Overview

Brighton Cabin Rental Photos and Description

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.

P.S. No television or internet.

About Mark 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.

Mark 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.

Perfect for family with active kids

  • 5 of 5

Great cabin. The owners were very responsive and helpful. The cabin was well stocked with supplies so all we really needed to do was bring meals, snacks and drinks. Perfect location to use as a base for excursions to Park City/Midway/Sundance and hiking around the area though it was also nice just hanging out in the mornings and evenings around the fire pit. We were blessed with visits from two moose and three deer (those that we saw anyway) literally right next to the cabin during our stay. We would stay again during the summer and could easily see ourselves trying a winter stay in the future.

Great get away!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our quick get away at Mark's cabin. The location is perfect, walking distance to Brighton and Silver Lake. The cabin sits back in the woods just enough to feel secluded from the hustle bustle at the resort. Everything at the cabin was perfect. Nice and clean, plenty of room for the 5 of us. Would love to stay again.

perfect location

  • 5 of 5

This cabin worked out great for us during our ski trip in Utah. It is situated right between Solitude and Brighton ski resorts-less than 5 minute drive to each. It is a short walk to the Nordic center to cross country ski and snowshoe. If you'd rather spend your time enjoying the outdoors than driving or riding a bus to get to where you're going to ski, then this is the place for you! The cabin was clean; the photos represented the cabin well; the kitchen was well-equipped; the fireplace was great (and plenty of wood), lots of games to choose from. In short, we had everything we needed! The owner's directions from the airport led us right there without a problem. We rented a 4WD vehicle from Rugged Rental (we had a very good experience with them). I would NOT recommend trying to get there without 4WD. We would stay here again in a heartbeat. Thank you for this great cabin!
