This almost-new 1875+ square foot townhome (the west, or left side of the building.) is located in the heart of the 'Festival City USA' of Cedar City, Utah. See our VRBO listing #361886 for the east side of the building, which is a mirror image floor plan also with optional basement.
We are just adding this vacation rental to our inventory. Since we have just started to advertise the calendar is mostly empty as are the customer reviews. If you check our listing for the other side which is 163 E. (VRBO listing # 361886) you can read the reviews of our satisfied customers from last year.
We now have some new updated photos of the finished product!
It looks even better in person.
If this unit is too big for you, we have the 'Cottage' next door which is a 2 bedroom 1 bath home that sleeps up to 6. See our VRBO listing #400802. That home accepts pets.
But as for this property:
On the main floor you will find one bedroom with a detached bathroom, laundry facilities, a living room, dining area, and a fully-equipped kitchen.
The two upstairs bedrooms feature on-suite bathrooms and walk-in closets. Each bedroom has a queen-sized bed. One bedroom has a twin-size roll away bed in the closet. Each bedroom and the living room have cable TV.
The main floor and upper level accommodates six adults in beds. One more can sleep in the twin size roll away bed.
The connecting basement level is also available. The only additional charge is a one-time $40 additional cleaning fee. It has a bedroom with a queen bed, an on-suite 3/4 bath, a small kitchen, and an open living and dining area. With a sofa bed and a roll away bed this level can accommodate five.
This is an ideal place for several couples who want to vacation together with separate bathroom facilities. It is also a great place for large families!
We like to think of Red Door Lodging as a 'Make Your Own Bed and Breakfast'. A pancake breakfast starter kit and coffee is our gift to you upon your arrival!
The kitchen is stocked with the amenities you will need to make your stay both enjoyable and economical. There is even a crock pot so you can have something delicious waiting for you when you get back from your hike, trip to Zion National Park, or many of the other activities that are available here.
The furnishings are comfortable, yet not overwhelming. Things are decorated tastefully without going overboard. We believe that people are looking for nice, clean accommodations that are close to the places that they want to go to. Southern Utah University and both theater festivals are a few blocks away.
At 5857 feet above sea level, Cedar City has much more moderate temperature in the summer compared to its more well known neighbor 50 miles south, St. George, Utah.
This equates to beautiful evenings that can be spent in the open-air seating of several of the Shakespeare plays put on each year during the world famous Tony Award-winning Utah Shakespeare Festival, which now includes a fall schedule. They also have indoor productions, if that is more to your liking.
The Neil Simon Festival also has plays during the summer which are held indoors at the Heritage Center during July and August.
As you can tell from the photos, we have not done any landscaping yet. We hope that you did not want to come to southern Utah to look at our landscaping. So, it looks a little stark on the outside, but is nice and homey on the inside.
We have had a lot of rentals, but this is our second year into the vacation rental business. We feel like we are offering a good alternative to people looking for nice accommodations without have three connecting motel rooms with no kitchen. Of course, you will have to make you own bed and breakfast, but sometimes you just don't want to eat with people you don't know.
If you are wondering how far away some of these world class attractions are, here is a list of some of the most popular ones:
Utah Shakespeare Festival- .45 miles (about 4 1/2 blocks)
Neil Simon Festival- .27 miles (about 3 1/2 blocks)
St. George, Utah- 52 miles, (about 50 minutes)
Las Vegas, Nevada- 170 miles, about 2 hours, 30 minutes
Brian Head Ski Resort; 33 miles, about 45 minutes
Lake Powell- 155 miles, about 3 hours
Cedar Breaks National Monument- 26 miles, about 40 minutes
Bryce Canyon National Park- 80 miles, about 1 hour, 40 minutes
Zion National Park- 60 miles, 1 hour, 15 minutes
North Rim of the Grand Canyon- 169 miles, 3 hours, 30 minutes
Zion Park, Kolob Canyons- 25 miles, 35 minutes
There are a lot of other places to go in this part of the world and we must say that the sites are breathtaking and awe-inspiring! You might come away a changed person with a new outlook on life.
While you may come just to attend one of the festivals, there are things to do year-round here as well. It seems like with the amount of snow we have received this year that Brian Head and the other ski resorts in Utah might be open past June. After the snow is gone they have other things going on up in the cool night elevations of the mountains. Mountain biking, hiking, and lake fishing are always popular.
If you are more adventurous, you might try renting a Harley and letting the wind blow through you hair as you look up at the majestic cliffs of Zion Park without the car roof blocking your view.
WE DO NOT OFFER RATE DISCOUNTS THANKSGIVING WEEK (NOVEMBER 19-25, 2012) OR CHRISTMAS (DECEMBER 20TH- JANUARY 2ND, 2013.)

Hi! I am Carolyn Murset. My husband and I moved to southern Utah 30 years ago. I love to sing, play the guitar and act. Right now I think holding my grand kids is one of my favorite things. The vacation rental business has been an exciting adventure. Everyone seems to love our properties and we have enjoyed having them stay.
The Owner purchased this townhome in 2008
We built this twin townhome where a very crooked little blue house used to sit. We think Cedar City is a great place for people to visit.
We believe that after you stay at our nice twin townhome that you will want to book way in advance so that you can have another wonderful experience her in beautiful southern Utah.
close to downtown Cedar main street, comfortable and updated ammenities
2 kitchens, one in basement, the basement is like an extra apartment, separate entry, family room and kitchen. We were able to use the rollaway bed, eXtra blankets and towels. We are vegetarian, so we cooked our own meals and we're able to find everything we needed. We ended up not using the basement as much because after the ghost stories, half is us slept in the upstairs livingroom, couches, rollaway bed, sleeping bags. Crowded but it worked.
Everyone had a blast! Thank you for letting us stay in your vacation home.
The home was nice inside, and within walking distance of the historic downtown, SUU, Shakespearean Festival, and restaurants, which was nice. It was nice having a place for kids to play downstairs while others visited upstairs. One flat screen TV in the main room, and older CRTs in several other places.
My sister and I needed a place at the last minute to take our teenaged daughters to the Shakespeare Festival before it closed for the season and my husband found this townhome for us. What luck! It was a very clean, comfortable duplex located just a few blocks from campus and we were able to cook all our meals, saving us a bundle. It has a great, flexible layout with two bedrooms with attached bathrooms upstairs and another bedroom with a hallway bathroom downstairs, plus another whole suite of rooms including a kitchen in the basement if you need more room. The owners were really easy to deal with and we will definitely rent this place again-- thanks, Rich and Carolyn!
My extended family and I rented this house to hike during the day and see the Shakespearean Festival plays at night. It was a great place to do both. It was very comfortable and well equipped. I have stayed in a number of VRBO rentals over the last few years and I would rate this house as one of the best. The house and furnishings were clean and well thought out, the owners were professional and prompt in their communications, and the location was convenient.
This was ideal for our family of 5! Each of our three kids had their own room and bathroom, and the dining room table was perfect for breakfast and a game of cards. We were traveling to Utah from Vegas for a family reunion in Panguitch Lake. Not everyone handles the elevation well so we chose to stay in Cedar City. This house was a perfect location because it was close to the mountain, yet walking distance to main street. We found a great cafe and food truck within a mile, as well as a grocery store for use of the crock pot that they provide. The house was big, lots of parking, and friendly neighbors. We will try to stay here every year for the reunion! Thanks so much for the hospitality!
Cedar City is the home of the Tony Award-winning Utah Shakespeare Festival, the Neil Simon Festival, and the Utah Summer Games.
