Excellent! 4.7/5 -

Cedar Ridge Lodge at Bryce Resort Ski, Golf, Tennis, Boating
average rating of 4.736842 based on 19 reviews

The property is decorated nicely.

  • 1 of 5

Televisions in all bedrooms are very small. Upon arrival the hot tub was turned down to low and the water had a funny smell. We were never able to use the hot tub as we didn't feel it was safe. The owner is very difficult to deal with and not very nice or accommodating to the customer

Owner's Response: Heather, Let's be honest and forthcoming to the readers with the content of your comments. You were extremely pleased with Cedar Ridge Lodge for your New Year's weekend get away, and texted me several times how nice the home was and how pleased you were when you arrived. You and your friends left the home in an unacceptable manner after your New Year's Eve party and my manager alerted me of this mess when she and her housekeepers arrived after you departed. I contacted you to let you know this was not appreciated and you immediately became belligerent and claimed you left the home "perfect" which was the farthest from the truth that you left the home a mess and did not honor the easy check-out list that ALL vacation homes have. THIS IS OUR HOME not a Holiday Inn and simple manners in how you leave a home are customary. You were not even assessed anything off your security deposit although we should have deducted fees for the extra cleaning the manager and housekeepers had to do. It was ONLY after we had an exchange over the way you left the home that you resorted to a dishonest review and to complain about the size of TVs in the bedrooms? With all the horrible things happening in the middle east and people being murdered, I would contend that your life could be worse than to complain that your bedroom TV is too small for gosh sakes. And the spa is treated professionally by a spa company and kept covered, The bromine tablets may have a specific smell just like any spa does when you removed the cover but our spa is well maintained, professionally, and the water is changed out bi-monthly. We are so very proud of our 18 5-star reviews and all the kind comments from guests, and invite visitors to read them all. In addition, JUST LIKE YOU DID, most guests text me upon arrival thanking me for the gifts we have for them on arrival (western themed gift boxed western soaps, wine, basket of snacks, chocolates) and telling me how nice the home is. I can predict readers will read those 18 reviews (plus 10 other 5 stars from our other property) and easily understand you are the one type of guest that owners hope they don't have the pleasure in hosting.

Impressive Features, Stunning Attention to Detail

  • 5 of 5

We gathered with friends from DC and Charlotte for a mini-reunion and retreat. Everyone was extremely impressed with the care and attention given to every aspect of the house. Most vacation rentals are just shells that lack all character, but Cedar Ridge Lodge is more like a luxurious cabin in Montana. Some of us didn't leave the house during the long weekend because it is so comfortable with so many fun amenities. Others of us enjoyed golf at Bryce, or touring nearby Luray Caverns. It is only 2 hours from DC, so we all will keep it in mind through the year. The owner, Paul, was consistently available to answer questions by text, and he responded quickly. Also, unlike other vacation rentals, the kitchen is very well stocked with cooking equipment. Thank you, Paul!

Beautiful home - Great family getaway experience.

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful home, well decorated and well maintained. More then enough room for all of us. Short walk to the golf course and restaurant. Grocery store about 15 minutes away. The game room was a big hit with the kids. He seems to have thought of everything and takes great pride in his home - and rightyfully so. Outdoor deck is netted off from

Mosquitoes (even on the ground - below the wood), hot tub was great, master room is huge along with great big bathroom. There are other homes next door but loads of tree cover.

Very meticulous in the instructions and great experience coordinating all the details with owner on short notice.

Highly recommend !!

Great place for a Family Get Away

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our time at Cedar Ridge Lodge. The house was immaculately kept, instructions were well laid out and Paul was extremely helpful in providing directions, suggestions, etc. We were able to walk to the Bryce resort where we skied and went tubing. I would definitely recommend this location to anyone!

Quiet, clean, and beautiful place!

  • 4 of 5

The lodge was a great place to stay at the resort. We were part of a group of ten adults that were meeting up for a weekend of relaxing and spending time together. The lodge was perfect for that! Each sleeping area offers privacy and there are plenty of bathrooms to make things not seem crowded. The lodge was very clean.

My only surprise when I arrived is how close the lodge sits to its neighbors. In my mind I had pictured something a little more secluded

The reason I gave this four stars instead of five, was because the whole weekend I was nervous someone would break something or do something wrong. The owner makes it very clear he's been burned by bad tenants and had me nervous we'd do something wrong to lose our security deposit. All and all we were super respectful and followed his guidelines and did receive out entire deposit back.

Owner's Response: Julie, I'm glad you and your young group of twenty-something year olds enjoyed your stay. We are located within walking distance to the main Bryce Resort Lodge, ski lifts, and golf pro shop, 1st tee, which we describe in the detailed property description section of the listing. I'm not sure why you thought our lodge would be remote and secluded, as you can't have both; very close proximity and walking distance (which guests love) to the main lodge and be remote/secluded. There are more homes around the lodge naturally, because guests prefer that. We never said we were "burned" before, I'm sorry to read that. There have been past damage issues with guests your age so we cover the reasonable guidelines outlined in the rental contract. We always speak to incoming guests to go over many of the home's features and "how to's". We end the call with certainly our "have a wonderful time" well wishes, but also a polite request to please respect our home. There should have been no reason to get nervous during your weekend unless the boys were rough-housing, or something else. As an owner, we don't have the ability to read reviews on prospective renters, although you have the opportunity to read all of our five star reviews, not one described any issue at all with a refund of their security deposit, so I'm surprised to hear you felt nervous during your stay. Guests of Cedar Ridge Lodge are sent a vacation package folder with many resort and national Park brochures, things to do, maps, and even a handcrafted standing bear soap as a surprise, sent via Express Mail. On arrival we have wine, a bowl of various snacks, cookies, tea, coffee, hot chocolate, popcorn, etc., as well as a gift box of various western themed handcrafted soaps made especially for Cedar Ridge Lodge, as well as turn down service with Ghirardelli chocolates, free Wi-Fi, XM radio, 7 TVs, spa, pinball machines, pool table, wrap around deck with a grill, and a really cool authentic lodge theme throughout the home with very nice décor and art. We are so pleased that every review we've ever received has been appreciative of all these "above and beyond" amenities that we extend to ensure guests have the most memorable vacation possible. We try out best and pleased to read so many five-star reviews who keep coming back year after year. As we stated in the thank you card we sent you after your stay, we were happy to hear you had a nice time.
