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?

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.

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!

Exceptional! 5/5 -

Unbeatable stay!

  • 5 of 5

After many years of trying to coordinate a destination Christmas for our family of 7 children and 12 grandchildren, we finally made it happen at The Family Lodge.

The pictures just didn't do this place justice. It was so clean and well cared for. Everyone commented on how it was even bigger than they imagined it would be, but carried such a cozy feel about it. We never felt like we were on top of each other and with 26 people in one home together for a week you would expect there to be a little bit of stir crazy, but it never happened.

The beds were honestly the most comfortable beds we have every used away from home, even the pillows were like a dream. (I always travel with my own, but found myself using the one on the bed each night!)

The kitchen was well stocked with everything we needed to make our meals and there was plenty of room for the food in the pantry and the refrigerators.

I could write for ever just saying how wonderful this stay was, but you should just rent it next to see!

Oh and thank you Mike for being on hand the couple time times we had a question. It was such a pleasure to meet and work with you.

Best Christmas to date for a very large family wanting to be together... not so together!

A real getaway

  • 4 of 5

Beautiful lodge, well maintained and family friendly. Our family of 32 were very comfortable. But, this property is secluded. If you wish to run to the store it’s a drive to Veyo (limited) or St. George (45 min). Hiking and game time were great. But limited water use during a draught was a set back. Overall very nice facility in a somewhat isolated area.

Breathtaking, serene, PERFECT!

  • 5 of 5

This home had unbeatable views, indescribable peacefulness, and plenty of room for all our guests. Everything in the kitchen was labeled and laid out so practically which made meal prep and cleanup so easy and smooth. The hosts went above and beyond with their hospitality and responsiveness. We were holding a retreat for breast cancer survivors and the deck was perfect for morning and evening yoga. We never had a shortage of anything - plenty of parking - EVERYTHING! It made facilitation of this event so smooth and stress-free. Cannot recommend enough!

Owner's Response: Thanks Ally, The Family Lodge is for more than just families. It is so wonderful to hear of the healing, and new hope, you provide for so many struggling with the devastating disease of breast cancer. I speak first hand having endured it with my wife. People can not only survive but thrive, but help is needed. Keep up the great work. Best, Tom
