An adorable cottage on a private lake, the Quaint Cottage on the Lake is a remote, tranquil retreat perfect for couples or a small family. It’s cozy 500 square foot size can fit up to eight guests though. The private lake offers fishing, swimming and refreshment, a hidden oasis near southwest Utah’s desert attractions. There are two other cabins here on the Camp Jackson property that can be rented for a larger group gathering, the Camp Jackson Chateau (can sleep 12 in main cabin and 12 more in bunk cabins, tent, and RV sites) and the Grand Cabin of Camp Jackson (30 additional guests). One is across the lake and the other is not within view or earshot. All share access to the private lake.

You’ll want to take advantage of the Quaint Cottage on the Lake’s incredible location to explore the area. The cabin is situated centrally among more than a dozen monuments, state, and national parks, including Canyonlands and Arches National Park, Natural Bridges National Monument, and so much more. From the spirits of Native American petroglyph art to the rousing words of Ed Abbey, this landscape has inspired the human imagination for centuries. Your own adventure beckons.
