The staff were extremely friendly and helpful. Room was clean and well kept. Great adventure location for fishing, wildlife watching, hiking, exploring and just relaxing. Went the second week of April and the weather was great and it was not crowded at all. Family had a great time. Definite memory maker!

Our family has been going to lake Powell for generations, now we are the "old" one's with our Grandchildren enjoying the ambiance and the wonders the lake has to offer. We always have a great time, camping, hiking, swimming, boating and most importantly building memories. We always enjoy a nice end to our vacation at the Defiance House Lodge. The... More

Family unit ended up being a double wide trailer, but was surprisingly comfortable and roomy. Floor was a little squeaky and walls were thin but a/c worked well and the location was excellent. My group stayed for one night before renting a houseboat the next morning. The main building is a bit of a walk up a hill. The restaurant... More

These accommodations and restaurant were very nice especially considering they are located in the middle of nowhere on the shores of Lake Powell. It's an Aramak motel and restaurant with average food and good accommodations.

This is a great place, overlooking Lake Powell. What you need is close. The boat ramp is within a half mile. The restaurant is also great. We were there in October this year 2014. The only thing is that breakfast don't start till 8am at this time of year. Would be nice if it was at 7am. Everyone was very... More

Stayed at the Defiance House Lodge for one night. I'm at Bullfrog Marina on Lake Powell at least once a year, but have always stayed on a boat. This was my first experience with Defiance House. It is the only hotel in Bullfrog. There is also a hotel at Ticaboo about 15 miles away and then the next closest hotel... More

We had a nice night at the Defiance House Lodge. 10 of us spent the night here prior to renting a houseboat for a week. The rooms were clean and comfortable. The restaurant staff was very accommodating seating 12 of us at a large table. The dinner food was so-so, but the breakfast quite good. It's a nice hotel for... More

Our room had a view of the lake and lots of boats and campers. We appreciated the very large towels and lots of pillows. Plenty of free Starbucks coffee products were supplied for the in-room Keurig machine. The tub was very slick and might need something to prevent slipping.

We had a first floor room with exceptional views, the rooms are bit small and in need of an update. However the beds are comfortable and there was plenty of hot water in the bathroom. Staff are very friendly and most helpful. Food in the restaurant at dinner time not so good and the buffet breakfast is really bad. The... More
