Would definitely recommend the lodging facility.
Depending on the type of traveler a family is, either seeking more restaurants then just one or simply looking for 1 onsite lodging restaurant itself the lodge is great spot. If a family is seeking or is in search of a variety of local flavored restaurants would strongly recommend staying Springdale. As Springdale does offer a local market for pick up/ grab and go groceries, a coffee market *which is probably closed due to fall season*, several very nice shops and a handful of restaurants as well. As for the ZMR, the facility sits atop a massive mound which overlooks a six thousand plus acres of protected preserved land for Bison. Due to staying here in the middle of September the sunsets that we saw were very beautiful. The very friendly staff helped as much as they can due to shortages and the servers/ employees that worked at the restaurant worked their tails off to serve guest their meals and drinks. So please kindly give them some patience, respect, and be kind all the time! The grounds of the lodge facility were all dirt roads so advise renting a car with 4x4 AWD, NOT any car with front wheel drive. Makes a big difference and it does matter!! There is one dirt path that leads from the cabins to the check in check out building which is easily accessible. Wearing sturdy enclose hiking type of boots helps greatly..not sandals or any open toes footwear. That will not work as most Americans seem to not pack the right way, when it comes to traveling and exploring the western states. Strongly, highly, and seriously encourage all hiking related type of shoes for walking outdoors. Many out of state visitors tend to walk in very little footwear..when it comes to being outside and walking on uneven grounds. Especially inside the N.P.’s where ledges are the norm. So in that category please don’t be an idiot, be a smart, wise, and responsible adult! As far as our room/ cabin it was very lovely and our family of 3 enjoyed staying here. Because the floor is all wood, may I suggest a small or good size area rug to walk on? As far as the shared bathroom there were not enough. For a ranch that has a host of cabins scattered, one would think they would invest in simple DIY hanging hooks for hanging towels etc inside the bathrooms in each cabin. As for the one on-site restaurant the breakfast was halfway decent. Because our family stayed for several nights we opted to have breakfast in our room to save a bit of money. The family is a very good place to stay. Any guest traveling with kids younger then 16 can be quite a challenge as their is limited outdoor activities to do on, and around the lodges area. Aside from card or board games, watching movies, socializing with other guest, campfires etc the other option is to visit the park itself.

Incredible magical place
This is our favourite hotel of our 2 week trip. We had a stunning lodge over looking their Bryson field, watching the sunset over the Zion mountains. It’s just outside the national park so a great location. Cabins are spacious and excellently done. We had a bath hot tub in ours! Amazing! Staff friendly and a really family vibe with mum and kid doing gardening, man waking his horses - it was just magical. Food was pricey but good - not so good if your vegan though (which you have got to expect). They light the fire each night and sell marshmallows- definitely recommend doing that. Just a magical place

I would highly recommend Zion Mountain Ranch. The location is quick and easy to Zion park. The staff was amazing, especially the front desk guy Cody. The restaurant had amazing food and good wine and beer. Cabins were beautiful. Had great views from our cabin and comfortable beds. Animals on the property were a bonus and the community fire pit. This is a must stay.

Exciting 1 hour ride.
We did not stay at the resort but went on the Viewside Ride Northside horseback ride with Zion Mountain Trail Rides. Molly, our wrangler, was lovely. The horses were great and the ride exciting due to the terrain and scenery. Would highly recommend this 1 hour ride.

Amazing lodge with awesome views.
We stayed at the Zion Mountain Ranch for 2 nights in a 2 bedroom lodge and we loved every minute of our stay!
The lodge was very spacious and well equipped, the bathrooms were amazing with great showers! The beds were very comfy!
We dined at the Cordwood restaurant on our first night - the food was delicious and we were very well looked after by Sarah! The carrot cake we had for dessert was out of this world! We loved the food so much we went back on our second night, it wasn’t as good as the first night but was still lovely!
When we checked out we had some issues on our route and Kelsey was very helpful in letting us use the hotels phone as we had no mobile reception!
All in all I would highly recommend the ZMR and would stay there again!
