My husband and I wanted to do something different for Christmas and had friends that did, as well, only they could stay just 2 nights. So we booked a house near Canyonlands for 4 nights. The last 2 we were alone for Christmas Eve and Christmas nights. It was just perfect for us. We were able to take side trips to Hovenweep, Canyonlands and Needles, and also had time to read, play games and watch movies. Great amenities, wanted for nothing! Deer and turkeys walked right by the house!
