We've been coming to Southern Utah regularly since 1996 and we just love it. We've traveled across the U.S. and overseas and it's hard to find anything as beautiful as this area.
Jane & Robert purchased this house in 2005
We bought The Orchard in 2005 and spent a lot of time and effort turning it into a unique, one-of-a-kind getaway in the middle of a peaceful boutique orchard. (Our fruit is served in fine cuisine at the Las Vegas restaurants of Mario Batali, one of the world's great chefs.)
We go out of our way to ensure that our guests have a terrific experience including little things like providing a complimentary jar of exquisite jam made from our apricots, figs and other fruit.
Everyone who has visited The Orchard loves it and hates leaving. And isn't that the point of a vacation, to fall in love with your surroundings?
Come to Southern Utah. Relax at The Orchard. We're confident you'll love it as much as we do!
Peaceful, fully furnished home settled in a boutique orchard. EVERYTHING IS INCLUDED except for your food & beverages!
Big, beautiful & wonderful were adjectivies shared by all. We especially loved the orchard since our friends from Taiwan area avid organic eaters. We tried some of the peaches, almonds, grapes & enjoyed knowing they’re all organic. Also tried some mint & other herbs after a good rinse.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here at “The Orchard.” We visited Zion, Bryce & the North Rim of the Grand Canyon…absolutely fantastic.
Thank you Robert & Jane for letting us experience the joy of living in your vacation home. It was a magical time for us & we have pictures & memories to treasure for the rest of our lives.
My husband and I came with two other couples. The kitchen was well equipped for the cooking we did. We had enough space to spread out and relax. The deck was awesome for enjoying the beautiful blooming trees and the warm spring weather. It was a short drive to Zion. It was a great house to come home to after a day of sightseeing in the area. The hot tub was nice to soak in.
The Orchard is a charming, spacious house with convenient access to Zion N.P. It was very clean, and a comfortable stay for our extended family of 8. The kids had plenty of movies and games available, but I think the best part for them was the yard to explore. They had a great time in the beautiful and immaculately kept yard/ orchard. We cooked all of our meals there except for one during our three day stay. All kitchen appliances worked excellently; the kitchen was large enough to easily accommodate a couple of people working in at one time, with plenty of plates, cups, etc. We thoroughly enjoyed eating our dinners off the back porch while watching the sunset. All bedrooms are large and easily fit our troop of three children and five adults. The bathrooms were all very clean and we never ran out of hot water for our showers. The owners were very easy to reach and wanted to make sure that our stay was going to comfortable. I would highly recommend The Orchard to anyone going to Zion N.P. or southwest Utah, and plan on staying there in the future if our group goes to the region again.
We needed a place to stay for the Zion Half marathon, and found this beautiful home in La Verkin. We'd never heard of the town, but it is very convenient to Zion, and it's a cute little town filled with friendly people. When we began planning our trip, there were going to be 7 of us, and before long our group had shrunk to 4, so we had all kinds of room to spread out in the house. The house was comfortable, clean, and had a very large and well stocked kitchen. It was nice finding spices and condiments, not all rental homes offer those. The jam and fruit bread waiting for us upon arrival was a very nice little bonus! The house had games, movies, and a ton of information on local places to go and activities, as well as information on all of the parks. I'd love to see the yard when the trees are blooming, but the daffodils had started to bloom, and the trees had started to bud. Communication with the property owners was always pleasant, they were very helpful and attentive. We would definitely recommend The Orchard for anyone visiting the area, and we are hoping to get back there soon!
The Orchard was exactly what we expected from the description. It was spacious, very clean, quiet, well stocked with amenities and convenient to Zion National Park (the hike to Angels Landing is spectacular). The owners provided very helpful detailed, comprehensive information on the home and the surrounding area.
Who ever heard of La Verkin is what my adult children asked when I told them that's where we were going for Thanksgiving. What a great location it was - close to Zion National Park without the crowds. We were a group of 8 adults and 1 dog and the home never felt crowded. Kitchen was perfectly stocked to cook a Thanksgiving meal, bedrooms are large and comfortable and 3 bathrooms essential for a large group. Fenced yard for dogs and a wonderful deck with exquisite sunrise and sunset views. Walking in the neighborhood was a treat, every driver waved and people stopped to say hello. Horses, goats, cows, chickens, and 2 foals chasing each other in a neighboring pasture were a delight for us city folk to see.
Owners attentive and helpful from start to finish. I'm hoping to make this a Thanksgiving tradition now that we know where La Verkin is.
There were seven in our group and The Orchard was perfect for us. Very spacious and clean. We toured four nearby national parks and enjoyed walking around La Verkin. It is scenic, peaceful and comfortable. Good grocery stores nearby. Kitchen is well equipped for eating in. The deck makes every outdoor meal a treat.
So many activities and sights. Just about anything you can imagine and then some! Hiking, Biking, Boating, Kayaking, ATV trails, Fishing, Golf, Basketball Court, Skiing (Downhill, Snowboard, Cross Country), Snowmobiling, Wildlife Viewing, Shopping, Movie Theaters, Restaurants. ALL OF THIS IS MINUTES FROM 'THE ORCHARD.'
