Imagine your own home five miles within the Sawtooth National Forest, one of the largest nature preserves in the United States.
Imagine a 1500 square foot Bavarian-style chalet, complete with three fire places (including two located outdoors), heated floors, satellite TV, and antique Bavarian furniture.
You’ll be able to call the Warm Springs River as your own while it flows in front of the property under a covered wooded bridge 50 feet from the front door.
Not interested in winter sports? The summer’s don’t get any better at Croney Cove. Imagine rich blue skies, warm yet comfortable days, and cool, dry nights–an ideal vacation climate. Imagine flyfishing and grilling the rainbow trout in your own outdoor fire place.
Sun Valley in the summer is everything it is in the winter–only more so: mountain-biking, full-moon hikes, rafting on the Salmon River, mountain tours on horseback, hikes into the mountains with a llama by your side (he does all of the hauling). The number of hikes in the area are countless; they range from leisurely walks to tough ascents of 10,000 foot mountain peaks.
Of course, there is golf and tennis in nearby Ketchum as well as the world-famous Sun Valley ice shows with their Olympic performers. Go skeet shooting and boating–or spend a few nights camping in the wilderness under the guidance of experienced Alpine experts.
There is only one thing more beautiful than Sun Valley in the summer: Sun Valley in the fall, with its balmy days and glorious colors. The summer crowds will have receded by September and the skiing fanatics won’t arrive until Thanksgiving. This is the time when you will hike through the mountains with hardly any “competition” (not that there really is any to begin with)–just you and your family and the majestic scenery of the Sawtooth Mountains.
