Nestled in the wonderful location of Sun Valley, the Knob Hill Inn is the final piece for a wonderful stay in this hidden gem. As I walked into the inn or more of a chalet, it was easy to see the small details – the most important ones. When you come in there is a crackling wood fire, fresh baked cookies, and a warm smile there to greet you. It felt as if we were in someone’s own home – something I absolutely adore when I stay at a hotel.
The Knob Hill is situated about a five minute walk from the heart of Ketchum, Idaho. Overlooking the infamous Baldy Hill (ski resort), it really could not be in a better location. With 29 newly renovated rooms, the atmosphere is charming and intimate. The staff recognizes you, knows what you like, and creates an experience tailored to your wants and needs. Every morning starts with a complimentary breakfast downstairs featuring coffee, fruit, dishes to prepare you for any activity, and my personal favorite, a pancake machine! One of the best perks of staying at the Knob Hill Inn and the one I used the most during my stay was the shuttle service. Shuttle service really ought to be defined though. When I say shuttle service, I am not speaking of an overcrowded van with swinging doors, I am talking about a personal driver in a new Yukon who drives you to pretty much wherever you want to go in Ketchum. They will take you into town, to the slopes, pick you up and more.
This boutique winter chalet has the amenities that round out a ski weekend or week perfectly. With an enclosed pool, hot tub, and steam room there is no better way to apres-ski – I found myself in the hot tub almost every single night. Downstairs in the Inn there is an amazing restaurant called the Grill at Knob Hill that features many local favorites like salmon and a great steak which means you don’t have to travel far for food. One unique amenity the Inn offers is an “outfitting” for skis that come to you – the hotel arranges with a company to come and bring the rentals to you to help remove the hassle of going to the shop.
So I have been saving the best for last, the rooms. My mind was blown away when I walked into our room, the Sun Valley Suite. At first I thought I had seen the whole place, but no as we walked around the corner there was more! The separated living space from the bedroom made it so we could be completely spread out and have an area for everything. I love having a sitting area that is not close to bed – this is the details that make it feel like home. The bathroom was top notch with marble and amenities like L’Occitane products. At night, the staff would come up and light the wood-burning fireplace for us, making it a perfect place for a cuddle on the couch. The spacious and luxurious furniture created an experience not to forget.
Overall the stay at the Knob Hill Inn was memorable and left us feeling relaxed and excited to come back. Whether you are making your way to Sun Valley in the winter or summer, this hotel is the place to spend your holidays.
