JACKSON HOLE, Wyo., Nov. 8, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- A premier log residence located at the end of a private decommissioned national park road, surrounded on three sides by Grand Teton National Park with breathtaking unobstructed mountain views and endless outdoor activities, will sell at a live auction on December 10th, Concierge Auctions has announced. Originally listed for $16 million, Bighorn Lodge will be sold to the highest bidder at or above $5.995 million in cooperation with the Spackmans of Jackson Hole Sotheby's International Realty. The first bidder to register for the auction will receive the $1 million furniture package as a bonus if he/she is the winning bidder.
"We have watched past auctions conducted by Concierge Auctions in the Jackson Hole area, and it's apparent that their team is skilled at identifying the most motivated sellers. The seller of Bighorn Lodge is no exception, and he looks forward to naming a new owner on December 10th," Dave Spackman stated.

Considered by many to be the most beautiful log home in Jackson Hole and the entire Rocky Mountain region, Bighorn Lodge, located at 1240 East Nez Perce Road, was built with select "museum quality" specimen Western Cedar logs from British Columbia, Canada. The home boasts six porches and 10,000 square feet including five bedrooms, seven bathrooms and five Massive Montana Moss Rock fireplaces, each 24-feet-high, and a six-car garage. Located on 5.32 acres, the property is surrounded by Grand Teton National Park, so it feels as if it is a property of thousands of acres. The entire floor plan is on one level, and its second-story atrium windows flood the lower levels with warm natural sunlight. The bedroom wing hallway offers 8-foot-wide openings and no steps, rendering ease of lifestyle for all ages. The property has been showcased in several magazines including Cowgirl Magazine, Mountain Living and Log Cabin, and was also featured on HGTV.
Bighorn Lodge has an impressive large parking area that can easily accommodate 15 to 20 cars or boat trailer/snow mobile trailer/ATV trailer/horse trailers/raft trailer, plus six cars in the heated garage. The extra-high garage has been designed to accommodate three car lifts to store three additional vehicles for the car collector, or up to six ATVs or six snowmobiles.
"The residence combines the most stunning and dramatic design features taken from the most beautiful log homes in Aspen, Vail, Telluride, Park City, Big Sky, Lake Tahoe, Sun Valley and Jackson Hole, creating a log home that professionals are calling the most beautiful in Jackson Hole and in all of the Rocky Mountain West. Every detail of the Bighorn Lodge was precisely planned, and we believe anyone who is able to experience it will agree that it is truly a special place. From the museum-quality Western Red Cedar log construction to the hand-hammered iron work and whole-house electronics systems, the residence offers the finest luxuries," stated Bronko Terkovich, the builder and seller. "The location grants unobstructed views of the Grand Tetons and has easy access to the airport, the town of Jackson, Jackson Hole Mountain Resort and more. This is an unbelievable property that should not be missed."
"Bighorn Lodge is an ideal family home, vacation or corporate retreat for those who value privacy, luxury and a sporting life in the heart of an outdoorsman's paradise," stated Laura Brady, Vice President of Marketing for Concierge Auctions. "This is our fourth auction in the Jackson Hole area, so we are familiar with the market and are excited to present a compelling, transparent offering with this auction. The highest bidder at or above $5.995 million will be able to enjoy the holiday season in this incredible mountain estate."
Bighorn Lodge is located minutes from the best of Jackson Hole, known for its world-class alpine skiing, fishing, hunting, rafting, hiking, horseback riding, biking, snowshoeing, cross country skiing, wildlife viewing and snowmobiling in the Gros Ventre Mountains and the Bridger Teton National Forest. Spring Creek Lodge and Amangani, both 5-star resorts, are a mere 10 minutes away. The town of Jackson is just a short 20-minute drive with dozens of world renowned restaurants, unique shops, boutiques, spas, hotels, museums and over 40 art galleries.

Jackson Hole, originally called Jackson's Hole, is a Wyoming valley located near the western border with Idaho. The name "hole" derives from language used by early trappers or mountain men, who primarily entered the valley from the north and east and had to descend along relatively steep slopes, giving the sensation of entering a hole. These low-lying valleys are surrounded by mountains and contain rivers and streams. The valley is formed by the Teton Range on the western side and the Gros Ventre Range on the eastern side. Grand Teton National Park occupies the north-western part of the valley, encompassing much of the Teton Range as well as Jackson Lake.
The auction of the Bighorn Lodge will take place live, on-site, on December 10th. Attendance will be limited to registered bidders and their representatives. Phone and Internet bidding will be available. The property is open for preview daily from 2 to 5 pm and by appointment. A 3% commission is offered to the buyer's broker.
