About Greg & Janet Reed

We live in South Jordan, Utah, which is just 1 hour from the cabin. It's a great get away 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 gathering place for a quiet get away.

Greg & Janet Reed purchased this cabin in 1980

Why Greg & Janet Reed chose Utah

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, just a short drive from downtown Midway and Deer Valley 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. You can sip your hot cocoa across from the 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. One has a queen bed and an attached sleeping area with a twin day bed/trundle, a separate bedroom with a full size bed and crib.

The bathroom with shower and separate washroom are on the main floor. Upstairs we have a large open room, couch, Daybed/trundle 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 TV 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 the Redstone Cinemas. It’s the perfect spot to get away.

An old style cabin in a pretty location.

  • 4 of 5

This cabin is constructed and furnished with comfy cast-offs from the city home, collected and installed over the decades. Not luxury but warm and sufficient for our group of seven adults. Owners were responsive and helpful.

Great Location! We would stay again.

  • 5 of 5

Our stay was great the kitchen was fully stocked with items to use, the fridge and stove worked great. It’s a great location about 15 minutes to Jordanelle for Ice Fishing and minutes away for Snowmobiling.

There was plenty of space for all of us to have a great time we went with friends and family they had great movies. There is no internet and terrible cell service so we were forced to unplug for the weekend which was actually really nice. We than did what we went for and spent time away with one another and had a great time!

The owners were prompt with their responses to any questions I had and to the approval process. Yes there were dead bugs in the windows seal as someone had previously stated, but if you can look past that and enjoy yourself it’s well worth it. We would stay again.

Cozy cabin in beautiful winter wonderland

  • 4 of 5

This cabin is definitely "grandpa's cabin" but was a wonderful place for our family get-together. There are plenty of beds and lots of bedding, a fully equipped kitchen and two areas for watching DVDs or VHS videos. There is a pool table that we loved also. We had a little trouble getting the cabin temperature stable--but it was 8 degrees outside so that was understandable. We had some rooms that were overly hot and some that were freezing cold the first night, but we figured it out for the second night. There is only one bathroom, but the bathroom sink is outside the toilet and shower area and we didn't find this to be an inconvenience at all. The cabin has great access to it, and is only about 3 minutes from great snowmobiling and cross-country skiing trails. The area around the cabin is breathtakingly beautiful. The snow was on the trees and piled deep around the cabin, but we could drive right to the cabin and walk right in the front door. It was a fun place to be together, play games and be away from the world. We went to a Mexican restaurant in Heber the first night and to an Italian cafe in Midway the second night and both were delicious. The owner was easy to work with and communicated well.

Nostalgic granny's cabin in the woods

  • 5 of 5

We LOVED staying here. It's so different from Zermatt and The Homestead and other fancy places in Midway and Park City.

It brought tears to my eyes as I was reminded of my Midway cabin growing up. Lots of little nooks and crannies, including a hidden attic for tiny grandkids to play, a "school" classroom to play, a ping pong table room, and beds spread everywhere. We ate breakfast on the large patio. We built a fire out back and enjoyed s'mores and an incredible view of the stars. We played basketball, threw a football, turned on the 50's music on a record player in the little playhouse. We cooked meals there, and the kitchen is well stocked with dishes and pans. Fridge, stove, oven, shower, toilet all work well. It was so quiet that I could hardly fall asleep. We did not turn on a TV, video, or search for WiFi, or look at Facebook, NOT ONCE in 48 hours, which has got to be a record for my kids. Instead they learned how to play chess, played board games until midnight, enjoyed the fire, and read books. Wow!

If you're looking for a clean fancy condo with plush comfortable beds, WiFi, and a pool... this is not your place.

But if your family wants a nostalgic experience in an old cabin in the woods, this place is ideal. We plan to go back next year for sure.

Cons: old beds and bedding; indoor woodburning stoves say "don't use," so we built a fire out back; dead flies in the shower and windows; clean up is unclear--- there's a sign on the door (presumably for family, not paying guests) asking people to put the laundry in the washer and replace sheets on the beds. We wanted to hike or bike nearby, but struggled to find a trail, and drove down to the valley instead.
