About John Jensen

UPS pilot . Enjoys winter and summer sports in Utah and the Gulf Coast.

John Jensen purchased this estate in 2000

Why John Jensen chose Utah

I wanted a mountain home that resembled the Snowbasin/Sun Valley lodges, didn't find it so I built it

What makes this estate unique

Wild life viewing is incredible, from, Deer, Moose, Foxes, Wiid Turkeys, etc.

Wake up in the morning to see what new snow has fallen on Snowbasin.

Views are spectacular from the morning Alpen glow to the lights of Ogden silhouetting

the mountain ridges at night.

Great for large family or multiple families

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful large mountainside home skillfully built with huge logs reminiscent of the construction of the Snowbasin ski area day lodges. Great views across the valley to Snowbasin mountain. Ample room for a large family or multiple families. Varied living areas provide multiple locations to hang out and relax by the many fireplaces. Kitchen provides all you need to serve a large group. Three car garage a big plus in the winter. We stayed a week for a ski trip to Snowbasin and all thoroughly enjoyed the stay. Beware the driveway is steep and can ice up in the winter. Owner does provide service to assist clearing driveway.

Snowbasin Ski Trip

  • 5 of 5

Just came back from a ski trip with friends where we stayed at this house. GREAT house for skiing and coming back and relaxing with friends. I would recommend this property to all in the future. BEAUTIFUL views out the back deck. The owner was responsive with any questions we had. In all a great experience.

Beautiful but not taken well care of....

  • 1 of 5

We booked this log home for a family vacation. When we got there the room above the garage was 59 degrees. I had three young children with and were not able to sleep up there....... The hot tub was also not taken care of and the chemicals were off. We were not able to use it our entire stay. That was one of the main reasons we booked this property. Very disappointing. Also... there was hardly any hot water. We would come home freezing from skiing and have to rock paper scissors for who got to shower first. Nothing worse than a cold shower after skiing!! Also the basement bathroom had a light that dripped dirty water on you when you were using the toilet. During our stay pipes also froze in the garage and we had water running everywhere!!!!! We also had hardly any working lightbulbs!! We had to take them from different areas in the house in order to see in our bathrooms. I would not recommend staying at this accommodation. The pictures look nice but overall this place was not maintained well at all. Every place I have stayed at through VRBO has been very nice... but not this property.... Definitely not up to our cleanliness standards. I would pass on this one!! Unless you like cold showers, no light, dirty hottub, and a cold house!!!!!

Owner's Response: Prior to the arrival of this guest we had an arctic express cold come through. Had the guest called me soon enough I could have helped their dilemma sooner. I had extra heaters for the garage bunk room that can run, The showers run of a boiler that also operates the house. If I had a call I could have told the guests hove to turn the boiler up and increased the hot water capacity. The hot tub was serviced in fact I had to drain most of the water out prior and refill because prior folks didn't shower prior to use. It had full chemicals. Yes because of the excessive cold, garage pipes did freeze. but I had a neighbor come up and secure it and a plumber the next day. Also the boiler exhaust runs over the downstair master bath. It opened up and vented steam exhaust.After guests left, we cut into ceiling a repaired the problem. Sometimes in snow country, things happen. But with better communication we could have resolved issues quicker.

Like Renting An Entire Hotel

  • 5 of 5

The great room, with its soaring ceiling, wraps around a warm and comforting gas fireplace, built from tons of stone. The walls and joists are massive wooden logs, giving the feeling of a lobby at a National Park hotel. With plenty of parking, as well as a fully-equipped kitchen, game room and gym, and lots of cozy nooks for interactions of all kinds, it's an excellent choice for parties, family gatherings or a business retreat. I held a family reunion with 18 attending festivities and 12 sleepovers, and it was perfect for our group. We tremendously enjoyed the scenic views from the huge balcony, socializing around the kitchen island, playing pool and foosball until the wee hours of morning, and the wild turkeys wondering around the property. Beautiful afternoon sunlight and artificial lighting at night. A lot of love and planning went into this home. I give it five stars, and thank the owner for this nostalgic and memorable experience.
