If you are a skier, ski-N-see rentals are walking distance from home, selling lift tickets to all the resorts at a discounted rate. Clean up to date, vacation home with lots of charm. No smoking! No pets! Minutes from pristine snow shoe trails. Their are endless, hiking, biking and snowmobiling trails available to explore. It is easy and affordable to rent snow shoes, skis, bikes, snowmobiles and motor cycles. The rental shops are all within a 1-10 mile radius. Len and I use these mountains continually and are willing to share our 'secrets' with our renters.

The golf courses are amazing and affordable. Because of the mountains, some of the tee box shots are magnificent and elevated, giving you some of the most first hand sights of sunsets that will leave you breathless. Clubs are easy to rent, or bring your own and store them in the spacious 2 car garage that is attached to this 4 bedroom home. We live 3 miles away from this rental and will give you suggestions about anything from grocery shopping to our favorite restaurants in the valley. Come and experience what Salt Lake City has to offer, you will be greatly surprised and hopefully return soon with friends and/or family.

About Erin Pickens

I am a custom builder in the Salt Lake valley I have been doing so for 31 years. My wife is from Chicago we love it here because there are so many outdoor things to do winter or summer.

Erin Pickens purchased this house in 2003

Why Erin Pickens chose Utah

I have several rental properties that I rent out yearly, this property just seemed like the perfect location for someone to stay short term, because it is walking distance from shopping, restaurants, and the Bus Line. Easy to find, straight shot from I-15. There are biking trails, hiking trails, golf courses, ski resorts, shopping areas, restaurants and more. It is easy to get to a variety of locations within 30 minutes or less!

What makes this house unique

Because it is so close to Little Cottonwood road and such a quiet area for someone from out of town, it's a find. Fabulous view of the mountains.

family stay

  • 5 of 5

This stay over the Thanksgiving Holiday was our second time renting this home.

It is a very nice, clean a great place to stay. We stay with our adult children and grand kids, and we all have plenty of space. The downstairs family room is a great place for the kids to hang out!.

Close to shops and the freeway! We will sure rent again when we come back to Utah.

Great home and Great Location

  • 4 of 5

Check in was one of the easiest out of all the places I've stayed. I travel a lot for work. The two main things I look for are location and comfort. This place exceeded my expectations. The owner is very accommodating and will be on property within minutes if needed.

I would recommend this place for anyone!

Spring Ski Trip

  • 5 of 5

This is our 2nd visit staying in this home. Very clean, just like the last time in 2012. Great WiFi. An improvement from last visit. It is very convenient to restaurants and grocery stores in Sandy. We have skied Utah 9 of last 10 years. We are fans of Alta. This house is 20-25 minutes from Albion parking lot. We will stay here again.

Better than expected - perfect location for skiing, shopping restaurants

  • 5 of 5

What a fantastic home. The info had indicated that the house was ideally located for both winter and summer activities. Not only is the house close to everything, Brighton, Solitude, Alta and Snowbird, but it is also very close to restaurants, shops, grocery stores and the light rail which can whisk you to Salt Lake City and points in-between. I even understand that you can catch the light rail at the airport if you are flying and be dropped off within a few miles of the house. The home was very clean and well furnished with excellent views of the mountains. We also enjoyed the two horses living just across the street. Those guys sure do enjoy apples. The parking is excellent with a two stall garage and ample additional parking at the rear of the house. Len, the owner lives just a few miles away and was very friendly and helpful. There were five guys in our group and we all were very pleased with the accommodations, so much so that I have already made reservations for next year. Thanks Len for letting us use your beautiful home. PS ... We especially enjoyed the Black Bear Diner and the pizza place just a block away (and also the "Sub Zero" ice-cream parlor.

perfect Sandy rental house!

  • 5 of 5

One of my dreams was to spend a month in Utah, skiing and exploring the region. Len helped make this dream a reality. This house was the perfect size and location for the two of us, with room for the occasional visitors. It was nicely decorated, very clean, and nicely furnished. The views from the living room are spectacular, and the views from the back of the house are pretty good too. We enjoyed the pair of horses across the street, and fed them carrots and apples when they looked bored. A pleasant surprise was that the house included many of the staples one needs, such as condiments, tea, sugar, spices, etc. Pots and Pans could use an upgrade, but otherwise the kitchen is well provisioned, with enough mugs, plates, etc... to last us awhile before running the dishwasher. Even a tea pot was there, in addition to the coffee maker, so all our caffeine needs could be easily met. The Starbucks across the street also helped in that area!

The location was perfect for us. It's about 20 minutes at most to Snowbird and Alta, and bit longer to Solitude and Brighton. Its walking distance to a Redbox (at McDonalds), grocery stores, restaurants, ski shop, etc. Close also were a variety of movie theaters. Downtown Salt Lake was only 30 minutes away, easily accessed via I-15 or I-215, which are only 5-10 minutes from the house.

The house is on a side street, dead end, off a busy 9400 south. But with the windows closed at night, we couldn't hear any street noise. The Master faces the back of the house, West, so it stayed pretty dark in the room in the morning, which meant we could sleep in til 8 ish and not be blinded by the sun.

The wifi wasn't working properly initially, and Len was great about helping to get it up and running. It was working great by the time we left, so shouldn't be an issue for anyone in the future.

Our focus was on skiing, but if your travels take you to Sandy for any other reason, there is still a lot to do in the area. Note that this house has two modest (single sink) bathrooms, so that, more than the number of bedrooms, will limit how many people might be comfortable here. Great flat screen tv with a decent channel selection, plus a DVD player too, for evening entertainment.
