About the Property
Quality Private Home 4 Bedrooms, 4.5 Baths, (Sleeps 10-12) Close to trails-river
Consider this beautifully crafted, spacious log home for your vacation rental in the Sun Valley and Ketchum area. Located in Chocolate Gulch, six miles north of Ketchum/Sun Valley, this getaway offers hiking, mountain biking, skiing of all kinds, running, fishing or simple relaxation just out your back door on the trails of the Sawtooth National Forest. You'll also enjoy the small, easy-going neighborhood of gracious homes and the wonderful views in all directions.
After entering through the spacious foyer of this dramatic two-story home, you'll walk into the sunny living and dining areas centered by a beautiful Finnish Tulikivi fireplace. The large open kitchen is modern and well equipped, including espresso maker. Included downstairs is a guest half bath and laundry room.
Upstairs in the main house are two large bedrooms each with their own tile bathroom, desks, TVs and luxury linens. The upstairs bedrooms have handmade queen log beds and covered porches for reading and viewing the yard and mountains.
There is also an attached but completely private apartment off of the main house. The apartment offers kitchen and living area with Italian wood stove, South facing deck and one bedroom and one bath. Windows surround you viewing mountains in all directions. Ideal for some separation within a group for either children, parents, or house guests.
On the east end of the home is a another large new suite with a gorgeous marble bathroom. This space gets wonderful winter sun & has 2 queen beds. This suite has it's own outside double entry & 2 large south facing French doors.
The home comes complete with quality furnishings, including digital cable TVs, DVD player, ,stereo center, copy and fax machine. High speed wireless internet access is available throughout the house. Enjoy the Barbeque on wrap-around covered decks overlooking the spacious yard with aspens, spruce, and occasional wildlife. In the Summer enjoy my vegetable garden. Ski tuning bench for the serious cross country skier also is provided.
This is an environmentally conscious home with recycling, composting, and organic products to complement the wonderful Idaho well water. Other luxuries include radiant heat throughout (including large two-car heated garage) and an outdoor wood fired hot tub.
Staying North of Ketchum/Sun Valley and out of the hustle of the tourist areas makes your holiday special. Feel like a local and enjoy Idaho and the wonderful recreational opportunities that are literally out the back door. Come see for yourself!

Incredible outdoor access literally out the door!
About the owner: I built my home myself & take a lot of pride in it. I've lived in Ketchum for many years and am active in the environmental community & many community non profits. Ketchum Sun Valley is one of the best places in North America & i'm lucky to call this community my home.
Why the Owner Chose Ketchum, ID, USA:
Living at the north end of the Wood River Valley is incredibly nice. Our end end of our valley has the least traffic, the darkest sky & the best access to the wilderness & wild country to the north. It's only a short drive into he Sawtooth Valley for hiking, skiing & solitude.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
Private & scenic with incredibly trail access right off the west porch. The Chocolate Gulch, Oregon Gulch & Fox Creek trail system are all accessed just off my west porch. In the summer the catch & release fly fishing on the Big Wood River is excellent & just a short walk away. In the winter the Harriman Trail for cross country skiing is also just a short 1/2 mile drive away. One can hike in the newly created Hemingway Boulder Wilderness area by just a short hop from my garage. It's so close you can even ride your bike to one of the trail heads!
