PANORAMIC VIEW OF ZION NEAR GOOSEBERRY MESA

Apple Valley House Rental Photos and Description

Situated on 1.3 acres of land on top of a mesa in Apple Valley, Utah (4400 feet above sea level), the Gooseberry Mesa lodge is a private, comfortable and relaxing getaway with a view that will keep you coming back. The main house has 3 bedrooms and sleeps 6 comfortably, while the detached studio apartment above the garage has a king size bed to accommodate 2 more.

The main house includes a kitchen with stainless steel appliances including refrigerator, electric stove and oven, dishwasher, microwave oven, coffee maker, toaster, a complete set of pots and pans and dishes. There is a counter, bar with stools so your guests may watch you cook while they sit and chat and a large dinner table that sits 6-8. Eat dinner with family and friends while enjoying the view of the mountains. After dinner sit in the living area while watching television, or unwind in front of the fireplace during a cold winter night, or get together with your family and friends for a board game night. Or if you prefer to barbeque outdoors on the porch and later gather around a 'campfire' for some story telling and toast marshmallows instead.

The laundry closet stores a full washer and dryer. All three rooms in the main house have sliding doors that lead out to the enclosed garden where you can relax and watch the kids play in the little playhouse.

We love to spend most of our 'free' time hiking, exploring and mountain biking. We frequently escape to our 'Utah' house with our two kids for peace and quiet, and to enjoy outdoor activities this area has to offer. We would love to share this experience with you too.

Nik Rashid purchased this house in 2011

We fell in love with the panoramic view of Zion NP and surrounding mountains during the day, and at night the sky is an endless blanket of stars.

Having lived in big cities all our lives, my husband and I love the peace and quiet this house offers and it's closeness to many National Parks.

Awesome location

I just stayed at Gooseberry Mesa last week, and it was great. The house is clean, well stocked, and has a gorgeous view of the cliffs and mesa. The second room above the garage is beautiful, and the unit has wrap-around windows that let you look out at the mountains from the comfort of your bed.

I highly recommend this place. It greatly exceeded our expectations.

Hands Down the Best Place to Stay to Mountain Bike the Gooseberry Mesa Area!

We stayed at this lovely house for five days to explore the Gooseberry Mesa area and it could not have been more perfect. You literally cannot stay closer to the GM trailhead than this. The house is spacious and comfortable with heat and AC and high end appliances. My husband and I prepared all of our meals at the house and from smoothies to BBQ, everything we needed was here and easy to find. The rooms are carefully appointed in a southwestern motif that is as stylish as it is comfy and cozy. And the views are just breathtaking! From every room the Mesas and desert are in full view. From the moment we walked through the door to the minute we left, we were so thankful to have found this lovely retreat. We are already planning our trip back! Thanks again to our kind and friendly host Nik!

Beautiful Views

We had three couples in our group, all family. We had a very relaxing time making group dinners and breakfasts in the very well stocked kitchen. We all enjoyed the beds. My sister in law wanted to take their mattress home with them it was so comfortable (they slept over the garage). I enjoyed the quiet away from Zions so the distance wasn't too bad. The views make us want to spend more time here. We went mountain biking one day. Very nice trail system. Loved our trip and hope to do it again some time. I would recommend this home to others, although I was surprised that the apartment over the garage was not as nicely finished as the rest of the house.

Good house to stay but ..

The house is great. It was clean and is pretty much how it looks in the pictures. It was convenient to visit the Zion National Park which is about 45 mins.

I took a star off because of all the time we had to spend with the owner trying to get the water heater to work (which turned out broken) instead of settling into the vacation after a long drive. This got fixed the next day.

A lovely Thanksgiving at Gooseberry Mesa Lodge

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Dec 8, 2013
  • Stayed: Nov 2013
We found this house to be attractive, clean, well maintained, comfortable and exceptionally well equipped. The listing description was excellent. Our group of seven all enjoyed cooking Thanksgiving dinner together in the roomy kitchen and eating at the spacious dining table. The views from the kitchen, dining room and living room were spectacular. The peaks of Zion were visible as well as beautiful mesas uninterrupted by
any development. Zion is easily accessible by about a 30 minute drive. We definitely would recommend this property to friends and relatives.

Car: necessary

Gooseberry Mesa Lodge is a quiet, comfortable and relaxing getaway with panoramic views of Zion National Park, Gooseberry Mesa and the Smithsonian Butte. Far away from the crowd, you can watch wildlife from the porch, star gaze at night or build a fire and toast marshmallows with the kids.

This is a great location for family getaways and adventurers seeking a central base to explore the surrounding National Parks such as Zion, Bryce, North Rim of the Grand Canyon and Lake Powell, all within a day trip away. Many state parks and recreation areas are also close by. We are also within the immediate vicinity to world-class mountain biking trail systems such as Gooseberry Mesa, Little Creek Mesa and the JEM/Hurricane Rim Trails.

For the adventurous soul, head down the Smithsonian Butte Country Byway in your 4WD. Smithsonian Butte Back Country Byway is only 1.5 miles from the lodge and travels for 9 miles between Apple Valley on State Route 59 to Rockville on State Route 9. As the route winds down into the Valley of the Virgin River, you'll experience views of Zion Canyon, Canaan Mountain, the Vermillion Cliffs, and Zion National Park just four miles west. As you reach the highest points on the Byway, Zion's fiery landscaping, filled with buttes and temples, lays in panoramic glory at your feet.
