Wait no longer! A PRIVATE viewing of Elk, Deer and Turkeys in a surreal setting. Our newly remodeled ranch house has 2 bedrooms, 1 bath and is very quaint and cozy! It is nestled in an aspen tree grove on a private ranch. Our elevation is about 7500 ft. in the mountains, making the cooler air a real treat after a full day of hiking in the National Parks. This ranch is the heart of where the deer and elk make their summer home. This little piece of heaven is an absolute must for the person looking for an amazing experience and not just a place to lay your head. It is an excursion all in itself! You will enjoy a scenic 1 mile drive on a graded dirt road to the ranch house. The view from the porch is unlimited!! Our ranch house is a unique opportunity to view wildlife up close, but it is absolutely necessary to keep the noise to a minimum to get that experience. You will view elk, turkey and deer on the front lawn. There is an outdoor cooking area with a barbecue and picnic table. The area is covered with a aspen log pergola with the view of wildlife in the meadow for a great outdoor dining experience. A place like no other!
Cleaning fee waived on a 6 night stay!!
Absolutely no pets and no smoking!!!!
Our newly remodeled ranch house is centrally located between Zion, Bryce and Cedar Breaks National Monument. Enjoy the amazing scenery and famous hiking trails. Aspen Mirror Lake, Navajo Lake and Panguitch Lake are within minutes of the ranch house along with several excellent fly-fishing streams/rivers. There are over 500 miles of atv trails. During the summer, enjoy the beautiful wild flowers and wildlife.
This cozy, quaint and newly remodeled ranch house is fully furnished with everything you'll need for a comfortable stay. There is satellite TV/DVD for your convenience. For you baseball fans, not to worry....we have the MLB package, so you won't miss a game of your favorite team. There is a queen size bed in bedroom 1 and a queen size bed in bedroom 2. For sure, this is a great home base for your Southern Utah vacation. Just minutes away you'll enjoy visiting the national parks, taking in a fishing day, atv or horseback riding, a day at the sand dunes, hiking or just a simple picnic.
There is a fire pit! You can enjoy roasting hotdogs, marshmalloooows or the kids new favorite (starburst candy)!!! The roasted marshmallows make the best roasted dessert, s'mores!!!! (graham cracker, chocolate, roasted marshmallows). Just put the chocolate and roasted marshmallow between the graham cracker and it makes a great sandwich dessert. Mm.. Goooood! You'll never forget it!

Fall Season... the color change of the leaves are a sure thing to talk about!
There is an international airport in Las Vegas and Salt Lake City. Cedar City has a regional airport as well. Las Vegas and Salt Lake City are both linked with Interstate 15 with an exit to Cedar City. It's just a short 40 minutes on a beautiful scenic drive up the mountain on Highway 14 to our ranch house.
Should you happen to forget something, there is Tod's Country Store that is just 2 miles away and has a pretty good selection. Groceries, gas, gifts, liquor, beer, wine, ice, soft serve ice cream and a self-serve grill to cook your hamburger or steak sandwich to your perfection!! On Saturday mornings during the summer months in Tod's Country Stores' parking lot, there is a great farmers market and fatty's barbeque.
Come visit, you won't be disappointed!
Wonderful house at a quite location. Wildlife viewing every night, just as promised. Super quite area. Clean house, had everything we needed. One thing I was a little surprised was that you had to go outside to a separate entrance outside to do the wash. Was no problem though just glad it wasn't raining. Also wanted to grill our last day, but grill wasn't working. Had wood inside of it. Cooked inside instead. Would definitely stay there again when in the area.
We had no real idea of just what to expect when we drove up to the Ranch House. There it was, just like the picture, but inside, the detail of restoring a 60-70 year-old slice of the Old West was nicely surprising. Everything was top quality and thoughtfully comfortable, from decor to hot water (soft!), restful furniture, great beds, and modern appliances. On top of that, we met Nate and Amanda -- the managers of this property -- along with their delightful, energetic daughter, and experienced the care they expend on making sure everything is just right. And, of course, everything was just right. Wood for the fire pit in place (giant marshmallows supplied!), barbecue and outdoor table, front porch seats for sitting and enjoying the view, and a powerful spotting scope for the real treat of the Ranch House: wildlife.
If you have ever had deer, Elk, wild turkeys, and rogue gophers on your front lawn at all hours of the day and night, don't bother trying the Ranch House. Our first visitors were five or six mama deer with fawns prancing around, feeding on the fields of clover to the front. If that were not enough (and this was daily), 28 wild turkeys paraded down the side hill in a straight line, one after the other, stopping to inspect our car and then to peck at the feed at the feet of the deer. Then , down came 15 mama Elk with babies, right on the front lawn. They ignored us as we sat on the front porch. I expect that later in the season the males will also put in an appearance. All in all, highly recommended.
Oh, and don't forget the proximity of Bryce and Zion National Parks, Ceder Breaks National Monument, and hundreds of acres of mountains and forests, all within a day's visit.
The view every night from the front porch was amazing. Watching all the animals come down at dusk to graze in the meadow right in front of the cottage. It's not something you get to see in your everyday life. The cottage was fully equipped and very comfortable. Very convenient to all the parks in the area. I would definitely recommend staying here
We stayed in the cabin for three nights, and I wish we could have stayed for another week. The cabin was modern and clean. It was very isolated, yet it was not even 10 minutes from the highway. The price was fair and the laundry room was a plus. It is in close proximity to the parks, and there was a lake close enough for my boys to go fishing. We even had lake trout for supper one night, cooked on the nice charcoal grill. The obvious highlight was the wildlife viewing. The first night we saw many mule deer and enjoyed it very much. We were pleasantly surprised when, on the second night, the herd of elk joined the mule deer. On our third night, there were probably over 100 mule deer and over 100 elk in the distance yard and meadow. We even saw some fawns nursing from their mother. Between the view and the animals, the scenery was amazing. I don't know if we will make it back to Utah again, but if we do, this would be the first place I will try to rent.
My wife and I stayed at the cabin for a few days for our spring trip in May. We enjoyed viewing the wild turkeys, deer and elk roam the property as well as the sunsets off the front porch each night. It was great to be able to spend our days at Zion or Bryce and then come back to the solitude of the cabin each night. We will defenitely be back again!
We were amazed to come into this wonderful place. A well built house in a beautiful location. The bedrooms and bathroom were very tight for two people. We used both bedrooms just to lay out and put away our stuff. Commuting down to Zion Park was a bit long but a beautiful drive. Once at Zion it is necessary to go into the park another 13 miles (with multiple traffic delays) to get to the visitor center which is essential for allowable transportation throughout the park. However the rental is a bit less costly if you don't mind the extra time it takes to make multiple visits to Zion. Bryce is close but it only needs one day to experience it. Zion is spectacular.
