Red Neck Resort!
Red Neck Resort!
The house was wonderful with the big fire place and the cabin look inside! We loved the forest in the back yard with lots of trees! It looked like a post card picture, and we were in it!!! A GREAT place to take afternoon walks, go jogging, bike riding, & take hikes! We loved every minute we spent there! The house has everything you need- towels, bedding, pots, pans, anything & everything needed to cook with! It is very relaxing, very big, & so very clean & organized. There is no cramping here! If you decide to stay here since this is the best place within miles of the lodge & downtown, be sure to treat it as your own, because I feel like it is my own! I will be back! This is no "Red Neck Retreat", it is a RED NECK RESORT, with a hot tub & all!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Sorry, I just renamed your place :)

Ski Club Stay at Redneck Retreat
Ski Club Stay at Redneck Retreat
The Retreat was perfect for our team. The spacious living / dining room had enough nooks and separate tables for study, games, visiting and snacking that multiple activities went on at once. The long dining table comfortably sat the whole team to pleasant sit-down meals and doubled as an effective prep space. Afternoon sun on the deck, and the hot tub were enjoyed by all. The Retreat is a bit out of town and in a quiet residential neighborhood so there is a peaceful, lazy atmosphere about it. It is also very close to some of the best hiking trails in the valley, and only a few hundred yards from the Big Wood River and great fishing. The owners were exceptionally easy to work with and we certainly would sign up to use the property again!

It's a great place to relax and get away from the city, with wonderful views of the Sawtooth Mountains. We came with a large grooup of guys to ski, and everyone had plenty of room to spread out. Great fireplace and hot tub to enjoy after a day of skiing.

Perfect mountain retreat for a large group
Perfect mountain retreat for a large group
We had a fantastic time at the Redneck Retreat! I stayed here with 12 adults, and everyone loved the place. There is a a nice private hot tub in the backyard, a cool walk-around fireplace in the living room, open floor plan great for large groups, a nice big flatscreen TV, and its located only 6 miles north of Ketchum. It was a quick drive into town or to the ski areas. There are also some hilarious pictures on the walls - you can tell that a lot of fun was had here over the years! The owner was responsive and helpful, the listing described everything well, and I would highly recommended the property.

Year Purchased: 1979
About the owner: My wife & I love to ski. We live and work in Portland Oregon, but love Sun Valley and the Wood River Valley. Good friends recommended the Sun Valley Ski School as one of the best in the nation and we took our first lessons on Baldy in the mid 70's. The 300 days of sunshine, the snowmaking, the grooming and the improvements made by Earl Holding, have made it our favorite winter resort. The groomed corduroy with an inch of 'cheater snow' make everyone a wonderful skier, you just can't make a mistake! But as the saying goes people come to Sun Valley for the Winters but stay because of the Summers. As good as Sun Valley is in the Winter, it is even better in the Summer.
Why the Owner Chose Ketchum:
With a name like 'The Red Neck Retreat' you know there has to be a story and there is! After way too many drinks on a ski trip to Park City in the 70's we decided we could do our own version of a 'time share.' We took a vote and Sun Valley was everybody's favorite. When we sobered up the next day it still seemed like a good idea. So 5 guys formed a partnership in 1979 with a mandatory Buy/Sell in the event of death, disability or divorce and came up with the name 'The Red Neck Retreat,' after the Jerry Jeff Walker song 'Up Against the Wall Red Neck Mother.' There is a ski sign over the garage with double black diamonds that says 'Hardcore.' Hardcore is what we call the boys 3 day ski trip in January that has being going on since the mid 60's. It still only has two rules: One, no matter what you do the night before you are on the lift at 9 am. Two, you ski the last run of the day from top to bottom and the last guy down buys the first round of beer. My last remaining partner died on the chairlift in Feb. 2012. He skied the bowls all day in a foot of new snow, had lunch at Seattle Ridge and died of a heart attack on the Cold Springs lift heading home. Not a bad way to go, but way too young at age 69. As a result we have decided to expand the rental beyond the handful of friends who go every year.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
We choose the house out North of town because it is out of the hustle and bustle of downtown Kethum, yet only 15 minuets from the Warm Springs and 11 minuets to the River Run lifts in the Winter. It also catches the afternoon sun. With an easement to the Big Wood River we enjoy some of the best fly fishing in the Wood River Valley. Only a few locals know of the access to the river from our neighborhood. In the Summer when the town is packed with tourists, you are not affected. You are just 2 miles to the Sawtooth National Recreation Area, the Harriman trails for Cross Country Skiing in the Winter and Mt. Biking and Hiking in the Summer. Galena Lodge is just 17 miles North and Red Fish Lake Stanley 33 miles from there. During the Winter we drive 11 minuets to the River Run Lodge and ride the Gondolla, to the Round House, to begin our day.
