The SpaceThis is the room that you always wanted as a child, and now you can enjoy it as a "big kid!" ;)
Since there is no window, this room is ideal for those who like to sleep in darkness. A little bit of light comes in under the door, which could be blocked with a towel or clothing.
The Peter Pan room in our bustling Burro Flats High Desert Lodge guest house features solid pine bedroom furniture including queen sized bed (the second largest US size of bed), end tables and dresser.
There is also a not-terribly-comfortable futon sofa sleeper couch that is large enough for one adult who's not too particular about having a super comfy sleeping place. We do try to make it softer and plusher with a bit of extra padding, fluffy pillows and 100% cotton bedding. Please let us know in advance if you'd like us to prepare the futon for sleeping. Otherwise, it serves as a couch in the room.
The Peter Pan Room is a fun place to stay for 1 or 2 ADULTS (or older, well behaved, teenaged kids). Even though it has playful decor, there are many breakable collectibles.
This is a large room (200 square feet) with a nearly 9 feet high ceiling that slopes, attic style, on 2 sides (even a very tall adult can stand up comfortably in most of the room, although they would have to bend along one of the walls in order to not bonk their head).
The hi speed wifi Internet connection is very reliable and excellent throughout the house, allowing you to plan your trips to nearby Zion, Bryce, north rim of Grand Canyon (Open seasonally each year from May 15 - October 15), Antelope Canyon, Lake Powell and more, each just about an hour away.
Or schedule in advance to visit/volunteer at Best Friends Animal Sanctuary, our nation's largest no-kill companion animal rescue, just 20 minutes away.
About guest bathroom access: The upstairs bathroom is down the hall from the Peter Pan Room. It's a large complex with two areas. One area has the 2 sinks and a shower. The other has the toilet and a shower/bath combination fixture.
This and the main floor half bathroom (a toilet, sink and mirror) will be shared with other guests, taking turns so that you will be using the facilities in private, with a usual maximum of 8 other guests taking their turns in the bathrooms that same day.
Looking for our luxury suite with king sized bed, 10 windows and private bath including toilet, shower for two and soaker bath tub for two? Please see our suite listing instead at https://www.airbnb.com/rooms/4378721 :)
STEP LIGHTLY, please: This room is directly above the master suite. Unless you walk very quietly and with bare or stocking feet, then with our booming hardwood floors, every step you take will be heard by the guests below. So extra care needs to be taken in the Peter Pan Room to be exceptionally light-footed. If that seems too restrictive, then if possible we would be happy to transfer you to a different room whenever one is available. :)
In the Peter Pan room for your comfort and convenience:
Two bedside lamps
Drink coasters from local sandstone (carved right here in Kanab!)
facial tissue (Kleenex)
Tinkerbell night light that can be turned on or off
Empty dresser for your use
Hairdryer (in top dresser drawer)
Plenty of electrical outlets
Portable clothes rack
Hand knit, soft "fur" floor rugs (they took Celeste a month to make!)
Access to floor fans and heaters (in addition to central AC/Heating)
Here's what our guest Debbie had to say after staying in the Peter Pan Room:
"Where do I begin?
I Loved it so much here, that I extended my time here! :-)
I Love this room! :-)
So creative and Wonderful!
Absolutely Loved waking up to a quick walk down the hallway,
passing the large two story high Windows, that look out over a
Beautiful backdrop of a Red Rock Mountain Range,
& a large Pasture of Two Chocolate Brown Burros who absolutely
Adore each other!
Celeste is a Wonderful Host, Kind, Caring, Very Considerate, and
Just a Pleasure to visit with!
Very clear on communication and pertinent info,
such a Happy Girl, and makes sure to greet each newcomer as they arrive!
Love the large blackboard on an art easel stand, with pertinent info, such as wifi code, etc.
The surrounding area is Beautiful.
Zion Natl Park is Wonderful off-season,
and I Loved & So enjoyed my time volunteering at the nearby
Best Friends Animal Sanctuary.
Bryce Canyon National Park and the surrounding area is Beautiful & just Lovely as well!
Thank You Celeste!!!! :-) " Guest AccessIf you're looking for a view (the Peter Pan room has no window), come on out to the indoor balcony lounge area, or step downstairs to the huge, just-for-guests common area with living room, dining area, fully equipped kitchen (bring your own groceries), outdoor deck with sunset views, pool table and additional half bathroom. Interaction with GuestsWe're here for you at your level of comfort! At the least, one of us will be here when you check-in to invite you in and show you around (as long as you arrive before 10pm at night... after that you will be given instructions on how to get checked in even if we have gone to bed). And if possible, we'll be able to say goodbye when you check-out, as well.
You will occasionally see us in the common areas as we clean, check in other guests, or walk through the house.
Please feel free to ask us questions or advice about where to eat, what to see, or anything else. We appreciate and enjoy visitors! The NeighborhoodThere are no words to describe the beauty, peace and feeling of freedom and awe that is where we live.
Our property itself is nearly 3 acres, with no close neighbors.
In fact, out back, there aren't ANY neighbors... unless you count the jackrabbits, cottontails, quail, crows, songbirds and other wildlife. You may even get lucky and see a coyote or family of mule deer!
INSIDE our home, though, on a usual night we will have multiple sets of visitors, often each from a different part of the world. This is definitely not a retreat from humanity; sociable guests do best here. :)
The center of town with 2 grocery stores and several restaurants as well as the tourism office is only 5 minutes drive away.
During the day you may hear dogs barking in the distance, but their people bring them in at night for a peaceful sleep.
It is VERY DARK here at night, perfect for stargazing on clear nights! Getting AroundThis is a very rural area. You'll need to bring your own vehicle so that you can explore! Kanab, Utah, where we are located, is considered "The Heart of the Parks" since we are at the center of multiple attractions, each only about an hour away. Out here in the wild west, "only" an hour away is considered very close and so Kanab is a popular destination city. Other Things to NoteThis is a very comfortable, friendly and relaxed place to stay for responsible, outgoing travelers. We welcome guests of every language, culture, age and lifestyle. You'll probably be meeting and getting to know new people!
If you are a "people person" who enjoys mingling with other guests, often from multiple different countries, then Burro Flats High Desert Lodge is
the place for you. :)
