About the property

3 bedrooms, 1 full bathroom, sleeps 8

This incredible log cabin is nestled among the huge pine trees of Brighton, Utah. It is surrounded by by the beautiful Wasatch mountains, which make skiing and snowboarding in the winter extremely amazing. Brighton Ski Resort is 10 minutes walking distance, and Solitude Ski Resort is only a 5 minute drive. The snow up here is the greatest snow on earth! The Nordic Center is a 5 minute walk, and offers snow covered trails for cross country skiing or snow shoeing in winter, or hiking in the summer. Silver Lake is located here at the Nordic center, and offers amazing hiking trails, and great fishing. Trout abound in this beautiful mountain lake. The cabin itself is secluded, and off the main road. It is a total gut and remodel with no expenses spared. All is new inside and out with the exception of the two story fireplace, and the full log walls. This beautiful cabin is full of charm. There is nothing more cozy than sitting in front of the fireplace on a frosty winter day.

Moose and deer are a common sight right outside of the cabin as well as over at Silver Lake.

About Jami Richardson

We bought this old family cabin about three years ago. It was in extreme disrepair. We have completely rebuilt it, keeping the parts that had tons of character like the two story stone fireplace and the whole log walls. We added dormers, a new roof, an entirely new kitchen and bathroom complete with granite counter tops, stainless steel appliances, and granite tub surround.

We have filled it with all the amenites that anyone would want in a mountain getaway.

Jami Richardson purchased this cabin in 2009

What makes this cabin unique

This cabin truly offers the best combination of the rustic beauty of a hand hewn log cabin with all the modern amenities. It was literally torn down to the four log walls and the chimney and rebuilt. In addition to being walking distance to the Brighton chairlifts and Solitude Nordic Center, you can ski back to the cabin if you don't mind taking a brief shortcut out of bounds from Brighton.

Cozy cabin; comfortable; great location

  • 5 of 5

Description and photos on Homeaway were accurate -- cozy cabin approximately 0.5 miles from Brighton parking lot. Plenty of cooking implements and ingredients. Great fireplace. Comfortable beds with heated blankets. Attentive snow removal service. Good food available at Solitude Village 2 miles away. Thanks for letting us stay.

Wonderful cabin! Perfect for our family!

  • 5 of 5

We just spent 6 wonderful days in Brighton staying at the Cozy Cabin. It was a perfect location for our family and had everything we needed. It was quick access to the slopes during the day, and the kitchen was well equipped for us to cook on the nights we didn't go out. We'd definitely stay there again.

Very nice!

  • 5 of 5

Cabin as described, comfortable and easy to get to from SLC airport. If you're a cook or simply cooking you will appreciate the well appointed and organized kitchen. Close to the Brighton skiing and hiking areas, yet very quiet.

Owner is very helpful and accommodating. First VRBO trip and a good experience.
