"When you return to a rental property for the second year in a row and are looking forward to making it a third, well, that just speaks for itself. Our group of six (4 adults, 2 kids) just finished what might be an annual event for as long as we're able to ski and might grow to more than once a year. Park City just has so much to offer and this property is ideal with it's perfect location, quality accommodation and reasonable price. Pat, the rental agent and the owners are quick to respond to any issue that may arise (we had a hot water tank go bad and it was replaced within hours), as well as great advice on local attractions. I aggressively shopped around online and we saved money on lift tickets and a rental car through Pat and her corporate discounts.
The Box Elder with a two car driveway, has four bedrooms, two with a master bath (one needs a bathroom door). The furniture, appliances and kitchen are up to date, comfortable and includes all the little stuff, like shampoo, conditioner, hand soap, lotion, dish & laundry soap, coffee, sugar, and all the spices you'll need for cooking.
You can walk to the Park City Resort to ski, up some stairs, drive and park (or ride the free shuttle to Canyons and Deer Valley as well). The view out of the front windows is directly onto the slopes at Park City. (In 2016, you'll be able to take a Gondola from Park City to Canyons) The idea of walking across the street to the largest ski resort in the USA has me wanting to book a stay for next year already.) We drove to Snow Bird. And after a day of carving up the slopes, there's nothing better than the courtyard with two hot tubs.
I'm a foodie and beer snob, so a trip must include a variety of experiences. We ate at the River Horse Saloon (recommend the Venison, Elk and Bison entree) last year and at Silver (recommend the Wagyu Beef Steak or Pasta Mushroom entrees.) this year. Both are superb high end eating experiences. Last year we also tried the Wasatch Brew Pub (Elk medallions) and this year the No Name Saloon (a preference for locals (Bison Burger)), as well as the Pizza Noodle (good pizza, watch the bill, they add 12% gratuity). We also ate at the Flying Sumo (Great sushi and service - my personal favorite dining experience). On the way in we were famished and ate at the Loco Lizard by the liquor store in the Smith's grocery shopping center. I do NOT recommend it. Nearby is Five Guy's Burgers, always good for kids and "Zupa" a better soup and salad choice."
