Spacious, family-friendly condo at Navajo! Dogs welcome!

This lovely Brian Head vacation rental is a great place to stay with the family during your ski getaway! Featuring a spacious interior and a wonderful location within walking distance of Navajo's slopes and new lift, this quiet and private condo will keep you comfortable while you're away from your own home.

Close to the brand new high-speed quad at Navajo, this condo offers a great location for exploring the Brian Head Resort area, which also includes a small market, a restaurant, and a lodge.

Step inside your rustic home and you will notice the clean and cozy interior. This one-bedroom (plus loft), one-bathroom condo is spacious enough that up to seven guests may stay here.

On the ground level, just past the entryway is a mudroom that is great for taking off any wet, snowy shoes before entering the main house. The many south-facing windows let in plenty of sunshine to keep the living area bright. In the living room, you will find comfortable seating, plus a wonderfully cozy wood stove to banish those wintery chills. Free WiFi is available.

A full kitchen has just about all the tools and appliances you may need during your stay. Go ahead and cook up a nice, hot breakfast for everyone to enjoy together before heading out for the day!

Up half a flight of stairs are the spacious master bedroom and a full bathroom. The bedroom has a queen-size bed where you will sleep soundly. Walk up another half flight of stairs to reach the loft, which would be a perfect place for any children to stay. Featuring a twin-over-full bunk bed, plenty of floor space to spread out on, and an attached nook that serves as a playroom, this space is ideal for younger guests! Two dogs may join you for an additional nightly fee.

Outside, you will have your own private deck (complete with a gas grill!) to enjoy the scenery. In the winter this would be a great, safe place for children to build snowmen or play with the snow that collects on the deck. During the warmer months, you may enjoy sitting out here with a cup of coffee and breathing in the fresh mountain air.

Within Brian Head, you will find plenty to keep everyone busy. Many of the ski areas are very family-friendly, and offer tubing and sledding areas, as well as flat areas for impromptu snowball fights. This area is extremely popular with fans of snow sports, who flock here for the 360 inches of yearly snowfall.

During the warmer months, you and your guests will also have ample activities to keep you occupied! Hike or bike around Brian Head Resort, rent an ATV, visit a nearby stream or lake for some fishing. Take a scenic ski lift ride, zip line, or take the kids to the rock climbing wall at the resort. Drive to a nearby national park (Zion National Park is just 1.5 hours away) and surround yourself with the beauty of nature!

Brian Head has a few restaurants and a small market for groceries, though if you find yourself wanting more options, drive north about 13 miles to Parowan, or go 32 miles to the even larger Cedar City, where you will find ample dining, shopping, and entertainment options.

With close proximity to the Navajo slopes, a cozy interior, and a loft area that children will love, this comfortable and quiet Southern Utah vacation rental will help you experience a wonderful trip to Brian Head!

Great wood stove. Instant hot water. Comfortable furniture. Beds aren't so comfortable. Ski in ski out from Navajo, which was nice for lunch breaks. Maintenance guys cleared our walkway after every snow.
Joel M. Mar 2019
Rented a few villas at this location and very happy until this unit. Broken glasses, broken recliner, broken sliding doors and blinds. Won’t rent 9B again.
Manager response:
Thank you for your feedback! The amenities have been updated and are ready for future guests. We hope we can host you again soon!

Loved how secluded the home was.
James G. Jul 2018
..off the road, back in the trees.. liked aspens & pines & privacy..

Was moved to this condo at snow shoe after the condo I reserved at Aspen's had some significant issues. It was much better for our purposes.
Overall very functional and clean.
A few things to note that could be improved:
Small coffeepot.
Back deck needs to be stripped and restained/finished and some upgraded outdoor chairs would be useful.
No dishwasher. You're it.
Grill was out of propane and would not get hot enough to cook anything.
Bed is a bit soft so if you like a firm mattress, well...
Again, a largely serviceable condo.
Ellen A. Mar 2018
We had an awesome time. The condo was cute had all that we needed. Def will stay again. 😊

We had the coldest welcome due to 9F temps during the day. I don't know what it was like at night because we were very cozy and warm. The snow conditions were great and the kids camp (book in advance!) was amazing at Navajo lodge. We were introduced to tubing. Which we will definitely do again!
Recommend Brian Head for families. Great experience and everyone very friendly and helpful.

Great place

Great cozy location

This house in close vicinity to Navajo Lodge, and with good snow conditions it seems possible to actually ski in and out. The owners have used every decorative measure to make this place cosy. We enjoyed our stay, but noticed a few weak points:
- the toaster did not work
- there was no firewood. Our neighbors in the other units seemed to have plenty
- the heater in the bathroom did not work, and the fan is so loud it can be heard in the whole house
- neither easy chair nor sofa bed were in usable condition
- the patio door seemed permanently locked
- the kitchen has a total of three stools at the counter, and no dining table. It is puzzling how this unit is supposed to sleep 7. It was OK for the four of us.
- on arrival we noticed that all parking spaces in the little circle of homes were occupied by trucks, snow plows, or ATVs. We had to park on "the street", which had been labeled as prohibited due to access for snow removal.
- there is no WiFi, as stated by the owner. When asking where to get Wifi we were told that Wifi is available at "the Lodge". The town has various lodges, and the owners could not explain what the procedures are to get Wifi at any place. With cell reception very spotty it is almost a must to have Wifi. I discovered that the house has a modem with a full-fledged Internet connection that feeds the TV. A Wifi router plugs right into the Ethernet port of the modem and costs as low as $10. It could have been provided, or we could have brought our own, if someone had informed us properly. We saw, however, the neighbor's Wifi signals pop up on our phones, indicating that some owners care for their guests.
At the price level we paid you would expect a house with all amenities functioning.
Manager response:
We are sorry to read about our guest's frustrations and hope we can help alleviate any potential concerns. The toaster has been replaced, and internet has been added. We do mention in the notes for the home that firewood is not provided, the listing states the home can sleep seven if guests are using the sleeper sofa, and the pictures show there is no dining table available. The heater in the bathroom works, the owner has been notified about the chairs, and parking during peak season at Brian Head is always an issue. We apologize for these difficulties and hope to see our guest again. Thank you!

