FEATURED PROPERTY: Limelight Hotel Residences | Ketchum, Idaho
Of the thirteen condo residences, ten have sold and only three are available as of the writing of this blog post. So now is an unprecedented opportunity to own a private residence on one the top floors of the new Limelight Hotel in downtown Ketchum. I describe the architecture as "mountain modern" and the finishes and amenities include:
Floor-to-ceiling windows with expansive mountain views
White oak wood floors
Textural stone and tile
Dark metal accents
Kohler and Grohe plumbing fixtures
Wolf and Sub-Zero kitchen appliances
Heated bathroom floors
Generous ceiling and heights for a very open feeling
Large outdoor terraces and balconies with a snow-melt system for indoor/outdoor living throughout much of the year
Dedicated underground, heated parking
Amenities include: heated pool, fire-pit, fitness center, cruiser and fat tire bikes, storage lockers at the hotel and at the base of River Run.
A stylish furniture package is available, including turnkey accessories.

Here's my Top 10 List for why I like the Limelight Hotel and Limelight Residences in downtown Ketchum, Idaho.
#1 The Limelight Hotel loves dogs. Even their website says "Pet-friendly is a bit of an understatement." Who doesn't like that? Okay, I admit that some people don't like dogs, but I hope they know that Ketchum really is Dog-Town USA.
#2 Outdoor Plaza - This is where the gang hangs during Ketchum Alive breaks. Already looking forward to summer just for that, but only after we get more snow and have had a terrific ski season!
#3 The Limelight Hotel has a wood-fired pizza oven. It's great to go to a movie and then amble over to the Limelight for a cocktail and a slice of thin-curst pizza.
#4 The Limelight is a little more edgy than other ski lodges. You won't find elk or deer mounts on the walls - the Limelight Hotel features a contemporary art collection by international artists.
#5 The Limelight Hotel and the Limelight Hotel Residences are as modern as a hotel or condo can get, but with the laid-back reputation that fits right in with Kethcum. The decor and architecture is hip, yet not the least bit fussy. It's mountain modern!
#6 The hotel caters to tourist and locals alike. The guests mingle with the locals and the locals oogle over the guest's dogs.
#7 #8 #9 and #10 - Since this IS a real estate blog, I would be remiss not to highlight the beauty of the Limelight Residences. Check out the photos below and then click on the MLS listing at the bottom for more details.
