About Greg & Janet Reed

Greg and I are world travelers who live in South Jordan, Utah, with a second home near St. George which gives us a warmer spot to live in during parts of the winter. The cabin is our gather place for family on summer weekends. We'd love to share it with you. There are hiking trails, hotpots, springs and pure mountain air. The newly remodeled cabin offers a roomy mountain retreat and a quiet get away from the city.

Greg & Janet Reed purchased this cabin in 1980

Why Greg & Janet Reed chose Utah

This canyon is beautiful with new paint, bathroom and carpet. If you love nature, you'll love this area in the quakes and pine. It is quite and yet near convenient shopping in Midway and Heber plus the bustling city of Park City. Midway is quaint, but offers many fine dinning restaurants, snowmobile rental and shops.

It's located in Snake Creek Canyon a short drive from Midway, near Soldier Hollow, Deer Valley, Sun Dance and Park City ski areas. There is snowmobiling nearby at Mill Flat trail head.

Enter the cabin into a combined living, dining, and kitchen space. The living room has a flat screen TV, and DVD player, fully equipped kitchen, refrigerator, stove/oven, microwave, and a coffee maker (which is kept in the attached garage). Bathroom, three bedrooms are located on the main floor. One has a king bed, one a queen bed, and an attached sleeping area with a twin bed.

Upstairs we have a large open room, couch, flat screen, playroom, TV, two day/pullout beds, an air hockey table, bathroom, and two additional bedrooms with double beds.

There is also an air hockey table and play room for kids plus a pull down loft with stairs if kids want to venture up there. We also have a large patio and gazebo in the front of the cabin that can be used in the summer.

Located in scenic Snake Creek Canyon right above the Wasatch Golf Course, the cabin is just ten minutes from downtown Midway and 20 min to Park City. In Midway, Pizza Galleria is a fun place to eat and Ridley’s Grocery store has an excellent choice ice cream for only .50 cents a scoop and yes there is ice-skating right in downtown Midway.

If you want to warm up you can soak in the Homestead Crater. If you want to see Park City, take an adventure to Red Rock Junction, which is located in the at the base of the Olympic Park. Redstone Center offers many fun family activities, Cold Stone Creamery and Cinemas.

What makes this cabin unique

The cabin is a mountain retreat that is easily accessible year round. Located near the lovely Wasatch Golf Course, Homestead and Zermatt Resort. There you will have a beautiful secluded mountain view all around yet you are minutes from shopping and restaurants. The cabin lane is sparely populated and quiet.

Cute cabin in the mountains

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at this cabin. There was plenty of room for everyone and the kids had a play area upstairs that they enjoyed. The gazebo was fun for a game area and the patio was great for eating our meals.

The beds were pretty good and the rooms were clean. I don't remember if the information said there was not dishwasher, but if it matters to you, just be aware that you will wash any dishes by hand.

This cabin fit our needs and everyone was happy with our stay. Thanks Janet!

Loved this quaint little cabin in the woods!

  • 5 of 5

It's not much to look at from the outside but this little cabin is deceiving. It had everything our family needed. We loved the deck and the kids enjoyed the playroom. We felt right at home. It's a charming older cabin at a great price. Greg and Janet were great to work with. Thank you!

Perfect cabin to gather a family together!

  • 5 of 5

The canyon and cabin are perfect for family gatherings and create a cozy place for memories. My wife and even liked the throw-back decorations and furniture. If you are looking for luxury then book a big deal in Deer Valley. If you want a comfortable get-away the cabin is perfect without breaking the bank.

Great cabin at an affordable price

  • 5 of 5

The cabin met our needs perfectly (6 adults and 3 kids). While not luxurious, it was spacious and had everything we needed. We spent our time taking walks, playing games, having snowball fights and spending quality time together. We also learned to make cheese at Heber Valley Cheese, and went sledding at Soldier Hollow. We will be back.

An old style cabin in a pretty location.

  • 4 of 5

This cabin is constructed and furnished with comfy cast-offs from the city home, collected and installed over the decades. Not luxury but warm and sufficient for our group of seven adults. Owners were responsive and helpful.

Soldier H., Park City, Deer Valley. 1:20 from Alta
Car: necessary

The cabin is accessible year round in Midway's beautiful Snake Creek Canyon near Wasatch State Park and Golf Course. It is secluded and quiet yet convenient access with space for gathering inside with a large upstairs and deck, gazebo and fire pit.

Park City, 20 min., Soldier Hollow, 5 min. Just 15 min from Heber as well as Jordanelle Reservoir.

There is ATV, snowmobile and four wheeling trails nearby at Mill Flat which is right near the cabin.

It looks close on the map to Brighton and Alta but it's an hour and 20 min. drive. We do have Mill Flat recreation center nearby for snowmobiling and ATV. Ride to Cascade Springs, or Guardsman's Pass. It's an awesome gathering place. You won't be disappointed!
