Great area, great place!
A family reunion of 11 people filled this home. Laurie and Henry were very cordial. Appreciate all that they did to make us comfortable.The house is laid out nicely to accommodate many different situations. It was perfect for us. My two married boys their wives stayed downstairs in the bottom floor while the single guest was on the main floor, our other two couples were on the upstairs. We never had time to enjoy the jacuzi, but I know we would have had a great time. There were two kitchens which is a great idea because of all the people this home holds. We used both refrigerators. The grill was great for grilling and we used it a couple of times in our 4 day stay. Thanks again. Great stay.Sally - Boise, Idaho
Our family enjoyed our stay and appreciated the space and privacy available to each family. The owners were gracious, helpful and very responsive. The home was very clean and well stocked with linens and robes and the kitchen had everything needed to prepare meals for a large group.Mary - Yorba Linda, California
Awesome getaway for family!
We had a pleasant stay at the house for 2 weeks. Laurie & Henry Gonzales were very helpful and we felt at home during our vacation. The house was beautiful, fully furnished and perfect for large group. The view from the house was beathtaking and we manage to spot some of the deers and squirrels at the backyard. We will definitely wish to come back again and we 100% recommend this to anyone to come and stay at this house.Antiqa - Singapore
My husband and I met up with other family members to stay a long weekend to attend our nieces baptism. The house was extremely comfortable and the owner was very helpful and knowledgable. We would stay again because the home was clean, well stocked and had something for everyone to enjoy themselves.Sharron H. - United States
Perfect family getaway!
This home was perfect for our large family, plenty of comfy rooms and beds, very Clean and tasteful decor. Gorgeous setting on the side of the mtn with beautiful views of the city. Couldn't have been happier staying here and owners were very friendly and accomidating, 5 stars!Meleah - Ault, Colorado
Awesome Home & Magnificent Views
We had a mini family reunion here and had plenty of space for all of the adults/kids to spread out and enjoy themselves. We did a lot of cooking (family of chefs) so we were overjoyed by the cooking utensils, pots/pans, dishes etc. stocked in the oversized & open kitchen. You couldn't ask for a better location; just mere minutes from all you could need in Draper, and nestled on the mountainside that gives you postcard pictures of the city & valley views. Our hosts were very kind & helpful, and thoughtful about our stay. Highly recommend this beautiful, comfortable and family-oriented accommodation. We will definitely be back 🙂Hope T. -
I put together a ski trip for several friends. I was in constant contact with Henry who was always more than helpful. Upon arrival Laurie took me on a tour of the property and explained how everything works. The property was more than we could have asked for. Exceptionally clean and well appointed. There was plenty of room for everyone. If you are skiers you couldn't ask to be located more centrally - twenty minutes from several world class skiing resorts. Although the pictures show you that there are three levels, what you really can't see is that you are really getting two houses. The walk-in basement has three bedrooms, plus an extra bed in the family room PLUS a full kitchen. This was an outstanding set-up as some were early risers and took their coffee and breakfast in the morning downstairs. I use VRBO a lot and can honestly say this was one of the best, if not the best, properties we have stayed at.Michelle - Clovis, California
Great house for ski or summer vacation
Nestled up against the mountainside in Draper, this house is well thought out, well equipped and able to handle a crowd. Henry was fantastic getting us checked in and going over everything. Very thoughtfully stocked so all you'll need is food. We've rented places before where the kitchen utensils were sparse or the tv equipment malfunctioned... Not here. We would definitely rent here again if the timing and availability work for us next year's ski trip.Rex A. - United States
Family Vacation - Excellent House and Host!
