Great location
100% of recent guests gave the location a 5-star rating.
This turn of the century home, set in the quiet and quaint town of Spring City, sits on over an acre.

The Jailer's Cottage sits next to the 165 year old rock jailhouse (still in tact).
With 4 bedrooms including a large loft with 5 beds, a cozy living room and a large, spacious kitchen, this home has plenty of room for family and friends to spread out and relax.

Lots of area outside for parking, playing yard games, and includes space to park an RV, RV hookups and an RV sewer connection.

The space
The perfect taste of home (and Grandma's house), this unique 128 year old cottage is 2 blocks from the Horseshoe canyon road, 3 blocks from the Old Schoolhouse Museum, the City park with a playground, large rotunda fire pit, endless lawn, a baseball field and covered pavilions. And just a hop, skip and a jump from Mount Pleasant and Ephraim.

Amazing wildlife abound this delightful space and so few street lights you can see the stars on a clear night. You may never want to leave.

Perfect home for family reunions. Located close to all the local historical sites, in between Ephraim and Mount Pleasant and only 17 miles (20 minute drive) to the beautiful and scenic Manti Temple and Temple Hill.

This location and home is perfect for hunters. Just minutes from some of the best hunting locales in the state.

Writers and Artists have loved staying in the Cottage. Spring City is a quiet and somewhat secluded town with so much unique scenery and charm.

Palisades State Park is only 30 minutes away. Families and groups can enjoy paddle boats, paddle boarding or fishing on the Palisades lake and even picnicking on the beaches while the golf enthusiasts enjoy a round at the Palisades Golf Course. Some of the most gorgeous scenery in the County.

Breakdown of rooms and sleeping capacity:
Sarah’s Room-Sleeps 2 (Queen)
Claire’s Alfred Owl Room-Sleeps 2 (Double)
Two Sister’s Hideout-Sleeps 3 (Queen/Single)
The Loft-Sleeps 5-7 (5 Twins-2 fold out sleepers)

1 Bathroom: For over 60 years, the large families used the existing outhouse and wash tub. A (Pink) bathtub was added to the home around 1950 and a few years later a toilet and small sink were added.

Today, we take for granted large and spacious bathrooms or more than one bathroom in a home, these were luxuries not easily afforded back then. Someday we will make a luxurious bathroom for our lovely Cottage, until then, you get to experience it the way it has been for the past 70 years.

Bed linens and bath towels are provided for all guests.
