As a resident of the Ketchum/Sun Valley area for over 30 years, I've learned all the wonderful things that make this a great place to live and visit. This is my hometown and I want you to enjoy it. During your stay, you'll see I've left details on some of my favorite things....so you can feel like a local too!
Some of my favorites include: Friday is locals night at the Pioneer, the ice show is free on Christmas Eve, the world-famous Sun Valley Symphony performs free through much of August, the library hosts free lectures and performances year-round, free jazz is played in the park each July, and much more!
I've lived in many beautiful areas including California, Hawaii, Colorado, and Rome - and the Ketchum Sun Valley area is, by far, my favorite. I invite you to come visit.
The Owner purchased this house in 1994
I found this plot of land in 1993 and then designed and built an intimate home where family and friends could gather in comfort and enjoy the mountain scenery and activities.
Halfway (1 mile) between the Warm Springs Lodge and Downtown Ketchum, this friendly neighborhood offers accessibility to restaurants, bars, and theatre as well as cross-country and downhill skiing, hiking, biking, a dog park, and many other outdoor pursuits.
This isn't a cookie-cutter condo or in a 'gated' community! This is my custom built home that I want you to enjoy.
My wife and I stayed at Linda's house for a week over Christmas and we could not have been happier with our stay. First, the pictures do not do this listing justice as it is two stories and had plenty of room for ourselves, our Bernese Mountain Dog (Scout), and our 7 month old son with room to spare. As a skier, this place was the best of both as the Warm Springs Lifts are a 5 minute drive and there a free skier bus accessible at the top of the road. As a dog owner, the dog park (more like a field) is a two minute walk down the road and was a highlight of our mornings. Linda's place is a short hop/walk into Ketchum for those who want to eat out or look around the square. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and Linda's hospitality and are planning our next trip back soon!
I rented this house for three months over the winter(Feb-Apr 2012) and again for the month of July '12. The house is nicely laid out with the living spaces upstairs and the bedrooms down. The radiant heated floors and the perfectly positioned windows all but guarantee sun and warmth every day. In the heat of the summer it is nice that the bedrooms stay much cooler on the lower level. There is a great deck upstairs to enjoy and the bedrooms downstairs both open to the backyard...a nice amenity for dog owners. The neighborhood is very friendly, especially to dog owners...you can walk just down the street to a huge dog park. Overall a very comfortable home to stay in for short or longer stays.
The perfect setup for a vacation in Sun Valley. The house is beautiful with everything you need. If you are bringing your dog then the walking distance dog park is a must. Ideally located to enjoy the mountain life in the area. The landlord is a professional in every sense of the word since she owns and put her heart and soul into this rental property. As a renter, I would recommend this place to anyone. We had the best time. If you have questions, she will be right there to answer. If I had to pick the one thing I liked most about the rental it would be how friendly the owner was and the price was affordable. As she is in the business for many years, the rental lacks nothing and she thought of everything and continues to strif to make improvements .
To be upfront: the owner is my Godmother. That said, I'd like to reiterate some of the high-points of her posting. She architected and built this house for herself so there are many touches you won't find in a condo or builder-built home. The familyroom has high ceilings and feels very spacious. The bedrooms are downstairs so if some members of the group retire earlier than others, it is very quiet. The house has heated floors, which is especially nice in the bathrooms. A nice location in both summer and winter, the house is halfway between downtown and the Warm Springs lodge. I've stayed in both summer and winter and find it close to whatever I need. The house is clean and well maintained, with my Godmothers paintings adorning the walls. She is a very considerate, friendly, and quiet person and will ensure your stay is perfect. Of course I am biased, but I urge you to contact her for a rental or for more information. You'll enjoy your stay.
