Our guest quarters downstairs consist of a main bedroom with queen-size bed, a second room with a single bed, and a private bathroom with tub and shower; there is free wi-fi access throughout and AC on hot summer days. Our property, half xeriscaped, is home to many birds including California quail, scrub jays, hummingbirds, mourning doves, and many songbirds. Deena, a gentle female sheepdog mix, is the third member of our family; we all love interacting with our guests! A light gourmet breakfast is included.

Location

Salt Lake City, Utah, United States

Our neighborhood is a quiet bedroom community very close to downtown Salt Lake City, the State Capitol, and City Creek Canyon. Yet, in the other direction, it's within easy walking distance of historic Ensign Peak and surrounding wildlands, home to deer and coyotes. One block away is a lovely public park with jogging path, tennis courts, and soccer field. Nearby trails make for a stimulating hike to the summit of Ensign Peak or a mountain bike ride on the famous Bonneville Shoreline Trail.

Christiane was born in Germany, grew up in Italy, and then moved back to Germany. Tom grew up in the New York metro area. We met in a classroom in Paris and two years later got married on a raft on the Snake River in Grand Teton National Park. After living in Seattle, Ann Arbor, and Pittsburgh, we moved to Salt Lake City in 1989, where Tom took a position as professor of English and Writing at the University of Utah. Until 9-11 Christiane had a travel business designing individualized, multilingual tours of Utah and the Western US; she is happy to share her knowledge with guests. We both love outdoor recreation (e.g. skiing, hiking, river rafting), travel, good food & wine, music of all types, reading, international cinema, political discussions, dogs, our iPads, gardening, and more. We have rafted the entire length of the Grand Canyon three times with oar-powered rafts. Tom was a rock climbing fanatic for decades and has a store of knowledge about local climbs. We can also advise about all the local ski areas, other attractions, and many restaurants. If you've never been to Salt Lake City you'll be surprised by its beautiful setting and all the things there are to see and do. We love it here and take great pleasure in sharing our knowledge with visitors!
