This room is upstairs in our 1868 pioneer cabin.  It has a queen bed with a memory foam mattress.  There is a half bath right outside the room and a full bath downstairs.  The baths are shared if other rooms are booked. 

The yard is large and there are several gardens, greenhouse, and flower gardens to enjoy. Well behaved people-friendly pets are very welcome. We have a zip line to help keep your dog from running off and a large fenced garden area if you need to leave the dog for a while. We have chickens so if your dog might bother them we'll just close the gate for the chickens so that they are protected in their own yard. Fresh eggs and seasonal vegetables and herbs are free for our visitors. There are fruit trees in the area and plenty of places to access other fresh goods like cheese, honey, yogurt and milk products from organic farms. The closest grocery store is 17 minutes away so we recommend you purchase groceries before you come here to camp. There is a gas station five miles away and they sell some overpriced emergency food and have a small deli for sandwiches. We can share some refrigerator space if you don't have a cooler. 

Our playground has a trampoline, swing, slide, sandbox, hobbit hut fort, and of course our art bus which is fun to play in for kids. There's a lawn area as well as cement patio for chalk drawing or games, and we have plenty of tables that can be set up or arranged for meals or parties. We have lights and colorful decorations that make it fun and festive. We have a pack-n-play if you need for an infant or toddler, as well as plenty of bedding and towels if you don't bring your own. We have some great toddler toys and a few fun things for bigger kids. We also have a lot of books, videos and other distractions if you just want to Netflix and chill (in the privacy of your own tent or other accommodations). We have HULU, Amazon Prime and a few other subscription services if you want to watch movies but our connection can be a little slow in the evening. We don't have cable TV. Bill and I are middle aged liberal hippie types who just enjoy good conversation, a mostly organic diet, and lots of loud laughter and light mindedness. We are happy to keep to ourselves and leave you your privacy or join you by the firepit and share stories and some laughter. We're pretty laid back and unfussy but clean and organized most of the time. Most of our neighbors are absent except on the occasional weekend when they come up from Vegas or other places. We have a nice park just 100 ft. from our own lot that has a great basketball court, playground and large grassy park to run or play softball. The town is very quiet, off the beaten path but close enough to access most amenities in a short drive. We have gorgeous views of the mountains, including Pine Valley Mountain, Bumblebee Mountains, Harmony Mountain, and of course the ever stunning Kolob Canyons. Look them up. They will take your breath away.

Seriously!!!!! This was the most amazing experience! We absolutely LOVED the Red Hen Gardens and the hosts- Dana and Bill! They had the best hospitality and completely took care of us! They even offered to feed us! Such amazing people! And the artwork there is beautiful!! The room was perfect and adorable! We loved the scenery and the good vibes the entire cottage has! There’s so much history here (built in 1868!) I loved the adorable little well in the front, the chickens running around, the handprints and names imprinted on the steps, the BEAUTIFUL herb garden that we were able to pick from, and the gorgeous scenery around the home in New Harmony! The stay was absolutely PERFECT!! Thank you SO much Dana and Bill! We will be back to visit soon! Maybe even with our family to camp out! Oh and I LOVED waking up to the rooster in the morning! It was amazing and peaceful- just what we were looking for!! I totally forgot about the fresh eggs, but I would love to try them next time! Thank you again!!! <3

Front view- WOW! Chickens running around- and cute little hand prints on the stairs! BEAUTIFUL garden !!! View from our room, early morning!

What a glorious review! Thankyou so much, April. I sure hope you get to come back soon. We enjoyed getting to know you and are so glad you were comfortable and had such a great experience. It feels so good to have our efforts recognized and to share with people who appreciate our humble home. I hope you'll consider us again if you come to the area. It's great here in the winter too. There's so much to do and see.

We had a great stay! Owners are welcoming and easy going. Stayed in one of the rooms upstairs. As we were the only guest in the house, we had the upstairs toilet and sink for ourselves. The fully equipped kitchen was great! Thank you for the eggs and greens. Would love to stay again!

We loved our stay at The Red Hen! Dana and Bill were great hosts, and the whole experience was more than we could possibly have imagined. Enjoy fresh eggs for breakfast and go to sleep with the neighborhood farm animals singing you to sleep. Just a short drive to Zion National Park and worth it for the at-home stay.

Response from Dana, the Host, on July 21st, 2019

Thankyou, Judy. We love it when our guests have a great time and enjoy the buttery rich goodness of fresh eggs right from the chickens butt. Aren't they the cutest chickens? I hope you get to come back some day.
