Sun Valley/Warm Springs Delight

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at Board Ranch was wonderful. The house and grounds exceeded our expectations. The kitchen was amazing and a delight to cook in. The huge yard was a perfect place to hang out, play and relax. Scott was friendly and easy to communicate with. We hope to return for another stay at his Board Ranch hide-a-way:-)

A very nice house in a very nice location

  • 5 of 5

We went up to Sun Valley for the first time, and met up with some friends there (none of whom had been there before). The house was expensive, but essentially we got what we paid for. The kitchen and living room are very large and open, and easily accommodated our large group. Everything was clean, tidy, and functional, as you would expect. The yard was well groomed, and large - we set up a volleyball net with space to spare, and the kids had a great time on the in-ground trampoline. The extra space above the garage was very useful as well. Bed space was good, again, accommodating our large group just fine. Outdoor grill worked well and is reasonably sized. Garage accommodates two large vehicles (ours are 7+ feet tall), and is very neat. Hot tub was very nice as well, and games, etc. ample.

House sits in the middle of two fairly tall hills (roughly 2400' elevation gain from the house), and at night the stars are really something, as light pollution is at a minimum. The house is far enough removed from town (3-4 miles) to enjoy the solitude, but near enough to run down to the grocery store in fairly short order (10-15 min). The neighborhood was quiet (well, at least before we got there...), although there was some construction going on during the day (but that was not bothersome).

A few minor nits (that do not detract from the 5 star rating):

- the land line phone didn't work at first - we informed the owner of this issue, and he stopped by with a functioning phone the next day. (By the way, the cell service at the house was poor - we have Verizon. However, we noted that if you drove down the road around half a mile or maybe a mile, the service was adequate)

- refrigerator space - we could have used more. Although the fridge in the house is pretty big, our large group needed more. There is a very small fridge in the quarters above the garage, but it is too small to be of much practical use for primary storage. A suggestion would be a supplemental fridge perhaps in the garage.

- upstairs master bedroom - great room, very spacious and beautiful, but it has no door - once you get up the stairs, you are in it. From a sound perspective, would be nice to have some sort of barrier, so the kids don't wander upstairs and disturb anyone...

- the light switches in the living room/kitchen are hard to figure out, both location and which is which - we never did get it quite figured out. Some labels (like the front entry panel) would help.

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.
