About this space
Stay like a rancher on a 280 acre active cattle ranch overlooking the Sevier River – 25 mins to Bryce, 50 mins to Zion
This is your opportunity to enjoy a stay in a recently remodeled ranch home. Rest assured that your expectations will be exceeded. The Ranch House is the Rancher’s residence on the quiet 280 acre Sevier River Ranch & Cattle Company in Hatch, between Bryce Canyon (30 mins) and Zion National Park (60 mins) – yours to enjoy when the rancher is out of town.
The 1800 sf single story house has been recently remodeled with travertine and oak wood floors throughout (no carpet), travertine bathroom with granite counter tops and handmade log beds. The Ranch House sleeps 6 in comfortable beds. The master bedroom features a log King bed and an ensuite bathroom with walk-in shower. The other two bedrooms feature log Queen beds and share the second bathroom, with tub/shower combination.
The Ranch House also features a fully equiped kitchen with stainless steel appliances, a dining area, laundry room (washer and dryer), a comfortable living room with wood burning fireplace, and an enclosed sun terrace to watch the wildlife (deer are frequent visitors), the cattle being herded (during the summer) on the large pastures with the Sevier River meandering throughout and the majestic sunsets. An separate open air terrace makes the perfect outdoor dining area and features a gas barbecue. The Ranch House has central heating and air conditioning.
High speed Internet service (free wifi) and DirecTV satellite TV service are available now. WiFi service will be upgraded to the new and faster fiber optic network being installed in town – hopefully by November 2019.
In the garden, you will find a children’s play area with a trampoline (to use at your own risk).
There are 5 small cabins on the property, within 200 feet or so from the Ranch House: Wranglers Quarters, Ranch Hands Bunkhouse, and The Barn have been rented for several years. Farriers Quarters and The Tack Room are being completed now and will be available by the 2020 season. These cabins may be reserved together with the Ranch House (through separate listings) for your large group gathering. Be advised that other guests will usually be staying in some these small cabins during your stay at the Ranch House – they book nearly 100% during the busy season.
You will enjoy a good night rest in eery silence. If you’re from the big city, it will take some getting used to!
The property is equipped with state-of-the-art electronic locks so that guests can check themselves in at any time, and late check-in is not a problem. Guests can roam freely on the ranch as well as fish (with a Utah fishing license, that can be purchased online) and swim in the Sevier River.
We are always available to answer any questions or give you tips for daytrips or restaurants. Do not hesitate to reach out with any question, prior or during your trip.
You can explore the natural wonders of the area. The Ranch House is located between 2 of the most visited National Parks in the country. Animal lovers can see cattle on the property during the summer and fall and many deer roam the property. You can watch a large array of birds right from the deck, and we have the biggest animal sanctuary (Friends) in the US 45 minutes away.
The Ranch House is located on the Sevier River Ranch in Hatch, a small rural town of 200 people. Locals are very friendly and helpful, and you shouldn’t hesitate to ask anyone for tips and recommendations.
The Sevier River Ranch is very private on the edge of town. It sits on 280 acres and is traversed by the Sevier River and there are typically 100+ head of cattle and 10+ horses on the property during the season.
Note that there are no grocery stores in Hatch and you should plan to bring at least some food with you. The nearest grocery store is in Panguitch (15 mins) and you will find a Walmart Supercenter in Cedar City and a sup
