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.

DIDN'T WANT TO EVER LEAVE!

I am not sure I can say enough wonderful things about this property. First off, the owners were wonderful to work with, quick with responses, and answered all my questions thoroughly. Next, the house is amazing! Inside it is beautiful, completely stocked with everything a person could ever think to need, plenty of room for everyone, has amazing insulation as the house stayed a great temp with or without the A/C, and the beds were wonderfully comfy. The view outside was breathtaking and the property was fun to explore. Sleeping with the windows open is a must to hear the coyotes howling in the middle of the night! Our teens stayed in the studio and it gave them their needed privacy, but they were still part of the vacation. The garage/game room kept us all busy in the evenings and had a small stash of outdoor toys including Frisbees, sand buckets and an intertube we took to Quail Creek Reservoir one afternoon.

Everything was conveniently located: Zion being about 40 minutes away (the Narrows are a must!), the reservoir about 25 min, Pipe Springs National Park about 30 min, and Coral Pink Sand Dunes about 45 min (if you take the 6 mile non 4 wheel drive dirt road in Colorado City). Grand Canyon and Bryce are a bit further... 2.5 hours, but worth the drive. If you plan a lot of day trips, definitely get the annual National Park pass. For $80, it will get you into everything and will follow you for the next year to any other parks you visit. Especially important if you head to Bryce via Zion because you will have to pay Zion entrance fees to pass through from the main to East entrance and the tunnel. Worth it for the amazing scenery. We will be back!

Word of warning for out of state travelers that like to imbibe, Utah has crazy strict liquor laws and it is next to impossible to purchase additional beverages like wine or hard alcohol. Amazingly beer was everywhere?!?! We thought we would get tricky and buy a bottle of wine in AZ, about 30 min away when we visited Pipe Springs, but plan to add $10-$15 to a typically priced CA bottle. A usual $7-$9 bottle at our local grocery was $22! Needless to say, we did without. lol.

BEAUTIFULL HOME NEAR ZION

  • 5 of 5
Had a wonderful time at this beautiful home. It was super-clean and even more beautiful than the pictures. The entire property is very well taken care of and the location is great for seeing Zion, Grand Canyon, Valley of Fire State Park, Las Vegas, and much more. Would definitely recommend this to everyone.

EVEN BETTER THAN EXPECTED!

  • 5 of 5
This home is awesome! Clean, well-maintained, well stocked, close to the national parks. We could not have asked for anything more. AND, we had a nightly visit from a roadrunner couple. The male even brought us gifts of dead lizards! Hoping our next visit we'll be able to bring our grandchildren to enjoy the playhouse. We're recommending this to all our friends.

GREAT STAY

  • 5 of 5
Gooseberry Mesa Lodge was great! This was not your typical rental property. It's obvious the owners take pride in the house. We cooked all our meals at the house and found the pots, pans, utensils, and appliances were all top notch including a gas barbecue on the patio. The views of gooseberry mesa from the casita were spectacular. This trip was an annual mountain bike trip for me and my friends. We did a total Of 45 miles on the bikes over 4 days at gooseberry and surrounding areas. It was some of the best riding I have ever done. I will definetly be back. Leave some availability for me in May 2015 :)

THIS PLACE IS GREAT!

  • 5 of 5
This place was a great place for our hiking vacation. I will have to admit we didn't spend enough time in this beautiful house. After a quick breakfast we headed out to Zion or Bryce for a day hiking and just taking in nature. Coming back each night it was nice to have a relaxing place to go where we could all pitch in and make dinner and we enjoyed sitting around the table talking about what we should see the next day. The property is beautiful.

A FANTASTIC STAY

  • 5 of 5
Everything about the lodge was terrific. It is even more beautiful than in the photos and the owners were easy to work with and accommodated all of our needs. We will be headed back as soon as we can to the this spacious and well equipped house. It provided the prefect home-base for our hiking and mountain biking excursions. Not to mention that the house is fully equipped to help you cook delicious meals as the sun sets over Gooseberry Mesa.

Map

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.
