Happy Ours Ranch ~ Utah

Words by Christina Huntington // Photography by Sarah Prikryl // Contributing Photography by Gina Cholick

Halfway between Zion National Park and Bryce Canyon National Park lies a little secret gem tucked away amongst the rolling green fields of Glendale, UT. Winding your way off the main highway onto a sprawling expanse of ranch land, a small dirt trail slowly circles the grounds to finally reveal the sweetest home-away-from-home a cabin lover could ever dream of. Beautifully hand-built by the family who own and run the property, Happy Ours Ranch makes all your tiny cabin fantasies come true the moment you lay eyes upon it. Quaint and cozy, this wood and tin delight has enough charm to tempt you away from ever leaving the property…even with the astonishing draw of Zion and Bryce just a short car ride away.

On the hunt for the perfect pied-à-terre to kick up our feet and rest our heads during our Summer Sirens Utah Roadtrip, we knew we hit the jackpot when we stumbled across Happy Ours Ranch on HomeAway.com. It was everything we could have hoped for and more: a tiny wood cabin (our cabin obsession is real), close to both Zion and Bryce, large enough for a gaggle of gals and our belongings, double bathrooms and showers to accommodate all those ladies in the morning, a full kitchen, a private laundry room to keep our clothes fresh during our weeklong stay, clean, quiet, comfy, cozy, 100% one-of-a-kind unique…and most importantly, it had double queen bunk beds made from logs to really create the girls-gone-summer-camp vibe. Our five girls, one Prius landed straight into a little slice of Utah ranch heaven…complete with nuzzling horses!

The lovely owners, Dave and Karren, have taken great pains to ensure that the bunkhouse is clean, comfortable and stocked with every amenity. They are as available as you want them to be to answer any questions or offer guidance to the local sights. We definitely recommend taking a moment to chat with them about the history of the cabin and the property. Happy Ours felt like such a special hidden treasure, we almost considered keeping it to ourselves. But since it is our sworn duty to always share our favorite discoveries with you, we decided to let you in on the secret. You just gotta promise to keep it in the family!
