Recent Kanab reviews

  • Great stay for familes visiting Utah's national park system. (Bryce, Zion)

    "This townhome was perfect for my family of 5. (kids ages 12,15 & 16). The full kitchen (stocked with all small appliances and cookware that you would need) and washing machine/dryer were especially appreciated. The pool/hot tub were steps away from the back patio. We loved the "no key" entry system. Great for multiple people coming and going and no worries about lost keys. The beds/bathrooms were comfortable and inviting and the entire place was very clean. There is SO much to see and do in this area. We recommend spending 2 full days at Zion National Park and 1 day for Bryce. In Kanab, you must rent an ATV/hike the trail to Peek A Boo (slot canyon) and do the Kanab Zipline (minutes from town). My kids loved the caves located right on Hiway 89. You are allowed to hike in (you can see them from the side of the road). They are beautiful sandy caves that younger kids would love too. Avoid the terrible tourist trap that is the Moqui Caves and spend your time instead at the Animal Santuary. There is a free guided tour that lasts around 2hrs where you are with a guide on a shuttle bus with opportunities to interact with cats and dogs. This property is beautiful and my family hiked to the Hidden Lake Cave on the grounds. You must eat at Rockin' V's- it is hands down the best place to eat in town. (It is a little spendy but we knew this) I recommend saving $ by cooking food (2 nice local grocery stores) and splurging on this wonderful meal. The owner/staff were great with my kids . Very accomodating for vegans. The owner was a pleasure to work with. She gave us a terrific 7 day itinerary that we used quite a lot. She made an adjustment on an evening at the last minute and was VERY prompt in returning calls/questions. Highly Recommend"

  • Well Equipped and Comfortable

    "Everyone in our party of three adults said they would be happy to stay here again. The townhouse is well maintained and everything seemed to be in good repair. The double beds and the furniture were all very comfortable. The kitchen is well equipped and includes some basic condiments, coffee filters, and such. You will also find a portable ice box, towels for the pool, and other things to make your stay more convenient. There is a small barbeque and two chairs but no table on the patio."

  • Great, albeit a little quirky

    "Location is lovely (although you do need a car). Quiet (except for the rooster in the mornings and the neighbours dogs if deer or coyote were nearby!). We all thoroughly enjoyed our trip to Kanab and the 8 nights spent at the Retro Retreat were perfectly pleasant. Mary has taken great care in leaving you everything you could need. It's great for two couples (like us) as rooms & bathrooms are at either end of the property to each other. There's also plenty of seating space in separate areas so you can have your own space if sharing with others (although the sun room was very cold this time of year, obviously).The only slight 'negatives' for me (and this is just personal choice) the bed in the master 'ensuite' was far too soft and bouncy (I have a restless husband), and also we are used to having a door on the shower room. The floor is a little uneven in places which made us feel a bit wobbly at times and our friends did have an issue with their toilet cistern on occasions. Having said that, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. It was lovely to come back to the house and see the huge starry sky with no light pollution. It's also great that you can take your dog (although we left ours at home this time). Looking in the visitor book you can see that Mary really does look after her guests and there are many that return year after year from all over the world. If you are happy with a few quirks then I wouldn't hesitate in recommending the Retro Retreat as your base in Kanab (providing you have a car)."

The Lewis Jepson Home was known to be only one of two homes that had a bathtub. Its owner, Jepson, built the first movie picture theater in Kanab. Today, it is a local restaurant. The Bowman & Co. building was built in 1892 and is one of the oldest standing buildings in town. It was built by Bowman & Co. who at the time owned the town’s general store.
