Sunset Lodge, our 'Mountain Home' is a beautiful custom built 5000 square foot private house with three levels and vaulted ceilings. Our home is located near the top of the ridge on Solamere Drive in the Lower Deer Valley area. One of the few houses in the Solamere area with spectacular sunset and down valley views. You will end your day of skiing, snowboarding, hiking, or mountain biking enjoying the fantastic sunset view from the front balcony deck off of the timbered Great Room. Then relax in the large hot tub on the extended outside deck overlooking the Park City Valley. In the late summer and fall you will see the colorful array of leaves turning yellow, orange and red across from Sunset Lodge on Masonic Hill. You can just walk or bike from Sunset Lodge to a number of hiking and biking trails.
Our NON-SMOKING, NO PET home is perfect for a large extended family or just as good for two, three or four couples with or without children who want the privacy of their own house. Sunset Lodge is set up for a maximum of 8 adults and additional children. You are a little over one mile from the main Snow Park Lodge at Deer Valley, just over 2 miles to Park City ski resort and two miles from Historic Park City's Old Town Main Street with many great restaurants and interesting shopping. The Park City ski resort now includes Canyons to make the largest ski resort in the USA. You fly into the friendly Salt Lake City International Airport, pick-up your rental car, and you can be at Sunset Lodge in 45 minutes unless you stop to make purchases on your way through Park City.
Concierge Services are available, if desired, to pre-stock the kitchen and house, make advanced reservations, or decorate the house for special occasions and holidays.
Sunset Lodge is located on a quiet drive with little traffic in an exclusive area of Lower Deer Valley. The driveway from the street to the house is heated. There will not be a snow plow on the driveway at 6:30 in the morning and there will not be accumulated snow or ice on the driveway after a 'white-out' day of skiing and/or snowboarding.
Deer Valley ski resort offers complimentary ski storage at Snow Park Lodge so there is no need to carry your skis to the car at the end of the day - unless you plan to ski one of the other great Utah resorts within easy driving distance. Park City ski resort including the Canyons area is just minutes away. Solitude and Brighton are located in Big Cottonwood Canyon. Alta and Snowbird are in Little Cottonwood Canyon. All four resorts in both Cottonwood Canyons are an hours drive away. Snow Basin ski resort is an hour and 15 minutes drive. Powder Mountain ski resort is an hour and 30 minute drive. We have an efficient forced air dryer for six pairs of boots AND six pairs of gloves in the ground floor entry area so wet boots and gloves will never be an issue when you spend your skiing/snowboarding vacation at Sunset Lodge.

About Steven and Kathy
We grew up in Southern California and were fortunate to enjoy both mountain and oceanside activities. We now live in the Florida Keys. We both love sunsets. Our goal was to be able to retire with a mountain home and a oceanside home. 'Sunset Lodge' is our Deer Valley mountain house with a spectacular sunset view 'down valley' overlooking Park City. We also have a Florida Keys house, 'Sunset Reef,' with an equally fantastic sunset view. We are blessed in life with great family and good friends. The photo is from the Park City Jazz Festival; a wonderful event that we supported.
Steven and Kathy purchased this House in 2008
Why Steven and Kathy chose Deer Valley
Deer Valley is a great location for a winter 'ski' house and a summer 'hiking/biking' house. You cannot beat the convenience of flying into the Salt Lake City International airport and being at our home in under an hour. Deer Valley ski resort is a little over one mile away and there are a number of fabulous ski resorts within easy driving distance. The summer hiking and biking is unmatched in our opinion.
What makes this House unique
We fell in love with the fantastic views of the surrounding mountains and the Park City valley. Enjoying the fabulous deck to look 'down valley' over Park City is wonderful, especially at sunset. We enjoy music and have a nice stereo system with speakers in a number of the rooms and on the decks. There are many ways to relax in our mountain home.

Great house for large or multiple families
This house was perfect for us -- <5 minutes from the base of Deer Valley and close to Main Street; it had the BEST views; and it was nicely laid out to accommodate our large family. On the latter point, the house had 3 distinct living areas and 2 masters (in addition to a large bunk room and another guest room) so plenty of room for our large group (6 adults; 2 kids). The house was also very organized, and the kitchen was very well appointed. It is also very kid-friendly with an available crib, high chair, stroller and children's books. We would definitely rent this house again. The owners were also very responsive to our emails/questions. Highly recommend!!
Perfect vacation home for families
Sunset Lodge was the perfect place for our family vacation. It is a beautiful home and is just as spectacular as pictured. It is close to all activities (downtown Park City, tubing, skiing, skating), but also was the ideal place for us to enjoy just staying home in front of a fire on a snowy evening. I highly recommend Sunset Lodge and look forward to staying there again in the future.
Beautiful home with everything you need for an enjoyable stay.
Our whole family was impressed with this home the minute we walked in. From the pool table to the hot tub to the well stocked kitchen and bathrooms, this home lacks for nothing. It’s location is close to town but far enough away to enjoy nature. Would definitely recommend this Home to all my friends and hopefully will be able to return again.
Best vacation home we have stayed in! Our family experience was fantastic. Thanks Steve & Kathy
This a beautiful and well- maintained property, and Steve and Kathy are superb owners/managers. All our expectations were exceeded. The decor was beautiful, beds comfortable, and setting overlooking Park City hard to beat. The electronics and lights are all well labeled with detailed use instructions. I would not hesitate recommending this home to others. It is very deserving of the 5 stars. The other glowing reviews found for Sunset Lodge, detailing the great things about this rental, are true.
This is our 2nd visit & couldn't wait to come back! Hope to make this an annual destination as this is the perfect property for our needs
Unsurpassed Ski Vacation Stay!
Sunset Lodge is by far the best ski home rental we have ever experienced. The view is amazing, it feels intimate yet in reality a close drive to the slopes and Main St. Everything in the house was organized, clean and beautiful. The large bedrooms were very comfortable, and the pool table was a hit with the teens. There is even a boot warmer for your ski gear! The property manager was wonderful too - he came by to check on us and was so friendly I asked him to stay for a bit and tell us about Park City. If you have a large group and enjoy a comfortable, clean and well equipped lodge with beautiful decoration and a hot tub, this is the lodge for you! Thanks Steve! The Mathers
