About the property

Cabin, 4 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 8-12)

Our home on the private Old Lazy Bar S Ranch is a unique and amazing place to stay on your vacation. Located one mile off of scenic Highway 89, there are no other houses or cabins in site. Easy access off of a paved road, and only 40 miles from either Zion or Bryce Canyon National Parks, this mountain home is the perfect home base! Our home is nestled against ponderosa pine covered hills (which you can hike on) with beautiful views of pink cliffs and a natural mountain lake.

Our 3,300 sq. foot home is spacious, clean, and beautiful. There are ground entries to both the upper and lower levels. Located on the upper level are the great room, kitchen and dining area, master bedroom with adjoining bathroom, and laundry room. The kitchen is fully equipped plus there is a second refridgerator in the laundry room. Windows in the great room and dining area offer AMAZING views of the surrounding mountains, fields and lake. Located on the lower level are two bedrooms, a bathroom, sitting area, and large family room complete with piano, cable TV, video games, exercise equipment ,and view.

Soak in the sun through the cathedral windows, or enjoy the shade while you swing on the glider of the covered deck. HIKE in the hills behind the cabin. Enjoy roasting a marshmallow or hotdog in the fire pit, and make sure you stay up late enough to see the billions of STARS in the night sky. Chances are high that you will see DEER grazing in the fields, EAGLES soaring high in the BRILLLIANT BLUE SKY, and wild DUCKS, geese, and other water fowl on the lake.

There is a king-sized bed in the master bedroom, a queen-sized bed in a second bedroom, a queen-sized bed in a third bedroom, and a full-sized bed and queen bed in the fourth bedroom. There are also two queen-size self-inflating air mattresses available with plenty of floor space for them in the family room. A portable crib and high chair are also available upon request. There is one full bathroom downstairs and one full bathroom upstairs.


This is a perfect base camp for seeing the national parks in Southern Utah as well as a great place for anyone just wanting to get away from it all. If you love the outdoors, PRIVACY, and the feel of peace, you will love our place!

About Tracy Camit

My husband and I started our family in Hawaii where he was born and raised. We've lived on the mainland for 24 years now. I am a homemaker, retired RN, and outdoor enthusiast. I love hiking, biking, exercising, and gardening. My husband is a consultant and enjoys tinkering on his '84 CJ7. We have four children and a black lab named Harley. I trained for my first century bike race on the roads around the ranch. I LOVE Zion National Park and continue to hike there. If you love the outdoors, you will love our place!

Tracy Camit purchased this cabin in 2008

Why Tracy Camit chose Alton

The Lazy Bar S Ranch is 0ver 100 years old. Before there was even a home here we came here for family reunions, horseback riding, and cattle branding. My parents built the cabin in 1997 and added on to it to make it big enough to live in in 2004. We purchased it from them in 2008 with plans to live there indeffinitely, but chose to move to Las Vegas in 2011 to be closer to family. Because the idea of selling our home didn't feel right, we decided to keep it and use it as a vacation rental so that we can still spend time at this amazing place.

What makes this cabin unique

You truly feel like you've left the world behind when you stay at our home on the old Lazy Bar S Ranch. Delicious homemade bread and cookies provided for all of our guests.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Wow! Everything was just so thoughtfully done. What you have done with this house is wonderful - you have made it a home to all who come to stay. From the scissors, tape, games, music, well stocked kitchen, shovel by campfire, the books--it's just so impressive. And CLEAN!! We have been fortunate to have traveled to many, many places and this place is #1. And the view! We notice and appreciate so many details and comforts that you have attended to. We can feel the love you have put here. And the bread and honey was delicious!

Thank you so much. We hope to come again!

One of the best vacations ever.

Beautiful property nestled in between Bryce Canyon and Duck Creek.

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely beautiful property. We were welcomed with a handwritten note, cinnamon bread and jam. The home was emaculate, so clean! The owners have obviously done incredible research about what people like because there was not one need that wasn't met. The kitchen was fully stocked with dishes, bakeware, pots, pans, bowls, crock pot, etc. Instead of the typical 8-10 glasses there were over 20 glasses; this was the same with the plates and bowls. Fun decorative pieces were also present- telescope, old sewing machine table, piano, old fashioned telephone. The beds had beautiful linens and a plethora of pillows in each room. The best place we've stayed in by far!

Beautiful vacation retreat

  • 5 of 5

Our family celebrated our son's high school and college graduation with a trip to several of the national parks of the Southwest. Lazy Bar S Ranch was certainly a highlight as it was the nicest VRBO we've ever rented. The setting was so serene and peaceful, and we loved gazing at the night skies after our long days of hiking and other outdoor activities. The house was immaculate and had every amenity we needed. The layout was also great for our family group of 8. We ate our breakfasts and dinners in the fully equipped kitchen and were so thankful we didn't have to spend extra money on restaurants, etc. and could focus the dollars on exploring the gorgeous landscapes that were within 50 minutes in very direction (Zion/Bryce). Thanks again, Tracy, for allowing us to use your beautiful home :)

Outstanding property and location

  • 5 of 5

As soon as we drove up to the property we knew we had made a fantastic decision. The property is situated in a tranquil setting with views over woodlands and lakes. We loved watching the humming birds and saw the mule deer in the garden. And seeing the stars at night was quite awesome. The property is so beautiful, well appointed and clean. We felt so welcome and the personal touch of the home made bread and jam left by the owner was very well received. I just wish we could have stayed longer. Perhaps next time ..
