About the property

SPECIALS FOR 2016! See description for details.

Duck Creek is a mountain paradise at an elevation of 8500 feet perfectly located between Cedar Breaks National Park, Brian's Head Ski Resort, Bryce National Park and Zions National Park.

Duck Creek Pines is the premier neighborhood within Duck Creek Village due to the tall pines and covenants ensuring that all mountain homes are actually true cabins. You won't see trailers or weird siding on homes detracting from the mountain ambiance.

But that isn't all. Smith and Wesson is the envy of all of Duck Creek Pines with lots four times larger than the rest of the others. Situated on 2.5 acres, Trailside Lodge is the perfect retreat. The quiet of the National Forest insulating the back of the property and stunning views of the cliffs in the distance from the front decks. There isn't a better location from which to launch your mountain getaway.

About John & Jan Thomson

We love the outdoors and spending time together as a family hiking, ATV riding, reading, traveling and playing games.

John & Jan Thomson purchased this cabin in 2014

Why John & Jan Thomson chose Duck Creek Village

Duck Creek has been our paradise for over eight years. We rented cabins for several years and finally purchased one in 2011. We continued to treasure our time in Duck Creek and when the opportunity presented itself to upgrade and purchase the cabin of our dreams in 2014 we jumped on it. We get together regularly with extended family and friends here and have made memories to last lifetimes.

What makes this cabin unique

Trailside Lodge offers the best of everything. Duck Creek Pines beauty. Smith and Wesson privacy. Close to so many national parks and fully equipped with everything you could want. The views from the deck and abundant recreation will make you never want to go inside and the comfort and beauty of the inside will make you never want to go home.

Awesome location, well appointed spacious cabin

  • 5 of 5

We took the whole family for a post holiday outing including our grandkids for their first experience in the snow. It was an absolute home run. The cabin is beautiful with an excellent kitchen and family room but the big hit, and surprise was the game room, some of the best memories of our trip. We're already planning our next stay.

Perfect White Christmas Getaway

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed at the Trailside Lodge over Christmas, and it was everything we had hoped it would be. We had my husband and I and our 2 kids, my brother and his wife and their 3 kids, and my other brother and his wife, and there was plenty of room for everyone. The lodge was so comfortable, everything was well thought out, you could tell that the owners don't just rent this, but put real thought into everything as if they were living there themselves. There was a pack n play and a highchair provided so we didn't have to bring our own, huge space saver in packing! A tremendous amount of games and movies to choose from, and a fully stocked kitchen for all your needs. And the area the lodge is situated in is perfect. We had a large amount of snow on the ground, it was a dream fulfilled for us to walk out the door and go sledding all day without ever getting in the car. The property is nicely secluded, even with being in a neighborhood with other cabins. Everything was beautiful, we would absolutely recommend Trailside Lodge, and hope to come back as well! Thank you for a wonderful stay. The owners were also very responsive and patient with all of our questions while we were there :)

Owner's Response: Emily, Thank you SO much for your kind and thoughtful review. We are thrilled you had a great Christmas there! With the recent huge snow storms we are scrambling trying to figure out how to get up there ourselves and do some sledding! Thanks again and we'd love to have you back anytime!

This was our third year at the Cabin in December and it was magical as always! It snowed for a full two days and was an absolute Winter Wonderland.

Great Cabin for a Family Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

Thanks so much JT & Jan for our time at your cabin this past weekend. This was our second time to Duck Creek (first time to your cabin), and this time we were able to enjoy exploring the area much better with our four wheelers (last time we came in the spring we arrived after a large snow storm).

The cabin was clean and very well equipped with everything we needed. The kitchen was very nice and stocked with everything. The bedrooms for our kids were just perfect - and great to have a TV for our girls to watch in their room. The roomy master bedroom is awesome - so nice to have a comfortable king size bed with a nice shower and jetted tub. The main living room area was also very comfortable and fun to just hang out in, watch a game on TV or play games together (thanks for a good variety of games and videos as well). The downstairs playroom is great too- it was nice to have a larger TV there as well. Overall a very nice cabin, loved the decor and appreciated how accommodating everything was.

Thanks again!!

If we could give it more stars, we would. WOW! What a great place!!!! While the pictures are very nice, they can't capture the full beauty of this home and its setting. Wonderful mountain/western decor, very private setting with great views. The beautiful kitchen had everything you would possibly need and more. We were also impressed with the master bedroom with its very comfortable king bed, soaking tub, beautiful shower and decorative lighting The game/recreation room was huge and comfortable with giant TV screen, and the main floor living area was gorgeous with a wonderful woodburning fireplace. We were pleased with the proximity to Bryce and Zion and definately plan on returning and bringing friends to enjoy this great place. We have rented many luxury homes on VRBO and HomeAway and this by far exceeded our expectations and would rank the top of all we have visited. Thank you JT and Jan. You were very responsive and we enjoyed working with you.
