About the property

Estate, 7 Bedrooms + Loft, 7 Baths, (Sleeps 14-17)

Magical and Magnificent Sun Valley property once featured on the cover of House Beautiful. 7000 sq foot log cabin estate on a beautiful 2 acres of manicured grounds on the big wood river right across the river from the Hemingway estate where he himself fished every day. Log Cabin life meets The Four Seasons... surrounded by scenic mountain views and the running river, you will often see deer, moose and silver foxes while steps from the best of Sun Valley restaurants and services. The gated property is just north of Ketchum in the Northwood estates between the Sun Valley Lodge and the Warm Springs and River Run Lodges. Walking distance to town with Bike Paths at end of street that connect to entire Bike grid. The house features a master bedroom with large private bath with his and her sinks, his and her walk in closet, steam shower and hot tub. There is a 2nd master sized bedroom over the garage that is connected to the home that is very private with a charming pitched wood ceiling. There are 4 upstairs bedrooms of equal size, each with queen or full sized beds and private showers and baths and TV's, plus a fantastic bunk room that will sleep 5-6 kids or young adults.

If the mountains and river aren' enough we feature an arcade game room, gym and private massage room. There is a Den and a living room with Plasma TV's and a full sized chef's kitchen with Breakfast room. There is a full sized inside hot tub with mountain views and a fantastic outdoor pool just beside the river. Ping Pong Table, Playstation 3 system, Pool table, darts, etc... lots of books and games in house as well. Private access to Big wood river with great fly fishing right outside with guides readily available to teach beginners or lead experienced fisherman to the hot spots.

There are fantastic caretakers that can arrange all activities, reservations, chef's, nannies, massages, car rentals, housekeeping, and anything else needed during your stay (additional costs). There is no other home like this available and is used by the owner often so you will feel totally at home.

Our ideal renter is single family but other renters will be considered. We do rent out for weddings and any planned parties must be discussed prior to renting. This is also a non-smoking home and property.

Our hope is that you will fall in love with Sun Valley and this breathtaking estate and come back year after year.

As good as it gets

  • 5 of 5

This home is as good as it gets. We have rented various upscale homes for the last decade. This is the only one that has exceeded our expectations on every level. The house is beautifully decorated yet comfortable, and quite large yet cozy. The property is expansive, allowing for true family fun....soccer, whiffle ball, frisbee....you name it. The river setting is truly exquisite...you are steps away from flyfishing or simply siiting on the bank and listening to the river run. All of this with an unbeatable proximity to bikepaths and downtown Ketchum. This property has quelled our interest in ever renting another home in Sun Valley. It doesn't get any better.

Returning Guest

  • 5 of 5

We have been given the great fortune of having been annual invited guests to this unique property for over ten years. To describe this 'cabin' as a vacation retreat is to diminish the experience. Rarely has a home felt so grand yet so intimate. Inside it's rustic doors we are always welcomed with an easy and elegant comfort, a fireplace warmth, a home away from home escape. Its rustic decor and flowing expanse allows for privacy even when filled with family and friends. Every room feels like its own private suite, yet with beckoning gathering places spread throughout the house. Outside, the rolling stream and manicured property makes this an oasis you think about long after you head back to the crazy city. We have ski'd, fly fished, hiked, horse-backed, shopped, eaten, eaten more, and never seem to run out of things we haven't had time to do, again and again. But the best times have been relaxing and enjoying the emotional hearth this home creates, the escape from stress, the immediate and inviting warmth you feel as soon as you enter. We have tried over and over to find a way to thank the owners for allowing us to return, but the best we can do is to share our experience of it, so that now others can enjoy it as well. This place is a gift, and the love that went into creating it fills every beam and post.
