Guestbook comments from the owner
Worked so great as a gathering spot for the wedding we came down for. It was close to every activity we had planned. Yet when we all did our own thing it was close for that too.



But the best thing was having my whole familky together in one place. And just being a family, could to that here. Thank you.

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!

IT'S A WINNER!!

IT'S A WINNER!!
  • 5 of 5
With our family scattered from the East Coast to the West Coast, we first stayed in this vacation home 3 years ago. And so, when we decided again this year that it was time for another reunion, this is the ONLY destination we considered. Everything about it is/was perfect for our group of 10. As a matter of fact, based on our two stays here, I can imagine the possibility of "re-upping" yet again sometime in the future.

MOUNTAIN BIKE MECCA

  • 5 of 5
This is our second stay at this beautiful home. This property is a garden paradise in La Verkin, Utah. We stayed for 6 nights and rode our mountain bikes for 7 days typically doing one morning ride and one afternoon ride. We also hiked up Angel’s Landing in nearby Zion National Park. Most days we returned to the Orchard for lunch.

The home is well stocked and in a quiet neighborhood. The home easily accommodated our large group with each person having their own bed. The hot tub is an added benefit which we made frequent use of at the end of each day’s ride. The early May weather allowed us to make use of the outdoor deck that overlooks the huge backyard.

The home is perfect for mountain bikers. We packed our lunch for an all day trip to Gooseberry which is less than one hour away. We also made a day trip to Red Canyon near Bryce to ride the famous Thunder Mountain trail. Other trails we rode included Little Creek, Gander, JEM, Gould Rim, Hurricane Rim, Zen and Church Rock. Even with 7 days of riding we still did not hit all the major mountain bike trails in the area. Over the Edge Bike shop is close by in Hurricane. We highly recommend the shop for all the quick and relatively inexpensive repairs we needed during our stay.

The owners were very attentive to our needs. We plan to return soon.

A BIRTHDAY GET TOGETHER

  • 5 of 5
The Orchard was the perfect spot to celebrate my wife’s birthday with our adult children and their spouses. The house is spacious and the gardens are beautiful. The property is convenient to Zion and Bryce. After many hours of hiking it was nice to relax on the deck before preparing dinner in the very well equipped kitchen. The property is very clean and well maintained, and the owner was very attentive before, during, and after our stay. The jam and fruit bread upon arrival was a very nice touch!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your kind words. We go to great lengths in our goal to provide an excellent experience. The grounds are, indeed, unique: no other vacation rental in the region is settled upon a boutique, working orchard. And our location really is fantastic and central to everything guests want and need.

HOME IS EXACTLY AS DESCRIBED

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I decided to take a spontaneous trip to Zion. I was lucky enough to find a home that was available for 4 days. "The Orchard" is truly amazing. While it was only 2 of us and 2 dogs we enjoyed every bedroom. We played goldilocks and tried different beds in each room just for fun. The home has a lot of room for large groups. The kitchen is amazing. They had everything we needed. The only items we had to supply was the food. DVDs and games were provided. They even had a dog pillow and toys for the pups.
There is a large rose garden that adds to the beauty. Our dogs loved the big yard. It was like living in a park everyday (at least in their minds). I highly recommend "The Orchard".

GREAT FAMILY STAY AT THE ORCHARD

  • 5 of 5
Great property to check out all the parks. Easy access to hiking and National Parks with Zion's 20-25 minutes away. Excellent mountain biking within minutes of the Orchard. And with St. George about 20 minutes in the other direction you can still get to any city type activities you need easily.

House was well stocked with anything you would need for a week long stay. Hot tub was a great amenity after any of the long days of hiking or biking. Enough movies and games to have some fun with the kids at night after everyone had relaxed and the kitchen had everything needed to produce meals.

Being in an orchard was fun and it was relaxing to walk around a little in the morning with a cup of coffee and checking things out.

La Verkin had almost nothing except for supermarket and a great little coffee shop, but we were trying to get away from it all so this was a great choice. Hurricane wasn't a metropolis, but had a few nice shops and a few restaurants if you wanted something close.

We love camping when we can, but if you want something a step up where you can have a house to come back to for meals and cleaning up after hitting the trails, you can't do better than the Orchard. First class all the way around.

FANTASTIC BASE CAMP FOR ZION ADVENTURES!

  • 5 of 5
We recently stayed at the Orchard to spend a few days in Zion. We previously stayed at a place in Orderville a year ago for a similar trip, which required us to go back and forth through the tunnel in the park. This can take quite a bit of time when large vehicles come through and stop traffic to pass. Staying at the Orchard was much better and we got to Zion in about 25 minutes with no delays.

There were three of us and our two small dogs. Everyone was right at home as the home was quite large with 3 bedrooms downstairs, and 1 upstairs. The upstairs bedroom would be great for someone with mobility issues. The kitchen was very large and had a great view of nearby mountains. The property is large, about a half acre, and has a bunch of trees, shade, grass and a hot tub. This was great for our dogs. There is also a small school within a 2-3 minute walk to take our dogs to exercise. There is another park down the street, and a great open grassy area at the nearby LDS church on Diagonal street. We didn't notice the last one till we were leaving.

After hiking the narrows, or the other trails of Zion, it was nice to come home to a very cozy place. There is cable TV upstairs in the main living room, games and tons of DVDs. These DVD's are helpful to use in the downstairs master bedroom. There is a great variety, and plenty of kids movies too.

Robert was very attentive and would keep in contact to help us with any questions we had. Both he and Jane were great to work with through out the process. It was only a day or two after we left and he had already gotten our deposit check in the mail for us.

If you are visiting Zion, Bryce Canyon or anything within about 90 minutes of Hurricane and La Verkin, this will be a great place for you. I would recommend it and let you know that the trip you take will be enhanced by having such a great place to recharge after you complete your daily adventures.

Lastly, we live in San Diego. It took us about 2.5 hours from Las Vegas to get to the Orchard. Another 3 hours to Ontario, CA. and then about 1.5 hours from there to San Diego. Hopefully this might help you with your plans to get up to Utah if your coming from So. Cal.
