Lovely Elkhorn condo - ski in/ski out on Dollar w/ shared pool & hot tub!

After a day on the white slopes at Baldy or Dollar Mountain, stow the skis, hang the socks to dry by the gorgeous new earthen-stone gas fireplace, and relax in the roomy living area of this lovely two-bedroom condo with loft in colorful Sun Valley. With room for six, the amenities in this condo - such as a TV with cable and DVD - are only the beginning of the numerous activities awaiting you in the Sun Valley/Ketchum area. Located within walking distance of the Elkhorn chairlift (the first chairlift in the U.S.), you'll also enjoy free access to Elkhorn's seasonal outdoor pools, hot tubs, sauna/steam room, tennis and volleyball courts, and are just a short shuttle ride away from Sun Valley's other famous ski areas.

Make yourself a cup of coffee, step out onto the small Juliet balcony and listen to the stream rushing (in season). Then, settle into this cheery space, brightly lit from sunlight through the big windows. The painting of a winter scene and the ski poles on the wall remind you: you're in colorful Sun Valley, immortalized in story and song. Bring along some DVDs of your own to enjoy, or just grab one from the library. There are books and games as well for more "unplugged" diversions.

At mealtime, you'll have plenty of room to slice and dice on the long granite countertops and lots of cupboard space for the supplies you've packed in. Recessed stove, microwave and dishwasher conserve space, and you'll be able to enjoy your favorite coffee, freshly ground in the grinder. Gather 'round the rustic wood dining table with room for six and enjoy your meal. If you're not up to cooking, head out to one of the top-notch eateries in Sun Valley and nearby Ketchum.

At bedtime, settle in for the night in the master bedroom where you'll sleep in a king bed under comfortable linens with lots of pillows to prop you up while you read before bed. The others can head upstairs to either the guest room with a queen bed and en suite bath, or to the loft where they'll find two twin beds and a writing desk, perfect for penning that final entry in the journal before going to sleep.

Though this condo is located very near the lift at Elkhorn, ski buffs should know that it's only open during "the big snow" winters, otherwise, skiers and boarders are routed via the shuttle to the nearby slopes at Bald and Dollar Mountain(s). Your stay here will also put you close to the Sun Valley Nordic and Snowshoe Center which features a restaurant, lounge, bar and locker rooms, along with equipment repair, rental and storage. You can also play a round of virtual golf here! If you prefer the real thing, there are four courses in the Sun Valley area, and you can even enjoy a 10% discount off your game at the Elkhorn fairways.

In warmer weather, you can hike, bike, fish, and climb in Sawtooth National Recreation Area. Take the bike over to the path that runs north for 10 miles and south for 16 miles along the Big Wood River. If you're looking for a piece of art to bring home from your visit, you're in the right place: there are nearly a dozen galleries in nearby Ketchum, and lots of places to shop and dine.

Sun Valley is a special destination for outdoors lovers, and this lovely condo makes the perfect home away from home!

Previous review I forgot to mention the only issue we encountered was Luke warm water in the shower. That aside, we would rent this unit again. Very comfortable, quiet (early October), well apportioned. We were warned that the condo did not have WiFi but the community internet worked well enough for streaming.
Manager response:
Hello Robert, Thank you for your review. We have alerted our local property manager of your feedback so that the hot water heater can be turned up in temperature as needed. We hope to host you again soon!
Karl V. Aug 2019
We had a wonderful stay! Beds are comfortable, kitchen and baths are more than adequate. The accommodations comfortably handled 6 of us for over a week. We would definitely stay here again!
Dede s. Jul 2019
Nice home, easy instructions on directions and getting in. SO GLAD we got to use the pool except we did not get specific instructions on the fact there were two pools, where they were located and hours. I could not find hours without going on internet. We used the village pool, it was great, thank you. We would have liked Kleenex boxes. The closet door should be repaired so we could have used closet, for the price, those two things should be done. Clean home, thank you. We will be back!!
Manager response:
Thank you for your comments, Dede! The closet door has been fixed since your stay. We provide the pool amenity passes the Elkhorn Association creates to our guests via email prior to arrival. They can either be used in printed form or electronically from a cell phone to gain access to the Elkhorn Village pool and the Harkness Center pool. Maps to help locate the pools can be found in the guest welcome binder.

