  • Beautiful oasis in Southern Utah

    "Harmony house is a very clean, neat, well stocked and appointed home in southern Utah in close proximity to a number of "color country's" unbelievable natural attractions. My family spent 7 wonderful nights at Harmony and were thoroughly satisfied with our stay. We used it as a home base for our visits to Zion National Park (both parts) as well as a full day trip to Bryce Canyon National Park about an hour and a half away. I would visit again without hesitation and recommend it highly. Home only a few days and longing for return."

  • Views extraordinaire!

    "We have thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Grant Gulch House. It is quiet, convenient to the Park, well equipped, and charming. We would stay here again without reservation if we are ever in position to return."

  • Great basecamp for enjoying Zion.

    "We stayed at the Orchard for 3 days as we explored Zion National Park. We would repeat this trip again, including staying at the Orchard. The owners of the Orchard have the rental of this house down to a science. Everything is well organized, clean and the owners are excellent host, that were happy to answer any questions over the phone. My memories of this road trip include the two national parks we visited but also, the amazing backyard at the Orchard; were we would have our morning coffee and after a long day sit down and recap the days events or play a card game surrounded by such a serene backyard. Have already recommended this property to friends."

  • Family Trip to Zion, Bryce and North Rim Grand Canyon

    "The location of this house cannot be beat. A cheap flight into Las Vegas and two hour drive north to a beautiful place. Very private for sure and quiet for hanging out at night after exploring the parks. Zion is about 15 minutes away, Bryce and the Grand Canyon are two hours in opposite directions. The owner was very helpful in coordinating our three separate parties arrival from all around the country. Property was clean and well maintained. I would recommend this property to others for large parties. Plenty of space for everyone to find their privacy. The only minuses that we would have, are that there was only one wine glass and not quite enough chairs outside for everyone to be comfortable. Great stay!!!"

Zion National Park Travel Tips

Nature Lovers Will Enjoy Staying at Zion Vacation Rentals

Zion National Park is Utah’s oldest and most popular national park. Designated in 1919, the park is characterized by unique rock formations and striking canyons. People who enjoy exploring the outdoors, hiking, mountain biking or horseback riding will have ample opportunity to do so in Zion. Trails of varying distances and difficulties cater to all levels of abilities. There are also shuttles in the park which allow you to explore one way and catch a ride on the way back or vice versa. While there are only private lodges in the park, many rental homes are just a short drive away. This means that visitors can enjoy not only the natural beauty of Zion but also other nearby parks such as Bryce Canyon. Because most rental homes are on private land, visitors can have fun quad biking and four-wheeling without damaging precious natural resources.

Country Relaxation at Zion Cabins

Many cabins available for rent are in fact spacious homes that can accommodate extended families. As most cabins are tastefully furnished and well equipped, you should soon feel right at home. Expansive living areas, decks with barbecue facilities, large fireplaces and comfortable bedrooms are the order of the day. Vacation homes offer an affordable way to enjoy an extended vacation with the family. If you enjoy the outdoors and nature, you will need a week or two to explore the wonders of Zion National Park. Staying in a rental home allows you an opportunity to do just that without breaking the bank. It also means you have the facilities to make meals on your own timetable and pack picnic lunches for your days spent exploring.

Things to Do near Zion Lodging

The obvious natural attraction in the area is Zion National Park. There are some amazing natural attractions in the park which divide the area into four main sections. The Zion Canyon is where you can see the Court of Patriarchs, the Angels Landing, the Emerald Pool and The Narrows. Kolob Terrace has beautiful winding back roads which include the well known route called The Subway. Kolob Canyon offers a wonderfully scenic drive which takes you to the impressive Kolob Arch and to Taylor Creek. The last section is Highway 9 which takes you along the Canyon Overlook Trail, the Checkerboard Mesa and through the 1.1-mile tunnel. The terrain is quite rough which means you can’t drive from one section to another within the park. Instead, you need to gain access through the three main park entrances.

There are numerous hiking trails in Zion National Park. One of the more well known and popular routes is Angels Landing. This is a challenging climb that takes you up some steep paths close to the canyon rim. It’s not a trail for those that suffer from vertigo but it is an incredibly beautiful route. Some of the other challenging routes include: the Parunuweap Trail which follows the east fork of the Virgin River; The Wildcat Canyon Trail which is in the Kolob Terrace section of the park; and the West Rim Trail which has awe-inspiring views. Some of the shorter trails are paved which makes it easier to explore with friends and family that may not be as sure-footed.

Zion National Park also has extensive biking trails. These range from winding paved trails to challenging single track routes that’ll get enthusiastic mountain bikers going. For novice riders, it’s advisable to stick to the shorter main routes and take careful note of the trail grading and markers to make sure you stay on track.

Horseback riding is another pastime that can be enjoyed in the area. There are several local tour operators that provide guided day excursions on well trained horses.

When to Visit Zion

No matter what the season is, the Zion National Park area is scenically beautiful. In the summertime, the red rock of the canyon walls almost seems to glow from the heat. In the wintertime, there seems to be crispness in the colors of the area that result in excellent photographs.
