Just last week, a Saturday night dinner at the Ram Restaurant in Sun Valley Village seemed like a great idea. One member of our party was anxious to try the nightly $25 special of Hungarian Goulash, and an evening spent at the beautiful eatery, accompanied by live piano music, and noshing on delicious food sounded perfect. Our decision proved even more prescient when the server announced that the Ram was running a spring special: fondue for two (free!) with the purchase of any two entrees. It was a bubbling, gold prize at the end of the proverbial rainbow!
Fondue for two with...
Ahhh, the shoulder season. Long days, plenty of sunshine, plenty of parking, and great deals. Now is the time to spring into savings! While the flowers bloom and the trees bud, you can enjoy great specials on great times. There are so many ways to embrace the season.
If you are a local, Sun Valley invites you to pretend you are here for your dream vacation, or staycation as it were. Wood River Valley residents may stay at the Sun Valley Lodge now through June 4, for as little as just $180 per night. In addition to a luxurious room with all the amenities, resort guests can splash in the heated outdoor pool surrounded by views of Baldy, work out in the fitness center, and take advantage of a free appetizer at the Duchin Lounge with the purchase of a drink. In addition, you may want to book a rejuvenating facial or massage at the world-class Spa, enjoy a delicious meal at Gretchen’s (especially on a Thursday or Friday – see below for more information), and just escape without having to go anywhere.
This spring, lodging stay and play specials abound. Enjoy a beautiful room at the resort and so much more!
Other spring hotel savings abound. With Mother’s Day coming up quickly this weekend, it’s not too late to book the ultimate experience for the woman who does so much for everyone. Starting at $340, your mom or wife can indulge by checking into a beautiful room at the Sun Valley Lodge and be welcomed with a chocolate rose. When she is not sleeping in (the package comes with a late checkout of 1 p.m. – maybe the ultimate gift!), she will be able to apply a $75 credit at the Spa each night of her stay. A body treatment, massage, or spa pedicure is the perfect way to thank her for taking care of everyone and everything the other 364 days a year! This offer is available from May 12 - 14, 2017. Taxes and resort fee are included.