Renee B. Sep 2018
We thought it was pretty well stocked and very accomodating. The kitchen was nice.
Sarin L. Sep 2018
It was very clean and cozy!
Ray B. Sep 2018
This condo worked well for us as a family of four. The kitchen is nicely updated and appointed. There are two nice sized bedrooms and a loft with extra beds. The living area is small, but adequate. Overall, this was a nice condo commensurate with the price. I would stay here again.
Olga K. Aug 2018
We enjoyed our 10 days stay at this condo. It suited our family of 5 perfectly. I liked that this unit stayed cool during hot summer days and had all we needed for our enjoyment. We were all happy to have those extra towels and variety of blankets!
Susan L. Jul 2018
The condo was perfect for 5 adults. Very clean, TONS of towels, and Carrie was able to drop off passes to Elkhorn amenities at my last minute request. She even left us a little bag of goodies! I would definitely stay here again.
Lyle H. Jun 2018
Had everything we needed and is in a great location.
Terrance A. May 2018
Great condo for two couples or six!

Very nice condo with good amenities.
Christopher M. Jan 2018
This unit may work for the budget minded traveler. Conveniently located, it's a 10-minute drive to the free parking lot at the main ski mountain in Sun Valley; however, be conscious that you will need to carry your luggage a good distance from the small parking lot to the building and then go up a flight of stairs. The DVD player was broken and the heating system isn't the best. Beyond these facts, it was clean and comfortable.
Manager response:
The fireplace has been repaired to assist with heating, and we have temporarily removed the DVD player until we are able to get another one in the unit. Thanks!
Craig G. Jan 2018
The unit was fantastic but there is an ongoing issue with the heating system - thermostat & fireplace. The first morning we woke to a 53 degree condo.
The problem was resolved shortly after by the friendly staff and maintenace
crew. Other than that our stay was fabulous.
Troy K. Jan 2018
This was our second venture into Sun Valley to rent a condo and ski. This unit was larger than the previous unit we rented and met all expectations. I tend to focus on little details, therefore, it drove me crazy that the blue ray player would play most discs. There were also a few remotes that had dead batteries. The kitchen was perfect for our needs and we cooked in it every meal. The king bed was cozy and the queen upstairs was a sleep number bed. Almost wanted to sleep in it, but I liked the king! My daughters loved the loft room with small beds to borough in. The living room was cozy and had ample room for my family of four. Bottom line: This is an older unit BUT we would definitely stay here again. You just can't be the overall value of this unit. Enjoy!!!!
Manager response:
We'll get those batteries replaced. We are delighted to see this guest enjoyed their experience!
Vicki S. Aug 2017
Nice condo and I would stay here again.
Blaine M. Jul 2017
We really enjoyed our stay in Ketchum and Sun Valley and hope to return someday. The condo was in a great location and in good condition. The kids enjoyed the pool, and we enjoyed relaxing in the condo after hiking and mountain biking. We also enjoyed running on the community path and riding into town.
Janice M. Jul 2017
My sister and I met here for a much needed sister weekend. The condo was easy to find with the directions we were given. The condo was clean and very nice and comfortable. Summer seems to be a very quiet time and we loved it! The kitchen and bathrooms were well equipped and stocked with fluffy white towels, etc.
Really enjoyed out stay!

Ideal for a couple and maybe a child. My wife and I stayed for two weeks, in late March for spring skiing.Condo was clean and inviting upon arrival with the gas fireplace warming the sitting room. While there is ample room for 2-3 people, there is only one bathroom with a single sink making getting ready for the day on Baldy a bit slow. We were ther as a couple and for us, it was fine. Bed was very comfortable and the hot tub facility was a 2 minute drive door to door, maybe a 10 minute walk. Local agent was most helpful in locating the place. Kitchen was updated and all appliances were new and worked well, especially the coffee bean grinder! Location is ideal since there are no ski-on accommodations available at Bald Mtn. It was easy to drive back and forth, 5 miles. Recommend a car for this resort, easy drive into Ketchum for restraints, etc. Shuttle bus runs to man and town about every 30 minutes and the stop is a block away from the condo. Aside from the single bathroom, access to the first floor ski locker was not available. It was locked off by the owners which required carrying skis, poles, and boots up two flights of stairs and storing equipment in the condo. We avoided this by leaving the skies and poles locked in the car when not in use, but use of the locker would have been appreciated. Sun Valley is amazingly beautiful and the spring conditions were great! We stayed for two weeks and cooked in many meals. The fireplace provides heat for the sitting room and kitchen area. Bedroom and bath are heated by individual baseboard electric heaters on reostat control, hard to adjust heat for the room because there is no thermostat for these rooms. Would stay here again: clean, functional, great location, and comfortable for 2-3 people. Also, washer, dryer was great, so do not overpack. Groceries in Ketchum was great, no need to shop for provisions in Hailey.

