You will not find a nicer ski or summer vacation home than our 4 bedroom, 4.5 bath designer decorated log home. Everything about the house from landscaping to furnishings to linens is the absolutely highest quality. The house is located in upper Elkhorn, 5 minutes from skiing, on the bike path, with a hill in the back yard for sledding or a short walk to tennis courts and swimming pool. The free shuttle bus stop is across the street.
Perfect for families, the eight beds include a rustic kids' bunkroom that can sleep 6. The great room includes a massive river rock fireplace, a reading nook, a game nook, and a dining room with seating for 10-12. There is an incredible view of Baldy from the great room. The kitchen has a large island with seating for 7 and Sub-Zero, Dacor, and Bosch appliances. The adjoining family area has another river rock fireplace and opens on to east and west facing covered patio areas. There is a large hot tub right outside the family area. The master bedroom includes a gas, river rock fireplace, jacuzzi tub, and a view of Baldy from the bed and the tub. Each bedroom has its own full bath with high quality tile surfaces, glass shower doors, and heated floors.
My family rented this home along with my brother's family (eleven people total) over the Christmas holidays. It is a truly lovely home that very comfortably accommodated all of us. The very large gourmet kitchen is perfect for cooking and preparing meals for large groups. The bedrooms are all a nice sized, and each has its own bathroom! A definite plus with teenagers! There is a cozy TV area for the kids and a spacious living room area for the adults - so everyone has some space. There is a sizable mudroom off the garage and leading into the house that had plenty of room for our whole brood to get out of ski suits and boots, along with large closets to hang everything! There are sleds for outdoor fun and plenty of toys for indoor fun!
The owner was very helpful and prompt in answering questions and dealing with issues. The jets on the hot tub stopped working the second evening into our stay, and with in 24 hours he had repairmen out and the problem was taken care of.
Both Baldy and Dollar ski areas were a quick (less than 10 minutes) trip from the house.
Again, it was a terrific house, and we hope to be able to rent it on our next trip to Sun Valley!
