About the property

The Mustang Mesa Cabin is truly one of our most luxurious accommodations, featuring a wrap around deck, oversized bathtub, dual head shower, TV, DVD, WIFI, picnic tables, fully furnished kitchen, dining room table, all linens, washer & dryer! Sleeps up to 10 people.

A one-of-a-kind vacation home, set all alone on Mustang Mesa with a 360 degree view in all directions as far as the eye can see, Colorado, New Mexico, Arizona and Utah! Absolutely amazing night sky viewing! Relax on the large, wrap-a-round deck in the sun, shade or under a million stars. The Mustang Mesa Cabin has a way of making you feel extremely secluded, while just two miles away lies the most popular lake in San Juan County - great for swimming, fishing, boating and water sports!

Inside, you'll find much more space than you anticipated - with stunning vaulted ceilings, 3 bedrooms, 1 1/2 baths, full kitchen, fireplace, very spacious living room and cozy sofas! (Main level only - upstairs and downstairs are not accessible).

Bedroom 1 has a King bed and an additional queen Futon, plus a sliding door access directly onto the deck, amazing views!

Bedroom 2 has a full bed.

Bedroom 3 has two queen beds

Bedrooms 1 & 3 can be joined by opening the double sliders between them. Pack-n-Play available upon request.

All linens (towels, sheets, blankets, pillows, etc.) are provided for you. The kitchen is also stocked with all the cooking and serving utensils - all you bring is the food and condiments!

WIFI, Satellite TV and DVD are provided at no additional cost - that is of course if you ever get bored enough to use them. Our guess is, you'll be far too busy exploring all the popular national and state parks and monuments in southeast Utah - that's right, the Mustang Mesa Cabin is located central among more than a dozen of them!

(Please note: the house is not pet friendly.)

Please Note: Throughout the summer months the owner periodically stays on the property in her private basement apartment. When the owner is present they are willing to answer any questions and help plan activities in the area.

We would like to go on and on, but the photos of the cabin are worth a thousand words! Please feel free to ask any questions you may have or use the availability calendar to check for availablility online when you're ready. We look forward to your stay!

Why Jerry Murdock chose Blanding

This cabin has a full kitchen and living room/dining room areas along with plush sleeping areas. We are centrally located among 12 National Parks and Monuments. This beautiful cabin is secluded, quiet and private, yet is accessible to the highway for easy visits to sites of your choice, or just relax on the covered patio and enjoy the scenery and quiet. The sunrises and sunsets here are spectacular, and the star gazing is out of this world. You are sure to enjoy the cabin and all of its western luxuries.

Thank you,

Jerry and Tina Murdock

Guestbook comments from the manager

I booked Mustang Mesa with Canyonlands Lodging because it was large enough to accommodate my family and it was in "dark sky country". The agent communicated very well with me as I looked for available dates and accommodations in driving distance to Utah's National Parks. The only thing it lacked was an outside barbecue which would have been nice.

beautiful stay near Canyon Lands and Bears Ears

  • 5 of 5

This is THE nicest VRBO place in which we have ever stayed! There are unbelievable views in all directions; the house is airy and the highest quality. The photos do not do it justice----unlike many places in which photos exaggerate the beauty. Linda is a gracious host. We will be coming back.

Great Place to Stay

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying at this beautiful cabin with 360 degree views of several mountain ranges! The home was very clean, comfortable and well cared for! The owner, who was very nice, visited us on our first day and let us know if there was any thing we needed we could call. The cabin is in a great central location to Arches Nat'l Park, Monument Valley, Moab, Canyonlands Nat'l Park, Natural Bridges Nat'l Monument and many other areas of interest. Would definitely stay here again!

Wonderful June Stay

  • 5 of 5

Our family of four loved our stay here. The house is secluded and beautiful, with amazing views. The house has everything you could need for a very comfortable, relaxing stay. During our stay we visited Canyonlands Natl Park, Moab, Arches Natl Park, Mesa Verde, 4 Corners, and Goose Neck State Park - all 1 to 1 1/2 hour drives. The house is really amazing - the pictures don't do the views justice!

Fantastic private location

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful house in an amazing location. Wrap around deck provides endless views in all directions. House is completely by itself for complete privacy. Nice bedrooms (three total -- with sliding wooden doors separating two), full kitchen, huge living room with high ceilings, two bathrooms, one of which is huge with full laundry, lots of windows. The house is also "off the grid" so energy consumption must be watched carefully, though we never had any problems. Part of the house (entire upstairs and basement) are not available as they are the owner's quarters, (though the owners will not be onsite). We did notice (and heard) their cats in the basement unit during our stay, which surprised us. Located near the town of Blanding with access to almost unlimited outdoor activities and sights to see. We will definitely want to return!
