TCCGJH Shooting Star Cabin - Front Elevation

Shooting Star Cabin 1, A Reintroduction

Dear Friends-

The Clear Creek Group is fortunate to represent a fine collection of distinctive homes across the vast Jackson Hole valley. Cabins, condos, lodges, villas… however they differ in design and decor, they are all under the loving care of The Clear Creek Group. Each and every visitor to those homes is promised personal, professional service, and immaculate accommodations.

The holiday season is a time that I find most humbling. So many come to The Clear Creek Group, and trust us with their festivities – it’s a dream come true for my partners and I as we truly love sharing the magic of a Jackson Hole winter with guests. Santa visits, sleigh rides, ski delivery, holiday musical shows, private chefs, dog sledding, teepee dinners… Jackson Hole is a kids-of-all-ages magical place.

The Clear Creek Group was founded by three new but close friends eleven short years ago, who found a common bond in our vision. From the beginning, our guiding principle was to provide a level of service and home care that was not a part of the mainstream “vacation rental” service (even the words sound bad!). I am proud to say that we have succeeded in this endeavor.

Another hope was that our business and professional lives would blur together, so to speak – and that happened right off the bat! We shared our friendship with homeowners and guests… and then they too became friends. We are lucky that the wonderful staff at TCCG feels the way we do about it, and happily steps in to make guests and homeowners feel a cherished part of the family.

It’s always bittersweet when we have to say “so long” to friends who move on to other chapters in their lives, and sell their Jackson Hole homes. But when the new homeowner asks us to stay on, and continue to take care of the property… WOW! That is the absolute best affirmation of the work we are trying to do.

Shooting Star Cabin 1 is one such property: a beloved family retreat that has become a treasured Jackson Hole refuge for new owners. If you are familiar with Shooting Star Cabin 1, you will recognize some of the early furnishings and delight, as we did, with the new touches! The new owners made the house their own, and, if possible, even better – how did they improve on perfection?

Shooting Star is becoming a vibrant, lively neighborhood of homes, cabins, lodges and estates. Right next to Teton Village, it is a place where you can pull in to your driveway and offer a wave and a howdy to your neighbors, and maybe toast the day’s adventures with them under the stars.

As always, the cabin is fully equipped and gorgeously furnished… and if anything is missing, just tell us. We’ll find what you need and get it right on over!

I hope you enjoy the new photographs of Shooting Star Cabin 1 as much as we enjoyed creating them! Thank you for being a part of The Clear Creek Group – for reading our posts, following our Facebook, being our friend. Stop in and see us. The coffee is always fresh, and the smiles always welcoming.

Happy Holidays!

Love,

TCCGJH Fish Creek Lodge - Great Room with great Tetons view

Welcome To Fish Creek Lodge 1

Hello all, and happy fall!

You probably know by now that The Clear Creek Group takes fabulous care of houses as well as guests! And because of this, we have been able to blend our personal and professional lives to such an extent that our clients and Clear Creek Group guests often become our friends. We are very proud of this.

The new Fish Creek Lodge 1 is a perfect example. We have grown to know and love the owners of this gorgeous property. As I photographed the house the other day with the team, I felt the care and attention the owners had put into it: (The incredible art! The collection of antique door knockers to welcome guests in the entry hall! The vintage Jackson Hole postcards!) and was overwhelmed with gratitude for their friendship – and for the confidence they have in our company and our caretaking department.

Fish Creek Lodge 1 is great house, a house with heart, and it is ready for guests right now; a perfect home base for fall adventures. Autumn is a magnificent time to visit Jackson Hole, and this house, set at the base of the vast grounds of Shooting Star – is the perfect location to access the park, the wildlife, the town and the village.

It’s a rustic, spacious home, with an extraordinary collection of art and artifacts that invigorates every light-filled space, engaging the eye and mind. Everything is mde with care and craftsmanship behind the Lodge’s barnwood exterior. A double-height living and dining area is anchored to earth by a huge wood-burn

ing stone fireplace, equilibrium for the vertiginous view outside the floor-to-ceiling windows. Paragliders and bald eagles soar by, and the bright red tram lifts hikers and skiers to the summit of Rendezvous peak. Ample soft seating invites family, friends or newlyweds (it’s the ultimate romantic getaway) together in a wide, fireside circle, or for meals at the long dining table.A TV above the hearth is cleverly concealed behind a rectangle of weathered boards. Just off the living room, a corridor leads to a carpeted guest bedroom and its private bathroom, as well as the laundry, a powder room and the garage.

