About Pam McMahon

My husband and I reside in California. We are retired now. My husband was a civil trial attorney and I was a school psychologist. We have two children, a son, who is a public defender, and a daughter, a special education teacher. While growing up they were pair figure skaters, and we would come to Sun Valley each summer for lessons and competitions. They both live in Silicon Valley as well and have 5 children between them.

My husband passed away after a very long illness in January of 2016. I continue to visit the Sun Valley area at least two times each and am able to rekindle my very fond memories of wonderful times we shared here.

Pam McMahon purchased this house in 2003

Why Pam McMahon chose Hailey

We had been coming to the Sun Valley area since 1989 and fell in love with it. When we found our house in Hailey we knew that we had found the ultimate vacation home with all the serenity and peace one could ever want. The surroundings are breathtaking and the slow pace of life in Hailey truly allows one relax and enjoy the simple things of life.

What makes this house unique

Our house is secluded from our neighbors and the downtown. It is truly a 'get-a-way' where one can relax from the pressures of the outside world and yet it is close enough to Sun Valley to enjoy all the amenities of a resort both in summer and in winter.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We just wanted to thank you so much for opening your home for others to enjoy. We had a wonderful time. The weather was beautiful and while sitting on the porch swing, a mother moose and then her baby came by to eat leaves off the tree not 10 feet away from us. It was fantastic. Your home is beautiful and well stocked for all our needs and beyond. Thanks again for making our vacation a vacation to remember for years to come.

Wonderful location

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed in many places around the country but this home tops them all. Our grandchildren loved the swimming hole in the Big Wood River and the wonderful trail that runs behind the home. It was so peaceful. Standing on the back patio at night and looking at the stars was incredible. We had my daughter, son, daughter-in-law, and 7 and 9 y.o. grandchildren along with my husband and I. What a wonderful week we had. Having been to Hailey before it was so fun to go to the Wicked Spud on Wednesday nite and enjoy the live music. Very family friendly.

A beatiful Hailey home base

  • 5 of 5

This home was perfect for our family gathering of 5 adults and 3 children. Beautifully decorated, spacious and fully equipped – there was room for all to do their own thing. The location in a lovely wooded section of Hailey, with easy access to trails for walking and biking, was also perfect. The owner was extremely accessible and accommodating, and in fact went over-and-above to fill our wants and needs. Could not recommend this property more!

Robinhood Drive, Hailey, ID

  • 5 of 5

This beautiful home was perfect for our family to stay for 10 days while we attended our daughter's wedding & enjoyed the Sun Valley area. It is spacious, immaculate, has a well stocked kitchen and a professional size gas stove with 2 ovens! The easy access to the Big Wood River trail is an added bonus.

Owner is very easy to communicate with.
