Enjoy Our Condo: The full kitchen is ready for you to prepare sumptuous meals. We love to cook. Food preparation is easy with the convenience of the well equipped kitchen, including accessories, utensils, and cookware. The dining area has a large dining table with six chairs and the adjacent counter top eat-in area has three bar stools. Ice maker in laundry room. We love to return to our homey condo following a day of skiing, mountain biking, or hiking to enjoy the balcony overlooking the winter ice skating rink and the lighted trees or the summer tennis court. Small selection of DVD's, VCR movies, books and games are stored in the TV cabinet. Large selection of DVDs are available for rent in the Village Store. We love the relative quiet and privacy of Powderhorn Lodge with its own outdoor hot tub and entry fireplace gathering area. The adjacent Eagle Springs Complex, a one minute walk away, houses the livelier and noisier Club Solitude. Club Solitude privileges are included with your rental.
Club Solitude and Solitude Mountain Resort: At Club Solitude you can enjoy the outdoor heated pool, summer water slide, larger hot tubs, men’s and women’s saunas, equipped fitness center, children’s activity room including an XBox system, pool table, Foosball table or watch a movie of your selection in the media room. Books and many games are available for check out to use in the condo. The advantage of Solitude Mountain Resort is right in the name. Peace, quiet, and solitude for your vacation enjoyment. Ski all day on Utah’s 'Greatest Snow on Earth' and likely not encounter a lift line or hike to a trout filled mountain lake with the occasional deer or moose along the way instead of a trail full of hikers. Enjoy breakfast, lunch or dinner at the rustic Silverfork Lodge, just two miles down canyon, or dine in the fine restaurants in the village, The Thirsty Squirrel, Creekside or St. Bernard’s. For a winter dining experience include a reservation to eat at the adult only 'Yurt' in the woods.
We are both southern California natives. We have lived in southern Florida for over 35 years. We are now retired and enjoy life. We love Solitude Mountain Resort for just that, the solitude of the location. Spring/Summer/Fall hiking and, of course, the exceptional Winter skiing without lift lines.
We are original owners in the Powderhorn Lodge at Solitude Mountain Resort. We made the decison to buy here for many reasons, but among the top few are the ease of access with the SLC airport and the short drive to Solitude, no lift lines, fabulous skiing, great snow, great hiking, great mountain biking, and at the top of the list the peaceful solitude when compared to the stress of normal work and city life.
