Long before the podium, the only way to silver and gold in Park City was through a hole in the ground. But whether you were a miner in the late 19th century or an athlete in the early 21st, chances are you sought reprieve from the sweat and tears of your lifeblood in the hot springs around the Wasatch Mountains.

One such spring—The Crater—has drawn more attention than the others. A 55-foot-tall limestone rock in the shape of a beehive, The Crater is filled with clear-blue water heated by geothermal forces, and it's the unique property of Homestead Resort, where this week's Escape buys you a one-night stay for two in a Garden Room, Sundays through Thursdays ($149) or Fridays and Saturdays ($169).

You'll also get 20 percent off two resort activities—golfing or spa treatments, for example—plus 10 percent off food and beverages at Fanny's Grill, serving breakfast and lunch every day, or dinner at the recently reopened Simon's Restaurant.

Built in 1886, this Midway resort about an hour from Salt Lake, and only 30 minutes from Deer Valley and Park City resorts, comprises 19 buildings connected by a network of paths. Each unit is equipped with its own entrance, and Garden Rooms feature Sealy mattress sets with luxe satin sheets and down pillows, plus Wi-Fi and cable TV.

Book a tee time at the on-site par-72 golf course, which wends its way through more than 7,000 yards of well-manicured greens, fairways, water hazards, bunkers, and trees in the beautiful Heber Valley, surrounded by the Wasatch Mountains.

Afterward, hit the spa at Homestead's sister property, Zermatt Resort. The European-inspired experience boasts a variety of skin and body treatments, plus a dry sauna, wellness center, aromatherapy steam grotto, indoor and outdoor swimming pools, a hot tub with a cascading waterfall, and more.

Or, head straight for The Crater. You can soak, swim, snorkel, or scuba in the 90- to 96-degree water, or just take it all in via self-guided tour through underground tunnels.

Speaking of tunnels, be thankful you're not seeking asylum from the job that brought miners here more than a century ago. Instead, you get to revel in the spoils of their labor, all while relishing the hard work of the aim-to-please staff at Homestead Resort. And that's as good as gold.

  • "I recently stayed at the Homestead Resort in Midway, Utah, and was delighted by the friendly atmosphere, yummy restaurant, and indoor pool and oversized hot tub (as well as outdoor pool)."
