Susan Shay purchased this cabin in 2005

Why Susan Shay chose Park City area

This is a unique property and is not for everyone. If you want to be in 'town' where the action is.....Not for You..

It is approximately 11 miles outside downtown Park City (15 minutes drive). You will need a 4 wheel drive vehicle as it is at the end of a mountain road that gets a lot of snow.

It is a local destination for backcountry skiers..literally...they park 50 yards up the road as there is approx 1000 vertical feet of bowl can ski from the front door and connect to miles of trails.

lots of moose, deer, etc...bear in the summer are not uncommon visitors though elusive.

snow shoes are provided and encouraged....

it is one of very few 'alpine-forest' experiences in the Park City area and a hot tub on the back deck while it is snowing will be a memorable experience...

What makes this cabin unique

within 15 minutes of all Park City Resorts.

within 40 minutes of Alta, Snowbird, Brighton, Solitude resorts (15 minutes closer than Park City location)

25 minutes from the airport

Alone in the woods with special people in a cabin '2nd to none' for charm and creativity all rebuilt and designed by the owners...

Relaxing cozy getaway in the snowy mountains

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a fantastic pre-Christmas retreat into the mountains thanks to this cozy and convenient get-away home. All the conveniences one would need with a fantastic fireplace and views of the pine trees and mountains in the distance. Almost daily we enjoyed the snowshoeing trails at the end of the street with fantastic summit views of Parley's Canyon and beyond. The hot tub was a bonus treat after a long day of skiing and Park City exploring. We have family in Salt Lake City, so this was very convenient between the valley and Park City attractions. Will definitely look to return in the future!

Absolutely INCREDIBLE!

  • 5 of 5

What a perfect vacation, in a perfect location! This cabin absolutely amazing and was a great place to host our Thanksgiving dinner! We shared our space with a total of 10 family members- plenty of room for entertaining! We appreciated the decor, the remarkable setting, the hot tub, the well appointed kitchen and the cozy fire burning fireplace. We will definitely be back!

Cozy cabin with secluded feeling

  • 5 of 5

Walk out the front door to geat hikes and back country skiing. Or, relax in the hot tub on back porch.

Secluded, casual log cabin living was a nice change from the pace of Chicago. Our high school age children loved the old record player with the 60's and 70's tunes, never turned on the tv all week.

10-15 minutes from canyons/park city ski resort, grocery etc. 15 min to down town park city. About 40 min to Alta ski.

Alan was very responsive whenever we had questions.

Good choice if you want quiet and don't mind driving a touch to get places (which we knew up front and were fine with).

Cabin on the Summit

  • 5 of 5

Susan Shay and Alan Johnson were very fast to respond to all questions from the first day I sent in our request. We have visited the Park City area for years but always stayed "in Town". However, we always found ourselves driving to Big Cottonwood and Little Cottonwood canyon for the great snow. So this cabin hidden on top of a mountain in the woods with the Elk and other wildlife was a perfect spot for us. Spending a week in the area this cabin was only 1/2 hour from the airport and only 15-20 min tops to downtown Park city and Deer Valley. Oh and the parking in Park City has become much better because we were in town many late nights.

The cabin was exactly what is described and even better in person. The cabin has its own personality. Allen met us at the exit off I80 and drove lead us to the cabin and gave me a quick history of the place. Allen walked us through and showed us all the amenities. One bedroom has many of the trophies and medals from US National team competitions Allen coached. The message chair overlooking the mountains was one of my favorite spots with a cup of coffee in the mornings after a long day of skiing. Also with the cabin were sets of snow shoes. There is a great hike on the summit right from the cabin which is the last cabin on a dead end. Fire wood provided for the fireplace and the spa was just the right temperature. All towels and linens were as comfortable as a five star hotel. All condiments were in place.

We were lucky to have multiple mornings of fresh snow. The nice thing about the road is at 7 AM sharp a guy would scrap the roads. Not only that while we were gone someone would come and sweep the decks and shovel the drive way so you would come home to a clean entrance...nice touch. They would even move the trash to the street for pick up.

All in all, I have already recommended the cabin to friends. Its a larger than it looks cabin. Great character not the pre fab cabins being thrown together this is the real deal. Major shopping and grocery stores less than ten minutes. One of the best breakfasts in the area in just down the hill. To add, the most fun we always have is at the Gorgoza Park City Tubing 5 min down the hill from the cabin. So do not hesitate and lose your chance to stay at one of the best properties in the area. I think we will go for the summer. Enjoy!
