Overview

About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 8-12)

LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION! This spacious home is perfectly situated in the heart of Historic Old Town and offers 3 bedrooms, 2 ½ baths, in-home laundry and a relaxing hot tub.

This home is truly Ski-In/Ski-Out, with Park City's old town ski runs located nearby. No need to drive to Park City Mountain Resort; just put your boots on, grab your skis and head to the Town Ski Lift. You can be sitting on the Town Lift headed to the top of PCMR in less than 6 minutes. After your day of skiing, you can take the “Quit ‘N Time” run right back to the house. Powder shots are a frequent bonus on the scenic ski home.

Along with excellent access to the Park City Mountain Resort, this home is located just a short walk from Historic Main Street's many shops, restaurants and the famed Egyptian Theater. There is no need for taxis, and you can leave the car at home. Walk to all the après ski areas right on Main Street. Be sure to catch Park City's free bus, which will take you wherever you want to go in town. Historic Main Street, Kimball Junction, North of Main, Quarrey Village, Park City Mountain Resort, Deer Valley Resort, Canyons Resort, or the Utah Olympic Park for a day of fun-filled activities, shopping and great food.

This updated home offers 1,800 square feet of living space, on four different levels. You’ll enter the home on the top level, where you’ll find slate flooring in the entry hall with room to store all of your outdoor gear. There’s a newly remodeled half-bath on this level, along with the recently updated kitchen. The kitchen features new 42” cabinets, granite countertops, stainless steel appliances and slate flooring. The fully equipped kitchen has everything you need to prepare a gourmet meal. The dining room table seats six comfortably with additional seating for three on the kitchen bar stools.

Take a few steps down from the kitchen and you are in the open and spacious living room. You’ll be welcomed by the warm, wood burning fireplace and gorgeous hardwood floors. Relax by the fire while watching a movie on the large flat-screen TV (DVD and VCR) or enjoy playing one of the many board games available. There is plenty of seating for everyone, including a comfortable fold-out couch which offers an additional sleeping area for two. Be sure to enjoy one of the two balconies offered in this home, which has a gas barbeque and incredible views of Historic Main Street, Old Town and mountains in the background.

A few more steps down and you’re on the next level, where you’ll find the second and third bedrooms. One bedroom is equipped with a queen sized bed, while the other has two twin beds. This level has those gorgeous hardwood floors throughout, a full bathroom and a washer/dryer unit.

Step down from this level into your own private master retreat. Located on its own level of the home, the master bedroom offers all the privacy you need. It includes a king-sized bed, a large flat-screen TV with a DVD player and two large closets. The private master bathroom features a dual-sink vanity, a soaking tub and separate shower. There is a 2nd balcony off the master bedroom, with a large and inviting hot tub.

Wireless Internet is available throughout the home at no additional charge, as is Cable Television. This home also offers two additional fold-away beds for extra guests. A private off street carport accommodates two large cars or three smaller cars.

Whether you are looking for a perfect ski vacation with friends or a family trip to the mountains, this home is sure to fit your needs. As a long-time resident of Park City, I’m happy to offer my personal recommendations. I can recommend a restaurant to celebrate that special occasion, where to rent ski equipment, or local activities that will keep the kids entertained.

Located only 45 minutes from the Salt Lake City airport. Arrive at the airport in the morning, and be on the ski runs by noon!

About Jeanne Brennan

My husband and I along with our three children and three dogs are avid skiers and an all around outdoors family. We recently moved from our Old Town home on Woodside to Park Meadows, a neighborhood located across town so the kids and dogs could have a yard and trampoline. We now have to mow the lawn.

Jeanne Brennan purchased this house in 1992

Why Jeanne Brennan chose Old Town

I purchased this home in the early 1990's after graduating from the University of Utah's pharmacy school. At that time, I was 23 and very single. I loved the fact that I could party on Main Street and walk home and no driving was necessary. It was truly a gift when the Town Lift was built and I could put on my skis, walk out the front door and be on the mountain in minutes. The same is true for mountain biking. Unfortunately, I eventually grew out of my convenient and adorable Woodside home when my three children began to get older. We now needed four bedrooms and a yard for a trampoline and the dogs. This home was never purchased as a vacation rental, but rather as my first home.

What makes this house unique

You are going to love the convenience and all around aura of this home. It is in the heart of Old Town so no need to worry about driving or parking. You can enjoy excellent restaurants and entertainment minutes from your front door. The home has off street parking with a double wide carport in the front of the home that easily fits two automobiles. You can bike, hike, ski, eat and shop minutes from your front door - no driving required!

