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

Spacious, clean, and convenient!

  • 5 of 5

Janet was thorough, detailed, and available for any and all questions! The condo was impeccably clean, with clear directions for where to locate any necessities, and is within walking distance to Main Street in Ketchum. The only downside is that there isn't a ton of natural light in the space given it is on the first floor, but besides that, couldn't be more pleased with our stay!

Perfect location right off bike path and close to shops and restaurants!

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I stayed in this cozy property for three weeks during the summer. It was right off the bike path and close to River Run so the location was great for our activities surrounding hiking and biking. Property is small, but perfect for a couple. Loved the underground parking and the patio with flower beds was a nice place to have coffee in the morning. Property was quiet and clean and offered amenities such as a hot tub and small workout room.

First place I've ever rented that didn't have at least enough coffee for the first pot!

Owner's Response: I'm so sorry coffee was missing. I would have brought some immediately if you had notified me. I appreciate how you took such good care of my unit. I feel very badly you have marked me down one star because of lack of coffee.

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!
