Recent Solitude reviews

  • Loved it! Will be tough to beat for our next UT trip.

    "A sure hit for your friends and family! Nine of us in 2 families stayed very comfortably for 8 nights in this beautiful, big house that is nestled off Big Cottonwood Canyon Road. You need a 4X4 in the winter! The house had everything you could want, and the Dismans and Emily were very helpful and welcoming. This house gives you such easy access to Solitude (~1 mile) and Brighton (~3 miles) and other great UT mountains (approx. 45-70 mins away) that we skied 7 days at 5 different mountains (Solitude (2x), Brighton (2x), Snowbird, Deer Valley, and Canyons). All of us loved the serenity, decor, layout, outdoor hot tub, deck, wifi, etc…even the teenagers! You can't beat the snow and lack of crowds in the Cottonwood Canyons! Note: Grocery stores and most restaurants (other than at Solitude Resort and Silver Fork Lodge) are 20-30 minutes away so buy groceries, wine, etc. before driving up the canyon. Solitude Village, however, has restaurants, a spa, ice rink, pizza parlor, and a small convenience store. The only minor annoyances were: (i) melting snow off the nice deck dripping into the hot tub below, brrrrr -- not sure of a fix for that; (ii) a newer but somewhat slow drying clothes dryer, and (iii) the MBR is directly below one of the upstairs bedrooms which can make the MBR a bit noisy given that the floor/ceiling planks are exposed in a log cabin -- nothing you can do about that! You'll still love the house/location."

  • Fantastic property!

    "My family of 5 just returned from vacationing and staying in 306. It was just like the pictures. No disapointments! It was immaculately clean. The kitchen is very well equipped with lots of cooking pans and serving dishes if you wanted to cook big dinners, it even has a nice new looking crock pot! The only appliance it didn't have was a coffee pot but we used tea-bag instant coffee and we were fine. There were lots of towels and the condo had enough cleaning supplies to get us thru the week so we didn't have to buy dish soap, garbage bags, dishwasher pods. This is not a big expense just a bother when you don't have them. There were also lots of extra pillows and blankets. The only point I want to mention is the bunk beds. We had planned on having our 12 year son sleep in one of the bunk beds but it was really noisy(squeaky). It was so loud we could hear across the condo to our bedroom! But it was an easy fix. There is a pullout sofa in the living room he used instead. But if you were planning on using those beds for sleeping you may come up short bedwise. The condo is great. Wonderful for a family trip. Enjoy."

  • Spring break

    "Great location, easy access from Salt Lake City, tons of snow. Everything we needed was there. Nathan gave us all info we needed for trip. Would recommend skiing additional resorts close by if staying more than 2 days as Solitude somewhat small. No crowds at all."

  • Great find!

    "Condo is exactly as represented. Very nicely maintained, well stocked and such a convenient location so close to the slopes, ski school and restaurants. Very quiet top floor unit. You do not get the usual noise that is common in condo complexes. Oversized, second bedroom was perfect for the kids. They thought it was cool to have their own space and flatscreen TV all to themselves. Great place. You won't be disappointed. We plan to return next year. Solitude is perfect for families - uncrowded and nice terrain. Ski school was great too and small groups!"

Solitude Travel Tips

The Peace and Quiet of Solitude Vacation Rentals

The European-style traffic–free village of Solitude has charming alpine architecture, spectacular mountain scenery and superb skiing. It is like a Bavarian alpine village in miniature, with its low-rise condos and stores. It is also one of the best-kept secrets in the world of winter snow sports, along with neighboring Brighton. Calm, peaceful and crowd-free, it is the perfect place to enjoy precious time relaxing with family and friends in quiet solitude. The 1,200 acres of wide open bowls, steep chutes and cruising slopes remain uncrowded and there is something to appeal to every age and skill level.

The Weather at Utah Vacation Rentals

Solitude has its own unique weather pattern due to its elevation and location. Average winter temperatures are below freezing and maintain the excellent dry snow conditions. In the summer months, temperatures range from 60 to 72 Fahrenheit (15 to 22 Celcius) and the area has very little rainfall, making this the ideal place for outdoor pursuits away from the desert summer heat.

Reasons to Consider Solitude Vacation Houses

Those who enjoy the comforts of home, plenty of space, a comfortable living area around the fireplace, and plenty of bedrooms for all the family should consider a vacation home in Solitude rather than a hotel room. The amenities in a house often include a washer and dryer which is a must for those with children. The fully equipped kitchens make it easy to cater to different diets and mealtimes. Those with young children can relax in the separate living area and watch TV after the kids' bedtime which is impossible in a shared hotel room. Larger families and groups of friends will find the cost of Solitude vacation houses work out to be very affordable per head.

Things to Do from Your Utah Vacation Rentals

Dining out is a pleasure around your Solitude vacation home. Head for the laid-back Creekside Restaurant or the award-winning French cuisine at Bernards. The Bavarian-style hotel in the village center offers fine dining in a great family-friendly atmosphere. Even more fun can be had by skiing nearly a mile to Yurt where the chef prepares a gourmet meal as you sit and watch. More casual dining is also on offer around the village, within easy walking distance of your Solitude vacation home.

In the winter, put on your skis or snowshoes and head out to the uncrowded slopes and your choice of 64 runs. Ice skating, Nordic skiing and family entertainment, such as Puppet Theater, are all available to enjoy. Solitude has some of the best snowboarding with long groomed runs and backcountry chutes, making it a snowboarding mecca.

When the snow melts, the action continues with hiking, mountain biking, horse riding, golf, fishing, hunting, whitewater rafting, rock hounding and extreme sports. Skydiving, hang gliding, mountaineering, BMX racing, canyoning, off-road Jeep tours and caving are all available in the area.

Solitude Condos Are Easy to Reach

Solitude is just 28 miles from Salt Lake City International Airport and a shuttle service runs to Solitude, meaning that no time is lost in hitting the slopes. Rental cars are also available for those wanting to explore the surrounding area.

Places to Visit from Solitude Vacation Rentals

Salt Lake City has a fascinating past, closely linked to the Mormon faith. The city has many informative museums exhibiting everything imaginable from fossilized dinosaur skeletons to abstract art. The Utah Museum of Fine Arts, the Pioneer Memorial Museum, and the Classic Cars International Auto Museum all provide for fun days out. Ogden is within easy reach of your Solitude lodging and has a historic district around 25th Street or you can visit the George S. Eccles Dinosaur Park. There are a host of national parks in the area, including Arches National Park, the stunning red rocks of Bryce Canyon, Canyonlands National Park, and Zion National Park.
