Beautiful house oh so close to the mountains
Our extended family stayed here for a pre-Christmas vacation and loved it! Plenty of space to spread out, comfortable beds, huge three-car garage, it was great! Just 25 minutes up to the ski resorts in Big Cottonwood Canyon, and yet also close to grocery shopping and gas. Scotch was also a pleasure to work with!

Awesome location. Very cool space—lots of room. Wonderful environment for A family gathering.
WOW - Great House PLUS Fantastic Service!
Our group of 13 adults had a wonderful stay at the Willows. The house was rustic, spacious and in a great location. We especially enjoyed the hot tub on the deck at the end of the day. My wife and I have rented dozens of times in different cities using VRBO and I can honestly say I have never stayed anywhere with this level of service! Scott the manager lives in an apartment under the garage. He was fantastic - when we needed something he was extremely responsive. Most places I have stayed at will just tell you the answer if you have a question - he actually was right there and willing to help whenever needed. Scott went well above and beyond his normal job by picking up people at the airport when we were in a bind (not once - but twice)! When we needed privacy, he was out of the way and we didn't even know he was there. The kitchen was well stocked with dishes and each of the bathrooms was well stocked with soaps, shampoo, conditioner, makeup removal etc. Scott made sure the bed arrangements were best suited for our group. The towels and bedding were better quality than most places we have stayed! We will definitely stay again in the future!
Incredible Vacation Home
We rented this home for a week at the end of April to attend a family wedding. We met Scott when we arrived and he showed us around the truly stunning home. He was very responsive to our needs during the entire trip and went above and beyond to make our stay everything we had hoped it would be.
The home is located minutes from Little Cottonwood Canyon and just a few hundred yards from the Bell Canyon Boulders Trailhead. We enjoyed daily hikes to the Bell Canyon Reservoir and driving up to Snowbird. The home is also conveniently located close to the shopping and theatres on 9400 and 10600 South.
The layout of the home is excellent with a large living area, kitchen, dining area and deck located on the main floor. This was the main gathering spot for are family gatherings. There is also another large living area on the bottom floor with a pool/ping pong table and home theater area. This worked well for when we had multiple activities happening at the same time. There are six bedrooms located on the various levels of the home, including three with king size beds. We only had 8 people but the home can easily accommodate four couples and six kids.
The views are spectacular but especially enjoyable while sitting in the hot tub on the upper deck. The home had everything we needed in the kitchen for our meals. We enjoyed it so much, we hardly ate outside the home during the week. There is a three car garage and plenty of parking if needed on the street when we had guests.
We look forward to coming back during the winter. This is a perfect home and location for a family ski trip.
We had an amazing trip, and the Willow's Ski Retreat was the perfect place for us to stay. Lots of room to spread out, beautiful/well stocked kitchen, great view from the hot tub. This is the second year we've taken this trip to Utah, and we plan to return to Willow's annually until they stop letting us:)
Scott was a welcoming, helpful and proactive host, who made our stay comfortable. Thanks for your help Scott!! See you next year :)
This place was awesome!and Scott was an incredibly helpful host!
Comfortable, roomy, with Sonos and huge TVs, we could not have found a better place for the five of us guys. King beds for each of us. A hot tub with an awesome view and close to all the ski areas. Scott had spot on recommendations for restaurants and ski shops. Definitely coming back!!
