Date of Stay: December 26, 2010 Review Submitted: January 22, 2011

The homes location is great, halfway between Hailey and Ketchum on the river. We were an easy 5 minute drive to the River Run parking lot. The house layout was great with the great room downstairs, pooltable and and separate media room upstairs. Lots of privacy. Access to the cross country ski gear was a big plus. Cross country trail is literally out the driveway.

Luxury Family Retreat on the Big Wood River in Sun Valley with Hot,Tub & A/C
average rating of 5.0 based on 21 reviews

Beautiful Location

  • 5 of 5

We chose this house because of its location on the Big Wood River and the views upon arrival were stunning. We had fly fishermen in our group who were thrilled with the location. The skiers were all happy as well given how close the house is to River Run lodge. The house fit our three families perfectly and the hosts were extremely attentive making sure we had all we needed. We loved the location, the hot tub and balcony overlooking the river, the media room and the great, well stocked kitchen. We had a fantastic time.

A little bit of heaven on the "Big Wood" river.

  • 5 of 5

Our extended family (grandparents, kids and grandkids - ages 71 years to 15 months) spent a wonderful week in this expansive home near Sun Valley, Idaho. The home is beautifully maintained and accommodated our diverse group with ease. The many bedrooms function as their own mini suites allowing everyone as much privacy as they might desire. As an avid cook I especially appreciated the kitchen which had everything needed to prepare any kind of meal. The home is shielded from the road by a grove of pine and aspen trees and is both private and serenely quiet. Going to sleep and waking up with only the sound of the river in your back yard is very special. Steps away from the property is a bike path which runs south to Hailey and north past Ketchum and Sun Valley. Built on an old railroad rightaway, it follows the river for miles and miles and is a great way to get into either town without having to deal with vehicular traffic. Besides cycling we enjoyed horse back riding, ice skating, fly fishing, hiking and fine dining in both Ketchum and Sun Valley. The "Pioneer" for dinner and the "Kneadery" for breakfast were two of our favorites. This is truly a five star property and I would highly recommend it to everyone.

Outstanding Vacation in a Stunning Home!

  • 5 of 5

This property is spacious and beautiful! There were 11 of us celebrating a min-family reunion for the holidays and we were all very comfortable in this sprawling luxurious house. The hot tub felt awesome after a long day of skiing and everyone had fun shooting pool and playing chess! We were thoroughly relaxed there and it was such a nice home to return to after skiing, ice skating, sledding, cross-country skiing, shopping, dining and exploring all that Sun Valley has to offer! I highly recommend this property for a truly relaxing and memorable vacation!!

Great place for a large family!

  • 5 of 5

We assemble three generations, from London, Los Angeles, Seattle and Portland for a Christmas ski holiday. The house was perfect. Huge living room, entire separate family/TV room for kids (never used), dining room table with room for at least 14, hot sauna, hot-tub... Indoor parking for 3 cars. Great views on creek, birds in abundance at feeders. Hot tub fried in power surge right before we arrived and Nancy had new one delivered by crane w/in two days. We plugged in too many laptops and smartphones, and Nancy had electricians there upgrading the kitchen circuit that day. Highly recommend.

This is an incredible home! Spacious, beautifully maintained, and fabulous views of the river from both the downstairs and upstairs. The media room is great with a huge leather couch and an extremely large flat screen TV Every morning we sat at the breakfast table watching the varieties of bird feeding from the different bird feeders. An easy drive to town and the restaurants, there, but we also enjoy eating in. We appreciated the completely stocked kitchen with all the appliances, utensils and pots and pans we could possibly need. We enjoyed wonderful hikes, and just hanging out enjoying the views.We definitely recommend this house to anyone who loves being in the beautiful Sun Valley area and wants a huge wonderful house to call home!
