"My husband and I stayed in this beautiful cabin for 3 nights with our 3 kids (16, 14, 10) and couldn't be happier. I love being outdoors but want comfort you can't get with camping! We debated about choosing it over staying at different hotels nearer to each of the parks. The cabin was much nicer since we had way more room than a hotel and were able to stay in one place. There are no hotels between Bryce and Zion. The drive to each park was easy with Zion seeming to take a little longer, but not uncomfortably so, due to the 12 mile drive from east side park entrance to the visitor center. (cabin to Zion visitor center = 1 hour). Coming home at the end of the day to the comfortable, lovely cabin, where we could cook our own meals, was a treat. The layout of the rooms (master on 1st floor, a double on 2nd floor, a double and another room with 2 twins in basement) worked very well. Great mattresses and very clean and new-looking bathrooms. Kids loved the huge tv area with comfy couch in the basement and the ping pong table. There was even a handy chalkboard to keep track of their competition. We adults loved the seating in the family room, the gas fireplace and the beautiful view from every window. I'm sure if it had been warmer we would have used the deck. Having a laundry room was very helpful. The kitchen was well-appointed (e.g., cooking oil, spices) and had everything we needed to cook. We had purchased our groceries in Kanab, UT (at a small, but more than adequate, store called Honey's) on our way up from the Grand Canyon. We were glad we did because there were no other grocery stores on 89A on the way up and the Chevron station was not at all what we expected -- just a gas station with a handful of very basic but expensive items. I don't see how you could use it to buy your food for a few days. We drove past Duck Creek at a later point but it really didn't look worth stopping in. There were, however, several restaurants up and down 89A on the way to Bryce and Zion, that looked like they might be worth trying. We were a little nervous about arriving at the cabin at 9pm in the dark, but it was easy to find the house and check-in. Communication with the manager was easy and very helpful. We would absolutely recommend this house. We hiked 2 days at Zion and 1 day at Bryce. If we had more time, we would have returned to Zion again. It was our favorite and you definitely need more than 1 day for it!"
