Property type cabin

About the property

5 Bedrooms, 3 Bathrooms, Sleeps 14, Built in 2014

Bearkat Cabin is a mountain vacation destination built in 2014. Located 2 miles west of the Homestead resort. It is just 3 1/2 miles from downtown Midway and Ridley's Deli. This mountain retreat has 3000 ft.² for your family's enjoyment. Sitting in a canyon with quiet surroundings and an open view of Wasatch Mountain State Park you will enjoy the solitude of this beautiful Rocky Mountain vacation getaway.

The cabin has five bedrooms and three 3/4 bathrooms, one on each level. Each bedroom has a queen-size bed. The full basement has a futon that opens into a double bed. All bed and bath linens are provided and there are extra blankets, sheets and pillows. In the walkout downstairs are cable TV with 100 channels, a pool table and an area to play games. A second TV is on the main floor. Large decks on the east and west side offer a place to relax or barbecue. The laundry room has washer and dryer. It offers plenty of parking for vehicles or toys (The long driveway can hold at least 8 vehicles).

There are numerous restaurants in the area but when you want to stay in and cook the kitchen is well-equipped with all the basic cooking utensils and pans, a refrigerator, microwave oven, toaster, and double oven. After you are done you can use the dishwasher or do the dishes in the double sink.

It is a one hour drive to Salt Lake City and LDS Church Museums and Genealogy Library. BYU is thirty miles away. Park City's historic main street for shopping, outlet stores and Olympic Park are just over the hill. Three golf courses are within a few miles: my favorite is Wasatch Mountain State Park with 36 holes of challenging terrain. Utah ski resorts provide recreation opportunities in winter or summer. Hike to Stewart Falls, Cascade Springs or Silver Lake to name a few destinations. Water recreation is abundant: rent a boat or jet ski at nearby Deer Creek State Park or Jordanelle Reservoir, fish the Provo River or start with a class on fly fishing in Heber City.

We do not rent the cabin from December 1 to March 20 as the roads are not plowed.

Beautiful cabin

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying in this beautiful cabin. Very clean and big enough for our whole family. Also a great library to read books from and a lot of fun games and puzzles. We will definitely come back!

What a wonderful place to stay!! We came for a family reunion and absolutely loved it!

  • 5 of 5

This beautiful cabin was such a wonderful place to stay! The trees outside made the experience like we were camping. Inside there was plenty of room for our family. The amenities and the decor were so modern and up-to-date. The cabin is lots bigger than I thought it would be. The owners were wonderful to work with. Our family plans to stay here again. I highly recommend this place!

Love This Log Home!

  • 5 of 5

This wonderful log home was perfectly situated for all our activities in and around the Heber Valley and Park City. It had all the amenities we needed, and we couldn't have asked for a more gracious and easily accessible landlord, Barrie Nielson. The home is on a beautiful spot, surrounded by forest, and although there were other cabins close by, we felt very secluded and quiet - except for our excited grandchildren who had fun exploring the surrounding area! Although the home does not have internet service, we were able to use our Sprint hot spot without problems. We recommend it highly, and thank the Nielson's for making our family reunion such a cherished memory!!

Peaceful family retreat

  • 4 of 5

Our extended family of 10 came to Midway to join other family members for a reunion near our cousin's vacation home here. We selected Bearkat Cabin as it was in close proximity to our weekend gatherings. The cabin is clean, spacious, well-arranged and has plenty of most things you need for a long weekend of relaxing with family and meal preparation. There are 2 big screen TVs and the downstairs rec room is great for kids. The front porch swing is delightful and washer/dryer a big plus, too. The biggest drawbacks are spotty cell phone signals, no wifi and the fairly long gravel drive to the cabin. Do bring your own mugs if you use them as we could locate only 2.

All the comforts of home in awesome setting

  • 5 of 5

Our family had an amazing family reunion in this beautiful clean cabin. There were two bedrooms upstairs, a bedroom on the main floor, and two bedrooms in the lower level. There was a bunk bed in one of the rooms downstairs. There was a bathroom on every level,

The cabin is so inviting with a porch and swing in the front where we spent the evenings enjoying the cool breeze.

There were plenty of games, movies and magazines. The kitchen was well-stocked with dishes, utensils, pans etc. The A/C was nice when the afternoons were hot. We loved the lower level where the pool table was.

The owners paid attention to details to decorate with beautiful rugs, quilts on the beds, pictures etc.

The cabin was surrounded by hills covered with trees.

We had a very nice stay (wish it was longer).

Great family reunion cabin

  • 5 of 5

The cabin was large enough for all our kids and grand kids (about 17 including the newborns). The five bedrooms are adequately sized and nicely appointed to be comfortable. The futon bed in the rec room also came in handy. The cabin is newer, so everything was in good shape: the appliances are newer and work well. We especially liked having a good-sized washer and dryer. The cabin is located at about 6500ft above sea level so the temperature was five to eight degrees cooler than down in the valley, but the air conditioning was appreciated nonetheless. There was plenty of parking for our six vehicles. The cabin has other cabins nearby, but it was set apart from the others so it felt like we were alone on the mountain much of the time. All in all we had a great vacation and respite spot.

The best thing about this cabin is the feeling of solitude. You drive through a mountain subdivision to get to the cabin. Once you pull down the driveway and go inside you feel that you are high in the mountains and removed from everything.
