Stayed here for 4 nights - staff friendly, food good and beautiful location. We enjoyed sitting on our back deck overlooking the canyon.
The cabin we were in didn’t have great air conditioning and housekeeping didn’t really do much but maybe due to COVID? They did come by to see if towels needed, etc.
We were cabin 143 - two single beds in main room so perfect for our family of 4. About 5 minutes to Zion park , 30 to Springdale so we thought the location was convenient- also did excursions through East Zion Adventures and Coral sand Dune ATV sunset tour/ highly recommend.
We did get groceries from Springdale so we didn’t have to eat all meals out- microwave and toaster in our room but I believe bigger cabins have a full kitchen. Also ordered breakfast sandwiches the night before to pick up at 7 am before heading to do the Narrows in Zion.
Just a side note, I do think it would be a nice touch to have some info in the rooms for things to do locally. The front desk was not always super informed about things when I called prior to coming when I asked about Zion, shuttle/bus, etc.
I would recommend this place for families, especially with younger kids that will love the dogs, chickens, horses, etc.

Outstanding cabins near Zion National Park
We chose this option for its proximity to Zion. Check was a breeze. We chose a large cabin with two floors (two bedrooms and two bathrooms with jacuzzis). The cabin was immaculate, the kitchen was well appointed. There was a TV in both bedrooms with Netflix and Amazon prime options.
The ranch has an excellent restaurant, Cordwood but the animals were the highlight (horses—there was a 2 day old foal, dogs, ducks, bison, chicks)
An outstanding option near Zion

We stayed at the Zion Mountain Ranch the last week of June (2020). The cabins are rustic but very charming and have most of what you need. The property is a great escape from the bustle and crowds at Springdale. The restaurant is fantastic and all the menu items are fresh. Our kids couldn't get enough of all the farm animals, especially the chickens. ZMR is a special place!

A magical place to slow down!
If you are coming here, recognize that it is a ranch and that service and amenities of city life are limited but are greatly made up for in the land and homey nature of those that care for the ranch.
Stayed in a Meadow Cabin, it was nestled on a beautiful lawn that overlooked the Buffalo Preserve and the rest of the ranch. Coming here you are invited to embrace a slower paced, laid back way of life. Campfires every night, pups that roam around, horses that want to be pet are just some of the things that make you feel like you are in another world. The cabins have microwaves and mini fridges which is a gift if you are planing on staying a couple of days. They have DVD's that you can borrow for free because it is a ranch and the tv channels are not great. But who comes to a ranch to watch TV?!
All in all if you are looking for a magically unique experience this is the place to come! Loved our time here!

Top Ten Hotel Items to go Wrong and Unaddressed:
1. Unfriendly check-in
2. lack of resources upon check-in
3. Lack of guest manual in room
4. TV inoperable and only addressed when convenient to ranch
5. Lack of linens
6. Restaurant inadequate to handle guests
7. Air conditioner had no instructions, and no backing on remote ( remote sitting in a basket in the center of table)
8. Door scrapes when opening and closing: difficult to close and open.
9. EXPENSIVE: if all was addressed before our arrival, I would have a glowing report.
10. Have a calendar and itinerary of the activities...
