About Vickie Moyle

Owners, Hank & Vickie, quit the pollution of the big city twenty years ago and moved their family to the Sunset Canyon Ranch...and have never looked back. We wake up in Zions every day! Need we say more!

Vickie Moyle purchased this house in 1992

Why Vickie Moyle chose Utah

We fell in love with Zion National Park when we had a vacation home in nearby St. George, Utah thirty years ago. We always dreamed of owning a ranch and then one day, after five years of searching, the most enchanting place in the world presented itself - an old famous ranch bordering Zion National Park. The ranch had been used as a location for several movies through the years and we fell in love.

What makes this house unique

When you drive into the gates of The Sunset Canyon Ranch you are enthralled by the stunning view of Kolob and Cougar Mountain. Down a long steep drive into the canyon, your heart melts as you view the green pastures, surrounded by white fences. A lovely creek runs through the entire property and cottonwood trees line the banks. Several ponds are claimed as home by ducks and a variety of fish. This is a veritable jewel oasis in the desert. But the best thing of all...and the story behind the name...is as the sun settles for the day our canyon comes aglow with stunning orange colors. The peace one feels in our magical kingdom is second only to the majesty one feels in Zion National Park.

Convenient but peaceful location and beautifully appointed home

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the Log House on Sunset Canyon Ranch for 8 days with another couple. The home was well appointed, beautifully decorated and well-kept. The layout was perfect for sharing as each bedroom had a sitting area and there was as much privacy as desired. We were easily able to drive to Zion National Park in 30 minutes or to St. George in a similar time. The ranch also has many amenities including a pool. The kitchen was well supplied with appliances and many spices and condiments. This was a very nice way to spend a week in peace and quiet or to use as a gateway to Zion. It was nice to have a place to retreat to after a day in the park.

This hidden gem was glorious!

  • 5 of 5

We couldn’t believe what we booked coming into Vicki’s property. The views absolutely rival Zion National Park. We are tucked in a valley and got to explore the immense property on the days we didn’t want to get in the car. We fished, played on the paddle boat and ping pong, hiked, chased turkeys, explored in the streams, read on the porch while listened to the leaves and waterfall. It has been a wonderful stay and we are sad to leave.

Thank you, Vicki, for sharing your home with us and stocking the kitchen and house with everything anyone could think of. His house did not feel like a rental at all. You have been so responsive and welcome. We hope to be back here again soon!

Loved it-four old friends could not have landed in a more perfect, wonderful place!

  • 5 of 5

Vickie provided a place that had everything we needed. The house and property exceeded what we all imagined. The beauty of Zion Park was a short distance away; however, the intangible part of Zion-the sacredness-was felt on the ranch. The beautiful covered porch looking out at the rock ridges and rushing stream was our favorite place to relax. We watched and listened to the 10 or so hummingbirds that were frequent visitors. At night sitting on the patio, we star gazed until our comfy beds called. The ranch was a perfect place to prepare for the day and come home to after a day of hiking, and it was a wonderful place to explore and enjoy on its own. I will remember the kindness of the owners, the smell of cedar and juniper, the sounds and sights of the birds and water, and most of all-the underlying peaceful silence of this very special place. In Gratitude, Susan

Top of the line!

  • 5 of 5

My siblings and I spent 5 nights here and the entire experience was excellent! Super quiet, private location so no worries about anyone above, below, or next to you. Huge well stocked kitchen, awesome master suite, so much extra room! Vickie had some great tips for hiking in places that weren't crowded, and at the end of the day when we were all exhausted from walking, the pool helped to stretch out our sore muscles. I would highly recommend staying here!

Best HomeAway stay!

  • 5 of 5

Vickie's property was the perfect fit for our family National Park vacation! Absolutely beautiful location! The house had all the comforts of home. After a long day of hiking, the back yard small creek waterfall and patio was so relaxing to come back to. Our kids had so much fun fishing, swimming, looking for frogs and lizards and exploring the ranch. So much to do, so little time to get it done. Oh and the beautiful night sky and stars! Stargazing was perfect! This was the best HomeAway stay ever!!

Thank you Vickie and family for opening your ranch to us. We will definitely come back!

Nestled in a deep canyon beneath the red rock and volcanic mesas of Zion National Park, you’ll find the perfect, very exclusive, hideaway for your vacation rental. Green pastures, a gurgling stream, ponds and ancient trees create a stark pastoral contrast to the raw, wind-sculpted red mountains of Zion. This 750 acre working ranch is bordered by Zion National Park and BLM land and is centrally located for your day visits to Zion, Bryce, Cedar Breaks, the north rim of the Grand Canyon, Lake Powell and Las Vegas.
