'Our Contented Home'

Congratulations on a very smart choice!

With a perfect location, across a picturesque one way bridge and over the meandering Big Wood River, we are a short 1 minute walk to the beautiful YMCA, bike path, the top-notch Guy Coles skate park, Bigwood Presbyterian Church, and the local bus system, Mountain Rides, which can take you anywhere in the valley, including, of course, near-by River Run or Warm Springs ski lifts!

Full of tall aspen and old evergreen trees, our single home residential neighborhood is as pretty as a postcard, with a lovely walking trail right to Hemingway's beloved Big Wood for fresh water fishing, tubing or just a summer-time cool off!

Downtown Ketchum, with all of its attractions, and fabulous restaurants, is only a half mile away and World Famous Sun Valley is just 1 mile from our home.

As you can see from the photos, you will enjoy a lovely private peaceful home, (as opposed to a 'unit' or condo..no trudging up a flight of stairs!) with a large beautiful living room which includes a 48' flat screen TV complete with Blu- ray player!

For you additional convenience we have a wonderful docking station for your I-Pod and wireless internet to keep you connected~

Our dining area boasts a lovely new marble dining table overlooking our picturesque back deck.. complete with gas barbeque for cool summer evenings~

You will love our fabulous new kitchen with all the nifty stainless steel appliances~ Additionally, a large laundry room with washer and dryer is right off of the kitchen.

The bedrooms are wonderful! Each one has cozy down comforters with professionally laundered and ironed crisp cotton duvet covers and soft cuddly cotton sheets...guaranteed for a good night's sleep!

So, come, be our guests at our home. You will save some money to spend on all the outstanding restaurants and the myriad of activities this magical area has to offer... all adding up to a memorable vacation for you!

**rates reflect 1or 2 guests using master bedroom. Please read notes under "rates" section.

About Jessica Wieduwilt

My husband and I have lived in Ketchum for 42 Years! We met during a summer vacation and ended up making this our permanent home!g. There is a saying in this area.. 'You come for the summer, but stay for the winter.'.... That certainly proved to be true for us! We have had a wonderful life here raising our family and a myriad of animals.I had the good fortune to be an elementary school here for 18 years, while my husband built luxury homes all over this valley. So a big wonderful WELCOME to you. Please enjoy this home and have an enchanting stay in this magical place!

Why Jessica Wieduwilt chose Central Idaho

LOCATION! LOCATION! LOCATION!

Close to everything both in Ketchum and Sun Valley,yet tucked away in a charming neighborhood.

Walk across the street and fish in the Big Wood River, stroll over to the YMCA and take a swim, or go skateboarding in our state of the art skate park. Perfect for the kids!! Both Warm Springs and River Run ski lifts are a 3-4 minute car ride away..or take a 2 minute walk to the free Bus system and let them do the driving! It simply does not get any better than this!

What makes this house unique

Living in a beautiful residential neighborhood, close to the town center can't be beat! Hearing the Big Wood River as you fall asleep on cool summer nights is akin to heaven on earth!

Our Contented home is just that...whether barbequeing on the lovely deck, or sipping cocoa and watching a movie on a cold winter's night, you will always feel comfortable and content in 'your home away from home!'

Loved staying at Our Contented Home

  • 5 of 5

Location on a quiet residential street made us feel like true locals. Being halfway between downtown and Warm Springs lift area is fantastic, the best of both worlds. The house was bright, full of light, really comfortable and very nicely appointed. We felt very lucky to be there.

Sweet wintertime home!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed in this sweet home in Ketchum, Idaho to spend our Christmas holiday. Everything about our stay was just lovely. The home was so comfy and provided plenty of space and cozy, extremely nice bedrooms. The sheets were heaven and the beds were so comfortable. I was 8 months pregnant at the time and couldn't have felt more at home. We all think back on our time in this home fondly and look forward to our next stay. If this house sleeps enough for your needs, you would be making a mistake not to make it your temporary home for your visit to Ketchum. It doesn't get much better.

Thank you for taking such good care of our home during your stay. You were wonderful renters. We hope to have you back soon!! Kind regards, Marcie Tompkins

Best VRBO in Ketchum

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed in several other VRBOS over the years in Ketchum, but none compare to this immaculate, wonderfully located home. This home is very tastefully decorated, but not cluttered as so many rentals are. Plenty of space for skis, boots, fishing gear, etc in the spacious entryway. The 2 Master bedrooms have large closets. It is a short drive (or bike ride!) to either downtown Ketchum or the Sun Valley Lodge. Other rentals pale in comparison. It is SO nice to have the privacy and peace of your own home verses a condo or hotel room. The quiet neighborhood is a huge plus, and the Big Wood River is so close you can hear it from the front deck and the bedrooms with the windows open. It is a pleasure to cook in the kitchen, so much nicer than eating every meal out. We have stayed in this lovely home three times, and plan to visit again and again. Thank you Bill and Marcie for an exceptional rental experience.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much, Mary, for the fantastic review! It is always a pleasure to have you and your husband as our guests. Yes, we agree that although we are only 1 mile from town center, it is quite private and quiet. We continually strive to meet our guests needs in any way possible, and are happy to do what we can to make your stay a memorable, stress free experience! Thank you for always leaving our home in excellent condition and being such considerate renters. We look forward to hosting you again and again! Kind regards, Marcie and Bill

Fantastic Place

  • 5 of 5

There's not much that needs to be said. The house is beautiful both in and out. A 2 bedroom home with a large living room and dining area, and a great little back patio where you can bbq and eat dinner outside. It's close enough to town that you can walk, but separated by lush forrest and a river which makes it feel a lot more remote than it actually is. The area is quiet with a nice view of the mountain. We loved our stay and would definitely rent here again.
