We rented this home for 10 nights; half of the time was just me, wife, and kids and the other half was with extended family (grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousins). Suited both scenarios extremely well. Great location - quiet, very close to hiking (was a summer trip), town, etc. Owner (lives in bottom-most level) was exceptionally accommodating. The middle layer is a smaller, just as nice, rental. Depending on needs, you can rent both levels and fit many. Can't recommend enough. Looking forward to a return.

Fantastic Rental Property

  • 5 of 5

I can't recommend this rental highly enough if you want to ski or explore the resorts in Little or Big Cottonwood Canyon. It is close to all resorts (Solitude, Snowbird, Alta), minutes from the entrance to each Canyon and close to all amenities. You can choose to eat at local restaurants, restaurants in Salt Lake City, take a slightly longer drive to Park City (which we did on two occasions), or cook meals at home. The kitchen is fully stocked with all needed cookware, and even a cappuccino machine.

The house is clean and well cared for. The beds are firm and comfortable. The showers are also clean and have good water pressure. The caretaker, Kris, is friendly, helpful, and informative. Wireless internet is provided and even Netflix is available. It is a great place to stay for a family vacation.

Great Place for Great Skiing!

  • 5 of 5

Superb location and tons of snow. Had a fantastic ski vacation in Utah that began with excellent accommodations. Stunning mountain views from the front door. As the ad states, you are within minutes of the top rated ski hills in the US (Alta, Snowbird, Brighton and Solitude). You can ski a different mountain every day. About 90 minutes to Powder Mountain, 60 min to Snowbasin, and 30 minutes to Park City. Easy access from the airport and only 20 minutes from downtown SLC.

Very convenient with storage in a warm garage and store ski-boots in warm, tiled room where they dry. The description is very accurate with the place being exactly as displayed in the photos. Immaculately clean. Fully equipped kitchen. Kris, the caretaker, was extremely helpful. He oriented us and directed us to grocery stores (Smiths and Whole Foods) and to the Lifthouse ski shop for discount lift tickets and rentals. Owner was very straight forward, no problems.

Massive amounts of space for our family of 5 and it could easily accommodate two families. The place could benefit with a second TV if there were more kids, just to avoid squabbles. And with that being the only criticism, this place is highly recommended for a ski vacation. We could not have been happier. Just make sure you rent your 4x4 SUV early so you don't miss out on the skiing during powder days.

Great ski lodge

  • 5 of 5

I stayed at this beautiful house for a week in February. Huge living room / kitchen / diner and comfortable bedrooms. The communal pool room (complete with piano) was a bonus!

Location was great - easy to get to all the ski resorts (Snowbird, Alta, Brighton) and only a short drive to the Canyons and Park City. Chris (the caretaker) was really friendly and helpful, but also discreet and respectful of our privacy. Definitely recommended.

Mountain wedding

  • 5 of 5

We hosted several family members, friends, and bridesmaids for our daughter's wedding in SLC, with the wedding reception in Snowbird. We rented both halves of this incredible estate. We slept 17 in comfortable beds. Showers were never a conflict. The ability to use both sets of kitchens provided excellent resources for meal preparation. All the sheets, towels, kitchen equipment and even spices were readily available and in great supply. The caretaker was a wonderful reassurance in the event any needs were required.

As a summer destination, the house was comfortably cool. The area provided ample opportunities to hike the local mountain trails, run the side streets or simply take in the incredible beauty of the surrounding mountains and valley view from the house's massive front porch or upper deck.

The house location provides easy access to the mountain resort destinations, shopping, and off-site entertainment (although the billiards table was a great source of fun). SLC and the airport are easily accessed.

We thoroughly enjoyed our brief but memorable stay. This house is a great solution for hosting lots of people in an incredibly beautiful destination.

Very comfortable house for large group

  • 4 of 5

We recently rented this unit for our annual friend ski weekend. The house is in a great location at the base of the canyon and very nicely appointed. We easily cooked for 12-14 people each night and the rooms were very functional. We had any questions or issues promptly attended to by the on site caretaker. Great value and perfect for a large group!
