  • Our first VRBO experience was wonderful.

    "This home was nearly perfect for our family of five. We were able to use it as a base for a number of day trips, and it was much more inviting to return to than a hotel room. It was a bit further from some of our daily destinations than we had planned for, but only once did that become a deciding factor in whether to go or not. We were able to get to the Jenny Lake area of the Tetons easily, and for a bit longer day trip, to the geysers and other nearby sights of Yellowstone via the south entrance. Our visit to the Bar-J ranch was an unexpected highlight - great food and music. We did a bit of hiking in the hills near SVR which provided a fantastic view of the valley. The room spaces were comfortably large. One teen slept on the couch which was preferred over the folding mattress that was available. The roll-away bed was used by another teen, which was acceptable. The teen in the king bed had no complaints! The shower on the main floor was a bit tricky to use because the combination of shower head, curtains, and wood trim. It took some getting used to in order to avoid getting a lot of water everywhere, and keeping the curtains from clinging to yourself. But it was manageable. Powered vents in the two bathrooms would be a worthwhile upgrade. Having cookware and appliances available, including a BBQ grill, allowed our cooks to make great meals and avoid having to eat restaurant food all of the time. A generous neighbor provided free access to his stand of raspberry bushes which was much appreciated. We didn't golf, but it was right there if we wanted to. I'm a runner and the roads in and around SVR were fine for a higher-elevation running experience, and had live animals to look at as a bonus. The property owner was just a phone call/text away when we needed something. They did a first-rate job of communicating both before and during the trip. The view of the hills to the east was incredible. We had forgotten what the night time sky looked like - amazing! It was so quiet - really quiet. You might hear folks leaving for work in the morning, or an occasional ping of someone hitting a golf ball, but other than that, it was practically silent. We hope to return to Wyoming for another vacation and would highly recommend this home!"

  • Always the Best Stay

    "This is the perfect place for quiet. Nothing but trees, mountains, and deer. And the stream behind the cottage is relaxing to hear. We have stayed on 2 occasions and will do so again."

  • Impressive use of a great get-a-way space

    "Visiting Star Valley to attend a family reunion in Afton. This property in Thayne is a few miles north of Afton, and served our family of 4 as a great place to "escape" Easy to find and quiet, our host (Von) was very welcoming and we enjoyed a nice visit on the porch. The views from the kitchen window are stunning. The beds are comfy, (although maybe a little big for the room size). Kitchen well equipped and a nice selection of books to read through made our trip a memorable one. The internet access was a dilemma for our teenager (poor kid), and there was a problem with the satellite TV service while we were there, but the owner said that was a new issue, and he was working on solving it. So, all in all a great place! If I have only one complaint, it was the couch and chairs in the sitting area...they were not remotely comfortable."
