The Boulder Mountain Guest Ranch is located off the famous Highway 12 on Hell's Backbone Road between Capitol Reef and Bryce Canyon. We are a rustic and quaint lodge with cabins and luxury camping available as well. We have an onsite restaurant called the Sweetwater Kitchen, named after the lovely creek that runs through our property. Hell's Last Outpost is our general store where you can enjoy a cold beverage, trail maps, and art from local artists. We have an onsite hike to a beautiful waterfall where you can enjoy a nice picnic lunch from the Sweetwater Kitchen. All of our rooms are unique to themselves, displaying art of the local canyon country. Take a walk through our garden where you will see your dinner growing for that evening and enjoy a nice hot shower in our living solar shower made from growing willows. Don't forget to call ahead for guide outfitting and horseback riding!

My husband and I had a wonderful stay at the guest ranch. We booked 1 night in the Cowboy Tent and would have stayed much longer. The tent had great ventilation and it was delightful to wake up to the sounds of crickets and an occasional rooster.It also had an excellent heater,

Unfortunately, our reservation was double-booked due to third-party issues. I would not have known this, if I didn't call to confirm our check-in time. The Ranch called me back directly and we were given an "upgrade" to stay in their studio apartment. As soon as we arrive,

I cannot understand how people can be so enthusiast about this place… As soon as we arrived, payment immediately ... and then a nice "surprise"... As you can see from the photos attached, our room was overlooking the restaurant …. And We were the view of those who were having a

This place is beautiful and the owners/employees are incredibly friendly. Unfortunately that's the end of the high points. The dining room was not open while we were there. We were offered frozen homemade burritos we could microwave for $9 a piece. We stayed in the cowboy tent

No, we do leave hairdryers in the rooms. However, the front desk has a few on hand.

I stayed in the cowboy tent. Didn't need towels there. You'll love it!

"The cowboy tent is great!"
"Avoid the room at the lower floor!"
"Cabins are the most ideal for this setting."
"Cabin 3 was perfect for our family with 6 people and could comfortably fit 8 as well."
"Cabin 2 is a handicap accessible room, but the only noticeable difference is the adjacent wheelchair ramp (in addition to stairs in front)."
