We can all agree- Teton Valley is Idaho’s best kept secret. Sitting on the western facing slope of the Teton Range, it acts as a true hub for commuters, recreationalists, ranchers, and vacationers. Locals know the valley boasts a direct shot to Yellowstone National Park and immediate access to the back side of Grand Teton National Park without the tourist grip we’ve become accustomed to on the eastern slope. The valley’s economy is subsequently taking a turn towards recreational tourism, so it’s no wonder that real estate should be considered gold. Teton Valley is comprised of six quiet towns starting on the north end in Tetonia and continuing south to the town of Victor, all relatively close in proximity yet diverse in their allure.
The town of Victor rests at the base of Teton Pass, initially a quaint small town yet bursting at the seams with unsuspecting breweries and restaurants. It’s easy to say big things are coming out of Victor, Idaho. On any given Thursday throughout the summer Victor City Park is erupting with excitement for Music on Main, a free concert series for all ages. You’re likely to see local favorites including Everest Momo Shack serving up plates. Earlier this month, Music on Main released their results on a zero-waste initiative in which they were able to eliminate plastic cup waste in just two years. Victor’s impact on Teton Valley is enthusiastically growing and the real estate market it following suite
Victor’s real estate scene is diverse with choices ranging from lavish gated neighborhoods to affordable town-homes. Victor is home to Teton Springs, a country club boasting a world class 18-hole golf course among many other luxury amenities that both guests and members have access to. Teton Springs can be a primary residence or a vacation home depending on the preference. Either way, those looking for indulgent living can find their place among this resort.
Heading north toward Yellowstone onward, a small yet historic downtown strip quickly slows down traffic along HWY 33. The town of Driggs welcomes all, though it’s arguably most attractive to sporting communities. At the town’s epicenter, Teton Rock Climbing offers gym space for all ages. Whether it’s an after-school program, birthday party, or a place to exercise in the dead of winter, TRC has it covered. Alternatively, many locals find themselves taking a right on Ski Hill Road towards Grand Targhee Resort in Alta, Wyoming. During winter months, Skiers and snowboarders alike line the trails, both groomed and untouched, for powder-turns all winter long. At the base of the slopes, onlookers can grab a bite to eat at the resorts Trap Bar and Grill. On dry months, Grand Targhee Resort is home to impressive mountain biking and hiking terrain.
Beyond its accessibility to a multitude of sports, Driggs is home to Tributary, formerly known as Huntsman Springs. Tributary effortlessly exudes luxury- a neighborhood that balances rustic with contemporary exteriors, and immaculate interiors with mountain views. Here recreationalists can enjoy a few rounds on the David Mcklay Kidd Golf Course or catch their breath on a two-mile-long elevated board walk.
Heading into Tetonia on a sunny day, the rolling hills are radiant and golden as far as the eye can see- still showcasing a western-facing view of The Tetons. For generations, the majority of Tetonia’s acreage has been used for farming, so consequently most of real estate falls just outside of town. One of Tetonia’s most stunning community’s rests on the canyon rim and is in walking distance of the Teton River. Here, River Rim Ranch residents can enjoy world class fly fishing, the privacy of a gated neighborhood, and a guest lodge.
