About the property

Cabin, 6 Bedrooms, 4.25 Baths, (Sleeps 19)

Get away from all the hustle and bustle. Come sit by a cozy fire while drinking a cup of hot chocolate. Bring friends and family on a fun vacation up to Brian Head, UT located in the heart of Southern Utah's most beautiful landscapes. Great for hiking, biking, fishing, photography, 4-wheeling, skiing, snowboarding, inner tubing etc. Come and experience one of the most memorable vacations.

Our beautiful, sunny and spacious cabin is located in paved neighborhood of Trails at Navajo. It is nestled in the trees on the Navajo slopes with ski-in ski-out accommodations. We have all the modern amenities that you enjoy at home including a well stocked kitchen, stainless steel appliances, a large sunlit family room, extra-long dining table for all your family and friends and a bonus basement with large flat screen TV with a large selections of movies.


Our home is a 6 bedroom, 4 ¼ bath home with beds for 19 not including 2 queen inflatables and a port-a-crib. We have plenty of sheets, blankets, pillows and towels so no need to fill your cars with these. We also provide shampoo, conditioner, bar soap, soft soap, dishwasher soap etc.


We recommend that you take advantage of the wonderful ski and snowboard instruction available at Brian Head especially the kids camp at the Navajo Resort. It is inexpensive and fun. The resort offers both group and private snowboard or skiing instructions. They also offer lift ticket and lesson packages. Go to Brian to make reservations ahead of time especially during the holidays. Please be aware there are 2 ski resorts connected by a bridge. Giant steps resort has the more advanced skiing. There are also 2 inner tube parks.

Unless you are purchasing a package, we prefer Georg's for equipment rental. They have it all including skis, snowboards, snowshoes, cross country equipment and winter clothing. Ask for the Harpster discount.


The resort offers biking, hiking, 4 wheeling and fishing tours. On summer weekends in town there are several activities for the kids including alpine slide, zip line, climbing wall and bungee trampoline to name a few. There is also the new lake including a playground, basketball court, pickle ball court, picnic benches and fire pits. A short distance away is Cedar Breaks, Navajo Lake, Panguitch Lake and Bryce Canyon. We also enjoy the Shakespeare Festival in Cedar City in the Summer and Fall. They offer a variety of professional plays and even have baby sitting available. Go to for information.

We recommend that you drink LOTS of water on the way up. Sports drinks offering electrolytes are even better. The elevation of our home is 9,800 ft. The base at Giant Steps is 10,000 ft.

Food services are limited at Brian Head. Cedar City has a Smiths, Walmart and Lins for groceries. Parowan has a smaller store called Food Town. Please note it closes at 9:00 pm. There are also two small markets in Brian Head. They are a little pricey but great for forgotten items.

Most importantly…. Relax, enjoy, have fun and make yourself at home.........

About Gwen Harpster

We both love to ski, snowshoe, atv and hike so Brian Head was the perfect choice for us. Utah is a great escape from the crowds in CA. Living at the beach in California has spoiled us with cool summer weather. We also find cool temperatures in Brian Head in the summer. It's always a debate whether we like summer or winter better in Brian Head. Summer is great but it's hard to beat fresh powder and a sunny day with friends and family. We currently have 6 grandkids ages 0-6 who love coming up the mountain to ski, tube, swim and of course play with Grandpa and Grandma.

Gwen Harpster purchased this cabin in 2001

Why Gwen Harpster chose Trails at Navajo

We have been coming to Brian Head for more than 25 years. It is such a great, affordable family place in summer as well as winter. Since we enjoyed it so much, we decided to buy our own home. We instantly loved this house as soon as we walked in the front door. Just like our ad says, It is bright, sunny and spacious. We really appreciate the views from every window. Also, the layout was perfect for our family and friends. Plenty of room to be together or to spread out.

What makes this cabin unique

We love the fact that our home is in a paved neighborhood with city water and sewage. It can get really muddy reaching some of the properties in Brian Head.

