This quaint and homey two bedroom, one bathroom cottage was built in the 1930's and has recently been remodeled. It is located in the heart of "Festival City USA", Cedar City Utah. It is the "Cottage Next Door" to our larger vacation rental townhomes which are also listed.
The 1100 sq. ft. cottage has two bedrooms, one bedroom has a queen sized bed and the other has a queen bed plus a twin sized bed. A twin size roll away bed is also available to allow sleeping for 5. Each bedroom has a TV with cable as does the living room.
The wood laminate floors throughout the house and the "doggie door" leading from one of the bedrooms to a fenced in area make this dwelling pet friendly.
We like to think of our Red Door Lodging Cottage as a "Make Your Own Bed and Breakfast". A pancake breakfast starter and a coffee/hot cocoa starter pack is our gift to you upon your arrival.
The kitchen is stocked with amenities you will need to make your stay both enjoyable and economical. There is even a crock pot so you can have something delicious waiting for you when you get back from your hike, trip to Zion National Park, or many of the other activities that are available here. The appliances including the washer and dryer in the laundry room are full size.
The furnishings are comfortable, yet not overwhelming. Things are decorated tastefully, without going overboard. We believe that people are looking for nice and clean accommodations that are close to the places that they want to go. Southern Utah University and both theater festivals are a few blocks away.
At 5857 feet above sea level, Cedar City has much more moderate temperatures in the summer compared to its more well known neighbor 50 miles south, St. George, Utah.
This equates to beautiful evenings that can be spent in the open-air seating of several of the Shakespeare plays put on each summer and fall during the world famous Tony Award-winning Utah Shakespeare Festival. They also have indoor productions, if it is more to your liking.
The Neil Simon Festival also has plays during the summer which are held indoors at the Heritage Center during July and August.
We have had a lot of rentals, but the Red Door Lodging east side townhome was our first foray into the vacation rental business. This cottage and the west side of the townhome are our new additions.
A couple who does our cleaning and maintenance live in the separate basement and are available if you run short of supplies or have any other questions or needs. They are very nice and most helpful.
If you are wondering how far away some of these world class attractions are, here is a list of some of the most popular ones:
Utah Shakespeare Festival- .45 miles (about 4 1/2 blocks)
Neil Simon Festival- .27 miles (about 3 1/2 blocks)
St. George, Utah- 52 miles (about 50 minutes)
Las Vegas Nevada- 170 miles, about 2.5 hrs.
Brian Head Ski Resort- 33 miles, about 45 minutes
Lake Powell- 155 miles about 3 hours
Cedar Breaks National Monument- 26 miles, about 40 minutes
Bryce Canyon National Park- 80 miles, about 1 hour and 40 minutes
Zion National Park- 60 miles, one hour and 40 minutes
North Rim of the Grand Canyon- 169 miles, 3.5 hours
Zion Park, Kolob Canyons- 25 miles, 35 minutes
There are a lot of other places to go in this part of the world and we must say that the sites are breathtaking and awe-inspiring! You might come away a changed person with a new outlook on life.
While you may come just to attend one of the festivals, there are things to do year-round here as well. It seems like with the amount of snow we have received this year that Brian Head and the other ski resorts in Utah might be open past June. After the snow is gone they have other things going on up in the cool nights of the mountains. Mountain biking, hiking and lake fishing are always popular.
If you are more adventurous, you might try renting a Harley and letting the wind blow through your hair as you look up at the majestic cliffs of Zion Park without the car roof blocking your view....Read more

We found this rental to be located close to downtown Cedar City, and the University. It is just far enough away so that you feel like you have privacy. It is also close to the mountains and not far from Cedar Breaks State Park. The rental was clean and well kept. It was very comfortable for the two of us.

The photos and description of this cute cottage are accurate. The cottage is very clean, the owners are responsive and there is some helpful information in the binder that the owners have put together for renters. The main living/family room space is very open and comfortable and as the owner's description says, the gated front porch is very handy for keeping dogs from running out to the sidewalk. There's a nice walking/biking trail that starts at one of the town parks and goes up the canyon where there are pretty red rock views. The highway to Navajo Lake and Duck Creek was closed because of road damage but the drive to Brian Head and the north end of Cedar Breaks was nice. Brian Head appears to have a great family friendly ski facility in addition to a separate set of lifts for more advanced skiers. There is also a tubing area where you can get towed up the hill and tube down for just a $15 all day ticket price. Snow shoeing on the unplowed Cedar Breaks road was fun. The Kolob Canyons section of Zion National Park is very close by. The scenery in that section of the park is spectacular and it was very uncrowded. There are some historic buildings in town and some historical markers to read as you walk through downtown. There were no festivals taking place during my stay. At&t; cell phone coverage worked fine. I don't think there is a land line in the house. I would recommend this rental to others.
