About David Musselman

David is a professional mediator and arbitrator. Pam is a full time mother of 6 children

David Musselman purchased this cabin in 2011

Why David Musselman chose Utah

We wanted a location that was close to the city that we could access in the summer easily. We also love all of the variety of things to do from biking, fishing, and of course skiing. Being only 15 minutes from Deer Valley was also a big plus.

What makes this cabin unique

For winter travelers, The cabin sits right of the main highway leading to Brighton. This means that if you come to ski, you will not need a snowmobile to get to the cabin. The roads are maintained during the winter and unless there is a major storm 90% of the time you can drive a front wheel drive car right to the front door!

Great place to stay right in the heart of Brighton, Utah. Very cozy cabin with enough entertainment both inside and out to keep everyone entertained. Very happy with our experience here!

Perfectly pleasant stay

  • 5 of 5

We had a blast. The place was perfect for us. When friends came to visit, they were totally awed by the decor. We were across the road from the Silver Lake. We saw moose and deer from the deck. The trails were magnificent. The Silvet Fork had great food. The cupboards were well stocked with every kitchen utensil necessary. The laundry facilities came in handy. There were 12 of us, and we were all quite comfortable. Close to Park City over the Pass. Would gladly stay again, if I get the opportunity to do so. Owner was always available and happy to assist.

great week at Brighton!!

  • 5 of 5

What a neat home! We had the pleasure of a week of skiing in Utah, staying at this very cool home in Brighton. We are three professional couples, used to the finer things in life and high-end travel. This home didn’t disappoint and accommodated us very nicely. We made good use of the hot tub and the sauna in the larger bathroom. The home had incredibly unique decorating features, was clean, and there were plenty of towels for our group. We used the well-stocked kitchen, having breakfast together as a group each morning, and then stayed in for some dinners. The moose in the living room gave us a lot of laughs (if you’d stayed at this home, you know what we mean).

In terms of location and choice of skiing, owner David’s prediction to us was right on: that once we got up to the top of the canyon, we’d never want to leave. We left just once, and that was the first night, to go back down to town to a few grocery stores to stock up and go to a restaurant. For the rest of the week, we didn’t budge. We ate twice a few miles down the road in the canyon at Silver Fork Lodge (what a great place!) and also enjoyed a dinner at Honeycomb Grill in the Solitude village area. No need to trudge back down the canyon for excellent food. (But if staying here in the winter, you most definitely want a four-wheel drive, just in case.)

We decided to only sky both Brighton and Solitude, as we were highly impressed with both—amazing skiing for all levels (our group ranged from green to black diamonds). We also couldn’t believe how decent the food was at both ski resorts, and for reasonable priced—Molly Green’s at Brighton and the Roundhouse at Solitude. Real food, and good food! At both resorts, the lift systems were terrific, the slopes were beautifully groomed each night, there were absolutely no lift lines, and the personnel were incredibly friendly and helpful. But Brighton… well, what a cool place – hoping it doesn’t get too discovered!

David could not be nicer, or more accommodating or responsive. He’d used our vacation home shortly before we used his Utah home, so we’d developed nice communications. When we had a minor problem while we were at his Utah house, he responded immediately, stopping by personally to get it repaired. It was so nice to meet him in person!

If you are an avid skier, wanting fabulous, true skiing without crowds, lift lines, or pretense, and a fabulous home to make your base for your ski trip, this is it!

Host was amazing

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the cabin with a (reasonably responsible) bachelor party of 13 and had a great time. The cabin looks great - as pictured - and was well taken care of. Location was just what we wanted, near Brighton but away from a lot of the tourists. Owning was incredibly helpful. If you book, reach out to him. The owner's son helped us arrange getting groceries, so the kitchen and bar were fully stocked when we arrived. They also helped us (for an extra fee, of course) with shuttling back and forth from the airport, to Park City for a night out, to Snowbird for a day, etc. The level of service and convenience really made the trip.

Great Cabin in Big Cottonwood Canyon

  • 5 of 5

I am a Salt Lake local who rented the cabin for a large group of friends visiting for a long ski weekend. The cabin has everything you could ask for.

The location is fantastic as you could walk to Brighton Ski Resort( Great snow,family friendly,great tree runs and no lift lines!) Only a 5 min drive to Solitude Resort.

The kitchen is well equipped and we ate in most nights as there are not too many dining options nearby. We loved the wood burning fire place, sauna and hot tub.

The big window facing the mountain is worth the price of admission..

Plenty of room for our party of 11

My family looks forward to renting from Dave in the summer. Silver Lake is right next door and when the snow melts Guardiman's Pass will open making Park City an easy drive over spectacular scenery.

Nice Cabin with some headaches!

  • 3 of 5

Let me start off by saying this is a nice cabin, and we had a good time.

I am not one to write negative reviews, but I feel people paying this kind of money should know what our experience was like.

First of all, the cabin is basically two separate living units which is not advertised. Downstairs has its own kitchen, bathroom, bedroom and living area. The laundry room separates the two units. Upstairs has the two bedrooms, loft, kitchen, family room and a bathroom. The bathrooms were updated and very nice. The hot tub was great, but it was a pain to get the top off and on.

The cabin is about 1/4 mile to Brighton which is nice, but it is not walking distance with little ones or any inclement weather. The metal spiral staircase is a pain to get luggage up. Overall, we liked the cabin but not how separated we were on the two floors. We were also told that we would need to text the owner if we wanted the thermostat changed; we wanted it cooler (in the winter), and we could not make this happen ourselves. If I pay thousands of dollars to stay somewhere I should be able to turn the thermostat up or down if needed.

A month before our arrival (we booked in March for a December stay) we received an email asking if we booked the top unit. We didn't know there was an option for one unit or the other because the listing is for a 4 bed 2 bath cabin. The owner's assistant had accidentally booked someone in the downstairs one bedroom unit during our week. After a few days, Dave was able to work this out. It was an unnecessary stress, but we thought everything was good to go. Upon our arrival in Salt Lake City we made our way up to the cabin for our check in. When we arrived, another car was in the driveway. I went inside to find another family who had also rented the cabin for the same week. They rented through a property management company. Luckily these people were very nice and understood that we had reserved the cabin months before they had. After an hour or so the mistake was made right by the company. While this problem may have been the property management company's fault it was still quite an inconvenience to us. The situation could've been very messy, and I was disappointed when Dave told me that the other family "wasn't my concern."

Overall we enjoyed our stay and the skiing was fantastic! Dave was very nice, and when we finally overcame all of the issues we had a good time. Overall it wasn't worth all the stress and inconvenience.
