Cedar City Townhome Rental Photos and Description

Townhome, 4 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 4 Baths, (Sleeps 8-10)

If you are going to both Bryce Canyon and Zion National Park, this is a perfect place to stay. Located about an hour and a half from Bryce and an hour from Zion, this puts you in the middle of some beautiful country. Cedar City is a vibrant city that has everything you need and still only be a short drive from your destination. Easy freeway access makes this a great jumping off point.

We have some other vacation rentals and have found that many of our guests are going to both National Parks. Since the total travel time is the same no matter where you are in between, this unit provides space for our larger groups. It is especially great for multiple couples since each bedroom has its own bathroom.

When you come back from a long day of hiking, you may want to just relax or you might want to take in one of the world famous plays put on by the Utah Shakespeare Festival which runs from Summer through the Fall.

This like-new 1875+ square foot townhome (the west, or left side of the building.) is located in the heart of the 'Festival City USA' of Cedar City, Utah. See our VRBO listing #361886 for the east side of the building, which is a mirror image floor plan also with optional basement.

Ask about our discounted pricing starting on your 3rd night- the longer you stay the more you save - up to 30% off! * Send an inquiry for details!

If this unit is too big for you, we have the 'Cottage' next door which is a 2 bedroom 1 bath home that sleeps up to 6. See our VRBO listing #400802. That home accepts pets.

At this property you will find one bedroom with a detached bathroom, laundry facilities, a living room, dining area, and a fully-equipped kitchen on the main floor.

The two upstairs bedrooms feature on-suite bathrooms and walk-in closets. Each bedroom has a queen-sized bed. Each bedroom and the living room have cable TV.

The main floor and upper level accommodates six adults in beds.

The connecting basement level is also available. The only additional charge is a one-time $40 additional cleaning fee. It has a bedroom with a queen bed, an on-suite 3/4 bath, a small kitchen, and an open living and dining area. With a sofa bed this level can accommodate four.

*Twin size roll-away available upon request with advance notice.

This is an ideal place for several couples who want to vacation together with separate bathroom facilities. It is also a great place for large families!

We like to think of Red Door Lodging as a 'Make Your Own Bed and Breakfast'. A pancake breakfast starter kit and coffee is our gift to you upon your arrival!

The kitchen is stocked with the amenities you will need to make your stay both enjoyable and economical. There is even a crock pot so you can have something delicious waiting for you when you get back from your hike, trip to Zion National Park, or many of the other activities that are available here.

The furnishings are comfortable, yet not overwhelming. Things are decorated tastefully without going overboard. We believe that people are looking for nice, clean accommodations that are close to the places that they want to go to. Southern Utah University and both theater festivals are a few blocks away.

At 5857 feet above sea level, Cedar City has much more moderate temperature in the summer compared to its more well known neighbor 50 miles south, St. George, Utah.

This equates to beautiful evenings that can be spent in the open-air seating of several of the Shakespeare plays put on each year during the world famous Tony Award-winning Utah Shakespeare Festival, which now includes a fall schedule. They also have indoor productions, if that is more to your liking.

The Neil Simon Festival also has plays during the summer which are held indoors at the Heritage Center during July and August.

As you can tell from the photos, we have not done any landscaping yet. We hope that you did not want to come to southern Utah to look at our landscaping. So, it looks a little stark on the outside, but is nice and homey on the inside.

We have had a lot of rentals, but this is our second year into the vacation rental business. We feel like we are offering a good alternative to people looking for nice accommodations without have three connecting motel rooms with no kitchen. Of course, you will have to make you own bed and breakfast, but sometimes you just don't want to eat with people you don't know.

If you are wondering how far away some of these world class attractions are, here is a list of some of the most popular ones:

Utah Shakespeare Festival- .45 miles (about 4 1/2 blocks)

Neil Simon Festival- .27 miles (about 3 1/2 blocks)

St. George, Utah- 52 miles, (about 50 minutes)

Las Vegas, Nevada- 170 miles, about 2 hours, 30 minutes

Brian Head Ski Resort; 33 miles, about 45 minutes

Lake Powell- 155 miles, about 3 hours

Cedar Breaks National Monument- 26 miles, about 40 minutes

Bryce Canyon National Park- 80 miles, about 1 hour, 30 minutes

Zion National Park- 60 miles, 1 hour, 5 minutes

North Rim of the Grand Canyon- 169 miles, 3 hours, 30 minutes

Zion Park, Kolob Canyons- 25 miles, 35 minutes

There are a lot of other places to go in this part of the world and we must say that the sites are breathtaking and awe-inspiring! You might come away a changed person with a new outlook on life.

While you may come just to attend one of the festivals, there are things to do year-round here as well. It seems like with the amount of snow we have received this year that Brian Head and the other ski resorts in Utah might be open past June. After the snow is gone they have other things going on up in the cool night elevations of the mountains. Mountain biking, hiking, and lake fishing are always popular.

If you are more adventurous, you might try renting a Harley and letting the wind blow through you hair as you look up at the majestic cliffs of Zion Park without the car roof blocking your view.

About Monica Murset

Hi! I am Carolyn Murset. My husband and I moved to southern Utah 30 years ago. I love to sing, play the guitar and act. Right now I think holding my grand kids is one of my favorite things. The vacation rental business has been an exciting adventure. Everyone seems to love our properties and we have enjoyed having them stay.

Monica Murset purchased this townhome in 2008

Why Monica Murset chose Utah

We built this twin townhome where a very crooked little blue house used to sit. We think Cedar City is a great place for people to visit.

What makes this townhome unique

We believe that after you stay at our nice twin townhome that you will want to book way in advance so that you can have another wonderful experience her in beautiful southern Utah.

Perfect for Shakespeare Festival!

  • 4 of 5

This is the second year our party has stayed here. It's convenient to the Festival grounds--walking distance for most and a quick drive for others. The property is clean, comfortable and well-stocked. Perfect for a family or group of friends. Although it lacks outdoor space for picnics, yard games, etc, there is an ample 'stoop' for hanging out and enjoying a cool breeze and cup of coffee in the morning. We love it!

Temporary Home

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this property for three months while back home in the US for an extended visit. We found the property to be well appointed with adequate furniture and ample kitchen accessories. The owners were responsive to our requests and the housekeepers were quick to remedy any problems. We mainly used the top two levels but also added the basement to our rental when we had family come visit for the holidays. Our stay was terrific and we would return to this property.

This home was wonderful. It had everything we needed. Our teenagers loved their own escape in the basement. Rich was wonderful to work with and replied to us very quickly. Would stay here again in a heart beat.
