So you're going skiing or snowboarding in the Cottonwood Canyons?

Well, no Utah winter sports adventure is complete without a comfortable stay in your own lodge paradise, featuring rustic bear/moose/elk/horse decor more reminiscent of 'Urban Ski Lodge' than 'Elk Lodge.' Your skier/snowboarders' paradise features 4 roomy bedrooms and 2 large living areas scattered throughout 3 levels, providing ample accommodations for two large families or a decent-sized group of dudes looking to relive the sins of a misspent youth.

Three and a half large bathrooms provide multiple opportunities to indulge appearance-obsessed preening teenagers while you shower alone (or with a guest) under the best water pressure north of the Equator. Enjoy a leisurely evening basking in the warmth of the fireplace under the watchful eye of our resident plaster elk or retire to the fully-finished basement playroom for an evening of family friendly boardgames or rented movies. In-laws visiting with you? Banish them to a beautiful finished basement featuring its own spacious bedroom, a large full bath and a living space all their own.

The unit is fully stocked with the makings of a great vacation, including a jetted tub in the master bathroom for soothing tired muscles or hosting romantic interludes and a spacious hottub on the deck outside so you can experience that authentic 'Hottub Time Machine' experience that brought you to the mountains in the first place.

The Rustic Spring Retreat puts you right in the thick of Utah ski culture, with a handy UTA bus stop within walking distance of the townhouse and a park-and-ride lot right across the street. Shopping, restaurants and other services are all conveniently located within just a few miles of the complex.

The Cottonwood Canyons feature Year Round Fun: The Big Cottonwood and Little Cottonwood Canyons are in the Wasatch National Forest range and are home to winter sports destinations Brighton, Solitude, Alta and Snowbird. During the winter months, these four ski areas boast the lightest, fluffiest snow on earth. Only 40 minutes away from Salt Lake City International Airport, the canyons offer family-friendly day skiing and riding for all ages and levels. The Park City resorts, including The Canyons and Deer Valley are a short hop, skip and jump from the condos and are easily reachable within 45 minutes to 1 hour drive. Summertime activities, including hiking, mountain biking, camping and rock climbing are also available in Big and Little Cottonwood Canyons and surrounding areas. Additionally, the mountain resorts host many art, music and nature events throughout the summer for locals and visitors alike.

About Deb

I am an avid skier and traveler and have enjoyed visiting destinations around the world and living 'like a local' while there. These experiences inspired me to become a vacation home owner. I love owning vacation properties in places I like to travel because it's a cool business that provides lifestyle dividends!

Deb purchased this townhome in 2012

Why Deb chose Salt Lake City

I had been looking for several years for a property in this particular complex because not only is it close to my favorite resort in the world (Alta), it also features a good mix of full-time owners and vacation home owners. The vibe of the neighborhood is great, and the townhome itself just screams 'ski vacation.'

What makes this townhome unique

The Rustic Spring retreat is unique in that it is set up for two families to easily share the space. With two king bed rooms and two full bathrooms on the top floor and a kids' 'bunk room' plus the large, tastefully finished basement 'apartment' there's plenty of room to spread out!

Wonderful Accomodations Close to Ski Hills

  • 5 of 5

Our men’s ski group spent a delightful weekend in this condo. We found the accomodations to be very good. The beds were comfortable. We appreciated having 3 full bathrooms to share amongst us. The kitchen is well-stocked with dishes, utinsels, and so on. We cooked a spaghetti dinner one night. It was nice to be able to sit around the dining room table together.

The condo is very well kept. It was clean and in working order. The owner stays on top of the small details; just before we arrived she ensured that non working outlets in the bathrooms were functional. The hot tub is clean and well-maintained. We enjoyed soaking in it after our days on the hill.

We all agreed that we would rent this place again.

Lovely Rental

  • 5 of 5

The house was beautifully appointed and well situated to ski any of the four ski resorts in the area. The house was well stocked with all of the amenities one would need including a crockpot! House was very clean and the owner was very responsive. The owner even allowed us into the property early on the day of arrival given that the house was ready. I would highly recommend this property to other guests.
