Our home is located on Zion Ponderosa Resort property, just 8 miles from the east entrance of Zion National Park. Come enjoy the peaceful serenity of our 3 acre property filled with Ponderosa Pines. Hikes like Observation Point (favorite), Cable mountain and others are just minutes from our home. Our home is perfect for accommodating a family or two out on summer vacation, but cozy enough for a couples weekend. Come enjoy seclusion while still being close to Zion, Bryce, and resort amenities!
Our beautiful 3 bedroom 2 bathroom home is set back on a 3 acre wooded lot. It is 1.7 miles inside the Zion Ponderosa Resort property, which is bordering the east boundary of Zion National Park. We are 8 miles from the east entrance of Zion. The lot is peaceful and quiet, the only usual noise is the swaying of the towering Ponderosa Pines. The home is perfect for a cozy get away for a couple, or a larger family looking to experience Zion, Bryce, and Zion Ponderosa Resort.
Bedroom 1 is upstairs and has a queen bed with an on suite bathroom and walk in closet, sleeps 2. The closet is actually quite large and is usual where my wife and I set up a pack and play for our little ones, we provide a pack and play stored in this closet. Bedroom 2 is downstairs and has a queen bed with a closet, sleeps 2. Bedroom 3 is downstairs and has two bunk beds, both twin over full, also with a regular closet, sleeps up to 6. Bathroom 1 is located in the upstairs bedroom. Bathroom 2 is shared by the two downstairs bedrooms. Extra pillows and blankets are in each of the closets for the pull out couches.
The kitchen is fully equipped with all cooking needs including fridge, stove, oven, water dispenser, pots, pans, cups, plates, utensils, crock pot, coffee maker, toaster, griddle, outside grill. The living room downstairs has a large sectional which has a pull out couch in it. There is a ottoman that has extra blankets, a 42" tv, dvd player, and a real wood burning fire place. The upstairs loft has two sofas, the sofa against the wood wall is a pull out couch. There is also a second 42" tv, and dvd player.
Outside there is a full length front porch and back porch. Two large pick nick tables are out on the back deck for you to enjoy meals outside. There is a propane grill out on the back porch for your use. An outside fire pit is located on the west end of the house where you can roast smore's and and enjoy the beautiful night sky. The large surrounding Ponderosa pines provide shadowing for most of the property and house throughout majority of the day. Because of the shade provided, 6500 ft elevation, as well as fans all throughout the house the house stays nice and cool even in the summer. If cooler temperatures are desired in the house we have provided three A/C units that can be turned on. There is one in each of bedrooms 1 and 2 and also one for the common areas of the house. Also cracking a window and turning on the fans will cool it quickly in the evening. . In addition to the wood burning fire place there is also a furnace that will warm through the whole house. We have stayed in our cabin during both cold seasons and hot and have never had a problem with being too cold or hot.
There is also a washer, but no dryer, just a clothes line to hang dry in the back yard. There are coin operated washer and dryer facilities available at Zion Ponderosa if needed. Everything is fully furnished for the house!

Zion Ponderosa provides activities great for all ages as well as dining options if desired. Swimming in their pool is provided by us, as well as some other free activities like tennis courts, basketball courts, play ground, volley ball court, ping pong, and billiards. Many other guided activities are offered for additional cost, check out their website (URL HIDDEN) for more details. I can't give a higher recommendation than getting a dutch apple fried ice-cream at Ray's, their onsite restaurant, after a long day of hiking.
Due to the remoteness of the cabin, water is delivered from the Ponderosa Resort to the water holding tanks at the house. Water for the house is pressurized and safe to use. Since it is held in our tanks we suggest drinking from the 5 gallon filtered water jugs we provide. Water from the tap is usable for cooking, showering and everything else. We will provide all drinking water desired during your stay.
Phone service is dependent on provider. I have Verizon and it works great, even has 3G most of the time, although it is a bit spotty. Other providers may not work well. Zion Ponderosa is the closest place to go and get free wifi if needed. There are places like their coffee bar, restaurant, pool or other common areas you could go sit and connect to the internet if needed.
Just love and enjoy our family cabin like it is your own!
