Nice location in Ketchum

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay. Bill couldn't have been nicer and the daily fresh baked scones & cupcakes were a real treat! Good location and comfortable place:)

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.

Cozy cottage in Ketchum!

  • 5 of 5

I was looking for a small well located house in town that had character & charm. This was it and exactly right!

Although bedrooms are a little small, it has a warm and comfortable vibe (as every mountain cottage should have!) and the owner has done a terrific job in the restoration of this vintage home. Coffee beans and bag of super delicious cookies were awaiting our arrival! Owner very attentive to details and provisions! Responded quickly to our requests for early checkin, etc., and was very accommodating. The location of this cottage is remarkable and quiet; beautiful treed lot and within easy walking distance to everything we needed (good restaurants, galleries, fishing and sports-related options). Our reunion visit was only limited due to lack of time in the Valley; however, if you have gear such as skis, bikes, sports equipment, there is plenty of storage area in the very clean basement, which also houses a washer & dryer. We will look forward to coming back here soon!

Perfect hosts and location. . .HIGHTLY RECOMMENDED!

  • 5 of 5

This home was perfect for 3 couples. Bill was very accommodating and welcoming. A few days prior to our visit, he called to check in to see if we needed the two twin beds pushed together as a king bed. I appreciated him anticipating our needs as 3 couples. The house is so cute and cozy and in the perfect location. We were able to walk into town to go to breakfast, dinner, etc. Bill also brought us his wife's fresh basked treats each morning. . .what a pleasant surprise!! She is a tremendous baker. My husband and I visit Ketchum frequently, and I am looking forward to possibly renting this place out again during the winter.

Amazing house and location with best owner ever!

  • 5 of 5

We were overwhelmed by the attention to detail in this home. The owner let us check in early and stay late and was so accommodating. He even brought us fresh home baked goods every morning of our stay! The place was immaculate!! It was also very cozy but had plenty of room to spread out. They provided everything you would normally expect, plus several other extra items that were nice to have on vacation. We were able to easily cook meals at the home since there was ample kitchen space and supplies. The owner was so incredibly friendly and helpful. We simply could not have asked for a better stay! We stay at plenty of vacation rentals, but this was the best by far!!
