Duchesne County has become a popular recreation spot. Starvation Reservoir is great for fishing and all kinds of water activities, and the surrounding area offers plenty of other outdoor fun.

For Neil Stevens, a builder and land developer, Duchesne has become a permanent home. The area lured him away from Salt Lake several years ago. Now, he's offering others a chance to enjoy it through ownership in one of three ideal vacation condominiums he has built in downtown Duchesne. Neil told me he built the condos with the outdoor recreational kind of person in mind. After having developed subdivisions in Duchesne and Wasatch counties and selling more than a 1,000 acres of mountain properties, Neil has learned that some of his clients just didn't want a cabin in the mountains. What they really wanted, he said, is secure and comfortable living accommodations with sizable storage capacity within minutes of the mountains and lakes. When their vacation is over, they simple lock up, and they don't have to worry about their belongings, including their boat or recreation vehicles.

So Neil built his Starvation Condos in Duchesne to do just that. They include plenty of space, the smallest having two bedrooms and two baths. Plus each condo includes a 480-square-foot super garage with a 10- by 12-foot door and plumbing for washing a boat or any kind of RV. And the condos start at less than $80,000.

Neil said now residents along the Wasatch Front can drive a short two hours to Duchesne, and for the first time buy a condo for both them and their boat or RVs in a secure convenient location at prices well below what they would pay on the Wasatch Front. He said the Starvation Condominiums will serve as a launching pad for people to enjoy the four season recreational possibilities Duchesne County has to offer, and I certainly agree.
