Recent Sandy reviews

  • 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 Place! Great Views! Can't wait to go back next year!

    "We love this House and especially the location, our group of "young" retirees have been here 5 years in a row! This time we came earlier than usual in the season but had the great Utah snow anyway. The Bluff Home, as the name describes is located on a private bluff with 360 views. The open kitchen is well supplied with anything we needed for cooking a basic to gourmet meal, and the dining room table is large enough for everyone eating together all at once. The 2 upstairs family rooms are great for hanging out together, one with a big screen HDTV, both with fireplaces, and the family room downstairs works well for our annual ping pong tournament. Maybe the biggest plus is the best hot tub I've been in, with a foot massager (great after wearing ski boots all day) plus incredible panoramic valley views sitting on the top of the hill- especially fabulous with a Corona, at night watching the lights of the entire Salt Lake valley. The manager Kevin is very responsive, through him we usually purchase the package that also includes our lift tickets. He even arranges discounts on our rental equipment and rental SUVs saving us our time and money. We will be back next year!"

  • 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!"

  • Quiet and comfortable stay

    "We were in town for an event at the equestrian center. The loft was absolutely perfect for our stay! It was close to our event, very close to shops (groceries, restaurants, coffee, Target, gas station) so very convenient. The neighborhood is very peaceful and has numerous paths to walk and enjoy the mountain views and sunrise. The loft is private, a separate unit from the house and we appreciated having our privacy and not feeling as though we were bothering anyone else. The loft has everything you might want, more than I expected. While the kitchen area does not have a stove, there is a microwave, hotplate and fridge. All the dishes and utensils you might need. I felt that this was a great value and a memorable stay."
