Overview

About the property

House, 6 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 3 Baths, (Sleeps 15-26)

This is It!! The most awesome place you'll find in the Cedar City area, located just 15 minutes west of town.

Our Mountain Paradise is especially quiet, quaint and cozy, as well as, a place you can make a little extra noise if you want. Tucked away in the foothills on 3-acres of fun, you can head out for a hike or stay put for days enjoying miles of mountain views from the comfort of the couches or while laying in the hammock. How about a short trip up to Brian Head Resort for a fun day of skiing or head over to hike Beautiful Bryce and Zion National Parks just a short hour away. Upon arriving home, throw some wood in the outdoor fire pit, roast some marshmallows, or just kick back in the 8-person Jacuzzi. If that’s not enough, there are many other activities just minutes away.

Our 2-story, 4,300 sf. home is very warm and charming to the senses and ideal for a small family or large groups. This 6br/3ba home includes 2 master bedrooms, 2 living areas, a game room w/pool table and air hockey. The 3-acres of property offers a perfect setting for weddings, reunions, church retreats, and just about any kind of gathering you desire. You'll find plenty of parking for all kinds of vehicles and an RV hook-up, as well. Roads are user friendly to all 2- and 4-wheel drives.

We look forward to seeing you all in the future. Come and enjoy all the warmth our place has to offer. We know you'll love it and want to come back again, like so many others do.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We did have a wonderful time. I have to tell you we've used VRBO many times and we were especially pleased with our stay at your home. Your kitchen was very well stocked so the cooks in the family had an easy time. (The only item we didn't find was a mixer of some kind. But I guess we didnt' need those cookies anyway!! "Settled" for several batches of brownies and a dump cake!) The evenings in the hot tub (which was great - we've seen tubs we just didn't have the nerve to get in) were the perfect remedy to keep us trekking to more beautiful sites in Utah the next day. Especially fun was the evening we were in the hot tub and it was snowing! And, yes, the guys were enjoying a scotch and cigar. The two connecting rooms were great for the mom/dad and baby. The little one was able to stay pretty much on his schedule because he couldn't hear a peep from us downstairs.



We actually already have recommended your home to some friends from California - it might be just the place for their family sometime.



Thanks and God Bless

Wonderful Location, Delightful Property

  • 5 of 5

Perfect place for relaxing. It's a very secluded location (which we loved) so stock up before you arrive. The common areas are open and comfortable. The game room and outdoor spaces kept us entertained but the beautiful scenery is really the highlight of the property.

Spacious, well appointed, private and perfect for our family gathering.

  • 5 of 5

Two families met at this property to enjoy spring break together, having not seen each other in over a year. This property was perfect for our needs. There are many activities to choose from everything from sitting in a hot tub, to playing pool, or playing horseshoes. The home has many individual areas for gathering which allows kids to enjoy activities in one space while adults visit in another. We would definitely come back.

Fabulous Vacation Spot!

  • 5 of 5

We had our first family reunion with our four married children and six grandchildren (ages 1-6) and your home was a perfect fit for us. Two of the girls were in their last months of pregnancy so we planned on mostly just being at the house playing and enjoying each others company. Being out in the country in a private area that was very quiet was a big bonus. We loved that there was so much to do at the house that if was fun just being there and not feeling like we had to go out for entertainment. The game room was a favorite gathering spot. The living room was very spacious and had adequate furniture so we could all relax and visit together. The view out the large front window was great. We also enjoyed the hot tub, the playground set, the fire pit, the large screen TV for a movie night. We had hoped to use the shooting range, but ran out of time. There was plenty of sleeping space for all of us and each of the five couples had their own room.

We did take a couple of trips to do some hiking. One day some of the adults went to Zion's to hike Observation Point. It was a beautiful hike for the able bodied. Another day everyone, including the babies, hiked Spring Creek Canyon. Our family loves to hike and there are many places to go within an hour or so.

The only drawback was the lack of good wifi reception which was needed on a couple of occasions. But that wouldn't keep us from going back. We highly recommend this vacation home.

Some Nice Tempered with Some Not-So-Nice

  • 3 of 5

We spent the Thanksgiving week as a large family (20+) at this property. Although the property is out in the country a ways (15 minutes west of Cedar City, the closest community), it was spacious and met our size needs reasonably well for bedrooms, bathrooms, family/game rooms and amenities. We also felt good about the price we were able to negotiate with the owners, since it was "off-season" and we were going to be there up to a week, based on price.

