Why Anne & Tom Tawoda chose Central Idaho

This property is P R I M E location.

C E N T E R of the Valley With the Sun Valley walk/bike/jogging trails out front and the world-class Elkhorn golf course out back, and both the Baldy and Dollar ski mountains just down the road, it is ideally located....

What makes this house unique

The night time is extremely special out back. Whether it be watching the elk coming down the mountain in the evening or watching the stars of the milky-way and shooting stars from the warmth and comfort of the private spa--it doesn't get better....

A Great Summer Experience

  • 5 of 5

We spent the entire month of June 08 in this lovely home. There were 4 adults and enough space including private baths for all of us. Two grandsons were very happy with the large "bunk room" and having 2 masters on the first floor was perfect for some older adults who visited for several nights. Both the owner and the property manager were very responsive to what few problems we encountered and the weekly house keeper did an excellent job. It was a bit chilly the first couple of weeks, but the last two weeks of June were absolutely wonderful - and there is plenty of deck to enjoy the wonderful evenings, bar-b-q and the fox that visits almost every night. All in all we would highly recommend this home for a wonderful summer get away.
