You Can Stay In An Idaho Airbnb That Looks Like An Old-School Saloon

If you're a fan of the western vibes that have enthralled "Yellowstone" enthusiasts, you'll want to stay at this old-school saloon in Idaho. Just one look at this unique Airbnb, and you'll be convinced to book your next vacation here. Situated in the Teton Valley, this luxury Airbnb is $300 a night and can accommodate up to four guests at a time. There is one bedroom with a queen mattress and a sofa bed in the living room.

The 4.99 stars and 153 reviews prove it's a hit with one guest remarking, "Our stay at the Saloon was excellent! We couldn't have asked for a better hostess!" Another reviewer said, "An absolutely flawless stay — book it now before I book it again." Past guests also gush about the fantastic host and thoughtful details throughout the saloon. "The property was incredible, and Ashley is a very gracious and detail-oriented host. The small accommodations such as coffee, creamer, cold filtered water, a few local brews, candles, robes, etc. [make] this getaway ... one of my most favorite I've ever been to."

You'll want for nothing in the saloon

When you're away from home, it can feel uneasy not having your own things with you. While it's easy to pack your favorite t-shirt, it's hard to bring the sense of comfort you're used to. However, Airbnb superhosts like Ashley make this uncomfortable feeling melt away with their attention to detail. While relaxing at the saloon, you can curl up with a book provided by the host next to the indoor gas fireplace (via Airbnb). Or you can enjoy a movie on the TV or a game of pool on the billiards table. In the bathroom, there's a hair dryer, shampoo, conditioner, shower gel, and ample hot water to get yourself cleaned up after a long day of exploring. There's also a washer and dryer to clean your clothes and an iron to straighten those wrinkles for a night out at a fancy restaurant.

The kitchen has everything you need to cook your favorite meals if you decide to stay in for the night. There's a fridge, microwave, freezer, stove, oven, and toaster to use. To make your morning coffee or evening cup of tea, there's a coffee maker and kettle as well as all the essential cooking utensils you might need including dishes and silverware. One thing of note is to be aware that there is no air conditioning inside the saloon.

The backyard is breathtaking

You can enter this Airbnb through the private entrance, and there is plenty of parking on the premises. The saloon offers an expansive backyard and access to the 10-acre lot nestled in the Teton Valley. A lovely little creek runs through the property, and you're welcome to explore it. However, the host asks that guests not enter the buildings marked private. Ashley lives in the home next to the saloon and is there to help with anything her guests might need. However, she won't intrude on your privacy. She lives there with her pit bull mix, who is friendly and loves to say hello, but if asked, she'll keep the pup inside so she doesn't bother you.

The rental offers a private patio, a fire pit in the yard, and plenty of outdoor furniture to enjoy the mountain views. There's even a barbecue grill, utensils for cooking outside, and an outdoor dining area if you just can't get enough of those gorgeous peaks. This is a great spot for those who enjoy spending their vacations hiking, mountain biking, or kayaking, and there's even a saltwater hot tub available for winding down after those strenuous activities. According to Caldera Spas, a saltwater hot tub is fantastic for soothing sore muscles and relaxing joints; it's also less likely to irritate your skin.

The quiet side of the Tetons

The Western saloon Airbnb is only two miles off Highway 33, so finding this little gem is pretty straightforward. However, it's important to note that a 4x4 vehicle is necessary for this area, especially during the winter months between November and April. The Teton Valley is considered the quiet side of the Tetons because it's not nearly as busy or crowded as the Wyoming side, explains Visit Idaho. Rest assured that does not mean there's less to do.

There are many ways to enjoy the mountain range from the Idaho side. For example, the saloon is only 90 minutes from West Yellowstone and Grand Teton National Park, 30 minutes from Grand Targhee Resort, and one hour away from the Jackson Hole Mountain Resort, all of which offer a wide range of hiking trails, horseback riding, fly fishing, historical landmarks, shopping, and eating. Although those attractions are worth the drive, it still may feel like a long time to be in the car. If you're looking for something closer, worry not. From the saloon, it's only a 10 minute drive to the town of Driggs, where you can find good food and coffee at shops like Rise Coffee House. Just 10 minutes further down the road you'll find Teton Backcountry Guides. They offer guided tours to those looking to get a raw experience of the fierce yet beautiful mountains.
