The Sundance Resort has 96 guestrooms and suites along with 10 mountain homes, all artfully tucked away in small clusters around the property. There’s nothing cookie cutter-like about this property, so each unit and home are a little different. Because Redford’s goal is to minimize impact on the landscape, some of the units have more steps than others. If you have toddlers or others in your party who might have concerns with steps, ask for accommodations in either the Pines or Mandan cottages. The River Run cabins, while beautifully tucked up against a creek bank, have more steps than others.
Each unit is quite rustic and decorated with many of the items found in the Sundance catalogue. Only the standard rooms do not have fireplaces. The Mountain Loft Suites are fun for kids who may enjoy climbing a ladder to the loft for their bedroom. There’s no additional charge for cribs, but a $15 per night charge for rollaway beds applies.
The spa offers a special “younger set” menu that includes mini-facials and massages. The Sundance Herbal Scrub and Massage is a real treat for adults.
And each night, enjoy a movie at the Screening Room, one of the venues used for the Sundance Film Festival. The selection varies greatly, as Sundance aims to introduce new artists to the public, but many weekends, it will be a Robert Redford film festival.

We’ve lived in Utah for ten years and have visited Sundance dozens of times to eat or bike or hike. Finally tried the zipline tour as a last-day-of-summer treat for our daughter and it’s an amazing treat. Hard to believe we waited so long to try it. Can’t wait to do it again, maybe the next full moon?
We visited the Sundance resort while we were in Utah. We took the scenic ski lift ride and walked through the village. Robert Redford must have borrowed the idea from the resort because “a River runs through it” lol. The lift ride was peaceful and relaxing but, I have to warn everyone, it goes very slow. My daughter and I actually got sunburned on the way up. There were great views of the mountains, mountain bike trails, and the valleys east and west of the peak. and the zip liners fly down the mountain so fast they sound like jets! The shops/village are very nice. A great place to visit and check out.
