About Jan Sommer

Born in Ontario,Canada, lived in California for 20 yrs, but retired to sunny Sun Valley where the garden is beautiful and the people friendly. I love the yoga, hiking, river boating, variety of cultural experiences to be had here.

Jan Sommer purchased this house in 2012

Why Jan Sommer chose Hailey

I looked for 3 years before I choose to retire to this spacious airy house. The light in the house is very special. I can watch the stars from the decks, see the moon from my bed, and have bird feeders all around the house. Sun pours through the many windows winter and summer. My garden I laughingly call Tuscany in Idaho, for the colours and flowers. It even has an olive tree! There have been many the garden parties here, with everything you need for an outdoor dining experience.

What makes this house unique

Walking up to the front door along the stone path, through flowers and looking in at the cherry wood floors made me fall for this house. Then the high ceilings and 7 ft doorways give this house scale and interior colors lift my spirits. There's a beautiful stone fireplace in the center of the open living-kitchen area. Everyone loves coming here.. it has a lovely spirit.

A Real Home in Hailey

  • 5 of 5

As soon as you walk through the door you are "at home". Everything about this house was just so comfortable. We had a lovely week here. Meals outside in the garden were a great treat. They were easy to organise as there is very good access between kitchen and garden. The house is in a quiet neighbourhood but is only a short walk from the main shopping area of Hailey. Jan is very lucky in having some lovely neighbours who helped make our week extra special.

Worth a repeat!

  • 5 of 5

For the second ear in a row, I was able to enjoy this cozy home for Christmas week. It was such a success last year and this year was no exception. Jan was there to greet me and to answer any questions I had. This year I chose to sleep downstairs in another very comfy bed, just like the one upstairs. There was a handy bath a few steps away and the gorgeous kitchen and the wonderful living area was he perfect place to be in the mornings and evenings after wonderful days out skiing. Thank you, Jan, for allowing me to stay yet again in your lovely home! Ginny

Wonderful, cozy home

  • 5 of 5

I spent a week in this home over Christmas. It was perfect. Super clean. I enjoyed the cozy master upstairs, great living room down, big very well equipped kitchen/dining room also on the first floor. There was another bedroom and an office like room which I did not use as there was only one person. The house was very close to Hailey center. I was impressed that every time it snowed, the plow person arrived promptly and did a great job. The owner let me park my car in the garage which allowed me direct access into the house….a perfect arrangement in the winter! It was immediately apparent that the owner really cared for her property. She toured me through upon my arrival and was available to answer any questions. I would definitely stay there again! Ginny
