About the property

House, 6 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 3.5+ Baths, (Sleeps 20-24)

Winner of the 2016 Utah Heritage Award for outstanding historic preservation, Browning House is a classic Arts and Crafts-period mansion restored to its 1911 elegance, located within the Eccles National Historic District. With rich hardwoods, stained glass and painted murals, this glorious house was originally built by the family of famed firearms inventor John Browning, and superb craftsmanship inspired by the Arts and Crafts Movement is brimming throughout. Browning House features almost 6,000 square feet of indoor space and another 2,500 square feet of outdoor patios and decks, complete with a lush waterfall and fish pond. The house features six spacious bedrooms and 3.5 baths, a chef’s kitchen with all modern appliances, formal dining, and a separate breakfast nook. For ultimate relaxation, enjoy our steam room and private hot-tub, or relax on our covered outdoor smoking deck. Or maybe you just want to enjoy the game on the 64-inch flat screen. Browning House is ideal for ski vacations and family reunions.

Browning House is situated on almost one-half acre with lush flowers, trees and gardens. There is plenty of room for outdoor yard games, or a patio party for up to 50. There is off-street parking for up to seven vehicles.

Browning House is more than a house. It is an unforgettable experience in historic charm, elegance and comfort, all wrapped in a blanket of historic authenticity. $250/night (ask us about discounted rates for says of 14 days or more).

Great place for a large family event

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed the variety of large rooms for family to gather and interact. The fish pond, hot tub, large patio and enclosed yard is terrific.

The only downside is the location. Be aware this is a very old building that has been remodeled many times.

Clean, well stocked, comfortable

  • 5 of 5

We found The Browning Mansion perfect for our family get-together. We had a large group and everyone fit in the house perfectly. The kitchen was large, clean, and well stocked with dishes, spices, etc.

Spacious and comfortable.

  • 4 of 5

If you enjoy a bit of history, a space for socializing, but a space that lets you get off by yourself, all at the same time, this place if for you. You'll read other reviews highlighting bathrooms and internet.

We did not try internet upstairs or downstairs, sticking to the main floor. It worked flawlessly.

Bathrooms may be a bit of a challenge, but my wife confirmed the upstairs shower in the master is suitable and that the downstairs shower is, indeed, the best in the home.

The property owner communicated quickly and clearly, and was on site as we arrived to help us get settled in.

We're going to try other VRBOs in the area, but will likely come back to the Browning House at some point in the future.

Great Home

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the Historic Browning Mansion while skiing at Snow Basin and Powder Mountain. The house is in a perfect location as it only took us 1/2 hour to get to the mountains.

Thinking the showers were going to be a problem based on the other reviews, we found them more of a minor issue, all were comfortable functioning during our stay.

The house was very comfortable, with great bedrooms. It was also perfect for our après ski enjoying large kitchen, rec room and hot tub.

I strongly recommend the house!

For our purposes it was great.

  • 5 of 5

We used the house for a family gathering and it worked great for ages 2 to 80. Sleeping arrangements were great and there were quiet places for naps and several different gathering spots for other groups. The water pressure was low, but we all adjusted. There were plenty of towels.

The place was very clean when we walked in.

The locations is easy to find and we found good parking.

Jerry was so easy to deal with both before and after.

We would go there again.
