Mountain views, open spaces, wildlife and the Snake River. … the John Dodge and neighboring Homestead subdivisions offer all the best of Jackson Hole’s natural wonders, plus proximity to shopping, dining and other comforts. You can stay home in your quiet retreat watching deer and moose roam, but you can also venture out to browse art galleries, dine at a fine restaurant, hike in the Tetons or ski at Jackson Hole Mountain Resort.
Named for a colorful character who homesteaded there, John Dodge was one of the first large-lot, high-end developments on the west side of the Snake River and one of the first of its type in Teton County. The neighborhood was carved into parcels of 3 to 10 acres, and the developer used innovative planning tools to ensure homeowners would have protected views and a sense of privacy.
One of the most attractive aspects of John Dodge is the private access homeowners have to about two miles of Snake River frontage. The homeowners association has an access easement and in turn issues a license to each homeowner for access to the dike system for walking, biking, cross-country skiing and fishing. Homestead homeowners may not actually have Snake River access, but they’ll feel as though they do.
In John Dodge and Homestead subdivisions residents have the best of both worlds: a quiet and scenic country retreat and proximity to one of the most vibrant Rocky Mountain communities.
