Scout tips

  • The hotel is within walking distance of downtown Ketchum (about 5-7 mins).
  • When booking, request a north facing mountainside room for the best sunlight, sunsets and views.
  • Fireplace rooms are worth a little splurge.
  • A resort fee is charged per night to cover the cost of breakfast, bottled water, heated boot storage, Wi-Fi, on-demand shuttle and access to the gym at the YMCA. 


With just 29 rooms, the Knob Hill Inn provides an intimate and personalized experience – yet also the level of luxury you’d expect from a large hotel. The staff here are incredibly friendly, and they go out of their way to treat every guest like royalty.

The hotel’s architecture has been influenced by Austrian mountain chalets, which creates a feeling of cozy tranquility. Since it was built (in 1992) it has undergone several renovations, including a refurbishment of all the guestrooms. It might look like a traditional European chalet from the outside, but inside everything is decidedly modern and new.  

Scout loves the rooms that are generous in size, and come with comfortable, contemporary mountain-style furnishings. While all the rooms here are gorgeous, the fireplace rooms are a little larger in size, with a lovely sitting area and – as the name suggests – a wood-burning fireplace. (The fireplace is set every day by housekeeping). Most of the rooms come with a small wet bar with mini fridge for convenience, while the Baldy Two Bedroom Suite is the largest of the offerings and boasts a fantastic full kitchen.

The hotel’s restaurant, The Grill, is a popular choice for all visitors to the valley – and as a guest you’ll be given priority reservations. A full continental breakfast is included in the nightly rate, with buffet item offerings changing daily.

At the end of a hard day on the slopes you will love the hotel’s indoor pool, hot tub and sauna. And if for some reason you still have energy to burn, guests are given day passes to the nearby YMCA which features a large lap pool and gym equipment.

Although the Knob Hill Inn is within easy walking distance of all of Ketchum’s downtown offerings, the hotel offers an on-demand shuttle in the evenings to the town. There is also a shuttle service for Bald and Dollar mountains in the mornings and afternoons.
