Beautiful and comfortable! Really enjoyed our time there!

  • 5 of 5

Loved the open floor plan, kitchen and decks! Although close to the highway it made easy access. The beds were quite comfortable. The owners very responsive to all our inquiries

This house is perfect! It's beautifully decorated, very clean, extremely comfortable and equipped with everything you would need. Sue is helpful and easy to work with, too. We enjoyed our stay in Alpine and plan on returning soon. Many thanks to the Dolph's for sharing their home with us.

This is THE best VRBO in Star Valley!

  • 5 of 5

This is our fifth visit to this Amazing Cabin/Home in Alpine which should speak for itself. As we open the door, we all feel like "We're HOME" which is quite an accomplishment. We have been completely spoiled by the owners attention to every detail to make their guests feel comfortable. The beds will give you your best sleep ever, the kitchen has everything you would possibly need and the grocery store is 1/2 mile away for added convenience. An earlier review commented on how close the highway is. As a clarification, you do not hear any outside noise when you're inside the home and we happen to enjoy sleeping with windows open and have never had a problem with any highway noise. The views out the spacious living room windows are incredible of the passing clouds and even washing dishes is a pleasure as you look out at natures finest. I posted several pictures on Face Book of where we got to call "home" for the weekend, and had numerous responses wanting an invitation or to get the booking details. This is truly the Best of the Best in my book!

Beautiful home!!

  • 4 of 5

This home was very nice and had everything you would need for a comfortable stay. Great layout for a couple of families to share, big garage, and close to the Tetons without the Teton price. The only thing I was surprised about was it's proximity to the highway. The pictures didn't really reflect that, and the beautiful views are really only from the balconies. Overall super place though. I would love to stay here again!!!
