: a glad progression from kitchen to dining table to fireside, leavened with stories of the day gone by and plans for the day ahead. Sconces and big table lamps throughout the room provide light in the evening, and firelight dances across the happy faces of those assembled.
Shooting Star Cabin 17 is a true family haven, with plenty of space in which to find quiet and privacy and plenty of convivial gathering spots as well. A hallway off of the kitchen leads to a stylish hang out room. Here, star charts map the Wyoming sky and a long, plush sectional couch beckons gamers, readers and movie-watchers alike. Cabin 17's living and sleeping wings embrace a big stone courtyard that is a great draw year round. Outside, the fresh mountain air is more invigorating than a cup of coffee. An outdoor dining table and a gas grill speak of cookouts in the long golden evenings of July and August; the large hot tub calls for joyful shindigs under the brilliant winter night sky, champagne chilling nearby in the snow. Steps lead from the terrace down to the smooth lawn and the creek.
Cabin 17 has a very large and inviting master suite set in an annex of its own. Soft, rich fabrics and creamy drapes, white linens and a wool-carpeted floor contrast pleasingly with the solid stonework and bright dancing flames of the gas hearth. The master bedroom wing angles toward the creek - and with the windows flung wide, the sound of the tumbling water fills the room. The masterbath is spacious and luxurious, paneled in painted wood, with double sinks, a long soaking tub set under a mullioned window and a separate, walk-in shower.
Built-in, robin's egg bookcases and drawers on the main landing frame a desk and window with a glorious view indeed. The landing serves as office for Cabin 17, and manages to be both private and open at once, a perfect retreat for reading and working. A door off the landing leads to a sunlit, carpeted guest room with a king size bed and a private bath. In this guest bathroom, there are double sinks, a big, glass-walled shower and a separate water closet. Wallpaper and twigged mirrors lend texture and interest; as with everything at Cabin 17, the fixtures are of sterling quality.
A corridor with windows on either side forms a “sky bridge” to the next guest with two full size beds, a charming space with berths for four. This guests room has its own bath as well, with double sinks, a shower/tub combo and a separate water closet.
A wonderful suite - clear and bright, and spacious enough for a family - stands over the garage. A king bed under the eaves is flanked by two full beds. A big closet and ample dresser provide plenty of clothes storage, and there is a private bathroom with a shower. Windows frame panoramic views of Teton Village and the ski mountain. Clear colors, soft carpeting and lots of light make this guest suite a luxurious retreat.TripAdvisor property ID 4445691...Read more
