About Dave Finch

Beth & Dave are active outdoor people who enjoy motorcycleing (13,000 this year). We like to hike, white water raft and petrogliffing are some of our passions. We have visited 26 Myan Ruing in Meso America. We love to travel in and out of the country.

Dave Finch purchased this house in 1996

Why Dave Finch chose Utah

20 years ago When we set up the Finch Vacation House we tried to provide everything that we could think of to make your stay easy and fun. During our travels we rented places that were suppose to be 'furnished' only to find no pots and pan, salt and pepper , or any of the other staples necessary to be comfortable. We have fixed this problem.

What makes this house unique

Everything you need is located in this neighborhood. There is a grocery store just across the street. A licquore store about a block away. Ski Rental are located both up and down the Fort Union. Many resturants of all types form fast food to fine dining and all in between.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We have been doing Short term Vacadtion Rentals for the past 16 years. We have met many wonderful people and have had many satdisfied customers. We hope you will join us and be one of thoes guests.

The Neighberhood Located in Cottonwood Heights, UT, voted one of the best community in the United States, this home is located just 70 blocks south and 20 blocks east of down town Salt Lake City. It is a beautiful city located next to the Wasatch Mountains. We are on the street that leads into Big Cottonwood Canyon with Solitude and Brighton ski areas. Just to the south is Little Cottonwood Canyon where Snow Bird and Alta resorts are located. About 3 miles to the north is I-80 which goes to Park City, just 20 minutes away, with The Canyons, Park City, and Deer Vally Ski Resorts. About 45 minutes to the north there is Powder Mountain, Snow Basin and Wolf Mountain Ski Areas. To the south is Robert Redford's Sundance Ski Resort. That is 11 Ski areas with in 45 minutes of the house. The UTA Ski bus goes in frount of the house and delivers you to the frount door of any of the ski areas. If you use them you won't have to take that long walk from the parking lot to the ticket booth!

Great stay with the Finches!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the Finch House for 5 weeks from February to early March, 2017. Dave and Beth were wonderful hosts. They took care of everything we needed, while respecting our privacy. Despite being on a main street, the house was quiet. We had easy access to groceries, ski shops, and were within walking distance of the Big Cottonwood ski bus. The house was well stocked. We had plenty of bedding, towels, etc and everything we needed in the kitchen. We cooked most of our own meals, and never lacked for any appliances, serving and dining ware. The hot tub just steps from the back door was wonderful. We highly recommend the Finch house.

Dave and Beth Finch are gracious, friendly and accommodating hosts who run a spacious and well-equipped property. It has wonderful access to the Cottonwood ski areas, and a hot tub! What more could skiers want?

Skiing at Christmas with visit from Santa

  • 5 of 5

Our family spent Christmas skiing in the Cottonwood Canyons. We really enjoyed our stay at the Finch Vacation House. The house is clean and cozy. The beds were comfortable, the kitchen had all the basic utensils and spices to boot. The bus that heads up to the cottonwood canyon ski areas stops about a block away. There are LOTs of good restaurants close to the house and a grocery store right across the street. The hot tub out back was lovely! The Finches were thoughtful, helpful, and very kind. They are a card carrying Santa and Mrs. Claus team and as a special treat came to visit us in full regalia on Christmas eve. We hope to stay here again sometime soon.

Ideal Rental

  • 5 of 5

Cozy, loaded with thoughtful details, spacious, and perfect location. We loved our ski vacation stay at Finch House.

The location was ideal - easy access to Big and Little Cottonwood Canyons and the associated ski resorts: Brighton, Solitude, Alta, and Snowbird. Spent most of our time at Brighton, thirty minutes front door to slopes. Every amenity needed is within blocks of the house - groceries, drug store, gas, massage, restaurants, sledding hill. Freeway access is also within blocks.

House itself wants for nothing. Big backyard for playing, hot tub, kitchen stocked with every possible cooking utensil/equipment, cozy beds, gas fireplace, nice bathrooms, ski racks for hanging up skis, great washer/dryer. Thoughtful details in place throughout from the sheets on the beds to the soft, fluffy bath mats, to loads of board games. If you can think of it, it's here.

Can't wait to come back for another stay!

Xmas 2016

  • 3 of 5

The location for my husband and son was perfect for snowboarding at Brighton. The home and furnishings were old but clean. Had many extras including anything you could imagine to cook with. Our only concern was the owners lived in the basement, which was never noted on the website pertaining to the rental. We felt they came into the home a couple times while we were out which was a bit disturbing. They were very nice people!

Owner's Response: Yes I did come in to the unit to fix the tub you asked me to fix. Other than that we did not enter the unit during your stay.We have been doing this for 20 years and you are the first person who has had these comments. Sorry if you were uncomfortable, but by being close we are able to respond to your needs, shovel the walks, clean the snow off your car, and be available to help you with any needs you may have.

wonderful place, all the comforts of home

  • 5 of 5

This unit is on a busy street, but entry and exit are not so hard owing to the timing of traffic lights. The upstairs part of the home is the rental, and the homeowners live downstairs. They are wonderful people who care totally about your comfort and accommodation.

The apartment is right out of the 1960s, and the cupboards are stocked with herbs, spices, and just about every type of cooking pot, pan, etc. you could ever imagine needing. The fridge is also stocked with salad dressings, coffee, etc. There is no need to bring staples as all are provided.

There is a big TV with DVD, BlueRay, cable, and a big assortment of videos. Master bedroom has a private bath and shower, and two other bedrooms share a bath.

Dan's supermarket is across the street, and Whole Foods is just a block away.

Absent traffic the drive to Alta is about 25 minutes. The bus to Snowbird/Alta stops about a block away, but we have not taken it.

We've stayed at 2088 something like 8 times and we keep coming back. It is not luxury, but it is homey and comfortable and you will be taken care of by the wonderful owners. If you arrive around Christmas you might get a surprise visit from Santa and Mrs. Claus!
