Quiet Canyon, Starry Nights @ HappyOurs Ranch Bunkhouse Between Zion & Bryce

Bedrooms 2
Property type cabin
Minimum Stay 3 nights


About the property

Cabin, 2 Bedrooms + Loft, 2 Baths, (Sleeps up to 6)

For almost 50 years, “HappyOurs Ranch” located close to Bryce Canyon National Park, Zion National Park, Lake Powell, the Grand Canyon, Coral Pink Sand Dunes and many other attractions here in Southern Utah's Color Country, has been a family get-away and retreat as we have watched our children and grandchildren enjoy and explore this 50-acre ranch. A unique, secluded mountain canyon with colorful maples, towering pines, oaks, and streams, will be your private family/group headquarters as you explore the marvels of Southern Utah.

We remodeled our unique, quaint and cozy cowboy cabin in 2010 to accommodate our guests and feel that it offers the finest experience of western ranch-style living with modern conveniences. This cabin is fully furnished with a full kitchen, living area with leather furniture, HD flat screen TV/DirecTV, DVD , WiFi, library, laundry, two bathrooms, and a unique custom-built bunkroom with two queen bunks and two full bunks with memory foam mattresses. Upstairs features a loft and queen bedroom for additional family and friends. A baby’s pack-n-play is available as well.

Outdoor living is at its best with two covered porches (one porch has two single beds) and a covered patio with gas barbecue and patio furniture where you can enjoy the secluded, tranquil canyon that we have enjoyed for so many years and want to share with our guests.

Up beautiful Lydia’s Canyon, just one mile off scenic Heritage Highway 89 in Glendale, Utah. The peace and silence will amaze you. Enjoy the star-filled night sky, hike to an ancient bat cave, fish in private ponds, or just relax and BBQ on the patio. This is the ideal location to enjoy all the treasures that await you in Southern Utah.

About Dave and Karren Nemrow

Dave and Karren, your hosts, have owned this property for 25 years, and for 30 years before that, it belonged to Karren’s folks. We are retired, but are young at heart and have many children and grandchildren. Our youngest son Hal and his wife Mercy and family manage the property, living just up the road. We live in St. George, Utah, in the winter, where we also have children and grandchildren, but come home for the Spring, Summer and Fall to this beautiful ranch. We built a log home here in 1990, and after retiring a few years ago (Dave was a high school art teacher and Karren was the high school secretary), decided to remodel the bunkhouse to share with friends, family and guests.

Dave and Karren Nemrow purchased this cabin in 1990

Why Dave and Karren Nemrow chose Glendale

Grandad's old bunkhouse, up Lydia's Canyon one mile north of Glendale, Utah and a mile off Hwy 89 is secluded and quiet and has forever been the cherished spot and gathering place for family and friends. It's close to so many wonderful places to visit like Zion NP, Bryce NP, Grand Canyon NP, Lake Powell and many more!

What makes this cabin unique

'HappyOurs Ranch' in Lydias Canyon is the most beautiful, rustic, secluded, quiet, private canyon retreat from the fast paced hustle bustle of today's living. It's like turning back the pages of time to a tranquil valley that you will fall in love with. You will enjoy the convenience and close proximity to the best attractions in Southern Utah. Come be our guest!

Quiet Canyon, Starry Nights @ HappyOurs Ranch Bunkhouse Between Zion & Bryce
average rating of 5.0 based on 57 reviews

Great Place for a Family Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

Our family (4 adults and 1 teenager) had a fabulous stay at HappyOurs Bunkhouse and visit to the Zion-Bryce Canyons area. Mid-way between the Zion and Bryce, we were able to visit each on different days without long commutes. We expected to "rough it" in the Bunkhouse but were pleasantly surprised to find a well-furnished, comfortable house with plenty of space for indoor and outdoor activities. We would love to visit again!

The Bunkhouse is nestled on a rural road in Lydia's Canyon with ponds and pastures. Directions for getting to the Lydia's Canyon Road are great. However, a tip for finding the house after turning onto the road follows: HappyOurs Ranch is on the first left after you cross the cattle grate on Lydia Canyon Road.

Great Location and Great Place to Stay !!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great experience at this VRBO property. Enjoyed the cool mountain nights after spending the day in the canyons (Bryce and Zion). Very romantic and relaxing ... Great little mountain get-away for a couple or a family. Dave and Karen were great hosts and made us feel very welcome. The cabin was fully stocked with everything we needed (Kitchen and Bathrooms). I would recommend staying here and driving to locations to avoid the crowds at the canyons. Should also add probably one of the best locations for photography with all of the brilliant colors and geologic formations, wild flowers, historic locations and vast panoramas. Rock hounds will find plenty to explore in the shops and around the area. It was our first time to Southern Utah and it won't be our last . Will definitely book this location again. . We were there in the spring but think it would be great for summer and fall, especially. It's always nice to have a vacation go this smoothly, especially with the accommodations !!

Really Nice

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed The Bunkhouse and we'd recommend it. Our visit was for hiking at Zion & Bryce in October 2017. The Bunkhouse was closer to Zion (we went twice) than to Bryce (once), but easy to get to either one. And after the crowds in the parks, it was refreshing to get back where there were no crowds. The place had all the stuff we (me, my wife, our 23-year-old daughter) needed and we were all happy with it. Plenty of space for 3 (and we left a queen bedroom untouched). Good choice; I don't think you'll be disappointed.

Great place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our time at the Bunkhouse. We had 3 adults and 4 kids, and it was very comfortable. Everything we needed was there, and the hosts offered lots of advice about things to do in the area. Our children LOVED exploring the mountain out back and playing with Gus, the dog. The hosts graciously shared their outdoor toys with our kids, and they had a blast. The bunkhouse is centrally located to the many national parks in the area, and we visited many of them, but my kids were just as content to play around the ranch. The hosts were very friendly and gracious, and we would love to return for another visit!

Adorable cabin! We loved it!

  • 5 of 5

We did a cross country trip from Maryland to CA. We stopped and visited Zion & the Grand Canyon & the Happy Ours Bunk House was our perfect home away from home! It is very comfortable and cozy! We hiked a lot and it was so nice to come "home" to this perfect little bunk house. We all slept well, enjoyed making our own meals, & relaxing in the family room to watch movies. The Happy Ours family is very welcoming, kind & accommodating. We would highly recommend this place to whoever is spending time in Zion, Grand Canyon and Bryce! Special thanks to Lonnie - he was the perfect host:)

Very clean peaceful cabin

  • 5 of 5

What a perfect place to stay. Centrally located by all the attractions.Very clean with all the amenities we needed. Karren and Dave were very gracious hosts.

It was so quiet on the property it was very relaxing. We hit the trails early and returned late so the solitude was perfect.

It was just a perfect vacation.
