Working and Long-Distance Learning

Last month, we talked about how working from home can now mean working from anywhere, including Park City! This month, we’re going to cover the great advantages of working and long-distance learning from a vacation rental!

working and long-distance learningThere’s no doubt in anyone’s mind that Covid-19 has changed the way we all live, and probably will for a long time to come. While we in no way mean to minimize the hardships that many people have been through, we also want to talk about the ways in which our lives have expanded.

As many schools and employers have embraced the work-from-home paradigm, the fabric of our lives is changing, in ways we could never have foreseen even a scant year ago. 

While many of us have chosen our place of residence based on career commitments or a good school district for our children, those physical tethers are disintegrating. Many of us are in a kind of awakening that we actually have a lot more freedom than we used to. 

With that in mind, we want to underscore some of the really important reasons you should consider working and learning long-distance from a vacation rental, particularly one in Park City.  

You Already Know You Love It

You’ve been coming here season after season, year after year. You’ve got your favorite trails, your favorite shops, your favorite restaurants. working and long-distance learning

While Park City may look a lot different than “home”, it’s known to you. It’s a place where you’re comfortable, you already know your way around and you already know your heart speeds up just a little bit every time you arrive.

Who wouldn’t want to work and learn long-distance from a spot you already love?

Try Out a Different Lifestyle

Tell the truth, you’ve dreamed of being a ski bum on at least one occasion, right? That’s okay, who hasn’t? While it’s probably not an option to spend every day on the slopes anymore, it is definitely possible to enjoy the lifestyle a mountain town offers. Things like close proximity to nature, a healthy outdoors lifestyle and yes, the slopes right there when time allows are all alluring features of life in the mountains. 

Change is Good for the Soul 

working and long-distance learningIt’s a great big world out there. Don’t let life pass by without seeing as much of it as you can. Working and long-distance learning from a vacation rental in Park City will teach you things you didn’t know about yourself and your resilience, your curiosity about life, and your environment.

Open Spaces

We enjoy lots of safe, open space here. Get outside and enjoy it!! Whether your passion is fishing, swimming, water sports, hiking, mountain biking, skiing or snowboarding it’s all here for you in Park City! And all at an appropriate social distance. 

Look Towards Relocation

If you’ve ever considered the big move of relocation, working and long-distance learning from a vacation rental in Park City will give you the best possible idea of how you would like our environs as your permanent home base.working and long-distance learning

Talk to our staff about the different areas of Park City and their unique features. We’d love to help! 


Last, but by no means least, wouldn’t you rather wake up to the sight of our magnificent mountains than your neighbor’s driveway? Just sayin’…

We hope to see you soon!

Work From Home in Park City

We Welcome You to Work from Home in Park City

So many things have changed in the last 6 months. Who would have ever believed face mask fashion and working from home would become “things”?  

There’s no doubt that the Coronavirus has had a profound impact on all of our lives. It has affected the way we interact with the world, from the way we shop to the way we exercise to the way we hang out with our friends and family. It’s created a whole new world and it takes some getting used to, right?

It’s hard to see a silver lining in all of this, but there is one. And that’s that there are now more remote workers than ever before. More and more employers are jumping on the “work from home” bandwagon and location freedom has become a real thing for many employees. 

In times past, the only people lucky enough to work from home were self-employed. The trade-off was the instability of self-employment. 

Now, remote workers get the best of both worlds. The ability to work in their pajamas, and not have to endure endless meetings AND have a steady paycheck and benefits. 

What could be better?

Ummm,  a change of pace, maybe?

Upgrade Your Views While Working from Home

That’s where we come in! Everyone is feeling a little stir-crazy after months of stay-at-home orders and endless Amazon boxes delivered to our doors. And staring at the same walls around our makeshift home offices can get, well, boring. 

Since you can now work from anywhere, why would you not want to work in Park City? While there are some safety measures in place (face coverings and social distancing are important here), many of the things you’ve always loved about Park City are open and available for your enjoyment! 

Plenty of Activities in Your Off Time

All of our 400 miles of open hiking and mountain biking trails are open. Just be safe and courteous to fellow hikers and bikers. Need a trail guide or outfitter? No problem, they’re open for business. Check out this list of available outdoor activities.  

