A stylish panorama: Fish Creek Lodge 8 faces the world-famous slopes of Jackson Hole Mountain Resort from a coveted site within Shooting Star, only a short stroll away from lively Teton Village. Designed by acclaimed Jackson architect John Carney, the Lodge achieves rustic luxury within a modern barn aesthetic. Sheathed in weathered barnwood, the exterior blends into the backdrop of the Tetons. Wood furnishings are sleek and polished. Contemporary artwork re imagines Western motifs as modern.
A cathedral ceiling, framed in rustic timbers, caps the gracious great room. A towering stone fireplace creates a warm anchor and the picture windows framing the Tetons accentuate the soaring scale. A tiered chandelier of hand-blown globes hovers like a halo above the flowing space. Ingenious nooks for firewood flank the fireplace, and a TV hides in a barnwood panel above the mantel. The encircling living area features matching slipcovered sofas and accent chairs. Set behind the sofa, a console and chair creates a sleek workspace fireside or dinner-party buffet. Square ottomans – upholstered in elephant-colored leather – stand sentinel at the picture window. At the southern end of the great room, a rustic dining table comfortably seats eight in upholstered chairs. Hardwood floors line the living area – accented by area rugs – while carpet makes the bedrooms cozy.
In the adjoining gourmet kitchen, barnwood cabinetry complements granite countertops. A Viking stove – replete with red knobs – caters to serious chefs, as does the collection of teal Le Creuset cookware. A kitchen island houses a microwave and wine fridge, and doubles as a breakfast bar with stools. The metal backsplash complements the industrial pendants. The kitchen enjoys a sightline to the Tetons, thanks to the glass doors opening on to the terrace. Outside, woven armchairs and a hot tub provide amphitheater viewing of the mountains.
Back inside, a guest suite, linked to the living area, boasts a chesterfield headboard and king bedframe – an elegant palette on which patterned accents play: A barnwood bench, a cashmere throw blanket, pillows woven in persimmon and purple thread, matching nightstands prop modern lamps. The ensuite bathroom features marble countertops and a double vanity atop a barnwood console. Down the hall, a laundry, powder room and attached two-car garage offer functionality.
The second floor offers two more bedrooms and a media room. The master bedroom, perched above the garage, features expansive views of the Snake River Valley. A gas fireplace adds intimacy, as does the stylish seating area. A flat screen TV, mounted on the wall, faces the plush king bed. The master bath pairs a soaking tub with a spacious glass shower.
The second bedroom, designed with children in mind, offers two twin bunk beds made elegant by chesterfield headboards and studded edges. The neighboring media room can become a third bedroom thanks to two twin beds that also have twin trundles.
At Fish Creek Lodge 8, the many amenities found inside are rivaled only by the myriad of outdoor diversions. A bike path borders the property, allowing for car-free travel between key points. Shooting Star sits within walking (or short shuttle ride in winter) distance of Teton Village and only a mile way from the southern entrance to Grand Teton National Park, making it the ideal launch pad for natural and cultural immersion. Jackson, a magical town ringed in restaurants, shops and art galleries, is a short drive away, as is Wilson, a hamlet with a country store, beloved bar and eatery. Whether fly fishing or horseback riding, mountain biking or backcountry skiing, the Lodge allows you to choose your own adventure.
