Great place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

Loft was beautiful, comfortable and welcoming! The deck was a great place to sit and enjoy the view and I loved all the big windows everywhere! Walk to town or the river was quick and easy. If you have kids, there is also a great park (Atkinson Park) that was just 10 minute walk down the bike path. Hilary and Kirk were great hosts, welcoming and easily available!

Beautiful apartment in central location

  • 5 of 5

Kirk's apartment is so beautiful! Top quality finish out, beautiful views and comfortable beds are rounded out by his gallery photographs everywhere! He's a talented photographer and gracious host. He even stopped in before we arrived to turn on the heat. I would definitely stay here again!

Absolutely fantastic-- I loved it!

  • 5 of 5

We loved Kirk’s apartment. It was incredibly clean, well-stocked, and comfortable. The photos of the apartment on the site are lovely, but it's actually even more impressive in person-- really high ceilings, huge windows that let in tons of light, and very spacious. Kirk was also very responsive and a great host. I felt as comfortable as I do in my own home, which is rare for me in a vacation rental. I also slept as well as I do in my own bed. You can’t go wrong—amenities within walking distance (check out the Bigwood Bakery down the street), really comfortable beds and linens (the best pillows!), and gorgeous photographs on every wall, not to mention a sunny patio. The apartment is also very quiet. I could probably go on for a while; I really, really loved my time here, and I can't think of anything I would change. I would stay here again in a heartbeat!

See Picturesque Sun Valley While Staying in a Fantastic Photo Gallery

  • 5 of 5

Photographer Kirk Anderson's fantastic works adorn all the walls of this great, and well furnished loft that is less than a 15-minute walk to the center of Ketchum. There's a wonderful, large balcony outside the kitchen/living room from which to enjoy meals, drinks or just the stars at night! The furnishings throughout and the kitchen appliances are great. We've stayed there twice in the past 13 months, and it will be our first choice for our next trip to Sun Valley. Hosts Kirk and Hillary couldn't be any nicer or more accommodating!
