About the property

3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps up to 5 comfortably)

These owners have completely remodeled this 3BR/2BA condo using imported elegant European furnishings and tasteful architectural details, making you feel just like you are staying in a luxury ski chalet tucked away somewhere deep up in the French Alps. The soft honey colored Fir/Larch wood paneling used throughout the house and the wide-plank bleached pine wood floors give you a cozy mountain chalet feel while letting in the bright sunlight so famous for Sun Valley.

All alone on it's own upstairs is the private master suite and bath which has a modern but Alpine cozy feel, offering gorgeous clean lines and sumptuous Italian fabrics, soft wood-paneling, a Kohler deep-soaking bathtub and an inviting elegant sitting area complete with your very own 46' wall mounted plasma HDTV with DVD player all of which can be viewed from your luxury hotel style queen size Euro pillow top bed made with fine cotton sheets.

Downstairs there are two more beautifully appointed, cozy bedrooms, one of which is set in a red French toile papered room with two single beds each dressed with fine cotton sheets and a gorgeous Italian white cotton upholstered headboards; the second guest bedroom has an elegant charming built-in wood paneled bunk bed both of which are dressed with elegant Italian draperies and fine cotton sheets. The downstairs bathroom has an ample, modern glassed in shower area with large hydro massaging shower head, a custom built-in sink with an Italian white marble countertop and a discrete but spacious, fully functional laundry closet equipped with a large stack Bosch washer and dryer. The kitchen is compact but well equipped for anyone who loves to cook romantic dinners in the mountains. There is a five burner gas stove, a complete set of gourmet Al Clad pots and pans, and a microwave, dishwasher and full dinner service for 12.

Finally, the heart of the house is the cozy, impeccably furnished living room where a fabulous modern, clean lined gas/wood fireplace will warmly greet you while you sip a glass of wine admiring the room's elegant European antiques and furnishings including hand made Italian red silk paneled lampshades set dramatically up behind the couch and sitting area. A stunningly back lit built in bookcase area with a 42' wall mounted swiveling plasma TV with DVD player and a gorgeous sounding and looking Bowers and Wilkins iPod dock makes staying home to dine and watch a movie an inviting option especially since there is a custom made pine dining table with ample seating for six.

Additional amenities include a heated storage room with a private locker for ski equipement and/or at least (1) bike.

This is certainly for the discerning guest as the fine attention to details have made this small and cozy condo a real jewel box of a find in Sun Valley.

About Leslie Knutson

We have lived in Europe for more than fifteen years and have fallen in love with European furnishings and style and which we have carefully brought back and integrated into our home in Sun Valley.

Leslie Knutson purchased this condo in 2006

Why Leslie Knutson chose Ketchum

My family has had a place in Sun Valley since the early 70s and I have come nearly every year since, bringing back my own family to share in the magic of Sun Valley whether it is for the winter wonderland of Christmas or the breathtaking beauty of summer.

What makes this condo unique

We love the location of our condo as it is minutes away from all the outdoor activities that we love including downhill skiing from River Run Plaza or hiking up Baldy. At night we are just steps away from the movies and downtown Ketchum which provides many shopping and dining opportunities. Just a stone's throw away is the picturesque Sun Valley lodge with it's classic ice-skating rink and world class Spa amenities.

Perfect in-town location

  • 5 of 5

Great location to walk to everything in town, and the mountains. We planned to rent a car and never did! We loved the charming condo -- it's so well kept, clean and comfortable, and quiet.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review. We have many hidden gems in our property, the least of which is our in-town location making renting a car obsolete! Leslie

little alpine retreat in the heart of ketchum

  • 4 of 5

we truly had a wonderful time at the little "chalet". mary, the property manager met us upon our arrival. she could not have been more welcoming.

the place was decorated with so much charm. we were very comfortable at 4 people. the location was great. a short walk into the town. parking was a breeze.

leslie, the property owner is lovely. the only thing i will say is that if you enjoy cooking, the kitchen is a little small. we hope to be back some time in the summer.

Owner's Response: Our attention to detail is what we think makes our cozy Alpine retreat special and while the kitchen is modest there is everything that a cook could want to make a scrumptious meal by the fire after a great day of outdoor activities.

Charming Getaway

  • 5 of 5

I loved staying in your charming condo in Sun Valley. It was beautifully appointed and perfectly situated near all the great shops and restaurants in downtown Ketchum. It was wonderful to return after an active day in the cold weather to such a cozy and warm place.

Perfect summer vacation

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed again in this charming 3-2 unit in Ketchum, ID this summer. We love the amenities that this home provides. It is very comfortable and quiet. And the location is so central to everything. We never used our car. We would stay here again and highly recommend this VRBO.

Lovely condo in Ketchum!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay here! The condo was very clean, cozy and a great home base to walk around Ketchum. Leslie was very responsive and helpful leading up to our stay and and Mary was so helpful upon our arrival and made us feel very welcome - and even helped carry our bags! She was in contact with us during our stay with tips and would definitely helped us out further if we needed anything. We would definitely stay here again if we were to return. I recommend Bigwood Bread in downtown Ketchum - great breakfast and chocolate chip cookies - we walked there from the condo a few mornings!

Owner's Response: The location of our property - just a (5) minute walk from downtown Ketchum makes staying with us convenient for going out to all the great restaurants and bars in town. We value our guests feeling welcome from our white glove service property manager Mary to our pristine and well appointed cozy interiors. Thank you for your kind compliments and staying with us.

Great place!

  • 5 of 5

Just got back from Ketchum and a stay at Leslie's place. Like the other reviewers said, it's well appointed, clean, is in a great location (walking to everything) and is as described / photographed on the website. Mary was super nice and easy to deal with, waiting for us when we arrived. We never needed anything else from her, but I got the impression that she was more than willing to assist us in whatever we needed. Leslie was also easy to work with... prompt responses to all emails. I would happily stay there again. Thank you Leslie and Mary!
