  • A Wonderful Spot to Gather With Family and Friends

    "Our son was getting married at The Canyons and we needed a home away from home where we could host family and friends from around the country. Deer Oak Lodge was the perfect spot. This beautifully appointed home became "Wedding Central" as we hosted out of town guests, relaxed with the wedding party, and forged new connections between the newly merged family. Everyone marveled at the lovely setting, beautifully decorated and just like you would expect in a gracious home. And, even with a house full of people staying with us, we NEVER ran out of hot water. :-) If you are looking for a special place for a get away in any season, this is a GREAT place to stay. The only caveat is that there are lots of stairs at the front entrance or coming in from the garage."

  • Perfect 2 family house to enjoy the whole area

    "We spent a great week in the area. The house is very well situated between Deer Valley and Park City and not far at all from The Canyons."

  • Great weekend getaway spot

    "My family of six spent a long weekend at this great condo in St. George. The complex has a bunch of different pools that my kids loved and it is fairly close to Tuacahn and Snow Canyon State Park. We had a blast exploring the red rocks and canyons around St. George. The condo is well furnished and has everything you could need. The complex itself is a little older but is well maintained and the grounds are really pretty. The bed in the master bedroom was not the most comfortable but that is our only semi-complaint. I would highly recommend it!"

  • Perfect Home Away from Home

    "We were so busy at all the parks in the area we wished we had more time to just spend at this wonderful condo. It literally has everything from an amazing hot tub to a state of the art washer and dryer! And, yes, ladies it has a hairdryer too! The master bed was very comfortable. The athletic park has been built behind the unit; but during the four nights that we were there it was never in use. We plan on returning with our two sons in the future and staying at this same wonderful condo. It is only 5 minutes from Moab and 10-15 minutes from Arches NP."
