Overview

About the property

3br, 3ba, Hot Tub, Sleeps 10

Along with breathtaking views of the surrounding mountains, this scenic mountain home is situated to give you an unobstructed view of sunrise through 2 story tall picture windows in the main room. Step outside onto the oversized deck and listen to the silence. From your deck, you will often see deer and other wild life passing within a few feet of the house. Take in the scents of sage carried by the breezes of this southern Utah high desert location. When the sun goes down, gather in the hot tub for a view of the night sky few have ever seen.

A stay at Buffalo Ridge also gives you unlimited access to all of the facilities of the zion ponderosa ranch resort including their extensive pool and recreational facilities. Visit the Zion Ponderosa website.

Enjoy the upscale furnishings in a western motif that includes genuine log beds in every room, native american indian artifacts, high-end leather furniture, animal hides on the floor, and artwork supporting the theme name of the house, 'Buffalo Ridge'.

Preparing meals will be a family affair with your fully equipped kitchen featuring high-end stainless steel appliances, granite countertops, and 'great room' arrangement. Entertainment will be provided by a 50' high-definition plasma tv and blue-ray dvd player. View your daily pictures full screen (!) on this TV via its USB and memory card slots.

Your vacation home is located a short 600 yard walk from Zion Ponderosa's extensive pool facilities. And 1/2 mile from the boundary of Zion National Park. You can walk into the park from you home! A vacation at Buffalo Ridge is an experience you and your family will not soon forget. It is a vacation where you will truly be able to 'get away from it all'.

About John Marsala

Always wanted a place for family and friends where outdoor activities abound. Love Utah and it's fabulous National Parks

John Marsala purchased this house in 2011

Why John Marsala chose Utah

At Buffalo Ridge, you can truly get away from it all. The peace and beauty of this location is without equal. From the house, you can walk into Zion. The Grand Canyon is a 2.5 hour drive, Bryce a 75 minute drive, many other, off the track, State Parks are also close.

Springdale has become VERY crowded as the popularity of Zion has increased. During the busy months, April thru October, the parking lot at the West/Springdale entrance becomes full. People are directed to park in town!!

The advantages of being on the East side are:

1. Avoiding the crowds in Springdale

2. Having easy access to drive to Springdale for dinner; a wonderful 30 minutes drive

through the park!

3. Having easy access to Kanab, another beautiful drive of 35 minutes in the opposite direction. Kanab has the best restaurant in the area.

4. Easy access to Bryce. It is only a 75 minute drive from the house.

5. Easy access to the off-trail hiking of the East/high desert side of the park where you can hike down any of the numerous washes. You can explore areas where few others go!!

What makes this house unique

Buffalo Ridge is a beautiful home. We have chosen furnishing and conveniences to please the most discriminating tastes.

Guestbook comments from the owner

You can really "get away from it all". My partner and I kept commenting on how quiet and peaceful our stay at Buffalo Ridge was. The way the house is situated on the property gives you total privacy; the windows were open all the time!

Excellent

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful & high quality getaway retreat! Decor was perfect and kitchen was thankfully well stocked!!! The hot tub was medicinal & relaxing after a long day of hiking and being open to the stars at night was magical! Also, appreciate the 3 full baths and comfortable bedding. Thank you :)

Fyi: Only issue was the coffee maker was very slow, not sure why?

Perfect place to stay!!

  • 5 of 5

My family felt very much at home in this rental. It is spacious and comfortable. The views are spectacular. The house is located close to Zion National Park but far enough away to allow us space away from the 4th of July crowds. John's notes were extremely helpful. We enjoyed several hikes that started close to the property that were not as crowded as the more popular hikes that originate in the park. I would suggest that renters not rely on Zion grocery stores as prices are high. Purchase groceries before arriving in Zion.

Beautiful scenery and beautiful home!

  • 5 of 5

This house is awesome, we had 10 people on our annual Zion trip and the house EASILY accommodated all of us! Zero problems!

The information given to us (for directions and entry) were easy to understand and we never needed clarification.

I would 100% suggest this home to friends and I will be staying here again!

Beautiful home and great location

  • 5 of 5

John's home is a quiet, comfortable home near Mt. Zion. The location is great for accessing the park. His recommendations for visiting the park and nearby sites are great. I will definitely stay again on my next visit.
