About Janet Young

This Snowstar condo was my personal home when I moved to Sun Valley full time. I decorated it to give it a warm personal feeling, and enjoyed watching TV in front of the fireplace and having the kitchen so close by. The cozy feel this condo has is something I miss now that I am in a larger multi bedroom house. I also loved the close proximity to town with everything that offered, not to mention having the bike path and ski lifts just outside my door. This provided many wonderful memories. I hope you'll love it as much as I did.

Janet Young purchased this condo in 2002

Why Janet Young chose Sun Valley Area

I fell in love with this unit the first time I entered it. It is unique in shape. It is in the MOST IDEAL LOCATION OF KETCHUM. You can walk or ski right to the lifts and gondola in 5-10 minutes. If road are snow packed I could walk to the movie - 14 mi away. My favorite restaurants and less than 1/2 mile, so left the car in the garage. Speaking of garage, this is one of the only complexes in west Ketchum that has a garage, an exercise gym on site, and hot tub looking up at ski runs.

What makes this condo unique

LOCATION! LOCATION! LOCATION! Only one other complex is closer to River Run lifts and gondola. Free bus which serves all of Sun Valley and Ketchum stops in from of our building. Less than 1/2 mile to grocery store. Less than 1/2 mile to awesome restaurants and art galleries. Unit is private and quiet. It is a one of a kind in the building. Not a typical square or rectangle condo with rooms lined up the hall. See our reviews!

Great Location for Skiing in Sun Valley

  • 5 of 5

The condo is very comfortable for two people. It would be cramped with 4, but it was perfect for us. Nicely appointed and the use of mirrors makes it appear larger than it is. It is right on the bike trail that goes to the River Run base at Sun Valley and when the trail is covered with snow, it's five minutes to put on your skis and schuss to the base of the lifts. It's slightly downhill going, so fairly easy. More difficult coming home, so a 10 minute walk in ski boots. Or, you can take the shuttle which runs every half hour and the condo is the first stop on the line...3 minutes. Just make sure you take the Red-line Ketchum shuttle. Our first day, we took the Red-Line Elkhorn shuttle and got a nice 45 minute tour of the area before making it back to the condo.

The owner Janet is a nice host and met us at the unit. As it was our first time to Sun Valley, she gave us several recommendations for restaurants and local sites that were all great.

Owner's Response: Chris you guys were awesome guests. I loved the way you were so excited about Sun Valley, skiing, my suggestions, and your darling wife. How nice to have such a happy couple as guests. I hope you will return to Sun Valley again. Thank you for your comments in your review. The actual details of how far the ski lifts are will be very appreciated by other guests. Janet

Quiet, Cozy, great location!

  • 5 of 5

My wife & I stayed 3 nights in this condo, and we loved how quiet and comfortable it was. We made dinner in the condo every night, and found adequate pots, pans, and cooking utensils. We did not use the private patio due to inclement weather but it's a nice additional feature. We liked the underground parking, the close proximity to the bike path system, and the closeness to downtown Ketchum, yet it's far enough away to keep it peaceful & quiet!

Great Location and Comfortable Apartment

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at this property. The owner was very easy to work with and accommodating to our last minute travel plans. The location was perfect for us - only a 10 minute walk down the Wood River Trail to reach the River Run Day Lodge. The restaurants and bars were an equal distance walk the other direction. The unit itself was very comfortable for two people and we had plenty of room for all our gear with the storage unit downstairs. We had a car so the covered parking was very helpful since the rental companies don't provide brushes and scrapers. We made good use of the hot tub but never got a chance to use the gym. Overall, this is a great value for the location and amenities. We will definitely stay here again on our next trip to Ketchum!

The Condo was great. It was clean, quiet, nicely decorated and perfectly located for access to the bike/ski trail and a quick walk to the downtown Ketchum restaurants and shops. The owner was terrific to work with!

Fabulous Place! We had the best time here!

  • 5 of 5

This condo is in the perfect location in Ketchum/ Sun Valley... It's a very short and easy walk down the path to the River Run base lodge and gondola. The unit itself is filled with creature comforts, from the velvety blankets to the well appointed kitchen. Although it's listed as a 1BR, we were able to use the super comfortable pull-out couch with air mattress for an extra friend (or two). The back patio is private and would be great to use for an afternoon glass of wine after a day of biking, hiking or fishing around the area. The condo building itself is also very nice and quiet and just a couple blocks to downtown Ketchum / restaurants / bars / shops, etc. We highly recommend this unit to anyone looking for a private location that is still close to everything you could ask for in Ketchum / Sun Valley.
