Overview

Cedar City Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Cottage, 2 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 5-6)

This quaint and homey two bedroom, one- bathroom cottage was built in the 1930's and has recently been remodeled. It is located in the heart of 'Festival City USA', Cedar City, Utah. It is the 'Cottage Next Door' to our much larger vacation rental townhomes that are listed with VRBO, numbers 361886 and 400801. Each of those has 4 bedrooms and 4 baths.

The 1100 square foot cottage has two bedrooms and one bathroom. One bedroom has a queen and a twin-sized bed. The other bedroom has a queen sized bed. Each bedroom and the living room have cable TV.

With the twin-size roll away bed, this cottage will sleep up to six.

The wood laminate floors throughout the house and the 'doggie door' in the bedroom on the right make this dwelling pet-friendly. There is a fenced yard for dogs behind the house.

We like to think of our Red Door Lodging Cottage as a 'Make Your-Own Bed and Breakfast'. A pancake breakfast starter kit and a coffee/ hot cocoa starter pack is our gift to you upon your arrival.

The kitchen is stocked with the 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 appliances, including the washer and dryer in the laundry room are full -size. The kitchen does not have a dishwasher.

The furnishings are comfortable, yet not overwhelming. Things are decorated tastefully, without going overboard. We believe that people are looking for nice and 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.

A couple who does our cleaning and maintenance live in the separate basement in case you need more supplies or have any other issues or questions

At 5857 feet above sea level, Cedar City has much more moderate temperatures 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 summer and fall during the world famous Tony Award-winning Utah Shakespeare Festival. They also have indoor productions, if 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.

We have had a lot of rentals, but the Red Door Lodging east side townhome, VRBO #361886 was our first foray into the vacation rental business. This cottage and the west side of the townhome next door are our new additions.

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.)

About Carolyn Murset

Hi! I am Carolyn Murset. My husband and I moved to southern Utah 30 years ago. because of the magnificent scenery and the equally magnificent people. We had two children when we moved here and now have five. We have seven grand children who all love this part of the world. It is no wonder so many people visit here, and then end up staying.

My husband loves to take pictures and has hung a few at our properties for you to enjoy. He is partial to black and white photography. Our youngest daughter also seems to have caught the bug and you will also see some of her photos as well.

I love to sing, act, play the guitar and have hundreds of other interests. It was my idea to start down this road with a vacation rental and we believe it has been a great thing for us and for our fellow travelers.

We like to travel, but don't seem to do it as often as we would like to. In fact, we still have not gotten our passports!

Carolyn Murset purchased this cottage in 2008

Why Carolyn Murset chose Cedar City

We bought this cottage and a very crooked little blue house next to it in 2008. We then built the gray twin townhomes in it's place. We think Cedar City is a great place for people to visit.

What makes this cottage unique

We believe that after you stay in our lovely and comfortable cottage that you will want to book way in advance so that you can have another wonderful experience here in beautiful southern Utah.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi, this is the owner. Since we are just finishing up this vacation rental home we don't have any reviews. We have some for our property next door (VRBO #361886). We hope you will be our first ones to enjoy our new rental. I can't really describe how peaceful and relaxing this home is. I just love the huge front room which is uncommon for this age home, you just want to curl up on the couch. We hope you will become a member of the Red Door Lodging family. See you soon.

Lovely home, very comfortable

  • 5 of 5
Needed a stay for the Shakespeare festival and this was a lovely and very comfortable home base for us. Clean and comfortable. Nice to have comfortable couches for gathering in the living room and kitchen for making meals was wonderful.

Easy walking distance to the festival. Definitely would recommend and would stay here again. Felt like staying at grandma's house warm and comfortable.

Couple who clean the home even met us last day with some fresh vegetables to take home. Very pleased with the stay. Highly recommended.

A lovely alternative to impersonal hotels

  • 5 of 5
We decided to try renting a house for my family's trip to Cedar City because we would have needed 2 motel rooms. This is a lovely home just off the main street. It is a convenient location and also offers all the conveniences of home. It is such a money saver to be able to make some of the vacation meals at home. This older home is comfortably furnished and made our family time much nicer. We wouldn't hesitate to stay here again. PS - We found the owners to be open-friendly - and very responsive to our needs. Thank you again!

