Cedar City cottage description


This quaint and homey two bedroom, one- bathroom cottage was built in the 1930's and has recently been remodeled. It is located in the heart of 'Festival City USA', Cedar City, Utah. It is the 'Cottage Next Door' to our much larger vacation rental townhomes that are listed with VRBO, numbers 361886 and 400801. Each of those has 4 bedrooms and 4 baths.

The 1100 square foot cottage has two bedrooms and one bathroom. One bedroom has a queen and a twin-sized bed. The other bedroom has a queen sized bed. Each bedroom and the living room have cable TV.

With the twin-size roll away bed, this cottage will sleep up to six.

The wood laminate floors throughout the house and the 'doggie door' in the bedroom on the right make this dwelling pet-friendly. There is a fenced yard for dogs behind the house.

We like to think of our Red Door Lodging Cottage as a 'Make Your-Own Bed and Breakfast'. A pancake breakfast starter kit and a coffee/ hot cocoa starter pack is our gift to you upon your arrival.

The kitchen is stocked with the the amenities you will need to make your stay both enjoyable and economical. There is even a crock pot so you can have something delicious waiting for you when you get back from your hike, trip to Zion National Park, or many of the other activities that are available here. The appliances, including the washer and dryer in the laundry room are full -size. The kitchen does not have a dishwasher.

The furnishings are comfortable, yet not overwhelming. Things are decorated tastefully, without going overboard. We believe that people are looking for nice and clean accommodations that are close to the places that they want to go to. Southern Utah University and both theater festivals are a few blocks away.

A couple who does our cleaning and maintenance live in the separate basement in case you need more supplies or have any other issues or questions

At 5857 feet above sea level, Cedar City has much more moderate temperatures in the summer compared to its more well-known neighbor 50 miles south, St. George, Utah.

This equates to beautiful evenings that can be spent in the open-air seating of several of the Shakespeare plays put on each summer and fall during the world famous Tony Award-winning Utah Shakespeare Festival. They also have indoor productions, if is more to your liking.

The Neil Simon Festival also has plays during the summer which are held indoors at the Heritage Center during July and August.

We have had a lot of rentals, but the Red Door Lodging east side townhome, VRBO #361886 was our first foray into the vacation rental business. This cottage and the west side of the townhome next door are our new additions.

If you are wondering how far away some of these world class attractions are, here is a list of some of the most popular ones:

Utah Shakespeare Festival- .45 miles (about 4 1/2 blocks)
Neil Simon Festival- .27 miles (about 3 1/2 blocks)
St. George, Utah- 52 miles, (about 50 minutes)
Las Vegas, Nevada- 170 miles, about 2 hours, 30 minutes
Brian Head Ski Resort; 33 miles, about 45 minutes
Lake Powell- 155 miles, about 3 hours
Cedar Breaks National Monument- 26 miles, about 40 minutes
Bryce Canyon National Park- 80 miles, about 1 hour, 40 minutes
Zion National Park- 60 miles, 1 hour, 15 minutes
North Rim of the Grand Canyon- 169 miles, 3 hours, 30 minutes
Zion Park, Kolob Canyons- 25 miles, 35 minutes

There are a lot of other places to go in this part of the world and we must say that the sites are breathtaking and awe-inspiring! You might come away a changed person with a new outlook on life.

While you may come just to attend one of the festivals, there are things to do year-round here as well. It seems like with the amount of snow we have received this year that Brian Head and the other ski resorts in Utah might be open past June. After the snow is gone they have other things going on up in the cool night elevations of the mountains. Mountain biking, hiking, and lake fishing are always popular.

If you are more adventurous, you might try renting a Harley and letting the wind blow through you hair as you look up at the majestic cliffs of Zion Park without the car roof blocking your view.

WE DO NOT OFFER RATE DISCOUNTS THANKSGIVING WEEK (NOVEMBER 19-25, 2012) OR CHRISTMAS (DECEMBER 20TH- JANUARY 2ND, 2013.)

Location

Cedar City is the home of the Tony Award-winning Utah Shakespeare Festival, the Neil Simon Festival, and the Utah Summer Games. The Huntsman World Senior Games is only 50 miles south in St. George, Utah. Four-wheeler (ATV) rentals are available to explore the many miles of trails in Southern Utah. Just a few hours away are four national parks: Zion, Bryce Canyon, Grand Canyon and Great Basin, and three national monuments: Cedar Breaks, Pipe Spring, and Grand Staircase-Escalante. Cedar City Regional Airport is serviced by SkyWest Airlines with ticketing done through United and Delta Airlines. There are also several shuttle services that run several times daily to airports in Las Vegas, Nevada and Salt Lake City, Utah, where you can connect with the entire world. Golf is a thriving past time in this part of the world with dozens of courses spread between Parowan and Mesquite, Nevada.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2008

About the owner: Hi! I am Carolyn Murset. My husband and I moved to southern Utah 30 years ago. because of the magnificent scenery and the equally magnificent people. We had two children when we moved here and now have five. We have seven grand children who all love this part of the world. It is no wonder so many people visit here, and then end up staying. My husband loves to take pictures and has hung a few at our properties for you to enjoy. He is partial to black and white photography. Our youngest daughter also seems to have caught the bug and you will also see some of her photos as well. I love to sing, act, play the guitar and have hundreds of other interests. It was my idea to start down this road with a vacation rental and we believe it has been a great thing for us and for our fellow travelers. We like to travel, but don't seem to do it as often as we would like to. In fact, we still have not gotten our passports!

Why the Owner Chose Cedar City:
We bought this cottage and a very crooked little blue house next to it in 2008. We then built the gray twin townhomes in it's place. We think Cedar City is a great place for people to visit.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
We believe that after you stay in our lovely and comfortable cottage that you will want to book way in advance so that you can have another wonderful experience here in beautiful southern Utah.
