While he spends most of his time near the sandy white beaches and in the beautiful California weather, Olsen also has another location close to his heart.
Olsen and his wife, Sarah Wright, as well as his three kids, all enjoy spending time at their gorgeous vacation home in Jackson, Wyoming. Olsen originally grew up in Rock Island, Illinois, but there’s something special about Wyoming for the actor.
According to The Ringer, Olsen used to vacation in Wyoming as a kid. Overall, the couple talks about how adventurous their lives are and how Wyoming seems to fit in with that. The couple even got married there in 2012.
All in all, the family is in love with Grand Teton National Park, the wildlife, and everything else the state has to offer.
Eric Christian Olsen And Sarah Wright House Hunting
Olsen and his wife were on an episode of “House Hunters” on HGTV. Sarah Wright is also an actress. You may recognize her from her roles in “Parks and Recreation” or “The House Bunny.”
Just like any other episode of “House Hunters,” the couple picks between three outstanding houses before landing on their “dream home.” In a 2015 clip from the show from Entertainment Tonight, fans can watch as Olsen and Wright examine countertops, gape at huge walk-in closets, and joke about wood-burning hot tubs.
Olsen also says that he wants a lot of outdoor activities at his home. This includes anything from sand volleyball to a pool to golf to basketball to a fitness center.
When he’s talking during the show, Olsen sounds like quite the home renovator expert.
“There’s something incredibly kind of magical and storybook about this property because of the use of wood and the high ceilings. There are two-and-a-half acres to run around in. There’s a lot of reasons to buy this house,” Eric Christian Olsen said.
At the end of it all, the couple ends up with a rustic and gorgeous house to vacation in between filming “NCIS: Los Angeles.” They picked the house next to a golf course.
The couple is a Hollywood favorite. Aside from always being playful and funny during interviews, Wright and Olsen share their very close bond with the world. For example, when their second child was born, Olsen posted on Instagram a sweet tribute to his wife and newborn daughter.
“I am in awe of this woman; somehow navigating the most difficult moments with equal parts passion, fearlessness, and all encompassing love. I suspect she may be magic,” he wrote.
The couple has been together since meeting in 2006 on the set of the Fox sitcom, “The Loop.”