Little getaway with three young grand daughters. They had a blast
Renee And Jose E. Jan 2017
What a great get away beautiful cabin bigger that i tought. Small kitchen but u go for vacation not to cook lol
James M. Aug 2016
The cabin was comfortable and very clean. The whole process was very easy.
Darius G. Jul 2016
The place was cozy and quiet perfect for to unplug.....or not I was surprised to find out that the cabin had internet.
Chandra B. Mar 2016
Loved the condo. It is within walking distance to the Navajo lift. Would stay in it again.
Davis F. Mar 2016
We have stayed at the Moose Hideaway 5 times. It is a nice little place for 2-4 adults. It is old but nice and close to the slopes so we keep coming back. The main complaint we have is that the place is not very large and Vacasa charges $90 for a "cleaning fee". I am 65 years old and could clean the entire place including vacuuming the carpet, making the beds, dusting, cleaning the bathroom, kitchen, cleaning the mud room and deck in less than an hour. Way too much money for such a small place.
So, if you don't mind a bathroom exhaust fan that hasn't worked in over a year and a ridiculous cleaning fee, this place is for you!
Manager response:
We are sorry to see that you are a bit disappointed with our services. The Property Manager will discuss the bathroom fan with the owner, and we hope that you enjoyed having a break from cleaning during your stay with us!
Charles R. Jan 2016
Great time. Unit was well equipped . We had a great experience and we will be using Vacasa again soon.
Michelle G. Jan 2016
I love how cozy the cabin is. The wood paneling, the view from every window is just amazing. My family and I felt very comfortable in the cabin. It's very close to the Navajo lifts so that's a plus. Even if it's only one bed one bath, it has a lot of space! It has everything you need to have a comfortable stay!
Downside is it needs some work, first the water heater wasn't working when we checked in so we had to take cold showers when the temperature is 6 degrees outside. Someone was supposed to fix it the next day, but I had to call 3 times before somebody came and fix it at 3pm the next day. The kitchen light goes on and off so sometimes we have to eat in the dark. A lot of other light bulbs are not working around the house as well. The sofa bed needs replacing as well, I'm 105 lbs and when I sat on it, I sank in. And the most difficult part is the driveway! We have snow chains on but the snow was so bad our car filled with luggages was just getting stuck in snow. I called if they can plow the driveway, they said somebody will but at 5 nobody showed up so we had to park our car all the way at the bottom of the hill and carry all our stuff to the cabin. They usually plow the driveway in the morning, so at 9am my brother took the car and brought it up. We did the same thing upon checking out, we checked out early just after they plowed the driveway to make sure we don't slide down or get stuck in snow.
Overall, we still had a wonderful time! I will still book with vacasa for our next vacation!
Manager response:
Thank you for sharing your review. We apologize that the hot water was not working properly upon your arrival and that the driveway was an issue. The Property Manager has ordered a part for the kitchen light and will take care of it as soon as the part arrives. Thank you!
Kay H. Jan 2016
Small place, very little room to eat and store groceries. Comfortable for 2 people for sure, 4 would be ok.
Manager response:
Thank you for sharing your experience with us. We are disappointed to see that you felt the home was so small. The home has sleeping space for up to 7 and is a great spot to use as a home base while exploring the Brian Head area.
Lauren D. Mar 2015
We've stayed here twice so far this winter - this cabin is perfect for recharging between days on the mountain. If you're looking for a posh, modern retreat this is NOT the cabin for you. But, it's a great functional property with all the living essentials included! There's a nice deck area with a BBQ. The location is more secluded than other Brian Head options (next to the Navajo Mtn) but I actually prefer to be out of the hustle and bustle of the main lodge area. I'd say you could comfortably sleep 6-7 people here but keep in mind there's only one bathroom/shower. The driveway is very steep and could cause issues in bad weather. Finally, bring your own firewood as the cabin's stock has already ran out.
Colby N. Feb 2015
Location was great, very short walk to ski in to Navajo. Pictures showed full stock of wood, but guest book said buy your own. One roll of TP. Lots of dog hair.
Manager response:
Thank you for this review! We are sorry for the dog hair and confusion on this home not providing wood. We are glad that these problem didn't affect your overall enjoyment of your stay.
Briona C. Nov 2014
My friend and I enjoyed the cabin. It was clean and cozy and the dogs loved it! The only downside was we were not told how long and steep the driveway was. It was iced over and required chains or snow tires. We could not drive up it and had to park at the lodge and pack all our stuff up from the bottom of the hill. Don't expect to get up this drive way with normal city tires.
