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 are barely there because we work most of the time. 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.
We have wireless Internet but it is pretty slow. It works fine for checking your email but streaming and downloading isn't really an option. Location is a skier’s dream, but you don't need to ski to stay here.
We offer continental breakfast. Cold cereal, toast, fruit, and oatmeal. If you let us know, we will put the oatmeal in the croc-pot so when you wake up it will be hot and ready!
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. 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 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.
Ronnie and Lisa are excellent and generous hosts and their home is very comfortable! They live in a beautiful spot and very convenient to Snowbird. I really enjoyed staying here.
Wonderful stay! Lisa and Ronnie made us feel right at home. Comfortable and peaceful accommodations and great proximity to the slopes and the city made for a fantastic trip. Morning oatmeal is a must.
Ronnie and Lisa are perfect hosts. Renting out the rooms of their grown-up kids, they really know how to make their guests feel welcome and look after. Each morning Ronnie prepares oatmeal in a huge pot and there's a coffee maker for those who like to start with a cup of joe. The bedrooms upstairs are small but cozy - ideal for a ski-weekend away. And the location can't be beat - 30 mins from SLC and 10 mins from the slopes (Alta and Snowbird). It was also fun getting to know the other travelers. I'd definitely stay there again!!!
Amazing hosts! Really made us feel at home. It's hard to imagine a better accommodation for travelers coming to Snowbird/Alta area. I hope I can come back sometime in the future - when the snow conditions are a little better :) Thanks so much for your hospitality!
Ronnie and Lisa were very welcoming and immediately made me feel at home. As an example Ronnie moved my ski boots next to the fireplace so they would be warm in the morning. Breakfast oatmeal was a treat, and the location, just a few miles down the canyon from the ski areas, can't be beat.
