Guest Reviews

this place was perfect by Terri Jackson 01/26/2018
This place was perfect for the 6 of us!! Very clean and cozy! The upstairs family room was a perfect place to visit and watch tv after a full day of balloons and hiking!! Thanks for offering such a wonderful getaway!!
very quietly situated by Maria 01/03/2018
This place is very quietly situated over a hill from the small town of Blanding.
It's perfectly situated to enjoy all the Canyonlands parks within an hour's drive. The beds were comfortable and it was easy to get to after a day of exploring.
Wonderful vacation retreat. by Chris Romney 12/06/2017
We used this house for 4 days of exploring Bears Ears, Grand Gulch, Hovenweep, Natural Bridges, Valley of the Gods and Monument Valley. The drives are long but scenic. The cedars house was perfect for our group of 8. The kitchen is well appointed and we had a full Thanksgiving feast. There are comfortable beds, wifi, hi-def TV's, and a fire pit with benches, wood, roasting sticks and priceless dark sky views. It is situated on a hill outside of town with expansive vistas including nearby Abajo and distant Sleeping Ute mountains. Morning jogs to the reservoir were quiet and peaceful.
Nice place to have base camp by DMVinSD 11/17/2017
Nice little 3 bedroom Cedars cottage. Although one of the rooms has a childs bunk bed in there, it still was sufficient. Kitchen has everything you need and the location is nicely situated for easy access to CanyonLands, Natural Bridges and Bears Ears. I'm sure there are more sights to see around there but we only had so much time. The only negative is that after anyone took a shower the leach field/septic tank area outside stank to high heaven. It went away but boy that was not pleasant for a bit while sitting outside by the fire. It just might need to be emptied. Other than the brief odor bomb, the cabin is a great base camp at a modest price.

Response: We have had two comments about the septic odor and have had the County health inspector certify that the system is in order.
He made one suggestion in hopes of alleviating this recent problem which we will act on immediately. Thank you for your stay!
木屋很有特色,喜欢.房东设施齐全,方便了旅途,特此推荐.但房子外面比较荒凉 by Sha Li 10/17/2017
highly recommend staying here by MarJoe 10/11/2017
Cedars Cabin in Blanding was very nice for our 5 night archeology tour of SE Utah with friends. Having a master suite on ground floor and 2 bdrms and bath upstairs was great for privacy and 4 adults. The cabin had EVERTHING you would need. Took my own laundry detergent and dish soap but didn't need it. They had well stocked kitchen including plastic containers and ziploc bags in 3 sizes. We liked sitting out by the fire 2 nights - it was full moon - so didn't need the big light on the porch that never goes off. Reasons for 4 star: Found a breaker to shut off after calling owner. The nights were cool and we were blasted by cold air coming thru the swamp cooler. Had to tape over the vents with trash bags and put a blanket on it to stop. The drain in the master suite is very slow and you end up standing in your shower water 3 inches deep. Not sure we liked L/R being upstairs, hard for some. Would still highly recommend staying here and would come again.

Response: We're thrilled you enjoyed your stay overall and hope to see you again soon! We've made note of your comments and will take measures to ensure a better stay for future guests.
We'll be back! by Brent Carter 10/02/2017
We thoroughly enjoyed our 5 days at the Cedars 3BR Country Cottage this past weekend. We loved how secluded it was, except for the constant visits from deer, wild turkeys, cottontails, and of course Nala. We also saw a black and white cat that came to check on us one evening. It was a delight. The property is clean, eco-friendly, and well furnished. We spent most of our time around the kitchen table each evening, reviewing our adventures of that day and planning the next. We really appreciated the little extras found around the cabin, like hand lotion, soaps, etc. This is our second property we have rented from Canyonlands, and they are always clean and well taken care of. We appreciate the details on how things work, what is expected at check-out, and a place to leave comments. We'll be back! Thanks for maintaining such a wonderful cabin, and thanks to the Lyman's.

