UNWAVERING IN OUR VALUES

DEEP ROOTS GROW

Abode Luxury Rentals has always been and always will be a business grounded in a few simple values, starting with building long-term relationships with our guests, our homeowners, our incredible team and everyone we work with; ensuring an exceptional experience every time. It’s the foundation of who we are and the legacy we will leave behind. Deep roots grow, and Abode Luxury Rentals was built to last and withstand the test of time.

OUR STORY

Abode was started over ten years ago by a husband & wife team, Rob & Rachel Alday. As owners of a slope-side second home themselves, they were dissatisfied with the services they were receiving from other vacation rental and property management companies in the market who were investor-focused rather than owner & guest-focused and were growing too fast to keep up with the caliber of service, care, and sophistication required for such exceptional properties. So they set out to create an entirely unique second-home ownership experience with the goal of approaching every situation from an owner's point of view, to take the hassle & headache out of the experience and to allow homeowners and travelers to relax & unwind in luxury and comfort.

Unwavering in our values, Abode Luxury Rentals has now grown into a highly respected company in our industry, fortunate enough to have a close-knit team who believe in rigorous attention to detail, with an unending love of creating dream vacations and lasting memories. For us, the work is never done, and as owners of a family business, we personally deal with our clients face-to-face. We connect with our owners and guests on a personal level and strive to provide exceptional second-home owner & vacation experiences. The Abode team selects its homes, condos, and estates so that guests can rest easy, knowing that they are experiencing the best of the best. We put a personal touch on everything we do because we believe that an excellent partnership starts with a personalized experience and trust.

Over ten years we've stayed true to our small family business values and commitments of providing amazing, focused results for every owner who entrusts their property to us and every guest who books their trip to the mountains with us.

MEET THE TEAM

Storytelling is at the heart of everything we do, and we have spent more than a decade curating a rare collection of the finest luxury abodes, pairing them with immersive experiences and elevated care to craft an immeasurable amount of authentic stories for discerning travelers.

Meet our community of creators, our Abode family.

LAURA STERN

OWNER SERVICES

I spent my whole life in a suburb of Chicago where I grew up, went to school and eventually ended up managing a medical office for many years. I moved to Park City in January of 2016 and have been happily enjoying this amazing place in the mountains ever since. I love being at the heart of what is going on with Abode Luxury Rentals and working on Main Street in the middle of the Park City action. I'm always in a good mood if there's a Starbucks Chai Latte on my desk.

LAUREN MARSHALL

MARKETING DIRECTOR

I grew up visiting Park City with my family on ski and snowboard trips. They moved out West full time from Ohio when I graduated high school and then I followed them shortly after I graduated from University of Colorado. 8 years later and I fall more and more in love with the mountains every day! I spent 6 years working in the live entertainment industry as a social media and digital marketing manager and joined the Abode family in Spring 2018. I love being a part of a company that truly is a family, and with every day comes a new adventure!

#

ASHLEY KIPPS-CANADY

MARKETING CONTENT MANAGER

Moving out west was very much a spontaneous decision. I grew up in Virginia hiking and camping in the Appalachian mountains where my family is from and after finishing university decided if there was ever a time to uproot, it was now. I've spent the last six years working in social media and marketing for fast paced brands like Kleinfeld Bridal and eventually found my way to Abode. Most of my time outside of the office is spent out in the High Uinta's backpacking with my dogs, swimming in alpine lakes, & shooting film photography of the incredible mountain west landscape.

BRAD PILLSBURY

MARKET & SALES ANALYST

Growing up my family was in the real estate and recreation business, so I saw how important customer service can be, and also how valuable recreation and time off can be for busy clients. I love being able to help people across the country with their vacations. The work at Abode provides me the opportunity to meet individuals from all over the world, learn new technologies catered to small businesses, and be a part of a growing company. The Abode office is tight knit, and everyone that works in here has a team approach.

TUTI BERTOLI

CONCIERGE OPERATIONS MANAGER

Born and raised in Cordoba, Argentina. I came to Park City to ski with friends back in 2017, but I found love in the mountains and this charming town became my home since then. I’m a designer who always worked in the hospitality business, and my passion about learning and improving people’s experiences brought me to Abode. If you fly in, don’t forget to check your window and look at our beautiful snowed mountains from above!

