PERFECT location for your ski vacation!
Our 3 bedroom / 3.5 bath condo, including a kids’ loft, is located in exclusive Upper Deer Valley and is approximately 300 yards from the Sterling lift. Walk 4 minutes along snow-plowed pathways right to the finest ski slopes in North America. We are quietly nestled right across the street from the Stein Eriksen Lodge and the Silver Lake Village area. The location is very convenient to skiing, shops, spas and restaurants, yet it is also quiet and secluded.
Our totally renovated non-smoking vacation home is freshly decorated in a mountain casual style and we have redesigned everything for maximum comfort. The home is three levels with 2,500 square feet of living space. The total remodel included all floors, walls, cabinets, countertops, fixtures, and appliances throughout the home. The audio system consists of 4 zones for your musical enjoyment and we have installed 5 Samsung HDTVs.
The upper level consists of the master suite with a king bed and a sitting area with fireplace. The master bath is well appointed with a very large steam shower and a granite double vanity. Also on the upper level is a generous sitting/loft area with a flat screen LCD TV and both Nintendo Wii and Xbox gaming consoles for the “kids” in your group. There is also a nice selection of books and DVDs for your enjoyment.
The main level features an over-sized gourmet kitchen with professional grade cooking equipment and custom knotty alder cabinetry. The kitchen is completely open to the great room and dining room and provides a cozy setting for amazing gatherings with friends and family. Enjoy a stocked kitchen with all of the tools necessary to prepare a great meal after a long day of mountain fun. The dining room seats 8 with room for 3 more at the kitchen bar. The great room has a rich stone wood burning fireplace with a flat screen LCD TV and access to the outdoor deck complete with a barbeque grill. Also on the main level is bedroom 2, including a queen bed and built-in bunks. This bedroom has a full bath with granite vanity and a river rock shower. A powder bath is also available on this level off the dining room.
The lower level is the location for bedroom 3 with a queen bed, full bath with a granite vanity, and built-in bunks. This bedroom also features a stone fireplace and an LCD flat panel TV. The top-of-the-line 7 person hot tub is located just outside and is protected from the elements by the overhead deck. This level also hosts our 2 car garage, mudroom area with boot warmers, and a full size front-load washer/dryer.
We have incorporated many of our favorite features into our Deer Valley home. All beds are new for 2009 and are furnished with high thread count linens that will help to ensure a great night’s sleep. All bathrooms boast resort quality cotton towels and are stocked with all necessary amenities, including hair dryers.
We hope you will enjoy our mountain home for an amazing vacation and the special memories to be created in Deer Valley.
The Sleeping Arrangements-
Sleeps 10 and all bedrooms have private baths.
Upper level (sleeps 2) – King bed

Lower level (sleeps 4) - Queen bed plus built-in bunks
In addition to the main rooms, little ones will enjoy activities in the kids’ loft area with the latest gaming technology (Wii & Xbox) and a flat screen LCD TV. Our home is also furnished with a pack-and-play, a high chair, and grand supply of games, books puzzles, and DVDs.
For those just learning to ski or wanting to improve their abilities, Deer Valley boasts one of the country’s top rated friendliest ski schools. We have found the Deer Valley Ski school to be an amazing experience for our children.
The Area Amenities-
As mentioned earlier, Silver Lake Village is a very short and flat walk (4 minutes maximum) along a snow plowed path. Be sure to check the distance to skiing as some of the complexes are a rather long hike to the lifts. The village area is very nice and is home to world class dining at Mariposa and family friendly dining at Royal Street Café. Venture across the street to the Stein Eriksen Lodge and enjoy dinner at the fine Glitretind Restaurant or enjoy their full-service spa.
The town of Park City is a short bus ride or a 4 minute drive downhill. There you will find a wide assortment of shopping and dining opportunities.
The World class skiing at Deer Valley-
For consecutive years 2008-2012 Deer Valley Resort was rated the #1 ski resort in North America by readers of SKI Magazine. It is by far our favorite place to ski. The personal service of the Deer Valley personnel will astound you. The on-mountain food is superb, so don’t expect soggy burgers and stale fries for lunch. One major benefit of our location in Upper Deer Valley is there are no crowds at the rental shops or lift ticket windows in Silver Lake Village. You can literally get “first tracks” for 2 or 3 runs before the other skiers arrive up the lift from the lower Snowpark base area. This is because there is very limited public parking in Silver Lake. Another amenity that the resort provides is a free ski valet service so that you can store your skis,boots and poles right at the mountain overnight. Deer Valley also limits lift ticket sales during peak times and as a result the mountain is never overcrowded. As you will see, it’s all about customer service at Deer Valley.
Please note that Deer Valley is a skier’s mountain and snowboarding is not allowed. For variety (and snowboarding), Park City Mountain is a 10 minute drive and The Canyons (location of the 2002 Olympic downhill) is a 15 minute drive; both of which are also world class ski destinations (just not #1 in North America for 4 years in a row).
No smoking and no pets, please!
What a fantastic time we had staying in this condo during our 2014 ski trip to Deer Valley. The furnishings were comfortable, the kitchen has a big refrigerator and a great oven and cooktop along with pots, pans and utensils. There is a nice view of the huge TV above the fireplace or into the dining room from the cooking area or from the kitchen sink. Seating for 8 at the dining room table was just right for sharing meals together during our stay. The walk to Silver Lake was very easy and the complimentary overnight ski and boot storage kept us from having to carry skis, poles and boots back to the condo every night.
