Condo with Bald Mtn. View , 1 Bedroom, Sofa Bed, 1.25 Bath (Sleeps 2-4), Firepla
This totally remodeled one bedroom condo is the closest complex to Sun Valley's Bald Mountain, River Run Lodge, chairlift and new gondola. The décor is fantastic, warm and comfortable for anyone visiting for an active stay or just a relaxing get-away.
The one bedroom offers a queen bed and adjoining full bath plus another separate sink area. The living area has a wood burning fireplace, a 39' Flat screen TV, Blue Ray DVD, CD, MP3 compatibility, big comfortable chairs and a sofa that turns into a queen-size pull out. Free WIFI and basic cable are included. A private stack-able washer/dryer is in the unit for small loads but we recommended you use the coin operated laundry facility in the complex for larger loads. The condo is exceptional clean, comfortable and well cared for with the large open living/kitchen area well lit with plenty of natural light.
Two sliding glass doors lead to a large deck which overlooks the pool and Bald Mountain. The deck is so, so relaxing. Lay back in the LaFume reclining chairs, sun bathe and have a sip of your favorite drink! There is a nice table with plenty of chairs and a small propane barbeque if you enjoy outdoor summer dining. The deck gate is adjacent to the entrance to the pool area. Bushes off the deck provide just the right amount of privacy from the pool. The complex also offers a large hot tub for relaxing after a long day skiing, biking or hiking.
This condo is adjacent to Sun Valley’s groomed bike/walking/skiing path & the Bigwood River. Within 100’ you can fly fish on the Big Wood, use the bike path and in the summer hike the 3,000 vertical Bald Mountain trail and ride the gondola down for free. The bike path becomes a groomed ski trail in the winter. Sun Valley's Bald Mountain has the new gondola service at River Run. River Run Lodge is right across the bridge which means you can walk or put on your Nordic or downhill skis just outside your door and in less than 5 minutes be at the Lodge or gondola. In the summer Bald Mountain offers 28 single track mountain bike trails.
A free bus stop is just out on the street or you can walk the 3-4 blocks to downtown Ketchum. The location is perfect for not only sporting activities but also for shopping or in-town activities like movies, galleries, groceries and restaurants.
If you are a fisherman, Silver Creek offers world famous flyfishing and is a 30-40 minute drive south of the unit. During the summer there are bike races, foot races and even a high end car race. Throughout the year the area offers both free and inexpensive concerts, art gallery walks, the free Sun Valley Symphony the first two weeks of August, lectures, film festivals, arts and crafts festivals, antique shows, farmer's markets, a jazz festival and the Trailing of the Sheep in October and other diverse cultural events, all within minutes of the condo.
Could the location be any better?

What makes this Condo unique
Sit on the deck with a glass of wine in early evening to watch the light change on Bald Mountain. Check to see if the gondolas are running for a ride up the mountain! Also seated on the deck you can view the variety of bikers, runners, dog-strollers as they wander up and down the adjacent bike path. Close enough to see but not close enough to interrupt your morning. There is nothing better than a cup or coffee and a breakfast on the deck in the morning summer sun. In the summer step off the deck and head through the gate to access the pool for a quick refresher after a hike or bike up the trails available on the mountain. Or if you are a fisherman walk 50 yards across the bike path and you are on the Wood River. You will find excellent rainbow trout fishing and a beautiful river. Handgliders launch off of Baldy and sail down the mountain to land just south of the condo in the Sun Valley parking lot. On a nice day one after another colorful glider casts a shadow on the deck as they pass over up above. You can walk to main street Ketchum in 10 minutes. Evening walks are so pleasant when you wind up in one of Ketchum's many fine restaurants. Leave the car behind!

Excellent Sun Valley Condo
Terrific condo! Well equipped kitchen, comfortable furniture, great location. Nice views from the unit's windows. We enjoyed our week here and would stay here again for sure.
Great Condo Location for Skiing Bald Mountain Runs at Sun Valley
Review of Sun Valley Condo 3-7-18 through 3-12-18
We arrived in the evening so it was dark but did find the complex without any wrong turns. The addresses on the complex buildings aren’t too well lighted, however, but following the provided instructions we were able to locate the unit without much delay. The instructions for access to the unit were clear.