Great place.

  • 4 of 5
Cute. Clean. Well furnished. Close to town and SUU stuff. The roll away was even comfortable. Would have liked to check in before a 2 o'clock show just to drop off stuff. Will consider using it again until we get to be too many.

Owner's Response: Glad you had a good time there. On occasion we can accommodate early check in to help when you are going to a matinee. Our housekeepers also clean two other places and when we have three all at the same time they are a little stretched.
When you grow out of this one you can go to the two which we have next door which can sleep 12 each. If you would like to look, go to VRBO and check out #361886 and #400801. They are four bedroom and four bath town homes.
We hope to see you again next year. Thanks for the review

Loved this clean, quiet, & cozy cottage!

We really loved staying here. Five of us stayed very comfortably (plus dog!) at this very clean cottage with all amenities you need. Able to walk to center of town or river path easily! We didn't want to leave & look forward to returning. Delightfully air conditioned & with plenty of extra blankets & fluffy towels. Pillows were a bit on the flat side but that's the only minor thing that I wish had been better. Very clean & comfortable! The owners are very kind, prompt, & helpful via email. This is way better than any hotel in the area! It was also very quiet when we stayed: didn't hear a peep from any neighbors.

Great Location, Fair Quality

  • 2 of 5
My review is mixed. I'll start by saying that we had a lovely time in Cedar City. The Shakespeare Festival was fantastic, and the hiking phenomenal. The cottage was nice, and conveniently located to the festival. It has a cute, cozy, East Coast feel. We did have a few criticisms. For some reason, there are no cleaning supplies left for renters to use during their stay, not even spray to clean the counters after a meal, or a sponge to wash dishes. Second, while the cottage sleeps six, it is not well suited for eating together. There were only four seats around a small table in the dining area,. We couldn't eat together as a family, for lack of adequate table space. Next, there are very pretty headboards on all of the beds, but none of them are actually attached to the beds, which was disruptive during the night. The kitchen is stocked with cooking utensils, but without decent cutting knives (the one's intended for chopping don't actually work). Finally, the owner deducted $60 from our deposit, claiming that there was a grease-like substance on some towels and pillows. While they were certainly dirty from a post hike shower, we certainly did not cover anything with grease?? Hotels wash and bleach their white laundry, and never charge for soiled items. The cleaning service should have been able to do the same with our appropriately used items. (Please note, our criticisms were expressed to the cleaning service before learning that we would be charged extra for towels. This is our 15th time renting through VRBO, and our first time with criticism.)

Owner's Response: Dear Traveler,
We appreciate any feedback that can help our guests have a more positive stay at our Cottage. The cleaning supplies are something that I am a little puzzled by since we keep sanitary wipes and associated things in the kitchen and bathroom and our regular supply cupboard is in the laundry room. We try not to keep liquid sprays where children can get to them.
You are right that it is not easy to have six eat at the same table. We have a drop leave table that would typically seat 4-5 plus the built in table in the kitchen that can seat at least three. This also does not include two outside tables with chairs. But you are right that table is not suited to 6. I will look over our listing to make sure that this is explained clearly.
We were not aware of the knife situation, we will remedy.
You may be interested to know that we used to have a $200 damage deposit. We have since dropped that to $100 since we almost never have had any damage. Yours was the first damage deposit in the last 50 at least that we have had to hold back anything because of damage. We typically find our guests to be respectful and careful with everything in the house. I can only assume that poor rating is because you are upset that you did not get your full deposit back. I actually felt kind of generous only holding back $60, considering the amount of damage. Here is a copy of the report from our housekeeper and others will have to decide if your rating was appropriate in light of the other 28 positive ones. This was cut and pasted from my email with no alteration......
Rich,

Cottage was complete at about 345 this afternoon.

The condition was very messy. There was also syrup in the carpet in the front room and lots of syrup on the coffee table in front room. There was also a lot of trash and smashed pieces of food spread throughout the house, and ground into the carpet.

Two full size towels have to be replaced along with a hand towel and three pillow cases due to what appears to be grease or some sort of black oil type stains. We treated them prior to washing them with bleach and detergent. They still need to be replaced and we will use them as cleaning rags.