No ski trip is complete without a hot tub and the one for this unit had great jets to help soothe our body aches every day. It was very comfortable for 4 individuals.
The owner was easy to work with and I'd highly recommend staying here on a future ski trip.
Location, location, location!!! We just completed a 6 night Spring Break trip for two families consisting of 4 adults and 5 children. We use VRBO for most trips and couldn’t have been more pleased with this recently updated townhome. This was our first time to stay mid mountain and we realized this allows for maximum ski time. Silver Lake lifts are only a 4 minute walk. Also, Stein Eriksen, Utah’s only Forbes Five Star, AAA Five-Diamond hotel is across the street. We did not rent a car and it worked out great. $15 taxi ride in you desire to visit Park City or bus for free.
It was a treat to have heated floors on the lower level when entering after a day of skiing. The bonus was the boot/glove warmers. Also, the hot tub was largest model I have ever been in. It has room for 7 and was definitely a high-end model. There is an area behind the hot tub where the children played in the snow.
After a hard day of skiing, we would end up at the home, build a roaring fire, turn on the surround sound system and open up a bottle of red wine. The den has a deep leather L shaped sectional. Above the “wood” fireplace is an extra large flat screen.
The kitchen and all appliances were recently updated. The gas burner stove has an attachable grill plate that was very convenient when cooking a large breakfast before hitting the slopes. Restaurants in DV and Park City are great. Normally, we go out to dinner, but the home was so comfortable, we decided to cook and not waste time in restaurants. We enjoyed the open floor plan looking into the den. Plenty of room with the bar stools and large kitchen table. There is also a charcoal Weber grill on the large deck. The faucet has an “instant” hot water lever making it easy for hot chocolate or tea.
The upstairs Master Suite has a fireplace and king size bed. The bathroom has a large steam shower. Outside the Master is an entertainment area with TV and games. A ladder takes you to a loft where 2 of the children hung out and even slept a couple of nights. The other 2 bedrooms were spacious. Beds were really comfortable.
The owners were very friendly and easy to work with. We have rented multiple times in DV. Without a doubt, we were thrilled when arriving and only have good things to say about the townhome. We look forward to our next trip.
We just completed our four night stay at this condo in Upper Deer Valley and could not have been more impressed.
The condo is recently renovated, with amazing furnishings and finishes. From the heated entryway floors, to the beautiful hand-scraped wood staircase, to the TVs, jacuzzi, and HUGE steam shower, everything is first-class.
The kitchen and living areas are great, with an open floor plan and views of the fireplace/TV from the kitchen, large dining table, and big leather couch. All the appliances and cookware are high-end (Thermador, Dacor, Bosch). There's a nice half bath and 1 BR/BA (bedroom has queen size bed and 2 additional built-in bunks and the shower is done with nice pebble tiles) on this level.
The Master Suite is on the top floor, with a fireplace, king size bed, and a HUGE steam shower (big enough for 4 people easily). There is also an entertainment area on this floor, with some video games, board games, and a sneaky little loft.
The ground floor has another BR/BA with a queen size bed and two built-in bunks as well. This is also where the washer/dryer is located, as well as the changing room to get to the jacuzzi. There is access to the garage off of this floor, and the garage can certainly accommodate a large SUV (we were able to get our Yukon in there). Recommend renting a car if you plan to head to Main Street or to other ski resorts as it's about a $20 taxi ride (only about 2 miles) to Main St. from the condo.
Other nice touches: WiFi throughout the house, Boot heaters, charcoal grill on the deck, management company delivered more firewood on request, plenty of food staples stocked in the pantry, 5 min walk to Silverbird lift at DV, 3 min walk to Stein Erickson lodge, could easily sleep 10 in beds and another few on couches.
Four adults and 3 kids very much enjoyed their stay here. The unit has been fully remodeled and the pictures are accurate. It was very clean and the kitchen was well equipped. All of the beds were comfortable. It is about a 5 minute walk to the mid-mountain lifts. There is a small yard out the back where the kids can play in the snow.
There were only a couple downsides to the unit. Since it is older (but remodeled), there is not much closet space as compared to newer construction. Also the hot tub is down underneath the deck and get snowed it. It felt a bit like sitting in a cave.
Overall, however, the property is excellent and the owners were a pleasure to work with. We will definitely consider this property again.
The house worked well for the 6 of us. It was the children's first trip skiing out West and the quick walk to the mountain, the large, relaxing hot tub, and comfortable sleeping arrangements made it a truly wonderful vacation. It was an easy walk for the non-skier in the group who met us for lunch everyday at the Royal Street Cafe and its close proximity to the Silverlake Lodge made for a quick trip to the ski and boot storage facilities in the mornings. The kitchen had everything you would want to cook a nice breakfast, lunch or dinner. We even used the charcoal grill one night to cook up some steaks.
I would recommend this property to any single family or pair of families looking for a private rental that is walking distance to mid mountain. We will stay here again if our travels bring us back to Deer Valley.
We stayed here with 4 adults and 3 children and it was extremely comfortable. The house is very nicely laid out with wonderful amenities. It is a close walk to the lifts. The kids loved the loft area for playing with their American Girl dolls. We all loved the hot tub after a long day on the mountain. It truly felt like a nice home away from home. Owners were a pleasure to deal with.
