Perfect Ski House for Our Group

  • 5 of 5

We had a great vacation. We were 3 families including 8 children ages 4-12 on Spring Break ski trip. The house layout includes two comfortable gathering areas to enjoy time together and large bedrooms for quiet time if needed. The kids really enjoyed the down stairs area with 2 bedrooms, rec room with comfy seating, television and a large selection of movies. The large dining room table allowed us to enjoy meals together. The house is fully equipped with everything you need. There were no surprises, everything was exactly as it says in the description.

Due to late season conditions, we could not ski right up to the house, but it was only a short walk to the house. Brian Head is a great ski area. We all had so much fun.

No major food stores near by, so bring what you need. However, there is a country market a short distance from the house that has most anything that you may forget or decide you need at the last minute. The Grand Lodge, just down the street, has a restaurant and nice lounge/bar area upstairs.

I highly recommend this home. We will be back next year and will stay here again. We really enjoyed the responsiveness of the owners. Easy to communicate with; nice people. Can't wait until next year.

Great ski house

  • 5 of 5

Three families 6 kids plenty of room. Loved the fact the kids were downstairs and with the door shut couldn't hear them. Nice new big flat screen to watch the superbowl. TV/cable went out but Gwen was available to walk thru fixing it (just in time for the big game)

So much snow it was awesome sledding ....a little challenging to ski in ski out but it's absolutely possible.

Will stay here again!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for helping us re-program the channels. The cable company had just done an upgrade. Glad we made it happen in plenty of time for the Super Bowl. Looking forward to having you stay with us again.

Beautiful Home!

  • 5 of 5

This review is long over due since we traveled to Brian Head back in August of 2015, but my family had such a wonderful time staying at the house that it deserves to be reviewed again! First off, Gwen, the owner, was AMAZING to work with. We had a mix up with trying to reserve the home, but she was so patient and understanding and just worked with us in holding the house for the week we wanted. We just really appreciated how helpful and kind she was to us. We had a big family going up to Brian Head and the house was the perfect size for all of us! It was super clean upon arrival. The really nice thing about the house besides the spacious bedrooms, cozy decor, super functional kitchen, and amazing view, is that the dining room table was big enough for every single family member to sit around it each night for dinner! It made for such special family dinner times during our stay. The house had enough bathrooms that we were all comfortable and enough beds for everyone......there were 12 of us. The kids loved the downstairs area to play games and hang out in. My sister and I loved being able to go home with clean laundry with the washer and dryer in the house too!

Gwen is totally right about making sure to stock up on supplies before coming up to the house as it took my husband a while to get a few more missed supplies once we were already at the house. Also, Gwen is correct about being aware of altitude sickness and staying hydrated well before making your way up the mountain, as the house is at a pretty high altitude.

We thank Gwen and her husband for opening their beautiful home to us and allowing us to really enjoy our stay in Brian Head!

Owner's Response: Thank you Aubrey for your kind review. So glad that you and your family enjoyed our home as much as we do. We also stock up on food before coming up the mountain even though there are two small grocery stores in Brian Head. However, they are handy for an occasional forgotten item and of course ice cream! Hope you visit us again.

Great cabin with room for all, had great weather and skiing was wonderful. The cabin is set back from the trail so be ready to walk to get home. Easy to ski out down to Navajo lift to get started. Cabin was well stocked with the items you will need during your stay. We spent the week and had no issues, Gwen was easy to get a hold of if needed before, during and after our stay. Look forward to next year.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your review. So glad you enjoyed the cabin and had a great time. Sorry you were not able to find the return ski trail. It is the same trail you went out on right next to the house. We have a map in the house booklet or please feel free to give us a call next time and we would be happy to assist you. Until you're familiar with it, it is easy to miss some turns.

We could not have been happier with our stay at this beautiful cabin. We had two families of 6 and 7 and had plenty of room. The two master suites upstairs were great for the adult couples and the basement was perfect for the kids. There was great access to the mountain and we had such a wonderful time. Thank you
