'Our Contented Home'

Congratulations on a very smart choice!

With a perfect location, across a picturesque one way bridge and over the meandering Big Wood River, we are a short 1 minute walk to the beautiful YMCA, bike path, the top-notch Guy Coles skate park, Bigwood Presbyterian Church, and the local bus system, Mountain Rides, which can take you anywhere in the valley, including, of course, near-by River Run or Warm Springs ski lifts!

Full of tall aspen and old evergreen trees, our single home residential neighborhood is as pretty as a postcard, with a lovely walking trail right to Hemingway's beloved Big Wood for fresh water fishing, tubing or just a summer-time cool off!

Downtown Ketchum, with all of its attractions, and fabulous restaurants, is only a half mile away and World Famous Sun Valley is just 1 mile from our home.

As you can see from the photos, you will enjoy a lovely private peaceful home, (as opposed to a 'unit' or condo..no trudging up a flight of stairs!) with a large beautiful living room which includes a 48' flat screen TV complete with both DVR and Blu- ray player!

For you additional convenience we have a wonderful docking station for your I-Pod and wireless internet to keep you connected~

Our dining area boasts a lovely new marble dining table overlooking our picturesque back deck..complete with gas barbeque for cool summer evenings~

You will love our fabulous new kitchen with all the nifty stainless steel appliances~ Additionally, a large laundry room with washer and dryer is right off of the kitchen.

The bedrooms are wonderful! Each one has cozy down comforters with professionally laundered and ironed crisp cotton duvet covers and soft cuddly cotton sheets...guaranteed for a good night's sleep! Master bedroom also has a 28' flatscreen TV with Blu Ray player.

So, come, be our guests and stay at our home. You will save some money to spend on all the outstanding restaurants and the myriad of activities this magical area has to offer... all adding up to a memorable vacation for you!

**Complimentary personal concierge services are also provided, which includes grocery shopping before your arrival!!

My husband and I have lived in Ketchum for 40 Years! We met during a summer vacation and ended up never leaving. There is a saying in this area.. 'You come for the summer, but stay for the winter.'.... That certainly proved to be true for us! We have had a wonderful life here raising our family and a myriad of animals.I had the good fortune to be an elementary school here for 18 years, while my husband built luxury homes all over this valley. So a big wonderful WELCOME to you. Please enjoy this home and have an enchanting stay in this magical place!

LOCATION! LOCATION! LOCATION!

Close to everything both in Ketchum and Sun Valley,yet tucked away in a charming neighborhood.

Walk across the street and fish in the Big Wood River, stroll over to the YMCA and take a swim, or go skateboarding in our state of the art skate park. Both Warm Springs and River Run ski lifts are a 3-4 minute car ride away..or take a 2 minute walk to the free Bus system and let them do the driving! It simply does not get any better than this!

Living in a beautiful residential neighborhood, close to the town center can't be beat! Hearing the Big Wood River as you fall asleep on cool summer nights is akin to heaven on earth!

Our Contented home is just that...whether barbequeing on the lovely deck, or sipping cocoa and watching a movie on a cold winter's night, you will always feel comfortable and content in 'your home away from home!'

Wonderful rental experience

  • 5 of 5
This entire experience was fabulous. The house is very accurately depicted in description and photos - very quiet neighborhood, exceptionally clean and well-maintained home. We felt right at home as soon as we walked in. Even more impressive was the communication with the owners and concierge throughout the rental experience. E-mail responses to our questions were quick, and owners sincerely wanted us to enjoy the vacation. Concierge service is a very nice bonus -we shipped our skis out ahead of us and they were waiting in the house upon our arrival, and it was a very nice connection for local information.

Our stay in Ketchum couldn't have been any better! Prior to our arrival we spoke with the concierge service several times regarding supplies in the house etc. and thought it was a nice feature if you need groceries or anything else. The kitchen was fully equipped and really well organized. The living area, bedrooms and bathrooms were really clean. Lots of towels, sheets, and blankets. It was great being able to do laundry after a couple days of skiing. You are close to town about 10min walk and really close to a bus stop right across from the YMCA. Overall we had a great time and will definitely will be coming back in the near future. Thanks for making our holidays great!

What can I say about staying at Our Contented Home? It was wonderful in every way! The owners had goodies waiting for us upon our arrival and lots of helpful information about the town of Ketchum and Sun Valley. We had ordered some groceries from the concierge service to be brought in before our arrival which was a tremendous plus. The large living room was beautifully decorated with lovely leather couches, beautiful pillows, and a 48” screen high definition TV. It was particularly handy to have blu ray players rather than just plain dvd players, as we brought lots of blu-ray movies along with us.
The kitchen was well equipped with good cookware and pretty dishes. The marble dining table was right off the kitchen with a good outside view.
Each bedroom was so cozy! The bed were extremely comfortable and inviting with high end cotton sheeting and cozy down comforters.
Because this is an older home, it has only one bath/shower, but that didn’t bother our little foursome in the least. Both the bathroom and powder room had new vanities and were just as clean and pristine looking as could be!
The home is truly a little gem and we highly recommend it. If we can help it, we will never stay anywhere else!

Just wanted to let you know that we have since installed a brand new shower for the 2nd bathroom for the convenience of everyone. You will love it!
We look forward to seeing you again in 2014!

Staying in this cozy home was one of the high lights of our short vacation .Everything was absolutely perfect! The home had lovely furnishings, a fully equipped kitchen with new stainless steel appliances, big screen TV in living room complete with DVR and Blu ray player and the list goes on and on.
It was impeccably clean and well maintained, with a great location and a fair price..lower than most listed on VRBO.
Arriving late in the evening, it was especially nice to have a few groceries waiting for us in the kitchen as part of the complimentary concierge service. And did I mention the welcome information and treats when we arrived? The owners really go out of their way to make it an effortless stay.
We will definitely be staying here again!
Thank you, Marcie and Bill!!
