Updated townhome w/Mt. Baldy views located by River Run ski lifts & trails!

This Alpine Villa townhome is located in the heart of Ketchum, and just one minute from the River Run ski lifts! This darling unit was remodeled in 2013, and offers beautifully updated furnishings with a full kitchen. With a unique three-story layout featuring tucked-away lofts and reading nooks, this cozy getaway is ideal for a couple's romantic retreat or a small family vacation.

Upon entering the town home from the fenced-in courtyard, there is an open living/dining/breakfast area on the ground level. On this level is a very efficient gas stove, a flat screen TV, couch and a breakfast bar (seats two). There is additional seating with a pull-out table with two more matching bar stools. The west-facing French doors bring in ample light and wonderful views of Mt. Baldy and her majestic trails.

Up a flight of stairs brings you to a bath with a walk in shower and the master bedroom. The master has a king-size bed and another flat-screen TV. Again, the majestic mountain views are visible from many windows, so you can enjoy the soul-soothing panoramas from the moment you wake up. The master has a open staircase which leads to a small office loft, suitable for an adult needing their own private space to work or read.

One more flight of stairs from the master bedroom level brings you to a small room at the top of the stair. This area has a day bed with a pull out trundle underneath, which is convertible to a king bed as well. A ladder on this level will bring you to another nook suitable for reading.

While the home is most comfortable and private for two or three guests, we have plenty of fresh linens and fluffy towels for up to four adults. Please keep in mind, though, that the second bedroom will feel considerably smaller when the trundle bed is pulled out, and the home is not suitable for children under twelve due to its steep staircases and loft ladders. If you need to do laundry while staying in the townhome, shared, coin-operated washers and dryers are located across the parking lot.

This unique townhome makes a truly wonderful getaway. As you climb the stairs between floors, whimsical tree paintings accompany you; you'll immediately understand why we dubbed this home the Ketchum Treehouse!

The townhouse was only five blocks from the center of town. It is well maintained. We would rent it again.
George K. Oct 2018
Very comfortable bed, quiet, good value and easy to downtown . They do need to fix the lock---it takes 2 people to lock it! Otherwise great place and I would rent it again.
Courtney Z. Oct 2018
Great location. Perfect walking distance from the town and great accommodations
Wyatt C. Aug 2018
We just got back from Ketchum and are ready to return. Great get-a-way without our kids to enjoy a beautiful part of the country. The Treehouse had everything we could have wanted or needed; close to ski slope, close to restaurants and bars, yet far enough away to enjoy the peacefulness. We would definitely come back and stay here.
David M. Aug 2018
Great location and very clean place.
Diana B. Jul 2018
We loved the location - close to My. Baldy and downtown was easy walking/riding distance. Great views of the mountains too! Felt very comfy inside with all the right amenities. Thank you!
Eric R. F. Mar 2018
Great location, very nice condo. Best for families though, because there isn't a ton of privacy between the rooms.
Thomas P. Feb 2018
The Treehouse is very conveniently located for skiing at Bald Mountain. It's a short walk (maybe 200 yards?) to the Silver Line bus stop and then only a couple of minutes to the River Run base area. Driving to the base would take longer and require more walking. It's also 2 blocks from a local grocery store and not much further to a variety of restaurants.

The unit includes a nice recliner in the living room. The master bedroom is a good size and includes comfortable bed. The bathroom includes only a shower, but is it quite large.

If you stay here, be aware that the directions we were given were wrong. They referred to xyz STREET instead of xyz AVENUE and the name of the development has changed.
Joseph L. Jan 2018
Plenty of room with everything included. Close to everything and within walking distance to town.

Good Morning Vacasa,

I wanted to provide you with some feedback on our recent stay at the "Ketchum Treehouse" prior to posting a review online.

First of all I would like to say that this is a very unique and cozy property as it has a ton of character and a wonderful location for skiing and access to restaurants and shopping.

That being said their were a few things that were not great.... In my opinion the rental property was not "as advertised" . For us the goal of any weekend in a mountain town is relaxation, because of the following we were not able to get as much as we could have out of the rental.