The kitchen, open to the great room, is a lovely mix of rustic details and gleaming modernity. Classic barn lights illuminate a marble countertop; old hand-hewn beams and stained wood cabinetry frame a fully-outfitted space with double ovens, refrigeration and microwave drawers, and a built-in wine cooler.

Honestly, there is not a thing missing in this house. The owners seem to have anticipated every need and move of Clear Creek Group guests. Cooking in the kitchen will be a pleasure as every pot, pan, piece of equipment or table linens you could think of has been provided. And if they forgot it, we’ll get it for you!

Doors flanking the living room fireplace open to the stone terrace and the sound of the merry little creek tumbling by. A covered seating area has a gas fireplace, and the outdoor dining table and a roomy hot tub wait right around the corner, with a magnificent backdrop of mountains, ski slopes and sky.
The terraces are abundantly and comfortably furnished for maximum coziness, while marveling at the stunning views with breakfast coffee or evening cocktails.

Upstairs at this luxury Jackson Hole vacation home are two bedrooms, with a den between them that can easily and comfortably convert to a third sleeping space. The master bedroom is over the garage, a big room with a gas fireplace and a seating area in front of a picture window. An airy paneled bathroom with double sinks, private water closet, glass walled shower and soaking tub stands beside a walk in closet.

The second bedroom has two upholstered twin beds that can be converted to a king bed. A walk-through closet leads to the guest bath, with double sinks and a shower.

Fish Creek Lodge 1 is truly in an ideal spot – right in the middle of Jackson Hole’s wild wonderland, a mile from Grand Teton National Park, and yet walking distance to the restaurants, shops and entertainment of downtown Jackson and Teton Village. In fact, the Shooting Star shuttle will pick you up at your door and take you right to the slopes.

And here’s the kicker: The Clear Creek Group has another Shooting Star house right next door. Fish Creek Lodge 2! Different in design and feeling from Lodge 1, but wonderful in its own right. I will post about that one soon… but just imagine renting both homes, side by side, for an extended family reunion, a getaway with lots of friends, or a corporate retreat. I mean really, can you beat that?

Love,

P.S. I can’t forget to thank Gordon Gregory for this stunning photography-Thanks, Gordon!

TCCGJH Chef Steph Fries

“Pull up a chair. Take a taste. Come join us. Life is so endlessly delicious.” –Ruth Reichl

Dear friends,

Since the beginning, I have wanted to share experiences from my heart on this blog; like my ever-growing passion for the area, the people who have come into my life, and of course, the food. Ah, the food. How anyone can cook like the outstanding chefs I have met in Jackson Hole is beyond me! Each is both artisan and magician. In their hands, ingredients become something more luscious than the sum of their parts. It’s alchemy.

Jarrett Schwartz, Ariel Mann, Rick Sordahl and Eddie Kolsky are great friends and incredible chefs all, and I continue to be inspired by their inventive cooking. I hold out hope that some of it will rub off on me! We all hike the same trails, after all, we see the same sunsets, and have now been bound together by the love we share for this extraordinary place…

The big news is that Jarrett’s beautiful baby did finally arrive, to the dumbstruck adoration of the new parents; and Eddie Kolsky (broken hearts scattered across the valley) has become engaged to Liz. They’re getting married in September, that golden, glorious month. Much love, and many congratulations to you all!

As the years pass and The Clear Creek Group’s circle of friends continues to grow, much is changing around here. But what isn’t changing is the way people come together and form unbreakable friendships in Jackson Hole. The number of friends I have made here – and their incredible diversity – will never cease to amaze me. Life is busy and often I can’t keep in touch with people I’ve met here as often as I’d like, but somehow they continue to tolerate and love me, which is both humbling and wonderful.

Stephanie Sias and I met at my birthday party one year (I was turning 35. Well, 45. Well, age doesn’t matter – that’s what I was turning….. hummm?). We have become fast friends, and I count myself one of her many “number-one fans.” After meeting her beloved Spence at Amangiri in Utah, Stephanie and Spence moved to Jackson together, and the two of them became a part of Amangani extended family, where our son Chandler has worked for three years.

tccgjh_chef_steph_1Stephanie is a little sprite of a gal, cute as a button, with a melt-your-heart smile. Her passion for cooking is inspired by the beauty and bounty of the area. She seamlessly incorporates a vast assortment of locally sourced food – wild game, fish, meat, cheese, vegetables, fruit and eggs. One thing’s for sure – we certainly do not live in a food desert. Jackson Hole is more like a food wellspring.

