I’m so glad I discovered the Zion Mountain Ranch property which is right outside Zion National Park in southern Utah.
I have to admit this was best night sleep I’ve had all year! When I walked into my cozy cabin the heater was on blast and the suede comforters were so warm!
The breakfast omelet was amazing. It was incredibly relaxing to sleep in their cozy heated cabin and walk around to experience their ranch restaurant, animals, and gift shop.

We recently visited and had a lovely time. Since we arrived at night, we didn’t see the amazing view of the valley until morning. What a nice thing to see 1st thing when waking up. The cabins are cozy, warm and have plush sheets, duvet and pillows. They are away from the main lodge and offer privacy, which we always appreciate. Try to get a room on the ridge. The restaurant is farm to table and had delicious choices for both dinner and breakfast. The staff was incredibly friendly and helpful with recommendations for sights to see in the area. We will definitely visit again.

A fantastic place
I stayed at this very interesting Ranch and was very pleased with everything - despite my initial reservation, having never stayed on a Ranch before. We had a 2 bedroom lodge, which was spacious, well equipped and very comfortable. The fact that one bedroom was downstairs was an added bonus for those challenged by stair climbing.
The kitchen was well-equipped, bathrooms beautifully cleaned and beds very comfortable.
The staff couldn’t have been more helpful. The restaurant is well worth a visit - great food. In addition the views were fantastic, looking out on bisons grazing in the field next door and seeing those wonderful horses at the entrance, just waiting to be ridden - sadly, not by me! was a treat I’ll always cherish.
The location was perfect for trips to Zion Canyon, or onto Las Vegas. My one regret is that I could only stay 2 nights. I’d certainly like to return.

accommodations under-performing, but setting beautiful
Stayed in the cabin which slept 5 (included a loft and 2.5 baths). Room quality lacking as well as the house-cleaning. Futon in front of TV was droopy and just didn't look clean enough to invite sleep to say nothing of the bedding which came with it. Tissue ran out in upstairs bathroom and two days passed and house keeping didn't notice. I went downstairs and used another tissue, but the lack of attention to detail was annoying. Floor needed to be swept or vacuumed and you could tell than when beds were made, sheets were not changed as you would slip under the sheets and feel the grit that had been tracked in the day before. Toilet overflowed in master bath and toilets didn't seem to be thoroughly cleaned on a a daily basis. Unless you ask, they don't tell you there are on 50 gallons of heated water/day, so should you take a bath, savor it, unless you enjoy taking taking cold showers. If you have multiple guests in the cabin this can be a problem. Microwave and coffeemaker were old, quirky. The former took some trial and error to figure out time and start (a dial), and the latter brewed coffee that was luke-warm at best. For the amount you pay, you would expect more. There is not CTV so the best you'll do is remember to bring a bunch of your fav DVDs from home. No laundry machines in cabins, or in reception area either. The office has some but they are old, pixellated and not the best quality. Cordwood restaurant was pretty good but not as good as you would expect as a farm-to-table style rest. Dishes were either hits or flops. Hits: mac cheese, vegetable platters, soups; flops: apple crisps (dessert), vegan casserole. Service was on the slow side but we very much appreciated the waitress, Emily: she was cheery, smiled, friendly and worked her tail off! The marshmallow bbq pit was nice for the kids but when we went to purchase plain Hersheys bars they were out (again, attention to details lacking). Didn't see a buffalo in the 5 days we were there which was disappointing. I'm only giving this place 3 stars because there were some unique aspects that mitigated the under-performing aspects of this cabin. Setting and views were stunning. Room experience, really below par.

My b-day weekend!
Omg such an awesome experience. The thing I loved the most about staying here was it had a family owned type of feel to it. The cabins weren't directly next to each other, gave us a little privacy. Our room had a claw tub with jets, and the cabin was very cozy.
