Mountain bikers, hikers, outdoor lovers, this is the house for you!
Situated on 1.3 acres of land on top of a mesa in Apple Valley, Utah (4400 feet above sea level), the Gooseberry Mesa lodge is a private, comfortable and relaxing getaway with a view that will keep you coming back. The main house has 3 bedrooms and sleeps 6 comfortably, while the detached studio apartment above the garage has a king size bed to accommodate 2 more.
The main house includes a kitchen with stainless steel appliances including refrigerator, electric stove and oven, dishwasher, microwave oven, coffee maker, toaster, a complete set of pots and pans and dishes. There is a counter, bar with stools so your guests may watch you cook while they sit and chat and a large dinner table that sits 6-8. Eat dinner with family and friends while enjoying the view of the mountains. After dinner sit in the living area while watching television, or unwind in front of the fireplace during a cold winter night, or get together with your family and friends for a board game night. Or if you prefer to barbeque outdoors on the porch and later gather around a 'campfire' for some story telling and toast marshmallows instead.
The laundry closet stores a full washer and dryer. All three rooms in the main house have sliding doors that lead out to the enclosed garden where you can relax and watch the kids play in the little playhouse.

We love to spend most of our 'free' time hiking, exploring and mountain biking. We frequently escape to our 'Utah' house with our two kids for peace and quiet, and to enjoy outdoor activities this area has to offer. We would love to share this experience with you too.
Nik purchased this House in 2011
Why Nik chose Apple Valley
We fell in love with the panoramic view of Zion NP and surrounding mountains during the day, and at night the sky is an endless blanket of stars.
What makes this House unique
Having lived in big cities all our lives, my husband and I love the peace and quiet this house offers and it's closeness to many National Parks.

Very nice! Beautiful view!
Our family of six adults stayed here and enjoyed adventures to Bryce and Zion. Beds were comfortable, home was clean and well appointed. We enjoyed watching the stars pop out while sitting around the fire pit. We recommend this spot!
Would love to come back ASAP.
Great house, great location, great view. My kids were in love with the property.
A wonderful and relaxing retreat in the mountains!
The views from the property are amazing! We have three children and there was ample space for them to run and play. The home was so charming and had everything we could ask for. We were all sad to leave!
Great views in a relaxing setting!
Comfortable home with plenty of room and Southwest character. Great place to escape for some sun and warmth. Will recommend to friends and family.
Awesome well stocked more beautiful than the pictures
You can see this place is great but I will add very well appointed for kids. I’ve been to vacation rentals in the past that may have a play set for the kids or a few games but this place was amply shocked with toys. If only I’d known I wouldn’t have taken up so much of my luggage space packing toys.
Beautiful home and great getaway!
We loved our stay at this home. Our two young girls were thrilled with the play house and the kitchen had everything we needed for cooking our family meals. It was quiet and off the beaten path which gave us the rest we were looking for. Would definitely stay again.
Gooseberry Mesa Lodge is a quiet, comfortable and relaxing getaway with panoramic views of Zion National Park, Gooseberry Mesa and the Smithsonian Butte. Far away from the crowd, you can watch wildlife from the porch, star gaze at night or build a fire and toast marshmallows with the kids.
This is a great location for family getaways and adventurers seeking a central base to explore the surrounding National Parks such as Zion, Bryce, North Rim of the Grand Canyon and Lake Powell, all within a day trip away. Many state parks and recreation areas are also close by. We are also within the immediate vicinity to world-class mountain biking trail systems such as Gooseberry Mesa, Little Creek Mesa and the JEM/Hurricane Rim Trails.
For the adventurous soul, head down the Smithsonian Butte Country Byway in your 4WD. Smithsonian Butte Back Country Byway is only 1.5 miles from the lodge and travels for 9 miles between Apple Valley on State Route 59 to Rockville on State Route 9. As the route winds down into the Valley of the Virgin River, you'll experience views of Zion Canyon, Canaan Mountain, the Vermillion Cliffs, and Zion National Park just four miles west. As you reach the highest points on the Byway, Zion's fiery landscaping, filled with buttes and temples, lays in panoramic glory at your feet.
