Customer Review Letters


Note from Stephanie Caine and party from Texas:      First of all we want to thank you for your hospitality. Your place is beautiful and both of you are wonderful people. We came to Utah for the first time this year and will definitely be back—to stay with you. Excellent accommodations and wonderful recommendations for trail riding. We ride every year in Colorado and we were all challenged this trip on the Paiute Trail. We all smiled the whole way. I am an internet junkie and will give you an awesome review on Trip Advisor. Great meeting you both ! Keep up the good work ! Your place is awesome ! Thank you again from San Angelo, Texas.

Letter from Florida -Bryan and Ana—We had such a great time at your beautiful cabin. You are my idols for living and working in such a spectacular location. Bryan, thanks so much for taking time to pull my family around on the snow sled. Its all the boys have talked about ! I can wait for our next vacation out west. Your cabin will definitely be on our list for things we would like to do. Again thanks for you both making our weekend so special.

Ana and Bryan—My family had such a wonderful time staying at the Bullion Creekside Retreat. This was the first time my family had all been together in the same place in 10 years. It was very memorable and fun! Although 22 children and 17 adults is a big group, I felt the accommodations at the cabin served us well. The large patios and fire pit are wonderful gathering places. The creek, playground, horseshoes, and large amount of SPACE to run around, kept the kids well entertained. I loved the beautifully maintained gardens and wild flowers growing throughout the property. The cabin was immaculate when we arrived and the property is very well cared for. It was the perfect place for our family reunion.    Allison Richins

Recent guests Elana, Joe, Ryan, Alex, Tony, from Las Vegas:       Dear Bryan and Ana,  Thank you for opening your beautiful cabin for us!  We had a great family vacation that was made so much nicer by your warmth and friendliness.  We shall return….

Recent guests Wolfe and Trans Families from Las Vegas: Ana and Bryan,  Thank you for being such great hosts for our family vacation. We had a great time . Nathan and Jeffrey had a lot of fun playing.

Everything was perfect and we hope to return again for another visit.

Guest Mike Lovett and friends from Vidor Texas:  Bryan and Ana: Thank you for our fantastic vacation accommodations. We would not have had the time of our lives during October in the snow without your guidance and assistance. Your knowledge of the trails and fishing advice helped us land some Rainbow and Tiger trout. And Anna helped smooth over our absence from home to play on our ATV's with the necklace and earrings she made for our wives. I did my homework on where to stay before I reserved your house and it paid in Aces. We had plenty of room for my 3 buddies and I, and were very pleased with the amenities in the house. Thanks again and the Texas boys will be back again next year loaded down with Gumbo and Boudain for a good ole Texas dinner with you.   Thanks again Mike Lovett Vidor Texas , P.S.    If you would like you may use this in the Guest Book.

Guests from Murray, Utah said:        Just a note to say Thank you for sharing your home in the mountains, as nice as the home and environment are, it was your friendliness, graciousness and hospitality that really made our visit special. A cabin and peaceful spirit—it all reminded us the deep south, which we dearly love and the laid back non-stressful attitude that surpasses all physical amenities. Happiness, good health & success in your future.  Sincerely & with appreciation.  Leonard and Nancy Todd

Guest Diane Quattlebaum from Syracuse, Utah left this note:    WOW! What an absolutely beautiful retreat !  The pictures on the internet do not do this place justice….so many extras. This place has it all. My children stayed constantly busy on the playground with the tetherball, ping-pong table, tee-pee, etc. We were able to ride right from the cabin to the motorcycle trails. The cabin and grounds are kept meticulously clean. Bryan and Ana are the sweetest, most accommodating owners imaginable. It is the best vacation our family has ever had. Whether vacationing as a couple or group, you won’t be disappointed.     Thanks so much.   Kevin, Diane, Tyler, Travis, and Dawn.

Recent guests from Arlington Washington left this note:        What a great place in all respects. Very relaxing, quiet, and peaceful. We watched the deer daily, rode our ATV’s to our hearts’ content, saw wonderful and awe-inspiring sights. We went H2O rafting, horseback riding and visited the wonders of Bryce Canyon.  We caught brown and rainbow trout in the river. The best was to watch the gradual sunrise with coffee on the deck watching the hummingbirds. Our family will definitely be back !  With all our appreciation...Jacob, Jackie, and Jim Smith

Your friendliness and hospitality has been appreciated. Thanks Again.


Their daughter Nicole Brennan added : “ In reality, it is better than the description in the website! “


Dennis and Dede Johnson from Salt Lake City, Utah wrote:    “Dear Ana and Bryan

 Dede and I want to thank you for your hospitality during our recent stay at the Bullion Creekside Retreat.  We thought it would be a wonderful family event but it far exceeded our expectations.  First of all, your accommodations are really excellent. The setting was beautiful and the cabin first class.  We were able to sleep all our family members in the bedrooms and on the back deck.  Kitchen facilities were great allowing us to keep up with three meals a day for about 19 people at the peak number.           Secondly, your property was terrific to keep young children occupied with the creek and play areas. They were active all day long with something to keep them going.  They all had a wonderful time and thought your place was the “greatest”. The adults thought it fun also as we used the fire pit for bonfires and marshmallow roasting.  

Of course, the real highlight was the surrounding area with ATV access literally across the road.  Our group of ATV and motorcycle riders kept a steady pace exploring trails in the forests and in the open areas. Though we tried hard, we barely scratched the surface of available territory. Of course, that leaves a lot to explore for the next trip.   The best kind of vacation is where everyone leaves reluctantly and is already planning for the next visit. That is what happened to everyone who came.  I am sure you will get calls for future visit dates from most of our group.    We have been trying for some time to get our family together and the Bullion Creekside Retreat provided the ideal location. Thanks again. “



The Hawes and Stephenson families (4 adults and 7 children)  from St. George, Utah wrote: “WOW !!! We had so much fun. Your cabin is great and fit both our families very comfortably. Our kids had a BLAST exploring your land, they loved the teepee, the creek, the playground, and especially the tetherball.  We will be back for sure.”



The Franks Family (6 adults) from Brunswick, Ohio wrote:  “Dear Bryan and Ana,

We can’t believe how fast this week went by. We truly enjoyed our vacation at your beautiful cabin. Can’t beat the view from your deck and your gracious hospitality. Bryan—thank you for the ride over the mountains and your interesting stories. Ana—Thank you for the salsa. You have to send me your recipe. Everyone loved your zucchini recipe. We are looking forward to coming back soon.”


Guests from Alberta Canada:  We couldn’t have asked for a more wonderful time.  The cabin as lovely and you made us feel so welcome in so many ways.  We loved the surroundings at the cabin—it made it so easy to relax and the whole week was delightful. “  Bart, Alonna, Chase, and Kimber Leavitt


Our very first guests said:  Staying in Bryan and Ana’s lovely lodge embraced with warm hospitality, in the middle of beautiful nature makes you feel instantly at home. Waking up early is not difficult as nature is calling; hiking and ATV rides to reach beautiful waterfalls, go swimming in lakes, having picnics with views over massive mountain ranges where mountain goats are taking a lazy afternoon nap. That such enormous variety of nature can be found within such close reach; from valleys with flowers in all colors and scents to rocky desert landscapes and deer families hiding in forests to breath taking views in Bryce Canyon. At the end of a day, while enjoying a Dutch oven dinner or barbecue and having a chat around the campfire under a spectacular sky, you feel you have discovered a new world in just one day....

Bryan and Ana, thank you for the great experience!!   P.S. A pity we didn’t catch a glimpse of Bigfoot“  Ylva Palmqvist, Sweden  and Marjon van den Broek, Holland
