This is a special place. We always look forward to coming here and have returned over and over for a reason. It is a beautiful home in a gorgeous setting and Tom, the owner, is a splendid person in every way.

An incredible stay in Chocolate Gulch!

  • 5 of 5

We just left Chocolate Gulch after our second stay at Tom's incredible home. Just like our first stay, it was hard to leave because this home and the setting are remarkable! We spent our days enjoying the views, cooking up great meals in the kitchen, snowshoeing on the trails that are just down the road and nordic skiing in the valley. Tom is a fantastic host and this home is unlike any other we've visited!

Eagle, Idaho

The perfect spot to spend your vacation

  • 5 of 5

We spent a lovely week at this beautiful home. Our group ranged in age from 8 to 60+ and everybody was happy. Tom is a great host, he even made cookies and brownies for our group. The home is spacious enough for all of us to spread out and yet the gathering places, kitchen, great room, dining room invited us all to participate in group activities. The home is really close to Ketchum (maybe 10 minutes with Christmas traffic) but we enjoyed the seclusion of being a bit away from the busyness that comes with the holidays in Sun Valley. There is so much to do in Sun Valley and we did it all - skiing, ice skating, snow shoeing, sledding but our favorite memories may be just sitting at the table and enjoying Tom's beautiful home. Thank you!

Great house!

  • 5 of 5

This beautiful log home perfectly accommodated our family gathering. Everyone had their own space and private bathroom. Tom is the consummate host. There were fresh flower bouquets in every room. The home radiates Tom's love of nature and the northwest. We took advantage of the numerous hiking trails that originate right there at Chocolate Gulch. It couldn't have been more perfect. Highly recommended.

An incredible place to stay in a remarkable setting!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay in Chocolate Gulch was one that my family and I will never forget! We enjoyed the great comforts and amenities of the home and explored the trails and streams that are walking distance from the front porch. Tom's hospitality was above and beyond - he welcomed us, oriented us to the house, provided great guidance on areas to explore and was available throughout our stay for additional suggestions on local spots to visit. This is a truly unique home and we are looking forward to returning!

Great house!

  • 5 of 5

Tom's house was perfect for our Fourth of July vacation. We had 6 adults and 2 children and had beds to spare. We fly-fished on the Big Wood River, which is just a short walk away. We did hikes and runs on the trail system immediately adjacent to the house. We grilled out, played horseshoes, fed the hummingbirds, and thoroughly enjoyed everything the house had to offer, both inside and out. The house is the perfect distance from town for our daily excursions or dinners. We also went whitewater rafting on the Salmon river in Stanley and went to the 4th of July rodeo in Hailey.

Tom does a great job in welcoming guests and readily addresses any questions or concerns during the stay. The house and location could not have been any more beautiful and I would highly recommend Tom's house.

About Tom Pomeroy

I built my home myself & take a lot of pride in it. I've lived in Ketchum for many years and am active in the environmental community & many community non profits.

Ketchum Sun Valley is one of the best places in North America & i'm lucky to call this community my home.

Why Tom Pomeroy chose Ketchum

Living at the north end of the Wood River Valley is incredibly nice. Our end end of our valley has the least traffic, the darkest sky & the best access to the wilderness & wild country to the north. It's only a short drive into he Sawtooth Valley for hiking, skiing & solitude.

What makes this house unique

Private & scenic with incredibly trail access right off the west porch. The Chocolate Gulch, Oregon Gulch & Fox Creek trail system are all accessed just off my west porch. In the summer the catch & release fly fishing on the Big Wood River is excellent & just a short walk away.

In the winter the Harriman Trail for cross country skiing is also just a short 1/2 mile drive away. One can hike in the newly created Hemingway Boulder Wilderness area by just a short hop from my garage. It's so close you can even ride your bike to one of the trail heads!