The mixed review for the property is due to several things that we were less pleased with. These include, 1) Arriving at the property and finding a dishwasher full of moldy dishes that had obviously been there a very extended period of time and which required a LOT of time trying to reclean to a usable state; 2) Finding a door that led onto the rear deck and hot tub that would not properly close, despite our best efforts. It would blow open with the wind, until we finally put a heavy chair against it; 3) and noting that the hot tub lid had not been properly secured - it blew off during the storm the first night and the water was subsequently not in the best state for use.

However, the thing that upset us the most was discovering approximately 4 weeks after our stay that our deposit had not been returned, although we had heard nothing from the owners that would have led us to believe ANY of it was going to be withheld. When I contacted the owners, we received an "apology" about it not having been returned and were also told that part of it was going to be withheld. Despite our subsequent dialogue, we did not receive all of it back. We acknowledged breaking the glass around a standing lamp, but more than met all cleaning requirements for checkout. No compensation or acknowledgement was provided to us for the condition of the house when we arrived - despite our reporting it to the owners promptly.

The house met our needs well during out stay, but I have difficulty providing a recommendation, based on the issues identified above.

Owner's Response: We appreciate your review and have chosen to respond, as one of our two remedies. Our home has been listed on VRBO since January of 2009, and only on a few occasions did we have the unpleasant situation of retaining a portion of a renter’s deposit. Our policy is to return the deposit within 14 days of departure. On December 23, 2015, when I received the email from this group regarding refund, I sincerely responded and immediately refunded the deposit. Unfortunately, due to breakage, including, but not limited to, us having to replace a lamp stand table, a pool ball rack and a nine ball, we felt a $75 fee for repair and replacement was fair. Since 2009, our home has been rented over the Thanksgiving holiday for an average of a 5-night stay. All holidays fall into the high season in this part of the country. My husband and I are giving people and despite this week being rented annually, we offered and honored a large discount, including a free night based on this guest’s Retired Military status, which was information provided in the first email communication. Followed by several additional emails, all of which were requests from the guests, and that were responded to timely and all issues resolved prior to checking in. In response to the renter’s concerns about the condition of our home upon arrival, we addressed the dishes during our initial conversation that day, at which time we stated our disappointment for the inconvenience. Obviously left by the previous renter and an oversight by the cleaning crew, we suggested running the dishwasher once, or twice, with the soap and water provided for our guests. As to the spa and deck door, after a significant storm in the area the spa lid blew open and presumably caused debris to enter into the water. We supply a net and spa chemicals to keep the spa in usable condition for guests, in addition to changing the water monthly. Again, due to high winds the deck door blew open, and upon arriving to the property, the adjustment to the door took less than a minute to repair. Our neighbor is a handyman and was available to make any repairs that would have been reported during the stay. We have been honored to open our home to hundreds of groups over the years and delight in the numerous return guests, even some on an annual basis. We have always taken great care to go over and above the call to make every part of our home a special experience for all who enter as

We had so a great time at the "FUN FUN HOUSE"!

  • 5 of 5

We came and stayed here with our whole extended family for a wonderful extended weekend/family reunion. There were 5 couples (including Grandma & Grandpa) and 2 more adult children plus all 10 grandkids (and one dog)! With enough bedrooms and beds to sleep all of us comfortably (alright, some of the youngest kids were on the floor) we thoroughly enjoyed the property. There was so much to do that we never got bored. The one thing we wish was there was wifi access (or at least a decent cell signal) but part of the beauty of this property is that it is truly "away" and we were actually able to take a vacation from being so connected all of the time. Two of us did have to spend some time in town in Cedar City in order to go to a cafe or the library to use the internet for work, but otherwise, we were pretty content to stay on the property. We made use of the shooting range, the pool, the hot tub, the horseshoe pit, the trampoline and swing set, and of course of the awesome game room. This house really does have it all and we experienced all of it. The owners, Dawn & Bob, were so great to work with and were very accommodating to all of our varied questions and handled our payments and security deposit refund securely and very timely. All of the kids had such a great time here playing with their cousins and using all of the amenities that our two 3 year-olds nicknamed the property the "FUN FUN HOUSE" and ask constantly when we are going to be able to return. Unless you absolutely MUST have internet on-site (which, let's be honest, is arguable if you are supposed to be on VACATION!!) then this property has everything that you could possibly want, and more. Thanks Dawn & Bob for allowing us to use your house and for being so great - your "FUN FUN HOUSE" has reached mythical lore status in our family and every family trip forever forward will always be measured by the standard of the great time we had at your property!
