25th Street – center of Ogden activity

1. Moments from Eccles Conference center

2. 2 minutes from Ogden Raptors Field

3. A few minutes drive from Weber State University

4. 15 minutes drive to Hill Air Force Base

5. Treehouse Children’s museum - Across the street from the Solomon Center the other way is the nonprofit educational Treehouse Museum.

6. The Junction (5 minutes walk) is a fantastic new complex which included the awesome Salomon Center recreation complex, restaurants and theaters only two blocks away from here. It's located a tad northeast of here on the north side of 24th, West side of Washington. An easy 5 minute walk. Closed on Sunday.

• Inside the Solomon Center you'll find:

o iRock Utah, a huge indoor rock climbing and bouldering complex

o iFly, a vertical wind tunnel that lets you fly (indoor skydiving essentially)

o Flowrider, a year round, indoor surf wave.

o The biggest Gold's Gym we've ever seen,

o A huge indoor swimming pool.

o A bowling alley

o Three restaurants

o The Fat Cats Arcade will keep you entertained with billiards, bumper cars (!), pool tables and an arcade

o Across the street from the Solomon Center is the Megaplex 13 theater a modern theater complex with 13 screens.

Restaurants on 25th Street

1. The Union Grill - A few steps to the west inside Union Station.

2. Jasoh - At the southeast end of our block upstairs. A new and welcome addition here on 25th. They have a sit down white tablecloth side and a pub side. Both offer great choices and nice views out many of the seats. They say they serve 'New American Cuisine'.

3. Rovali's Ristorante Italiano - On this side of the street a few steps to the east. Good solid food here.

4. Tona Sushi - On the upper block (one to the east of ours) there are a bunch of choices.

Tona might be our favorite restaurant on the street. Sushi in Utah? Take our word, it’s excellent. You'll be surprised.

5. Roosters Brewing Company - Also in the upper block, across the street. We like the food a lot and the beer too!

6. Bistro 258 - Across the street from Roosters. One of the better restaurants on the street.

7. The Athenian - On the upper block is OK. They make a decent gyro for lunch.

8. Great Harvest Bread - The closest thing we have to a national chain on 25th (upper block). They make great bread and good sandwiches. You can smell the bread being baked in the morning clear down here at The Grand.

9. Sonora Grill - Over in The Junction. Excellent Mexican food. Be sure to get the guacamole, made fresh tableside.

10. Iggy's Sports Grill next door to Sonora Grill if you're looking for a sports bar kind of place.

Location - Ogden sits 35 miles north of Salt Lake City. It is an outdoor and cultural destination and boasts a Sundance Film Fest venue. It's easy to see why the New York Times, Wall Street Journal, Ski, Sunset, Forbes and others have called Ogden 'one of the ten places you gotta go' and America's next high adventure destination Mecca.

About Scot Nicol

Two of my great grandparents were born in Ogden in 1867. My mom's maiden name (Woodmansee) appears on at least two still-standing buildings in Ogden. There were many others in the past that have since been torn down.

I love the area for its natural beauty and its recreation. The mountain biking in the summer and the skiing in the winter are world class.

Restoring The Grand brought me a great sense of pride and accomplishment, and ties me back to my deep roots in Ogden.

What makes this apartment unique

Great apartment in downtown Ogden.

  • 5 of 5

We loved the open concept apartment. It was well furnished. Beautiful view of Mt Ben Lomand and right on the famous 25th street. It was accessible to all things local. Especially liked the Saturday street festivals. Scot was very easy to work with. A wonderful place for all seasons. We will definitely go back again.

Close to great restaurants and bike/walking trails. Easy drive to City Center and downtown SLC. Loved sitting out on the deck listening to the night life and taking in the beautiful view.

Beautiful property in downtown Ogden

  • 5 of 5

We've stayed here a number of times, and you can read my reviews from previous stays. It is simply a well maintained, excellent property on 25th st in Ogden. The views of the mountains are incredible. We'll be staying next year.

Comfortable and Very Convenient

  • 5 of 5

My husband, mother and I had a great stay at Scot's place in early January 2017. The space was warm and welcoming...Scot was very responsive when I emailed/texted him initially about the space, and then throughout. The LR/DR space was larger than the photos reveal. The bedrooms and baths were great...nice kitchen too. Garage with opener was great, but not quite long enough for a one-ton truck. Nonetheless, the garage door opener was very handy. The only difficulty that we encountered was figuring out how to get the television news on for my mom. There wasn't a clear instruction manual readily available. The problem was solved in about 50 seconds when we asked our 20-year-old son for help. So, we just chalked it up to the inherent techno-incompetance of our 50-year-old brains. ;-)

My family and I come to Ogden to visit relatives every year and we usually stay in hotels. However, this trip we found Scot Nicol's place and it added a great deal to our visit! The place is expertly designed and decorated and remains an extremely comfortable place to stay. It has a wonderful wood burning fireplace and an excellent grill on the patio. My family and I would highly recommend staying here over hotels in the area. On our future visits to Ogden we will absolutely hope to stay here again! Outstanding experience!
