About the property

7 Bedroom, 7.5 Bath Private And Family Friendly On 1 Acre, Sleeps 30+

Located in beautiful St. George, Utah, this 10,000 sq. foot, family oriented home is a gem! While it is centrally located close to popular activities, its 1 acre lot provides both privacy and a wide array of activities that all age groups can enjoy.

This unique home, Ruthie’s Retreat, is a home like no other—and we know because we have looked! It is the perfect setting for your large group retreats and vacation needs. Well appointed, with 7 spacious bedrooms and 7.5 baths, it provides comfort and flexibility to meet your needs.

Unique to this property is a grand piano (how “grand is that!!”); a well furnished kitchen with seating for 20+; family room with open concept to kitchen area with 70” flat screen TV and DVD player; pool table; dart board and fireplace. Also nearby is the large theater room with its 120” screen TV and full surround sound. The Theater room provides plenty of seating for a large group to enjoy the movies together!

Outside in the private, enclosed courtyard, you will find a full outdoor kitchen, heated private pool and spa. The pool is fully enclosed and is code operated for your families safety. This is always a favorite spot, expect to spend lots of fun in the sun out here.

Connected to the courtyard is the dedicated game room and gym. No worries about the weather—it’s heated and cooled, so you can play year round---rain or shine! The game room has Ping Pong, Air Hockey, Foosball and a Wii console, for endless fun. The connected full gym has two basketball hoops (one is adjustable for the younger ones…. or the older ones that want to brag about their game!), indoor soccer goals and a Volleyball net. A ½ bath and drinking fountain are located conveniently in this area.

If you’re still looking for things to do, through the door in the courtyard, is a huge, private, fenced backyard, with durable artificial turf. Here you will find different areas for your enjoyment and fun--a beautiful waterfall, gas fire pit, trampoline with built-in sand pile, swing set, 3-hole putting green and soccer goals . Night lighting provides an opportunity for great night games to add to your family memories!

To accommodate your group needs, the home has 3 washer/dryer sets, 4 refrigerators and a well stocked kitchen. Of course there are enough towels and more importantly pool towels for everyone!

We honestly tried to think of more fun things to include in this home, but we just ran out of ideas! If you are looking for the perfect fun home for your vacation/reunion needs, this is it. We think it’s the perfect place to make memories that will last forever, and a place you’ll put on your yearly bucket list.

About Dennis Clark

We are from the State of Utah and enjoy doing things with our family and enjoying the many activities that the great state of Utah has to offer. Because we have a large family, we wanted to find a place that would accomodate us all, so we started looking for home that would fit the need we had.

Dennis Clark purchased this estate in 2011

Why Dennis Clark chose Washington Fields

As we were looking we came upon this house. It was built by a family that liked to have a lot of fun and enjoyed being together. This was reflected in their well loved and cared for home and the variety of activities they incorporated in the property. It was amazing and we saw nothing else like it. It was hands down everyone's pick. Our family has enjoyed it so much we decided that other large family groups such as ours might also like to enjoy this unique retreat. We added 3 large family bedrooms and 3 baths to make the accomodations just right for a large group to enjoy.

What makes this estate unique

This home has so many fun things to do that no one ever gets bored...the adults may get tired, but the kids never get bored. When we first walked in the house, it felt like a 'home' not a house, and many people comment to this. It's a place you can sit back and just relax, and enjoy the spirit of the home. We even had one person come to see the home to condiser renting it and he said, 'Your description does not do this home justice--but I don't know how you can describe this!'. It's really hard to describe this very unique, fun home-- maybe someone out there will help us out?! It's so satisfying for us as owners to have others enjoy their stay, and see their smiling faces as they leave. We hope you will enjoy your stay.

Amazing house!!!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here with our large family and had a wonderful time! The house is well furnished like you are in your own home. There was so much to do we never had to leave the property which was great with lots of children. There was the pool, hot tub, the gym for basketball, badminton, or whatever , game room, the field, the trampoline, play pit, pool table, even a piano for us to use. The bedrooms are such that you have privacy and bathrooms for each! We could put the children to bed and then gather the adults for another couple of hours of fun. The moms even got to get up early and do zumba in the gym! So many fun activities! The owner was wonderful to work with. It was a great time and lots of happy memories!

Fantastic Get Together!

  • 5 of 5

First off I would like to thank the owners. They have done a great job of putting this rental together for others to use. We have a big family, and this home accommodated us very well. There is so much to do, we didn't have to leave the house. Starting with the pool and hot tub. What fun and entertainment this was for everyone day and night! We would just close it, when no one should be in it, because the kids would stay in all day! Then the fire pit, the tramp and play area. the kids had so much fun. Parents could just watch and enjoy themselves. The soccer field was amazing, and comfortable to lay on! The Easter egg hunt out there was awesome. Now onto the game room. We stay at a new place every Easter, and Ruthies Retreat is hands down the best we have been too! Basketball, volleyball, badmitton tournaments. Ping Pong galore, along with the other games. Unforgettable, it really was. Now to Theatre room! Every night when everyone started wanting to relax, we would go in there and just enjoy! The sofas were so comfortable and the whole room and sound system was perfect! The kitchen was well appointed with what we needed. Each family prepared a meal, and it worked out great. We will stay again! We did our grocery shopping before we arrived, and just enjoyed our stay. We would recommend this home to everyone. thanks again for taking such good care of us!

Fantastic location for a Retreat!

  • 5 of 5

Ruthie's Retreat was an amazing location for our company's retreat! The amount of amenities available is truly outstanding. If our employees weren't playing football on the massive turf field, they were swimming, playing ping pong, billiards, or playing an intense game of basketball on the indoor court.

The owners were extremely helpful and great to work with.

We loved it and would highly reccommend it to anyone who is even toying with the idea of coming here.

It had everything we wanted. The children and the adults had a great variety of activities. Constant fun in a relaxing environment. Plenty of room for an extended family vacation. The owner was great to work with. If we do anything like this again we would definitely use this facility!

Best family reunion place ever!

  • 5 of 5

Thanks to this wonderful home we were all able to feel comfortable and enjoy each other. We have 11 grandchildren 9 under 4 years old. So with that many little children and babies it is hard to do any traveling. There were enough fun things to do right there in the home. We used the pool every minute had soccer tournaments and a family dance in the wonderful indoor gym. the sand box under the tramp was so fun for our little ones and we could all sit down together for dinners. We loved it. We went on a kid friendly hike in the red rocks and to the touacahn outdoor theatre and the men went golfing all just minutes away. It is a great place to stay. Thanks again for the memories!!
