The SpaceEnjoy your stay in Southern Utah in every season! From desert Red Rock to snowy Alpine, there is so much to do and see.
We are located in a hillside development in the trees; each lot is 3 - 5 acres, so lots of open space! We are at an elevation of 5600 feet, so much cooler than Springdale and Zion, a refreshing place to escape the heat in the summer and safely sleep with windows open and cool, quiet air. There are few places you'll see as many stars at night as you will from our deck - day or night the views are stunning!
With easy access from I-15 between Cedar City and St. George, (but well away from road noise and crowds) the Harmony Belle provides an enchanting and peaceful place to rest while you take in everything this part of the world has to offer. Decks and patios surround the house with 3 acres of open space including a garden, lawns and native trees. Our home is large, modern and immaculate, you’ll have plenty of room to relax and you’ll feel very comfortable and safe while you are here.

We can work out an arrangement for a 5th adult on this extra twin bed in the twin room for a fee of $15. per night - just ask.
Breakfast is included in your reservation and includes cold or hot cereal, toast or bagels, coffee, tea, juice, fruit, yogurt, boiled eggs. If you want to make pancakes or something more extensive, you are welcome to use the main kitchen.
This listing includes two private bedrooms/baths (with keyed doors) - one room has a king bedroom, and the other has twins that can be made up as a king with a comfy feather mattress . We also have some very comfortable fold-out sleeping mats, for an extra per-person fee. Small children under 12 no extra charge. We also have another king bedroom and bath available for an additional room fee on the upper level listed under Kolob King, (subject to availability as it is a separate listing).
A separate living area is provided for guests to read, scan email, play games or watch a movie. We have an extensive collection of games, books and movies, as well as satellite TV and free WiFi.
Other amenities include a complete exercise room, sauna, steam shower and hot tub. Guests have 24 hour use of a kitchenette with toaster oven, coffee pot and kettle, mini fridge and convection microwave. Laundry facilities are also available for guests.
You’ll be hosted by a very friendly and well-mannered international couple (Australian and US) with lots of travel experience at similar places worldwide, so we know what you need to be comfortable in our home. We have friends and family all over the world and welcome international visitors. We have an extensive knowledge of the local area and can send you off in the right direction to enjoy the best Southern Utah has to offer.
We don’t have house pets, but will consider allowing your well-trained dog, just let us know about them, and be prepared to keep them with you and on leash outside. We don't have a fenced yard and there are lots of rabbits and chipmunks to take off and chase... Guest AccessWe have a large home on two levels, when you rent the Harmony Belle, you are renting the ground floor with a kitchenette (refrigerator, convection microwave, toaster oven, coffee pot, hot plate, dishes and silver), living room with a big screen TV, exercise room, 2 bedrooms and two baths. Handicapped guests have found it easy to maneuver here, and one of the baths includes a walk-in shower.
You have access to the upper level and are welcome to cook in the main kitchen and relax on the deck. The upper level includes a full gourmet kitchen and a deck with a barbecue, and you are welcome to cook your meals here. The upstairs dining room table seats eight. Interaction with GuestsYou’ll be hosted by a very friendly and well-mannered international couple (Australian and US) with lots of travel experience at similar places worldwide, so we know what you need to be comfortable in our home. We have friends and family all over the world and welcome international visitors. We have an extensive knowledge of the local area and can send you off in the right direction to enjoy the best Southern Utah has to offer. We love to meet our guests and share breakfast or a glass of wine on the deck in the evening. We are happy to help you plan your travel, book day trips and recommend our favorite spots. We work from home and are most always available if you have questions. If you prefer privacy, the guest area is completely private with three ground level entrances. We live on the upper level, and have a third guest room there as well (Kolob King with Private Bath). The NeighborhoodWe are in a small neighborhood with 4 -5 acre lots in a secluded area surrounded by wilderness. Incredible views in all directions, very quiet, next to the Pine Valley Wilderness area. Deer, turkey and other wildlife are common sites from the house. Very safe and away from traffic. Getting AroundWe will send you a detailed map once you've booked to help you find us; it is a little tricky the first time here.
There isn't any public transportation in the area! Other Things to NoteOur biggest request is that our guests be mindful that we live in a private neighborhood. The speed limit is 25 mph, and slower is better. There are about 17 homes all spread quite a ways apart on a mile-long gravel loop (makes a great morning run or evening walk!). Many locals enjoy walking their dogs and riding their horses around the loop and are often on the road. We just don't want our neighbors to have any complaints about our guests. By making sure you are arriving at the right house before you pull into a driveway you’ll help us out greatly, we've had guests wake up neighbors in the past and we want to be sure this doesn't happen to you. There are also lots of deer year-round. Beautiful to see from the deck, but not so pretty on the hood of your rental car!
Sorry, but this isn't a great place if you are looking for a party house. Family fun is okay, the yard is great for kids to explore, but no wild bachelor parties…
Smoking is okay outside on the decks.
