We were one of the first families to buy a cottage in the Village. We bought one we could rent seasonally (there are only a few) because it didn't seem likely we could live in Victor year round. But the Village always makes us happy. Our courtyard and cottage are beautiful, tranquil, welcoming. Great neighbors too. We watch the Village grow with pleasure. There is plenty of room and every year there is more to do, more people to meet. I would say that the Village offers a gracious and festive way of life -- especially for hikers and skiers -- at a very reasonable cost.
When we first considered moving to Mountainside Village, we were attracted to the location. It's close to the base of Teton Pass; a 40-minute drive to Grand Targhee Ski Resort; and access to hiking and bike trails right from its backyard. But what we value most is the community spirit that characterizes Mountainside Village living, where neighbors know neighbors and share a vision of making Mountainside Village a
wonderful place to live and work and call home.
I love my front porch...and, even though it's north-facing, I love being out front and engaging with neighbors. The front porch design truly facilitates neighborhood interaction. For dense living, Mountainside Village is quiet and so friendly. You'll love it...trails out the door, great neighbors, quiet, rural flavor with access to all the amenities of town. We chose to live in Mountainside Village for the thoughtful design of community & proximity to public lands and Jackson.
Mountainside Village has been designed to be both a timeless and timely Village. This small mountain Village provides an example of the way communities should be built. The Idaho Smart Growth coalition backed this claim by awarding Mountainside Village it's highest honor of recognition.
