About Betty Swanson

Born in Brasil, of Danish decent, Sten grew up in Tehran, Iran, a city at 6,000 feet... just like Sun Valley. In 1980, after a short-lived career in Portland, Oregon, he moved to Sun Valley and has been a business owner and avid skier ever since. His 35 year history in Sun Valley has made him a true local.

Betty Swanson purchased this house in 2006

Why Betty Swanson chose Ketchum

This property creates the quintessential Sun Valley getaway! It is in a fantastic location in a quiet neighborhood. The outdoor fireplace creates a cozy gathering place beneath beautiful aspen trees.

What makes this house unique

With blood sweat and tears, and a lot of help from his friends, Sten transformed this log cabin into a Scandinavian contemporary gem. It is a perfect mix of contemporary and mountain rustic. With lots of outdoor areas to relax and enjoy the solitude and starry nights.

a gem in Warm Springs

  • 4 of 5

Betty made our first experience with VRBO fabulous. She accommodated our late arrival with exterior lights turned on and warm internal temps with the gas fireplace on. Great first impression. Decor is very trendy and comfortable for the 5 adults. You do need to be part mountain goat for the stairs to the master suite. Stay was too short and would be a great summer spot on the large exterior deck with a gas fir pit.

We spent about 10 nights her in January 2018. We loved it. The Cabin is wonderful inside and out. The house and kitchen have everything you need. The owner Betty could not be nicer to work with. She is very responsive to any questions or needs. We will be back!!

Perfect get away for family of 4

  • 5 of 5

This is quintessential Sun Valley. Space was perfect for a grown family of 4. great lighting throughout and it just felt so cozy that we never really wanted to leave. As soon as we did leave we just wanted to get back. Betty, the owner, was first rate and was super helpful if and when we needed anything. the 2 car garage was useful. the shower was amazing, a lot of nice touches throughout the place. We will be going again.

First of all, WOW, this house is fabulous. Its in a very quiet neighborhood in Warm Springs, has ample parking and a 2 car garage. The walkway to the door is framed by antlers and a warm rustic charm, the decks provide great space and most of all seating. The house is well appointed from the kitchen to the bathrooms and very well thought out for guests. We had 5 people staying at the house and were not cramped for space, a nice big screen TV and satellite, a modern kitchen with everything you need. I would highly recommend this house for families and also couples.

Great family stay in Sun Valley

  • 5 of 5

My family and I had a great time. The house has a nice modern with a rustic feel look. My husband and I especially enjoyed evenings out on the deck by the fire pit. The owners were friendly and very prompt in answering any questions we would have. I highly recommend it.
