"We LOVED staying here. It's so different from Zermatt and The Homestead and other fancy places in Midway and Park City.
It brought tears to my eyes as I was reminded of my Midway cabin growing up. Lots of little nooks and crannies, including a hidden attic for tiny grandkids to play, a "school" classroom to play, a ping pong table room, and beds spread everywhere. We ate breakfast on the large patio. We built a fire out back and enjoyed s'mores and an incredible view of the stars. We played basketball, threw a football, turned on the 50's music on a record player in the little playhouse. We cooked meals there, and the kitchen is well stocked with dishes and pans. Fridge, stove, oven, shower, toilet all work well. It was so quiet that I could hardly fall asleep. We did not turn on a TV, video, or search for WiFi, or look at Facebook, NOT ONCE in 48 hours, which has got to be a record for my kids. Instead they learned how to play chess, played board games until midnight, enjoyed the fire, and read books. Wow!
If you're looking for a clean fancy condo with plush comfortable beds, WiFi, and a pool... this is not your place.
But if your family wants a nostalgic experience in an old cabin in the woods, this place is ideal. We plan to go back next year for sure.
Cons: old beds and bedding; indoor woodburning stoves say "don't use," so we built a fire out back; dead flies in the shower and windows; clean up is unclear--- there's a sign on the door (presumably for family, not paying guests) asking people to put the laundry in the washer and replace sheets on the beds. We wanted to hike or bike nearby, but struggled to find a trail, and drove down to the valley instead."
