Overview

Powder Mountain House Rental Photos and Description

House, 4 Bedrooms + Loft, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 8-10)

Welcome to our real log home located in the middle of Powder Mountain Resort’s 5,500 acres of Utah powder snow. We built this home because we love the solitude and friendliness of Powder Mountain, not to mention the incredible powder! Ski out the door to Sundown lift or take a short walk to Timberline Lift. Either way there are no lockers, no buses, and no parking spots to fight for. Enjoy the groomed trails, which are not overcrowded or the fresh powder of the back country. Powder Mountain was voted #1 in snow by Ski Magazine's readers in 2005. If you want to hit more than one resort while in Utah, Snow Basin is 30 min. away, renowned for its verticals and home of the 2002 men’s Olympic downhill.

We’ve built a dream log home, hand crafted inside and out of huge lodge pole pine logs. Inside we have made comfort and beauty our prerogative. After a great day of skiing, curl up with a book in front of the fire and enjoy the panoramic mountain view of the sunset, sky and ski slopes through the vast windows from the great room and master loft suite. At night, enjoy the view of the resort’s night skiing, a favorite with locals and visitors alike. The basement has a mudroom equipped with a washer and drier and a boot drier to make sure everything is ready for the next days run. There is a two car garage for parking and stowing your gear.

If you love to cook the kitchen is well equipped with quality cookware, fine appliances, granite counter tops and a breakfast bar. Whip up a great breakfast before you hit the slopes and a dinner to celebrate a day of skiing and riding. A BBQ grill is available for those who enjoy cooking outdoors. Take a break in the middle of the day and warm your toes by the fire for lunch at home or at one of the restaurants on the mountain. If you choose not to shop, our mountain hosts will shop for you, before and during your stay. The Valley Market is 20 minutes away and five miles down the road is Wolf Creek Lodge and the town of Eden with a variety of dining, from casual to gourmet.

Quality beds from Simmons Beauty Rest and cozy furniture throughout the house are provided for your comfort. Feather duvets are provided for each bed as well as a choice of medium or firm pillows. The master bedroom suite bath has a Jacuzzi tub and separate shower. The French doors open to the loft for a spectacular morning view of the mountain right from your king size bed. Downstairs has a fourth bedroom, which can be utilized for the privacy of a couple, or a family room for the kids, complete with its own bathroom, TV, and foosball table. A supply of games, books and puzzles for every age are provided.

In the summer you can enjoy the cool crisp mountain air and the quiet solitude of a mountain home. Enjoy views of the flora and fauna from every room in the house. We've seen deer wander by the kitchen window. Just minutes down the mountain, golf, fishing, hiking and boating are available in the beautiful upper Ogden valley. The deep blue Pineview Reservoir is a favorite summer recreation area. What a combination, the beauty of a lake with the snow-capped mountains in the background.

About Donna Nelson

Hi, we are Donna and Joel Nelson. Donna is a toy store owner and Joel is a musician living in Key West, Florida. We have 3 almost grown kids, a dog a cat, and a bird. We've been married 24 years.

Except for hurricanes, we love living in the keys and enjoying all the outdoor water activities.

Donna Nelson purchased this house in 2006

Why Donna Nelson chose Powder Mountain

We fell in love with Powder Mountain for it's natural beauty, deep powdery snow, friendly people and lack of crowds. We were fortunate enough to build our dream log home right on the mountain

What makes this house unique

In the middle of the resort, ski- in ski out. Very nicely furnished and appointed. Tremendous views of the slopes through giant windows. The beauty of a hand crafted log home. Drive to on a plowed road.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Donna, just wanted to send you a note about our stay at your home on Powder Mountain. Snow was good this year...although it was the first year in 7 years we didn't get dumped on. We realized how spoiled we are. The good news was it forced us to dig deeper. We hiked where the "tow" lift drops you off. That area above Cobabe Canyon (spelling?) is magical. Great tree runs, Deep pow and solitude and a Cat we had never tried.



