Why The Owner chose Sun Valley Area

Sun Valley is great for snow sports in the winter and offers countless gorgeous outdoor activities in the summer.

What makes this house unique

We prefer the Elkhorn area because it stays lighter longer than in town. It's centrally located: easy access to either Baldy or Dollar Mountain, the town of Ketchum or Sun Valley Lodge (and ice skating rink). It's so quiet, except for the welcome sound of a snowploy clearing away the night's snowfall on the roads!

Guestbook comments from the owner

The security deposit check was in the mail so thanks for sending that back so quickly. We truly enjoyed our month at your home. SV and Elkhorn offer so many amenities and the perfect weather in which to do them. We are hooked on this ... and to think it's only a few hours' drive from the grandkids!

We're already talking about next summer...

Lovely Elkhorn House in Sun Valley
average rating of 5.0 based on 12 reviews

Great house and location for our 2-family skiing vacation to Sun Valley

  • 5 of 5

We went to Sun Valley for the first time to ski over xmas week and rented Kris' lovely home for our group of 8 - two families, each with two parents and two kids. It was well located for us (5 mins to dollar mountain lifts, 10 mins to River Run / 15 mins to Warm Springs at Baldy) and easy to get in and out. The Elkhorn area is great - roads and driveway are promptly plowed and we were fine getting around with a 2-wheel drive car. There is one available garage spot, which was fine for us as we parked our second car in the driveway, and the house was very nice. Everyone was comfortable and happy for our 6-night stay. We would definitely go again, summer or winter...

Does not disappoint!

  • 5 of 5

We visited Sun Valley again this summer and were lucky enough to get this home to rent again (rented in 2011, but could not get it in 2012). We had a wonderful time. The home was perfect, location was fantastic for everything we wanted to do in the area. While we did get to experience the Beaver Creek forest fires, no one could have predicted that and we were thankful to have the wonderful home to come back to each day and night!

Spectacular place to stay

  • 5 of 5

We travelled from MN to meet up with other family for our annual trip to Sun Valley and absolutely had the best time staying in this lovely home. It had everything that we could need or desire for both young and old. The quick walk to the Harker Center was priceless and quickly became a daily ritual. My apologies for the delayed review!

  • 5 of 5

Our family enjoyed a three night stay at this beautiful home in July 2009. The owners were great to work with and made the rental process easy as pie. We found the home to be very clean, comfortable, well appointed, and perfect for our stay in Sun Valley. The kitchen and baths were striking and modern-- the living spaces tastefully decorated, comfortable, and great for spending time together. As an added bonus, the community center and pool was just short walk from the home. All in all, I would definitely stay there again and would highly recommend it anyone planning a visit to area.
