We stayed here in a cabin for 5 nights, using the ranch as a base to explore the area (Zion, Bryce, Grand Canyon etc) and it fitted the bill perfectly. The ranch has achieved a great balance, it has enough amenities for any kind of traveller while still keeping a wilderness feel and atmosphere to the place. Our cabin was... More

We stopped here to camp for a night on our way over to Bryce Canyon and we couldn't have been happier. The bathrooms were clean and the shower water was hot which was much needed after 2 days of hiking. They also have a great pool and hot tub area right with the bathrooms that was nice to enjoy for...

We had a wonderful couple nights at this awesome place April a couple years ago. We absolutely plan on returning when we go back out west. While it was just two of us the cabin we stayed in could have slept 4-5 people easily. The cabin was spacious and well equipped and anything we needed could be purchased at the... More

We went with a bunch of couples and their kiddos and had a blast. We stayed in Western Wagons which are little wood sheds that look like wagons and have a door that locks, beds for four (one is a queen and two are twin beds), a night table, and a flashlight. There is a small window on the wagon... More

This place is located near the East Entrance to Zion National Park, the best entrance. Every day you are immersed in the beauty of Zion in the morning when you enter the park and in the evening when you return. So number one great thing about this place is that it's at the east entrance. The accommodations are fitting to... More

Avoid staying in Wagons during Fall and Winter as it gets extremely cold inside. There is no heating in the wagons. Except wagon all other rooms/houses are heated. The resort is in a nice location 30 minutes drive from Zion. Staff is very friendly.

Very clean, we were found at by hostess coming in with hiking gear still on but there's not much you can do when your so far out. We had the sweetest little blonde hostess we both just had a drink and treats. He had a beer on tap, excellent. And I had a glass of wine. He had nachos and... More

Four of us recently stayed in the cute Cowboy Cabins in the "shoulder" season, we loved it! The cabin was cute, heater was lacking slightly, but we thought it added to the experience so didn't complain. Bring extra sleeping bags (if enjoying in fall). The bathrooms and showers were very close, large, super clean, warm and maintained. I really cant... More

The people were friendly and the views and locations were so close to Zion! We saw well over 60 deer groups of turkeys and some kind of weird birds. Cabins are cozy and the food was great. The breakfast in the morning was self serve and was perfect. Waffles, bacon, cereal and so much more.

We were looking to be close to Zion National park, without breaking the bank. The wagon was comfortable and clean, and the price included one of the best breakfast buffets I have ever seen. We appreciated the grills at the wagon as we shared a meal with our wonderful neighbors. We appreciated wifi at our wagon, even though there is... More