We cannot say enough about how great our stay was here in Draper, UT. Henry was an excellent and attentive host. Even with tiny inconveniences like a later check-in than expected, Henry made up for with a late check-out time on our last day. On top of that, the house comes fully stocked with kitchen supplies, bedding, toiletries, etc. We were so happy with the number of bedrooms and space for all of our family members. Everyone had a king bed! The hot tub is huge, and the backyard leads into a good number of hiking and running trails for those interested. You can tell Henry is very invested in making his guests comfortable and checked in with us over our stay to ensure everything was to our liking. He even happily accommodated an extra night of stay for us even though he had no obligation to meet our request. Our family was extremely satisfied with the house and level of service and would highly recommend the listing to other guests looking for a large home conveniently located a short drive from famous ski resorts and downtown SLC.Jeannie & Family - Wewoka, Oklahoma
So easy to be here
This is a beautiful house in a beautiful setting. When our group left (we were a big group from North America, Europe, & Australia) we felt truly grateful to the owners. The house really felt like a home to us. We felt lucky to be able to enjoy it and glad we made the choice to book it. The gorgeous view, the yard, the hot tub, and the mountainside trails right above the house were fabulous. It was so much more human and natural than being lodged at a typical, noisy hotel. We received prompt and very friendly help with our questions and needs. These are kind people. If we’re ever in Utah again, we’ll be back to this haven.Chanti - Vancouver, British Columbia Canada
Awesome Vacation Rental!
We stayed at this rental house for seven days and were so happy with everything! The house is beautiful, well-maintained and fully stocked and equipped with everything you need (and more) so that you don't have to stress about traveling with all of those necessities. We loved the balconies with the beautiful views, all the Jacuzzi tubs and the very comfy beds. We had close to a dozen people in the house and hardly knew anyone else was there. Space is something you definitely have enough of! It was so peaceful and serene. It was also so close to the train station that we took that everyday to Salt Lake instead of driving. I've already recommended this house to people who are traveling to the area and would definitely stay here again if we came as a big group.Gabe and Tiffani - Corpus Christi, Texas
I came here with my business group and we absolutely loved the house! The view was amazing! We are definitely coming back!Mary - Baldwin Park California
The pictures in the listing do not do the property justice. When we arrived, looking at the outside it was wow. When we went inside, the WOW factor exploded. The house is HUGE. The bedrooms are all very nice and comfortable with full bedding. The house has lots of open space to hang out. 3 levels, high ceilings, well lit in the daytime and the nighttime lighting was great. LOTS of room does not do it justice. It is expansive and well maintained. It is in a great location close to everything, but in a quiet neighborhood backing onto the hills. It's a perfect getaway destination. When there, you feel like you are away and on your own. Yet, only 5 minutes from all the necessary shopping and 15 minutes from everything else. We were pleasantly surprised to see how well the house was stocked. It had two full kitchens stocked with dishes and cooking utensils. The upstairs kitchen with the breakfast bar was over the top. There was even a crock pot where our head cook (firefighter) brewed up a batch of fire house spaghetti sauce and meet balls. All we needed to get were the ingredients. There was even extra stock of some food stuffs in the pantry for our use as well as many spices in the cabinets. The bathrooms had big bottles of shampoo, conditioner, soap and towels. We appreciate the efforts that Henry and Laurie go to, to make our stay enjoyable. They are very accommodating and easy to work with. They could not have been more helpful and welcoming. It seems like they were always available to answer my calls or returned my call promptly. I have no hesitation in recommending this property. It is the Utah destination of choice for this civil servant and civilian motorcycle club. Thanks Henry and Laurie. Hope to see you again very soon.Gary - Darien, Ilinois
Great house for a big group
We had a trade show in SLC and this house fit our group comfortably for the week. The kitchen was a great space, hot tub was clean, and we were able to go trail running right out the back door.Anonymous -
This is the second year that we have chosen to stay at this home. We appreciate the efforts that Heny and Laurie go to, to make our stay enjoyable in their lovely home. We know the area well and find it perfect for sightseeing, actvities and restaurants. It is in a great location close to everything, but in a quiet neighborhood backing onto the hills. It's a perfect getaway destination.Steve - Indianapolis
I rented this house out for a family gathering, we had a nephew get married. Family came from all over...Seattle, Washington to South Carolina. When traveling, you pack light. We were pleasantly surprised to see how well the house was stocked. It had two full kitchens with the dishes and cooking utensils there. It even had a large crock pot! Just what I needed to serve a crowd. All we needed to bring... was the food. We had full bedding and even extra for the kids on the floor. The bathrooms had big bottles of shampoo and conditioner along with the customary soap and towels. The kids had just as much fun in the jetted tubs as the 10 person hot tub out back. Every room had a beautiful view. With so many trees and the backyard went into BLM land, you felt like you were in the country, not in a subdivision. We even had deer come into the backyard. I think if we would have left the backdoor open, they might even come in. They were so fun to see. Loved it! We will definitely come back. Bookmark this place !Happy 2 be Here - Idaho Falls, Idaho
Annual Ski trip
We have been lucky enough to reserve this property for the past 5 ski seasons. The house is maintained in excellent shape, well furnished, and has a wonderful view! The hot tub and neighborhood deer are a wonderful addition to the back yard. The owners communicate very well and have worked with us to ensure all of our needs are met. We recommend this property without reservation.Skiers - Orlando, Florida
Wonderful Place to Stay in Draper!!
