Prairies End is a weathered, 200-year-old barn that was moved from Ontario and converted to a dazzling, airy house with the lofty aura of a church. It faces north toward the Tetons, and inside, sun gilds the smooth heart pine floors. The massive, rough-hewn barn beams are like the pillars and trusses of a rustic cathedral. The heart of the house is a long, two story great room, anchored on each end by a wood-burning stone fireplace and a sitting area; the dining table occupies the center. Huge twig chandeliers hang from the high wood ceiling. The kitchen, with a Wolf four-burner gas range, is beside the great room. A covered porch and open deck extend from the kitchens French doors for outdoor dining, entertaining and the simple enjoyment of the extravagant view.
Prairie’s End feels both old and modern, rustic and luxurious; it is a house full of color and light. There are leather couches, saffron walls, rural antiques, rough wood wainscoting, vivid oil paintings and striking sculptures. A bridge crosses the open space of the great room and connects the two sides of the top floor. A first-floor library has a fireplace, a game table, and walls of wooden bookshelves; while upstairs is a small, well-equipped office.
In the handsome master bedroom, a king four-poster bed is spread with a hand-blocked quilt; a soft leather armchair and ottoman wait beside the gas fireplace and an old grandfather clock marks the hours with a mellow chime. The splendid stone-floored master bathroom has a three-headed rainfall shower, a jetted tub and double sinks.
There are three guest bedrooms and a sleeping loft inside the main house of Prairie’s End. One guest room is on the ground floor, with a queen size bed and private bath; the rest are upstairs. The upstairs guest bedroom has a queen bed, and its own bathroom as well. The loft – used for hay storage long ago – is now a warm and welcoming room set high in the house, with twin beds, a pull-out couch and a television.
Tucked in beside Prairie’s End is a romantic 1850’s, one-bedroom cabin transported to its spectacular spot from West Virginia. The little cabin seems rooted in its grassy setting, and looks out far over the long green valley to the Tetons. The guest cabin is entirely up-to-date, with a full bath upstairs, and a sitting area with a wood stove downstairs next to a tidy little kitchen. A path leads back to the main house from the cabin; and from there, the grand panorama of Jackson Hole stretches away. Moose, coyote, elk, eagle and fox cross the great valley, mountains skim the big starry sky. There are endless opportunities for skiing, snowshoeing, hiking, and fishing around Prairie’s End, and the vibrant town of Jackson is just a short drive away.
