Recent Brighton reviews

  • Great family ski/board getaway

    "With a few other families we shared this cabin for a wonderful ski and snow board getaway. The cabin is fantastic for families with kids. They enjoyed the hot tub, the toy loft, steam shower and huge TV. The parents enjoyed the close location to the slopes as a number of us had small children learning to ski or board for the first time. It was very convenient to ski with them and then take them back to the cabin when they got tired. The location is so close that you don't lose much time in the process. Great kitchen, comfortable lounge areas and fantastic views of the Brighton Resort. We have also come in the summer time (July or 2013) and it is beautiful in the summer time. You can walk to Silver Lake and we saw a number of deer and moose which the kids thought was great. Just an overall wonderful place to stay."

  • Great vacation

    "Our family had a wonderful time. It had been years since we had all been together. I had forgotten how much I missed them all. The view was wonderful. There were many opportunities for adventure, like sliding down the old coal chute. The cabin (that seems like a bizarre thing to call this spacious home). Opportunities for walking were nmerous. We'd all take off at the drop of the hat to go on yet another adventure. I'm 72. I'm just stating that to let you know that the site, which is up a mountain did not limit me at all. Well, my husband (aged 83) had to pull me up, after a visit to the fishing site on the lake. It was on the final day of our visit. The cabin had all the amenities of home. And maybe a few more. When I walked in, it took my breath away. I'm certain any family would enjoy it. We had family members from five to 83. As you can tell, I highly recommend it."

  • Great Getaway Location

    "We rented the Mangy Moose for a high school friends' ski trip. The cabin has great character and fits perfectly with its mountain surroundings. Lots of room, fully furnished, and everything worked! Honi and Dave, the owners, were great communicators and were very interested in ensuring our group had a great time. We had a great time and I hope the Mangy Moose will be available the next time I have a group of visitors in town. Thanks for great vacation accommodations Honi and Dave!"

Brighton is located at the top of Big Cottonwood Canyon in Utah. It has a base elevation of 8,755 feet and a vertical rise of 1,745 feet. The area is known for its exceptional quality of dry powder snow with around 500 inches per year. Easy to reach and offering a family-friendly atmosphere, it is a popular place for those looking to enjoy all types of snow sports, from beginner to pro with unparalleled back country access. Brighton is consistently ranked at the top of the list for family affordability and terrain as children under 10 can ride and ski free.

Utah Vacation Rentals Offer Many Outdoor Activities

The miles of groomed trails and pristine snow in Brighton, UT make it ideal for downhill and cross country skiing. For those looking for even more adrenalin-pumping activity, Brighton offers tree skiing, chutes and cliffs for a scary white-knuckle experience. With three excellent terrain parks, visitors can also enjoy tobogganing, night skiing, snowboarding and plenty of après ski fun too. There is a beginner park with smaller rails and jumps. For the more experienced, there is a top-to-bottom terrain park and super pipe with a total of 36 rails and boxes, and a 350-foot-long, 15-foot-deep pipe. Dining out is available for all tastes and budgets, with choices from the Alpine Rose and Millicent Chalet cafeterias to Molly Green's Private Members' Club.

The Best Time to Visit Brighton Vacation Rentals

Brighton is well known for its winter sports and has 41 feet (that's 500 inches!) of snowfall every winter. It experiences dry, light snow as the storm clouds pass over the huge lake west of Salt Lake City which makes it perfect for winter sports. The climate is ideal for snow sports from November through March. During the summer, the area reaches 28 C (82 F), making it ideal for hiking and other outdoor pursuits.

Great Places to Visit Around Brighton, Utah

The main ski resort of Solitude is just two minutes from Brighton and visitors can ski both mountains in the same day with a combined pass.

It is worth spending time in Salt Lake City, which is just 45 minutes away, upon arrival or before departing. Sights include the massive Mormon temple and tabernacle set in landscaped gardens. Tours of the buildings are available. Alternatively, enjoy seeing the huge salt lake which is visible from space or enjoy some of the excellent shops in this modern city.

Traveling to Brighton Cabins

Utah vacation rentals are just 24 miles from Salt Lake City which has daily flights into Salt Lake City (SLC) International Airport from all our the world. It is an easy drive from there along the I-15 and I-215 to Brighton, making it perfect even for a short weekend of skiing as you can hit the slopes within a couple of hours of landing in Utah. For those driving to the area, Salt Lake City is conveniently located where the east-west I-80 crosses the north-south I-15, making it easy to drive to from most parts of the central and western U.S.

Brighton Vacation Houses Offer Many Advantages

For families and groups of friends, staying in a Brighton vacation rental is ideal as it offers far more flexibility and much more space than a limited hotel room. Returning to your own home-away-from-home each evening allows you to relax in front of the fire, cook a meal, dry out clothing in the laundry and soak off the day's aches in a hot bathtub. Choosing a vacation home is also very affordable for families. Consider sharing a larger cabin with family and friends and splitting the cost. Well located close to ski lifts and with great views of the area, Brighton cabins are hard to beat.
