About the property

Beautiful Ranch, Great Adventure! Sleeps up to 12

Nestled between Boulder Mountain and the wild country of Capitol Reef National park where Butch Cassiday and his gang rode and hid out, lies Elk Valley Ranch. Butch often visited his friend Earl, who sometimes rode with him, here in this stunning valley. The wild rides and escapades of Butch’s day are over, but adventure and excitement still remain in this amazing part of Utah. Our lodge will exceed your expectations! It is the perfect place to bring your large family and grandchildren. The attention to details are perfect. The large open main floor of is fabulous with an open beamed ceiling, antiques and comfortable furniture. The kitchen will feel like home with granite countertops and great space to prepare meals for your large group, as well as having enough seating for all at two large beautiful tables. There are great spaces for all of the adults to visit as well as kids. In the Great room is a pool table, flat screen TV/DVD, film and book libraries, game table and board games, as well as free WI FI. The spacious bathrooms are great with three sinks and in one and two in the other. The Cliff Overlook bedroom has a king size bed and the Gone Fishin' bedroom has two queens. Another queen bed is nestled in one corner of the Great Room. The loft is perfect for children who feel like they're having a sleepover.

Most meals are enjoyed on the large flower surrounded patio complete with BBQ, and fire pit.

About Sandy Dietlein

'Let's go to the Ranch' has become the constant cry from our family since 1970. We purchased this Ranch as a getaway from a busy life in California and a place for our kids to learn how to work hard and play hard. For over four decades the Ranch has become our family's favorite place to be. We know your family will love it too, there's a magic about the Ranch that will make you want to return.

Your hosts,

Allan and Sandy Dietlein

Why Sandy Dietlein chose Grover

Sandy was born in Utah and along with Allan felt that owning a piece of property there would be a benefit for the family That has proved true as our 60 plus family members have all become best friends from their stays at the ranch.

Fabulous place to relax and play!

  • 5 of 5

We adored our out-of-the-way barn home in Grover, Utah, beautifully made into a comfortable, perfectly appointed home for a family gathering. We were just two couples, but we loved all the space to hang out. We saw elk in the meadow and marmots in the pasture and bunnies under the wonderful sage shrubs that perfumed the air. Sandy had all kinds of information on local sights to see and we especially enjoyed discovering Capitol Reef National Park. We'd already been to Zion and Bryce so thought we wouldn't be impressed with this little-known park, but on the contrary! We were fascinated by the differences in the three national treasures and loved the many hiking and historical options.

Location is much more stunning than the pictures show!

  • 4 of 5

My wife and I stayed here recently with two other senior couples. Rustic (it is a barn) but creatively and beautifully redone as a vacation rental. Let me say first of all that this space is probably more suited to family groups than three or more couples traveling together. The open bed in the living area and the two beds in one bedroom might be a bit awkward for couples. We were close friends, so not a problem for us. Also, the spiral staircase to the two bedrooms is not ideal for older people, but we managed it just fine. That said, the location is just stunning, the pictures do not do it justice. This is a working ranch set between Boulder Mountain and the beautiful mesas and spires of Capitol Reef country. If you are like me (I grew up in the 50's wanting to be a cowboy), this is a VRBO that will be high on your come back list!

Best vacation rental ever!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our Butch Cassidy Country Vacation at Elk Valley Ranch! The furnishings were lovely, the place was clean, we had everything we needed, and Sandy even left us a nice treat. Ariel, the ranch manager, was extremely nice and very accommodating. The scenery was spectacular on the ranch. We had fun going on long walks on the vast property as well as watching the daily life on the ranch. I can't wait to go back!

Just wonderful. No need to say more.

  • 5 of 5

The barn and the surrounding area are beautiful. We loved our stay. This place is a quick trip to Torrey and Capitol Reef. Another reviewer said that the location was 6 miles on a dirt road...it’s not. Maybe 2 miles and nicely maintained.
