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. Catch-and-release fishing is free and does not require a license, however, you may choose to keep fish at $5 per fish (limit 2 per guest). 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.

The main reason that I did 4 stars was the sleeping was not conducive for 10 people for a board retreat. Sleeping in a closet with bunk beds and one queen where you have to go through the bedroom to get to the closet was odd. Bathroom shared by master bedroom and the closet bunk beds. Not really private. We were Missing hand towels and washcloths, just bath towels and beach towels were all that we could find.
Kitchen was missing dish soap to wash dishes before putting them in dishwasher. Other than those few items and sleeping arrangements it was a nicely maintained property, Clean with beautiful views.
The property and hosts/owners were fantastic. The views from the deck were beautiful, the animals on the farm, the proximity to Zion...all great!
This is an amazing place to stay. We had a wonderful time the home is beautiful. The location is absolutely spectacular. Gorgeous view. The animals are wonderful to interact with. Our grandchildren had such a grand time. Experience things they have not ever done before. The fishing experience was amazing. The tree houses were so much fun for the kids. It was a peaceful delightful place to stay. The house were absolutely wonderful. It was so nice to be able to bring our dogs. The whole family wants to come back soon.
Great location and view
We really loved the location, view and larger property. It's an extremely special place and piece of land. The wandering peacocks and animals were a highlight. I wish someone could have shown us how to feed them, as we read in other reviews. Saw baby bunnies, deer, wild turkeys - the wildlife was awesome. We were disappointed several of the outside areas were extremely overgrown. We were so excited to use the huge field below the house to play soccer and run around with the dogs. But the grasses were close to waist-high, and it was unusable. The owners had been out of town, and they mowed the field our last afternoon. It will be in perfect shape for the renters after us. Another reason we booked this property was the playground on premises. Unfortunately, the amazing horses used it as a pen, and it was not open for our use. I wish we would have known this before we booked. We reached out to both owners, and didn't receive replies from either (we later found out they were out of the country). By the time they were back in town and we saw them, we didn't ask, because the entire playground was covered in horse manure. This was a big reason we booked, as we were really looking to stay close to the house and relax. The area by the pond was lovely, and we enjoyed feeding the lone duck when he stuck around. The area by the creek was fun - be careful, wasp's nest in one of the treehouses. Grass was pretty long, but again, it was cut right before we were leaving. The house itself was older, we knew this from the photos. It was big, with lots of areas for privacy if you have multiple parties. View outside is magical. We loved being outside, but several of the chairs felt unsafe (moved too far back, etc), and the cushions were completely ripped on one side of many. Dishwasher leaked, so we had to have towels on the floor every day. Several blinds could not be raised, which blocked the view (and one in the master didn't have blinds - hello morning!) The beds were comfortable, lots of hot water and good pressure. Lots of flyswatters for the inevitable flies around a farm. Good wi-fi, after we rebooted the first day. AC worked fabulously and fans in bedrooms (so appreciated). Proximity to Kolob and Zion was great. Cedar City is about 20 minutes for convenience. A special place - but 2 of the areas we thought we'd be able to enjoy (the open field and the playground) were unusable, so that was a bit disappointing despite a lovely week.
So much to do, so little time! We definitely will come back again!
