Mystic Hot Springs
REPORTER: Jake Kilroy



Utah is secretly the best place on earth, says photographer Renata Stone. It’s not hard to see why if you’ve ever visited the Beehive State. It's a dramatic landscape that's as alien as it is western, and it’s either drenched in sunlight or starlight. In short, IT’S AMAZING.

So when Stone's friends came to visit, she had a good number of stunning spots to take them. Her ultimate choice was Mystic Hot Springs in “middle of nowhere Monroe.” Thanks to her beautiful photography skills, you can see her and her merry band soaking in outdoor tubs on what looks like another planet. It’s a good life when you have friends in the right places—and Utah’s definitely one of them.

Pack up all your chunky knit sweaters and snow gear because you and your squad aren’t going to want to miss a trip to the slopes this year!  This 1889 small town schoolhouse has been gutted and renovated to the gills.  Expect lots of airy white space, bright sunlight, reclaimed wood floors, and beds so comfy it’s like you’re sleeping in a cloud.  We’d say this is the perfect girls trip for the skiing and snowboarding set, but you might not even want to leave the hotel!

Get lost With Us is a group of dreamers and gypsetters. A group of Walking talking guidebooks and world wanderers.The cast of characters? Six creatives, a toddler and three doggies. They are photographers, cinematographers, musicians and designers; professionals in the creative arts and event industry. Last year they embarked on a road trip adventure. They hopped in a camper and drove their way through the countryside, weaving in and out of the bucolic patchwork of rolling fields and serene desert landscapes. One of their stops was at brand new venue report member, Moab Under Canvas. This was the first week that Moab Under Canvas was opening their canvas safari tent and teepee doors for starry night adventures. We were so excited to have this creative crew document their glamping gathering and experience at this brand new hotspot.

The Report

Calling all students! Put your pencils down and escape to a schoolhouse where you won't be tested on anything but your relaxation and drinking skills. No we are not talking about college, we are talking about this stunning downtown Park City boutique hotel and iconic historic landmark. Washington Schoolhouse was built as a school in 1889 and has now graduated to a new level of luxury. After the completion of a total interior renovation (think gutted to the studs), this fabulously preserved 1889 limestone gem reopened in December 2011.  There are twelve spectacular rooms/suites for you and your crew to rest your heads at night, reclaimed oak barn wood floors and mountain ice-white marble in the baths. Historic living space with 16ft ceilings, roaring fires, chic ski lounge, heated pool, wine, trees and stars. This is not like any school we have ever been to.

The furnishings you ask? The schoolhouse has a curated collection of European antiques, vintage modern paintings, crystal chandeliers, silver flatware and serving pieces. They even took a little time to create a few custom pieces of their own. You really won't need to do much decorating for an event here. Just bring your trapper keepers, pencil pouches and super chic party dress.

HOW WILL MY GUESTS GET HERE?: Located in the heart of breathtaking Park City, Utah, just 35 minutes from Salt Lake City International Airport.
