Overview

About the property

2 bedrooms plus sleeping loft, 2 baths, sleeps 6

There are few resort experiences as unique as Sundance and few places that you can spend a few days that are as idyllic as this setting at Sundance. The branches of old growth firs brush the cabin’s windows. A year-round stream runs along the walls providing ambiance and natural air conditioning. It gurgles under an eating/barbecuing deck leading to an 8 person hot-tub, tucked back in the pines. Two bedrooms have private decks overlooking the stream. The cabin is airy inside with walls of windows; you feel like you’re living in the trees. The whole house has radiant heating so even on the snowiest days you can be barefoot in the forest. Curl up in front of the fireplace and watch TV or listen to music on a state-of-the-art theater sound system. Cook a meal in a gourmet kitchen when you’re not in the mood to make the short walk through the woods to the great restaurants at Sundance.

We live and work nearby and will do anything we can to help you enjoy your stay

The Unique Benefits of this House: Live music nights at Sundance's Owl Bar when the fire is blazing in the back room. Sunday Brunch at the Foundry Grill - particularly on patio days when the weather is fine. Sunrise bike rides on the mountain when you're likely to catch a moose or deer at every turn. Sunset hikes back from Stewart Falls - two miles away through a high mountain meadow. Summer movie nights at the outdoor theater. Heavy snowfall days when our road is impassable for a couple hours and the hot tub is cranking. Snowshoeing on full-moon nights when the Nordic center opens the trails at night.

Why the Owner Chose Sundance: Our family bought this home to be our home. We lived here for a magnificent decade. But when our family outgrew the house we reluctantly moved nearby and hope that vacationers will enjoy the house as much as we have.

Why David chose Utah

Our family bought this home to be our home because at Sundance it is entirely possible to have an incredibly unique lifestyle experience - to be able to live in a quiet alpine resort (typically an oxymoron) and still have a vibrant professional job market within 15 minutes drive (Provo/Orem).

We lived here for a magnificent decade. But when our family outgrew the house we reluctantly moved nearby and hope that vacationers will enjoy the house as much as we have.

Absolutely enchanting

  • 5 of 5

WOWZA! The architecture in incredible and truly designed for this lot in Sundance. The water welcomed us and it was easy to stay connected to the outdoors even inside with all the windows. We saw mule deer, lots of smaller birds and a large group of wild turkeys almost daily. We have never stayed in a place as much as we did here, but it was so serene that we didn't want to leave. We cooked most of our meals in the well-equipped kitchen and/or out on the grill and definitely enjoyed the hot tub.

David was wonderful to deal with and provides his guests with a very comprehensive house guide. Not sure about you, but I try not to contact the host if at all possible. We were fortunate to meet David and got to hear all about the design and history of this incredible house.

Some of our favorite features: radiant floor heating, having robes provided, a very comfortable bed, luxury sheets and fluffy towels and the WATER!

Truly relaxing at every level!

Interesting but not like the advertised pictures and description

  • 3 of 5

This is an attractive property that is well maintained on the inside. There were two issues which jumped out at us during our stay. First, there is only one real bedroom.... the master on the second floor. The other "bedroom" only has three walls, one of which is a window. The fourth wall is created by sliding a curtain across the opening to the living room. Not exactly private or enclosed... or a bedroom. Second, the heating system makes this large booming noise in the background on and off all night... kind of sounds like a truck dropping a heavy load outside on the driveway. We could not figure it out at first, but then it became more identifiable. For light sleepers it can be a challenge.

The outside needs some work... sweeping the walks, patio and balconies; cleaning out the gutters and roof, etc. Comes off as unkempt.

Clean, comfortable, unique, and fun

  • 5 of 5

Great property and even better owners. David was above and beyond with helpful instructions and quick communication.

Property is beautiful, great for our 2 couple weekend stay. Clean and comfortable inside and out, cool architecture and design would be neat for kids.

Check out the Stewart Waterfall Hike, it's a must-see! Town is nearby for supplies/food.

My only complaint is the cabin is not as remote as it appears/ I thought. There are neighbors. The good news is it's still a quiet street, the other cabins are beautiful and the river cuts down any noise you may give off or hear. The beautiful cabin and Utah scenery made up for it, just thought I'd note in case you're looking for a remote spot to get completely away from people.

In summary I'd like to thank the owners for being awesome and say I would definitely go back and I would definitely recommend this cabin.

Great location and beautifully put together

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed at Windows on the Water for one week. We truly enjoyed our stay in this beautiful home. The decor it's very nice and well put together. It was well stocked with basic supplies and kitchen utensils. We never went out to dinner given it was such a beautiful location to eat outside. Wonderful nearby hiking. Any questions were quickly addressed by the owner.

Warm Welcome

  • 5 of 5

The home was perfect for our short stay to attend a family wedding. The house was clean and the amenities were easy to access. We had a question on how to work the AC and when we called the owner, he answered immediately and was able to walk us through the instructions. It's a short drive, or even walk, to the Sundance village. It was too fast of a weekend for such a beautiful place.
