Homestead Resort and Spa - Midway, UT

Stay at Homestead Resort in Midway, UT. Dates Available Into May.

Hotel At a Glance: Homestead Resort

The 126-year-old Homestead Resort has a near-miraculous feature on its property—its very own geothermic crater for swimming, diving, and soaking. Surrounded by Utah’s Wasatch Mountains, the historic resort also draws visitors for its proximity to nearby ski resorts, its on-site golf course, and its rustic cottage accommodations. Each morning, a complimentary continental breakfast is served before the resort’s free shuttle whisks guests away to the nearby ski resorts.

  • Must-see: Homestead Crater is the 10,000-year-old onsite geothermic crater and the place to go swimming year-round. The interior is heated by mineral water to a constant temperature of 90-96 degrees, and the hole in the dome lets in sunlight
  • Take the free shuttle to one of the four ski resorts in the area—Deer Valley, Park City Mountain Resort, The Canyons, and Sundance.
  • Spacious rooms and cottages: Cottages and garden rooms all have their own private deck or patio. Some feature vintage quilts and century-old photographs of the property.
  • Fore!: Go golfing on the 18-hole Crater Springs Golf Course, which features GPS-equipped golf carts and new ponds and water features. Frommer’s says the course is “well worth the trip.” (Golf course opens April 1, weather permitting)
  • Just renovated: Simon’s Restaurant, which serves pot roast, country fried steak, and other comfort foods. There’s also a gluten-free menu.
  • Go scuba diving in the Crater, the country’s only warm water scuba destination, or try paddle-board yoga, snorkeling, or just laying along the custom decks.

Midway City, Utah: Skiing and Scenery in Northern Utah

Winter sports are big in Midway City. The home of the 2002 Winter Olympics cross-country skiing and biathlon events, this little northern Utah town seems made for outdoors lovers. Pick up your skis and head to to Deer Valley, ranked the “#1 Ski Resort in North America” by the readers of SKI Magazine, to whiz down 90 trails and 1,750 skiable acres, or check out the 16 miles of groomed cross-country trails at Solider Hollow, named “Best Venue” for the 2002 Olympic Winter Games by USA Today.

If you’d rather stay dry, hike into Timpanogos Cave National Monument, three limestone caverns that are connected by man-made tunnels, where you can see helictites, stalactites, and stalagmite formations inside. Don’t miss a chance to view the area’s spectacular mountain scenery. A great way to do this is on the Heber Creeper, a 100-year-old steam locomotive that travels next to jaw-dropping views of the Provo Canyon Scenic Byway.

Customer Reviews

Rooms were comfortable and the staff were quite friendly.

Fun village like cottages to stay in. Fun to walk around and see
Melanie H. · July 28, 2017
The rooms and pool area were old, but it was clean. I don't understand why this property charged a resort fee because there were no extra amenities that would justify this. We had a pleasant stay, but I did feel it was overpriced.
