Company & Property Description

Nestled snugly in the heart of Deer Valley in Utah's Wasatch Mountains, the Goldener Hirsch Inn and Residences is just steps from the Silver Lake Express lift and ski access. You can also easily set off hiking, and biking on the trails, and soak in the spectacular views of Bald Eagle Mountain. The Inn features just 18 rooms, and the Residences showcases 49 newly renovated rooms, allowing us to offer you the ultimate in intimate, personalized service alongside five-star amenities--including European king beds, plush robes and slippers, and an acclaimed restaurant consistently attracting rave reviews.

Named after the Hotel Goldener Hirsch in Salzburg, Austria, the Goldener Hirsch Inn is Deer Valley’s premier small luxury hotel. It opened in 1991 by the Countess Harriet Walderdorff, the grand dame who changed Europe's sense of "Luxury accommodations" from overt extravagance to a casual, yet sophisticated style.  The hotel's décor and ambience were influenced by her introductions to the same Austrian furniture makers as the original hotel.  We love her style, and we know you will, too.

We create individual experiences for our guests, and focus on exceptional guest service and minute attention to detail. This has earned our Deer Valley luxury hotel numerous awards and ensures you feel like the VIPs you are--from the moment you arrive, and even beyond your departure.

Come and enjoy our award-winning restaurant which has earned a wide range of accolades including Best of State in 2016, “Extraordinary” from Zagat, and Top Restaurant recognitions from Condé Nast Traveler, Salt Lake Magazine, The Park Record and Salt Lake Tribune. 

Relax and refresh by the fire in the AlpenStubé after a day of skiing, hiking, mountain biking, or shopping--or retreat to the secluded third floor lounge for delicious steaming hot chocolate and decadently warm cookies.

Most recently, the Hirsch was again selected by the World Ski Awards in 2020 as the Best Ski Boutique Hotel in the United States. The Goldener Hirsch has been a AAA Four Diamond awardee since 2008. We strive to provide you the dedicated service that continue to earn these awards.
