We have a home available for rent in the Old Town area of Park City, Utah. It’s ideal for two families traveling together: 2 large master suites with king beds, 2 rooms with twin-over-full bunk beds, and 2 living spaces — a living room with a fireplace on the top floor, and a game room with a pool table and home theatre system on the bottom floor.
In the heart of Old Town
With a newly remodeled kitchen and bathrooms in 2008, and ALL new furnishings in 2012, this large and luxurious home is right in the heart of Old Town. A short 4-block walk takes you to Main Street for dinner or shopping, and it’s just as close to the base of Park City Mountain Resort for skiing or snowboarding in the winter. The base of Deer Valley is less than 2 miles away, and The Canyons is only about 4 miles.
1008 Empire in the snow
We picked our home in part because it is in the heart of what makes Park City so great. Our map page shows you how close the house is to everything. For example, to get to the free Park City bus, you just walk 3 blocks down 10th Street, to Park Avenue (and by being close to the bus route but not on it, there are no noisy buses that pass by our home during the evening). We wanted to ski at Deer Valley, and found it was an easy walk down the stairs along 10th Street; the bus came within 3 minutes; and it took us all the way to Snow Park Lodge at the base of Deer Valley within about 7 minutes.
Spacious and comfortable for two families
The other reason is because it is very large for Old Town. With two distinct master bedroom suites, two distinct living areas (one on the top floor, and the other on the bottom), and two additional bedrooms with bunkbeds, you can enjoy traveling with another family, or with your extended family, without feeling crowded. To see how our house is laid out, here is a diagram.
For 10 years, we have rented beautiful VRBO homes in Park City/Deer Valley. Often even large homes have only one master bedroom, and when two families travel together, that can be awkward. It’s not an issue here. Each of our master bedrooms is large, with a beautifully finished private bathroom. We also knew we wanted a home with two separate living spaces. Kids can play pool, board games or watch movies in the game room, while the adults enjoy the living room.
Beautifully furnished in 2012
Everything in our home is brand new in 2012, and we have tried to think of everything to make your trip as enjoyable and relaxing as possible. The dining table comfortably seats 8, and bar stools for another 2. The living room and gameroom each have 60 inch HDTV theatre systems with Blu-ray players. The master bedrooms each have 46 inch HDTVs, and speaker systems to charge and listen to your iPhones or iPods. We provide a laser printer and scanner, and it’s easy to connect to it via WiFi; whether you have some work that unfortunately will not wait, or you just want to print your boarding pass, you’re all set.
There is a pool table in the gameroom, along with a wet bar and mini-fridge. We love to be outside all day when we’re in Park City, but there is no shortage of fun things to enjoy at home after a day of skiing, snowboarding, or mountain biking.
And we keep making it better
Here are just a few examples: For winter 2013, we added a four-person hot tub on a brand new deck just outside the game room. In 2015, we added a water softener for the entire house. In 2016, we replaced our furnace, and added a whole-home humidifier to that heating system.
A few additional things to note
- If you’d like your kitchen pre-stocked with food, we are happy to arrange that for you for a reasonable service charge.
- This is a 100% non-smoking home.
- We offer our home to adults and to families, with and without children. We are unable to accommodate college students, and the house cannot be used for parties.
- We love pets, but regret that no animals are allowed in our home.
When we decided to buy this home, our goal was to create the place we want to stay in, and are proud to have our friends visit. We think you’ll love it as much as we do.
