The ideal Lake Powell resort

Set close to the shore of Lake Powell, this upscale resort offers a comfortable base surrounded by the beautifully rugged Utah landscape. Look out over Lake Powell as you take a dip in one of the hotel swimming pools, enjoy a boat tour or splash out on a dinner cruise to really make the most of the scenery. The hotel also boasts its very own rugged beach for those seeking to relax plus Wayheap Marina and the Glen Canyon Dam are within easy driving distance. The ideal base for a Lake Powell holiday.


We are also now able to offer Houseboat rentals out of Lake Powell.

Imagine all the comforts of home—comfy beds, great living space, a fully appointed kitchen and a solid sound system—on your private houseboat, surrounded by Lake Powell’s breathtaking scenery. One of the best things about houseboating is that even a first-time boater can learn how to pilot a houseboat after just a short lesson, taught by expert staff. Once you’re underway, you’ll be off and exploring one of the largest man-made reservoirs in the USA - home to 96 major side canyons and nearly 2,000 miles of shoreline.

Houseboats are equipped with comfort in mind and include fully equipped kitchens, stocked with plates, bowls, glasses, mugs, pots, pans and utensils, bed linens and towels, a BBQ grill, deck chairs, and water slides.

We have two options available -

A 46 foot expedition Houseboat that sleeps up to 6 people and is available out of  both Bullfrog and Waheap Marinas in Utah and Arizona.

Alternatively we can offer A 48 foot Navigator Houseboat that sleeps up to 10 people and is available out of Waheap Marina in Arizona 

Please note:
Guests will be required to pay a $15 Lake Powell park entrance fee that admits 1 single, private, non-commercial vehicle and all its passengers for 7 consecutive days.
The hotel operates a shuttle between May and September only.

Blast from the Past

Salt Lake City, Utah

My husband and I recently visited Lake Powell for the first time since the early 1980's. It was good to see the hotel was still in great shape and nicely upgraded. Staff, restaurants and accommodations were excellent, despite the many negative reviews I had read.

The View Was a 5 Everything Else a 3

Jacksonville, Florida

I had a 2nd story lake view room with a balcony. The view was incredible and I enjoyed watching the lake while was in the room, especially at sunrise. The room itself was nothing special, I would put it on par with an Econo-Lodge room.
