Yes this is a splurge, I will admit it. However, I was lucky enough to stay at the Montage Deer Valley for a week this summer and I cannot wait to go back. Most people think of Park City as a winter destination but it is totally worth a trip during the summer as well.
I cannot say enough good things about the hotel, the staff, the beautiful mountain surroundings and the WEATHER. There is plenty to do including mountain biking, chair-lift rides, archery, hiking etc. and its not too hot to do any of it! It’s a perfect escape from the stifling DC humidity.
A couple of my favorite things to note would be:
- The nightly s’mores around the bonfire – they had 6 different flavors of marshmallows!
- The free shuttle ride down to Park City – who knew Park City is such a hub for cute boutiques and restaurants?! I easily spent a couple of hours solo just perusing the town.
- The view from my room (see below). Will you just look at it?! I could literally have spent all day sitting on my balcony, sipping wine, and reading Outlander.
