Property Details

The Juniper Ridge Family Cabin (located 3 miles north of Blanding, Utah) is truly one of our most western cabin accommodations, featuring wrap around deck, fire pit, TV, DVD, WIFI, picnic table, fully furnished kitchen, dining room table, all linens, washer & dryer! Sleeps up to 10+ people including adults and children.
A one-of-a-kind vacation cabin, set alone on Blue Mountain Road with a 360-degree view in all directions as far as the eye can see, Colorado, New Mexico, Arizona, and Utah! Relax on the large deck in the sun or shade. The Juniper Ridge Family Cabin makes you feel secluded, while just two miles away lies the most popular lake in San Juan County - great for swimming, fishing, boating, and water sports!
Inside, you'll find much more space than you anticipated - with stunning vaulted ceilings, 5 bedrooms, 2 baths, a full kitchen, wood-burning stove, a very spacious living room, and cozy sofas!
Four of the bedrooms have a Queen Bed for comfort. The last bedroom has a twin bunk bed.
All linens (towels, sheets, blankets, pillows, etc.) are provided for you. The kitchen is also stocked with all the cooking and serving utensils - all you bring is the food and condiments!
WIFI, TV, and DVD are provided at no additional cost - that is of course if you ever have time to use them. Our guess is, you'll be so busy exploring all the popular national and state parks and monuments in southeast Utah - that's right, the Juniper Ridge Family Cabin is located centrally among more than a dozen of them!

Great place! by Audree 01/05/2020
A great property, close enough to town for convenience. Only thing that was strange was the smell of the water, maybe well water. Great place! If ever down that way again would definitely stay there again.
Had a great stay by Skyler 01/05/2020
A Little dusty it seemed like maybe a few of the rooms hadn’t been used in a long time and sense they hadn’t been slept in they haven’t been cleaned. Owners greeted us the first night we arrived and pretty much left us alone after that. That was nice I usually avoid properties where the owner is onsite as it usually means nonstop intrusions while we are trying to relax. Overall we had a great stay and will add this to our list of places to stay in the future.
Perfect place by Chase 11/24/2019
We stayed at Juniper Ridge Cabin as a group of 6 work colleagues, and this location was perfect for our needs! Not only is the cabin conveniently located to Blanding (where we were meeting with the local Aging Services team), but being in one house versus several hotel rooms was ideal. The home is cozy, well-stocked with essentials, clean, and provided extraordinary views. We could not be happier! Thank you for such a great rental experience.

Lovely house by Teverly 11/24/2019
This was the most peaceful, lovely environment for us. Our Family came back to Monticello, staying in Blanding for a funeral service to lay to rest our Dearly Beloved Patriarch of our family.
We LOVE this place!! by Shelley 11/10/2019
This was our second stay. We love the place. The round dining table seats 10 and has this great revolving lazy susan in the middle. Makes serving big, hungry groups easy and results in lots of long and lovely dinner table discussions.

A great value! by Arnold 11/10/2019
Lots of space lots of privacy and one of the best Airbnb values I've ever used
Very spacious and comfortable by Leli 09/15/2019
This cabin was spacious and comfortable. There were a lot of amenities. Their local tips book was awesome. We will definitely book again.
Wonderful place! by Betsy 09/15/2019
This is a wonderful, peaceful retreat for a very large family. The cottage is absolutely beautiful - every inch hand done by the owners. The property is so calm and peaceful and the deck makes for perfect stargazing. They have compiled a large book of everything you need to know about the area which was very helpful. They even leave all the fixin's for a country breakfast. The house was immaculate. Just a lovely spot for the whole family to spread out and relax. Thanks again!
Spectacular views! by Santhosh 09/15/2019
Spectacular views, especially during sunrise and sunsets and great night sky views too. Unique decor, books and musical instruments and other artifacts. A little difficult to access the rooms downstairs for the elderly since the spiral staircase is a bit narrow and you have to watch your head. Good mid way point to Arches, Mesa Verde, Monument Valley. Delicious home made pancake mix for one breakfast. Had everything we needed to spend a full week with family and grandparents. Unique and beautiful house. Wish the pesky flies could be kept out, but it is the desert, and they snuck in if the doors were left open. Would love to go back again
Top Notch and Greatly Appreciated! by Michelle 09/14/2019
Juniper Ridge is an amazing place to stay! Great views all the way around and an amazing, starry sky at night. Perfect for large groups with lots of room to spread out and relax. Close to many of the area attractions - an excellent home base. Hospitality was top notch and greatly appreciated. Would love to stay again!
Felt at home here by Beth 08/11/2019
The place was beautiful and the hosts were thoughtful! Special touches were added making the stay unique! Felt at home here.

