Once a sleepy ranch community, Star Valley, Wyoming has quickly become one of the Mountain West’s most attractive destinations. The area’s natural beauty, access to the outdoors and burgeoning arts & culture scene, coupled with Wyoming’s friendly tax codes, have made this hideout of the West one of the most desired real estate markets in the country.
Certainly, Star Valley has benefitted from the popularity of Jackson Hole, it’s neighbor to the north, as limited inventory has pushed buyers to surrounding communities. But Star Valley’s charm is all its own. From its cattle-towns roots have blossomed many premiere developments, which embody the area’s rich Western heritage with a touch of modern elegance.
These beautiful properties speak for themselves, and they are giving shape to a new spirit of Star Valley. From the Double L Ranch in Etna to fishing paradises in the mid-valley to air parks in Afton and Alpine – this once hidden gem is fast becoming the envy of the West, and savvy buyers are taking note.
“The Double L Ranch affords the most discerning real estate buyers an opportunity to enjoy a true Western paradise carefully developed to become one of America’s most desirable sporting ranches,” Farm and Ranch Magazine notes. “The Star Valley area derives its magnetism not only from the area’s vast beautiful lands, 9,000 foot mountain peaks and native wildlife, but also for its amazing outdoor recreational opportunities.”
Boasting an equestrian center, state-of-the-art movie theater, private golf course and the famed Buckoff Saloon, the Double L Ranch offers amenities that rival even the most sophisticated metro areas. And, at the same time, the development offers endless recreation and unmatched wilderness access in nearly every direction.
Only a short drive south sits the Salt River Ranch, a private community that offers some of the best trout fishing just steps from one’s backdoor. This exclusive development provides acreage for horses and cattle alongside modern infrastructure that offers the latest conveniences and eco-friendly features.
The nearby River Bend Meadows provides 35-acre homesites and a 65-acre common area, which offers hiking trails, live springs, fishing ponds and boat access to the Salt River. All of which are punctuated by breathtaking 360-degree mountain views.
For the contemporary traveler, air parks in Afton and Alpine offer access to the very best of the valley. Landing strips allow owners to fly in or out steps from their home—not to mention, an amazing way to explore the surrounding mountain ranges.
For all its comforts and conveniences, perhaps Star Valley’s most treasured assets are the solace and privacy it affords residences. Many of the area’s most unique properties are tucked away in the mountains and hillsides, creating a true escape for those seeking a reprieve. It’s little wonder that these homes, like the Jesse James Hideout, have become the envy of real estate investors.
