We had a fabulous vacation at this stunningly unique and newly reconfigured large home at the Elkhorn Inn at Sun Valley. A former banquet facility/ restaurant, the layout, the beautiful and quality furnishings and appointments, and the expansive deck were attractive and most accommodating for our family of 8 adults and 4 young children. The large open spaces afforded everyone plenty of room for socializing or a private corner to sip tea or read a book. Check out the floor plan amongst the photo stream and you will see 5 master suites that have transformed this facility to a great vacation spot for a retreat, reunion, or large family getaway. The manager with whom I spoke in advance, long distance, was helpful to me in planning our visit, as we had never been there, with good suggestions and fine recommendations. The managers on site (residing within a few miles) were more than responsive and arrived at a moment's notice at the slightest issue. They were friendly and kind and yet did not intrude at all on our privacy. The enormous deck is lovely for meals of all sorts, as bugs were not a problem and weather was so pleasant. (We were there in the summer). We witnessed the Hailey (airport town 20 minutes away) parade on July 4 - an authentic piece of the Americana tradition which the whole area turned our for! The town of Ketchum, a mere 5-10 minute journey by car or the regular bus service right outside, is a fun place to explore, with an abundance of restaurants and art galleries and the like. There is no lacking of activity in the area: hiking, biking, walking, tennis, swimming, golfing, fishing, boating, exploring - we did all this and more!
If you are considering a vacation here, definitely go for it!!
