About the property

We own this home & also have 4 other homes that we manage in this same community

We own this home and a brand new home right next door vrbo 848203. If needing more space for a larger group this may be your answer.

About Sharon Quesenberry

My husband and I love the southwest. When we found this house we knew this was it. We are big hiker and just love the location to all the National parks. We wanted to be able to share this home with others for their family vacation and retreats.

Sharon Quesenberry purchased this house in 2012

Wonderful Stay!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at Sharon's home near Zion Ponderosa Ranch Resort. The house is very well equipped and well kept, has beautiful views, and is in a perfect location. Sharon is a great host who was very helpful when we were planning our trip. Our family really enjoyed having access to all of the activities at the resort as well as being a short drive from the entrance to Zion National Park. Hope to return soon!

Wish You Were Here

  • 5 of 5

Arriving via Las Vegas, our route cut through the main highway showcasing some of Zion's best features. Our three shuttles arrived throughout the day, with mine arriving last. After a long day of International travel and logistical headaches, we arrived to the first basecamp late at night. The homes seemed to glow and pulse with the energy from the 40+ strangers from all over the world, as we set our workshop into motion. Our is a collective of creative pioneers seeking embedded experiences to inform their own creative story- artists, climbers, photographers, spoken word poets, writers, adventurers and creative pioneers all gathered in Zion for a week long expeditions and workshop. Our group has now traveled to locations in Yosemite, Banff, Colombia, Norway and Virginia. For all of our travels, we've found no base of operations better suited for our group's needs. We had the fortune of renting two of Sharon's neighboring homes on the Eastern rim of Zion National Park and used both as basecamps for our week long expedition and workshop. The location proved to be the perfect base of operations for our adventures that included hiking, rock climbing, canyoneering, swimming, relaxing and our daily/evening workshop and presentations. Organizing an event of this magnitude requires an enormous amount of site specific information from knowledgeable locals. Sharon provided resources and assistance at every turn. We wanted for nothing and by the end of the week, our basecamps were filled with new found friends, laughter and life long memories. If you want to experience Zion and beyond- I can't recommend these homes and Sharon highly enough. For ideas on your own travels to see how we took advantage of this incredible location, you can follow us at:

An awesome stay in a magnificent home!

  • 5 of 5

We selected Sharon's mountain home as our "base camp" for exploring Zion and Bryce.

We needed enough BRs and baths to accomodate our group of 7 adults (not all couples), and this house really delivered in terms of location, space, comfort and amenities.

A kitchen stocked beyond our expectations, dependable WiFi, beautiful setting, oh, and given the size of this beautiful home, I don't know how they do it, but an IMMACULATELY CLEAN home as well.

Sharon's communication with us before and even during our trip was greatly appreciated. Her instructions and tips were accurate and thorough.

We came back each day to a home worthy of being an upscale retreat and conference center.

Plenty of outdoor space (wraparound decks AND private balconies besides that), combined with multiple open and cozy spaces all throughout the house.

We were pleased in every way.

Family reunion near Zion

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 8 adults gathered from UK, Maryland, Wash DC, and Northeast PA for a mini family reunion. How lucky we were to find this place. It was spacious, well-equipped, comfortable, and exceptionally clean. We loved Sharon Quesenberry. She was kind, helpful, informative and very easy to work with. The location was absolutely perfect. Although Zion was very close it was also very crowded and hot on the two occasions that we visited it. So instead of spending all our time in Zion, the home's location allowed us to very easily visit Bryce, Page, North Rim of Grand Canyon and Lake Powell on day trips. We would definitely recommend this property. We loved our stay here.
