About Bonnie or Jim Pollock

We love the outdoors and have spent a lot of time in the High Sierra's and Lake Powell over the past 25 years. After living in Beijing China, Ghana Africa and Hong Kong it feels so good to be home. Seven years ago we decided to remodel and build out our property for our family of 31+ to enjoy. But you know young families with jobs don't get as much time away as they would like. Our home is so comfortable and amazing we decided to share it! We welcome you to be our special guest. Our red heart tells it all; we are loved because we are homey, roomie, well equipped, 10 acres of land to spread out on and give advice to help make your vacation spectacular !

Bonnie or Jim Pollock purchased this chalet in 1996

Why Bonnie or Jim Pollock chose Utah

It's really a destination place between Bryce Canyon & Zion National Parks with lodging and cabins to fit your personal needs. Some guests just love to relax and enjoy the many amenities we offer. Everyone comments on how centrally we are located to so many areas of interest between the two major national parks, Bryce Canyon and Zion. Cedar Breaks, Brian Head Ski Resort, Duck Creek Village and Mammoth Caves are just 12-20 miles up Hwy 14 towards Cedar City.

What makes this chalet unique

We are at the top of the list when it comes to outdoor and indoor activities for all ages!! Fire wood for the fire pit and wood is free!! A HOSPITALITY SITE is available through HomeAway once you make your reservation. It gives you all the information you need about our facility and the surrounding area.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Great location and wonderful people. You can't do better than this if you want a good place to vacation. Lots to do within driving distance too. But nothing better than sitting on the deck or around the fire pit in the evening......so peaceful.

The property is beautiful! The house accommodated our family very well.

  • 5 of 5

Our children and grandchildren loved this house! The view from the deck is stunning! So many fun things to do. Zip line, fire pit, jacuzzi, etc. it was so close to so many places. We went to Bryce Canyon, Zion's, Duck Creek and Lake Powell. Jim and Bonnie were great hosts and only around when we needed them. Our family had a wonderful bonding time and incredible experiences together at this great home!!

The chalet was a beautiful home with lots of things to do for the whole family.

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a great time. The chalet was very comfortable with lots of activities for the whole family. The location was perfectly located between Zion and Bryce. The view was spectacular. What a great way to start each day...a cup of coffee on the deck watching the sunrise over the snow capped mountains.

Thank you very much Jim and Bonnie

Fall Break Reunion

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 20 (ten children and ten adults) had an exceptional time for four days in this facility. We brought our own food and utilized the "whole enchilada" package. We had two refrigerators and used the kitchen in the Shadow portion. The bedrooms and bathrooms were arranged perfectly for our family. The recreation room had multiple options for the children and teens. Of course, the zip line was the hit with all but the three youngest children who were too small.

We spent one day at Zions Canyon hiking and the next day at Bryce Canyon hiking. Saturday we stayed at the facility and relaxed, took a short drive to Cedar Breaks and Cedar City, played games and watched movies. It will be a trip we will talk about for years to come and the kids will always remember the zip line.

The hosts were very welcoming and eager to make our stay perfect. We would recommend this facility to anyone of any age.

Perfect Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We visited for a long weekend with a group of 6 adults and 9 kids and had a wonderful time! The house was fun and there was plenty of activities to keep everyone entertained, even when it rained for 2 of the days. We visited both Bryce and Zions and the house was a great location to get to both places. The zipline and clubhouse were an especially big hit. Really fun place to stay!

Owner's Response: Thank you Asiel and Jenny, Sure the weather turned sour on you but what a positive family you were! "What, they have gone to see Bryce again already," I said when Jim told me the Shadow was empty. You came to see and have fun and the 4 days sure went fast for all of us. Thanks for enjoying the new upgrades we completed just before you arrived! And please know you are sure welcome to return anytime. Bonnie
