Zion's Roost is an ideal location that is central to many of Southern Utah's most visited places and events. For those coming to experience the world-class hiking, we have day hiking packs with basic necessities, trekking poles, first aid kit, emergency shelter & emergency satellite rescue beacon provided on request for no extra charge! Sorry, but no pets are allowed inside or out. This keeps the house suitable for those with pet allergies and allows wildlife to remain in the area.
-All lots in this area are at least 5 acres. You'll have plenty of space!
-There are two houses on the property, a main house and a guest house. The guest house is what is pictured and what is available to rent.
-The guest house is more than 150 feet away from the main house and has it's own separate driveway.
-You'll have strong WiFi and won't be bothered by any bandwidth hogs! The guest house does not share internet with the main house. It has its own dedicated internet service and router.
-Save time and money by cooking meals in the fully functional kitchen.
-Full-size washer and dryer for your exclusive use.
I live in the main house with my wife and 6 children ranging in age from 3 years to 18 years old. We all love to travel. Some of our favorite trips have been to Hawaii, Guatemala and Belize. I'm a big hiker and backpacker. I love this area and am familiar with many of the popular things to do as well as some of my own secret gems! I'm happy to give you tips and advice on where to go if you'd like.
-The beds in rooms #2 and #3 are bunk style beds. The bottom bed in room #2 is a double and has a regular (non bunk bed) mattress. The bottom bunk in room #3 also has a regular mattress. So, all ground-level beds have regular, nice mattresses and will sleep 3-5 people depending on whether you double up in the queen and/or double bed.
-Both top bunks have a weight limit of 200 pounds and have standard bunk bed mattresses. We cannot put thicker mattresses on the top bunks because of design and safety factors. Due to the weight limit, climbing involved & basic mattresses, these two beds will not work well for most adults. Please take this into consideration when thinking about sleeping arrangements for your group.
-The 2nd and 3rd rooms in this house are quite small. There isn't much more space than what the pictures show. I like to make sure everyone has the right expectations!
-Zion's Roost is about 1/2 mile down a county-maintained gravel road.
-Guests are welcome to smoke outside, just not inside the house.
-We do not have satellite or cable T.V. We have 38 over-the-air digital T.V. channels and the televisions are connected to the internet for Nexflix, Amazon etc.
-The nearest stores are in Cedar City, about 20 minutes away. So be sure to stock up on supplies on your way here. We will start you out with some soap, shampoo and toilet paper. But if you've got a big group or are renting for several days, you'll probably need to bring some more of your own.
-Only one mile from the Kolob Canyon section of Zion National Park and closer to the main gate of Zion NP than St George.
-Close to many other popular outdoor spots such as Red Cliffs, Kanarraville Falls, Cedar Breaks National Monument and countless others.
-Great place to stay for events like the Ironman, St George Marathon or Shakespeare Festival.
-Guests will need their own transportation. There is ample space for parking.
-Because it is a rural area, there is no public transportation.
