About Erin Pickens

I am a custom builder in the Salt Lake valley I have been doing so for 31 years. My wife is from Chicago we love it here because there are so many outdoor things to do winter or summer. We hike, ski, camp, snow shoe, bike and float the rivers in our area.

Erin Pickens purchased this house in 2003

Why Erin Pickens chose Sandy

I have several rental properties that I rent out yearly, this property just seemed like the perfect location for someone to stay short term, because it is walking distance from shopping, restaurants, and the Bus Line. Easy to find, straight shot from I-15. There are biking trails, hiking trails, golf courses, ski resorts, shopping areas, restaurants and more. It is easy to get to a variety of locations within 30 minutes or less!

What makes this house unique

Because it is so close to Little Cottonwood road and such a quiet area for someone from out of town, it's a find. Fabulous view of the mountains.

Great location and a very comfortable home/great owners

  • 5 of 5

I have rented this house before, and once again it is a wonderful home, nicely appointed, very comfortable, very clean, that Is very close to the access road to Little Cottonwood Canyon for great skiing. There are lots of stores and ski rental places close by. The owners are very accommodating and granted us a late checkout. Our group this time, as last time, was very happy with this choice.

Great owner, great property

  • 5 of 5

Our family of five had a wonderful stay over Christmas and the following week. The kitchen is stocked with all the basic cooking spices and ingredients (oil, sugar, salt, garlic powder, etc.) which was greatly appreciated. Beds were comfortable, house was extremely clean, and the location can't be beat. Great pizza place across the street and numerous other restaurants, and getting to Alta in the mornings was super easy.

Great house close to Little Cottonwood Canyon

  • 5 of 5

Just completed a fantastic trip to Utah for skiing and this house helped make the visit easy and enjoyable. Perfect location just west of Little Cottonwood Canyon, makes it a great choice if you're skiing in those places. The beds were comfortable, kitchen modern and well appointed, and everything worked as promised. With a garage to keep the car in, getting out in the morning was simple and moving in and out a breeze. We will definitely plan to stay here on our next visit to the Utah powder.

family stay

  • 5 of 5

This stay over the Thanksgiving Holiday was our second time renting this home.

It is a very nice, clean a great place to stay. We stay with our adult children and grand kids, and we all have plenty of space. The downstairs family room is a great place for the kids to hang out!.

Close to shops and the freeway! We will sure rent again when we come back to Utah.

Great home and Great Location

  • 4 of 5

Check in was one of the easiest out of all the places I've stayed. I travel a lot for work. The two main things I look for are location and comfort. This place exceeded my expectations. The owner is very accommodating and will be on property within minutes if needed.

I would recommend this place for anyone!
