Bear Island is truly a hidden gem. (Offered together with the adjacent 18.80 acres as MLS #21-915) Only minutes' drive from the airport, Grand Teton National Park, Jackson Hole Golf & Tennis, and all of the amenities that the town of Jackson has to offer, this beautiful riverside neighborhood only feels like it's a million miles away. The Snake River, which winds through the property, is home to native fine-spotted cutthroat trout and offers blue ribbon fly fishing opportunities. Mature cottonwoods, conifers and seasonal streams lend these two, separate eighteen-acre parcels a sense of wild seclusion and abundant privacy. The horizon is marked by unparalleled mountain views: the iconic slopes of Rendezvous Mountain and the Jackson Hole Mountain Resort, as well as the majestic Teton Range to the north. Riverfront properties such as Bear Island rarely come to market. This offering presents a unique opportunity to own a Wyoming legacy property.
