Few sunrises on earth rival those in Teton Valley. As the morning’s golden glow swells from behind the Grand Teton, the coolness of the crisp alpine nighttime diminishes with the mountain’s shadows. At once peaceful and thrumming with the energy of a thriving, vibrant landscape, each summer morning overflows with promise—especially when it begins at Tributary. A relaxed, refined lifestyle community in quaint Driggs, Idaho, Tributary offers the ideal place to experience immersion in the untrammeled natural West as well as truly elevated amenities.

This sweeping, 1500-acre development seems woven into the very fabric of the landscape; a full third of the acreage is a Fen—a unique, protected wetland—that not only offers bountiful opportunities for recreation, but is also home to a diverse array of native wildlife including moose, bald eagles, osprey, wild trout, and more. Members enjoy exclusive access to this pristine slice of Teton Valley, and all that its untamed crystal waters and pure breezes have to offer.

A tranquil oasis awaits after whatever the day brings: retreat to the haven of Tributary to relax, recharge and plan your next adventure.

Some days, as it has always been in the West, adventure irresistibly beckons. No matter the time of year, Tributary is ideally situated as a base camp for exhilarating exploration. Summer and fall, however, are particularly rich with opportunities for all ages, interests and ability levels. In addition to Tributary’s celebrated golf course, the Recreation Barn—an on-site cache of diverse outdoor gear—provides members with mountain bikes, road bikes, paddleboards, rafts, and yard games like bocce, archery and hatchet-throwing. On-site ponds offer spectacular private fly fishing, as do a multitude of nearby regional rivers. Additional off-site opportunities include horseback riding, mountain climbing, hiking, internationally-celebrated National Parks, breathtaking wildlife watching, whitewater rafting and more—it’s all only steps away.

Exquisite dining, a relaxed and refined atmosphere, situated in the heart of Teton Valley—the blend strikes the perfect balance of rugged exhilaration and elevated lifestyle.

Enjoy world-class dining featuring exceptionally crafted plates with local ingredients, thoughtfully paired with cellar-worthy wine and handcrafted cocktails. End the day as the sun eases into the West, painting the rugged Tetons in shades of amethyst and wild rose.
