It would be impossible to pick a favorite season at Victory Ranch. Whether it’s warm and sunny or cool and breezy, it’s a recreational playground for adults and kids alike. Each season accentuates a different set of activities, features and magnificent views of Utah’s terrain. Focusing on the current season, here are some of our favorite fall adventures at Victory Ranch.
Waiting for you just beyond your doorstep are more than 20 miles of well-maintained trails, masterfully designed and built by Alpine Trails — a premier trail builder in and around Park City for more than two decades. The trails are great for all fitness levels and activities, from a casual wilderness walk to a heart-pumping, uphill run. Taking it slow? Be on the lookout for birds, like the mighty Golden Eagle.
2. Mountain Biking
A more exciting way to experience the miles of backcountry trails is via mountain bike. Don’t own a mountain bike? We offer complimentary mountain bikes and helmets for adults and kids, including Fat Bikes for a smoother, more adaptable ride. Check out Kamloop Trail for a mild 3% incline or the Fremont Trail for 5–7% inclines. The work is worth the reward: expansive, 360º vistas of the Uinta and Wasatch Mountains, Kamas Valley and the entirety of Victory Ranch. Unbelievably beautiful when lit up by fall colors of red, orange and yellow.
3. Yurt Camping
Yurt camping in the backcountry is a cross between literal backyard camping and a remote wilderness adventure — with all the luxuries of home. The yurts are accessible by foot, bike or via one of our 4×4 Polaris Rangers (more on those below). Equipped with electricity and cozy beds, Victory Ranch yurts are spacious enough for the whole family. Just outside, you’ll find outdoor seating, fire pits and activities like horseshoes. Drift off to sleep to serene wilderness sounds, like the nearby whispering stream. Best of all, one of our private chefs can prepare a home-cooked dinner or breakfast for you on site.
4. 4×4 Ranger Adventures
Looking for extreme adventure, sans the physical workout? Hop into one of our 4×4 Polaris Rangers for an off-roading tour of the backcountry. It’s not uncommon to spot moose, elk, deer and rare species of birds while rolling through the mountains and valleys. For new homeowners, we recommend a tour with one of our wilderness guides to pick their brain about the area and its native wildlife.
Feeling right at home comes from the little things. Subtle, thoughtful details. Cozy, rustic finishes and furnishings. Neutral hues that complement an inrush of natural light. Lucky enough, our three cabin homes in The Residence Club collection check off every box — all thanks to Chicago-based interior design firm Studio K Creative. With the renowned firm’s help, we brought to life three stylish retreats that pair the best in lived-in comfort and effortless, sophisticated flair. Step inside below.
Warm, Contemporary Aesthetic
Each Residence Club cabin comes fully appointed in a modern-meets-rustic mountain aesthetic, complementary to the expansive landscape just beyond. In an interview with Karen Herold, Alicia Kelly and Alana Ratner of Studio K, the designers put their finger on the overall vision: “We were inspired by architectural details, clean lines and high contrast materials. We also looked at high-end fabrics and menswear, as well as plaids, for inspiration.” Within each cabin, discover the perfect balance between new and vintage, creating the idyllic home away from home.
Details Inspired by Nature
Studio K Creative looked outward to find inspiration for what lies within. Each cabin — from the brand new Kingfisher to both The Starling and The Kestrel — features solid hardwood floors and ceilings, as well as custom wood wall paneling sourced locally in Kamas. The designers also used a wide array of natural materials, including limestone and quartzite, to complement earthy accents like wool rugs and sisal wall coverings.
Large Outdoor Living Spaces
While the cabin interiors are seemingly out of a magazine, among the most coveted spaces is that outside. Complete with Ipe Brazilian walnut patio decking and weathered ash wood exteriors, the patio is the perfect place to entertain, relax or zen out — any time of day, any day of the year. A seven-person hot tub, fire pit and built-in bench seating and a spacious dining area offer the ultimate setting to reconnect with one another, soak up the surrounding natural beauty and revel in epic views of the Juniper Draw.
Renowned for designing Victory Ranch’s mountain modern clubhouses and dining venues, as well as countless high-end restaurants, bars and luxury residences around the country, Studio K Creative strove to ensure that everyone in the family has a spot to make their own at The Residence Club. But the best way to experience it? We encourage you to see the cabins for yourself. Contact us today and make your effortless getaway to The Residence Club.
We’re thrilled to introduce the newest and largest cabin home in our collection at The Residence Club — The Kingfisher, a five-bedroom cabin slated for completion in December 2021. Designed to emulate Victory Ranch’s Expanded Juniper Cabin, The Kingfisher is the perfect mountain retreat for families seeking the very best in contemporary design, upscale comforts and, of course, effortless homeownership. With more space than The Kestrel and The Starling thanks to two more bedrooms and an additional patio and living room, The Kingfisher is the ultimate new offering to realize the multigenerational vacation home of your dreams. Take an exclusive first look inside below.
Spacious, Fully-Appointed Interiors
With 3,878 square feet of indoor/outdoor living space and the ability to sleep 12, The Kingfisher is an idyllic retreat for those looking to host friends and family for a quintessential Victory Ranch getaway. On the main level, a large great room showcases vaulted ceilings, a fireplace and glass sliding doors that open to the exterior, while the state-of-the-art kitchen comes fully equipped with Wolf and Sub-Zero appliances, as well as all cookware and baking essentials — which means no more late-night escapades to the store.
Inspired Studio K Design
We tasked one of the country’s leading design studios, Studio K Creative, with creating The Kingfisher’s inspired interior and exterior spaces — just as they impeccably did for The Kestrel and The Starling. The cabin comes beautifully decorated in a mountain modern aesthetic, pairing comfort with a chic contemporary feel, offering families the most stylish — and maintenance-free — home away from home.
Spaces & Places for Everyone in the Family
Complete with five bedrooms, The Kingfisher combines everything you love about the sought-after Expanded Juniper Cabin at Victory Ranch with all the hassle-free benefits of owning a Residence Club cabin. First, the main suite features a large private deck and spa-like bath, decked out with heated floors and all the luxe toiletries you expect from a world-class hotel. The junior suite on the third level offers a more private space along with a deck and deluxe bathroom, while two large en suite bedrooms on the first level offer a king bed in one and a queen bed in the other. Lastly, an additional bedroom on the first level has two full beds for the little ones or guests.
The Ultimate in Outdoor Living
The Kingfisher cabin features both an upper- and lower-level patio, complete with beautiful Ipe Brazilian walnut patio decking. The large patio on the main level has a Weber BBQ and an expansive dining area with ample seating and a cutting-edge speaker system, while the lower patio is host to a fire pit and seven-person hot tub. Situated just above the river with breathtaking mountain and golf course views, The Kingfisher offers a picture-perfect setting to host effortless dinner parties, relax with a glass of wine and take in the views that the Ranch is renowned for.
