From this location about a mile from downtown Ketchum, all the amenities of Sun Valley await, from world-class golf courses to five-star restaurants to breathtaking mountain vistas. Hiking and mountain biking trails keep travelers active all summer, while skiing - both downhill and cross country - and snowboarding make the region one of the most popular winter destinations in the nation. The River Run Day Lodge is just over two miles from your door and Dollar Mountain slopes are only two miles east.
The living area is bright and airy, with a sliding glass door leading to a small deck. Inside, the space is warm and inviting, with a sectional sofa facing a flatscreen TV with cable and DVD player. WiFi is included. Two comfortable black butterfly chairs sit against one wall and a small Persian rug covers part of the floor. Scenic photography dots the walls of the living and dining space. The latter comes equipped with a four-seat dining set that expands to accommodate six (or provide extra room for jigsaw puzzles or board game marathons!). The cozy but open kitchen boasts an electric range and is stocked with myriad appliances and gadgets, anything you might need to prepare a hearty homemade breakfast before you hit the slopes. A dishwasher is on hand for an easy clean up!
Down the hall, the intimate bedroom boasts hardwood floors, a queen bed with a cream coverlet and a small Persian rug. More scenic photography lines the walls of the entire room. You won't fight over space since the closets are big enough for his and hers sections. A rustic full bath, with a lovely sink, affords guests plenty of towels and light.
The condominium community includes a seasonal outdoor pool and coin-operated laundry facilities as well as underground parking. The KART bus line is just outside your door, making it easy to head to the ski slopes (less than a mile away) or into town. In the warmer months, cyclists will love the easy access to the Ketchum bike path.
Sun Valley is a skier's mecca, and for good reason. With more than 3,400 vertical feet, the area is a bonafide powder paradise. Bald and Dollar Mountains boast slopes for beginners to advanced skiers so nobody is left out of the fun, no matter the skill level. Sun Valley is also home to a variety of shops and dining possibilities. Head to Konditorei for Austrian tortes. Try the iconic The Ram for steak and salmon. From bike shops to outfitters to women's apparel, the fashionista in the group won't be bored.
This sunny Sun Valley / Ketchum vacation rental is in the heart of it all and perfect for any couple looking to ski or snowboard or just relax in the cool mountain air.
