The photos do it an injustice,(my apologies to the photographer)

Stayed: July 2011
Our family had been to the Sun Valley area a number of times in the past twenty years, as we had some great friends in Gimlet. I remember skiing down to the Warm Springs Lodge, and thinking how amazing it was. So now I find myself staying a pebbles throw away, at this wonderful home. Mind you, it was in July, and the flora was in full force-yet the amazing snowpack this year was still evident-the best of both worlds,(seasonally speaking). The housekeeping had obviously been well taken care of, and we were of little concern of anything-other than to enjoy ourselves, as everything we needed was provided- and then some,(my wife loved the bed, oh well, I guess that is what vacations are about). Our experiences were many, as we rafted the Salmon, hiked, biked, took free fly fishing lessons together, ate like idiots, (there are no bad places to eat...only favorites). So, as I wouldn't recommend "A PLACE" to eat, or hike to, or drive to,(and hike and eat), I would recommend the local events and community sites....e.g., the garden project, the jazz in the park, the local bars and the Sun Valley complex at
Baldy Mtn. (see a movie). Well, that's all I can say, because it won't be a better time for you, than it was for us.(Unless you catch more than two nice trout off the deck, see two river otters goofin' off across the bank, or, actually get in the river about a half mile away in the natural hot springs!) Sorry if this seems a bit sappy- but if you've been to Sun Valley, you know that there is no bad place to stay...only those you'd want to....this was such a place.
