Set on the edge of thousand-foot-high cliffsides that drop away into the ancient canyonlands of southern Utah, Elkheart Cliffs Ranch offers a unique and beguiling wilderness retreat. The 1,280-acre high-desert property was listed for sale by its owner on April 25 for $3.3 million.

This beautifully secluded land opportunity occupies an isolated mesa along the southernmost tip of the Paunsaugunt Plateau, which extends from the ranch toward Bryce Canyon about 30 miles northeast as the crow flies. Dramatic, uninterrupted views stretch out over more than a half-dozen canyons that take on different hues and tones by season and time of day.

The ranch has been operated as an outdoor retreat on Airbnb in recent years, offering guests a peaceful and pristine escape amidst some of the American Southwest’s most dramatic landscapes. Only accessible via a gated six-mile gravel road, the property is bounded by roughly 1,800 acres of public lands for hiking and exploring.

Despite its decidedly remote setting, comfort’s on hand with a well-appointed, wood-hewn kiva lodge from which the views are, quite simply, epic. A bunkhouse, shower house and workshop offer additional living amenities.

Southern Utah is characterized by the world-famous desert canyons, arches and rock spires of national parks including Canyonlands, Arches, Zion and Bryce. Popular as a bucket-list road-trip destination, outdoor adventures here include rock climbing, mountain biking and backcountry hiking. Kane County is an off-the-beaten track region of slot canyons, old mining outposts, desert waters of Lake Powell and Glen Canyon and endless vistas and photo-ops. Many visitors will pass through the area to and from Grand Canyon National Park and other Arizona attractions to the south.
