Like spring, visitors to Park City in autumn can almost experience two distinctly different seasons. For those who are visiting later in the season, perhaps planning a Thanksgiving escape to the mountains, you may be excited to learn that winter comes quickly to this part of the state, and the ski resorts of Park City and Deer Valley are open and ready to provide you with the first chance to participate in your first ski trip of the season! Your days will be filled with snow, and seeing Park City in its absolute best light will make you fall deeply and passionately in love. This guide to our Park City Hotels – fall vacation homes in Park City will help narrow down one of your choices—whichever part of the fall season you decide to visit during!

The early arrivals will enjoy the stereotypical fall days as the temperatures drop, the trees appear in their finest autumn garb, and the scent of smoke wafts through the air from a combination of wood-burning fireplaces, and later at night, fire pits burning in the backyard. Enjoying drives through scenic bypasses, the taste of pumpkin everything, and the new fall clothes you purchased specifically for this trip, life runs at a slower pace in the fall. These glorious days never last long enough for us, and as you take the lifts up the mountain, through the stunning countryside of Park City, you too will understand the appeal of a mountain fall.
Pumpkin Spice and Everything Nice
It is quite common for visitors from warmer states to plan their fall break during these early days of the season, wanting to experience what they see on television and in the movies while their friends and family back home are still wearing their shorts and tees. Stepping into homes, condos, and hotel suites that are warm and welcoming, they relish every cool minute of their stay! Maybe you will open the sliding glass doors that lead to the deck, stepping outside into air that has a bite but does not necessitate parkas, gloves, and ski hats quite yet. Standing at the railing, admiring the fiery colors of the trees that lead up the mountain, breathing in the fresh air that is cool and clean, and wishing that this moment right now could last forever. Perhaps you will explore the deck on a larger home, checking out the shiny barbecue grill, lifting the lid on the bubbling hot tub, and wondering if it is too soon to strip down and hop in! (Quick answer is no; it’s never too soon to spoil yourself on vacation!)
Travelers who have chosen our Park City resorts – 2023 condos or hotel suites may also use this moment to explore the community amenities, amenities may include heated pools, hot tubs, and community fire pits where making new friends is easy! Back inside your home sweet vacation home, however, you may still use these early moments to explore the rooms, give an experimental bounce on the plush sectional, flip the switch of the gas fireplace to on, and surf through the channels of the smart or cable access television often mounted above the mantel of the fireplace. Check out how the dining room table may be tucked away into the walls of windows that take up one full section of the room, giving you the feeling that you are dining al fresco without having to worry about chilly air cooling your food too quickly. Although you will probably spend most of your days outside playing hard and breathing in all that fresh, clean mountain air, many of your nights will be spent in these two (three if you count the kitchen!) rooms, playing board games, watching television, and peering out onto the dark landscape that will shine bright during a visit made during the full moon.
The kitchens in our Park City Hotels escapes are modern and bright (some hotels will offer kitchenettes, others won’t have a kitchen at all, but our vacation homes in Park City will definitely provide kitchens for your use) offering high-end appliances, stone countertops, and a cheerful ambiance that may convince you to cook a few meals, not just use them as storage space for your wine, coffee, and snacks! At night, the peace and quiet of fall will help guests fall deeply asleep, ensuring that when morning arrives once again, they will awaken feeling rested and ready for a new day of outdoor adventures.
A Winter Wonderland
Travelers that visit during the later part of the season are destined to have a fall experience that could be more properly described as winter, the prequel! Snowy days and snowy nights will make you feel happy to be tucked away inside our luxurious havens, enjoying warm fires burning in ALL the fireplaces, and yes, depending on the home you choose, there could be a bright fire burning in the gas fireplace in your master suite or in the en suite bathroom that was designed with luxury in mind. Deep soaking tubs, stone countertops, and in some particularly memorable models, televisions are mounted to the walls, allowing guests to watch their favorite rom-com while soaking in fragrant waters, perhaps with a glass of wine in hand. Outside, the snow may be falling, the wind may be blustery, and all the colorful leaves of the season may be lying under the first blanket of snow, but inside, you and your family will be warm, cozy, and relaxed!
The décor of your Park City Hotels escape may reflect the beauty of the countryside, featuring vintage ski posters hanging on the walls, vintage ski equipment used as art, and a rustic lodge feel in the furnishings and décor, making guests feel ready for whatever our prequel to winter may bring. Throughout the homes, you may find colorful throws tossed over the backs of sofas and chairs, meant to be used for added warmth and coziness. Multiple fireplaces provide warmth and romance, but electric heating will ensure that the temperatures inside are just right.
Kitchens can be made warmer if you choose to bake a batch of cookies and if you are visiting over the Thanksgiving holiday, preparing a family feast will be easy and fun! Name-brand appliances cook precisely, chill to safe temperatures, and reheat your Turkey Day leftovers quickly and efficiently! Coffee makers and Keurigs will allow every day to start out properly caffeinated, and wine chillers save room in the refrigerator, leaving plenty of space for food!
Bedrooms are havens for happy dreams and restful nights, game rooms will give guests some extra entertainment on evenings you don’t feel like going out and facing the chill of late fall, and amenities, both community and private will make you feel as if you never want to leave! Hot tubs, heated pools, heated parking garages, and even heated walkways are all just more ways that we work harder to keep you warm and safe!
