Spacious, well appointed and great location!

  • 5 of 5

It lived up to its advertisement. The steak was as good as the sizzle. Great having 3 bathrooms. Nice downstairs. Kitchen had everything! The kitchen was nicely stocked with utensils and cooking pans. Big nice fridge and freezer with a very nice hot tub that can handle 8. Our host, Bob, was attentive and helpful. Super friendly. We felt like real guests!

Great location for skiing

  • 4 of 5

Great location for skiing. About a block to the free town shuttle stop and then a two minute ride to the Warm Springs Base. About 10 minutes on the shuttle in the opposite direction into town for dinners. Exactly what we were looking for. Nice accommodations for our group of six unrelated adults. The bunk room does not have a closet, dresser, or any space for storage, but we managed without it. Great views of the slopes from the living area and a nice hot tub which we used every day. Bob was very responsive to our questions and requests.

Owner's Response: Claire and her group were very nice and accommodating to work with along with being easy to communicate with before and during their stay. They took care of my home like it was their own and were nice enough to do lots of extra things like stripping the beds for the cleaning lady's. I totally enjoyed having them as my guests and would enjoy having them return in the future. Thank you for being outstanding & caring renters!

All we needed and more!

  • 5 of 5

We just returned home from a ski trip to Ketchum. Besides having an incredible time skiing, our rental on Warm Springs was great. It was the prefect place to set us up for a fun and accessible time to all SV amenities for the week. Our group consisted of 2 adults and 4 teenagers. The home had plenty of room for the family to spread out for some alone time, but a great kitchen and dining area for gathering, cooking, and spending time together. The house is well-stocked for cooking meals, plenty of bathrooms and bedrooms for the family, and two TV areas for relaxing on the couches. The washer and dryer were a huge help with all the kids and our activities. There is also a hot tub outside and a basketball hoop. The house is also located on the KART bus line, which is free, and takes you either to the lifts at Warm Springs or into town. All in all, a great home and location. Enjoy your time here!

Lovely Warm Springs home made for a great Sun Valley stay

  • 5 of 5

This home is in the Warm Springs area, about .5 miles to the base lodge and slopes. We drove in each day simply due to having skis and boots to carry but we could have walked it or waited for the free shuttle. There was ample parking. The home itself was roomy, comfortable, had a fully equipped kitchen, the TVs were great for watching a bit of NCAA basketball. The kitchen was fully stocked although we didn't use it for much more than breakfasts and afternoon snacks. The hot tub out back worked perfectly for apres ski. It is just a mile or two into Ketchum for night life. A wonderful place that comes highly recommended.

Great location, cozy house!

  • 5 of 5

A beautiful, comfy home conveniently located just minutes from the base of Warm Springs and the town of Ketchum. The living room window looks directly out on to the ski hill. We found the hot tub and fireplace to be nice amenities during the winter. A perfect rental for a family of 6 or up to 3 couples.
