The Granite Ridge Lodges stand at the forested base of the ski mountain, just steps from Teton Village, the slopes, the hiking trails and the Four Seasons. Granite Ridge Lodge 5 is a classic of its kind a lofty, contemporary four-bedroom house with three levels; neighbors to either side and the quiet green rise of the woods behind.
The great room is the heart of the house, handsome and welcoming; it is the central living and dining space where windows on three sides allow the eye to soar up to the top of the ski mountain, down through the village and out into the dusky pine forest behind the house. A robust, stone, wood-burning fireplace anchors the space, facing a quartet of leather and cowhide sofas, chair and ottoman. The great room is flooded with clear light during the day and flickers with golden firelight in the evening. French doors open to the terrace and hot tub, and the woods.
The kitchen is in a wide alcove just off of the dining area. Sunny and efficient, the kitchen has lots of stone-topped counter space, a center island with a prep sink, a breakfast/sandwich bar that can seat five, and a small step-in pantry. The dining table, stands before a vast picture window, which frames the lively village and the slopes. At night, drapes may be pulled across for privacy.
From the foyer, stairs head up a half flight to the great room, kitchen and guest suite and then on up to the master bedroom and a guest room. An open sitting area and office waits at the top of the stairs, and the master bedroom is just off this sunny, carpeted spot. The master, set right at the top of the house under a peaked wood ceiling, has a gas stone fireplace with a wide, stone hearth perfect for feet-warming after a day in the snow. An enormous walk in closet and private balcony add notes of unabashed luxury to the master bedroom. The stone-floored master bath has an oval soaking tub beneath a window with a view of the woods. There are double sinks, a separate shower, and a private water closet.
A charming, carpeted guest room also stands just off the sitting area. Here, wooden twin beds stand side by side. Out on the porch, Adirondack lounge chairs invite long reveries gazing up to the mountaintops and down at the life of the village. In the private bathroom, the combination shower and bath is illuminated by a little square window with a mountain view gorgeous as a painting.
Set above the garage on the main floor is a second guest bedroom with a private bath. Here, an ample, suede-framed bed is flanked by side tables and reading lamps. A crossed pair of old-time leather and wood snowshoes above the headboard sparks thoughts of the next days adventures. A dresser and a big walk-in closet provide plenty of space to unpack.
Granite Ridge Lodge 5s lower level holds a mudroom, a laundry room, a TV room and the lower living quarters. The warm and comfortable TV room feels Adirondack in spirit, with strong reds, muted greens and warm browns. A rustic twigged cabinet holds the flat-screen TV, perfect for movie night, or for denizens of the sleeper sofa movies in bed.
Off of the TV room is the bunkroom, equipped (as is every bedroom in Granite Ridge Lodge 5) with its own iPod docking station. Together, the four rustic log bunk beds one with a queen bed on the bottom can comfortably sleep five. Fluffy duvets are covered in classic Pendleton wool. There is a private bath just off the bunkroom.
Behind Granite Ridge Lodge 5, the grassy back yard ends in a rocky stream and the steep rise of the mountain. In front of the house, the possibilities roll on forever. Hiking, skiing, fishing, kayaking, snowshoeing, mountain biking, golf, horseback riding everything is within easy reach. You can hike into Grand Teton National Park right from property. Jackson Hole is a paradise for nature and sport lovers; the town of Jackson is a hotspot of theatre, shopping, restaurants and nightlife; and a home in the Granite Ridge Lodges puts everything Teton Village has to offer right out the door.
