What We Love

Adventure meets laid-back at this authentic western destination—just a stone’s throw from Zion National Park. While staying here you can be sure to have a very unique experience complete with awe-inspiring views, a buffalo herd right on property and Zion National Park as your backyard. 




Zion Mountain Ranch is located right in the center of many national parks and acts as the perfect basecamp for many exciting day trips. Adjacent to the ranch is Zion National Park, a glorious canyon with towering sandstone formations. If you find yourself within the park at sunrise or sunset, be prepared for a truly awestruck experience. While Zion surely makes an impression, about an hour away is Bryce Canyon, a land of contrasts with towering green ponderosa pines against vibrant red and orange sandstone spires known as “hoodoos.” And you've probably seen pictures of this place—the Grand Canyon is a spectacle of unmatched proportion that you have to see at least once. Yeah, it's two hours away but the ranch can pack a lunch!



From horseback riding, canyoneering, mountain biking, hiking and fly fishing, there's no shortage of fun things to do on the ranch. Zion offers guided horseback tours for guests of any riding ability. Choose from 1, 2 or 4 hour rides through the mountain surrounding Zion National Park. Experience incredible rock formations and sweeping views from some of the lesser-known areas around Zion National Park with a scenic jeep tour. Learn the ropes and rappel into some of Utah’s most dramatic and remote slot canyons on a canyoneering tour. Or hike to stunning overlooks of massive canyons and breathtaking peaks. There's a guided hike for explorers of all experience levels. 


Culinary Highlights

While the menu at Cordwood is always changing based on the harvest, the approach is constant—to honor the ingredients through cuisine that is both simple and elevated. Whether it is breakfast, lunch or dinner the culinary team is always innovating to provide the freshest farm-to-table dining experience. Above all else, the hotel is a ranch. Careful management of the land and healthy sustainable food production is at the heart of the operation. What isn’t grown here, the kitchen carefully sources ingredient by ingredient. True satisfaction comes in sharing it with the guests.
