Upstairs you will find a master bedroom with King bed, walk-in closet, private bath with double vanity counter, jetted tub, tiled shower and private toilet. The master also has a private balcony with Baldy views.

The second bedroom has a Queen bed and lots of closet and dresser space. The third bedroom has 2 twin beds (which can be converted into a King), and generous closet and dresser storage.

These two bedrooms share a bathroom with single sink vanity and tiled shower/tub.

The private patio features a hot tub, propane BBQ and dining for 6. A large grass common area is adjacent for the kids to run around while you enjoy a soak in the hot tub!

About Michelle Sabina

This townhouse was purchased after selling our home in Hailey and moving to Hood River, OR. We wanted to keep our 'roots' in Sun Valley and loved our weekend getaways to our second home in Ketchum. In August, 2016, we moved back to Hailey and now look forward to meeting our guests and being available should you need anything during your stay. We have provisioned our townhouse to be as comfortable as our full-time home and hope you will feel the same warmth, joy and comfort as you do in your own house! Please make yourselves at home and enjoy all the wonders Sun Valley has to offer.

Michelle Sabina purchased this townhome in 2001

Why Michelle Sabina chose Ketchum

We love this location because you can ski to the lifts in less than 5 minutes, jump on the bikes and ride out to the new Golf/Nordic center or into town for shopping, a meal, a movie or a walk to the river with your kids to seek out fish and rocks to throw...all from our front door. No loading up the car with gear... just grab your skis or bikes and GO! You can't get more convenient than that.

What makes this townhome unique

We love being able to look up at the mountain from our living room and master bedroom. Walking/skiing to the lifts is about the best benefit you can get while staying in a ski town. Walking access to the bike path and river and downtown Ketchum are wonderful too!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Dear Sabina Family,

What a wonderful visit to SV! Your home, once again, provided the perfect home base for our vacation. Everything was wonderful - beautiful - spectacular and so very, very comfortable. Thank you and have a wonderful year!

A perfect Fall getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We had such a wonderful time at Michelle & Craig's Ketchum townhome. The location is perfect and so close to town, River Run, the river and bike path. They have thought of everything and the house so well provisioned. We can't wait to return again - it won't be soon enough!

Perfect Spot From Which to Enjoy Sun Valley

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time once again in Sun Valley. The town of Ketchum never disappoints and this particular location was fantastic. We were able to walk to most everything - town, bike path, art fair, lodge, etc. The house was perfectly laid out and had everything we needed (dishes, pans, etc) to have a great week with family and friends. I highly recommend this rental.

Location, location, location....

  • 4 of 5

If there is such a thing as a "bulls eye" for the best location in Ketchum, this condo is right on target....walk to "downtown", the River Resort and ski lifts at Baldy Mountain, the river, bikeways and walking paths all pass right by the complex.

The unit is very nicely appointed, very spacious the owner/manager is great and easy to work with and she has made a real effort to try to have every kitchen gadget and outdoor toy available for your stay.

You can park you car (in the garage) and leave it there your whole trip, everything is that close by.
