This beautiful 3000 Square Foot town home is perfectly situated at the base of the Wasatch Mountains in a small comfortable community. You cannot get any closer to the resorts of Snowbird or Alta without staying at one of the hotels at the mountain. As outdoor enthusiast ourselves we purchased this home because of its proximity to all the outdoor treasures the area has to offer for all of the seasons.

Just minutes from the best skiing in Utah, this home sits in the foothills of the Wasatch Mountain range at the mouth of Little Cottonwood Canyon which holds 2 of the best ski resorts in N. America. Snowbird and Alta resorts are just 8 miles from the house and are nominated on a regular basis as best resorts by many of the major ski publications. With an average of 600 inches of snow per year there is always plenty of great skiing no matter if you like to ski groomers or powder. Solitude and Brighton are also only 15 miles away and offer a great variety of terrain.

The house boasts 2 family rooms, 2 kitchens 2 wood burning fireplaces and 5 bedrooms and is spread out on 2 floors so everyone has plenty of room to roam no matter if you are with a large group of friends or multiple families traveling together. With bedding arraignments situated to accommodate up to 12 people you are sure to find this house perfect for your group.

The first floor of the home has the kitchen, dining room, 1st family room, outside deck and fireplace. The master bedroom is located on this floor and has a king bed and full private bath. There is also a bunk room on the first floor with a twin over full bunk bed and a second full bathroom. The downstairs has 3 bedrooms and 1 bathroom. First bedroom has a king bed, second bedroom has another twin over full bunk bed and the 3rd bedroom has 2 full size beds in it. The second kitchen and family room are also located on this floor and the family room has a wood burning fireplace. A door off of the family room leads to the backyard where there is a 6 person hot tub perfect for those after ski breaks to sooth those muscles or a great place to sit and watch the snow fall in the evening. The house has a 2 car garage and there is parking in the driveway for 2 additional cars. Both kitchens are fully equipped to handle all of your cooking needs from that important morning breakfast before heading to the slopes to a gourmet dinner for the entire gang. Kids want something different for dinner the second kitchen is perfect for that! Propane BBQ is on the back deck for all of your outdoor grilling needs.

The house has 2 50” HD TV’s in both family rooms and another 40” in the master bedroom with cable TV with 150 channels and 2 DVD players. The house has high speed WiFi available throughout the house perfect for streaming movies on any of your devices.

There are 2 grocery stores 2 miles from the house plus a Whole Foods Market about 6 miles away. Plenty of great restaurants just a few miles away, movie theater, Starbucks, hospital, and Downtown Salt Lake city is about 20 miles if you want to go and explore the area.

Why Forest Williams chose Utah

We love Utah so much and this is the 2nd property we have bought in this community. It is the closest you can get to the best skiing in the country without staying on the mountain. This house was perfect for us as we like to entertain friends and family while we are in Utah on vacation

Perfect Adventure Base

  • 5 of 5

This house is everything we were looking for for our Utah trip. The location could not be better - right at the mouth of Little Cottonwood (heaven!), ease of access to freeway, and simple commute to the airport. The home is nice and updated, spacious with completely separate living and cooking areas on each floor, perfect for a multi family vacation. Plenty of beds and rooms for everyone to have their own space, and nice living areas to hang out together. We were delighted with our stay and will be back next time!

Great house great location!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for presidents weekend ski trip. The house is in such a great location for skiing in Utah. Snowbird and Alta were only about 20 minutes away and it made for an easy trip to the mountain.

The house was really a great place to stay. It was warm and comfortable and accommodated our large group very well. We loved having the 2 kitchens and having 2 fireplaces was a nice treat. The house is clean and well stocked with everything we needed for our stay. We would highly recommend this home for a ski trip to Utah

A little run down and poorly stocked.

  • 2 of 5

This property has not been properly cared for. The backyard fence was collapsed and instead of landscaping there was dirt with trash strewn about. The house was clean but had a strong odor of bleach. No extra toilet paper- had to run to the store after one day. On a busy street with lots of traffic noise. Otherwise the house worked out o.k. Reasonably close to ski resorts. Spend your time up the canyon and only come down to sleep.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your feedback. The fence in the backyard was damaged during one of the storms and we could not get someone to fix it until the spring. It has since been repaired. As far as landscaping your stay was during the winter and the plants die under the snow so not much I can do there. I have addressed the issue about any garbage in the backyard with the property manager and they will police the area. As far as toilet paper in the house if you had called me I would have had the property manager bring you more. We stock each stay with 12 rolls (4 per bathroom) but are happy to bring more if needed

The property was in a good location and has a good layout. The bedrooms and bathrooms were adequate. The issue I had with the property was the lack of maintenance. Examples: Several of the doors were so tight in the frames that they would not close. Had to go to the store to buy. The bathroom door barely opened as it hit the floor. Missing fixtures-towel bar and toilet paper holder in the lower bathroom, stopper for the sink. Hole in bedroom to add plumbing clean out was never finished. Just an observation, it would make more sense to have an additional bathroom downstairs rather than a second kitchen. in the future, have the cleaning service provide enough toilet paper. Had to go to the store to buy. I would not rent this property again.

Great location with large living spaces, two wood-burning fireplaces, plenty of room, and convenient location. Owner was able to quickly address concerns and minor issues. Would recommend.

Great location for skiing!!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here with a group of 13 adults for 3 nights for a ski trip. Everyone had a bed to sleep on and we even had enough to hot water for all of us to shower after a long day of skiing! We had plenty of room. The kitchenette downstairs really helped, especially in the morning when everyone wanted breakfast and coffee. The garage was stocked with plenty of firewood, which we used a couple of nights. The hot tub is very small. We only had 4 people in it and the water started spilling over the sides, but it was clean and working properly. The kitchen was stocked with plenty of cups, bowls, plates, etc. It definitely is a great location if you're planning to ski in the Salt Lake area. It was only about 20 minutes to Snowbird/Alta. And only about 30 minutes to dinner in downtown Salt Lake, although there are plenty of decent restaurants close by. The owner was very nice and responded quickly to any emails. The property manager was also very helpful. I would definitely stay here again!!
