This cozy B&B three blocks off Main Street is the next best option to owning one of Park City’s charming Victorian homes. The Old Town Guest House is like crashing with some funky ski bum friends, complete with insider tips on the best trails, bars, and restaurants from longtime innkeepers. Other “at home” features include a shared fireplace living room, a hot tub deck lined with Tibetan prayer flags, and a filling home-cooked breakfast served in a sunny nook.
Though an intimate inn, all four guestrooms (named for Park City Mountain Resort’s best trails) offer privacy—none share a wall. On the main floor, Treasure Hollow is a large room with a comfortable sitting area and two big, bright windows looking out over the town. McConky’s Suite is sweet for sure—it takes up the entire top floor of the house and can sleep four on a queen bed and a twin-twin bunk bed. The two 300-square-foot queen rooms—Quit-N-Time and Silver Skis—have their own half bathrooms but share a shower room. Expect lodgepole pine furniture, eclectic mountain style, and big windows in all four rooms.

The Old Town Guest House B&B is over 100 years old and nestled amid the town’s best Victorian architecture some three blocks from Main Street and the Town Lift whisking shredders to the top of Park City Mountain Resort. Like this B&B, many of Park City’s original buildings have been preserved, with 64 registered as landmarks even as they now hold premier restaurants, bars, and boutiques. Hollywood A-listers and Olympians flock to Robert Redford’s Zoom, housed in Main Street’s former Union Pacific train depot, for modern American fare including local trout served over herbed risotto with a delicate tomato butter sauce. Housed in a converted garage a block off Main Street, High West Distillery & Saloon isn’t just Utah’s first distillery since the 1870s, it’s a ski-in gastro-saloon recognized by the James Beard Foundation for its gourmet grub. Set in a former 1920s butcher shop, Talisker on Main is one of the town’s best restaurants, with modern mountain fare served in a setting that preserves original details, including a spectacular antique tin ceiling.
