Private Homes house description

Become a part of Park City’s mountain culture- past and present!- at Casa Blu.

After a bit of digging at the Park City Historical Society, we've determined that Casa Blu served as the home of either or General or a founding miner- or, on the more scandalous end, as a home base for 'ladies of the night'- during the silver boom that changed Park City forever.

In 1898, Casa Blu stayed standing even as many of its neighbors went up in flames in a deadly fire.

Now, Casa Blu has been given a third life as an utterly unique vacation cottage that puts you just minutes from every activity on your Park City vacation agenda.

PCMR's Town Ski Lift and lockers are three blocks away. Historic Main attractions (shops, restaurants and galleries) begin just feet from your front door. And Park City's shuttle means the rest of the area's attractions are minutes away, too.

Inside, we've hung old photographs of the cottage and Park City in their past lives, and incorporated antique details like the mirror in the bathroom, which is made from a recycled, 100-year-old tin ceiling.

Of course, we've also outfitted Casa Blu to suit the needs of a modern vacationer. A fully equipped kitchen provides a user-friendly space to cook a meal. A washer and dryer in the cottage are perfect for soggy ski clothes. And entertainment options like high-speed Internet and flat-screen TVs mean you can cozy up with a good movie in the land of good movies (Sundance, of course). There's even an electronic fireplace to take the cozy factor up another notch!

In a house this compact, every detail counts. The quirky and modern design scheme is carried throughout, and the open floorplan and big windows flood the space with natural light.

Believe it or not, this adorable cottage has room for two bedrooms, and sleeps 5 guests (or 4 adults, if no children).

One bedroom provides a queen-sized bed wrapped in bright linens and luxury sheets. The other is great for kids, thanks to its bunk bed system with a twin on top and full bed on the bottom.

Its cozy front porch faces a park area that's great for dogs (Casa Blu welcomes dogs!) and kids.

Altogether, you won't find another home in Park City like this one. Come and see our Park City gem for yourself! We look forward to sharing this charming piece of history with you.

                  Owner info

                  About the owner: Just like you, I prefer booking a vacation rental over a hotel. I love the detail owners put into their homes and learning why their home and city charms them. I try hard to nod at PC's past, while providing modern amenities and personal favorites that will add to your trip to provide you the best vacation rental. I am originally from Minnesota but am now a Park City resident and absolutely love it here! I spend my free time being outside and enjoying everything that draws tourists; amazing trails, slopes, food, music, art, people and climate. I'm a lover of great food, friends, my two rambunctious kids and knowing I gave my guests a vacation to remember forever.

                  Why the Owner Chose Private Homes:
                  I was immediately drawn to, okay obsessed with, Casa Blu because it's so cute! It's at the top of Main (just around the road bend at Grappa so it feels private), surrounded by the other homes that were founded with Park City. Casa Blu was actually built in 1860, one of the first in town (the first mine was claimed in 1868 for reference). It's a piece of history and the Mayor once lived across the street! The size is great for couples, small families/groups that are looking for a home (not one excessive in size or budget) over a condo or hotel. The location is perfect- you will be minutes from world-class skiing/snowboarding. Including, Deer Valley, Park City Mountain Resort, The Canyons, Snowbird, Alta and Brighton. During the summer, this property is also central to all PC activities (music, biking, restaurants, Farmers Markets, etc). On a personal note: I love history, art and the charming warmth special places exude. I got the warm fuzzy feeling every Sunday, for 3 months, when my kids and I walked by this little blue delight on our weekend Main Street stroll. This Minor's Cottage is certainly charming but is also a piece of the dynamic history Park City offers. Our renovations (being completed Oct-Nov, 2013) will be truthful to this property's rustic heritage but will also add a touch of elegance and art. We hope you enjoy it!

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  Being a resident, I often give recommendations on where to eat, what to do, daycare and any other details you might want/need a local's insight on. I try to include a lot of this on Casa Blu's website to help even those not staying with us :)
