About the property

7 Bedrooms, 5 Baths, (Sleeps 20)

If you have a large group, the Palace at Sun Valley is hard to beat! This amazing home is simply ideal for groups of up to 20 people. The bedrooms, living rooms, the whole home has tasteful furnishings and great views of the surrounding mountains. You will notice the quality from the hardwood floors to motorized shades and beautiful fir trim. With 3 living rooms, 2 kitchens, 2 dining rooms, game room, and 7 bedrooms allow large groups spread out, yet the main living room, dining room, and kitchen are large enough to accommodate most or all of your party. 2 kitchens allow 2 to 4 chefs to whip up an amazing feast for all to enjoy. The formal dining tables in the main area seat 14, and there is bar seating for 9 more. When you have a kitchen island with bar seating for 9 people, you know you have a large space! The second full kitchen has bar seating for 4 and formal dining for 6. With all this space, you can get everyone together, or split them up, whatever you prefer! The main living room has 3 full size couches, and yet not one of them is backed up to a wall. This is a great place to relax by the fire with a book from the library, or watch the big game on the HDTV. Speaking of games - don't forget about the game room! In addition to the 3 living rooms, the game room is ideal for entertainment. It has an assortment of arcade games, a foos ball table, ping pong table, and 70 inch TV with video game systems and associated games, controllers, etc. The kids will love this room, but don't be surprised if you find some adults having a blast here too!

On the north wing of the home, the master suite is fit for a King or Queen. This suite has 3 rooms and features vaulted ceilings, an HDTV, and patio. The main bedorom area is so large it makes the King bed look small. French doors lead into the dressing room, and another set of french doors open into the master bath.. The master bath is a5 piece bathroom which includes a long bathtub, a large steam shower, water closet, and vanity with dual sinks. The second master bedroom is upstairs. Again the room is more than ample for the King bed and nightstands. This 2nd floor room has extra nice views of the mountains, as well as an HDTV and private bathroom. The third master bedroom is actually a whole apartment! The private bedroom has a King bed, vaulted ceilings, HDTV, and great views. Then you have the living room with beautiful leather sleeper sofa, HDTV, full kitchen, and dining area. The bathroom for this apartment features granite counters, a walk in shower, and water closet. Bedrooms 4 and 5 are separated by the 3rd living room, which again features a beautiful leather sleeper sofa as well as a fireplace and HDTV. Bedroom 4 has a Queen bed, gas fireplace, and HDTV while bedroom 5 has 2 bunk beds, 4 Twins overall. These two bedrooms share a full bath which features an iron claw tub and shower. Upstairs, bedrooms 6 has a Queen bed and HDTV while bedroom 7 has 2 Twins and an HDTV. Both have great views and they share a nice large full bathroom.

The lot is a good size at 1.3 acres. Mature trees on the border of the land create a nice private retreat for you and your group. The large front yard is nicely landscaped with an irrigated and flat lawn area. Out back, you have a very large wraparound patio that is ideal for BBQs and outdoor dining. This is also where you'll find the extra large hot tub, which has plenty of room for 8 adults at a time and lights that change color. With 4 sets of french doors, the front and back yards become an extension of the homes main living space, perfect for entertaining or for you to watch over the kids at play. Parking is no problem either. The 3 car garage is oversized and there is plenty of parking outside for more cars, trailers, or even an RV. The location is very convenient. Downtown Ketchum and the River Run base of the Sun Valley Resort are only 3.6 easy highway miles from the property. If you head south, downtown Hailey has more shops and restaurants to offer only 8 miles away. Bikers, anglers, and beauty enthusiats will love that the Sawtooth Botanical Gardens, Big Wood River, Wood River Trail system are all a short easy walk, or bike ride, from the home! In fact, you can hop on the Wood River trail and connect to trails throughout the area!

Great space and seating, some issues

  • 3 of 5

Stayed 4 nights over Thanksgiving, 2017. House is located about 4 miles south of Ketchum, just north of Botanical Gardens, on east side of and about 200 yards off highway. House is elevated over houses to the east, so had good views to the east. Views to the west were ok too since brush and trees screen house from highway. Lots of parking area, 3 car garage plus outside parking.

House is large. We had a multi generational family of 9 adults, 2 teens, one infant. Used all 7 bedrooms. Very comfortable for all. Could easily have handled 3 more adults and 7 or so children. 3 bathrooms on suite, 2 bathrooms are shared by 2 bedrooms each. No half bath for common use.

General seating area in main room was large and comfortable with 3 large sofas in a C shape, large screen TV, large dining room table (held all of us), large extra table, large utility table, & seating around kitchen island.

Pros: Very clean. Good space. Lots of TVs and fireplaces. 3 living rooms, although main room was only one really used. Apartment above garage includes one of the living rooms, kitchen, bedroom and bath. Decent counter space, good storage in main kitchen. Easy access to Harriman Trail by walking up to Gimlet and east to trail. Good parking. Good WiFi. Heating system worked well, although temps were moderate.

Cons: Main kitchen is adequate but surprisingly small for such a large house and has only one stove, range and frig. Additional frig in garage and frig/stove/range are in apartment; garage & apartment are a long way from the main kitchen. Stairs to apt very steep. Interior of house looked like it was in the middle of maintenance - few decorations on wall, paint samples on wall. No stereo in house. No desktop computer. Playstation console in game room didn't work properly. Had Wii console but no Wii games. 3 out of 4 vintage stand up arcade games worked. Some windows missing blinds, some blinds didn't work. Not all windows that should open will open. If staying in summer, no AC, although not usually an issue in Wood River Valley (it was last summer). 2 lamps in living room next to couch were not plugged in and had no obvious place to plug in, one was missing turn knob, plug in below couch didn't work. Other random plugs through house didn't work including two in kitchen.

Conclusion: Stayed in similarly sized house on Warm Springs in 2016 - this was cleaner, had better configuration. Most of the cons are pretty minor in big picture. We enjoyed our stay.

Great for a group

  • 4 of 5

We are a group of friends from college who do an annual fall golf outing. This year we stayed in Ketchum and this house was perfect for our group. Large, centrally located and a well stocked kitchen. TVs had dish, so we were able to catch the college football games we wanted to see.
