Five stars at the Stein Lodge

This past weekend I had the wonderful opportunity of being hosted at the Beautiful Stein Eriksen Lodge, in Stunning Deer Valley.  From the moment you step out of your car and feel the crisp mountain air, a bevy of attentive staff cordially greet you to make you feel right at home.

 However, you quickly realize this is not your typical home, with a list of chores undone and the stresses of daily life, but it is your dream home.  The home where the air at 8500 feet, makes you feel lightheaded and needing some lemon and lime infused water, which Colin our front Desk attendant, quickly has brought over to you,  by Jose the Bellman.

They promptly check us in and have us whisked away to the inner courtyard of the lodge, where we are escorted personally by Jose to our suite. He sees to it that we are settled in and have everything we need until our luggage arrives.    I immediately walk right out to our over sized deck with stunning mountain views and a personal hot tub.  My senses are on overload, and this is just in the first 5 minutes after our arrival.  I now know why the Stein is the only 5 Star in Utah, attention to detail with service that is welcoming and inviting, without being stuffy or pretentious.  Well maybe a little pretentious, with the extra tall Voss water waiting for us in our room, compliments of the Stein.

We brought the children along for our weekend getaway, however there was plenty of time to feel romantic at the Stein. With the spring thaw well underway and the last weekend of skiing closing in quickly, we knew the Stein was the perfect place to do it all.  From our couples Massage to the perfect dinning experience at Glitretind, overlooking the slopes, I was reminded of why I keep coming back to the Stein!  The indulgent spring mountain air and the feeling of a secluded hideaway at this time of year, is one of the best reasons to escape to the Stein, before the rush of the Summer crowds descends upon Park City.

If you are in need of a reason to head to Utah for a Spring Break of another kind, or a local needing some respite from the Valley grind, The Stein Eriksen Lodge has 5 reasons for you, and they earn every Star!  So next time you’re in the mood to visit your dream home, where the complimentary breakfast buffet has unlimited Chocolate croissants, the pillows are always fluffed just right, and your pool is always the perfect temperature for a morning dip, this is the place for you.  My world travels always bring me back to my dream home in the Wasatch Mountains of Utah!

My personal favorites… The Couples Massage at The Spa!!!  The Elk Medallions at Glitretind (along with the Doughnuts and Marshmallows for Dessert.) The real wood fire place being lit by one of the well trained Stein Staff, or test the Boy Scout in you and light it yourself:) The hot cocoa or apps on deck by the fire pits, and of course the breakfast buffet, or the romantic room service breakfast set up on your teak wood table on your private deck.

I love this outfit. It is going to be worn a lot! Easter, church, dates, and whenever I can find an excuse to wear it. I love the bow detail on the high waist. If you want to order this, you can get away with ordering a size or two up. It is meant to be worn as a high waist, and runs a little small.

This weekend we are being hosted by the Stein Eriksen Lodge in Deer Vally/ Park City. It is amazing! I have always loved this place ever since I was little. Although I never visited until I started celebrating anniversaries, I remember watching Mary-Kate & Ashley Olsen’s ski vacation in their movie Getting Their. It wasn’t until recently that I realized how much of an impact those two girls had on me growing up. I wanted to be a twin s-o-o-o bad, and still would love to have a set of my own. And secondly, a ski vacation at the Stein Eriksen. The Stein Eriksen is the only 5 Star hotel in Utah. I am going to be doing a review reviewing why I give it my personal 5 stars.

I do love a sleeved beach cover up. It is nice when I have had too much sun or if I need to run somewhere after a fun day at the pool. I like having a cover up that actually covers me up and feels like I am wearing clothes.

I have a “thing” with boardwalks, they make me so so happy! I got engaged on one, that might play a big part. I love all the activity and beauty that surrounds it. I love starting my mornings off on a fun boardwalk, that is what I call a true vacation!
