Not Just a "Cottage", Truly a Home. A Comfortable, Lived-in Ambience

  • 5 of 5

Cliffrose Cottage in Kanab is not just a cottage; it is truly a home. A log structure that rambles over 3 stories, it has a pleasant, lived-in ambience. The kitchen is well-equipped with cooking utensils and spices. The two bedrooms on the main floor and the loft are spacious and comfortable. Perched on a desert hillside frequented by rabbits and coyotes, the "cottage" has a large, second-floor deck where we especially enjoyed sipping our morning coffee and from where we had a splendid, panoramic view of the surrounding red sandstone cliffs and the town of Kanab nestled in the valley. We were in the country, yet downtown Kanab was less than a 10-minute drive away. There is some fine dining in Kanab. In particular, the Sego Restaurant and the Peek-a-Boo Cafe can easily hold their own in any culinary competition with big-city restaurants.

We used Cliffrose Cottage as a base to explore the Kanab area, Bryce Canyon National Park - about a 1.5-hour drive to the north - and Zion National Park which is approximately 1 hour away by car to the west. An unusual treat was cycling along the excellent bike path from Inspiration Point in Bryce Canyon National Park to Red Canyon in the Dixie National Forest. Another adrenaline-inducing ride was from near the Kolob Reservoir in Zion National Park downhill to Virgin, UT. A third cycling adventure was mountain-biking on the excellent JEM Trails near the hamlet of Virgin. The Riverside Hike to the upper reaches of Zion Canyon was also worthwhile. Finally, we especially enjoyed our regular rendezvous with a herd of mountain sheep who were feeding on the scarce vegetation embedded in the slickrock just off the Zion-Mount Carmel Highway. One word of caution: Avoid driving back to Kanab from Zion at night. Deer are frequently grazing along the edge of the road and will sometimes bound into the headlights.

In addition to spending time in Bryce Canyon and Zion National Parks (and environs), we also visited Pink Coral Sand Dunes State Park and the Just Friends Animal Sanctuary near Kanab. Although we had 7 nights at Cliffrose Cottage, our regret is that we did not do more in the immediate Kanab area. The Vermilion Cliffs National Monument is spectacular and is readily accessible from Kanab. Perhaps another time….

Comfortable Home in a Beautiful Town

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I (six in total) stayed at this beautiful home while visiting Zion National Park. The house was spacious and comfortable, with room to easily sleep more people. Having three full bathrooms is also convenient when everyone needs to shower after a day of hiking. We found everything we needed to cook a few meals at the house, and the grocery store is only a 5 minute drive away. While we were expecting to spend most of our time in the stunning Zion National Park, we realized that Kanab itself is a picturesque town with some great hiking and so we spent a full day hiking right in town. One hike is even accessible by a short walk from the house. While we didn't have any children, the house looks like it is set up to accommodate them. We would definitely stay here again and recommend it to anyone visiting the area. Our only regret is that we couldn't stay longer.

Great location, wonderful views and well appointed home

  • 5 of 5

We loved this "cabin" on the mountain in Kanab. Spent a week touring Zion, Bryce and nearby parks with our 6 adult children. House has plenty of room to spread out, and the views are wonderful. Sunrise, sunset and star gazing from the deck are a must. Great weather in March added to our luck in finding this gem. Thanks to the Olson's for sharing their home with us. We hope to be back some day, as one week here is not enough.

Perfect family getaway.

  • 5 of 5

The home is beautiful and relaxing. We brought our three children here to enjoy the outdoors. The house was a great jumping off point for our excursions to the Pink Sand Dunes, Bryce Canyon, and Zion.

Awesome view

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 6 had a fantastic stay over the Thanksgiving weekend. The kitchen was perfect for preparing our turkey dinner. A nice clean place with plenty of room for everyone. Frank and Ivy were a great help with the few questions we had. We will definitely be coming back in the future.

Beautiful views from the deck & close to National Parks,

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time, with plenty of room for our family. The Olsen's were gracious to send a camera battery & charger we left behind. We would highly recommend the Cliff Rose Cottage for anyone seeking a comfortable place to stay while exploring the sights in South Utah & North Arizona.
