Butler's Lakefront Log Cabin
offers you a quiet and private custom-built log cabin between Ashton and St. Anthony, Idaho, and near Grand Teton and Yellowstone National Parks. The cabin
is set in a wooded wetland on a small peninsula, surrounded on three sides by a lake. Across the lake are sand dunes which offer views of the desert below and the Grand Teton mountain peak.
Log cabin was custom-built in 2002. Tastefully appointed with carpet, slate tile,

Canoes, Kayaks, Rowboats, and Paddle Boats
Cabin owner Burt Butler is happy to make available one canoe and two kayaks to renters at no cost. We require a "release of liability" to be signed to use the canoe and kayaks. Life jackets must be worn. Paul Hopperdietzel, longtime lake owner and developer, has rowboats and paddle boats available for rent ($10 a day, and $10 a day for life jackets).
The lake is well-stocked with trout. With rental of the cabin comes two fishing permits; additional fishing permits are $50 a week or $10 a day. Please advise ahead of time if more than two people will be fishing (under 12 years old free).
The water is a comfortable temperature for swimming by July and August. A swimming or fishing dock is located on the west side of the point. The southern and eastern sides of the point have a shallower, less rocky shoreline.
Full-service grocery stores are located in Ashton and St. Anthony.
Big Judd's in Ashton is famous for its 12-inch hamburgers. Trail's End in Ashton serves a great breakfast, lunch and dinner. The Relay Station, north of St. Anthony, has an excellent menu. Fine dining can be found at restaurants in Idaho Falls, Idaho; West Yellowstone, Montana; and Jackson, Wyoming.
