About the property

Cottage, 4 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 3.5 Baths (Sleeps 11)

Welcome to West Ketchum.

Our French chateau inspired cottage is close to everything and far from nothing.

Imagine being walking distance to downtown Ketchum yet peacefully removed from the bustle and noise of Main street...all in the same spot. 

Step inside our Sun Valley cottage to find sandstone floors, fine hardwood details and hand plastered walls throughout the custom handmade 2 structure property. 

The large backyard and garden are an oasis of foliage in the Summer and a stunning backdrop of snow covered aspen trees come Winter time. Bald mountain hovers directly behind the property. 

Every corner will surprise you with quality, detail, fit and finish. 

The large living room has two couches and contains an HDTV gathering area, wood fireplace and wet bar that allows everyone to spend time together and relax.

The Bose sound system pumps out rich musical backdrops while the dramatic above cabinetry lighting sets the mood for a sensational evening. 

Everyone stays in the mix with kitchen, dining and living room all connected and opening directly onto the expansive back patio and side BBQ and hot tub area. 

Whether enjoying the aroma of wild thyme over a glass of wine on the slate patio or a cool cocktail in the hot tub with snow falling, the seasons will delight you at our one of a kind home. 

Nothing else in Sun Valley is like it!

About Richard Lomas

Originally purchased in 1997, our family continues to enjoy visiting the Wood River Valley for holidays, get together, skiing, snowmobiling, hiking and more. We're very excited to be able to share our wonderfully unique home with visitors!

Richard Lomas purchased this house in 1997

Why Richard Lomas chose Ketchum

Our family has been visiting Sun Valley since the 1960's as there's just nothing else like it. The combination of small town charm along with world class amenities and superb skiing make Ketchum & Sun Valley unbeatable!

In terms of our property in particular...Simply put, there's nothing else like our house in the Ketchum area. It's a made by hand French styled chateau/cottage with tremendous craftsmanship throughout. Beautiful natural woods & stones adorn the inside and out.

What makes this house unique

Being so close to town as well as having 2 structures on the property allows all visitors to enjoy time together as well as maintaining multiple daily itineraries. People can walk to and from town and the adjacent outdoor activities all throughout the day as they see fit.

Additionally, our home in particular is unique with its French inspiration and superb level of hand craftsmanship.

West Ketchum truly is the best of both worlds. We have full outdoor enjoyment areas yet are walking distance to Main Street. It's a real treat!

Perfect home for a perfect trip!

  • 5 of 5

We rented the home for a family Birthday trip. There were 8 of us (all adults) in the home, and we couldn't have asked for a better place to celebrate -- and ski! The house was exactly as described and has all the amenities -- especially in the kitchen -- that you would expect in a high end rental. The house is roomy, comfortable and extremely well appointed. I am an active cook who has rented several homes over the years, and this is by far the best equipped kitchen of any rental I've experienced. We can only imagine how beautiful this home is in the summer, when there is full access to the back patio, the yard and the immediate surroundings. Lastly, the owner, Richard, was extremely responsive to every question/request, and clearly wanted to ensure that our experience was flawless. I would highly recommend this property to anyone. Thanks again, Richard!!

Very nice

  • 5 of 5

The cottage and garage apartment on Rocking Horse were exactly what we needed. Both are tastily decorated and are more than adequately furnished with everything one might need. We also appreciate the quick responses from the owner to our questions. Being near the Hemingway school and its large play areas were a big plus for us and our grandchildren.

Pleasant, convenient

  • 5 of 5

Great location close to town and skiing, well-appointed kitchen for big family dinners. Easy in and out. The only thing that would make it better is blinds in the bedrooms - the view is lovely but the early morning sun is bright.

Just 1/4 mile behind the house is wonderful fly fishing in the Big Wood River. A trail head that's 100 yards from our driveway leads right to the river.

Additionally, there is a magnificent public tennis court (2 courts) just a few hundred yards from the house.
