*Midway between Zion and Bryce National Parks, we are located in the picturesque mountains for Utah's National Parks. The Pondarosa Pine trees surround us with a backyard meadow view off a 1,500 sq. ft deck. This double-level deck has a large grill and tables and chairs for up to 45 people.
An equipped regulation Fire Pit on a point overlooking the meadow makes you feel the heavens are just above you! In the summer the Milky Way is almost right there! A supply of wood, camp chairs, skewers and fire starter are for your use.
Our elevation of 7,500 feet keep morning and evening summer temperatures cool and daytime temperatures around 85%. Can't predict much for winter except snow!!!
In addition, we have a game room (with pool table, table tennis, darts, foosball and elliptical trainer. Outside there is a full volleyball court, basketball, horse shoes, tether ball, ropes course, sandbox and multiple swings and hammocks.
A tree house for sleeping 3-5 kids is the launch pad for the 600 ft zip line across the meadow. In the summer of 2017 a Hoba Hut will be ready for another group of from 3-5 kids.

Watch out for the low estimates provided by Home Away. The Home Away system can’t seem to handle variable rates based upon the number of guests – their estimate is based on our rate for just 2 guests! Obviously, for the larger groups we specialize in, a quote in this range can be quite misleading. We have been working with Home Away to correct the problem.
The Chalet is halfway between Zion and Bryce on Hwy 89 (some call it a destination by itself!!) for the Chalet is a hub to a variety of activities from skiing or riding bikes down Utah's famous powdered slopes to adventuresome hiking through ancient river gorges bordered by sheer rock faces. Whether after a day of sliding down the Pink Sand Dunes, hiking to Calf Creek Falls near Bryce Canyon, or fishing in the beautiful clear rivers and lakes, you can unwind and reminisce of the day's pleasures in a hydrotherapy spa.
Others loved our place, you will too!! Just a few comments!
“Great base for a vacation exploring Zion and Bryce National Parks. This home was comfortable, clean and spacious for our family. Our children, 9 and 11, loved all the space outside, the obstacle course and many different kinds of swings and hammocks. We all enjoyed the beautiful views and peaceful location. The game area was really a bonus and so was the hot tub after a day of hiking.”
“Great location and wonderful people. You can't do better than this if you want a good place to vacation. Lots to do within driving distance too. But nothing better than sitting on the deck or around the fire pit in the evening......so peaceful.”
“Our FAMILY had a Great Vacation! The kids loved the zipline, and the Audlts loved the Deck! The view off of the deck was amazing. We had over 20 Grandkids and there was enough space and things to do we didn't feel like all the kids were right under our feet.”
“The cabin is bigger than it looks in the pictures, and has a lot of open living areas.”
“What a delightful place for a family gathering!! Our grandchildren are still raving about the wonderful time they had there. The location was ideal, the accommodations great, and the multiple activities at the cabin kept everybody enraptured, especially the zip-line. We were able to take short trips to Zion and Bryce National Parks, as well as other hiking activities up around Duck Creek and Navajo Lake. Indoor and outdoor cooking facilities and the fire pit made cooking and evening entertaining easy and enjoyable. Did I mention how much fun the zip-line was?
All of our contacts with the owners were positive and they were always helpful. We recommend this cabin and its location as a great place for any size family. We even got to use the fire put one night--great views of the stars at night. Tons of beds and room for all of the guests. Overall, I could not have asked for more--we had an amazing time!”
“We decided this year to do a family Thanksgiving surrounded by trees and snow and for my family with three young boys...this house was perfect! The location is beautiful and very convenient to Zion, Bryce Canyon, and Brian Head. When we weren't out exploring, we were relaxing back at the house in the hot tub and the boys could keep going with pool, fuzeball and ping pong available. Jim and Bonnie were very accommodating and available anytime we had questions. I would definitely recommend this house to anyone looking for a nice place to take a family for vacation!!!.”
Your day might start out with horseback riding, a visit to Cascade Falls, lava tube exploring at Mammoth Caves or snooping through the many rock shops in the area. For a day and evening adventure you can fancy yourself with a live play at the Shakespeare Festival in Cedar City, not far from Brian Ski Resort or Cedar Breaks National Park. The Tuacahn amphitheatre in St. George where evening performances are spectacular among a natural stage of red rock cliffs is another area attraction.
Who says you have to do anything! Schedule in a day off to rest and just stay at the 'Destination' and choose to relax in a tree swing or hammock with a good book, grill or cook your dinner at the fire pit. At dusk linger to watch the breathtaking sunset followed by twinkling stars showing up so you can witness the 'Milky Way ' in all it's splendor!. Later, if you're still feeling energetic you can socialize in the game room playing Pool or a faster-paced ping-pong game.

About the owner: We love the outdoors and have spent a lot of time in the High Sierra's and Lake Powell over the past 25 years. After living in Beijing China, Ghana Africa and Hong Kong it feels so good to be home. Three years ago we decided to remodel and build out our property for our family of 31+ to enjoy. But you know young families with jobs don't get as much time away as they would like. Our home is so comfortable and amazing we decided to share it! We welcome you to be our special guest.
