At this beautiful, view-filled four bedroom Sun Valley vacation home, you'll awake to the gorgeous scenery of Mt. Baldy every morning! In the winter, you're just two miles away from skiing at either Mt. Baldy or Dollar Mountain. And in summer, there's amazing hiking through the mountainside right out the back door.
After a day of skiing or exploring the shops and galleries of nearby Ketchum, come back to your Sun Valley getaway to relax in front of a fire. The large, wood-burning fireplace provides warmth and ambiance on chilly nights, and everyone will find a comfortable spot to relax. There's even a large coffee table for setting out snacks or playing a board game. A large window seat is a great place to sit and admire the views or just curl up with a good book. There's also cable TV here, as well as a DVD player for evenings spent snacking on popcorn and watching your favorite movies.
At meal time, you can set the large, reclaimed wood table and all sit down to more stunning mountain views along with your delicious dinner. This room also has high, wood beamed ceilings and a unique iron chandelier - it's just like having your own ski lodge dining room for meals!
Out on the deck, there's furniture for enjoying the majestic view. Bundle up for a hot cup of coffee outside on a chilly morning, or just relax on a sunny afternoon with a crossword puzzle. If it ever gets too cold, treat yourself to a dip in the private hot tub.
When it is time to head to the bright, full kitchen to make meals, you'll have a lot of counter space (including a kitchen island) to prepare breakfast, lunch, and dinner. There's room for kitchen helpers to assist with chopping vegetables and grating cheese, and when the meal's finished, the dishwasher will help make clean-up easy. So go ahead and plan homemade feasts like roast chicken and vegetable lasagna, or keep it simple and just heat up leftovers.
The lucky occupants of the master suite will have a king-sized bed, fireplace, and a desk for setting up a laptop to check email with the complimentary Wifi. There's deck access to go outside and admire the sunrise, and a wonderful, spa-like en suite bathroom with a jetted tub, vanity with double sinks, and a large walk-in, tiled shower.
The other three bedrooms each have comfortable spots for everyone - two rooms have queen beds and one has two twin beds. These are perfect for kids or friends sharing a room. The additional two bathrooms all feature beautiful tile work and walk-in showers. In addition, there's also a half bath for added convenience. Altogether, this home will very comfortably sleep up to eight guests.
The upstairs loft is a cozy spot for watching TV, playing games, or just letting the kids hang out and play. And if anyone gets dirty playing inside or outside of the house, there's a washer and dryer in the laundry room so everyone in your group will always have clean and dry clothes.
Of course, anytime of year is a wonderful time to visit Sun Valley, but winter is definitely magical. During ski season you'll have your pick of the family-friendly slopes at Dollar Mountain or the more challenging runs at Mt. Baldy. Other attractions include the outdoor Sun Valley skating rink, as well as cross-country skiing and snowshoeing at the Sun Valley Nordic & Snowshoe Center. At the River Run Day Lodge you can stop for an apres ski snack at one of the outdoor food stations, or maybe just a piping mug of hot cocoa.
In summer, instead of skiing or snowboarding down the mountain, you can hike or ride a mountain bike down! Just make the scenic trip up Mt. Baldy in the gondola, and then follow your sense of adventure - even if it leads you to a tasty lunch at the The Roundhouse restaurant before you decide on your downhill strategy. In Sun Valley there are more than 30 miles of paved bike paths and a number of bike rental shops, as well as golfing at the Elkhorn Golf Course (less than four miles from your front door). And in the nearby town of Ketchum, you'll find galleries, funky little shops, and a number of up-and-coming restaurants and eateries.
Book a stay at this gorgeous Sun Valley vacation rental and stay nice and warm in the winter while the snow falls down, or spend sunny afternoons hiking, biking, or golfing. All the while you'll enjoy gorgeous views and great vacation amenities here while you explore Idaho's famous Sun Valley.
