House Rules

Welcome to Swiss Cottage! We hope you enjoy your stay!


1. Parking - There are two parking spots in front of the cottage. Please park in the driveway and not on the neighborhood roads outside the cottage. The roads can be narrow making it difficult for neighbors to get by. If you need additional parking, you may be able park on the main canyon road (summer only). Please know that we cannot be responsible for any lost items or damage regardless of where you park your car.

2. NO FIRES - Due to high fire danger, the fire department has BANNED ALL outdoor fires / open flames of any kind. Guests who light a fire may be cited by police and/or the fire department and are in violation of house rules. Guests are also liable for the spread of any wildfire.

3. Neighbors and Quiet Hours (No Parties)- The neighborhood is very small and very quiet. Please be respectful of the neighbors in terms of noise. Quiet hours are 10 pm to 7 am. Our house rules specifically state that there are No Parties allowed. Neighbors are very likely to call the police and report a party and/or excessive noise. We want your stay to be a positive experience for everyone involved so please don’t risk it. In general, most of my neighbors like to keep to themselves so if you have questions, please ask me.

4. Dogs and Pets - Please remember that there are no pets allowed in the cottage at any time. Dogs are specifically prohibited in Big Cottonwood Canyon as it is a watershed and the police frequently issue fines (even if the dog is kept in a car).

5. Trash - there are bears (and other animals) in the canyon and so we ask that you not leave any trash or trash bags outside at any time. There are two spots to dump trash and recycling as follows: (best if you are going UP canyon) (best if you are going DOWN canyon)

We pay for access to these dumpsters on a monthly basis so they are yours to use.

6. Water- our water comes from natural springs in the area. They flow at a lower rate in the winter time. Showers will be hot but please don't run longer than needed and help us to conserve winter water. If you have any problems with water during your stay, please let us know ASAP as we want you to be comfortable.

7. Ski storage - We kindly ask that you do NOT bring SKIs or POLES into the cabin. We suggest that you store those either on your vehicle or if you would like in the shed adjacent to the driveway (it is unlocked). We DO provide dryers for boots and gloves inside the cabin as well as hooks for coats and pants. We want your gear to be nice and dry every morning! Note that the cabin does have a combination washer and dryer for your use, however, it is not well-suited to drying wet ski gear.

8. Safety: You acknowledge that you are in an alpine environment where snow, ice and other natural hazards may be present on any surface at any time (including but not limited to falling snow and ice). As your hosts, we have made reasonable efforts to make the surroundings as safe as possible for all guests, however, we are not responsible for any injury or accident associated with your stay. Guests acknowledge that snow removal may occur at any time during their stay, day or night, in an effort to ensure safety and accessibility. Host will make reasonable efforts to remove new or heavy snow, however, natural events may prevent us from doing so (we provide a shovel by the door for guest use). Guests are not to attempt to use or play on any snow removal equipment other than the shovel provided. Guests agree to exercise caution and good judgement to avoid accident and injury and follow all posted signs and warnings in and around the cottage. Guests accept all risks and liability for any injury, accident or theft and agree to hold the host harmless from all damages, litigation or other responsibility. Do not attempt to climb on the roof. Doing so can result in serious injury or death. Doing so will result in loss of your security deposit and additional fees.

9. Communication and Feedback - we want your experience to be amazing and we want to earn a 5 star review from you. If there is anything we can do to make your stay better, please contact us via the AirBnB app ASAP. And when you leave, please be sure to leave us a review. It helps us know what we’re doing well and helps other travelers know what they can expect. Thank You!

Thanks again. We hope you enjoy the cottage as much as we do!

The cottage was charming and a great getaway from the city. Communication with the owners was good.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. First time exploring the area and this was a great place to be near but away from the city itself. Hosts were extremely helpful with recommendations and responsive to any questions we had. Extremely cute decorations and theme. We didn’t need the loft space but it seemed to be as described. We cooked all of our meals and the kitchen had everything we needed. One of the most relaxing stays I’ve had to date, it was just so comfortable.