This was the perfect house for our stay! We had 9 adults and 4 kids (from 1 yr old to 80!) visiting SLC for a family wedding. The house was incredibly spacious with three sizable living/TV/game room areas, plenty of dining space/seats, wrap-around porches, and a gorgeous backyard. There was plenty of space for everyone to be together or to have their own quiet space. (The pictures hardly to the space justice -- it's really huge!) We also enjoyed the easy access to the trail network for hiking and running, just above the house. Best of all Laurie and Henry are really wonderful to work with, and genuinely interested in making your stay comfortable!! We would definitely recommend this house as a great place to call home while on vacation or visiting the SLC area.Megan - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania
Best house in Utah
I stayed with 9 friends at the house, were we were continually surprised by how awesome it was. First, the house is HUGE. The bedrooms are all very nice, comfy, and lots of open space to hang out. With 10 people in the house, we never felt packed in or uncomfortable. Second, the house, kitchen, etc. were all extremely well stocked, all we had to go was buy food. Third, the location is really convenient. 5 minutes to the grocery store, 15 minutes to the mountain. Fourth, the 10-person! hot tub, with deer running about outside. Amazing. We will definitely stay again.Grant - New York, NY
Draper Family Reunion
I rented the home for our annual family reunion because our usual rental was unavailable, and I am so happy that I did. The home met and exceeded our expectations, and Henry and Laurie could not have been more helpful and welcoming. The home itself was well maintained and spacious and easily accommodated the twelve of us. The location is perfect as a jump off point for all activities whether in Salt Lake or in the mountains. Access to shopping, restaurants and attractions is also perfect. I have no hesitation in recommending this property.Steve - Indianapolis
We held our semi annual Division Meeting at this location. It is truly a beautiful home that met our needs well. The owners are exceptional hosts going out of their way to provide an easel stand and paper for our meeting. Additionally, they were their upon our arrival to acquaint us with all of their home's features. The WiFi service worked great and allowed us to Skype with other people not attending the meeting. The house has a well equipped kitchen where we prepared several meals; this really worked well for team building. This location also worked well, as there are nearby restaurants for dining out and grocery stores when more supplies were needed. Recreational activities, such as skiing, are close by.Al - Milwaukee, Wisconsin
Better than it looks in the pictures!
We were looking for a nice property in the Salt Lake area for 12 of us to stay in for my up coming wedding and found this gem. It was a little farther south than we were hoping for, but the house ended up being more than worth it. The sunsets were beautiful over the mountains, and we had more than enough room for all of us. Everyone who saw the property couldn't rave enough about how nice it was. The owner was very helpful and friendly. We would definitely recommend staying here if you have a large group.Coco - Olathe, Kansas
Great House For A Large Group!
