Dairy Ranches offers the best of both worlds of Jackson Hole. The neighborhood offers large parcels in a secluded location, yet it’s only five miles south of downtown Jackson and about a 15-minute drive from Teton Village and Jackson Hole Mountain Resort. Homeowners in Dairy Ranches can have it all: a quiet country retreat plus convenient proximity to restaurants, shops, entertainment and world-class skiing.
The entire subdivision stretches out over 525 acres. With only 23 lots, the smallest of which is 10 acres, the neighborhood has been designed to give homeowners maximum privacy and the sense of wide open spaces that people love in the West. To add to the appeal, horses are not only allowed at Dairy Ranches, but welcome. It’s unusual in Jackson Hole to find large, horse-friendly properties so close to town.
Dairy Ranches borders the 3 Creek Ranch development as well as a wide swath of conservation-protected property. Spring Creek flows through the center of the subdivision, attracting all sorts of wildlife. And homeowners enjoy 360-degree views that remind them every day that they are in Jackson Hole and nowhere else, with Glory Bowl to the west, Munger Mountain to the south and the Grand Teton to the north.
The neighborhood was created in 1987, and as its name suggests, it was once the site of a dairy operation as well as a cattle ranch. The roads within the subdivision reflect that heritage: Dairy Lane, Creamery Lane and Red House Road. All three are dead-end: The absence of any through-roads in Dairy Ranches is a feature that maintains homeowners’ sense of privacy.
