In beautiful and rugged Utah, ancient rock formations seem to touch vast blue skies, and forested mountains transform into snow-capped peaks.

A haven for outdoor enthusiasts and adventure junkies, Utah ranks highly on the list of America’s most beautiful destinations. It’s not even a fair competition, really, considering it has world-class skiing resorts, fantastic hiking trails, and beautiful landscapes.

That’s probably why Utah cabin rentals are some of the prettiest in the country. And when you throw in the Mighty Five of Zion, Bryce Canyon, Capitol Reef, Canyonlands, and Arches national parks — some of the best parks in the nation — it’s easy to see why this is such an amazing state.

So before you embark on a trip of a lifetime to the Beehive State, check out the best secluded cabins in Utah to truly get away from it all in the quiet privacy of the Wild West.
