Mountain Home is the largest town in rural Elmore County, a friendly community located in the vast, rugged, and beautiful high desert of southern Idaho.
Located about 40 miles southeast of Boise, Mountain home sits between the Danskin and Owyhee Mountains, surrounded by desert, canyon lands, and wilderness. It’s the gateway to an endless playground for outdoor enthusiasts. The South Fork of the Boise River is just minutes away—a blue-ribbon trout fishery world-renowned for some of the best rainbow trout fishing in the west. And you can explore the tallest single-structured sand dune in North America just 20 miles out of town at Bruneau Dunes State Park. Whatever your adventure, Mountain Home is an ideal location to play.
Also in close proximity is Mountain Home Air Force Base, which brings people from all over the world to this small town. The area’s economy is largely supported by agriculture, with dairy farms and fields of potatoes, sugar beets, barley, wheat, hay, and corn.
St. Luke’s Elmore (formerly Elmore Medical Center) has a long tradition of providing expert care to the people of Elmore and northern Owyhee counties. This 25-bed critical access hospital features 24-hour emergency services, lab and imaging services, family birthing suites, and a long-term care unit. It also includes Trinity Medical Clinic, which specializes in family medicine and OB/GYN care.
