4 Bedroom, 5-1/2 Bath, Family Home.
Each bedroom has it's own attached bathroom. Additional bathroom off the den & a 1/2 bath off the main hallway from the garage.
Warm springs area ~ location, location, location! Walk to the Sun Valley Warm Springs lifts. This home is two blocks away from the Warm Springs lodge and lifts. This is a river front property directly across the Warm Springs River from the Warm Springs ski area parking lot. Ski into the parking lot when you are done, walk across the bridge and you are home. Heck, ski down for a lunch break!
For summer fun you are a block away from the wood river bike trail system. Ride to the Sun Valley Hotel and Resort, downtown Ketchum or all the way to Hailey and back.
This family home has extra amenities: inner tubes, snow shoes, summer bikes, tennis rackets, and a drying room for your ski gear.
This home was completely remodeled in January 2013 with personal attention to detail throughout. The kitchen was enlarged and outfitted with professional/gourmet appliances and all new cabinets and countertops.
All 5-1/2 the bathrooms were completely redone with new showers, heated flooring in some, vanities, faucets and lighting. The hardwood floors in the entry, dining and kitchen were refinished and new carpet installed throughout the rest of the house. New door hardware and lighting throughout the house added the final touch. Also the mahogany deck, that spans the width of the house, with a hot tub off the den, was restored to it’s original glory.
A large wood burning river rock fireplace is the main gathering spot in the sunken living room. (Your wood is supplied) There are 2 more fireplaces, one in the den and another upstairs in the master suite.
The fully supplied, newly remodeled large kitchen with island stools and top of the line appliances looks over the dining and living room with a views across the warm springs river. The living room has a view across the river and up Bald Mountain with unobstructed views of the Greyhawk ski runs.
Upstairs is the master suite and the “second” master. The master suite has its own fireplace and deck overlooking the Warm Springs River. It has a king sized bed, a huge master bath with a heated floor, accommodating a large shower with 3 heads (2 regular and a overhead rain head) and soaking tub. Abundant walk-in closet space.
The “second” upstairs master also as a king sized bed with a bath with a shower only. Walk-in closet also.
There is another bedroom off the main hall with 2 full size beds. The 4th bedroom is upstairs with a private stairway and its own balcony and has 2 twin beds. The bathroom has a shower and the floor is heated.
The laundry room is just off the main living area in the hall next to the 1/2 guest bath. The house has a heated two car garage with a man door out the back to get you to the lifts and back faster.
Hey skiers! This place has a drying room with enough room to dry 6-8 pairs of boots with all your gear. Start every morning off with warm dry boots and gloves!
After a fun day of skiing, hiking, snowshoeing, riding (road or mountain), fishing or any of the hundreds of activities you can participate in and around the valley, soak in the outdoor hot tub with one of the best views of the ski hill in Sun Valley. Lay in the tub and watch the hill close down and the grooming start. Watch the light fade, the moon rise and the stars come out over baldy. One of the most peaceful places you will find, especially if you want to get up and have an early morning soak.

About R&L Management
Our family is proud to offer our home for your 'vacation to remember'. Every time we come here we are reminded how beautiful this valley is. You truly do get into 'Sun Valley Time' here.
R&L Management purchased this House in 1998
Why R&L Management chose Ketchum
This place is everything you could want to get away. It is close enough to town for shopping and restaurants, but far enough away to that you feel you are up in the mountains, away from everyone.

Wifi with FULL coverage throughout the house. The music system is a state of the art wireless SONOS sound system with speakers in every bedroom and the living room.

