Where to Stay in Park City, Utah
Relax in the hot tubs of these mansions on the way back from the slopes.
Nuzzled, warm and toasty, between the Park City Mountain Resort and the Deer Valley Resort, Park City makes for a charming destination year-round. In summer, you’ll find yourself wandering aimlessly (well, do keep track of where you are, we wouldn’t want you to get lost) through the mountainous nature trails. Then, as winter descends and snow covers the area, take to the slopes among the ghosts of Olympians from times past. The area is known for nurturing numerous athletes from the Winter Olympics, and hey, maybe your little ones will be the next big ski stars. Probably not, but it’s worth putting tremendous pressure on them for the next decade or two, just in case.
One of the best things about the city (if we say so ourselves) is that it’s totally full of spectacular Plum Guide homes. Oh, and they have the Sundance Film Festival, which is the pre-eminent indie movie hub in the world. So, you might just share some of those ski slopes with huge film stars. Don’t worry, they’re just as scared of you as you are of them. Especially the way you ski. Here's where to stay in Park City, Utah.
A huge house in the mountains
Fitting up to 18 guests, if you choose this home you’re already winning, because it suggests you’ve got at least 17 friends. This enormous mansion lies just to the east of the Park City centre, its fireplace, widescreen TV and gorgeous furniture making for an idyllic spot to watch the snow fall outside. The majestic villa even has an outdoor hot tub (as do many of our homes here) that lights up spectacularly as night falls, allowing you to peer out at the snow from the warmth and comfort of the frothing water. Get going on the billiard table and make use of the rustic kitchen amenities to cook up a meal for your 17 other guests. Good luck.
A cosy family home near the city centre
This home is a little nearer the city centre, and has a totally different design to Sunnyside Up. It fits up to four guests, so it’s a fair bit more compact. It’d be perfect for a family trip, its green wooden (hence the name of the home) façade making up a rustic design that fits uniformly with much of the rest of the street. Enjoy the spacious bedrooms with ensuite bathrooms, making for absolute comfort after a day on the slopes. Speaking of which, the house is just a short walk from the ski lift, plus whiskey taverns and old-world bars, such as No Name Saloon and Spur Bar & Grill.
An alpine-inspired mansion
We’ve gone back to big, with this 5-bedroom mansion that sleeps up to 12 extremely lucky and happy people. (Disclaimer: you don’t have to be lucky or happy to stay here). It has a fun interior, with bright colours mixed with rustic wooden designs and antique furniture. It feels warm and welcoming, and has a games room that’ll keep the whole family entertained all day (as if the ski slopes weren’t enough). Rest your weary legs in the outdoor hot tub and relax by the fireplace, before embarking on a hike through the forest trails.
A historic miner's home
An English take on Mi Casa es Su Casa, What’s Mine Is Yours has a welcoming and hospitable message. It’s actually a historic miner’s home (renovated with modern décor and deluxe amenities), with its eclectic range of intriguing furnishings among its standout features. If you're part of a large group looking into where to stay in Park City Utah, this huge edifice fits up to 19 guests and has six bathrooms. The gourmet kitchen, games room and private cinema make this an idyllic home in which to stay. Rest your muscles in the external hot tub and get those bubbles going.
A stunning modern cabin
At the western end of Park City, right by the slopes, lies the resplendent modern cabin of Walnut Scones. Its interior emits a warm and fuzzy feeling, lined with wooden walls and furnishings, and a gorgeous stone fireplace. Wander along the terrace that wraps around one side of the house and enjoy the vistas of the mountains in the distance. Head outside for a spot of horse-riding, skiing or even river-rafting to make the most of the beautiful outdoors. Go skiing nearby, then wrap up warm and cosy around the stone hearth at night.
