Guestbook comments from the owner

For a family reunion (3 generations) of 5 children and 11 grandchildren, this property was much more than I ever expected or hoped to find and be able to rent in the Sun Valley area. It is totally private, in a beautiful wooded setting of 11 acres and yet close to downtown for the shopping and Elkhorn facilities, where some jogged for swimming. With grandchildren ranging from 7 to 25 yrs old, there was something going on for fun all day. The grass hillside provided a great place for passing the lacrosse ball, tossing a football, group yoga or playing frisbee, while the pond was perfect for learning and practicing fly casting. The tennis courts are professional quality. The hot tub was much enjoyed, and the big deck of the dining room was in constant use.

As for the accommodations, the kitchen is very large and well designed for 3 or 4 cooks working together behind the island and many more on the stool side. The main house is magnificent log house, spacious, comfortable furniture, and very tastefully decorated. The large master suite on the first floor is outstanding. The guest house is private and attractive and the garage apartment, very convenient to the main house. The extra large garage area was extremely useful. The single deficiency was only one bathroom on the lower level to serve 3 very nice bedrooms. Altogether, the property is one of a kind and ideal for a large group. The grounds and house are well maintained and very clean.

Wonderful location for a family and friends reunion.

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful home with all necessary supplies and equipment to make wonderful meals at indoor and outdoor large tables. Comfortable beds and easy accommodations for large group. Beautiful grounds, great star-gazing, access to easy hiking, loved the catch and release trout pond. Owner Scott Curtis was very accommodating to our group's needs and responsive to concerns. Loved this quiet country home. We will try to come back here again!

awesome family vacation spot

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for 5 days for our mom's 70th birthday celebration. It was perfect.It's a beautiful, quiet and private home. Great spot and so much to do. Plenty of room for everyone and kitchen had all the necessities. We cooked in the house a few times, watched Wimbledon on the TV, used the tennis courts as well as fishing and swimming in the pond. We did leave for a few activities like river rafting and shooting at the gun club. It was a blast! We would love to go back. Scott was very attentive and helpful. A lot of history in this property. :)

Secluded, but so good!

  • 5 of 5

My 4 kids and myself came to Sun Valley for a wedding and booked this house for it's trout pond right of the back porch. My 3 boys must've fished there at least 3-4 hours each day. The house itself was huge, comfortable and well stocked with everything we needed. I even had Atkinson's Market deliver a fridge full of food before we arrived! Every day was a new adventure; whether exploring the large property, playing tennis or using the hot tub, or taking a short drive to the natural hot springs and relaxing in nature's own spa. I even hired a guide to teach my boys how to fly fish, and they had the time of their life! This spacious house was the favorite of all the others we have stayed in, probably because you can have an incredible game of Hide and go Seek! We will definitely be returning to this "cabin."

Family reunion getaway

  • 3 of 5

We hosted a large family reunion at this location. We had primarily young adults with small children and grandparents included.

Activities we really enjoyed:

Kayaking at Redfish lake

The arts festival.

Painting ceramics at Local Color

Fly fishing on the river

Window shopping downtown


It is private.

It is away from the crowds of town.

It is roomy enough for a diverse group.


It was cleaned very hastily between groups.

The fish ponds are catch and release for fly fishing only.

The tennis courts are used by an instructor during the cool morning hours.

The dog was asked to stay outside.

We were a bit disappointed in some aspects of this house due to the price we paid but as a whole but our group loved our Sun Valley vacation.

Owner's Response: Julia, I am so glad you enjoyed your stay in Sun Valley!!! I am so sorry about the hasty cleaning job I will speak with my house keeping, I wish you would have called immediately so I could of rectified the situation. As for the tennis courts and fishing it stated in the details on the VBRO website that ponds were catch and release and that there are 2 tennis courts so one is always open. Thank you for staying at our property. Scott Curtis

House Review