TILLY TILTON

RESERVATION SPECIALIST

Vacation is what brought me to the West. Four days after being in Utah, I called my family in Ohio and said I was never coming back. That was 1993! Someone once said "Travel is the only thing you can buy that makes you richer". I have been fortunate to travel to Greece, (got engaged in Santorini), France (saw Lindsay Vonn win the World Cup in Meribel) and I've been to 46 of our 50 states. However, I've never been sad to leave vacation and return home to Park City. Living here truly feels like we're living the dream! Remember, travel is not to escape life, but to make sure life doesn't escape us!

#

CHRIS BECKETT

RESERVATION SPECIALIST

I am originally from New York, but moved to Park City four years ago when I realized that I could both work and ski every day and have never looked back. When I’m not on the clock, I enjoy biking, skiing, and kayaking as well as exploring all that Utah and the mountain west has to offer. Park City has so much to do and such a vibrant community, and I enjoy meeting every guest and learning about what they bring to the table. I love how unique each property at Abode is and how each day brings new challenges and problems to solve.

MARK SCHUMACHER

GUEST LIASON

I have lived in Park City for the past 18 years with my wife Lorie, two sons, and our adorable dogs! I enjoy outdoor activities frequently which combined with my background in skiing, guest services, and vacation rentals is a great asset in helping you find the perfect home to meet your needs. When I'm not working with guests you can find me on the bandstand with Motherlode Canyon Band. I’m the guy with a green sparkle drum set and a big smile on my face! I look forward to helping you plan your trip.

CHANCE PHILLIPS

GUEST LIASON

I was raised in Northern California and moved to Park City 10 years ago because I love everything about living in the mountains, including hiking, snowboarding, mountain biking, and skateboarding. In the summer, the Deer Valley summer concerts are a must-do and a lot of fun! I went to school for photography, but found myself on the Abode team after years of experience in the service industry. The best part of my job is sharing how unique our home of Park City is with guests, and I love how Abode wants you to feel like a friend, not a tourist.

#

CELI CARRANZA

GUEST LIASON

I'm from Guerrero, Mexico but I have been in Park City since I was one year old and can’t imagine it differently! Living in the mountains has been the best experience growing up, the sunsets are so special, my favorite spot is PC Hill. When you come down, stop for drinks and aps at Boneyard! They might be a band playing on the rooftop. Working at Abode has been great, my coworkers are the most helpful and understanding people I’ve met, and together we will go above and beyond to try and make guests' vacation unforgettable!!

JULIE FINNEGAN

GUEST LIASON

Originally from Michigan, I migrated over several years on a winding path, through several western states, and finally settled in Park City in 1996. I fell in love with the mountains and never went back! I love Park City for the sunny, deep blue sky, the beauty of nature in the mountains, and the local wildlife sightings. And of course, I love the snow! Summers are also amazing here. At Black Bear Lodge I love the interaction with our guests and making sure they have the best experience possible. It's really about the little things we do in preparation and creating a friendly and welcoming environment.

CHRIS WIETECKI

OPERATIONS SUPERVISOR

Originally from Minnesota, I’ve lived in Park City since 2018. I love everything there is to do in Park City. Skiing, fishing, biking, hiking, fishing, camping, hunting you name it. The fall colors are absolutely majestic in the High Uintas and around Strawberry Reservoir. Before Abode I’ve worked in a number of different industries, like home damage mitigation, logistics, warehouse operations, operations manager for 5 galleries, fine art framer and installer and ski shop tech. If not working, you can find me playing in the mountains, 3D printing useful things or at OP Rockwell’s when it has live music.

BLANE BOSSUNG

OPERATIONS FIELD MANAGER

I moved to Park City full time in 2017 after graduating college, thinking that I would spend just one winter here. I found that the recreation access is amazing year round, so I decided to stay. In the past, I have worked in Outdoor Recreation so have been able to explore and get to know the area very well, and I highly recommend hiking to the top of Jupiter Peak in the summer! When I’m not working, I enjoy skiing, trail running, whitewater rafting, and camping. My favorite part of working at Abode is the company culture, specifically that the company supports the outdoor Park City lifestyle while being an extremely responsive and respectful business.