Condo was nice - cozy and comfortable for my family of four. But the acces to the hot tub and sauna promised was not as advertised. No pass to the facilities, and no directions on where they were located. Very disappointing- on a ski trip where the weather was less than ideal, the lack of access to amenities made the situation worse.
Manager response:
We are sorry to see this guest was not able to access the amenities; had we been notified we would have assisted in the matter right away.
Cory C. Feb 2017
Nice location to Dollar Mountain
Glen B. Jan 2017

It was the perfect little condo that had everything we needed for our stay. It was clean, updated, easy to check in and check out, would definitely stay here again!

We had our retreat here in this location with 11 attendees. We rented out 3 condos and it was perfect! Great stay! Great location! And very helpful staff.
Michael W. Mar 2016
Clean condo in an attractive area of Sun Valley. Cozy fireplace with ample warmth. Relaxing atmosphere. Comfortable bedding. Our college-aged sons enjoyed sharing the loft.
Heidi B. Mar 2016
Good home base for small family. Our daughter loved the loft and it was an easy walk to the elk horn lift.

Nice place a little hard to find via gps
Nancy N. Sep 2015
Very nice place. We'll maintained and we'll stocked.
Arlen W. Sep 2015
There were a few issues with the unit.
1. When I checked into the unit, the temperature in the condo was 59 degrees. There were instructions for the main heating unit. However, it had not yet been turned on for the fall season so I was unable to use it. I believe the pilot light was out.
2. There were instructions from both the Vacasa email and on a sheet of paper on the kitchen table for using the internet. However, they were both out of date as the access info had changed. Eventually I figured this out.
3. The electricity was out for the television and for several plug-ins and lights when I checked in. After doing some searching, I found the circuit breaker box and reset a circuit breaker that was out.

There were some small maintenance issues (e.g. spraying from the kitchen faucet), but nothing too big.

Overall, there just seemed to be a "musty-ness" about the place. We brought our 8 month old, and she woke up the first night with swollen eyes and a stuffy nose from sleeping on the sheets provided. My husband, who never has allergies or reaction to irritants, was stuffed up all weekend. (We were also using our own pillows, so something was in the air.) Not sure if it was the laundry soap, the cleaning supplies, etc. but the place as a whole was a little stale-smelling.

You could tell they made an effort to have everything clean and tidy. But again, see above comment.

I know this is typical for condos in this area, but there was no air conditioning in the unit. We were in Sun Valley mid-June, so the temps didn't get too high during the day. But it did get stuffy and hot during the afternoon and we ended up using a fan (provided) to cool the room for our daughter during her naps, and kept most drapes drawn during the day (negating the view provided).

If you have a little one who is crawling or in need of space to move, you'll have to move a lot of furniture. There was 1 large couch, 4 end tables, 2 large chairs, and an entire kitchen table/chairs set up in the living room. We pushed nearly everything aside to allow room for our daughter. She's 8 months and barely crawling, so she didn't mind. But it did feel a little tight.

The upstairs room was locked during our stay. We didn't expect this, and weren't notified about it. We were counting on the room to give our daughter her space for naps and sleep. Ended up sleeping with us in the master, but a bit of an inconvenience.

As to be expected in condo living, there were some noisy neighbors. The place as a whole was pretty empty, as it was the low point in the season. But there were some obnoxiously noisy tenants a few condos down. Not sure if they were renters or owners, but they were crazy loud at night way past midnight and let their 2 dogs run all over the property. I normally wouldn't mind too much, but our 8 month old didn't seem to enjoy the extra noise. Just a reminder of the close quarters.
Manager response:
We appreciate your comments and will take care of the kitchen faucet right away. We hope your little family made some wonderful memories!

We would revisit this property in a heartbeat. The surroundings are quiet and beautiful - unhurried! The village pool is very clean and well maintained. The staff are very helpful.
