***THE HIGHLIGHTS:

• Newer, upscale craftsman style home.

• Relaxing patio that is nicely furnished.

• The ONLY Elkhorn Golf Lodge with waterfall/stream/pond.

• Recently painted, furnished, and equipped for our primary use; so it’s pretty well set up compared to other Sun Valley rentals (we stay here approximately 10 weeks a year).

• Each bedroom is a 'suite' with it's own bathroom; all showers have a high end glass enclosure.

• Newer easy-to-use, state-of-the-art electronics.

• Ideally suited for 3 couples or combination of adults/children taking into account there are 3 beds.

• Elkhorn Village is nicer than you think.

***THE THINGS WE LOVE:

• The southern exposure windows enhance an already bright, open floor plan with abundant knotty alder finishes making this contemporary, craftsman home very attractive, warm, and comfortable.

• The beautiful kitchen and great room will no doubt be the center of attraction during your stay.

• Grilling & chilling on the patio to the sound of our waterfall on a cool summer's eve is hard to beat.

• The neighborhood is friendly and evening strolls around Elkhorn Village are a tradition to unwind and reminisce about the day's adventures.

• Easy access to pools, golf, tennis, skiing, biking, hiking and the town bus service are all bonuses and why we bought into Elkhorn Springs.

• We hope you enjoy it as much as we do!

About Steve Ferguson

We've been coming to Sun Valley since 1994 and we love the Wood River Valley because of the amazing recreational opportunities it offers. We've visited a lot of resort towns and although Sun Valley is the oldest resort town in the United States, it's also the best, since it was designed from the beginning to be a resort town. The 30+ miles of paved bike paths around the valley are outstanding. With world class fishing, downhill/cross country skiing, biking, hiking, art galleries, restaurants, and the best public access to recreation opportunities make Sun Valley the best.

In short, we love it here!

Steve Ferguson purchased this townhome in 2013

Why Steve Ferguson chose Sun Valley

Elkhorn Village is surprising enjoyable, quite, and central access to everything. We hope you enjoy the place as much as we do.

What makes this townhome unique

We take great pride in our place, feel very fortunate to own a beautiful home in Sun Valley and strive to provide a quality stay for our guests. We stay here about 10 weeks a year so the place is outfitted better than most of the other rentals.

Some highlights:

-Awesome Kitchen & Great room, open/bright floor plan

-Relaxing backyard & waterfall

-Each bedroom is a 'suite' with its own private bath

-Know the weather before you head out with our Davis Instruments on site weather station.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Fabulous! everything you could possibly want or need!

  • 5 of 5

We will go back for sure! This home is clean and new and well appointed! It's cozy and comfortable and efficiently organized with all of the creature comforts, wonderful kitchen amenities, a beautiful view, easy access to town, and wonderful, helpful owners! The master bedroom is very large, but one should note that the other two rooms are comfortable but on the small side, with queen beds, so the unit sleeps a MAXIMUM of 6 with 2 in each bed; therefore may be better for couples than for children. We loved it!!

GREAT place to stay in Sun Valley!

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from a four day stay at Casa de Ferg, and we're already scheming about when we can get back! We've stayed in quite a few VRBO properties over the years, and this was by far the best experience we've ever had with a rental home. The owner, Steve, could not be nicer or more accommodating. He made sure everything was taken care of, responded quickly to questions and concerns, and even arranged for a lovely bottle of wine to be waiting for us on our arrival.

The home is at least as beautiful as the pictures show - maybe even more so. It's extremely well-appointed, with everything we needed in the kitchen and baths. There was even laundry detergent there for our use - very handy after days of skiing! There was quite a bit of snowfall during our stay, but we never had to touch a shovel, as the driveway is heated. Such a luxurious convenience!

For beginner/rusty skiers, the location is ideal, less than five minutes away from the Dollar Lodge, and if you come with your own equipment, you can ski out from the Elkhorn lift right outside the back door. Really great! We're hoping that our next trip to Sun Valley is in the summer months, and we will hopefully, make Casa de Ferg our home away from home on that trip as well.

Thanks, Steve, for a great stay in your beautiful home!

Sun Valley Summer!

  • 5 of 5

We love Elkhorn Springs... have stayed here for 9 summers and staying at Steve's was a highlight! Gorgeous home with absolutely everything you need and more! Light, bright ... fabulous living space. Meticulously organized and well appointed, we felt right at home. Beautiful outside living area with BBQ, dining and seating area, views and stream running through the backyard. And, complete quiet and privacy. Walk out the back door 50 yards to the Elkhorn golf course driving range or to some spectacular hikes up Dollar Mountain. Newly re-done tennis courts (including clay) and pool facilities are a 2 minute walk. Steve was super helpful and attentive. Highly recommend this property for summers (and winters too)!!

Notes:
*****FREE Amenities - By staying with us you have FREE access to all the Elkhorn Association Amenities but they require formal passes be issued to each guest and must be arranged prior to your arrival. Amenities are subject to closure in off seasons or during inclement weather, and hours of operation are designated by the Association. ******** We also have a wireless Laser Printer for your use that prints, scans, and makes copies. Oh yeah and that's free too, which comes in real handy in the unfortunate event you have to do some work while on vacation. ******** Fees: All our fees are 100% disclosed. Most hotels charge extra fees such as a resort, parking/valet, and/or high speed internet fee. For example: Sun Valley Resort charges a MANDITORY 6% 'Resort Fee'; so on a $5,000 stay that's an additional $336 including tax which may surprise you at check-out time (it's not included on their on-line reservation system quote).*****
