Overview

About the property

Townhouse, 3 Bedrooms, 2.5 Bathrooms, 2 sofa beds, 2 car garage, WiFi, & more

This townhouse is in a great location for year-round activities in the Salt Lake area. Situated half way between Big and Little Cottonwood Canyons at 'The Oaks at Wasatch', you can be at any one of four ski resorts within minutes (9-16 miles) of leaving the house. Venture a little further (27-33 miles) and you can ski Park City, The Canyons, and Deer Valley. Need equipment? Several ski rental stores are just a few blocks away.

Just minutes away there are a number of hiking and biking trails as well as several areas designated for rock-climbing and bouldering. The house is located adjacent to one of the best road-bike routes in the valley. There is a locally owned bike shop about a mile from the house (they rent bikes).

The Cottonwood Recreation Center is just over a mile away. With an Olympic sized ice rink open year round, indoor and outdoor pools, racquetball (and Walleyball) courts, as well as a cardio room and weight room, the whole family can enjoy themselves. The rec center offers several classes, from Spin, to Yoga and Zumba.

Bair Park (locally known as Firehouse Park) is just yards away, with a playground, pavilion, tennis courts, and a large grass area suitable for a football or soccer game. We provide balls for your use. Just across the street is a bus stop for skiers making it even easier to get to the resorts, and allows each person in your group to set their own ski schedule.

The freeway is a couple of miles away with easy access, making downtown Salt Lake City and Park City accessible within 20 to 30 minutes. Several people stay in this area during the Sundance Film Festival, Oktoberfest, conferences, various Sports tournaments as well other sporting events. With a grocery store just a few blocks away and several restaurants and pubs within a couple of miles, this townhouse makes for easy living - even for a short-term visitor. As with any city of 1 million, the Salt Lake Valley has a lot to offer year round: from concerts and theater to shopping and recreation.

About Breck

We both moved to Salt Lake in 1997 and met a few months later. Neither of us planned to stay more then a couple of years. Easy access to the mountains and year round enjoyment of the outdoors, however, has made this our home. Fifteen years later it is difficult to consider living in another city. We made our home 'between the canyons' so we could be close to the mountains. It is easy to pick the kids up from school and hit the slopes or go for a hike. The diversity of the state's environs from the hot deserts of Southern Utah to the alpine tundra in the high mountains makes for wonderful weekend excursions.

Breck purchased this townhome in 2012

Why Breck chose Salt Lake City

Our Townhouse was completely remodeled in 2012 with new furniture throughout. The kitchen cabinets, appliances, and washer and dryer are all new as well. The 55 inch TV in the living room streams Netflix and HuluPlus movies, as do the TVs in two of the three bedrooms. Several other internet apps are also available on the TV, along with the regular Cable TV channels. Wireless internet makes it easy to use any computers or internet devices you may bring. There is an acoustic guitar in the living room for your enjoyment and if you are not musically inclined, A book exchange is maintained by and for all guests. An assortment of games appropriate for all ages will help fill in any downtime.

In addition to the three queen beds in the bedrooms, there are two sofa sleepers. The kitchen is fully stocked, including a coffee maker, waffle maker, wine cooler, and crock-pot among other amenities. We even include a couple of our favorite cookbooks for you to use during your stay. Unlike most vacation homes, we have decorated our home with original artwork by local artists. This personalized touch offers an original setting which is very comfortable.

What makes this townhome unique

As an owner managed property we have a vested interest in making your stay the best it can be. We have lived in the area since 1997 and would be happy to help you locate the resources you need to make your stay the best it can be. Of course if you need any additional assistance you are always welcome to call, email, or text us.

Beautiful home. It was exactly as described.

  • 5 of 5

It was a wonderful home and great location. Breck was fair and easy to work with. He was very accommodating to make our stay the best it could be. We loved it all!

Great condo for family vacation!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay at this condo and we are happy that it was available for our visit. It is a neat, tidy and comfortable condo.

Our kids loved having bedrooms separate to each other and parents, a bathroom to themselves and they loved having stairs to climb (a novelty for them!).

The kitchen is neatly arranged and well stocked for basic meal preparation. The laundry facilities are great to keep everyone laundered for our vacation. The lounge is comfortable and central for everyone. The beds are super comfy!

The location is great - a park just around the corner, close to local grocery store (Smith's) and easy to get on the freeways to get around the city.

Highly recommend this condo and hope to be able to stay again for our next visit.

Lots of space, has everything you need, good central location for lots of activities.

  • 4 of 5

This ended up being perfect for our group of five. There were great hiking trails nearby and we enjoyed having a grill so we didn't have to eat out all the time. It is five levels so the bottom two tend to be a bit cooler than the other three but there was also a separate ac unit for the top floor bedroom, plus it usually got pretty cool at night. We really enjoyed having space to spread out and relax after a busy day of activities. Having bedrooms on different levels gave us privacy without having to pay for three separate hotel rooms.

Some minor cosmetic things like some gaps in the flooring (heat/weather shrinking?) and a deck that needs resurfacing keep me from giving five stars but they didn't really interfere with our enjoyment of the place. The homeowner was helpful and let us check in early, which was much appreciated since we had an early morning flight and ended up taking a long nap that afternoon.

Very good place to stay.

  • 4 of 5

We really did enjoy the appartment. The windows are large, so a lot of daylight everywhere. The bedrooms are on three different levels, good for intimacy or people who like to sleep in. There is a lot of stairs to go to each of the four levels. The appartment have a patio facing the mountain that gives you privacy ( one day we had two deers in the backyard ).

The kitchen is well equipped and the basic dry food are provided by the owner ( flour-sugar-salt-pepper...) A little improvement on the cleanliness would be good, specially in the kitchen.

Car: recommended

Located between Big and Little Cottonwood Canyons this townhouse is just 9 miles from Snowbird, and within 16 miles of three more great resorts (Alta, Solitude, and Brighton). Park City is only 30 miles away, making this a great, inexpensive place to stay during the Sundance Film Festival. In addition to skiing, the Wasatch Mountains offer terrific hiking and mountain biking within minutes. This townhouse is located on one of the best road bike routes in the valley. A large recreation center is less than 2 miles away, with an Olympic sized ice rink, indoor and outdoor pools, racquetball (and Walleyball) courts, and weight and Cardio rooms among other features.

When you are ready for a relaxing break from the day's adventures you can dine at one of several great restaurants (some nationally acclaimed) within a couple of miles. If you are looking for a bit more nightlife there are several bars and pubs close by as well as brew-pubs. Salt Lake has a great music scene with numerous concert venues, including several free, out-door concerts throughout the summer. Of course there are also several theater productions and movie theaters.
