Ski Lodging Near Snowbasin

As winter time soon approaches, it is time to plan your ski vacation and to find ski lodging near Snowbasin. But did you know that the Valley House is the closest Bed and Breakfast or hotel to Snowbasin? We are just 12 minutes from Snowbasin, 20 minutes from Powder Mountain, and 15 minutes from Nordic Valley.

The Ogden Valley contains some of the best skiing in the country, and the crazy part is that nobody knows about it. Snowbasin has world class facilities and is rated #6 in the country for groomers. It was one of three ski resorts used in the 2002 Olympics but has been kept secret since. Weekdays are empty and Weekend lines are quick. Powder Mountain on the other hand is much less steep than Snowbasin but is known for its powder. Residents to the Ogden Valley say they can find fresh, untouched powder weeks after a storm. Powder Mountain averages 4 acres/skier on a busy day. It’s basically like having a resort to yourself.

Romantic Getaway Near Ogden

It seemed to happen overnight but the leaves changed colors, the air turned chilly, and the smell of Autumn is in the air. Huntsville truly is the perfect Fall romantic getaway. Once you finally get up into the Ogden Valley, it’s as if time is standing still. The city noise is gone and all you hear is silence with the occasional “moo” of a near by farm. The temperatures are perfect for hiking, salmon are spawning, the lake is finally not crowded anymore for some excellent fishing, and the leaves are more vibrant than ever. Huntsville is the perfect place to come and leave your busy life behind and reconnect with yourself and your loved one.


New Beds, New TVs

This week, ThValley House Inn B&B near Snowbasin Utahe Valley House received all new beds and TVs.  The Valley Suite was upgraded with a brand new king size mattress from its original queen size.  All of the rooms received 43″ smart TV and are now streaming Netflix.

The biggest challenge was getting the king size mattress up to the second floor. To those who have not yet visited, the Valley House was built with a very narrow stair case. With the help of three men, the mattress made it to the Valley Suite unharmed.


First Guests

The Valley House Inn had its first guests since the new ownership.  Randy and Rebbecca stayed in the Log Haven Room, and enjoyed the star ceiling the most.  Nicole and Britain were lucky to have such amazing people as their first guests and look forward to seeing them again.

Under New (and probably the youngest) Management

The Valley House Inn was bought this week by only its sixth owner ever since the late 1800’s.  The new owner Britain, age 25, is a local of Huntsville, UT.  He and his fiancee Nicole, age 22, have fallen in love with the Ogden valley due to its small town feel and proximity to skiing, boating, and more.

Britain and Nicole were lucky enough to be able to buy the Valley House Inn.  They immediately began to appreciate its historical significance.  After all, the home was built and lived in by the first mayor of Huntsville.

Both Britain and Nicole are excited to have the opportunity to meet guests from all around the world.  They believe it will be easy to help their guests fall in love with Huntsville because it is a place that they care for and know so well.

Great Vacation Spot in Huntsville UT

We have had a great summer with people coming from across the United States and the local Utah getaways.

We even had people from London, Denmark, and China. The main activities were bike races, boating, fishing, hiking, and romantic retreats.

The fall season is upon us and is beautiful. The temperatures are just right and the pace is a little less hectic. Perfect time to enjoy the inn is now.

What about an upcoming ski vacation? We have three ski resorts close to us. Now is the time to make your plans for a great vacation.

Winter is Almost Here…

We’ve had a great summer and fall season is now upon us. The leaves are bright orange, red, and yellow. It’s a beautiful time of year, not too hot and not too cold. It’s a great time to explore the gorgeous valley without all the crowds of summer. If you like to go on walks and hikes, what better time?

How about a hay ride or horse back ride at Red Cliff Ranch. We have several very excellent restaurants within a short distance. If you’re the indoor type, you may just want to go out to eat and come back to the inn, sit by the fireplace in your room, watch a movie, or read a book and have a cup of hot chocolate.

Winter is just around the corner with world-class skiing at Powder Mountain and Snowbasin (home of the 2002 Winter Olympic Downhill). Another popular activity is Ice fishing at Pineview Reservoir, northern Utah’s largest recreational lake. Ice skating (skates available) is a stone’s throw from the inn. There was actually fresh snow on the mountain peaks last night and even a little on the valley floor.

Don’t loose out on your best calendar dates.

Book now for best choice.
