Comfort for all.

  • 5 of 5

What an amazing home for a large group. If you are into comfortable furniture, sitting by the fire, cooking and dining with your friends rehashing your day of skiing than this is your home. Throw in comfortable private bedrooms and wildlife viewing just off the back deck and you have a magical place. I recommend it for all of those reasons and more. Brian F

Family Ski trip

  • 4 of 5

We had a great time staying at Tom and Anne's lovely home. The home accommodated our families very well with plenty of comfy beds and a fantastic fire place. We had a great time skiing with the lifts just minutes away. We had a blast and highly recommend this VRBO rental home.

March 8th > 12th 2018

  • 4 of 5

For the last 20 years we have taken a guys ski trip to the Valley in March. The attached property was perfect for the 6 of us. The house was roomy quiet and well stocked. The living room had enough seating for all of us to have coffee in the morning or watch a movie after skiing. Hot tub was great and well maintained. Years when we have 4 the property is a little expensive however for 6 > 8 it is perfect.

Thanks for letting us stay at your Elkhorn home.

Perfect home for our ski trip!

  • 5 of 5

This beautiful home was perfect for our group of eight. We had four couples and the bedroom/bathroom configuration was ideal! The hot tub was so soothing after a day of skiing. The deck out back has a gas grill which was great for the Valentine steak dinner we prepared. We definitely recommend this home!

Easy Weekend Retreat

  • 5 of 5

We had 8 women together for a weekend retreat for a non-profit and the space was perfect. I live in the area, but needed a large space to host. We enjoyed cooking in the kitchen that was stocked with dishes, cooking tools, and some basics like salt, pepper, and hot sauce. The hot tub was perfect in the snow. The living area seated us all comfortably for our all-day meeting and we ate our meals at the large table. Everyone had their own bed and plenty of bathrooms. We were also just a few minutes from Ketchum for a Saturday night on the town. I would highly recommend this house for large groups.
