House was spotless and beautiful. Well equipped kitchen. We had groceries delivered. Cooked every night. House was warm and cozy (despite -11 temps outside!). We can’t wait to come back!!
Response from Cottonwood Lodging CompanyThank you for staying with us! We apologize the garage if not assessable in winter ... it is a very steep drive down to garage and it was just too dangerous for guests. More than one guest slid down the driveway in an inappropriate, winter rental car and right into the garage doors. There was hopefully ample parking in the three-car, half-circle drive right in front of the house. We also apologize there was not a hot tub. This owner does not want one at her home, but I do have six other homes that do have hot tubs ... and several with garages. Thank you again for staying with us! Hope you are able to return soon and try out one of our homes that have a hot tub and a garage. It is indicated online what each property offers and you can call me anytime for detailed suggestions so you have the best vacation possible!

For context, we’ve done 2-3 vacation rentals per year for the last 15 years in 10 different states, VRBO and HomeAway and AirBnB and local agents. We are experienced renters. We’ve also rented other properties on the Brighton Loop; this is our 5th visit to Brighton Resort.
You can tell from the photos that the home and furnishings are high end.
You can’t see the hidden details that make this property even nicer than we expected and superior to 99% of other rentals – top quality mattresses and bed linens, radiant floor heating with separate thermostat in every room, well-equipped kitchen with quality knives, stocked spices cupboard, coffee-grinder etc. Every aspect of this property exceeded our (high) expectations. There are 2 twin beds in the loft in addition to 4 separate king / queen bedrooms.
I was a little worried, from Google maps, that the house might be too close to Cottonwood Canyon road, which is the main drag in and out and a busy road during ski season. But my worries were misplaced! The way the house sits on the lot – downhill from the road and behind huge snowbanks during winter – we couldn’t see or hear the road *at all*. There are only two windows in the whole house that have any view of the road – top floor loft and MBR bath looking downhill to the west. The views from the main living areas are unspoiled forest; the sound is silence! The house lives and feels like middle of the woods – but with easy access to Brighton or Solitude and first chair rides every morning.
Brighton Resort and Silver Lake are both easy ~10-15 min walks. Solitude is a ~5 min drive down mountain.
We’ll be back.