Great place to stay by Christine 06/12/2019
Great place to stay
Loved everything! by Lita 05/05/2019
We loved everything about this unique log home. Mountain view’s to the rear and expansive views over four states to the front. The property was very clean with fully equipped kitchen and homemade buttermilk hot cakes mix provided for breakfast. Beds were very comfortable with very nice bed linens. Overall, a very enjoyable stay.
Loved our stay here! by Ashley 04/15/2019
We loved our stay. The cabin was easy to find. Had multiple amenities and posted signs as resources for cabin use, WiFi, and garbage. Our family felt at home and safe. Huge thanks for creating a kid friendly space. I was relieved that my children could play without me worrying they would break decor. The owners were on the property. I loved that they checked in to introduce themselves. We're available for questions and overall delightful. I'd highly recommend this location!
Looking forward to our next visit here! by Jamie 04/15/2019
We had a great stay at the Juniper Ridge Family Cabin! The dining room table that seats 8-10 people was a great gathering place for our breakfasts and dinners. The outside deck areas and views were a plus! The only request we have is for more nightstands and lamps in the bedrooms. We look forward to returning again!
Great place and location by Justin 04/15/2019
Great place and location. Nice personal touches. Super clean.
Nice Rustic cabin by Robert 10/30/2018
Great location and plenty of room. Rustic in nature. Steps to downstairs hard to negotiate and home could be cleaner. Overall, a good value and a pleasant stay.”
Great place to stay by Justin 10/30/2018
This is an amazing location with great views and stock up on all the necessary amenities. Though we stayed pretty busy doing things away from the location, the hosts were polite, responsive, and very hospitable. 🙂 They had things ready to go for us for a first breakfast after arriving late at night. The facility description does not quite do it justice. The house is very spacious and good for small groups and large groups alike. This is a very good value to stay in due to its location and amenities.
Wonderful place for a large family by Malcom 07/10/2018
Given the remoteness of the southeastern Utah, Blanding is a perfect central point for day trips to Mesa Verde, Monument Valley, Canyonlands and Natural Bridges. The cabin contained everything we needed and was a lovely place to return to each night. It was a wonderful place for our large family to stay: lots of family areas to enjoy each other's company as well as quieter places if one needed a place to retreat to. The cabin was clean and tidy and the pancake breakfast left for us was a wonderful surprise. Thank you so much for your hospitality
Fabulous place for a group vacation by Elizabeth 06/20/2018
My husband and I and 7 of our friends were in the Blanding area for a multi-day ATV trip with our club. We much prefer staying at B&B's or VRBO's to being isolated in a hotel room, and since you can do most of the cooking yourself, you save money and eat just what you like! We found the Juniper Ridge Family Cabin on VRBO and stayed for several nights. It was a gorgeous house, 3 levels, with a wraparound deck and a panoramic view of the nearby Abajo Mountains to the north and all the way to Shiprock, NM to the south. Hosts Allen and Leonie Hunt are the most charming and friendly couple, and their home reflects their wide interests and gracious style. When a rock fall on the trail caused a last minute ride cancellation, Allen came to the rescue by showing us some alternate routes we could follow. The resulting next day's ride was memorable for all. The home itself is warm and inviting, decorated in southwest motif with musical accents (the owners are accomplished musicians) and nods to Leonie's Australian roots. You can even play the marimba upstairs!

There are five bedrooms (4 queens and a bunk room), and the house has everything guests could want, right down to the ready-made pancake mix in the fridge. The large kitchen is a breeze to work in, even with lots of "helpers", and the big dining table with built-in lazy Susan avoids those awkward reaches across your neighbor's plate. Access is good, with a number of outside doors on each floor, but the spiral stairway between levels is VERY narrow, and handicapped or large guests will have to walk around the outside of the house to one of the other stairways. However, that just gives you more opportunity to cross paths with the many little cottontail rabbits that form the welcoming committee, and scamper about in the driveway morning and evening!