A lot of heart and soul has been poured into this home - and it was definitely felt during our stay. It will always be a sweet memory for my son and I. Thank you for all the love that came with this stay.

Excellent house, location, and communication! Master bedroom downstairs, four beds upstairs in a loft. The cabin was very cozy but modern appliances. We came to hike and did fantastic trails just minutes driving away (there's even a trail directly across from the cabin). Highly recommend

We really enjoyed our stay in this cozy cabin. Very clean space that was easy to kick back and relax during our stay. Ben was thoughtful and communicated well with us throughout our visit. Beautiful place to enjoy the mountains!

Utah locals, my husband and I needed a getaway while we finished up some renovations. Ben & Niki's ski cottage was perfect! We went on several nearby hikes and found their space to be clean, cozy and very relaxing. Nicely stocked and very put together. Thank you for letting us enjoy your home!

Ben was an excellent host and the cabin was everything we wanted. Would totally stay again. We had a great time!

Sweet and comfortable cottage. Very clean and spacious.

Our second time staying at Ben & Niki’s place, but certainly not the last! The Swiss Cottage is a little slice of heaven. Beautifully decorated & comfortable, and very well-priced for the area. If you love to hike like we do, there are more hikes than you can count within just a few miles of the cabin. Ben & Niki are responsive, friendly; and want to make your stay perfect. We can’t wait to come back!

We loved our stay at the cabin. The weather was amazing, and the wildflowers were magnificent. The cabin is small but laid out well. The loft is cute but definitely meant for kids or petite adults. As for essentials, the cabin had everything we needed. would definitely stay again.

Ben’s place was perfect for our family of four young children. Ben was the most communicative, responsive hosts I’ve ever had. Truly a pleasure. His cabin was squeaky clean and exactly as pictured. Beds were comfy, kitchen was well stocked, and the home was beautifully decorated. There were toys and games for our children to play with (always a plus). We loved hearing the creek every morning. The neighborhood is great to walk or hike in the mountain behind it, and the neighbors were also very friendly. Perfect spot in the canyon. We definitely hope to return!

Ben was a great host who was incredibly helpful and responsive, and also gave plenty of privacy and space. The house itself was VERY clean and the beds were good. The house was closer to the road than expected but the location, which is smack dab in the middle of the mountains and near trails, river and waterfalls could not be beat. It was all in all a very comfortable stay - thanks so much!

This place is sweet, super close to Solitude and Brighton. Can’t wait to come back!

Beautiful cabin in the canyon. Well-stocked kitchen, and comfortable beds. Great decor, felt like we were in the Alps. Wifi wasn't gigabit but was fast enough to take zoom meetings comfortably. If you're traveling in the winter, I'd recommend to have a 4x4 with good tire tread.

amazing spot tucked below Solitude. Great value for a ski trip minutes from the mountains!

Ben was an Amazing host, very responsive and checked in to make sure we had everything we needed. The house is amazing, perfect for a family of four, it’s a very charming house and very close to Brighton and Solitude. We really enjoyed our stay and will be back. Thank you, Kathy Saffell

Excellent host. Very communicative and accommodating. Ensured that we were plowed out early everyday to be able to get to the ski resort early (even with EPIC snowstorms!!!!!). Ben also made recommendations about things to do downtown. Kitchen was totally sufficient for cooking meals. Common space was nice for hanging out. Enjoyed the fireplace. Comfortable beds.

Loved our stay at Ben’s place! Right down the street from Brighton and solitude resorts which makes it the perfect ski retreat. Would definitely stay again!

Beautiful little chalet up the canyon! Would definitely book again.

Very cozy cottage, settled in the beautiful canyon, not far from park city and close to a handful very nice and tasty restaurants. The hiking is spectacular and Ben is unmatched when it comes to communication and helping with restaurant recommendations and other tips in the area. Very nice place to stay in that area whilst avoiding the big crowds in park city.

Amazing spot for serenity and getting some work done!

Such an amazing place to stay. The cottage has everything you will need and is so cute and cozy. It is super close to the solitude resort! We went on some of the hikes nearby that the host recommended and they were beautiful and perfect for families. Highly recommend staying here if you get the chance!

