Huntsville, UT

The Valley House Inn is one of the most historic properties in Utah and offers limitless investment opportunities in the heart of Huntsville Town. The home was constructed in 1872 by Lars Magnus Nelson, a tinsmith, who also served as the town's first mayor. Nelson used it as a residence for him and his growing family. The Nelson family were quite wealthy and owned the first car in Huntsville, which ultimately caused Lars' death in a auto accident in 1914. At the time, the home was worth $3,600. The home was then purchased by Matelda Sprague and operated as the Valley House, a hotel and restaurant specializing in trout, chicken, steak and piping hot biscuits. Sprague would entertain guests with her true life stories of crossing the plains by ox and wagon as one of the first settlers of Utah. Since then, it has changed hands a few times but continues to house guests looking for a bed and breakfast a short 10 miles from Snowbasin. Currently the home has six bedrooms and four bathrooms with three suites available for nightly rentals. The potential exists to have five available suites with the addition of a fifth bathroom. There are two wood stoves, two gas fireplaces, and three separate furnaces. In the past year, the nightly rental occupancy rate is about 43%. The quintessential home is located on a ¾ acre open, corner lot across the street from the equally historic Shooting Star Saloon, the oldest continuously operated bar in Utah. Just around the corner, the Ogden Valley Smokehouse restaurant offers pleasant smells and expertly smoked meats. Beach access and a boat ramp is just down the road at Cemetery Point.
