Recent Sun Valley Area reviews

  • Great base to explore from

    "This house accomodated our group(plus large dog) very comfortably. All rooms were well appointed and the living area was a warm place for all to congregate. It was a refuge to return to after an outing to relax and entertain ourselves. We were within reasonable reach to all our intended activities be it wilderness or shopping. For our needs, the large fenced yard was also convenient. The owner was easily contacted and accessable. All this combined to make an enjoyable visit to the area. This is a property I would recommend to others as well as return to myself."

  • Best ever

    "It was a pleasant surprise to find everything in working order and so well furnished from A to Z. Unfortunately, so often one arrives to a rented vacation home to find it barely resembles the photos and it is in anything but working order. Should we have the opportunity again, I definitely look forward to renting your home for our stays in SV. Thank you!"

  • great find!!

    "We enjoyed our 3 week stay!! The condo was roomy (fit 2 pack n plays for grandkids) and the large deck was a real plus!! The babbiling "brook" and breezes kept the little ones happy. The neighbors were quiet and friendly. The pools were convenient as was downtown Ketchum. We'd definitely stay here again."

  • Family trip to Sun Valley

    "We had never been to Sun Valley before, and we were so happy we went. My wife and I and our four elementary school age kids had a fantastic time -- horseback riding, hiking, swimming, rafting, fly fishing, paddleboarding, mountain biking,.... This condo was a great place to stay. It was just as advertised. The owner was very helpful before the trip when we spoke over the phone, emailed, etc. The place was very clean and had everything we needed. When we first flew into Boise it was 102 degrees outside, so we were nervous, since I knew the place did not have a pool (we figured the hot tub was not going to be a big draw this week). Luckily, the condo has air conditioning, and it worked well. We slept comfortably every night. The local YMCA had a great pool, though we hung out at a friend's outdoor pool in Elkhorn, and really loved spending one day wading in the clean and fast flowing river behind the condo, and swimming much of a day in Redfish Lake an hour or so away. Normally, we do not like to leave Maine in the summer, as it is incredible at this time of year, but Sun Valley was a blast, with jaw-dropping scenery, so we will no doubt come again, maybe next time to ski."

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.
