Property description

The breath-taking view of 'our' distant mountain ridge greets guests as soon as they step though the front door of the Sanctuary. Known to move many to tears at first sight, the view changes throughout the day as the sunlight plays over the ridge. Snuggled next to Zion National Park, the Southwest-style Sanctuary sleeps 12; each in his/her own bed. The vaulted ceiling living room, with its warm fireplace and comfy couch and recliners provides the perfect setting to curl up with a good book or your favorite device for cruising the internet using the wi-fi access provided, or simply kick back and enjoy the view. When hunger strikes, there is the beautiful, fully equipped kitchen, with its granite counter tops and BBQ conveniently located just outside on the large, wrap-around deck to inspire both the novice as well as experienced chef. Don't be surprised if you spot a deer or some turkeys out the kitchen window as you prepare your meal! Linger over your favorite breakfast beverage as you contemplate the many activities available to you each day, should you choose to leave the comforts of the home for awhile. In addition to hiking and exploring in Zion, there's horseback riding, tennis, swimming, miniature golf, zip lines, and many other activities available at nearby Zion Ponderosa Resort for an additional fee. Also, Bryce Canyon National Park, Pipe Springs National Monument, Lake Powell, the north rim of the Grand Canyon and Cedar Breaks National Monument are 2 hours or less away. For animal lovers, taking a tour of Best Friends Animal Sanctuary in nearby Kanab is sure to warm your heart. When night falls, and a zillion stars are visible, you can pick out your favorite constellations while relaxing in a lawn chair or chaise lounge on one of the decks, or while soothing and rejuvenating your body and mind in the private outdoor hot tub. Later, you can lounge in comfort on the couch and love seats in the upstairs living room to watch a movie on the 63' HDTV, listen to your own music on the IPod hi-fi, or tune in to Sirius radio.
When it's time to retire, you'll climb into your very comfortable bed and drift peacefully off to sleep and wake up to do it all over again the next day!

As you approach Kanab you can also view dinosaur fossils and mineral stones at the Moqui Caves, or visit Best Friends Animal Sanctuary, which is just up the road. Kanab also is a great place to shop for souvenirs, catch a movie, check out a restaurant or two, or buy ingredients for a special dinner to prepare at home.

Year Purchased: 2006

About: The photo above was taken during our annual family Christmas vacation in 2014. Although we cannot allow 'guest pets' to stay here, Sunshine and Carson are our four-legged children, and they very much look forward to our family time in Utah each year. My husband and I both grew up and went to school in the eastern United States - me in New York, and he in the Chicago area. About 15 years ago, a mutual friend introduced us to each other over the telephone after I had moved to Los Angeles, and he to Dallas Texas. It was several weeks after that before we met face-to-face, but once we did, it was only 10 weeks short weeks later that he proposed! And the rest, as they say is history!

Why Zion National Park:
We have traveled to many parts of the world together since then, and everywhere we went we looked at real estate, seeking a place we could retire to for rest, and to rejuvenate our spirits - places like New Zealand; Edinburgh, Scotland; Sharm el Sheik, and Venice, Italy... My husband found places he loved and could have bought in any of those places, but not me. It wasn't until we visited Bryce and Zion, and were surrounded by the beauty and majesty of the mountains, the abundant wildlife and a zillion stars in the sky at night that I finally knew what I was looking for... My husband then went on a mission to find land in the area that we might purchase to build on. His search led us to East Zion Development, where we stayed for a few days in this spacious and beautiful Southwest-themed vacation home, with its fabulous, ever-changing view of the distant mountain ridge. The expansive windows, vaulted ceilings, gourmet kitchen, and incredibly comfortable furniture were impressive enough - but what made us fall in love with the place was the feeling of peace and serenity that filled us, just by being there. Needless to say, when we found out it was also for sale, we knew we had found our Sanctuary.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Close proximity to so many national parks, monuments and other attractions make this home an ideal base for exploring some of the most beautiful places on earth. Enjoy the outdoor life during the day, and when a zillion stars come out at night, relax in the comforts of our luxury mountain home. Zion Ponderosa Ranch and Resort is just 1/3 mile away and offers both children and adults a wide range of indoor and outdoor recreational activities.
