In the 1920s, the Gerald Brown family purchased property along the west bank of the Snake River and began operating the Crescent Lazy H Dude Ranch, offering trout fishing, horseback riding and other outdoor activities. Today, that property is the Crescent H Ranch subdivision, and its outdoor attractions are as appealing to homeowners today as they were to the Browns’ guests 80 years ago.
Crescent H Ranch boasts miles of trails for horseback riding, cross-country skiing and hiking, as well as miles of private spring creeks, ponds and Snake River frontage for first-rate fishing. At Crescent H, homeowners owning smaller lots (a half acre to two acres) and those owning larger lots (35 to 50 acres) will all feel like they’re living on 200 to 500 acres.
The fishing access to an abundance of high-quality spring creek water sets Crescent H apart from other Jackson Hole neighborhoods. In fact, at one point in its history, Crescent H was one of the finest fishing camps in the country. As one expert said, “There’s a lot to be said for having spring creek fishing during a high run-off year. There are a lot of times you can’t fish the Snake River when you can fish the creeks.” Fishing at Crescent H is for residents and their guests only. Homeowners also have access to Bridger-Teton National Forest.
Crescent H’s forested hills and tree-studded meadows create both a sense of privacy and a feeling of being in harmony with nature. Wildlife is abundant, but Crescent H is also a short drive from manmade attractions. The shops, restaurants and art galleries of downtown Jackson are close, as is the world-class skiing of Jackson Hole Mountain Resort. A historic Western lodge on-site at Crescent H serves as a reminder of the property’s heritage.
