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 Sun Valley Area

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 wonderful retreat ideally situated, quiet, and immensely comfortable.

  • 5 of 5

My family and I really enjoyed this home. Wonderfully appointed throughout especially the kitchen. It is every bit the home in the pictures and then some. The location is quiet with good privacy. Easy quick drive to Warm Springs lodge even in ski boots. Having a full garage was wonderful for our snowy winter visit and easily fit my Yukon. The only thing I would add this this home is a hot tub on the wonderful expansive deck. Highly recommended home. The only warning I would give is for any tall renters there are two low clearances - stairway to the upstairs master, and leading into the kitchen from the main living area. Not a problem for me at 5'8" but you 6 footers may want to leave on a night light! The house was warm and ready when we arrived and the decks were shoveled of snow daily. Kudos to Management!

The perfect getaway

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay - a nice escape. Great kitchen stocked with everything you need! Plenty of space yet cozy enough to hunker down and enjoy. Close to town and great skiing. Owners had the walks, deck and driveway always shoveled and we appreciated the garage. Mother Nature was a bit wild but we were perfectly content. Thanks for letting us stay - we will be back!

Little gem!

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely week utilizing both the main house and first house for our family. It was perfect for us. There were plenty of dishes and utensils as well as spices and other staples available. The place is charming. We recommend it highly. Thank you!

Serenity says it all!

  • 5 of 5

The name of this beautiful house says it all. Serenity. I rented this house for some dear friends of ours. They were traveling into the Sun Valley Area to not only experience all that our area has to offer, (outdoor adventure), but also to spend quality time together and rest. They have made wonderful memories as they spent many evenings on the back patio by the fire pit sharing with one another or sometimes just being still and enjoying the beauty of creation. The accommodations are over the top. It is absolutely beautiful. The property manager, Betty, is also a wonderful person to work with. You will not be disappointed in choosing this property!

Simply charming

  • 5 of 5

We loved this rustic-on-the-outside, modern-on-the-inside house! It was very comfortable for our group, and the 1 BR studio worked well for my daughter and her bridesmaids to get ready on the big day. The yard and deck were perfect for gathering with a glass of wine or hosting a small brunch. Betty is an attentive and easy to deal with host. Overall a great experience! We'll definitely come back.
