About the property

Private Home, 5000 square feet, 4 Bedrooms, 4 1/2 Baths, (Sleeps 15)

Sunset Lodge, our 'Mountain Home' is a beautiful custom built 5000 square foot private house with three levels and vaulted ceilings. Our home is located near the top of the ridge on Solamere Drive in the Lower Deer Valley area. One of the few houses in the Solamere area with spectacular sunset and down valley views. You will end your day of skiing, snowboarding, hiking, or mountain biking enjoying the fantastic sunset view from the front balcony deck off of the timbered Great Room. Then relax in the large hot tub on the extended outside deck overlooking the Park City Valley. In the late summer and fall you will see the colorful array of leaves turning yellow, orange and red across from Sunset Lodge on Masonic Hill. You can just walk or bike from Sunset Lodge to a number of hiking and biking trails.

Our NON-SMOKING, NO PET home is perfect for a large extended family or just as good for two, three or four couples with or without children who want the privacy of their own house. Sunset Lodge is set up for a maximum of 8 adults and additional children. You are a little over one mile from the main Snow Park Lodge at Deer Valley, just over 2 miles to Park City ski resort and two miles from Historic Park City's Old Town Main Street with many great restaurants and interesting shopping. The Park City ski resort now includes Canyons to make the largest ski resort in the USA. You fly into the friendly Salt Lake City International Airport, pick-up your rental car, and you can be at Sunset Lodge in 45 minutes unless you stop to make purchases on your way through Park City.

Concierge Services are available, if desired, to pre-stock the kitchen and house, make advanced reservations, or decorate the house for special occasions and holidays.

Sunset Lodge is located on a quiet drive with little traffic in an exclusive area of Lower Deer Valley. The driveway from the street to the house is heated. There will not be a snow plow on the driveway at 6:30 in the morning and there will not be accumulated snow or ice on the driveway after a 'white-out' day of skiing and/or snowboarding.

Deer Valley ski resort offers complimentary ski storage at Snow Park Lodge so there is no need to carry your skis to the car at the end of the day - unless you plan to ski one of the other great Utah resorts within easy driving distance. Park City ski resort including the Canyons area is just minutes away. Solitude and Brighton are located in Big Cottonwood Canyon. Alta and Snowbird are in Little Cottonwood Canyon. All four resorts in both Cottonwood Canyons are an hours drive away. Snow Basin ski resort is an hour and 15 minutes drive. Powder Mountain ski resort is an hour and 30 minute drive. We have an efficient forced air dryer for six pairs of boots AND six pairs of gloves in the ground floor entry area so wet boots and gloves will never be an issue when you spend your skiing/snowboarding vacation at Sunset Lodge.

The entire house has a beautiful, spacious open floor plan with comfortable furnishings. On the main level enjoy the Great Room with vaulted ceilings encompassing the all granite gourmet kitchen with separate prep sink/wet bar, large dining area, 46 inch HDTV, wood burning fireplace and a telescope to enjoy the 'down valley' view overlooking Park City. The dining area opens onto the front deck with the hot tub and fabulous views. The separate Entertainment Room includes a 60 inch Smart HD television with xfinity X-1 cable box including DVR, 80Gb PlayStation 3 with 2 wireless Dual Shock controllers, game table, rear deck and great views. The PS3 is a Blu-ray DVD and regular DVD player with Sony Blu-ray remote. The main level master suite includes a gas fireplace, Smart HDTV, and DVD player. You can walk directly onto the front deck and hot tub area from this bedroom.

The upper level has a sitting area for quiet reading and another master suite. In this master bedroom you have a gas fireplace, HDTV, DVD player along with a seating area. Both master bathrooms have large jetted tubs, stall showers and dual vanities.

The lower level has the queen bedroom and the bunk room. The queen bedroom has an HDTV and DVD player. The bunk room has a flat screen TV, DVD player and a compact stereo system.

All four bedrooms have en suite bathrooms, walk-in closets and there is a powder room adjacent to the Great Room on the main level.

