About Denise Workman
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.
Denise Workman purchased this Cabin in 2001
Why Denise Workman chose Duck Creek Village
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.
What makes this Cabin unique
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.

Hidden gem away from crowds equidistant from Bryce and Zion (50 min away from each)
In addition to an exceptional host, this cabin is a perfect getaway to relax, hike, or stay in. If you’re looking to go to Zion or Bryce, the cabin is in the middle, making it perfect to visit both. Plenty of room for many adults to stay, an incredible view from the deck, and nice extra touches from the host like extra towels, k-cups, and a bbq with extra propane in case it runs out. The kitchen comes ready to use with pots and pans, the bathrooms supplied with all amenities, and the laundry machines downstairs are great in case you need a wash!
Off the beaten path, quiet, and cozy. Denise was a wonderful host and made sure we had everything we needed, even placing extra blankets on the beds prior to our arrival since it was predicted to be very cold at night. There was plenty of fire wood in and outside to keep up warm wherever we were. We truly enjoyed waking up in the morning, making coffee, and watching the birds at the feeders on the deck. If you are looking to disconnect, meet some friendly locals in town, and enjoy the beauty of nature I highly recommend this cabin to you. Thank you Denise for helping to make our vacation a wonderful one!
NOTE: When you do stay here, follow the directions Denise emails to you and NOT your GPS!
Great home and amazing for a getaway! The balcony views are gorgeous. You literally have the view of Strawberry point which is beautiful. Cabin has all the essentials. No WiFi and phone reception made us tune out and enjoy even more amongst our family. Wishing I would’ve had more time to enjoy it even more!
Peaceful, secluded, between Zion and Bryce Canyon
Beautiful cabin, birds, squirrels to feed (provided), definitely off the beaten path. 2 great porches with view. Indoor and outdoor fireplaces, gas grill. What a place to come home and relax in after a long day of exploring. Would definitely return. Didn't give it a 5 due to a few minor issues (old food filling cabinets, personal items in drawers, and evidence of critters in basement). We enjoyed our week so much and appreciate that we had a chance to stay here!we will be back!!
It was beautiful!
The perfect getaway
Great location. So much to do in the area and the cabin is beautiful. So remote and peaceful. We will definitely be going back. Thank you for a great weekend
Driving Directions To This Cabin: Exit at Cedar City (take the first Cedar City exit if coming from Vegas and turn right on that main road). Take the Highway 14 Junction turn right to Cedar Breaks (or if taking the exit above, turn right at Center Street). Follow all signs to Duck Creek Village. After passing Duck Creek Village (about 5ish miles), take a right at the turn off to “Strawberry Point” (small, green sign here, so keep you eyes open) and travel on this dirt road. After the 2nd cattle guard (it is about 5+ miles between the 1st and 2nd cattleguard), turn right at the second intersection, “N Mt Drive”. Turn at the first left on “Artist Trail”, then turn right at the second intersection “Inspiration Drive”. You should see the cabin off to the right from the next intersection of Inspiration Drive and Strawberry Lane - it has a blue roof. Lastly take a right on an unnamed street with the “Dead End” sign. Turn right into the second (less steep) or third driveway (use a 4-wheel drive only). 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.
