About the property

House, 4 Bedrooms, 3 Baths (Sleeps 10)

You'll want to snuggle up by the fireplace of this spacious 2,700+ square foot home that's as beautiful as its mountain views!

Professionally decorated and meticulously maintained, our first floor offers you a gourmet kitchen, dining room, and 2 bedrooms including the master bedroom/bath suite with king-sized bed and jetted tub and a queen bedroom and full bath. Upstairs features 2 more bedrooms (1 queen; 2 twin beds (bunks) and a twin trundle/convertible king) and a full bath, plus EVERYTHING you need for fun -- a game room with Foosball and poker/bumper pool tables as well as a large family room complete with a 40in LCD TV, satellite, surround sound, an iPod docking station, and a tuner with AM/FM radio. So whether it's a ski adventure or summer vacation, a holiday trip, wedding weekend, or family reunion, our luxurious get-away is the perfect place for you to feel right at home!

Why the Owner Chose Eden: Just 45 minutes north of the airport in Salt Lake City, our home is easy to get to but you feel like you've been transported to another world once you arrive. Unlike any other resort in Utah, we enjoy activities during all four seasons due to our location at Wolf Creek Resort. Situated on a golf course, overlooking Pineview Reservoir, and in the midst of the rugged terrain that makes up Powder Mountain Resort, Snowbasin Resort, and Wolf Mountain, we are literally just minutes away from whatever activity we wish to choose. Just take your pick...golfing, swimming, boating, jet-skiing, fishing, hiking, biking, downhill skiing, snowboarding, x-country skiing or snowshoeing, or even hot air ballooning!

The Unique Benefits at this House: Not every home in our area has the level of luxury or the unobstructed views that we offer. From the dining room, living room, master bedroom, and family room, you will never tire of looking at majestic mountains that are simply awesome or the vast beauty of unbelievable blue skies.

About Owner

Alar and Kathleen, Eden, UT

Back in March of 2004 after a business trip to Salt Lake City, Alar discovered what they say about Utah is true. On a 60 degree day, he strapped on some skis and ventured out to ski what the locals deemed 'lousy' conditions. Alar had never skied out west before, and he found conditions to be quite the opposite. Utah does, indeed, have the GREATEST snow on Earth!

For the next several years, we brought our family out for a mid-February vacation. Alar and our two teenage sons would pick a different mountain resort each morning and head out to meet the challenges of the double black diamonds, while Kathleen would put on her snowshoes and enjoy the serenity of the x-country trails in the canyons.

When we found the breath-taking beauty of the valley of Eden, we knew we'd discovered paradise. Powder Mountain and its most skiable acres in the US was just 6 miles away and the luxury of Snowbasin Resort was a mere 8 miles in the opposite direction. We purchase our lovely home in the spring of 2008 and settled right in!

What we've learned over the past year is how much we love this spot in every season of the year. We enjoyed skiing, boarding, and snowshoeing in the winter over Christmas; spring skiing in March; swimming in Pineview Reservoir after a long, hot hike in the summer; and just looking at the mountains from our living room and enjoying the brilliant autumn foliage.

Each time we head back to the east coast, we find ourselves wishing we could stay in this beautiful retreat all the time...and maybe some day, we will! In the meanwhile, it is our greatest wish for you to spend time here and enjoy it for us.

Clean and Comfortable!!!

  • 5 of 5

Thank you, Kathleen, for sharing your exceptionally clean and comfortable home. We enjoyed spending Christmas and New Year’s Eve curled up by the fire! Sadly, the snow wasn’t great (it’s a very unusual year). So, we only skied two days. However, we came up with other activities.

My favorite thing about the house was the beautiful view out the back! I also loved the large round table, which was wonderful for family meals and conversation. We appreciated the comfortable mattresses and very well stocked kitchen (It was so nice to have extra paper towels, garbage bags, dishwashing liquid, etc.). We have rented houses in the same area and had to purchase all of those things.

Kathleen and the property manager were both wonderful to work with. The property manager was very responsive and sent someone right away to take care of our special requests.

The home theater upstairs is very nice, but we found that we all wanted to be downstairs together by the fire. So, the only thing I would add to the house is a larger flat screen TV downstairs for family movies at the end of a ski day.

We love this peaceful area (especially the lack of crowded slopes) and hope to rent the house again!!

Paradise in Eden!

  • 5 of 5

We had a perfect stay at this beautiful home! Everything was clean, comfortable, and very welcoming. The owner, Kathleen, was a delight to work with. The location was ideal and we had such a restful time with our whole family. Thanks so much for sharing your piece of heaven!

Owner's Response: Thanks, Nola! You and Dave were a pleasure to work with, too, and I am so glad our home lived up to your expectations. The house is such a great place to gather the family...we have created so many wonderful memories there with our family (including a wedding at Snowbasin!), and we love it when other families are able to do the same. The Valley is beautiful year round and has much to offer no matter what the season, but I've heard the fall colors this year have been breathtaking!

Very Nice Place

  • 4 of 5

Very nice, comfortable place to stay. Some of the furnishings are past their prime, especially the beat up downstairs couch, but otherwise it is a nice place. There is a shag rug, and I like shag rugs but some people don't. You don't see wall to wall shag these days. There is no hot tub, which is the biggest negative but there is a big one across the street.

Owner's Response: Hi Steve, So glad to hear you found the house comfortable. Both the house and furnishings were new when we purchased in 2008. We have been making regular upgrades and will certainly keep your comments in mind for future updates. Don't you just love the view of the mountains and Pineview Reservoir from the Clubhouse hot tub?

Perfect ski house!

  • 5 of 5

Our second stay at this great place! The home had a roomy floorplan and lots of living space for our group of 10. A quick zip up to Powder Mountain and Snowbasin. The clubhouse and big hot tub were just one driveway away. Kathleen was friendly and prompt with responses. Highly recommend this beautiful home and community for snow-covered beauty and skiing!
