About Vickie Moyle

Owners, Hank & Vickie, quit the pollution of the big city twenty years ago and moved their family to the Sunset Canyon Ranch...and have never looked back. We wake up in Zions every day! Need we say more!

Vickie Moyle purchased this house in 1992

Why Vickie Moyle chose Utah

We fell in love with Zion National Park when we had a vacation home in nearby St. George, Utah thirty years ago. We always dreamed of owning a ranch and then one day, after five years of searching, the most enchanting place in the world presented itself - an old famous ranch bordering Zion National Park. The ranch had been used as a location for several movies through the years and we fell in love.

What makes this house unique

When you drive into the gates of The Sunset Canyon Ranch you are enthralled by the stunning view of Kolob and Cougar Mountain. Down a long steep drive into the canyon, your heart melts as you view the green pastures, surrounded by white fences. A lovely creek runs through the entire property and cottonwood trees line the banks. Several ponds are claimed as home by ducks and a variety of fish. This is a veritable jewel oasis in the desert. But the best thing of all...and the story behind the name...is as the sun settles for the day our canyon comes aglow with stunning orange colors. The peace one feels in our magical kingdom is second only to the majesty one feels in Zion National Park.

Imagine a private, unique interlude with Zion sans thousands of tourists. Nestled in a deep canyon beneath the red rock and volcanic mesas of Zion National Park, you’ll find the perfect, very exclusive, hideaway for your vacation rental. Green pastures, a gurgling stream, ponds and ancient trees create a stark pastoral contrast to the raw, wind-sculpted red mountains of Zion. This 750 acre working ranch is bordered by Zion National Park and BLM land and is centrally located for your day visits to Zion, Bryce, Cedar Breaks, the north rim of the Grand Canyon, Lake Powell and Las Vegas.

Loved it-four old friends could not have landed in a more perfect, wonderful place!

  • 5 of 5

Vickie provided a place that had everything we needed. The house and property exceeded what we all imagined. The beauty of Zion Park was a short distance away; however, the intangible part of Zion-the sacredness-was felt on the ranch. The beautiful covered porch looking out at the rock ridges and rushing stream was our favorite place to relax. We watched and listened to the 10 or so hummingbirds that were frequent visitors. At night sitting on the patio, we star gazed until our comfy beds called. The ranch was a perfect place to prepare for the day and come home to after a day of hiking, and it was a wonderful place to explore and enjoy on its own. I will remember the kindness of the owners, the smell of cedar and juniper, the sounds and sights of the birds and water, and most of all-the underlying peaceful silence of this very special place. In Gratitude, Susan

Top of the line!

  • 5 of 5

My siblings and I spent 5 nights here and the entire experience was excellent! Super quiet, private location so no worries about anyone above, below, or next to you. Huge well stocked kitchen, awesome master suite, so much extra room! Vickie had some great tips for hiking in places that weren't crowded, and at the end of the day when we were all exhausted from walking, the pool helped to stretch out our sore muscles. I would highly recommend staying here!

Best HomeAway stay!

  • 5 of 5

Vickie's property was the perfect fit for our family National Park vacation! Absolutely beautiful location! The house had all the comforts of home. After a long day of hiking, the back yard small creek waterfall and patio was so relaxing to come back to. Our kids had so much fun fishing, swimming, looking for frogs and lizards and exploring the ranch. So much to do, so little time to get it done. Oh and the beautiful night sky and stars! Stargazing was perfect! This was the best HomeAway stay ever!!

Thank you Vickie and family for opening your ranch to us. We will definitely come back!

Wonderful house in an amazing setting

  • 5 of 5

We had a great week as a family. The pool was great. And we even took a hike while there. A little drive to Zion, but worth getting away from the crowds

Outstanding home with all the amenities

  • 5 of 5

Vickie and Hank were really great and we even had visits from 2 amazing dogs every day. We felt right at home and the house was immaculate with amazing touches. It was the best stocked VRBO we have ever stayed in. We loved the location on the West side of Zion, close to the Subway hike. Away from the rat race of all the tourists. Highly recommend this home!
