My whole extended family made the move to the Wood River Valley in 1997 to escape the crowds, congestion and security issues of the LA Basin. Clean air, friendly people, magnificent views, yet culturally astute. Fell in love with the valley on our first visit. Bought a home and started an extensive renovation project to make it our own. I am a registered nurse, and my husband is a professional photographer. He is in seventh heaven with all the photo-ops of the area.

Comfortable seasonal mountain climate, with dry moderate temperatures. Beautiful Mountain and valley vistas all around, with an abundant outdoor activities year around. This truly has the feel of a small community, with friendly people, but with a big city's cultural activities. Great, upscale restaurant, live theatre, classical and top name pop music venues.
Quiet and private and safe location on a private, cul-de-sac drive. Great mountain views. Serene quiet landscaped 1+acre lawn and gardens. 3 patios for relaxing or entertaining. BBQ or soak in the Hot-tub. Make 'some-moors' at the outdoor fire-ring.
Thank you for making your home available to us. It is beautyful + comfortable and we have reaqlly, rreally enjoyed staying there. We will be back.
Tom - Great kitchen, hope that we put things back where you can find them. Ha-Ha
Your fireplace is amazing- the most heat producing, that we haqve eveer been around! Great place to watch the Super Bowl!
ps: The car was perfect! Wish we had one. Sorry it got so dirty!
This pet-friendly spacious home nestled in the snowy woods complete with hot tub and gourmet kitchen helped make our Winter vacation a joyous occasion. The large fenced-in yard allowed our family pets to enjoy the outdoors without worry. There was ample parking space for the whole family with 3 double garages. Only a short drive to Sun Valley ski resort and downtown Sun City. We want to thank Janet and Tom for allowing us the use of their home.
Thanks so much,
The Lang Family
We rent houses via VRBO 3-5 times a year and I used to own a vacation house myself, so the 5-star rating (my first) does not come easily!
The square footage does not begin to describe how huge this house is! It took us 2 days to just stop getting lost in here! This house is not one of those 'investment properties' bought to make money - the owners actually live here and I got the feeling that they do this more for fun than anything else. When they get renters, it gives them the excuse to put their giant motor home to good use. Staying here feels like house-sitting for your rich aunt.
The house has 3 full-on master bedrooms with their own baths, so the house would work perfectly for 3 couples without anyone sleeping in a bunk bed. The 4th bedroom is an upstairs loft and would be perfect for teenage kids.
The 'Big master' is a bit crazy! Two huge mattresses put edge to edge to make one giant custom bed big enough for six. The hot tub is right outside on its own private deck with a pile of wood and a custom-built fire pit. If that wasn't enough, the big master has its own wood fireplace and a granite two-person shower and jetted tub. The possibilities here are endless ;-)
Despite the few steps at the front door, the house is really flat, so it was really good for our toddling 8-month-old. Whether on purpose or not, the house is actually very toddler-friendly. Soft carpets cover almost of the floor - the furniture is plush without sharp corners and there was not a bunch of stuff within her reach to drag down.
The hot tub is awesome - a newer design and very comfortable and very private! BBQ was clean and functional. The Hibachi Grill was so awesome that after playing with this one, I will be getting one at home! I made the best Carne Asada of my life here!
There is a dedicated dog run with a small doggy-door. The large garage is also open for tenant use, which is unusual and very nice to have in the winter.
In the end, this property and its owners are the epitome of what VRBO is supposed to be all about. Please be nice to them and their property as we plan to return here in the future.
Ohh yes, and almost I forgot - you can hit the paved bike trail with a stone from the back porch! We did over 60 miles of biking on our stay. DT Ketchum with all of its restaurants is within perfect morning biking range. With our road bikes, ~15-20min with a baby trailer in tow.
This is a beautiful home with spacious outside decks. It was a perfect place for the out of town Bride's family and friends to gather and stay. Great location between Hailey and Ketchum with nearby bike path. All the amenities one could want or need to be entertained.
Owners were wonderful to deal with and were sensitive to all our needs :-)
Janet was amazing to deal with..Thanks Janet!! This home is everything you could want. The outdoor setting in like a storybook. The kitchen is well stocked. The fireplaces were so cozy and tons of firewood was provided. I cannot say enough good...our Thanksgiving was magical.
We had a fantastic time in Ketchum and at this home. The owners are wonderful hosts and we felt right at home. The accommodations were amazing...the home had everything you would want or need. Great location to Sun Valley and Mt. Baldy! We enjoyed the bike path and the beautiful yard. We would highly recommend this property for your summer vacation to to Idaho. Thanks again for sharing your amazing home.
We had two families stay at this property in July. The home is perfect for this arrangement. The setting in Gimlet is beautiful with wonderful outside dining options. Tom and Janet are great hosts whether it's filling a flat car tire with air or leaving a nice birthday gift for one of the wives who celebrated a birthday during our stay. On any evening you could spend time in the hot tub or make smores over the fire pit. It is a wonderful spot and we are looking forward to a return visit next summer.
