About Brad Schock

We are a family of recreational enthusiasts. Both my wife and I grew up skiing and hence we are a skiing family. In the summer we enjoy all sorts of outdoor activities. Whether out on our ski boat, hiking, camping, or traveling the country in our motor home, we are always on the lookout for fun.

Brad Schock purchased this condo in 2011

Why Brad Schock chose Ketchum

My wife and I both lived and worked in Sun Valley for a few years after college. We taught skiing, worked at the Pioneer Saloon (cook and waitress), and did odd jobs as well. Anything to make ends meet. Originally we went to Sun Valley for a winter, but talk to anyone who lives there and they will tell you that winters are great, but stay for a summer and it is hard to leave. And so it went. When we eventually left it was our goal to some day own a place in our favorite spot in the world. It took over 25 years, but we did it and this unit has absolutely everything we were looking for in the recreational paradise that we cherish.

What makes this condo unique

Your options from this location are so open there is no stress about anything. Relax and have fun

Fantastic place to stay in Sun Valley

  • 5 of 5

Bottom line: this is a great place to stay in the Sun Valley area with your family. Great accommodations. Nice pool. Nice, quiet location. Very near awesome running, biking. I recommend it.

We really enjoyed our stay. I really liked the location both in Warm Springs and the specific location within the Prospector complex. It's right next to the river and near the pool. The cool air and the sound of the burbling river was really nice at night. The kids loved the pool. The hours are kind of lame: 10am to 8pm, but we dealt with it.

The condo is quite nice. It is certainly well stocked. We cooked a number of meals there and there were plenty of dishes, pans, and other useful things. The bathrooms are relatively small and there isn't a tub, which would have been nice for kid baths. But these are small things. It's a nice place and we would certainly stay there again.

Our only real problem was that we had a trailer on our vehicle. Trailers aren't allowed in Prospector. Jim, the property manager, let us know immediately. The parking lot was quite empty, but hey, rules is rules. Jim was super fair about it and actually found a place for us to park our trailer. So it worked out fine. And to be fair to all involved, we didn't think to ask about this before we came.

Cute condo- great location

  • 4 of 5

Cute place- cuter than the photos. The owners are really accommodating and helpful. Deposit was refunded promptly. Parking is great. Plenty of seating. Unfortunately the park across the bridge is closed in the winter- but the condo offers great access to the lifts in winter! So really summer or winter you have great access for fun things to do with the family. We cooked a thanksgiving dinner in the kitchen- it has everything. Better to arrive early enough to get the heat turned on- it takes a bit to understand it and get the place warmed up. We would definitely consider staying here again! Really great value!

Warm Springs Condo

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at several of the condos in Prospector, and this truly is the best location. Access to the pool and courts is outside your door and you can hear the creek from your window at night. The kitchen had everything we needed plus the best spice drawer I've ever seen in a rental. It was clean and everything worked. We will stay again.

Second Visit

  • 5 of 5

Brad is always incredibly helpful, the condo is always clean, loaded with anything you may need for your stay in kitchen.

The master bedroom has an amazing view, I look forward to each stay just for being able to wake up to this view every morning.

We will definitely continue to stay here when we come to Ketchum.

Perfect location!

  • 4 of 5

We've never rented through this site before, so we weren't exactly sure what we were getting into. We were very pleasantly surprised! They were located very close to the ski resort in a cute area with a river running right through it. (Although this is something to make note of if you have little kids, especially this time of year, as it was very fast moving) There was a fun park area and pool. The pool was closed, but we did try out the hot tub. The condo its self was very clean and super nice. The washer and dryer came in very handy. In fact, I can't think of anything we might have needed it didn't have. The only thing I would say, is it would probably be good for them to note that they have a dog. Our 8 year old had an asthmatic reaction as soon as she laid in one of the beds, which has only been caused by animals in the past. She's fine and we just took the blankets off. Otherwise we had a great stay and would come back.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the review. I apologize for the "dog" experience with your daughter. This is not something I had thought of, and there have been a few dogs through there, so I am not sure when this occurred. Based on your feedback I will make sure the cleaning crew cleans the blankets after any animals have been in the unit.
