About Liz and Earl Ashurst

I am an lllinois girl who came to love the mountains after meeting my love at BYU (a Utah boy) lo many years ago. It has been his dream to own a piece of a mountain all our married life. We have moved around quite a bit and now reside in Texas. Our 6 children (and 19 grandchildren) are scattered around the country. We have had to rent a facility to all be together. We have worked hard to make this home a place where we can all be together. With the ''bunk house' finished above the garage, we finally have that.

Liz and Earl Ashurst purchased this house in 2015

Why Liz and Earl Ashurst chose Utah

Driving up Provo Canyon one day with my son who lives in Midway, I asked him to turn off at the sign that said Wallsburg. We had driven past it many times and wondered what was there. We were amazed at this wonderful valley so close to so much and yet so off the beaten path. We zeroed in on an amazing A-frame nestled up on the bench. My husband and I decided it would be the perfect gathering spot our family and are anxious to share it with others. With main house that sleeps 17 and the bunkhouse that sleeps 15 as an add on, a group of 32 can be easily accommodated.

What makes this house unique

The location is what hooked us on it. Close to Provo and Orem in one direction, almost across the road from Deer Creek Reservoir and the Provo River; minutes from ski resorts and the Midway/Heber attractions.

We love the views from the 2 story 'A' window, the log staircase in the great room and the huge deck.

Most of all we love hearing our granchildren giggling under the quilts in the bunk beds after a family meal at the amazing tables my husband made!

The cabin and property worked well for our trip, the only negative--misunderstandings on the cost!

  • 4 of 5

We had a youth activity slash family reunion at the Ashurst cabin and the property worked almost perfectly for our needs. There was a $450 mis-understanding on the cost of the bunkhouse, which came as pretty big surprise. The bunkhouse was still under construction when the inital conversations were had, and we thought there was a mutual understanding about the use of the bunkhouse. We were disappointed to find out, when it was too late, that there was going to be a big increase in price. The owners acquiesced by $150 from what they initially demanded--which we appreciated. But were pretty hard-lined about the matter--in my opinion. That was the only notable negative about our experiance. I am sure that now the bunkhouse is finished and part of property, that those mis-understandings won't happen again.

The cabin was clean, well-stocked, and comfortable. Beautiful surroundings and a good location for our plans. I would reccomend some blinds downstairs. The sun comes glaring through those windows in the morning, and it would be nice to blind them.

Lovely, comfortable home away from the city

  • 5 of 5

I rented this house with 3 other families for a reunion. It was the perfect escape to relax and just enjoy the quietness of the country. The house was very well laid out and fit all of our families (7 adults and 9 children) comfortably. The kids loved the trampoline and outdoor playset and were able to spend most of the day outside. There were also plenty of toys to play with indoors. There were large areas in the dining room, living room and den for the adults to hang out and plenty of deck chairs to sit outside.

Overall, we had a wonderful stay, and I would highly recommend renting this house if you're looking to have a relaxing, peaceful time with friends or family.

Great property for our family reunion

  • 4 of 5

The house and location worked great for us! There was plenty of space for all of us, the house was clean and the kitchen had everything we needed. The kids really enjoyed the kid sized table in the kitchen, the toys, the trampoline and the swings. The only thing that could have made it better would have been air conditioning. The downstairs stayed very cool even in the middle of the day, but the kitchen and upstairs got warm in the afternoons. Even with that, I would rent it again.

Fantastic base for retreat

  • 5 of 5

I just completed a 3 day stay at Clear Sky with 12 others. The house was amazing and met our needs in every way. There were plenty of beds with nice pillows, tons of clean towels, and a well stocked kitchen. We played quite a bit with the basketball hoop and the trampoline and enjoyed getting friendly visits from neighboring cats and dogs. The stars from the front deck were out of this world! I'd absolutely stay here again.

We had a wonderful time in Wallsburg. The Ashurst's cabin was perfect for our family. The owners were wonderful to work with, we appreciated all the communication in preparation for our visit and while we were there. The cabin was exactly how it was described in the listing and very clean. We loved the addition of the swingset in the yard, hikes, walks and playing games. I personally was pleased that there was limited WIFI, this took away distractions and gave us time to spend time together as a family. Thanks so much for sharing your home with us.

Family Friendly!

  • 5 of 5

This location was wonderful for our large family. We needed a place close to Provo and this quiet mountain setting was so relaxing. The property was clean and ready for us when we arrived. We were so pleased with the amenities. There were plenty of towels, bedding and kitchen supplies. The washer/dryer and second refrigerator was well used with our group. We have 11 grandchildren, 7 years old and younger and they had a great time playing outside on the cabin grounds. We were so pleased with how this cabin accommodated us. All the bedrooms and bathrooms handled our large group.The kitchen was a delight to work in. It was wonderful to be able to sit and eat all together. The view is absolutely breathtaking! This is the first vacation home that we have rented and the owners were great to work with. I have already recommended this location to some of my friends.

This is a very comfortable house to enjoy year round. Go to the reservoir in the summer, enjoy snow sports in the winter or just stay 'home' and relax. The house is NOT air conditioned but if you open up the windows when the sun goes down, it will cool off quickly on a hot day and you will find yourself closing the windows before long.
