Perfect for a group out glamping!
Our group of 16 people loved staying at the pavilion. Perfect for a group looking to do some glamping!
Much better than expected!!
Central eating area and fire pit, better than expected bathrooms - showers were awesome. Instructions on getting there were perfect.
Cute, all amenities, Dark Sky!
I booked this place for one night to start off an 11 day camping trip in Utah. This was one of our favorite spots. We originally booked a cabin, but the bunk beds don't have railings and with two kids we thought the Western Wagon would be better. It was no problem to switch since I did it the same or very next day. The Western Wagon was awesome. The inside is all wooden and there is a bed with a curtain dividing it from an entry way that has two benches with futon mattresses on either side. Sleeps four comfortable. The Wagon has electricity and wi-fi, but no heat. Plenty of blankets, but we were there in June so it wasn't really a factor. The bathrooms which are shared among the lodgers are clean and actually nicer than most three star hotel bathrooms. They had wooden floors, nice sinks, and even dispensers with shampoo, conditioner, and body wash. The hosts provided towels and wash cloths. There was a covered pavilion with tables for eating, a large grill, and a very functional kitchen with two fridges. The fire ring is large and meant for all to use together, but we were there in a dry spell and there was a fire ban. I would definitely stay here again. Really a very charming place. The night sky was beautiful.
The tipi was fantastic
by Zach Watkins
The tipi was fantastic - it was windy while I was in this part of Utah, but the tipi kept my dog and I sheltered. The real bonus was the bathrooms and kitchen at this site - far more comfortable than I ever expected. This is an awesome little space, with fantastic views, perfect for when you want to get away from it all without quite getting away from it all. Thanks, Jerry!
Great, Unique Experience
“Such a great, unique, experience! The location is 10 or so miles from the nearest towns with great views of the nearby mountains. It's like camping but with the comfort of a bed, shower, etc. Even though the bathroom is separate from the cabin, the bathroom is very nice. We heard coyotes, saw deer, rabbits and other things you might not see if you were staying in a hotel in town”
Very cute and quaint!
Stayed in the Barn Silver/Trigger rooms. Found it to be something out of the ordinary, cute and quaint. Loved that the dogs and grand kids could roam around and get their energy worked out.
One issue we had was the fact that firewood wasn't provided. We are new at staying at a camping place, so maybe this is the norm, but I think it should be stated in the online site so people aren't surprised and/or disappointed when they're told to buy some firewood in town or drag your own in from the property.
OWNER NOTE: There is firewood here and I showed you where it was, right next to the cabin area. Sorry you missed that communique.
Couldn't be more perfect
Loved staying in the horse barn! It couldn't have been more perfect. It was a hard place to leave. Thank you!

Great host, clean, and such a delightful place to stay. We have been telling all our friends and family. We stayed in the Trigger and Silver rooms. Rustic experience that was right up our alley....
My bunk house stay was perfect in every way.
by Ruth Naylor
My bunk house stay was perfect in every way. Extra bedding was supplied in the event of cold weather, plenty of towels, WiFi was available if you had to keep up with the world, and everything was clean. The Murdock's were generous with their knowledge of the area, the peace was superb,and my only discontent was lack of time; I could have stayed forever. It is a 5 star retreat in every way!
We spent 3 nights in the Bunkhouse and the whole family loved staying there.

We spent 3 nights in the Bunkhouse and the whole family loved staying there. It\'s quiet, well equip and we loved the two dogs Boots and Inja who are very friendly.
Thanks Jerry and Tina
We have enjoyed it so much!
We have enjoyed it so much! It was like a home away from home. We wish we had more time to do all the other trips that are mentioned in your journal. We did stop at the town of Bluff and also went to the Butler Wash trail to see the ruins after visiting Hovenweep and Four Corners today!
Thanks for everything!
If you are coming to the area to get away and enjoy the beauty of the land this is the place.

If you are coming to the area to get away and enjoy the beauty of the land this is the place. We enjoyed the scenery and the unique to sleep. When we come back this is the location we will choose again.
Our Bunkhouse Barn Cabin rooms are the most unique of all our lodging. Plush western rooms in half of a Horse Barn Setting, nice bathrooms, hot showers, with a large covered lounge area, picnic tables, BBQ Grill, and a campfire bowl. Some call it Glamping, which is luxury glamour camping. We welcome this new property to our family of cabins and lodges.
Thank you for you visit with us,
Jerry and Tina
My husband and I traveled to the Monticello/Blanding area to ride on the ATV trails.
by Robin Sherrif
My husband and I traveled to the Monticello/Blanding area to ride on the ATV trails. We stayed at the Bunkhouse in the Trigger Room. We were honored to be their first guests in this new addition to their lovely properties! It was a unique experience. We literally stayed in the barn! A nice setup with two cozy bedrooms and adjacent bathrooms! The breezeway has been turned into a nice covered patio area, with a common sink. This would be a great place for two couples to stay, and you can bring your horses! The family size fire pit is a nice addition which sits just outside the barn door. Jerry and Tina, the owners were so kind and also gave us great trail information to ride our side by side nearby! The surrounding area is breathtaking! Not only was the Bunkhouse nice, we also got to stay in the White Pine Cabin, which was more than we could ever hope for! It is beautiful, and Tina's decorating talent makes both places so warm and inviting! I can only imagine what the rest of their properties look like! We also appreciated the fresh home baked cookies we got on arrival! I highly recommend any of their properties and do indeed, intend to return...SOON! Also, Inja and Boots (the furry camp hosts) came to visit often and gave us many loves! Thank you Jerry and Tina for an awesome Birthday vacation!
Response: Thank you for being our First Guests in the new Bunkhouse!! Hurry back!
The four of us very much appreciate the great accommodations, Our horses also loved the Horse Hotel.