This house is perfect. The pictures absolutely don't do it justice.It has amazing views with the amenities to match. It's great for large groups. Our group enjoyed the use of the hot tub, fooseball table, air hockey and the N64 with Mario Kart in the basement (awesome throwback). The kitchen with breakfast bar was perfect to cook and feed everyone. There are plenty of bathrooms and space for everyone. Laurie and Henry, the owners, were very accomdating and easy to work with. They returned every phone call promptly. The house and owners turned our vacation into our best trip ever. I highly recommend this house!Trevor - New Jersey
House was in very nice neighborhood, easy to access stores and easy access to main travel roads to airport and ski hills. Beautiful house well represented by the photo with owners on-site for check-in and great to work with. Had 9 adults in the house with lots of room to spare. My contacts for reservation and prior to arrival were handled great with check-in perfect. Wonderful stay and trip...hope to return. The driveway is alittle steep which in the winter with snow might be an issue without all-wheel drive. Hot tub and deer in the back yard were a nice bonus for the trip.Madtown - United States
Denver/Seattle ski rendezvous
We have a group of 7 couples who have been meeting up to ski at Alta most every winter for the past 28 years. Usually it varies between 6 and 10 who will make it any given year, but this year all 14 could come, and we needed a place large enough to accomodate the group. This property proved ideal! Having stayed up at the area or nearer the mouth of the canyon, Draper was a bit further south, but it took only 15 minutes to reach the Little Cottonwood Canyon entrance, and the drive was well worth it. The house is spacious, clean, and very well-equipped. The kitchen/dining/living room area provided ample gathering space for all 14 of us. We found ourselves wanting to stay in for meals (to either cook or get take-out) rather than try to go out to eat. It's an ideal spot for this type of reunion, and would work equally well for a gathering of 2-3 families.Eric and Amy - Seattle, Washington
house in mountains in Utah
Location and house is beautiful and perfect for a large family gathering. Owners were nice and helpful. Very clean and nice amenities. Owners went out of their way to make it a great visit. Close to Alta where we like to ski. Highly recommend for large group. Hot tub was really nice.rkc - Washington, DC
I rented this house for a large group of 12 people and had a wonderful experience. The house was beautiful and spacious and except for a small issue with one of the shower drains, which the owners fixed immediately, everyone had a great time. The kitchen was well-stocked and there were plenty of towels and linens.Erik K. -
Awesome rental property for large ski groups!!
Once again, the owners shared their enormous and beautiful rental property with my family and friends. Each year, for the last four years, we have utilized this property as we come to Utah for it's ample snowfall and various ski resorts. The greatest thing our group loves about this annual retreat is the SPACE!! The three levels allow the kids to have their own areas, plenty of space for all to relax after a great day of skiing, and ample sleeping areas. The kids ... and adults ... enjoy the oversize hot tub in the back yard gazebo. Deer grazing in the back yard or on the foothills that extend upward from the backyard are always an early morning treat! Additionally, by being down in the city area, we have all the local accommodations nearby ... including grocery store, drug stores, restaurants, movie theatre, and even a mall. As always, we look forward to our next stay at this beautiful home in Draper, Utah.Clint - Dallas Fort Worth, Texas
Excellent location. Amenities are excellent. Clean and very comfortable for group of 12 skiers.Sven - Columbus, Ohio
Great house and wonderful owners. We've stayed there twice for family ski holidays and had a wonderful time. Owners are really receptive and helpful; house is spacious, clean and is a wonderful place for a week holiday with family and friends. We hope to go back again,GT - Sand Diego, California
Great House with Great Views
Our visit was Aug. 24, 2011. My husband and I and four other couples had just finished a bus tour which ended in Salt Lake City and were looking for some down time together. We picked your house and were very pleased. It had the WOW! factor. It was even better than the pictures. The view from the front of the house looking across the valley was stunning! The many bedrooms suited everyone very well. We could all spread out and not get in each others' way. Several of us would sit out on the deck in back of the house as the sun came up over the mountain, drink our morning coffee, and enjoy the tranquil beauty. The house had everything we needed and the sauna and hot tub were nice perks. Laurie gave us the names of some very good restaurants nearby and places to visit. Your directions to the Kennecott Copper Mine were very helpful and what an interesting place. We had never seen anything like it. Bridal Veil Falls was great to see and walk along the river. We had a great stay at your house thanks for all your help.Ronald M. - St. Louis, Missouri
House with Great Views
I Ski wtih a large group: the owners were very helpful and accommodating. The house was very clean and big enough for a large group. We've rented this house for the past two years and enjoyed it. I would recommend this property to any one. It's between Big Cottenwood cayon and little Cottonwood canyon, easy commute to Solitude or Alta, Snowbird.Carol - Bellerose, New York
Each stay gets better!
