About the property

Ideal secluded cabin with 3 bedrooms/2 baths and grand mountain views

Lydia's Rustic Lodge at Happy Ours Ranch, located between Bryce and Zion National Parks, is the perfect retreat for a weekend get-away or a long, slow vacation. Lydia's Canyon, just north of Glendale, Utah on Color Country's Scenic Highway 89, is known for its colorful maples and towering pines, lush meadows, and clear creeks and ponds. The property includes horse stalls and pasture, as well as a unique canyon with rocky ledges and grand views, perfect for an afternoon hike.

The three-bedroom, two-bath lodge has a roomy living area with classic open beams and a 55" screen TV. The upstairs bedroom is good-sized and boasts a large built-in closet. It is near the full, upstairs bath stocked with comfortable towels and all the amenities. The basement stays cool in the summer and houses an open game area and two more bedrooms. Both have comfortable queen-sized beds. Bedroom #2 adjoins a bath with a shower, and bedroom #3 has an additional twin bed. There is twin-over double bunk bed and a queen-sized futon in the downstairs living area. The kitchen hosts an antique cook stove with full electric capability and is fully stocked, whether guests want to eat in or take food on the go. The large, covered, wrap-around porch complete with a new BBQ grill "makes" the log cabin and is perfect for a quiet evening or a cook out with a crowd. Come and enjoy a rustic feel with all the latest technology, including wifi and a smart TV.

About Hal and Mercy Stout

We are Hal and Mercy Stout. We met while attending college in nearby Cedar City and moved to Lydia's Canyon to build a home on family land in 2002. Hal spent his childhood summers in this canyon and it has proven to be the perfect place to raise our family. Lydia's Lodge is located a half mile up the canyon from our home. We were thrilled to acquire it along with 18 acres as an addition to Happy Ours Ranch. We are excited to share this amazing place with your family or group as headquarters while you explore the marvels of southern Utah.

In short, you'll never see it all in one trip! Make the lodge your headquarters and visit the sights of southern Utah.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thanks for a great vacation stay. We had everything we needed for a relaxing get-away from our busy lives. Accommodations were spotless and spacious. We would have stayed forever if real life didn't interfere. Multiple families were comfortable. Thanks again!

Very nice

  • 4 of 5

Great place, especially for a family. Nice size Log Cabin. The only thing we were not aware of was that the two bedrooms in the basement were in a below ground basement. We assumed it was on a slope with a walk out basement and windows.

Private, Clean, Large, Comfortable.. Highly Recommended.

  • 5 of 5

When looking for a place for our family to stay in southern Ut, I came across this cabin and was impressed with the reviews. I rely heavily on reviews, so I want to leave an honest one for others like myself. The cabin was just as described. It felt like coming to my Grandma's cabin or home for the weekend. Very homey, prepped perfectly for our stay. The cabin was very, very clean, and I am a picky person. There was everything needed for our stay. I cooked 9 full meals for 8 people in the kitchen and had everything I needed. We cooked on the grill every night. The beds were all clean and comfy. Plenty of space, it rained one morning and we watched videos and played on the air hockey table. We set up our volleyball/badminton net in the large yard area, my kids liked exploring the property, and playing night games while we roasted marshmallows on the fire pit. Plenty of dry firewood for that. Only complaint was a rather noisy generator or something on another property, but it could only be heard when you were outside and at that end of the yard, not in the rooms or anything. Easy to find. We went to Bryce Canyon one day, and to Red Hollow slot canyon another day. We've already been to Zion's, or we would have made a trip there as well. Beautiful canyon. Loved how private it was, would be even more beautiful in the summer when the trees are leafed out. Mercy obviously takes a lot of time and attention to prepping and cleaning the cabin. There was even a delicate/shoe bag to do laundry in. There was shampoo and toothpaste in case we forgot ours. Everyone showered every night and we had hot water. Everyone slept well. Was planning on 10 people but we only had 7, so there was ample space. We would have had plenty of space for 10-12 people on beds, and more space if you wanted to sleep on couches or the floor. Everyone enjoyed it. I would recommend it to my own mom, and that is saying something. :) Thanks so much for an great place to stay!

Great family spot

  • 5 of 5

We went to explore Zion National Park and Bryce National Park and this spot was a great in between. The house was nice and roomy for our party of 5 adults and 2 children. Also it was stocked with basic essentials (towels, bedsheets, dish soap, coffee pot, etc) which made cleaning up from hiking and cooking a good meal easy. Being out in the country made for quiet nights and having cozy beds made sleep easy! I would highly recommend this little cabin!

Wonderful vacation spot!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of four had a wonderful stay at Lydia's Lodge. The booking process was easy and communication with the owners was excellent. The cabin was easy to find. The vacation cabin was as advertised, and everything was clean and worked well. The location of the cabin between Bryce Canyon and Zion made visiting both parks a breeze. In addition, we visited Red Hollow slot canyon in nearby Orderville. The cabin itself was very roomy and had ample space. The kitchen was well equipped. The air hockey table downstairs was a big hit with our kids. The front and side porches were great places to relax and also to dine al fresco, and the outdoor fire-pit was nice and toasty during the cool evenings. The dark night sky at the cabin made for great star viewing. When it was time to leave, we appreciated the simple check-out process. In addition, the owners refunded our security deposit without delay. We were very pleased with our stay, and would highly recommend the cabin to other families visiting the area. Thank you for sharing this wonderful place with us!
