10 Airbnbs close to Zion and Bryce Canyon

For two very different experiences just 90 minutes apart, combine Zion National Park in southern Utah and Bryce Canyon National Park on a single road trip. Camping in the parks can be great, especially during the off-season. But if a hot shower and a comfortable bed sound appealing, book a dreamy Airbnb not far from the park entrances. We’ve rounded up some of our favorites, from a tiny house with a killer hot tub to a solar-powered retreat on an apple orchard.

The modern home

This modern, solar-powered two-bedroom home (from $ 239) sits on a 14-acre apple farm in Glendale, about 25 minutes east of Zion National Park and less than an hour southwest of Bryce Canyon National Park, and sleeps up to nine People . When it gets dark, a fireplace on the roof terrace is the ideal meeting place. The hosts also rent a collection of five tiny houses (starting at $ 103) on the property – perfect if you have friends who will join you.

The little house

You can sleep up to four people in this tiny one-bedroom home (from $ 338) that’s on 75 acres on the outskirts of Virgin, about 20 minutes from Zion and two hours from Bryce, but it does is best suited for one or two people. You spend most of your time outside, gazing at the stars from the fireplace or enjoying the dreamiest hot tub in the world. Be sure to request fresh eggs from the local chickens to be delivered for your breakfast.

The vintage trailer
