In the beautiful Star Valley nestled between the soaring Bridger, Teton, and Caribou mountain ranges lies Rusty Elk Lodge. A quiet retreat built with the utmost in creativity and thought. A scenic drive along the Snake River Canyon leads to nearby Jackson Hole, Grand Tetons, and Yellowstone.

The local area is home to adventure of all kinds. From river rafting in the summer to snowmobiling in the winter, make Rusty Elk your final destination or a stop along the way. 

Rusty Elk is a custom home that was designed with the details in mind. Rustic and unique design elements dot the architecture of the home. Local materials were used to honor the history and style of the area. Most importantly, we embrace making our guests feel at home and comfortable. Kick your shoes off, throw your feet up, and relax in style is the vibe you will find here. 

The Retreat is the studio guest house featuring a downstairs queen bed, living area, and kitchen.  Up the ladder you will find a queen bed, twin bed, and a fun perch that overlooks the valley.

A Perfect Escape

A perfect escape that we were looking for in perfectly detailed & cozy space that we thoroughly enjoyed! The surrounding/panoramic views are out of this world. The outdoor space to hang out with fire pit, surrounding mountain views and all the fixings that Kim provided for us. On that note, Kim was super responsive and helpful to any questions we had and got whatever we needed right away. Can’t thank her enough’ — thanks for the incredible stay!

Fabulous Place to Relax

What a fabulous place to relax! The house layout is well thought-out for relaxing and comfort. And almost everything inside is high-end. Like a very nice worn in leather couch and chair in front of gas fire and TV with satellite and Netflix. Great bed, natural wood everywhere, gorgeous light and plumbing fixtures, etc. it’s a great place! A few things of note: - The property is close to the Salt River which is great public access to fishing with less people than fishing areas near Jackson. We enjoyed the nearby rivers so much we didn’t even make it to Jackson. - We learned the only way to purchase alcohol in the town of Thayne is at the bars. Apparently bars in WY also function as liquor stores

Amazing Cabin Quiet Valley

This is an amazing cabin nestled into a quiet valley that is surrounded by breath taking views. This cabin was a large part of what made our trip so amazing and it provides everything you could think of to make your trip a memorable one. If you are looking to provide your family or just yourself a top of the line experience this is the property for you.

Place to Call Home

What a beautiful cottage and location. While we spent most of your time exploring GTNP, it was good to know we had such a nice place to come “home” to. Would definitely book again.

Where Do I Even Begin??

WOW. Where do I even begin?? Kim’s property was absolutely gorgeous! Everything was sparkling clean upon our arrival and Kim was quick to respond to my messages. She also checked in several times to make sure we were settled in. All of the beds were super comfortable, the kitchen had everything one might need to prepare a meal. There were several tips about where to dine, shop and what areas to explore and the extra little goodies for s'mores was such a nice touch! We weren’t able to use the fire pit due to the wind but we still had a fabulous time. The views in the morning were amazing and the! No matter how cold it is outside, make sure to check out that night sky because it is breathtaking! We will definitely be back!

Very Clean and Fully Equipped

It was really a beautifully rustic designed home and the grounds were equally charming. Views were breathtaking. The home was very clean and fully equipped for cooking and grilling outdoors. We would love to return someday.
