The winters can be cold in Park City and the surrounding areas, but what else would you expect from a mountain destination that is basically a playground for winter sports? Vacations to Park City are meant to be spent outside as much as possible, skiing down the slopes of Park City Ski Resort or Deer Valley Ski Resort, building snowmen on the grounds of our favorite hotels in Deer Valley, and staying out until you can’t feel your fingers, toes, or nose! This is when you will discover the best part of the winter, those moments when you come in out of the cold, change into your warmest and most comfortable jammies, and sit in a cozy room with a fire crackling merrily in the fireplace!
Perhaps your dream moments would include a cup of Irish coffee in your hand or even a rich and creamy cup of cocoa, and maybe, because you are so cold, a colorful throw is tossed over your lap and over the lap of your favorite traveling partner. Snow could be falling heavily, creating a solid white mass outside your floor-to-ceiling windows and frost may be forming on the outside of those windows, but you are cozy and snug reveling in the warmth of your Deer Valley haven; this guide to the delights you will find with us during your Deer Valley escape will help you prepare for a vacation you will wish never had to end.

The One for You!
Offering a variety of homes that range in size from 2 to 4 bedrooms, your vacation experience in Deer Valley starts the second you walk through the door. Many of our Park City Hotels Deer Valley sanctuaries offer a place to sit and take off your wet boots and hang your coats and hats before you venture any further, ensuring the wood floors (or tile in some cases) will stay warm and dry. Follow their path to the first room on our tour, the living room, where plush furnishings will provide comfort, stunning views will delight, and the fireplaces are the center of attention! Gas fireplaces mean you never have to worry about fussing with kindling, matches, and wood to build a fire, and with a flick of the switch, it adds instant warmth and romance to the space. Modern conveniences in the living rooms include Smart or cable access televisions, high-speed internet, (available throughout the entire home, of course!), and in some incidences guests will quite possibly find DVR players and stacks of movies. The living rooms are perfect for movie nights and mid-afternoon naps, marathon reading sessions, and cuddling with your sweetie on a cold and blustery night.
When families travel together, the dining rooms become the hub of the home, and with the open-concept floor plans in most of our hotels in Deer Valley, the fire can be enjoyed while eating, playing games, or while sipping a glass of wine while scrolling through social media sites at the end of a fun-filled day. Large tables surrounded by enough seats for every seat in your traveling party may be placed in front of floor-to-ceiling windows, allowing guests to enjoy the views in the daytime and at night, hanging lamps ensure that the space stays bright enough for dad to read the words on the cards of the game being played.
Next to the dining room, the kitchen is always a popular space, offering the ultimate comfort of homemade foods and delicious beverages. The small appliances are just as important as that gas range and extended-size refrigerator/freezer and may include a blender for creating handmade cocktails and electric tea kettles that heat the water quickly for a delicious cup of tea, and in every home, either a traditional coffee maker or Keurig that will ensure every morning starts out perfectly caffeinated! Custom cabinets, stone countertops, and a cheerful ambiance will make the kitchen one of your favorite places, even if you don’t use it for cooking. Open up one of the doors in the hallway for a fun surprise, a stackable washer and dryer unit may be hidden behind it, so guests can pack light and save room in their luggage for treasures found while shopping in Park City.
As adults, you may have discovered that sleep isn’t the easiest thing to do when you’re constantly worrying about adult things like bills, and work, and why your kiddos are getting less-than-stellar grades in school. Vacations can also be difficult times to catch up on sleep as travelers often feel uncomfortable in new places, but during your Park City getaway and your stay in our Deer Valley hotel rentals, sleep will come easy every night of your stay! Large bedrooms anchored by beds that may be king-sized, the linens will be high thread count, feeling soft against your skin, and the mood will be perfect. Some of our Deer Valley, Utah vacation rentals may offer a fireplace in the primary bedroom adding to the ambiance and smart or cable access TVs will allow guests to fall asleep to the laugh track of their favorite sitcom. En suite baths with soaking tubs and walk-in showers feature updated fixtures and a small welcome kit of toiletries for your convenience. Our welcome kits do not provide bath oils or bath bubbles, but if you pack some (or pick up some at one of our local stores) ending your evening by soaking in fragrant waters, sipping chardonnay, and letting the music playing softly lead you into such a relaxed state, sleep will come within minutes of your bath ending. Bedrooms with bunkbeds will be popular with the tweens and teens you are traveling with, even if a squabble breaks out over who gets the top bunk, and televisions in most of the rooms will give guests the opportunity to wind down for the night in the ways they are most used to doing!
Amenities You Will Love
Large decks furnished with multiple places to sit and dine, barbecue grills, and the occasional private hot tub are another example of the attention we pay to all the details, and if your particular rental doesn’t offer a private hot tub, chances are the community in which the property is located will provide community hot tubs and even community pools to be enjoyed in the summer months. Some communities will offer outdoor fire pits, where friendships can be made after a long day on the slopes. Most will offer heated garages that will keep your car warm, dry, and ready to roll anyplace you want to go, something that can come in handy during the winter months!
