Iconic creekside mountain home w/ private hot tub, fireplaces, & amazing views!

Enjoy the quintessential Alta experience at this outdoor enthusiast's haven right on the banks of Little Cottonwood Canyon Creek, where you'll be treated to an enviable location near the base of Alta’s Westward Ho ski run. As one of the first homes in Alta (built by one of the directors of the Alta Ski School), this home has been beautifully updated to retain the charm of the original structure while offering lavish modern amenities. At the end of a day on the slopes, you can curl up in front of the gas fireplace, read a good book or watch your favorite movie, take a nice soak in the private hot tub on the private balcony, and soak in majestic views of Mt. Superior and Alta Ski Area.

What's nearby:
Whether you're planning to watch the snow fall in the winter, wake up to the sounds of the neighboring creek in the summer, or catch a glimpse of the spectacular fall foliage, this home was made for lovers of the outdoors. The house is a short walk or free Alta shuttle ride from the base area lifts, providing you with easy access to some of the most challenging terrain in North America along with a variety of restaurants and shops. The avid skier will also find some of the best backcountry in the world nearby. Come summertime, you'll be within walking distance of hiking trails at Alta and Snowbird, as well as wildflower fields, other natural wonders, and the Hellgate Cliffs - a world-class rock climbing destination.

Great location next to a running creek. Close to trails. Super clean and comfy.

What a fun hideaway for a winter weekend with friends. The house was comfortable and clean. Amazing location. I’m not sure the description quite does justice to winter access to the house. We’re an active group of adults (who live and ski in the west) so it wasn’t an issue, but when it snows getting in and out of the house will require some leg work (the cabin has a sled so you can haul your gear up and down). Parking is also a little complicated. We worked it out, but the small lot is shared with all the houses tucked in off E. Peruvian Acre Rd and it is extremely tight. I wouldn’t recommend having more than 1 vehicle in the winter. The caretaker lives downstairs, which was fine with us (he was also very responsive to needs) but is good to know for future guests who might desire more privacy. All in all, it’s a very cool place and retains much of that old Alta character we know and love.

The house was great. Would’ve been nice if the path the house was kept clear of snow though.

Truly beautiful

Our accommodations were for 10 people. We had all the comforts of home, plus Alta scenic views. It was easy to find. Our contact person was available for all our questions. He answered all our questions and concerns immediately. We recommend this Chalet highly and hope to return in the Spring.

This was a great little cabin in the woods. Plenty of room for people to have some space to themselves but also some great areas for everyone to gather. It's off the beaten path enough to feel secluded but also have some restaurants and activities within a few minutes. Definitely recommend staying here!

Location, style, furnishing, comfort, plenty of room to spread out. Just perfect for our romantic getaway!

Beautiful cabin by a creek!
Full kitchen
Gorgeous master bedroom with view
Close to hiking and skiing
Helpful house helper downstairs

Small “Downsides” (for us): lighting in living room wasn’t very bright at night
Construction happening when we arrived (but they stopped at request).
Cabin in photos seems very secluded but is right next to a ski resort (which may be great for some people!)

Overall amazing and totally want to stay again!!

Manager response:
We are so glad that you enjoyed your stay! Thank you for your feedback on the lighting in the living room. We are following up with our local staff to see if we can add some an additional lamps to make it a bit brighter in the space.

My family and I had a great time staying at the Creekside Chalet. It was a clean place with comfortable amenities in an absolutely breathtaking setting. The caretaker was also super helpful and available whenever we needed something. We would go back in a heartbeat!
