Spacious, beautiful, and convenient!

  • 5 of 5

I came to Stanley with a group of friends for wedding and had the perfect stay at casa Stanley!! This house is such a gem. Large kitchen, comfortable beds (we all slept so well!), hot tub, large deck, and great showers. It was perfect for relaxing, and would also be good for entertaining a family or group of friends. The house was fit with everything we needed from linens to pots/pans for breakfast, to laundry. The view from the backyard deck was unreal-- like living in a postcard! That alone was worth a trip to Stanley. The location could not have been better- just a 6 or 7 minute stroll to all the shops and town square. We all felt lucky to have found this place -- many thanks to the kind owners, Jocelyn and Doug!

Perfect Stay in Stanley

  • 5 of 5

Our 1st visit to Stanley was made perfect by choosing Casa Stanley log cabin to call home.

The cabin was close to everything in town and yet relaxing on the private back porch with hot tub and meandering small river in the back yard. We saw deer, ducks, and even a red fox near by. Beautiful! The home was welcoming, comfortable and clean with room to share breakfast in the kitchen and play Scrabble in the living room. We had a fun evening out at Stanley Kasino Club. We hiked the Sawtooth mountains by taking the water shuttle at Redfish Lake and found the local natural hot springs all Amazing! We recommend eating at both Redfish Restaurant and Bridge Street Grill. Delicious and beautiful views!
