About the property

Chalet, 5 Bedrooms, 4 Baths, (Sleeps 11)

The Big Cottonwood Cabin, minutes from Solitude and Brighton ski resorts in the heart of the famous Wasatch Range, and a short drive to Alta and Snowbird, is a unique hand-crafted log home built in 1997 by a Master Craftsman. Furnishings include many original rustic log creations, each one a piece of art. Four bedrooms have queen beds, and the fifth has a bunk bed with full bed on bottom and twin bed on top.

The 3500 square foot cabin is carefully and tastefully decorated with each room having its own special ambiance. Enjoy the great room with its massive riverstone wood burning fireplace, or the game room with its own massive wood burning fireplace and attached full bar, or just relax in the private outdoor six person Jacuzzi.

The Smoke-Free Cabin has magnificent views of Solitude, Silver Fork and Big Cottonwood, and with it's southerly exposure, sunny afternoons will draw you to the exterior deck after a long day of hiking, skiing or just playing in the snow, where, if not careful, you can get sunburned even in the middle of winter.

No expense has been spared in the creation of this magnificent view log home, less than one mile to Solitude, two miles to Brighton and 45 minutes to Alta and Snowbird. Enjoy a vacation you will never forget in first class accomodations.

About The Owner

Taking a break during a bike ride arount Antelope Island

The Owner purchased this chalet in 2005

Why The Owner chose Salt Lake City

We've been coming to the Wasatch Range for over 40 years and finally found the perfect cabin in the perfect spot. World class skiing, incredible mountain biking, hiking, wild flowers, moose, deer and all sorts of forest and mountain creatures, plus just feeling like you're in heaven on earth. We get to experience mountain living from a luxurious 5 bedroom, 4 bath authentic log cabin with every possible amenity.

Big Cottonwood Cabin is a Big Hit !

  • 5 of 5

Everything about our experience at Big Cottonwood Cabin and with the owner and care taker was excellent. The cabin was just as we expected, well appointed, impeccably clean and the location is great. Kathy was always available to answer questions. Thank you for letting us share your property for a brief time .... the memories will be with our family forever.

Amazing house very close to Solitude and Brighton

  • 5 of 5

We were a group of 6 guys on our annual ski trip. We always pick a different destination and this is our 6th trip. Our group all agreed that this house was the best of any we have stayed. Loved the hot tub and sauna, and the great room was a perfect size for us to hangout after a day of skiing. The two fireplaces were awesome and were used frequently. We stayed in each night to cook dinner and found the kitchen had everything we needed. The bedrooms were great as were the bathrooms. Highly recommend.

Wonderful winter wonderland

  • 5 of 5

The Disman's home is everything you could want in a winter experience. The log cabin has such a great "feel" and the giant fireplaces are perfect. Lots of space for everyone with all you need throughout the home and in the kitchen. Each walk in and around the cabin revealed something new and exciting. We got almost 2 feet of snow the 5 days we were there so had to break out the snowblower, which worked perfectly. The Views are spectacular and you feel as if you're in a snowbound wonderland. Skied 3 mountains and did some snowshoeing. Having a ski rental shop within walking distance was great. We loved the outdoor hot tub and sauna - - - steamy and comforting!! We went to Park City one day to check it out, and were glad to get back to the solitude and beauty of Big Cottonwood. We stayed over Christmas 2017 - - - The Smith's from Roswell, GA

Amazing cabin!

  • 5 of 5

Thank you! My family and I had a great time during our stay at your cabin! The cabin itself is so beautiful and unique. The surrounding area was great, including the hiking trail right out the front door. Everything was clean and in tip-top shape. We wished we could have stayed longer!

Great place for a mini family reunion

  • 5 of 5

We rented this 5 bedroom chalet for a family get together. The rooms were clean and spacious and the beds were comfortable. The kitchen was well-equipted and easy to work in. All the rooms were comfortable and well decorated especially the family room which had a beautiful view across the canyon to the Solitude ski area.We visited in the early summer so skiing was over but we used this home for sightseeing in the Salt Lake City area and hiking up out of the canyons into the mountains and this was a great location to do this. Mark was kind, accommodating and easy to work with. We would definitely recommend staying at this home. We'd come back in a heartbeat.

Snowshoe or ski in the national forest out the front door. Solitude and Brighton ski areas are minutes away. Snowfall averages over 500 inches of the lightest champagne powder in the U.S. Summertime is hiking and mountain biking at its finest and wildflower season is July/August.
