About the Property

3 Bedroom, 2 Bath, Full Kitchen, Laundry W/ Beatiful Meadow And Mountain Views

1408 Lydia's Canyon Rd, Glendale, UT, 84729

Bryce, Zion, Grand Staircase, Grand Canyon, Shakesperean Festival, Fishing are just a few of the many attractions you can do and see with-in a few minutes to 90 minutes of our home.

Beautiful nature setting right in the middle of Southern Utah's national parks. We are only 18 miles to the East Entrance of Zions National Park, 52 miles to Bryce Canyon National Park, 95 Miles to the North Rim of the Grand Canyon, 55 miles to Utah's premier Shakespearean Festival, and just minutes to the west entrance of the Grand Staircase National Monument.

The home is located 1.4 miles up Lydias Canyon road on the west side of Scenic Highway 89. While cell phone coverage is very spotty, we do offer internet access and use of our home phone for domestic calls.

This was Grandma Sylvia and Grandpa Cornell (Polly) Chamberlain's home. It has since been expanded from the original home with less than 1000 square feet to over 3000 square feet. The entire second floor of over 1400 square feet is now a separate guest house with complete privacy.

The fully private second floor is accessed from external stairs to the deck, or via a private driveway that wraps around the house to the second floor level. You will enjoy up to three bedrooms, two full baths, your own laundry, complete kitchen with full sized stove / range and refrigerator.

Plenty of linens, towels, pots, pans, and dishes for up to 10 guests.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1985

About the owner: Lee and Mary Jo Chamberlain-(now 80 and 81 years old-) purchased this farm home from Lee's parents in 1985 and retired to the 'Ranch' in Lydias Canyon in 1993. Lee grew up in Glendale and on his dad's other ranch, Hogs Heaven located at the top of Zion's Narrows. His and Mary Jo's knowledge of Southern Utah can help you plan the perfect visit to this area they call home. Lee and Mary Jo occupy the lower apartment and are available for consulting about vacation plans and area trails. The upper apartment is completely isolated from the lower apartment and the lower apartment is never rented out. They have also lived many years in Moab, UT, so if your plans include visiting Canyonlands, Arches, or Capitol Reef National Parks and all points in between, please just ask. They can direct you to all of the best areas that you haven't seen. Even if this is not your first visit to Southern Utah.

Why the Owner Chose Glendale, UT, USA:
This was Lee's parents home in Lydias Canyon. Lee grew up in Glendale working the ranch in Lydias Canyon and Dry Wash just across Highway 89. When they were planning their retirement from the BLM, Lee and Mary Jo asked his parents if they could purchase their home from them. Lee's parents lived a few more years in the home after they sold it to Lee and Mary Jo before moving into Glendale.

The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
Lydia's canyon is a little green oasis in the middle of a much more arid Southern Utah. With nearly 100 springs and a small stream running through the canyon, the meadows stay lush and green from spring until the first hard frost. Deer, turkeys, squirrels, porcupines, and even the occasional mountain lion and bear have been seen in the canyon. In the fall, the maples splash red among the yellows and browns of the fall foliage. At night, the stars blaze in color. Being over a mile from Scenic Highway 89, the evenings are quiet and peaceful.
