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.

Please note, I have a NO PETS policy.

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 Orderville

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!

Great Zion Retreat

  • 5 of 5

Excellent house close to the eastern Zion gate. Very nice, relaxing home and we really enjoyed our stay here with nice kitchen, BBQ and hot tub. We enjoyed some of the amenities of the Zion Ponderosa Ranch such as the restaurant, pool and you can book some activities there. Close enough to Bryce Canyon that we did a day trip there also.

Amazing and comfortable

  • 5 of 5

My kids and I spent 3 days at this cabin and had a great time! The cabin was very comfortable and fit us all (11 of us total). The hikes were beatiful and amenities at the resort were great! We couldnt have been happier and definitely would love to return. Thanks for everything!

Amazing Retreat Home

  • 5 of 5

My family and I loved staying at this beautiful home. It is located in a peaceful location where we all had the privilege to enjoy nature yet also feel part of a larger community as it is part of a resort with great amenities. Location was great for us as well because our goal was to visit Zion and Bryce - both are within driving distance for a day trip (scenic drive). The host is a wonderful person who shares his expertise and love for this area. Home is clean, well stocked and simple beautiful. We were a large group of 12 family members and we all enjoyed time together as well as had enough room to retreat for some personal time. Would highly recommend this home to any family and we looked forward to rebooking this home when we return to Utah for vacation.

Excellent location and very well kept property

  • 5 of 5

Our family would highly recommend this property if you are planning to vacation near Zion and/or Bryce Canyon. The location is perfect, as it is just outside the east entrance to Zion (which is the less crowded entrance), and therefore, closer to Bryce Canyon as well (about 1hr15min or so drive). The house is very well kept with more than enough room for our guests (6 adults and 5 small children). While it is in the Zion Ponderosa area with other lodgings nearby, it is secluded enough to where you never felt people nearby or disrupting in any way. The hot tub was also a very nice bonus after hiking in the national parks. The owner, John, is also very responsive to any questions and provides a very helpful guide for visiting the area. We would definitely recommend this property for anyone visiting the area.
