About the property

House, 6 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 6 Baths, (Sleeps 12-14)

The Retreat at the Canyons is one of the few mountain-side, single-family residences available for rent in Park City. Nestled in a grove of aspens in one of the premier private neighborhoods, it offers a unique combination of a tranquil setting, but is just minutes from restaurants, shopping, and night life. Winter or summer, spring or fall, the Retreat at the Canyons is an exclusive, spacious choice for an executive retreat, a family vacation, or a reunion with friends. It is a 35-minute drive from the SLC Airport.

With its warm interior wood detailing and antiques, the Retreat at the Canyons combines function and luxury. Its 5500 square feet of space offers plenty of room for sharing meals, conversation, good wines, billiards, or a movie in the media room.

The Retreat at the Canyons can sleep 12-14 guests in its two master suites and four guest bedrooms, each of which has access to its own bathroom. Built on three levels, this home has unique public and private spaces. Noiseless radiant heat throughout maintains perfect climate control.

With its soaring two-level ceiling, the great room features a natural-stone, gas fireplace and large windows facing uphill. Two separate eating areas are contiguous to the kitchen - a breakfast alcove that seats eight and a dining area with mountain views that can seat 12. The spacious gourmet kitchen has plenty of prep space.

In addition to ski-in, ski-out* access to the new combined Park City Ski Resort (formerly the Canyons and Park City), it is five miles from the base of Deer Valley (free shuttle bus service available). In the summer, hundreds of miles of biking and hiking trails are just out the door. The Park City area boasts several championship quality public golf courses. Wasatch white-water rafting and fly fishing are world renowned. Or enjoy a leisurely hot-air balloon flight or shop in the nearby outlets or in one of the many art galleries on Main Street.

*Mother Nature controls when ski-in, ski-out access will start and stop. We're at 7000 feet.

About Peggy Schmidt

Our family loves getting together for a ski vacation. Our guests--many of whom are family groups--tell us how much they enjoy being able to share large public spaces (media room, game room, great room and fully-supplied kitchen) and still have the privacy of six large bedrooms and baths. We enjoy our home year-round, but when we can't be here, we hope you will find it to be the special place that we do.

Peggy Schmidt purchased this house in 2006

Why Peggy Schmidt chose The Timbers

Park City is the best! It's easy to get here from most major cities in the US. Once you arrive, it's only 35 minutes from the airport to our front door. (The highways are well plowed!) It is the greatest snow on earth. And we find the Canyons to have some of the most varied and interesting terrain in the area--good for skiers and snowboarders. Got people who aren't going up the mountain? No problem. There's plenty to do--shopping, movies, and other great outdoor activities. Use our snowshoes! Try tubing! Visit the Olympic Park. Or just snuggle up by the fire and watch the snow fall through our wonderful large windows.

What makes this house unique

We've got a surround sound system and projector TV in our media room. Great channels on our DirectTV, especially for sports lovers. The cooks in your group will love our kitchen--it is well stocked with pots, pans, gadgets and utensils. We supply all the paper goods! No need to run out for napkins, paper towells, or toilet paper. Like to play pool or games? We've got them available in our upstairs game loft. Oh, and you'll love the outdoor 5-person spa, too.

A Marvelous Property

  • 5 of 5

The home was everything it claimed to be...the pictures did not lie. It housed nine adults for a fine week of skiing and relaxing. Our group has been traveling to different ski resorts annually and renting homes eah trip. This is by far the best we've been able to find. Peggy, thanks for the hospitality and having your place stocked with everything we could possibly have needed. Regards, Charlie C

Gorgeous home in a stunning location

  • 5 of 5

This lovely house in the Canyons is easy to find and a quick walk from the Canyons ski school or skiable from the top of the mountain (if there’s good snow). Peggy (owner) was extremely accommodating, going so far as to purchase us a crib for the youngest baby in the group. The layout with bedrooms on each level is great for splitting up adults and kids as well as having 2-beds near the kitchen for late night baby-feeding. The great room and adjacent dining room/kitchen easily accommodated us all as we spent most of our indoor time in those areas.

If I had to name a disappointment, it would be that there was very little snow cover which was one of the main reasons we came to Park City. Maybe next year :)

Great spring break

  • 5 of 5

What a great house for avid skiers. All amenities were as advertised and everything worked great. Ski in/out is def not for beginners. Due to weather, the true ski in was not available, but the alternative trail in worked well with a very short walk across the street. Not sure I can consider this a true ski out, (must cross 1 road to get to lift), but it is as close as you can get to ski out and really no inconvenience. Traveled with 3 families all with children in ski school. Very short drive to Canyons base with convenient short term parking to drop/pickup kids from classes. Owner was extremely helpful and responsive during the entire process. Would def recommend this property. Another great vacation in Utah and looking forward to many more.

Great House!

  • 5 of 5

This home was perfect for our large extended family ski trip. The house is so well laid out and provided so much room...much more then we anticipated. The owner was a delight to work with and it comes with so many extras, snow shoes, games, movies etc. This is our 3rd year going to Park City and we will definitely rent this house again if it is available.

Fabulous Home

  • 5 of 5

Just back from an awesome ski vacation in Park City and just loved, loved, loved this home. We were two families with kids ranging in age from 11 to 16 and this house more than comfortably accommodated all 10 of us. The layout of the home is awesome - 2 bedrooms on each of 3 different levels. Having two master bedrooms is a real plus when you have two families. The kids made great use of the media room and pool table and all the board games on offer. The kitchen was exceptionally well equipped and the owner has done an amazing job labeling how everything works which made life very easy. The ski-in/ski-out access was a little patchy when we arrived (always a risk in Spring Skiing) but we were fortunate enough to get 12+inches of snow on our 2nd day which made the home truly ski-in/ski-out for the rest of the week. We will definitely be back!!!

Fabulous trip

  • 5 of 5

This house was just perfect for us in every way. We were a group of 5 middle aged couples and there was everything we needed to make our vacation comfortable; plenty space; well equipped; lovely furnishings all well maintained; ski trail right at the door etc. We hired private cars which gave us the added convenience of being able to easily visit neighbouring resorts and to collect groceries. The people and weather came up trumps for us ensuring one of our best holidays to date. The owner was a pleasure to communicate with and I would have no hesitation in recommending her lovely home to others.