Wonderful House and Location
The Lunga House was more than we expected. The accommodations were outstanding. It was a short walk to the Warm Springs Lift and the Sun Valley Blue Line Bus to go to downtown Ketchum. This house is highly recommended.
Thanks for taking time to do the review! You are right, we don't mention how easy it is to get around in Ketchum and Sun Valley. If you decide to ski down the River Run side, it is very easy to get back to the house via the bus system. It drops you at the lodge, two/three blocks from the house. Done it many times. In fact, you don't need a car much, once you arrive. It is easy to have a large group at the house and everyone go their own way at their own pace, in to town or back. There are good walks from the house too. Head out to Warm Springs road and walk to Penny Lake. Thats a nice one. Or just wander around the Warm Springs area and explore.
Hope the skiing was everything you wanted. The snow making on this mountain is incredible. Eventually people will figure out you are guaranteed a lot of vertical here, even on bad snow years!
It's all Here!
This was the complete package, including an incredibly responsive property manager.
Every amenity was available -- great cooking equip., spices, functioning ice maker, back home speed/capacity'd WiFi, great stereo system; all the things that are typically advertised but frequently - to my experience - somehow fall short on arrival.
Bringing the family back next year -- thanx Lindi!
Thanks for the glowing review. We are glad you noticed that we care about how everything works at the house. We use the place ourselves frequently and can’t stand it if those little issues with technology, lighting and kitchen items are not working properly. We do try to add more and more appliances by request from visitors. Like additional coffee makers so you can make multiple pots in the morning. (Maybe a decaf brewed up?) Plenty of coffee cups and wine glasses! Sharp knives etc… Humidifiers in the bedrooms. Bottom line we just want to make the place nicer and nicer as time passes. It makes a difference.
And we agree on your mention of our property managers. They are the best. Shhh! Don’t tell anyone else in the valley! :-)
Glad you are planning on returning. We will watch for your reservation and look forward to welcoming you back to ‘Lunga House”.
Fabulous, family home!
This house went beyond my expectations. We were 3 generations, 10 people ranging in age from 4 months to 63 years and we all had a wonderful time. The home is warm, quiet, comfortable, well designed and has a very well appointed kitchen. You could choose to all be together with the wood fireplace blazing in the living room, or you could break apart with some in the media room, kids playing in bedrooms and others spread out through out the house. Since we cooked many of our meals, the kitchen was everything you could ask for, plus there was adequate seating. By using the table for eight and the adjoining 3 bar stools we could all eat together which was also a plus. We rented in February 2017 for a ski vacation, but the location would also be great for a summer adventure. We would come back in a heart beat! The property managers were also great to work with.
Wow! Thanks for the great review. So glad you loved the place. It sounds like you used it just as we do. Lots of group cooking and eating! I hope the snow was good for your skiing. Our family loves to share this place with others and we really appreciate it when a great group of family and friends get to have a great experience there.
You are correct, summers are wonderful. Usually the summer gets booked up fast because of that. But, the off months of October, November and May, June are so nice also, because you have the town to yourself and you feel what it is like to be a local. It is so quiet and peaceful at those times and the fall colors are fabulous.
Glad you mentioned our property managers. We think they are the best and knowing they are there for you, makes your vacation that much better and worry free. They really care about our home and treat it like it's theirs, and in many ways, it is!
Hopefully, you can come back again. Heck, make it a tradition! We will keep the place in great shape and improve it as we can for you.
Pre-Wedding "Girls" Party!
WOW! What a fabulous home. From the private cul de sac location at the base of the ski mountain, to the well equipped kitchen, the lovely comfortable furnishings, great beds and linens, gorgeous en-suite bathrooms for each of the 4 bedrooms, the cozy fireplace, and the hot tub....everything was perfect for our stay. Plenty of room for gathering but also areas for privacy. Loved that the BRs were in separate areas of the house. The house was immaculate and beautifully maintained, kudos to your property managers and housekeeping staff. Would love to book sometime for my out of town family.
Thanks! I love the fact that you can working in the office while others are watching TV or Hot Tubbing and still be a part of what is going on but still have your own space. Also, if need be, the rooms have enough seating and space to get away from everyone if you want. Separate enough so you can take a nap and not be bothered by the cooking and hub-bub in the rest of the house. Glad you had a great time.
Cozy yet roomy
This rental has enough space for a large group to enjoy time together with living spaces that feel cozy. The bedrooms are spacious with great beds and quality linens, the kitchen is very well appointed and the living spaces and deck make great gathering spaces with enough room and seating for a large group. The property managers are also top-notch and service oriented. This property is great for families and also for a group of couples.
Thanks for your review and mentioning our property managers. They are the best! The house and the experience wouldn't be half of what it is without the quality and care they show in everything they do to make this all work for both our guests and the family!
Girls' night out!
This home is a cozy, yet large and roomy home situated right next to the Warm Springs lift at the base of Bald Mountain. Being right on Warm Springs creek, it has private, fabulous decks along with a delightful kitchen area that is open to the living room. Each bedroom area is large and with its own bathroom, making it a wonderful venue for various members to have their own space. The hot tub was a great place to unwind after our fun night on the town. I highly recommend this getaway home. You will not want to leave this comfortable and well designed and appointed space!
Thanks for your review! Glad "The Girls" had a great time and enjoyed the place! Thanks.
