    "My friends and I were initially going to stay at the Embassy Suites in SLC for our guys ski vacation. My friends were set on the hotel, but I was looking for something more homey and out of the city. I found this property on VRBO website and recommended it to my friends. They agreed and could not have been happier. It took a bit longer to get to the ski sites than advertised, perhaps because of our careful driving in snow conditions. Everything else on the site was accurate. The rooms looked exactly as pictured and the place was very clean. The owner and property manager checked on us often to see if we needed anything, both were amazing. We all agreed that we would be back in the future, we all even mentioned that we would return for a family ski faction as well. Oh, and the hot tub was incredible after a long day of skiing….one clear night the stars were incredible."

  • Fantastic, spacious home in a great location!

    "We rented this house for a month and it exceeded all of our expectations. The owner was very helpful and accomodating. It took 20 minutes to get to Snowbird & Alta and 35 minutes to get to Brighton and Solitude. Whole Foods is a quick 10 minute drive and the kitchen was equipped with EVERYTHING, plenty of pots and pans and even a crockpot! But even if you don't cook there are lots of great restaurants and options. The house has three bedrooms on the main floor and the rest are in a fully finished and very nicely updated basement. We stayed here in July during some really hot days and we found the basement bedrooms kept a lot of a cooler temperature than the upstairs. Both my husband and I needed to stay connected to our offices, and the WIFI connection worked perfectly and was very reliable. There is a beautiful park (Falcon Park) with tennis courts and baseball fields only a quick 7 minute walking distance from the house. We truly enjoyed our time at this property and would definitely return!"

  • Great location, wonderful owners, great amenities

    "I have stayed at the Retreat several times. The location is fantastic for skiing as you are right at the mouth of Little Cottonwood Canyon. For those who like to run/walk or have children, there is a beautiful trail system and park/playground that is at the end of their street. The owners, Jennifer and Steve, are wonderful people and very accommodating. The retreat is more like an apartment but it has great amenities like a Jacuzzi tub, beautiful yard, outdoor hot tub, trampoline, and a fire pit. Highly recommend!"

  • Great home and Great Location

    "Check in was one of the easiest out of all the places I've stayed. I travel a lot for work. The two main things I look for are location and comfort. This place exceeded my expectations. The owner is very accommodating and will be on property within minutes if needed. I would recommend this place for anyone!"