Stephanie used to be the sous chef at Snake River Grill. At one of Jackson’s best and most demanding restaurants, she held her own and then some. She left Snake River Grill to follow her heart as a personal chef: and though I am sure her colleagues at the Grill were sad to see her go, there were hoots and hollers up and down the valley from devotees overjoyed to hear that she could be reserved to create stunning in-home meals. I can’t wait to have Stephanie over to cook for my partners, family and friends. Bring it on, Steph!!!

Stephanie’s repertoire is incredibly diverse. She is cooking Passover dinner for our community rabbi, and can fix a mean mac- n-cheese or Frito pie. She can head in the other direction entirely and cook with such subtlety and flair that what else could you call it but haute cuisine? She even keeps a boatload of hungry families’ refrigerators full with healthy, delectable, bi-weekly meals. What’s not to love???

So, here’s the deal: whether you want a lazy, lakeside picnic with your true love, supper ready and waiting in your refrigerator after one busy day after another, a six-course, sit-down dinner in your Clear Creek vacation home, or just a cocktails and hors d’oeuvres party where you can have as much fun as your guests, Chef Sias is one of our top Clear Creek Group recommendations.

Let me tell you one of the things I was most excited about. See the gorgeous, mouth-watering dishes below? The ones Stephanie prepared for the photo shoot? Well, we got to eat them!! I wish I could give you a spoonful to taste right from the screen. Zay were…’ow shall I say eet… Scrumptious. Divine. (I know you love my French accent).

But never fear, you can experience Stephanie’s cooking for yourself: either book her directly, or let us make all the arrangements.

Thanks to Gordon Gregory for the wonderful photos, and to The Clear Creek Group Pines Garden Unit 4050, one of our newest additions where Gordon shot, Stephanie cooked, and I ate! In closing, I wish you peace, a bountiful table and the blossoming joy of the season. Happy Easter, happy Passover!

Much love, and bon appétit –

Chef Stephanie Sias; 304-939-2009, chefsias@gmail.com

Chef’s current favorite. How appropriate for the season! It’s a Persian curried lamb dish with rice. Chef recommends a bottle of Luigi Bosca- De Sangre, a wonderful full bodied red wine. I recommend two bottles- opening the first then…..

Toss cubed lamb (stew meat) with salt, black pepper, cinnamon, allspice, cayenne, and apple cider vinegar and let it sit overnight, at least 8 hours. The next day, heat a skillet and get a nice dark sear on the meat. Set the meat aside. Then, dice one white onion and about a tablespoon of fresh ginger and sweat in EVOO over low-med heat in the same pan as you seared the lamb in.

Next add in 6 T curry powder and toast in the pan. Add the lamb back in with 1 cup vegetable stock and bring to a simmer. Next bring 1.5 cups of toasted cashews and add to the pan, turn to low heat and let stew.

TCCGJH Pines Garden 4050 Rear Elevation

The Clear Creek Group Welcomes Pines Garden 4050

Hello dear friends!

We have a new house in The Clear Creek Group portfolio that I’m very excited about: Pines Gardens 4050.

The location is nothing short of fantastic. Located on the Westbank, The Pines and Aspens are two side-by-side residential communities, tied together at their entrances by an absolutely charming retail area. It has a vibrant, village ethos, with chic shops and restaurants, and it’s home to a few business as well – a bank, a fitness center, Aspens Market, and a well-provisioned liquor and wine store. The collection of purveyors also includes a charming coffee shop; you know, one of those you never want to leave. So, in short, you never have to leave!

The Pines Club, located at the entrance to the residential community, is a private club that offers Clear Creek Group guests access to its dining, golf and cross country skiing. The homes in the Pines are quite varied, and include very generous homes and smaller units, like the two Pines Garden Units we have.

The Pines sits right smack in the middle of everything the Westbank has to offer. You might know I just LOVE the bike path in general, and here it unfurls like a ribbon along side the main road and connects Pines Garden Unit 4050 to the village of the Pines and Aspens, Grand Teton National Park, Teton Village, some fabulously fun restaurants – the Q Roadhouse and Calico – and the hip little community of Wilson.

