Come unwind at our family's private 20-acre Starlight Ranch, the ideal Southern Utah vacation home for your family or group of up to 6 people! We're out away from the stress and sounds of city life, but close enough that you still feel connected and can easily access all the incredible sights of the region from one central location. * Our ranch home is perfectly situated in the middle of Southern Utah's best attractions. It's less than an hour from here to the gates of Zion and Bryce on back roads; 1.5 hours to some of Escalante's best slot canyons and hikes; and only 2 hours from the Grand Canyon's North Rim and Paria (the Wave area). * You'll be immersed in the beautiful, rugged alpine/high desert landscape that Utah is famous for. On the drive to our ranch, pay careful attention and you'll see breathtaking red-rock sandstone canyons; farms growing seasonal crops; carvings of pioneers etched onto the sides of stone cliffs; the old "Gunsmoke" set; and probably several different kinds of local wildlife too (deer, eagles, rabbits, fox, snakes, mice, etc). We intentionally bought property 'off-grid' to have a cabin getaway free of the sounds and stress of civilization, so we about 40 miles away from the nearest town, 15 of which is down a graded dirt road. But we are still able to enjoy lots of the "creature comforts" that we're all accustomed to by harnessing our own solar energy, which allows us to make our own electricity and to pump naturally-filtered water out of our deep artesian well. It's not fancy, but then again, it's not intended to be! Rather, it's an authentic country cabin retreat, furnished for leisurely comfort and quality time spent together. * All of that said, we do also have some awesome extras to make your cabin feel like a "real house." Your cabin will also have gas appliances, satellite TV, and Wifi internet provided throughout your stay. (However, please do keep in mind that we may occasionally experience outages or slower Wifi service than you are accustomed to - please plan accordingly!). * For year-round use indoors, the cabin's cast-iron wood-burning stove provides a wonderful aroma, warmth, and cozy ambiance. * In the evenings, you can roast marshmallows, cook dutch-oven on the outdoor fire pit, or enjoy the propane grill** as you gaze at the millions of stars arrayed above you. (Yes, they really are still there!) [**Note: if you plan to grill much outside, you may want to bring your own propane canister, or let us know and we will have canisters on hand for you to use.] * We even offer free use of our telescope for stargazing if you are able/interested! * Our ranch is nestled in a glen beneath a beautiful butte (we call it "the Redhead") and its ridges. So you can walk right out your front door and explore these areas for hours... perfect for day hikes and rock hunting. * The cabin's kitchen has a full size gas refrigerator and stove, double sink, coffeemaker, and all the dishes, cookware, cups, basic spices, and utensils you'll need for your stay. * The bathroom is appointed with fresh towels for your shower or bath, and you'll also have a full-size clothes washer and detergent in your cabin. (No dryer due to electricity draw, so Mother Nature and a clothes line will quickly dry your clothes for you!) * While this cabin has one bathroom, another full bathroom with shower "may" be available for a nominal charge. Just ask. * Your cabin has wood flooring with rugs, thick aspen paneling throughout, knotted-pine furniture in the living room and master bedroom, many authentic Southwestern furnishings, and Art's breathtaking photography of local sites and landmarks throughout. * Four bedrooms: Master has two queen beds; BR2 has a queen; BR3 has a single; BR4 has a double futon. More accommodations may be available for a nominal fee, just ask. * All linens, towels, cookware, dishes, etc. are provided for your enjoyment during your stay. * We may have other outdoor or sporting equipment as needed and are happy to provide sightseeing help or advice--ask for specifics re: details, pricing, and availability. * Starlight Ranch is also in a prime locale for the local fall hunting seasons. * We look forward to sharing our home-away-from-home with you and your group or family.
