The Historic Deluxe Western Cabins!
The Western Cabins are historic cabins, and were formerly called the Deluxe Cabins. There are two basic cabin layouts. The duplex cabins were built in 1927; the fourplex cabins were added in 1929. All of the historic cabins were designed by the famous architect Gilbert Stanley Underwood. Like the other Zion buildings designed by Underwood, they have open walls with exposed exterior framing. The cabins have been both updated, and to some degree restored. They had been modernized at one time leaving little of the original interior appearance. Those "improvements" have been removed and the interiors now are much more like the original design. The cabins have log fireplaces with gas logs, plus individual heat pumps for heating/cooling. The ceilings are open-beam, stained wood. Standard commercial carpet covers the floors, with linoleum in the bathroom.
The cabins have 2 double beds each. Baths have been updated. The original walk-in closets have been converted into dressing rooms with a second sink, which is very convenient. The furniture in the cabins is rustic and fits in well with the cabin style. Each cabin has a porch with a nice wood bench. The cabins have been remodeled after these photos were taken, they now have new paint colors, new funiture, and new fabrics.
Pioneer Family Cabins
Originally there were a group of standard, or family, cabins. These cabins were smaller and did not have private baths. All of these standard cabins were removed in 1984. The Lodge complex also originally had a swimming pool and bathhouses designed by Underwood. Both have been removed.
