  • Pefect Location to skiing and Main St.!

    "First time staying on this side of Park City. This was the most convenient location for the price I've ever had a chance to experience. Just 20 yrds down the street and up some stairs to catch the slope to the Town Lift. To return you can either use the same stairs or if the snow pack allows (and your skills) you can slide slip between the condo's across the street to directly in front of this condo. Worked perfect. There is also a staircase going down to Main St. right next to this condo and is SUPER convenient. The furnishings are what they appear in the photos. Not luxury but certainly not beat up or bottom end. If you are looking for someplace VERY convenient to both slopes and town...this is it with a very reasonable price."

  • Perfect for A Family Reunion!

    "We searched a lot for a place for our family reunion, and no other rental came close to accommodating our family like Deer's Acre. The name is perfect as deer came through the property every day. The house worked so well for us with bedrooms that had attached bathrooms, large gathering room, large dining room and modern kitchen. We enjoyed the decks and the kids had many adventures in the large yard. There was plenty of space to set up two Corn Hole games for a tournament, and lots of parking. There are many activities available in the area as well as national parks. The property owner was a delight to work with. It was a wonderful get-a-way for us and we hope to go back again!"

  • Great family stay

    "My husband and I and three teenagers stayed for three nights. It had everything we needed including a bed for everyone and full sized washer and dryer. It was 45 minutes from Zion, 1.5 hours from the North Rim of the Grand Canyon and 45 minutes from Bryce. We were able to stay in one location and visit the parks and come back and go in the hot tub."
