About Laura Defty

Our family has been visiting the Alpine area and Alpine airpark for only a couple of years, but we have enjoyed the most every visit. We enjoy the summer with all the fishing, rafting, and hiking. During the winter, we take out our snowmobiles and hit the fresh powder and hundreds of miles of trails with our kids. No matter what time of year we are here, not only do we enjoy the incredible beauty of this area, but we enjoy the community and people and how they always make us feel welcome.

Laura Defty purchased this house in 2010

Why Laura Defty chose Star Valley

Our property has so many great features, from being recently remodeled, to having a hanger for your airplane, to accommodate your family comfortably. The kitchen is fully stocked and ready for your arrival. We have coffee and seasonings and all the cooking ware you should need.

What makes this house unique

The unique benefits would be to have a 40' x 36' airplane hanger to use and a late model vehicle (additional charges will apply).

We also have a lovely back porch that looks over the Airpark and has partial views of Lake Palisades.

An Amazing 4th of July

  • 5 of 5

This house has an excellent deck to relax on both front and back with views of the mountain ranges so bring a spotting scope for the mountain goats! In the back yard you'll be able to enjoy planes and helicopters taking off from the runway. Once the sun starts to die down enjoy the spectacular view of the mountains and sunset. Once the sun has gone down unpack the camping chairs you brought and sit around the camp fire! The house is spacious and was big enough to accommodate all 10 of us staying there. I hope to stay here again and the friends we were with are already booking it again!

Loved It

  • 5 of 5

We so enjoyed our stay in July of 2015 and hope to do it again in 2017. I am sorry took so long to review. We loved everything. The large back yard and fire pit was great. It was close to running River and spent day on lake to that was so close. We highly recommend this place to anyone. Might add you could use that den as a bedroom as we did using a blow up queen mattress fitted in there great. Thanks again. Terri

The cabin was beautiful and everything was as it said it was on line. There was plenty of room for everyone to sleep and the maintenance person was very helpful. Responded right away. Well organized people. Would definitely recommend this stay to anyone.

Very Nice house

  • 5 of 5

We had a group of 5 guys stay here for a 7 day snowmobile trip. The house worked great. It was clean and in great condition when we arrived. No major complaints. We have been renting houses in different locations with this same group of guys out West for 5 years now. Some in our group are picky dudes who are usually always complaining about the quality and comfort of the beds- not one of us was unhappy with the beds in the house! We had one minor 'wish'; we would've liked a TV in the family room instead of the loft. The family room is always the 'natural' gathering place right off the kitchen in any home. The loft just felt like you were too far away and 'apart' from everyone else. The loft would be great place to add a few extra bunk beds though! Anyway, like I said, this is not a deal breaker by any means. And I'm sure some people are fine without a TV in Family. We would've preferred it.
