About the property

Over 9000 Sq Ft Of Space All Designed To Bring Your Family Face- To- Face.

The Family Lodge, located in Pine Valley, Utah, is the place for families of all sizes to gather. Our main lodge and living quarters over the garage include a total of 10 bedrooms; 1 Master Suite, 4 mini suites with full baths, 2 more bedrooms and 3 bunk rooms - beds for 30 people - and that's before we get to the portable cribs and air mattresses. Large bedrooms and loft areas means there is room to spread out.

Amenities include 8.5 bathrooms, fully equipped double island kitchen, a really Great Room all can gather in, a Game Room with pool table, ping pong, Foosball, air hockey and more. Three sets of washers and dryers are located on different levels. The Family Lodge has plenty of asphalt parking, but don't get in the way of the basketball hoop. The outdoor amphitheater is a great place to showcase family talents on a warm summer night. Large outside decks mean you can just sit and stair at the mountains. A small library is a quiet place for those one-on-one conversations parents like to have with their children. Oh, and don't forget the volleyball court.

The Family Lodge wants to make arranging a family reunion and stay as simple as possible. Our guide, Preparing for Your at the Family Lodge, is helpful when making plans for your family reunion. It helps you work through all the looming questions. Who is Coming? What will we do while we are there? How will we feed everyone? Where will everyone sleep? Download and print this important guide by on the link below the Owner Info.

All the bedrooms and bathrooms are ready for your stay. Plenty of linens and blankets, soaps and shampoos, even hair dryers. Detergents are supplied with the three sets of washers and dryers. In the kitchen are two dishwashers, a large Sub-Zero refrigerator with another refrigerator for storage on the lower level, a six burner gas stove, double ovens, 2 sinks, microwave and more.

You bring you, the food, a change of clothes, and leave the rest to us. (You might want your fishing pole or hiking boots.)

About Tom Goodman

Robert and Shirley Goodman (now deceased) envisioned a place where families could come together under one roof and fan or rekindle the flames that unit families. Aided by their partner, Ed Geiger, the Family Lodge is the realization of that vision.

The five surviving children of Robert and Shirley Goodman are working to keep that vision alive. The Family Lodge is indeed a place to turns the hearts of the fathers to the children and the children to the fathers.

Tom Goodman purchased this lodge in 2011

This home was so spacious, equipped with loads to do! The family had a great time disconnecting and spending evenings doing activities from croquet to basketball. There was always something to do to keep the kids (cubs) busy. The home has an amazing kitchen for family meals around the table or just to grab a quick snack from the pantry. The living space was super comfortable, the basement lounge area was perfect for relaxing on the couch with the kiddos to watch movies. There wasn’t a dull moment! The great room has the grandest view, with many great nooks to hang out in for a quick board game. Taking in the evening with dinner outside on the patio with plenty of outdoor seating was a joy. Beds were super comfy. After hiking in the nearby national parks, a nice soak in the tub was called for! We hiked half the trip but realized it was also fun lounging around the place, taking it easy! The grounds were so nice and you could tell there was a lot of attention to detail. I would stay there again, my entire family and parents truly loved every minute at this home away from home!

The cabin is amazing and the care taker even more so.

  • 5 of 5

We hosted a special family event at this gorgeous property with the fall colors all around the stunning views. It was comfortable, well kept and the care taker was exceptional at making sure we had everything we need. We loved everything about this and you will too! Family time at its highest quality.

Owner's Response: Thank you, Ann, for bringing your family to stay with us at the Family Lodge. Fall is a great time of year to be in Pine Valley and the lodge with its giant timbers just adds to that rich earthy feel. We hope you will remember us in the future when it is time to gather the family again.

Great for Family Reunion

  • 5 of 5

The Pine Valley Family Lodge was a perfect place for our family reunion, with lots of space for sleeping, eating and activities. We appreciated the spacious and pleasant rooms, the good attention to details, and the pleasant responsiveness of the management. With 42 of us together for a week, we never felt crowded and always found lots of fun things to do. Thanks for the great time!

Could not have been better!

What a fantastic place to hold a family reunion! From ages 89 to 18 months everyone was taken care of. The kitchen was well stocked, the sleeping accommodations were great. This was our best reunion yet and it was the lodge that made everything so easy. Thank you!!

Great family outing in a great family lodge

  • 5 of 5

My family of 27 had a wonderful time staying at this beautiful facility. The only negative was that we couldn't stay longer. We love Pine Valley and this lodge was perfect for our family. The facilities were clean, well stocked, well cared for and quite amazing actually. The owner and his caretaker were very cordial and caring and committed to our having a positive experience. I give this lodge the highest rating. This is the place!
