About the property

Condo, 2 Bedrooms + Loft with 2 single beds, 2 Baths

No better location in Sun Valley! Snowcreek is right next door to Dollar Mountain and Carol’s Lodge, and just a short stroll along Dollar Road to the main Sun Valley Lodge, shops, restaurants, ice rink and entertainment. Free Kart bus leaves from Carol's every 20 minutes for Baldy during ski season. Free Kart City bus provides regular service from Dollar to Ketchum, Warm Springs, and Elkhorn year-round. The regional bike path runs along the edge of the complex. Walk or ride to Ketchum for coffee, or ride some of the 48 miles of trail to Hailey or Bellevue for lunch. Two (2) bikes come with this rental - available for your use.

Snowcreek 1523 is a beautiful, remodeled second floor flat, with vaulted ceilings, hardwood and carpeted floors, designer furnished mountain décor, large deck, and views of Baldy, Dollar and the Resort area. The newly completed, expansive deck with outdoor gas grill makes for wonderful summertime entertainment, as you watch the sun set over the mountains. Perpendicular to the road for privacy, yet located directly across from the Clubhouse and pool for easy access. Yes, this is the Sun Valley area condominiums with their own pool and hot tub!

If you haven't been to Snowcreek before, all units are not the same. Choose upstairs with vaulted ceilings for spaciousness and a loft. Skylights were optional and we have two to bring natural light in. Make sure your unit has an expanded deck, so you can enjoy outdoor living (many rentals still have original, narrow decks). You'll find Baldy and Dollar views here, not just a view of the road or parking lot.

Walk in, sink back and just relax. King and Queen bedrooms, each with its own full bathroom, are located either side of hallway, which opens into an inviting, inclusive living room with river rock, gas fireplace, entertainment center, dining area, and kitchen. Step out the living room slider to the deck area; smell the clean air and hear the rustle of the pines and aspens. Loft, with two twin beds, is above kitchen and securely enclosed with nicely inclined stairs and a latched gate for the safety of children (all other inside and outside deck railings have also been replaced for a safer, more child-friendly environment).

If you’ve been to Sun Valley before, you already understand the beauty of this location; winter and summer. If you haven’t, read on.

For skiers, it’s only a few minutes to the big mountain, and the bus will be there when you are ready to come home; no parking and no walking hassles. If you have children or beginners just learning to ski, you can walk them across the parking lot to arguably the best ski school in North America at Dollar, where they will be taken care of professionally for the day, you can catch the bus to make your own runs down the 3,400 vertical feet of alpine terrain on Baldy, then come back and make a couple of runs with them on Dollar, before walking home together.

If you’re really good, make arrangements for cat- or heli-skiing. On other days, take a skate at the Lodge rink, use the many miles of groomed cross country trails, or walk over to Penny Hill for traditional sledding and tubing (there are two sleds for your use). Later take a horse drawn sleigh ride to Trail Creek Cabin for dinner.

In the summer, Snowcreek has the only on-property pool and hot tub in this area; just walk across the drive to the clubhouse and you're there! Bike, roller blade, or just walk the adjacent trail, hit the links, throw a fly, or anything else that strikes your fancy; you can even take a bike up the lift and ride down the mountain! Don’t miss World and Olympic medalists performing on the outdoor rink from mid-June through Labor Day, the 'Big Hitch' during Labor Day’s wagon parade, the Summer Symphony and October Jazz Festival, both with world-renown players, and while your in town, a Sun Valley Brunch or Buffet.

Be our guest and enjoy our home away from home. We’ll leave you information on all our favorites!

About Nancy and Dale

Seattle-ite's, now in Olympia, who have been coming to Sun Valley for years. This is our second home and we hope you will feel 'at home' while you are visiting with us. We have a number of families that come back year-after-year, and we hope you will join them.

Nancy and Dale purchased this condo in 2007

Why Nancy and Dale chose Sun Valley Area

Location, location, location,... and amenities. We 'shopped' the Valley when looking for a place, and found none better. Close to the Lodge, close to Dollar, on the bus line, on the bike trail... has it's own pool, and always well taken care of by its owner group. We hope you will enjoy it as much as we do.

