This is the home of H. Tracy Hall, the physical chemist who invented the first reproducible process for making diamonds in the laboratory while working at General Electric way back in the fifties. Dr. Hall's invention made an incalculable fortune for G.E. His reward? A $10. savings bond. Needless to say, Dr. Hall was disheartened by the lack of credit he received and landed himself a professorship at Brigham Young University in Provo, where he taught chemistry and conducted high pressure research. But there's much more to this story than diamonds. You can learn more about Tracy and his family when you visit this 'GEM' of a home!
From the moment you walk into this home, you will feel a warm and inviting spirit about it. Many of our Guests say; 'It's even better than we expected!'. It's interesting to look at the many historical pictures placed about the house that tell the story of H Tracy Hall the chemist, and his wife & children that were raised in the home.
Reading was an important part of life for the Hall family, so our guests will find several book-cases throughout the home filled with interesting books that once belonged to Tracy (for all you science lovers) and some of Ida Rose's collectables right along side them.
The south wall in the formal living room is made up of huge glass windows and doors that offer a breathtaking view of the lower gardens, the Wasatch Mountains and BYU Campus. The well kept wooden floors are original to the home, as are the mahogany built in's you will find in almost every room. The Kitchen has a new 'old style' refrigerator which is really fun.
New guests are always excited to find a generous 'welcome basket' on the kitchen table that is stuffed with assorted treats and other fun surprises. An assortment of drinks, snacks & breakfast items can also be found in the refrigerator & cupboards. This is the perfectplace for guests who want a homey vacation experience in a residential neighborhood where they can mingle with the locals, but want the added benefit of a VERY convenient location.
Please note: This Vacation Rental Home along with the others we manage are currently booked out through December 15th, 2016. Unfortunately we won't be able to accomodate you unless you request travel dates after that. Our Vacation Rental Home is usually booked 3-6 months out, so please think ahead, we'd love to serve you in the future.
Zoning in this neighborhood restricts us from renting the home for less than 30 days. You can reserve the home anyway as long as you pay the advertised monthly fee and sign a lodging agreement that's 30 days long. Even though the reservation is for 30 days, you can check-out anytime you please and the city is fine with that as long as we don't re-rent the home to anyone else until your lodging agreement expires.
Compare and run the numbers; our rates are so reasonable that our monthly rate is usually less than our competitors nightly rate for two or three weeks. Remember, we are always happy to answer any questions you might have about this home and the other's we manage!
