Beautiful, Comfortable, Welcoming

  • 5 of 5

During our month-long road trip to hike canyons in the Southwest, The Cedars was the most quiet and comfortable lodging we stayed in. Its rooms are spacious, the decor pleasant (western theme, of course), and the location is ideal for exploring the many, many highlights of the Cedar Mesa area (don't miss the Edge of the Cedars Museum--small but world-class).

The king bed was unusually comfortable, the floor in the master bathroom was heated, and the big and beautifully-tiled shower easily accommodated two. We've stayed in dozens of VRBO and AirBnB locations in the last 10 years and The Cedars' kitchen has set a new bar for "best supplied." The convenient laundry room was also well-supplied and the machines handled big loads. We did not use the 2 bedrooms on the upper floor, but they looked comfortable and cozy and would make this house a great choice for a family. After long days of hiking, we especially enjoyed the loft living room with its big screen TV, many DVDs, and comfortable sofas. The house is surrounded by desert trees (juniper?) mostly limiting the view to the vast desert sky...but from the large kitchen-dining area that fills most of the first floor there are stunning views of the Abajo Mountains nearby.

The house was quite clean and tidy, communications with the management company and owners effortless, and our stay at The Cedars memorably pleasant--we'd come back again in a heartbeat. What higher recommendation can anyone give? Thanks for making this home available for others to enjoy.

Very nice base camp for our adventures!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed this place very much even though we were only here from about 11:00 pm to 6:00 am every night! We were at Arches, Canyonlands, Antelope Canyon, Mesa Verde all during the day and this place is right in the middle of all those parks, and we enjoyed the beautiful starry night when we got home. The house was well equipped with everything we needed, highly recommend!

Fantastic place!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed here for a short spring break touring southeastern Utah with our four kids and a set of grandparents. The cabin was roomy, giving us space to spread out. We sat around the fire pit roasting marshmallows two of the three nights we were there - the stars were beautiful! Even though this place is conveniently located right outside of Blanding, it was easily accessible yet it felt secluded as well. The kitchen was fully stocked with what we needed to prepare the food we brought. We loved the cottage and exploring the area. We were able to see Monument Valley, Four Corners, Hovenweep, Valley of the Gods, Moki Dugway, Muley Point, Monarch Cave, as well as several other hikes in the area. Thanks for opening your home to us!