1.) Unfortunately there was not a working hot tub or one at all that was available for our use. This was a big let down as this is one of our favorite activities to wind down after a long day on the mountain and a big reason we chose this property.
2.) The cable service in this unit was essentially useless. We were unable to access any cable channels or movies other than the handful of local news channels with infomercials running 24/7....Even the guest book describes cable service being available but upon accessing the COX Cable guide a message appeared stating to contact the provider to upgrade the plan to receive access to any channels.
3.) This is a BIG ONE!! I woke up in the middle of the night to something crawling on my leg and eventually on my arm/pillow... I jumped out of bed turned on the lights and found two earwigs also know as pincher bugs in the BED! I understand that these things can happen but would not expect to find pincher bugs in linens that were supposedly washed prior to our arrival (same day).
4.) We received a note from the neighbor on our windshield stating that she hoped we enjoyed our visit but not to park in the row near our front door and rather we should be parking on the far side of the lot. This was not indicated in anything that I read and if there is a designated space it should be marked.

I would like to understand what you can do to make this right.

Manager response:
We are sorry to see there were some disappointments with this stay. This home has not advertised a hot tub for quite some time since the association decided not to fix or replace the hot tub. We are very sorry if this came as a surprise to our guests. The unit has a very basic cable package; guests are welcome to call if they have any questions about it. We did not notice any bugs when inspecting the unit, but we will keep an eye out. There are two parking spaces in front of this unit for guests to park in. We wish we had been notified of the note this guest received so we could have kindly reminded the neighbor of the parking arrangements. Thank you!

Lots of stairs, not suitable for elderly or small children.
YOLANDA D. Oct 2017
Perfect location: a great combination of easy strolling distance to Ketchum's restaurants and shops combined with a quiet, attractive townhouse setting. The master bedroom on the second floor was delightful: spacious with lots of light through a wall of windows. As accurately depicted in the property description, the townhome is multi-level and has rather narrow, steep stairs with multiple landings and loft-type spaces....that's part of the "treehouse" charm. The master bedroom is the only truly private sleeping area so best suited to a single, a couple, or a family with teen/tween children.
Mark H. Sep 2017
We will definitely stay here again. Our eldest son lives in Ketchum and we visit at least once a year (from Western New York).
There was ample 'equipment' for cooking. Everything was Great.
Thanks!
Alan S. Aug 2017
Location - only a few blocks to Main Street and down town. Very convenient.... relatively quiet location in town...... furnishings fair/ok.....
Only one bathroom for a house that can sleep 4-6 people. Small but nice bathroom.
Quality of construction: adequate at best
Second floor very warm during the day
And upper loft " hot"
It was clean and sufficient for a couple of days
Petrina Z. Feb 2017
Very comfortable for our family of four. This was our first trip to sun valley and we were very happy with the location... We will stay here again!
Jamie R. Feb 2017
Very convenient location to town and skiing. Clean, well-appointed. Would highy recommend for a couple...cozy and comfortable.
Richard J. Oct 2016
This is a lovely and well located unit. We stayed in the off-ski season so didn't benefit from its closeness to the lifts, but liked being able to walk to the center of Ketchum in 5 minutes for food shopping, bars and restaurants.