There is a full bathroom on each of the main floors. Supplies are well stocked and the Wi-Fi worked perfectly. A word of caution - the hot water system won't accommodate more than one person showering at a time, or you'll alternately freeze and boil! But it's a small drawback for such a lovely home. There is plenty of parking - our group easily found room to park FIVE truck-trailer combinations. The owners have even compiled a notebook with extensive ideas for nearby day trips.

Our little bunch of friends had a delightful time at the Juniper Ridge Family Cabin, and highly recommend it for large families or groups, or even a romantic getaway.

Wonderful cabin by New Guest 05/24/2018
Five senior men enjoyed a pleasant stay at Juniper Ridge during a hiking trip in May, 2018. the home is spacious and wonderfully appointed. We each had our own bedroom, with the bunk bed room left over. We appreciated the great coffee maker, and the washer and drier. The property lends itself to relaxed evening conversations after each day of rigorous hiking in the surrounding Bears Ears and Cedar Mesa areas.
Great location for exploring SE Utah by Sarah 05/10/2018
A very well appointed house with lots of space. A private location with wonderful views and fabulous night skies! The house was very well equipped with every cooking implement you would want,comfortable beds and plenty of towels. Great location for exploring SE Utah . We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Many thanks
This place is amazing! by Jacob 04/12/2018
This place is amazing anyone looking for a great location with a wonderful view and the nicest people who own it. We loved every moment there. It is a great place to stay and jump off to so many wonderful adventures in South East Utah
Juniper Ridge was perfect by Michelle Warren 11/08/2017
Juniper Ridge is a beautiful home with gorgeous views. Cleanliness, location, and open space in the home is most important to us, and Juniper Ridge was perfect. I traveled through with with my dad for local hiking and sightseeing the beautiful land --- & the recommendations & information on local hikes was great to have in hand & read a first hand account was super helpful in our planning. The home had plenty, plenty of space for the 2 of us, and a fully stocked kitchen - which was wonderful as we cooked for every meal --- & with random spices, which is always nice for travelers! Blanding has a grocery, with limited than most stores. Jerry & Duane were fast responders to our questions & helped quickly when we had a house issue. Thank you!
10 day stay by Cheryl Williams 10/04/2017
Beautiful juniper ridge log home with lovely decks and views. Definitely a lot of space, nice thick towels, comfortable beds, cozy decor. Kitchen had 2 cooking pots and one usable frying pan---a bit skimpy. That being said, there were amaple glasses and dishes, but no serving bowls. The plumbing is quirky and internet connection is sketchy. Would have given a 5 star rating if not for tge aforementiined.

Response: Great to hear you enjoyed the home! Thank you for your comments regarding the lack of kitchen essentials and issue with the internet. We'll get it worked out. Hope to have you back again soon!
spacious, private and clean by Kim 09/26/2017
The home is spacious, private and clean. We very much enjoyed the deck and star gazing at night. There are a couple of things to be aware of, however. First, the home is 3 stories. The top floor is merely a loft area with a futon and a desk. The main level is the kitchen, dining area, living room and only one bedroom and one of the two baths. That means all the other bedrooms are in the basement level. This is accessed by an extremely steep and narrow metal spiral staircase. Not good for seniors and likely not for children, either. We felt this should be disclosed because, while we did enjoy the juniper ridge home, we would not have chosen it if we had known about the staircase.

