Recent Sun Valley Area reviews
"A very nice place to spend a few days or a few weeks. The house easily accommodates large groups. The view is fabulous and the house is very comfortable. So glad we stumbled upon this and will be looking for a reason to return. The owner is easy to work with and the price is quite reasonable."Guest: J & J Date of Stay: October 2014 Review Submitted: October 15, 2014View listing
"This unit is amazing, it is so immaculate and is exactly how it is pictured/ described. The kitchen has everything that you need. The location of the unit is so convenient, its at the most a 5 minutes away from all the restaurants/ downtown area. We really enjoyed your condo and it was well beyond what we hoped for. I would recommend this place to anyone in a heartbeat."Guest: Neha Date of Stay: August 2014 Review Submitted: August 16, 2014View listing
"This condo has the perfect location . . . about a 5 min. walk/ski to River Run lodge and lifts and an easy walk to downtown Ketchum with lots of shops, restaurants and art galleries. We had dinner at a new place, Enoteca, owned by the Ketchum Grill. Excellent and very popular with the locals including my family. The unit was exceptionally clean and beautifully maintained with lots of homey touches - gas fireplace, soft blankets, comfy bed, tea and coffee, shower gel and nice soaps. The owner was very helpful and you could tell she really cared about the condo as she had lived there herself. I was in Sun Valley to attend my niece's wedding. The mother-of-the-bride, my sister, lives in an upstairs condo with a fantastic view so it didn't matter that #5 had no view (the only drawback). My brother-in-law knows the owner and was able to help organize my lodging and had the door open when I arrived. Thanks Janet, I had a great time and would highly recommend this property to anyone looking for a cozy, small place to stay."Guest: Beauty Date of Stay: March 2014 Review Submitted: March 23, 2014View listing
"We just spent a week with family and friends at this amazing estate to celebrate our wedding weekend - and it was perfect! Plenty of room for everyone to sleep comfortably: parents and siblings had privacy in the guest house, friends had a central place to hang out in the main house, we had the entire upstairs master, and we even had some people staying in RVs. The property is large enough to host an event - we had a 4th of July BBQ for about 50 people on one of the lawns, as well as give everyone parking and breathing space. The garage was huge and we used it to stage the many bins and boxes for our wedding (at Galena Lodge), with enough to room to still park a truck inside. There are so many washers and driers that everyone went home with clean clothes - and sheets for the RVs. The kitchen and dining area was perfect for huge breakfasts and dinners, as well as late night entertaining - there were plenty of dishes and glassware/utensils for everyone (plus 2 dishwashers for easy cleanup). The hot tubs and creekside environment helped relax everyone between events and there were plenty of outdoor spaces for games and for our dog to play. The master bedroom/bathroom/patio area was perfect for the bridal party to get ready for the wedding, with enough room for a hair stylist and makeup artist to do their work. Ed the owner was amazing to work with - very prompt and detailed in his responses. Everyone who stayed with us said they would love to rent this property again in the future!"Guest: Jenny C.

Sun Valley Area Travel Tips
Sun Valley, Idaho for Fun in the Sun and Snow
Sun Valley, in Blaine County, Idaho, is known as the "Grand Dame" of ski resorts. The name Sun Valley is used to describe the resort itself and the region generally--the valley area south of Hailey and the city of Ketchum. To get to Sun Valley travel could not be easier. Just 2.5 hours drive through scenic vistas from the major airport at Boise, the area is also served by Friedman Memorial Airport which is less than 15 miles away. By road, the Sun Valley is easily accessible from Interstate 85 and State Highway 75 running through the region. Famous for its great ski conditions, the weather goes from the 20s Fahrenheit in winter to the high 60s Fahrenheit in summer.
Find the Perfect Snow in Sun Valley, Idaho
With over 250 days of sun per year, you may believe that it is not an ideal ski location but you would be wrong. The days may be glorious and sunny but the nights bring the snow and each morning, the snow conditions are fabulous. More advanced skiers head to Bald Mountain, affectionately known as "Baldy," for its challenging conditions. It has a variety of constant-pitch terrain of assorted difficulty levels, a 3,400-foot (1,036 m) vertical drop and little wind. Among serious skiers, Baldy is reputed to be the best mountain in the world. Beginners and intermediate skiers will find the treeless Dollar Mountain perfect for developing their skills and learning. With Sun Valley vacation rentals available close to both mountains, visitors will find the perfect property for their individual needs.
For winter visitors who enjoy fishing, there is an opportunity to try the challenges of ice fishing at several rivers and lakes.
Don’t Miss the Spectacular Sun in Sun Valley’s Summer
When the snow melts and the temperatures climb, Sun Valley is rapidly gaining popularity as an ideal outdoor location for family fun. The Sawtooth National Forest has a variety of recreational activities to suit everyone. Much of the forest is primitive and undeveloped wilderness, great for exploring and getting back to nature. It is also an archeological area with almost 1,500 heritage sites to discover. It offers a great opportunity to learn about the area and its archeology, and understand the importance of the natural environment. The area has a wealth of hiking and backpacking trails, horseback riding, mountain biking, trail biking, and both lake and river fishing.
There is no better way to get a feel for how the original settlers and inhabitants explored the area than on horseback. The area has some spectacular riding trails, one of the best of which is Cold Canyon. It is a scenic ride, best seen in late summer and early fall when the fall colors are in their prime. Many of these trails are closed to motorized vehicles, making for safe, scenic, peaceful rides.
The fishing season starts in May, usually on Memorial Day, and licenses can be obtained at local stores. The main fishing areas include Big Wood River, the North and Mile Fork of the Boise River, and part of the Payette River. Species in abundance in the rivers include several varieties of trout, such as rainbow, golden, brook and cutthroat. The best early season fishing is at the Salmon River Drainage.