We liked this place. It was perfect for two. We were able to walk everywhere we wanted to go but it was a quiet location too.
Jim And Diane R. Sep 2016
We had a great time in the Treehouse. It was cleaned immaculately, the view from the second floor was impressive looking at Baldy and the condo has been thoroughly renovated throughut.
Carlos P. Sep 2016
With a random 3rd floor that we never even entered, the layout is slightly quirky, but it's otherwise very comfortable, and the location is just perfect for walking to town and everywhere you could need to go.
Kevin D. Sep 2016
This is our second time renting the place. The first was two years ago for our honeymoon and then for our anniversary this time. The place is so conveniently located to Ketchum. We parked on our arrival Friday afternoon and never drove anywhere again until we left Monday. Everything was in walking distance. The proximity to shopping, restaurants and other recreational activities makes this place hard to beat. The condo is clean and perfect for a couple or small family. We will definitely rent the unit again in the future if it is available when we are looking to vacation in the area.
Tom G. Aug 2016
Great time in Ketchum. Close to the town square. Walkable.
Leigh N M. Aug 2016
The Treehouse was a very nice and beautifully appointed unit. The kitchen was great, well stocked with everything needed to do some serious cooking! Loved the location, removed from downtown Ketchum, a smaller complex nestled in the trees. Quiet and restful. Can hardly wait to come back and will probably seek out this unit again!
Erica H. Jul 2016
We stayed at the Treehouse for 4 nights and had a great experience! The location is perfect for accessing the Wood River Trail, River Run Plaza, Ketchum, Sun Valley Inn without ever using the car. We did not need to drive except when we ventured north to go hiking in the Galena/Stanley area! Perfect size and amenities for a couple.
Christie D. Apr 2016
We loved this condo right in heart of Ketchum. Very comfortable and clean! Great amenities and a fun floorplan. I will stay here again for sure!!
Laura Z. Apr 2016
Overall, a great condo except for the lock issue.
Lauren P. Mar 2016
There was nothing terrible about the place, but for the price point and the amenities advertised, we were expecting more. For example, cable was extremely basic (limited to about nine channels), the hot tub was inaccessible, the gas stove did not work and the sliding glass door doesn't latch securely. The cleaning fee ($125) really bumps up the price point, and just FYI, the rental is provided by a vacation rental agency, not an owner. The layout of the bedrooms doesn't provide a lot of privacy, so as noted by other reviewer, it's really best for only a couple of adults. The location is great in easy walking distance to anywhere in town, and the rental was clean and comfortable, just not a great value.
Manager response:
We apologize for the inconveniences you experienced during your stay. The Property Manager will be sure to address the hot tub key, stove, and sliding door lock. We would love to see you again!
Kelly M. Mar 2016
My kids loved the multi-levels in the condo with all of the lofts.
Hillary K. Mar 2016
We really enjoyed our stay in the treehouse. Very roomy for 2 people. It is awesome being so close to the River Run lift. Best ski vacation ever! Clean, well furnished and convenient to all shops and restaurants. We would definitely stay here again!
LINDZI C. Feb 2016
Great place. It was clean, comfortable, awesome location, great ammenities. Would rent again!
Chelsea T. Feb 2016
We stayed here for 3 nights during a snowboarding vacation. It was just two of us who stayed and that was perfect. It is a 10 minute was to the River Run Lodge or you can catch the city bus stop right across the street that is free and stops there several times an hour. The kitchen was well stocked. We finished off our trip with a perfect ending that was only possible due to the "late checkout" option we we're given. Cant wait to come back in the summer!
Kathleen A. Nov 2015
Comfy and cozy .. beautiful view from the living room and amazing star gazing from the master bedroom ... BIG SKY indeed! EZ walk to downtown Ketchum on quiet streets ... 3 blocks.
Holly K. Nov 2015
We arrived in Ketchum on a Friday afternoon for a quick weekend getaway. I hadn't taken the time to book a place to stay prior to our arrival although found this listing for the "Treehouse" appealing and contacted the management. They were quick to respond and very helpful, taking care of us in a matter of 15-20 minutes. The little condo was just what we were looking for and perfectly located close to downtown, the river, and the ski lift.
John A. Oct 2015
Located only three blocks from main street, so we could easily walk to stores and restaurants, especially nice in the warm fall evenings and sunsets. Also located close to the Big Wood river, River Run ski lifts, and bike/walking path. A unique cozy property.
