You’ll love staying here because of the spectacular 360˚ views on a private 13-acre property. Conveniently and easily accessible directly off Hwy 89. My place is good for couples and solo adventurers. Enjoy spectacular views of Red Rock Cliffs and the Sevier River from your hilltop private TIPI. Fifteen minutes to Red Canyon and Scenic Byway 12, 30 min to Bryce Canyon, 45 min to Kodachrome Basin, 1 hour to Zion.

Staying in a TIPI is a form of camping, so bugs and critters may find their way into your tipi and It can also get cold at night. The TIPI is bolted and tied down onto a platform deck about 2ft off the ground, there’s no floor insulation so be sure to bring a good sleeping bag (and an extra blanket). Please note, currently there is no shower, water, or electricity on the property other than an outhouse which is located a short distance away from your TIPI. I provide a solar lamp and flashlights but it’s a good idea to bring your own as a backup.
Hatch (4 miles South) and Panguitch (7 miles North) are the closet towns. Both offer great places to eat and some unique shopping stores. My favorite place to eat in Hatch is Cafe Adobe. Panguitch has several places I like to eat at, C-Stop Pizza, Cowboys Smokehouse, and the Flying M has a great breakfast menu. Note many local businesses are closed on Sundays and many restaurants close before 9pm. Major retail stores like Walmart are in Cedar City about 1 hour away.
Into fishing? About 7 miles South of my place along Hwy 89, Mammoth and Asay Creek are the head-water streams of the Sevier River. Asay Creek is designated as a Blue-Ribbon Stream, and Mammoth should be as well. Both streams have large fish populations and are easily accessed. There is over seven miles of public access on Mammoth Creek and several miles of access on Asay as well. Both streams are home to brown trout, with some rainbows in Asay, along with mountain white fish.
You will need a car, there is no public transportation. Property is accessed directly off Hwy. 89 (note speed limit is 65 mph). Note if you are planning to arrive after dark there may be deer and other animals crossing the roads, please drive carefully. My place is central to everything in Southern Utah: Bryce Canyon (30 min), Zion National Park (60 min), Red Canyon (15 min), Kodachrome Basin (45 min).
Your TIPI and outhouse are secluded and private, located away from other guests on the property. In-between your TIPI and the other TIPI there is a communal fire pit area for gathering and socializing.
Self Check-Out. Clean and tidy up after yourself before leaving.
I live in Hawaii most of the time however my Mom Jeannie and her husband David live on the adjacent lot, they will be your local hosts should any issue arise during your stay. I am also always available to you via email, text, and phone. You will self check-in and self check-out (clean and tidy up) on your own without an in-person host.
Staying in a TIPI is sort of like camping (but more comfortable), below you can read about what I provide and the basic items I recommend you have with you during your stay (not all are required, I leave that up to you to determine).
1. I provide 4 deluxe sleeping cots, two backrest chairs, colorful Southwestern style wool pillows, colorful wool floor rugs, and a propane gas lava rock open flame burner for heat (bring a long stem lighter). You need to bring a SLEEPING BAG or a good blanket (and a pillow if you need).
2. There's no water on site so you’ll need to bring your own drinking water. I suggest buying a gallon or 2 at a grocery store, you can use it to drink and wash your hands.
3. There's no shower, bring a wash cloth and use your water to wipe down if you feel dusty and dirty after hiking all day.
4. There's no electricity onsite so, a portable battery charger for re-charging your phone is good to have. The solar powered camp light I provided does have one USB charging port, it works at night as long as it gets a good charge during the day.
5. I provide a solar powered light but it's not a bad idea to bring a small flashlight of your own because it is pitch dark at night if the moon is not out.
6. If you plan to grill, there's a small charcoal grill which I provide but you need to bring charcoal, a long stem lighter, and starter fluid.
7. If you want to burn a fire in the fire pit you'll need to buy fire wood (most stores here sell wood), bring some newspaper to get it started easily. The fire pit area is shared between guests so there could be some burning materials left behind but it's hard to say for sure.
8. Bring a trash bag, you'll need to haul your trash out with you when you leave. Local garbage dumpsters are located 3 miles South just before the town of Hatch. Turn right onto the gravel road just after you see the power station and save animals billboard sign.
There's an outhouse bathroom onsite, but don't forget to bring a roll of toilet paper and hand sanitizer, or wet wipes.
If you have those things you should have a pleasant and comfortable night in my TIPI. Let me know if any questions come to mind. Cheers! - Brant
