About Jane & Robert

We've been coming to Southern Utah regularly since 1996 and we just 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. (Our fruit is served in fine cuisine at the Las Vegas restaurants of Mario Batali, one of the world's great chefs.)

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.

Five guys up in the area for mountain bike riding. This house was perfect for our group and had everything we needed. We will come up and stay here again.

The Orchard was the perfect place to stay!! Close to Zion for our hiking and yet still close to St. George for any shopping and nightlife you want, if your not to tired! Robert and Jane were so great to work with. The home was so nice and fit all my sisters and our spouses perfectly. The grounds were so pretty with all the trees. Just wonderful!!

Perfect location for visiting Zion!

  • 5 of 5

The location was excellent for visiting Zion, only about 20 minutes from the entrance of the park. It is also right next to Virgin which was great for mountain biking. Pictures matched the property exactly and the owners are very attentive and helpful when needed.

Just what our family needed for a perfect summer vacation

  • 5 of 5

Our Iowa family of 10 spent 10 days at the orchard . For us it was the perfect choice. Plenty of room for the 5 kids to explore, and a terrific central location for many trips to Zion, the Grand Canyon and Bryce. Less than a half hour to Zion, or St George. The house is clean, well stocked with lots of extras not usually found. The owners are great to work with, so it becomes a hassle free vacation. I have already recommended the place to friends at home and hope to come back again. This house is perfect for 3 couples or two families. We cooked in a lot because of the size of our family, the grocery stores in Laverkin were good. The public pool n Hurricane was a hit, as well as the splash pad in Laverkin. Thanks to Jane for all of her travel advice

everything you need included

  • 5 of 5

We held a family clan get together at the Orchard, taking day trips to the National Parks and relaxing in the home during the evenings. Weather was hot but the Orchard was COOL, in all senses of the word. Layout of the rooms and kitchen is very convenient. Trees shade the back deck, allowing outside evening relaxing. We do not watch much TV but note that this equipment is installed and working. Kitchen was well stocked with tumblers, plates, bowls, cooking equipment, etc. We highly recommend The Orchard to others.

Great place to relax after hiking Zion

  • 5 of 5

After long hikes in Zion, we found your home to be a great place to read, play games, and relax in the jacuzzi. It was clean and comfortable with plenty of space for everyone. There is a grocery, coffee spot and good restaurants nearby.
