Property description

Welcome and thanks for considering my condo as your vacation rental. This condo is a quiet, very well maintained, SUPER clean property within walking distance to town and River Run lifts. You can also jump on the free city shuttle that stops close to your front door to head over to Baldy or to the village of Sun Valley. The master bed has a comfortable wool topper and the twins are pillow tops. The master closet is a huge walk in dressing room so other guest can sleep in. The vanity in the master has a dimmer for the same reason. The many ceiling fans make this condo extra comfortable no matter what the season. There is also a portable AC unit in the living room. There is a full setting of super cute dishes for 8. The kitchen is well equipped with everything you need for a holiday dinner right down to pie plates and a pan large enough for that turkey. Stemless wine glasses, and a good selection of pots and pans. I have put in the things I wish I had when I use a rental. Mine is above and beyond!

It's a reverse floor plan so you can drop your bags in the bedroom on the main floor. No lugging bags up to loft sleeping areas. Ugh!

The living and dining areas are upstairs with an open floor plan with two ceiling fans. There is a pellet stove for those cold winter nights that gives the living space a cozy glow if you chose to fire it up. The property has been newly remodeled and reflects a comfortable atmosphere of kicking back and relaxing.

The master bedroom, bath and vanity area welcomes you with beautiful tile floors that are heated in winter and a super comfortable king size bed. It's one of the few properties in this price range with underground parking; a huge plus when you wake up to 10” of new powder! It's also great to have a garage for hot summer days and protects things stored in the car.

The main bedroom has two pillow top twin beds with a bath directly across the tile hallway.

It's close to city center so you can walk into town for all it has to offer. The mountaintop can be seen from the living room balcony and master bedroom helping you with goggle selection for the day. There is a large flat screen TV in the living area as well as a wall mounted TV in the master. In addition, it's furnished with comfortable couch, love seat, easy chair and ottoman. Mission Oak style tables and entertainment center offer a lodge look at this mountain get away. All wood is glass topped for carefree drinking and dining!

The kitchen is well-designed including, dishwasher, icemaker, pots and pans, electric tea pot, coffee pot, microwave and more. The dining table seats six with a glass top for carefree entertaining. There is service for eight.

For those with sensitive skin, it's equipped with a water softener that effects all water except the kitchen sink for drinking. EVERYTHING is in perfect working order, super clean and maintained at high standards. Please contact me with all of your questions and I look forward to having you as my guests. Please read the FIVE STAR reviews and thanks for taking a look.

Car: Recommended

Summer in Sun Valley is magical! The summer free symphony, summer concert series and wine auction are just a few of the happening things in the valley. The Sun Valley Lodge is sporting a new look with a complete renovations inside with the addition of a Spa building. It's stunning! Redfish Lake is only an hour's drive north for boating, water skiing, kayaking, paddle boats, canoes, biking, hiking, and camping. The condo is equipped with coolers, ice packs, and low back chairs for music events. The bike path is close and there are two Schwinn Cruisers to enjoy the ride in style.

There is a YMCA within walking and biking distance.

In Winter, Sun Valley offers World Class skiing. Not just downhill skiing on Baldy, but miles of skate skiing trails on the Harriman Trail and north of Ketchum at Galena Summit. Galena Lodge offers full moon snowshoe walks that include dinners. The Sun Valley Lodge is a historic place full of photographs of movie stars and Olympian skaters spending time there. It's absolutely stunning with a new added day spa building. Don't miss it. The ice rink is year round.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1993

About the owner: I moved to Idaho from Ohio to go skiing in 1977 and never went back. After being a licensed barber and a Yellowstone Park employee, I became a certified personal trainer and a licensed practical nurse. Over-achiever right? I was fortunate enough to buy my condo in 1993 using it first as just a vacation home, then living full time in it from 2009-2014. I have enjoyed the ski seasons here like no other place, but I have now moved to Boise, ID. I enjoy the bigger city on a full-time basis and my condo as my vacation home again. It also keeps me more appreciative of what an amazingly beautiful place Sun Valley is. Truly breathtaking!

Why the Owner Chose Ketchum, ID, USA:
I purchased this because it was a great value for the amount of square footage, but also in town, which was my biggest deciding factor. I wanted to be able to walk to River Run Lodge for Après ski afternoons, Ketchum Alive (summer music event), and bike to get my groceries. I can also walk or bike to do hikes, hit the bike path, (for skate skiing too), attend summer symphonies, party or eat uptown Ketchum. It's like living in the 50's! Everything is close. I Love that! Main Street Market is also a walk away with a most amazing deli!

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
I have completely remodeled every inch of my vacation home to make it comfortable and super user-friendly. Softened water, celling fans, warm tile floors, (cool in summer), pellet stove is fabulous and there is an efficient portable room air conditioner in the living room for the few weeks it might get used in summer. It all makes for a comfy stay. The Master Bedroom has a large walk-in closet with plenty of room for your things, but also allows a place to dress while someone sleeps in. There is a hassle-free pull down ironing board in the closet--always ready to go yet out of the way. The main bedroom has two twin pillow-top beds on rollers to easily push together. The sliding closet doors are mirrored and there is also a full length mirror in the master bedroom and main bath. Vanities are well lit for make up application. Mood lighting in the well appointed kitchen above cabinets is great for romantic dinners. Free city bus stops close in front of the condo to head to town or Sun Valley Village. It's SUPER clean, great in town location, an open kitchen, comfortable beds, nice kitchen items, and airy with portable room AC upstairs and ceiling fans. Provided on check in is: initial dish soap and new sponge, dishwashing detergent, laundry detergent, hand soap, toilet paper and paper towel. It's nice to have these things when you fly in, however, it's not provided throughout the stay.
