Charming Stone Cottage in Canyon Near Alta & Snowbird

Bedrooms 3
Property type cottage
Minimum Stay 3 nights


About the property

Cottage, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6-8)

Nestled in Little Cottonwood Canyon just below Alta & Snowbird, this cozy stone cottage offers both privacy and convenience. Ideal for family getaways, it's near resorts but away from the noise and bustle. With the charm of a two-story New England country house, it huddles beneath the tall canyon cliffs, surrounded by the woods, on a half acre. Views from its many windows afford scenic glimpses of the glacier-carved granite cliffs on all sides. Just far enough from the city to feel sequestered in another world but close enough to be shopping in less than ten minutes, you can enjoy the library of classics and best-sellers, Internet, TV-DVD, CD stereo, and a variety of board games, enough to let you leave the world behind. This 90-year-old cottage is built with the gray granite stone from the surrounding canyon and will be a place you'll want to escape to again.

Great location!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay in this cottage! It had plenty of room for our two families, and was clean and well stocked. The location was fabulous- perfect for skiing at Snowbird and Alta, and also close enough to head into town for groceries/restaurants. Kitchen is small, but appliances are updated, and we were able to cook many meals there. Pots and pans could use a re-fresh. Bunk room is suitable for smaller children. This is great place to stay with young children- lots of toys/activities for them. We loved the gas fireplace and cozy, large family room! Giles and Annie were super sweet and accommodating. Thanks for a great ski vacation!

Awesome dads' ski weekend

  • 5 of 5

Early March 2017, ski weekend with several old friends. House was great-- perfect spot between Alta/Snowbird uphill and Sandy (supermarket, restaurants, etc.) downhill. Even Solitude was only about 1/2 hour away. Snow was great.

House is very comfortable and well equipped We cooked some great meals there. This is a great spot for a group ski vacation.

Little Cottonwood House

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a wonderful time in this cottage. It was very well supplied with everything we needed for cooking and relaxing. Plus, great views of the cliffs from the windows and very secluded. It is very close to the Alta and Snowbird ski resorts. We enjoyed relaxing in the mornings and evenings before and after skiing. We would definitely come back again.

Charming cottage close to skiing

  • 4 of 5

We stayed over President's weekend with another family of three. Loved the feel of the house, very cozy (but not small), so homey, perfect for relaxing and conversation. The living room with fireplace and huge windows was the perfect gathering spot. The kitchen is small but we still cooked a turkey dinner and ate at the large dining room table.

Beds were good and bathrooms clean with great showers. An easy 10 minute drive up the canyons to Snowbird or Alta. Quick 15 minute drive down the canyon to Whole Foods. Loved the hospitality of the owners. Would definitely stay again!
