About Sonia and Chris Mehr
Thanks for having a look at our property and thinking about staying with us. Our place has most amenities that you would need to be comfortable and it is setup to make your visit to Yellowstone a memorable one. We fell in love with Yellowstone a long time ago and were able to finally own a property near this amazing national park. It maybe to surprising to hear that Yellowstone was the world's first national park but after your first visit to this magical place you realize why. Island Park is home to an amazing group of people and all of our neighbors have welcomed us and have become like family to us. We also enjoy Island Park because of its close proximity to Henry's Fork and Snake River. We spend most of our time canoeing in the river, visiting the park, fishing, and mountain biking the trails. Our place is equipped with everything you may need and we have tried very hard to ensure that it is as comfortable and welcoming as it can be. All of our guests are welcomed with a bottle of wine and we do our outmost best to ensure our property is clean and pleasant. The former is mainly due to our amazing cleaning lady who is a gem and does an amazing job keeping the place clean. Finally, VRBO has given us the chance to share our home from home with so many amazing people. We really enjoy providing this service to our guests and helping them enjoy the beauty of Idaho, Island Park, and Yellowstone. It is our pleasure to be your host and we always hope to have you back again. Sonia, Chris, and Mia

Our Sep Stay At A World Class Property
I stated it in my short note title this is a world class property. The price was more than we are accustomed to, however, the Pelican met our every expectation; it was extraordinary? The home was the cleanest I have ever seen, including pots and pans. Kitchen "stuff" is often times "overlooked", but not at the Pelican. The home is stunning, best views of the lake and the home decorated with elegance. Communication is paramount with me and Sonia and Chris were great. We didn't meet, but all still went perfectly. If you want the ultimate experience in a wonderful home, the Pelican ia a great choice.
Cabin on the Lake
Perfect! This place has everything and was an amazing place to have a vacation.
Incredible setting cabin for family reunion
This past weekend we had 15 relatives sleep overnight in this gorgeous (inside and out) cabin property and had approximately 50 to 60 each day come to the property for our family reunion. This was an incredible cabin for holding our reunion! There is a ton of space in the cabin and around the cabin including five large indoor socializing areas (living room, dining table, upstairs family room, downstairs theatre room, downstairs family/game room), large decks, beach, water and parking (in the large driveway not on the road - can accommodate 20 vehicles and lots of trail toys). The layout of the cabin is well organized with a private bathroom off of each of the six bedrooms, a large pantry adjacent to the large kitchen (with additional refrigerator and counter space - very convenient for a reunion/event bringing in a lot of food), and lots of deck chairs, couches, table/chairs for eating and socializing.
Our family determined that we will schedule here each year for our family reunion. Additionally, a couple of the business owners in our family stated that they will be holding executive retreats at this cabin and one engaged couple wants to hold their wedding at the cabin next summer as well. Repeated use should be a clear indicator of how fantastic this property is!
Our only recommendations would be more towels (beach towels, kitchen towels etc). And the cabin could use a deep clean such as under the beds, under the furniture, cobwebs and light fixtures etc.). All other widely used spaces in the cabin were very clean.
We highly recommend and look forward to our next visit!!!
Thank for accommodating our Montana and Chicago Families! Everyone loved the house and the beach. We appreciate your flexibility with check in time.
Wow! This place is gorgeous. Magnificant. Fantastic.
Where to start? This house is now the screensaver on my computer. EVERYTHING was perfect. I literally have to pull out my thesaurus to properly add positive adjectives to describe our experience. This was the best vacation home we've ever had the privilege to stay.
Very impressed with Chris and Sonia. Their communication was timely , clear, and professional as well as warm and courteous.
Their home was so tastefully decorated I'm sure everyone who stays would love to own such a place
The solid doors lead to the inside which was perfectly clean and inviting. A welcome gift was on the kitchen table.
The grounds were immaculate, though outdoor rustic. Nice combo. Beautiful landscaping. Right next to the water. Just like the pictures. But better.
The Kitchen was incredibly equipped with high end appliances. The adjacent laundry room/ pantry had an additional fridge and lots of space lending an air or practicality.
. We didn't need to ask Chris or Sonia for a thing, all was right there on hand.
Furniture was impressive and striking. Home décor was stunning. An architectural marvel.
Living space is open so the group of us could interact freely or we could go off to a private bedroom, turn on the fireplace, and read a book. Or quietly meditate as we looked out the huge windows at pelicans wafting by.
The bathrooms w each bedroom were fabulous. I loved the style so much my wife and I took multi pictures and will remodel our bathrooms at home to match. We hope you don't mind Chris and Sonia :)
The weather was a little chilly, but some of the braver ones of us took polar plunges. We took a boat up and was nice to have the dock just a skip away out the back door.
I loved the office and could only wish I had something so grand. Bose iPhone speaker allowed for beautiful Sunday Morning soothing music that reached thru the house.
We slept in the master bedroom and it was absolutely impressive to simply turn your head and look out the window to the mist rising off the early morning lake.
I took so many pictures my phone started to protest.
Chris and Sonia, It was an honor to be entrusted to stay in your house and we hope we can repeat it annually. And semi-seriously, if you ever wanna sell, let me know...
True Luxury and Great Hosts
Well this was a magnificent stay... The house is truly beautiful with amazing decor. The drive to Yellowstone was very scenic and we had quite a bit of peace and tranquility on this large lot. The hosts were there when we needed them and answered any questions we had. They truly went beyond our expectations and made our trip a truly memorable one. Thank you again and we will be back.
Hi Chris, we cannot thank you enough for taking the time to write us a review. I am glad we had the pack'n play to accommodate your little one . We really hope to have you back in the future.
