About Keith and Gladene Donaldson

We are both educators, with roots in the west, who graduated from Utah State and Colorado State. We soon found ourselves with 5 children and time to travel in the summer. It didn't take long for us to discover that this area was one of our favorite places of recreation and rejuvenation. Time has passed, the children are all married and we now have 18 grandchildren, who have also learned to love Cedar City and all the surroundings.

So here we are, excited and able to provide plenty of room for you and your family to discover on your own, just how truly incredible this little corner of the world is! We love providing you the opportunity to appreciate the beautiful surroundings, while enjoying a vacation in Southern Utah. We have fallen in love with this area and we think you will as well.

Keith and Gladene Donaldson purchased this house in 2003

Why Keith and Gladene Donaldson chose Cedar City

We purchased this home because of its charm and close proximity to SUU, to allow two of our children and their friends to have housing while attending the University.

After they graduated, we rented it out to our son and his family for a few years.They later moved 2 1/2 hours away to Las Vegas, so it was then available to invite our friends and family to stay here. Since they all enjoyed our house so much when visiting the Cedar City area, they planted the idea in our heads to rent this comfortable home to others. The University, Shakespeare festival, Utah Summer Games, skiing in the winter and the National Parks, keep people coming back. We love the idea that we were within 1/2 to 2 hours of some of the most interesting and beautiful places in the world.

What makes this house unique

Our comfortable Cedar City home is 1 1/2 blocks to Southern Utah University campus which offers many sporting and cultural events, including Utah Summer Games and the Shakespeare Festival. Brian Head is a close 30 minutes away for invigorating winter sports and mountain bike trails. Year round golfing is available at the Cedar Ridge Golf course and the many golf courses to the south. Las Vegas is 2 1/2 hours to the south and Salt Lake City is about 3 hours north, and about 6 hours from surfing in So. California. Then there are the tremendous National Parks (from Zion to Bryce to Capitol Reef to Canyonlands)... need we say more?

I have stayed at multiple rentals in Cedar & this one was my favorite. It is super clean, nicely furnished, and well set up. We really enjoyed our stay. It is decorated very nicely which makes it feel like a happy place to be. I had Excellent communication with the owners - they were super helpful & responded immediately when I had a question. You can tell this is a special place to them - its well taken care of & you will be also!

Great base for Zion and Bryce Canyon!

  • 5 of 5

If you carefully read the information about the house and download the Home Away app everything will be easy :)

We stayed at this home during a 4 day 3 night trip to Zion National park (1 hour drive) and Bryce Canyon National Park (1.5 hours drive)

We arrived at the house on Thanksgiving afternoon ready to cook dinner. The house had all of the necessary utensils, pots, pans, and anything else needed to cook a Thanksgiving meal for 6 people. We also used the propane grill to cook another evening.

The bedrooms were big, beds for comfy, and the bathroom with 2 sinks was good for 6 people.

This house is be great for a group of friends like we had but would also be a great option for families.

Cedar City has everything you could want on a trip such as multiple grocery or outdoors stores, restaurants, a bowling alley, and plenty of surrounding outdoor activities. Be aware that Uber and Lyft are severely limited.

Overall everything was great and the hosts were very accommodating! Would definitely stay again!

West Valley City

Five minutes from Shakespeare festival in lovely quiet neighborhood.

  • 4 of 5

The home is in a quiet neighborhood just a five minute drive from the Shakespeare festival.

It is a clean comfortable home with a spacious living room and restful relaxing back patio.

We enjoyed the patio in the mornings and evenings and it was always in the shade.

The owners were quick to answer any questions before our arrival and during our stay.

We would definitely stay again.

Decent little house in Cedar City

  • 3 of 5

We enjoyed our stay - the house was clean and comfortable for our family of five. The yard was very overgrown with tall weeds - if we had tried to use the fire pit, we would have started a brush fire, and my kids were disappointed not to get to have a fire and s'mores in the evening as we had planned. It's an older home and could be very charming with some remodeling (the lighting is particularly terrible in the kitchen and dining area), but it was well-stocked and had everything we needed. My biggest problem was that we didn't receive any info with the address and arrival instructions until midnight the night before we were supposed to arrive. I spent two sleepless nights trying to figure out alternative accommodations if we woke up the morning of our trip with no place to stay. I sent two emails and left the owners a voicemail message the day before our arrival trying to get the info we needed and a reassurance that they were planning on us, but didn't hear from them until hours before we were scheduled to leave home. I've rented many houses through VRBO in the past and never had such a stressful experience with lack of communication. The owner did call me back as we were driving to Cedar City and apologized that they had been off the grid. But if you know you're not going to be able to communicate, why not send the necessary arrival info earlier, which seems like a basic courtesy. I had booked well in advance and paid in full, and I don't like to be left with uncertainty about accommodations when I'm taking three kids on a road trip. I would give the house 4 stars but the experience gets 3 stars for poor communication.
