The mountains of northern Utah’s Wasatch Front are home to dramatic alpine peaks and sweeping mountain meadows. And for cabin lovers, northern Utah is the backdrop to a handful of truly iconic cabin spots.
Originally settled by Mormon pioneers in the 1800’s, the Wasatch front has grown in size ever since. Today the mountains of Utah attracts thousands of outdoor enthusiasts.
As opposed to the red rock country of southern Utah, the mountains in the north claim the best skiing destinations of the state, and among the top in the country. Both resorts and back country terrain offer skiers endless options throughout Big and Little Cottonwood Canyons, Park City, and north into Weber, Cache, and Rich counties.
But world-class skiing isn’t the only option on the menu. Far from it in fact. Cabin owners in the Wasatch enjoy excellent fishing, hunting, rock climbing, hiking, biking, and a myriad of water sports. In short, these peaks offer adventure and relaxation, year-round.

Bear Lake is a premier vacation destination along the Utah-Idaho border in Northern Utah. Over 74,000 acres of lake offer water enthusiasts the ultimate playground for boating, water skiing, jet-skiing, fishing, paddle boarding, and more! Or heck, if you’re not feeling the water, sit on the sandy beach and read a good book! When you own a cabin in Bear Lake, you have options.
In addition to the lake itself, the surrounding area offers awesome trails for hiking, biking, and riding ATVs. On the west side of Bear Lake sits the town of Garden City, which has an assortment of delicious restaurants. When you’re ready for a break, grab a fresh-grilled burger and a raspberry shake.
Cabins here are easy to rent in the summer months, if you would like to earn a little supplemental income. Winter time sees a serious drop in temps, but if you’re ok with bundling up, there is still plenty of fun to be had. Snowmobiling, skiing, and crackling fires at night are the perfect way to spend a Utah winter.
Of all the cabin areas in Utah, Park City is the most upscale and exclusive, by far. Here, the cabins are more modern, more amenitized, and more expensive.
Although the cabins sell for a pretty penny, it’s easy to see how their owners enjoy every minute. Deer Valley and Park City ski resorts attract skiers from all over the globe. The chairlifts are full of people speaking different languages, all coming together in one frosty melting pot.
Park City also has a unique and vibrant arts scene, with several galleries that attract painters, jewelry makers, furniture makers and other artisans. Every summer the Kimball Art Festival draws thousands of visitors, as artists display and sell their work.
Perhaps most famously, Park City is home to the Sundance Film Festival, which occurs every year in January. For a couple weeks, the town hosts award-nominated independent films, hundreds of celebrities, and visitors from around the world.
Dining, music, nightlife–the list goes on. Do it all, or just relax don’t do any of it. Either way, Park City is a great place to have a cabin. Check out available Park City cabins for sale here.
