These apartments and kitted-out condos let you explore Park City, Utah, whether you’re here to hit up one of the largest ski resorts in North America and the host site of the 2002 Winter Olympics or head out for hiking and mountain biking in summer. Here’s our pick of the best vacation rentals in the area – bookable on Culture Trip.
During winter, the slopes of Park City attract outdoor enthusiasts and powder fans to Park City Mountain Resort and Deer Valley Resort. But the action doesn’t stop there. Thanks to the thrills of the ride-rich adventure park in summer, you’ll find this mountain town is the place to be for an adrenaline-fueled vacation. That’s not to say you can’t spoil yourself, too, with a private home-away-from-home apartment where you can sprawl out with your ski gear and rest run-weary limbs in hot tubs before curling up beside the fire.
Need a lift of the spirits and a lift to the slopes? Abode on Lower Main will cover you from head to toe in a blizzard of bliss. As it’s only a short walk from the Town Lift, you can step out of your slippers and into your skis in seconds. Cozy up in one of two bedrooms the way you do at home – underneath a warm, heavy blanket.
The Abode in the Village is so charming and cozy that you’d think you were crashing at a Swiss ski resort. This two-bedroom apartment has hotel-style amenities with home-like furnishings. A kitchen, a sitting room and a dining area offer that laid-back living that will keep you cool even in the summer. Speaking of summertime, the outdoor pool and hot tub are the perfect locations to stargaze without venturing up to the top of the slopes. There’s also a gym.
First time in Park City? Spend a night at Park Avenue Townhomes, a short walk from Park City Mountain Resort. Some units can fit up to nine guests, meaning no one from your group will be left sleeping on the floor. They can try unrolling a sleeping bag on the patio if they long for the great outdoors, but the jacuzzi is a much more relaxing spot to lay back. The best are styled with vintage wooden snowshoes and pictures of pastoral mountain scenes, just in case you miss the slopes overnight.
Pretend Park City is your home town at your own Town Pointe condominium. As it’s an easy stroll to historic Main Street, you can pop into town for coffee and cocktails or fresh groceries for your kitchen. If you need a change of scenery, Park City Mountain Resort is within a 10-minute walk for whenever you feel like getting in touch with nature. Put your feet up, mix a drink and spend the evening by your fireplace until the crackling hearth lulls you to sleep.
Are these Park City condos the pinnacle of luxury? Yes. Here, four bedrooms are separated by a winding staircase, leading you from the game room to the kitchen and finally to the outdoor hot tub. Mountain views are in every direction, as are a half-dozen ski lifts, making it easy to get up to the fresh powder – that is, if the serene snowy views from the floor-to-ceiling windows in your condo don’t distract you.
That getaway you’ve been longing for is just beyond the door of this two-bedroom apartment. Pack that crime thriller so that you can leaf through its pages while you relax beside the pool. Feeling a chill creep up your spine as the night air drifts in? Sink into the leather couch by the fireplace and feel the hairs on the back of your neck calm down until the next plot twist.
As light and airy as high noon in Park City, this Stonebridge holiday home is excellent for a mountain vacation with the family. The thrilling 3,000ft (914m), luge-style Alpine Slide is about 2mi (3km) away, easily reached by the bicycle rental service offered. The 1,000-acre (405ha) estate of Red Pine Adventures, where you can ride horses in summer and snowmobiles in winter, is also close by, making it effortless to get breakfast cooked and the kids out the door. Get back home for a late supper, pop some popcorn and throw on a movie to complete the perfect family day.
The grand stone fireplace with a log mantel makes this double-height Badgerland holiday home a hit. Your kids will enjoy the huge HDTV that they’ll waste no time plugging their game system into. Let them play while you and your partner head to the private outdoor hot tub or primary bath’s jetted tub. The kids will be so busy bouncing on the long L-shaped couch that they won’t notice when you sneak down for a bottle of wine.
