Why Jay chose Huntsville

With the Winter Olympics being awarded to Salt Lake City, my brother and I had begun coming to the area to vacation and check it out. We looked into the 'big name' resorts but found them a bit too crowded and overpriced for our taste. We came to love the 'locals only' atmosphere of Snowbasin and Powder Mtn. The subsequent investments made in Snowbasin to bring it to world class Olympic standards are wonderful, yet the lack on slopeside condos keeps the atmosphere just like we want it. We always have a fabulous time when we are at the house and would not want to be anywhere else.

amazing and peaceful in one place, we will call it home again soon!

  • 5 of 5

Sometimes it's hard to please everyone when ages vary so much, however Polo grounds is loved by my 6 year old, the 48 year old(me) and all in between. The inside just flows and the view from the deck is something you have to see! We extended our stay because we just didn't want to leave Polo grounds, Jay is helpful and always responds to his guests.

We won't stay anywhere else, cause we found our home away from home but better!

Awesome Family Getaway Home

  • 5 of 5

Well stocked in a beautiful remote location, this rental home was perfect for our family vacation. There was plenty of room for everyone to spread out, a grass area on a gentle slope in the backyard for the young ones to chase butterflies, and a majestic view off the back patio. The owner was easy to communicate with answering all our questions. We enjoyed our stay and would rent again.

Awesome House and Beautiful Location!

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying in this home! The home was immaculate and is a great layout for a large group. With living areas on the main floor and the basement, there was plenty of room for us to spread out. All of the beds were comfortable, with large bedrooms throughout. The kids loved the ping pong table and the great selection of board games.

The views of Snow Basin and the valley from the deck and back windows are amazing! The pictures don't do it justice! We loved relaxing on the deck in the evening and watching the shadows change in the valley as the sun went down.

The location is very quiet and relaxing but not too far from a local grocery store in Eden and about 20 minutes from a larger grocery store in Ogden. We all had fun paddle boarding at Pineview reservoir, playing up at Snowbasin resort, and hiking some of the beautiful trails in the area.

The hosts Jay and Ellen were very responsive and provided all the information we needed for a smooth check in, as well as answering questions we had during our stay. They also had lots of great recommendations for local activities.

All in all, a great place to stay. We visited in early June and the weather was perfect! I'm sure it would be beautiful for any of the four seasons though.

We highly recommend this home and this part of the country!

A Great house with Awesome views!

  • 5 of 5

Owners and management were very friendly and professional with helpful recommendations. We had a group of 11 people including 4 children. This house was perfect because it has a upstairs and downstairs living room so the kids could play video games downstairs. Plenty of space and bedrooms. It even has a downstairs game room currently being built so unfinished but it had a ping pong table set up so that was a nice unexpected bonus we all enjoyed playing. All the rooms are nice. House was clean and well stocked. I would definitely rent again. Loved the views of the whole valley below, the lake and mountains.

Amazing ski home and trip!

  • 5 of 5

We had such a wonderful time at this home. The views alone were worth the plane ride. This was our first time skiing at Snow Basin (we usually ski Park City) and it was amazing. Lift lines were short to non-existent and the ski instructors were just great with the kids.

This house has everything you can imagine and the folks we rented from were very helpful with restaurant recommendations. See you next Winter !

What a View

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at the house. The house could not be in a better place to view the sun setting over snowbasin and the canyon. The house is full of windows allowing you to appreciate the view from almost every room.