The lower level has another living space with a gas fireplace, a regulation pool table, and an desk area including a 3 in 1 printer, copier, and scanner for your use. If you must work while on vacation this will make it convenient to set-up your notebook computer and take care of business. Hard wired or passphrase security protected high speed wireless internet is included through out our home.

One of our property managers will greet you. We ask that you call from the airport so they can be prepared for your arrival. They will already have freshened the house, arranged for any special needs you have requested, turned up the radiant floor heating and adjusted the temperature in the hot tub in anticipation of your stay. They will show you how everything works, give you the keys and garage door openers, and then leave you to enjoy your vacation. They are locals and are always available to assist with any questions or problems that could arise during your stay at Sunset Lodge. You will not be stranded by distant management. Then contact our property manager on the day before your departure and they will meet you at the house to see you off, lock-up and check-in the keys and garage door openers. They will perform a thorough inspection of the property and arrange for the housekeeper. They report any damage, breakage or smoking to us.

Sunset Lodge has 24/7/365 monitored smoke and carbon monoxide detectors.

Sunset Lodge is a "no outside shoes inside" home. During all seasons, all exterior shoes are removed on the stone floor inside the front door and the door from the garage in our entry area. You will bring your comfy flip-flops or slippers for inside wear. Bare feet are good also. The radiant heat floors throughout our home will keep your feet warm. Keep a pair of outside shoes by the door to the deck to access the hot tub.

Mid-week housekeeping or daily maid services are available for an additional fee.

Call for 'last-minute' rental opportunities.

Minimum age for primary renter is 30 years.

Cancellations: If more than 60 days before arrival date full refund; 60 days or less before arrival date, renter will receive no refund unless the house can be re-rented for same terms, less a $250.00 fee.

About Steven and Kathy

We grew up in Southern California and were fortunate to enjoy both mountain and oceanside activities. We now live in the Florida Keys. We both love sunsets. Our goal was to be able to retire with a mountain home and a oceanside home. 'Sunset Lodge' is our Deer Valley mountain house with a spectacular sunset view 'down valley' overlooking Park City. We also have a Florida Keys house, 'Sunset Reef,' with an equally fantastic sunset view. We are blessed in life with great family and good friends. The photo is from the Park City Jazz Festival; a wonderful event that we supported.

Steven and Kathy purchased this house in 2008

Why Steven and Kathy chose Deer Valley

Deer Valley is a great location for a winter 'ski' house and a summer 'hiking/biking' house. You cannot beat the convenience of flying into the Salt Lake City International airport and being at our home in under an hour. Deer Valley ski resort is a little over one mile away and there are a number of fabulous ski resorts within easy driving distance. The summer hiking and biking is unmatched in our opinion.

What makes this house unique

We fell in love with the fantastic views of the surrounding mountains and the Park City valley. Enjoying the fabulous deck to look 'down valley' over Park City is wonderful, especially at sunset. We enjoy music and have a nice stereo system with speakers in a number of the rooms and on the decks. There are many ways to relax in our mountain home.

Unsurpassed Ski Vacation Stay!

  • 5 of 5

Sunset Lodge is by far the best ski home rental we have ever experienced. The view is amazing, it feels intimate yet in reality a close drive to the slopes and Main St. Everything in the house was organized, clean and beautiful. The large bedrooms were very comfortable, and the pool table was a hit with the teens. There is even a boot warmer for your ski gear! The property manager was wonderful too - he came by to check on us and was so friendly I asked him to stay for a bit and tell us about Park City. If you have a large group and enjoy a comfortable, clean and well equipped lodge with beautiful decoration and a hot tub, this is the lodge for you! Thanks Steve! The Mathers

Family and friends

  • 5 of 5

Sunset Lodge was perfect for our large family which included 2 twelve year olds, 2 - 20yr olds, and 3 couples! The home is decorated beautifully, and is extremely comfortable. It is right up the short hill from the Deer Valley base, so picking up and dropping off skiers was a breeze. The kitchen is well stocked with everything that you might need--- we cooked every evening, to avoid the hassle of going to restaurants. The pool table, hot tub, and many televisions were all pluses for a fabulous holiday! The property was all that we could wish for!
