At the end of each day, enjoy the privacy of your very own living space and take in the view of Bald Mountain right from the deck. Whether you're planning a weekend ski getaway or an extended business trip, you can unwind with Hulu or Netflix on the Roku TV.

What's nearby:
This studio is located in the center of Ketchum, so the very best of the area is already at your toes. For a skiing adventure, the lifts at River Run Day Lodge are half a mile south. You'll also find coffee shops, restaurants, art galleries, boutiques, and entertainment within a half-mile stroll in downtown Ketchum. Sun Valley Resort, about a mile and a half away, offers ice skating, horseback riding, music, and so much more. In both the summer and winter months, the local bus system (which stops within walking distance) can easily get you around Ketchum and Sun Valley.

Located close to city center.
We checked in about 1 hour early and room was very clean and comfortable.

I enjoyed this property. It's an excellent no-frills place, convenient to everything in downtown Ketchum, and to River Run. (note I was not here in ski season). It was spacious enough, and had everything I needed for a very affordable price compared to other places I looked at. If fancy decor and curb appeal are your thing, this place doesn't rate, but I wanted a decent place to sleep and eat without having to drive far to do things in town, so this was perfect. The only negative was the TV didn't really seem to work, or at least the picture was never synced with the sound, and it frequently rebooted. If TV is important to you, consider asking about it in advance. I didn't care, and just enjoyed myself outdoors. :)

Location, Location, Location... UPSCALE unit in duplex just a block from the Main street, and the Limelight, another to the Performing Arts Center and the Village Market. I don't think I walked more than 5 blocks over a week of going out nightly. The River Run Lodge can't be more than a mile away. The unit is enormous. The master suite has its own gas fireplace and PLENTY of extra space for relaxing. There is a jacuzzi tub that I use liberally (thanks to my friend Jacko who was using the suite.) It also has a steam shower and a walk in closet that exceeds mine at home. I stayed in a room that could have a couple or 3-4 kids using a queen bunk, with a perfectly satisfactory bathroom with shower/bath. Adjacent is a similar sized room designed for an adult couple. TVs, of course, in all the rooms and a sound system in the master suite. The kitchen has all the amenities and comes stocked with bacon and eggs, and all the basic condiments, to make shopping when you arrive unnecessary. Frankly I have never seen a better kitchen in this sort of space. There is a dining space space for 6, open and adjacent to the living room and kitchen. I hope to stay there anytime I ski in Sun Valley.

Great location in Ketchum
Ryan . Feb 2019
The value is great, location is fine, however there are some deal breakers and that is cleanliness. When you find “white” stains on both comforters it is a hard issue to overlook.

I had an awesome vacation and this place was the perfect location. If you want a place to where you can walk to everything book it! I was able to walk to the ski lifts and downtown Ketchum easily. The place had a home like feel with a completely set up kitchen, electric fireplace and tv with set up with Hulu and Netflix. The bunk beds were comfortable and having a full kitchen was wonderful for meals in. They also have a nick desk area with information and pamphlets about the area/stuff to do. The place literally has everything from lotion, hair dryer, shampoo/conditioner, spices, laundry detergent, coffee maker, blender, toaster, microwave, razors, face wash, and so much more. I gave a 4 star because had issues getting the heat to work the first night. Heating is not centralized and from a window like unit. We had just had a huge snow storm and the unit was frozen and covered in snow. Once uncovered it started working. The electric fireplace also heats the place well and there are a ton of extra blankets. Also to unlock the front door you can use an app. My phone is old and wouldn't support the app so I used the lock box. The lock box likes to jam so if you do use the lock box I recommend just keeping the keys. I had a rental car so just kept them together. Also something to note when it snows the complex wants the parking lot cleared out from 10a-12p. Wasn't a big deal for us because we'd just park the car at River Run on the way to the lifts. You don't really need a rental car for this location. We got one because we had family staying at the Sun Valley Lodge and unaware of the free buses. Communication was excellent and anytime I had an issue I would immediately get a response. Also do not run the TV, electric fireplace and microwave at the same time. We did that and lost power to half the unit and couldn't find the breaker box. Communication was excellent and someone came to resolve the issue. If you have the same issue, the breaker box is on the wall right next to the front door. With the front door open it hides behind it. I would love to stay here again and would recommend to others.

This spot was so wonderful! It had everything we needed for a stay in Sun Valley for a wedding weekend. The hosts were also very attentive and communicative when I got in touch. Walking distance to the slopes and the town. We barely needed to use our car. Great amenities, value, and location. It was perfect and we'll most likely be back!
Corwin . Jan 2019
You won't go wrong staying here. One room but very comfortable. Don't be afraid to switch the top bunk around and move the head away from the blower unit. Extra blankets are awesome! We weren't there to watch tv but after a long day playing outside it was great all the big "guys" were on to use....netflix, prime. Looking forward to a repeat visit here.

