The cabin sits on 40 acres and guests are free to hike and explore the natural beauty and solitude. We are happy to share with guests our favorite spots, and nearby maintained hikes and attractions. The cabin is completely furnished and guests are free to use any items that are in the cupboards. The kitchen is fully stocked with basic cooking needs, coffee, tea, dishes and appliances. There are movies, books, games, extra blankets, clean towels and sheets, and we keep the bathroom stocked with basic toiletries and first aid. Guests only need to bring their own food and libations. Our property is completely secluded; it is surrounded by other private property and BLM land. It is only 15-20 minutes from the ski resort and town of Brian Head, UT which hosts ATV rentals, bike rentals, a grocery store, and many fun summer festivals and activities. When you leave Brian Head you will travel a dirt road to access the cabin. The road is maintained, but can be rough depending on the weather. Cedar Breaks is just another 15 minutes away for spectacular views and hikes. The twisted forest is a must see for hikers, and there are many other trails near by. If you would like more information about the area please let me know. We are always happy to help guests plan their trips. The cabin is completely off the grid, which means it is powered by a solar panel and propane (it has a generator back-up for days short on sunshine), and the water is from a fresh mountain spring. There is limited cell reception and no internet or cable. It is truly a mountain paradise. A place to unwind, relax, unplug, and experience nature. You might run into a neighboring land owner if you are out hiking or exploring, but the only real neighbors are the trees and animals that call this place home.
Serene, peaceful, and completely secluded mountain retreat.

About Heather Gans
Hello, my husband Chris and I live in sunny St. George, UT just 40 minutes from beautiful Zion National Park. We enjoy hiking, traveling, hosting, hanging out with family & friends, reading, learning, eating clean, a good cup of coffee, bottle of wine or glass of beer. We both work hard so we can play hard. I am also a writer and a yoga enthusiast; I love cooking healthy food and trying new things. My husband is the Maintenance supervisor of the dorms at the local University, is currently working on acquiring his pilot's licence, and is a madman on the drums. We love seeing/hearing live music (when he's not playing), meeting new people, and making new friends. Being in the outdoors with our 2 dogs, whether that is hiking, at the beach, our home in the desert, or our mountain retreat, is our favorite place to be. We hope that our guests feel at home and make an extra effort to make sure they have everything they need when they arrive to enjoy a private get-away. Whether bringing your family, or a business group for a secluded retreat, we are here to help you plan your trip every step of the way. Life motto: Live simply, be kind to everyone you meet, and always take the scenic route...

Additional information about rental rates
No Shooting: This is for a couple of reasons. 1. We have neighbors who also live on the mountain. 2. There are free range cattle that often wander nearby. 3, The mountain has just survived a huge forest fire that burnt over 50,000 acres to the north and west of us. As lucky as we feel to have escaped the fire’s destruction, it has left us feeling vulnerable and extremely cautious to the extreme fire restrictions in place. Campfires: Campfires are restricted in public places across the county. We also know the fun of roasting marshmallows, hot dogs, tinfoil dinners, making s’mores, or simply sitting around the fire at night watching the millions of stars. We do allow you to have a SMALL campfire in the fire pit out back. Wood is provided and kept dry under the tarp. Hot dog sticks, paper, and lighter fluid are in the boat in the dining room. Camp chairs are kept out in the garage by the dart board. We only ask that you never leave a fire unattended, and make sure the fire is completely out before going to bed--Never an ember left smoldering. A bucket is supplied for water, and there is an outside hose in the front yard if needed. Hiking: Our property is special because it is surrounded by BLM land to the north (above the back of the cabin) and other private property on all other borders. Please be mindful of our neighbors and friendly if you happen to see someone. You are free to hike around the cabin within the area directly in front of the cabin and up to the gate at the entrance. ATV’S: We allow you to bring your own, or the town of Brian Head has a couple different ATV rental shops. Brian Head has worked very hard the last few years to maintain and create many fun off-road trails. They are all marked with blue ATV signs and maps are available in town. You are welcome to just explore and find your own adventure also. *We ask is that you are considerate of our neighbors, private property signs, and only ride on the marked trails, or the main roads. Thank You