2012 was the fourth year we've stayed in this property. We like it because it's homey, spacious, great floor plan and good memories. The amenities are a great balance of modern and comfortable. We look forward to staying here next year for another two weeks! Property is clean and well maintained. I'd recommend dining on Friday for lunch at Pat's BBQ in Salt Lake. Go early because once the burnt ends are gone, that's it for another week! The owner is very helpful to work with and eager to answer questions. Great place!teamsnewman - San Francisco, California
As always for the past 4 yrs this has been a perfact home for our family and friends. Great location and Owners are very accommodating with our days and time of arrivals. Highly recommend!!Toinette - Oakland, California
A wonderful place
We enjoyed this place immensely. My extended family came for a week and there was plenty of room for all. It is beautifully located at the foothills of the majestic mountains and deer would wander in every night. You really feel you are away from the maddening crowd here. We had a lot of fun in the outdoor jacuzzi, and had delightful barbecues in the backyard. We all relaxed in absolute comfort. The location is fantastic as it has easy access to SLC, shopping centers, and of course the mountains for hiking, skiing, and sightseeing. We really appreciated that the owners went of their way to make sure we had everything we needed.Dean W. - Lihue, Hawaii
Gorgeous home, great location
What a beautiful home! We had a wonderful week with our children and grandchildren in this lovely house located in the foothills south of Salt Lake City. When our daughter arrived from Arizona, she exclaimed, "This home is even more beautiful than it looks in the photos!" It was very clean, well-maintained and spacious. Room for everyone to sleep comfortably. Quality linens and towels, and plenty of them. There's a cozy kind of ski lodge feel to the place. Beautiful wooden beams, granite countertops, maple and tile floors and stone fireplaces. Cooking for the crowd was easy with two large kitchens fully equipped with everything we needed. The hot tub was fun for all and is situated in it's own little house. The views of the valley were breathtaking. Very nice, quiet neighborhood. We went hiking up in the hills right behind the house. A few deer came to visit while we were there. The backyard is private with a large deck, outdoor furniture and great BBQ. Beautifully landscaped yard. There are many stores and restaurants just a few miles away. Gorgeous canyons and nice public pools nearby. We hope to spend our vacation here in the future and have recommended it to our family and friends. The owner was very friendly, helpful and easy to contact. We were treated well and have sweet memories of our stay.Ann - Ferndale, Washington
Excellent house for a large group or family. We have stayed in the house for multiple years and it is always in perfect condition. The owners follow through on their committments and are very easy to work with.Skiers - Orlando, Florida
Great ski house
We had a fantastic time on our week-long extended-family ski vacation to Salt Lake City. The house was huge and homey at the same time, with a nice big kitchen and big comfy living room. The homeowner, Laurie, was very friendly and accommodating and was a pleasure to deal with. We would definitely return in the future!maurice s. -
This home was beautiful and spacious. We loved having the two kitchens so that our large group could eat and have lots of room. The balconies that wrap around the house have lots of tables for relaxing on taking in the fabulous views. We stayed here last year and are staying again this year.Cliff H. -
Wonderful location. The way the house is laid out is perfect for 4 separate couples or families to be together and yet still have their space. We would come back in a heart-beat.Michael A. -
Great House, plenty of space!
