About Jim Gute

We purchased this property as an urban getaway from our mountain home in Jackson, Wyoming. We met skiing at Alta, and both attended the University of Utah. We have strong connections to the Salt Lake City community and the Wasatch Mountains, and love the climate and lifestyle that Salt Lake City has to offer.

Jim Gute purchased this townhome in 2007

Why Jim Gute chose Salt Lake City

We chose this community for the climate and ease of access to mountain related activities.

What makes this townhome unique

While in Salt Lake City we enjoy eating at fine restaurants, seeing downtown concerts and events, skiing, mountain biking and shopping, as well as many other activities.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thanks so much for letting my wife and I use your house. It is a wonderful place perfectly located. We have been coming to Salt lake for the last 4 years and stayed in multiple different lodges/condos//townhouses etc, but yours is our favorite. You have done a great job decorating. I cannot tell how much I appreciate your fully equipped kitchen. We hope to get in one more trip this season.

Great place and location!

  • 5 of 5

This property was perfect for our visit to SLC! Very well appointed and close enough to walk to the city center... We wished we could have utilized the back patio more but with a small bit of rain and spring blooming trees, the cushions on the furniture held us back.....oh, well, we made due and really enjoyed our stay.

Beautiful house, great kitchen / yard / location

  • 5 of 5

We spent the weekend in SLC for my son's graduation from Westminster. We wanted a place downtown which was close to everything as well as large enough to have some of his friends and family over for a get together. This place was perfect. The kitchen is amazing - beautiful and stocked with everything. The yard is beautiful with a couch / bench, a dining table and a grill. The house has 3 floors, plenty of room and beautifully maintained.

This place is a gem. For a group of people meeting for a convention from around the country, it was perfect. The bedrooms were very nice but the kitchen, urban patio/garden, and living space were amazing. Great space for social times and hospitality. Tranquil and serene.

San Antonio

The finest VRBO home in SLC!

  • 5 of 5

The moment we arrived, after a three day drive from San Antonio, TX~ thru rain, sleet, blizzard, ice, snow fog and finally sunshine~ it felt like home! Extremely clean, beautiful furniture, VERY comfy beds and linens, fab kitchen and of course, the view! STUNNING! Walked several times to the city. The restaurant list was excellent-although some needed more description of types of foods-but I looked them up on my phone....

Would stay again in a heart beat! Everything you could want!

Nice amenities, good location

  • 4 of 5

Plenty of space and good layout. Kitchen was well supplied and beds were pretty comfortable. I would stay again. With one very deep, thorough cleaning the place would get 5 stars.
