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.

Stunningly beautiful!

  • 5 of 5

Amazing, wonderful vacation! The owners are easy to reach and readily available. I even looked to book the house again over the holidays but it is already booked.

Good and bad

  • 3 of 5

This home is absolutely beautiful. John is a pleasure to work with. If this hadn't have been the case, I would have rated lower. I was disappointed in ways. We had issues with the steamer, which only worked once then needed to be flushed. Hot tub was cold. The main complaint is, even with the portable AC--it's just too hot in there at the end of July. It was so warm in there. Uncomfortable unless standing in front of the portable AC unit. If I could do it again I would only stay there in the winter. It would be cozy with all the fireplaces. Again--it was a GORGEOUS home. I would stay again. Just in the winter.

Owner's Response: If the guests would have called me, I could have fixed the steamer or turned up the spa. Also if windows and doors are opened in morning and after sunsets, it cools down nicely.

Summer in Huntsville

We had a wonderful stay at this location. The log home was very spacious and accommodating. There were 8 adults and 7 children, and we all fit well. Plenty of space to spread out and most importantly, there were several bathrooms. I would recommend this property.

Beautiful home and view

  • 4 of 5

We have stayed at several VRBO locations and have been treated well by all of the owners/managers, but Mr. Jensen was especially accommodating and available. All of our meals for a week were homemade and we were able to find all necessary cooking equipment. This "log cabin" was beautiful inside and the view was spectacular. Our stay coincided with unusually hot temperatures for this location and since the home does not have central air some evenings were uncomfortable. Mr. Jensen provided us with a large portable swamp cooler and several fans. As we have several young grandchildren, I was worried about the lack of outdoor play area, but they seemed to make up for it by finding unique places to play inside. One granddaughter planned an extensive, often messy, game that we were able to play outside the front of the house with no problems. There was not enough space or tables for all of us so we brought tables and chairs from home. There is a covered area right off of the kitchen which worked most evenings as there was a nice breeze. As I initially walked through the house, I wished we had come in the winter as the coziness and fireplace in the main living area were so inviting. This would be a great place for adults looking for a relaxing place to stay after a day of skiing, but we made it work for us.

The cabin was beautiful inside and out.

  • 4 of 5

We had 14 adults and 10 small children and had plenty of room. The kids rode their little scooters and bikes on the large deck. The view off the deck was beautiful. The bunk room over the garage was pretty warm, but we were having very hot weather.

We loved renting this beautiful log home and will be renting it again!

  • 5 of 5

This sure is an amazing log house to rent! We rented it for a family ski trip and it worked out perfect. The house was very well maintained and clean. It had plenty of towels, blankets, pillows, and beds. There was plenty of rooms to sleep in and space for everyone to relax and enjoy themselves. The kitchen was well stocked with plates, silverware, pots, pans, and everything else you would need to cook. The game room was a family favorite of the house where we played hours of pool and foosball and also enjoyed watching movies on the big screen TV. The indoor hot tub was great to have after a long day of skiing and it was nice that we didn't have to walk outside to hot tub. The heated floors were amazing and also very nice to have during the winter. The views were specular and it was fun to see some wildlife roaming around in the hills. We would definitely rent this house again the next time we come to Utah.
