Meet Our Management Team

Sointula Lodge is proud to be managed by the talented team at Vibrant Management. This Utah-based management company specializes in working with small to mid-scale boutique companies.

Vibrant Management was founded in the spring of 2018. It was originally created to manage Cliffrose Lodge, a boutique hotel located in Springdale, Utah. The hotel is located just outside of the gates to Zion National Park. They quickly expanded their services — and their clientele — to provide hotel management, marketing, and consulting to companies in several states, as well as our own British Columbia fishing lodge.

Co-founded by Breck Dockstader and Cody Adent, the Vibrant Management team has since expanded to include a number of talented individuals, each of whom brings their own special skill set. Today, Cliffrose is one of the top-performing Hilton properties in the world. 

Vibrant Management’s Other Properties

In addition to Sointula Lodge, Vibrant manages a number of other properties. Ready to start planning your next outdoor adventure? Check out a few of their other properties below.

Cliffrose Lodge

Located in the heart of Springdale, Utah, with stunning views of Zion’s red rock formations, Cliffrose Lodge is a beautiful boutique property perfect for families, couples, and individuals seeking peace, quiet, and relaxation. The quirky and colorful rooms, with their vintage-inspired decor, all offer views of the botanical gardens, grassy areas, and large trees that fill the property. Just out the back of the Lodge is the gurgling Virgin River. It’s not uncommon to see mule deer grazing by the riverside. Or to spot hummingbirds buzzing from one balcony to the next. 

An outdoor pool and hot tub are located alongside the Virgin River. Both are designed to blend with the surrounding landscape, so you can relax and unwind while taking in the beautiful views that surround you. Five Petals Spa is also located on property. It offers an upscale spa experience where you can enjoy a facial, massage, and more. This is great for treating your sore muscles after a few days of hiking in Zion National Park. You can grab an espresso drink, a picnic lunch, or dinner on the outdoor patio at the on-site restaurant, Anthera.

Watchman Villas

Another Springdale, Utah property managed by Vibrant is Watchman Villas. This property is situated just one mile from the entrance to Zion. It even has a stop for the Zion Canyon Shuttle located just steps away. This vacation rental complex is the perfect basecamp for your next national park adventure.

Watchman Villas, located in the newly constructed Canyonland Village, is home to five unique vacation villas. These range in size from spacious two-bedroom, two-bathroom condos with large outdoor living spaces to a smaller one-bedroom, one-bathroom villas ideal for a couple or small family looking to get away while enjoying more space than your average hotel room has to offer.

Each of the villas features all of the comforts of home, from kitchen appliances and pots and pans to a washer and dryer where you can clean your clothes after a long day of hiking. Roll out of bed and hop right on the shuttle into the park. Spend your evenings relaxing under the stars on your private patio.

While visiting Springdale, don’t forget to stop at Vibrant Management’s other property, located directly in front of Watchman Villas. The Springdale Visitor Center is a great spot to get your questions answered or get a great hiking trail recommendation from our experienced staff. You can also pick up maps and souvenirs like t-shirts, mugs, toys, and more.

The Dwellings

Moving a short drive away from Springdale is another of Vibrant’s properties. The Dwellings is another vacation rental property, located about 25 minutes from Zion National Park in La Verkin, Utah. But instead of condos, here you’ll have a chance to try your hand at smaller-footprint living with a stay in a tiny home. These unique and modern rentals still offer many of the comforts of home, but with a more intimate feel and minimalist designs.

There are six units on the property to choose from. While each offers a different layout and can accommodate different-sized groups, all feature incredible views of the surrounding canyon, plush pillowtop beds, designer sofas, and more. Private outdoor living spaces are perfect for enjoying the incredible views and for relaxing while you sip your morning coffee. Some of the units are even pet-friendly, with a turf patch located on your private outdoor patio just for your pup!

Cougar Ridge

Located in Torrey, Utah, outside of Capitol Reef National Park, sits a family-owned working farm with a Lodge and Casitas that draw visitors from around the world. Cougar Ridge is a beautiful vacation rental property surrounded by stunning red rock cliffs, and home to plenty of friendly livestock. 

The Main Lodge is ideal for large family get-togethers and other big groups. It features four stunning master lodge suites, as well as game rooms, a kitchen, a bunk room, and more. The smaller Casitas offers a more private experience for couples and small families. Each individual Casita is equipped with two bedrooms, as well as a kitchenette, living room area, and a private patio. Some of the Casitas are even pet-friendly!

Similar to Sointula Lodge, a stay at Cougar Ridge can be a vacation all its own. On-site activities like a private rodeo experience, backyard BBQ, night sky party, and more make it easy to customize your visit, while the short drive to Capitol Reef makes this the ideal spot to spend your evenings while exploring this beautiful national park.
