Ketchum house description

Welcome to our Sun Valley home! The house features a reverse floor plan to maximize high ceilings, exposed beams and beautiful mountain views upstairs in the living room, dining room, and kitchen. The lower level houses three bedrooms, rec room, bonus room, laundry, and heated garage. The house wraps around an outdoor patio which hosts a five man hot tub and a spectacular outdoor fireplace.

Our house is ideally located in a nice neighborhood near the Wood River, and at the base of Baldy between River Run and Warm Springs. The free shuttle service is a 200 yard walk and downtown Ketchum is a half mile away. Nearby there is a public trail leading through an aspen grove to the Wood River. Guy Cole Skateboard Park, paved walking and bike paths, and the Wood River YMCA are all within a 5 minute walk.

The house was designed by local architect Mark Pynn and built by Rick Walsworth, and won the 2012 Idaho AIA award for 'best use of wood'.

                            Wow. We were pleasantly surprised how nice this home is. Incredible fireplaces in great room, master bedroom, and by jacuzzi. Perfect kitchen and awesome TV with easy to use Sonos. I am staying again for sure. The only noise are the birds and river. A short walk to town or bus line. You won't be disappointed.

                            It's hard to believe, but this house is even better in person than in photos. It was immaculate and extremely comfortable. The main living area is huge and the kitchen is a wonderful place to cook in. The owner gave us great restaurant and trail suggestions. The house is perfectly located. It's a 10-15 minute walk to downtown Ketchum, and the paved Wood River trail is just a couple of blocks away. I would recommend this property to anyone!

                            What a beautiful home. We immediately felt at ease working with Rob and Laura, they are so kind and polite. Our family visits Sun Valley every year and this was our favorite trip by far. Nestled in such a quiet neighborhood at the base of the mountain - we enjoyed our bike rides, sunsets, and the serenity of the four balconies/patios. The hot tub was great, the kitchen was perfect, and if you come - try and plan to dine together at the huge, inviting kitchen table. Thank you for a wonderful weekend!

                            We really enjoyed our stay here. It's rare you can find rental property of this caliber available. The decks were comfortable and mostly private. We spent a lot of time on them. The location was semi-private and quiet, yet just minutes from town by car or bicycle. Would stay there again.

                            My family and I rented the house for a month and had a wonderful experience! It is perfect for families with teenage children who can leave on their bikes or hop in the river to fish or tube. The house is as fabulous as described! I would highly recommend this lovely Ketchum home!

                            We had a group stay in this house for the Sawtooth Relay. This house was amazing, I mean from the pictures we knew but when we go there we were blown away. We had the option to relax on one of three balconies (one with a bbq) or sit on the patio where the hot tub was. We could ride bikes or walk to town (very close) and the neighborhood was quiet. When we go back we know where we will be staying (as long as it's available). We could not have had a more enjoyable stay!

                            A group of us went up to Ketchum for a birthday weekend and the place was absolutely beautiful! It was perfect for our group of 7 girls-the property manager, as well as Rob and Laura were so easy to work with and very accommodating. It was the perfect, walkable distance from downtown, with a beautiful view of the mountains from all FOUR patios. It was lovely to bbq outside and enjoy the hot tub in the evening. Our deposit was returned to us in less than two weeks without problems. I would definitely recommend this beautiful home, and would stay there again!

                            This was my second trip to this amazing and gorgeous home. Once again, our stay exceeded expectation and worked great for our party of 7 women. This house has a beautiful and well thought out open floor plan that makes it perfect for entertaining. It also includes all conveniences and amenities. We used the hot tub and decks daily, perfect for enjoying sunshine or stargazing. The property is well maintained and very clean. The location couldn't be better - close to town, skiing, and trails. I hope to return again next year.

                            Stayed here for 3 nights and absolutely loved it. The heated floors, hot tub and gorgeous decorating of this house made it an amazing place for a vacation. Would be a fun place to visit in the summer as well. The three decks make it easy to enjoy the sun, whether you want to be in it or not. I would highly recommend it.

                            This was the perfect vacation rental for our large group (10). The house is spacious, smartly decorated and designed and close to EVERYTHING. The house, situated in a residential neighborhood, is cozy and clean. During our two week stay, we cooked many meals in the kitchen and ate our dinners either outside on the spacious deck or at the large family style dining table. The kids used the hot tub twice a day and someone came to clean it weekly (yay!) Everything is well maintained and in working condition. Super easy to coordinate with owners and the property manager, who lives next door. There is a lot of attention to detail and care with this rental. We highly recommend it. Hope to return for another two weeks sometime soon.

                          Year Purchased: 2007

                          About the owner: Rob and Laura enjoying a few moments of freedom from our three children! We reside in Seattle, Washington and look for every opportunity to come to our second home in Ketchum, Idaho.

                          Why the Owner Chose Ketchum:
                          Sun Valley is like no place in the world. Breathtaking mountains, premier skiing, dry climate (nice escape from Seattle), arts, and wonderful community!

                          The Unique Benefits at this House:
                          Nice quiet area and friendly neighbors. Great location, near town and the YMCA, and the free community bus line. The house is very comfortable with lots of ammenities for kids (bunk room, games, piano keyboard, mini ping pong, etc.).
