About the property

Cabin, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 3 Baths, (Sleeps 8-18)

Enjoy magnificent views from the huge deck of our hilltop home at the base of the Pine Valley Mountains, while enjoying one of several outdoor fire pits. Dark skies make wonderful stargazing from the comfort of the hot tub or with a telescope from the deck. No ordinary vacation rental, ours is a 50 ACRE RANCH with tons of activities and amenities. Fish in our PRIVATE FISHING POND stocked with trout and bass. ATV trail ride right from the ranch into the Bumblebee Mountains with hundreds of miles of roads and trails through juniper, pine and aspen forests. Our barn boasts more than just livestock, although there are plenty of animals, it has a pool table, foosball, ping pong, air hockey and other games. The kids love the animals; fallow deer, sheep, goats, horses, cows, pea foul, chickens, geese, ducks, rabbits and more. Finally enjoy a game of horseshoes or Frisbee golf in the pasture or enjoy the shade of the cottonwoods at the picnic area by the stream. **WE ONLY RENT TO ONE GROUP AT A TIME, so in essence this will be your own personal ranch for the duration of your stay.

The home itself is a semi-rustic cowboy themed getaway with three bedrooms, three baths, and hide-a-beds, with floor space for more. Dining sits 16 between the dining room table and bars. RV’s are welcome. 2 wheel drive Accessible.

In addition to the many activities on the property the attractions within 1 HOUR from the property are vast and include:

The world famous Tony award-winning Utah Shakespeare Festival

Tuacahn Amphitheatre

Zion National Park

Kolob State Park and Snow Canyon State Park

Coral Pink Sand Dunes State Park

Brian Head Ski Resort

Quail Creek and Sand Hollow Reservoirs (Boating & Fishing)

Of course southern Utah is world famous for its desert landscapes and outdoor activities including hiking, biking, rock crawling, climbing, hunting, fishing, shopping, dining, and only 1 hour and 15 minutes to Mesquite, Nevada for gambling and nightlife.

Keep in mind that this is a semi-rustic working farm, where animals and adventure abound. If you are looking for something unique and a little off the beaten path, this is definitely for you. Also, beware that the nearest store is the gas station 5 minutes from the farm. We are situated in New Harmony, Utah. Nestled between the Pine Valley Wilderness and Bumblebee Mountain about 1/2 way between Cedar City and St. George 5 miles west of I-15. The weather is mild and comparable to Cedar City which is only 25 minutes north. St. George is a little further at 40 minutes south.

Harmony Haven is an excellent choice for vacations, family reunions, weddings, company parties, and more. In addition to nightly rentals we offer wedding and event packages, please call for details.

Fishing at our private stocked pond is free for catch-and-release and only $5 per fish kept (limit 2 per guest) on the Honor System. We supply several fishing rods and some tackle but you are welcome to bring your own. We do not provide ATV’s or horseback riding.

About Jan Prisbrey

We love the outdoors and the beauty and many activities of Southern Utah's diverse desert to mountain landscapes. Harmony Haven is our life’s dream and we love our little ranch and reside here year round. We care for the animals and maintain the property all the while enjoying all of the activities available to our guests. The idea to first share our ranch came when a local organization arranged for a young man with leukemia to fulfill his lifelong dream of wild turkey hunting which we arranged for him and his family; then came a couple of wedding ceremonies and family reunions with the Kolob Fingers in the background and soon it evolved in to a full time vacation/event property. Our children are all grown, though they and our grandchildren are here as often as possible, so the two of us were able to move quite comfortably into the small bunk house where we enjoy our ranch from a somewhat less elevated vantage. We appreciate your consideration of our rental and are sure that you will enjoy your stay as so many guests before you. -Jan and Kendall

Jan Prisbrey purchased this cabin in 2001

Why Jan Prisbrey chose New Harmony

Although we enjoy the occassional vacation to big cities, we are small town people who love Utah's outdoors. We decided to purchase this property because it is centrally located between two cities, albeit relatively small cities, that have everything we could want from dining, movies, golf, shopping and more. As far as we are concerned though, we have the rare privilege of coming home to peaceful mountain views with wildlife and farm animals in our pastures and ATV's and fishing from our front door.

What makes this cabin unique

There is a private fishing pond on the property stocked with bass and trout and the fishing is free and does not require a license. It is catch and release. You can choose to keep fish at $5 a fish. You can ride ATV's right from the ranch a couple of miles and into the mountains. We are surrounded by some of the most scenic state and national parks in the country and have the advantage of being close to St. George with all of the activities it has to offer without the summer heat.

You are welcome to keep two Rainbow Trout per guest for only $5 each kept or killed. This is on your honor, we make no money on the fish themselves the cost is simply so that we can replace any lost trout for future guests.

We have stayed here 2 times now for our Family reunion. It's perfect half-way point for family in Idaho, Utah and Arizona. The best part is how much there is to do and see. The owners are terrific and very accommodating.

We love it and planned to be back again next year 😊

Amazing views and surrounding area is a wonderful quiet spot

  • 5 of 5

The house is situated on a hill that looks over the entire valley and has an amazing view of the red rocks near Zion. The inside of the house itself is a little dated (think more cabin less house), but the animals, views, and scenery more than make up for it. The 4 year old in our group had so much fun with the barn cats and bunnies, and we fished at the pond. There are ATV trails nearby and hiking trails in New Harmony itself. Something to do for everyone in the family, from 4-84. Only downside was all the taxidermy animals all over the house, didn't really go with the "enjoy nature" vibe of the house. Overall, would book again, lovely!

A dream vacation!

  • 5 of 5

This home and this couple are the best example of hospitality. They felt more like family than some of our family. We had the greatest time for the end of summer fishing trip. My father is 80 years young and caught the best fish of his life. He also found a great "the ones that got away" story. Younger family loved the tree house area and the animals. The view was magnificent and peacefull. Thank you for everything.

Amazing Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

Our family had an amazing time in New Harmony. Jan was a terrific host and ensured we had everything we needed to enjoy our time at their home. The view is spectacular from the large deck overlooking the valley into the Kolob Canyons area. Our kids loved all the animals and had a blast feeding them when they were not at the pond trying to catch large trout or bass. We would recommend anyone staying here and I am certain we will be back!
