Under the Lindens - Gay Owned Salt Lake City Bed & Breakfast

Under The Lindens Bed & Breakfast is a historic home (recently listed in the National Historic Register) and was originally built in 1903. The house was the home of Lewis Ramsey, a well-known Mormon painter.

We’ve renovated the property, keeping the original historic style, and Under the Lindens now offers four full suites.

Each suite has a private entrance, living room including a cozy fireplace, sleeping area with a queen bed, ceiling fan, private bathroom, full kitchen, Television, VCR & DVD Player, phone/fax line, parking, and a laundry room, deck and hot tub.

Our suites exemplify an attention to detail, with antique furnishings, marble, granite and tile counters, hardwood and tile flooring, and really comfortable beds. We don’t have any theme rooms, just refined, simple, clean decor that complements the historic nature of Under the Lindens Bed & Breakfast.

Quick Escapes for Business Travelers in Salt Lake City

Author: , February 27th, 2013

Gay Travel Salt Lake CityAs far as “small” big cities go, Salt Lake City has a lot of appeal. A lot of common annoyances found in booming metropolises are either diminished or vanquished altogether here, making it a highly enjoyable locale to end up in on business.

It’s also a ridiculously great time of the year to visit, with temperatures inching milder each day and snow-capped peaks still glistening. In an effort to get you outside of the boardroom and into the wilds of Utah, we’re offering up two restaurants, three attractions, and one bar that you can hit with just a few extra hours between meetings.

EAT: Conveniently, the Arrow Press Square Shopping Center is located directly adjacent to the (awesomely named) Salt Palace Convention Center. There, you’ll find quite a few local eats, but Caffe Molise is one that shouldn’t be missed. Italian is the specialty, but it’s a pretty broad definition that includes way more than just soups and pasta. Being as close as it is, it’s an easy spot to head for a quick lunch or an early dinner.

Sexy in Salt Lake City

Author: , February 10th, 2012

Gay Travel Salt Lake City“Try the AMF,” the lad next to me says while pushing to get a little closer to the bar.

“The what?”

“AMF,” he repeats, “it’s what everybody here drinks.”

“Right then,” I shout to the bartender behind the counter, “one AMF please. Whatever that is.”

Clearly I must have looked even more helpless than I felt to elicit such eager help from a stranger. Then again it isn’t the first time on this trip that a local’s interest levels suddenly perk up after he notices my English tones. For many Americans a foreign accent appears to be as irresistible as catnip.

Is Salt Lake City Really That Gay?

Author: , January 13th, 2012

Gay Salt Lake CityWe’re pretty danged gay, according to venerable LGBT news and entertainment magazine The Advocate. A recent article in The Advocate’s travel section ranks Salt Lake City at No. 1 among the “gayest” cities in the U.S. And, needless to say, we are all of us duly flattered.

Undoubtedly, the convention & visitors bureau must be eager to start printing up “Most Fabulous Snow on Earth!” bumper stickers.

We were somehow ranked well ahead of such gay-magnet communities as Atlanta and Seattle based on criteria the author Matthew Breed admits are “decidedly subjective.” SLC received scores for our nude yoga classes, softball teams, International Mr. Leather semifinalists and certain music events. These were tallied up and the resulting score divided by the city’s population.

In fact, SLC’s gay quotient may have been underestimated: As Rosemary Winters pointed out in The Trib, the existence of Councilman Stan Penfold (in America, politicians are never just gay, but “openly gay” — in other words, he isn’t only merely gay, but really quite sincerely gay), as well as a city ordinance prohibiting discrimination based on gender identity or sexual orientation, should have earned us extra points.

The Advocate Calls Salt Lake City the Top Gay City for 2012

Author: , January 12th, 2012

Gay Salt Lake CityThe truth can now be told — despite annual legislative skirmishes, entrenched LDS views (and a state constitutional amendment) against same-sex marriage, and church-endorsed programs to change gay men into straight ones — Salt Lake City is still a great place to be gay. It is so great, in fact, that the nation’s oldest continuing LGBT publication, The Advocate, ranked Salt Lake No. 1 in its recent “Gayest Cities in America 2012” list, beating out Seattle and San Francisco, for Pete’s sake.

The article acknowledges that few American cities can beat out established big-city hot spots. This is a list where a great scene exists in “less-expected” locales. And it’s not scientific, like these findings of The Gay and Lesbian Atlas are, (which excludes Salt Lake City and Utah).

But we’ll take The Advocate’s word for it. Of Salt Lake City, the article states: “While those unfamiliar with the Beehive State are likely to conjure images of the Mormon Tabernacle Choir, far-less-oppressive-than-it-used-to-be Salt Lake City has earned its queer cred.

Salt Lake City Has The Men

Author: , November 20th, 2011

Gay Utah TravelNestled along the foot of the grand Wasatch Mountain range, Salt Lake City is a clean, safe and exciting year-round destination. It’s the perfect place for outdoor enthusiasts, which in Salt Lake City includes just about everyone. For those wanting to hit the town after a day up the canyon, Utah boys are equally keyed up for some fun.

As the world headquarters of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, Salt Lake City is a regional hub for commerce, banking, health care and, of course, members of the LDS Church. When young boys come out of the closet and venture away from their Idaho farms or Wyoming ranches, they point their pickup trucks to Salt Lake City, a safe refuge to find community and education. Not to mention those Mormon missionaries we’ve all fantasized about.

Yes, the city has a large proportion of Mormons. I know what you’re thinking. No alcohol. No coffee. Crazy polygamists marrying their nieces. And especially Proposition 8, when the church contributed a large amount of the money that was used to help pass California’s same-sex marriage ban. Think again. Recently noted as having the nation’s third-largest number of gay couples per capita, Salt Lake City has a vibrant and generally well-received LGBT community.
