Loved the hot tub. We saw multiple deer and a black panther on the hillside while relaxing in the tub. Plenty of space for a large group. Comfortable beds. Cozy fireplace.

Very reasonably priced, lots of room

  • 4 of 5

John, the owner, was very responsive any time we contacted him throughout the whole process, and this property is very reasonably priced for its size and location. Slight smell of cigarette smoke, but my daughter, who has asthma, was not affected at all by it. The hot tub was perfect and while much of the interior hasn't been updated since the 1980's, the kitchen work area has an awesome gas range, new dishwasher and new countertops. The bathroom countertops all looked to have been updated recently too. I liked having a washer and dryer upstairs near the bedrooms. This place is seriously so roomy! The master has a queen and two twin beds, as well as a full bath with separate shower and garden tub. Another upstairs bedroom has a queen and a twin, and the 3rd upstairs bedroom has two queens and a tv. There's a finished bedroom with a queen bed in the basement, but the rest of the basement is unfinished and we had to walk our son down there to sleep the first night as he was a little hesitant to brave the basement by himself. :) The pool table is in the basement but we were out on the slopes or in the hot tub the entire time so we didn't have time to play pool. We did a lot of cooking but realized that the only place available to put food was either on top of the fridge or in the fridge. If you eat out and don't cook, you won't miss the storage, but we have dietary restrictions and do all of our own cooking so we were a bit crammed for space to put our non-refrigerated food. We enjoyed our stay as it was a great deal for all of that space and just a 30 min. drive to the resorts in both Little Cottonwood Canyon and Big Cottonwood Canyon.

Great place to stay!!

  • 5 of 5

It was very nice. Plenty of room to move around. It is centrally located to everything we needed. You could walk to the groceries store and Walmart was 4 miles. We were at Brighton Ski Resort in 30 minutes. I will be here again next year!

great stay!!

  • 5 of 5

Excellent place; clean with A-1 appliances and voice control for TV. Owner very prompt when hot tub a little too hot for some "old" bodies. Plenty of towels. Lots of beds. Comfortable seating. Close to skiing but no expressway noise! Grocery store and 7/11with gas station very close by. Truly a home away from home. Will plan to stay here again when we come back to ski Utah!! Sherrie Hickman for the rest of the Michigan crew!!
