Great property for extended family summertime gathering, fun times in yard and great room

  • 5 of 5

The property was perfect for our extended family gathering with adults and children of all ages. Plenty of beds and bathrooms for privacy and comfort for multiple families combined with large outdoor and great room areas for gathering together. We especially enjoyed the yard for games with the kids and the in-ground trampoline was extremely popular. The kitchen was well-equipped and had everything we needed. The quiet location was great for morning walks to Penny Lake but also close enough to Ketchum for early AM swims at the Wood River Community YMCA. Scott, the owner, was readily available for minor questions we had upon check-in. We found many things to enjoy in Sun Valley from relaxing in the backyard and enjoying the wind and the trees, to rafting, horseback riding, hiking and summertime figure skating. Board Ranch was a terrific place for our far-flung family to gather for a precious week of quality time and enjoyment.

great place - disapointing hidden fees

  • 4 of 5

We loved our stay here with 3 families over NYE. Very quiet, peaceful part of Sun Valley with great access to Baldy.

One nit: the owner withheld our cleaning deposit saying the kitchen was unusually dirty. This is ridiculous - we cleaned way beyond the normal for a vacation rental, including emptying everything from the refrigerator (which painfully meant throwing away unopened items). He also accused us of taking a weather clock. We don't need a weather clock - we live in San Francisco and the weather really never changes. If he wanted more money for the rental, he should have raised the rates, not nickel & dime over bogus charges.

Owner's Response: We are sorry you fell that way. It was clearly spelled out in the rental contract how the home / kitchen is to be left This is the first time we have withheld a fee and charged for a missing item. With all the members in your group/kids it is hard to say what happened to the weather station. But it was their at checkin.

The house was so amazing, it had everything we needed to make our vacation just perfect! We would stay there again anytime. We loved having the big grassy areas for the kids to run around in, and it was so quiet and peaceful, just wish we could have stayed longer.

Best ever

  • 5 of 5

It was a pleasant surprise to find everything in working order and so well furnished from A to Z. Unfortunately, so often one arrives to a rented vacation home to find it barely resembles the photos and it is in anything but working order. Should we have the opportunity again, I definitely look forward to renting your home for our stays in SV. Thank you!
