Check out Helper, Utah's historic guest houses

Staying a night or two in Helper's historic buildings is one of the highlights of a trip to Utah's newest vacation spot.

  • It's truly like going back in time.

I stayed in the Key Suites vacation rental, formerly KeyBank. It's one of several buildings beautifully rehabilitated by Gary and Malarie DeVincent.

  • The couple is also behind rentals at the historic Sinclair station and the Lincoln Hotel.
  • See Gary's collection of antique motorcycles at the Vintage Motor Company and Corvettes-in-progress in the working garage next door.

Details: The rooms are appointed with extreme care — and they're affordable — mostly $80 to $100 per night, with about $60 to $75 in fees.

What's next: Malarie, who grew up in Carbon County, says the family is renovating the old Newhouse Hotel with hopes of opening in 2024.
