Overview

About the property

3br, 3ba, Hot Tub, Sleeps 10

Along with breathtaking views of the surrounding mountains, this scenic mountain home is situated to give you an unobstructed view of sunrise through 2 story tall picture windows in the main room. Step outside onto the oversized deck and listen to the silence. From your deck, you will often see deer and other wild life passing within a few feet of the house. Take in the scents of sage carried by the breezes of this southern Utah high desert location. When the sun goes down, gather in the hot tub for a view of the night sky few have ever seen.

A stay at Buffalo Ridge also gives you unlimited access to all of the facilities of the zion ponderosa ranch resort including their extensive pool and recreational facilities. Visit the Zion Ponderosa website.

Enjoy the upscale furnishings in a western motif that includes genuine log beds in every room, native american indian artifacts, high-end leather furniture, animal hides on the floor, and artwork supporting the theme name of the house, 'Buffalo Ridge'.

Preparing meals will be a family affair with your fully equipped kitchen featuring high-end stainless steel appliances, granite countertops, and 'great room' arrangement. Entertainment will be provided by a 50' high-definition plasma tv and blue-ray dvd player. View your daily pictures full screen (!) on this TV via its USB and memory card slots.

Your vacation home is located a short 600 yard walk from Zion Ponderosa's extensive pool facilities. And 1/2 mile from the boundary of Zion National Park. You can walk into the park from you home! A vacation at Buffalo Ridge is an experience you and your family will not soon forget. It is a vacation where you will truly be able to 'get away from it all'.

About John Marsala

Always wanted a place for family and friends where outdoor activities abound. Love Utah and it's fabulous National Parks

John Marsala purchased this house in 2011

Why John Marsala chose Orderville

At Buffalo Ridge, you can truly get away from it all. The peace and beauty of this location is without equal. From the house, you can walk into Zion. The Grand Canyon is a 2.5 hour drive, Bryce a 75 minute drive, many other, off the track, State Parks are also close.

Springdale has become VERY crowded as the popularity of Zion has increased. During the busy months, April thru October, the parking lot at the West/Springdale entrance becomes full. People are directed to park in town!!

The advantages of being on the East side are:

1. Avoiding the crowds in Springdale

2. Having easy access to drive to Springdale for dinner; a wonderful 30 minutes drive

through the park!

3. Having easy access to Kanab, another beautiful drive of 35 minutes in the opposite direction. Kanab has the best restaurant in the area.

4. Easy access to Bryce. It is only a 75 minute drive from the house.

5. Easy access to the off-trail hiking of the East/high desert side of the park where you can hike down any of the numerous washes. You can explore areas where few others go!!

What makes this house unique

Buffalo Ridge is a beautiful home. We have chosen furnishing and conveniences to please the most discriminating tastes.

Guestbook comments from the owner

You can really "get away from it all". My partner and I kept commenting on how quiet and peaceful our stay at Buffalo Ridge was. The way the house is situated on the property gives you total privacy; the windows were open all the time!

Wonderful Experience

  • 5 of 5

When I reviewed the pictures online and booked the home, I was pleasantly surprised when I arrived that they exactly captured the place. The views from the home were picturesque and it was a short drive away from Zion National Park. The homeowner was very accommodating and provided detailed information about what to expect and highly recommended trails in the park. I would happily recommend the place to my family and friends. It is a trip that we will remember for years to come.

Great home base for park hopping

  • 5 of 5

This was a perfect home base for a week-long visit to southern Utah. The home was perfectly clean and very well stocked. The private hot tub was perfect for enjoying the stars and soothing tired hiking feet. The kitchen was well stocked with all the cooking tools, and the beds were very comfortable.

The east entrance to Zion is about a 20 minute drive from the house (10 of those minutes are down from the house to the main road). Bryce Canyon was an hour and a half. We also visited the Coral Pink Sand Dunes, the town and slot canyon hiking near Kanab, and we spent a lovely afternoon in St. George.

The owner, John, will share his guide to the area when you book the house. Take ALL of his recommendations on hikes, food, etc. Add to his list the Stone Hearth restaurant outside of Bryce. It was one of the best meals of the trip. And the Spotted Dog outside of Zion has an outstanding wine list. Skip Thunderbird in Mt. Carmel. Even the “ho-made” pies were lousy.

There is no recycling at the house, but we found that there were recycling bins in Zion park for aluminum, plastic bottles, and there were two places that had bins for glass. We just brought our recycling into the park with us each day. No paper recycling though — only saw that at the airport. Also, the park had spring water fountains at the visitors centers to refill water bottles, which tasted a lot better than the softened water at the house.

I highly recommend this house as a comfortable way to experience this beautiful land!

lovely house in a beautiful neighborhood right outside of the east gate to Zion National Park

  • 5 of 5

Totally enjoyed staying at Buffalo Ridge this past week with some friends from the southeast. Very quiet and private with easy access to Zion. Hiked into Zion about 10 minutes from the house. Very fun! Would definitely stay here again. The house was very comfortable and well appointed.

Overall, a nice house, and really well suited to two couples. The hot tub was very nice,!

  • 5 of 5

We visited this area right after Christmas - for 8 days. The property is quite remote (5 miles off the main road, on the “back” side of Zion park), but still fairly easy to get to on paved and maintained roads. The development itself has lots of trails (mostly ATV trails), but some hiking trails as well - and a relatively short hike is available that brings you to the main Zion canyon. The owner was very responsive to questions, and even added some new cookware ahead of time at our request. Overall - a very nice experience. The town of Springdale (gateway to Zion) is in massive road renovations (one lane - w flag men), which provided a major time issue when traveling through town. The park was also surprisingly crowded (the rangers were surprised with the visitation) - more than at the height of summer.
