My boyfriend and I needed an escape and headed west for a few days... we found Cedar Breaks Lodge and Brian Head through my parents' time share and are glad we visited the area.
The Cedar Breaks Lodge exceeded our expectations. The 1-bedroom villa had plenty of space, especially for just two people, and the fireplaces in both rooms were a nice touch (I agree with other reviews that noted that the fireplaces really dried the place out.... a week later and I'm still a little chapped, but that's a minor concern). I slept like a rock every night we were there, which was a testiment to both the comfort of the beds and the relative quiet of the lodge (and maybe my post-skiing exhaustion played a role). We appreciated the TVs and the DVD player in the living room, although the TVs are quite small.
Probably my favorite part of the lodge was the pool and hot tubs, which felt amazing after our days of hiking and skiing/ snowboarding. Every employee we encountered was extremely nice, especially the restaurant employees. The cafe, by the way, was quite good, especially for breakfast.
Brian Head itself is a charming little town and the skiing was quite enjoyable. If you're looking for nightlife or bright lights, you're not going to find it in Brian Head, but we wanted to chill out for a few days. We rented skiis from Georg's for a very good price, and enjoyed being able to ski all day without waiting in a single lift line. Zion National Park is only an hour and a half away and was breathtaking.
One suggestion-- if you want groceries, stop in Cedar City before making your way up the mountain. There are hardly any grocery options in Brian Head or in Parowan at the bottom of the hill. The road up to Brian Head is 12 miles and exceedingly windy with multiple switchbacks. It wasn't a drive I particularly enjoyed and would have preferred to save the time and effort of having to drive back down to Cedar City after checking in.
Overall, a very pleasant trip!
