About the property

4 King Bedroom Suites, 4 Full Private Bathrooms, 1 Guest Powder Room, Sleeps 10

Walk to the new gondola at the base of River Run from this superb 3 story luxury vacation home. With over 4,500 square feet to enjoy with your friends and family, there is plenty of room to entertain and relax in our spacious living area. This winter retreat includes 4 comfortable guest suites with their own private bathrooms. This elegant home has all the luxurious amenities you will want...and then some.

The great room has 28 foot ceilings, floor to ceiling windows, a roaring gas fireplace and lots of room to relax after a long day of skiing or snowshoeing. Entertain family and friends in the sunny kitchen with gourmet appliances or host a formal dinner party in the dining room that seats 10. If you just want to relax, sit back and enjoy a glass of wine on one of the 2 outdoor patios nestled among the view of the mountains.

Summer in Sun Valley: The summertime in Sun Valley is one of the most idyllic places to spend the long days of summer. A short walk from the house leads to a lovely trail for access to the Big Wood River for world class fly fishing or for hiking through the fields of wildflowers on Bald Mountain. You are also steps away from mountain biking trails, running trails or taking a long stroll along the tranquil Wood River. Guests are invited to enjoy fly fishing in beautiful Silver Creek, horseback riding in the mountains, or riding the white water rapids of the Salmon River. Sun Valley also offers several world class public and private golf courses which are located within 10-20 minutes of our home including the Bigwood Golf Course, Sun Valley Golf Course and Elkhorn Golf Club. Families will also enjoy ice skating at the world-famous outdoor ice skating rink in Sun Valley and having a picnic at the free Sun Valley Summer Symphony.

Sun Valley Vacation Rental Home: Enjoy the stunning serenity of this gorgeous luxury mountain side vacation home, nestled beside Bald Mountain in Ketchum, Idaho. The home is designed to provide pure relaxation and comfort in every room and sleeps 10 comfortably with 4 bedroom suites. The owners coordinated each design element to compliment the concept of a retreat into the timeless qualities in the home and surrounding environment. The expansive view from the windows and the warmth of its completely new décor combine to create the perfect ambiance for a relaxing and memorable vacation with a large family or a group of friends. You can rent this lovely home with your entire family, or with other couples, and enjoy wonderful shared times and fabulous group living in the spacious great room, with a wood-burning fireplace and gourmet kitchen.

Winter in Sun Valley: This Luxury Sun Valley Vacation Rental Home is located at the foot of Bald Mountain about a 5 minute walk to the gondola and River Run Ski Lodge in Ketchum, Idaho. Sun Valley is famous for skiing, and our home makes for a perfect holiday vacation rental. This mountain side retreat is located in one of the most desirable and sought after areas of the Sun Valley vacation home properties. Although Sun Valley is famous for its expert mountain for downhill skiing, this home is also close to the miles of cross-country ski trails. If sitting next to a roaring wood burning fireplace and curling up on the sofa with a good book and a cup of coffee is more your style…we’ve got you covered. For non-skiers, you might enjoy sleigh ride dinners, wandering though the renowned artists’ galleries in downtown Ketchum, ice-skating at the famous Sun Valley Lodge, shopping or taking in the most beautiful sunsets over the snow-covered mountains.

Fantastic Home in Sun Valley Near Bald Mountain

  • 5 of 5

Our family (6 people) had a wonderful time staying in this home in Sun Valley, Idaho. The property owner and manager could not have been nicer and more responsive (e.g., helping us rent a baby crib, etc.). In addition to being a beautifully maintained home, we have never stayed in a better equipped rental home. The kitchen had every utensil, plenty of towels in every bathroom, coupled with good internet and television throughout the house. Every bedroom had a king bed and its own attached bathroom, which was great for our family.

It is an easy 500 yard walk to the gondola at River Run at Bald Mountain (along a wide , flat, groomed snow path for pedestrians and cross country skiers), and ¼ mile from downtown Ketchum (shorter walk in the summer through a park covered in snow during the winter).

The attached garage and solid construction (the home is on a quiet street, and is very quiet inside) are a plus. When we return to Sun Valley we would definitely rent this home again.

Fantastic home for two family getaway

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from a long Presidents Day weekend with two families and our nanny in this amazing home. There is plenty of room for everyone to have space and privacy and the common areas are fantastic for the group to gather. Our kids especially enjoyed many fun games of hide & seek on all three floors. The kitchen amenities we excellent, everything we needed and more.

Elisa was very easy to work with and the house was just as described in the listing.

We would highly recommend this home to others and will rent it again when we return to SV!

Highly recommend these SV restaurants: Roundhouse for dinner (take the Gondola at River Run up the mountain - pretty special), Il Naso for Italian, Globus for Asian/Thai, The Ketchum Grill - the shortribs were amazing, Christine's for lunch, The Kneadery for Breakfast, and of course, you can't miss Grumpy's for a great burger and a beer (it's kid friendly too).

Great Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

Sun Valley is our favorite spot for the 4th of July. We had extended family for this vacation and needed a larger home. It's hard to find 4 rooms with King beds, and this home was perfect for us! Lots of privacy when you wanted it, and a large great room for watching TV, meals, etc. The kitchen was very well stocked and had everything we needed.

Town is a short walk or bike ride to restaurants and shops. The bike path is even closer for easy access to River Run and hiking trails. Again, perfect!

Would highly recommend it.

Beautiful Home only 10 min. walk to River Run Lift

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful large 4 bedroom/ 4.5 bath home only 3 blocks from the River Run Lift. One of the best properties in Sun Valley. We enjoyed ourselves immensely. The owners Don and Elisa are the best.

Fantastic Location and Facilities

  • 5 of 5

The home is peaceful, relaxing and beautiful. It is located close to everything, including the slopes and the town. The Kitchen is stocked with everything you need to make meals, including a double oven and grill. The rooms are situated nicely giving you privacy when you need it and large common areas to gather. Each bedroom has it's own complete bathroom. I highly recommend this property.

Amazing Home!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I just returned from a week's stay at this amazing home. Everything was perfect and exactly as advertised in

From the moment we stepped through the door we felt welcomed by the comfortable, spotless, and well-appointed home. Activities, including the Ketchum bike path, were right outside the door. We can't wait to return!
