About Honi Thompson

We have spent most of our lives out doors loving to camp, hike, ski, wake board, snowboard & enjoy everything the mountains & Utah has to offer. It has been our goal to spend as much time as possible together as a family!

Honi Thompson purchased this cabin in 2009

Why Honi Thompson chose Utah

This location is amazing! Moments from both solitude & Brighton ski resorts. It takes us only minutes to get up the canyon to the cabin which makes it simple to still get grocery's or hit the restaurants. With Guardsman's Pass minutes away we can go snowmobiling easily. Tubing is minutes away as well. In the summer their are so many hikes we cant keep up!

What makes this cabin unique

We are in the heart of moose territory! We are constantly spotting them. Our deck off the back is a haven for wildlife it has a spectacular view of nothing but the mountainside & we love to feed all the birds especially blue jays, chipmunks & squirrels. The hot tub also looks right out into the woods and mountainside.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the cabin across from Mangey Moose (Scraggly Squirrel). The cabin had everything you need for a great stay: the cabin was warm, the hot tub was hot, there was plenty of beds and places to sleep. The best part about staying here was that the owners were also up the cabin and were quick to help us with any questions or needs we had during our stay. 10/10 will definitely book with them again.

  • 5 of 5

Its been a couple years since since my family took a vacation. This was a much needed time out!! The atmosphere was perfect. I loved seeing one of my babies she went to an amazing home. I will be returning with my other two kids who were unable to go with us this time and go on those amazing hikes around the lakes!! Thanks so much Honi and family for the vacation!!

Christmas at the Mangy Moose

  • 5 of 5

My family wanted to get away from the hustle and bustle so we decided to have Christmas in a cabin in the mountains it was a last minute idea and the Mangy Moose was almost the last cabin available so we rented it the family was so surprised that it was as big as it was and how everything was ready for us the firewood all chopped and stacked even the fist fire was built ready to light they even some of the outdoors indoors the decor was beautiful. if you want a csbin that feels like a cabin on the inside not just on the outside this is it and the owners are some of the nicest people who l have met my son got a flat tire and was frozen but Dave was more then willing to help out and got it fixed for us the hot tub was really nice especially at night with all the stars out we live being there we stayed an extra night we can't wait to come back

Thanks for the fun time Honi and Dave

Super Cool & Eclectic Mangy Moose & Scraggly Squirrel Cabins

  • 5 of 5

We rented both the Mangy Moose & adjacent Scraggly Squirrel cabins & my extended family couldn't stop expressing how delighted they were with both cabins! We've never stayed in cabins that were so fun with so much personality and unique and entertaining decor! Can't say enough about neat the cabins were! And on top of that, Honi Thompson was a great pleasure to work with!

Great setting

  • 5 of 5

if you are looking for a relaxing, rustic cabin to hang out in and enjoy the beautiful canyon this would be a great place. Honi is so easy to work with and makes it very easy for you to enjoy your stay worry free.We enjoyed watching the hummingbird wars. We stayed here as it is very close to Silver Fork Lodge where our son was married. He and his groomsmen stayed in the Mangy Moose with us. As well as some relatives. We rented the Hawks Nest for the groomsmen and that worked out very well.
