Why Nathan C. chose Capitol Hill
Salt Lake City's Marmalade Hill Historic District was named so because early street names reflected the fruit-bearing plants and trees imported and planted there by its early residents. Marmalade is a small triangular area bounded by 300 North on the south, 500 North on the north, Center Street on the east, and Quince Street, the district's "Main Street", on the west. Settled in the early days of Salt Lake City, the Marmalade District is distinguished from other neighborhoods by steep, narrow, angular streets, mature landscaping and a surprising variety of vintage residential buildings. Within a single one-block area are almost as many styles of architecture as exist in the entire Avenues Historic District. Moreover, many buildings are considered to be among Utah's best examples of certain types of architecture. Today, the neighborhood stands as a modest, well-preserved, monument to the skill, taste, and resourcefulness of its pioneer inhabitants. Excellent examples of Utah's early architecture in Marmalade Hill include the John Platts House at 364 Quince Street, the Carpenter-Gothic-style Thomas Quayle House at 355 Quince Street, the vernacular Queen Anne-style Reverend John D. Nutting House at 161 West 400 North, and the more formal Italianate-style Morrow-Taylor House at 390 Quince Street. Built in 1890, the 19th Ward Meetinghouse is an eclectic example of Victorian architecture that exhibits unique features such as the onion-shaped dome and onion-topped pillars, which was a departure from the uniformity exhibited by earlier LDS meeting house architecture.

Very clean and well stocked with everything you need.
This was my 2nd stay here..just adorable & the host ,Nathan, is very attentive. I will definitely rebook with these people!
Basic and Clean
It took a bit to figure out how best to drive to this place. Be prepared for stairs to this upstairs apartment. It is clean and comfortable. The bed was great. Nathan was friendly and was easy to contact. The television was limited in channels available. The WiFi was great - strong and fast.
Great location, very comfortable stay, beautiful view!
Very Accommodating Host
The VRBO came with all the necessary amenities and was very comfortable. The house was located in a good spot just outside of town (about a 10-15 minute walk to get to Temple Square and about 20 minutes to the TRAX station), and my fiancé and I were pleasantly surprised to find it was across the street from a walking trail that offers a good view of the valley.
Most of all, I’m impressed with the generosity of our host. Nathan was easy to communicate with and flexible on both our check in and check out times. Where he really went above and beyond, though, is by letting me know I had left a couple articles of clothing behind and kindly offering to ship them to me.
Thanks for the welcoming stay!
Great place. A little out of the way but I would definitely rent Gris spot again!
