Lake Powell is part of the string of natural wonders in Arizona and the Grand Canyon area. Extending into both Arizona and Utah, there are recreational sites in both states, that center around this mesmerizing reservoir lake. The signature landscape of red rock and dirt pair in the most heavenly way with the pristine waters of Lake Powell. We are veering away from obvious chain choices for this list, and are going to introduce dazzling Airbnbs, and resort lodges, that are the perfect base for a vacation in this iconic part of the United States.

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. Since situated right on a marina, booking a boat or water toy for the day is absolutely a highlight.
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.
Lake Powell Houseboats
Imagine sunbathing on a private deck, cooking meals in a warmly designed kitchen, and waking up to the water literally right outside your window. Lake Powell Resorts and Marinas offers yet another stellar option, that has the best views yet. Houseboats are like RVs of the water and offer a personalized, more separated experience. Choose from economy, deluxe and luxury houseboats (all are super nice), and they’ll train you to drive it, even if a first-timer.
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 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.
Displaying gorgeous views of Glen Canyon, the spacious Airbnb accommodates with three lovely rooms and most importantly, great outdoor space. Soak in the hot tub after a day of hiking, and take in the vibrancy of the night sky in the low light pollution location.
Immerse into the way life was at Lake Powell, before development, in an authentic Native American tipi, on precious Navajo land. Being welcomed into such a culturally enriching experience is truly an honor that should be respected. Ensure to stay on marked trails, and to appreciate the wildlife without disrupting. Snuggle by a cozy fire, and colorfully crafted interiors of these very special campsites, just a few minutes from the water.
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.
Antelope Hogan Bed And Breakfast is listed on Airbnb, and here you’ll experience another ancestral structure of living—a circular, simplistic hogan with a central fireplace and cozy cots. It the morning, indulge in a real deal Navajo breakfast prepared traditionally. The bread focused dish is a hearty start to a day of exploration.
Brand New Home Towering above the Colorado River
Basically, this is a grand castle hovering over lake Powell, and the desertous terrain of this portion of the Grand Circle. Lavish, luxurious, luxe, enormous—what more can we say? If you want to feel like royalty during your lake vacation, stay here. Pamper yourself at the pool and spa space, which meshes visually with the horizon.
Traditional Arizona design meets mansion. The house stuns while still matching well with its surroundings, and the outdoor areas are made for endless nights under the stars. Take advantage of the fire pit and seating nook along with a resort-quality pool and matching hot tub.
Enjoy the Best Views of Lake Powell
