Very special place
This is a very special place. You could live here comfortably. The location is perfect to explore in all directions, and at night you are alone in the desert, rather than stuck in a condo in Moab.
This place is AMAZING!!
This place is AMAZING!! The killer views, beautiful house, and remote location make it everything you could ever want on vacation. The hosts were amazing and we felt like family by the end of our stay. We couldn't recommend this place more.
This is a beautiful, roomy, centrally located property for seeing the Four Corner sites. However, it does operate off the grid with a back up generator. We had two major problems. One, it was advertised online as accessible. It was not. We had to negotiate six steps to get into the house. That was a problem for two of our party who had mobility issues. Second, we arrived to find out that the 20K generator had been out for two weeks and we had not been called by the property manager, as the owner had instructed him to do. We were advised to not use the dishwasher, washer, dryer or guest CPAP machines after sundown. That was a problem as we had long site-seeing schedules each day and wanted to come in of an evening to shower, do laundry , cook and prepare for the next day. We were also limited with lights and fans. The property manager did not seem very interested in getting an alternative generator so at least the CPAP machines would work. That caused a lot of anxiety by the two parties needing to use them. Fortunately, the property owner was on site and went to work to make our stay as comfortable as possible. She even located a shower chair to make the garden tub more accessible. By the end of our stay the online listing had been corrected. To date there has been no effort made to adjust the fees we paid. We specifically said to the property manager that we felt that would be appropriate since he had failed to call us and allow us to stay at another property in the area. The property owner also agreed that a monetary adjustment should me made. All in all, this would have been an ideal property if it had indeed been accessible and we had been able to use all the appliances when we needed them.
Spacious and elegant!
Although a couple of miles on a track off the main highway, it was easy to find from the directions, and our host Linda left a basket of tasty extras for our arrival. The home has all the facilities and comforts you would need and was spacious and elegant. We travelled to Arches, Canyonlands, Natural Bridges Monument and Goosenecks, plus several areas for trekking and we loved coming ‘hone’ to the cabin to sit and watch the sunset. We had taken groceries and easily cooked our evening meals, enjoying the tranquility of the home and the sense of peace. The house has a large living kitchen area, a large master bedroom, with sliding doors to a further bedroom with two double beds. A third double bedroom also could fit a couple.

Very clean and quiet home
Very clean, quiet home. Great resource book to many local sights. Very comfortable
Gorgeous Night Sky!
My husband and I stayed at the Mustang Mesa Sun, Jun 30-Wed, Jul 3, 2019 with our 2 daughters, ages 18 and 24. What can I say but it was fabulous! Mustang Mesa definitely exceeded our expectations. The land was beautiful and the home was amazing! So very clean and spacious. The kitchen had absolutely everything we could have needed. We had to purchase nothing that we normally have to purchase while staying in a rental home i.e. spices, paper towels, napkins. Beds were comfy. Linens were very nice. Linda, the owner, even left us a nice bottle of wine!
We also really enjoyed the night skies at Mustang Mesa! Our only problem with Mustang Mesa is that 3 nights were not enough! We, including our daughters, wished we could have stayed longer. Thanks Linda for being an amazing host to us and thanks for sharing your home. It was just lovely!

A beautiful cabin!
We will definitely stay here again when we head to Blanding! Such a beautiful cabin with amazing surroundings!