Be careful as the parking lot was icy and did not appear sanded or salted. I almost fell carrying our luggage to / from the car. We were able to park right outside the unit and unload our gear easily though.
The condo itself was clean and spacious. All the appliances worked, and appear fairly new. The Wi-Fi worked as it should. Rooms were clean and well lit. We didn’t use the fireplace because most days the temperature was in the 40’s. We could occasionally hear sounds from the other condos in this building but nothing disturbing so the soundproofing is adequate. The shower was nice with no wait for the hot water. The flat screen TV has a great picture though not a lot of channels are included. However, there is an attached DVD player though we didn’t use it. Also, we enjoyed the hot tube every day after skiing. It was clean and not too hot.
The location of the unit is excellent. We liked that we could walk out the door take a left out parking lot, take the short walk on the bike trail to the River Run Plaza, River Run Lift (#1) and Roundhouse Gondola lift (#2). In the morning we were on the lift in less than 10 minutes without having to drive anywhere. Storing skis and poles ($4 overnight for storage) at the River Run Plaza saved from lugging them back to the condo so is very convenient. We had no issues with the Condo during our stay and so highly recommend this unit if you want to ski Bald Mountain at Sun Valley.
Thank you for the kind review. I believe that I should put some of your detail into our condo description!
The best to you,
Great location and layout!
We really enjoyed our proximity to the chair and the clean and quiet condo! Very cozy and well stocked kitchen. Would definitely return. Best for 2 people.
awesome proximity to ski run!!
We loved the condo we stayed in, owned by Lynn Davies. It was very spacious and updated nicely. And very very clean! The kitchen had everything we needed plus much more and there was an abundance of towels, linen, toilet paper, cleaning supplies! Thank you!!
The only negative things we experienced was 1). not being able to connect to wifi. After two days we stopped trying to connect. But hey, that wasn't even an issue because there was really no reason to be on it anyway! 2) we wished there was better (much better) lighting on the outside of the condo complex where we were staying. It was very difficult to find this bldg in the dark when we arrived. But a call to Lynne solved this location issue. Thanks Lynne!
We enjoyed our stay at the condo and we hope to go back to the SunValley area again.
Thanks Lynne and husband, you were always available to answer our questions, provide needed direction service, as well as tell us best places to eat! Thank you!
And the property is an easy walk to the ski lift and runs. My husband really enjoyed and appreciated that feature!
Hope to rent your condo again! Very nice!
Cozy, clean, and great location
The condo is perfect in that it is cozy, clean, welcoming, and warm. The bed is comfortable after days of walking and skiing. The amenities are just right: WIFI access, Smart TV with access to Netflix, large kitchen table with high comfortable chairs, plenty of glassware and flatware. There are plenty of towels. There is a washer dryer in the unit that is so convenient for doing small loads of laundry. The location cannot be beat! If you are a skier it is super close to the lift (1/4 mile) and you can also walk to the market on Main Street.
If we come back to Sun Valley we would like to stay here again.
Great place and helpful owner
The instructions for getting to and into the condo were very good. When we had questions the owner was very prompt and helpful in her responses. Everything about the condo is as described on VRBO. It was clean, spacious and updated. The cow painting was fun.
We were there to ski and although we could have walked from the condo to the River Run lift (you can see the gondola from the condo) we chose to drive. We are a little older and dropping one person off with all the skis was easy. Sun Valley has wagons to transport your gear and free lockers you can use for shoes, etc.
The condo is close to town and you could walk, but again we chose to drive. Mainly because there was so much snow, the roads were a little narrower than usual and we felt safer driving. There is plenty of parking in town and the restaurants we tried were great.
If we go to Sun Valley again, we will definitely try to book this condo.
You can get away without having a car if you are at the condo on a ski vacation. The mountain is very close and if you don't mind a 10 minute walk to the downtown area you can access the groceries stores if you eat in or many excellent restaurants if you want to eat out.
