About Marissa De Simone

I am Australian. I have lived in the states for the last 10 years - New York City, Tahoe, Los Angeles, and for the last 3 years i've lived here in Park City, UT.

I love the mountains and the active outdoor life of Park City. The restaurants and bars of Main St don't hurt either!

Marissa De Simone purchased this cottage in 2014

Why Marissa De Simone chose Old Town

Marissa and i care deeply about preserving the historical heritage of Park City. We bought this historic miners cottage and renovated it back to its original charm.

It is such a unique property as it offers a very private secluded feel, nestled in the trees, and yet it is only a few minutes walk to the fun of Main st.

We have added all the comforts of home if you want them (wifi, cable, etc), but you can just as easily switch off and imagine a simpler life here in our little Western town.

The cottage is accessed via Shorty's Stairs. The lot is steep, so not accessible directly from Ontario. Its location delivers amazing views and privacy in the heart of Old Town. But you will need to be OK with a few flights of stairs. The views make it worth it!

Incredible Location and View

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed here while in Park City for a wedding. It was the perfect location, just a short walk from downtown and a 2 minute drive up to Deer Valley. We will definitely stay here again if and when we return to Park City.

Awesome little house in a great location!

  • 5 of 5

The house feels like a little cottage out in the woods, but the location is great for experiencing old town Park City. The stairs reaching the house from the street aren't too bad at all, and it was great to be able to walk over to main street to shop and eat. While the house is an older historic home, it has been completely renovated and is very very clean inside. The bathroom was stocked with toiletries which was nice as we forgot to pack some. We woke up to light snow, but the heat in the home works great and it was very warm. Owners were great with communication!

Absolutely fantastic cottage with a beautiful view

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I booked Marissa's cottage so we had a place to stay after a dinner event in Park City. The cottage is situated on a private hillside and is only a few minutes walk to Main St. The view is spectacular, with the cottage's front porch looking out over the ski mountain and the Old Town of Park City.

The interior has been done up very nicely and they have all the kitchen amenities you could want. The heat goes on quickly (which we were grateful for as it was snowing outside), and the cottage is perfectly cozy on a winter's night. The bed was extra comfortable, and we slept great.

Marissa has the bathroom stocked with shampoo, conditioner and even little toothpastes - we thought this was a very nice touch.

We were able to get in touch with Marissa easily and she responded via text immediately to our questions. She was a very gracious host.

The cottage is accessed by a few flights of stairs and a little lane. The location is enchanting, but you need be able to get up and down the stairs. I'd recommend this cottage to anyone looking for a romantic getaway at a unique property that in minutes from restaurants and art galleries - but if you are elderly or unfit, the stairs may be a chllenge.

Very Cute Cottage in the Mountains

  • 5 of 5

The property was very cute. Be prepared to park and walk to get to the property. Could have been a little cleaner / less buggy.

Not good...pass on this place

  • 2 of 5

I was so disappointed with this property. The bottom line was that this place was not clean. There was a spot on the sheets--looked like grease--and the living room ottoman was dirty with many spots. Not cool.

I sent the owners pictures and got no response.

There were no reading lights in the living room so hanging out and reading was not possible.

I would not recommend to a friend nor would we stay again.

Pass on this place.

Owner's Response: There are so many things I'd like to say about this guest and her attempt to get a free stay, but life is too short to invite negativity and Park City is too beautiful to waste time not enjoying it! What I will say is that the one comment about the lights is fair. We had actually had a previous guest say the lights were too bright, so we replaced them with lower wattage. Now unfortunately it seems they were too dim for this guest :-/ So we have now replaced the light bulbs in the ceiling with higher wattage bulbs so fingers crossed that they are now just right! We have now also added a new vintage reading lamp in the living room that we hope will make reading on the couch more enjoyable - we added a picture of the new lamp to the pictures. Constructive feedback is always welcome and hopefully the lights will make the stay for guests even better.
