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 Downtown

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.

Wonderful property

  • 5 of 5

This property was a great place for six of us to stay. Some skied and others had an event at the Salt Palace which was very convenient. The access to grocery stores and restaurants was excellent. The living area on the first floor was nice, especially the kitchen. It was well stocked. We had a wonderful time and would certainly stay there again.

Great location, lovely home

  • 4 of 5

From living in SLC for thirteen years, we were familiar with the location and knew it would be great and it truly was. You can easily walk downtown or go anywhere downtown via Uber for $6. The evening views are great.

The home is in great shape, especially the kitchen. The photos are spot-on and represent the home well. We loved the fireplace and coziness of the open area kitchen/living room.

The owner was easy to deal with and promptly answered our emails prior to booking.

A few items did detract from the experience but wouldn't stop us from booking again. There's a garage but there's a car parked there. If the weather had been bad, this would have been a bigger deal. Some of the earlier reviews mentioned confusion over the recycling and trash. We did not encounter this since the bins were full from Christmas, three weeks prior. The television in the living room only received local channels and those couldn't be viewed given the poor quality reception. The downstairs television did not receive any channels, even after resetting the box twice.

Super nice large home within walking distance to Salt Palace

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed in this home every year for the past 7 years during the Outdoor Retailer trade show. It's great in so many ways : the kitchen is big and beautiful and totally equipped for cooking, the back deck is a great place to have a meal or entertain, it's walking distance to downtown with so many great restaurants and shops , the bedrooms are spacious and comfortable, it's on a very quiet street and it has a garage. We would highly recommend this house to anyone with a group or a family looking for a great location in SLC.

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.

Perfect Spot

  • 5 of 5

We were in town for our daughter's graduation and were able to stay here for 3 nights. The location is perfect. Close enough to downtown to be able to walk but in a secluded area. The back deck was perfect for family gatherings and the kitchen was roomy enough to fit the family. It was clean and well stocked with everything you need to fill like you are at home. Thanks for a great experience.
