About the property

Townhouse, 4 Bedrooms, 3.5 Bathrooms, 1 sofa beds, 2 car garage, WiFi, & more

New Listing! 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 2014

Why Breck chose Cottonwood Heights

In 2012 we bought the townhouse next door (VRBO# 434074). We have enjoyed renting this and decided to buy this house when it became available.

This townhouse was repainted and decorated with new furniture throughout. The refrigerator 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 the basement family room and the master bedroom. 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. 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 four queen beds in the bedrooms, there is a sofa sleeper and an air mattress available. The kitchen is fully stocked, including a coffee maker, waffle maker, 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.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We loved our stay, and will definitely look to you in the future.

The spray wand at the kitchen sink stuck on, we we're able to unstick it, but it may need some attention.

Thank you so much for providing such a clean, lovely, and well stocked home away. We really enjoyed our time.

Good location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed 5 nights here. Everything was just as it's described on the website. We had an issue with the kitchen sink leaking and he fixed it promptly. Though I do understand the reasoning behind the AC not being able to go below 72, renters should be informed about it. The upstairs bedrooms stay a tad on the warm side at night. It wouldn't of changed our minds about staying there. The owner is really great about getting back to you . The beds were all comfy. The shower had great pressure. Loved having a washer and dryer to use all week. The kitchen is well stocked with pots, pans , a waffle maker and many other items. We did see a deer one evening go right by the patio. I would stay here again if we go back to that area. This place is in good location for visiting the Salt Lake City area as well as Park City. Definitely recommend staying here!

Very comfortable, everything you need, close to everything

  • 5 of 5

We arrived late on a Friday night and everything was as promised. Beautiful layout and very comfortable for our family of four and my uncle traveling with us. Grocery store within 5 min. open until midnight. Very convenient. Skied Solitude and Snowbird. Both very accessible from condo. Ski rentals and lift tickets were both easy to do ahead of time as everything is so close. Propane tank was out on grill but we let Breck know and he responded right away willing to run over and take care of. Hot tub and steam shower felt great after skiing. Breck was very nice and pleasant through the whole rental process. We will be back!!

Great Ski Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

My guests and I had a great time. Breck was very easy going, helpful and his home is as comfortable as it gets. We would definitely consider returning and recommend Breck’s home as your next vacation rental.

Terrific spacious house perfect for family ski trip

  • 5 of 5

Our party of 8 made up of two families with kids enjoyed our stay here. Fully stocked kitchen and bathrooms. Flexible sleeping for larger group. Nicely heated hot tub. Very clean. House layout and amenities made our ski trip so convenient and comfortable. 2-car garage helped keep our cars snow free during the recent storm. It’s very close to the mountain road taking you to Alta and Snowbird. Supermarkets and restaurants also close by. Thank you Breck for a great stay!

Spacious and clean

  • 5 of 5

We have rented this same condominium for the past three years. Our group consists of three couples. We all find it to be very clean and spacious. The owner leaves plenty of condiments for your use. It is centrally located between both Big and Little Cottonwood making it easy to drive up to Alta, Snowbird, Solitude and Brighton. One night during our stay we usually drive into Park City for dinner. The owner is great with communicating. I've hesitated over the past three years in writing a review for the selfish reason of not wanting anyone to know about this gem.

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.
