Shooting Star Cabin

Tonight we, in North America, will be treated to the Lyrid meteor shower (one of seven meteor showers in 2012).....and what better place to watch it than from the Shooting Star Cabin in Teton Village near Jackson Hole Wyoming?

NASA says that the conditions are very favorable for this year's Lyrid meteor shower...and the night sky over the Shooting Star Cabin looks just right to me!

The Shooting Star Cabin is a traditional Wyoming homestead style house in a beautiful setting with views of the mountains and open ranch land all around.  The beautiful, rustic front door sets the tone for this house which is made from reclaimed barn wood...

One of the two fireplaces is in the great-room and is situated on a full wall of stonework..

The spacious "cabin" is 3,900 sq ft in size and has 4 bedrooms and 4.5 bathrooms:

Nice to have a window in the bathtub to keep an eye out for those shooting stars...

(Are those shooting stars or snow cats?).  This house and its scenic location are absolutely beautiful...

...but I think that best of all is this fabulous stone terrace with spectacular built-in stone hot tub (and really cool snow bench)...what a perfect spot to watch tonight's shooting stars:

The Shooting Star Cabin is today's perfect Ski House of the Day!