We hired a guide this year and also found great areas in Powder country I that we had never explored....take a hard right after you cross the road and fresh tracks for three days :)



At the end of the last day I had to get one more run in. I took the Cat to the peak above the cabin and took the face to end the day with the goal of boarding into the Powder keg. At the bottom of the bowl I saw something round and brown crossing my intended trail. I put on the brakes just in time not to run over a VERY well fed Porcupine. It was gently snowing. The Porcupine eyed me and I decided to sit down 10 yards away. Snow found its way onto its pelt as it wobbled around me and the snow covered trees. We shared 5 minutes together, uninterrupted, with only the sound of snow settling on my shoulders...this could only happen in Powder Mountain. Imagine the 3,000 people that would have raced by me if I decided to stop for 5 minutes at Park City.

Powder mountain is one of the most special places on earth and frankly your home matches its perfection. I appreciate the opportunity to spend time there every year.



I would love to take the same week next year..

Great Stay

  • 5 of 5

We had a delightful stay at Log Heaven! It not only looked right out at the slopes of Powder Mountain, but with a little effort you could ski in/ski out as well. The rooms were very accommodating for our growing family, with married children and three small grandsons (anyone find a toy truck we left behind?) The furnishings were excellent - beautiful wood beds, attractive bed spreads, gorgeous tiled bathrooms, and comfortable couches. The kitchen was well furnished and the table fit 10! We enjoyed the TV, pool table and all the games. Also the hot tub on the deck. Dave offered all kinds of help, though we had no concerns or problems. A great ski place!

Our stay at Log Heaven was wonderful. A lovely cabin in a fantastic location. We enjoyed sitting around the fireplace chatting about our ski day adventures. The kitchen had everything our chefs could ever need. We will be back next season for sure. And Dave was a great help and now consider him our friend. Thanks Donna

Owner's Response: Thank you for being such wonderful guests. We are so happy you enjoyed our home. It is my happy place. I agree sitting in front of the fireplace reading and chatting is very warm and cozy. The mountain and the people are the best anywhere. We would love you have your family back again next year. Dave said you were wonderful. We'll stay in touch for you next years booking! cheers D

Excellent is only the beginning

  • 5 of 5

I can never truly express how wonderful our trip to this beautiful home was. I felt like a kid that had actually had a dream come true and then top that off with the magic of Christmas SNOW! Only in the movies do you see a family get up and find the most beautiful view of deep, powdery snow covered mountains on Christmas morning. Well, that's what we experienced and the unbelievable view through the huge windows of this home was incredible. Every thing about the trip was perfect: Beautiful home, perfect location to skiing and the nicest people we have ever met. The home had everything you would ever need to prepare meals and feel right at home. We never wanted to leave (except to cross the street to go skiing). The hot tub was a nightly ritual to ease the muscles after a fun day of skiing and the ability to ski right up to the back of the house was handy. This mountain and the powder conditions was the best skiing experience we have ever experienced. Thank you Donna; Thank you Dave! We hope to come back soon.

Spectacular home, beautiful mountain!

  • 5 of 5

We were fortunate to travel to Powder Mountain for the first time last January. We loved everything about skiing there. There were runs for every skiing ability, perfect powder, no crowds and breathtaking surroundings.

However what REALLY made the trip unforgettable is staying in this beautiful home! The views of the slopes are incredible from the huge windows, the layout is perfect, the beds are ultra comfy and the kitchen has everything you could possibly ask for. The fireplace was perfect for curling up with a good book while enjoying the spectacular views and the hot tub was heavenly after a full day on the slopes. We've skied for many, many years and this was hands down one of the best ski vacations we've ever had. Thanks Donna & Joel we will definitely be back!!!

Family Fun

  • 5 of 5

Great place to go skiing with family and friends. The log home is spacious...we had nine people. They have activities for the kids to do at night(games, cards, foos ball) and the hot tub was plenty big for everyone. We will be back next year for sure!
