Ketchum townhome description

As is said of Hemingway, Best of All, he Loved the fall, in the Wood River Valley. Walk out your front door to the Wood River Trails path, travel north or south for miles of biking, hiking or fishing. Or, take a five block walk to downtown Ketchum, with loads of restaurants, galleries and shops to explore.

The Townhome: This beautiful, high quality and well-furnished three-story townhouse is located in West Ketchum at 299 Wood River Drive at the corner of Bird Drive, both quiet streets. You can walk or ride about 200 yards on the bike path to the River Run gondola. The equipment operates most of the summer for folks who just like the view from the summit or to hike one way. The walk to downtown Ketchum or the Big Wood River takes 10 minutes. If you prefer not to walk, the city bus stops right in front and there is taxi service.

This townhouse is for people who like quality homes and furnishings that have been meticulously maintained. Main floor has beam ceilings and genuine hardwood floors with Navajo rugs. The top floor has vaulted ceilings, gas fireplace, wall-wall carpets, TV and full music system. It has been an occasional vacation home and is in like-new condition. There is little noise or traffic.

The main living area is on the second floor above the large two-car heated garage. The kitchen has modern appliances with built-in microwave, gas stove and a bar with stools. It is equipped with more than all the usual kitchen amenities. The dining area sits six comfortably, and has a balcony with an outdoor gas grill.

The living area is spacious and bright, with windows and glass doors on two sides, providing views of the Smokey Mountains. The gas fireplace is set in a floor-to-ceiling native stone chimney, which also houses the entertainment center with 42” TV, DVD and surround sound. We have high-speed wireless internet (WiFi) available. Outside there is a fenced private (for our unit only) patio with private hot tub and flower garden.

On the top floor are two complete master suites, each with its own stairway, queen size bed, vaulted ceilings with circulating fans, and huge closets, TV, and separate tiled baths with shower and tub. One suite also has a gas fireplace.

The downstairs third bedroom is furnished with two twin beds, its own bath and TV. The twin beds can be joined together to form a king bed if requested. There is a washer and dryer.

The Town: In Ketchum there is the magnificent new Community YMCA with a swimming pool, yoga, climbing gym, zumba and many other activities for kids and adults of all ages. It's brand new, squeaky clean and low cost. There are several other high quality fitness centers within a short distance, including High Altitude Fitness, 5B Crossfit, and Zenergy at Thundersprings.

It would be hard to find a better condo in a better location for anywhere near our prices. We can offer low rates because this unit is rented and managed exclusively by its owners — two long-time local families of over 30 years. No management commissions are paid (Managers often charge up to 35% of the revenue) so few luxury condos of comparable quality and location can be had at our prices. This townhouse is also available for monthly, seasonal or long-term rental. And ask us about our classic log house between Ketchum and Hailey, available for all or part of winter.

Traveler Reviews: We always are making improvements and adding features that we think our guests might need or appreciate. At the top right of this page is a link to the Online Traveler Reviews (survey) so you can comment on your experience in Sun Valley. We would appreciate any complimentary feedback that you think might help other potential guests. If you do so, before VRBO/HomeAway will post it they will send it back to you for your approval and confirmation in order to prevent bogus posts.

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2005

                      Why the Owner Chose Ketchum:
                      We have been skiing since 1954 and visited most of the US ski resorts. Then we saw Sun Valley and it was love at first sight in 1968. It's an old story in this valley: 'We came here to ski and just never went home.' The old railroad & mining town of Ketchum was growing up and eventually the word got out about how beautiful, safe and affordable the Valley was. As the news spread, more skiers, mountain lovers, and 'sick-of-the-city' folks continued to arrive for decades, while houses were sprouting in the canyons. The ski resort originally had only one choice for lodging, the Sun Valley Lodge and Inn. As the word spread, the demand for lodging got critical and the building boom began. And that's how even plain old ski bums like ourselves began buying condos for rentals.

                      The Unique Benefits at this Townhome:
                      Sun Valley has many things going for it. For one thing Bald Mountain has some of the most satisfying skier-friendly terrain on Earth. Chosen by two Austrian professional ski instructors in 1936, the mountain offered an opportunity for skiers from beginners to experts, of which there were few in this country at the time. Further, the summit of Baldy is less than 10,000 feet, so we all can breath easily when we ski—a valuable asset in the prevention of hypothermia, fatigue, and continual thirst. And it's seldom windy. Oh yes, the ski runs at River Run face south so we get the sun in the morning when we need it. So much about the mountain. Our condo is located in one of the quietest and most private parts of Ketchum. Yet is within a few minute walk to the River Run Plaza, home of the Gondola, Ski lifts, River Run Lodge, restaurant and ski shop. Plus acres of free parking.
