Overview

Utah House Rental Photos and Description

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.

About Nik Rashid

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 Rashid purchased this house in 2011

Why Nik Rashid chose Utah

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.

A jewel in the desert

  • 5 of 5

Wow! What a great getaway from the busy Las Vegas life. This gorgeous 3 bedroom home with detached studio apartment is an amazing vacation spot for family, friends or even a romantic getaway. Just 2 quick hours away from Las Vegas and you feel like you're in another world. Gorgeous scenery, hiking, biking and outdoor activities all around. There's even a fire pit to enjoy s'mores on a chilly night. The home is immaculately kept and the owners were a dream to work with. I highly recommend this home for those looking for a perfect getaway.

Clean, well stocked with all the necessities, beautiful area

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a terrific weekend here! We have five children ranging from five years old to 17 years old. The house offered plenty of space, and lots of fun activities for the kids: a little playhouse, games, puzzles, outdoor fire pit. The kitchen is well-stocked with all of the needed cooking items. The scenery is beautiful and very close to lots of fun outdoor activities. We would definitely recommend this rental home!

Firemen in Zion!

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely wonderful property that does not disappoint! 10 Men had plenty of room to sleep, eat, and socialize. Very close to all of the great mountain biking trails in the Gooseberry/Hurricane area. This house is very clean and well appointed and I would recommend it to any of my closest friends! Do not hesitate to rent. The owner is very responsive, the house is clean, and the property is unbelievable!

Gooseberry Mesa Lodge

  • 5 of 5

Beautifully situated with well thought out accommodation and facilities. We had 4 nights, I honestly wish it had been 40.

Note...due to recent heavy rains the Scenic Byway 'short cut to Rockville is impassable for all but the most intrepid explorers and rugged high clearance vehicles. We tried in a jeep and abandoned it before the going got seriously tough.

Best Vacation in Years

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I had our best vacation in recent memory at this lodge. The pictures on the website are very accurate and even though we stayed 4 nights, we only went to Zion once, the lodge itself was just so comfortable and surrounded by beautiful mountains. Owner is extremely accommodating and responsive. We plan on doing another trip here with friends. Recommend on the strongest terms.

Great home with spectacular views

  • 5 of 5

Our stay was an absolute wonderful experience. We were a group of 7 Adults and the accommodations were perfect for us. The house is beautiful, everything was in place and ready to use. The views are spectacular and the place is a great gateway to Zion, Bryce and the Grand Canyon North Rim. We rent vacation homes all over Europe the U.S. and Canada , this was definitely one of our favorites!

Map

Car: necessary

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.
