This beautiful 3000 Square Foot town home is perfectly situated at the base of the Wasatch Mountains in a small comfortable community. You cannot get any closer to the resorts of Snowbird or Alta without staying at one of the hotels at the mountain. As outdoor enthusiast ourselves we purchased this home because of its proximity to all the outdoor treasures the area has to offer for all of the seasons.

Just minutes from the best skiing in Utah, this home sits in the foothills of the Wasatch Mountain range at the mouth of Little Cottonwood Canyon which holds 2 of the best ski resorts in N. America. Snowbird and Alta resorts are just 8 miles from the house and are nominated on a regular basis as best resorts by many of the major ski publications. With an average of 600 inches of snow per year there is always plenty of great skiing no matter if you like to ski groomers or powder. Solitude and Brighton are also only 15 miles away and offer a great variety of terrain.

The house boasts 2 family rooms, 2 kitchens 2 wood burning fireplaces and 5 bedrooms and is spread out on 2 floors so everyone has plenty of room to roam no matter if you are with a large group of friends or multiple families traveling together. With bedding arraignments situated to accommodate up to 12 people you are sure to find this house perfect for your group.

The first floor of the home has the kitchen, dining room, 1st family room, outside deck and fireplace. The master bedroom is located on this floor and has a king bed and full private bath. There is also a bunk room on the first floor with a twin over full bunk bed and a second full bathroom. The downstairs has 3 bedrooms and 1 bathroom. First bedroom has a king bed, second bedroom has another twin over full bunk bed and the 3rd bedroom has 2 full size beds in it. The second kitchen and family room are also located on this floor and the family room has a wood burning fireplace. A door off of the family room leads to the backyard where there is a 6 person hot tub perfect for those after ski breaks to sooth those muscles or a great place to sit and watch the snow fall in the evening. The house has a 2 car garage and there is parking in the driveway for 2 additional cars. Both kitchens are fully equipped to handle all of your cooking needs from that important morning breakfast before heading to the slopes to a gourmet dinner for the entire gang. Kids want something different for dinner the second kitchen is perfect for that! Propane BBQ is on the back deck for all of your outdoor grilling needs.

The house has 2 50” HD TV’s in both family rooms and another 40” in the master bedroom with cable TV with 150 channels and 2 DVD players. The house has high speed WiFi available throughout the house perfect for streaming movies on any of your devices.

There are 2 grocery stores 2 miles from the house plus a Whole Foods Market about 6 miles away. Plenty of great restaurants just a few miles away, movie theater, Starbucks, hospital, and Downtown Salt Lake city is about 20 miles if you want to go and explore the area.

Why Forest Williams chose Cottonwood Heights

We love Utah so much and this is the 2nd property we have bought in this community. It is the closest you can get to the best skiing in the country without staying on the mountain. This house was perfect for us as we like to entertain friends and family while we are in Utah on vacation

Great base camp

  • 5 of 5

This was a great base camp for 8 people skiing Utah. Can't beat the location and there is plenty of space. Two living rooms, two kitchens a great deck with a gas grill and a 3 person hot tub. Plenty of towels and tools to cook with. Overall a great place to stay.

Great location and responsive hosts

  • 4 of 5

Loved the location and house worked well. There are some maintenance issues that really need to be worked on but those are easy fixes. The furnace and water heaters are REALLY loud and seem so you need earplugs. There are 4 bathrooms but only 1 shower can be running as it goes hot and cold if anyone else touches the water. Dining table can only seat 8 people so you will need to be okay with splitting up a group of more than 8 or eat in shifts.

All in all it worked really well and the price was right.

great location for skiing

  • 4 of 5

close to the slopes, restaurants, etc.

Good for our two families with three teens. Good internet, TV, kitchen.

Three downstairs rooms have one bathroom.

Hot tub was nice after a day of skiing. two car garage. quiet little community.

I'd say the house was just a little bit down at it's heels compared to some places we've stayed at but perfect for a ski getaway.

Perfect Adventure Base

  • 5 of 5

This house is everything we were looking for for our Utah trip. The location could not be better - right at the mouth of Little Cottonwood (heaven!), ease of access to freeway, and simple commute to the airport. The home is nice and updated, spacious with completely separate living and cooking areas on each floor, perfect for a multi family vacation. Plenty of beds and rooms for everyone to have their own space, and nice living areas to hang out together. We were delighted with our stay and will be back next time!
