About the property

The Mustang Mesa Cabin (located 5 miles north-east of Blanding, Utah on the mesa) is truly one of our most luxurious accommodations, featuring wrap around deck, oversize bathtub, dual head shower, TV, DVD, WIFI, picnic tables, fully furnished kitchen, dining room table, all linens, washer & dryer! Sleeps up to 10 people.

A one-of-a-kind vacation home, set all alone on Mustang Mesa with 360 degree views in all directions as far as the eye can see, Colorado, New Mexico, Arizona, and Utah! Absolutely amazing night sky viewing! Relax on the large, wrap-a-round deck in the sun, shade, or under a million stars. The Mustang Mesa Cabin has a way of making you feel extremely 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, 3 bedrooms, 1 1/2 baths, full kitchen, fireplace, very spacious living room, and cozy sofas! (Main level only - upstairs and downstairs are not accessible).

Bedroom 1 has a King bed and an additional queen Futon, plus a sliding door access directly onto the deck, amazing views!

Bedroom 2 has a full bed.

Bedroom 3 has two queen beds

Bedrooms 1 & 3 can be joined by opening the double sliders between them. Pack-n-Play available upon request.

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 and Satellite TV and DVD are provided at no additional cost - that is of course if you ever get bored enough to use them. Our guess is, you'll be far too busy exploring all the popular national and state parks and monuments in southeast Utah - that's right, the Mustang Mesa Cabin is located central among more than a dozen of them! And if that's not enough, your stay includes a 10% discount off any ATV/Jeep/Mountain Bike rental from Four Corners Adventures in Blanding, just five minutes from the cabin!

(Please note: the house is not pet friendly.)

We would like to go on and on, but the photos of the cabin are worth a thousand words! Please feel free to ask any questions you may have, or use the availability calendar to check for availablility online when you're ready. We look forward to your stay!

Guestbook comments from the manager

I booked Mustang Mesa with Canyonlands Lodging because it was large enough to accommodate my family and it was in "dark sky country". The agent communicated very well with me as I looked for available dates and accommodations in driving distance to Utah's National Parks. The only thing it lacked was an outside barbecue which would have been nice.

We happen to come by Canyonlands Lodging by chance and boy were we surprised. What a find! Beautiful, peaceful surroundings. The cabin we rented was so clean and decorated so nicely we decided to stay an extra night. I highly recommend them.

Closer to 5 stars!

  • 4 of 5

Let me start out by saying that the Mustang Mesa property is fabulous. It really deserves 5 stars, if it weren't for the fact that it has only 1.5 bathrooms, which could be a nusance for larger families or groups. Having that said, we managed perfectly fine with 4 people. It is really an oasis away from home in an area that is only accessible by (well kept) dirt roads; which gives it some additional charm. The house is centrally located between Moab and Bluff, which allows for easy access to Arches, Canyonlands, Monument Valley, etc.

The living area and bedrooms are open and inviting. The kitchen has everything you need to prepare the greatest meals (as long as you bring the cook...). I would highly recommend this property for a short vacation: you will not regret it. We will certainly return, the next time we visit Utah!