Originally from Grand Rapids, Michigan. I’ve been out in Park City for about 6 years. I’m really passionate about mountain biking, the mountains are why I moved here. Park City's history is so interesting. Did you know that people used to ride mine cars to get to different parts of the mountain to go skiing? This place is amusing, and working at Abode makes it better. We don’t have co-workers at Abode because you work with your friends, the culture here is amazing!

KYRA SPINAZZE

HR & ACCOUNTING CONTROLLER

Originally from Peoria, Arizona. My HR and accounting experience brought me to Abode. I really appreciate the culture here. I always feel encouraged to step out of my comfort zone and deeply enjoy laughing with my co-workers while constantly learning. I love being part of a team that goes out of our way to give guests what they need if it was not already provided. Also, life in the mountains is my ZEN. The restaurants and breweries in Park City are just amazing, my family and I always have fun going to the Egyptian Theater when we come to Old Town. Molly's Bookstore is an awesome place if you fancy books!

#

FAITH FALOU

ACCOUNTING ASSISTANT

I have lived in Park City my entire life, I’m proud of representing my Tonga culture and deeply enjoy being around my family. My favorite thing about my home town is experiencing ALL the seasons, you really can see and feel all four seasons come and go! Evening walks in the summer are the best! Since I came to Abode I never looked back, I first started at Black Bear Lodge and have since then moved on to different things in the company. What I love the most about my job is the fact that when I bring joy to our guests, it also brings joy to myself! I find an immense amount of happiness from helping guests out. Making peoples' vacations more enjoyable, more memorable (for the better), or as simple as making them feel more at ease is so satisfying!

JESSE MACON

OFFICE ASSOCIATE

I was born in Utah but my family made their way out east to North Carolina where I grew up. In 2015 I decided I wanted to be back out west and made my way back to Utah. I had a couple of connections here at Abode which is how I eventually made my way onto the team and it has been an awesome experience. Living in Utah is truly magical- from the snow in the Wasatch Mountains to the desert sands down south, I always feel so fulfilled here. In my free time I love to ski, hike, paddle board, and run around with my golden retriever.

JUSTIN UPCHURCH

GENERAL MANAGER, BLACK BEAR LODGE

I relocated with my family here in 1999 and I have always lived near the ocean on the West coast, but once I settled in the mountains, I have always considered this home! During the Summer months, I enjoy spending time on our local rivers here in Northern Utah fly fishing and adventuring to rivers in the West! Once Winter begins, you can find me on the slopes. I love being part of a luxury brand that excels in high end accommodations and providing a more personalized guest service experience to create the vacation experience of a lifetime.

TESTIMONIALS

Andrea

Former Owner & Guest

We had a great stay with Abode! We used to have our own condo in Deer Valley and we used them to manage our property, but we didn't realize how great the guest experience was until we experienced it ourselves. A pleasure to work with.

#

Sara G.

Former Abode Team Member & Local Partner

I've had the pleasure of working closely with Abode and this company has the best culture I have ever experienced in my life. The owners, Rachel & Rob are creating a safe space to communicate with their employees and they work tirelessly to provide the best environment possible for their employees. I am so lucky to have found this company and am so grateful to have been able to experience Rachel and Rob's leadership as well as Lauren's supervision. If you get the chance to do business with Abode, whether you're an owner, guest, or prospective employee, do it! You will not be disappointed.

#

Cara B.

Former Abode Guest

We absolutely loved our stay in Park City. The condo was spacious, comfortable and well-stocked. There were so many fun activities in the area that kept our group (ages 8 to 80) entertained! Perhaps the best part of our stay was how attentive the Abode staff was. We have traveled all over the country and I do not recall a rental agency that even comes close to comparing to Abode. Well done!!

#

Teresa H.

Former Abode Guest

We had a wonderful stay with Abode at Angus House. Service was always courteous and prompt. Texts were answered within minutes and I was never made to feel like an annoyance. All issues were resolved satisfactorily. Overall, we were extremely pleased with the Abode management team. If we purchase a home in PC, using Abode would be a no-brainer based on this wonderful experience.