To me, 4050 is as perfect for a family as it is for a couple. The interiors were designed by Katie Binger and the talented team at Dwelling, who together created a gorgeous, light-filled retreat with minimum clutter, and maximum comfort and flexibility. They snuck in plenty of snoozing spots too, like the pull-out sofa in the living room, the upholstered window seat in the master, and the trundle bed in the guest room. Because Winnie the Pooh said it best: “Let’s begin by taking a smallish nap or two…”

I think you’d best end the day on a high note, too. Private chefs love to prepare meals for you in your own kitchen – so put up your feet by the fire and let Chef Stephanie Sias, or one of the many talented chefs in Jackson, do all the work. Then dine like a king (and don’t wash the dishes afterwards)! (TCCG Approved Private Chefs)

We are honored and delighted to be able to include Pines Garden 4050 in both our vacation and caretaking portfolios. I cannot begin tell you how wonderful and talented our Caretaking and Guest Services teams are! Their keen eyes and detailed checklist ensure that the every property is looked after with the best of care when not occupied, and in absolute top shape, with many welcoming touches, when homeowners or guests are slated to arrive. Some examples: they might build a snowman at the front door, and put a lantern on his arm to light the way. They’ll have the fridge stocked with your favorite things. They might leave an unexpected shopping tote full of presents and craft supplies for the kids. Oh, and that batch of fresh baked chocolate chip cookies waiting on the kitchen counter! Absolutely divine! Whatever it is, when you walk into your Clear Creek Group home, something special awaits. Because, boy howdy, life is meant to be savored!

Have a peek at the new images and description below. Many thanks to Gordon Gregory Photo for taking these wonderful images! It was a pleasure to photograph this house. I hope you enjoy the images as much as we enjoyed our time visiting PG 4050 when we were taking them! It is, indeed, a special property. Before I close I just have to tell you that, while we were shooting, we were delightfully distracted by the calls of the osprey as they started building their summer homes and we had several moose stop by to check out what we were up to!

 

Take good care-

Much love,

TCCGJH Spirit Dance Lodge Entry

Welcome to Spirit Dance Lodge

tccgjh_spirit_dance_vistas

 

It has been a magical winter so far, and today is a bright, cold, brilliant day. The sky is bluer than blue, the sun’s scattering armloads of glitter over the deep snow (77” on the mountaintops!). When you’re on the slopes, it seems like you’re skiing through fairy dust: turn your tips and the sparkles fly.

“If you’re not in Jackson Hole right now,
by George you should be!”

Where to stay? The Clear Creek Group has a new, and positively heavenly, addition to our portfolio of luxury Jackson Hole rental homes. Spirit Dance Lodge is its name, and unforgettable family vacation retreat is its game. It’s a stunning property in winter or summer (or spring or fall, for that matter). Take a look:

tccgjh_spirit_dance_front_elevationHigh above the valley floor, Spirit Dance Lodge cascades down the hillside, its windows so brimming with mountains and sky that from inside, the house seems to be soaring, like a hawk on an updraft.

Decks and terraces wrap all around the home so that almost every room has an outdoor aspect. Set within a wildlife sanctuary and the Spring Creek Ranch resort, Spirit Dance Lodge is close to Jackson Hole’s world-class outdoor adventure, entertainment and dining. The renowned restaurants of Amangani and the Granary are just down the road; and yet Spirit Dance Lodge truly feels like a world apart, a sky-high sanctuary.

tccgjh_spirit_dance_great_room

Spring Creek is a three-story house, and the front door opens to the middle floor, where a rustic stairwell leads both up and down, and a stone-floored foyer spills into a huge, vaulted living room. The Tetons come right in through the floor-to-ceiling windows; a fire blazes in the great stone hearth. Beautiful oriental rugs and the burnished butterscotch of fine antiques give a great feeling of warmth and welcome to this sumptuous Jackson Hole vacation rental.

The kitchen is ample, open and very well-equipped: a wine cooler, a full complement of glassware, china and cookware, a Viking range, and, of course, a door to the great wide deck. A long wood dining table stands at one end of the living area under a bank of glass; stupendous views are always invited to dinner. Just off of the kitchen is the cozy office. A long worktable offers plenty of space to spread out, and a wood-burning fireplace immediately bestows comfort and peace. The office has a large and luxurious private bath, and can easily become a comfortable guest room when the pull-out couch is extended.

