Very peaceful area, very few ATV riders in the area, breathtaking views in all directions

Very relaxing atmosphere, a wonderful place to be when the temperature down in the valley is above 85 degrees.

A Getaway From Everything

We recently stayed at the cabin as part of a trip to see Zion National Park and Bryce Canyon. We had a beautiful time, but this cabin is not for everyone. It is a cabin, it is not a home in the woods. Like other reviewers mentioned, the bathtub takes some getting used to. And, like others have also mentioned, it is well off the beaten path. We had some trouble with the generator when we arrived, but our hosts came first thing in the morning to fix it.

Useful tips:

- Bring a calling card in case there is an issue. There is a land line, but it requires a calling card. Cell phone reception is very poor at the top of the mountain.

- Bring warm clothes and pajamas. The top of the mountain is chilly.

- Plan to grill out at least one night. The deck has an exceptional view of the horizon and the stars.

- Google map your destinations before you go. Everything is further apart out west.

- You think two hours of generator time could not possibly be enough. But, it really works out just fine.

- Bring an adventurers spirit.

Again, we found the cabin to be exactly as expected and the hosts were very easy to work with. I would recommend this property to friends.

Hikes, Wildlife, Scenery.....This is the place!!!

If you are thinking about staying near Zion Canyon, this is the place for you! Near the park, great views, secluded and quiet. There are some of the best hikes in the park 10 minuets down the road, and if you are headed over to Bryce in the early morning, take the back way over Kolob Mountain (2hrs) you will be treated to some of the best wildlife sitings (drive slow).
The cabin was neat and clean and described accurately. It has a propane generator and you need to turn the water on out at the road, light the pilot on the gas stove and adjust the water heater at the beginning of your stay but all of the directions are fairly clear and detailed.
Mellisa was very helpful and can answer all your questions in detail. She was a joy to work with and a pleasure to meet in person (she lent us a cooler).
While you are there, spend some time in Springdale (great little shops), drive in to Rockville and ask how to get to the ghost town named Grafton ( neat old cemetary AND this is where they filmed the bicycle scene from Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid in front of one of the remaining homes) Go through the park on Rt.9 and drive towards Knabb and visit Best Friends Animal Shelter for the tour, then ask how to get to the hidden lake further up Angel Canyon (inside a cave), on your way back home stop at Coral springs state park and take a 4 wheeler on a tour of the dunes with Utah off road outfitters.
Our only complaint is we wish we would have stayed longer.........

Misrepresented

  • Submitted: Jul 20, 2012
  • Stayed: Jul 2012
The setting of this cabin is beautiful and it is very quiet. But these are the features of the location and not of the cabin itself which we found to be uncomfortable, unclean and inconvenient. The lodging is described as rustic by the owners who disclose this fact honestly. However, that’s where the honesty ends. The linen was unclean – like in a cheap motel. Equally, the furniture looked and felt as if it had just come from a high traffic urban thrift store without a cleaning. Basic provisions like toilet paper, sugar, coffee etc. were not provided for and the owners only had excuses about these things when we surfaced our complaints. The bath tub - fit only for a toddler - was excruciatingly painful (study the bathroom picture closely) and the springy beds were torturous. The living room was cluttered with junk and plastic orange construction fencing covered the deck and marred the one redeeming feature of the cabin - the view. The owners once again neglected to disclose this until well after we had booked our stay. In their description, the owners laud the location as "perfect...to check out Southern Utah's natural beauty." However, the cabin is located 23 miles off the main road - Highway 9 - which leads to Zion National Park. That' s a 46 mile round trip each time you leave for a day and return. During our stay, we had to make the trip 10 times. That's 230 well memorized miles. The owners further describe the cabin as situated 30 minutes from Zion National Park. While it is true that the road weaves in and out of Park boundaries, it is misleading to say that it is 30 minutes from Zion National Park which most people would interpret as the closest entrance gate. We timed the trip door-to-door from the cabin to the closest gate which is just outside of Springdale. That drive takes a good 90 minutes to complete - 60 minutes of which are on a 35 MPH slow as molasses mountainous road (watch out at night!). When we raised the issue of misrepresentation with the owners we got double-speak about what we mean by "main" road. I guess they also have a different definition for "clean," "convenient," and "comfort." If by retreat, they only mean isolated and far away, then yes, the cabin is a retreat. But to truly retreat, you must be able to relax. To truly relax you need basic comfort, cleanliness, and convenience. These are fundamental elements that the cabin lacks even if your goal was to isolate and only explore the surrounding areas of Kolob Reservoir.
Owner's Response: While we never want to hear a guest say they did not enjoy their stay, it is not due to misrepresentation. We are very upfront about the cabin, the location, and the distance, as it is all stated on this website, as well as in any correspondence we send. On the contrary, we make ourselves very available to answer any questions before any reservation is made, after the reservation is made and even during a stay. As for the cabin, it is cleaned and all linens, towels, rugs, etc. are changed and laundered after each guest. The cabin is an A-frame structure so the bath tub rests along one of the slanted walls. This also has not been misrepresented, as there are pictures on the website as well as comments of other reviewers. The bath tub is a tub with a wand, never have we tried to represent it as a shower. There is very little storage space in the cabin so there is a bin in the back corner of the living room to store extra toilet paper, paper towels, life preservers, etc. There is also a patio umbrella and lounge chairs for guests to use during their stay. Due to the area having wild animals and winds, these items cannot be left on the deck with no one at the cabin or these items would be destroyed. Unfortunately, the back deck was under construction during this stay, due to the railings being on back order. However, when it was discovered that the deck would not be completed in time for the visit, it was clearly communicated to the guest. Since then, the deck railing has been replaced giving an even less obstructed view than the original railing. The location of the cabin is clearly disclosed not only on this website, but also in the initial response sent to each and every inquiry. This initial response includes the distance from the cabin to the entrance of Zion National Park in Springdale, UT, and to Bryce Canyon. The road to the cabin weaves in and out of Zion National Park with trail heads leading all the way up to the cabin. So for our description to state the cabin is 30 minutes from Zion is not misrepresented. The narration does not state it is 30 minutes from the entrance to Zion, located in Springdale, UT, as this is not true. The cabin is 45 min to 1 hour from Springdale, UT, and again this is something we mention in our first correspondence to inquiries. As we realize this cabin is not for everyone, if rustic and tranquil are what you are looking for, this may be the ticket!

This is where you want to go if you're looking to go 'off the grid' and hear complete silence...
It has rustic charm, boardgames, views galore and is central to incredible hikes in and around Zion National Park. Plenty of info on area provided in the cabin as well as by the owners. We really enjoyed being in a less-traveled area of the park. Thanks!

Love the Area!!

I stayed at this cabin for 4 nights in mid-June. It's a great location and the Kolob reservoir area is a real gem. In 4 days I heard three airplanes, one helicopter, a squirrel, the wind and a hummingbird (and the generator when I ran it). It was really really peaceful - just what I was looking for.

The only real downside was that the porch fence had been removed and replaced with a bright orange construction fence. This impacted the whole view (as you can see by the other comments, the cabins biggest draw). I would make sure this has been changed before going back.

I always love a rustic cabin and I think this one is set up well and provides all the comforts necessary. You only need to run the generator for a limited time. The tub's a little funky, but that's the fun of cabin living. I also did use the fireplace and it worked great.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your feedback, Rachel. The back deck was in the process of being redone and unfortuantely, the railing had been on back order during your stay. The view is now even better than it was with the old deck; not at all obstructed by a railing!
