A nuanced blend of the bold and the subtle is woven throughout. The attention to detail and European sensibility is rare and exquisite.”

In summer golf, tennis, mountain biking, road biking, gondola riding, hiking, horseback riding and dining. We are proud of our paved & smooth 33 mile bike path that goes all over the valley. We have world class fly fishing in Big Wood River that flows through the valley and Silver Creek just south. To the north are alpine lakes including popular Red Fish Lake for boating, fishing, hiking, sunbathing, sand beach activities, lodge and live music. In summer the days are long, the flowers abound, and evenings are cool. The Sun Valley Symphony at our beautiful Sun Valley Pavilion along with concerts, festivals, and events fill the calendar. There are frequent "gallery walks". We have a beautiful peaceful Community Library along with it's legendary thrift shop "The Gold Mine." There is a variety of "resort chic" and sporting gear shopping in Ketchum and Sun Valley.