Clean and beautiful!
Clean and well kept, we really appreciated the privacy that Mustang Mesa has to offer. This was a great base for us to enjoy creation and the National/State parks in the area.
Cabin was very clean and VERY well equipped!
We enjoyed our time at this lovely property. The cabin was very clean, bed was comfortable (we were just two and used the king bed), the kitchen was the best equipped we have ever encountered and this all came with lovely mountain views!! We enjoyed sitting on the large covered porch in the evening and had at least one night with a big full moon. If you should be so lucky to have clear skies without a full moon, the star viewing here should be fantastic! There was even a thoughtful welcome basket with a few goodies. We would love to make a return visit if our travels bring us back this way.
We had a wonderful stay!
We loved our time at this beautiful property. It was the perfect staging place for a trip to Natural Bridges and other scenic sites. It was so relaxing and made for a perfect breather from our normal routine. Thanks so much for your hospitality! The banana bread was excellent!
We really enjoyed our time at Mustang Mesa.
The location of Mustang Mesa is incredible with 360 degree views from the Abajo mountains to geological features in Monument Valley. A great place to enjoy the natural beauty of southeast Utah in solitude. The large log cabin style home has plenty of light and places to relax. Th kitchen was well equipped. A perfect place to call home while visiting this area.
An unforgettable experience
This place is amazing. You can see Shiprock, Cortez, the Bears Ears, and Arizona from the deck. It was comfortable, clean, and so relaxing to stay here. The price is steep, but in our case it was worth spending a little extra for such an unforgettable experience
Amenities abounded here!
Our stay at the mustang cabin was beautiful, quiet and slightly remote, enough to get off the main roads. The deck provided amazing views for the stars, sunset, and sunrise! The house was clean, beds comfortable, and the amenities abounding! Highly recommend
It was amazing!
The house is beautiful and very spacious , the view is gorgeous! You feel like in absolute wilderness, no houses around you can see. Sunrise and sunsets are amazing! But if you like to drink a glass of wine while the sun is going down you have to bring it with you because Blanding is a dry town, no beer no wine... also in the restaurants. But the host left a bottle of rose wine in the fridge ! We come back, that’s for sure ! It was amazing!!
A beautiful location
The cabin is in such a beautiful location with a wrap around deck and views for days. Cabin is off a dirt road, 2 miles in and away from noise and light pollution. The stars at night are amazingly bright and dense. The cabin is essentially off grid and kinda cool to see how it is to live off solar power. The cabin was a lot bigger than we expected, at least in the family room, with high ceilings. The beds were really comfortable and we had all the amenities we needed. The washing machine was unfortunately broken though. There was a poor crying kitty down stairs in the private living area below that cried all day and night, we felt really bad for him and it was hard to sleep. We contacted Jerry about it and I think the hosts came and picked him up the next day. Otherwise we had a really great stay and had a great time with our family cooking dinner and playing games, singing songs and celebrating my moms 70th. Thank you!! - Elaine
Great house. Great views. Great location
We loved the house. It was secluded and quiet but still only three miles from the local town. We also loved our ability to use it as our base camp for day trips to local national parks and outdoor activities. Highly recommend to anyone who wants a real chance to get away from it all.
Lovely log cabin!
If you're traveling in Southeast Utah this home is a great alternative to hotels in the area. Its a lovely log cabin remotely located off the main highway, you literally cannot see another home around you when standing on the huge wraparound porch. The house was spacious and very comfortable, plenty large for our family of 4. It is a great location if you're visiting Monument Valley, Valley of the Gods, Canyonlands National Park and several other state parks. The house runs on solar so note that you need to carefully follow the rules regarding use of appliances, lights and AC (and they operate no differently).
Excellent place for us
This was an excellent place for us. The first thing we noticed upon arrival was the quiet. We also used the note book with suggestions of sights to see and hikes to take, and the house was centrally located to all the great places we visited. Thank you so much.
The property was fabulous. We had a great experience, but the best were the stunning sunsets.

From the moment we arrived until we left, Mustang Mesa was such a wonderful experience. The owner was very helpful and gave us a warm welcome. The location was perfect for our adventures. Can't wait to come back.
Best spontaneous trip EVER!
We had the best time ever at this cabin. It was really nice and the location was perfect to attend so many national parks for our kids. I just wish it had a grill outside to do some grilling and that is my only complaint. It was so beautiful there and peaceful. The stars were amazing and the views were breathtaking.
Perfection! When you retreat to this great home you'll relax and enjoy amazing views from your private deck east to Mesa Verde and west to the Henry Mountains. The floor plan is spacious and attractive. We easily explored the Bears Ears area from Valley of the Gods to Natural Bridges and took in a day of golf at nearby Monticello. We'd love to visit again!

