About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 5-6)

This house is located in the historical district of Hailey, about 10 miles from the Sun Valley Resort. The exterior of the house follows the bungalow style of the district, yet the windows, doors and interior have been completely renovated to a clean, open and modern finish.

The house has a cottage-style garden with flagstone walkways, shady/grassy areas for play, and mature conifers and huge, majestic deciduous trees. The yard is fully fenced for your fido(s). The living room and kitchen are very 'open plan' and provide a nice gathering place. There is a river-rock fireplace, and HDTV 1080p television with surround sound in the living room, with Roku box for streaming movies and television (Amazon Prime account), as well as DVD player and iPod dock.

The master bedroom is located on the second floor with a queen bed. It has an ensuite bathroom with both a shower stall and a separate, large soaking tub that accommodates two people. Guest bedroom #1 is also located on the second floor, with a full-size bed and its own full ensuite bathroom. Guest bedroom #2 is downstairs, and has two twin beds, using the full downstairs bathroom (which is not ensuite).

The kitchen has a stainless steel island that has three counter stools for conversation while cooking. The dining table seats six without the extension leaves, or twelve with the two extension leaves and two benches. There are kitchen dishes, serving platters and flatware for twelve as well.

The amenities and businesses of Hailey are within short walking distance.

Sun Valley Resort and the town of Ketchum are about 20 minutes drive to the north.

About Greg

I am an alpinist first, secondly a land and water planning consultant. I first skied at Sun Valley during the 1970/71 season and have been in love with the Wood River Valley and surrounding mountain ranges ever since. My favorite local activity is backcountry skiing. Summer backpacking and climbing are a close second, and I am on my mountain bike most days when the trails are dry. I split my time between Hailey and Boise, Idaho.

Greg purchased this house in 2007

Why Greg chose Hailey

After living and working all over the US, Europe and Australia, I concluded that this was the nicest place on the planet for my tastes. The area offers an amazing combination of culture and wilderness. Gourmet restaurants, fresh and exotic ingredients for cooking at home, great shops, and a vibrant visual and performing arts scene are surrounded by five mountain ranges that each has unique character and wilderness values. Sun Valley is America's oldest destination ski resort and has a sense of heritage and tradition that I adore. The area is pretty hard to reach from the coasts, which keeps it relatively untrammeled. There is really no 'industrial tourism' of the kind seen in the mountains of California, Colorado and Utah.

What makes this house unique

Hailey is the seat of government for Blaine County. The historic avenues district is in the center of town and is three blocks from Main Street, where the restaurants and shops are located. The home is less than 100 feet from the trail network (unlimited mountain biking in summer and 170 kilometers of groomed Nordic trails in winter). The town's rodeo grounds and hockey/skating rink is two blocks away, and is lighted for free skating into the evenings. Hailey is the most vibrant, four season town of the Wood River valley, and is home to many of the valley's finest restaurants, shops and performing arts events.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Greg,

Your house in Hailey worked perfectly for our group!. It was spotlessly clean with all the supplies one needs. The kitchen was well equipped. Your information sheets were referred to several times....they were a good addition.

You might want to check out your fire alarms: our first night we were awoken by their sounding off at around 2AM. Luckily there were no more incidents. We did open the cover on the one in the double room but couldn't determine what set them off.

You have a lovely house and we were all grateful to have the use of it for 4 nights.

Thank you.

Beautiful setting and convenient location

  • 5 of 5

My family had a wonderful time in this beautiful setting. The garden is a great place for relaxing in the evenings and the location is convenient for walks into town. A perfect place for our family get together! The owner was great to work with and even contacted us on our arrival day to make sure everything was ok.

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time staying in this home. We were so pleased with the location, the home is very well maintained, the yards so peaceful, and the squirrels are very entertaining. Thank you Greg for offering your home to us. Thank you for the perfect home away from home. Can hardly wait until we can visit Hailey again. Loved being so close to Ketchum and Sun Valley.

Hailey, Idaho. USA

Even better in person

  • 5 of 5

This is a long overdue review after a wonderful extended stay in Greg's house. This home is even more gorgeous in person. The common area is so inviting. Everyone who walks into the house comments on what a great area it is. And ALL of the beds are so comfy! I tested each one at some stage tending to my young children. Great Kitchen, Great Master Bath, the list goes on. Come in the winter to ski and in the summer to enjoy the garden. Stay in Hailey to live like a local out of the hub bub of Sun Valley. Be sure to enjoy the valleys' best restaurant CK's which is only blocks away. We loved Hailey so much - we bought our own place!

Superb Stay !

  • 5 of 5

We have been going to Hailey for over 30 years and this property was by far our most favorite. Great open floor plan that was both cozy and comfortable. Beautiful grounds in a quiet setting within walking distance of virtually everything we needed. Very clean and easy to clean up. Was even better in person than what we had hoped seeing it online. High, high recommendation......we will be back.
