Perfect relaxing getaway
ZMR was amazing and the perfect getaway for social distancing. Right near the entrance to Zion and a short drive from Bryce Canyon - we hardly saw anyone on our trip and the cabin was cozy, clean and perfect for a couple - great view of the sunset as well. The staff was super attentive and helpful. Would highly recommend during these difficult times and will certainly be back!

Social isolation trip
This is the perfect, quiet and quaint little establishment that made you feel at home. Cozy by the fire in the restaurant with business burgers, to a romantic couple claw tub in your own person cabin. The staff was very friendly. The family of the owners were around with their dogs on the property and made you feel like you part of the farm. We were very alone during our trip aside from the staff and they were very accommodating. I cannot wait to bring my 5 year old daughter here for another trip. We are right at the top of the mountain, at the farm, and it was an easy trek down to see the park (driving). The farm was clean and had a great feel to it. Love this place!!!

A beautiful spot !
Just returned from a five day trip to Utah. We booked ourselves in at the ZMR for two nights. Our cabin was cozy with a beautiful view. Quiet and peaceful environment. The restaurant on the premises was great. Met some wonderful people. Will be returning next year! The ranch is conveniently located just 10 minutes outside ZNP - great location.

If you're looking for a kind of "moment", stay here
We love to travel and try to get away, small trip or bigger ones, several times a year. Our trip to Utah was on our bucket list, and we drove to all the parks - even a side trip to Arizona for some beautiful stops there, and I'm so happy to say everything lived up to our expectations, and in some places surpassed them. Zion Mountain Ranch was one of those places. If you want to be in town, surrounded by restaurants and t-shirt stores, and the bus route, then don't stay here. We stayed in town right when we got to Zion area because we needed to get gear at the outfitter and I had read/ researched that the main drag in town was where to catch the shuttle to the park, etc, so, we started our trip by staying in town. And it was fine. Nice hotel. Easy to get to the stores, blah blah blah. However, after we visited the park the first day, I had arranged for us to switch hotels and spend the rest of the time at the ranch - and I am so glad I did. THIS was part of the experience we were looking for. The big skies, the buffalo, the open spaces, the rooms with the front porches, all of it. To stay here is an experience. And did I mention the food? The restaurant on premises is AMAZING! All meals were cooked to perfection and tasted fresh and delicious. Put it this way -we stayed in very nice places, but this one was is the one we remember the most. It's kind of an extension of Zion in that it celebrates the beauty of the area, which is to be celebrated! Consider staying here, you wont regret it.

Eager to return to ZMR
The people make ZMR feel like home! Special shout outs to Shari, Nancy, Courtney, and Josie in particular. We enjoyed having breakfast at Cordwood everyday. We also had dinner there once. Zion is not known for its restaurants but Cordwood's food is excellent for the area. The location is convenient and provides for a refreshing change of scenery just outside the magical mountains of Zion. Also easy access to Bryce. The cabin was cozy and delightfully warm. The wood stove is super effective and provides nice ambience. We were spoiled as we visited in the off season; we had everything to ourselves. Since they had very few guests, they closed the restaurant early one night when we were hoping to have dinner with them. They immediately and generously comped us a couple nights for the inconvenience. Thank you for having us and we look forward to coming back as soon as we can!