We totally enjoyed this lovely cabin, and can see ourselves returning in warmer weather. We visited in April, and it was a bit cool to be out on the beautiful wrap-around deck! (Next time!) It is beautifully furnished and quite comfortable. The kitchen is small, but has everything you could possible want, and functions beautifully. I recommend this property highly!

My wife and I stayed at Mustang Mesa for three nights in late April - a very comfortable 3-bedroom cabin in a beautiful setting just outside Blanding, Utah. The location is excellent for day-tripping in any direction, or to just hang out and enjoy quiet solitude, wide vistas and brilliant night skies. The cabin is well-appointed with great passive solar design and an in-floor heating system, wrap-around deck, beautiful great room, and a well-provisioned kitchen. It's also off-grid, with a solar array and propane generator tucked away down the hill, a feature we appreciated. If the generator ever came on during our stay (doubtful), we never heard it. When we return again to Southeast Utah, this property will be the yardstick we use to evaluate alternatives - a highly recommended choice!
Very private-great property!
Very private-great property! Excellent communication-easy directions. Large gathering space-well stocked kitchen. The deck is absolutely huge-nice star gazing. Well maintained property.
We loved our stay at the Mustang Mesa cabin!
We loved our stay at the Mustang Mesa cabin! Sparkling clean, stunning setting in the desert with views for what seems hundreds of miles, comfortable beds and beautifully furnished. The kitchen has everything you could possibly need. Host was very responsive. I hope to stay here again!
beautiful stay near Canyon Lands and Bears Ears
by George Feldman
This is THE nicest VRBO place in which we have ever stayed! There are unbelievable views in all directions; the house is airy and the highest quality. The photos do not do it justice----unlike many places in which photos exaggerate the beauty. Linda is a gracious host. We will be coming back to the mustang mesa cabin.
the owner stayed in the basement
by Emily H
We stayed at the Mustang Mesa. On a positive note the cabin beautiful just as the pictures show on the web! It was also clean and very secluded. On a negative note the owner stayed in the basement while we lived on the main floor. The main reason we picked it was because it was secluded and we expected to be alone. The owner did stop by the first night we were there and say that she would be working on the property the first night we arrived. We had no idea she would be living there and would be there the whole time. It was just really creepy knowing someone else was there on the floor below us and had access to where we were. She mainly kept quiet although one day when we came back I could hear her talking on the phone and it really startled me as it sounded like someone was in the main part of the cabin. We did call and complain and they gave us a $18.31 refund per day. We felt like we should have received more of a refund, but that was better than nothing. If you choose to stay there and want to be alone, I would definitely recommend asking if the owner will be staying in the basement! Overall we were very disappointed because of that.
Response: We're happy that you enjoyed the home! Sometimes a property owner will stay briefly at a property in order to perform maintenance, although most are very quiet and courteous to their guests, and try not to impose on privacy. Your experience was a rare case. We receive far more guest comments saying they wish they had seen more of their hosts during their stay, than we do comments suggesting they were left alone. We hope to have you back again at another vacation home by Canyonlands Lodging.
This place is amazing!
by Lisbeth Louderback
This place is amazing! Great views, beautiful sunsets and very secluded (but not too far away from town). The house is accommodating and clean. A lamp over the dining table would be a nice addition. Linda, the owner, is very nice and welcoming. We definitely plan to come back next year!
Wonderful June Stay
by Krista Kiehl
Our family of four loved our stay here. The house is secluded and beautiful, with amazing views. The house has everything you could need for a very comfortable, relaxing stay. During our stay we visited Canyonlands Natl Park, Moab, Arches Natl Park, Mesa Verde, 4 Corners, and Goose Neck State Park - all 1 to 1 1/2 hour drives. The house is really amazing - the pictures don't do the views justice!
Beautiful house in an amazing location. Wrap around deck provides endless views in all directions. House is completely by itself for complete privacy. Nice bedrooms (three total -- with sliding wooden doors separating two), full kitchen, huge living room with high ceilings, two bathrooms, one of which is huge with full laundry, lots of windows. The house is also "off the grid" so energy consumption must be watched carefully, though we never had any problems.

