The Space2nd largest home in Kanab on 3 acres with nothing but open country and spacious, sunset views behind. We call it the 'Burro Flats Lodge.' This home and location are so beautiful and it makes us happy for visitors to enjoy it, too.
Hosts on site (in separate downstairs apartment with our own kitchen, bathroom, entry/exit, etc)!
Central home base location! Our town of Kanab, Utah is a popular destination because it is located in the heart of scenic parks & attractions, including:
Zion - 1 hour drive
Bryce - 1 hour 20 minutes drive
North rim of Grand Canyon (open May 15-Oct 15) - 1 hour 15 minutes drive
Lake Powell/Antelope Canyon/Horseshoe Bend- 1 hour 15 minutes drive
Or stay right here in Kanab and enjoy horseback riding, a free tour at Best Friends Animal Society, live entertainment, guided hikes and more; there is so much to do here! Check out the site Visit Southern Utah for event calendar and more.
5 minutes away are two full sized grocery stores, several delicious restaurants and a friendly visitor center.
HOSTS ON SITE: We live on site on the lowest level; leaving 2 stories and nearly 5,000 square feet for visitors. If you book this listing then you will reserve our guest space for your group EXCLUSIVELY (you will be the only guests)!
You will still see us from time to time, though, and we'll be available to answer your questions or help you out. This is a unique situation in that you will likely be meeting and interacting with the hosts.
Two wifi routers ensure GREAT, high speed Internet connection and cell phone service is also excellent.
You can make plans and research online, send or upload photos and videos, attend a virtual meeting, or talk on your phone (Sprint doesn't work so well here; that is the only exception we have encountered)
Perfect for families, sight seeing, business retreats, youth or church group trips, and for sets of hikers wanting a "base camp."
We welcome responsible, friendly guests of all ages, language, culture, religion, heritage and lifestyle.
If the guest capacity is 10, then why does the listing title say "10-15 Guests?" 10 adults can comfortably sleep here, especially if they don't mind sharing a room or larger bed with another adult. Then there is ample sleeping space for 5 or so kids to crash out on smaller sofa beds, etc. So 5-10 adults depending on how much privacy and "real" beds to themselves that everyone needs. And then up to several well-supervised children. Please ask for details if you'd like to know more!
About bringing children: Kids of all ages are most welcome! However, common areas and some of the rooms are NOT CHILD SAFE. There are 4 flights of stairs, lots of breakable decor including antiques, tall (unstable) furniture that could topple over onto a child, lots of sharp corners and edges, etc. Extremely vigilant supervision is required for toddlers and young children. Two (somewhat flimsy) baby gates on premises.
Rowdy play is allowed OUTSIDE ONLY (there is a fenced play area on the property). Guests responsible for damage.
WHAT YOU GET for sleeping arrangements:
5 bedrooms and a very open loft, containing a combined total of:
1 king sized bed
3 queen sized beds
1 full/double sized bed
1 full/double sized futon
3 generously sized individual adult futons
2 smaller (1 small adult each) futons
Please continue reading for details.
Note: Incidental furnishings or bedding colors may vary slightly from photos as we continually update, rearrange, add and improve. Guest AccessTHE LAYOUT:
Take advantage of the large, furnished common areas on the main floor including:
~Large kitchen fully outfitted with basic appliances, utensils and dishes
~Farm style dining table (seats 10 unless you squeeze in extra patio chairs)
~Living room with 3 couches, 24 feet high ceiling, built in benches, large screen TV (200+ cable channels), DVD player
~Gigantic, 3-tiered, stacked 3-high picture windows (panel of 9 windows)
~Covered deck with patio tables and 12 chairs, electrical outlets, propane gas BBQ grill and sunset views
~Half bathroom with toilet and sink
Upstairs common areas include:
~Large, indoor balcony (mezzanine/loft) that's furnished as a lounging area that can also be used to sleep one adult or two kids if the British futon (part of the 15 guest capacity) in the British Adventure room is brought out. No privacy, but this is a coveted place to sleep due to the 'tree house' feel. The many night lights and windows turn a 'slumber party' in the loft into a magical experience. Great for kids (except for small toddlers who might go wandering and fall down the stairs at night)!
~2 hall bathrooms upstairs (1 with shower and 1 with combination shower/bath).
~Closet with board games, cards, some sports equipment)
~Main floor master suite (Bedroom 1) includes private bath that is part of the room. There is a doored toilet for privacy. The shower has two heads. There is an opaque shower curtain covering the entryway to the shower for privacy. The large, jetted soaker tub for two and two vanity sinks are in the open, main part of the suite so no privacy for those.
The main part of the suite houses a king sized bed, a single size futon & lots of windows!
There is also a large walk-in closet that includes single sized futon and can be a bonus sleeping area. The only way to enter or exit this closet/bonus room is through the main part of the master suite. It's great for a child or two since it keeps them close to parents or grandparents while still giving a bit of nighttime privacy to the adults.
~Upstairs 'Peter Pan' room (Bedroom 2) with queen sized bed and single size futon sofa sleeper (no closet; portable clothes rack and dresser provided). No view. Many quests feel that this is the most comfortable of our queen sized beds and request the Peter Pan room whenever they stay with us (others prefer different beds; everyone is unique)!
~Upstairs 'Cowboy Room' (Bedroom 3) with double sized bed plus double sized futon. En suite (in the room) doored bathroom with shower. Window with sunset views of open land and red cliffs behind property.
~Upstairs 'Girly Room' (Bedroom 4) with queen sized bed plus small, SHORT individual sized futon (67 inches/170cm long). This room has its own doored bathroom with shower. Window with sunset views of open land and red cliffs behind property.
~NEW upstairs 'British Adventure' room (Bedroom 5) with window view of front yard and plateaus beyond, queen size bed, dresser (no closet), mirror, hairdryer and ceiling fan with bedside controls. Individual sized futon sofa sleeper could be used in this room or brought outside the room to the loft. Interaction with GuestsWe have our own kitchen, bathroom, entry, etc in our downstairs apartment. Guests will typically see us at check in, check out, if they have any questions, and occasionally in the common areas of the house if our presence is requested. We're here if you need us; otherwise, we'll try to maintain a respectful distance. Unless, of course, you'd like to ask questions, get directions or just chat; we're here for you at *your* level of comfort. :) The NeighborhoodRural, yet within city limits. At least an acre between house and closest neighbor.
20 minutes from Best Friends Animal Society.
If you love Southwestern wildlife then you'll enjoy spotting quail, jackrabbits, cottontails and ground squirrels right on the property (please keep exterior doors to house CLOSED to prevent our animal neighbors from coming inside, though!). Further in the distance you might see an occasional coyote or family of mule deer passing through! Getting Around~Vehicles are required; this is the wild southwestern high desert and everything is quite spread out; we consider it close that so many parks are "only" about an hour away. The property affords plenty of space for free, off-street, outdoor parking; even for RVs or trailers!
~Especially at dawn and dusk there are often large WILDLIFE ON THE ROADS who can collide with your vehicle, causing an accident. Please be very careful when driving, especially if it's not broad daylight.
~Highway patrol in the region strictly enforce speed limits, and speeding tickets can be quite expensive Other Things to NoteWe are 5 star SuperHosts in a very desirable area, so we book up pretty quickly! We currently have a few spots left for this year or for more flexibility, please book next year's adventure today! :) We're here and ready to help if you have any questions after carefully looking over the listing, rules and amenities.
