About the property

Cozy Historic Home, 2 Br/ 1 Ba. Perfect Location & Newly Renovated!

Casa Blu is an utterly unique vacation cabin that puts you just minutes from every activity on your Park City vacation agenda.

Just 4 doors up from Grappa Italian restaurant/Wasatch Brew Pub, 2 blocks from the Egyptian Theater (center of the Sundance Film Festival) and PCMR's Town Ski Lift and lockers are three blocks away, to which you can catch the free Main Street trolly right outside our front door.

All other Historic Main attractions (shops, restaurants and galleries) begin just feet from Casa Blu- no car needed! And Park City's FREE shuttle means the rest of the area's attractions (Deer Valley, The Canyons and Kimball Junction) are minutes away, too.

Inside, we've hung old photographs of the cabin and Park City in their past lives, and incorporated antique details like the mirror in the bathroom, which is made from a recycled, 100-year-old tin ceiling.

Of course, we've also outfitted Casa Blu to suit the needs of a modern vacationer. A fully equipped kitchen provides a user-friendly space to cook a meal. A washer and dryer in the cottage are perfect for soggy ski clothes. And entertainment options like high-speed Internet and flat-screen TVs mean you can cozy up with a good movie in the land of good movies (Sundance, of course). There's even an electronic fireplace to take the cozy factor up another notch!

In a house this compact, every detail counts. The comfortable and modern design scheme is carried throughout, and the open floorplan and big windows flood the space with natural light.

Believe it or not, this adorable cabin has room for two bedrooms, and sleeps 5 guests (or 4 adults, if no children).

One bedroom provides a queen-sized bed wrapped in bright linens and luxury sheets. The other is great for kids, thanks to its bunk bed system with a twin on top and full bed on the bottom.

Its cozy front porch faces a park area that's great for dogs (Casa Blu welcomes dogs!) and kids. The porch is also looks Eastward, great for watching the sunrise on our new modern chairs, with a good cup of joe in hand (complimentary selection of coffee and hot cocoa are offered, of course).

Altogether, you won't find another home in Park City like this one. Come and see our Park City gem for yourself! We look forward to sharing this charming piece of history with you.

*Also has AC now for the summers!

About Kris

Just like you, I prefer booking a vacation rental over a hotel. I love the detail owners put into their homes and learning why their home and city charms them. I try hard to nod at PC's past, while providing modern amenities and personal favorites that will add to your trip to provide you the best vacation rental.

I am originally from Minnesota but am now a Park City resident and absolutely love it here! I spend my free time being outside and enjoying everything that draws tourists; amazing trails, slopes, food, music, art, people and climate.

I'm a lover of great food, friends, my two rambunctious kids and knowing I gave my guests a vacation to remember forever.

Why Kris chose Old Town

I was immediately drawn to, okay obsessed with, Casa Blu because it's so cute! It's at the top of Main (just around the road bend at Grappa so it feels private), surrounded by the other homes that were founded with Park City.

Casa Blu was actually built in 1860, one of the first in town (the first mine was claimed in 1868 for reference). It's a piece of history and the Mayor once lived across the street!

The size is great for couples, small families/groups that are looking for a home (not one excessive in size or budget) over a condo or hotel.

The location is perfect- you will be minutes from world-class skiing/snowboarding. Including, Deer Valley, Park City Mountain Resort, The Canyons, Snowbird, Alta and Brighton.

During the summer, this property is also central to all PC activities (music, biking, restaurants, Farmers Markets, etc).

On a personal note: I love history, art and the charming warmth special places exude. I got the warm fuzzy feeling every Sunday, for 3 months, when my kids and I walked by this little blue delight on our weekend Main Street stroll. This Minor's Cottage is certainly charming but is also a piece of the dynamic history Park City offers.

Our renovations (being completed Oct-Nov, 2013) will be truthful to this property's rustic heritage but will also add a touch of elegance and art. We hope you enjoy it!

What makes this cabin unique

Being a resident, I often give recommendations on where to eat, what to do, daycare and any other details you might want/need a local's insight on. I try to include a lot of this on Casa Blu's website to help even those not staying with us :)

Adorable, Convenient and Comfortable Cottage!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I absolutely loved our stay at Casa Blu this past weekend. It was our first time visiting Park City and this location was PERFECT. We walked everywhere all weekend (including on trails above PC where we saw a moose!) and even caught the convenient trolley once or twice. The cottage was well equipped, the bed was super comfy as was the couch, AND we loved having full TV channel access and WIFI. We also appreciated Kris' suggestions for activities and restaurants -- the casablu website was also helpful. We would definitely recommend Casa Blu to anyone who is visiting Park City -- you can't go wrong with this rental!!

Cozy cottage, close to town!

Very comfortable, cozy home close to Park City shops and restaurants. It has everything you'll need, whether you are just passing through or staying the week. Loved the laundry and morning coffee on the front porch!

Casa Blu is perfectly located, comfortable, clean and well decorated and the Owner is Fabulous.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Casa Blu once last year in February and this year in January and the owner, Kris helped us enormously - going above and beyond each time. She helped us secure a babysitter, hard to get tickets to a performance, etc. When we stayed to ski - we were able to look out the window and see when the trolley was coming - staying warm til the last second. And we never had to get in our car during our ski holiday.

Perfect spot in Park City

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at Casa Blu in Park City. It is a charming and cozy little cottage, perfectly located for easy access to all the ski mountains and for walking to town. The cottage is very clean and comfortable and the owner was great to deal with. We will definitely be back.

Exactly what we were hoping for!

  • 5 of 5

Casa Blu is adorable, cozy and extremely well appointed. Historic and quaint outside, and inside it was modern and spotless. Kris was great to work with - we were in desperate need of escaping our home renovation projects in Salt Lake City but didn't want to stay in a hotel. Kris replied to my inquiry on Friday night within minutes, and by Saturday afternoon we were enjoying beautiful Park City! Even our two dogs were made to feel welcome - she left a sheet to protect the couch, toys, and food and water bowls. The location was fantastic - right at the top of Main Street, so we walked everywhere - and directly across from Casa Blu is a park that supplies poop bags for the dogs. Thanks, Kris, for being so accommodating. We would love to come back!
