CONTINUE READING IF YOU'D LIKE SOME 'INSIDER'S TIPS' ABOUT OUR AREA:

Our community is nestled in the valley at the mouth of one of the most important canyons for outdoor lovers; American Fork Canyon. All outdoor activities are available; hiking, 4-wheeling, fishing, camping - either in campgrounds or rough-camping free of charge, the most beautiful mountain range is accessible only 10 minutes from our door. Also, this is snow-skiing heaven with the following ski resorts at your disposal: Alta, Brighton, The Canyons, Deer Valley, Snowbird, Solitude, Sundance and Park City.

Many comment that our central location has more good shopping available than any other area than previously experienced. Two miles south is the Grasslands shopping center with Costco, Walmart, Target, Kohls, Massage Envy, and dozens of well-know businesses, restaurants and banks. Two miles west (Lehi) is Cabela's mega-store and the new Tanger Outlet Mall, restaurants businesses and mega-plex movie theaters. There are 3 malls - 2 south and one north - and if you are a real shopping connoisseur - then you'll want to shop at the queen mother of all posh malls - the new City Creek Mall. It is an experience all on its own, not to mention the limitless tours across the street on Temple square where you can tour the top of the colossal Conference Center for not only an incredible (free) view of the city, but also tour the rooftop gardens. Afterwards you could experience some fine dining at the famous 'Roof' restaurant across the street with incredible views + a gourmet buffet.

Thanksgiving Point is a star attraction with museums, wedding venues, petting zoos, shopping and huge gardens. It is a wonderful place to spend the day.

There are lakes scattered all over the area with marinas and amenities.

If you bike - you have come to the right place! Our new Murdock trail system is a continuous trail through beautiful mountain areas that will take you from our home all the way to the mouth of Provo Canyon and beyond. This is one of the best improvements to the area as it provides a safe, beautiful trail to get out onto and enjoy the beauties of this area. The famous Alpine Loop is loved and used by bike enthusiasts consistently. It starts at the mouth of our canyon and winds all the way through the mountains, past Sundance Ski resort and back down into Provo Canyon (where you can pick up the Murdock trail to get back home.)

If you are a BYU fan, or a U fan, we are centrally located in between the two schools - where you can support and enjoy events at either or both venues.

If you are a foodie - you are in luck! The area boasts 3 culinary schools and every type of restaurant imaginable - Thai and Indian being a favorite.

If you are looking for culture, don't miss out on the fabulous events at The Capitol Theater, Hale Center Theater and CenterPoint Legacy Theater. The Utah Symphony performs at Abravanel Hall. The Utah Opera, directed by the talented Christopher McBeth has a full and wonderful schedule of upcoming performances.

Looking for something a little more relaxed? Lagoon Amusement Park will keep you busy and happy all day long with inventive and stomach-flipping rides, a huge water park and tons of eateries. The Hogle Zoo, Botanical Gardens, The Natural History Museum of Utah, The Living Planet Aquarium, Tracy Aviary, Airborne Trampoline Arena, The Tree House Museum, Red Butte Gardens, Historic Wheeler Farm, Discovery Gateway Children's Museum, The Leonardo Contemporary Museum, Seven Peaks Water Park and Boondock's Fun Center each make for entertaining outings.

If you are a sport's lover, get ready to lose your voice because there is always something going on with the Jazz, the fierce college rivalries in the area, the Bees and Real Salt Lake, BYU basketball game and the U's football. Even UVU is starting to put together some interesting teams.

There are local farmers markets, art festivals, the State Fair and other local outdoor celebrations throughout the summer months. Each city has their own celebrations - so check the calendar as these are some of the most interesting things to see and do to really get a feel for the people and the area.

There are gyms, Rec centers all around the area.

If you have a chance, do a driving day-trip throughout the mountains and breathe in the gorgeous surroundings, for instance the Mirror Lake Scenic Byway SR 150. It is too difficult to describe the beauty of these areas in words, you just need to experience it. Spring and Autumn are especially gorgeous.

Plan ahead so that during your visit to this area, you are able to see all of the incredible things the area has to offer.

large gathering room with piano

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful! Marti was reachable, patient, and helpful. Two of our families stayed there, but she allowed us to use the large gathering room for dinner, a fireside, and a noisy talent show for our reunion. The piano made a huge difference for us. We appreciate the ping pong, too; so much more to the story. Thank you, Browns.

Awesome

  • 5 of 5

The basement apt was just perfect for our family . The apt was very clean and neat. We were really impressed as to how well the kitchen was stocked . We cooked meals all week . Access to an from the apt was very easy and we were able to accommodate 2 vehicles securely. The neighborhood was very quiet. We did have difficulty placing phone calls and receiving because we were in the basement but it helped us spend more time talking to eachother we were running ahead of schedule and the owners even accommodated us with an earlier checkin time . All in all we had a nice stay.

Just what we needed!!!

  • 5 of 5

Trying to get a large family together for a wedding in Utah with family coming from three states is NOT easy. We needed someplace to gather for the evenings to visit. This basement apartment was perfect for our needs. There was a big living area with two separate seating areas and a ping pong table in between. There was room for all of us to visit and play games. I was worried that being in someone's basement might be weird, but it wasn't at all. There is a separate entrance. Marti and her family made us feel completely welcome and even arranged for us to do some last minute laundry. There is a full sized kitchen and plenty of room to do prep work for the family dinner before my son's wedding. I will definitely stay here again! If you are looking for a lovely, comfortable, clean place to stay for a reasonable price. . . check out this property. You will be so glad you did! We sure are. Thank you Marti!

Highly recommend!

  • 5 of 5

We were in town for a wedding for 3 weeks and we needed a "home base". This was the absolutely perfect place! This spacious and comfortable apartment easily accommodated out of town family, friends, and even a group of bridesmaids getting ready for the big event.

Marti is the perfect hostess and has thought of everything to make guests comfortable. She oriented me to the area and gave suggestions and directions to places we needed to go. The home is located conveniently between Salt Lake and Utah Valley. It's very near the mountains and a gorgeous canyon. Costco and a super Wal-Mart and a great variety of shops and restaurants are clustered at the freeway entrance there so it was very easy to do errands.

I will definitely stay here again when I have a short or extended stay in Utah in the future.

Absolutely Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

We highly recommend staying here. We stayed for close to a week with our four kids, ages nine and under, and it was absolutely perfect. Marti was so easy to communicate with and gave us great information about the surrounding areas prior to arriving. She was also available by phone or text during our stay in case we needed anything. When we walked in the front door the kids were so excited and kept saying "We love it here! This is awesome!" The property was clean and fresh and we arrived. There is so much space, plenty for our family and even friends we had over for a visit. The empty storage space under the stairs fits a pack n play comfortably, so our youngest child slept very well there. The beds and couches are all very relaxing and comfortable. The TV was huge...almost as huge as the movie selection! There are also several video game systems available. We kids loved winding down for the night with a movie after a busy day of activities. The location is central to so many family-friendly activities including the aquarium, Thanksgiving Point and SLC. This property was so great for our family and made our vacation so much more enjoyable. We can't wait to stay here again!
