knob hill inn

The Arlberg meets Idaho at this hotel on Ketchum’s Main Street. A kacheloven (wood-burning stove bedecked with colorful tiles) warms the lobby and kaiserschmarren (an Austrian pancake) is a staple on the breakfast menu. Although the architecture is alpine, room décor recalls the California coast with bleached woods and pastel fabrics. Windows face the Sawtooth Range or the trails on Baldy. For a good value, book one of the four fireplace rooms, each with a wood-burning hearth. $250–$500;
