Overview

About the property

Mountain bikers, hikers, outdoor lovers, this is the house for you!

Situated on 1.3 acres of land on top of a mesa in Apple Valley, Utah (4400 feet above sea level), the Gooseberry Mesa lodge is a private, comfortable and relaxing getaway with a view that will keep you coming back. The main house has 3 bedrooms and sleeps 6 comfortably, while the detached studio apartment above the garage has a king size bed to accommodate 2 more.

The main house includes a kitchen with stainless steel appliances including refrigerator, electric stove and oven, dishwasher, microwave oven, coffee maker, toaster, a complete set of pots and pans and dishes. There is a counter, bar with stools so your guests may watch you cook while they sit and chat and a large dinner table that sits 6-8. Eat dinner with family and friends while enjoying the view of the mountains. After dinner sit in the living area while watching television, or unwind in front of the fireplace during a cold winter night, or get together with your family and friends for a board game night. Or if you prefer to barbeque outdoors on the porch and later gather around a 'campfire' for some story telling and toast marshmallows instead.

The laundry closet stores a full washer and dryer. All three rooms in the main house have sliding doors that lead out to the enclosed garden where you can relax and watch the kids play in the little playhouse.

About Nik

We love to spend most of our 'free' time hiking, exploring and mountain biking. We frequently escape to our 'Utah' house with our two kids for peace and quiet, and to enjoy outdoor activities this area has to offer. We would love to share this experience with you too.

Nik purchased this house in 2011

Why Nik chose Utah

We fell in love with the panoramic view of Zion NP and surrounding mountains during the day, and at night the sky is an endless blanket of stars.

What makes this house unique

Having lived in big cities all our lives, my husband and I love the peace and quiet this house offers and it's closeness to many National Parks.

Very nice place with great views and quiet relaxation.

  • 5 of 5

This is a nice house with very nice southwest decor and lots of amenities. Located in a small village on a mesa. Good access to Zion and to Bryce and the Grand Canyon for day trips. A bout a 20 minute drive to restaurants and groceries but we enjoyed breakfast and dinner on the patio. Great star gazing.

A fantastic peaceful location

  • 5 of 5

We had the best time ever at Gooseberry Lodge! Everything was fantastic and as described. If you manage to go during the "monsoon" season as we did, you get the benefit of seeing storm clouds sweep in through the canyons and over the mesas. Unforgettable!

Peaceful Beautiful Setting

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Gooseberry Mesa Lodge. It had the most spectacular views and everything we needed to enjoy our time with family visiting Zion Canyon, Bryce and North rim of Grand Canyon. I would recommend staying here -away from the crowds yet close enough for all your adventuring in this beautiful desert. Would 100% stay at this location again. The owner responded quickly to any questions and concerns! - The South Carolina Warrens

Perfect home for our Utah family vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We can't offer enough superlatives about Gooseberry Mesa Lodge. We traveled to southwest Utah from the east coast to experience Zion, Bryce and the Grand Canyon North Rim national parks with our young adult children. This house was the perfect accommodation for us. It is comfortably appointed and immaculately maintained. We all had space and privacy AND enjoyed together time on the patio (with views of Zion and Smithsonian butte), around the fire pit, and companionably prepping meals in the very thoroughly equipped kitchen. Zion is about a 30 minute drive from the house and the scenery along way is spectacular. Our trip to both the north rim and Bryce took between 2 - 2.5 hours. The driving is easy though - nice roads and minimal traffic. The nearest towns from the house are Hurricane and LaVerkin, both with a decent amount of shopping and dining options. We highly recommend Gooseberry Mesa Lodge and hope to return soon!

Location

Car: necessary

Gooseberry Mesa Lodge is a quiet, comfortable and relaxing getaway with panoramic views of Zion National Park, Gooseberry Mesa and the Smithsonian Butte. Far away from the crowd, you can watch wildlife from the porch, star gaze at night or build a fire and toast marshmallows with the kids.

This is a great location for family getaways and adventurers seeking a central base to explore the surrounding National Parks such as Zion, Bryce, North Rim of the Grand Canyon and Lake Powell, all within a day trip away. Many state parks and recreation areas are also close by. We are also within the immediate vicinity to world-class mountain biking trail systems such as Gooseberry Mesa, Little Creek Mesa and the JEM/Hurricane Rim Trails.

For the adventurous soul, head down the Smithsonian Butte Country Byway in your 4WD. Smithsonian Butte Back Country Byway is only 1.5 miles from the lodge and travels for 9 miles between Apple Valley on State Route 59 to Rockville on State Route 9. As the route winds down into the Valley of the Virgin River, you'll experience views of Zion Canyon, Canaan Mountain, the Vermillion Cliffs, and Zion National Park just four miles west. As you reach the highest points on the Byway, Zion's fiery landscaping, filled with buttes and temples, lays in panoramic glory at your feet.
