Minutes Away From Flaming Gorge!
About Nathan Pierce
I grew up bucking hay and shoveling, well, you know. Now I live in the big city with my family, but I just can't shake the mountains.
Nathan Pierce purchased this House in 2016
Why Nathan Pierce chose Manila
I built this home away from home (2016), near year-round recreational activities. The air is clear, the stars are out, and the fish and game are waiting for the grill.
What makes this House unique
Comfortable beds, plenty of room for the whole family, extra large garage space for boats and toys, covered patio for barbecue. Everything else you need for year-round enjoyment is just outside.

A wonderful place to spend time with the family!!
This was a great house for us. We were a small group of six having a short weekend long family reunion with grown kids coming from a few hours away.
Communication with the owner was great. Check in was really easy and it didn't matter what time we arrived which made for a less stressful travel day.The house was super easy to find and everything was there as expected and more.
The kitchen was perfect for us. We ate all of our meals in with lots of prep work and cooking. We found everything we needed there; even a BBQ. There were lots of plates, cups and serving bowls so I wasn't constantly washing things over to use them again.
We all slept well in our bedrooms. The master suite downstairs was great. Tucked away, around the corner from the family room, made for quieter nights if the kids stayed up to visit.
Coming and going was easier with extra keys and garage door openers. Usually there is the fear of getting locked out but this place has a great system.
Laundry facilities were a bonus for those wet suits and towels from the boat.
The neighbor came over and introduced himself and gave us some ideas of things to do.
The internet worked great and the boys were able to log into the tv to watch the WSU Cougars play on Friday night.
We were a short drive away from the Marina for boat rentals and not far from the dam for the tour and hiking along the river.
We would stay here again any time.
Thank you for the wonderful stay.
Clean and comfortable
Perfect place to stay!
Enjoyed our Stay despite some needed TLC
We had a very nice time at this home and would rent again. I agree with most of the other comments. I want to provide an update to the previous comments since we were just at the property: The bedspreads have been changed from what is shown in the pictures and are very nice. There is still a bubble in the kitchen floor in front of the fridge in the main traffic area that I tripped over every time I entered the kitchen. The ice maker and filter in the fridge still do not work. Several doors and closets stick and are hard to open and close. The bedrooms face a busy street and if you are not a sound sleeper, the road gets active around 5:00 am, especially because you have to open your windows when it is hot. There are no luggage racks or dressers in the bedrooms or hair dryers in the bathrooms. The queen size bed sinks to the middle (owner needs to check and see if something is wrong with the box springs or the bed frame) so the couple that was to sleep in it ended up sleeping in the bottom bunks of the bunk beds. All the other beds were comfortable. The yard is all gravel and weeds so we didn’t feel like sitting out on the picnic table on the patio that faced the busy street. No privacy in the yard. The kitchen was well stocked but I couldn’t find trivets or dishtowels to put hot food on the table so we had to serve from the stove. Looks like several guests just put the hot items directly on the wood table as the finish was lifting. Sad that guests were so rude. Kitchen only had one cutting knife. It was a filet knife and was very sharp. All in all, we had a great time. Compared to other VRBO’s we have rented in other areas, we were able to get lakefront properties with a dock for the same price. The house was very clean and the oversized garage was very nice.
Amazing home near Utah end of the Gorge
This home was the perfect home away from home. The pictures on the website don't give this home justice the home is even nicer than you would expect ;) super clean home- adorable, family friendly! I read in other post about a bubble in the kitchen flooring and yea its there, but it didnt hinder our stay any. There are 2 airconditioning units and I would agree that central air would be nice, but I ,nor any of my guests felt uncomfortable- open up a few windows and allow the units to do there job and we were in decent tempetures for mid July. Kitchen fully equipped-bathrooms had the necessities needed and the beds in the bedrooms soooooo comfortable even the kids on the bunk beds had no complaints! For future guests: 15 min away you will find Lucerne Marina nice if you have a boat with you what I truly enjoyed is that right before the Marina look for a sign for " Swim Beach" this by far was a nice gem - Great swimming and beach area fishing. Not far from home you have 2 gas stations and a small market in case you forgot some essentials and everyone in the town are absolute sweethearts. You pretty much are on the Gorge because it is huge - from town you can turn and go towards the Gorge areas, plan on some travel time, picturesque all along the way and you have many areas of opportunities to stop and fish or chill on beaches. To some it all up- Fantastic stay at home that was immaculate, great communication with property manager-The home is nicer than expected and location was exactly as stated! We look forward in the future to staying and working with Nathan again!
This house worked well for our family, the house was well equipped and furnished nicely. The only thing I would change would be to have central air. It got hot upstair in July for sure.
House is nice and close to store and lake!
Great house with a view of the valley
We enjoyed our stay in this home. The house is clean, nearly new with adequate space, a covered patio and large garage for gathering space. There was apparently some water damage in the floor of the kitchen and the ice maker and water dispenser in the refrigerator didn't work, but I'm sure it's easily fixable.
