Expectations were too high
I booked this as my “splurge” place to stay based on the website, pictures and reviews, but was disappointed from the start. After being tired from hiking Bryce Canyon and driving back to here, it took 2 extra trips back to the office and 3 different keys to finally unlock my room, which had a broken step on the porch. The restaurant was good. The fridge in the room was loud and caused issues sleeping and the bathroom tiles were loose. This may not a bad place for a family to visit I guess, but would not suggest for solo or couples. The experience just didn’t match the $300 price tag unfortunately.

We absolutely LOVED our stay here and will go again. Our cabin was cozy with a great porch where we could sit and enjoy morning views. Our bathtub wasn't draining well at first, but when we told the front desk they sent someone out immediately to fix it. We ate dinner one night at the restaurant and it was delicious. Our favorite part of staying at ZMR was the animals. The three Great Pyrenees dogs were the cutest!! They even came over and visited us at our cabin. The horses, ducks, and bison made it feel really unique and special. We highly recommend this place to anyone!!

Rest and Recreation
Excellent get away if you’re looking for some privacy, fresh air, peace and quiet. Located outside of Zion National Park, east entrance, 5 min away. Clean cabin, nice little fireplace and great views. Wild Buffalo roaming near by on the hillside. Main building has a good restaurant with outdoor fun for kids and horses, ducks and little chicks outside.
Staff were all very friendly and helpful.
They offer awesome horseback riding opportunities- we went twice - Haley was our wrangler on both rides - she was excellent. Ashleigh is the head of this great crew - she has a good vision for the ranch, was super nice and very helpful.
We rented a “Preserve Cabin Suite”- has small fridge and microwave - take your own small grill or camping stove if you want to cook a few of your own meals. Cabins have a tv and good WiFi, but if you want to actually watch tv or stream, bring your Apple TV or fire stick etc...
Mount Carmel Junction is only 10 min away and has two good restaurants, gas station and golf course. Town of Kanab is a nice short drive and has several good restaurants, grocery store, etc. We booked the cabin for 7 nights and then extended our stay one more night. Great experience overall and will return.

Zion Mountain Ranch disappointment
My wife and I have been coming to your Ranch for years & always enjoyed it. However, we are writing to express our disappointment with our last stay on 8/11/20 - 8/13/20. We booked a two-bedroom cabin with another couple. All of us are in our 70's. Where to start? First, NOT any of the staff at the Ranch was wearing a mask! Not at the restaurant, the front desk or when one of your employees had to come to our cabin to switch out a faulty coffee maker. NO ONE was practicing any pandemic protocols!!! This made our stay very uncomfortable and dangerous! Second, after we checked in and drove to our cabin, we were disappointed in the outside appearance of the property. The cabins looked almost abandoned. The structures need a coat of varnish and the weeds were waist high. We brought friends from Florida and felt embarrassed by the sight. Third, our faulty coffee maker which was replaced on the second day by a very poor substitute. Aside from the worn furniture and lack of kitchen utensils the interior was acceptable and clean. The experience was disappointing.

Zion National Park 2020
Zion Mountain Ranch was AMAZING!! The staff was very friendly, the spa like cabins were clean and had all the comforts of home. The ranch is surrounded with horses, bison and spectacular views. The staff connected us with a private shuttle which was a little more than the park shuttles, but saved us tons of time with cabin to park service. This is definitely the place to say when visiting Zion National Park. Also, Bryce National Park is only 60 miles away. Needless to say we will be repeat customers :) Thank you ZMR for an incredible 2020 trip!!
