About the property

5 Bedroom, 5 Bathroom, Sleeps 13

If you're debating between the convenience of staying downtown and the comfort of a spacious historic home? Look no further! This is the historic Pugsley Manor home. It was built nearly a century and a half ago and it still has all of its original charm for you to enjoy. Restored to its original state in the living areas, yet it has very modern touches in all of the right places.

Located in the Downtown Marmalade District - Salt Lake's colorful historic district - this large manor home boasts all of the amenities that you'd expect from a 5-star hotel: high-speed wifi, an attentive staff, and even personal hygiene amenities. You can live like it's your own home by taking advantage of the fully-equipped kitchen and the large formal dining room, while enjoying the fact that each bedroom has its own bathroom. There is a small children's park just a few doors down from the home. The neighborhood is inviting and very quiet; you won't even realize that you're less than a mile from the skyscrapers of downtown.

Pugsley Manor comes fully stocked with all linens & towels, and has all of the little things that you won't need to carry with you: hair dryers, irons, toiletries, etc. We will also provide you with a guide that covers everything about the home, the neighborhood, and our favorite attractions & restaurants in Salt Lake City.

If you're here for the convention center, this home is just 3 and a half blocks away and has a bus route that will take you there also. If you're here to ski, you can enjoy the convenience of a short 33-minute drive to get to the slopes.

READ THIS DISCLAIMER: This is an old house. It is on the historic registry, so there are a lot of things about it that are original and you might not like that. The kitchen is ultra-modern, but otherwise it has that old feeling to it and some people will walk in and instantly thing it's "dirty", even if it's probably the cleanest house they've ever stepped foot in. If you want a new white-washed McMansion with no charm, this is not it. It's old and creaky with original oak floors, ornate windows, papered walls, etc.

About Cami

I am not a big rental agency that will treat you like a number. I own some extra homes that I rent out & I'll treat you like my guests. I take so much more pride in my guests' satisfaction than any large rental agency does. If ANYTHING is not perfect with your stay, call me and I will make it right!

Cami purchased this house in 1987

Why Cami chose Salt Lake City

This house has a very rich history and it's located in the historic Downtown Marmalade District. It's a quiet neighborhood, but it's located near several downtown shops and restaurants.

What makes this house unique

This home has so much to offer, from the location to the historical charm of the house and the neighborhood. You'll enjoy the gigantic covered front porch, the fenced-in yard, and the small kids park just a few doors down.

very pleasant stay

  • 5 of 5

We came to SLC for the fencing summer nationals and stayed in the Pugsley House. It was a nice large house with five private bedrooms and a bathroom for each. large kitchen made cooking a joy. New AC unit upstairs kept it pretty cool as we were there during a heatwave. James, the manager was very helpful and knows a lot about river kayaking and fly fishing!

The House had a lot of personality and we had some great times in it. Great overall stay!

Charming Historic House in Quiet Neighborhood...

  • 5 of 5

We loved this large charming home with all it's rooms. It was so nice to have a bathroom with each bedroom!!! Loved sitting and visiting in the parlor, playing games on the large table and putting puzzles together on the perfect size table in the kitchen area.

Perfect home for our Sister's Reunion <3

Fun house!

  • 5 of 5

This was perfect for our large family!

We would laugh at the creaky floors and loved trying to guess about the house's former lives. We decided that at one point in it's long life it must have been a rooming house or subdivided into 4 or 5 apartments. It is on the historic house register because it's former owner was a major player in securing women's right to vote in the state of Utah. She was a state senator in the early 1900's.

The 5 bathrooms were a big selling point. The kitchen is updated and great. The managers were easy to contact and willing to help. Our kids loved walking down the street a few houses to a darling little park. The neighbors were very friendly as well. This was much more fun than we would have had at a ski condo we were looking at that was more expensive!
