I loved the stay. Alex was very friendly and patient in walking us through all the amenities. The place in itself is amazing with spectacular views of the night sky.
Definitely coming back.

Great yurt experience

The yurt was pretty magical especially being able to see constellations right out the top window. There is another yurt close by and houses on the dirt road leading up to yurt so you aren’t totally remote. You can hear dogs barking all night. Make sure to zip the windows down as it gets pretty windy at night.

Thank you for taking the time to leave a review, Gina. I'm sorry the barking dogs bothered you. We have a pack of coyotes that sometimes comes by at night and they get the neighborhood dogs all excited.

Beautiful in every respect. True glamping - glamorous camping - under the stars, staring up the grand wall of Mt. Canaan, part of Utah’s magnificent Grand Staircase. The yurt felt more like the tent of a shiek, with comfortable bed and all the amenities. Very quiet. Loves the heated outdoor shower! We will be back.

Charming yurt with beautiful views

We had a wonderful time enjoying our very first yurt experience in such a beautiful location! Highly recommend especially if you are going to Zion, it is definitely worth the drive! The yurt was charming and quaint. Falling asleep being able to see the night sky with its skylight/bubble was unforgettable. It had solar powered electricity to charge our phones which was a plus coming from tent camping in Zion. The composting toilet was clean and odorless with a light for nighttime use. One of us was even able to take a hot shower! Advice if multiple people are hoping to shower: don’t turn the shower off in between like we did. Also advise to bring bug spray as the yurt is surrounded by juniper trees attracting gnats, they were just slightly annoying but didn’t seem to bite. Alex the owner was very responsive and helpful.

Alex has positioned his yurt for decent privacy and stunning views of red rock cliffs. Great proximity to mountain biking and Zion park as well.

This simple accommodations are well crafted and cared for. And, Alex is very responsive as a host. I’d most definitely stay again!

We absolutely loved the dessert yurt on Alex's land! The views were breathtaking and it had all the amenities needed to make our stay both enjoyable and comfortable. Alex came over and introduced himself the second night and ensured we had all that we needed to enjoy our stay. He also was kind enough to walk my husband through how to use the thermostat to regulate the temperature of the fire place as well as how to use the shower system. We got the inside scoop on where to travel and how to get there taking the most scenically beautiful routes. We can't say enough about this property and the host! Thank you Alex! We hope to see you again soon when we tour in our RV!

The yurt on Alex’s property was amazing! The views were awesome during the day and at night with all the stars. There was multiple charging outlets, lights, a heater, and a shower! Everything was very well thought out :) I would definitely stay here again!

Spectacular stay! Alex was communicative and helpful. The yurt was spacious and has incredible views of the stars at night! It even has lights, a solar-bank for your phone and hot water in the shower. Will return when we come back to Zion!
