Ketchum House Rental Photos and Description
House, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4)
Plan the ultimate ski getaway at this cute two bedroom vacation condo in Ketchum that is within walking distance to the lifts at Warm Springs! In summer, hike or bike up the mountain for amazing outdoor views. Perfect for a family or friends traveling together, create one-of-a-kind memories year-round at this inviting space.
Small decorative details throughout the condo include picket fence style stair railings, shelves filled with books, rustic wood paneling, outdoor themed art on the walls, and a comfortable, country decor. You'll feel right at home here! This nicely laid out condo also features a beautiful gas brick fireplace in the living room. In the evenings, borrow a book from the shelf and curl up on the couch for some quiet, relaxing reading time. If it's a chilly night, a roaring fire will definitely add to the cozy ambiance! A large flat screen TV with cable and BluRay is also located in the living room for even more entertainment options.
A nearby dining room table has six seats for meals or card games. The galley kitchen has all the appliances needed for creating meals for hungry skiers or hikers after a long adventure-filled day. Whip up some banana pancakes on a chilly morning or vegetable-packed gazpacho on a clear summer evening. Board games are available for guests, so after cleaning up, finish the wine and gather back around the dining room table for some fun.
Upstairs is a master bedroom with a queen bed, tall, slanted ceilings, TV, and an attached bath. Large windows let in lots of light, for a bright, relaxing interior. The second bedroom also has a queen bed, as well as its oversized picture windows. The second full bathroom is located just down the hall. This condo will comfortably sleep four guests - as well as one well-behaved dog for a $10 per day fee ($40 minimum per stay).
The condo grounds are meticulously landscaped and cared for, with lush green grass in the summer and snow-covered trees in the winter. Three outdoor hot tubs are available, as well as a large outdoor pool, which is heated on chillier days. The athletically-inclined can practice their games on two tennis courts or two pickle ball courts, and kids will love playing on the jungle gym. A beautiful shared outdoor area has a large fireplace and charcoal grill for guest use, so be sure to pick up some steaks and beer while you're out and about. Other condo amenities include a coin-operated laundry room, a ski/storage locker right outside your front door, and a very helpful onsite condo complex manager if you have any questions during your stay.
But, let's talk about the skiing! From this unit, the lifts at Warm Springs are just a short stroll away. Spend the day skiing or snowboarding on the slopes, then stop by Warm Springs Day Lodge at the base of Bald Mountain for an après ski snack. Other dining options include Apple's Bar and grill for a great burgers and beer or Irving's Red Hots for Chicago-style hot dogs in the middle of Sun Valley (please note that seasonal hours/openings may vary!).
Of course, winter is not the only time you'll want to visit. In summer, the area is a playground of outdoor activities with everything from hiking and biking up and around the mountain, to baitcasting, spinning, or fly fishing fishing in Warm Springs Creek. A system of paved multi-use trails called the Wood River Trails connects many of the communities around Ketchum and is great for biking, jogging, skating -- in the winter its even used for cross country skiing and snowshoeing!
Downtown Ketchum is just over two miles away from the condo, with galleries, shops, the Blaine County Historical Museum, and golfing at White Clouds or Trail Creek courses. Restaurant choices include everything from Asian-fusion plates at Dashi to prime rib and baked potatoes at the Pioneer Saloon. Definitely a year-round destination, this condo offers a comfortable environment, paired with the perfect location for your next Sun Valley sun or snow-filled excursion.
