Unfortunately, we stayed in Zion during the recent government shutdown, which closed the national parks while we were there. Fortunately, we were staying at Zion Mountain Ranch, and it helped us to still have a really great trip out there.
We stayed in one of the cabins that has a porch that looks out on the buffalo preserve. Nothing like sitting on your porch with a glass of wine and watching the buffalo roam by. The cabin was cozy - a good size for the two of us.
If you're looking for a place that gives you great TV reception and wifi in your room - this isn't the place for you. It would have been nice to have those amenities, but we found that it just didn't matter much.
The location is on the east side of the park entrance - which is away from the busier area of Springdale. You really have to drive through the switchbacks of zion to get to much, but we got used to it and just didn't drive it at night. If you want to be able to walk to a bunch of different shops and restaurants, you're better off staying in Springdale. But, we ended up eating in the restaurant at the ranch every night. The food was fantastic and they had some great wines as well. Everyone was friendly and we had a pleasant meal every time.
I would definitely recommend this place.
