Jennifer Sutton at Guest Haus

PCM: What’s your relocation to PC story?
We relocated in August 2019 from New York City. We had lived in New York for almost 15 years, but we had a vacation home in Park City and I had been coming to ski since I was a kid. For years we had talked about moving here full-time; we were married here and had always dreamed about calling it home, especially after our two kids were born. We decided to take the leap, and it’s been one of the best decisions we ever made.

PCM: What’s your favorite thing about living in Park City?
I love the community. I always say that Park City is a small town that lives large. There is never a shortage of things to do or people to meet. Also, our easy access to the outdoors—there is something so grounding about knowing you can always get out on the trails to hike, bike, and ski.

PCM: When did you launch Guest Haus and what was your inspiration for the business?
I launched Guest Haus in September 2021. I was inspired to create a wellness bar concept; a cool spot with a high-vibes environment and healthy foods. I wanted to give people products that taste and feel good, whether they are looking to make cleaner eating a part of daily life or they had an extra fun night out and need a quick revival.

PCM: What’s new with Guest Haus for 2023?
So much! We are opening a second location inside The Market at Snowcreek. We will have all of our juices, salads, and some new healthy grab-and-go foods, along with smoothies and a couple of made-to-order items. Heading into our second year we are hyper-focused on wellness: more clean foods that we make in-house, more cleanse options, new drink products, and expanding our wellness retail selection.

PCM: What are some of your seasonal best-sellers?
We have been seeing people more interested in cleanses and juices that help boost immunity—things like our new Gut Instinct, Beet It, and Jupiter juices. They all are tailored to give you a great vitamin boost and be good for your digestive tract. Our Harvest Bowl and Kale Brussel Vegan Caesar are two great winter salads, and the Apple Cinnamon Overnight Oats have been selling like crazy.

PCM: When you’re not working, what’s your favorite way to spend a day or night in Park City?
On a bluebird winter day, I love getting out to ski with friends and family. We ski both Deer Valley and PCMR. I got engaged skiing at Empire Bowl at Deer Valley, so getting back there and having lunch slopeside is always a favorite. After skiing, we love après at the St. Regis or down on Main Street at No Name Saloon. At night, it’s dinner out and The Spur for live music.

PCM: What’s your favorite local restaurant?
Shabu! The food is always great and the atmosphere is fun.

PCM: What’s your favorite shop in town?
For wardrobe staples and jeans, it’s Cake or Panache. Minnows has a great selection of kid’s clothes. I also love popping into The Collective to check out their mix of home and apparel.

PCM: Any other favorite local shops or hidden gems?
We have an awesome selection of yoga studios in town. PC Yoga Collective and Enlighten are two of my personal favorites; the instructors and vibes are so great. Chammomile is a new women’s shop on Main Street with a cool selection. And I love J.W. Bennet for hats. Park City Nursery is a hidden gem because it is so much more than just the nursery—they have the cutest coffee shop, a beautifully curated boutique, and the flower garden.
