About Bill Bessette

I am a retired engineer/construction executive who continues to have a passion for skiing and all the ambiance that accompanies it. During the ski season, the townhome is occupied by me, friends and family for a considerable amount of the time .

Bill Bessette purchased this townhome in 2011

Why Bill Bessette chose Salt Lake City

The Wasatch Mountains undeniably have some of the best and most diverse skiing in North America. The property is as close as you can get to these ski resorts without the expense of being there.

What makes this townhome unique

Only a half hour drive from the Salt Lake City International Airport, The Oaks at Wasatch is a community mix of year round residents and seasonal skiing and recreational people. The UTA Ski Bus to Snowbird/Alta stop at the entrance making snowy day travel to and from the resorts easy and safe.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Dear Bill,

Thank you for allowing my family and me to rent your home.

Everyone enjoyed the house and loved the location.

Skiing was pretty awesome on most days!

Hopefully you will hear from me next year and will be willing to rent to us in 2015.

Super comfortable - great location!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this property for five nights and absolutely loved every minute. It is super comfortable and easily can accommodate 10 as advertised. The two living rooms are nice for bigger crowds and there is plenty of room for eating. The place is located about halfway between Little Cottonwood and Big Cottonwood canyons, which host the best skiing in the Salt Lake Area. We were at Brightwood and Alta (furthest spots in both canyons) within 25 minutes of leaving the house. If you don't want to drive, the Alta bus stops within a few steps of the front door and the park and ride for Solitude and Brighton is just down the street. Besides the convenience of the mountains, the grocery store is within .5 miles and there are lots of restaurants close by. I will stay here again for sure!

Clean, spacious condo in perfect location for Alta/Snowbird

  • 5 of 5

This rental had everything we needed for our ski vacation. We skied three days at Alta and the condo was in the perfect location at the base of the mountain. It was an easy drive up and down with the development right off the main road. The grocery store is conveniently just 2 minutes away. With several great dining and ski rental options nearby, we couldn't have had a better location. The condo was clean with plenty of towels for bathrooms as well as after using the hot tub. The kitchen was well stocked with all utensils and pans we needed. Beautiful counter and stainless appliances. The provision of ample paper products was nice as well as laundry detergent and even spices & coffe filters made our stay easier. The condo seemed bigger in person than in pictures with plenty of room for everyone to spread out and feel comfortable. Bill was easy to work with and accommodating. We would definitely recommend this condo, especially for a ski vacation!!

Great Getaway Townhouse

  • 5 of 5

Spacious, clean, well maintained and had plenty of the comforts of home! Property descriptions were accurate. Had contact information if we had problems but everything was as stated - never needed to call anyone. Perfect location. You could be anywhere you wanted to be in the Salt Lake City Area in 30 minutes. Was in town for a family reunion. Visited Salt Lake City, Park City and spent time in the mountains. Will absolutely stay here again. Hoping to ski next time!!

Great stay

  • 5 of 5

This is a great condo. Ideal for a family mountain vacation. For those who like to ski, the location is perfect, with 4 ski areas nearby (Alta, Snowbird, Solitude and Brighton). Park City is not very far away. I enjoyed my stay here.
