Elkhorn Village Inn
The ONLY shortcoming of this Inn is that it doesn’t have a large functional kitchen. So for families/groups who plan on cooking meals/large dinners at night this may not be the right place. The 5 bedrooms are right together down one hallway which was fine for us as we are a family, not sure how it would work with 5 couples? The owner Dave was great and a terrific communicator and Taylor and Joe who checked us in were awesome and very responsive to our text.
Two negatives that don’t have anything to do with the home but with all the rules of Elkhorn HOA. We had two young grandchildren (2/1 yrs) and the first time we went to the pool we were 1 of 5 families with young children who were told that the kids could not use their life saving US Coast Guard approved flotation devices at any time in the pool! (I’m not talking about floaty wings or inflatable tubes) every family at the pool had the same strap on, face up device. It was ridiculous and certainly curtailed our family use of the pool! A lot of angry parents left the pool! In addition, the popular game of pickle ball, we took two lessons, is forbidden after 4:00 PM (just when it begins to cool off in the summer) you can play tennis until 7:00 but not pickle ball. Guess there’s an ongoing battle between pickle ball players and the townhomes HOA next to the courts but it’s hard to watch the sun stay up until 8:30/9:00 PM and all the courts across the street empty when we could have been playing. Definitely a consideration for future rental within Elkhorn!!
Summary....House was great (save the limited kitchen area) management
5 ⭐️ ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Elkhorn HOA and amenities 1 ⭐️
Thanks Wendy! We are really glad you had a nice stay at the Inn. We are actually renovating the kitchen in November so that it will be more functional for big parties and so the aesthetics will match the rest of the home. I apologize again that the HOA is so stringent. We are going to have another talk with them. We would love to have you again 2020!
Elkhorn Inn - Lovely Trip
My family and I had a wonderful stay at the Elkhorn Inn. The team was very responsive and helped us get settled in very quickly.
The space is overwhelming, it has a beautiful open-concept design. Downtown Ketchum is filled with shops and so many things to do. We spent our days in the sunshine and our nights inside the warm cozy atmosphere.
We will definitely be staying again on our next trip to Sun Valley (hopefully next time in the winter so we can try the world-famous skiing).
Catherine, glad you could stay at the Inn! Hope you come back in the winter for the ski season. Be well!
Very low humidity and Very high recommendation!
We had a fabulous vacation at this stunningly unique and newly reconfigured large home at the Elkhorn Inn at Sun Valley. A former banquet facility/ restaurant, the layout, the beautiful and quality furnishings and appointments, and the expansive deck were attractive and most accommodating for our family of 8 adults and 4 young children. The large open spaces afforded everyone plenty of room for socializing or a private corner to sip tea or read a book. Check out the floor plan amongst the photo stream and you will see 5 master suites that have transformed this facility to a great vacation spot for a retreat, reunion, or large family getaway. The manager with whom I spoke in advance, long distance, was helpful to me in planning our visit, as we had never been there, with good suggestions and fine recommendations. The managers on site (residing within a few miles) were more than responsive and arrived at a moment's notice at the slightest issue. They were friendly and kind and yet did not intrude at all on our privacy. The enormous deck is lovely for meals of all sorts, as bugs were not a problem and weather was so pleasant. (We were there in the summer). We witnessed the Hailey (airport town 20 minutes away) parade on July 4 - an authentic piece of the Americana tradition which the whole area turned our for! The town of Ketchum, a mere 5-10 minute journey by car or the regular bus service right outside, is a fun place to explore, with an abundance of restaurants and art galleries and the like. There is no lacking of activity in the area: hiking, biking, walking, tennis, swimming, golfing, fishing, boating, exploring - we did all this and more!
If you are considering a vacation here, definitely go for it!!
Thank you Joan, it was wonderful having you and your family. Glad you were able to see the Hailey Parade while you were here and do something fishing out on the deck!
I recently booked the Elkhorn Inn and was blown away by the attention to detail. The craftsmanship, the furnishings, and the decor in the home were marvelous. A little slice of paradise in beautiful Sun Valley. I highly recommend to anyone who wants to get away on a blissful vacation, gather with friends or host an intimate family event.
Glad you had a peaceful stay. We'd love to have you back out again.
Sun Valley Paradise
The place was absolutely gorgeous! Plenty of room for the whole family. The bar was an amazing touch for entertaining, especially with the fireplace. To top it all off the views of the mountains & pond were breathtaking. The shuttle made it so convenient to use the pools & get to downtown Ketchum. Perfect relaxing vacation with everything needed. I want to come back in the winter to hit the slopes!
Thanks for your kind words Bethany. It was great that you were able to take the complimentary shuttle to see your friends staying at the Sun Valley Lodge and swim over there. Glad we could assist.
Sun Valley Defined
We enjoyed our time staying at Elkhorn Village. It was right in the middle of everything we wanted to do and see, yet it was still quiet and felt very homey.
The details and all of the interior decor were very much what you would expect at a great hotel or luxury home. Everything was new and comfortable as well.
Would recommend this to any of my friends. My wife is looking forward to going back again. Overall a great place and a good time!

Thank you Jeff. I'm glad the Elkhorn Inn was able to provide you with all the amenities you wanted (fishing, swimming, hiking, tennis, golf, etc.) The Elkhorn Community is a great place to be in the summer.
