Overview

About the property

Duck Creek is a mountain paradise at an elevation of 8500 feet perfectly located between Cedar Breaks National Park, Brian's Head Ski Resort, Bryce National Park and Zions National Park.

Duck Creek Pines is the premier neighborhood within Duck Creek Village due to the tall pines and covenants ensuring that all mountain homes are actually true cabins. You won't see trailers or weird siding on homes detracting from the mountain ambiance.

But that isn't all. Smith and Wesson is the envy of all of Duck Creek Pines with lots four times larger than the rest of the others. Situated on 2.5 acres, Trailside Lodge is the perfect retreat. The quiet of the National Forest insulating the back of the property and stunning views of the cliffs in the distance from the front decks. There isn't a better location from which to launch your mountain getaway.

Reserve now for 50% down and the remainder due 30 days before check in. All stays require two night minimum. Holidays and holiday weekends require 3 - 5 night minimum. Government issued ID required for confirmation of reservation.

We are happy to allow approved pets. We do screen them ahead of time - please let us know about any pets you would like to bring at the time you request booking. We just want to make sure they are well behaved, won't chew things, etc. and that they are not accustomed to being on furniture. Please also give us the age of your pet. No pets under the age of 2 or over 75 pounds will be approved. Thanks for your understanding and for helping us keep our cabin in beautiful condition. Please note that no reservation is final until both the deposit is paid and the pet is approved.

About John & Jan Thomson

We love the outdoors and spending time together as a family hiking, ATV riding, reading, traveling and playing games.

John & Jan Thomson purchased this cabin in 2014

Why John & Jan Thomson chose Duck Creek Village

Duck Creek has been our paradise for over eight years. We rented cabins for several years and finally purchased one in 2011. We continued to treasure our time in Duck Creek and when the opportunity presented itself to upgrade and purchase the cabin of our dreams in 2014 we jumped on it. We get together regularly with extended family and friends here and have made memories to last lifetimes.

What makes this cabin unique

Trailside Lodge offers the best of everything. Duck Creek Pines beauty. Smith and Wesson privacy. Close to so many national parks and fully equipped with everything you could want. The views from the deck and abundant recreation will make you never want to go inside and the comfort and beauty of the inside will make you never want to go home.

Quick Fall getwaway

  • 5 of 5

Had a great time at the "Trailside Lodge this past weekend. Easy 3.5 hour drive from Las Vegas - spent one day in Zion National Park and one day exploring the sites around Duck Creek Village on an ATV. House was a great and had everything we could possibly need. Wonderful star gazing from the decks around the house.

Awesome Cabin...Amazing Getaway !

  • 5 of 5

Our family had such a wonderful time at Trailside Lodge! Jan and Jon were wonderful and answered all of our questions prior to arriving. They made the process so easy. We were amazed when we first entered tht cabin at Trail Side Lodge. The cabin was above and beyond our expectations ! There was something for everyone!! We had a group of 14 and each and everyone had the most amazing time. The cabin was beautiful, clean, well stocked with everyday needs ....we could not have asked for more! The main level was perfect with a large living area, fireplace, kitchen, dining area which accommodated all of our family, a full bath, bedroom with 2 twins, x-box and a large laundry room. The upstairs loft/sitting area overlooked the living area and had an amazing master bedroom with large jacuzzi style tub, and was beautifully decorated. And if you have a large family, kids, teens, fun loving adults...the lower level was perfect! A 75" TV, Air Hockey, Fooseball, Video Games, Corn Hole, a separate bedroom plus the pull out sofas, huge bean bag..and more! This is where everyone hung out most of the time...so if anyone needed a little quiet time, the main level and upper level left plenty of space and time for resting! A fire pit that allowed us to roast marshmallows for s'mores, a gas BBQ and lovely decks to enjoy the fresh air!

The cabin was private yet close to other neighbors...the playhouse was an added benefit for our young ones. There was a great selection of games and movies, so we never had a dull moment. So many trails and nearby attractions for the outdoorsman. We can't say enough positive things about this cabin, ammenities and the owners! We definitely want to return again for a longer stay.

This definitely is a Home Away...from Home!

Fantastic Home in Duck Creek Village, UT!!!

  • 5 of 5

5 adults stayed at the Trailside Lodge for 5 days and loved every minute of it. The views were awesome. The location could not have been better. The lodge was beautifully decorated, very clean, adequately equipped, and super comfortable. Interaction with the owners was very courteous and prompt. We highly recommend this property.

Absolutely beautiful home

  • 5 of 5

This was the most lovely and comfortable home that we have stayed in, and we have had a chance to stay in dozens of homes listed by VRBO. Every detail of the home is well thought out and perfectly appointed. I am so pleased that I chose this home.

This was our first visit to Duck Creek, and we enjoyed exploring the nearby Cascade Falls, and easy access to Bryce. It was too hot to visit Zion , so we'll just have to plan another trip later in the year! We also enjoyed a great meal and dessert at the nearby Pinewoods Lodge.

Thank you so much for sharing your home with us. Cindy

Perfect log home in the mountains Close to Zion and Bryce Top of the line amenities

  • 5 of 5

We loved, loved, loved this home! Everything was meticulously thought out and top of the line. Our teenage boys loved the game room when we came home in the evening. Rented ATV's and took the trail right behind the house for a day of exploring and great photo ops! Enjoyed hanging on the deck and watching the chipmunks try and steal the birdseed. Great appliances in the kitchen - used the waffle iron and the coffee maker and the Vitamix. All the rooms were beautiful and comfortable. Good week to have air conditioning as the canyons hit 106 degrees! The upstairs bedroom was a bit warm at times. But definitely a great home. Highly recommend it. The town was friendly and the lie at Aunt Sue's chalet was excellent!

Owner's Response: Maureen, We are SO glad you enjoyed your stay - and the pie at Aunt Sue's! Thanks for taking the time to let us know! While we don't need the AC often, there are definitely times every year that we are SO glad we are one of the few cabins that have it! We'd love to have you back anytime.
