Property description

This cozy little cabin is really more of a small house located at Vivian Park up the Provo Canyon. The backyard borders on the South Fork of the Provo River, which merges with the Provo River about 200 yards downstream. Bike trails begin and end here. High quality road bikes and mountain bikes can be rented from owners for $15/day or $95/week.

In the summer fishing, tubing, and river rafting are available on the large Provo River and there is also a large children's fishing pond in the Park area, both only a half block away. Also only a half block away are picnic areas and playgrounds, and during the summer months the 'Heber Creeper' train makes a stop one block away for a scenic trip up the canyon. The train often is disguised as Thomas the Tank. Or you can take the hiking, biking trail a half block away that takes you along the river, past Bridal Veil Falls, and all the way to Provo Lake. Horseback riding is available further up the canyon. Summer ski lift rides at both Sundance and Park City are popular attractions as well. Both places have 'live' outdoor summer theatre. Park City has summer concerts (classical & pop) and an Art Festival. The trailhead for the Provo River Parkway is two blocks away, making the area quickly accessible to both resorts and cities.

During the winter, some of the best skiing in the world is at the Sundance ski resort, only about 5 minutes away, or at Park City about 30 minutes away. In addition, the fabulous slopes of the Snowbird and Alta Ski Resorts are less than an hour away. A popular attraction is daytime or evening tubing at Soldier's Hollow, which may be reached by car or train. The slopes are so huge that you are pulled in your tube to the top by a pulley. Snowboarding and sledding hills abound.

In addition to the above summer and winter activities, year round Sundance has a unique country store and two fabulous restaurants, and Park City has all kinds of restaurants and shops, for those who like shopping.

We provide paper towels, toilet paper, tissue, bath soap, shampoo & conditioner samples, dishwasher detergent, and laundry products. DVD's & board games are available on request, and an XBOX game system & games which attach to the TV are available for rent.

The non-smoking cabin is small but has been completely renovated within the past year. Flooring, furniture, etc. are all new. A lot of money and time have been spent on fixing and upgrading everything. It's rare to find broadband Internet in this area, but this cabin has it for $20 per every gigabyte (48 hrs) access. There are also 2 HD flat screen TV's, one a brand new 37' Vizio 120 Hz, 1080i. The TV's are located in the living-room and bedroom. A powerful Windows 7 desktop computer and laser monochrome printer are provided.

The unique thing about this property is location. Vivian Park was established in the late 1800's and currently has about 30 residences. The view of the River out the back sliding glass doors is remarkable as is the view from the front. The views of the back of Mt. Timpanogos are fabulous. There is a lot of wildlife in the back including wild turkeys on Thanksgiving Day. Truly a mountain retreat, yet only a few minutes from Sundance, BYU, or Downtown Provo, and less than an hour from three other Utah ski resorts. Also, the Salt Lake City airport is only 51 miles away.

Here is a recent testimonial: 'You have a wonderful cabin that is very nicely furnished. My wife and I enjoyed the fact that it's so close to shopping and dining in Provo and very close to Sundance. We went for a walk one afternoon and found ourselves listening to elk bugle all around us. Needless to say, we hope to be able to come back in the future.' - S. Williams

At least one week advance notice is required in order to reserve the cabin.
