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 Central Idaho

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!"

Best secrete in Ketchum

  • 5 of 5

This is a great place to stay. Super clean, well kept, and dare I say cute. I rented this for some business colleagues and they loved it. They especially loved the great baked goods provided by the owners...not to mention the great coffee provided by the local roasting company Lizzy's Fresh Coffee just a block away. With Grumpy's and Lizzy's within one block of each other you have everything you need.

Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

This home was amazing! From the adorable decor, beautiful landscape, thoughtfull amenities, great location, and generous front door suprises, this place will be hard to match. My family and I fear the next vrbo in a different city won't come close to our new standards. Will definitely plan to to stay again if we're are lucky enough to have it available.

Nice location in Ketchum

This house is what draws me back to Ketchum!

  • 5 of 5

This is the second time we've stayed here. Bill and his wife really know how to create a welcoming and peaceful environment. The house has everything we need, it's incredibly quiet, and yet it's right in the middle of town so we can walk anywhere. Easy access to the highway for the ski trails in the winter. Our stays have always been exceptional. And not only is it comfortable and convenient, but Bill was there early in the morning before our ski race plowing the parking area and clearing our car of the snow. Then we were even more spoiled by his wife who left some delicious baked treats for us a couple times during our stay. I can't imagine staying any where else. Honestly, even staying in other VRBO's around the country is disappointing compared to our experience at this place.