Map

No need to drive to Park City Ski Resort whereas this property is just a few minutes from the Town Lift ski runs in the winter. During the summer enjoy killer mountain biking and hiking trails minutes from your front door. Mountain biking in this area is some of the best in the state. This location is ideal for those who want to play more and drive less. You can walk to Main Street to shop, have lunch or dinner and enjoy live theater at the Egyptian Theater. Once on Main Street you can catch the free local bus to just about anywhere in Park City.

Amazing place!!

  • 5 of 5

This stay was one of the best VRBO experiences I’ve had. Not only was the house better than the photographs but the owner was extremely easy to work with and responsive to help us have the best time ever. I can’t say enough great things about this booking, but it’s places like this that make me love VRBO!!

Great place. Great location. Great experience

  • 5 of 5

Rented the place for a mid-March ski trip over 5 days. Everything was working, clean, and in order. Very comfortable, centrally located house close to downtown Park City and to the ski-in trail. Would rent here again.

Nice place, great location and a very helpful owner!!

  • 5 of 5

We had 6 guys stay for a long ski weekend and the place couldn't be much better located in terms of being near Old Town as well as skiing access to Park City. The owner was extremely helpful with tips on lift tickets, transportation, etc. The accommodations are very clean and suitable for a great stay. We will likely stay here again if we ski here next year and it's available.

Great place. Just like home only I can ski here

  • 5 of 5

Property was lovely and well maintained. The location was exceptional. 120 steps up to ski run. And about the same down to town for dinner. The beds were comfy. The hit tub was luxurious after a day in the slopes. I would definitely stay here again and I would recommend this home to family and friends.

Great house in Oldtown - Park City

  • 4 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. The house was very comfortable and had everything you could possibly need down to the kitchen supplies and sunscreen. The hot tub was wonderful after a day of skiing. the kitchen is nice and very functional. This house works pretty well for a group. It is not particularly private as their is no door on the master bedroom or the master bathroom. The house also has four levels so there is lots of walking up and down stairs. I am not sure that I would classify this house as ski-in ski out, since you have to walk up a very long flight of stairs in your ski boots to access the cat walk that takes you down to the Town lift. It is also not a beginner slope to ski back to the house so this might not work for some. We walked down to the bus station and took the bus into the base which wasnt bad. You can also Uber back and forth which we did a few times.

Owner's Response: I completely agree with the current lack of privacy involving the master bedroom and bath, whereas this has been mentioned in a prior guest's review. As such I will be putting barn doors on the master bedroom and master bath this summer. This will greatly improve privacy of the master bedroom. As to the home being truly ski and ski out, I lived in my Woodside house while my three children where little and walked them up the staircase every time we skied which was a lot. I found walking up the staircase to be a luxury despite having to sometimes carry my children's skis. I never thought I was hard core but perhaps I am. My children often would ditch me on the mountain and ski home without me. Its all perspective and since I lived in the home for so long I didn't realize that the staircase can be difficult to climb for many and that the ski trial home was difficult to navigate. I was focused on the fact that I didn't have to drive to the resort and deal with the parking issues and getting everyone dressed in the car. The Town Lift is literally only one to two city blocks away from the front door and you can still park on the street in front of the Town Lift if you arrive early enough. I will edit my listing to provide a better perspective from a guest's point of view as to the convenience and necessity for some guests to have an automobile; allowing more convenient access to the Town Lift, access to the base of Park City Mountain Resort, a means for transporting elderly guests physically unable to climb the steep long staircase and to allow convenient trips to and from the local grocery and liquor store(s). I didn't see any comments about walking to Main Street for shopping and/or dinner and perhaps that is because walking to Main Street doesn't involve clunking around in ski boats. There is no doubt that staying at my Woodside property involves intense walking if you decide to leave your car at home; welcome to Old Town.

Guys Weekend

  • 5 of 5

This place is great. Walk to Main Street. We had 5 guys which was perfect. Ski during the day and walked to Main Street to dinner and the bars at night. Owner was extremely helpful giving tips. I have rented many places and they usually clear everything out of the kitchen before the next person arrives but not here. All of the little things were there, so we used the pay it forward attitude of using up some things but leaving more for the next group. Will definitely stay here again on our next trip to Park City!