Nice place for a quick getaway. Excellent location & value.
Rebecca . Dec 2018
All the extras like kitchen and bath items that were provided really made this visit feel like a home away from home. Janine and Raechl really thought of what a person would need while traveling and also instant responses to messages and concerns.
Brian . Dec 2018
Great location and super clean
Scott . Dec 2018
The location and accommodations are spectacular and very close to the mountain. This met all of our expectations and the host is super helpful, and quick to address any questions. I would recommend this place to anyone and would seek to stay again if I am ever in Sun Valley.
Christy . Dec 2018
This place is clean and cute and perfect for an individual, couple or a small group who is comfortable being in close quarters with one another. It is clean and has great quality kitchen and bathroom items. The beds were super comfortable, and there were plenty of extra blankets. The location of this place is great for both recreation and quick access to downtown
Phil . Nov 2018
Beautiful spot, very comfy and cozy, had everything we needed and more. My wife and I liked it so much we extended an extra day! Will be staying here anytime I am in Sun Valley.
Genoa . Nov 2018
Great little place, walkable distance everywhere in Ketchum. Has all the amenities that you could need.
Steven . Oct 2018
Pros: good location. Cons: Awful polyester bed linens. Old cheap foam pillows. Terrible mattress as well. The bed mattress was so bad we tried the sofa sleeper which was even worse and had no linens. I have stayed in other apartments in the same building that were awesome. Suggest at least investing in some decent linens.
Denise . Oct 2018
cozy space, centrally located to all points of interest, lots of special touches by the host
Bill . Oct 2018
Returning customer for a week. Excellent location, very quiet, and has everything you need in the apartment for a comfortable stay. Was able to rent it very quickly and found it very clean with plenty of amenities.
Kate . Sep 2018
Great location, nice size for a few people, very friendly and helpful hosts. The app for unlocking the door is a little strange, but when it works it's great. But don't let your phone run out of battery, since it's your only key!
Beth . Sep 2018
The care and attention that went into the guest experience is outstanding. The place is an excellent value for the price and fully utilizes its cozy footprint.
Brady . Sep 2018

Scott . Aug 2018
Best place to stay in Sun Valley! Must experience.
Marie . Aug 2018
It was a perfect location and a lovely spot. I felt very comfortable and it was exactly what I needed. Not to mention, the view of Bald Mountain from the room is pretty awesome. I hope next time I am out visiting my son, I can stay again.
Cheryl . Aug 2018
This little place was clean, comfortable, and a great value! The curtains to let in daylight open directly to parking and a well-trafficked road, so privacy and daylight were linked in that way. If you are sensitive to sound, there is not much sound isolation between this spot and other units - it didn’t bother me at all but I heard some pretty loud things in my stay. ;) I had a great experience overall, it had everything I needed and I am glad I stayed here.
Jane . Aug 2018
nice and clean.
Adan . Jul 2018
Host was great to work with. Communication was smooth. Check-in and check-out simple. Would stay again.
Samuel . Jul 2018
This was my first AirBnB stay and will not be my last. The hostess was very kind, easy to talk with and was understanding of my needs. She was quick to respond and answered my questions with more detail than expected. I enjoyed the lock that connected to my phone and eliminated the need for keys. My overall experience was fabulous
Alyson . Jul 2018
Great location! Very clean, great ambiance, and perfect size!
Abraham . Jul 2018
Quiet, clean, comfortable. It was very simply to check in and out with the August App. It was a wonderful stay and is perfect for a great getaway. Near Main Street, but far enough for serenity. Thank you for your hospitality.
Tj . Jul 2018
Perfect location, easy walking or biking distance to everything in town. Make sure to get breakfast at The Kneadery.
Serena . Jul 2018
Janine has a great place, very clean, and conveniently located - it’s an easy walk to center of town. It’s located in a condo community on the first floor and there’s ample parking.

Paul . Mar 2018
Can’t beat the location. Blocks to all the restaurants / shops / groceries and around the corner from the River Run Lodge at Sun Valley. Great space for 2 ski bums, enjoyed our stay in Ketchum. Enough room. Simple.
George . Mar 2018
Raechl's place was perfect for my weekend ski trip to Sun Valley. I was able to walk downtown and to the slopes, the location couldn't be better. Inside, it was clean and cozy, with all the right amenities. Finally, Raechl was extremely accommodating with my arrangements. My original flight was canceled and rescheduled for the next day due to a storm. Raechl worked with me as I revised my travel plans, including blocking an extra day for me on the calendar while I figured things out. Highly recommended. Would definitely stay here again.
Chelsea . Mar 2018
We loved staying at this cozy and quiet apartment! Very clean and comfortable. I would absolutely stay here again when visiting the area. Good coordination with the host and great amenities.
Kara . Mar 2018

Henry . Feb 2018
Raechl's place is in a great location close to downtown and the River Run Ski Lodge. The studio apartment has everything a couple needs to have a good time in Ketchum.
