About Sheri Freer

Hello - We are Mike and Sheri Freer. We grew up in Flagstaff , Arizona and enjoyed 34 years there. Mike grew up spending his childhood summers in Featherville with his siblings and cousins every year. We decided to make the change and moved our four children to Featherville in 2006. Mike built our home and we lived there for 4 years while our children were still young. Those are precious years to our family. When our oldest needed to go to high school we moved to Mountain Home. We currently reside here in Mountain Home and escape to Featherville as often as possible. It is peaceful and quiet and more fun than anywhere else in the world. We hope you will enjoy it as much as we do.

Sheri Freer purchased this house in 2006

Why Sheri Freer chose Featherville

This is a great property to spend your winter or summer vacation. It is away from the crowds and allows you time to reconnect with your family and friends. We found that 2-3 families really can enjoy it together. It will accomodate everyones wants in a vacation. Those who want to read quietly by the river or the fire can enjoy that while the others play outside with many different outdoor activities. The house is also set up in a way that those who want to watch a movie and/or play games(i.e. kids) can be closed off by a door while the others(adults) can enjoy a quiet conversation downstairs by the fire or on the patio.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you so much for sharing your gorgeous home with us. The view is just stunning. The quiet except for the rush of the river and the call of the birds was just what we needed. The house was extremely comfortable, with the toys, the swing set and the lawn...the kids couldn't have been happier. Sheri.. we loved your home cooked food, so overall it was just the R & R we needed! Thank you for being such wonderful hosts!

WOW! Amazing house in a fantastic location.

  • 5 of 5

10 of us spent 5 nights at the house. We were all very comfortable. Mike and Sheri are gracious hosts. The house exceeded any expectations. The house has all the amenities your would expect and a lot more. We made all of our meals at the house in the fully equipped gourmet kitchen. Spent hours enjoying fires in the great room and around the fire pit at the edge of the river. The location is just incredible! The area has endless outdoor recreation possibilities. We spent 4 days exploring nearby trails and maybe saw 4% of whats there. We definitely hope to return!

Beautiful Home!

  • 5 of 5

Really just a perfect place. The set up of the home is wonderful! It is a quiet and perfectly picturesque setting. The house itself has a nice big family room and dining area with full windows facing the river and mountains. The river is just a few short steps outside the back door. The rooms are all spacious. It snowed 4-5 inches the first day we were there making the setting ideal! Overall this is a great place that is close to hiking trails, hot springs, and of course the river. The owners are wonderful and very responsive. My only recommendation is to fully stock up on your food supplies before arriving. The two closest stores while very nice- were pretty limited on variety for food.

Amazing place you don't want to leave

  • 5 of 5

Secluded and quiet. The river provides all the sounds you need. The views from the house are amazing and the comforts are great! We saw elk in the yard and wading the river. The home itself is spacious and inviting. We had more than enough space for our large party of people. 2 fridges to hold all the food. Beds were comfy. Two things of note: the dishwasher didn't work but it looked like a new one was in the garage ready for install soon. Hand washing dishes for our large party was annoying and time consuming. There was no direct tv or dish network to catch the games or shows on. I brought chromecast and streamed from the wifi - but the DSL is slow - we later found roku device but some instructions in the welcome book would be cool. Overall we loved the place and are looking forward to coming back!
