We are the perfect location for hiking the world famous Narrows hike or any other adventure near Zion National Park. We are a 45 minute drive from the East entrance of Zion and placed upon a primitive , backcountry setting, overlooking the trail.

Closed during the winter. Open mid-May through the first of October.

The space
The yurt is 572 square feet with an open floor plan. There is plenty of space outside to relax in a hammock, play a game of horseshoes or sit out on the deck and enjoy the view.

Guest access
Guests have private access to the entire yurt and surrounding property!

Other things to note
A detailed list of what to bring & what we provide can be found on our website. Guests can opt bring their own linens/sleeping bags/blankets if preferred, or linens & towels can be provided. Please message me letting me know how many people will be sharing a bed or need one of their own. We have 4 full beds and 3 twin beds (one of the twin beds is a pullout trundle.)

The following is what is definitely not at the yurt as to throw no surprises your way: There is no plumbing or running water to or from the yurt. The toilet, shower & outdoor sink are located in a separate facility close to the yurt. There is no electricity or outlets to plug in anything, nor are there any generators. There is no cell phone reception at the yurt. There is no internet and no satellite phone.

You will be in primitive country which means miles from help if needed. Please use caution & good judgement when at the yurt! And hey, enjoy the solitude!

One of the best features of the yurt is that it offers a mountain to yourself - no noise pollution or noisy tent neighbors - just you, your guests and Mother Nature!

Growing up on a sheep ranch definitely put the outdoors in my blood. I seek that adventure, solitude and joy from breathing in fresh mountain air. I became a mom 2014 of a beautiful baby girl, who first experienced my passion at 5 weeks old on a camping trip in the Uintas. To be able to rent our yurt out to great people, and work an honest living on our ranch is my idea of living the dream!

During your stay
Our family owns and still operates a small sheep ranch a few miles up the road. We will not be staying near the yurt property and due to it's primitive location, there is no cell phone service or internet to contact us there. If there is a problem at the yurt, one would either need to drive up the road to the ranch or drive towards Zion to get service. So enjoy time away from the city, away from technology and become one with nature.
