SLOPESIDE REAL LOG HOME SPECTACULAR VIEW / HOT TUB UNDER THE STARS

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.

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..

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.

The Owner purchased this house in 2006

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

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.

FANTASTIC SPOT WITH SUPER VIEWS AND OUTSTANDING LOCATION

  • 5 of 5
We could not have been happier with this place at Powder mountain. This was our 7th year at Powder and our first time staying on top of the mountain. We had 5 guys on the trip and could have handled 2 more no problem. Dave was fantastic with getting us setup at the house and always around if we needed anything. The log home was perfect for our group with all it had to offer. Views from the great room and deck are fantastic. Very short walk to the parking lot and you can actually ski back to the house off the cat. Home had everything we needed and the owners were so easy to work with, it was effortless. As always, Powder Mountain does not disappoint with its endless terrain and spectacular hikes. We will be back for year 8 next year.

Owner's Response: John, we were so happy to have your group in our home. We love true Powmainians. I'm glad you chose our home to book, and that it was everything you had hoped for. I wish I skied as well as you and your group to be able to enjoy the hiking and back country. Dave is a true treasure for me and out guest. To be there to help guests find new things even if it is their 8th time on the mountain is amazing. We look forward to seeing you again next year. As for now, keep up the snow dancing...I'm going back out next week. :)

Until next year!

SPECTACULAR MOUNTAIN HOME

  • 5 of 5
This was our second stay at Donna's beautiful mountain home and the home only keeps getting better. Donna is a joy to work with and does everything possible to make your stay easy and enjoyable. The home is beautifully appointed with first class bedding, and a beautiful kitchen fully stocked with all amenities, unlike a lot of rentals. The home is spacious and comfortable and the owners have gone to great lengths to think of everything one could use and need for a ski vacation. Dave, who works at Powmow and also assists with the property is a real gem and great guy who is always close by. This is a first class property run by first class people. You won't be disappointed.

Owner's Response: Paul, it is always my pleasure to make everyone's stay as enjoyable as I can. Dave is a true gem and we could not have a better person to manage our home. He is my diamond on the mountain. We love having wonderful guests who love our home and the mountain as much as we do. Especially guests who really know how to snow dance..you know what I'm talking about. Secrets like that cannot be revealed, as what happens on the mountain, stays on the mountain. One of these days I hope our paths cross, but until then I can only hope that you and group will keep returning to our home. Then we can keep on sending funny emails to each other. Thanks for taking such good care of my baby, and being such good guests....until next time. Cheers D

MARCH SKI VACATION

  • 5 of 5
Our group of 8 ski buddies had an amazing week at your log home. The log home was beautiful and just what we all needed for a fabulous vacation which included great food (we hired a chef) hot tub oh so much fun..... convenient to the mountain even though we lacked a little snow for ski out but able to ski in a few times. The shuttle stopped for us at the bottom of drive - everything was perfect and we are looking forward to our return trip in 2014. We can not thank you enough as well as Dave and his family who took care of any of our questions immediately. I would recomment your Log Home to anyone that is looking for a "REAL" ski vacation....so Awesome - even though I had an accident on the last day and in rehab at this time.... can't wait to get back on my skis @ Powder Mtn. Just an added note the Ski Patrol @ Powder Mtn are the "VERY BEST".

Owner's Response: Dottie, We loved having your group, and since we are facebook friends it was great to see the pictures of your vacation as it happened. The people on the mountain are so friendly and helpful. that is exactly why we went out one year and never left! We agree, Dave and his family as well as the ski patrol are the best. I am hoping for a speedy recovery so you can get back to snow dancing. We look forward to you coming back. Already have your dates blocked! cheers

My family and I rented this house for 6 days and absolutely loved it! The owner (Donna) and caretaker (Dave and his family) are awesome and extreamly organized and helpful. The description and pictures are 100% accurate (except that the house is even nicer in person!). My twin daughters (8 years old), loved the downstairs game area and of course we all enjoyed the hot tub which sits right outside your door on the deck. This home is truly amazing and extreamly comfortable and clean. Another added perk is that Dave and his family manage and run the Powder Mountain ski shop and they were a huge help with some some hardware issues that we encountered with our ski/snowboard equipment. We will rent this house every year if its available!!.

We all look forward to your return next year. I've got your dates blocked already! Remember to start doing your snow dance early :)
