Quiet Canyon, Starry Nights @ HappyOurs Ranch Bunkhouse Between Zion & Bryce

Bedrooms 2
Property type cabin
Minimum Stay 3 nights


About the property

Cabin, 2 Bedrooms + Loft, 2 Baths, (Sleeps up to 8)

For almost 50 years, “HappyOurs Ranch” located close to Bryce Canyon National Park, Zion National Park, Lake Powell, the Grand Canyon, Coral Pink Sand Dunes and many other attractions here in Southern Utah's Color Country, has been a family get-away and retreat as we have watched our children and grandchildren enjoy and explore this 50-acre ranch. A unique, secluded mountain canyon with colorful maples, towering pines, oaks, and streams, will be your private family/group headquarters as you explore the marvels of Southern Utah.

We remodeled our unique, quaint and cozy cowboy cabin in 2010 to accommodate our guests and feel that it offers the finest experience of western ranch-style living with modern conveniences. This cabin is fully furnished with a full kitchen, living area with leather furniture, HD flat screen TV/DirecTV, DVD , WiFi, library, laundry, two bathrooms, and a unique custom-built bunkroom with two queen bunks and two full bunks with memory foam mattresses. Upstairs features a loft and queen bedroom for additional family and friends. A baby’s pack-n-play is available as well.

Outdoor living is at its best with two covered porches (one porch has two single beds) and a covered patio with gas barbecue and patio furniture where you can enjoy the secluded, tranquil canyon that we have enjoyed for so many years and want to share with our guests.

Up beautiful Lydia’s Canyon, just one mile off scenic Heritage Highway 89 in Glendale, Utah just far enough the peace and silence will amaze you while enjoying the star-filled night sky, hike to an ancient bat cave, or just relax and BBQ on the patio. This is the ideal location to enjoy all the treasures that await you in Southern Utah.

About Dave and Karren Nemrow

Dave and Karren, your hosts, have owned this property for 25 years, and for 30 years before that, it belonged to Karren’s folks. We are retired, but are young at heart and have many children and grandchildren. Our youngest son Hal and his wife Mercy and family manage the property, living just up the road. We live in St. George, Utah, in the winter, where we also have children and grandchildren, but come home for the Spring, Summer and Fall to this beautiful ranch. We built a log home here in 1990, and after retiring a few years ago (Dave was a high school art teacher and Karren was the high school secretary), decided to remodel the bunkhouse to share with friends, family and guests.

Dave and Karren Nemrow purchased this cabin in 1990

Why Dave and Karren Nemrow chose Utah

Grandad's old bunkhouse, up Lydia's Canyon one mile north of Glendale, Utah and a mile off Hwy 89 is secluded and quiet and has forever been the cherished spot and gathering place for family and friends. It's close to so many wonderful places to visit like Zion NP, Bryce NP, Grand Canyon NP, Lake Powell and many more!

What makes this cabin unique

'HappyOurs Ranch' in Lydias Canyon is the most beautiful, rustic, secluded, quiet, private canyon retreat from the fast paced hustle bustle of today's living. It's like turning back the pages of time to a tranquil valley that you will fall in love with. You will enjoy the convenience and close proximity to the best attractions in Southern Utah. Come be our guest!

Review of Quiet Canyon-Starry Nights

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at the Quiet Canyon-Starry Nights. Dave and Karen were so welcoming and made us feel right at home. It is a great place to stay for a family with kids as they had a nice playground and bikes to help entertain them, along with beautiful woods and canyons all around. We went for some nice hikes around the place. The bunkhouse was so cozy and made us feel right at home. Thanks for everything! We hope to be back!

A lovely, quiet place to take a break.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the Bunk House for 1 week with 2 adults and 3 children. It was extremely well presented and comfortable. The setting is very quiet, but there are local shops about 5mins drive away. We would love to come again!

Idyllic Retreat

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from a third stay at happy ours, with the inimitable Karren and Dave as gracious hosts. Immaculately clean upon arrival as always, stocked with everything you will need, quiet and secluded, though close to all Southern Utah attractions and amenities. Whether you are looking for a perfect home base for seeing the spectacular sights in Zion, Bryce Canyon, Coral Dunes... or just a quiet getaway to unwind and recharge, you will be thrilled with this property.

Nicest People Ever!

  • 5 of 5

Dave & Karen are the nicest people ever - thoughtful, accommodating, easy going and friendly! The beds were very comfy, and all the supplies you need to make yourself at home. We spent our week going between Bryce (about 50 min) and Zion (about 30 min) - both absolutely beautiful. My girls really enjoyed feeding carrots to the horses! We loved having 2 bathrooms, and used the gas grill to cook dinner a few times.

Love the Bunk House!

  • 5 of 5

The Bunk House is the perfect place to stay when visiting Zion and Bryce. It is such a cute place, beautifully decorated, and the owners are delightful. Make sure you visit with Dave and Karren for a few minutes during your visit.

Best Cabin for a gorgeous vacation

  • 5 of 5

My family (4) loved staying at the Bunkhouse! We were so close to the canyons and Zion. The cabin was perfect, clean, homey, and quiet! Our boys are 11& 8 and loved feeding the horses and exploring. Karren and Dave were attentive to any requests but not the least intrusive. We would love to return and visit again.
