Sundance chateau / country house description

This cabin is a beautifully furnished 3-bedroom home built on a one-quarter acre park-like lot on the South Fork of the Provo River, only minutes from the ski slopes of Sundance, with it's renowned restaurants and country store. The cabin has been completely reconstructed and refurnished within the last several years. The cabin is equipped with two flat panel HDTVs: a 46' Sony Bravia and a 32' Toshiba, both 1080p's. A powerful Windows 7 desktop computer with a Samsung multi-function printer, copier, scanner and fax is provided. Broadband Internet service is available for $20 per gigabyte (about 48 hrs of browsing time). The cabin is also equipped with a wireless router that provides broadband coverage for laptops and portable devices throughout the house and on the decks. A charming electric Duraflame fireplace adds to the coziness and comfort in the living-room.

For the outdoor enthusiast, Vivian Park offers the ultimate in hiking, downhill and cross-country skiing, snow boarding, mountain biking, road biking, camping, hunting, fishing, rock climbing, back packing, horseback riding, tubing and rafting.

Summer activities are almost endless. The South Fork connects several hundred yards downstream with the Provo River, a world-famous venue for fly fishermen. A public park located adjacent the Provo River near the entrance to Vivian Park has two playgrounds, multiple picnic areas, volleyball courts, a large fishing pond for children, and restrooms. The Provo Canyon bike path begins here, winds through scenic parks and passes world-famous Bridal Veil Falls en route to Utah Lake some twenty miles away. The Heber Valley Railroad, the only operator of vintage steam locomotives in Utah, stops at Vivian Park, only a block away. At certain times of the year, the train is disguised as Thomas the Tank, and the railroad's schedule can be viewed online at the website of Heber Valley Railroad. High-quality road bikes and mountain bikes may be rented from the owners for $15/day or $95/week. Horseback riding is available further up the canyon, and summer ski lift rides at both Sundance and Park City are popular attractions. Both places also have 'live' outdoor summer theatre. Park City has summer concerts (classical & pop) and an Art Festival.

During the winter, some of the best downhill and cross-country skiing in the world are only 5 minutes away at the Sundance Resort or 45 minutes away at the Park City resort. The Heber Valley Railroad provides train rides to Soldiers' Hollow for downhill tubing (or you can go by car), and at Christmas time, the train provides Polar Express trips. The Snowbird, Brighton, and Alta Ski Resorts are about an hour away by car.

During the fall, the hour trip around the nearby Alpine Loop or a short trip up the nearby road to the Squaw Peak valley overlook afford views of some of the most spectacular scenery in this country, all clothed in fall colors. The trailhead for the Provo River Parkway is only two blocks away from the cabin, making the area quickly accessible to both resorts and cities.

The unique thing about this property is location. Vivian Park was established in the late 1800's and currently has about 30 residences. The view of the river out back is remarkable, as is the view of the gorgeous yard from the front. Mt. Timpanogos, pine trees, and flowers are a part of the scenery. There is a lot of wildlife in the yard including wild turkeys on Thanksgiving Day. It's nestled in the mountains, yet only a few minutes from Sundance, BYU, or downtown Provo, and less than an hour from three other Utah ski resorts. Also, the Salt Lake City airport is only 51 miles away.

We supply paper towels, toilet paper, tissue, bath soap, shampoo & conditioner samples, dishwasher detergent & clothes laundry products.

DVD's & board games are available on request, and game systems and games which can be attached to the TV (Play Station 2, WII, XBOX)are available for rent. There is a full-size basketball court in the yard.

At least one week advance notice is required in order to reserve the cabin.
