Blanding is surrounded by more National parks and state monuments than anywhere else in the country and this home is the perfect base camp for all of your adventures in the southeastern Utah/ southwestern Colorado region. Our historic home is located in the heart of Blanding; it has 2 bedrooms and 1 bathroom. There is a queen size bed in one bedroom, the other bedroom has a full size bed, and the living room has a queen size pull out sofa bed. There is also a pack-n-play fold out crib for your convenience. The kitchen is fully equipped with cookware, dishes, utensils, coffee pot, microwave, toaster, etc... Everything you need to make your own meals.There is also a barbecue grill outside. At one end of the main living area you'll find a couch, recliner, TV and DVD player, and at the other end is the dining table. The large utility room has a washer and dryer, plus enough room for a couple of bicycles, hunting or climbing gear, or anything else you need extra room to store inside during your stay. Very clean and comfortable with lots of updates, yet it retains many of the features you love to see in old homes. We have big plans for the yard but it is currently a work in progress.
What makes this Cottage unique
The cottage was the home of Albert R. Lyman, one of the founders of Blanding. One of his many roles was as a shoe maker, and his cobbler shop is still in the backyard!

Home away from home.
We really enjoyed our stay at the Cozy Cottage. The home was very clean and had everything we needed. After a long day of hiking it was nice to relax on either the front porch or the comfortable living room furniture. The laundry room was another plus over an ordinary motel room.
Wonderful cozy cottage.
We had a great stay. The house was easy to access, was clean and welcoming and had everything we needed to enjoy our weekend.
Great Launch Pad
The house was sparkling clean and well equipped for our family of four. It was nice to have space to spread out a bit, and to have a full kitchen, for under (or the same as) the cost of a hotel room!
Kitchen had a blender and crockpot, which we utilized every day. It was so nice to be able to make smoothies for breakfast and to come back to a steaming hot dinner, ready to go, after a day of strenuous adventuring and hiking. Being able to do laundry is a huge bonus too. WiFi was fast and good.
Towels are plush and nice, and there are plenty of them. Lots of blankets and pillows too! The house has a pack and play crib, FYI (we are past that stage, thankfully). Kids seemed comfortable in their beds (full size and pull out sofa bed), and the queen room was nice and airy, but that queen bed is pretty hard. It would be greatly improved with an egg crate or memory foam pad. ;)
I’d definitely recommended staying at this house, and if in the Blanding area again, I’ll certainly consider a return. Thank you for your hospitality and letting us use your place!
Home away from Home.
Every thing that a person would need was here . I would recommend this cottage to anyone.
Old but pleasant
Overall, we enjoyed our 3 nights at Cozy Cottage.
We found the house old, but it was clean , the bed was comfortable, the kitchen had all the utensils to prepare our breakfasts and dinners.
The TV was a little disappointing as it only received 4 channels and none of them the majors ( CBS, NBC, ESPN, etc.) and there was no list even showing the channel numbers for those few — you had to channel surf.
Another disappointment was no one advised us how to get into the property. The day before arriving we finally talked with folks at HomeAway who then emailed us the info. That info should have been sent to us before arrival. We never had any correspondence with the owner.
An interesting event on our last day was to find a notice on the door that all utilities would be shut off the following dayfor lack of payment.Since we did not know how to contact the owner directly, we notified HomeAway. That’s a little disconcerting!!!
It is doubtful that we would be staying anywhere in the Blanding, UT area anytime in the near future, but if we we were to, we would consider Cozy Cottage. (Hopefully with all utilities and improved TV)
First, thank you for staying with us. I'm sorry I wasn't able to meet you,especially with the problems you mentioned.
The TV stations have been restructuring there channels, we have been without several of ours as well. Now we have 40 channels here at home as well as at the cottage. We appreciate the suggestion concerning posting information for the TV stations. That is going to happen.
I'm so sorry you did not receive your welcome message. It goes through the VRBO sit and is supposed to be send 2 weeks before you arrive. My personal contact information is contained in that message.
I don't know what happened with city putting that cancellation on the door. Our bill is always current.
We appreciate you staying in our home and hope if your back in the area you would give us another chance to host you.
I hope you had a good time exploring this area. We love it and are excited to share it with everyone.
This house was perfect for our needs. We were visiting the Blanding/Bluff area and this house was a great location for that. The kitchen was well stocked as were the bathrooms. I was thankful that one bedroom had a fan to stay cool at night. We never ran out of warm water and my kids enjoyed resting on the couch watching the old cartoons ok DVD that were provided.
The only downfalls would be the WiFi didn’t work very well. My phone service is with Sprint which doesn’t work well down there, so having inadequate WiFi was a bummer. Also, the bed in the larger room was very stiff. All-in-all we would stay here again. Thanks Anne for being so accommodating.
