About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

Aunt Muriel came to Kanab to visit her sister in the 30’s; married a cowboy named Billy and never left. In the 70’s she built her dream house on the same block as her sister, Ida Riggs, owner of the Cross R Ranch House.

The one story ranch, newly renovated, consists of three bedrooms, two with queens and one with twins located two blocks from downtown Kanab. It also has two baths, laundry, dining area and a fully equipped kitchen. The living room has newly installed hardwood floors, wood burning fireplace, flat screen television and DVD player. There are comfy sofas to relax on and movies to enjoy.

The yard is fully fenced for pets, landscaped and has a patio to barbecue on. Muriel was a prize winning gardener and the yard still reflects her touch.

For large groups, consider renting the Cross R Ranch House ( Wonderful Historic Craftsman Bungalow ) in addition to Muriel’s Place. They are on the same block, one house apart.

Home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

Staying at Muriel's Place made our southwest vacation even more enjoyable!

The place could easily accommodate 6 people, but with only 2 of us staying there we each had the luxury of our own bedroom and bathroom...easy to get a little privacy, a good night's sleep, and get out more quickly in the morning! We took advantage of the well-stocked kitchen to prepare a couple of meals and happy hours at the house, and spent some time each evening on the back patio with a view of the red-rock wonder of Kanab.

There was plenty of storage with large bedroom closets and shelving, bathroom cupboards, and a full sized fridge/freezer. The full sized laundry was a lifesaver and allowed for more efficient packing.

Very comfortable, tastefully decorated, lovely yard and garden! We would happily stay here again!

Great Little Rental

  • 4 of 5

This property is in a great location in Kanab, and has nice amenities like all appliances including laundry, and a little backyard. It is a pet friendly property which is extremely nice. Unfortunately things were not as clean as they should have been upon my arrival. There was food residue and crumbs all over the kitchen counters and inside the fridge, as well as lots of hair (human) in the sheets and also actually in the fridge. I tried to re-wash the sheets, but they are made of some type of composite material that the hair clung to--a simple upgrade to new, white, cotton sheets would solve this. The pillow shams were stained in spots. The bath linens and shower curtain need an upgrade. However, a Best Friends sleepover dog had a destructive chewing incident and the owners still refunded part of my security deposit, which they didn't have to do! They could have kept the full deposit, but were generous and understanding. There is a great view of the K-hill, and it is near 89 with restaurants, shopping, gas station, grocery stores, etc. I would recommend for a family, since there are three bedrooms and two bathrooms!

Affordable, convenient, but a bit dated

  • 3 of 5

We used this as a base for trips around the area.


Affordable, functional kitchen, lovely backyard, two of the bedrooms are quaint. Also, the park and pool close by is one of the most picturesque parks in the country.....highly recommended for a picnic.


Bathrooms need updating (shower curtain has brown stains), single beds had uncomfortable mattresses, pillows were uncomfortable, wooden furniture in bedroom were dusty, next door house is abandoned as is one behind, outside lights do not turn on making it difficult to open doors at night.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your critique of our property. Some of the issues we can control but others not. We have replaced our cleaning staff and alerted the City of the code violations next door. The property in the back has a renovated house. What you observed was his work shop. We have a six foot fence separating the properties also. We appreciate your feed back as Muriel's is our winter home and we live in another state Again, we apologize for the problems and hope it did not impact you enjoyment of Kanab. Lynn & Dianne

Perfect home away from home

The property was just perfect for our home away from home. Located close to everything you needed in town and short drives to all the area attractions. Home is very clean and well maintained.
