About Jane & Robert

We've been coming to Southern Utah regularly since 1996 and we love it. We've traveled across the U.S. and overseas and it's hard to find anything as beautiful as this area.

Jane & Robert purchased this house in 2005

Why Jane & Robert chose Utah

We bought The Orchard in 2005 and spent a lot of time and effort turning it into a unique, one-of-a-kind getaway in the middle of a peaceful boutique orchard.

We go out of our way to ensure that our guests have a terrific experience including little things like providing a complimentary jar of exquisite jam made from our apricots, figs and other fruit.

Everyone who has visited The Orchard loves it and hates leaving. And isn't that the point of a vacation, to fall in love with your surroundings?

Come to Southern Utah. Relax at The Orchard. We're confident you'll love it as much as we do!

What makes this house unique

Peaceful, fully furnished home settled in a boutique orchard. EVERYTHING IS INCLUDED except for your food & beverages!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Big, beautiful & wonderful were adjectivies shared by all. We especially loved the orchard since our friends from Taiwan area avid organic eaters. We tried some of the peaches, almonds, grapes & enjoyed knowing they’re all organic. Also tried some mint & other herbs after a good rinse.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here at “The Orchard.” We visited Zion, Bryce & the North Rim of the Grand Canyon…absolutely fantastic.

Thank you Robert & Jane for letting us experience the joy of living in your vacation home. It was a magical time for us & we have pictures & memories to treasure for the rest of our lives.

Unique property, ideal base for Zion vacations

  • 5 of 5

I had a great stay at The Orchard during my vacation to Zion. The property is very private and well maintained. The landscaped grounds are especially beautiful. Overall, staying here feels like having your own private desert oasis. Although we only had 4 in our group, the house could comfortably accommodate a lot more. Robert and Jane were very friendly and quick to respond to texts/calls/emails. They were great hosts.

La Verkin is an ideal base for Zion vacations if you plan to see more than just the main canyon (which you should!). It's a short drive to all the corners of the park, including the Kolob Canyons and the Kolob Terrace. As a bonus, it's significantly cheaper than Springdale. The town has everything you need...I especially recommend checking out River Rock Roasting Company, where you can enjoy good coffee and breakfast food on a spectacular deck overlooking a canyon.

Great home base for Zion area

  • 5 of 5

The house did a good job of serving our needs prepping and recovering from the Zion 100 ultra. We had multiple friends come and go, and the ample kitchen and great layout/living/deck area was ideal. The mature landscaping is a strong positive for the property and makes hanging out on the porch in the evening delightful.

Light sleepers may not love the fact that you can definitely hear others moving around in the kitchen area (Directly above the lower bedrooms) - although short of a major remodel I do not think the owners could do much about this.

Wonderful House...Great Week!

  • 5 of 5

We rented this lovely home for our Thanksgiving family get-together. It was perfect for us and we enjoyed the convenience and comfort of this well-appointed house! The kitchen was great and a grocery was nearby, which made cooking big family meals a pleasure! We also loved being close to Zion National Park and enjoyed some beautiful hikes. What wonderful memories we created during this delightful week at the Orchard! Thanks so much sharing this great space with us!

Everything was PERFECT!

  • 5 of 5

I loved this place. It was so peaceful and gorgeous. And the views from the deck were breathtaking. We had 3 couples, 2 babies, and a dog with us, and the space was plentiful. We cooked our meals in the fully stocked kitchen, and enjoyed them together on the large dining table. The beds were cozy and the Jacuzzi was perfect after long days of hiking. The proximity to Zion was perfect. Bryce was a bit of a drive, but worth it.

The owner was pleasant to work with and extremely accommodating. Highly recommend!
