The Retreat is a residential neighborhood community within the Wolf Creek Master Development in Eden, Utah. Eden is one of three small towns—together with Huntsville and Liberty—located in the Upper Ogden Valley.
The Retreat is approximately 65 miles northeast of SLC International Airport and 70 miles north of Park City. The Retreat at Wolf Creek Homeowners Association, Inc. (Association) is an HOA organized in 2013.
The Retreat consists of 45 lots zoned for single family homes reflecting a mountain village character and a western architectural expression. As of November 30, 2020, approximately a quarter of the homes have been completed with construction commencing on at least four new homes during 2021. The dwellings are a combination of primary residences and second homes.
The Retreat is on the north bench of the Valley, just east of Route 158, the road to Powder Mountain ski resort, which is a 20 minute drive up the road. Nordic Valley ski resort is on the west side of the Valley, a 10 minute drive away. Snow Basin ski resort is on the south side of the Valley on the other side of the Pineview Reservoir, a 35 minute drive away

The first Annual Meeting since the Developer ceded control of the Association to its Owners was held in September, 2020. Future Annual Meetings will be held during the third quarter of the calendar year. The Board may call Special Meetings of the members as needed.
Generally, all meetings are open to members, except as provided in Section 3.14 of the Bylaws, Exhibit B of the Retreat CCRs. Meetings are memorialized in written minutes, which are available to members in Governing Document Section of the website.
The Retreat is a community of homes located in close proximity on a hillside with all of the homes sites visible from the street and each other. The Retreat CCRs set forth rules governing both the design of homes and activities conducted on the sites that affect the appearance of the community. The Board strongly encourage Owners to review Articles VI-IX of the Retreat CCRs, which sets forth these rules. As necessary, the Board will advise an Owner of potential CCR noncompliance and take further corrective action in accordance with the Retreat CCRs. The Board sincerely hopes that Owners comply with the Retreat CCRs in order to promote the spirit of our community.
All lots in the Retreat have been sold by the Developer. From time to time, individual owners list their lots or home for sale. Check area real estate listings or lot for-sale signs for land availability.
An Owner may engage any qualified architect/designer and builder to construct a new home or home improvement
The Retreat expects every Owner to comply with the following documents. (Documents can be viewed in our "HOA Documents Library" below)
i. The Retreat Covenants, Conditions & Restrictions (CCRs), as amended;
ii. The Wolf Creek CCRs, as amended; and
iii. The Retreat (AC) Process, Standards & Guidelines (Retreat AC Guidelines).
An Owner’s failure to follow these documents may result in the Retreat’s Architectural Committee’s (AC) rejection of a design application and the Association’s imposition of costs, damages or fines on an Owner.
An Improvement subject to the AC design review process is any proposed remodeling or landscaping change that affects the exterior of the home. An Owner should review the CCRs and Retreat AC Guidelines and vet the proposed modifications with the AC to determine whether such modifications require AC review and approval.
The AC Guidelines envision a seven step process, that begins with a Pre-Design Meeting involving the Owner, the architect and the AC (Step 1) to discuss the proposed design, and identify potential issues under the CCRs and the Retreat AC Guidelines. The AC strongly recommends that this meeting takes place long before the Owner prepares detailed final design plans, to avoid delays and costly re-do’s because the initial design does not comply with CCRs and The Retreat AC Guidelines.
The AC not only approves the detail design plans (Steps 1-5), which an Owner submits to the County for a construction permit, but also ensures that construction (Step 6) and landscaping (Step 7) are completed in accordance with such plans and the CCRs.
An Owner formally kicks off the process by submitting a written Retreat AC Design Review Application, the design review fee and the security deposit. This typically occurs at Step 2. At the Owner’s discretion, he or she may defer remitting the security deposit for a limited time, but the AC will not approve the final design plans for a new Dwelling or home improvement until the Owner submits the security deposit, which must occur before the Owner applies to the County for a construction permit (Step 5).
For the Owner’s convenience, Word versions of the Application and the Materials and Color Detail sheet are provided in the Architectural Committee Documents Section of the website. The current fee/deposit amounts are set forth in the Schedule of Design Review Fees & Security Deposits, which also is in the same section of the website. The Application, fee and deposit should be mailed (or hand delivered) to the current Secretary of the HOA at the HOA’s mailing address
The AC works with an architect and/or building consultant to review proposed design plans. Please send the full-size drawings to our design consultant Ray Bertoldi, Bertoldi Architects, 3632 N. Wolf Creek Drive, Eden, UT 84310, and email the PDF to the Secretary at the Retreat HOA website.
Congratulations on your decision to build a home at the Retreat! You have selected a beautiful area and community for your home and the Retreat community welcomes you as our new neighbor.
This Retreat Architectural Committee Process, Standards and Guidelines document (the Retreat AC Guidelines) governing the construction of Dwellings in the Retreat has been created to provide direction to owners and their architects and builders; establish thresholds for design quality, specification of materials and colors; and promote sensitivity to each Lot’s natural features and neighboring properties.
