About this listing
Private room for rent in Sandy, Utah located just 5.5 miles from Snowbird and 7 miles from Alta. Located just half a mile up Little Cottonwood Canyon. Beautiful surroundings in a very quaint resort. We are up the canyon so that means tall and beautiful mountains in the front and backyard. This is as close to the ski resorts as you can get without actually staying at the resort and paying resort prices.
On pow days there is usually a long line that stretches for about a mile but when you stay at our house, leaving in the morning is great because you can pull out in the front of the line to get up the canyon! NO TRAFFIC! You get to sleep in AND no waiting, its great! Very quiet location. Cell phone service is limited depending on your carrier, but you usually get a few bars.
Includes access to two bathrooms, a kitchen and a living room. You are welcome to cook and use the pots, pans and dishes any time. We have two fridges with plenty of space.
Free parking right in front of the house. WE HIGHLY RECOMMEND THAT OUR GUESTS HAVE A CAR. It is possible to stay here and use Uber but you usually end up paying the same amount for much less freedom. We also recommend 4X4 if you are staying during the winter. You never know when it will snow and how much. The home has four bedrooms total. We rent three of them. This room has a 2 twin-sized beds.
There are grocery stores about 5-10 minutes down the road. Smith's is the closest.
Because of our secluded location we have NO INTERNET ACCESS and limited cell service. So please be aware of that before booking. Location is a skier's dream, but you don't need to ski to stay here.
Since our home is located up the canyon we usually recommend that our guests have a car. The nearest public transit is too far to walk to. An option for carless guests would be to take the airport shuttle or a taxi to our house and then hitch hike up and down the canyon for skiing. Not convenient, but possible.
Often guests ask if they need a car with 4-wheel drive or chains. It really depends on the snow conditions. Most of our guests have 4-wheel drive, as they know they will be driving up the canyon. However our road is always plowed and we rarely have anyone get stuck. We own a car that doesn't have 4-wheel drive and it gets by just fine. Jan-March are the snowiest months.
We don't own any pets and don't allow any pets. Sorry to all the animal lovers. We technically live in a watershed area so pets aren't allowed.
If this room is not available for the dates you would like, then please check the other two rooms we rent from the same location! The room for which you submit the reservation request is the room that we will be able to approve. Airbnb doesn't give us an option to switch you. So please make sure you send the request for the right room. :) This is for the room with the twin beds. Please note these are regular twin size beds, not the extra long ones. We also don't mind what time you arrive. We understand that often planes land late. If we go to bed then we will leave the door open for you!
Once you book, we will email you the best directions to the house. (website hidden) maps and apple maps don't do a very good job at getting you here.
Don't hesitate to ask questions! We want your stay to be perfect! Please let us know what we can do!
We also have discount passes to Snowbird for $75 each. Just ask about them when you arrive if you are interested! Cash only
Other Things to Note
If you are interested in booking, please just instant book as it is common for guests to inquire and then lose their date as somebody else instant books it. Also be sure to include the arrival time that way we can work with your schedule.
We expect you to have a good time! Obviously no breaking things, blasting loud music or disrupting the neighbors. We expect you to treat our home with care.We are pretty easy going and hope to provide you a nice place to stay while in Sandy/Alta.
