Stay COOL and relaxed on the Mountain, in beautiful Duck Creek! Beat the heat in Nevada or Arizona, and relax on the lovely, HUGE deck.

No place is more spectacular than SW Utah, and nothing is as relaxing and comfy as Red Pines Lodge cabin - a great place to come back to after a fun day exploring the area. You can cook up fantastic meals in the spacious and very well equipped kitchen – or grill your favorite steak on the grill on the deck. Making s’mores and memories awaits you around the great fire pit. And if you must stay plugged into the world, high speed internet and lots of premium TV is here too. All you will lack at Red Pines cabin is enough time to see all the incredible sites that await you here! Come appreciate Duck Creek - and our glorious National Parks - in the summer or fall! Read on for more details......

This light-filled and airy cabin, Red Pines Lodge, radiates hospitality and comfort, and is the essence of 'roughing it in style'. The cabin is situated in a beautiful forest of tall Ponderosa pines, firs, and aspens, just 1.5 miles from the heart of Duck Creek Village. Outside you’ll appreciate the rustic log construction, and plenty of parking. The enormous wrap-around covered deck features a gas grill, dining for 6, and seating for all to enjoy the cool breezes, glimpses of the Pink Cliffs, or morning coffee while watching the sun rise. In the evening, sit around the backyard firepit on log benches, and make s'mores and memories under the stars.

Inside, you’ll love the striking tongue and groove knotty pine walls throughout the house, as well as the columns and railings made from native aspen. Cathedral windows bathe the Great Room in light. Here you can enjoy a cozy fire in the woodstove that sits on its stone hearth, while you relax with a book, TV, or surround-sound music. Also on the Main Level you’ll find the outsized and well-equipped kitchen with dishwasher, microwave, and a gas range for the gourmet cook; the Dining area with seating for 6-8; a pretty guest bedroom with a queen bed and private door onto the deck; and a full bath.

On the upper level is a beautiful loft area overlooking the Great Room, and featuring a computer work center ready for you to enjoy the high-speed wireless (throughout the house). Also on the upper level is the huge Master Suite, with its en suite bath including a tiled jetted tub, and a separate shower.

On the lower level is a large and comfy Family Room with tv and lots of seating, and access to the outside patio area. Also on this lower level is the third bedroom (the Buckaroo Room) with two twin beds; a full bath; and the laundry room with washer and dryer.

This cabin can sleep 8 people, using the two queen bedrooms, two twin beds, the queen sofa sleeper in the Great Room. Two additional are possible using a comfortable queen-size inflatable bed that can go anywhere (although we recommend this for children rather than adults). Any occupancy over 8, however, must be approved by the owner prior to rental. Absolutely maximum occupancy is 10, including all children. With three full baths, one on each level of the cabin, there is plenty of access for all. Red Pines Lodge is perfect for a family gathering or a group of friends.

The cabin sits on a level, forested lot, with easy year-round access. National Forest land is only a couple of hundred yards away, and ATV and snowmobile trails are right at hand. Hiking, fishing, biking, skiing, and a myriad of other outdoor activities are all in close proximity as well. Duck Creek and the surrounding area are truly a natural outdoor paradise.

Please note: The cabin has an 10 person maximum, including children and infants, unless approved by owner. A per person charge may apply. We do not rent to “house parties” or unruly groups. We welcome those who will respect our cabin, and the natural environment of Cedar Mountain. If you are looking for a cabin for a smaller number of people, please ask us about Cedar Hollow, our log cabin in Strawberry Valley that accommodates 4-6 people.

Further Details - And Things to Do: Hiking, bicycling, fishing, hunting, ATV fun, snowmobiling, skiing, and horseback riding are just a few of the activities in the area. Aspen Mirror Lake and Duck Creek Pond, popular fishing spots for all ages, are just outside Duck Creek Village and within minutes of the cabin. Navajo Lake, Cedar Breaks National Monument, Brian Head Ski and Summer Resort, and Lake Panguitch are all a short drive away. The many marvels of Zion National Park and Bryce Canyon National Monument are each less than 45 minutes away. And only a little further away are such amazing spots as The Escalante-Grand Staircase National Monument, the North Rim of the Grand Canyon (about 2 hours to the North Rim Lodge and Bright Angel), and Capital Reef National Park. For antique shopping and theater, visit Cedar City (30 mile drive), renowned for its annual Utah Shakespeare Festival in summer and early fall, held on the lovely campus of Southern Utah University.

Places to Go: Duck Creek Village is 1.5 miles to the west of the cabin. Distances from Duck Creek Village to: Aspen Mirror Lake 1/4 mile; Brian Head 23 miles; Bryce Canyon NP 42 miles; Zion Natl Park 45 miles; Cascade Falls 4 miles; Cedar Breaks NM 15 miles; Cedar City / I-15 29 miles; Escalante-Grand Staircase NM (Cannonville entrance) 57 miles; Highway 89, 8 miles; Kanab 49 miles; Las Vegas 198 miles; Mammoth Cave 5.5 miles; Navajo Lake 7.5 miles; Panguitch Lake 32 miles

Just ask us about things to do and places to see in the area. We enjoy being your 'tour guide', and we keep lots of guide books and information in the cabin for your use. Welcome to Duck Creek, and welcome to Red Pines Lodge!

