Skiing not your winter sport of choice? This cabin is right in the heart of snowmobiling country.

Enjoy the peace on Mammoth Creek, the sound of the creek in your backyard, 10 miles outside of Brian Head.

Drive from Brian Head across one of the newest of America's Byways-Route 143 to Mammoth Creek and Panguitch Lake.

This beautiful log cabin is a wonderful place for a peaceful vacation getaway. The mountain home is the ideal vacation rental for large gatherings or family reunions. Beautiful Mammoth Creek runs right through the back yard and has great trout fishing. The creek is stocked and there are also natural fish. There is a new pool table at the cabin and plenty of activities, or just relax on the porch and watch and listen as the stream flows by. Enjoy stream or lake fishing, mountain biking, hiking, ATV trails, or explore Mammoth Cave.

The clear stream is ideal for fishing and adds to the pristine beauty of the southern Utah mountain setting. The sound of the creek through the open windows and the fresh evening air combine with the tall pine setting, drawing you into a state of natural relaxation.

The vacation rental cabin is within 20 minutes of Panguitch Lake, store, gas, and restaurants. Zion National Park, Bryce Canyon National Park, Cedar Breaks Monument, and the Utah Shakespearean Festival all surround the area. Brian Head Ski Resort is a short 20 minute drive, yet you have the beauty and stillness of the winter mountains. (4-wh drive is required in the winter months.) They are all within easy reach and make the perfect vacation destination.

The cabin has a large living/family room with fireplace, and a large area with a second fireplace. Both rooms are beautifully paneled in light pine. There is one bedroom with a queen bed and one double downstairs and one bathroom downstairs.

There are two sets of stairs leading to upstairs bedrooms. Each bedroom has at least two beds. There are two kings,2 queens,5 doubles,and 4 twin beds. The other full bathroom is upstairs.

Enjoy this great vacation rental cabin with your family and friends.

What an amazing location and comfortable stay!

  • 5 of 5

What a great experience! The house is comfortable and stocked with all of the basics. We tested the kitchen capacity with a Thanksgiving feast for 12 people...the kitchen was well stocked with all of the pans and pots needed. Plenty of beds and all were comfortable with plenty of extra blankets and pillows. An absolutely beautiful property with a spring fed creek flowing just 50 yards from the house. We slept with the window open and listened to the sounds of the creek which was incredibly relaxing! The fireplaces kept the house nice and cozy as well! Great experience!

Wonderful fall getaway

  • 5 of 5

We had an absolutely wonderful stay. Our 5 and 3 year old sat on the deck and watched the turkeys waddle through the back yard right in front of them. You have to stay here to truly appreciate what this place has to offer. We will definitely be back.

The owners are pleasant and super easy to work with and responded promptly when we had questions.

  • 4 of 5

Kitchen was well stocked with necessary pots, pans; cooking, baking items and utensils. Bedrooms have plenty of beds and bedding. It was a bonus to be right on the creek. The sound of running water added to the mountain experience. Farely safe for kids to play in because the creek runs shallow and slow at the cabin. A couple yards upstream from the cabin is a sweet fishing hole. Cabin is cute and comfy but could use some updating. It appeared the cleaning crew missed opportunities to remove mice droppings from corners, etc. Overall, we'd definitely return to this cabin again.

Great space in a beautiful setting

  • 5 of 5

My family and I had a blast at this cabin. Everything was clean an well cared for. The kitchen had everything you could imagine. I didn't even need to bring half of the supplies I though i would use, it was all there. The location was easy to find thanks to easy directions supplied by the owner. My kids and dogs had a blast playing in the stream on the property, every morning we were greeted by lots of wildlife. I will be visiting this place again soon.

Very Comfortable and Good Layout

  • 4 of 5

We stayed here for a week, and enjoyed every minute of it.

The bedrooms accomodate many beds each, and even with the multitude of beds, they are very easy to get in and out of. There are two sets of stairs leading to different parts of the second floor, this was quite convenient for both early sleepers and late night party-ers. The front yard and back yard are both entertaining, the front having kids swings, and the back having a large deck, fire pit, and of course the rushing creek. Plenty of parking available, we had 6 cars, a small trailer, and a small boat in the parking area. Our total head count of people was 22, and no one complained about being too cramp or the feeling of being in anyone's way. The only draw back is there needs to be a second fridge, we had to use all our coolers, and constantly refill with ice. We do plan on staying here again in the future.
