Overview

Central Idaho Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths (Sleeps 4)

This very attractive, two-bedroom, two-bath, ground level condo has a very warm and comfortable feeling and has been completely remodeled in tasteful colors and textures. It is an end unit that provides privacy but it is also very close to the year-round hot tub & sauna and the summer pool. The unit is located in one of the few complexes in town that has grounds with open areas and landscape. The living room is furnished with a comfortable suede sofa and a leather side chair and gas river rock fireplace. The TV-47'/DVD/CD are on a surround system. You will find Berber carpet, stone tile, with ceiling fans in the bedrooms. The kitchen features upgraded appliances, granite counter and stone tiled floor. The dining table seats 4 with 2 bar stools at the breakfast counter The bathrooms are all new with granite as well. There is Wi-Fi and internet! A good sized deck is located off the dining area and is on the edge of a courtyard. You'll find a BBQ and outdoor furniture for your outdoor entertaining or casual dining. We have a second more private deck on the side of the condo too. A very nice setting for your quiet afternoons.

Sports and Recreation: Most people associate Sun Valley recreation with World Class skiing, but not every Sun Valley recreational activity requires a lift ticket. The surrounding area supplies visitors with an endless variety of spectacular scenery and sporting diversions. In Sun Valley, you're only limited by your imagination. During riding season we have two bikes for the use of our guests.

Cross-country ski the Harriman Trail, the staging area for the Boulder Mountain Tour, one of the nation's pre-eminent cross country ski races. Or strap on some snowshoes for a moonlit walk and dinner at one of Galena Lodge’s full moon dinner nights. Take the family on a heli-skiing adventure in the magnificent Sawtooth Mountain range. Or turn a few circles at the legendary Sun Valley Ice Rink, where you might rub shoulders with Olympic skaters. There are endless opportunities and locations to go hiking, backpacking, mountain biking, white water rafting or land your first 18' Rainbow Trout on the Big Wood River. The possibilities are endless.

Dining: Like many things in Sun Valley, culinary endeavors are more a way of life than mere activity. Coffee and pastry shops to jump-start your morning or power up your afternoon. Sushi that rivals Tokyo's finest. Healthy or hearty portions. Heart-conscious or vacation-worthy decadence. Whether you're looking for a post-workout lunch, pre-theater dinner or wee-hour nightcap, Sun Valley and Ketchum's more than 50 restaurants and spirited nightlife are sure to please.

About Roy McMahan

We enjoy traveling and entertaining our friends. When we are here in Ketchum it's skiing, walks, riding bikes, barbecues and the mandatory glass of wine.

Roy McMahan purchased this condo in 2002

Why Roy McMahan chose Central Idaho

We chose to buy in this particular spot because it was recomended by several friends who have lived in the area for years. Location is everything, it's a close walk to everything in town. Also, this is one of the very few condo complexes that actually have grounds. Lots of trees, grass and plants surround the entire area. It's very pleasant to sit and have meals on the large deck in the warm months.

What makes this condo unique

Put your car away and enjoy this in-town location: on the bike/x-country path and about five minutes walking to the River Run lift/Lodge and into town. In summer we go biking or for walks on the twenty five miles of maintained paths in the Ketchum area. You can walk into the center of Ketchum for lunch, dinner or a movie. It's just so easy to get everywhere from here. We enjoy the deck and the park like surroundings here at Horizon 4. The condo is located right across from the pool and hot tub, very handy!

comfortable ski lodging

  • 5 of 5

Our family of four was very comfortable in this condo for our recent ski adventure to Sun Valley. The space was immaculately clean, well-supplied with amenities, comfortably furnished, and quiet. We took advantage of the hot tub, which is indeed very close to the unit. We never did quite figure out the bus, but given the amount of equipment we were hauling, were happy to just drive your car about two minutes to the River Run base area. The ski area is lovely, by the way, a great experience for everyone in our party. We also ate very well in Ketchum, particularly enjoying the Ketchum Grille, Town Square Tavern, KB's, and Cornerstone. Warfield Distillery has potential but was clearly working out a few kinks.

A little miscommuncation with the entry code was immediately resolved, and some beeping smoke detectors needed to be dismantled. We were a bit surprised to have to pay for laundry (did we miss this in the description somewhere?), but a roll of quarters from Atkinson's (and figuring out which dryer actually dried clothes) took care of that.

Those are minor issues, however, and we highly recommend this lodging for comfort and convenience on your next trip to Ketchum.

Great condo for a vacation

  • 5 of 5

Great and clean condo for up to four. Condo was as described. The first floor was great for three seniors with skis equipment. It is conveniently located to town and the ski lifts.

The kitchen was well equipped and made meals easy.

I highly recommend this condo.

Very nice, comfortable and clean condo

  • 4 of 5

We had a great stay at this condo. The unit had a very well stocked kitchen with everything you really need. The beds were very comfortable as well as the sofa and chair in the living room. It was in a great location near town and the ski lifts and parking was very easy even during the holiday season. We would stay again.

Car: recommended

The River Run location provides great access to the ski lifts, bike trails, downtown restaurants, nightlife and shopping. Once you park your vehicle, if you chose, you will not need it again until it's time to leave. A free shuttle bus covers the Ketchum area just off the property. There are many miles of bike paths maintained (summer and winter) adjacent to the condo.

The bike path runs north for 10 miles and south for 16 miles along the Big Wood River with great scenery to take in as you ride or walk. It is groomed in the winter for Nordic Skiing and is also available to ski on to get to the lifts. All you need to bring for your vacation in Sun Valley is a change of clothes and to go grocery shopping when you get here.

Other Activities: Shopping, Cross Country Skiing, Wildlife Viewing, Snowmobiling, Snowboarding
