Guestbook comments from the manager

copied from our Guest Book

What an amazing stay!

Loved the Kokopelli Kabyn and really enjoyed or stay. The bed is so comfy it was hard to get out and go. We did manage a 4x4 adventure in Moab though. Thank you so much for the home baked bread on our doorstep after a long day out. It was perfect with our sausages cooked in the grill. :-) From the UK

Beautiful cabin!

  • 5 of 5

We certainly enjoyed out stay at this beautiful cabin near Monticello. Our kids have only been thrilled with 2 places we have stayed, one on the beach in San Diego, and now this one. The spaciousness was wonderful, and the views of the mountain out the west were breathtaking. The beds and sofa beds were comfortable, and there were adequate quantities of hot water, and adequate heat. The kids especially loved the upper loft. We hope to return someday and stay at this cabin again!

Canyonlands Lodges, the Bunkhouse

  • 4 of 5

We loved the bunkhouse in Blanding, UT. Very peaceful, clean, and great experience. The locals were very friendly So much to see nearby.

We were only disappointed with 2 things:

one is that we did a search for Moab, UT where we wanted to stay since our focus was Arches National Park. We were dismayed to learn the Bunkhouse we reserved was almost 2 hours south. And two: the pet fee is steep, being more than double the norm. Perhaps they could consider a refundable pet deposit instead.

Would I recommend it? Yes, definitely

Owner's Response: We're so glad to hear that you had a wonderful stay! Blanding and Monticello truly are right in the heart of southeastern Utah and there is soooooo much to do near by! We state very clearly on our website that the Bunkhouse is located in Blanding and that the pet fee is $25 per pet/per night. We're sorry that a mistake was made when you booked online, but we don't know how to be more clear about the location of our cabins. We have cabins in Moab, La Sal, Monticello, and Blanding Utah - We have so much demand for properties south of Moab, because that's where all the popular state and national parks and monuments are. All in all, we're glad you enjoyed your stay and hope to have you back soon at Canyonlands Lodging! Thanks.

Perfect for Reunion

  • 5 of 5

I booked 2 cabins and the Blue Mountain Lodge with Josh from Canyonlands Lodging for a family reunion of 50 people. The pictures on the website were appealing and it was one of the few places that was able to accomodate our group for a reasonable price.

I was relieved to know that towels and sheets were included with the lodge so our group didn't have to worry about that. Also provided was cooking tools, utensils, and dining ware. When I first entered the lodge, I was shocked by the space on beauty of the property. The pictures on the website did not do it justice. It was rustic but very fine and elegant. It turned out to be the perfect spot for our reunion and I hope to return soon.

White Pine Cabin

  • 5 of 5

Lovely little cabin, just the right size for a family of 5. Wonderfully stocked kitchen and bath. You could come with a toothbrush and clothes and be ready to go (you'd of course need to stop at a grocery store, too!) Perfect location to see and do everything Southeast Utah has to offer (even some stuff in Colorado). Our girls loved the dogs (they talked about them all the way there), the wilderness right outside the door, and that they had there own loft area to retire to each night. We loved everything. Manager took such great care of us. Went out of his way to deliver b'day flowers and balloons that came for one of my girls while we were there. We will definitely be back (this was our 2nd trip in 2 years to Canyonland Lodgings). :)

White Pines Cabin is perfect!

  • 5 of 5

Why would anyone ever stay in a hotel or motel when places like this are available? Wonderful hosts! A warm, cozy, and well equipped cabin. Peace and quiet at it's best. Close to nature with daily visits by a family of deer and breathtakingly beautiful bluebirds. Cannot recommend this facility highly enough and would give it six stars if we could. Perfectly situated for visits to ancient ruins, Canyonlands, Arches, etc.

Thanks Jerry! We hope to see you folks again someday.

Great Place

  • 5 of 5

This place is actually a few miles south of Monticello. Well worth the drive! We stayed in the Ranch Cabin. What a nice little spot! Extremely clean and comfortable! My wife and I are very picky. She usually demands 5 star and no less! She lived this little cabin! So much nicer than chain hotels. Out in the wilderness, everything was quiet and relaxing. I would stay again in a heartbeat. The management is very nice and friendly as well. Easy access from the road, but a little ways off. Don't pass it by.
