Along with breathtaking views of the surrounding mountains, this scenic mountain home is situated to give you an unobstructed view of sunrise through 2 story tall picture windows in the main room. Step outside onto the oversized deck and listen to the silence. From your deck, you will often see deer and other wild life passing within a few feet of the house. Take in the scents of sage carried by the breezes of this southern Utah high desert location. When the sun goes down, gather in the hot tub for a view of the night sky few have ever seen.
A stay at Buffalo Ridge also gives you unlimited access to all of the facilities of the zion ponderosa ranch resort including their extensive pool and recreational facilities. Visit the Zion Ponderosa website.
Enjoy the upscale furnishings in a western motif that includes genuine log beds in every room, native american indian artifacts, high-end leather furniture, animal hides on the floor, and artwork supporting the theme name of the house, 'Buffalo Ridge'.
Preparing meals will be a family affair with your fully equipped kitchen featuring high-end stainless steel appliances, granite countertops, and 'great room' arrangement. Entertainment will be provided by a 50' high-definition plasma tv and blue-ray dvd player. View your daily pictures full screen (!) on this TV via its USB and memory card slots.
Your vacation home is located a short 600 yard walk from Zion Ponderosa's extensive pool facilities. And 1/2 mile from the boundary of Zion National Park. You can walk into the park from you home! A vacation at Buffalo Ridge is an experience you and your family will not soon forget. It is a vacation where you will truly be able to 'get away from it all'.
Always wanted a place for family and friends where outdoor activities abound. Love Utah and it's fabulous National Parks

At Buffalo Ridge, you can truly get away from it all. The peace and beauty of this location is without equal. From the house, you can walk into Zion. The Grand Canyon is a 2.5 hour drive, Bryce a 75 minute drive, many other, off the track, State Parks are also close.
Springdale has become VERY crowded as the popularity of Zion has increased. During the busy months, April thru October, the parking lot at the West/Springdale entrance becomes full. People are directed to park in town!!
The advantages of being on the East side are:
1. Avoiding the crowds in Springdale
2. Having easy access to drive to Springdale for dinner; a wonderful 30 minutes drive
through the park!
3. Having easy access to Kanab, another beautiful drive of 35 minutes in the opposite direction. Kanab has the best restaurant in the area.
4. Easy access to Bryce. It is only a 75 minute drive from the house.
5. Easy access to the off-trail hiking of the East/high desert side of the park where you can hike down any of the numerous washes. You can explore areas where few others go!!
Buffalo Ridge is a beautiful home. We have chosen furnishing and conveniences to please the most discriminating tastes.
You can really "get away from it all". My partner and I kept commenting on how quiet and peaceful our stay at Buffalo Ridge was. The way the house is situated on the property gives you total privacy; the windows were open all the time!
We stayed for a family Thanksgiving. There was plenty of seating with a large dining table that seats 8, a game table that seats 4 and 2 barstools. The kitchen was well equipped, the property was clean and cozy. The oven only has one rack, which was a challenge for our Thanksgiving dinner preparations. I informed the owner and he said he will get a second rack. The 3 bedrooms each have a beautiful, appointed bathroom. The beds are comfortable. Our stay was relaxing. We enjoyed the fireplace, the hot tub and roasting marshmallows over the fire. It was exciting to see deer everywhere, including the back yard, where 2 bucks were clashing antlers. We saw wild turkeys, mountain goats, buffalo and a golden eagle eating a deer carcass on the side of the road. There are games provided and 3 televisions, one in the family room, and one in 2 of the 3 bedrooms. There is a twin blow-up mattress, which we sprawled on in front of the fire to watch tv as a family. We did have one major concern upon arriving, the hot water was rancid smelling. I contacted the owner, who responded promptly and was very helpful. Apparently, the water had been sitting stagnant for a few weeks and the minerals in the water had settled in the hot water heaters. We turned on all the faucets, including the exterior spigots, opened the windows to ventilate the smell, and within a short time the problem was resolved. Overall, we had a delightful stay, eating, hiking and spending quality time in a cozy mountain getaway on Buffalo Ridge. Don't forget the marshmallows and roasting sticks.
We stayed at Buffalo Ridge the week of October 10, 2016. House and amenities were exactly as described. Everything was clean and well-maintained. Proximity to Zion National Park made it ideal for a week of hiking and exploring in the park while providing all the comforts of home in the evenings. John was very responsive to any questions we had leading up to our stay. I would definitely recommend this house to anyone interested in visiting Zion.
We had a wonderful stay and would definitely stay again!
My friends and I spent a week at John's gorgeous home. It was a perfect home base for us for day-hiking Zion and Bryce National Parks. The home was perfect! The amenities were more than we could have asked for, and John was an incredible resource. He always responded to our inquiries exceptionally fast. I would highly recommend staying here - we could not have asked for a better trip!
We stayed at Buffalo Ridge for 4 nights with 2 teens & 3 pre-teen girls. Wonderful, roomy house with absolutely everything we needed! Hot tub was wonderful after hiking - absolutely amazing Milky Way nights!! John gave great hiking & restaurant ideas, making our stay so enjoyable. We would highly recommend renting this home !
Owner and his management team were very responsive to our needs!
I would definitely stay here again and would recommend this property for family trips. Many nice amenities and activities for the entire group.
