About Liz and Earl Ashurst

I am an lllinois girl who came to love the mountains after meeting my love at BYU (a Utah boy) lo many years ago. It has been his dream to own a piece of a mountain all our married life. We have moved around quite a bit and now reside in Texas. Our 6 children (and 19 grandchildren) are scattered around the country. We have had to rent a facility to all be together. We have worked hard to make this home a place where we can all be together. With the ''bunk house' finished above the garage, we finally have that.

Liz and Earl Ashurst purchased this house in 2015

Why Liz and Earl Ashurst chose Wallsburg

Driving up Provo Canyon one day with my son who lives in Midway, I asked him to turn off at the sign that said Wallsburg. We had driven past it many times and wondered what was there. We were amazed at this wonderful valley so close to so much and yet so off the beaten path. We zeroed in on an amazing A-frame nestled up on the bench. My husband and I decided it would be the perfect gathering spot our family and are anxious to share it with others. With main house that sleeps 17 and (in summer and Fall) the unheated bunkhouse that sleeps 15 as an add on, a group of 32 can be easily accommodated.

What makes this house unique

The location is what hooked us on it. Close to Provo and Orem in one direction, almost across the road from Deer Creek Reservoir and the Provo River; minutes from ski resorts and the Midway/Heber attractions.

We love the views from the 2 story 'A' window, the log staircase in the great room and the huge deck.

Most of all we love hearing our granchildren giggling under the quilts in the bunk beds after a family meal at the amazing tables my husband made!

This is a very comfortable house to enjoy year round. Go to the reservoir in the summer, enjoy snow sports in the winter or just stay 'home' and relax. It is not a luxury house but well supplied and maintained. The house is NOT air conditioned but if you open up the windows when the sun goes down, it will cool off quickly on a hot day and you will find yourself closing the windows before long. The bunkhouse which sleeps another 15 is available at an additional fee during months when heating is not required. Call for details if you are interested in renting it.

A very family friendly cabin with a great kitchen!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at this cabin over MLK Jr. weekend. The cabin, linens, and property were very clean and well kept. The living spaces were large enough for our group of 14 to feel comfortable and not cramped. There were plenty of toys, games, books, and dvds to keep us entertained. Unfortunately there was no snow, but we still had a great time and only left once to go into Heber. The kitchen is really well stocked! Plenty of dishes, spices, and appliances to cook for a crowd. We ran into a small problem with the outside garbages being full from a previous group, but the owner was very responsive and promptly helped us solve the problem.

  • 5 of 5

This cabin was perfect for our girls retreat. We loved the long kitchen tables with benches where we could all sit and play games. The kitchen was beautiful and had everything we needed. The beds were comfortable and warm with the room heaters. The only problem we had was getting the wood pellet stove to turn on. It didn’t turn on until the day we were leaving. So it was a little chilly in the basement family room. But, we had a wonderful time staying here. It was a great place to get away. We enjoyed heading over to soldier hollow one day for some sledding and then back to the cabin for more fun! I highly recommend it!

Great place for family togetherness

  • 5 of 5

Loved the mountain breezes in the morning and evening in this picturesque valley. The kitchen was a great place for preparing meals for our crowd. We were delighted that there was table space for all and if some wanted to eat outside that could be done, too. Playing in the water at Deer Creek was only ten minutes away--which made it not so close that vigilance for little ones had to be constant as in a place located right on the water.

Nice property

  • 4 of 5

Great place for a family get away. Very nice, usable kitchen with great tables for feeding a large group. Very close to deer creek and some canyon areas. I suggest no more than 4 couples as the 5th bedroom is more for sleeping a group full of kids. No airconditioning, it was warm in the afternoon, but cooled down in the evening. I was a little disappointed that using the internet cost extra - we made sure not to use it.

Owner's Response: Internet service is a problem in our rural location. There is no good option. Good news: Verizon now has "unlimited" internet service, meaning they don't charge more for high usage. However they slow it down after the first 10 gigabytes each month, so be kind to your fellow renters and keep usage down, please. This is the very best we can do.

Cousins Galore!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great family reunion. There were seven preschool children who were quite happy in the child friendly home. The children and adults all enjoyed themselves. Food was easily served with plenty of kitchen table space. All the computers were set up in the kitchen for gaming among both adults and teens. We could serve food without having them cleaned up. The kids could go in and out of the house without parents having to supervise closely. One person watching was enough. The fence was very helpful. Children who only see cousins via screens had a great time playing together and riding the Heber Creeper. The bedrooms also worked out great so each family could retreat when the business became too much.