Looking to hit the slopes in your downtime? Good news – the resorts are open. Since Social distancing is pretty much already built in to skiing, not much has changed, but check with each individual resort as a precaution. 

How about a romantic dinner or a kid-friendly night out? Check. While restaurants have altered their seating practices (parties must be seated at least 6’ apart), many of your favorites are open for inhouse dining. And of course, if take-out or curbside is more your jam, that’s available, too. 

If you’d like to pamper yourself or a loved one with a spa day, you can make it happen with the appropriate social distancing. 

Looking to stay out of the fresh mountain air for a few hours? Some of our wonderful arts and culture venues have reopened for our guests and locals.

You’re Safe with Us While You Work from Home

All of our vacation rental properties offer you the safety and security of your own private space, CDC-guidelines cleaning, WiFi, and the comfort of a home-like atmosphere while you’re working from home! A view of those mountain peaks, whether inside or out, is always inspiring!

You and your dedicated quaranteam deserve the adventure of a Park City work (or play) vacation! We look forward to providing you with a treasured family memory!

What’s There To Do This Fall in Park City? Plenty!

Fall in Park City looks a little different this year. We may be missing some of the festivals and gatherings we’ve attended in the past, there’s still plenty of reasons to visit Park City in the fall!

As a mecca for outdoor enthusiasts, Park City never fails to delight no matter what season you choose to visit. And with our current health concerns, you can feel safe and secure enjoying our stunning mountain retreat with easy social distancing from others. There’s always something to do, somewhere to go, and new experiences to be cherished.

Consider some of these options: 

Take a Hike! 

No, seriously. With more than 400 miles of hiking trails in and around Park City, you’re sure to find your perfect fit, whether you’re a novice or an advanced hiker. 

Wind your way through landscapes ranging from meadows to mountains to rivers and keep your eye out for a variety of local wildlife. Just remember to enjoy them from a distance – no selfies, please!

Mountain Biking

Looking for something a little more daredevil-ish than a simple hike? How about a mountain bike ride?

You might be surprised to learn that Park Çity is a mountain biking destination as well as a skiing destination, but it is! 

With a minimum of a half-dozen mountain biking trails in the area, you’ll no doubt find your perfect balance of exercise and scenery to enjoy. 


While you may not think of Park City as a premier fishing destination, there’s some pretty darn good blue-ribbon fly-fishing on both the Provo and Weber Rivers. Prefer to get out of the streams and eddies? Check out the still water fly fishing on the Strawberry, Echo, Rockport, and Jordanelle reservoirs. 

Hot Air Ballooning

What better way to see the entire Park City landscape than from within the safety of a hot-air balloon’s basket? Prepare for an awe-inspiring journey as you take in the oranges, yellows, and reds of surrounding fall foliage. Make sure to have that camera ready!

While most hot-air balloons accommodate anywhere from 4-10 guests, you can reserve a 2-person excursion with a 1-person pilot to maximize your safety.

Outdoor Dining

While it may be a while until we all feel safe about indoor dining again, we can certainly consider an outdoor meal (and in Park City, that may well come with a great view, at no extra charge!)

What could be better than sitting in the crisp fall air, with a favorite beverage and great company, while you enjoy a delicious meal from one of your favorite (or new favorite) Park City restaurants. 

A few suggestions: 

Riverhorse on Main

The Bridge Cafe and Grill


Main Street Pizza and Noodle

Flanagan’s on Main

Scenic Drives

Last, but by no means least, hop in the car and take a scenic country drive! You won’t find more beautiful country than in our little corner of heaven. Here are some suggestions to get you started: 

Guardsman Pass

Wolf Creek Highway Pass

Weber Canyon

Bridal Veil Falls Trail

So, while we’re experiencing our favorite destinations in a new way these days, that doesn’t mean we can’t still get the most out of every day of vacation. You can still avoid the crowds, travel just with your own quaranteam and have a picture perfect vacation in Park City.

We look forward to welcoming you into one of our Covid-clean and safe rental homes and condominiums. As always, if we can help in any way, simply ask. We love to see our guests happy!
