About David Nemelka

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

Why David Nemelka chose Mapleton

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.

Great loaction and space for a large family reunion.

  • 5 of 5

We had a great experience with this rental. From the start with booking and planning, the staff were easy to communicate with and answer question. This property is just as advertised and has so much to do! In a beautiful location, it’s well maintained with every amenity you would expect. We slept 45 people (9 separate families) very well in this house. Our party had small children ranging to teenagers and adults—everyone was happy! I highly recommend this and would use the facility again!!!

Home is not maintained!!!

  • 1 of 5

Home is equipped with many things that are great for a family reunion and the location is great, BUT, it has not been maintained as it should be. Many items, like lights, sounds systems, tv's, dishwashers, toilets, grills, garbage disposal, etc., did not work properly. Many fix up items wouldn't even require much money to fix really, but are just not being taken care of. The place also was not as clean as it should be, and just felt run down and dirty overall. I was thinking of putting a entire list of items identified, but I think simply put the home is just not maintained well enough for the asking price and I would not recommend it or stay there again.

Amazing Family Retreat!

  • 5 of 5

We gathered as extended family to celebrate the life of our Father. We had four generations of family. From the old to the young, the house was perfect! There was something for everyone of all ages to do! Swimming, tennis, basketball, a play house for the little kids too! It is really set up for family reunions! It was so nice to have everything right there. When the kids wanted to swim, we didn't have to pack up and go anywhere! just suit up and swim! The kitchen was really big, with plenty of space for all of our food and places for everyone to sit! Totally amazing! This retreat home has everything!

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 swimming, racquetball, basketball, tennis, playground and more provide plenty of entertainment without even leaving the property.
