Overview

About the property

4 Bedrooms, 1.5 Bathrooms, Sleeps 12

This breathtaking and immaculately preserved craftsman home is located just minutes walk from the heart of Salt Lake. Enjoy the tranquility of a tree lined historic neighborhood with the convenience and freedom to walk to your downtown destination.

The Space

This beautifully preserved craftsman home, built in the early 1900's is part of Salt Lake's historic Marmalade district. The home itself boasts all the original architectural details that made it unique when it was first erected and that now make it a breathtaking piece of Salt Lake's architectural history. All of the original woodwork line the walls, the original fireplace remains untouched, many of the light fixtures are original, and the boiler heated antique bronze radiators remain intact and surprisingly efficient. Enjoy a taste of another time when you stay in this beautiful home with its formal dinning room, parlor, antique wooden staircase, and all the beauty of its unmatched architectural craftsman design.

On the main floor the home is equipped with a front porch and a porch swing, a large formal entryway, a formal dining room, a parlor that has been converted into a TV room with a sleeper sofa, a small powder room half bath, and a spacious kitchen with back sun room and back porch. Up a beautifully preserved wooden staircase there is a large full bathroom and four separate bedrooms.

All the beds are brand new and excellent quality mattresses. Each bed is protected with a freshly laundered protect-a-bed waterproof mattress cover.

Guest Access

Guests will have access to the entire upper two levels of the home including front and back porch. Basement is booked out separately.

Interaction with Guests

We are available to help with anything our guests require. We respond immediately should any questions or needs arise, but we respect the privacy of our guests while they are staying and enjoying the property.

The Neighborhood

Salt Lake City's Marmalade District was named so because early street names reflected the fruit-bearing plants and trees imported and planted there by its early residents. Settled in the early days of Salt Lake City, the Marmalade District is distinguished from other neighborhoods by steep, narrow, angular streets, mature landscaping and a surprising variety of vintage residential buildings. Within a single one-block area are almost as many styles of architecture as exist in the entire Avenues Historic District. Moreover, many buildings are considered to be among Utah's best examples of certain types of architecture.

Today, the neighborhood stands as a modest, well-preserved, monument to the skill, taste, and resourcefulness of its pioneer inhabitants.

Getting Around

The home is just a 15 minute walk from downtown Salt Lake City. The local UTA Trax station is just blocks away. This locations is unbelievably ideal!

Quaint century old house in the heart of downtown Salt Lake City

  • 5 of 5

We had a terrific time on our trip to Salt Lake City. We were skiing the local mountains with the Mountain Collective Pass. The house is centrally located within 40 minutes of at least half a dozen world class ski resorts. The house itself was very cozy and had old world charm. Downstairs there is large dining room, a half bathroom and a kitchen with all the necessities. The living room area downstairs has a huge flat screen tv with cable. Upstairs are four spacious bedrooms and a full bathroom. There is only one shower, so we had to alternate, but never ran out of hot water. The hosts were great communicators before our arrival, but they had everything set up so well, with clear instructions, so we had no need to contact them during our stay. The house itself is decorated with old style furniture and paintings on the walls. The TV area has a huge copper medalion on the ceiling. The beds were quite comfortable, and although I initially had some worries about the old style heat pump and radiator system, we were kept cozy warm despite the frigid temperatures outside.

A lovely house with room for everyone!

  • 5 of 5

Several girlfriends and I were in SLC for a workshop. We rented this lovely house, that had plenty of beds/rooms for everyone. Everything was just as the Rhea had described, clean, well-maintained and quaint - absolutely no complaints! Thank you!

A Journey Back in Time

  • 5 of 5

The family really enjoyed staying in this beautiful old home! The décoré of the home was lovely and peaceful. I chose this location because it was walking distance to downtown and literally minutes away from Salt Palace, in which my Graduation from WGU was held!! We had a fabulous time walking everywhere and enjoyed visiting the state capitol! What took us by surprise was that the state capitol can be seen from the master bedroom all beautifully lit up at night! We all had a great time in Salt Lake and plan to stay here in the near future again. Such a charming home.

Sweet Old House

We really enjoyed staying in this beautiful old house with lots of character. Everything was decorated marvelously and there were plenty of amenities. It was also a nice walk to dinner on the hill. We look forward to going back in the near future.
