About Jerry Ann or John Heaney

We have lived in Ketchum for more than 50 years. We are avid cyclists and skiers and raised our kids in Ketchum. Beyond our primary occupations, we owned ski shop in town in the 80's and brought the first windsurfers to Ketchum in the 70's.

Jerry Ann or John Heaney purchased this apartment in 1975

Why Jerry Ann or John Heaney chose Ketchum

We have always had this little apartment, which sleeps a maximum of four has been a convenience for our friends and relatives; (and now, our own grown kids who bring their own families to town.) We like having visitors and know that you too will enjoy your stay.

The mountain provides world class skiing in the winter, and in the summer offer miles of hiking and mountain biking trails that rise 3300 feet above the valley floor. (or take the Gondola).

Absolutely Delightful!

  • 5 of 5

I could not have asked for a better place to call home for my short trip! Jerry Ann and John are kind, easy to communicate with and very responsive. The apartment is tidy, comfortable and has all the amenities you'll need. It is also easy to get around from the apartment. It was just a five minute walk to the edge of downtown for me.

Thanks again Jerry Ann and John!

Great time in Ketchum!

  • 5 of 5

LOCATION, location, location! This property was just a short walk to the miles of paved bike trails, hiking trails and a few blocks from the main part of town. Except for the one time we loaded up our bikes to do some mountain biking outside the area, we never used the car! We literally rode our bikes or walked anywhere we wanted to go! After active days outdoors, the outdoor hot tub was very relaxing. When we checked in John and Jerry Ann greeted us (fresh cookies were already in the cookie jar!) and let us know they were available if we had any questions or concerns. Our stay was great and hopefully we’ll be back next year!

Great Get-Away!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in Ketchum recently for a long weekend to enjoy some spring-like ski conditions at Sun Valley. I can't say enough good things about the friendly townspeople and the terrific skiing...but truly our hosts were the BEST! They surprised us with homemade oatmeal cookies in the cookie jar and made us feel right at home!

The unit is on a very quiet street of private homes, we had off-street parking and secure storage available for our skis. Yet we were walking distance from Sun Valley and downtown Ketchum. John and Jerry Ann thought of everything! The unit was spotlessly clean and well appointed with comfortable beds, nice furniture and completely stocked with supplies as listed (even a step-stool so shorter people like me can reach the top shelves in the kitchen). Anyone who travels as much as we do, knows it's the little things that can really "make" your trip...like having a choice of pillows on the bed or plenty of hangers. They earned all five stars from us! We will definitely be going back for a longer stay next time.

Keep in mind, this was the perfect size property for two adults who wanted two bedrooms but didn't mind sharing a (small) bathroom. I suspect four adults would be crowded.

Sweet Stay in Sun Valley

This is a gem - we are so happy to be here and the owners are fabulous. Very accommodating and a great location for skiing. Home-made oatmeal cookies in the cookie jar when we arrived - what a bonus!

Absolutely perfect!

We stayed for 5 days and had a fantastic trip! Jerry Ann and John are lovely people and made our time in Sun Valley wonderful. The place is cozy and clean, and in a perfect location to walk to the River Run lifts and into town. We cannot wait to return!

Best Place to Rent in Ketchum

  • 5 of 5

Jerry Ann and her husband are great hosts! The property was clean and quaint. Great location, close to town, bus route and gondola. All the amenities were there, kitchen was stocked with pots, pans, etc. Loved the plush robes, great to curl up in after a relaxing hot tub. The two hammocks in the beautiful backyard were wonderful to rest on after our hikes. Would definitely stay here again!
