Fabulous Family Summer Vacation!
The pictures truly do not do this property justice, it is spectacular. The home was clean and comfortable with stunning views from the back deck and all over the entire area. The location was perfect, close to both Bryce and Zion. Having explored the area we appreciated that this home was close to the highway without being too close (the back dirt roads go on forever and it was nice to have access to nearby highway)
ONE NOTE: We did not realize the king bed is a sleep number and found it to be rock hard. When my daughter arrived on the 4th night and pointed it out, the bed was then quite comfortable. I think it should be communicated to renters as we missed out on four nights of comfort due to our lack of observation!
I would advise visitors to STOCK UP on food as there is virtually no grocery store anywhere close by. There are also very few restaurants. We drove back to Cedar City for groceries mid trip. The kitchen has limited pots and pans, enough to get by, but I would't plan a lot of cooking as I found I could not find all I needed such as big sauté/fry pan with lid. Can opener did not work, etc. Their are plenty of dishes and pots and pans for simple meals. However, with the lack of restaurants we felt we needed to cook a few nights.
I would not recommend Susie's Home Cooking (or similar name) it was terrible. Mama Mia's Pizza was good. Our favorite was Pine Wood Resort restaurant. The chef visited with us, as did all the staff and we felt very welcome. Plus the food was great, I enjoyed the Salmon and my husband and daughter loved the BBQ. Overall during our stay, I felt I was constantly in need of fruits and veggies though!!
We did a lot of hiking and recommend hiking up the Narrows in Zion. Allow a full day if you can. It was one of my lifetime favorite things I have ever done!!!! We also rented the 4 seat Razor from Pinewood and had a blast! (get a map!!!!!!!)
Sad the trip is over, we LOVED being there!

Owner's Response: Thanks for the tips! I will have to put a sign up to let people know that the remotes on the nightstand are for the mattress. There were numerous pots and pans in small to large sizes at one point. We have another cabin we stay in so did not realize that they have been disappearing with the tenants. I will make sure to bring a few more up. I will also attach an information sheet to the rental contracts so people will know where to shop and where to dine. Glad you had a great vacation with the family!
