This large, luxurious, and updated home is right in the heart of Old Town. A short 4-block walk takes you to Main Street for dinner or shopping, and it's just as close to the base of Park City Mountain Resort for skiing or snowboarding in the winter. The base of Deer Valley is less than 2 miles away, and The Canyons is only about 4 miles. As one of our guests wrote in a review, 'This is a great rental property, walking distance to both the Park City town and ski slopes (with ski boots on!)'
We picked our home in part because it is in the heart of what makes Park City so great. To get to the free Park City bus, you just walk 3 blocks down 10th Street, to Park Avenue. (And by being close to the bus route but not on it, there are no noisy buses that pass by our home during the evening.) And once you leave the airport in Salt Lake City, you can typically be in our driveway in less than 45 minutes.
The other reason is because it is very large for Old Town. With two distinct master bedroom suites, two distinct living areas (one on the top floor, and the other on the bottom), and two additional bedrooms with bunkbeds, you can enjoy traveling with another family, or with your extended family, without feeling crowded.
For over a dozen years before we bought our home, we rented beautiful VRBO homes in Park City/Deer Valley. Often even large homes have only one master bedroom, and when two families travel together, that can be awkward. It's not an issue here. Each of our master bedrooms is large, with a beautifully finished private bathroom. We also knew we wanted a home with two separate living spaces. Kids can play pool, board games or watch movies in the game room, while the adults enjoy the living room.
Everything in our home was brand new in 2012 (and some things are newer than thatthen), and we have tried to think of everything to make your trip as enjoyable and relaxing as possible. The dining table comfortably seats 8, and bar stools for another 2. The living room and gameroom each have 60 inch HDTV theatre systems with Blu-ray players. The master bedrooms each have 46 inch HDTVs, and speaker systems to charge and listen to your iPhones or iPods. We provide a laser printer and scanner, and it's easy to connect to it via WiFi; whether you have some work that unfortunately will not wait, or you just want to print your boarding pass, you're all set. There is a whole-home humidifier as well, in case any noses in your group are affected by the dry winter air.
There is a pool table in the gameroom, along with a wet bar and mini-fridge. We love to be outside all day when we're in Park City, but there is no shortage of fun things to enjoy at home after a day of skiing, snowboarding, or mountain biking. (In addition to the regular cross-country and downhill mountain biking, The Canyons opened a gravity mountain bike park in 2011, with an ambition to be like Whistler -- it's a lot of fun!)
From pots and pans, to nice kitchen knives, to a wide variety of spices, if you want a break from Park City’s excellent restaurants, you will find our home offers a well stocked kitchen. In each bathroom, you will find a good hair dryer. The laundry room has a full size washer and dryer. And simply because we have had travelers ask, yes, we provide all of the linens and towels you would want during your stay.
If you’re visiting Park City in the summer, you can expect a lot of bright sunshine, with cool desert nights. During the day, it can be warm in July and August, but we have central air conditioning throughout the house, as well as an evaporative cooler (also sometimes called a swamp cooler) for the upper living area. The game room, on the lowest level, remains nice and cool throughout the summer, even with the A/C off.
A few additional things to note --
* If you'd like your kitchen pre-stocked with food, we are happy to arrange that for you for a reasonable service charge.
* This is a 100% non-smoking home.
* We offer our home to adults and to families, with and without children. We are unable to accommodate college students, and the house cannot be used for parties.
* We love pets, but regret that no animals are allowed in our home.
When we decided to buy this home, our goal was to create the place WE want to stay in, and are proud to have our friends visit. We think you'll love it as much as we do.

About Karen and Brian Burgess (1008Empire)
We've been coming to Park City for years and years, and we finally found the Park City home we wanted to own.
Karen and Brian Burgess (1008Empire) purchased this House in 2012
Why Karen and Brian Burgess (1008Empire) chose Old Town
We had a long list of requirements, mainly because we love traveling with other families: Two REAL master bedroom suites; two REAL living spaces, so our kids could enjoy their time with their friends as much as we were enjoying ours; and luxurious finishes, so those rare vacation days really FELT like a vacation. We also wanted to be able to walk everywhere, so it needed to be in the heart of Old Town, and close to everything. We found it!
What makes this House unique
The guests who have stayed in our home have been so kind to us, and as part of that, some of them have written extremely detailed and helpful reviews. Maybe the best way to get a sense of what makes our home special is to read what they have said.

We enjoyed our stay thoroughly. The house is great, with plenty of room for two families. The distance to the ski lift is a bit far for walking with kids, but there is plenty of parking and so one adult would drop everyone else off, go drop the car and then walk back, it was pretty simple.
Great house and great location!
Very nice house in an ideal location - short walk to town, and a short walk to a slope that takes you right down to town lift. Hosts were very responsive and extremely welcoming!
Very nice clean property. Great location, good access to skiing and shopping.
We had a great time with family for three days of skiing and family time. The property was great with plenty of room for 7 adults. It was a short drive or walk to the main Park City Ski Base. I recommend this property as well as Park City for winter or summer vacations.
Perfect vacation home in the heart of Park City!
Home was just as described. It was perfect for our group of 3 families. There is 1 master suite on the main floor, 2 bunk rooms on the next level down, and another master suite on the 3rd level down. Parents got their own rooms and the kids slept in one of the bunk rooms. The home had everything we needed, wifi, pool table and hot tub. We did a fair amount of cooking and the home had everything we needed including oils and spices which these days, most rentals don't have. Home is within walking distance to Main St, Park City Mountain and local bus stops. Our group of 5-7 year olds were able to walk to both Main Street and Park City Mountain. Brian was extremely responsive throughout the booking process and even during our stay at the home, giving us storm updates/warnings. I can't wait to reserve this home for our next trip to Park City and highly recommend it to others!
The owners were extremely attentive to all our needs and requests.
This is a luxurious family home, well appointed and equipped with high quality crockery and glassware- the best we have experienced in a rental property in Park City. We will definitely recommend this property to friends and family.
Amazing ski vacation close to town lift
Brian was a great host. The house is perfect for 5 friends who want their own room to sleep in. It had everything we needed to cook breakfast and hit the slopes. Reasonably close walk ( less than 10 mins ) to town lift and restaurants / shops. Good amenities including hot tub, pool table, and plenty of tvs to relax after a long day. Would stay again.
Our home is an easy walk to Main Street, or to the base of Park City Mountain Resort -- and it's a short ride on the free Park City bus to The Canyons (4 miles) or Deer Valley (less than 2 miles).
