About Theresa

Our family lives in Southern Oregon. Any time we get the opportunity, we are in the great outdoors, searching for adventure. We found Ketchum, Idaho on vacation one year and fell in love with all it had to offer. We knew that we had to find a way to make this a frequent vacation destination for our family.

Theresa purchased this condo in 2012

Why Theresa chose Ketchum

We chose this property because of its central location. Both the mountain (Mt. Baldy) and downtown, are walking distance from this location. In the winter, we can get up in the morning and ski to the lifts from our condo. We can walk to ice skating or go nordic skiing right out the front door. When we need something from town or we just want to go to one of the great local restaurants, we don't have to get in our car.

In the summer, the ski trail is the bike path. The mountain bike trail system is extensive. Road biking is also a common theme in the area. The Big Wood River is only a couple of blocks away if fly fishing is your desire.

Quiet and convenient

  • 5 of 5

This place was actually nicer than it looked in the pictures, and was very well provisioned.

It is a bit of a walk for people who have trouble walking, but we all managed to walk to dinner and avoid the chaos of parking in Ketchum. Since this is a bit outside of town, it was also VERY quiet, despite having all the units full. Some rowdy party at the pool, but they were respectful of us elders and we did not hear anyone at night. Also, since a bit outside of town, the night sky was fabulous.

Kitchen has good set of tools, pans, dishes & also oils, etc left from previous visitors which was very convenient. So we left our contribution also.

Washer/ Dryer was extremely useful since Idaho was really dusty! And there was abundant closet space and hangers, which we sometimes do not find.

Much better than we expected!

Great location, nicely renovated unit, on the small side.

  • 4 of 5

The location of this unit is great, it is in an older condo complex right on the bike trail, within easy walking distance to River Run Lodge and the river. The unit is very nicely renovated. The pool was pleasant with a great view of Baldy. Overall I would give the rental good marks. The downside is that this is an older complex therefore the unit is less spacious than some more recent developments. The upstairs bedroom was a little cozy for two adult friends, it would be more comfortable for kids or a couple. And I was disappointed that the hot tub was not next to the pool. We enjoyed sitting on the deck listening to the concert at River Run and really enjoyed being right on the bike trail. It was great to walk to River Run and rent bikes, ride the gondola up the mountain and have all of those amenities so close by.

Loved the Condo and Location

  • 5 of 5

Communication was excellent. Our stay was 12 days. The condo was very comfortable for the length of our stay. We did most of our own cooking and kitchen was stocked with everything we needed. (Cookware was exceptional) The grill added a nice variety to our meals. The the pool and bike trail was an added bonus. This is the 4th property we have rented in Sun Valley this year and by far the most comfotable.

Apartment was good. No nonsense place.

  • 4 of 5

We stayed 8 nights and did not have anyone come to clean the place. Maybe there could be mid point cleaning service. Other than that all was well. Bathrooms were compact. Sunny deck was great.

Sun Valley Ski Vacation

  • 4 of 5

The Condo was very comfortable. Nicely appointed and kitchen was well equipped. The fireplace kept the temperature very comfortable day and night. The cable TV package was very limited if you are interested in watching a variety of channels. Should be more towels bathrooms and kitchen. It is the closest walk to River Run along the flat trail, which we enjoyed going to a from skiing.

Comfortable cosy condo close to everything

  • 5 of 5

The condo was very comfortable, cozy and clean. It is very close to the ski lifts and to town. It was nice to be able to walk anywhere we wanted to go. The kitchen was very well equipped in terms of pots, pans etc., the bed was comfortable and the place heated up and cooled down efficiently. I would have liked the owners to be a little more generous in terms of some items - such as shampoo and conditioner (just 2 tiny hotel bottles of 'conditioning shampoo' were provided), toilet paper, and some kitchen basics - salt, pepper, good coffee, vinegar (there was some oil!), things like that. However, these are minor concerns and all in all I would highly recommend this condo.

Ketchum Idaho has been coined, Nordic Town USA. Thanks to over 200 kilometers of groomed trails throughout the area. It truly has become a nordic destination for cross country skiers and all winter enthusiasts. Every year, the Sun Valley Nordic Festival attracts hundreds of skiers to participate in a myriad of events leading up to the Boulder Mountain Tour. If cross country skiing is not your thing, the alpine scene is top notch. Mt Baldy offers 3400 vertical feet over 2054 skiable acres. Dollar mountain has a multitude of terrain parks and features for the free style skier. You will NOT be bored.

Just down the street from the condo is a public ice rink that is free to all that will come. They even have all the gear you will need to enjoy some time on the ice. This includes skates (hockey and figure), hockey sticks, helmets and pucks. Most days, you can join in a pick-up game to test your hockey skills.

Throughout the spring and summer, there are out door venues throughout the valley to enjoy. There is often music at the local amphitheater which attracts several big name artists throughout the season. There are endless hiking trails for all skill sets and fitness levels. Our family is always finding a new lake to hike into along one of the many mountain ranges that surround this beautiful valley.

If fishing is your passion, then you already are likely aware of the many opportunities that lie in this part of the Northwest. If not, there are several fly fishing and tackle stores in town to help guide you to the fishing destinations that you are looking for in this area.

Sun Valley has been the location of several national championship mountain bike venues in the last couple of years. This is a tribute to the incredible quality of trails that exist here and around the area. I am always so amazed at the accessibility of the mountainous terrain via trail system. You can spend weeks in the saddle and never roll over the same ground.

The Christmas and New Year holiday season in Ketchum and Sun Valley is something special. We have spent two Christmas vacations here in the last 3 years. The town is so beautifully adorned with Christmas lights and there are some really fun events to enjoy. There is always a huge skating performance at Sun Valley Resort, followed by all of the ski patrollers skiing down Dollar Mountain, carrying torches as they go. This creates a long ribbon of red fire sweeping down the slope. Amazing!! This is then followed by an incredible fireworks display over the top of the mountain as a finale to the show. It is quite an evening.