The perfect escape!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at this beautiful Brian head property. The cabin was clean, and comfortable with everything we needed for a relaxing escape to the mountains. We loved all the nearby attractions. If you like the outdoors, Brian head is the vacation for you! Don't miss out on the amazing views from Brian Head Peak. Truly breathtaking! Gwen was wonderful to work with and was happy to answer any questions we had prior to our arrival. We loved our stay and look forward to another trip soon! Maybe next time in the winter for some snow skiing! Thank you Gwen & family for sharing your beautiful home with us.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the kind review and for being such wonderful guests. We would love to have you back in the winter to enjoy skiing on some of the best powder on earth. It is very satisfying to know that the cabin worked out great for your group and you enjoyed Brian Head and all it has to offer. Couldn't agree with you more, it's a beautiful place to enjoy all the outdoor activities or simply to relax. In addition, we find it to be the perfect place to escape the summer heat.

Large, fully stalked home nestled in the trees

  • 5 of 5

My group stayed in this lovely home over President’s weekend. Gwen was extremely friendly and informative before and during our stay. She must have performed quite a snow dance so that we could have lots of snow for our visit! Thanks Gwen!

There were plenty of bedrooms and bathrooms for our group of 3 families (6 adults and 7 kids). Everything was fully stocked and in great working order. The kitchen has any gadget you might need, and lots of spices/condiments. It’s also large enough to have several people helping out. The dining table sat our whole party together, which was really great.

The upstairs sitting room was a great room to escape the kids, but not as comfortable as the downstairs tv room with plush couches and cozy beanbags! The smart tv with surround sound was put to good use!

At first I thought the beds were ultra-firm but they were extremely comfortable. One person in our group was allergic to the down comforter, but there was an abundance of blankets to choose from so she just switched it out.

The showers worked great- good size, good pressure, even temperature, plenty of hot water and plenty of towels. The washer and dryer both worked perfectly.

The home is located just off lift 4. It’s a little tricky to find when trying to ski in, and requires a bit of a trek. We spent several hours playing in the snow just outside the home. There’s lots of room for sledding and snowball fights.

It snowed the day we left and Jeff came out to shovel the driveway and help us get out.

We had a wonderful time in this gorgeous home and would definitely stay again!

annual family snow trip

  • 5 of 5

The cabin was perfect, plenty of room for 11 adults and 3 children. Great table for late night games. Good location even though we didn't ski. It is very clean and with well stocked kitchen utensils and extra blankets. One of the best I have rented. Thanks so much for letting us stay in your cabin.

Perfect two family home

  • 4 of 5

Great family home! Well laid out with plenty of bedrooms and bathrooms. Clean and tidy upon arrival. Unfortunately a difficult ski in and ski out even for our intermediate level skiers. Quick 3 minute drive though down to lodge.

Owner's Response: So glad you enjoyed our home. I'm wondering if the snow conditions made it more difficult for your group to ski in/out. The trails and runs involved are all rated easy. We encourage our guests to please let us know if the trail has not been groomed especially after a large snowfall or they are having any problems following the trail. We provide details in our house booklet but would also be more than happy to help you. We are just a phone call away.

Fantastic Cabin, Location & Experience!

  • 5 of 5

Once again, we made it to Brian Head for Super Bowl weekend, and found this amazing place to stay. There was more than enough room for the 13 of us that made the trip. Everything was super clean and nicely appointed. Everything we needed. The owners were very responsive and helpful when we needed a bit of assistance. Great we will definitely look at again when we are ready to return next year.

Relaxing Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved this cabin! We have been coming to Brianhead for years and this is by far, the best place we have stayed. We would love to book this cabin every year! It was very spacious very clean and had everything you needed. The rooms were very spacious as well. Every room basically had its own bathroom! The bottom floor is private - so if you wanted to bring kids, you could put them all down there while the adults stayed up for a bit on the other floors! We ended up sledding in the driveway and it was very fun. I would definitely recommend this place.
