Overview

About the property

Minutes to Mountains, Resorts, University of Utah, Downtown

This 600-square-foot studio sits on a secluded, private 2/3-acre lot on the east bench uplands of Salt Lake City. Five minutes to the foothills and mountains, Wasatch National Forest, University of Utah, and to the freeway system that gets you to the ski resorts (including Park City, Deer Valley, Alta, Snowbird and several more) in thirty minutes. Ten to fifteen minutes puts you in downtown Salt Lake City. Quite easily accessible via major bus and transit routes. We can point you to the near-by 'locals only' ski pass discount outlets.

This area of Salt Lake City was originally cultivated with extensive fruit orchards over 100 years ago. A half-dozen of these grand old trees remain on our property. Such privacy and lot size is unusual in Salt Lake City, especially in our area, so close to the urban amenities like the University of Utah, downtown, parks, and the local freeway and highway system.

The unique architectural design of the studio, sitting as it is in a shaded 'rural-like' yet urban setting, lends itself to extended periods of contemplation and creative thoughtfulness, and our guests often find themselves just relaxing here rather than leaving to meet friends for skiing or hiking!

The hot tub is steps away from the front door, yet secluded and private, ready for your exclusive use during your stay. How better to relax after a full day of skiing, surrounded by snow and solitude under a star-studded, crisp, clear Western sky? (In the interest of your safety, please remember that children under five are not allowed in the hot tub, and those children under sixteen must be supervised by an adult.)

The bedroom is comfortable, with a queen bed and bunk beds, which work well for kids or teenagers (yet comfortable for adults as well). This studio easily accommodates from one to four people, and we have on occasion made room for two more (mostly younger visitors, during ski season!) on the couch and an inflatable bed.

The kitchen is fully equipped (including bowls, utensils, measuring cups, mixing bowls, knife set, pot set, etc.) with plenty of pantry space and a full-sized refrigerator.

Wifi internet with fast broadband fiber-optic connection. cable TV.

It is literally a three-minute walk to the local transit bus line, with connections to light rail, commuter rail, airport, and ski bus hubs. Campus- bound or heading to the the University of Utah hospitals? Take a ten-minute bus ride straight north to the University of Utah. Going to Park City? Either hop on Interstate 80 (five minutes away) for a half-hour drive, or catch the commuter bus and be there in forty minutes.

There are no laundry facilities on-site but a clean, well-maintained laundromat is just a ten-minute walk away. Within five minutes are multiple restaurants, several coffee shops, and several traditional and organic markets.

This property has a dedicated, private driveway for guests that will hold several cars and/or RV.

About Richard Howe

The owners have lived in Salt Lake City for over thirty years, and have traveled, skied, hiked, packed, and backpacked all over the American West, its national forests and national parks. We maintain an extensive library and map collection covering local, U.S., and Western U.S. topics, and would be happy to help you formulate and fine-tune your travel plans while in this area.

Richard Howe purchased this studio in 1993

Why Richard Howe chose Salt Lake City

It's close to everything. The 100-year-old main house (not the studio, which is at the rear of the lot) was one of the first in Salt Lake City's 'east bench' area, which was originally cultivated with extensive fruit orchards. A half-dozen of these grand old trees remain on our property. Guests of ours have, over the years, raved about the seclusion and peacefulness. Such privacy and lot size is unusual in Salt Lake City, especially in our area, so close to the urban amenities like the U of Utah, downtown, parks, and the local freeway and highway system.

Quaint and Peaceful

  • 5 of 5

I have had a few Airbnb and VRBO experiences and they have all been slightly disappointing...except for this one! In fact, the Secluded Sugarhouse Studio was even better than I expected. The house is VERY clean and well-maintained. The owners take pride in their work and are friendly and attentive. I live in a city and am inundated with noisy cars and firetrucks everyday. I loved being able to open up the blinds every morning and sit with my coffee or tea (provided by the owners BTW along with a basket of snacks!) and look out at the beautiful, spacious yard.

great place and great location

Richard and Janet were wonderful. It was a great relaxing time, and everything we could possibly need was taken care of. They even left treats for our dogs!

Amazing

  • 5 of 5

I love the Sugarhouse Studio. This was my 3rd time staying there and I now call it my home in Salt Lake City. Host Richard and Janet are wonderful. Very clean and well stocked with everything you need to make meals. The view out the window into their beautiful garden is very relaxing. The neighborhood is quiet. A great place to relax and unwind but close to restaurants, shopping and mountains. I come to visit my son who lives in SLC and this provides accommodations much better than I would find in a hotel. I will definitely be staying here again.

The studio is very quite and peaceful. My dogs had the yard (fenced in). This stay came after packing up our home before our move out of state. We were able to relax in a stressful situation. Thank you Richard and Janet. We will recommend you peaceful cottage to friends and family!
