The structure was purchased and moved by the Western artist Bill Schenck to the current location in 1979. Over the years the lodge has been expanded and upgraded, but its western heritage has been maintained. The 4,469-square-foot structure includes four bedrooms, a sleeping loft, three baths, a large living area, family, dining, two fireplaces, granite counters, two outdoor entertaining areas, a separate guest cabin and an oversized two-car garage with shop.

It includes mature lodge pole pine, spruce trees and tremendous views and access to Pacific Creek and the Teton National Forest. The spot is primed for the construction of a new residence.

"Rubber Snake Ranch offers an ideal combination of outdoor recreation, natural beauty, and history. We look forward to finding its new owners."
