Overview

About the property

4 bed 3 bath, large master suite. Running creek in the back and mountain views

Mirror Lake Retreat is the perfect year-round destination to enjoy both a little solitude and easy access to activities and conveniences in the surrounding area. This well-appointed retrofitted barn-style home includes all of the modern amenities - wifi, DirecTV, Netflix, and xbox gaming, but if you would rather disconnect from it all there is a wood stove in the comfortable family room with a very sleepable pull-out Crate and Barrel couch. Luxury mattresses and bedding ensure a peaceful night's sleep.

The upstairs is a private master suite with its own balcony overlooking the mountains. The master bathroom includes a spacious two-head walk-in shower and imperial footed bathtub. The bunk bed room sleeps 6 comfortably.

Summer: The property has large fire-pit in the back near by a running creek for storytelling and s'mores. When it's lights out you are presented with a deep view of the starry sky and crisp mountain air, perfect for camping on-site or for the more adventurous, at one of the many campgrounds just minutes up the road. The on-property creek contains plenty of trout, but for those who want a sure thing the Fun Family Fishing Trout Farm is walking distance. They will provide rods and even clean the fish for you while you wait. The entertainment area includes a BBQ for grilling them up for a healthy meal, and the enclosed yard allows the kids to run around without having to worry about them wandering down to the river or the road unattended. There are plenty of summer activities in the area, including dozens of hiking and biking trails, canoeing, kayaking, boating and water skiing at the nearby Jordanelle reservoir. Head the other way and you're on the scenic drive to to Mirror Lake, but don't forget to stop at the waterfall!

Winter: This is snowmobiling and snowshoeing country, but several Ski resorts, including the Canyons, Park City and Deer Valley are less than 20 minutes away. The well plowed roads all winter ensure you are never snowed in. The place is just off the highway, ensuring year-round hassle-free accessibility.

Year-round: Run across the street to the Samak Smokehouse whenever you get a hankering for the best smoked Jerky and cheeses on the planet. (We've tried quite a few). This place also carries high-quality organics. Our personal favorites are the homemade caramels and pomegranate licorice. Jen and Dave will certainly take care of you and also have canoes and snowshoes for rent.

And that's not all, just up the street is The Notch Pub, serving up fish and chips and delicious home made burgers and staging live entertainment year-round.

Quaint Kamas Main street is only 10 minutes away, where you can find melt-in-your mouth pizzas, homeskillet breakfasts, and turn-it-upside-down malts.

After all that snacking, hit up the rec-center to swim a few laps, float the lazy river, zip around the water slide, play a round of racquetball or climb the rock wall.

If exercise isn't your idea of a vacation, how about shopping? Park City main street and the Outlets are just a short drive away...

These are some of the many reasons we love our Mirror Lake Retreat. We hope you do too.

Notes from review feedback:

1. The cabin has been updated with a new water heating system and backup unit to ensure no further issues.

2. There is no air conditioning in this unit as it is not necessary. The cabin is nestled in a sheltered canyon which is often 10 degrees or more cooler than the surrounding area and channels a cool breeze in the summer. We have found that there are only a handful of nights a year when it feels warm, and overhead and portable fans are available for these times.

About Krista Stevens

We are an international family who has lived across the globe. We have had many people open their doors to us, and are excited to share our home with others.

Krista Stevens purchased this house in 2010

Why Krista Stevens chose Utah

We are world travelers who bought the Mirror Lake Retreat as a place we can always go home to. After a lot of time searching through Tahoe and Park City, we finally found 'the one' We loved that it was so central to so many things, convenient yet remote enough to feel like we were truly getting away from it all.

What makes this house unique

The idea of a retrofitted barn wasn't what we had in mind for a cabin, but when we actually saw it inside and out, we fell in love with its unique quality, solid craftsmanship, and the firepit and stream! Our family reunions have been pretty fun the past couple of years. We understand that every group has a different idea of what a vacation should be. Actually, sometimes every person in a group has a different idea of what a vacation should be, and this place can cater to all of them.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Just wanted to drop a note to say we had an incredible time at the cabin.

Our stay was amazing. It snowed, the kids got to play in the snow, ski,

and snow board, and we all got to snowmobile. The cabin is beautiful. We

had plenty of room and it was clean and had all the amenities we needed.



My wife and I have already talked about returning next year

Everything we needed!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay here for our family reunion. We had a great time together and staying in this spacious home made our stay comfortable. The location was perfect. Far enough to be secluded but close enough for last minute grocery store runs. The house had everything we needed; towels, extra blankets and bedding, board games and more. The owners are amazing and accommodating. Last minute we decided to stay one night and they allowed us to stay that extra night. We will definitely be staying here again!

Awesome vacation!!!

  • 5 of 5

Perfect for our family! Very nice home with plenty of room for our entire crew. Definitely a place we all want to come back to!

The location is perfect! We could easily get into the uintas for hiking, fishing, and canoeing, but were close to kamas for grocery stores and dinning out. We spent a full day at the kamas rec center and a day at jordanelle where we rented sea doos and paddle boards.

The grassy backyard was nice for playing, eating, and sleeping in the hammocks we brought. The fire pit and bbq were well used and it was wonderful to have the stream and mountain right by the backyard. We ended up having family pictures taken while we were there and they turned out great!

Temperatures are nice and cool. It was so nice to be away from the city, yet close enough for those that had to work a couple of days in salt lake to commute.

The owner has the place well stocked with books, games, puzzles, and supplies for cooking for the kitchen, bbq, and fire pit. We just can't say enough about how wonderful this property is!

Awesome Retreat

  • 5 of 5

We had an awesome youth retreat at this property. The layout was absolutely perfect for our needs. It is a beautiful property and the photos online do not do it justice. It blew our expectations out of the water. Krista, the manager was fantastic and very attentive. I plan to return to again with my family and to host another retreat in the future.

Mirror Lake Retreat is located in a pristine mountain setting just minutes from the Uinta National Park yet convenient to Park City (15-20 min) skiing, shopping and pampering. It is an excellent year-round location for those who want to get out or just get away.

The renowned Samak Smokehouse is just across the street, providing easy access to excellent mountain treats. The Notch Pub is half a mile away, with delicious food, fun and live entertainment. Fishing is possible in the river on-property, but for a sure thing there is a hatchery less than half a mile away, who will provide a guaranteed catch for the kids. Dozens of hiking trails and snowmobile sites around the property provide endless options for outdoor recreation. The Jordanelle lake, 10 minutes away, is a popular destination for boating and water skiing. The scenic drive up Mirror Lake highway take you past waterfalls, rivers and of course, the scenic Mirror Lake itself.

In town there is a fully equipped recreation center offering daily passes with water slides, a climbing wall, racquetball and more. Local restaurants provide the best comfort food around.
