Perfect Vacation Home for Skiers and Non-Skiers Alike!

If you are staying in Park City, you can enjoy a perfect vacation and never even leave this house. The rooms are spacious and include more amenities than most regular homes. The big kitchen - with its marble counter tops and large island - could be featured on a cooking show. The comfy leather couches in the family room hold 6 adults with plenty of room for more kids, teens, and adults to sprawl out on the floor with cushions and faux fur throws, so everyone can play games and watch movies together. We plugged in an iPod and listened to great music on the stereo system while working a jigsaw puzzle on the coffee table. The laundry facilities on the sleeping floor are convenient and quiet, and the incredible bathrooms in the two master suites both have the feel of a day spa. The walk-in closets in the two master suites are large enough for two adults to actually change clothes in at the same time! We slept 8 people, ages 16-52, and had another parent and college student join us for the evening meal at the end of each day. With 10 people coming and going at different times, we all had easy access to the garage and house doors with the secret codes. The Fresh Market is walking distance, but we loaded up a week's worth of groceries for 10 people in the car for our first trip. After that, I walked with a backpack to the market on four different mornings to restock on bread, milk, etc. On our other two mornings, I exercised by walking to the shops on Main Street. Skiers have only a short, two-block walk up to the lodge and slopes, then we could warm up all our boots in front of our huge fireplace at night. Several people used the outdoor jacuzzi, but the rest of us opted for the jacuzzi tubs found in all three bathrooms. The downstairs view across the park was very pretty, but the views from the upstairs windows were even better. Somehow, the architect managed to incorporate both privacy and great views in the second story bed and bath windows. The owner was incredibly helpful, answering questions about kitchen appliances and iPod connections, and the property was sparkling clean when we arrived. The property manager stopped by twice during the week to check on us, then we wanted to donate our left-over groceries to a needy family and contacted the property manager again on the morning of our departure for advice. Definitely take the Snowed Inn Sleigh Ride and Dinner. Cowboy drivers and horses set the scene, and the food is delicious!
