'Our Contented Home'
Congratulations on a very smart choice!
With a perfect location, across a picturesque one way bridge and over the meandering Big Wood River, we are a short 5 minute walk to the beautiful YMCA, bike path, the top-notch Guy Coles skate park, Bigwood Presbyterian Church, and the local bus system, Mountain Rides, which can take you anywhere in the valley, including, of course, near-by River Run or Warm Springs ski lifts!
Full of tall aspen and old evergreen trees, our single home residential neighborhood is as pretty as a postcard, with a lovely walking trail right to Hemingway's beloved Big Wood for fresh water fishing, tubing or just a summer-time cool off!
Downtown Ketchum, with all of its attractions, and fabulous restaurants, is only a half mile away and World Famous Sun Valley is just 1 mile from our home.
As you can see from the photos, you will enjoy a lovely private peaceful home, (as opposed to a 'unit' or condo..no trudging up a flight of stairs!) with a large beautiful living room which includes a 48' flat screen TV complete with Blu- ray player!
For you additional convenience we have a wonderful docking station for your I-Pod and wireless internet to keep you connected~
Our dining area boasts a lovely new marble dining table overlooking our picturesque back deck.. complete with gas barbeque for cool summer evenings~
You will love our fabulous new kitchen with all the nifty stainless steel appliances~ Additionally, a large laundry room with washer and dryer is right off of the kitchen.
The bedrooms are wonderful! Each one has cozy down comforters with professionally laundered and ironed crisp cotton duvet covers and soft cuddly cotton sheets...guaranteed for a good night's sleep!
So, come, be our guests at our home. You will save some money to spend on all the outstanding restaurants and the myriad of activities this magical area has to offer... all adding up to a memorable vacation for you!

About the owner: My husband and I have lived in Ketchum for 44 years! We met during a summer vacation and ended up making this our permanent home! There is a saying in this area.. 'You come for the summer, but stay for the winter.'.... That certainly proved to be true for us! We have had a wonderful life here raising our family and a myriad of animals.I had the good fortune to be an elementary school here for 18 years, while my husband built luxury homes all over this valley. So a big wonderful WELCOME to you. Please enjoy this home and have an enchanting stay in this magical place!
Why the Owner Chose Ketchum, ID, USA:
LOCATION! LOCATION! LOCATION! Close to everything both in Ketchum and Sun Valley yet tucked away in a charming neighborhood. Walk across the street and fish in the Big Wood River, stroll over to the YMCA and take a swim, or go skateboarding in our state of the art skate park. Perfect for the kids!! Both Warm Springs and River Run ski lifts are a 3-4 minute car ride away..or take a 2 minute walk to the free Bus system and let them do the driving! It simply does not get any better than this!
The Unique Benefits at this House:
Living in a beautiful residential neighborhood, close to the town center can't be beat! Hearing the Big Wood River as you fall asleep on cool summer nights is akin to heaven on earth! Our Contented home is just that...whether barbequeing on the lovely deck, or sipping cocoa and watching a movie on a cold winter's night, you will always feel comfortable and content in 'your home away from home!'
