Perfect quiet escape. Country setting. Far enough away to be peaceful, but close enough to everything to be convenient. 35 minutes to Zion. Within 30 minutes to 4 state parks and 15 minutes to Costco. We raised our family here, and can show you many places that only the locals know. There are over 200 fruit trees and a large garden that you can help yourself to. This is only seasonal(April-October). You will love the location and its proximity to so many great places. We do have another home closer to Zion if you are interested in that. The VRBO listing # for that is 1183958. The last pictures are of the home in LaVerkin(which is only 25minutes to Zion) they have "other home" listed in photo captions.

Home was well equipped with all the home away from needs. The outdoor toys weren't always available so we weren't able to use them when we wanted. The host couple is very nice and accommodating. The home is located about 30 minutes outside of Zion National made for a nice visit. Within minutes of Silver Reef and about 30 minutes from St. George. Would definitely use this property again.
Fantastic Central Home Base For Hiking Southern Utah
When looking for a home base in Southern Utah, there were a lot of factors we had to take into consideration. There were so many places we wanted to hike in the area, plus we wanted to go to Southern California and Las Vegas, Nevada. Well, after searching high and low, long and hard, we found a diamond in the rough in a little town with about 820 people in it. It met all of our requirements and then some.
We knew we wanted to hike in Zion National Park as well as the Dixie National Forest. We also knew there were an abundance of trails in the St. George Area. So, trying to find a centrally located place to all of this was our first priority. Then we wanted access to Interstates, if possible, to be able to easily get to Las Vegas and Southern California.
Well, Leeds is located about 15 miles north of St. George right off of Interstate 15. And it is right in between Zion National Park and Dixie National Forest. The access to the Interstate is quite effortless. And, there are hiking trails that are walking distance or a few miles away. We hit the jackpot with this place.
The property owners live near by and they are literally some of the nicest people you will ever meet. They had the right balance of checking in on you to make sure everything was okay and letting you enjoy your stay uninterrupted. The husband/father of the family was very knowledgeable about all of the surrounding area. He told us about some places that no tourists would commonly know. If you stay here, I would pick his brain.
We loved our stay here. It is a perfect locale to launch your outdoor activities.

Clean and comfortable
The place was comfortable and all facilities were all working. The house overall is clean especially the fresh beddings.
Great, Quiet and Cozy Location
We made a quick trip to Zion National Park for a few days and all I can say is that we will be back again! The house was perfect, and the owner wanted to make sure that everything was ok, and her helper even stopped by to let us know what activities were in the area. If you are looking for a place as a base to visit Zion National Park, Kolob Canyon, Cedar Breaks National Monument, Bryce Canyon and many of the other beautiful places of Southern Utah, this is the place to stay!
Great Vacation Home!
Shelley's Vacation Home is a great place to stay! The house is very clean, nicely decorated, recently renovated and beautiful. They have put a lot of upgrades into this vacation home. I would highly recommend this place. Check-in and check-out is a breeze. They make your stay very comfortable! Thanks Shelley!
Very comfortable home
We arrived early and finding the house was easy but if you arrive at night it's difficult to find. The outside of the house is not that well taken care off but the inside of the house is clean and comfortable and it is a nice home. Finding the light switches took some searching the fruit in the farm were delicious and it was nice to go to the lake with the kayak and SUP . The property is quiet and nice to recharge from those long days sightseeing. The owner checked on us and was a great host, highly recommend this home
