The Chalet Day Johns has earned its reputation as the premiere “place to stay in Alta,” as it was dubbed by Harper's Bazaar Magazine. Because it lacks neither warmth and coziness, nor luxury and charm, it is quickly being transformed from a well-kept secret into a famed legend by its affectionate guests.
The Chalet Day Johns is unique in Little Cottonwood Canyon for so many reasons. Just one step inside this 8500 sq. ft. home will take your breath away. Here the majesty of the Wasatch Mountains meets elegant design in a home that gracefully harmonizes guests with their surroundings. Natural light pours into all of the open spaces through enormous picture windows as does the spectacular scenery of mountains and woods that have captivated Americans (and visitors) for generations. The interior, adorned with soft leather couches, fine natural woods, and roaring fireplaces (5 in all), surrounds guests with an environment that absorbs them in the comfort and beauty of the emulated outdoors. Guests can experience frozen winter beauty from a place of warmth and serenity.
Indeed these kinds of accommodations are becoming a must for guests of the Canyon who spend their time in exhilaration skiing Alta’s world famous snow. The Chalet was designed with families in mind which is why so many of our return guests bring their loved ones year after year to make new memories. With eight bedrooms, each with their own bathroom, the Chalet can accommodate the largest families with not only space to gather (such as our giant dining room), but also with the privacy that everyone needs once in awhile.