Ben’s cottage was a wonderful & relaxing staycation for my family. It’s proximity to Solitude and Brighton allow for endless activities. The cottage was beautifully decorated which made us feel we were far away from home in the Swiss Alps! The personal touches; like vintage games, condiments, and water bottles provided were very much appreciated! We look forward to staying here again soon. ?

The place is fantastic! Easy access to everything. Aspens and pines for miles!

Great location, in the mountains with fun hikes nearby while remaining close enough to the conveniences of the city. The house has everything we needed; no issues at all working remotely with wifi. Being in the middle of a drought there was an issue with the water but Ben was very responsive and fixed it in the middle of the night. We hope to be back!

We had an amazing stay at your cottage! It was so cute, clean and well decorated! Not to mention the close distance to the mountains. We had an amazing time. I like the added touch of the games you had there. We played Clue as a family and just enjoyed the amazing amenities!

The chalet is in a perfect location for skiing and provides a clean, cozy and comfortable place to hang out. It exceeded our expectations!

Great family place, skiing access is amazing and the host was so easy in helping us get in and have a great time.

Beautiful Airbnb! So close to Brighton and Solitude ski mountains. Definitely recommend.

Beautiful Cabin! Very Clean and Cozy.

We had a great time at the cottage. Ben was a wonderful host- he checked in several times to make sure our stay was going well and even came to shovel some snow one day while we were up at the mountain. The cabin being within 10 minutes of both Brighton and Solitude mountains was a huge plus and coming home to a warm fire after a day on the slopes was wonderful. Thanks for the great stay!

This place is perfect! Clean, spacious, easy to get to, super close to skiing! If you're looking for a great place place to stay in big cottonwood Canyon, this is the place!

The swiss cottage was easy to find, the fieplace was great! Everything about it was very cute and clean. Bring extra wood bc the fireplace is epic. Perfect for a small group!

Fantastic place and hosts. We had a great time with our family at this cabin. We loved how close it was to hiking. My nephew loved the space and we had a great time. Remote enough to feel away but Internet and tv worked well which was necessary for children. Would love to stay again!

Exquisite touches. Immaculate, yet cozy. Gorgeousness.

Ben was super responsive to questions and checked in throughout the weekend to make sure everything was going okay. The cabin is delightful and such a fun place to relax and hang out with friends and family. We went on hikes daily and there are lots of suggestions for things to do in the area. Highly recommend this cabin and I hope we can come back again in the future because it was the perfect weekend getaway.

The Chalet was such a nice place to stop and getaway for a week. My wife and I were on our way from Oregon to Colorado and we could not find a better place to stop for a few days to break up the drive. The fireplace and porch is unbelievable and there are some great trails nearby. Also the wifi was hyper-fast - working remote on calls all day was no problem. Ben was maybe the most responsive host I've ever encountered as well. Would definitely recommend this place!

Seriously one of the cutest, most comfortable, clean places we’ve stayed. Amazing! We loved the area as there was lots of hiking. Beautiful surroundings. So many sweet little touches.

Enjoyed my stay. Love the location.

The Cabin is beautifully decorated and very nicely furnished! We were a bit worried about the lacking A/C but it was perfectly fine with the windows open at night! The hosts were fantastic and very responsive and helpful! The cabin is in a GREAT location, very close to several hikes, I don’t think we ever drove more than 10 minutes for a great hike and even had two where we didn’t have to get in the car! Both Park City and Salt Lake City were very convenient to get to! Overall, we had a great trip and a great stay at the cabin!

This cottage is so cute! We had our 4 kids with us and they loved the loft! They had games for them to play and movies to watch! The weather did not cooperate at night but they still had a great time inside! The cabin stays pretty cool during the day if you crack windows at night! We really enjoyed our stay and would recommend to anyone!!

Ben's place is incredible. It is newly renovated and stylishly designed. The outside huge deck area and fire pit were perfect hang-out places for family bonding and for picture taking. Our experience was fabulous at Ben's Place.

