About Alisha Neil
Mark Newman and his family have owned and has enjoyed this ranch for over 15 years. When asking Mark why he bought this property, he said ' I bought it so I had a place to go where no one could bother me.' Our family is from Riverton Utah. We are the outdoor/sporty type. We have spent many weekends hunting, fishing, hiking, riding motorcycles, ATVs and horses at this ranch.
Alisha Neil purchased this Cabin in 1997
Why Alisha Neil chose Lyman
It's located right between Fish Lake and Capital Reef National Park. Also, many miles of hiking and ATV trails can be access directly from the front porch.
What makes this Cabin unique
We love making time to spend at Horse Valley. If we want to relax, there is no quieter place. If we want to plan a hike or adventure of any kind, the options are endless. There is a refreshing and revitalizing feeling that comes from a few days spent at the Horse Valley Ranch.

Had a great time with our family will be coming back next year!!!
Property was beautiful, but you feel like you're walking on eggshells b/c of an overzealous owner!!
Arrival- there were many flies buzzing around the inside of the house. House wasn't clean -piles of dead flies in the window seals, dirty fridges with many expired items taking up space. Also a very "funk" smell coming from the downstairs bedroom area -like a dead animal. Chose to ignore all if these negatives -had a great time at the property. We even did laundry, cleaned kitchen, swept, and killed many flies before we left. Worth mentioning -we dealt with 3 different people from the time we rented the cabin till our actual stay. Paydon was nice in the beginning when we first rented the property. Turned out to be a little impersonal as he wouldn't answer my calls, but instead sent a text message saying to contact Shasha when I tried to reach him closer to our rental date. Shasha turned out to be his sister, Alicia. No complaints about her -easy to deal with. She ended up traveling to the UK shortly before our stay, so she passed us off to Brenda, the mom. At first Brenda seemed nice. She answered any questions -no issues. It wasn't until our stay was over and I sent her a text message to thank her, that Brenda turned very nasty. She told us that we treated the property more poorly than any other guests (maybe they don't get many guests). Safe to say that we were all aghast that she would say this especially due to leaving the property borderline cleaner than when we arrived. One of the kids threw up on a sleeping bag which we tried to clean, but was too large to fit in the washing machine (what else could have been done?). Said the house cleaner found gum on the floor in the kids room. Brenda sent pictures, so it appeared that the gum was a simple matter of picking it up and throwing it away. She also claimed that we broke a picture. The picture fell down randomly when my wife was standing in the hall. Tried to put it back, but it was not secured very well at all (the reason it fell down in the first place). Tried calling Brenda right away to apologize & discuss the issues. She wouldn't answer my call & later sent me a text message saying she was watching a movie. I texted back & was very apologetic, but never got a call back (impersonal & unprofessional). Claimed via text it took 4 hours to clean house (may want to look at hiring a new cleaning person). Didn't know that they would file an insurance claim if cleaning was too long. Brenda's change in demeanor and attitude left a very sour taste in our mouths and made us want to warn others.
While it is true that this stay caught us at a time when management of this property was changing hands, and that the house is truly a ranch house with the occasional dead fly, the reason for the up-charge and insurance claim is very understated in this comment. This family DID leave the house dirtier than any previous renter. They exceeded the number of occupants allowed in the house, allowed in numerous pets who left messes in the house, and clearly did not clean as well as they thought. The sleeping bag that the child threw up on was wadded up and stuffed in a closet and had to be thrown away. The pets left muddy paw prints on bedspreads and sheets. Ground up chips were left in the carpet. The multiple pictures knocked off the walls had been hanging there for years and no previous renter had disturbed them. The farmer who manages the fields in front of the property told the adults twice that they needed to stop turning donuts in the alfalfa because they were damaging it. Leaking garbage bags were left on the hardwood floor. Furniture was moved and not replaced. Bed skirts were removed and left who knows where. Stuff was smeared on the walls. Yes Brenda was probably a little unprofessional but to be honest, she is a housewife. She doesn't like conflict and was more upset than you know that the house we trust to families like yours had been treated so poorly.
Amazing cabin, far better than expected
The cabin was even more spacious and well situated than the pictures. Awesome views and centrally located between Capitol Reef and Fish Lake with additional lakes and ponds closer by for some quick fishing trips. Excellent place to visit.
a ranch "house" is different then a "ranch house" (for those of us from the East)
amazing property in the middle of no where if you are from the city but in the middle of everything if you love nature and the milky way. Nicely cared for. Clean and comfortable.
Horse Valley Ranch
Nice comfortable cabin, only thing I'd recommend is if your going to stay take your own grill and propane the ones there are not very clean and in pretty tough shape plus if your afraid of mice take sticky traps we caught several. Other than that really comfortable.
Great Place to Stay
Once a year our family meets in Utah from all over the country, to ride "off-road" dirt bikes. We all met at the House in Horse Valley Ranch. It was secluded, but had all of the things necessary for our stay. I even heard my Father say "When we come here next year we won't need to bring as much stuff as we did this year". The accommodations were the best we have had and we have been meeting up in Utah for 19 years. The house was nice , there were plenty of beds for all of us and the owner was very accommodating. The stay was affordable and Dish Network was provided in the Family Room. We even had a pool table to play on when it was raining and we could not ride. We plan to stay here next year.
