Snowbird cabin description

Wow: Location, Location, Location!!!
Ideally situated in Wasatch National Forest this secluded and serene cabin has Little Cottonwood Creek in its backyard with granite cliffs, rocky crags, pristine forest and even valley views from the three decks, five skylights and many windows.
Approximately eight minutes from world class Snowbird and Alta ski resorts you never get stuck in hours of traffic at the mouth of the canyon because you are already in the canyon-yet grocery stores, nightlife and restaurants are only ten minutes down Little Cottonwood road. (On snowy days, take advantage of owners resident pass which grants you access in and out of closed canyon).
This one of a kind three story hundred year old pioneer cabin has more than doubled in size with a 1000 square foot addition. The original section has been beautifully restored and the rest of the home totally renovated throughout.
No detail has been overlooked and every amenity has been thoughtfully provided for your care-free stay.
Cabin still has original outside stone cooking stove but now features totally decked out gourmet twenty foot long indoor kitchen with fireplace and gathering area! The all granite counters, top of the line stainless steel appliances and a built-in eight foot granite eating island give real meaning to the joy of cooking!
After a great day on the slopes or playing outdoors relax in the two person jacuzzi or the soaking tub upstairs. Then enjoy dinner and a crackling fire. Finally, take in a movie before bed (over fifty new title dvd's to choose from) in the spacious living room (seriously, the couch is 17 feet long) with the 60 inch TV and surround sound theater system.
Wood floors and wood ceilings abound in this gorgeous cabin and the bedrooms are huge and meticulously decorated. One of the bedrooms upstairs even has a built in 'mini cabin' for the kids to play in while adults enjoy free time!
It is a unique and memorable experience to stay in a forest, breathe fresh mountain air, drink pure Rocky Mountain spring water, relax in complete luxury with all the comforts of home AND ski the greatest snow on earth all in one vacation! Hope to see you here!

                          Owner info

                          Year Purchased: 2011

                          About the owner: We are a husband/wife construction team and the parents of five beautiful children ages five to eighteen.. My husband (general contractor) and I (historic renovator and design specialist) have been building and restoring properties together for thirteen years. We have property on the National Historic Register and take a great deal of pride in our work. Please see VRBO #271573 for our last project. Our work together is top-notch as we are both perfectionists and artists at our craft. This is our life-love and we hope to share it with you!

                          Why the Owner Chose Snowbird:
                          We are entirely smitten by this canyon and its pristine and total beauty during all four seasons. We are avid skiers (all seven of us ski together weekly) and Snowbird and Alta Resorts provide the best skiing we have ever experienced. We will most certainly retire here when our children grow up. Thus, when this renovation project came up, we just couldn't say no!

                          The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
                          Best of both worlds! We love being in nature and yet being close to everything the city has to offer too! This is a great get away and a peaceful respite from the hectic bustle of everyday life. Our children laugh, play, swing, catch lizards and we go on walks and investigate nature up here. We cook great meals and spend quality family time together playing games, watching movies and just hanging out. What more could you ask for!?!