Amazingly Cozy Cabin by Diane Thuss 09/23/2017
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at The Cedars, Amazingly Cozy Cabin. We were greeted by our Host and his son. The cabin was immaculate, it exceeded all of our expectations, we were very comfortable. We would definitely stay with Canyonlands Lodging again.
Great house for visiting Needles and Monument Valley by Robert Shapiro 08/20/2017
Great house for visiting Needles and Monument Valley. Blanding has needed services. House has many great touches. Quiet and offers great star gazing. Only gripe was flies.
We loved this cabin by Shannon 08/07/2017
We got the Cedars cabin so that we could use it as a jumping off point to the national parks in the area. We loved this cabin even with a few little quirks (you are in the highland dessert so you need to make adjustments). The cabin was very clean and we had everything we needed to feel at home, even washing soap was provided. There is a grocery store about 3.5 miles down the road which was perfect since we cooked the entire time at the cabin. The one thing I would change about the set up would be that the view from upstairs needs to be utilized more. I didn't come to watch tv on my vacation, I came to see the scenery and the scenery at the cabin was spectacular. Don't be surprised to see bunnies, turkeys and deer on your visit. Thank you for a great place!
A little treasure far away by Steve 07/27/2017
The place is just as described. We were there very little because we were gone during the days until late. There is a lot of love put into this little place....even a fire pit out back. We did not need it as it was late July.

The night sky from this home is the most amazing that I have ever seen. There is no light pollution to dim the sky and it's simply amazing to view God's handiwork from here.

There is a whole house fan and something that we had never heard of called a swamp cooler so we couldn't get the house as cool as we usually have our home for sleeping. Other than that's a jewel.
Great place to stay in Blanding! by Brian 07/21/2017
Great place to stay in Blanding!
Spacious, Affordable, Nice Location by Kevin Roush 06/22/2017
As a family of four, we had lots of room to spread out in the Cedars Country Cottage. Kids loved it too. It was centrally located for what we wanted to do in the area. Owners/management were quick with answers and responses and willing to check on things. Beds were comfortable and shower was amazing. Our 12 year old was ready to move in permanently.
Perfect for our needs by Ron 04/29/2017
The cedars cottage was great! Very quiet, secluded, comfortable, nice views etc.. We used it as our home base to explore Cedar Mesa. We loved Cedar Mesa and will be back, and would definitely book this cottage again. The owner and renting company were very responsive and communicative. Everything ran very smoothly.
FYI, Blanding is a "DRY" town. So if you like a beer or glass of wine after a day of hiking, bring it along. Also restaurant choices are very limited. We always pack and cook our own food so this was not an issue for us.
Thank you so much for this amazing cabin. by Ochoa Family 04/14/2017
It was very cozy and I wished we could have rented it for longer. We will plan next time for longer so spend more time to enjoy our family and this secluded place. God Bless You!
Beautiful cabin in a gorgeous place! by Pletcher Family 04/12/2017
The quiet and privacy was so appreciated after long days exploring the area. Thanks again for sharing.
Clean and Private by Michelle 04/12/2017
Thank you so much! The cabin was very clean and so cozy and private. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay!! We have left early this morning on our way to the Grand Canyon! I posted a picture this morning and will provide a review on VRBO. Only one thing you might want to check at the cabin, the Pur filter on the faucet runs slow, I suppose that might be the way it's supposed to work but just in case.
Thank you again!
Owners Note:
Yes the Pur filter runs a little slow but everything else was great!
The Hansen family would like to thank you for letting us stay. by Hansens 04/05/2017
The Hansen family would like to thank you for letting us stay. Our only regret is not being able to stay longer!! Very beautiful home and surroundings. The Spirit was felt here. Thanks again
The place is beautiful. by Reagan Family 04/03/2017

Thank you so much! by Guests 02/27/2017
We enjoyed staying in your Cottage. It is beautiful.
We saw the rabbits, beautiful. We wish we could stay another day just to enjoy the scenery.

Suggestions: Mirror in the second bedroom and a second bedside table in the master bedroom.

-- Thank you for the suggestions. We have followed through on both of them. --
Beautiful and Spacious by Allen 11/21/2016
The beautiful and spacious house is situated on a beautiful mountain farming area. We took a lot of pictures during sunrise. Very clean and well maintain. We all had a great time there. Love to come back again
This was a perfect place for our family to stay! by LeeAnn 10/21/2016
Right in the middle of so many wonderful parts of Utah. The home is comfortable and has everything one might need. The beds were fantastic - everyone slept SO well. We will be recommending your home to family and friends and would love to come back again sometime.

This place was great! by J Poulsen 08/09/2016
Cedar View Family Cottage - This place was great! I wish we could have stayed longer! The location was close to town but totally private. There were some nice outdoor benches where we could sit and enjoy the evening sky. Thanks for everything!
