We have spent most of our lives out doors loving to camp, hike, ski, wake board, snowboard & enjoy everything the mountains & Utah has to offer. It has been our goal to spend as much time as possible together as a family!

Honi Thompson purchased this cabin in 2009

This location is amazing! Moments from both solitude & Brighton ski resorts. It takes us only minutes to get up the canyon to the cabin which makes it simple to still get grocery's or hit the restaurants. With Guardsman's Pass minutes away we can go snowmobiling easily. Tubing is minutes away as well. In the summer their are so many hikes we cant keep up!

We are in the heart of moose territory! We are constantly spotting them. Our deck off the back is a haven for wildlife it has a spectacular view of nothing but the mountainside & we love to feed all the birds especially blue jays, chipmunks & squirrels. The hot tub also looks right out into the woods and mountainside.

GREAT GETAWAY LOCATION

  • 5 of 5
We rented the Mangy Moose for a high school friends' ski trip.

The cabin has great character and fits perfectly with its mountain surroundings. Lots of room, fully furnished, and everything worked!

Honi and Dave, the owners, were great communicators and were very interested in ensuring our group had a great time.

We had a great time and I hope the Mangy Moose will be available the next time I have a group of visitors in town.

Thanks for great vacation accommodations Honi and Dave!

BEAUTIFUL MOUNTAIN RETREAT!

  • 5 of 5
We got Last minute reservations and the owners were wonderful. They worked with us with what we needed and had great hospitality throughout our stay(even when they were sick with a cold!). The cabin was rustic & cozy but big enough for lots of people. We could get in and out in the snow with no problem(thanks for working so hard clearing our path). The kids loved the downstairs with the slot machine & Foosball table. We loved feeding the birds, playing in the snow, getting warm in the jacuzzi etc... The kids loved getting pulled on the sled by the owners. Thanks for the extra perks! We played games & watched family movies by the fire and so much more. Thanks for the wonderful time and memories formed. God Bless

HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO ME

  • 5 of 5
My girlfriend and I recently stayed 4 nights at The Mangy Moose for my birthday and skied Brighton and Solitude. It far exceeded our expectations and Honi and Dave went out of their way to make sure of that. The cabin is intimate and cozy for a couple but could also comfortably sleep 10 due to the amount of beds (all beds fit into 2 rooms so 5 couples would not have their own private room but a very large bachelor(ette) party or a double date or a roomy 'just the 2 of us' get-away works perfectly). There was a large amount of firewood inside for the fireplace, which was burning constantly for us. The hot tub was fantastic and very nice to climb into after skiing. The kitchen was roomy and had all the items needed to cook each meal. Dave even let us park our truck in the garage to get out of the big snow Big Cottonwood Canyon is known for. Speaking of trucks, make sure you take the 4x4 requirement seriously in winter months. Both the road service (and Dave) do stellar work to keep the roads clear but 4 wheel drive is an absolute must for safely getting around the canyon.
Now for the part that's not advertised on VRBO. Honi stayed in touch throughout our stay to make sure we had all we needed, even scheduling a hot tub service to make a well-working hot tub work perfectly. She texted with local ski deals and fireworks planned, allowed us a late checkout, and rallied the neighbors for a bonfire on the back of the property, complete with tunes and libations galore. All this to say, you can't find a personal touch like this hardly anywhere. Honi and Dave truly want you to have a great time in a great cabin in one of the world's greatest ski areas and real vacation spots you'll find. If it's nightlife and trendy apres ski activities you are after, Park City is for you; but if you want twice the snow for half the price and room to breathe, the other side of the Wasatch is your place.
Thanks guys for having us in your wonderful cabin for my 39th birthday; I hope to rally more troops to stay at The Mangy Moose for my 40th!

A GREAT STAY!

  • 4 of 5
For the record, the only thing that kept my review from reaching "Excellent" status was the lack of a wireless internet connection. Outside of that glitch, the place has all the amenities we have come to expect in out winter sojourn domicile. Property managers are on site and wonderful people who allow you the privacy you deserve and help if you need it. A rustic retreat that makes it easy to relax after a hard day on the slopes

OWNERS ARE GREAT- NICE PLACE!

  • 5 of 5
we stayed for a short week at the cabin. the description is accurate and true. the place was great for our family, and the owners were fantastic- they were great to work with during our reservation and stay. We would definitely return to this cabin for its excellent location, the cozy feel of the place, and the ease of working with the owners.

EXCELLENT PLACE FOR FIRST TIMERS

  • 5 of 5
My kids wanted snow out their door and they got it! Cozy place super close to Brighton where my kids enjoyed their first time on the mtn. Wood burning stove kept the place toastie. Very clean upon our arrival as was the hot tub and cabin was fully stock. Even did a little rippin on the plowed driveway. Honi and Dave were awesome and made sure our stay was perfect. Saw some pretty blue birds. We will definitely be back for more! Thanks for the great memories!!
