Can't beat this place. Even though it is not quite in Zion National Park you are so close to the entrance. The cottages are amazing and modern. We had the 2 bd but they also have a futon in the living room and some extra sleeping pads for those that don't want to share the king beds in each bedroom.... More

We were unable to obtain an additional night lodging in Zion or Bryce so booked this accommodation on the recommendation of National Park Reservations. (We loved both lodges at the parks.) First the website view of the location is deceptive, We had a meadow cabin with an excellent view of the highway which has a lot of traffic until Zion... More

I stayed here for 3 nights in July 2014. It is located about 3 miles outside the east entrance to Zion and is higher in altitude (cooler) than the main town of Springdale at the south entrance. It takes about 25 minutes to drive to the main part of the park near the lodge but the drive in is absolutely... More

My daughter and I take a trip every year. We chose a trip to Zion and Lake Powell. We stayed at Zion Mountain Ranch for 3 nights in the Buffalo Lodge Cabin. I was very impressed with their attention to detail. No phones in the rooms to call the front desk, but there was no need! The quality of the... More

We heard about this place from a travel article in our local newspaper. We loved the idea of staying at a place with an actual buffalo herd. I researched the website and the rooms and the price was a little more than we would have liked for the larger cabins. We opted for the Buffalo Vista room. The lodge was... More

We stayed here with my sis and her husband 6/2014. It is in a very pretty location on the east side of Zion National Park. We booked in January 2014 and looked forward to getting here. Pros:Beautiful surroundings with canyon views. Enjoyable walk around the ranch. 10 minutes from Mount Carmel to the east. Decent diner there you can eat... More

This is a very nice property, with comfortable cabins, a good restaurant on-site, and plenty of critters running around to amuse you and your children. A large heard of buffalo is in residence, along with rabbits, chickens and ducks. Just be sure to look at a map and understand that this ranch is not really in the heart of Zion... More

It was great to be there for a couple of days. You walk out in the morning to see bison roaming in the pasture -- and they also have horses, and miniature ponies in the ranch in addition to the wild curious rabbits that come by. Even though the "lodges" are set close to each other, you don't see much... More

We had a blast at Zion Mountain Ranch located jut a few miles outside Zions National Park, also it is only about an hour to Bryce Canyon and not to far from Grand Canyon. We had a group of 6 and got a large cabin that slept 9. It had amazing vistas of the mountains and down valley views.
