Stunning Stanley Property

  • 5 of 5

The property and VRBO experience were excellent. We found the cabin very clean and well stocked. The setting was perfect for my fly fisherman husband with the creek outside the door. The interior of the cabin was decorated beautifully. I appreciated being able to contact the owner on a few occasions and she responded immediately. We were delighted to wake up to light snow in the morning along with the song of birds and Canadian Geese on the lawn. It doesn’t get any better than this!

The perfect home base to outdoor adventure

  • 5 of 5

This home was perfect for our group of four adults, one toddler, and dog for the week. It was walking distance to town, the Salmon and Valley Creek river to fish, and only a few miles of driving to access a variety of trails for hiking and mountain biking, House was well appointed with everything you could possibly need. The outdoor patio and dining table was perfect to enjoy evening dinners and watch the sun go down. We'll definitely be back to Stanley and hope to rent this place again.

It is a well built home situated in a picturesque valley. Very responsive owner.

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time sharing the beautiful guesthouse with our old friends from college. The kitchen is well stocked. The patio allows us to relax with stunning views. I love the bonus living area between upstairs bedrooms. With two crates set up downstairs for my dogs, we still have plenty space to enjoy cooking, eating, and chatting as a group.

Owner was super responsive to all my questions before the trip, and our requests after checkin were all quickly resolved from housekeeping.

Riverside eclipse 8/21/17

  • 4 of 5

As in previous reviews, our accommodations were nice but it was very warm inside due to lack of opening windows. The owners did provide portable fans but it would be nice if they would install ceiling fans. We did bring a few extra people which made it even hotter inside. Also, the loft bedroom made you feel as if you were in the kitchen if anyone was awake before you. The McDonald's were very accommodating and friendly as their own house is attached to the guest house where we stayed. It would be nice to have a blender and electric hand mixer but we made due with what was available. The nearby foothills made it a spectacular viewing spot for the Great American Eclipse. Only complaint ( other then the fans) is that there are some electrical issues that weren't addressed as promised. No big deal in the grand scheme of things.we had a great time. Thanks Rain.

Outstanding place to stay in Stanley!

  • 5 of 5

This place is even better than it appears. It is very private with easy access to all the outdoor activities the Stanley area has to offer. With Valley Creek right in the backyard, it is an awesome place for fly fishing enthusiasts. The home is in good condition with lots of room to spread out. We spent a lot of evening time on the back deck enjoying cocktails while viewing the beautiful Sawtooths'. Highly recommended!

Nearest Airport
75 Miles
Nearest Motorway
1 Miles
Car: necessary

Walk into Stanley (less than 1 mile) or head right out your door for both single and double track trails. Located on Valley Creek and less than .5 miles from the convergence to the Salmon river, river sports are just a stone's throw away. Epic views of the Sawtooth Mountains if staying close to home is more your style.
