Bear Trap Lodge in Brighton

Overview

Property Details

Updated: Oct 20, 2014
House, 5 Bedrooms, 4 Baths, (Sleeps 24)

Nestled in the woods of Big Cottonwood Canyon, this fabulous five-bedroom Brighton vacation rental is the perfect haven to host family reunions, business retreats, or ski getaways. A private hot tub, lovely outdoor deck, luxurious furnishings and high-end kitchen appliances await your arrival at this rustic ski lodge.

Surrounded by trees and open wilderness, this cabin is truly an escape into nature. Soft white snow accumulates into drifts more than four feet tall creating a true winter wonderland. With all the snow you'll need a four-wheel drive to access the cabin in the winter. Solitude Ski Resort is one and a half miles away, while Brighton Ski Resort is just three miles. An abundance of winding trails are nearby for hiking or mountain biking. You can also try your hand at rock climbing or fishing, or simply admire the beauty of the local wildlife.

One visit to this home will forever redefine your definition of comfort and tranquility. The gorgeous interior features striking 30-foot vaulted ceilings, Craftsman-style woodwork and accent rock walls for a true mountain getaway.

The spacious great room is tastefully furnished with comfortable black leather couches, and the overhanging chandelier offers soft lighting and an air of extravagance. Return from an exciting day on the slopes to warm your fingers and toes by the wood-burning fireplace. Socialize with drinks and hors d'oeuvres around the coffee table, or settle in for a family movie night on the enormous 72-inch TV. Natural light flows through the wall of windows along with images of lush greenery.

The well-equipped kitchen is a chef's dream, and it will be easy to cook up bountiful breakfasts to prepare for a vigorous day of skiing or celebratory holiday feasts. Stainless steel appliances, ample counter space and a butcher-block island ensure you have everything you need to mix and stir ingredients to your heart's content. A row of wooden dining tables seat eight guests each so conversation and food alike can be shared family-style during mealtimes.

There will be no squabbling over the beds in this cabin as the five bedrooms contain a total of 12 queen-sized beds. The first four rooms are all furnished with two beds, wooden dressers and bedside accessories including nightstands and reading lamps. The fifth bedroom is a bunk-style room with four queen-sized beds, sloped wood-paneled walls and cheerful plaid bedding %u2013 a perfect room to put all the kids so their whispering and laughter doesn't disturb the adults. The four bathrooms ensure everyone has space to complete their morning and nightly routines.

A second living area makes this home the epitome of an entertainer's ideal destination. Plan a billiards or ping-pong tournament to spice up your vacation with a little friendly competition. The additional kitchen may come in handy when time is of the essence in preparing the Thanksgiving turkey, or when your group has differing opinions on what's for dinner.

This home has so many ways to keep everyone busy, whether they prefer to surf the Internet, watch cable TV or a DVD/VHS movie, cozy up with a good book in front of one of the fireplaces, or sit in the steamy sauna. And with a laundry room, you won't have to worry about what to do with dirty clothes. Though it may be tempting, don't spend your entire trip indoors as you will miss out on the plethora of activities this home has to offer outside!

When the sun is shining, relax on the deck and enjoy a few chapters of your latest read. Bring along an easel or sketchpad and let your artistic senses be inspired by nature. Barbecue a summer feast using the grill on the covered patio. Indulge in a relaxing midmorning soak in the hot tub, or use the steaming water to soothe your sore muscles after a day on the mountain.

Altogether, this home can comfortably accommodate up to 24 guests. WiFi is provided so although you are peacefully secluded in the canyon, you won't be isolated without your email or social media.

With so many great ways to keep busy in the house, plus the world-class skiing and other active pursuits nearby, you may be content staying close to the lodge. However, if you would like to plan a trip into a larger city for a nice lunch, a trip to a movie theater, a huge variety of shopping, or an educational museum visit, Salt Lake City is only about a 30-minute drive away.

Settled in the midst of magnificent alpine scenery marked by wildflowers in summer and breathtaking snowdrifts in winter, this spectacular Northern Utah vacation rental is a picturesque getaway no matter what time of year you visit!

A fabulous house!

  • 5 of 5
This was a wonderful home with lots of amenities for all ages! Our family from five different states-east coast to west coast stayed there for a long weekend. We were there for a family wedding which actually took place @Silver Fork Lodge. It was a perfect location and a fabulous stay for all of us-ages 7 to 73!! Would definitely recommend it to all.

Vacation for the generations

Vacation for the generations
Coming from a large family it has always been important that all the generations of kids continue to enjoy time together specially when they live in different states. This cabin it's location and accommodations made it possible for great grandma (83) to new the newest addition (6months) and all in between. We disconnect from the day to day and really enjoyed spending time with each other. Games, crafts, hikes around the many lakes, wildlife, fire pit. Then a family movie at night before the kids all pass out. So much fun for all. Everyone of all ages went back to childhood memories. Fun singing around the campfire and painting faces. This place is magical with room for everyone to find there spot for a book on the patio or a water fight battle out back. Memories for a life time. Thank you for sharing the very special place with us.

Skiers Delight!!!!!!

  • 5 of 5
I'm writing for a group of 12 men, ages 45 to 70, all avid skiers, who travel west each year to different ski resorts. One of our requirements for rentals is that no one has to sleep with another guy. Bear Trap Lodge suited us perfectly, because it had 12 queen size beds. The Lodge itself had everything we needed. Although our cooking skills are pretty much limited to opening cereal boxes, it had a great kitchen for those who want to cook. This includes a viking (?) range and refrigerator, a large outdoor grill, upon which we destroyed a large number of steaks one night, and a dishwasher: absolutely essential. There was plenty of silverware and tableware, so that we still had some when someone forgot to turn on the dishwasher. It had a hot tub and sauna, much loved by all; Game room, with pool table and table tennis; a huge fireplace in the living room, along with lots of couches so you can enjoy it. Truly a great place for your ski vacation. I want to add that the owner, who lives close by, was invariably helpful when we needed something. He also has some kind of influence at the Silver Fork Lodge restaurant which is within a half mile and has excellent food at reasonable prices. I could say more but suffice it to say, you can't go wrong with this house.