We loved the house with the wrap around deck! Beautiful surroundings
I was traveling with a large group.
I was traveling with a large group. The place was quiet and secluded but with all the amenities we needed. It was all that we expected and easy to get to, check-in, and get on our way when we were done!
Mustang Mesa cabin was just beautiful. It was centrally located for all our areas of interest. We had 4 in our group and everything worked out great with the exception of the internet. It was on or off for a couple days. Vital when you are trying to make accommodations for activities. Other than that the place is simply perfect.
by New Guest
We very much enjoyed our stay at Mustang Mesa. The place is comfortable, beautiful and had all the amenities needed to cook. The furniture was comfortable and there was good lighting for reading. . The views are incredible and the wrap around deck was wonderful. We are on a 3 week road trip, and this was one of our very favorite places! Thank you.
We will be back
by B Carter
We thoroughly enjoyed our time spent at the Mustang Mesa cabin outside Blanding. We used it for a base camp to explore SE Utah and SW Colorado, returning each evening to find a space of tranquil beauty. What was even better was knowing that we were using solar power for our cabin needs, keeping that nighttime sky just as dark as possible for stargazing. We will be back!
The cabin/house is lovely and very remote - if you prefer being away from it all.
The cabin/house is lovely and very remote - if you prefer being away from it all. We stayed there ten nights. The house was well stocked, clean, and inviting. I would stay there again and recommend it to friends. One thing to keep in mind: it is remote and far from the national parks and other sites -except Blanding, which is only a few miles away. (The visitor center and dinosaur museum in Blanding are both excellent.) From the cabin we drove to Canyonlands, Monument Valley, Valley of the Gods, Mesa Verde, Arches. It was so much better than staying in a hotel in town, and I Highly recommend it.
The Mustang Mesa cabin was much more than we expected.
by Kozak and Wynn Families
The Mustang Mesa cabin was much more than we expected. It was the perfect size and setting. The 12 foot wrap around deck surrounding the cabin was amazing to watch the sun, stars and moon from. The cabin is gorgeous and well built. Thank you for sharing it with us.
Response: This cabin is located near some of the top 15 star gazing places in the world. Thanks for being here.
Beautiful & spacious cabin!
Beautiful & spacious cabin! Very clean,it had everything we needed. The views & sunrises were amazing! Thank you for a wonderful stay!
Response: Yes, the sunrises and sunsets are amazing, and the star gazing is out of this world! Hope to see you again.
Mustang Mesa Cabin was a surprise and an experience for all our family: kids, in particular, were thrilled.

We have stayed at many of the Canyonlands lodging cabins.
by The Currents
We have stayed at many of the Canyonlands lodging cabins. Always very happy with all of them. Our most recent stay was at the Mustang Mesa Cabin. So remote, so quiet, so beautiful. All Solar powered. This is an extremely well built, upper end home, not a cabin. We can't wait to come back. We hunt, fish, and golf in the area. Jerry and Tina have always been so helpful. Thanks for all the great choices. See ya again soon.
I wish there was a "+" on the rating because I would certainly give our stay a 5+ rating.
by Alice s.
I wish there was a "+" on the rating because I would certainly give our stay a 5+ rating. The Mustang Mesa Cabin was more than we ever expected and Jerry and Tina were excellent hosts and most responsive to our questions. We appreciated their assistance in planning day trips so we wouldn't miss anything. The cabin was very roomy and clean, the kitchen was completely equipped, the bathroom towels were thick and plentiful, and furniture was comfortable, and there was plenty of room. The view from every direction was beautiful. Yes, some of the sites are a bit of a drive, but we knew that and actually found the location to be perfect for us because it was fairly centrally located for the sites we were visiting. I highly encourage anyone who is planning to spend time in this area to stay at one of these cabins.
We had a Great Night in Mustang Mesa. Everything is fine.
I Hope we will be back soon.
Thank you for your emails.
