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.

Born & raised in Chicago, Rachel found success early in her career in corporate marketing, eventually setting her sights west to Park City.

Channeling their passion for all things Park City, along with a dedication to providing transparent, high-end service to both homeowners and guests, in 2010 Rachel & Rob set out to create Abode Luxury Rentals, a boutique luxury vacation rental company that enabled them to share their love of these mountains with visitors.

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!

MORGAN ANDERSON

OWNER SERVICES

I have called Park City my home for my entire life, and I love its fresh mountain air and historic charm. Before working at Abode, I mainly worked in the nonprofit world with a performing arts foundation, and later joined the team at Abode. My favorite part of my job is that I can have a big role in making families have a great vacation as well as the amazing Abode staff! All the staff truly cares about each and every reservation, which is something extremely special. Outside of work, I enjoy bee keeping, skiing, backpacking, and camping.

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!

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.

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.

#

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.

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.

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.

#

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.

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.