Upstairs, a spacious, carpeted loft above the dining area has an enticing pair of chaise lounges facing a TV and bookshelves. A small deck over the front door lets you have a close look at wildlife passing by outside.

tccgjh_spirit_dance_master_bedroomA foyer leads to the master bedroom, where a log wall acts as headboard for the four-poster bed, and a gas fireplace stands next to a row of mountain-filled windows and a door to the deck.

The master bath is actually a suite of rooms: a sink area with a U-shaped vanity and plenty of cabinetry; a bath area with a very large soaking tub and walk in shower, and a private water closet with toilet and bidet. The huge walk-in closet has two entrances.

Across the landing, the carpeted children’s room is a magical space, with a white-and-gold cast iron queen bedstead, and two twin beds tucked into windowed gables. Hand-painted furniture lends a storybook charm. The children’s room has its own bath with a tub/shower combo.

tccgjh_spirit_dance_saunatccgjh_spirit_dance_steam_room

On Spirit Dance Lodge’s bottom floor (though with a view more altitudinous than the highest skyscraper), two spacious, lovely bedrooms with gas fireplaces share the level with the cedar sauna, the stone and tile steam room, a TV area and the laundry. Each guest bedroom has a large and luxurious private bath, with double sinks and walk-in shower. Just outside, another large terrace wraps around the house. An oval “alcove” of the terrace holds the fire pit – the ultimate spot for marshmallow-roasting, star-gazing and story telling.

 

If you can bear to leave the property, Spring Creek Ranch has lots of amenities to offer, and countless others are nearby. In winter, there are horse-drawn sleigh rides, miles of cross-country ski and snowshoe trails, wildlife safaris. Downhill skiing, dog sledding, snow tubing. In the summer, horseback riding, rock climbing, hiking, hot air ballooning – the possibilities are endless. The Clear Creek Group can arrange any kind of adventure for you, whether solo or guided; say the word and a private chef will have a feast waiting for you when you return. And the very next morning, the magic of a Jackson Hole holiday begins all over again. See the rest of the photos and book your stay at Spirit Dance Lodge Today!

As for today, the sun is still pouring down, filling the valley with pale gold light; accenting the snow’s blue shadows. My dogs are leaping over themselves with excitement to get outside. It is a grand idea, guys. I think I’ll strap on my snowshoes and head out with you into this gorgeous, glorious winter day.

Much Love,
Betsy

A good time to say it again…..My heart still belongs to Jackson Hole.

Dearest Friends;

As everyone who has fallen in love knows, there are few experiences which match the intensity of the early days of a love affair. The world is suddenly very much alive. Music takes on special meaning. Sunrises and sunsets become transcendent experiences. And the most common everyday activities like going for a walk, having a picnic at String Lake or sharing a meal are infused with new energy and happiness. Life seems very simple and its possibilities limitless.

Even more fortunate are those who learn that love evolves from the giddiness and exhilaration of its early moments and deepens as it is confronted and challenged by the responsibilities and complications of life, and that enduring love not only provides a sanctuary in difficult times but a source of inspiration to create live of distinction. Amen to that!

Our relationship with Jackson Hole has paralleled and indeed nurtured our relationship with one another. It began with an overwhelming attraction to the physical things: to the clear and cool streams that run next to forested trails, the towering peaks whose tips turn pink with the arrival of the morning sun, the wide valley with its long vistas, and the vivid yet gentle light which seems to cast the entire valley into a perpetual dawn; to night skies so dark, and full of stars that bands of the Milky Way appear within reach; to the rugged beauty of the residents with faces flushed from a recent decent from a mountain top or lined with years of outfitting; and, of course, to the spectacular food ranging from simple chuck wagon fare, curried lamp stew or a Kurobuta Pork Chop and a glass of Brunello. Dining in Jackson Hole is small town world class dining.

Our early infatuation with Jackson Hole soon evolved into something much deeper and more profound as we got to know the people who were born in the valley or have chosen to make it their home. It is said that the world can be divided into two camps: those who live to work and those who work to live. The residents of Jackson Hole are definitely of the latter variety, but it would be incorrect to conclude that this means they are not committed to what they do. To the contrary, creating a mountain paradise on the stony floor and granite buttes devoid of agricultural resources is no easy task. And yet the people in Jackson Hole have figured out how to take their work seriously, and they never seem to lose sight of why they chose to live their lives here in the first place and how lucky they are to have succeeded in doing so.

