The space

Welcome! We have shared accommodation, as well as private guest rooms to serve you!

Accommodation: Queen sized bed in the Salt Lake City Downtown Neighborhood--right in the middle of all that's weird and wonderful about Salt Lake City. We can also add an additional twin bed with advance notice.

Your bed is in the Forest Room, on the main level of the main house. There is a full bath and kitchen. We have a large garden, sun-room and patio complete with fire-pit and grill as well as indoor commons area with TV for movie nights. We invite you to hang out anywhere and as much as you like.

Come enjoy Salt Lake City (URL HIDDEN) a cornucopia of funky and independent shops, galleries, bars & restaurants as well as large scale shopping centers and grocers. We've got amazing breweries; Epic, Uinta, Wasatch, Squatters, amazing Thai at Chanon Thai, several incredible pizzerias such as Settebello's Napoliana style pizza, a tea shop, 2 French bakeries, the delicious Banbury Cross Donuts, all within a few blocks. Catch a flick at the Broadway theatre, live music at the Urban Lounge or a show at Capitol Theater.

We have frequent block sized art gallery strolls. Check to see if there's one during your stay. Downtown Alliance Farmer's Market is every Saturday from June until October. You'll see washboard bands, teen violinists, bicycle pianos, Native American drumming circles at liberty park, fab art and funky attire all within walking distance of our front door.

Portions of the Urban farm are dedicated to well... farming. Feel free to check out our quirky birds and see what the garden is growing. Also, we are pet friendly!

We are on several major bus lines and one block from a designated city bike share route. By car we are 10-15 minutes from the airport, City Creek Mall, Temple Square and the Salt Palace Convention Center.

Feel free to stay as long as you like...we want our home to feel like home to you while you're here!

Lastly, this is a full home. It is likely you will other guests and housemates. We do our best to accommodate everyone. As such we have among the lowest rates in town. I will say that our home is not the Ritz. If you expect that then you may be disappointed. We've been told we have a hostel feel. This is the feel we are going for and these are the types of guests we hope to attract. If you are going to be rude or critical of our home then please book at a hotel. If you are going to be down to earth, friendly, respectful and communicative then we do our best to do the same and we would love to host you :)

If you need an additional twin bed let me know a week prior to your arrival and I can put it in the room

Guest access

Feel free to park on the street but watch for the no parking sign. There is also one little parking drive in front of the house. Alternatively you may park in our backyard lot. Access is to the south of the house adjacent to us and then around back.

Interaction with guests

We are open and friendly to interact with guests. Engage with us and we are likely to engage back :) Please know that we are not traveling as are you. We are here living our day to day. If we seem busy it is not because we are ignoring you or unfriendly, but likely just distracted. We will always try our best to say hi.

Other things to note

Also, we are pet friendly!

If you need a left-behind item shipped out to you, the cost is a minimum of $20 for my time, plus any shipping costs.

This is a clean, comfortable room. I did appreciate that the bed has a solid, comfortable mattress compared to the flimsy ones I occasionally encounter. The host was friendly and helpful. I would point out that it was summertime and the HVAC was set to a toasty 78 degrees for those of you who are particular about the temperature.

A good place to spend a holiday in SLC. Everything is great during my stay, especially the lovely cat. Highly recommended.

It is like a hostel but not as cleanly. The Forest Room was made of a DIY wall off the living room so sounds from the kitchen are quite loud. If you are a light sleeper, I'd skip this one. Communication and check in were good.

I have been in Salt Lake City for 5 years now. For fun, I build furniture, restore things, travel, snowboard/ski, cook, garden and enjoy being social. I have a flock of fowl and two cuddly cats.

I want you to feel at home so I'll do what I can to prepare you for a comfortable and easy stay. I'll help with any questions you may have of the city or neighborhood.

I speak Italian and Spanish. I speak French at intermediate level.

In life, I believe in communication, respect and freedom.
