Great Escapes July/August 2014: Wilson, Wyoming

<< Back to Home & Style, July 2014

Though its 75 acres accommodate myriad outdoor pursuits, from archery to fishing, Phillips Ridge is perhaps most impressive for its indoor activities. The five-bedroom home, finished in 2007, offers on the lower level a two-lane bowling alley, a billiards table, a massage room, a home gym, and a grotto, while the rest of the house features plush furnishings and free-flowing living areas, all of which encourage guests to gather. The home is most popular in the summer, when the 35-foot-tall windows perfectly frame the property’s bountiful grounds, which include heated patios, a fire pit, a hot tub, a 3-acre pond filled with trout, and two smaller ponds, as well as wildlife like moose, elk, and deer. Canoeing can be done on the property’s ponds, while miles of hiking and biking trails are just a 5-minute drive away. However, the home’s ideal location—just 15 minutes from downtown Jackson and 15 minutes from skiing at the Jackson Hole Mountain Resort—gives it year-round allure.
