About Janet Parry, Owner

My whole extended family made the move to the Wood River Valley in 1997 to escape the crowds, congestion and security issues of the LA Basin. Clean air, friendly people, magnificent views, yet culturally astute. Fell in love with the valley on our first visit. Bought a home and started an extensive renovation project to make it our own. I am a registered nurse, and my husband is a professional photographer. He is in seventh heaven with all the photo-ops of the area.

Janet Parry, Owner purchased this estate in 1996

Why Janet Parry, Owner chose Hailey

Comfortable seasonal mountain climate, with dry moderate temperatures. Beautiful Mountain and valley vistas all around, with an abundant outdoor activities year around. This truly has the feel of a small community, with friendly people, but with a big city's cultural activities. Great, upscale restaurant, live theatre, classical and top name pop music venues.

What makes this estate unique

Quiet and private and safe location on a private, cul-de-sac drive. Great mountain views. Serene quiet landscaped 1+acre lawn and gardens. 3 patios for relaxing or entertaining. BBQ or soak in the Hot-tub. Make 'some-moors' at the outdoor fire-ring.

Great family ski vacation house!

We appreciated the large, bright and comfortable rooms, well-stocked kitchen, heated boot room (!!) and the dog-friendly vibe. Would definitely return. Thanks for a great week!

Fantastic week of skiing while staying in a beautiful home.

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful experience staying in this home. There were 8 of us and we felt very comfortable. The kitchen has every item you could need for cooking. Plus spices and condiments for us to use. We arrived on New Years and the owners even left us champagne ! The wood burning fireplace with its gas starter is the bomb!!! We enjoyed that every night! It was so nice to get in our cars in the heated garages. The hot tub felt great after a day of skiing. The location is perfect, close but not in the busy town. Ski slope is just minutes away. We would stay here again and hope to get back to Sun Valley in the summer to try the fishing.

Great Home for a Sun Valley Get Away!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time staying in this spacious home in a quiet neighborhood. It was a short drive to both Dollar Mountain and Bald Mountain for skiing. We loved using the private hot tub after our skiing each day. The grill and hibachi grill were also used and appreciated. We had plenty of space to spread out, and enjoyed the large sectional sofa/recliner in the family room. The fireplace with the gas starter was also handy. There were plenty of supplies, and the kitchen was one of the best stocked kitchen we have had when renting vacation homes. Tom and Janet were both very helpful and welcoming. Thanks for a great ski vacation! The Michigan Ski Crew

Very Nice Family Home

  • 5 of 5

My extended family and I enjoyed a weeks vacation at this large, very accommodating home. We enjoyed all aspects of the house, from the hibachi grill to the hot tub and found everything to be in good working condition. The owners, Janet and Tom, were very helpful in offering advice, showing us around and helping us feel comfortable. They were totally accessible to answer any questions we had. We had several small children (three boys 5, 6 & 6) with us and found this to be perfect for them. They especially loved the putting green and large yard area. The kids also loved riding in the golf cart with their parents or teenage sister but the owners did not feel comfortable with that so eventually they were asked not to. We did not bring any pets but it would have been a perfectly good place for them also. We ate outdoors almost every night and it was lovely. The trees in the backyard are so very pretty and the mosquitoes even left us alone! There is no air conditioning, and we were here during an unexpectedly warm week, but the house stayed relatively cool if we just made sure all the doors and windows were closed by the late morning. The beds were really comfortable and the rooms are very spacious. You do need a car. It is centrally located so everything is only a few miles away in either direction. All the appliances, tvs, wi-fi, and hot tub were super easy to use and there were no problems. One of the adults did sit in a plastic chair at dinner outside which broke, and we were asked to leave $30.00 for it when we left, so I would maybe avoid adults in the plastic outdoor furniture - which is easy to do since there are other options. Some of our group (Verizon) had decent reception on our cell phones but two of us (ATT & T-Mobile) had no reception at the house or nearby. There is wi-fi but it only stretches so far. In town (Ketchum) and ironically, at the top of Baldy and on the middle fork of the Salmon River, it was fine for all. Go figure! Anyway, overall, a very pleasant week in a beautiful home and one that we would definitely recommend to all. Thanks Janet and Tom!
