Quiet Canyon, Starry Nights @ HappyOurs Ranch Bunkhouse Between Zion & Bryce

Bedrooms 2
Property type cabin
Minimum Stay 5 nights


About the property

Cabin, 2 Bedrooms + Loft, 2 Baths, (Sleeps up to 6)

For almost 50 years, “HappyOurs Ranch” located close to Bryce Canyon National Park, Zion National Park, Lake Powell, the Grand Canyon, Coral Pink Sand Dunes and many other attractions here in Southern Utah's Color Country, has been a family get-away and retreat as we have watched our children and grandchildren enjoy and explore this 50-acre ranch. A unique, secluded mountain canyon with colorful maples, towering pines, oaks, and streams, will be your private family/group headquarters as you explore the marvels of Southern Utah.

We remodeled our unique, quaint and cozy cowboy cabin in 2010 to accommodate our guests and feel that it offers the finest experience of western ranch-style living with modern conveniences. This cabin is fully furnished with a full kitchen, living area with leather furniture, HD flat screen TV/DirecTV, DVD , WiFi, library, laundry, two bathrooms, and a unique custom-built bunkroom with two queen bunks and two full bunks with memory foam mattresses. Upstairs features a loft and queen bedroom for additional family and friends. A baby’s pack-n-play is available as well.

Outdoor living is at its best with two covered porches (one porch has two single beds) and a covered patio with gas barbecue and patio furniture where you can enjoy the secluded, tranquil canyon that we have enjoyed for so many years and want to share with our guests.

Up beautiful Lydia’s Canyon, just one mile off scenic Heritage Highway 89 in Glendale, Utah. The peace and silence will amaze you. Enjoy the star-filled night sky, hike to an ancient bat cave, fish in private ponds, or just relax and BBQ on the patio. This is the ideal location to enjoy all the treasures that await you in Southern Utah.

About Dave and Karren Nemrow

Dave and Karren, your hosts, have owned this property for 25 years, and for 30 years before that, it belonged to Karren’s folks. We are retired, but are young at heart and have many children and grandchildren. Our youngest son Hal and his wife Mercy and family manage the property, living just up the road. We live in St. George, Utah, in the winter, where we also have children and grandchildren, but come home for the Spring, Summer and Fall to this beautiful ranch. We built a log home here in 1990, and after retiring a few years ago (Dave was a high school art teacher and Karren was the high school secretary), decided to remodel the bunkhouse to share with friends, family and guests.

Dave and Karren Nemrow purchased this cabin in 1990

Why Dave and Karren Nemrow chose Glendale

Grandad's old bunkhouse, up Lydia's Canyon one mile north of Glendale, Utah and a mile off Hwy 89 is secluded and quiet and has forever been the cherished spot and gathering place for family and friends. It's close to so many wonderful places to visit like Zion NP, Bryce NP, Grand Canyon NP, Lake Powell and many more!

What makes this cabin unique

'HappyOurs Ranch' in Lydias Canyon is the most beautiful, rustic, secluded, quiet, private canyon retreat from the fast paced hustle bustle of today's living. It's like turning back the pages of time to a tranquil valley that you will fall in love with. You will enjoy the convenience and close proximity to the best attractions in Southern Utah. Come be our guest!

Great experience

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful cabin, super friendly hosts. We took full advantage of Zion and Bryce Canyon National Parks. The cabin was centrally locates between the two. So much fun. Accommodations were perfect. Detail items you wouldn’t even think about were provided. We would definitely come back and stay with DAVE and Karen again!

Great place!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time in the Bunkhouse. It was conviently located to both Zion and Bryce. The kitchen was well equipped. Two bathrooms and plenty of towels! Much appreciated with four kids! The porch was nice to sit on and relax. The nights cooled down and the stars were amazing. Karen and Dave were helpful and we wished we were able to chat on their porch! Thanks for sharing! Hope to come back again!

Perfect location for visiting Zion, Bryce and Red Canyon.

  • 5 of 5

Our family had the BEST vacation at Happy Ours. The bunkhouse had everything we needed, was comfortable and CLEAN. We loved watching the hummingbirds, bluejays and other colorful birds while sitting on the porch. We were lucky enough to be there 15 mins after a beautiful foal entered the world.....bonus. Dave and Karen are absolutely delightful and ready with tips and directions for the many sites in the area. I can't say enough how wonderful our week was.

We loved our stay at HappyOurs Ranch! The house was so clean and had everything we needed to make it our western home for the week. Karren and Dave were so wonderful, we loved hearing about the history of the area and all the inside info on the Parks and local spots was extremely helpful! Thank you so much for the hospitality, we will definitely be back!

Perfect getaway for relaxation and visiting Bryce and Zion!

  • 5 of 5

We could not have been more pleased with our stay! We are a family of four, with two kids 8 and 10. We wanted a central location to visit Bryce and Zion and still have a place to relax after exploring. This was the perfect place! We were about an hour from both parks, but it was a beautiful drive and did not bother us a bit. Karen and Dave were so helpful in giving us tips for our travel. They were amazing hosts! In the afternoons we enjoyed chatting with them after our adventures. They let our kids play with their grandchildren's toys and the ranch was just beautiful to walk around and visit the horses. The bunkhouse was perfect! Plenty of room for our family and kept beautifully! We also loved the porches. There is a spot to play cards in the afternoon or have dinner outside, and many hummingbirds to watch. Plus the stars at night are out of this world! Book this place, you will not be disappointed. If we return to this part of Utah, we will definitely visit again. Thank you Dave and Karen for your hospitality!

Quiet, starry starry nights

  • 5 of 5

From the moment we met Karren, Dave, and Oso, we knew this was a special place. The bunkhouse welcomes you right as you step up onto the porch. It is located between Zion and Bryce which makes it convenient to travel back and forth to each park daily. After long hikes, you return to a beautifully detailed cabin with all the comforts of home. The bunk beds are uniquely crafted and especially comfortable. We relaxed each day to butterflies, wrens nesting, hummingbirds, and all the birds visiting the bird feeder. It was a wonderful experience, a great place, with exceptional owners who shared a piece of their history. Many thanks!