Dave F. Sep 2015
Great space inside. Bit older condo complex. But all and all a nice place.
Megan H. Aug 2015
We had a fabulous girls weekend at this property. It is adorable, clean and close to everything! We all didn't want to go and would stay again anytime! I loved getting up and going for runs on the bike/run trail! Thanks for a wonderful experience!
Morris H. Aug 2015
The condo is very nice, well appointed, good location close to the middle of town. However, the bedroom was noisy--you hear the road noise and even rain coming down the downspout which must have been right outside the bedroom window. Would not recommend for light sleepers.
Tyler B. Aug 2015
I was expecting a little more "in the mountains" based off the pictures, but the cleanliness of it made up any unexpected surprises. It was clean from top to bottom and that was the most important. I would definitely stay here again.
Paula D. Aug 2015
Cozy, clean, comfortable quiet condo at the end of the complex in a residential neighborhood. Great location for walking or bike riding to shops and restaurants . Perfect for a couple or small family getaway. Not recommended for people who have trouble with stairs. Highly recommend !
Lesa M. Jul 2015
We enjoyed our stay at the treehouse and recommend it highly. Location is great for walking to Resturants, movies, shopping and recreation. We liked the complex, quiet, friendly neighbors (this is a "local" living complex). There was no pool but a spa. We did not use this. We would have had our grandchildren stay with us a night or two, but the condo got too hot in the upper floors. Location
for the winter months is great as you ski and see the gondolas from the couch.
Tyler N. Jun 2015
Visited Ketchum for work and really enjoyed my stay here. The location is great, close enough to be able to walk to everything in town, but nice and quiet and peaceful. I'll definitely be back and would recommend this to anyone visiting Ketchum.
Sybil B. Feb 2015
Property was just as advertised
Perfect for couple, maybe one more
Convenient to slopes (3min) and town (2min) and Wood River trail
Cable tv very limited
Claudia L. Jan 2015
Cute, funky, great bed, good location, great customer service, definitely will return.
Deborah F. Jan 2015
The condo was perfect! Is was very nicely decorated, very close to the lifts, and a short walk to town. Staying in the Ketchum Treehouse was a perfect vacation.
Kevin D. Sep 2014
The rental property was great. We were close enough to everything we wanted to do that we could walk. There are lots of great things to do that are also just a short drive away. The scenery was amazing from and around the rental. We loved sitting in the hot tub every evening which also had great views of the ski mountain. All in all, it was a fabulous location and the place was very clean and recently remodeled to make you feel like home. We thoroughly enjoyed it.
Manager response:
We are so happy to hear you enjoyed your stay with us. Please come back and visit again soon!
Steven E. Aug 2014
A great little place within easy walking/bicycle distance of many sights and eating establishments. Really enjoyed our stay.
Janet J. Mar 2014
this is a great place to stay, very clean and nice, great location for the slopes and shopping.
Amber K. Jan 2014
The photos don't really do this home justice- Though there are quite a few stairs in this home, I think it's fine for kids who can be careful of the hand-painted mural going up the stairway. The kitchen was fully stocked with everything we needed and the location close to downtown and skiing is great.
Jim C. Nov 2013
We loved this little but whimsically designed place. It fit our needs and desires except that there was no indoor bath and only one bathroom. Those lacks were more than made up for in the delightful design and great location. I'd stay there again in a second. Can not review the outdoor hot tub, as we did not use it.
Kristopher N. Sep 2013
The Treehouse was very nice for a romantic getaway. It is a perfect walking distance to get to main street, with many good restaurants and bars. The layout is perfect for 1 couple or 2. The fact they had a smart TV was very nice, we could catch up on Netflix while relaxing. Area is quiet and close to the biking/walking path.
Manager response:
Thank you for writing a review. We are happy to hear that you had a nice trip. Thanks again and we hope to see you again soon!
Benjamin B. Sep 2013
The "Treehouse" in Ketchum was a pleasure to stay at for our 4 days in Sun Valley. Very comfortable with updated appliances and furniture. In walking distance of everything with more than enough amenities for what you pay for.
David R. Aug 2013
Close to core ketchum, couple of blocks walk to restaurants and shops, 1 block from forest service park with live concerts - though no noise at the property. Nice comfortable, well equipped unit. Safe residential area, it is a townhouse so be prepared to go up and down stairs.