My company stayed at this location for the annual Outdoor Retailer show in Salt Lake City. This house has a ton of room, is in a quiet neighborhood and backs up to some great hiking/biking trails. We have comfortably slept 10 people in this house and did not feel like we were jammed in at all. The location is nice as well, easy access to the mountain or downtown Salt Lake.Anonymous -
We used this house as a central reunion location for several families..we never felt the need to leave the property! The owners were extremely helpful and everything was stocked appropriately. Great for everyone in our group, all ages. Will definitely be returning!Susan N. -
Great property for a large family gathering
My family stayed here for my mom's 60th birthday. It was the perfect setting for our large family gathering. We had five couples and numerous children and there were dedicated bedrooms for each couple and plenty of beds for all of the children. The two kitchens were great for when we needed individual family meal preparation, and gathering our full family upstairs for meals and games went very well. The wraparound deck has many great options for sitting and relaxing with great views. The hot tub was a big hit for the children. We met Laurie and Henry when we arrived and they couldn't have been nicer. It made the trip even better knowing that the owners were a text away and wanted to give our stay a personal touch. We would love to come back for our next gathering.Craig P. -
Great Place for Family Reunion
We have a large family when we all get together under one roof, and we love all being together. It is difficult to find a place within our budget where we can fit and be comfortable. We totally enjoyed this house where each family had their own bedroom and bath and yet we had space to all be together. We loved the large hot tub and the beautiful out of doors. Enjoyed the hike as well. The owners were the best and were so accommodating and helpful. Thank you for a wonderful place for us to spend time with our family!Gramms -
Fabulous summer vacation!
Our family loved staying in this home last summer. With relatives in Salt Lake City and Provo, we wanted to find a place in between the two cities, and additionally we wanted comfort, scenery and adventure both for adults and small children. This location met all of our needs including indoor and outdoor areas for large family gatherings. An unknown plus with this property was the view for the fabulous fireworks all over the valley on the 4th of July!Joanne -
Perfect Family Reunion
We had five family units gathering, and looked all over for a place that would provide the right combination of "together space" and "separate space" for our family reunion. This house was perfect for us! Every family had their own room and bathroom, with plenty of space for kids to sleep. We really appreciated the very large family room and play area overlooking it, so adults could sit and talk while kids played. We had one person in a wheelchair, and the house worked fine for that, too. The two kitchens allowed for each family to make their own meals, so kids could all have what they were used to. It was great, and we'll definitely look to come back for our next family reunion.TD -
the nee family

This lovely home is a palace and the owners were extremely accomodating. We literally had to buy groceries and were set for all other amenities, including shampoo, soap, paper towels, baby beds, security gates for kids, and dishwasher detergent. The house is well maintained and there were no surprises. We hope to be able to return someday.Happy Vacationer -
recently stayed at this vacation rental with our family members for a reunion. This home was absolutely beautiful and such a delight. The rental was very clean and was really equipped throughout the house. The kitchen had all the untensils/pots/pans etc to plan special dinners with our big family. I was also amazed how spacious this home was. We had 7 couples and 4 children and one baby and every one of us including the baby (a crip was provided) was VERY comfortable!! It really was a luxury treat for all of us. We were amazed with the loft full of games for the kids, the living room on the main floor and in the basement. We never felt over crowded or in eachothers hair, which can be difficult with a big family like ours. The majority of us had Televisions with cable in our room which was wonderful way to get away. The two masters on the top floor had oversized tubs with jets. It was like a personal spa in your room! The views were just outstanding from every window in the home. Sunsets are just unbelievable and breathtaking from the front main deck, I felt as if my eyes were playing tricks on me! The back of the houses views were just as glorious as the front, where you can see the entire valley. The house sits on the edge of the mountain base, so their is not houses behind this rental, just a beautiful mountain full of colors that I have never seen before. ABSOLUTELY BEAUTIFUL! The rental is also in a prime location, we were so close to the ski resorts (about 15 min from the base) and 3o min from Park City, UT. My family and I were so impressed with how outstanding this rental was, we will be coming back! The owners were so wonderful and kind too! This place is a GEM! Great for any event, families, etc,. I highly recommend this place to everyone!! See you next year for our new annual family tradition and thank you for one of the best vacations we have ever experienced! It was a real treat!Chelsea Mae -
