About Honi Thompson

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

Why Honi Thompson chose Brighton

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!

What makes this cabin unique

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.

I had such a great time staying here in January that I had to return. The hosts, Honi and Dave, are such wonderful people. They make you feel like family each and every time. The cabin is well stocked with everything you could possible need, just add snowboards and food and you are set for a great time. We even had a momma moose and baby stop by for a visit while we were there. Wonderful place, great amenities, awesome location. Can't wait to visit again and again.

Great place to stay for Brighton or Solitude!!!

  • 5 of 5

We've stayed at the Mangy Moose cabin for 3 years running and had a wonderful experience every time. The cabin is well stocked, clean and has an eclectic factor that is flat-out FUN! It really adds to the feeling of being on vacation. We usually cook at the cabin and the kitchen has everything needed. Our kids love the cabin and the surrounding area. After skiing all day, they look forward to building sledding jumps, snow forts, etc. and their setting is perfect for it. Honi and Dave are friendly and accommodating. 5 STARS!!!!!

Loved my time at the Mangy Moose

  • 5 of 5

What can I say, The Mangy Moose has tons of character! I visited Brighton and Solitude for 4 days of skiing/snowboarding with a group of friends. We were within 5 minutes drive time to both mountains. The cabin itself fit the 9 of us very comfortably. We had all the amenities we could ask for...fire place, kitchen, cable, washer/dryer, and a great hot tub. We even had plenty of robes waiting for us right next to the hot tub! Honi and Dave are great host. They went above and beyond as host and text us regularly to make sure we had everything we needed during our stay! When I have the opportunity to get back to Brighton, I'll be staying at the Mangy Moose again!

A perfect scape into nature, creativity and comfort!

I HIGHLY recommend this vacation rental!!!

One of my favorite memories of this rental is sitting in the jacuzzi at night with all the lights off and being able to see the stars because your location doesn't have intruding lights. I was so excited when I arrived and saw the natural setting and blown away when I entered into the cabin. You provided us with a cozy, fun, environment. I was so impressed with the mosaic designed floors and bathroom walls, the log covered walls, the racks made of antlers... of all the little details that you added in order to make this such a magical and special place. The amount of detail and care put into the cabin is impressive. Thank you, again, for being the caring people you are and for sharing such an amazing place with those that need to scape from everyday life!

Honi and Dave you are true artists and also care for comfort. A perfect combination in my eyes. Thank you!!!!! I can't wait to get back!

Had a fantastic time staying at the property. The owners, Honi and Dave, are wonderful hosts and provided all the amenities that anyone could possibly ask for. If possible, I will definately return again and again. Great access to sking, snowshoeing, hiking and any other outdoor sport imaginable. Perfect getaway spot for me to help me regain my focus.

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!