Such a cute cabin! We had a blast

Ben's place was great. clean ,modern, great location and great host. We enjoyed the fire pit outside and nature all around. Just minutes from Solitude and Brighton.

What can I say?? We loved our 2 nights at Bens place! Our daughter wanted to stay somewhere special for her 16th birthday with her best friends so she chose Ben's place. It was super easy to communicate with Ben, he was kind and prompt. When we got to the darling cabin we couldn't stop screaming in delight at the surroundings! The fire-pit, the lighting, the forest, the cabin itself and it's Swiss decorating, the cleanliness, etc, etc, etc! I can't say enough about this idyllic little cabin! We loved playing the Ukulele's! There were 2 on the wall and my daughter and I learned a couple songs during our stay and r now ordering our own to learn! We sat around the fire pit playing during the evenings making s'mores, laughing and talking. It was a wonderful happy time to be all together. We took a couple walks around the area, looking at cute houses and the beautiful surroundings. My husband really wanted to watch a college football game and I had to connect my phone, which took some time, but we were aware there wasn't any WiFi so I didn't know if it would work anyway. However, Ben informed me they are working on getting WiFi installed. We didn't care though- it's meant to be up, away from all the distractions, which I love because at home I am always saying, "get off your dang phone!" The neighborhood is very quiet. There is some traffic on the road but it didn't bother us at all, the property is surrounded by trees. We ordered some pizza from the little pizza place up at Solitude Ski resort & brought it back to the cabin to watch the game. My daughter now wants to build a cabin exactly like this one! She took all kinds of pictures to decorate her future cabin the same way! Thank you so much Ben! We will definitely be returning as soon as possible!

The Swiss Cottage is a gorgeous hidden gem in just the right spot! We wish we’d gotten to spend more than one night there, but that’s all the time we had. In our brief visit we enjoyed a gorgeous and approachable (with a 6 mo) short hike to doughnut falls, and a wonderful dinner at the Silver Fork Lodge & Restaurant. Both were phenomenal! The cottage itself is cozy and well appointed, with a spacious and open living dining and kitchen area, comfortable beds, and plush linens. A pack and play was available for our use which made out travel easy. Host was accommodating, responsive and informative. I hope we’ll be back!

incredible place with even more incredible views! great spot for a weekend getaway.

Awesome stay, will be back!

A charming cottage in a great location close to Solitude and Brighton. Our family of four enjoyed a cozy week in this adorable Swiss style chalet. We also found Ben to be very responsive to any needs and questions throughout our stay. We will definitely be back!

Super sweet cabin in the woods appointed with all the amenities you would need and a very stylish space!

Ben was a fantastic host - super responsive, and very helpful/accommodating. He even drove over in a snow storm one morning to help me dig out my car so that I wouldn't miss prime skiing hours!

We had a great week at the Swiss cottage. Ben was very responsive and even managed to get some stuff we missed in the cabin within a day. It was very clean and the cottage was in a convenient location close to Brighton and Solitude.

I spent the weekend in this cozy cabin — felt like we were in the Swiss Alps, cozy cozy. And, extremely convenient to ski mountains. What impressed me most was the host’s responsiveness to various queries we had during the weekend.

I have never used Airbnb. However, if all the host are like Mr. Ben who responded to our questions and concerns promptly, I will always use Airbnb. They are amazing host and made sure we felt welcomed. The place is located in a beautiful canyon that has many hiking trails near by. I fell in love with this place. I would definitely recommend it to family and friends. Very satisfied with our choice of staying here. Thank you to our wonderful host who made sure we enjoyed our visit. I cannot wait to come back.

We enjoyed our time here, it was clean, comfortable, and a great outdoor space!

My sisters and I gathered here for a weekend of fun, crafts, hikes and lots of laughter. All the beds were comfy, we cooked together in the little kitchen, and enjoyed a fire in the evening. We were close to so many hikes, coffee, a quick pedicure and of course peaceful mountain mornings. We had a great time! Thanks so much, Michelle

The cottage was very clean and quite charming. This was the perfect size for our family of 6. The location was beautiful and we would definitely love to come back again sometime!
