This log home is situated at the base of the Sawtooth Mountains just outside the rustic town of Stanley in the heart of the Sawtooth National Recreation Area. It has one of the most spectacular views of the Sawtooth Mountains as any property in the area and offers guests luxury, privacy and affordability. The living room, dining room, master bedroom and bunk room each have large picture windows looking out toward the Sawtooth's so they can be enjoyed from sunrise to sunset. The master bathroom has a jetted tub with barn doors that open to the master bedroom and look out toward the mountains as well. It is tastefully furnished with hand-made log beds and a 680 sq. ft. iron wood deck with picnic table and benches.

The property is a mecca for white water river rafting, kayaking, mountain biking, rock climbing, blue ribbon fly-fishing, steelhead fishing, hunting, hiking and horseback riding. There are over 60 miles of groomed snowmobile trails in the winter and countless areas for snowshoeing and cross country skiing. It is 10 minutes from Redfish Lake Lodge offering boating, water skiing, canoing and swimming. This property is perfect for anyone who wants to get-away from the city to relax and enjoy the outdoors and yet is an easy one-hour drive over beautiful Galena Pass to all the amenities and activities of Sun Valley.

Lovely place to stay

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful trip to Stanley and the Sawtooths and enjoyed immensely our stay at this gorgeous VRBO. The pictures do not do the view justice - the view from the backyard is incredible, and probably the best view you can find for a rental in the area. The home itself was comfortable and perfect for a family or really anyone trying to enjoy the area. You are right in town, but still relatively isolated from other homes, and this is a convenient gateway to the area. Make sure to check out the stars at night! The only reason we didn't give it a 5 was some of the surfaces could have been a tad bit cleaner when we arrived (nothing too glaring and not a big deal or reason not to book this home). The manager was responsive and helpful and also made this a good experience. We appreciate how quickly they followed up with us when planning the trip and afterward. We would definitely recommend this as a place to stay and would book again if coming to the area.

The home was clean and well decorated with comfortable furniture. We had a wonderful stay. We will definitely return. The only thing that would substantially improve the property is the addition of a hot tub!

Overall, could not have done much better than this place in Stanley.

Stunning View and Excellent Accomidations

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here and loved it. The setting is perfect and few places in Stanley offer a view like this place. With only a short drive into Stanley, and easy access to everything there is to do in the area, this home was perfect for us to enjoy the beautiful area. We highly recommend it!

Stunning Views of the Sawtooth Mountains

  • 5 of 5

This beautifully designed and constructed log home has stunning views of the Sawtooth Mountains! The expansiveness of the glass in the living and dining areas provides a feeling of enormous spaciousness, plus it’s fabulous to eat meals out on the deck and take in the most beautiful views imaginable, including incredible sunsets and lightning storms. The master bedroom and upstairs bunk room also have lovely views.

The house is extremely comfortable, and everything is first rate from the linens to the pots and pans. One of our favorite vacation rentals ever – and we’ve stayed in over 12 beautiful homes in the US, Europe and Asia.

Three and no more....

  • 3 of 5

The cabin is as beautiful as discribed and the pictures are true. This is a wonderful back drop for any occassion. However, it is better to only have one family stay. Due to the vehicle restiction, the owners kept half our deposit, because we had four vehicles on the property. Our children and relatives where able to gather there only by carpool or drop offs. No unannouced guests!!! The neighbor would come over threatening and warning to get the extra cars off the driveway. We didn't invite the brides mom to come over with the flowers asking for fridge space, nor did we expect our nieces to come to see us. We enjoyed all the towels on site and the gathering space for our loved ones. The view is awesome. (There was no damage done. We left it cleaner than we found it.)

Beautiful home with spectacular view!

  • 5 of 5

I love this house! It's absolutely charming, clean, cozy and so peaceful! It has a spectacular view of the Sawtooths and the deck is perfect for evening sunset gazing. It's a short walk into town and just a few miles from all of the hiking, fishing, and kayaking you could dream of. It was perfect for our family vacation; we'll definitely be back!