Response: We're glad you enjoyed the home! The spiral stairs are a bit steep and unique, however, there are doors on the lower level allowing access without using the spiral stairs. Also, we now have a complete 3D Virtual Tour of the Juniper Ridge so guests know exactly what they're getting. Best wishes and we hope to see you again!
Blissfully quiet, with spectacular views by Ray Askew 09/19/2017
If you find yourself in southern Utah and want a serene place to rest and relax Juniper Ridge is the place. Blissfully quiet, with spectacular views of the horizon all around. We saw the Milky Way the night we stayed. Really well stocked, the bed is very comfy, the property open and great for a dog with lots of wildlife to watch. The drive circles around the house so very trailer accommodating. I really can't say enough good about this place. Stay here if you can.
better than expected by Mary Henrie 09/11/2017
The Juniper Ridge was better than expected. It is beautiful. The pictures online do not show the charm of the house. We used this as a base camp for a vacation. We saw Hovenweep Nat'l Monument, Natural Bridges Nat'l Monument, Bluff Fort, Goosenecks State Park, beautiful scenic drives on hwy 261 and 95, and a couple of evenings relaxing on the water of Reclamation Reservoir in Kayaks. It was a great vacation with our family.
so perfect by Nelly 08/15/2017
The night sky, the bucolic country scene and the tranquility of this charming home made our stay so perfect and loved.
We loved this place. by Megan 07/26/2017
It has incredible views and is so very spacious and charming. Don't miss this experience if you are in the area- the home and it's setting is definitely one in a million!
Terriffic Place! by Roselea 07/11/2017
Juniper Ridge was a terrific place for our group of 10 people to stay. We were 2 couples, 3 singles and 3 kids and everyone had a place to be without feeling crowded. The owners of the home took great pride in making us feel welcome and comfortable.
We loved it by Angie Erickson 06/26/2017
Juniper Ridge was a perfect place to stay for our family trip! Great space downstairs for the teenagers to hang out and upstairs the kitchen table along with the Lazy Susan was a big hit with Taco bar night! Nicely situated in Blanding and close to great trails in Arch Canyon. We loved it and when we come back we would love to stay there again!
Amazing for stargazing. by Collins Mathews 06/19/2017
Great house that is off the beaten path in Blanding. Amazing for stargazing.
Great place. by Marian 06/12/2017
Custom home. Surrounded by open land. Bring telescope for stargazing!
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
we are now big fans! by Tracey and John 11/06/2016
We had never heard of Blanding before our trip, but we are now big fans! It was the perfect location for all of our adventures! Your Juniper home is lovely and also very warm and welcoming. We are grateful for your letting us use your home for our vacation. It was nice to meet you and we hope to be back in the near future.

great time by Kathyan and 3 sisters 09/16/2016
Four sisters had a great time at your lovely house. Beautiful surroundings ad located so close to many sights
great home for small retreats by Fleenmans and Eastings 09/05/2016
We enjoyed the clean juniper home and beautiful surroundings. This is a great home for small retreats. When booking, it would be nice if “cleaning fee” was included in nightly rental price… Thank you again.
The house is beautiful by The Leepers 08/20/2016
Thank you for a wonderful stay The house is beautiful. We so enjoyed our hikes to the ruins in Butler Wash and House on Fire. Wore the boys out! We highly recommend a trip to Hamburger Rock, though the falls at Indian Creek were dry. I can see it would be spectacular if they were running… We brought or 14 year old son and his cousin who is from Calgary, Alberta. Great food, great company, great time at juniper ridge. Thanks!
wonderful stay by Li Family 08/17/2016
Thank you very much for the wonderful stay. Everything was perfect, and your juniper home is absolutely beautiful. We loved the decoration and themed bedrooms. Our time in Utah was made much more amazing from your hospitality. You are incredible hosts. We will certainly recommend your home to others. Thank you again for everything!
Thanks for everything! by Kevin and Nicki 08/04/2016
Thanks for sharing your lovely juniper ridge home with us! You are very lucky to be able to live here full time! Thanks for everything!
Most Wonderful Stay!! by The Bleyl's 06/09/2016
We were the very first group of people to stay in the lovely and beautiful Juniper Ridge!! It couldn’t have been more wonderful of a stay! The home is absolutely incredible. I really don’t think there is much that needs to be changed in this home for guests. We give you guys 5 stars! We also love the two of you and thought you were very nice house owners! We did many things on our trip. We spent a day in Mesa Verde (amazing)! We took Allen’s advice and went to Lewis Lodge – it’s crazy that tourists actually go all the way to the actual ruin on the cliff. We decided that Lewis Lodge road is also a total 4-wheeling road! We spent a day at the hidden golf club also. (The Hideout, Monticello) That course is incredible! So pretty! We are big Utah adventurers and are not super familiar with this area, so it was fun to explore and get to know the area more. We would definitely come back here another year! Thank you two again for sharing your home with us. It was an amazing vacation. THANK YOU!!
