About the Property
House, 4 Bedrooms + Den, 3.5 Baths, (Sleeps 12)
Your families will settle right in and feel completely at home in this warm, sunny, beautifully furnished, 4-bedroom lodge. There's plenty of room for everyone to spread out after a day outdoors. Relax by one of our fireplaces, listen to the gurgling of the stream running by the house, take in the awesome views of Ogden Valley and Snowbasin from every room. Watch for the abundant wildlife... try to spot deer, elk, moose, fox, wild turkeys, rabbits, pheasant, hawks and eagles.
Our main floor features an amazing great room with a fireplace, log-vaulted ceilings, panoramic views and a baby grand piano. The great room opens to the dining room and our large, well-appointed kitchen. The master suite with a king-size bed, master bath and walk-in closet is also located on the main level, as are a tiled entry room (for all those wet clothes), powder room, laundry room and 2-car garage.
Upstairs are two very large bedrooms with queen-size beds, another full bath and an office area in the loft overlooking the great room. Connect your laptop in the office to print out your boarding passes for your return flights (wireless internet provided throughout, with a printer in the office).
Downstairs is a perfect environment for your kids, with a large, sunny bunk room that sleeps six in comfortable twin beds ... the deer and wild fowl come right up and browse by the windows! There's a third full bath; an adjacent living area with a second fireplace; 65' TV with cable, surround-sound, VCR, DVD player and I-Pod dock; a game room with foosball and ping pong; plus plenty of board games and a library for those family evenings after a day of active fun.
Throughout the house the hot water is on a recirculation system so there's no waiting to step into the shower or fill the bath.
As you drive 10 minutes to our valley supermarket your kids will point out flocks of sheep, cattle, llamas and horses.
This is the perfect home for a few families to meet ... or for an extended family reunion ... or for a getaway of friends.

About the owner: We live in Coronado, California (across the bay from San Diego), enjoying a mild climate on the Pacific Ocean. Dad is a retired engineer, now 'paying it forward' in a second career as a physics teacher in a low-income high school. We've always taken family ski and back-country vacations, to get away from the crowd. We longed for a permanent place in the mountains where we could periodically retreat from our city life. We had the great fortune to have swapped our timeshare for a ski week in the Ogden Valley, and on Friday that week we were hooked ... we bought this land, and were able to build our dream getaway home a few years later! We designed our home specifically so that we could enjoy it with other families, with the adults relaxing on the main level while our kids and their friends could have their own space, on the lower level, private but not out of our reasonable supervision. Our goal in renting our home is not to make a huge return on investment but, rather, to defray expenses by having families like ours appreciate it as much as we do. When you look at the cost of a rental timeshare, then consider the space and comfort that our home offers for a comparable price ... there really is no comparison!
Why the Owner Chose Huntsville, UT, USA:
The Ogden Valley is fantastic and, quite possibly, unique. Our home is private, but minutes from two of the best ski resorts in the world. We are situated amidst incredible beauty in a very rural setting, yet we're an easy, one-hour drive from Salt Lake City Airport. The local people are warm, friendly and welcoming. We can leave our home in Coronado in the morning and ski that afternoon. This is truly one of the still 'undiscovered' retreats in our great country!
The Unique Benefits at this House:
Our home is large, yet warm and cozy. Coming from the city, we relish the amazing views of the valley and surrounding mountains, which change by the minute as the sun moves across the sky. We enjoy searching out the wildlife as we sip our morning coffee, seeing who can count the most deer on the hillsides, and who can spot the bald eagle that is soaring from its nest across the stream. At night, we gaze at the arch of the Milky Way and the billions of stars, far from the interfering lights of the city and suburbs. It may sound strange ... but we always have a little trouble falling asleep on our first night here, because of the total absence of the usual noises we've grown used to ... traffic (and car alarms!!!), planes, neighbors' TVs and loud conversations, barking dogs ... our first morning, though, when we wake up to the sound of the water in our stream and the faint mooing of the cows several miles away, we feel an almost physical release of accumulated stress. This is our Eden ... our most relaxing place!
