About the property

READ MY REVIEWS! 2 bdrm, 2.5 bath, walk to town and gondola

Welcome and thanks for considering my River Run 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. Breakfast bar seats two with dining for six at table. The master bed has a comfortable mattress 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. Summer there is 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 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 completely remodeled and reflects a comfortable Sun Valley 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 heated 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. Breakfast bar seats two. The dining table seats six, (includes bar chairs), 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.

About Diane Calevro

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!

Diane Calevro purchased this condo in 1993

Why Diane Calevro chose Ketchum

I purchased this because it was 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! The market is also a walk away with a most amazing deli!

What makes this condo unique

I have completely remodeled every inch of this 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, dishwasher 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.

Beautiful, comfortable, spacious condo close to everything

  • 5 of 5

I LOVED staying here. We came to Ketchum to ski, but the weather did not cooperate. Even so, we had a fabulous time largely due to this fabulous condo. The condo is stylishly decorated with cool knick knacks and stylish rustic decorations. There are a lot of touches to remind the visitor of the location such as vintage skis and snowboards on the wall and cute mountain decor.

The beds and living room furniture are all very comfortable. I was able to immediately relax and get a good night's sleep.The kitchen is especially well-equipped - you will want for nothing.

Owner's Response: Dear Anne, I am thrilled to hear how much you enjoyed your stay. Especially so to know you were comfortable no matter where you were: sleeping or hanging out in the living room. I do strive to be sure my guests have what they need. I hope you'll give Sun Valley another try. The weather you had was so not the norm. I look forward to having you back! Best to you, Diane

Condo was great! Cozy and comfortable. Very nicely decorated. Had everything we needed. Close to mt

  • 4 of 5

Our only disappointment was that the condo did not have a great view of the mountains. There is a peekaboo view from one of the living room couches, but we all wanted more. The condo is so nicely decorated. We loved the pellet stove in the living room and the electric fireplace in the master suite. The master suite was large, with a huge walk in closet, sink in one corner of the room and shower and toilet in a separate but adjoining room. Kitchen was well laid out and had everything one needed on vacation. It was nice that there were filters and coffee in the cupboards, plus assorted salt, pepper and spices. Couches were oh so comfortable, we could’ve spent the night sleeping on them. Really enjoyed our stay. Great to have use of the ski locker in the underground garage, which was also great for our car. An easy walk to town. So close to the bike path. We did drive to the River Run ski area. Just a little to far for us to walk with all our ski stuff. Very, very nice condo. Thank you.

Owner's Response: Hey Rob, I am happy to know you enjoyed the condo except for the “no view,” and would like to speak to that for those reading this, not to rebuke you Rob. I sincerely thank you for all the kind words and appreciate your time in writing it all down. I am very careful in my description NOT to tout a mountain view. Under the Property Location tab I have checked “Mountain View” described as such: “Baldy can be seen from the condo's deck, living room and master bedroom. It's not a view that is in your face from inside, but great to see the weather on the mountaintop for goggle selection.” When I lived there I absolutely LOVED being able to simply look out a window to see the mountain and know what lense to put in my gogs, or if it was socked in and not worth going up. I have gotten dinged on “no view” a few times so felt the need to mention: I don’t claim to have one. A view in Sun Valley is extremely expensive. If I had an astonishing view the rent would have surely matched it! I enjoy being able to provide a clean, affordable, well supplied VRBO in West Ketchum. All in all sounds like you felt my vacation home delivered. Thanks for the great input Rob! Diane

Perfect condo for our family vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Trail Creek West for one week while visiting family in Ketchum, and we loved every minute! The condo was beautiful, spacious, and very clean. I did a fair amount of cooking and baking during our stay and I was able to find all of the utensils/pots & pans that I needed. The living room was a comfortable place to relax in the evening after a busy day of exploring the area. The location was perfect: close to downtown shopping, restaurants, grocery stores, and ski lifts. The parking garage was a huge plus!

Owner's Response: Hi Tammy, I am thrilled to hear the condo met all of your needs. Garages in Ketchum are hard to find which makes me so grateful to have one to offer vacationers. You took such great care of everything. Thank you and hope to see you again one day. Diane

Perfect family stay

  • 5 of 5

This was a perfect condo for our family of 4! We stayed here for the final few days of our road trip and everyone appreciated how roomy the condo is. The master suite is huge, and felt like it's own separate retreat which was so nice to be able to relax in after hours of driving! The condo is beautifully updated and decorated throughout, with everything we needed for a comfortable stay. The location was perfect, quiet yet easy to bike or walk into town without needing to drive. It was also a very short walk to Mt. Baldy, which had some great trails for hiking and would be amazing to ski in the winter.

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.

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 shops in town to rent bikes. There is a YMCA within walking and biking distance.
