About Grant Thacker

We live in Park City and work in Salt Lake. We are originally from Seattle. We love Park City for it's awesome outdoor recreation. Should we ever relocate back to Washington State, we will always have this condo, our roots back to Utah.

Grant Thacker purchased this condo in 2012

Why Grant Thacker chose Empire House

On Powder days you will NOT be stuck in traffic waiting hours for the pass to clear!! We ski between 50-60 times a year and we know what we want in a ski condo. Creature comforts, location and plenty space to stretch out are important to us. From the condo it is a quick walk to down-hill, cross-country, golf, mountain biking/hiking trails, grocery, liquor store and restaurants. If I want to sleep in while my husband snags first chair, not an issue. Lunches and after ski snacks are steps away from the resort and with view of the slopes.

What makes this condo unique

Views of Park City Resort from all windows. Walking distance to most everything. Free bus station and/or car rental is across the street. 1100 square feet gives you plenty of space to stretch out after an epic ski day! Underground parking is great on Utah powder days.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We have stayed at the Empire House before, this was the first time in this specific unit. The condo is very clean, everything is brand new and nicely furnished.

Comfortable Updated Ski Condo with Character

  • 4 of 5

Beautifully equipped condo that has been recently updated with taste and quality. I've lived in UT and traveled maybe 20 times to Park City. The area is full of pretty boring, outdated comdos that aren't at all interesting. This definitely isn't one of them! The condo is equipped with a working steam shower in the master bath. All the necessities were there and we especially appreciated having kitchen staples and toiletries available for use. Empire House is a unique Victorian style building with underground parking and maybe 14 units in total. With this unit being on the third floor it offers sloped wood ceilings with unique angles and character. Don't fear the walk up and down the stairs. They aren't tough and it really isn't an issue. Although the condo is not very big, it is larger in person than the pictures represent. It would very comfortably accodate a family of 4 or 5. My teenaged boys said the fold out leather chairs were great for sleeping and they had no complaints. Empire House is located across the parking lot from Park City. It's a great location, easy walk for snow boarders but not so easy in ski boots, but doable. The bus route is just outside the building giving easy free access to Main St. and the other resorts. I can't see how anyone would regret staying here.

wonderful place

  • 5 of 5

It was great!! Thank you for stocking the place with coffee and spices. We appreciated that didn't have to pick those up. We loved the shower and the shower gels, toothpaste and body lotion.

We left our ski boots at pcmr for $6 for both boots and walked over with just our equipment.

The only criticism is that the foam pillows were too hard (but that is so minor).

We will be back!

Owner's Response: We are glad you had a nice time in PCMR! Thanks for your input...We will put some spare pillows in our unit for a better selection. Thanks again.

Family Ski Holiday

  • 5 of 5

What a great location - wake up, check the slopes while eating breakfast, walk up to lifts.

All mod cons. Steam room was great for winding down at the end of the day. Had a great time there - and owners very easy to deal with. Highly recommended.

EMPIRE HOUSE

  • 5 of 5

This was our 2nd ski-season stay at Empire House, and our first time for this unit. We would 100% recommend it to others. The condo is a short walk away from the ski area, and is convenient to anything in and around town (via bus or car). If you have a car, the ground-level parking garage is wonderful. There is bus transportation, but we didn't use it.

Photos don't do justice to the unit (it's much cuter in person). The owners have done a good job of making the layout as organized, comfortable, and as practical as possible. There is a "mud-room" area for skis & equip. just off the entrance with cubbies & baskets -- such a simple idea that really works. There is plenty of storage, drawer space, and closet space throughout the unit. The owners chose to turn the "turret" area into a little bedroom. This was just perfect for our teenage son as it gave him his own "space," privacy, and room to spread out. The washer & dryer were a plus, as well, but we had trouble getting things to dry. Don't know if it was us or the equipment. We let the owners know, so they can look into it. Our recommendation was to have the owners' manuals for appliances available so guests can look up how things work. Another plus was the steam shower -- nice, though personally, we are a jetted-tub family, and there wasn't a tub, but we managed ;). Wi-fi was available. The 52" (I think) TV in the living area was nice, and there is a BlueRay player. We ended up hooking up the laptop and watching some of our shows via AMAZON, though, as there wasn't a lot of selection on cable. If I had anything negative to say it's the fact that the unit is a 3-floor walk-up (but I won't take a "star" away for that). It WAS a challenge getting our luggage up & down quietly.

We started communicating with the owners several months before our trip. They answered all of our questions and gave us lots of helpful dining & shopping info. There were no surprises and they were great to work with.

First Time in Park City...Will Definitely Be Coming Back!

  • 5 of 5

My boyfriend and I stayed in this property's for a long weekend and it was absolutely perfect given this was the first time either of us had been to Park City. This property has the perfect location (right across the parking lot from Park City's Legacy Lodge) and one block away from the public bus which brings your pretty much anywhere for free! The property was very clean and owners were very helpful in answering our questions before and during our stay. Would definitely recommend to anyone looking to make the trip!

Nice Upgraded Cono with a Good Location

  • 5 of 5

I take my family on a ski trip every year and rent through VRBO but this was my first trip to Park City in 20 year. The Condo was as represented in VRBO. Condo was very clean and everything looked recently upgraded or replaced. All electronics and appliances worked well. Kitchen was well stocked. I found everything that I needed to cook breakfast and dinner. The Bed was very comfortable. Especially liked the oversized steam shower. You can see the lifts from the Condo. The main Park City Resort parking lot is between the Condo and the main lifts. It is a short walk but longer than I woulld recommend in Ski boots. I wore my normal shoes and rented a basket at the resort where they allow you to store your Ski boots overnight. The cost was $6 plus tip a day to rent a basket. The VRBO owner was very responsive to email and answered all of my questions very promptly. I would definitely consider renting this property again the next time I go to Park City.