To a person, they are determined to live life by the rules of their own making. Many have left their homes across the country and followed their hearts to Jackson Hole even when it was contrary to common sense and conventional wisdom to do so. They smile and laugh easily and often. They cherish not only the physical beauty of their surroundings but the cleanliness and safety of their community and neighborhoods. It is thus fitting and not at all surprising that the gentle and peaceful residents of Jackson Hole, to a person, tell the visitor who is inquiring about what it takes to make a living in Jackson Hole so special to look no further than the happy and unconcerned faces of school children as they ride bikes on the Pathways and who are blessed to grow up in an environment free of crime and fear and where seeing a moose in the backyard is an everyday joy.

Nowhere are the special qualities of Jackson Hole more apparent than in the more than 80 restaurants scattered throughout the Jackson Hole valley and the people who own and work in them as well as the private chefs who invent creative fare for their guests served up with a personal touch. Unlike most of the United States, which has become overrun by restaurant chains and where even independent restaurants are frequently owned by anonymous investors and partnerships, restaurants in Jackson Hole are often family affairs or collaborations formed by a few friends, and the owners are present and working in the restuarants every day. Within no time at all, the visitor feels a personal connection to particular restaurants and the people who own them as well as to the landscape and wildlife.

Philip and I have lived in Jackson Hole through good times and bad times in our lives. In the former, Jackson Hole always brings us closer together; in the latter, it repairs the jagged edges and resets our emotional and spiritual compass. The feeling is best described by the Irish poet my grandparents loved so much, William Butler Yeats in “The Lake Isle of Innisfree”:

And I shall have some peace
there, for peace comes dropping
slow,
Dropping from the veils of
the morning to where the cricket
sings;
There midnight’s all a
glimmer, and noon a purple
glow,
And evening full of the linnet’s
wings.

I will arise and go now, for
always night and day
I hear lake water lapping with
low sounds by the shore;
While I stand on the roadway,
or on the pavements grey,
I hear it in the deep heart’s core.

After living in Jackson Hole for 10 years, coming here first as a child myself and then summers spent on ranches, trails, painting rocks in streams and in the warm embrace of the Presbyterian Church of Jackson Hole, I finally understand the source of this phenomenon: it is, of course, the people who live here, and they are the real focus of the upcoming blogs. To be sure, over the next few weeks, the blog will be filled with wonderful recipes which our chefs graciously shared as well as beautiful photographs of Jackson Hole, its restaurants, chefs, families and food, but the enduring magic and allure of Jackson Hole lies in its prople and their stories which follow. We feel very fortunate to have gotten to know these people and count them among our friends. They center us and ground us in what is important and good. And by living their lives creatively, passionately and joyfully, and sharing those lives with us, they have rekindled our faith born many years ago that life in indeed very simple and its possibilities limitless. We owe them more than they will ever know, and dedicate these upcoming blogs to them with gratitude and affection.

Love,
Betsy

Welcome, Spring, to Jackson Hole-
A love letter to the season.

Welcome, Spring, to Jackson Hole. We’re a snow-loving town, but you make our hearts sing. That sweet light air like a cowboy’s kiss. The lemony green of newborn leaves. The birdsong, rising again. It’s true love. You’ll see: walk around the streets of town, hike the trails, sit beside a rushing river, and you’ll see it. Everybody’s smiling. The earth is stirring. And there are flowers – flowers – coming up through the snow.

We love you, Spring. Come again, and again, and again.

To get in a Spring frame of mind:

First, look at these spectacular pictures by Henry Holdsworth, a visionary Jackson Hole photographer.

Next, toast Spring’s arrival with a long, slow breath of fresh air.

Finally, pick a new flower for an old love.

Love,

Betsy

Spring Is Here, Soak It Up!

 

A wonderful thing is a Jackson Hole spring –
The skiing is easy, the snow’s deep and birds sing
The slopes are not crowded, the lift lines not long
And dinner reservations can be had for a song.
As spring turns to summer the rivers they roar
The cutthroat trout’s jumping, the air balloons soar
This place where we live is a paradise for sure –
In a Clear Creek Group home, that paradise is yours.

 

Call us at 877-427-3400, and we’ll find you an extraordinary Jackson Hole property to call your own for a week, a month, or a whole, heavenly season.
