Overview

Park City House Rental Photos and Description

House, 2 Bedrooms + Loft, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

On Main, a great location for your vacation headquarters. Steps away from the free Park City trolley that will take you to the slopes, within minutes of Old Town restaurants, shops, and night life, this historic home offers you luxury, convenience, and instant access to the many area activities and events. No car necessary but onsite, off-street parking is provided.

Located at the top of Main in the heart of Park City, our Main Street home is a totally rebuilt miner's home that has received the Park City Historical Society Preservation Award. Although the original exterior has been preserved and restored, the interior is entirely new and beautifully appointed - including gas fireplace, jacuzzi tub, and steam shower. This two-bedroom plus loft home is perfect for 2 couples or a family with 2-3 children. Free WiFi now available.

'Poison Flume,' Park City's mountain stream, flows behind the property, lending its gurgling sounds to the charming atmosphere of Old Town.

About The Owner

We moved to the Salt Lake area with our two children in 1984. Never dreamed we'd stay here so long, but we absolutely love the environment. We learned to ski downhill, hiked, biked--this is the place (in case you didn't notice) for so many outdoor activities. Of course Utah also boasts beautiful red rock country a few hours away. Once you get addicted to that, there's no going back! So although our main house is in Salt Lake because of work and school, we loved Park City and looked to find a little "miner's shack" in the area. Our realtor who was showing us around knew the folks who owned our place and took us to see it before it went on the market. It was "quite primitive" but we loved it and the location instantly!

The Owner purchased this house in 1990

Why The Owner chose Park City area

My husband and I thought it would be fun to get a small place in Park City that we could potentially fix up. Of course, we personally had neither the time, talent or the inclination to do the work ourselves. After about 10 years we decided we had to do something major to fix up the place. (No foundation, upstairs floor slanted a lot!) So we did a total gut and moved the house up and back from the street, put in a wonderful foundation that gave us a huge master bedroom downstairs, a dining alcove and a little porch on the upper floor--plus a driveway! Park City Historic Foundation even contributed a little money to the rebuild. Put a lot of love, time, and money into the effort but very happy with the results.

What makes this house unique

Location, location, location! Plus we think we did a pretty good job furnishing it with top notch appliances and furniture. Very comfortable, cozy.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thanks for a terrific time! The house is beautiful. We felt at home. The kids loved the creek. Thanks again for everything.

Unique, Well-Located, Fully-Equipped, Family-Friendly

  • 5 of 5

I am a very picky user of VRBO. After identifying all of the possible accommodations, I read every review posted and contact the owners to see what type of response they make before making a choice. This rental delivered in spades! Carol is a delight to deal with -- accommodating, willing to answer multiple questions, and has high standards when it comes to the condition of her property. The miner's cabin is anything but rustic in the interior. Everything is provided, the spacious design gives everyone plenty of space, the beds are comfortable, the water pressure great, and the atmosphere cozy and inviting. Eating-in is a pleasure especially with small children as the kitchen has everything including a cupboard of essentials. While shopping is 1 1/2 miles away, the free bus service plus trolley makes it doable. Restaurants are just a short walk downhill as is the Town Lift. Had a wonderful, stress-free holiday and would highly recommend staying here, especially families.

Perfect House!

  • 5 of 5

This house was perfect for my family of 5's ski trip. Located at the top of Main Street, everything downtown was within walking distance. All the ski resorts were very close as well. The house is extremely comfortable and cozy and the master bedroom is huge with lots of storage. The house came stocked with a large amount of condiments and basics for cooking. Even the bathrooms had lots of extras in case something was left at home. The owner, Carol, graciously accepted all our requests and even gave us a complimentary bottle of wine. We would and hope to definitely stay here again. Could not have made a better choice!

Great house with great location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for a ski trip with a family of five and it was perfect. Nice dining area to discuss daily ski runs. House is all set up for arrival with all cooking needs and dishes/utensils. To top it off, a bottle of wine when we arrived. Tired skiiers at most meals in the house. We walked to Main Street for dinner which was a five minute walk. And plenty of place to park for the trip. Highly recommend!

Excellent place to stay and great location

  • 5 of 5

This home was very nice with great history behind it. The book on the coffee table that shows what the house has been through is very cool. No need to worry about parking in the town as this house comes with a driveway and you are only steps away from all the action of Park City. The owner is very pleasant and helpful. Everything is ready upon arrival. There was even a bottle of wine waiting for our arrival. Will return again I am sure next time Park City is on the schedule for a boarding trip.. Thank you Carol!!!!

Wonderful home and great location

  • 5 of 5

For our recent business trip to Park City for Sundance, this home was our sanctuary. Not only is it charming, clean, and well-appointed, the location is perfect for visitors to the film festival...and just up the street enough to be away from the masses, but close enough to walk to everything. I'm so glad we stayed here!

Can't wait to return. Thanks to Carol for being a joy to work with, too.

Family Spring Break Ski Vacation

  • 5 of 5

This home was perfect for our family. Our children loved having their own upstairs retreat and we loved the spacious master bedroom and bath downstairs. The kitchen was well stocked with anything we needed for cooking - and even basic seasonings, oils, a Brita, etc. The walk to all of the great shops and restaurants on main was even shorter than we expected. We agreed we couldn't have picked a better location. To top it off, Carol was a true pleasure to work with throughout. We can't wait to return.