What makes this condo unique

Not just a rental condo - this our second home, and we hope you will find it attractive, fully furnished and 'comfy' for your visit.

Loved our stay!

  • 5 of 5

We were so happy with our stay at Nancy and Dale's condo. It is a beautifully decorated condo with every amenity our family of five could hope for. We enjoyed cooking in the kitchen, spending time in the sunshine on the deck, and swimming in the clubhouse pool. Nancy and Dale provided us with all of the information we needed to enjoy our stay and we felt right at home from the minute we arrived. We are already looking forward to returning to Sun Valley and hope we will be able to stay here again.

Good location but no AC

  • 2 of 5

Liked the location but with no AC, it was too warm at night. Didn't get a good nights sleep. With windows open still too warm and heard sprinklers, cars and birds in the night or very early am. Next time, I'll look for a place with AC and a little cheaper.

Owner's Response: Bret, Thanks for your feedback; we're sorry you didn't sleep well. Following your visit we installed room fans in all sleeping areas to help lower temperatures and provide a little "white noise". A/C is not prevalent in SV, as night time temps do drop quickly on the high desert. We continue to provide a single night option; many condos require multiple night stays. Housekeeping cost is the same for one night or seven nights, so that makes a single night more expensive, but likely still less for a group than hotel rooms.

Clean, bright, cozy, gorgeous

  • 5 of 5

We were super happy with this condo. It was even better than the pictures online! The bathrooms were unexpectedly super updated and nice. Tons of Sun Valley decor made it feel very homey and cozy. The kitchen was very well equipped. Huge TV in the living room, plus a nice patio/deck. We thought the beds were comfortable too. It was the perfect set-up for our young family. Our 5 and 3 year old slept in the loft's twin beds, which has a nice gate at the top of the stairs and feels very safe. Our baby got to sleep in her own separate bedroom with adjoining bathroom. :) That bathroom had a bathtub so was great for bathing kids. Our larger master bedroom, also with adjoining bath had a big nice walk-in shower, and the bedroom has a flatscreen tv on the wall with a walk-in closet. We even liked how there were hooks with a water-catching-tray under them at the front entry that are clearly meant for skis and ski boots, but worked perfectly for our wet swim gear after a pool visit. Oh, and so convenient that the condo has a baby gate and high chair and pack n play. The complex pool is just steps away and was never crowded and had a nice big pool and hot tub. I also loved the walking distance proximity to the Sun Valley Lodge. We walked over there a bunch of times, and it was super easy, even with our young kids. And you even walk past a beautiful lake on your way.

If I was forced to complain about something, I would say that it did get hot in there! We were there over the 4th of July and the temps were in the high 80's. So from maybe 2pm - 10pm it was pretty hot in the condo, even with all windows open and fan going, but then it would definitely cool off overnight. There is a big ceiling fan in the main living area that did seem to help (although the kids in the loft were hot going to bed at night!) and the two bedrooms were hot as well. We thought just a small oscillating fan in the window corners to get some air moving around would have been great. But this is totally not a dealbreaker, because virtually NO condos in Sun Valley area have A/C (I've looked!), so we would have dealt with the heat anywhere. We've stayed at other condos in the area in the past and they were hot as well.

We hope to stay here again and would highly recommend it. Thank you to the owners for letting us borrow it!

Great place and location

We came to Sun Valley for the first time for a family wedding. The Snowcreek condo was perfect. Very comfortable, quiet, clean and all we had hoped for. Thank you.

Perfect for Family Spring Skiing Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at this condo. The convenience to the Dollar Mountain Lodge (and the great weather) made it a huge success and all our kids had the best time skiing. We were so comfortable and really enjoyed the accommodations. We found the condo to be extremely clean and well-appointed, with many modern upgrades. Thanks for having us, and we hope to get a chance to return soon!
