Idyllic Setting Adds Much to Lodge Experience
Boulder Mountain Lodge overlooks a lovely bird sanctuary pond teeming with wildlife and that idyllic setting adds greatly to the lodge experience. After lugging heavy road-trip suitcases up a flight of stairs -- there is no elevator -- we settled in to a queen room with pleasing décor and access to an open porch overlooking the pond. The room was stylishly decorated but a bit cramped with little space around its large and handsome furniture. The bathroom and vanity area actually seemed more spacious and boasted a great powerhouse shower (always a plus to us). Some of the lodge's signature wellness options did seem curtailed by the pandemic, but its proximity to the much-lauded Hell's Backbone Grill restaurant, adjacent to the parking lot, made this relaxing stay into a gourmet's dream.

Perfect place to relax...and to stargaze!
We stayed here as a part of a biking trip and it was so nice. The rooms were HUGE and the services were great. We spent time after dark in the field stargazing and it's a great dark spot. Our room had a nice porch and was just so very comfortable.

Comfortable, quiet lodge in a nice setting.
We enjoyed our two nights at the Boulder Mountain Lodge. We had King Bed Luxury Suite which was in a small building with two suites separate from the rest of the lodge. The suite was very large and comfortable …basically a one bedroom apartment as it had a small full kitchen and a very nice patio with table and chairs. Our only complaint about the room was that the mattress seemed old …it was very soft … and due for replacement. It was very quiet at night.
The restaurant on the grounds is open for dinner only. It is popular as it’s sort of the only game in town ….but they do try and give lodge guests some priority. They ask lodge guests to call about an hour before you want to eat and in our experience that worked fine. The food was very good. Breakfast options are limited to a small bakery/cafe next door. Quality is good but if there are any folks ahead of you it can be a long wait. If we’d known we would have brought some breakfast food as we had a kitchen.
This is a pretty isolated area but the landscape is stunning and we had a great hike with a local guide.

Boulder Mountain Lodge Utah
Boulder Mountain Lodge was the most wonderful experience We have had! My husband and I spent our 30th wedding anniversary here in July, it exceeded our expectations! The weather was perfect, the staff wonderful and helpful, the room very clean and perfect. We had a patio with chairs to enjoy the beautiful night sky and watch the stars. During the day we had our choice of kind or short hikes that ranged from easy to difficult, we chose a little of both. One day we hiked up to a gorgeous waterfall and swam!!! We took a scenic drive on hwy 12, took a short walk to a small slot canyon. This lodge is perfectly located to enjoy the most amazing sites no matter what your physical condition. I work in a hospital so I hear many people say “ I could never enjoy this or that because I couldn’t hike” I was so excited to see this place because the slot canyon is not one you need to hike to. There were petroglyphs that we drove to on hwy 12 and were able to pull off the road. I am telling everyone about this magical place. It’s wonderful! Thank you staff!!

A lovely get away
The lodge is located in a beautiful setting amidst a pond and a backdrop of the Grand Staircase Escalante National Monument. The staff was attentive to details and included a small bouquet of native flowers that I asked be placed in the room prior to our arrival for our 10th anniversary get away. The rooms are well kept and modest. Sitting on the adirondack chairs and enjoying the sounds of coots and frogs as the swifts and bats hunted about as the evening sun set is therapeutic. The wi-fi is what you would expect for an exceptionally remote location typically serviceable, but streaming may be inconsistent at times. Dinner at the adjacent Hell's Backbone Grill is worth the visit, too.
The staff was very sensitive to covid concerns and guidelines, which helps everyone, including those that cannot be vaccinated, feel as safe as possible.
