We chose to buy this second home because of the privacy, beautiful surroundings and convenience to town, trails and recreation areas. There are so many activities available summer or winter right outside your front door or within just a few minutes drive or bike ride.
The property is surrounded by the Democrat Ranch and BLM land. Hiking, mountain biking, snow shoeing, quad and motorcycle riding right out your front door. The Wood River Valley also have some of the best fly fishing, snow skiing, and boating in the country just minutes away. There are miles of paved bike paths along the Wood River right into Sun Valley. Not to mention the weather. It's called Sun Valley for a reason!
Our family of seven had a great time at the house. The three couples had their own bedroom and grandpa had his own room. We enjoyed the spacious bedrooms, and large living room and kitchen just as described in the listing. Also enjoyed the heated floors in the living room and kitchen. The dining table was large enough to seat all 7 of us. We did not have any trouble find the property. The property is in a nice location west of Hailey and since all properties in the subdivision sit on 5 acres you don't have any close neighbors. The local ski area, Rotarun is within 1/2 mile. The property was clean and well maintained. The photos accurately portrayed what the property offered. two pair of snow shoes and one pair of ski's were available for use in the garage. The property manager, Wayne was very helpful in getting us set up in the house. Another nice thing about the house, it was stocked with beer and wine and the kitched was well stocked with everything you need. We would recommend this property to a friend. Besides the ski area, nearby activities include the Sun Valley brewery in Hailey where we had a pint. Frenchman's Bend hot springs west of Ketchum that we tried to use on a saturday but it was packed it being President's weekend. Probably better during the week. We walked around Ketchum and Sun Valley Mall with all the shops. Drove through Elk Horn Village and past Dollar Mountain ski area which was busy. Sometimes you can find good used stuff at the Gold Mine in Ketchum. We ate in for every meal, so we did not go to any local restuarants.
My family, my sister's family and our two dogs just finished a wonderful week stay at this Hailey house. It is surrounded by canyons with many walking/hiking/mountain biking/horse trails, so we spent every morning walking the canyons with our dogs off-leash, or walking and biking into Hailey for a sno-cone. The house is on a secluded street outside of town, so the kids could freely ride their bikes on the long street and the dogs were able to roam free. There is a large backyard with a beautiful lawn that the dogs loved and the kids and I played Bocce Ball on the ample front lawn. There was room enough in the living room for all of us to sit and watch tv; there is a huge dining room table that accommodated all of us, as well as a breakfast bar and small kitchen table, so the kids had many places to eat, draw, play Monopoly, etc., without having to constantly clear off a space. The bedrooms are huge, esp. the master suite with the en suite bathroom (with jacuzzi tub), and the sheets and ample towels were incredibly soft (really high thread count for the sheets and turkish-type towels from Restoration Hardware). The kitchen had everything we needed and there was plenty of room for 2 people to work in the kitchen at the same time. The best part was that we were 20 minutes away from Sun Valley and Ketchum, so it was no big deal to drive there to horseback ride, skeet shoot, go to the Summer Symphony, etc. (there is so much to do here in the summer). Then, when we were exhausted from all that activity, we could return back to this extremely peaceful house and property and sit on the huge deck and listen to the wind rustle the white birch trees in the backyard. Despite being in a fairly dry canyon, the owners have landscaped about an acre or more of the property with trees, grass, plants, flower pots, etc., which cools down the area around the house a bit and makes it enjoyable to just sit and look at the landscaping and watch the dogs wrestle on the lawn and chase each other until they dropped. I can not say enough good things about this house, but my one word summary would be "peaceful." Lastly, the owners and property caretaker were so laid-back and easy to deal with...they helped to make planning this vacation easy and stress-free. I would definitely stay here again when we return to this area.
