Overview

Central Idaho House Rental Photos and Description

Estate House, 5 Bedrooms, 4 Baths, (Sleeps 8-16)

This unique private retreat is nestled in the woods next to a stream.

The views from the 25' floor-to-ceiling glass walls look over the extensive natural gardens and patios.

The 900 square foot master suite has a king bed, interior balcony, exterior balcony, fireplace, jetted soaking tub, and steam shower.

The remaining four bedrooms have queen beds.

The house is fully equipped including a grand piano, new luxurious linens and beautifully appointed leather furniture. A dramatic floor-ceiling cut rock fireplace in the living room is available for cozy evenings. The dining area has a long table that can seat 12.

The house is very comfortable with lots of space and privacy. It is great for families or friends that want to enjoy a wonderful holiday together.

The great room and patios are easily converted for large functions and gatherings, easily seating 40 to 70 (depending on the season contact the owner for info) for your event. There are additional charges for events depending on the event and the number of people.

Sometimes we offer weather guarantees. For winter, usually it involves a combination of the weather and lift operations. Ask the owner for details.

Lots of Space in Beautiful Setting

  • 5 of 5

Had a wonderful Easter weekend with two families. There were only seven of us so we didn't come close to utilizing the whole property. The house and amenities were great! Being able to cook meals with a fully stocked kitchen and two dishwashers was perfect. The setting amongst the trees is tranquil and relaxing. It's close location to both Hailey and Sun Valley was ideal for both grocery shopping and restaurants. Look forward to our next trip and will most definitely try to rent again.

The setting was perfect for our family Christmas! The hose was beautiful and I don't think I've slept in a more comfortable bed!

This place is great

  • 5 of 5

This is a wonderful property for a large party. It is very spacious and beautiful. It was very clean on arrival. The location is very close to Ketchum. I especially like the kitchen. It has absolutely everything that you could need and is by far the best stocked kitchen (appliances/tools) I have ever seen in a rental property.

Yoga Retreat Group

  • 5 of 5

I was one of the last to arrive at the home which we rented to host a weekend yoga retreat for our group of 15 teachers in training. Thankfully, I was greeted by smiling, grateful faces for this at this gorgeous, modern home. Our group was impressed and they felt so special that we had rented such a fabulous home. We had a chef with us who cooked all our meals and he raved about the generous amount of space to cook, store and serve in the kitchen. There was always a washer and dryer available because of the three sets for anyone who needed it. The landscaping is beautiful from any angle of the property. The hot tub was clean and seemed brand new. The main room had enough space for all of us to lay down our yoga mats for our group to practice. The house is also designed in such a way that the rooms have a lot of privacy. The property is located between the two towns with access to everything within a few minutes. Highly recommended!

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.
