Ah...ZMR. Loved it and already planning a return trip.
To get the bad out of the way early- its out of the way (see below for "The Good"), Internet reception depends on cabin, and pathways to the cabins and the cabin numbers are not well lit. (Bring a flashlight). Food options only include the restaurant (see "The Good") and the bathrooms can be a little cold. The fridge buzzes a little.
Now forget all that- to "the good." If you want to wake up to deer in your backyard in the morning and buffalo in the pasture across your front yard..this is your place. If you want to watch the sunset over the canyons and then sit at your firepit later and look up at a sky full of stars...this is your place. If you'd like a "cabin" with vaulted ceilings, a jetted tub, a dual head shower, a fireplace, a (small) kitchen, and hardwood floors.. this is your place. If you want to get way out of the way, but still be within an hour of Bryce and 15 minutes from Zion...you get it. No, ZMR is not perfect. I didn't give it 5 stars for a reason. But if you classify your ranch/cabin by if you can get internet access ZMR isn't for you. Remember: these are cabins, on a ranch. Not a hotel. The serene, natural setting, the unique-ness and the overall quality were outstanding.
I've reviewed the restaurant seperately- which I thoroughly enoyed.. If you want cheap- a simple fix is to grab some food to make in your kitchen on your way into ZMR (Kanab or Hurricane.) You'll have a hot plate with 2 burners, a microwave, a coffee maker and a good variety of silverware.
We extended our trip by a day- all we could manage with work. But we're already planning a spring return trip. I almost hate to review ZMR- I want to keep it my secret (but I've withheld which cabin we stayed in just in case). ZMR has ruined the idea of a "cabin" for me- I don't have a choice but to go back. You can't find this anywhere else.
