Welcome to West Ketchum.

Our French chateau inspired cottage is close to everything and far from nothing.

Imagine being walking distance to downtown Ketchum yet peacefully removed from the bustle and noise of Main street...all in the same spot. 

Step inside our Sun Valley cottage to find sandstone floors, fine hardwood details and hand plastered walls throughout the custom handmade 2 structure property. 

The large backyard and garden are an oasis of foliage in the Summer and a stunning backdrop of snow covered aspen trees come Winter time. Bald mountain hovers directly behind the property. 

Every corner will surprise you with quality, detail, fit and finish. 

The large living room has two couches and contains an HDTV gathering area, wood fireplace and wet bar that allows everyone to spend time together and relax.

The Bose sound system pumps out rich musical backdrops while the dramatic above cabinetry lighting sets the mood for a sensational evening. 

Everyone stays in the mix with kitchen, dining and living room all connected and opening directly onto the expansive back patio and side BBQ and hot tub area. 

Whether enjoying the aroma of wild thyme over a glass of wine on the slate patio or a cool cocktail in the hot tub with snow falling, the seasons will delight you at our one of a kind home. 

Nothing else in Sun Valley is like it!

Originally purchased in 1997, our family continues to enjoy visiting the Wood River Valley for holidays, get together, skiing, snowmobiling, hiking and more. We're very excited to be able to share our wonderfully unique home with visitors!

Richard Lomas purchased this cottage in 1997

Our family has been visiting Sun Valley since the 1960's as there's just nothing else like it. The combination of small town charm along with world class amenities and superb skiing make Ketchum & Sun Valley unbeatable!

In terms of our property in particular...Simply put, there's nothing else like our house in the Ketchum area. It's a made by hand French styled chateau/cottage with tremendous craftsmanship throughout. Beautiful natural woods & stones adorn the inside and out.

Being so close to town as well as having 2 structures on the property allows all visitors to enjoy time together as well as maintaining multiple daily itineraries. People can walk to and from town and the adjacent outdoor activities all throughout the day as they see fit.

Additionally, our home in particular is unique with its French inspiration and superb level of hand craftsmanship.

West Ketchum truly is the best of both worlds. We have full outdoor enjoyment areas yet are walking distance to Main Street. It's a real treat!

More Than Prayed For!

  • 5 of 5
Always nervous going to a place you've never seen. Sometimes photos can trick you. NOT HERE. This property is AWESOME. Everything - decor, view, electronics, location, you name it. The kitchen was stocked with top end appliances and equipment. We kept a wonderful fire going 15 hours a day for the whole week. This is a one of a kind property. We had four couples, a baby, and a grandmother and we loved everything about this once in a lifetime vacation/mini-family reunion. No houses behind to look at.

We enjoyed our visit immensely and are well rested after spending 2 glorious weeks at this lovely little house in Sun Valley. It was a pleasure dealing with the owner.The only areas that need improvement are TV's in the bedrooms, shades covering the bedroom windows, no ice maker or freezer in the main part of the house and limited counter space in the washrooms. Other than that, the house met or exceeded all our expectations.

Wonderful Weekend

  • 5 of 5
We all fell in love with your house. When you first open the front door the house welcomed us. It was much more than we thought it would be and equipped with everything. The house was warm, comfortable and wonderfully furnished. We had a great time, couldnt have asked for better, and we will be very happy to rent this house again. It is definitely great for any kind of getaway, and we loved it.

Great house for the MLK long weekend!

  • 5 of 5
We are a group of college friends who have been skiing together once a year for the last 15 years. We travel out of California every other year, and this year we chose Sun Valley. The 5 of us stayed 4 nights at this great house. We ate our breakfasts in and there was plenty of room at the table and lots of plates and pots and pans for cooking. The TV area is a bit tight for 5 guys who don't like to sit too close together. The sleeping areas, hot tub and room above the garage all worked our perfectly. I think it's best to have a car at this location, although it is possible to stumble home from Grumpy's if needed.

Thanks for having such a nice home and we look forward to staying with you again on our next visit to Sun Valley.

Cozy chalet perfect for couples ski trip

  • 5 of 5
We had another great ski trip to Sun Valley and stayed at the Sun Valley Cottage. The quality and ambiance of this French-style chalet always adds significantly to our overall vacation experience. The house truly feels like a "home" with soft, elegant lighting, completely custom millwork and well-equipped kitchen with a BBQ on deck that we regularly put to use.

Most nights we found ourselves preferring to cook and eat in rather than head to town for dinner. However, since we had several groups, the proximity to town was perfect so that everyone could come and go on their own schedule. It's a short walk for morning coffee and breakfast at Java's, and not much further to Main St. for dinner and an evening out which is an aspect we really like about the cottage compared to other places we've stayed further out of town.

Finishing a long day on the ski hill in the hot tub surrounded by snow is hard to beat. Beds, linens, sheets and towels are all topnotch -- and the benefit of having the self-contained separate apartment with range, oven, fridge and microwave makes this place unique and ideal for couples or a muti-family trip.

We're already planning to return to the cottage next year for our annual ski trip!

Just 1/4 mile behind the house is wonderful fly fishing in the Big Wood River. A trail head that's 100 yards from our driveway leads right to the river.

Additionally, there is a magnificent public tennis court (2 courts) just a few hundred yards from the house.
