Whether you call it ECO, EARTH FRIENDLY, GREEN, ENVIRONMENTALLY RESPONSIBLE, ETHICAL, ALTERNATIVE, VEGETARIAN OR ORGANIC, Bunk House Inn is a simple, cozy retreat nestled within the canyon walls of Zion in the Virgin River Valley. Surrounded by orchards, pastures, and majestic red cliffs, our home offers a quiet, peaceful atmosphere and a low-impact consciousness. And we are now SOLAR-POWERED. We are 10 minutes from Zion National Park and 2 1/2 hours from Las Vegas, in Southwestern Utah, which is a part of the Colorado plateau, and along the Grand Circle tour of Utah National Parks. Bryce Canyon and Grand Staircase Escalante National Monument are within 2 - 3 hour drive from us. If you enjoy rural touring, there are many backcountry roads all around us.
