This classic lodge showcases modern style in a rustic natural setting.
This impressive, inviting lodge dates back to 1936, when luminaries such as Ernest Hemingway helped bring Sun Valley into the limelight. It is considered the centerpiece of the Sun Valley Resort, which also contains the Sun Valley Inn, condominiums and cottages. Each season tends to draw its own type of crowd: families in the summer, ski groups in the winter and conference-goers in the spring and fall. Décor in the guest rooms and suites is bright and fresh, and a wide variety of accommodations includes Celebrity Suites with archival photographs that pay tribute to past guests. If you're a literary history buff, ask for the suite in which Hemingway wrote before he built his own home here. The bowling alley and atrium-style swimming pool area date to the lodge's origins. Guests can enjoy a cocktail by the Lodge Pool after a day of skiing on Baldy or Dollar Mountains. The Lodge Dining Room is noted for its wine list. The outdoor evening ice show is a popular draw during the summer months.