About Jan or Jim McDaniel, owners

We live near San Diego, California, but we love this area and will never tire of exploring it. And there is no end to the wonders available to explore! This photo of the owners was taken as we hiked in one of hundreds of slot canyons in Escalante-Grand Staircase National Monument, east of Bryce Canyon.

Jan or Jim McDaniel, owners purchased this cabin in 2013

Why Jan or Jim McDaniel, owners chose Duck Creek Village

We have visited and enjoyed many of our nation's parks and wilderness areas. We think Southern Utah is one of the most spectacular areas in the country, with an array of what are some of the most beautiful and accessible national parks and monuments. We have been coming to the area for several years, drawn by the beauty and wide variety of outdoor activities. Five years ago, we finally decided we needed to own a little piece of this incredible place. That was such a good purchase that in 2013 we bought this cabin, our second cabin in Duck Creek, with an eye to living here some day. With breathtaking natural wonders any way you drive, all within close proximity, you can't beat this location. Red Pines Lodge is in a great location, near the Village, and with easy access. It's a beautifully built cabin, has the amenities that make it comfortable, yet it has that rustic, warm feeling we enjoy in a cabin - and think others will too. We love both our cabins - both are welcoming, wonderful places. If you love nature and experiencing the outdoors, as we do, you will be amazed at this part of southern Utah. If you love the feeling of being in a beautiful cabin in the forest, then you will love Red Pines Lodge.

What makes this cabin unique

We love the majesty and beauty of Southern Utah so much that we purchased Red Pines Lodge, our second cabin property in Duck Creek. We also own Cedar Hollow log cabin (also listed on Homeaway/VRBO), in the Strawberry Valley area. It has a special place in our hearts. Most of all, we love sharing this special area with others! We enjoy extending hospitality, sharing our vacation cabins, sharing our knowledge of the area and it's attractions, and making all who stay at our cabins feel welcome and at home. That's our philosophy: to ensure that our guests are comfortable, and welcome, and have a memorable experience. Our brand of hospitality is what makes a stay in either of our cabins unique.

Guestbook comments from the owner

For sixteen years the four of us have visited at least one national park each fall. We always rent a VRBO place. But Red Pines Lodge is one of the very best! Our thanks to Jan and Jim or a great cabin that has everything we needed and was spotless to boot! We used many of Jan's recommendations and she saw to every detail for us! Thanks for a great stay!

Awesome cabin and location

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time. Cabin was in great shape and is located right in the middle of everything. If you are wanting easy access to the state parks and skiiing you cannot do any better than this. Jan (owner) made the trip easier by offering site seeing and travel recommendations of the area that really helped.

Wonderful place in the middle of the trees

  • 5 of 5

We were looking for a place to stay at Thanksgiving which would allow us to explore Zion National park and Bryce Canyon without having to drive to much. This place was perfectly located between both parks and the drive to each park is beautiful. The house is super comfy and has everything you need to have pleasant stay. There was even a roasting pan for the turkey waiting for us on the kitchen counter! The rooms are beautifully decorated and we felt at home immediately. We were 4 adults and 3 kids (5 to 13) who spend most of their time playing outside when we were home. There was plenty of room for everyone. The house is really well organized and clean and the owners friendly and responsive. We would certainly recommend this place and stay there again. There was an information packet in the house that was super helpful. Thank you for letting us stay in your beautiful property.

Please make a trip back to stay at our place again any time! Jan

Fall getaway

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at this cabin. Communication with Jan was very easy, and she gave us a ton of information on restaurants, shopping, hiking, and directions. The house was very comfortable, very clean, and had everything we needed! It was a great location between Zion and Bryce. The hiking nearby was really beautiful too. I highly recommend this cabin for anyone who wants to enjoy the area and relax!

Red Pines Lodge is located in the Duck Creek Pines area of Duck Creek Village, Utah. Duck Creek is surrounded by Dixie National Forest. Equidistant between Zion and Bryce Canyon National Parks, and only 2 hours from the North Rim of the Grand Canyon, the area abounds with natural beauty and year-round outdoor activities for all ages. It's an ideal vacation spot for your entire family. With elevations ranging between 8,400 & 11,000 feet, summers are sunny and cool, and winters are cozy and peaceful. You can enjoy yourself fishing in clear lakes and streams; hiking the trails through the fir, pine, and aspen trees; bicycling, horseback riding, boating and miles of ATV riding in the summer; snowmobiling and skiing in winter. Navajo Lake, Duck Creek Pond, Aspen Mirror Lake and Panguitch Lake are relaxing escapes from urban life. During the fall season, magnificent splashes of yellow, orange, red, brown & gold dot vistas of the forest. Winter brings a complete change of scenery. Snowmobilers and cross country skiers enjoy a winter wonderland on miles of hidden beauty. Nearby you can hike to gorgeous Cascade Falls, or take a short drive out to Strawberry Point to catch a magnificent sunset. Some of America's most beautiful National Parks are close, in all directions. Take a short drive to Zion Natl Park, Bryce Canyon Natl Park, or Cedar Breaks Natl Monument. Or venture a bit farther to Grand Staircase/Escalante Natl Monument, or to the North Rim of the Grand Canyon, or even to Capital Reef Natl Park.
