About the owner: Greg and I are world travelers who live in South Jordan, Utah, with a second home near St. George which gives us a warmer spot to live in during parts of the winter. The cabin is our gather place for families year round. We'd love to share it with you. There are hiking trails, hotpots, springs and pure mountain air. The cabin offers a roomy mountain retreat and a quiet get away from the city.

Why the Owner Chose Midway, UT, USA:
This canyon is beautiful, if you love nature, you'll love this area. It is quite and yet near the bustling city of Park City. Midway is quaint, but offers many fine dinning restaurants. Your comfortable mountain cabin is located in Snake Creek Canyon a short drive from Midway, Deer Valley, Sun Dance and Park City ski areas. You will enter our cabin into a combined living, dining, and kitchen space. The living room has a flat screen TV, and DVD player. Fully equipped kitchen has a full-size refrigerator, stove/oven, microwave, and a coffee maker (which is kept in the attached garage). Three bedrooms are located on the main floor.

Upstairs we have a large open room, couch, two trundle beds with a ping pong table, love sacks, two additional bedrooms with day/pullout beds and a playroom with a king fold out floor bed cushion. There is also an entertainment room with ping pong, TV, and play room upstairs. There is even a pull down loft with stairs if kids want to venture to the bonus loft. We also have a large patio and gazebo in the front of the cabin that can be used in the summer. Located in scenic Snake Creek Canyon right above the Wasatch Golf Course, the cabin is just ten minutes from downtown Midway and 20 min to Park City. In Midway, Pizza Galleria is a fun place to eat and Ridley’s Grocery store has an excellent choice ice cream for only .50 cents a scoop and yes there is ice-skating right in downtown Midway. If you want to warm up you can soak in the Homestead Crater. If you want to see Park City, take an adventure to Red Rock Junction, which is located in the at the base of the Olympic Park. Redstone Center offers many fun family activities, Cold Stone Creamery and Cinemas. It’s the perfect spot to get away.
