About the Property

4 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Sleeps 12

Equipped with all the comforts of home (electricity, water, propane stove/oven), you enjoy vistas from a great room, dining area, fully-equipped kitchen, two complete bathrooms, and four bedrooms which can comfortably sleep 12. There is an outside fireplace to enjoy the cool evenings while roasting marshmallows and watching flames dance and stars glimmer. The large porch attracts chipmunks, squirrels, blue jays, Clarks nutcrackers, hummingbirds, and a variety of finches with the right kind of seeds and feeders filled to the brim overlooking a small hill of irises. Deer can sometimes be seen slipping onto the property to find a cool place to nap in the manzanita. There is plenty of parking not only for vehicles but trailers filled with ATVs, dirt bikes, and/or bicycles. Two tent pads are cleared for optional camping on the 1/2 acre lot. The 350 degree, sunset view on Strawberry Point is easily accessible by vehicle or ATV. There are many views on all the trails of the geologically rich Cedar Mountain Formation as well as an abundance of local flora and fauna. This cabin is found at the end of a graded dirt road which can be traveled by vehicles as well as ATVs.

After enjoying a matinee at the Shakespearean Festival in Cedar City, head up Highway 14 to enjoy the indescribable sites of the Cedar Mountain area. Start with a short hike at the top of the mountain to view the oldest trees known, the Bristlecone Pine. Next travel eastward and turn off to Navajo Lake to fish trout amongst aspens and pines.

Dropping down in elevation continuing on Hwy 14, turn right at the Duck Creek Visitors Center and stop in for more information on the area. A few miles down that same Forest Service Road, you fill find the trail head for a short, scenic hike to Cascade Falls where water pours from a large lava tube connected to Navajo Lake. Back out on Hwy 14, Duck Creek Pond and Aspen Mirror Lake afford a few more fishing venues as well as scenic views in the clean, cool air. In the early morning or evening, you can also observe eagles swooping down for fish to feed their young. Duck Creek Village is the next stop with its quaint small town feel and modern amenities including a bistro, pizza/pasta restaurant, ice cream parlor, gas station, hardware store, and souvenir shops. Back out on Hwy 14, on the right is a local favorite restaurant, Pinewoods Restaurant. On the left is horseback riding and the paved road leads to Mammoth Creek and onto Panguitch Lake with more fishing opportunities. Continuing a few more miles on Hwy 14 is the turn off to the cabin, which is on the right. Leading to the left is the dirt road to Mammoth Cave with its large opening lava tube where you can explore the design and complexity of the volcanic system of the area. Traveling along the meadow to Zion View Mountain Estates, you may see deer, antelope, elk, blue jays, blue birds, a variety of finches, wild turkeys, wildflowers, not to mention three scenic trail heads (one biking/hiking and two for ATVs). Upon reaching the cabin, you can glimpse the large porch and top floor balcony from which to view the valley below and the main attraction, Strawberry Point. If you continue down Hwy 14 ten miles, you come upon the end of Hwy 14 at Long Valley Junction which holds a local farmer's market Saturday mornings. There are a variety of church congregational meetings in the area on Saturdays and Sundays.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2001

About the owner: My husband and I are approaching retirement. I work as a Science teacher and my husband as an Electronics Production Manager. We are a couple who truly enjoy the out-of-doors. With a variety of experiences boating, skiing, fishing, ATVing, dirt biking, hiking, and camping, we love to share those experiences with others. These experiences enriched our lives and the lives of our family.

Why the Owner Chose Duck Creek Village, UT, USA:
The irises planted on the hill of the property come from the garden of the original owner of the lot, my mother-in-law. This cabin was built to fulfill a promise in receipt of the family owned property. We fulfilled that promise, but before that time, we enjoyed the area for many years, since the early 70's. This area has supplied our lives with a myriad of memories from collecting firewood and fishing to fireside chats and favorite family meals. We make yearly trips to explore Mammoth Caves. Duck Creek Pond, Aspen Mirror Lake, and Panguitch Lake became favorite fishing spots. Our growing family spends time here each year doing our favorite activities and finding new ones to add to the fun. We have shared this cabin with friends, and they have enjoyed the 'Home away from Home' feel with new memories for them around each corner.

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
We have always enjoyed the view of Strawberry Point, but never went there until we built the cabin. We then decided to venture out and see if we could find the point via a road as we, using binoculars, noticed there were people on the point at various times of the day. We found the point, only about a five-minute drive from the cabin, and since that time, it has been a favorite vantage point to prioritize our thoughts and appreciate the beauty of our surroundings. This out-of-the-way cabin affords privacy and a unique experience near many trails as well as dirt trails within our small community that can keep children close and give them some freedom to ride and explore.
