Interior Design & Behind the Scenes in Talisker – Park City, Utah

Interior Design & Behind the Scenes in Talisker – Park City, Utah

We recently had the pleasure of working with one of our Washington State clients to design and furnish their vacation home in Park City, Utah – at the beautiful Talisker Club. During my trips to Park City, I was lucky enough to have a little bit of time to wander and explore. I was in constant awe of the picture perfect scenery surrounding this mountain resort town. Park City is most famous for its slopes – one of the most popular skiing/snowboarding destinations. And in the summer months, known for plenty of hiking and biking trails throughout the beautiful Uinta Mountains. While I didn’t have the time to immerse myself with the recreational activities, I was able to get some insider info from a local pro who is very much in the know.

Let’s talk about Talisker!

We had the pleasure of working with the Director of Sales & Associate Broker for Talisker Club – Tuhaye & Deer Valley’s Empire Pass, Mike Canzano, from Berkshire Hathaway and he was generous enough to share some highlights about Talisker Club in Park City.

Our Q&A with Mike:

What are your favorite amenities that Talisker offers its homeowners?  

Mike: There are so many amenities which the Talisker Club offers its homeowners but if I had to choose, I would say the ski in/out Tower Clubhouse in Deer Valley. As well as the new Base Camp and new 9 hole short course in Talisker Club’s Tuhaye neighborhood. I’m also a big fan of all of the hiking and mountain biking trails throughout the Tuhaye. Not forgetting the Fitness Center.

What are your go-to favorite restaurants in Park City?

Mike: The Talisker Club’s Courchevel on Main St (of course!!) is one of my favorites and we’re also big fans of Riverhourse and Firewood on Main St.

Must-see places to visit for future homeowners?

Mike: The 3,000 acre Jordanelle Reservoir for recreating on the water, the middle Provo River for fly fishing, and driving or hiking Guardsman’s pass to experience the Wasatach Mountains backcountry at 9,000 feet above sea level.  During Autumn, the foliage in Guardsman’s Pass with all of the old growth aspen trees is a scene to behold.

What are the most common reasons future residents choose Park City as their new home?

Mike: Accessibility to a small town that still has all of the amenities offered in larger populated area. Park City is only a 40 minute drive from the newly expanded Salt Lake City International Airport via Interstate 80. To have all the natural beauty, resorts, a beautifully preserved Old Town. Great dining, arts and culture, shopping and while still maintaining a small town feel. All while being so close to a major US airport is a rarity in the Mountain West.

Are there any unique spots in Kamas?

Mike: Kamas has a downtown which epitomizes ‘small town USA.’  There are a number of businesses involving shopping and restaurants with a lot of agricultural land surrounding it. It’s best known for being the entrance to the Mirror Lake Highway, which stretches 42 miles along state Route 150. It is one of the most popular mountain driving routes in the state. From its beginning in Kamas, it ascends high into the Uinta Mountains. Cresting at 10,715 feet at Bald Mountain Pass. It then descends past Hayden Peak, Kletting Peak and Holiday Park Peak before meeting with the Wyoming border. This scenic byway has many overlooks, picnic areas, waterfalls, lakes, trails and campgrounds. This mountain range is one of the few in North America that runs east to west rather than north to south.

If that doesn’t make you want to visit Park City, then I don’t know what will! I can’t wait for my next trip! A couple of my favorite stops: a delicious cup of coffee at Pink Elephant Coffee Roasters and some home decor and gift shopping at Olive & Tweed!
