About the property

2 Bdrms. with sleeping loft, 'seasonal' Birdhouse for Kids, I Bath, Sleeps 5-6

Guests say the pictures fall short of showing off this charming storybook setting. Imagine a quaint Stone Cottage surrounded by huge pines, a secluded Hot Tub across a stone bridge nestled next to a mountain stream, a real wood burning fireplace, Wi-Fi, and a nearby stream-side Fire Pit. There's even an adorable little stone outbuilding we call 'The Bird House' with a sleeping loft, which is heated in the winter - a perfect place for the kids. If you're looking for a unique memorable experience in an unbelievable setting this is it. We know you'll fall in love with this little cabin and extraordinary setting.

Booking this cottage through Stewart Mountain Lodging also comes with access to other amenities nearby. You'll love our Zip Line Swing and Fire Pit, not to mention the personal hospitality and gracious guest services of your mountain hosts. Call us today for more information.


THE 'BIRDHOUSE' : Across the stone bridge is a small two story outbuilding we affectionately call 'The Birdhouse'. The second level is accessed by a spiral staircase and includes a full size bed with an outside balcony directly over the mountain stream.

OUTDOOR DINING: The main deck features an outdoor tall table and chairs (all teak) next to the stream. A truly great spot to enjoy your morning coffee or a little wine and cheese as the evening closes in. The deck and surrounding area is beautifully equipped with subtle outdoor lighting.

NEARBY FIREPIT: Right next door - - and right on the stream, is a Firepit. Who doesn't enjoy building a campfire and roasting a hot dog or two - - or maybe a delicious treat and a Utah favorite - S'Mores.

About Stewart Mountain Lodging

I moved into the Storybook Stone Cottage with my youngest daughter when she was only 5 years old and started a 10 year restoration project to preserve this precious place and looking back on it now, most likely to restore myself as well. It is where my heart is and I believe you will feel the love and serenity that this cottage will provide for you as it has for me and my family. I had no idea that 8 years later we would have a lodging company here in Sundance. Our guests often times become our friends. How lucky are we! Please come for a visit and see for yourself. We love making new friends!

Stewart Mountain Lodging purchased this cottage in 1999

We are a professional Vacation Rental Company. So, what does that mean to you? Here’s what you can expect from us.

4. ON CALL, ON DEMAND - 24 / 7

We are locals who live and work (and play) at Sundance year round. That means we are at your beckoned call whenever a need arises. No figuring it out on you own or chasing down a homeowner in case something goes amiss.

What makes this cottage unique

While the photos speak for themselves in showcasing this amazing cottage, perhaps the other most unique feature is the mountain stream that runs right next to this cottage. The stream side setting is cool and comfortable in the summer months and tucked away in our Big Pine Canyon just a short 5 min walk to the Sundance Resort. The winter is cozy and charming where the kids can enjoy our quiet lane and hillside for sledding and snowmen. You will fall in love with Storybook Stone Cottage!

Guestbook comments from the manager

Dear Brad and Vicki,

Thank you so much for following your vision and creating such a delightful wonderland for three excited boys and their young-minded parents! We needed a nearby retreat and were planning to just stay in a hotel in Park City- but stumbled upon your website and will forever be lad we did. Instead of just "getting away" for a day we really fell like we escaped to a new adventure. We loved the birdhouse, the boys swam in the hot tub multiple times and especially loved the zip line. We had planned to hike but loved this little paradise so much, we didn't want to leave! Thanks so much for everything- we'll be back!

Andrea, Chris & the boys

charming mountain setting!

  • 4 of 5

We thought this should be called "Storybrook"! Gracious hosts stopped by with fresh bread and lollipops, and the home has a wonderful ambience right over the babbling brook. Just to be aware, the beds are small and short (fullsize is the biggest), and the ceiling clearance is also short (about 6 feet) walking into the kitchen--not ideal for tall guests. There are no locks on the bathroom door (it is shared by two bedrooms), and the exterior doors of the cottage don't all lock either. The home is only a dozen feet away from the homes on either side, but nevertheless felt private and remote. Parking is tight, so don't bring a large/long car. The bathrobes are exquisitely soft, the home has DVDs and books and CDs to enjoy, and hummingbirds and deer to watch while you eat outside (there is no indoor dining space, but fortunately sitting outside on the patio was refreshing in the mountain setting). Unique and special place!

Enchanting Storybook Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

Storybook Stone Cottage was the perfect place to escape, relax and enjoy all the beauty Utah has to offer. The cottage was clean, warm and inviting upon our arrival. We were thrilled to find a fully stocked kitchen and enjoyed being able to cook some of our meals and enjoy them outside next to the picturesque stream. We loved seeing all the wildlife around us - hummingbirds right on the porch, rabbits, squirrels and turkeys roamed around the yard. The close proximity to Sundance, while having privacy, peace and quite was perfect for us. We traveled to Utah for a half marathon and having a wonderful nights sleep prior to and a hot tub to recover in after was amazing. Wyatt was incredibly kind and helpful, we would recommend to Stone Cottage or any of Stewart Mountain Lodgings other accommodations. We were able to easily travel to Park City, the Timpanogos Caves, Bridal Veil Falls, and hiking at Sundance. We only wished we could stay longer and are eagerly looking forward to returning!

Perfect family retreat!

  • 5 of 5

Storybook Cottage represents the true spirit of Sundance. Every inch of this unique property takes advantage of the river, mountains, pines, sunshine, and wildlife. If you want to get close to nature without sacrificing luxurious accommodations, this is the spot for you. Enjoy privacy and peace just a short walk from Sundance resort and a 10-minute drive from high-end shopping and dining. But don't be surprised if you spend 100% of your time right at the cottage! With the hiking, zip line, river, hot tub, games, movies, books, and well-appointed kitchen, our family had no desire to leave!

Home Sweet Home

  • 5 of 5

If I were a cat I would have been purring and never have left!

Nestled within a sky high pine canyon, next to a burbling stream, the Storybook Stone Cottage is the definition of deep, cozy, comfort. Elegantly appointed, no detail to small, the house is lovingly decorated and furnishes a fully functional kitchen (unusual for rental properties, in my experience).

Just charming, top to are it's owners, available 24/7 with big smiles and lots of local knowledge.

Loved my stay and cannot wait to return!

Perfect Weekend Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We loved being able to escape from our crazy lives for the weekend! The cabin was the perfect size for our getaway with friends and had everything we needed to relax, including a sauna! It was so fun to go on the little hikes and be so close to nature, our 2 year old loved all the different plants. We enjoyed relaxing after a long day in the hot tub and seeing so many more stars than in the city. We cannot wait until we can get back to our "Hillside Hideaway"!!

Car: recommended

Location, location, location - 5 Minute Walk to the Sundance Resort. The pictures say it all. This is an unbelievable stone cottage, built right on the stream. The Hot Tub is tucked away, surrounded by a stone wall on one side and the stream on the other. It doesn't get any more romantic. This cottage is located on a private lane, secluded from any traffic or noise - other than natures soundtrack - - the delightful sound of the stream. You've got to see this place to believe it.

Booking this cottage through Stewart Mountain Lodging also comes with access to other amenities near by. You'll love our Zip Line Swing and Fire Pit, not to mention the personal hospitality and gracious guest services of your mountain hosts. We would love to share this beautiful place with you. Call us today for more information.

Other Activities: Outdoor Firepit nearby - on the stream
