Browning House is a classic Arts and Crafts-period mansion immaculately restored to its 1911 elegance, located within the Eccles National Historic District. With rich hardwoods, stained glass and painted murals, this glorious house was originally built by the family of famed firearms inventor John Browning, and superb craftsmanship inspired by the Arts and Crafts Movement is brimming throughout.

For ultimate relaxation, enjoy our steam room and private hot-tub, relax on our covered outdoor smoking deck with fire pit and Bose sound system, enjoy a game of billiards or watch the big game on the 64-inch flat-screen TV. Browning House is ideal for ski vacations and family reunions.

Browning House is situated on almost one-half acre with lush flowers, trees and gardens. There is plenty of room for outdoor yard games, or a patio party for up to 50. There is an enclosed kennel area where furry family members are welcome. There is off-street parking for up to seven vehicles.

May 2014 Visit to Ogden

  • 5 of 5
We were in the Ogden / Roy area for our granddaughters wedding and stayed at the Browning House for 5 nights. It was wonderful!! There were 12 of us staying in the house and it was great for all the couples to have their own rooms upstairs and for the kids to share the two bedrooms downstairs. In addition to those that traveled to Utah there are 6 that live there and we used the kitchen and backyard grill/patio area during out stay rather than going to their house. The back yard area at the Browning House has so much space to move around and the fire pit is a terrific added benefit.

Jerry, the owner, is a couple doors away for anything that you need - very nice person. Thank you Jerry for doing such a great job on the restoration of this property!

Do not hesitate to use this property if you are visiting the Ogden area and want the comforts of home, you won't regret it!!

Awesome Wedding week in Ogden

  • 5 of 5
We were in Ogden for my son's wedding. We had a very large group consisting of my wife and I, our grand daughter, our two sons and their girlfriends, my mother-in-law, brother-in law, sister-in-law as well as two very good friends of our son and new daughter-in-law.
Ages ranged from 9 to 90 years of age. I am not exaggerating at all when I say that the "Browning House" had something for everyone.
From outside you would never believe the square footage listed for this house, but once you are inside and being given the tour, you will be amazed. There is a large room with a pool table, 2 futons and a good sized flat screen tv. There is a library which also holds the best collection of music cd's I've ever seen. (Something for everyone). 4 spacious bedrooms upstairs along with 2 bathrooms. 2 good sized bedrooms downstairs where there is also some workout equipment, and an additional full bathroom. On the main level with the pool table is also a 1/2 bath, large kitchen with all you need already there, a small dining area, a formal dining area, an enormous entertainment room with a 60+" large flat screen tv. (Awesome room). There ia a laundry room with a full size washer and dryer along with an additional counter-top electric range.
Now for my favorite areas. The backyard area has an open porch with a gas fire pit with enough seating for 10 to 12 people. Just below the porch is a hot tub that will hold around 6 or 7 people. (Nice!) There are tables and chairs all around the deck by the hot tub and a gas grill at your disposal.
While we were there the owner was in the process of installing a Koi pond that promises to be very nice when finished.
As for the location, you are just minutes away from the main strip through town as well as Union Station. A short drive gets you into a very scenic drive through the canyon toward Eden and Powder Mountain. You can walk trails, hike, bike, ski, water ski, wake board... name it! Being within 10 minutes to the highway also gives you ease of travel to surrounding areas such as Antelope Island (neat) and the "Golden Spike Museum" in Promnitory. (a bit of a ride but worth it). Take in movies or go to The Soloman Center on Washington St, which has family entertainment for everybody. Shopping and dining are easily found as well. Walmart, Costco, Grocery chains...are all close by.
Trust me when I say that you will never find a more charming house at this reasonable of a rate anywhere. It will not disappoint!

Good hom efor a large group

  • 4 of 5
The house is old, and so a little quirky. But if you have a large group looking to stay in Ogden and ski Powder Mtn or Snowbasin, this is a great option. Upstairs shower isn't very functional as the shower head is very low - basically a children only shower. Nice shower in the basement though. Nice great room, kitchen and pool room. Hot tub was great too.

Thanks Jerry for providing a great place to stay, the house was clean, warm and had all the items to make our stay very enjoyable. With four large bedrooms upstairs and extra rooms in the basement we all had large rooms with spare rooms to have an extra friend to stay for a night. Its location is ideal to access all of the ski fields that Salt-lake has to offer with no more the 1 1/4 hrs travel to the Cottonwood canyons or less if you visit Parkcity or Powder Mountain :-) Oh and the Spa was a treat for our punished body's.
I would recommend the house if you want to base you self in a house, cook a few meals or eat out. The supermarkets are close by and main part of Ogden is just down the road.
Looking forward to rebooking for next year.

Super Bowl fun

  • 5 of 5
The house was amazing. We had a blast, there were 16 of us and never once did we feel crowded. The only knock I had was that the Broncos didn't show up for the game either way it didn't affect our party mood
