Guestbook comments from the owner

I cannot even begin to express in words how wonderful our stay has been at Big Buster. Everyone that entered the door to your property was blown away by the exquisite beauty of the home and property. I did not believe that having a perfect wedding was possible but we were able to achieve just that and could not have even begun to accomplish this without the use of your home. My wedding dreams came true and I thank you from the bottom of my heart for being a part of this.



Also, you and your family have been wonderful to work with and so accommodating of our requests. This too has made our stay even more comfortable. Dave was great in showing the property upon arrival and making sure that we had everything we needed. Mark, the gardener, also stopped by to make sure everything was just as we needed. Top notch experience from the beginning.



Thank you again for everything. Everything looked amazing!



Best,

Heather

Big Buster Ranch is THE BEST!! 6 Stars!!!

  • 5 of 5

Words cannot describe how amazing this property is. The photos do not do it justice! The layout makes everyone feel like they have their own private oasis, the decor is beautiful and cozy, and the landscaping is stunning. This property is meticulously cared for and has everything you could ever need. We were amazed at how well the kitchen was stocked with appliances, and there were tons of lawn games to play. My niece said she never wanted to leave, and she wanted the whole family to stay in this house forever :) I think we were all sad to say goodbye to this gorgeous home. In addition, the owner Doug was a delight to work with. He was extremely responsive, helpful, and very accommodating. Because of Doug, we felt at home! And I can't leave out Ross, the caretaker of the property. Wow - he was just a love! So sweet and helpful. We could tell how much work he put into preparing the house to make sure it was perfect for our family. He made sure we had everything we needed - above and beyond! Also, Ross is extremely handy, and when my Mom had a snafu with her car, Ross was there to help :) If I could give the property, owners, and caretaker 6-stars... I would! Just incredible!!!! THANK YOU!!!

Rustic Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Fun rustic-eclectic decor and high-end finishes make this home feel homey and luxurious. Great place to have a romantic weekend or bring family and friends, and the dogs. The yard is completely fenced in, and they even had complimentary treats for our dogs. It's a beautiful property on the river, and close to both Ketchum, and Hailey. We will definitely rent this place again!
