Everyone is going to love the pools that they have access to! A lower portion has a small waterslide for kids, and the upper pool is more of a great relaxing spot. At the house, there is a private hot tub, and a ping pong table if the family just wants to mingle with each other. The dining table is absolutely enormous, being able to fit 16 people. There are quite a few bunk beds within the home as well.
This luxury vacation rental has the views, amenities and a convenient location 10 minutes from downtown Moab and 20 minutes from Arches National Park and Canyonlands National Park, making it hard to beat. The five-bedroom, five-bathroom property sleeps 16 people with a full kitchen and a great patio for entertaining. A pool, hot tub, outdoor fire pit, four paddleboards and a bocce court are just a few of the family fun activities to enjoy.
If your family is looking for a home base for desert adventures near Capitol Reef National Park, this A-frame cabin in Torrey could be the perfect fit.

Have a huge family? The Bear Mountain Lodge is a 10,000-square-foot six-bedroom, six-and-a-half bathroom cabin that can sleep from 20-40 people with additional sleeping arrangements in the extra bedroom above the garage, air mattresses and bunk beds.

The history buffs will get a kick out of this 3,250-square-foot restored pioneer cabin conveniently located 25 miles outside Park City. The main house has three bedrooms and four-and-a-half bathrooms, and an attached garage apartment gets you an extra bedroom and bathroom to sleep 12 people. Soak in the hot tub after a day of skiing, have a cookout on the gas grill under the covered deck and watch movies on the projector. You may even have a buffalo visitor (but only admire them from a distance).
With its close proximity to Salt Lake City, this six-bedroom, three-and-a-half-bathroom mountain vacation home will be a hit with family members of all ages, especially the kiddos. Boasting as an “Entertainment Paradise,” the house has a theater and gaming room, playground, hot tub, outdoor gas fire pit and a beautiful view of sunsets on the Great Salt Lake. It can sleep up to 24 and even has a garage for ski gear.
We love that this barn continues with the farmhouse chic design in the interior. From the tile, sinks, all the way down to the floors, it all exudes a pleasantly country vibe. Guests will have a couple of different game tables to choose from, so nights are going to be really exciting. Be sure to grab some pizzas! Throughout the home, there are bunk beds, three bathrooms, and a generously sized kitchen to accommodate meal prep.
A pool table, private hot tub, and wildlife sightings—talk about an exciting family reunion. You can even take everyone on an adventurous horseback ride along the rocky terrain in the vicinity. Simply put, the home is gorgeous, and is accented with a lovely kitchen, and comfortable sleeping space for all. Deer Valley is one of those stunning destinations in Utah, that really outdoes itself. It’s hard to imagine, as the state of Utah itself is just breathtaking all together.
The barn just has the coolest rustic aesthetic, and the interior presents luxuriously, but also authentically. Hammocks hang in various places, and bunk beds, along with regular beds can sleep up to 14 people. Be sure to visit downtown Cedar City, where they have great little places to get breakfast and coffee, along with an adorable outdoor French eatery.
We have another rental listed within the same community, with access to awesome pools and amenities. This particular home is a touch more on the refined and elegant side but still can sleep quite a few people. Being near St. George, there are a wealth of restaurants within your reach, and of course the beloved Zion National Park. Bryce Canyon is well worth a visit as well since the park loop is typically easy to take on with a minivan full of kids.
Built in the 1980s, this home was dreamt up by a true Utah cowboy! The kids will no doubt be excited about staying in a home like this, as half of it is wedged inside of a cave—or maybe the cave is just the house! Regardless, the living room sits within a cavernous environment, while part of the house may feel like your traditional southwestern home. Situated near the Freemont River, some seriously great fishing isn’t far away.
Cedar City is an adorable town just above St. George. Nearby, is Brian Head Ski Resort, which is definitely worth a visit, as it has great beginner skiing, and a super speed snow tubing hill. But the family will likely want to spend plenty of time at this large cabin, that has a traditional log construction, and plenty of beds. Take in the views from the upper-level loft that peers straight through the windows, or head out to the deck and breathe in that fresh air.
While this home is more suitable for smaller gatherings, it can still accommodate up to eight people – so that could be two families! The cozy presentation is suitable for any time of year, but especially when the snow is falling. Amenities in the area include a spacious pool, well equipped workout room, and a ping pong table. Right outside the door, on a private patio is your own hot tub.
Sundance is a beautiful year-round destination. If you don’t want to ski, the restaurants within the resort are spectacular – try the fries at the Foundry Grill! They also have a pretty spectacular selection of lattes. The home houses a lovely outdoor seating space that overlooks the river, so that is probably where everyone is going to want to spend their time. Inside, eight beds accommodate guests.
