About Brenda Hall

Maple Mountain Retreat was built by my mother and father as their dream home to raise seven children and ultimately as a magnet to attract their children and grandchildren back home. My Father's motto which is on his gravestone is 'Family First and Nothing Second.' After my father's passing, we decided to make our Maple Mountain Retreat available to other families who share my father's philosophy of creating 'Great Memories with the One's we Love.' We welcome you and your family to our Father and Mother's dream home and hope that you can join us to create wonderful memories for you and your family.

David and Arianne Nemelka

Brenda Hall purchased this estate in 1987

Why Brenda Hall chose Utah

Maple Mountain Retreat has been a part of our family for over 25 years. We had our wedding reception there 25 years ago and it has been a part of our family heritage ever since. The road that the house sits on is named 'Nemelka Lane' and we are hoping that by sharing our Maple Mountain Retreat with others we can keep the home in our family for generations to come.

What makes this estate unique

Private, beautiful setting that is unique in Utah Valley. The home was built with the purpose of creating positive memories for family members of all ages. We hope you love your stay as much as we have loved our times with our family at Maple Mountain Retreat.

The BEST Family Reunion ever!

  • 5 of 5

We spent the most amazing few days and this wonderful home for our Family Reunion. Everyone couldn't get enough of all the activities, pool table, swimming, working out at the gym, basketball and wallyball. The only time we left the house was to buy our food and to go to church. I can not wait to book this home for our next family gathering. There was plenty of room and plenty to do. It was perfect for those who wanted to lounge, and those who wanted to be active. I'm ready to start planning our next stay at this amazing home!

Absolutely fabulous family home!

  • 5 of 5

Just spent the weekend at this great family reunion home. We didn't need to go anywhere with a swimming pool, basketball, tennis, pool table, sandbox and lots of rooms to spread out. The kids loved the room with all the bunkbeds - I think there were 16 just in that room. . We just stayed and let the kids have a great time. We had our Thanksgiving dinner here and there were plenty of ovens, dishes and bowls to make everything. The on-site manager was very attentive to any concerns and the owner was always quick to respond to questions. I would highly recommend this property! What a wonderful place to have a family get together!

Best Rental Home Ever!!!!

  • 5 of 5

This home is fantastic! We rented it the week of Christmas. It was everything and more than we expected. It accommodated our family of 19, perfectly. The house is nicely stocked with essentials i.e. toilet paper, papertowels, shampoo, towels, extra bedding, garbage bags, laundry detergent etc, etc. The racquetball/wallyball/basketball court was a blast. The pool area was great. We had a two year old in our group and we were able to keep the door locked and pool cover on, at times of non-use. The gym has plenty of nice equipment. The beds were all very comfortable. The house is obviously built extremely well, we didn't hear others from our bedrooms. I am a poor sleeper away from my own bed and I got great sleep the whole week there. The view from the house is incredible. It is nestled up against the mountains. Almost daily, deer were seen in the backyard. The heated garage is a plus. Plenty of parking available. A few of us in the group went skiing at Sundance. It was about 30 minutes from the house and very easy to get to. There is an outlet mall not far from the home as well as many good eating establishments. We found a close place to eat called "Kneaders". It is a soup, sandwich and bakery restaurant. Very good! and close to Costco. David, the owner, was a pleasure to deal with. He was always prompt in returning any of my emails and phone calls. All in all we had one of the most enjoyable family vacations yet!, largely due to the beautiful home we rented. I almost hate to recommend this home because I'm afraid others will find it just as nice and it will be booked the next time we want to rent it!

THANK YOU David and family for allowing us to enjoy your home for a week. We hope others will get to create such wonderful memories like we did. Do not hesitate in renting this home, you will NOT be disappointed.

A wonderful reunion!

  • 5 of 5

We had a family reunion for 3 days at this home in 2013. There were 40 of us. We had a spectacular time. The best part about it was that we were all able to stay at one place. That made for lots of spontaneous interactions that made the reunion wonderful. We had planned to go off site but there was no need. The indoor pool and hot tub were awesome. We fully utilized all of the facilities and amenities offered. It was a reunion not to be forgotten and fully enjoyed by all.

Wonderful location for a great reunion or get together

  • 5 of 5

We had a great week together. We played tennis, racquetball, dunk ball, swam, golfed at nearby Hobble Creek, boated nearby, floated a river, hiked. Created a lot of memories. The facility was wonderful for our group of 40 (1 large family with 7 kids, spouses and grand kids). Plenty of room to spread out. The service was great. Thank you...

Great Family Reunion Location, Tons to Do!

  • 5 of 5

We had a family reunion here with about 30 and all had a fantastic time. The quality of activities made it so the family just wanted to be together and led to precious family memories. Some of my family's favorites included the huge yard with lots of games (badminton, croquet, kickball, tetherball), bbq outside, ping pong, tennis, playground and house for the kids, super huge table for playing family board games, racquetball. At least once a day everyone was in the pool! The property is nestled on the back of a mountain range and close to fun activities in Provo, hikes in Hobble Creek or Diamond Fork, or the Springville Art Museum.

The accommodations were great, we had all our teenagers in the bunk room which could easily fit a ton of kids. Rooms were large and had everything we needed. Some of my family really enjoyed the art work and craft around the house, just exploring the home was a treat. The kitchen has nice and well stocked, and there were 2 large bbq grills.

I really appreciated the owners, they went out of their way to accommodate our family on short notice and were very customer focused. In past reunions we had to plan all these activities, for this last one this house had so much to offer we didn't need to drive back and forth and it meant more quality family bonding. I heartily recommend this for a large family reunion, you won't find anything able to comfortably fit this many people and still have so much to do.

Centrally located on Utah's Wasatch Front, our retreat is accessible to all that the Wasatch Front has to offer within a 90 minute or less drive. Just one hour from the Salt Lake Airport, only 70 minutes to Park City, just 15 minutes to Brigham Young University, and 45 minutes to the slopes at Sundance, everything you need is within reach. Minutes from several local restaurants, movie theaters, shopping malls, golfing, water park, biking etc, there truly is something for everyone. On site sledding, racquetball, basketball, tennis, playground and more provide plenty of entertainment without even leaving the property.
