As Ernest Hemingway's marriage to Pauline Pfeiffer began to dissolve in 1939, he received an invitation from the owner of the Sun Valley Lodge in Idaho to stay at the resort. The owner thought it would be good publicity, and Hemingway stayed with his writer/journalist girlfriend Martha Gellhorn in Room 206 as he worked on the novel For Whom the Bell Tolls.

Hemingway loved the Idaho landscape and people, and returned to the area often to hunt game and write.
