About Ryan

I live in Las Vegas, NV with my wife Julie and our 4 kids.

I have been a medical sales rep. for 10 years.

Ryan purchased this cabin in 2007

Why Ryan chose Utah

My wife and I fell in love with Zion National park and our cabin area after my Uncle organized a family reunion in the area. We purchased a one acre parcel and built our cabin in 2007. We love making family memories in our cabin and the surrounding area.

You will love this cabin and the location!

  • 5 of 5

This wasn't our first vacation to Zion, but it is our favorite by far! We have our own cabin a few hours away, so we are a little particular about how comfortable and functional other cabins are. This exceeded our expectations! There is plenty of room, all the appliances are updated (nicer than the ones in our home!), never ending hot water (this makes it worth it alone) and beds are comfortable.

The location is perfect and next year, we won't "shop around" for a cabin - we will be staying here every year. We are already planning a trip to return! It has access to a community center (you are far enough away for privacy and close enough to be there in 5 min). It has two fun swimming pools, a basketball court, tennis court and activities. We enjoyed the zip line, horseback riding, ATV rides and rock climbing.

We were close to some of the most popular hikes in Zion and at the end of the day, we had plenty of room to relax vs being on top of each other in other cabins (we had 19 people). The ping pong table was a hit and we loved the fire pit.

We had 11 adults and 8 kids - it really is perfect for all ages. They have a high chair and pack n play. they also have plenty of linens. They have r/o water, so you don't have to pack a ton of water (noteworthy).

You will love it here!

Our stay was wonderful! We had twelve people and everyone was comfortable. I would highly recommend this cabin. When I'm back in Utah this is diffidently a place I would stay at again without hesitation.

A clean roomy cabin with everything we needed for all ages

  • 5 of 5

Our adult kids and 8 grandkids loved our stay. We had a great time touring Zion NP and just hanging out around the cabin. We threw in Razor scooters for the kids and they enjoyed riding in big driveway area. Great vacation home for a group our size (18).

Beautiful home in beautiful, quiet area.

  • 5 of 5

The home was fully equipped and beautifully decorated with all the amenities. All the instructions, details, directions, frequently asked questions that were listed for the house were very useful and accurate. The owner answered all my questions promptly and efficiently. We were a party of 9 adults, so we had plenty of extra room and space. Kitchen was equipped to feed a party of 20 or more. The one minor thing we missed was some paper towels for the kitchen. The roll was already small when we arrived and there were no replacement rolls available. We enjoyed our stay very much and wished we had more time to spend there.

We had an amazing time at the mountain star cabin!

  • 5 of 5

This cabin was just amazing! Perfect location for our Zion, Kolob, Bryce, and Antelope Canyon trips. We had 18 people in our group and the cabin fit perfectly. Did not feel crowded and the 4.5 bathroom sure helped with getting ready. Would love to stay here again. Everything was fully stocked. Just need to bring your own food. We stayed 5 nights and we filled up both refrigerators. I brought my big soup pot just in case but didn't even need to use it since there was already one there. This was one of our best trips! Our friend stayed next door at Zion Ponderosa. After checking out their place, I was glad I reserved mountain star cabin. Thank you for sharing your home!

Wonderful & comfortable home for a large group

  • 5 of 5

This was a lovely , well equipped home shared by 15 of us which included three generations of adults , of which four were married couples, and the other seven were millennials (cousins, boyfriends/girlfriends). Plenty of beds and bed options in this five bedroom home. There was seating for all between one table and one island , plenty of crockery and cookware , two refrigerators to hold food for the week and a heck of a well equipped kitchen. Ryan, the owner, was a dream to work with , answering many questions, and even responding to my query of whether there were two fridges with a "hope to get a second one up there in the next two weeks" which he did, in the couple of weeks before our Thanksgiving stay there. The location out past the east entrance of the park was not as convenient to Springdale as some rentals might be so if you are hoping to eat out lots of meals, staying here means a 30 minute drive to town or heading there directly after a day of hiking. We routinely hiked until late afternoon, hit Springdale for a latte and crepes , and then headed home to our cozy cabin where we cooked a simple meal. We didn't venture to a nearby restaurant we were told about so can't comment on services nearby. I thought it was a really good value for such a nice five bedroom home accommodating so many people in this particular area of Utah. The drive into the park to take the signature hikes on the floor of Zion National Park is spectacular and we never tired of it. The house puts you in a good location to drive to Bryce National Park for a day. Given our trip was in November, the days were short, but fabulous temperatures for hiking in the desert sunshine . It was our second Thanksgiving in Zion.

I highly recommend this house and this owner!

Nearest Airport
180 Miles
Las Vegas (LAS)
Nearest Golf
15 Miles
Mount Carmel Junction (Hwy 9 & Hwy 89)
Car: necessary

Our Cabin is situated in an area called Zion Ridge that backs up to Zion National Park.

Although we are tucked away amongst the Ponderosa Pines outside Zion, we are very close to several other great areas of interest:

Brian Head Ski Resort (73 miles), Bryce Canyon N.P. (75 miles), Cedar Breaks N.P. (62 miles), Lake Powel (91 miles), Navajo Lake (51 miles), & Coral Pink Sand Dunes State Park (25 miles).

If you are not interested in taking a short drive to these areas, you can take a short walk (300 yards) to an adjacent small mountain resort with many activities such as: ATV riding, horseback riding, shooting, paintballing, archery, zip line, a rock climbing wall, basketball/tennis court, horseshoes, and many other activities for adults and kids alike.

Don't be fooled, these activities are great fun, but it is sometimes more fun to relax and enjoy the scenery.

Other Activities: Rock Wall, ATV's, Zip Line, Paint Ball, Billiards, Ping Pong

Golf: There is a Par-3 golf course about 12 miles from the cabin at Mt Carmel junction.

Ski: Brian Head Ski Resort is the main resort most Las Vegans travel to for great Utah Snow Skiing.
