Central Idaho House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 2.25 Baths, (Sleeps 8-10)

Welcome to our Sun Valley home! The house features a reverse floor plan to maximize high ceilings, exposed beams and beautiful mountain views upstairs in the living room, dining room, and kitchen. The lower level houses three bedrooms, rec room, bonus room, laundry, and heated garage. The house wraps around an outdoor patio which hosts a five man hot tub and a spectacular outdoor fireplace.

Our house is ideally located in a nice neighborhood near the Wood River, and at the base of Baldy between River Run and Warm Springs. The free shuttle service is a 200 yard walk and downtown Ketchum is a half mile away. Nearby there is a public trail leading through an aspen grove to the Wood River. Guy Cole Skateboard Park, paved walking and bike paths, and the Wood River YMCA are all within a 5 minute walk.

The house was designed by local architect Mark Pynn and built by Rick Walsworth, and won the 2012 Idaho AIA award for 'best use of wood'.

About Rob Wright

Rob and Laura enjoying a few moments of freedom from our three children! We reside in Seattle, Washington and look for every opportunity to come to our second home in Ketchum, Idaho.

Rob Wright purchased this house in 2007

Why Rob Wright chose Central Idaho

Sun Valley is like no place in the world. Breathtaking mountains, premier skiing, dry climate (nice escape from Seattle), arts, and wonderful community!

What makes this house unique

Nice quiet area and friendly neighbors. Great location, near town and the YMCA, and the free community bus line. The house is very comfortable with lots of ammenities for kids (bunk room, games, piano keyboard, mini ping pong, etc.).

Great Location

  • 5 of 5

We just spent three weeks at the house in Ketchum. Great house for kids in that close to the YMCA and close to town including the kids BMX track and skate board park. You can't get much closer to the action if you want to be close. The house easily accomodated us and the kids loved the bunk room. Very unique architecture that fits well into the neighborhood, very well thought out with three awesome decks and a patio for outdoor fires.

Thanks for letting us bring our dog in that my girls loved the neighbors and the constant herd of dogs roaming the area. Special thanks to Karin, the neighbor and your house manager who helped us out and gave my girls art lessons.

If we get back to Ketchum we will definitely stay here again.

This is a great place to stay. The property is not too far from town and has access to the river.

The owners, Rob and Lori, obviously have a great deal of pride in their gorgeous home. And it was filled with the amenities you would find if you were using it as their friend. The coffee filters are there as well as extra paper towels, extra clean towels, and laundry detergent as well as fabric softeners. If you forget your margarita salt, they have some for you. There were six adults at our stay and we would've liked more bathrooms (2 1/2 are there) but everyone had enough space and privacy. The 3 fireplaces are great and the hot tub is very clean.

One of the most important aspects, however, was that they allowed us to have our dogs with us. This was the original reason we chose this house and we are so glad we did!

Wonderful vacation home

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed this home. We have two young boys who fell in love with the bunk bed room. In fact, our 4 year old broke down in tears when we had to leave. Wonderful location as well.

Awesome house!

  • 5 of 5

My family of 4 along with my parents stayed at this house during the first week of April. We loved the house. The weather was beautiful while we were there and we enjoyed all the outside seating areas. The hot tub was also nice to relax in after skiing. The location is great. It's in a neighborhood setting and is really close to the mountain as well as downtown Ketchum. There is also a walking/bike path within close proximity to the house that goes for miles. The wifi worked great throughout the home and the tv's, dvd players, etc. were all nice and worked well. The large dining table was great for gathering at meals and also playing games. The bedrooms were all large with lots of storage. The 2 showers had good water pressure and there was enough hot water for us all to take showers one after the other. We appreciate that the owner let us bring our two dogs with us. The owner also had great communication during the rental process and returned my deposit right away after we checked out. We would definitely rent this house again.

Beautiful house, ideal location

  • 5 of 5

A group of us stayed here for a "girls weekend" in April, and we all loved the house! Great layout for entertaining, spacious bedrooms with really comfy beds, and multiple decks/patios to take in the scenery. The house was nicely equipped with everything we needed and the built in stereo was a plus. We were able to walk to the little downtown Ketchum area for restaurants and shopping, which was just what we were looking for. My only suggestion to the owner would be to improve the bathroom lighting in all bathrooms- it looks pretty, but the dim light made it very difficult to "get ready" and actually see how your makeup looked. If you're coming here for a ski weekend, that might not matter as much.

Overall, fantastic home and would definitely stay here again on a return trip to Sun Valley!
