Lake Powell Resort checks off all the convenience boxes. Rooms have a hotel suite feel, with just a touch more refinement, with some featuring a view of the lake itself. A modern pool, restaurant, and marina access make for an optimal stay for families who want the best of both Arizona nature and the ease of staying at a well-rounded location.

Defiance House Lodge - Bullfrog

Defiance House Lodge is technically a separate accommodation, in Bullfrog, Utah rather than Arizona, but the same group owns this retreat as the above. While more humble, the lodge has phenomenal views and updated, contemporary rooms. But the dreamy porch is the place to be. Boat tours run out of this marina as well, and the onsite restaurant is a plus.

Last but not least for Lake Powell Resorts and Marinas is their Wahweap Campground, where you can camp in classic fashion, or rent one of their sleek, newly built Airstreams. The design is still in line with the standards of the original 1930s versions, yet materials are a bit more polished and modernized. Bullfrog also features a campground along its marina, and one more additional site, Halls Crossing, offers spaces as well.

The exterior blends seamlessly with surrounding canyon views, as clean lines, neutral colors and wood accents form the core structure of this incredible home. Three bedrooms and two baths have a practical, welcoming appeal, but we doubt much time will be spent indoors when at the cusp of so much adventure. However, it’s easy to become hypnotized by the views of the lake from upstairs.

Every wall seems to have a different type of wallpaper!

Guests will likely find this home extremely charming, especially when entering the spacious backyard with various paver pathways, multiple seating options, and lush green grass.

The best part is, many of the town’s best restaurants and shops can be reached on foot in about eight minutes.
