A major shift is happening in the vacation industry and it’s changing the way people plan their trips.


In the past travelers were very focused on booking their stays with resort hotels when they headed for the slopes of their favorite ski resort town. Over the past ten years the number of rental properties in ski towns like Park City, Utah has grown exponentially. This is partially due to the recession and the need for many property owners to subsidize the cost of their second home.

This increase in the inventory of spectacular rental properties has opened up the eyes of many travelers who are realizing that while at a hotel they may have to rent multiple rooms to accommodate their family (parents, kids, grandparents, etc). This shift is providing the option of renting one larger luxurious home and enjoying the ease of everyone staying together. In a home setting families can have large dinners together in privacy versus in a restaurant. They can all sit together at night playing games or watching movies instead of relaxing in separate hotel rooms. And most important to many families – they can save money. Renting three rooms for a week during peak ski season in Park City can be much more expensive than renting a luxury 5 bedroom home for the same time period. And with private homes you have the option of renting close to any area you find most desirable. Whether that is near Deer Valley, Canyons or Old Town it’s up to the visitor. Many rental properties in Park City are even ski-in/ski-out allowing guests to literally ski out their door and onto the slopes.


Some travelers worry that they will miss the amenities that hotels offer if they rent a private property. But this is not the case – especially when booking a rental with Abode Park City. We offer high end gift baskets, cold beer and fine wine complimentary to each group when they arrive. All bathrooms are stocked with luxury lotions, soaps, shampoos and conditioners just like at the finest hotels. We are happy to arrange for daily cleanings and in home massages making our guests feel as pampered as if they were staying in a five star hotel. But the best part is – they aren’t in a big public hotel with crowded common areas. They are in a private luxury property where every comfort of home is available and every service is just a phone call away.


If you’re looking to plan your next ski vacation and you’re considering Park City – take a minute to peruse our collection of high end rental properties. You will undoubtedly be amazed at how easy and comfortable your trip will be and like our past customers you’ll be planning your next trip before you even get back home.
