There's something about an oversized ottoman that we just can't resist. That, and exposed beams framing a flood of natural light. Maybe that's why we chose this ski-in/ski-out penthouse in Deer Valley with Natural Retreats. Or, maybe it's their library of luxury rentals across the country. Either way, we're booking.
There's something classically cozy about a river rock fireplace, a knotty pine kitchen, and a front door just steps from the Red Pine Gondola in Canyons Village, at Park City Mountain. For anyone looking to book a budget-conscious vacation rental (we get it, you're on the mountain more than you're in your room), All Seasons Resort Lodging has a list of properties and a low rate guarantee.

Whether you're enjoying a weekend strolling up Main Street or catching the Town Lift to ride Park City Mountain, Park City Lodging is one of the few rental companies with a full-service concierge to help with everything from lift tickets to room keys.
Vacasa — Creekside Chalet
When it comes to old school charm, Little Cottonwood Canyon is hard to beat. Which is why this original home (featured online as one of the first houses in the area) tops our list of must-have ski chalets next to ski-only resort Alta Ski Area.
But what we really love about Vacasa are their 360 degree tours of almost every home listed on their website. Instant vacation anyone?
While this list just barely scratches the surface, we hope it inspires some research and that you'll soon book your family or quaranteam a cozy vacation to Utah that you won't soon forget.
