The accommodations were inexcusable!! We have stayed here many times over the years but the condition of our cabin was in disrepair. The microwave did not work, The sliding door in kitchen was broken, The curtains were missing on the two doors leading to the porch. The porch railing was broken along with the swing and table. The sink in master bathroom was clogged. The stair railing to the upstairs was wobbly. For the price of that cabin, there is no excuse for its condition!!!!
We stayed in a house that overlooked East Zion. The house was great with lots of amenities and the service was 5*. Enjoyed the views from the patio as we grilled out in the crisp evening air. Location is very close to East Zion entrance and very close proximity to East Zion Sports. Too many things to do on the east side... Also, nice dinner restaurant as part of the complex. Family very much enjoyed this stay.
I was happy with our cabin though it was rustic until DH told me the price. It is private and quiet in the meadow cabins but $300+ is a little high. We ate dinner (bison burgers and a very good beet and kale salad) and breakfast (really good pancakes) because we were tired at night and wanted to get to Bryce Canyon early in the morning. The food was also high priced but very good. The location is good for both Zion (right there) and Bryce (an hour or so away). It would be relaxing after a hot day of hiking in either park with the option of eating there or bringing something in to eat in your cabin. I do recommend this place but be aware of the cost.
We stayed at the ranch Jun 2nd - 5th. We came through late and missed the tunnel being open since it closed at 10pm for construction during the week. We called and Dillion was super helpful with giving round about directions. When we arrived we were pleasantly surprised at how nice the cabin we had was. We stayed in #124. It was private with trees around it and had a nice relaxing porch. The inside was new and beautiful. The bathroom had a large tile shower with 2 shower heads. The tub was was a basin tub with jets. The bed was super comfy. We had all the amenities we needed. We hiked Zion the first day and had dinner at the restaurant that evening. The food was really good. (I don't eat red meat so they modified the Bisen Boulanese Pasta for me and made it with all veges instead.) In the evening, they brought the young Bisen out for petting. There was also a small pony, hens, friendly dogs etc. We loved hanging with the animals. We went in the office/gift shop to thank Dillion for being so helpful. He was super friendly and engaged conversation with us. They had a group fire and Tim was super friendly and gave us the history of the ranch when we asked. Other guests gathered and we had a really nice group chat. They let us brand blocks of wood for a souvenir. Super cute and fun. We felt like family there. We enjoyed 3 more days there. Lady Peaches, the sweet dog, showed up at our cabin one evening and "walked" us to the common area. We saw the heard of Bisen by the fence. Note: the ranch is on the East end of Zion and only 3 miles to the park entrance. It is WAY quieter and peaceful compared to the Springdale entrance. We loved that about it. If you are goit to hike Angels Landing or the Narrows, those hikes are further down the parkway. However, the ride is absolutely gorgeous and it only takes 20 minutes to get to it. (It looks like it takes that long to get through the entrance on the Springdale side due to the lines) TIP: Of you go the parking area at the Visitor Center it fills up by 8am. However, right after that there is a campground. Drive as if you are going to it, but turn left to the overflow parking. Worked perfect for us. It's almost hidden so unless you know about it, you could miss it. We would definitely go to Zion again and stay at the ranch again. Another note: this ranch is convenient to also do Bryce Canyon. It is only 1 hour 15 minutes from this end of the park/the ranch.…
If you can't get into the Zion Lodge itself, then stay here. A set of log cabins, an excellent restaurant (the Lodge can't claim that!). 17 miles from the park, on the most spectacular road. And lovely big dog, who will demand ear scratches from you.
