COVID-19 Updates

We’re in This with You –And Here’s What We’re Doing to Help!

First off, we want to express our sheer gratitude & appreciation for our guests. If the quarantine has taught us anything, it is to reflect on the things we’re grateful for. We know you have options and choosing to book with Moose Management Vacation Rentals means a lot to us!

In the current environment, it is important for all of us to travel smarter and more consciously. That is why we want to inform you of the steps we are taking to ensure your health and safety in your travels.

We remain fully open for business and are prioritizing the safety of our guests, owners, staff and vendors. We continue to monitor the COVID-19 status and work with our local officials to ensure we are doing all in our power to maintain a safe and healthy environment.

Our properties are sanitized, cleaned, and disinfected prior to guest check-in. Our housekeeping checklists meet CDC cleaning standards.

We are a keyless check-in company; the entire booking takes place online and you are given a garage and/or a door code to enter the property directly.

Please know that we are aware of the stress and uncertainty surrounding travel this year. On the flip side, booking some time away provides something to look forward to!

With summer quickly approaching, Park City is a great place for hiking, mountain biking, sitting by a fire, enjoying a private hot tub, playing games and changing your scenery to gorgeous mountain or lake views.

Reserving a private home provides a perfect way to safely vacation.

We have updated our travel and cancelations policies to give you peace of mind when booking your future stay with us.

For all new reservations, we will honor the following policy:

WORRY-FREE Booking Policy

Book a new stay arriving between May 1 2020 – March 31, 2021, and if you cannot travel during your selected dates due to COVID-19, we will give you a future stay credit for the full value of your reservation. This credit must be used toward a future reservation and is valid for one year from your original arrival date.

Please review our cancellation policies, as they are still applicable. No refunds outside of our listed policies will be granted. The availability of your originally booked property is not guaranteed. Nightly rates vary throughout the year. You will be given a full future stay credit for the value of your original reservation; however, you will be responsible for any additional cost associated with your new reservation dates. No refund of the originally paid amount will be granted unless it meets the refund criteria of our cancellation policies. 30-days’ notice must be provided for reservation date changes. Reservations made on a third-party site (such as Airbnb or Vrbo) may be subject to that channel’s terms and conditions if they differ from Moose Management’s.

When you are ready to travel, we’re here to ensure your stay is enjoyable, relaxing, and above all – safe.

“We Travel Not to Escape Life, But for Life Not to Escape Us”




A Most Unusual Spring

We’re living in unprecedented times. No one alive today has seen days like these. In oft-repeated words, this virus has been “the great equalizer” in that we are all vulnerable. It doesn’t care if we’re young, old, rich, poor, black, white, there is no discrimination. From that perspective, we are now one global family banding together to get through this terrible ordeal.

Of course, there has been division, and finger-pointing, perhaps borne of fear, perhaps other emotions. This has been a terribly trying time for all of us. Unfortunately, it may continue that way for some time. 

But, and this is a great, big but, the human spirit has not been broken. We hear stories of heroism and generosity daily. A newspaper delivery man who has started grocery shopping for his elderly neighbors – for free. The woman who brought her therapy dog to their regular nursing home appointment and visited through the windows with the residents. The celebrities who are livestreaming free entertainment. The thousands of vacation home & RV owners who have offered up their properties to our selfless first-responders. 

Then, of course, there are the everyday unsung heroes. Neighbors that check on each other. Friends and family who share what they have, whether it’s a meal, a face mask or a roll of toilet paper. As always, times of crisis seem to bring out the best in humanity. And for that, we are all so grateful. 

If there’s an additional silver lining to this worldwide crisis, perhaps it’s the signs that the Earth has started to heal itself since we’ve all been in lockdown. Fish are returning to the canals in Venice. The air above Los Angeles has cleared. The Himalayan mountains are visible from India. 

Eventually, this hardship shall pass. The world may look different when it’s over. But it will end. Let’s hope that when it does, we’ll all retain the lessons of friendship, family, compassion, generosity and love that we’ve collectively learned. 

And then we’ll go out to dinner again. We’ll go to a movie or go get a drink. We’ll hug our loved ones. Maybe we’ll shake our friends hands. We’ll shop at fully stocked grocery stores and supermarkets. 

Best of all, we’ll be able to enjoy vacation again. One day, hopefully soon, all the state and country borders will open and we’ll start making plans again. We’ll drool over the beautiful vacation homes and condos on websites. Make our reservations. We’ll get back in our cars and we’ll book our airplane seats.

And we’ll arrive at our favorite destinations. We’ll breathe in the crisp mountain air. Our eyes will sparkle with the sight of something new. We’ll greet our favorite vacation rental managers and pick up the keys to a new adventure. 

At Moose Management Vacation Rentals, believe us when we tell you we’ve missed our guests. We’ve missed answering your questions and recommending our favorite restaurants and activities. After all, we CHOSE the hospitality industry! We want you all to follow your local instructions and keep yourself and all your loved ones safe and healthy. And as soon as we’re all able, we can’t wait to see you again!

Until then, friends, Park City and Moose Management Vacation Rentals await your return. 

Unique Adventures in Park City

Nearly every day in Park City is an adventure in feeding your body and soul with crisp, fresh air and exhilarating exercise. And then topping it off with a rejuvenating hot tub soak or maybe a mellow beer or glass of wine.

Offered by the Lodge at Blue Sky, this highly unique experience allows you to explore a 3500-acre wonderland on snowshoes, followed by a toasty yoga class in a fireside yurt. How can you not gift yourself with this incredible offering? 

Take a Scenic Train Ride

While not an unusual activity, the scenery you’ll enjoy is unique to Park City. Aboard the Heber Valley Railroad, be prepared to spot a variety of wildlife, including bald eagles, elk, coyotes, and mule deer. You may even experience (yes, this is a spoiler alert) a cowboy train robbery. Don’t worry, it’s all in good fun!
