Zennest Transformation

Zennest underwent a significant transformation in 2020, led by developer Les Ottolenghi. Fully renovated and restored, Zennest was Les’s passion project and off-the-grid escape during the Covid-pandemic. Les purchased the cabin in the spring of 2020 and spent the summer and early fall bringing it back to life and completely modernizing it.


Perched 8,900 feet above sea level overlooking the Dixie National Forest, the Zennest luxury cabin, Eagle, looks out on infinite natural beauty. Rustic charm and recreational experiences meet 21st-Century conveniences and smart cabin amenities. Perfect for family vacations, corporate retreats, and special events.

On-site recreation includes two hot tubs, 6,000 square feet of decking, Fuze-ball, horseshoe and bean bag toss games, outdoor seating, and fire pits. Inside Eagle, you will find smart TVs and game rooms featuring a retro Star Wars pinball machine. The property is outfitted with fiber optic broadband for superior connectivity.
