We had a great stay! There were a couple minor issues that we discovered, however the owners resolved everything quickly and easily. The place had all of the nice amenities that you want in a rental - fully equipped kitchen, king size bed, plenty of storage space in the bedroom, two person shower with plenty of hot water, hot tub (literally right outside the front door), sauna, and very convenient location to the ski resorts (Snowbird, Alta, Brighton, Solitude). I believe the hide-a-way is attached to their main house, but we didn't hear any noises from the main house. The entrance and driveway is also completely separate.

The kitchen is a bit small, but there is enough room for two people to cook and eat. If there were four people, you would probably have two people eating at the kitchen table and 2 people on the couch next to it.

The owners made the arrival and check-out process very easy, which was nice.

I would recommend staying here and we will definitely keep this place in mind for future trips!

Great ski accommodations

We really enjoyed our ski vacation and staying at this property. There is a lot nearby and the drive into the mountains was easy in the mornings. I highly recommend this place, you can't beat the location nor the price!

The property was perfect for my little family. Set in a fairly upscale, quiet neighborhood, you immediately had a sense of peace and just a bit of extravagance without being overwhelmed. Plus, it was only a short drive--maybe five minutes--from numerous shopping centers and rwatauarants in Cottonwood Heights.

The apartment was nicely furnished and we'll provisioned with basic necessities--kitchen, bathroom, and bedroom. The beds were amazing!! Incredibly comfortable and cozy, with top of the line bedding. The bathtub in the Queen room was perfect for my daughter; and the shower in the Master with it's dual shower heads was wonderful! Plenty of towels!! The hot tub was great after a long day at Lagoon.

Brian, the owner, was fabulous to work with. He addressed all my questions and concerns promptly, and truly made my family and me feel welcome to the rental. He was even kind enough to set the hot tub temperature so my 2 year old could enjoy it, too!

Would recommend this rental to anyone looking at staying in the area and will likely be using it again for future visits!

Great ski trip and loved the house

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for 5 nights and had a great time! The house is very comfortable, even for a family of 4 (our kids are 21 and 19). We had enough room to spread out and store all of our ski gear. We had epic snow (26" over 3 days), destroyed ourselves on the mountains and came back to a really nice hot tub and sauna. It was even warm enough one afternoon for beers and shacks outside on the patio. Great place for a reasonable price, we'll be back.
