Sporting a hunting lodge aesthetic near the ski slopes at Mt. Baldy, this four-bedroom Ketchum vacation rental offers beautiful mountain views, an outdoor hot tub, and a cozy space you will love coming back to after a long day of adventures.
You will love how close this home is to just about everything! The winter season is packed with Sun Valley skiing fun at both close by Mt. Baldy and Dollar Mountain (about a 10 minute drive away). With downhill and cross-country skiing to choose from, winter sports lovers will feel right at home here. There's even miles of snowshoeing trails to explore, as well as backcountry access, and heli-skiing.
The detail in this home truly embraces the feeling of the great outdoors, from the beautiful wood paneling throughout to the grizzly bear in the dining room! A sunken living room contains comfortable furniture for relaxing, plush carpeting and a gallery of animal heads along the walls. Watch a DVD on the TV or just scroll through cable channels until you find something entertaining. A wood stove provides both heat and ambiance while you sit back with a mug of hot cocoa and watch the snow fall down outside.
Right off the living room, a nice elevated deck has an outdoor hot tub, a table, chairs, a gas grill, and a fire pit. From here, you'll enjoy great views of the runs on Mt Baldy while soaking in the hot tub, roasting marshmallows after dinner around the firepit, or just relaxing with a late afternoon hot buttered rum.
A few steps up will take you to the dining room and kitchen areas, where you'll find all the appliances you'll need for healthy, delicious vacation meals, as well as a nice place to enjoy sitting down together for meals. In addition to all the gadgets you'd expect, you'll also have a slow cooker, a waffle maker, and even an espresso machine! Imagine coming back after a long day on the slopes to the smells of a slow cooked lamb and rosemary stew wafting through the townhome.
When it's time to retire for the evening, you'll find all of the bedrooms upstairs. The master has a queen bed, a southwestern theme, TV, wood burning fireplace, and its own balcony. An attached bathroom boasts double sinks and a jetted tub.
In the other three bedrooms, there's a combination of one other queen sized bed and two double beds. All bedrooms have lovely ski views, warm snuggly bedding, decorative touches, and baseboard heaters with a thermostat in every room. This home will comfortably sleep up to eight guests, including one dog for a nightly pet fee. Other amenities include a washer and dryer for guest use, a single car garage, and skylights. You will be happy to know that this home also offers wi-fi, so you'll be able to stay in touch with family and friends back home
While this is the perfect setting for a ski getaway with friends and family, there's also a lot to do in Ketchum in the warmer months! Bring your mountain bikes and ride down Dollar Mountain, go fly fishing, or spend the day hiking through tall aspen trees. In the downtown area, about two miles from the townhome, you'll have galleries to browse, restaurants to try, and museums to wander. After a full day in town, stop in the Pioneer Saloon for prime rib, steaks and yes, even Idaho baked potatoes. Then return to to your cozy townhome for s'mores out on the balcony and lively conversation about what to do the next day.
Year-round, Ketchum is an ideal destination for outdoor enthusiasts, as well as anyone looking to get away and relax in the breathtaking Idaho mountains. This townhome is a great home base for exploring all that the Ketchum and Sun Valley area has to offer!
