About William Glenn

Full-time Ketchum resident since 1972. My wife and I personally manage and maintain this property.

William Glenn purchased this house in 1979

Why William Glenn chose Ketchum

I like older houses and saw the potential to make this something special.

Convenient location in town; easy walking distance to shops and restaurants.

What makes this house unique

One of the reviews says it best:

"This darling little house is one of the best values you'll find in this popular resort town. The house is really cute! It's extremely clean, decorated beautifully, fully equipped, with everything you need right at hand for a perfect stay. A great bonus is the large basement with a ground-level entry for storing bikes and skis. Best of all, you are NOT in a condo, rather in a private house with a private yard, and plenty of parking. You're within walking distance of everything in downtown Ketchum, and a free bus ride to everywhere else. Owners are really nice to deal with and very welcoming. You'll be glad you chose to stay here!"

Charming cottage, great location!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at the Cozy Hideway. The house is charming and clean with great amenities (French press, fireplace, etc....). The location is convenient to everything. There were cookies waiting for us upon arrival and Bill started our mornings with deliveries of warm baked goods. We will definitely be back. Thanks!

I would definitely recommend this pad and will stay here again. Everything was perfect. It was so cozy.

My husband loved the blueberry scones the owners baked and left on our door step.

2nd summer in a row here

  • 5 of 5

We love this place! Great in-town location (30 paces to Grumpys/ short ride for the kids to go to bike track, YMCA, Big Wood River). The kitchen/bedrooms are fully stocked with everything you need. The owners are over-the-top nice (left basket of fresh baked goods on our door step one morning). I would recommend it for family of 3-5 or 2 couples.

Great way to heal a broken foot!

  • 5 of 5

Thanks for the cozy, easy access, well stocked, great pastries, and close to plenty of activities wonderful roomy cottage island in a sea of condos. Would like to know more about the early Sun Valley history of this property. A true gem of great craftsmanship.

Might have to come back in the winter for some turns on Baldy or a tour on Galena.
