Why Denzel and Mary Rowland chose Hailey

Property passed down from mother and father. Originally a homesteaded ranch, the cabin was built in the Scandinavian style by my father, brother, and husband in 1974. Over the years the ranch has been used for hay farming, barley production, horses, and cattle. Elk Creek directly out the front door of the cabin runs year round. Wildlife abounds.

What makes this cabin unique

Cozy, comfortable, quiet and peaceful. Private and secluded but close to town for restaurants and a myriad of activities and services.

My husband and I , and our two dogs, had the most peaceful, nature oriented stay at Red Elephant Ranch last week in the middle of October. The owner, Mary, is so delightful and caring, and she loves dogs! Mary had the cabin all ready for us with all the personal touches of home. There was a basket of cookies , a bottle of wine ; and the wood burning stove greeted us with a cozy warmth as we stepped in to the Swedish cabin. If you want to be away from everything with every window view full of beautiful mountains, golden wheat pastures, a light dappled , bubbling creek, and herds of sheep and cows roaming back and forth; then this is the place for you. You can unplug with ease and forget about your troubles at The Red Elephant Ranch. We highly recommend staying at this little slice of heaven! Thank you Mary! xoxo

One of a kind Idaho rental that must be seen

  • 5 of 5

Our family has stayed at many summer rental properties over the years. The Red Elephant Ranch is hands down our favorite location. The true Idaho experience that you have when staying in this rustic cabin is a one of a kind experience. The owner Mary is very accommodating. We have stayed at this property for the last three summers, the kids loved the brook that runs through the property and all the wildlife that they had seen during our stay. If you want to get away from it all yet be close to town, this is the place to stay.

Perfect cabin and location to relax.

  • 5 of 5

The cabin and the whole experience was absolutely great. We found ourselves opting to stay in at the cabin, relaxing, playing cards and boardgames, building a fire, instead of venturing out as much as we thought we would. The property was great as well. It was peaceful and we enjoyed walking around, taking it all in.

Mary, the owner, and Eric, the caretaker , were absolutely great. The communication from booking to the end of the stay was perfect. We were well informed and everything was as expected.

We can't wait to visit again! Thanks again Mary for everything!

Simply Magical!

  • 5 of 5

My husband, myself and our 2 dogs stayed at this property for about a month. It was absolutely wonderful! We read in a previous review and Mary the owner said it to us too, "you'll never want to leave". They were right! There is something almost magical about this place. You feel this amazing sense of calm and contentment with a splash of curiosity.

The property is spectacular! There are numerous places in the yard to sit and enjoy the scenery. With the way the property is situated you have 360° views. Both my husband and I worked remotely while here and 80% of the time my office was outside on the deck or by the creek. It was a dream! If you have to work while here the Wifi is great and our cell phone service worked perfectly. I don’t think I’ve seen our dogs happier either! The yard is fenced in and they could roam freely. There was so much for them to see, sniff and explore. The yard was full of green lush grass that they could roll, run and nap in. The free range cattle were grazing around us and that was constant visual stimulation for them. It was doggie paradise.

The cabin itself was very welcoming. You could see and feel the pride in the craftsmanship of the home. I loved wandering around and finding little bits of history throughout it. It seemed like everything had meaning, a purpose and a story. We stayed in the bedroom downstairs and it was very comfy. My husband and I remarked at how well we slept here. The house has everything you need.

We also fell in love with the town and surrounding areas. The people in Hailey are so friendly and Ketchum/Sun Valley has so much to offer for the outdoor enthusiast. We hiked every evening with our dogs and rarely repeated a trail. The area is very dog friendly. The views were breathtaking, from rolling hills to the national forest to Wood River. Something for everyone!

We've rented numerous vacation rentals over the past 7+ years and I’ve never met an owner like Mary. She called a couple of times to see how we were doing. I found myself swapping stories and pictures with her about our adventures. You could tell she knew that the place was special and she genuinely wanted you to feel that too.

I really can’t say enough about how much we loved this place! We’d been traveling all summer renting vacation rentals along the way and this was our favorite! I’ve been sharing our journey with our friends and family and this place quickly became a favorite with them too! We can’t wait to come back!
