Susie Townshend is the sole owner and manager of  Mountainside Treasures.  She established the company when she moved with her family to Park City, to escape their 6 hour weekly commute from New York City to Northern Vermont, where her children were growing into avid ski racers.  She has spent several years managing her own condos on VRBO, one in Park City, Utah and one in Jay Peak, Vermont, and as such she understands first hand the specific opportunities and challenges of renting in the Park City market as well as the difficulties that can arise with owning, using and renting a property away from home.  
Most importantly however, Susie's passion is to be involved in helping people create their dream vacation in the mountains.  The easier the process is, from planning and booking, to arrivals, accomodations, activity ideas and equipment rentals, the happier the visitor will be and the more able they are to experience the wonders of Park City.   Her best reward is undoubtedly the delighted client and their families, who are thrilled by wonderful vacations, from start to finish. 


With over five hundred reviews and an ongoing average score of almost 5 stars, please don't take my word for it. Since 2008, guests consistently review that they have had a great experience from booking and managing expectations to the welcome and pristine nature of the condos and the wealth of local information shared.  
"From the very beginning of my contact with Susie I could not have been happier! She was so helpful and friendly! When we arrived at the cozy condo we felt comfortable and excited to see how easy the skiing would be. We loved the place and had a great week of excellent skiing! We would defiantly return. Thanks again!"  Sharon K, March 2015
"The condo exceeded all our expectations. It was exactly as advertised and the perfect size for our family of four. The owner was always ready to help with any questions and concerns we had. The fact she lives in the same town means you never have to worry about something going wrong." Jim R, April 2015
"We stayed in this condo for the month of August. Prior to this visit, we had stayed in a couple of other units in the Snowflower complex and this was by far the best we have rented. The owner's description is very accurate and the furnishings are updated and modern. The kitchen is very nicely equipped with modern and well maintained appliances. Susie is very accommodating and helpful. We had a great time and would definitely rent this condo again. Thanks, Susie!" Ramona R, August 2014
"This was a last minute booking when the snow started to fall late April at Jay Peak. We reached out about this condo in the morning. Susie responded right away and we managed to complete the booking within an hour. We drove 4.5 hours and checked in that night! The condo was fully prepped for us and very clean. It is a great size, with plenty of room.  There are upgraded appliances and everything was even better than expected.  Will definitely be coming again next winter.  David C, May 2015
"Perfect location. A real ski in/ ski out. The owner is very friendly and she makes sure that everything is fine. The condo is clean and fully equiped. I will definitively rent the same condo again if I go back to Jay Peak. Many thanks." Jimmy C, March 2015
"Susie's place is top-notch (as a reference, we typically stay at Hiltons/Marriotts or higher end hotels when we vacation). Tastefully decorated, some nice touches like HD Flat Screen TVs, high quality kitchen utensils and equipment, comfortable beds, bathrooms that were bright and clinically clean. Susie got us all the information we needed on time. The whole transaction was painless, and everything was in order when we got there."  Milan S, December 2013
"What a great place, both the property and Park City, even in the off-season. The condo was ideally located, a no-doubt true ski-in ski-out....The owner was available and truly cares about the well-being of her guests.  We will for sure be heading back to Susie's condo if we get the chance again."  Mountainbikers, October  2014
"My daughter needed a temporary place to stay during the summer. The condo was in immaculate shape, centrally located and easily accessible. The owner is a pleasure to work with. She responds immediately by both phone and email. The area is beautiful. We may be looking for more temporary quarters in the area and we would definitely use this again. Highly recommended!"  Steven M, June 2015
"Just back this week from my first ski trip to Park City. I'm never really motivated to write reviews but everything about this condo and location was perfect. It was just as advertised and we had great flexibility and hospitality from Suzie, who provided all the information we needed to make our stay memorable. Highly recommend staying here." Brian, April 2014
"I escaped from work and came to Jay with my girlfriends for a biking/hiking trip. In addition to making the reservation process and arrival so smooth, Susie was great in pointing out the places of interest, including bike shops around to suit our needs - and the local butcher!!! Thanks for the great tips! It was very nice to relax and enjoy home-made meals after a day out. As the unit is just next to Grammy Jay, I can't wait to come back in the winter with my husband and kids!"  Lydia D, Nov 2013
"This was our second stay at this condo and it was just as good as the first."  Jim R, April 2015
This is a delightful well maintained property. The owner did everything possible to make it easy for us, and suggested picnic locations on the rivers, and places to visit on days out exploring the area. Sandy S, August 2008
"Thumbs up to Susie and her beautiful condo. We arrived last Thursday and couldn't be happier. Susie was wonderful to work with and the condo was comfortable, clean, and very roomy. My main concern is always cleanliness. The condo was perfect with a very central location. Thank you!  Andy K , October 2014
