Ogden house description

Browning House is a classic Arts and Crafts-period mansion immaculately restored to its 1911 elegance, located within the Eccles National Historic District. With rich hardwoods, stained glass and painted murals, this glorious house was originally built by the family of famed firearms inventor John Browning, and superb craftsmanship inspired by the Arts and Crafts Movement is brimming throughout. Browning House features almost 6,000 square feet of space, another 2,500 square feet of outdoor patio and decks, six spacious bedrooms and 3.5 baths, a chef’s kitchen with all modern appliances, formal dining, a separate breakfast nook, and a workout room with commercial-grade treadmill, cycle and weights. For ultimate relaxation, enjoy our steam room and private hot-tub, relax on our covered outdoor smoking deck with fire pit and Bose sound system, enjoy a game of billiards or watch the big game on the 64-inch flat-screen TV. Browning House is ideal for ski vacations and family reunions.


Browning House is situated on almost one-half acre with lush flowers, trees and gardens. There is plenty of room for outdoor yard games, or a patio party for up to 50. There is an enclosed kennel area where furry family members are welcome. There is off-street parking for up to seven vehicles.

Browning House is more than a house. It is an unforgettable experience in luxury, elegance and comfort, all wrapped in a blanket of historic authenticity. $250/night including taxes.
