We didn't want to leave!

  • 5 of 5

We had so much fun in this beautiful home with our ten friends. It offered everything we could ask for and more! We just wished we had a piano player in our group. The accommodations were excellent, the grounds were private and some of our group even saw moose in the driveway one afternoon. We are thinking of making this a new destination for our annual Idaho fishing trips. Thank you for offering up your home.

Owner's Response: Thanks for the review Steven! We enjoyed hosting your wonderful group. Hopefully the fishing was great and we can entice you back for years to come. The piano acoustics are fantastic in the great room and many musicians who visit have returned again and again to enjoy that rare treat . My wife will be thrilled if you could find someone to enjoy her piano in her absence. Don't forget to bring a guitar player for the acoustic six string as well... Please visit again, -Edwin

fall getaway, wood river valley

  • 5 of 5

this is the first time we used VRBO for a fall getaway to the valley. previously, we had stayed at the sun valley lodge but wanted to bring our small dog with us this time. we stayed in the guest house which is about 1500 sq feet and has two well appointed bedrooms and two baths. Edwin's place is excellent for getting around the valley, both to Ketchum and to Hailey--it is halfway between. we enjoyed the quiet and the accommodations. it is right off the highway and though that may sound not good, it is well protected by a large berm and set back far enough that the highway never becomes an issue. the dog loved it and we loved getting around. the wifi went off early on in the trip and Edwin came to fix it. He also gave us great tips for restaurants which we used. the easy access from the parking space to the front door meant that we were in and out without problem. We would definitely rent again from Ed.

Perfect home for large groups or family

  • 5 of 5

This is a wonderful home. Very spacious, comfortable, and full of light. There were 7 of us in town for the Trailing of the Sheep Festival. Central location between Hailey and Kechum allows for travel to so many places of interest, including Galena Pass. We would

Recommend this home to anyone who likes privacy within and without, and would definitely come here again. Pricing is very reasonable considering all you get in this magnificent home.
