Before becoming a bed and breakfast, the property was designed and built by two world-renown opera singers; Soprano Kristine Ciesinski and Bass-baritone Norman Bailey who still live in the area. Kris and Norm moved to the Tetons and built the home seeking respite from their busy schedules. The 7,200 square foot retreat situated on twenty acres was designed with a multitude of windows allowing light and fresh air into every room in the house. When the current owners saw the property, they knew they had to convert it to a bed and breakfast to offer guest the same respite and relaxation the original owners found in this corner of the Teton Valley.
Dream catchers are one of the most fascinating traditions of Native Americans. The traditional dream catcher was intended to protect the sleeping individual from negative dreams, while letting positive dreams through. The positive dreams would slip through the hole in the center of the dream catcher, and glide down the feathers to the sleeping person below. The negative dreams would get caught up in the web, and expire when the first rays of the sun struck them.
