When legendary musician, CAROLE KING — holder of four Grammys and a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame — composed her Idaho chronicle of the Old West to the tune of a western ranch an hour north of Sun Valley, she outdid herself. Her peaceable kingdom of 128 majestic acres enveloped by National Forest at the mouth of Warm Springs Creek in the Salmon River country is a triumph of traditional comfort. The captivating centerpiece is a baronial log lodge of 7,300 square feet that wraps its arms around you with hearth-warmed wonder. Counterpointing the masterfully orchestrated settings of wood and stone, its dramatic windows frame the mountain panoramas to perfection. A creekside hideaway and caretaker’s home share the exalted surroundings. King’s professional recording studio is a musician’s dream, offering an inspired oasis with views that stretch forever. For the finale, guests are welcomed western style in several charmingly sequestered guest cabins complemented with equestrian facilities, a swimming pool, and two geothermal pools.
