Welcome to West Ketchum.
Our French chateau inspired cottage is close to everything and far from nothing.
Imagine being walking distance to downtown Ketchum yet peacefully removed from the bustle and noise of Main street...all in the same spot.
Step inside our Sun Valley cottage to find sandstone floors, fine hardwood details and hand plastered walls throughout the custom handmade 2 structure property.
The large backyard and garden are an oasis of foliage in the Summer and a stunning backdrop of snow covered aspen trees come Winter time. Bald mountain hovers directly behind the property.
Every corner will surprise you with quality, detail, fit and finish.
The large living room has two couches and contains an HDTV gathering area, wood fireplace and wet bar that allows everyone to spend time together and relax.
The Bose sound system pumps out rich musical backdrops while the dramatic above cabinetry lighting sets the mood for a sensational evening.
Everyone stays in the mix with kitchen, dining and living room all connected and opening directly onto the expansive back patio and side BBQ and hot tub area.
Whether enjoying the aroma of wild thyme over a glass of wine on the slate patio or a cool cocktail in the hot tub with snow falling, the seasons will delight you at our one of a kind home.
Nothing else in Sun Valley is like it!
Originally purchased in 1997, our family continues to enjoy visiting the Wood River Valley for holidays, get together, skiing, snowmobiling, hiking and more. We're very excited to be able to share our wonderfully unique home with visitors!

Our family has been visiting Sun Valley since the 1960's as there's just nothing else like it. The combination of small town charm along with world class amenities and superb skiing make Ketchum & Sun Valley unbeatable!
In terms of our property in particular...Simply put, there's nothing else like our house in the Ketchum area. It's a made by hand French styled chateau/cottage with tremendous craftsmanship throughout. Beautiful natural woods & stones adorn the inside and out.
Being so close to town as well as having 2 structures on the property allows all visitors to enjoy time together as well as maintaining multiple daily itineraries. People can walk to and from town and the adjacent outdoor activities all throughout the day as they see fit.
Additionally, our home in particular is unique with its French inspiration and superb level of hand craftsmanship.
West Ketchum truly is the best of both worlds. We have full outdoor enjoyment areas yet are walking distance to Main Street. It's a real treat!
We loved the property with more than enough beds for our group of 9. Kids had their space and loved the hot tub! Double ovens made cooking big meals a breeze! Home and kitchen is extremely well appointed. Definitely will be staying here again!!! Loved the view and the experience.
This was our second stay at this house. It is just lovely and super well-equipped. Owner is exceedingly responsive. Highly recommended.
Everything about this home was first rate and as advertised. The home is quite beautiful and extremely comfortable with all amenities. We had two couples and a fifth adult and all enjoyed the house. The walk to downtown Ketchum is easily manageable. The owners were quite accommodating, immediately responsive and a pleasure to deal with.
We enjoyed our stay in this charming house. It was immaculate, well-stocked and cozy. The location let us walk into town for morning coffee and was close to all amenities. The garden in back has a lovely fountain, hammock and a pretty flower garden that made for great naps and good cocktail hours!
It's a little short on closet space as several areas have been turned into sleeping nooks for children. And it would have been nice to have an ice maker for the cocktails! The garage and the apartment above it really helped as we could store our bicycles and let one guest enjoy some added privacy. We would love to return!
Loved this home. It was perfect for entertaining and just hanging out. Just an FYI, there are only "beds" for 8 (I don't count pullout sofas and sleeping on the floor on futons real beds) although if you have kids, I guess this can work. It worked for us but if you are having 11 people splitting the cost of the house, this wouldn't be fair for those who got the cubbies. The cubbies are like closets. Other than this, we loved this home. Very cozy. I would have given this place 5 stars but we had problems with both downstairs toilets. They kept overflowing and created a huge mess. The owner was right on it once we called them and got a plumber out. A couple of other things that I would recommend to the owner, you have to have curtains that close. Go to Pottery Barn or Restoration Hardware and buy curtains when they are on sale. I can't imagine in the winter time not having curtains. It keeps the cold out. Also, you need an upright vacuum and broom with dustpan and bars of soap. There was not any of this when we were there. You can go to Costco or Target and get this cheap. When you have large groups of people at the house entertaining (my son got married up in Sun Valley), one needs to clean up the house. Using a shop vac and having to lug that heavy thing around and then to use the hose was a pain and took forever.
We have just spent a week in this beautiful country French style home within walking distance of the town. We could not have asked for a lovelier accommodation that was thoughtfully outfitted with every convenience. Located on a quiet lane, the front and back gardens were so pretty and perfect for our young grandchildren to run around in. The home is furnished very nicely and the super comfortable beds had lovely linens. The kitchen was incredibly well equipped and a joy to cook in!
The separate apartment was perfect for two adults and two young children. The main house has two cute sleeping alcoves off the bedrooms that our little granddaughters loved!
We would definitely return to this great home!
Just 1/4 mile behind the house is wonderful fly fishing in the Big Wood River. A trail head that's 100 yards from our driveway leads right to the river.
Additionally, there is a magnificent public tennis court (2 courts) just a few hundred yards from the house.
