About Steve Ferguson

We've been coming to Sun Valley since 1994 and we love the Wood River Valley because of the amazing recreational opportunities it offers. We've visited a lot of resort towns and although Sun Valley is the oldest resort town in the United States, it's also the best, since it was designed from the beginning to be a resort town. The 30+ miles of paved bike paths around the valley are outstanding. With world class fishing, downhill/cross country skiing, biking, hiking, art galleries, restaurants, and the best public access to recreation opportunities make Sun Valley the best.

In short, we love it here!

Steve Ferguson purchased this townhome in 2013

Why Steve Ferguson chose Elkhorn Village

Elkhorn Village is surprising enjoyable, quite, and central access to everything. Our property is well maintained and clean; its not your typical rental because we live in it on occasion so it's well stocked for your stay. The Elkhorn amenities are a huge bonus with 2 relaxing pools (in Summer), a large hot tub for that post ski soak, discounted golf, and outstanding tennis courts. We hope you enjoy the place as much as we do.

What makes this townhome unique

We take great pride in our place, feel very fortunate to own a beautiful home in Sun Valley and strive to provide a quality stay for our guests. We stay here about 10 weeks a year so the place is outfitted better than most of the other rentals.

Some highlights:

-Awesome Kitchen & Great room, open/bright floor plan

-Relaxing backyard & waterfall

-Each bedroom is a 'suite' with its own private bath

-Know the weather before you head out with our Davis Instruments on site weather station.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Via email from our guest: "Absolutely loved your house! It was everything we were looking for….and more. It was furnished beautifully, the kitchen was well stocked, the beds were so comfortable, sound system perfect, views amazing and we loved the open floor plan."

*****FREE Amenities - By staying with us you have FREE access to all the Elkhorn Association Amenities but they require formal passes be issued to each guest and must be arranged prior to your arrival. Amenities are subject to closure in off seasons or during inclement weather, and hours of operation are designated by the Association. ******** We also have a wireless Laser Printer for your use that prints, scans, and makes copies. Oh yeah and that's free too, which comes in real handy in the unfortunate event you have to do some work while on vacation. ******** Fees: All our fees are 100% disclosed. Most hotels charge extra fees such as a resort, parking/valet, and/or high speed internet fee. For example: Sun Valley Resort charges a MANDITORY 6% 'Resort Fee'; so on a $5,000 stay that's an additional $336 including tax which may surprise you at check-out time (it's not included on their on-line reservation system quote).*****

Beautiful house- great location!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this house for 3 nights on a business trip. It was clean, comfortable, spacious, easy to access!

The kitchen is very well stocked for cooking and entertaining. It is a quiet location —could walk to sun Valley resort (maybe a mile or two) or drive into Ketchum.

I would be excited to return any time of year to stay at this house!!

Thank you!!

Beautiful Sun Valley home! Great location

  • 5 of 5

The home is beautiful with nice floorplan and very nicely furnished and decorated. The kitchen is extremely well stocked for those who cook. We used the kitchen for almost all of our dinners and every day for breakfast. Very nice appliances. Beautiful outdoor patio great place to grill dinner and eat outside. The Village pool spa and tennis courts are just across the street so you can walk to use them. Very quiet and peaceful neighborhood with easy access to great bike paths too. Beautiful large master suite and bath and very comfortable beds in all bedrooms. In summary a wonderful vacation rental winter or summer.

This was probably the most amazing condo we have ever stayed in. The most equipped kitchen, bathroom amenities I've ever experienced. Furnished beautifully and in excellent taste. Every detail was attended to, including the flameless candles coming on at dusk! What a beautiful home and view. The owners were more than attentive, checking in via text prior to arrival. Highly recommend this home

Clean, coxy, comfortable, contemporary

  • 5 of 5

Great find for us in Sun Valley! We went for Summer Hiking, and enjoyed our stay so much we booked an extra night! Everything is well thought of, first class, clean, high end, and we really felt at home. Never seen such a well stocked kitchen, great for us because we book homes in order to prepare our own meals. As business owners, wifi and other amenities helped us get a "little" work done from here. This community has it all, and at the end of the day, sitting in the lovely back yard enjoying a glass of wine while watching the magpies and other birds frolic in the waterfall and streams made it hard to go! We would highly recommend this place!

Car: recommended

The Elkhorn Lift for Dollar Mountain is right out our back door. The Elkhorn Area of Dollar doesn't have snow making and faces southeast so it is usually only open in January & February.

The Elkhorn Golf Course Clubhouse restaurant (Run by Sun Valley Resort) is open in the Summer and is and excellent lunch spot and has popular dinner specials on Mondays & Fridays. Nice to be able to walk 100 yards for lunch, happy hour, or dinner!
