This wonderful 4 bedroom/3 bathroom house is the perfect place to relax in and from which to base all of your Sun Valley adventures. The incredible views and central location cannot be overstated!
Warm up next to the rock fireplace and look out of the floor to ceiling windows surrounding it to watch skiers on Bald and Dollar Mountains. The kitchen and laundry areas have brand new appliances and were recently renovated. The kitchen and main area floors are in the winter! The kitchen is complete and equipped with cookware, dishware, utensils and basic supplies. Linens are provided (bedding and towels). There is a clothes washer and dryer at the home..
The first master bedroom has a king bed and a new shower in the bathroom. A second room contains two twin beds and a third has one twin and one queen bed. With a separate entrance downstairs, there is a one bedroom apartment with a queen bed, a bathroom with a shower and kitchenette.
An additional common bathroom contains a tub/shower combination.
The private hot tub sits just steps outside the back door and looks upon Bald Mountain and up to the amazing central Idaho skies. High-speed wireless internet access is available at the house - just bring your laptop. Sun Valley Lodge amenity access is included with house rental (this includes the use of their incredible pools, fitness center, and locker rooms) so you get the best of both worlds - the luxury of the Lodge and the comfort and privacy of a private home.
PLEASE NOTE MAXIMUM OCCUPANCY: There is 'bed space' for nine people and an enforced maximum occupancy of ten guests in the home. Thank you for your understanding.
Concierge services are now available with prior notice - just let us know what your needs are prior to your arrival (72 hours minimum preferred). We can arrange for food delivery, mid-stay cleaning, babysitting services, airport pickup, or just about anything else you might need.

Our home is a wonderful legacy passed down by our parents/grandparents and is a place of peace and relaxation for our family.
We are thankful for the opportunity to explore and experience the adventure, style and peacefulness that is 'Sun Valley.' You could not ask for a better location with perfect views of Bald Mountain and the ability to walk to the Lodge and all of the resort's amenities. Privacy and convenience combined.
Staying at our home makes sense. It is just a short walk to the Sun Valley Lodge, it borders the wildflower covered (or sledding-ready) Penny Hill and has clear views of Bald and Dollar Mountains. The free shuttle passes the house, cross-country and snowshoe trails begin across the road, a paved bike path leads from the house into Ketchum and beyond, and the stars shine clearly above the private hot tub.
We love to hop the fence and sled on Penny Hill in the winter and climb it to look over Ketchum in the summer. House rental includes Recreation Passes to the lodge which entitle guests to use the various incredible pools at the lodge, along with the locker rooms and fitness center. It also provides discounts on golf greens fees with priority tee times and discounted tennis court rentals.
Clearly a family gem, we felt welcome in your heirloom home and felt like part of your family for a short time! Sparkling clean and stocked full of crisp white towels, kitchenware, spices and wood- anything we needed. We used absolutely every amenity- fireplace, wi-fi, home theatre, bbq, hot tub, on and on. We loved the proximity and perks of the hotel and trail. Plus, we had guests come and go at odd times, so the apartment worked great for them. But, the best part was the living area views- it made the trip! Thanks so much for such a fun time!
We rented Scott and Emmi's house for 6 nights in early August as our home base for our son's wedding in Sun Valley. The house was clean, spacious and accommodated our family of six perfectly. The house was accurately described in the Home Away property information. We barbecued delicious trout from Atkinson's Market and ate on the patio one night. We also enjoyed the long dining room table for breakfast every morning with its spectacular view towards the mountains. This view was actually used as the background for some photos of my son and his best man after they had gotten dressed for the wedding ceremony.
We could easily walk into town or walk to the Sun Valley Lodge to take advantage of the Inn's fitness center and two of the pools. We had a lovely lunch by the smaller round pool at the Lodge. We were quite happy with being able to use the Lodge's amenities and actually had the front desk print out some documents for us. In Ketchum, we enjoyed great salads and sandwiches at Bigwood Bread and Mexican food at Desperados for lunches. Town Square Tavern was the highlight of our dinners. We also spent some time at Warfields Distillery.
Scott was attentive to our needs. We were very happy with the rental and the level of service that we received.
We stayed here for a week. Overall it was a nice place. It was clean when we checked in. Great location and loved being able to use the amenities at Sun Valley Lodge. There were some problems however. 1st thing, there is no air conditioning and no windows open, not even screen doors in the main living area so it was really hard to get some air in the house. The ceiling fans helped a little but we were hot during the day and at night sleeping. 2nd thing, all of the appliances need to be serviced or replaced. The freezer doesn't work properly and we couldn't get anything to freeze or get very cold, our ice cream was very soft and runny. We changed the settings and nothing worked. 3rd thing is the dishwasher didn't work well, and 4th thing is the washer and dryer didn't work well. It would work for a while then stop working, it was frustrating. 5th thing is the lighting throughout the house is very poor, it is dark. It worked for our family and we had a great week but there are definitely some items needing work.
The house is great. Love the kitchen and living areas. We were super happy with the location and property! Love that you can use the Sun Valley amenities. What a bonus! Costumer service was great. Thanks again!
What a lovely time we had. The view of Bald Mountain was spectacular. It's guiet and secluded yet close to all the amenities and in walking distance to most. We didn't want our trip to end! Thanks, Scott and Emmi for sharing your beautiful home with us!

My family rented Scott and Emmi's house to celebrate a couple birthdays and to ski. The house was perfect in every way. The house is well stocked for home cooking. We even grilled outside! The living features also accommodated everyone comfortably. Finally, we all agreed the location to town, lodge and skiing resorts were the best. We enjoyed walking almost every where we wanted to go:) We would love to return to Sun Valley in the future(maybe during the spring) and we all agreed we would stay here again.
